Thyroid Health Info

The thyroid gland is located in the throat, and controls the body’s metabolic rate. It uses various nutrients, primarily iodine, to produce thyroid hormone, and interacts with the other organs of the endocrine system. When it is under or over-active, a person can experience effects throughout the body, from fatigue and weight gain to poor digestive health, hormone health, neurological symptoms, poor temperature control, anxiety and more.

Unfortunately, thyroid disorders - primarily hypothyroidism, but also hyperthyroidism and Hashimoto’s disease – are a major problem in New Zealand, with around 70,000 people prescribed medication for thyroid problems in 2008 and 10% of the population affected at some point in their lives.

Low dietary intake of iodine, fluoridated water, and other endocrine and immune system disorders may play a role in the onset of thyroid disease, and as such, supporting nutrition may assist in the prevention of thyroid problems.

Product Reviews

  • Solgar LTyrosine

    I have been using L Tyrosine for some years as prescribed by my Naturopath.
    It gives me the correct balance for my thyroid and is better than using drugs which in a short time stop your thyroid from functioning, helps with falling hair, and other symptoms which are part of the problem .

  • Seems to help me reduce symptoms of IC

    The thyroid support seems to make a positive difference in my Interstitial Cystitis symptoms.
    The thyroid produces something that produces or contributes to something that helps the function of the t junctions which control the permeability of the gut lining and bladder lining. If it’s all working properly toxins don’t get into our blood stream to cause inflammation and pain.

    Find it to be a rather poor quality of iodine. Go Lugols instead
