A collection of vitamins + minerals focused on supporting the structure and fuction of the endocrine system while promoting hormone health:
Stress + Other Responses
Genetics and lifestyle can create an overload of hormones that require more attention to stay balanced.
Magnesium/Vitamin C + Adrenals
The adrenal glands produce cortisol, the primary stress hormone. Vitamin C and magnesium are crucial for proper adrenal function and cortisol synthesis. A deficiency in these nutrients can impair the stress response and lead to fatigue, mood swings, and increased susceptibility to stress-related conditions.
Insulin + Chromium/Zinc
Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that regulates blood sugar levels. Chromium and zinc are essential minerals that support insulin function. A deficiency in these minerals can contribute to insulin resistance, impaired glucose tolerance, and an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Growth + Development
Hormones are the architects of our development, influencing our physical growth, sexual maturation, and how we age.
Growth Hormones + Zinc
Zinc plays a role in the production and release of growth hormone, which is essential for growth, tissue repair, and overall body composition. A deficiency in zinc can lead to growth retardation in children and impaired tissue repair in adults.
Sex Hormones + B-Vitamins
Vitamin B6 is involved in hormone metabolism, including the synthesis and breakdown of sex hormones like estrogen and testosterone. A deficiency in vitamin B6 can lead to imbalances in sex hormone levels, potentially causing irregular menstrual cycles, fertility issues, and mood disturbances.
The thyroid and parathyroid glands are small but mighty endocrine glands hold the key to numerous vital bodily functions.
Thyroid + Iodine
Iodine is a critical component of thyroid hormones (T3 and T4), which are essential for regulating metabolism, energy production, and overall growth and development. A deficiency in iodine can lead to hypothyroidism, where the thyroid gland doesn't produce enough hormones. This condition can result in symptoms like fatigue, weight gain, cold intolerance, and impaired cognitive function.
Parathyroid + Vitamin D
Vitamin D is vital for calcium regulation, and it helps in the proper functioning of parathyroid hormone (PTH). A deficiency in vitamin D can lead to decreased calcium absorption, causing the parathyroid glands to overproduce PTH. This imbalance can result in problems like bone density loss and an increased risk of fractures.
