Frustrated by the lack of an available selenium-vitamin D supplement for thyroid eye patients, Huw and Saul have set up a small company to produce Thyro Eye Caps – a one-of-a-kind formula that combine science with nature in order to provide a complete supplement specifically for optimal vision and thyroid function.

By fighting free radicals, Selenium is thought to play an important role in all functions of the eye. Free radicals can cause cataract, and therefore healthy amounts of Selenium intake can protect the lens of the eye and prevent or delay cataract formation.

The thyroid gland has the highest concentration of Selenium of any organ in the human body. It plays a very important role in the healthy functioning of the thyroid gland, which in turn regulates many body activities such as digestion and food absorption, body temperature control and even mood.

Therefore, a healthy selenium intake is vital for maintaining thyroid and overall bodily health. Low Selenium levels have been associated with conditions like hypo and hyperthyroidism (Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and Graves disease).

Vitamin D has been linked to eye health in many ways and is thought to support the eye in several different conditions. Specifically, its role in inflammation may help support the eyes where thyroid problems also exist.

Research has suggested that vitamin D may help support the thyroid gland when in an under-active state (hypothyroidism). Low levels of vitamin D have also been associated with an overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism).

Thyro Eye Caps are available from February 2023. More information available here.
