Located in the neck, just beneath the Adam’s apple, sits a butterﬂy-shaped organ called the thyroid gland. The hormones produced by the thyroid affect nearly every tissue in the body and orchestrate the body’s overall metabolism. Thyroid hormones activate over 100 enzymes in the body and have an impact on energy production and use, protein synthesis, carbohydrate, protein, and fat metabolism, and growth of long bones. Maintaining normal thyroid function helps maintain a robust energy level, a healthy immune system, a desirable body weight, normal gastrointestinal motility, healthy hair and skin, a positive mood and outlook, and normal body temperature. The thyroid gland’s activity truly affects us from head to toe.

B vitamins from a whole food cultured media blend are present to support energy production, while vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene provide support for antioxidant activity and tissue protection. Chelated minerals, choline, betaine hydrochloride (HCI), and glutamic acid provide further support for metabolic functions. Glandular support comes from an Argentinian bovine source and are predigested to ensure safety and purity.*
