Product Description

Ortho Molecular Products Thyrotain

Thyrotain is a comprehensive formula designed to support thyroid health. Thyrotain includes iodine, which makes up the backbone of the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). The addition of zinc, selenium, and vitamin A provide a source of vitamins and minerals to support biological functions, which play a key role in the maintenance of good health. Curcumin, along with the antioxidants vitamin C and E and N-acetyl cysteine (NAC), provides antioxidants that help protect cells against oxidative damage caused by free radicals.

Overview

The thyroid gland, located in the neck below the Adam’s apple, produces T4 and T3 hormones that regulate cell metabolism. In this process, thyroxine is converted into the metabolically active hormone T3. Thyroid hormones are required for mitochondrial metabolism in every cell of the body, making a deficiency in thyroid hormones a detriment to virtually all bodily functions.

Lifestyle factors, environmental toxins and nutrient deficiencies can negatively impact thyroid hormone production. A number of nutrients are required to produce thyroid hormones and to help convert T4 into T3. Heavy metals, such as mercury, lead and cadmium, as well as other chemical contaminants, can also block the conversion of T4 to T3. In addition, long-term stress can lead to increased production of the adrenal hormone cortisol. Excessive levels of cortisol can block the conversion of T4 to T3 and also increase the production of reverse T3 (RT3). RT3 is an isomer of triiodothyronine that competes with T3

at the receptor sites. Conversely, exercise positively impacts the thyroid gland by stimulating hormone secretion and increasing tissue sensitivity to thyroid hormones.1

Vitamins and Minerals

A key component of thyroid hormones is iodine. Iodine is an essential trace mineral and is necessary for the synthesis of thyroid hormones, as it is one of the most important components of the hormones T4 and T3. The thyroid gland absorbs iodine from the blood and incorporates it into thyroid hormones.

Normal thyroid status is dependent on adequate levels of many trace minerals for the synthesis and metabolism of thyroid hormones.

Antioxidants (Curcumin, Vitamins C and E, and N-Acetyl Cysteine)
Curcumin (Curcuma longa), along with vitamins C and E, has been shown to protect against oxidative stress.

Recommended Dose
