Supporting Thyroid During Pregnancy

Thyroid hormone works overtime during pregnancy. It sets the pace for your baby's growth and development, as well as the pace for the formation of all the hormones required to sustain a healthy pregnancy. In a sense, pregnancy is a true test of your thyroid system.

It is important to understand your risks for pregnancy-related thyroid distress. The first symptoms you are likely to notice are poor mood, a heavy head, fatigue, constipation, and feeling too cold. Any or all of these symptoms may occur and must be corrected as soon as they are noticed.

Some women have a history of thyroid-related symptoms, others have none prior to pregnancy. It is common that women whose mothers have thyroid issues will experience them during pregnancy -- often for the first time. A poor dieting history and currently being overweight also sets the stage for thyroid-related pregnancy stress.

Iosol Iodine, as mentioned above, is the most basic support for thyroid function during pregnancy. We often add Thyroid Helper®. Of course, Daily Prenatal Multi Vitamin is also a thyroid support basic as it helps all your cells produce energy, which is what thyroid hormone is trying to get them to do.*

Thyroid Helper® is a unique thyroid support supplement that helps activate the natural production of thyroid hormone while protecting your liver and thyroid gland from the increased activity of thyroid hormone needed for pregnancy. When thyroid hormone runs faster during pregnancy, sparks fly (otherwise known as free radicals). You must have adequate nutrients to sustain accelerated thyroid hormone function. Otherwise things start grinding to a slower pace, especially your mood and energy. Thyroid Helper® may be used before and during pregnancy at 1-3 capsules per day. Take enough to support your mood and energy.*
