At Nutreance, safety and effectiveness are paramount in our mission to provide you with innovative natural remedies. That's why Thyrogard has been carefully formulated using only the most effective natural ingredients with the highest safety ratings, according to extensive clinical research.
But it's not enough to simply combine herbs recommended by scientific studies into a formula. The quality of the ingredients that make up any natural remedy are critical to its overall efficacy.
Just as you can buy fresh fruits or vegetables from a farmer's market that are much of higher quality than at your local supermarket, not all herbs are created equal. In the same way, you may be able to purchase the same herb from two different suppliers, but the purity and potency of the ingredients may be entirely different. For this reason, we thoroughly vet our raw material suppliers to ensure that our natural remedies are comprised of only the highest quality ingredients.
|L-Tyrosine||One of the 20 core amino acids used by cells to synthesize proteins, l-tyrosine serves as the precursor to the thyroid hormones T3 and T4. Research has shown that supplementing with this amino acid boosts levels of T3 and T4, while at the same time modulating TSH levels. In one study conducted in 2007, participants taking l-tyrosine experienced a significant decline in TSH levels, helping to restore balance to their thyroid hormones.|
|Turmeric Root 95% Extract||A perennial plant in the ginger family, turmeric is frequently used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine as a natural antioxidant, which are provided by its curcuminoids. Since the curcumin content of turmeric can vary widely, we only use turmeric standardized to 95% curcuminoids to ensure reliable protective effects against thyroid hormone imbalance. A 2018 clinical study found that curcumin significantly reduced TSH levels and guarded the thyroid against toxic environmental factors.|
|Bladderwrack 10:1 Extract||Known also by the scientific name Fucus vesiculosus, bladderwrack is a type of seaweed found on the coasts of the North Sea, the western Baltic Sea, and the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. This iodine-rich sea plant was found to relieve the side effects of an underactive thyroid in 1811 and has been a safe, natural source of iodine ever since. A study from the University of South Carolina found that seaweeds like bladderwrack helped gently restore balance to T3, T4, and TSH levels over the course of seven weeks.|
|Kelp||Growing in underwater forests in shallow oceans, kelp is a large brown algae seaweed that has been used since medieval times to alleviate issues stemming from iodine deficiency. Today, kelp is a core tenet of many East Asian diets, particularly Japan, where it provides significant health benefits by balancing thyroid hormone levels. In a study conducted in 2014 at the University of Glasgow, kelp was found to fortify TSH levels and was concluced to be a safe alternative to iodized salt for thyroid-deficient populations.|
|BioPerine® Black Pepper Extract||BioPerine® is a patented form of piperine, an alkaloid found in black pepper commonly used to enhance the bioavailability of curcuminoids and other nutritional compounds. While the primary reason for its inclusion in the Thyrogard formula is for its ability to improve curcuminoid absorption, it has also been shown to exact a modulating influence on thyroid hormones. A 2006 clinical study found that piperine improved plasma levels of T3 and T4, while providing a counterbalancing reduction in TSH levels.|
|Vegetable Capsule||Many supplements that you purchase from the store use gelatin capsules to deliver their active ingredients. Not only are these capsules not vegetarian, as they are made from animal parts, but they are also often colored with harmful dyes to obscure their inner contents. But Thyrogard uses only vegan, non-GMO vegetable capsules made from plant cellulose and contain no additional additives like colors or dyes. This ensures that our product is sensitive to dietary restrictions and completely natural for everyone to take.|
|Dicalcium Phosphate||Dicalcium phosphate is commonly used in the production of tablets and capsules as a "flow agent." It is added during the bottling process to ensure that powdered capsule ingredients do not clump together but instead flow through the machinery with ease. This is essential to provide a consistent, uniformly-mixed product.|
|Magnesium Stearate||Magnesium stearate is present in trace amounts in nearly all capsule and tablet products. It is primarily used as a lubricant that makes the pill easier to swallow and allows it to slide more easily down your digestive track. It also serves as an important purpose as an excipient, meaning that it improves the solubility of the active ingredients and assists your body in absorbing the capsule contents.|
