Your thyroid gland produces the hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) which are essential to the proper development and functions of cells in your body. Thyroid hormones regulate the metabolism of fats, proteins and carbohydrates from the food you eat. Thyroid hormone affects how these compounds produce energy. Individual thyroid hormones have several critical functions in your body, especially as it pertains to metabolism and your cardiovascular system. For example, T4 supports cardiac output, a healthy heart rate, your respiratory rate, and basal metabolic rate (BMR). A low BMR may cause you to feel cold, fatigued and hold on to weight.
ThyroScript provides supportive nutrients for a healthy thyroid gland.* Not only does ThyroScript support healthy thyroid function, it also provides nutrients necessary for conversion of T4 to T3 in the cells and tissues outside your thyroid gland.* ThyroScript contains a naturally-occurring digestive enzyme that humans make called “Dipeptidyl peptidase 4” or DPP-IV that reduces absorption of gluten and casein. Those are the proteins found in wheat and dairy, respectively. Gluten and casein have been shown to attack the thyroid gland in sensitive individuals. DPP-IV is added as protection for your thyroid gland, regardless of your choice to consume foods containing gluten and dairy.
Iodine is necessary for formation of T4, and there is less than 1 milligram in ThyroScript. The amino acid L-tyrosine is a necessary component of both T4 and T3 formation.* Animal studies indicate the Ayurvedic botanical ashwagandha can improve T4 concentrations.*
Ashwagandha is known as an adrenal adaptogen. When the adrenals go into a state of ‘overdrive’ they produce a lot of cortisol. High cortisol levels can interfere with thyroid function, resulting in low T4 or poor conversion of T4 to the active form, T3. Botanicals that support normal levels of cortisol may be of benefit for this population.*
Several nutrients are also necessary for conversion of T4 to T3, including the minerals selenium, zinc, and copper.* ThyroScript contains vitamin B12 because its insufficiency appears to interfere with the activity of thyroid hormones.* Conversion of T4 to T3 can be inhibited by heavy metal toxicity and lipid peroxidation; the antioxidant blend “Oxyphyte” may counterbalance this inhibition.* This blend contains grape seed extract and polygonum root extract.
