STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION
Iodine is an essential component of the thyroid hormone and is therefore essential for supporting thyroid function. To meet the body's demand for thyroid hormones, the thyroid gland traps iodine from the blood and incorporates it into thyroid hormones that are stored and released into the circulation when required. Tyrosine is an important amino acid that forms part of the structure of almost all proteins in the body. The body uses Tyrosine to help synthesize the thyroid hormones thyroxine and triiodothyronine. B-vitamins are water soluble and may need regular replenishment. Riboflavin and Niacin are two B-vitamins that help support proper metabolic functioning and energy metabolism.
A cross-sectional study conducted in Denmark examined the effect of mandatory iodization of salt on the structure and function of the thyroid. This fortification was estimated to increase median iodine intake to 150 mcg/day. After four years, the population studied exhibited significant overall improvement in thyroid structure and function. (Vejbjerg et al, 2007)
This review stated that the synthesis of thyroid hormone requires the presence of Iodine and the amino acid L-Tyrosine, both of which are present in PhysioLogics Thyroid Support Formula®. (Kirsten, 2000)
PhysioLogics Thyroid Support Formula® supplies several important nutrients that support thyroid function.
PRODUCT BENEFITS: This formula supports the thyroid gland by providing Iodine and L-Tyrosine, that support the synthesis of the thyroid hormones thyroxine and triiodothyronine to promote healthy thyroid function. In addition, Thyroid Support Formula® delivers a unique blend of nutrients including Riboflavin, Niacin and Vitamin B-6 to help maintain proper metabolic functioning, cellular energy levels and healthy skin and hair.

Does it work?
By Tommie Burchard from TN on March 16, 2011
I don't know if it does and I don't know if it doesn't. I DO know I'll continue taking it because I'd like to think it's doing my body good.
Cons:The ingredient list includes gelatin and I'm a vegan. Also, I have to be careful not to take it when I have food in my stomach.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
