Nutri Thyroid is a hormone-free glandular extract providing 140mg of thyroid concentrate from a bovine source. Nutri Thyroid does not contain any hormones.
The thyroid glandular concentrate contains amino acids, enzymes, vitamins and minerals that are naturally present in the thyroid gland. In studies glandulars have been shown to be stable in the gut, survive the conditions of the gut, and an amount of the extract will pass intact into the bloodstream. In this way it may support the healthy function of the thyroid gland.
Glandular therapy uses animal tissue concentrates to support the function of the equivalent human gland health. Historically, glandulars have a rich medical tradition dating as far back as Aristotle. Bovine glands are used in Nutri Thyroid as they are very similar to human glands. Up until relatively recently organ meats were an important part of human nutrition. Today however we rarely consume them.
Nutri Thyroid is sourced from grass-fed New Zealand cattle, raised without the use of antibiotics or hormonal growth stimulants. New Zealand is a certified BSE-free country and has never had any reported cases of BSE.
The thyroid gland is prepared by removing any fat and cleaning the gland. It is then freeze dried which ensures that all essential active nutrients, including enzymes, are retained. There is no heat or solvents used in the process.
