Patients with thyroid disease should take supplements containing molecules with anti-oxidant properties, such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and coenzyme Q10. (Vitamin C and B-complex vitamins are very important.) Induction of B1 is supposed to be the best for helping thyroid to function properly in views of some doctors.
