MedCaps T3 has been formulated to provide your body with the nutrients and herbs it needs for proper thyroid health. Your thyroid glands have the important job of producing sufficient quantities of two hormones: thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). These hormones travel through the bloodstream and regulate the metabolism of living cells.
These two hormones are largely made up of iodine‚ making iodine a vital part of those processes. Unfortunately‚ your body doesn’t make any of this trace element naturally; it can only be obtained by either eating certain foods (such as eggs and fish) or taking supplements. Iodine deficiency is uncommon in many developed countries‚ but it’s the most common cause of hypothyroidism (a condition in which the thyroid doesn’t produce enough of the necessary hormones and is underactive) in the developing world. The symptoms of this deficiency also include goiter (an enlarged thyroid)‚ pregnancy complications‚ and mental problems. Due to its importance‚ each serving of Xymogen’s MedCaps T3 contains 100% of the recommended daily value of iodine.
MedCaps T3 also contains vitamin A‚ vitamin D‚ and vitamin E; research has shown that deficiencies in these vitamins may have negative effects on T3 and T4 metabolism. Vitamins E and rosemary are also included in MedCaps T3 for their antioxidant properties‚ since studies suggest that antioxidants help protect thyroid cells and tissue from oxidation‚ which can inhibit their functioning.
Other herbal ingredients‚ such as ashwagandha and guggul extract‚ may promote the conversion of T4 into T3 conversion; T3 is a more active form of T4. Ashwagandha is an adaptogen that has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine‚ which animal research has suggested may be capable of stimulating thyroid function.
This bottle of MedCaps T3 contains 120 capsules‚ and should last you about one month. MedCaps T3 by Xymogen does not contain wheat‚ gluten‚ corn protein‚ yeast‚ soy‚ dairy products‚ artificial colors‚ sweeteners‚ or preservatives.
