The thyroid is responsible for hormones that affect mood, improve circulation, increase metabolism, retain calcium, affect cardiovascular health, improve tolerance to temperature fluctuations, minimize body fat, reduce the tendency for obesity, minimize menstrual disturbances, improve energy, reduce the dryness of skin and hair, and reduce premature hair loss. Yet thyroid problems are very common.
Unfortunately, medical interventions are often incomplete as blood tests often do not recognize certain forms of hypothyroidism.
Furthermore, even when found medically, most medical interventions are limited to the prescribing of synthetic T4 (levothyroxine), which tends to shut the thyroid down, and thus possibly increasing the tendency for osteoporosis, as well as sometimes increasing mood problems and some other symptoms associated with low thyroid function.
Many people simply take Vegetarian Thyro™ as a Food supplement to help them feel better.
