During all the hormonal changes of menopause, it often happen that the thyroid is under a lot of stress and slows down more that it should. Their is a very high incidence of new cases of hypothyroidism during menopause but often it will start showing signs a long time before medical test picks it up. Medical tests only pick up thyroids that work at less than 50% of their potential. To avoid hypothyroidism, it is then important to strengthen the thyroid before it completely goes under. Taking Thyroid Support (3 tablets first thing in the morning) and Vital Energy usually is the best strategy in this situation. The Thyroid Support from Vogel helps strengthen the thyroid, while Vital Energy from A.Vogel helps reduce the impact of menopause on the thyroid gland by reducing hormonal fluctuations.
