- Potassium Iodide—a pure form of iodine that’s easily absorbed to promote the production of thyroid hormones.
- Free-form L-tyrosine—an amino acid that is essential in protein formation and metabolism.
One of the most important glands inside your body is your thyroid gland. It’s located in the lower part of your neck‚ and functions as the main producer of your thyroid hormones. Thyroid hormones are chemical messengers that play a role in energy production‚ regulating body temperature‚ and supporting vital organs.
Iodine and tyrosine are important minerals that your body needs in order to keep your thyroid gland healthy‚ by aiding in the production and release of thyroid hormones. The former is an essential element that may support the formation of nerves‚ bones‚ teeth‚ hair‚ and skin tissues. Tyrosine‚ meanwhile‚ is an essential amino acid that forms proteins while being essential to your metabolism.
Without iodine and tyrosine‚ you could suffer from thyroid hormone deficiency. This could lead to diseases that affect your thyroid gland‚ such as goiter‚ which is commonly seen as cystic swelling in the lower part of the neck. Furthermore‚ if you’re pregnant‚ iodine deficiency may negatively impact the growth of your baby. The World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated that about 40% of the world’s population is at risk of developing iodine and tyrosine deficiencies‚ though this is relatively rare in the developed world. Your doctor may suspect deficiencies if you’re showing changes in the skin‚ low body temperature‚ muscular deterioration‚ fatigue‚ and neck swelling. A blood test is often required to confirm a diagnosis of thyroid hormone deficiency.

Great for thyroid support
I've used Iodine and Tyrosine by Pure Encapsulations for about a year to help support my thyroid as I have a tendency towards being hypoactive (under active). It seems to really help keep my energy up and metabolism working well.
