bVital Thyroid Support
Hormone Specific Formulation
bVital Thyroid Support is a formula of iodine-containing seaweeds and herbs which contain phytothyroidogenic properties, as well as phyto-thyroid-receptor agonists. This formulation is designed to promote optimal function of thyroid hormones by maintaining the health of thyroid hormone-producing tissues and by supporting the healthy function of tissues that respond to thyroid hormones.†
bVital Thyroid Support is a Hormone Specific Formulation™ formulated by Dr. Joseph J Collins, created to support the optimal function of specific hormones through the use of hormone specific adaptogens, hormone specific agonists and hormone specific functional mimetics. This formulation may be used to as part of a hormone health program with dietary and nutrient support. In addition, this formulation may be used by clinicians as an adjuvant to support optimal hormone health in patients who have been prescribed bioidentical hormone replacement therapies, including thyroid replacement therapy.
- hormonal support
- thyroid support
The primary functions of bVital Thyroid Support are to support the natural production of thyroid hormones by the thyroid gland, and to support how tissues throughout the body respond to thyroid hormones. This is accomplished by providing support for each of the seven steps involved in thyroid function.
The synergistic combination of specific seaweeds and herbs in bVital Thyroid Support support these Seven Important Actions associated with optimal thyroid health:
1) Provide bio-available iodine for thyrocytes.†
2) Promote iodine uptake by thyrocytes through interactions with sodium-iodide-symporter (NIS) proteins.†
3) Promote T3 & T4 production and secretion from thyrocytes†
4) Promote conversion of thyroxine (T4) to the more bioactive triiodothyronine (T3) by liver cell and other peripheral cells.†
5) Promote RXR/TR heterodimerization of thyroid receptors on target cells.†
6) Promote binding of thyroid hormone receptors to DNA by RXR/TR heterodimers†
7) Promote action T3 on target gene expression.†
By supporting thyroid functions, this synergistic formulation supports the health of tissues which respond to optimal thyroid health. This support can also help maintain ideal metabolic rate, maintain normal blood lipids and sugar levels, and support memory and mood.†
bVital Thyroid Support may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to support healthy thyroid production and function.
As a dietary supplement, adults may take 2 capsules each day with food for 1 to 2 weeks or as directed by your healthcare professional. The dose may then be increased to 4 capsules each day with food for 2 to 4 months or as directed by your healthcare professional.
