Thyroid Support Supplement

Thyroid Support by LES Labs is a supplement to help promote thyroid health. The bottle contains a 2-month supply and should be used for hypothyroidism. Right off the bat I will tell you that it doesn't contain any ingredients I am suspicious of. And it does contain the ACTIVE form of B-12, methylcobalamin, instead of the synthetic, cyanocobalamin. Yay! (If you have any supplements that have cyanocobalamin as the form of B-12, you should throw those away).

Here are the main ingredients in this formula:

Iodine - Iodine is an essential mineral and required for thyroid function. Iodine is needed for healthy metabolism.
Selenium - Selenium may play an important role in the functioning of the thyroid gland and supports thyroid hormone synthesis.
L-Tyrosine - L-Tyrosine is an amino acid acid that supports the production of thyroid hormones. Ashwagandha - Ashwagandha is an adaptogen that helps the body adapt to stress and helps support physiological processes within the body.

So many millions of people - mostly women - are misdiagnosed or under diagnosed when in fact they really DO have thyroid issues.

Here is a graphic that shows you what tests you need MINIMUM to get a full complete profile of your thyroid health. The problem is that most doctors test only by the TSH.  I was "under diagnosed" for over 10 years before a doctor did all of the tests for me -- mainly the important one was the reverse T3.

T4 is the inactive thyroid hormone. And when you don't produce enough, your body increases its TSH (from the pituitary gland) to signal the thyroid to produce more T4. Then, your body converts T4 into T3, which is the active form of thyroid hormone, and the one your body uses for its thyroid functions.

However, many things can happen. What if you have enough T4, but instead of converting to free T3 (a sub category of T3 and the actual hormone used), it converts it to REVERSE T3? Your TSH would still be in the normal range -- after all, you are making enough T4.

This becomes a conversion issue. And it is overlooked by so many doctors, yet still produces the same results -- hypothyroidism.
