The Science Behind Biote Iodine+
The thyroid gland takes the iodine we ingest and converts it into two hormones—thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). T4 and T3 regulate our body’s metabolism of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Every cell in our body depends on T4 and T3. Moreover, iodine may support healthy breast tissue by up-regulating proteins involved in estrogen metabolism.
Even if a patient is a healthy eater, they may benefit from Biote supplements. Some foods can cause a relative iodine deficiency by binding to iodine, which may make the bound iodine inaccessible for thyroid hormone production. These foods include cauliflower, cabbage, brussels sprouts, kale, soy, peanuts, pine nuts, turnips, and rutabaga, although cooking these foods tends to make them less apt to do this.*
Biote Iodine+ also contains other essential ingredients—selenium and zinc. Selenium and Zinc may be helpful with the formation of active thyroid hormone (T3).
What Can the Biote Iodine+ Do for You?
When this hormone therapy supplement is taken daily, Biote Iodine+ can provide a normal amount of iodine that may help to ensure a deficiency is not impairing hormone production.
