Benefits of Iodine and Tyrosine
- Prevents iodine deficiency
- Boosts thyroid health
- Promotes healthy cell metabolism
- Promotes hormone health
- Helps relieve stress
Pure Encapsulations Iodine and Tyrosine combines two powerful nutrients that work together to promote healthy thyroid functions and in turn boost complete body health. The thyroid produces hormones which control how the body’s cells metabolize energy. When the thyroid doesn’t function correctly many body systems suffer, the lack of metabolism can increase risks of weight gain, disease, and stress problems. In order for the thyroid to work to its best ability it needs two things, the mineral iodine and the amino acid L-tyrosine.3 Each of these promote thyroid health in their own ways, but together they enhance each others’ effects and create the best possible supplement for total thyroid function and healthy living.
Without iodine the thyroid slows down, making it unable to keep up with the necessary speeds of cell metabolism. The most common method of obtaining iodone naturally is through iodized salt, salt which has had iodine added to it in response to widespread thyroid problems in the past. But as more people turn to healthier low salt diets they lose out on this essential mineral, making iodine supplements a must in maintaining their health. Through cell metabolism, iodine helps the thyroid regulate the creation of proteins and actions of the enzymes which aid in every chemical reaction that occurs in the body.1 Iodine might also aid the immune system in preventing illness, fighting bacteria and other hazards to keep them from being able to wreak havoc on the body.
L-tyrosine is an amino acid which tells the brain when to signal the thyroid to start or stop producing its hormones as needed by the body.2 It also aids in the production of brain chemicals related to mood which can help reduce stress and other negative feelings. Like most organs, the thyroid cannot think for itself and must be controlled by the brain. Without proper signalling, the thyroid produces either too much or too little of its hormones and both incorrect amounts lead to negative health effects. The thyroid can have all the nutrients it needs to function at its best but without the brain sending the right signals at the right time it doesn’t know how to use those nutrients and perform well. With iodine aiding the thyroid in its functions and l-tyrosine aiding the brain in regulating the thyroid’s functions, they cover a full front of thyroid boosting health.
