the thyroid gland.
Studies show that it enhances thyroid function and produces a
significant increase in T4 thyroid
hormone. Guggal extract and Ashwagandha should be used together to
support thyroid health.

with these as well as vitamins A, B2, B3, B6, C and E will ensure
optimal health of your thyroid
gland. MULTISMART includes the supporting nutrients and combined with THYROSMART

(Potassium Iodide) 50 mcg
Iodine is essential for the manufacture of thyroid hormones.
The thyroid gland is located in the front of the neck below the voice
box. The thyroid secretes two
hormones that are essential for regulating metabolism: triiodothytonine
(T3) and thyroxine (T4).
A deficiency in these hormones results in hypothyroidism, a common
affliction that is estimated to
affect almost 2 in 10 women in North America. Symptoms include: low body
gain, fatigue, depression, recurrent infections, sensitivity to cold,
dry skin, headaches, reduced
libido and menstrual problems.
Severe hypothyroidism requires a prescription from your health care
practitioner for supplemental
thyroid hormone. Low thyroid function that is mild or sub-clinical may
respond to nutritional and
herbal supplementation. Even if you are on a thyroid medication,
nutritional support in the form
may alleviate some of the
symptoms you may still be experiencing.

TAKING YOUR BASAL BODY TEMPERATURE
Menstruating women must perform the test on the second, third, and
fourth days of menstruation. Men and postmenopausal women can perform
the test at any time.
- Plan to take the
test first thing in the morning after you wake up, because it's
important to measure temperature after you have had adequate rest.
- Before going to sleep, if you are not using a digital thermometer
shake down a regular thermometer to below the 95-degree mark and place
it by your bed.
- Immediately upon waking, place the thermometer in your armpit (if
using a regular thermometer keep it there for a full 10). Hold your
elbow close to your side to keep the thermometer in place.
- Read and record the temperature and date.
- Repeat the test for least three mornings (preferably at the same
time of day).
- A reading between 97.6 and 98.2 degrees F is normal. Readings below
97.6 may indicate hypothyroidism.
If you have the following symptoms low thyroid may be your problem:
- Thinning hair
- Dry skin
- Weight gain or difficulty losing weight
- Sensitivity to cold
- Menstrual problems
- Fatigue or lethargy
Hypothyroid or low thyroid hormone is very common in Canada, affecting
approximately 20-25 percent of the female population and about 10
percent of males. An additional 20 percent may also have subclinical or
mild hypothyroidism whereby their TSH is within normal range. The
thyroid secretes two hormones T3 and T4 that are crucial for controlling
our metabolism. Because they affect every cell in the body, a
deficiency will result in many symptoms including those mentioned above.
Severe hypothyroidism, confirmed by a thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH)
test, requires the use of thyroid medication. But if you have mild or
subclinical low thyroid, where your TSH is greater than 2.0 IU/ml but
less than the 5.5 IU/ml level indicative of hypothyroidism, the
nutrients found in THYROSMART may help. Or, if you have been on thyroid
medication for a while and you still have symptoms you may not be
converting your thyroid hormones very well. THYROSMART may also
help correct this.
Ashwagandha and guggal (Comiphora mukul
) are two herbs that
work together to help improve thyroid activity. Ashwagandha increases
the level of T4 thyroid hormone while guggal (Comiphora mukul
enhances the conversion of T4 to the more potent T3 form directly on the
thyroid gland. Ninety-five percent of all cases of low thyroid are due
to impaired conversion of T4 into T3 in the tissues of the thyroid
gland. THYROSMART also contains other important nutrients known to
improve thyroid health.
Vitamin D is essential for the manufacture of thyroid hormone. In Canada
we tend to see higher rates of low thyroid due to our low exposure to
sunlight. We also need tyrosine, found in protein, to make thyroid
hormones. Start your day with an egg, a protein shake or a chicken
breast. Now that we are eliminating salt from our diet we often do not
get enough iodine to support proper thyroid health.
The thyroid gland plays a crucial role in our overall health. If it is
not operating at peak performance you won't be able to lose weight or
you may have drastic increases in your weight over a short period of
time; your hair may thin including your eyebrows; your skin will wrinkle
excessively and be dry; and you may experience menstrual problems or
severe menopause symptoms. Combine THYROSMART along with your
multivitamins (with minerals) and essential fatty acids for optimal
