HashiComplex has been designed to provide comprehensive thyroid, immune system and antioxidant support through a variety of important nutrients.
Features herbal ingredients hemidesmus and black cumin.
Selenium, vitamin A and myo-inositol support healthy thyroid gland function.
Selenium supports production and conversion of thyroxine (T4) to triiodothyronine (T3).
Vitamin A assists thyroid hormone production.
Zinc, vitamins A and D are included for their ability to support healthy immune system function.
Zinc and selenium provide antioxidant support to reduce free radicals formed in the body and decrease the damage they cause to body cells.
Zinc contributes to normal fertility and reproduction.
Selenium Selenium provides dual support for the thyroid gland, being involved in thyroxine (T4) to triiodothyronine (T3) conversion and iodine recycling, as well as playing an important role in antioxidant defence mechanisms that help to protect the thyroid gland from free radical damage.
Selenium is a cofactor for enzymes including glutathione peroxidase and hydroxyperoxidases, which are important in the scavenging of free radicals, such as reactive oxygen species (ROS). These are produced by the follicles used in the biosynthesis of thyroid hormones.
Myo-inositol Myo-inositol regulates the activities of hormones such as insulin, follicle stimulating hormone(FSH) and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) by acting as a secondary messenger. Together with selenium, myo-inositol helps to ensure euthyroidism in patients with autoimmune thyroiditis.
Vitamins A and D Vitamin A is involved in the formation of thyroid hormone receptors and transcription of thyroid hormones. It facilitates the binding of thyroid hormones and their activation. Vitamin A is also involved in the healthy uptake of iodine by the thyroid, the modulation of thyroid hormone metabolism, the peripheral metabolism of the thyroid hormones and plays a role in the production of TSH by the pituitary. Along with vitamin A and zinc, vitamin D supplies nutritional support for a normal healthy immune system.
Zinc Zinc is required for the conversion of T4 to T3. It is also considered a cofactor for the deiodinase enzyme.
Similarly to selenium, zinc is an antioxidant that helps to prevent free radical damage. It contributes to the structure of superoxide dismutase, which helps to maintain tissue concentrations of metallothionein and stabilises cell membranes.
Hemidesmus indicus (hemidesmus) Hemidesmus, a traditional Ayuverdic herb commonly known as Indian sarsaparilla, is used as a cooling tonic and to promote health and vitality. It is a common weed found all over India that has been extensively investigated for its pharmacological effects.
