The 9 Best Supplements for Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis of 2017

This video includes the best and strongest supplements for treating Hashimoto’s thyroiditis in 2017. This is the updated and revised 2016 version.

This list represents changes based on new patient outcomes and studies. As time changes so too do my recommendations.

Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease that includes not only hypothyroidism but a component of autoimmunity.

Treatment must be focused on improving thyroid function as well as optimizing immune regulation and function.

The list of supplements is targeted at systems to directly (or indirectly) increase thyroid function, reduce the symptoms of hashimoto’s and hypothyroidism or to boost immune function.

The top 9 Hashimoto’s supplements:

1. Zinc
– Helps to improve T4 to T3 conversion, decrease inflammation and improve immune function.

2. Selenium
– Improves T4 to T3 conversion, reduces inflammation and autoimmunity

3. Adrenal support
– Helps improve energy levels, balance cortisol levels and overall improve quality of life

4. Probiotics and prebiotics
– Helps to indirectly improve thyroid function and conversion, improve digestion and increase nutrient absorption

5. Vitamin D3 + K2
– Helps improve immune function and calcium regulation

6. Vitamin B12
– Helps improve energy levels, hair growth, reduces symptoms of depression and may improve quality of sleep

7. Supplements for sleep
– Helps reduce inflammation, improves thyroid function (lack of sleep leads to higher TSH level) and improves energy levels

8. Supplements for GI health
– Target supplements to GI conditions to help improve overall thyroid function and conversion and to reduce inflammatory levels

9. Iodine
– May improve thyroid hormone production & function
