Adrenal Powder from Bovine
All the glands in the endocrine system work together, just as all the parts of an engine must work together for the engine to operate normally. This is particularly true with the pituitary-thyroid-adrenal gland combination. An article by Michael Schachter, M.D. F.A.C.A.M., indicates that the health of the adrenal gland should be addressed first, or simultaneously, to the thyroid. Our Adrenal Powder is prepared in accordance with strict manufacturing practices.
Ginger has been used since ancient times to treat occasional nausea and aid digestion. The University of Maryland Medical Center published an informative article about Ginger. In it, they say that in addition to being a digestive aid, Ginger also may be useful for soothing joints and muscles.
Cholesterol levels are associated with healthy thyroid function. Ginger may help to support and maintain cholesterol levels. Although definitive studies are still being conducted, there is mounting evidence that Ginger may help lower cholesterol and promote blood health.
People who are taking blood-thinning medication or are taking certain cancer treatments should consult with their doctor before taking Ginger.
Guglipid is an extract from the Guggal tree, which grows in India. Guglipid has been used in Ayurvedic medicine, practiced in India, for nearly 3,000 years to support overall health, weight management and normal lipid levels.
Researchers at the UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, Texas, and Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, report that Guglipid blocks the receptors (Famesoid X Receptor) involved with conversion of cholesterol to bile acids, thereby regulating cholesterol levels in the body.
Ayush Herbs, Inc., in Bellevue, Washington, described the results of clinical studies in India. “It is believed that the lipid regulating effects of Guggal result from it’s thyroid regulating action, and it’s combined effects of inhibiting the biosynthesis of cholesterol and promoting rapid excretion of cholesterol. Serum lipid levels are known to be reduced by increased levels of circulating thyroid hormones. Z-guggalsterone, a ketosteroid and a component of guggal, is such an agent. The plant is especially useful where T3 (Triiodothyronine) values of the thyroid are low. Guggal’s thyroid stimulating property also explains the traditional use of the plant to support thyroid health. Ayurvedic medicine for centuries has prescribed Guggal because of its health benefits which today’s technologically equipped scientists are only just discovering!”
Nori is one of the many varieties of seaweed, or sea vegetables, commonly eaten throughout the world. All sea vegetables are high in mineral content, especially Nori. It contains the element, Iodine, which is absolutely essential for thyroid health.
Iodine is also present in some green vegetables such as broccoli, but the amount is often limited because many soils have been depleted of natural minerals. This is why it became common practice to add iodine to salt, in an effort to avoid deficiencies in the diet.
The food value of Nori lies in its high protein content (25-35% of dry weight), vitamins and mineral salts, especially iodine. Its vitamin C content is about 1.5 times that of oranges and 75% of the protein and carbohydrates are digestible by humans, which is very high for seaweeds.
Nori (porphyra, laver), is a red sea plant with a sweet, meaty taste when dried. It contains nearly 50% balanced, assimilable protein, higher than any other sea plant. Nori's elastic fiber makes it a perfect sushi wrapper. Nori is rich in all the carotenes, high in calcium, iodine, iron, and phosphorus.
The Indian Long Pepper or Pippali, is a powerful stimulant for the digestive and respiratory systems. Most importantly, the pepper plays an important role in helping to increase thyroid hormone levels. It acts by increasing the metabolic heat energy. In Ayurvedic medicine, its benefit is to increase bioavailability of other active ingredients.

Tyrosine is a naturally occurring amino acid (from meat and vegetable proteins). Your body uses tyrosine to help make neurotransmitters. These help the brain and nervous system function properly. It is a precursor of the adrenal hormones and thyroid hormones. Increasing levels of tyrosine helps support healthy thyroid function. Tyrosine also supports normal blood pressure. People taking MOA inhibitors should not take L-tyrosine.
