Don’t let the small size of your thyroid gland fool you.
It is extremely powerful and important. Did you know it has an influence over every single cell, organ, and tissue in your body?
This is why it’s so vital for it to function properly. And yet, the numbers are baffling. It is estimated that as many as 20 million Americans have some kind of thyroid dysfunction.
What’s even more shocking is that as much as 60% of them aren’t even aware of their condition. These statistics are courtesy of the American Thyroid Association.
One of the main thyroid diseases is hypothyroidism. To put it in simple terms, it’s when your thyroid produces way too little hormone. And in such a case, you might find yourself experiencing symptoms such as constipation, muscle cramps, weight gain, memory loss, and fatigue.
But you may also experience symptoms like dry skin, hair loss, low libido, an intolerance to cold temperatures, depression and feeling weak in general.
But there is hope after all, and we ‘d like to show you a recipe which will help you combat your hypothyroidism.
