THYROsmart can be used both by those with low levels of T3 and T4 above the threshold for hypothyroidism AND by those on thyroid medication. It supplies the iodide the body needs and an amino acid it can use to make T4, herbs that stimulate its production and conversion to T3, some minerals that people with hypothyroidism are often deficient in, plus Pantothenic Acid to support the adrenal glands and help deal with stress, to support optimal thyroid health and improve energy and metabolism.
The thyroid gland regulates our metabolism primarily with the hormones T3 (triiodothyronine) and its precursor T4 (thyroxine), but up to half of women don't produce enough of them. Symptoms of a deficiency (which many take medications for, if diagnosed with hypothyroidism) can include low body temperature, constipation, weight gain, fatigue, hair loss, eyebrow hair loss, depression, recurring infections, sensitivity to cold, dry skin, headaches, reduced libido, infertility, recurring miscarriages, menstrual problems and never-ending menopausal symptoms.
For those taking thyroid medication:
• Do not stop your thyroid medication. THYROsmart is to be used in conjunction with your thyroid medication.
• Works with thyroid medication (if you are still feeling the symptoms of hypothyroidism) to enhance the beneficial action of supplemental thyroid hormones.
• Caution for those with hyperthyroid: Do Not Take THYROsmart if you have hyperthyroid without the recommendation of your healthcare practitioner.
Hi, I'm Lorna Vanderhaeghe, women's natural health expert and author of "A Smart Woman's Guide to Hormones."
Over 23% of the population has low thyroid and is currently on thyroid medication. It is estimated another 30% of people are walking around with low thyroid that have yet to be diagnosed. Symptoms of low thyroid include hair loss, weight gain, low energy, constipation, no sex drive, depression, and feeling cold, to name a few.
Getting a proper diagnosis is part of the problem. Our doctors perform a thyroid stimulating hormone test, also called the TSH test, and the normal range is 0.5 to 5.5. In order to be diagnosed with low thyroid, your TSH would have to be above 5.5. The higher the number, the lower your thyroid, but research shows that a TSH above 2.0 is a problem, and by the time you've hit 5.5 and been told you have low thyroid, you've packed on 20 pounds and you feel awful.
But what do you do when your doctor won't give you thyroid medication even though you have most of the symptoms? You can take THYROsmart, a formula I developed to support optimal thyroid health and to bring that TSH back below 2.0 where it should be. THYROsmart helps enhance T4 thyroid hormone and aids the conversion between T4 and the more potent T3.
Keeping your thyroid TSH in the optimal range is important because your thyroid helps determine your heart rate, how quickly food is metabolized, your body temperature, cholesterol manufacture, and for women, your thyroid is involved in infertility, managing menstrual cycles, and women with low thyroid have severe, never-ending menopause symptoms.
THYROsmart is a safe, effective supplement for optimal thyroid health.
