Thyroid is a word you often hear bandied about with little regard for what it actually is. You may already know that it's a gland but do you have any idea what it does or where it even is in your body? Most people don't and perhaps somewhat alarmingly, nor do they realise just how vital it is to their health.
The Thyroid gland is actually found located in the neck, directly below your larynx (voice box). It is around two inches long and is often described as being 'butterfly-shaped' as it has lobes on either side which are connected to the windpipe. In between there is a connective tissue known as the isthmus. Your thyroid is the gland responsible for producing the master metabolism hormones that are essential to almost every function in your body.
Bovine thyroid supplements such as Swanson Thyroid Glandular are desiccated glandular extract made from dried and powdered thyroid glands of cattle. Completely natural, they have become popular a way to improve thyroid function. Well known signs of a low functioning thyroid include weight gain, fatigue, fluctuating body temperature, constipation, hair loss, anxiety, sleep problems and depression.
The Thyroid produces five types of hormones. The most important being:
These hormones play a massive role in interacting with all of your other hormones, including cortisol, insulin and sexual hormones. It is the interlinking nature of these hormones that really underlines just how vital a healthy Thyroid is. And perhaps, more importantly why a less-than-optimal thyroid status is associated with so many widespread diseases and symptoms.
Even the smallest decline in the Thyroid's output can have a hugely detrimental effect on our health if sustained over an extended period of time.
Low Thyroid activity most commonly affects women over 40, but it's not unusual for men and even teenagers to suffer its effects, particularly if it's hereditary. Recent research suggests that around 15-20% of women over the age of 60 may already be suffering from subclinical hypothyroidism.

Using only the grass fed cattle of New Zealand's lush open pastures, this product prides itself on providing clean and healthy glandular as well as being a great source of this fundamentally essential group of hormones.
