The thyroid is one of the largest endocrine glands in the body. This butterfly-shaped gland is located in the lower part of the neck and its main function is to absorb iodine from the diet and combine it with the amino acid tyrosine to produce thyroid hormones. These hormones are used by every cell in the body to help regulate metabolism; maintain blood pressure; and as an important regulator of growth and development of the musculoskeletal, nervous, and reproductive systems. An underactive thyroid can be caused by exposure to radiation, iodine deficiency, environmental pollutants, surgical removal of part or all of the thyroid, autoimmune disease, certain medications, heavy metal toxicity and viruses. ThyroForce is a glandular supplement, meaning it contains freeze-dried thyroid tissue from New Zealand raised bovine sources. The practice of glandular therapy to support underactive organs has been utilized since the time of Hippocrates and is still widely practiced today in both Western and Eastern medicine. The principle behind glandular therapy is that the healthy gland extract stimulates, and rebuilds the sluggish thyroid.
