Pathway Thyroid Support

Pathway Thyroid Support is a comprehensive formula designed to support healthy thyroid and metabolic function.  It contains key ingredients that:

  • Provide the building blocks of thyroid hormones
  • Increase thyroid hormone receptor function and sensitivity
  • Support metabolic function and moderate the stress response
  • Improve thyroid hormone conversion and activation

So why is this important.  Well, the thyroid gland is one of the largest endocrine organs in the body and plays an important role in regulating the body’s metabolism. Diminished thyroid activity decreases metabolic rate and makes it difficult to assimilate food properly. In addition, it depresses the activity of other glands in the body and adversely affect other cells and tissues in the body.
What does this really mean to you?  Well, problems associated with thyroid imbalance include: weight gain, fatigue, feeling cold, depression, constipation, hair loss, and dry skin.  Hmm, sound familiar?
