Thyroid Energy - 90 Vcaps (Code 3368)
 
Unhealthy glandular function can lead to a host of problems including infection, poor metabolism, mood imbalances and more. NOW Thyroid Energy has been carefully engineered by our team of Ph.D.’s and certified nutritionists to naturally support healthy thyroid and glandular activity.

Fueled by a full gram of L-Tyrosine (a direct precursor to the production of thyroid hormones), our blend of B Vitamins, trace minerals, zinc, selenium and herbal extracts that balance normal hormone functions make this one of the smartest thyroid support supplements available.


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
