THE THYROID NEEDS MAGNESIUM. HERE'S WHY....
The thyroid cannot function without magnesium. Here is a list of very important functions of magnesium and how it relates to your thyroid gland health.
Magnesium is responsible for converting the inactive T4 thyroid hormone into the active form of T3. This is extremely important because the metabolism of your body cells are enhanced by T3, not inactive T4.
Magnesium deficiency is related to goiter, or an enlarged thyroid gland. Another important nutrient in preventing goiter is iodine, but magnesium is right there helping too.
Magnesium helps you to make more T4 in the thyroid gland. Without magnesium, many of the thyroid enzymes that make thyroid hormone simply could not function.
For supplementation for your thyroid and general health, there are two different categories of magnesium, depending on whether you have constipation or not.
If you have constipation, then Magnesium Citrate is best at a dose of 400 mg to 1000 mg to relieve constipation and start to increase magnesium stores.
If you do not have constipation, but many of the other symptoms, then take Magnesium Glycinate or Magnesium Taurate at a daily dose of 400 mg to 800 mg. These are two magnesium “amino acid chelates” that help you to increase magnesium stores and will not increase bowel motility for those that do not really need it.
The rest of your body benefits from magnesium too. In fact, there are over 300 different enzymatic reactions in your body and cells that require magnesium. When magnesium is deficient it leads to a host of problems:
Thyroid problems (low or high)
Tingling in the extremities
Anxiety and depression
High blood pressure
- And there are many more.....
Do those symptoms sound familiar to you? They may be extremely familiar. It may be that many of you read that list of magnesium deficiency related signs and symptoms and discover that you have always thought it was related to your existing or suspected low thyroid condition. That still may be true. But it is also very important to note that the symptoms could be from a magnesium deficiency directly and/or hypothyroidism (low thyroid) from the magnesium deficiency. Either way, magnesium can help you and your thyroid.
Magnesium (citrate) is a highly bioavailable magnesium chelate, which supports the metabolism and utilization of carbohydrates, amino acids and fats for energy.
- Highly bioavailable magnesium chelate*
- Supports metabolism of carbohydrates, amino acids and fats*
- Made with hypoallergenic, vegan ingredients
Magnesium activates the enzymes necessary for a number of physiological functions, including neuromuscular contractions, cardiac function, and the regulation of the acid-alkaline balance in the body. It is necessary for the metabolism of carbohydrates, amino acids and fats; also for energy production, and the utilization of calcium, phosphorus, sodium, and potassium. This vital mineral also helps utilize B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, and vitamin E.*
