You’ve probably heard of an ‘under active thyroid’. It’s a condition which affects a lot of people, but generally more women than men. So what is it?
Your thyroid gland is found in your neck and although small, it plays a very important role in producing hormones, including one called thyroxine, which regulate your body’s metabolism. Modern life is tough on the hard-working thyroid; a 2012 study found a link between high levels of the stress hormone cortisol and the production of thyroxine.
But if your body is not producing enough thyroxine, your thyroid becomes ‘under active’, which will then slow down your whole system.
Symptoms of an under active thyroid include:
- constant fatigue
- dry skin and brittle hair and nails
- weight gain
Our organic wheatgrass juice can help to alleviate some of these symptoms by:
- Providing a long-lasting energy boost, due to the particularly high levels of vitamins A, B5, B12 and E it contains.
- Helping to rejuvenate skin, hair and nails from within, as it is full of minerals, enzymes and vitamins, especially vitamin E which has been proven to revitalise the body’s cellular structure.
- Warding off the food cravings that may lead you to reach for a sugary snack, as it is packed with chlorophyll, which will keep you feeling fuller longer.
- Maintaining a healthy digestive system, as abundant enzymes support the breakdown of food, while chlorophyll cleanses toxins from the gut.
- Lifting mood by maintaining maximum health and relieving the stress we feel when we are physically depleted.
Furthermore, according to the NHS website, many cases of under active thyroid are caused by the thyroid gland being attacked and damaged by the body’s own immune system. Chlorophyll, the dark green substance found in plants, helps support the immune system and our organic wheatgrass juice contains higher levels of chlorophyll than any other green vegetable, combining maximum benefits with maximum convenience.
