Is Your Thyroid Out Of Balance

The thyroid gland plays a crucial role in the body's metabolism and energy regulation. It produces hormones that affect nearly every cell and organ system in the body.

When the thyroid is underactive (hypothyroidism) it can affect almost every aspect of health, causing exhaustion, nervous tremors, weight gain, muscle and joint aches, depression and memory difficulties. Conversely, an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) may cause increased heart rate, anxiety, weight loss, and other symptoms.


Can seaweeds help?

Seaweeds like kelp and bladderwrack have been gaining popularity in the last few years as we learn more about their benefits for our health. They are a natural source of iodine, a mineral our bodies need to make thyroid hormones. Low iodine levels are one of the most common causes of hypothyroidism.

Iodine is an essential mineral necessary for the production of thyroid hormones. Seaweeds like kelp and bladderwrack are natural sources of iodine, which may help prevent or alleviate hypothyroidism caused by iodine deficiency.

Besides iodine, kelp and bladderwrack contain a type of fibre called alginate, which can help reduce fat absorption, potentially mitigating weight gain associated with hypothyroidism.

If you don’t fancy using the seaweed in your diet, you could try Nutra Thyroid tea which has been blended to regulate thyroid activity, promote optimal gland function and hormone regulation


So what’s in Nutra Tea Thyroid?

This tea is a blend of herbs and seaweeds designed to support thyroid function, enhance energy, and manage stress.

Ingredients include:

Kelp: A significant source of natural iodine.

Bladderwrack: Known for boosting energy and metabolism.

Ashwagandha: An adaptogen herb that helps manage stress and supports adrenal gland function.

Ginseng: Known for its energy-boosting properties.

Lemon Balm: A calming herb that also supports hormone balance.

As mentioned above both kelp and bladderwrack also contain a type of fibre called alginate. This encourages our bodies to absorb less fat from our food, which might help to offset the weight gain caused by low thyroid activity.
