What kind of vitamins help the endocrine system work?

I have a lousy thyroid, what kind of vitamin's, etc, can I take to feel better, what helps the endocrine system?

Erm... all of them?? I can't think of a vitamin that isn't related to the endocrine system. But since I'm not a medic, that's not really an expert opinion! I know that the B-vitamins help perk you up and make you more alert, particularly B12 I think, but too much of one causes a relative imbalance in the others so in terms of supplements, a vitamin B-compelx tablet would be the best bet.  (+ info)

What needs does the Endocrine System have?

What needs have to be met for the endocrine system to function correctly or be at best performance? And what are the rewards it gives the body when those needs are met? By rewards, I mean does the endocrine system give off anything extra for benefit in the body or do anything extra at all? Thanks to all who answer.

The endocrine system is special in a way that it is the only system that produce chemical substances called hormones. And these hormones are responsible for regulating the homeostasis (constant internal environment) of the body. Hormones are produced by the cells in the extracellular fluid (outside of the cells). Therefore, having healthy cells means having a healthy endocrine system.

Cells depend upon a continuous supply of energy and nutrients (carbohydrates, water, etc.). Achieving a healthy lifestyle would nourish these cells and stimulate their secretion of hormones. You can achieve this by intake of complete nutrients through a well-balanced meal. Hormones influence the functions and activities of other organs and systems as well. The reward would probably a healthy regulation of plenty of the body's systems. :D  (+ info)
