In a Nutshell
  • Vitamin A (or retinol) is a group of unsaturated nutritional organic compounds that supports vision, the immune system, and inflammatory responses.
  • Vitamin A ativates thyroid hormone receptors and regulates T and B cells to reduce the inflammatory response.
The Research

Metabolizes thyroid hormone

Vitamin A shows to regulate thyroid hormone metabolism and inhibit thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) secretion. A 4-month randomized, double-blind controlled trial of premenopausal women found that Vitamin A caused a significant reduction in serum TSH. The study concluded that vitamin A supplementation might reduce the risk of subclinical hypothyroidism in premenopausal women.

Supports the pituitary

Vitamin A deficiency can also impact thyroid health by playing a role in the pituitary gland, which sends signals (in the form of TSH) to the thyroid to regulate production. A deficiency in vitamin A may limit pituitary synthesis and secretion of TSH, increase the size of the thyroid gland, or reduce uptake of iodine by the thyroid gland.

Reduces autoimmune reactions

Vitamin A can also decrease the risk of Hashimoto’s Disease, the autoimmune condition that underlies most cases of hypothyroidism. The vitamin may decrease autoimmune reactions in the body.
