  About thyroid hormone

Thyroid hormone is secreted by a small endocrine gland in the neck ,called Thyroid .  93% of it is thyroxin (T4) which is inactive and 7%  is triiodothyronine (T3) the active hormone. T4 will be converted into T3 in the liver.

Thyroid hormone is very important for every cell and organ in the body .it is responsible for cellular metabolism and it affects all other hormones in the body. Low thyroid hormone depresses every function in every body cell. There will be slow digestion, lower immunity, insufficient healing and growth.

Dr. Ray Peat says; without the metabolic efficiency which is promoted by thyroid hormone, life couldn’t get much beyond the single-cell stage.

The sudden surge of polyunsaturated oils into the food chain post World War II has caused many changes in hormones. Unsaturated oils block thyroid hormone secretion, its movement in the circulatory system, and the response of tissues to the hormone.

Coconut oil improves thyroid function significantly.
