best thyroid-supporting nutrientsGetting the right mix of the best thyroid-supporting nutrients can help boost your thyroid naturally.

However it’s often difficult to find a thyroid health supplement that supplies an extensive range of vitamins and minerals to specifically target thyroid dysfunction.

Here are the best thyroid-supporting nutrients:

IODINE TO SUPPORT THYROID HORMONE PRODUCTION

Iodine is one of the best minerals for thyroid health as the body uses this mineral to manufacture the thyroid hormones. And as you know the thyroid hormones are essential to support your physical and emotional well-being.

When taken as recommended iodine is generally considered safe and is normally only required in small, microgram quantities.

ZINC AND SELENIUM FOR THYROID HORMONE ACTIVATION

Zinc and selenium team up to support thyroid health. These minerals are essential co-factors to assist peripheral conversion of thyroxine (T4) to triiodothyronine (T3). This an important step in maintaining optimal T3 levels.

FEEL RENEWED WITH B-VITAMINS

B-vitamins are important to assist energy production, cognitive health, mental performance, and healthy nervous system function.

As a Naturopath I recommend opting for a formula that provides active forms of pyridoxal 5-phosphate (active B6), methylcobalamin (methyl B12), and methyl folate.
