Sample Report

.

Thyroid abnormalities especially hypothyroidism is a common disorder and is one of the diseases in which natural supplements are widely recommended. Three major cofactors which can significantly improve thyroid function if known to be deficient are iodine, tyrosine and selenium.

Iodine is the classic therapy for hypothyroidism as it is needed by the thyroid gland to synthesize thyroid hormones.

Selenium is another essential mineral needed for proper thyroid functioning. The thyroid gland contains more selenium than other body parts and during selenium deficiency, the body meets the selenium needs of the thyroid even before it sends selenium to the brain.

Amino acids such as tyrosine is a critical amino acid for the building block of all proteins in the body including hormones such as T3 and T4.
