Thyrosol provides a number of targeted vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to not only promote healthy thyroid function and help support the healthy synthesis of the two main thyroid hormones themselves, but also to address some of the main symptoms of their under-production (hypothyroidism).

Product Notes:

The hormones produced by the thyroid gland regulate the metabolic rate of all the cells in our body, which impacts our body composition, growth, and weight; our cognitive function, such as the ability to concentrate; and of course our energy levels, among many other things.

Thyrosol contains several micro-nutrients you're sure to find on any well-informed primer on what is needed for optimal thyroid health, including:

* Iodine, the essential mineral the thyroid actually uses to make its hormones;

* Selenium, which not only has antioxidant properties to protect the thyroid gland itself from damage, but which our bodies also need to convert the far more abundant but inactive type of thyroid hormone thyroxine (T4) to the active form, triiodothyronine (T3); plus it can help reduce the number of thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPO) that are produced in those with the auto-immune disease known as Hashimoto's, as well as the severity of the associated hypothyroidism symptoms.

* Zinc, which also helps the body "activate" the thyroid hormones by converting the T4 type to T3, and may also help the body regulate the production of TSH, the thyroid stimulating hormone released by the pituitary gland that governs when the thyroid gland releases its hormones.

* Magnesium, which is also required to convert the dormant T4 hormones into the biologically active T3 type which regulates how cells store and energy.

* Several types of vitamins (A, D, E, and some B-Vitamins) which are either also needed for that T4 to T3 conversion process, or which may influence the production of the hormones themselves or the TSH which triggers when the thyroid produces them.

Thyrosol also contains a large amount of myo-inositol (also known as Vitamin B8), which a number of studies have shown to be able to help reduce the symptoms of subclinical hypothyroidism due to autoimmune thyroiditis (Hashimoto's), especially when used in conjunction with selenium. It appears to have several mechanisms of action: not only helping the thyroid become faster and more efficient at building T4 hormones in its own cells, but also helping to reduce the autoimmune condition's production of the antithyroid autoantibodies TPO and Tg which impair the thyroid gland's performance, and it also reduces the higher levels of TSH which the pituitary gland was releasing to compensate for that. And for those who may either have a dietary deficiency of iodine or some other factor impeding its absorption, myo-inositol has also been found to be useful in improving thyroid functionality by improving the availability of iodine.

Finally, to address some of the more debilitating symptoms of hypothyroidism that may be impairing your life (such as fatigue; low energy, endurance, or mood; or poor sleep, concentration, or work performance), Metagenics has also included a fair amount of Rhodiola rosea, an adaptogenic herb generally used to improve these sorts of symptoms when they result from the body's response to stress.
