Thyro-Set contains iodine and selenium to support healthy thyroid function. The thyroid is a vital gland in the endocrine system. It not only acts as the body's thermostat but is one of the major controllers of metabolism.
The thyroid gland contains the highest levels of iodine in the body. Iodine is used to produce tyrosine-based thyroid hormones, which are critical regulators of growth and metabolism. Zinc and manganese are also key mediators of metabolic reactions, and research indicates they may have a role in the metabolism of thyroid hormones.
The thyroid gland also contains high levels of selenium. This key mineral is involved in the antioxidant defence system and helps to decrease free radical damage in cells. Thyro-Set also contains Ashwagandha and Coleus forskohlii, important herbs used for centuries in traditional Ayurvedic medicine.
