The way you feel on a daily basis depends on the health of your thyroid gland. Derived from the Greek word meaning “shield,” your thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located in front of your windpipe and sits low on the front of your neck. Because it is mainly responsible for regulating your metabolism, it is a safeguard for your health.
While many people only think of “metabolism” in terms of being skinny or fat, your metabolism refers to all the chemical reactions or processes within your cells that keep you functioning and living. Not only does it help your body convert food to energy so that you may continue functioning, it also converts food to building blocks for protein, carbohydrates, fats, and nucleic acids. Additionally, it helps your body eliminate nitrogenous wastes.
The pituitary gland and hypothalamus both control the thyroid. When thyroid hormone levels are low, the hypothalamus secretes thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) which alerts the pituitary gland to produce thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). The thyroid then responds to this chain of events by producing more hormones.
The two main thyroid hormones include T3 (triiodothyronine) and T4 (thyroxine). A normal thyroid produces about 20 percent of T3 and about 80 percent of T4, though T3 is the stronger of the two. When these hormone levels are out of whack, your metabolism is compromised and you will suffer from a variety of symptoms.
The most common thyroid disorder is called hypothyroidism, an underactive thyroid. Common symptoms include an enlarged thyroid, dry skin, thinning hair, brittle nails, puffy face, hoarseness, fatigue, muscle weakness, aches and pains, irritability, depression, sensitivity to cold, slow heart rate, high cholesterol, constipation, sexual dysfunction, and unexplained weight gain.
People with hypothyroidism show deficiencies in some vitamins and many minerals. A whole food diet is helpful, and supplementation is necessary. Natura Thyroid Support contains all vitamins, minerals, and herbs that support sluggish thyroid.
At Natura Formulas we are proud to say that our products are formulated and manufactured in the United States in a FDA registered facility that is both NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) certified.

So, if for any reason you're not satisfied with your order, simply notify us and we’ll make arrangements for you to receive a full refund or replacement. No questions asked. No unusual hoops to jump through.
Natura Thyroid Support Boosts Energy – With underactive thyroid, fatigue is very common. Vitamin B12 deficiency occurs in nearly 40 percent of those with thyroid dysfunction. Supplementing with Vitamin B12 will improve lethargy as well as other symptoms that often occur with hypothyroidism such as generalized weakness, fogginess, depression, and numbness in the hands and feet.
Natura Thyroid Support Protects the Heart – Risk of heart disease and congestive heart failure increases with thyroid disease as magnesium deficiencies are quite prevalent. Supplementing with magnesium improves blood circulation and heart strength.
Natura Thyroid Support Relieves Constipation – Constipation is a classic sign of hypothyroidism. With low thyroid hormones, many of the body’s functions slow. This includes the digestive tract which cause constipation. By improving the thyroid, the functioning of the digestive tract is improved and constipation is relieved.
Natura Thyroid Support Helps Weight Loss – Because the body’s functions slow down with underactive thyroid, weight gain is commonplace. When the metabolism is functioning normally, weight loss may occur with a healthy diet and exercise. Supporting the thyroid with the right nutrients will help.
As a dietary supplement, adults take two (2) capsules preferably with meals or as directed by a healthcare professional.
Do not exceed recommended dose. Pregnant or nursing mothers, children under 18, and individuals with a known medical condition should consult a physician before using this or any dietary supplement. This product is manufactured and packaged in a facility which may also process milk, soy, wheat, egg, peanuts, tree nuts, fish and crustacean shellfish.
Keep out of reach of children. Do not use if the safety seal is damaged or missing. Store in a cool, dry place.

Vitamin B-12 (Cyanocobalamin) 100 mcg. – High prevalence (approximately 40%) of Vitamin B12 deficiency exists in hypothyroid patients in both males and females. Generalized weakness, fatigue, impaired memory, depression, numbness, and decreased reflexes are symptoms of Vitamin B12 deficiency which are common in hypothyroid patients. Once supplementation is provided, symptoms decrease and/or depart.
Iodine (Kelp) 150 mcg. – An element that is essential for thyroid hormone production is iodine. Without it, goiters (thyroid enlargement) can form and metabolism declines. Kelp, a type of seaweed, is a natural source of iodine which can provide adequate levels of iodine to stimulate a sluggish thyroid.
Magnesium (Oxide) 200 mg. – With hypothyroidism, there is an increased risk of heart disease and congestive heart failure. Magnesium deficiencies contribute to a general heart weakness, lack of blood circulation, and thyroid function reduction. Therefore, magnesium is essential for supporting the thyroid gland.
Zinc (Oxide) 8 mg. – Crucial to thyroid hormone metabolism is zinc. A deficiency may result in decreased thyroid hormone levels and resting metabolic rate. Studies have shown zinc supplementation to have a favorable effect on thyroid levels, particularly total T3 and resting metabolic rate.
Selenium (Amino Acid Chelate) 200 mcg. – Higher incidences of thyroiditis have been linked to severe selenium deficiency. However, even mild deficiency may contribute to the development and maintenance of autoimmune thyroid diseases. Therefore, selenium is essential for supporting the thyroid.
Copper (Oxide) 200 mcg. – Though the human body needs a minute amount of copper, it is essential for thyroid hormone metabolism. In fact, copper status has been linked to decreased plasma T3 levels.
Manganese (Amino Acid Chelate) 2 mg. – Low levels of manganese affects both growth and thyroid hormone metabolism.
Molybdenum (Amino Acid Chelate) 50 mcg. – As reported, molybdenum inhibits thyroid hormone secretion and reduces plasma T4 levels while inducing hypothyroidism. Additionally, molybdenum interacts with thyroid hormone receptors, reducing T3 binding to its nuclear receptors by 40 percent.
L-Tyrosine 300 mg. – A non-essential amino acid called L-Tyrosine helps in the function of organs responsible for making and regulating hormones which includes the thyroid gland. Low levels of L-Tyrosine are associated with low blood pressure and body temperature, as well as underactive thyroid. Therefore, L-Tyrosine is necessary for proper thyroid function.
Schisandra Powder (Fruit) 240 mg. – The major active components of the fruit of Schisandra have properties that could prevent thyroid cancer. However, it is also useful for supporting the thyroid as it helps to raise glutathione which is the most abundant antioxidant within the body. Therefore, it is protective against autoimmune thyroid diseases.
Ashwagandha Root Powder 200 mg. – A powerful herb in Ayurvedic healing, ashwagandha has the ability to stimulate thyroid hormones. Studies show that it increases serum concentrations of thyroid hormones.
Bladderwrack Powder (Thallus) 50 mg. – As a rich source of iodine, bladderwrack is a type of seaweed that has been used traditionally in herbal medicine for the treatment of thyroid disorders, particularly hypothyroidism.
Cayenne Pepper Powder (Fruit) 30 mg. – Known as a spice, cayenne pepper’s effect on the circulatory system can help major symptoms of hypothyroidism as it boosts metabolism, increases energy levels, and improves body temperature.
Kelp 38 mg. – As mentioned earlier under iodine, kelp is a type of seaweed and is a natural source of iodine. It can provide adequate levels of iodine to stimulate a sluggish thyroid.
Other ingredients include rice flour, gelatin (bovine with chlorophyll), vegetable magnesium stearate, and silicon dioxide.
