WHAT IS THYROID SUPPORT?
Thyroid Support is a maximum strenght formula with magnesium, selenium, schisandra, ashwagandha root, kelp, zinc and much more.
The thyroid gland manufactures hormones that regulate your body's metabolism. Several different disorders can arise when your thyroid produces too much hormone (hyperthyroidism) or not enough (hypothyroidism).
Your thyroid produces thyroid hormone, which controls many activities in your body, including how fast you burn calories and how fast your heart beats. Diseases of the thyroid cause it to make either too much or too little of the hormone. Depending on how much or how little hormone your thyroid makes, you may often feel restless or tired, or you may lose or gain weight. Women are more likely than men to have thyroid diseases, especially right after pregnancy and after menopause.
Thyroid Support includes: Iodine (from kelp) contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism. Selenium contributes to the normal thyroid function. Zinc contributes to normal acid-base metabolism. Copper contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism. Magnesium contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism. Vitamin B12 contributes to normal energy yielding metabolism, normal homocysteine metabolism, normal psychological function, normal red blood cell formation, normal function of the immune system, reduction of tiredness and fatique.

Schisandra chinensis (five flavor fruit) is a fruit-bearing vine. It’s purple-red berries are described as having five tastes: sweet, salty, bitter, pungent, and sour.

Many people consider cayenne peppers to be the king of medicinal herbs. In fact, these peppers have been used for thousands of years to help treat many health problems. Not only do they have medicinal properties, but cayenne peppers are also great for cooking and contain several beneficial nutrients. Cayenne peppers are a type of chili pepper. They belong to the nightshade family of flowering plants and are closely related to bell peppers and jalapeños. They were originally grown in Central and South America, but brought to Europe in the 15th century by Christopher Columbus. Cayenne peppers are a popular spice used in many different regional styles of cooking, and they have been used medicinally for thousands of years. These peppers boast an impressive nutrition profile, which includes a variety of antioxidants that are beneficial for your health.
Kelp is a type of large, brown seaweed that grows in shallow, nutrient-rich saltwater near coastal fronts around the world. Because it absorbs the nutrients from its surrounding marine environment, kelp is rich in:
Seaweed, such as kelp, is one of the best natural food sources of iodine, an essential component in thyroidhormone production.
Bladderwrack is one of the highest iodine containing sea vegetables known. The iodine in bladderwrack is present in the form of di-iodotyrosine (DIT) which is a normal precursor of the Thyroid Hormones T4 (Thyroxine) and T3 (tri-iodothyronine). The naturally occurring source of iodine makes Bladderwrack a great choice in the support of a healthy functioning thyroid gland when more iodine is required for optimal function. Also of interest is the high amount of fucoidin found in Bladderwrack. Fucoidans and Fucans are sulfated polysaccharides found in most brown seaweeds. These substances have been researched for modulating a healthy inflammatory response, and have shown strong properties for supporting a healthy immune system and intestinal flora. It is also recognized as a source of other naturally occurring minerals such as iron, zinc, magnesium, and potassium.
Daily dosage: 2 capsules daily preferably with meals.

I started taking Thyroid Support when I had elevated antibodies previously too low metabolism from my post-pregnancy period. After just 1,5 months of Thyroid Support it dropped to 233. I would definitely recommend this product to others with metabolic challenges.

Thyroid support is an All-in-one product because in this product you get everything your thyroid needs to function optimally. Not many people know that it is estimated that up to 80% of us suffer from iodine deficiency - and this negatively affects the metabolism and increases the risk of hormonal problems. But it is not as simple as just taking iodine. To absorb iodine in the cells, one needs both the presence of selenium and tyrosine along with adaptogenic (hormone-balancing) herbs such as ashwagandha. These things are in Thyroid support so it makes it easy.
