💡 Great info for anyone dealing with THYROID, MTHFR, HASHIMOTO... 🌱Here are a few highlighted minerals in the (fully methylated!) XFactorPlus... Also see comments for more info. 🌟 #Selenium: A necessary cofactor in the production of thyroxine (T4), It also converts T4 to the more active form, T3. 🌟 #Zinc: Required for the synthesis of thyroid hormones. deficiency can result in hypothyroidism. Thyroid hormones are essential for the absorption of zinc. The hair loss attributed to hypothyroidism may not improve with thyroid hormone replacement unless zinc supplements are added. 🌟 #Molybdenum: -dependent enzymes function in the oxidative system of thyrocytes (thyroid epithelial cells). They also play an important role in T3 (thyroglobulin) release from the thyroid gland. 🌟 #Boron: Helps the conversion of the storage form of thyroid hormone, T4, to T3, the active form. 🌟 #Copper: Plays an important role in the metabolism of the amino acid tyrosine, which is a precursor to T4 (thyroxine). 🌟 #Chromium: Enhances insulin activity playing a major role in the regulation of insulin release and its effects on carbohydrate, protein and lipid metabolism. Conversion of T4 to T3 is influenced by insulin, so in a roundabout way, chromium helps this conversion. 🌟 #Manganese: Required to transport the hormone thyroxine into our cells. 🌟 #Magnesium: Calcium and magnesium must be balanced in the body to ensure proper thyroid function. If there is too much calcium, thyroid hormones can become diminished. is the regulator of calcium absorption and utilization. 🌟 #Thiamine is one of the B vitamins (B1). Its main responsibility is to change carbohydrates into energy, and it also helps with the digestion of proteins and fats. You need is for proper release of hydrochloric acid in your stomach, which is required for proper protein digestion. Most people with Hashimoto’s have low stomach acid or do not release any stomach acid. #thyroid #mthfr #hashimoto
