Thyroid Px is a balanced blend of minerals and botanicals designed to support the healthy functioning of the thyroid gland while simultaneously maintaining healthy metabolic function. Thyroid Px optimizes thyroid function, normal body temperature and general metabolic rate.
This formula can help stabilize thyroid peroxidase immunoglobulins.

Iris species contain oleoresins in their roots and are historically claimed to move fluid (lymph). Myrrh Gum Resin is a powerful adaptogen which not only augments the thyroid, but also the liver and kidney. Studies suggest that Commiphora's constituents may help to increase iodine metabolism in the thyroid and T4-T3 conversion in peripheral tissues. Given the important role iodine plays in thyroid function, Thyroid Px includes .7 mg of Potassium iodide in one capsule.
