Why Your Thyroid Function Is so Important

Suck-It-Up-Now-Gym-Motivation

Up to 74% of American’s have thyroid issues. Some of these issues are associated with not getting enough vitamins and minerals to optimize thyroid function. Many people who turn to weight training, cardio, or other exercise find themselves not losing additional weight and having other symptoms such as:

Fatigue
Increased sensitivity to cold
Constipation
Dry skin Unexplained weight gain
Puffy face
Hoarseness
Muscle weakness
Elevated blood cholesterol level
Muscle aches, tenderness and stiffness
Pain, stiffness or swelling in your joints
Heavier than normal or irregular menstrual periods
Thinning hair
Slowed heart rate
Depression
Impaired memory

I get questions from clients all the time wondering what they should do about optimizing their thyroid function. Here are my suggestions.

1. Talk to your doctor: Your doctor draw some blood and check your thyroid levels. If there is any medical concern about these levels, the doctor may refer you to an endocrinologist or get an ultrasound of the thyroid. Many people take prescriptions such as Synthroid.

2. Eat more table salt: Iodine is the most likely cause of thyroid issues in the US. Iodine is an essential mineral that helps regulate your thyroid. Although sodium has a bad reputation for good reason, table salt includes Iodine. Note: most sea salts do not contain Iodine.

3. Supplements: There are a few supplements out there that will help optimize thyroid function. My favorite is Thyro-Drive by 1st Phorm. This supplement has chromium, guggulsterones, amino acids, raspberry ketones, cayenne pepper extract, and more to help regulate your thyroid naturally. Right now you can buy Thyro-Drive and  1-DB Goddess or 1-DB Overdrive in a combo pack for 79.99 with free shipping. This saves you around $25.00. Click here to check this out!
