Did you know that when the thyroid is affected so are the adrenals? It makes sense to treat both at the same time.
Thyroid Support Plus with Withania
Now with Withania Helps Thyroid & Adrenal
Thyroid Support Plus now contains Withania to help the HPA axis (hypothalamus -pituitary - adrenals). When the thyroid struggles to function, the HPA axis places the adrenals under stress which can raise cortisol and adversely affect the production of thryoid hormones.1
Comprehensive Nutrients to Support:
- Thyroid Gland Function
- Healthy Energy Levels
- Healthy Metabolism
- Adrenal Function
Thyroid and adrenal support
What does it do?
- Improves thyroid function by providing much needed targeted nutrients
- Improves the ability of the body to handle stress better through lessening the pressure on both the thyroid and adrenal glands
- Increases energy levels
- Can decrease thyroid medication over time
- Can help overall metabolic rate through improving thyroid function
