Iodine and tyrosine capsules are largely used due to their role in regulating the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland produces the hormones T3 and T4; these two hormones are important in controlling the metabolism of fats, proteins and
carbohydrates in your body. A healthy, sufficiently active thyroid gland may help you maintain a healthy weight. In addition, T3 and T4 influence your endurance level, as well as your levels of concentration and alertness.
the thyroid gland can’t produce these hormones without sufficient levels of iodine and tyrosine. Therefore, a deficiency of either can cause low T3 and T4 levels. As a result, the previously mentioned essential functions would be
Iodine is not made in the human body, but can be found in certain foods (such as eggs, yogurt, strawberries, fish, and shellfish) and supplements (for example, Thorne Research’s Iodine & Tyrosine Vegetarian Capsules).
Fortunately, iodine deficiency is uncommon in many developed countries; however, it’s the most common cause of hypothyroidism (in which the thyroid doesn’t produce enough of the necessary hormone) in the developing world. The symptoms

are involved in specific brain functions and help influence mood. Low levels of dopamine and norepinephrine have been linked to depression and anxiety, which is why tyrosine is occasionally prescribed to patients suffering from mild cases of
It's also important to note that low levels of tyrosine have been linked to low blood pressure and low body temperatures. Your doctor can determine whether or not these symptoms are due to low tyrosine levels. If your
body is lacking either tyrosine or iodine, supplementation can assist with getting your thyroid in top shape.
