Description

If you have hyperthyroidism (Graves’ disease, toxic multinodular goiter, etc.) then you might want to consider the thyroid calming bundle.

  • Can help support the thyroid in those with hyperthyroidism
  • The research shows that L-carnitine can potentially benefit some people with hyperthyroidism
  • Lemon balm has a calming effect and can inhibit TSH receptor binding
  • Lithium orotate also has antithyroid properties

The thyroid calming bundle includes the following:

SMT-Carnitine Supreme. There are certain natural agents that can help support the thyroid in those with hyperthyroidism, and the research shows that L-carnitine can potentially benefit some people with hyperthyroidism.  One study showed that L-carnitine inhibits both triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) entry into the cell nuclei (1). The authors of the study  showed that 2 and 4 grams per day of oral L-carnitine is capable of reversing hyperthyroid symptoms as well as preventing (or minimizing) the appearance of hyperthyroid symptoms.  Although the same study showed that in some cases it can even be useful in the most serious form of hyperthyroidism (thyroid storm), keep in mind that this isn’t the case with everyone, and there is a time and place for antithyroid medication.

Studies also show that L-carnitine supplementation improves body strength, sports endurance and exercise capacity, as well as delaying the onset of fatigue (2). Another study showed that it suppresses the loss of skeletal muscle mass (3).Acetyl-l-carnitine has been shown to support the mitochondria (4), the brain (5), and also has been shown to have antioxidant properties (6).

Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis).  This herb is commonly recommended for those with hyperthyroidism for a few different reasons.  First of all, lemon balm inhibits TSH receptor binding, which causes decreased production of T3 and T4 in the thyroid gland (7).  In addition, lemon balm has a calming effect, and may offer support for those suffering with anxiety and/or insomnia (8).

Lithium Orotate.  Lithium has been used for decades as a mood stabilizer in people with bipolar disorder. However, it also has other functions, and it can affect the production of thyroid hormone in multiple ways. First of all, lithium inhibits iodine uptake, and iodine is important for the formation of thyroid hormone. It also inhibits iodotyrosine coupling, alters thyroglobulin structure, and inhibits thyroid hormone secretion (9). Lithium also decreases peripheral deiodination of thyroxine (T4) by decreasing the activity of type I 5′ de-iodinase enzyme (10). In other words, it affects the conversion of T4 to T3.  While most of the research shows that impact of lithium carbonate on thyroid health, lithium orotate can also support thyroid health, and doesn’t require a prescription.
