Additional product information
Thyro-Stasis contains a proprietary blend of dietary supplements that help with thyroid hormone balance. Thyro-Stasis contains the nutrients L-tyrosine, chromium and selenium along with the herbal extracts of coleus (Coleus forskohlii), bladderwrack (Fucus vesiculosus) and Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), also known as Indian ginseng. L-tyrosine is a precursor for the neurochemicals dopamine and serotonin and helps manufacture the most abundant thyroid hormone, thyroxine (T4), when combined with iodine. Chromium helps with insulin regulation and is reported to help improve thyroid hormone balance. Selenium is an essential nutrient found in high amounts in the thyroid gland, and helps convert T4 to the active form triiodothyronine (T3) and is beneficial in reducing autoimmune reactions. Coleus root is reported to improve c-AMP levels, thereby improving thyroid hormone production and release, increasing lipolysis, and increasing weight loss. Bladderwrack (Fucus vesiculosus) is a seaweed that is rich in iodine, which is an essential nutrient for manufacture and balance thyroid hormone levels. The Ayurvedic herb Ashwagandha is rich in iron and has been reported to help the body adapt to stress and to help improve thyroid hormone balance.
The thyroid gland and thyroid hormones are responsible for many biological functions, including immune balance, energy production and body temperature control, fat storage and burning, weight control and body composition, nutrient absorption, sleep and stress regulation and cardiovascular health.
About 90 % of the thyroid’s production of hormones is T4 (thyroxin), which is the primary thyroid hormone and made when four molecules of iodine combine with the amino acid tyrosine. T4 is converted into T3 (triiodothyronine), which is the more bioactive form of thyroid hormone.
Estimates are that as many as 1 in 10 people suffer from some type of thyroid disorder. Thyroid hormone imbalances can be negatively affected by:
Chronic stress and cortisol imbalances
Sex hormone imbalances
Insulin resistance; impaired glucose tolerance
Environmental toxicity, such as lead, mercury, phthalates, plastics (including BPA) and pesticides
Excessive alcohol intake
Food allergies; poor food choices, including high glycemic foods like those high in refined sugar and simple carbohydrates (bread, pasta, pastries) and inflammatory foods like gluten, milk and dairy products, processed foods, artificial colors/flavors, preservatives, artificial sweeteners and high fructose corn syrup.
Hypothyroidism, or low levels of thyroid hormone, is the result of inadequate production of thyroid hormone or inadequate action of thyroid hormone in target tissues. Approximately 4.6% of the U.S. population age 12 and older has hypothyroidism. Imbalances in the thyroid hormones and the presence of thyroid antibodies can lead to chronic health conditions, including:
Autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus
Joint and muscle aches/pains
Chronic inflammatory conditions including osteoarthritis
Sex hormonal imbalances including symptoms of PMS
Cardiovascular problems including lipid imbalances, arrhythmias and hypertension,
Gastrointestinal conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and celiac disease
Cancer including thyroid cancer.
Subclinical hypothyroidism, a commonly misdiagnosed condition, is present when there is elevated TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) but a normal free thyroxine (FT4) and T3 levels. The prevalence of subclinical hypothyroidism is about 4 - 8.5% but may be as high as 20% in women older than 60 years.
