The normal thyroid gland produces about 80% T4 and about 20% T3. However, T3 possesses about four times the hormone "strength" of T4 - T3 is the "metabolically active" thyroid hormone. The minerals zinc, copper, manganese and selenium are also needed for the conversion of T4 to T3.
Suggested Intake: 1-2 tablets daily as a food supplement or as directed by a practitioner.

The function of the thyroid gland is to take iodine, found in many foods, and convert it into thyroid hormones: thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). Thyroid cells are the only cells in the body which can absorb iodine. These cells combine iodine and the amino acid tyrosine to make T3 and T4. T3 and T4 are then released into the bloodstream and are transported throughout the body, where they control metabolic rate, metabolism and many other vital functions such as cardiac output, heart rate and respiratory rate. Indeed every cell in the body depends upon thyroid hormones for regulation of their metabolism.
