Some studies and experts show that 40% of US adults have thyroid problems and women are up to 7 times more likely than men to suffer from hypothyroidism. Thyroid function is very susceptible to environmental factors such as stress, pollution, heavy metals, diet… therefore it will need the right combination of thyroid supporting nutrients to function more optimally.
The thyroid is a vital gland and its hormones regulate your metabolism, energy level, ability to burn fat, heart rate, libido etc…When not optimized one may feel many of its side effects.
Symptoms such as
- Hair falling out
- Dry skin
