Q:

I feel my thyroid is sluggish. How can I improve this naturally?



Byron: The healthy function of your entire thyroid system is a top-level health priority. On top of being a significant issue itself, sluggish thyroid is shown to make any other health problem more challenging. A lack of proper nutrition for your thyroid system is a huge metabolic problem. Inadequate nutrition causes faulty functioning in the thyroid and can easily be improved upon with good clinical nutrition such as Thyroid Helper, Iosol Iodine, and Daily Energy Multiple Vitamin.

Thyroid Helper can be used in conjunction with medications and helps support the conversion of non-active T4 to the active T3 hormone, along with helping transport the T3 into cells to turn on metabolism. So many toxins in our environment prevent the thyroid from working well and along with added stress it takes a significant toll on the function of thyroid hormone.

Iodine is vital for the formation of thyroid hormone. Scientific evidence clearly shows that a lack of iodine can cause changes to the thyroid gland directly leading to poor function of metabolism and immunity. We use Iosol Iodine because unlike potassium iodide which can clog the thyroid gland due to its poor solubility, Iosol readily washes away if it is not needed.

Daily Energy Multiple Vitamin contains Vitamin B12 and folic acid which are especially important for the enzymes that make thyroid hormone. This product is designed to enhance cellular uptake of vital nutrients to carry out the instructions of thyroid hormone within cells so that energy is actually made. It is free of the cheap cyanide-producing form of B12 known as cyanocobalamin. Cyanide metabolites are very hard on the thyroid -- only cheap vitamin companies put this low grade B12 in their products. A lack of B12 is commonly found in those struggling with thyroid function (along with poor mood).*
