  • Supports Healthy Thyroid Function
  • Supports Healthy Metabolism


NOW Thyroid Energy is a complete nutritional supplement for the support of a healthy thyroid gland. NOW has combined Iodine and Tyrosine, the two integral constituents necessary for the synthesis of thyroid secretions. The minerals Selenium, Zinc and Copper have been added as cofactors needed for normal thyroid function.

NOW Thyroid Energy contains the Ayurvedic herbal extracts from Guggul (Commiphora mukul) and Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) to complement its nutritional support components.

Thyroid hormones affect every cell in the body, and deficiencies will result in numerous symptoms. Hypothyroidism causes the body's metabolic rate to slow down dramatically and, early symptoms can be misdiagnosed as depression. Slowed heart rate, hoarse voice, slowed speech, swollen and puffy face, drooping eyelids, intolerance to cold, constipation, and weight gain are hallmark symptoms. Hair often becomes sparse, coarse, and dry, and there is a loss of eyebrow hair. The skin will become dry, scaly, thick, and bumpy, and may have raised, thickened areas on the shins.

L-tyrosine is an amino acid necessary for the manufacture of thyroid hormones and can be taken alone or as a component of a nutritional supplement at a dosage of 500 mg per day to enhance thyroid function. The thyroid gland needs iodine to make its hormones.

In fact, iodine's only role in the body is to make thyroid hormone. Too little can cause impaired thyroid function, while too much can actually interfere with the thyroid's ability to produce hormones. Ashwagandha is known to produce a significant increase in the level of the thyroid hormone T4.
