Support the parathyroid and regulate your calcium/phosphorus metabolism. Parathyroid-4 provides a supplementation of the nutrients and hormones that the parathyroid needs to function properly.
Parathyroid-4 contains parathyroid glandular tissue. Glandular supplementation provides supplementation like no other combinations that help in tonifying specific organ tissues by providing the specific glandular nutrient combinations and the necessary enzymes for proper cellular health found only in glandular's.
Abnormalities of parathyroid function effect many body functions, especially the endocrine mechanism that balances the tyro-adrenal-pituitary mechanism.
The 4 parathyroid glands are located next to the thyroid gland in the lower front part of the neck. Although they are close to the thyroid gland, the parathyroid glands function independently from the thyroid. The parathyroid glands make a substance called parathyroid hormone (PTH), which regulates the level of calcium in the blood. By helping the body absorb calcium from food, PTH maintains a healthful level of calcium for strong bone function. Also, PTH helps to control the amount of calcium that is released from bones and then excreted in urine.
Laboratory signs of parathyroid inefficiency are: low serum calcium, elevated phosphate, low urinary calcium in absence of renal failure, reduced serum magnesium, reduced hydroxyproline levels, low circulatory parathyroid hormone.
Hypoparathyroidism can be brought on by an autoimmune reaction. The manifestations of hypoparathyroidism include muscular weakness, twitching, tetany and irritability, nervousness, dysmenorrhea, stunted growth, deformation of teeth, and retardation.
When the parathyroid glands make too much PTH, a condition called primary hyperparathyroidism exists, causing abnormally high levels of calcium in the blood. Hyperparathyroidism can also occur as a result of other medical problems, such as kidney disease, and is then called secondary hyperparathyroidism.
Overactivty, or "Hyperparathyroidism", can result in decalcification of the bones with associated pain and deformities, including cystic lesions as well as spontaneous fractures. Laboratory findings of hyperparathyroidism are: high serum calcium, increased urine phosphate, decreased tubular reabsorption of phosphate and low urinary calcium.
As a dietary supplement, take one to three tablets per day following meals or as directed by your health care professional.
