Topic: Fundamental Understanding of the Thyroid and Nutrients to Maintain Thyroid Health
Abstract: The thyroid is a vital endocrine gland. It releases a steady amount of thyroid hormones continuously into the bloodstream. Both T3 and T4 are considered as main thyroid hormones. Both of these hormones are responsible for the metabolism, growth, and development of the human body. These two hormones regulate the basal metabolic rate of the body. Nutrients obtained from the diet play a vital factor in maintaining thyroid health. There is strong evidence that nutritional deficiency, in particular caloric restriction, has an inhibitory effect on the secretion of TSH and on extrathyroidal production of T3. Research evidence suggested specific dietary requirements to support thyroid health.
