Hypothyroidism affects at least 20 to 25% of American women and 10% of men. Another large group of Americans may have “subclinical” thyroid issues, whereby their thyroid stimulating hormone blood test (TSH) results are within normal range, yet they have many symptoms of low thyroid. These symptoms can include low metabolism, cold hands and feet, poor mood, along with fatigue.
Some thyroid specialists believe that many women live with subclinical low thyroid for up to a decade before their condition is confirmed by a TSH blood test.
Because thyroid hormones affect every cell in the body, a deficiency will result in numerous symptoms. Hypothyroidism causes the body’s metabolic rate to slow dramatically and, often, early symptoms are misdiagnosed as depression. A swollen and puffy face, weight gain, intolerance to cold, constipation, and fatigue are hallmark symptoms. Hair often becomes sparse, coarse, and dry, and there is a loss of eyebrow hair.
Our blend is designed to support your thyroid function, energy levels and mood through multiple avenues by providing the building blocks needed for thyroid hormone production, along with adaptogens that balance stress hormones (since stress can block T4 —> T3 conversion). The herbs and nutrients within this formula nourish both the thyroid and adrenals to combat fatigue and boost quality of life.
First and foremost, our formula contains the essential ‘building blocks’ (such as selenium) that are required for the proper production and conversion of thyroid hormone. Additionally, it contains adaptogenic herbs that protect the body from high levels of stress hormones which can interfere with thyroid function. The building blocks in section (a) are designed to give your body the raw material it needs to produce healthy hormones, and the adaptogens in section (b) are meant to strengthen the entire glandular system in order to protect the body from stress and burnout.
- Bladderwrack: Bladderwrack is one of the highest iodine containing sea vegetables known. The iodine in bladderwrack is present in the form of di-iodotyrosine (DIT) which is a normal precursor of the thryoid hormones T4 and T3. T4 is manufactured by the condensing of DIT and thyroid peroxidase enzyme in the follicular luminae of the thyroid gland. The naturally occurring source of iodine makes Bladderwrack a great choice in the support of a healthy functioning thyroid gland when more iodine is required for optimal function. Also of interest is the high amount of fucoidin found in Bladderwrack. Fucoidans and Fucans are sulfated polysaccharides found in most brown seaweeds. These substances have been researched for modulating a healthy inflammatory response, and have shown strong properties for supporting a healthy immune system and intestinal flora. It is also recognized as a source of other naturally occurring minerals such as iron, zinc, copper, magnesium, and potassium.
- L-Tyrosine: Low plasma levels have been associated with hypothyroidism. L-Tyrosine is also part of the biochemistry that produces the stress neurotransmitters of epinephrine and norepinephrine. When under stress, it is thought that the body is unable to produce enough tyrosine and phenylamine, which then feeds into the anxiety caused by the initial stress. Animal and human studies suggest that supplementing with L-Tyrosine could therefore reduce anxiety, as well as improve memory and performance when under psychological stress.
- Selenium: Selenium is essential for the conversion of thyroid hormones (T4 to T3), as deiodinase enzymes (which remove iodine atoms from T4 during conversion) are selenium-dependent. Several research studies have demonstrated the benefits of selenium supplementation in treating autoimmune thyroid conditions. One study found that selenium supplementation had a significant impact on inflammatory activity in thyroid-specific autoimmune disease, and reducing inflammation may limit damage to thyroid tissue.

B) Adaptogenic Herbs
- Rhodiola: Rhodiola rosea root supports the functioning of the glandular system and encourages a healthy response to physical, emotional and mental stress by supporting healthy cortisol levels.
- Ashwagandha: Studies have shown that this herb supports the conversion of T4 into more active T3. It is particularly helpful if low thyroid function is the result of chronic stress, as there is some evidence this herbal extract also balances the cortical levels. Ashwagandha rejuvenates and tonifies the entire system, especially the endocrine and immune systems.
- Stinging Nettle: A strengthening, mineral-rich herb that is excellent for the skin, hair, and kidneys. Nettle seeds help with the general stress response, they strengthen the adrenals, and they’re loaded with minerals and trace elements.
- Eleuthero Root: Supports physical and mental stamina in cases of mild fatigue and feelings of weakness.
1. Can I use this product if I don’t have a thyroid?
Although there’s no down side, there may not be a strong benefit either. When a patient no longer has a thyroid, pharmaceutical replacement is given for the missing hormones. While this blend may help with energy levels, stress and mood (thanks to the adaptogenic herbs), you wouldn’t gather the same thyroid/metabolism benefits if the gland is no longer present.
2. Can I use this product if I have Hashimotos (because it contains iodine)?
A: We always ask that you consult with your doctor or health practitioner when a pre-existing diagnosis is present. The current paradigm in Western Medicine says ‘no iodine for Hashimotos,’ however there are a number of studies that suggest just the reverse. It is a controversial topic and an individual decision that you should make with your practitioner. I suggest reading the article by Dr. Jeffrey Dach, MD titled “Iodine and Hashimoto’s” and the article Facts About Iodine and Autoimmune Thyroiditis by Guy E. Abraham, M.D.
Is it beneficial for anyone to take this even if no Thyroid issues have been tested or confirmed?
Thyro-pro saved me! I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in May with TSH levels at 6.36. After using the product for about two months I had my TSH checked again, it dropped to 3.74! My doctor was shocked. It felt amazing to have my energy levels back and know what I was putting into my body. I would highly recommend this. Thank you Olivia!
I got me a bottle of this and did all, now do u have to keep taking this every month….
I started taking thyro-pro at the beginning of June because my doctor wanted to put me on Synthroid. My thyroid level was at 6.9 which is considered a high. By mid-july after taking Thyro-Pro as directed my thyroid dropped to 3.3. I am absolutely thrilled with this product!
