Nutritional support for conditions where thyroid functions may not be optimal.
Are you suffering from any of these symptoms?

You may be suffering from Sub-clinical Hypothyroidism.
Speak to your Health Care Professional to get your Thyroid tested.
Supplementing with Mythyrox (1 tablet daily) might be the solution.
The thyroid gland, shaped like a butterfly, is a vital hormone gland that produces thyroid hormones (T3 and T4) into the bloodstream as required by your body. For example – You are feeling cold and therefore require energy to heat up. Your body tells the brain that you require energy to heat up and immediately the brain releases Thyroid Stimulation Hormone (TSH) to tell your thyroid gland to produce the necessary thyroid hormones responsible to produce energy to heat up your body.
TSH moves to your thyroid gland but unfortunately cannot tell your thyroid gland directly what to do. TSH must use a messenger to convey the message into your thyroid gland to produce the thyroid hormones. If the messenger system is normal and functional, your thyroid gland will produce and release the thyroid hormones into the bloodstream as required. Your body produces the necessary energy and you will feel warm.
Sometimes, however, the messenger system is down or not fully functional and then the message sent by TSH to your thyroid gland is not conveyed or not fully conveyed into your thyroid gland. Your thyroid gland, therefore, cannot produce, or cannot produce enough, thyroid hormones to provide the necessary heat and you will still feel cold. Because you are still cold and require energy to warm up, your body will keep on telling the brain that you are cold and the brain will continue to produce TSH, even above normal TSH levels.
Sometimes your thyroid gland cannot function normally because of the high oxidant load in your thyroid gland. Due to the high load of oxidants, your immune system may produce antibodies in your thyroid gland that unfortunately attacks your thyroid gland and reduce the ability of your thyroid gland to function properly.
In order to normalize the functions of the thyroid gland, it is critical to rectify the messenger system and reduce the oxidant load in your thyroid to ensure that no antibodies are formed in the thyroid gland.
Myo-Inositol supplementation may improve secondary messenger pathways required by Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) to convey messages across cell membranes. Selenium supplementation may result in an improvement of thyroid function by possibly decreasing unwanted antibodies that attack the thyroid.
The combination of Myo-Inositol and Selenium may restore optimal thyroid functions as well as improve well-being.
Mythyrox contains Myo-Inositol (600mg) and Selenium (60μg) in each tablet and thus may offer nutritional support for conditions where thyroid functions may not be optimal. Mythyrox dosage is is one tablet daily.
