Do You Have Thyroid Issues?

Do You Have Thyroid Issues?

Thyroid issues are more common than diabetes and heart disease. Statistics show 1 in 20 Canadians have a thyroid issue. Women are 10 times more likely to have thyroid problems.

If you have any of the following issues you may have a low thyroid.

•Unexplained weight gain
•Constantly tired
•Always cold
•Hair loss
•Dry, brittle nails and hair, itchy skin
•Poor concentration, memory loss
•Unexplained anxiety
•Low libido
•Sleep issues

Taking care of your thyroid may be just as simple as adding natural iodine to your diet. Countries like Japan, where kelp and other seaweeds (sea vegetables) are a staple in their diets, have no issues with thyroid. Kelp is rich in iodine and helps with thyroid function, weight loss, blood vessels, and healthy brain tissue. The b vitamins in kelp help with stress and heart health and the naturally occurring k vitamin helps with healthy blood clotting.

Iodine is found mostly in kelp and other sea vegetables, whole grains, and seafood. Other than food, kelp can be taken as a supplement.

Another amazing and very important gift from mother-nature!
