The thyroid gland is a hormone producing gland that lies in the neck region. It is responsible for the production of the thyroid hormones which regulate metabolism in every cell of the body. The thyroid gland is an extremely important part of the endocrine system and it works together with the adrenal glands, pituitary gland and hypothalamus to maintain homeostasis (normal balance) in the body. Disorders of thyroid hormone production may lead to low thyroid function (hypothyroidism) or over-active thyroid function (hyperthyroidism). Low thyroid function may be caused by an iodine deficiency or autoimmune disease (an hereditary condition). The negative effects of low thyroid function on general health are wide and varied and can have a profound effect on many bodily processes. Ways in which one may naturally enhance thyroid function include: Exercise: Moderate daily exercise may increase the metabolic performance of every active cell in the body, placing demands on thyroid function for increased output of thyroid hormone. Diet – “Goitrogenic foods”: Some foods are known to reduce thyroid function and thyroid hormone activity. These foods are known as “goitrogens” and may be found in the highest concentrations in soybean products (including tofu) and cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, turnips etc.). Reducing the intake of these foods may increase thyroid function. In addition to the above, many individuals may require dietary supplement support for thyroid function. Clinicians Thyroid Support is a research-based formula providing nutrients that may be of benefit in supporting thyroid function.
