Every cell in the body requires the active hormone, T3! Therefore, lack of adequate T3 may produce many symptoms such as cold intolerance, constipation, depression, anxiety, weight gain and hair loss — just to name a few.
Many minerals and nutrients are needed for proper thyroid function, so if you’re lacking any of the common nutrients, you’ll need to take them.
For example, the following are required to synthesize the prohormone T4: Zinc Glycinate, iodine in our Thyrodine, Copper, Vitamin A , B2, B3 (Niacin), B6 (Pyroxidine) –All active B vitamins are found in Active B, and Vitamin C (found in BioFlav-C or Xcellent C). MedThyro T3 has many of these nutrients. Thyromend offers glandular and iodine support.
To convert the prohormone T4 to active hormone T3 requires iodine (found in Thyrodine or Thyromend), D3, Iron Glycinate (assessed through checking ferritin levels [stored form of iron]), Selenium, Zinc Glycinate, chromium (found in our Glucose Modulate or Chromate GTF 600), Vitamin A, B2 (Riboflavin), B6, (Pyroxidine) and B12 (Methylcobalamin)-all active B vitamins found in Active B. MedThyro T3 has many of the nutrients required for this conversion.
