Info: 90 Veg. Capsules
Sub-optimal thyroid function may be at the root of a number of problems including low energy levels, an increased susceptibility to autoimmune abnormalities, elevated cholesterol levels, and several matters related to the female reproductive system (menstrual abnormalities, amenorrhea, galactorrhea, precocious or delayed sexual development, sterility or miscarriages, and postpartum depression). NOW Thyroid Energy is a complete nutritional supplement for the support of normal thyroid function. It combines Iodine and Tyrosine, the two integral constituents of the hormones the thyroid produces, with the minerals selenium, zinc and copper and the Ayurvedic herb Ashwagandha to improve the thyroid gland's metabolism, along with Guggul extract (another Ayurvedic herb), to help lower cholesterol, plus a combination of B-vitamins to improve blood vessel cell wall function and decrease homocysteine.
