Nutraceuticals & Hashimoto’s

Hashimoto’s is a physiological web that needs to be untangled. The next piece of the web to untangle may be to understand some specific nutraceuticals that can come to our aide. 

Vitamin D 

Study after study show that deficiency in Vitamin D actually increases inflammation. Not only does vitamin D help stimulate T-regulation cell production, which helps calm immune response, but it also decreases inflammation. Vitamin D helps significantly to balance the immune response, which is imperative for thyroid issues & Hashimoto’s. 


Selenium is an essential micronutrient that is required for the synthesis of selenocysteine-containing selenoproteins, processing a wide range of health effects. The “selenostasis” maintenance seems to contribute to the prevention of immune mediated thyroid disorders. Selenium may improve the inflammatory activity for those with autoimmune issues. 


Magnesium is essential in only 600 metabolic pathways in your body. It is probably the most underutilized nutrient & typically what most people are deficient in. The phases of detoxification absolutely NEED magnesium. We always recommend taking magnesium, especially if you are dealing with an autoimmune disease. 


Glutathione is your #1 intracellular detoxification oxidant. It is oxidizing agents that we are exposed to in our environment that cause cellular inflammation. Glutathione is needed for the protection of cells that become damaged due to these oxidizing agents!
