Are You Giving Your Thyroid These Nine Essential Minerals?

Did you know your thyroid needs at least nine minerals to function properly?

Decades ago it was believed that iodine was the master mineral for the thyroid. But within the last several years it has become apparent, through research and anecdotal evidence, that there are multiple minerals involved with thyroid hormone production.

In today’s modern medical model, doctors treat hypothyroidism with hormone replacement therapy.. However, the patient is most likely lacking the building-block minerals that the thyroid needs to make perfect cells.

Here are the 9 minerals we recommend for a healthy thyroid.

01Iodine
T3 has 3 iodine molecules; T4 has 4. So it’s safe to say that the thyroid can’t function without iodine. T4 or (thyroxine) is 68 percent iodine by weight, and T3 (triiodothyronine) is 58 percent.

02Selenium
A necessary cofactor in the production of thyroxine (T4), It also converts T4 to the more active form, T3. A total 11 selenium-dependent enzymes have been identified as necessary for thyroid function and thyroid hormone production. If you take iodine without selenium, you can cause selenium deficiency. If you take selenium without iodine, you can cause iodine deficiency.

03Zinc
Required for the synthesis of thyroid hormones. Zinc deficiency can result in hypothyroidism. Thyroid hormones are essential for the absorption of zinc. The hair loss attributed to hypothyroidism may not improve with thyroid hormone replacement unless zinc supplements are added.

04Molybdenum
Molybdenum-dependent enzymes function in the oxidative system of thyrocytes (thyroid epithelial cells). They also play an important role in T3 (thyroglobulin) release from the thyroid gland.

05Boron
Helps the conversion of the storage form of thyroid hormone, T4, to T3, the active form.

06Copper
Plays an important role in the metabolism of the amino acid tyrosine, which is a precursor to T4 (thyroxine).

07Chromium
Enhances insulin activity playing a major role in the regulation of insulin release and its effects on carbohydrate, protein and lipid metabolism. Conversion of T4 to T3 is influenced by insulin, so in a roundabout way, chromium helps this conversion.

08Manganese
Required to transport the hormone thyroxine into our cells.

09Magnesium
Calcium and magnesium must be balanced in the body to ensure proper thyroid function. If there is too much calcium, thyroid hormones can become diminished. Magnesium is the regulator of calcium absorption and utilization.
