Hypothyroidism and weight gain are best friends. Prevent or stop them both using one single natural drink! Check out the ingredients!
Your thyroid gland is essential for your health, as it has important functions under control. Your breathing, menstrual functions, body temperature, hormone and iodine production and balance are all related to the thyroid gland.
When your thyroid gland is not producing enough or is overproducing hormones, you are facing a thyroid gland disorder. The two main and most common types are: hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.
On one hand, you have hyperthyroidism (too much hormone production) which can be controlled only with medications and foods low in iodine.
On the other hand, you have hypothyroidism that can be controlled only by the choice of food. Foods rich in iodine can help you return the hormonal balance in your body. Of course, hypothyroidism can be controlled with hormone pills as well.
Either way, these two types of thyroid disorders manifest the similar symptoms: enlarged neck, swollen neck, sore throat, mood shifts, difficulty breathing, appetite loss, change in food taste etc.
