Thyroid Health Support 

Supplements that help support the thyroid gland provide nutrient support for everyday thyroid function, as well as the sustained release of energy throughout the body, metabolism support and weight management.  The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped gland, located in the base of the neck and releases hormones for metabolism, the way the body uses energy. Thyroid hormones help regulate many vital body functions, including metabolism, healthy growth and development, by releasing a steady amount of thyroid hormone into the bloodstream on a daily basis. 

Thyroid Support Nutrients 

  • Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), an important ayurvedic herb that acts as an adaptogen, for energy and stress support and supports the thyroid gland via the thyroid-adrenal axis. 
  • Coleus forskohlii supports healthy metabolism and thyroid function. 
  • Seaweed extract, which supports healthy weight management and is a natural source of iodine for thyroid support. 
  • L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that supports the production of thyroid hormones.

Tips to Support Thyroid Health
