WHAT IS HYPOTHYROIDISM?
Hypothyroidism occurs when an underperforming thyroid gland doesn’t make enough thyroid hormone. Physicians diagnose the condition by measuring the levels of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), thyroxine (T4) and triidothyroxine (T3) in the blood. In people with hypothyroidism, the TSH level is usually elevated and the T4 level is low. When thyroid hormone levels drop, all the systems in the body slow down.
This triggers a response that leads to fatigue, weight gain, cold intolerance, constipation and dry skin. But these symptoms are also very commonly seen in people as they grow older, including those with normal thyroid levels. Because some people over age 60 with low thyroid levels don’t have the classic symptoms, they often go undiagnosed. That’s why recognizing thyroid abnormalities can be tricky.
Some other common symptoms of hypothyroidism include fatigue, slow pulse, irregular periods, hair loss, thick doughy skin, hoarseness, muscle and joint pain, poor reflexes and erectile dysfunction.
How does hypothyroidism impact the cardiovascular system?
According to the NIH’s National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases’ 2012 data, nearly 5 percent of people in the U.S. over age 12 have hypothyroidism – that’s more than 9.5 million people. Five large studies with over a million participants linked hypothyroidism to heart disease, heart attacks and heart-related death. Even patients with no overt signs of hypothyroidism but a high TSH level were also more prone to heart disease and dying from heart-related issues.
Low thyroid hormone levels change the arteries by making them less elastic; to compensate, the blood pressure rises in order to circulate blood around the body. Patients with hypothyroidism often have high blood pressure as a result. Long-term hypothyroidism can cause changes in the body’s metabolism and produce high blood lipid (fats) levels, such as high total cholesterol, “bad” cholesterol and triglycerides. These elevated lipid levels in turn contribute to narrowed and hardened arteries, increasing the plaque buildup inside the heart’s arteries.
Muscle aches are also a sign of hypothyroidism. Coincidently, achy muscles are also a side effect of cholesterol-lowing statins, and the muscle aches from hypothyroidism are often misdiagnosed as a side effect of the medication. In severe prolonged hypothyroidism, the heart muscle fibers may become diseased and lead to a weakened heart. Hypothyroidism can lead to impaired pumping and relaxation functions of the heart, which can reduce exercise tolerance and increase fatigue during physical activity. Oftentimes, fluid collects around the heart, but it rarely produces any symptoms. However, in extreme cases, the fluid can accumulate over time and compress the heart, compromising the pumping ability and causing death.
autoimmune diseases, in which the immune system attacks the thyroid, leading either to hyperthyroidism (caused by Graves’ disease) or hypothyroidism (caused by Hashimoto’s disease)
inflammation (which may or may not cause pain), caused by a virus or bacteria
nodules, or non-cancerous lumps
certain medical treatments, including radiation therapy, thyroid surgery, and some medicines
some genetic disorders
Occasionally, pregnancy can cause thyroid problems to start or get worse. If left untreated, this can cause problems for mother and baby, including miscarriage, premature birth, preeclampsia and bleeding after the birth.
Symptoms of an underactive thyroid
Many symptoms of an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) are the same as those of other conditions, so it can easily be confused for something else.
Symptoms usually develop slowly and you may not realise you have a medical problem for several years.
COMMON SYMPTOMS INCLUDE:
2. being sensitive to cold
3. weight gain,( CLICK HERE FOR WEIGHT GAIN SOLUTION)
6. slow movements and thoughts
7.muscle aches and weakness
8. muscle cramps
9. dry and scaly skin<< CLICK HERE FOR SOLUTIONS>>
10. brittle hair and nails
11. loss of libido (SEX DRIVE CLICK HERE FOR THE SOLUTION)
numbness and a tingling sensation in the hand and fingers (carpal tunnel syndrome)
irregular periods or heavy periods
Elderly people with an underactive thyroid may develop memory problems and depression. Children may experience slower growth and development. Teenagers may start puberty earlier than normal.
If you have any of these symptoms, see the link below for the solution for underactive thyroid.
If an underactive thyroid is not treated
It’s unlikely that you’d have many of the later symptoms of an underactive thyroid, because the condition is often identified before more serious symptoms appear.
Later symptoms of an underactive thyroid include:
a low-pitched and hoarse voice
a puffy-looking face
thinned or partly missing eyebrows
a slow heart rate

WHAT IS THYROID SUPPORT?
Your thyroid is a special and complicated organ that regulates metabolism, development and protein synthesis. It requires nourishing with trace minerals, especially iodine. A healthy thyroid is essential to normal intellectual function, metabolic rate and calcium regulation.
The VitaPost Thyroid Support formula is specifically designed and developed from a bespoke combination of vitamins, minerals, and herbs to help support healthy energy levels, support focus and clarity, and support healthy thyroid hormone production.
BENEFITS OF THYROID SUPPORT
Supports Healthy Thyroid Hormone Production
The ingredients in the VitaPost Thyroid Support formula work together synergistically and can help your body maintain healthy thyroid hormone levels already within the normal range, so you can get the best out of life.
Supports Healthy Energy Levels
In order to maintain healthy energy levels, simple lifestyle practices can be put in place such as eating a well-balanced diet and maintaining regular exercise. The Ashwagandha and L-Tyrosine in VitaPost Thyroid Support can also help to support healthy energy levels and alertness.3,12
Supports Focus and Clarity
VitaPost Thyroid Support provides you with extra support for the brain and mind, by including Schisandra and vitamin B12. Healthy thyroid levels are very important for normal focus, clarity, and memory.1
Thyroid Support Ingredients
VitaPost Thyroid Support is a bespoke blend of ingredients specifically formulated to help support healthy thyroid hormone production.
Ashwagandha has multiple health benefits, and research has shown promising results in support of a healthy thyroid. This herb has been used in the Ayurvedic tradition for over 3,000 years to support stress management, energy levels and concentration. Many of its properties are attributed to high levels of ‘withanolides,’ compounds that take their name from the plant’s botanical name Withania somnifera.2,3
It is essential to consume iodine through diet or supplements, as our bodies can’t make this themselves. Your body requires iodine for healthy thyroid hormone production; in fact, the only known use for iodine in the human body is in the synthesis of thyroid hormones T3 and T4 by the thyroid gland.4
Vitamin B12 is another essential vitamin, which is required for normal brain function, making red blood cells, and synthesising DNA. The absorption of vitamin B12 is naturally limited by our body’s ‘intrinsic factor’, so we have included a boosted dose to increase its availability. B12 is commonly thought to help support energy levels, focus and clarity.5,6
Selenium has powerful antioxidant-like functions that help defend against free radicals. It acts catalytically in the normal production of active thyroid hormones. Supplementing with selenium can support healthy thyroid function.7,8
Zinc is an important trace element alongside selenium, and plays a significant role in the synthesis of thyroid hormones, helping to support normal hormone production and thyroid function. Thyroid hormones are essential to the absorption of zinc, meaning each supports the other in healthy people.9,10
L-Tyrosine is an amino acid involved in the process of thyroid hormone production and conversion within the body. It is also a popular dietary supplement that can support focus, clarity and energy levels.11-13
The ingredients inside Thyroid Support have been presented in numerous mainstream media and from research clinics and organisations.
“Zinc and other trace elements such as copper and selenium are required for the synthesis of thyroid hormones, a deficiency of these can result in hypothyroidism.”

“Iodine is an element that is needed for the production of thyroid hormone. . . . If you do not have enough iodine in your body, you cannot make enough thyroid hormone.”
Published by American Thyroid Association, August 2019
“Taking tyrosine helps people who have lost a night's sleep stay alert for about 3 hours longer than they otherwise would. Also, early research shows that tyrosine improves memory and reasoning in people who are sleep-deprived.”
