What’s in ThyroScript and why?
Thyroid hormone supports cardiac output, a healthy heart rate, your respiratory rate, and basal metabolic rate. Problems here may cause you to feel cold, fatigued or hold on to weight. ThyroScript provides supportive nutrients for a healthy thyroid gland and improve tissue levels of thyroid hormone.
DPPIV. ThyroScript contains a naturally-occurring digestive enzyme that humans make called Dipeptidyl peptidase 4 or DPPIV that reduces absorption of gluten and casein which may harm the thyroid gland, especially in autoimmune disorders.*
Iodine. This mineral is a necessary for formation of and activation of thyroid hormone. There is less than 1 milligram in ThyroScript.*
L-tyrosine. This is a necessary amino acid and it’s a component of both T4 and T3 formation.
Ashwagandha. This is a an adaptogen which supports adrenal gland health and improves thyroid hormone levels.
Minerals. Several nutrients are also necessary for conversion of T4 to T3, including the minerals selenium, zinc, and copper.
Selenium. This is helpful in reducing auto antibodies to the thyroid gland.
Vitamin B12. insufficiency appears to interfere with the activity of thyroid hormones. We use only the biologically active form methylcobalamin.
Mullein leaf. This possesses antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties. It has anti-inflammatory properties which could help reduce inflammation of the thyroid gland.
Oxyphyte. Conversion of T4 to T3 can be inhibited by heavy metal toxicity and lipid peroxidation. The proprietary antioxidant blend called Oxyphyte is in ThyroScript and is intended to counterbalance this inhibition.* Among other compounds, Oxyphyte contains grape seed extract and polygonum root extract.
