Did you know that the symptoms could include fatigue, loss of appetite, inability to tolerate cold, a slow heart rate, weight gain, painful premenstrual periods, a milky discharge from the breasts, fertility problems, muscle weakness, muscle cramps, dry and scaly skin, a yellow-orange coloration in the skin (particularly on the palms of the hands), yellow bumps on the eyelids, hair loss (including the eyebrows), recurrent infections, migraines hoarseness, respiratory infections constipation, depression, difficulty concentrating, slow speech, goiter, and drooping, swollen eyes?  

“The thyroid gland is the body’s internal thermostat, regulating the temperature by secreting two hormones that control how quickly the body burns calories and uses energy. Hypothyroidism is caused by an underproduction of thyroid hormone. […] The most common symptoms are fatigue and intolerance to cold. If you consistently feel cold while others around you are hot, you may be suffering from reduced thyroid function.”

Here are a few of my favorite products to help bring that thyroid back up and into balance!

Standard Process Prolamine Iodine for Thyroid

Prolomine Iodine

Prolamine Iodine or Prolamine Iodine Plus is for short-term use for patients who may need a high dose of iodine. It provides thyroid support.*  

  • Contains organic kelp — a whole food source of iodine

Prolamine iodine (zein) is the main source of iodine in this product. The iodine is prepared as a Lugol’s solution of 2:1, potassium iodide (KI): iodine (I2). This aqueous solution creates a unique triiodide form (KI3) which forms stable bonds with both starch and protein in organic cornmeal from the Standard Process farm.
