Thyro-Mend, provided by Douglas Laboratories, is a synergistic combination of iodine containing seaweeds, as well as 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. The synergistic combination of seaweeds and herbs support many important functions associated with optimal thyroid health including; provides bio-available iodine for thyrocytes; iodine uptake by thyrocytes through interactions with sodium-iodide-symporter (NIS) proteins; T3 & T4 production and secretion from thyrocytes; conversion of thyroxine (T4) to the more bioactive triiodothyronine (T3) by liver cells; RXR/TR heterodimerization of thyroid receptors on target cells; binding of thyroid hormone receptors to DNA by RXR/TR heterodimers; and the affect of T3 on target gene expression. By supporting thyroid functions, this synergistic formulation also supports the health of tissues which respond to optimal thyroid health. This support can help maintain normal blood lipids and sugar levels and support memory and mood.
