Iodine helps the thyroid to function well. It is also used to help produce the thyroid hormones and without it, or if levels are low, the gland will start to enlarge. Magnesium helps the gland to produce T4, as well as to change T4 into T3, but also to help boost energy levels. Whereas the element selenium helps to support efficient thyroid hormone synthesis and metabolism, but also helps to protects the thyroid gland from damage. The element manganese plays a role in fat metabolism, liver function and liver antioxidant status. Both copper and zinc plays an important role in the functioning of a healthy thyroid.

Activa Naturals ActivaThyro Review – Conclusion
The product ActivaThyro is claimed to support a healthy thyroid. There are some really good aspects to this supplement, namely that it is supported by a 60-day money back guarantee from the manufacturer. In addition, this product is free of fillers which would otherwise only decrease the quality of the product. However, even though most of the product information is provided by the manufacturer on their website – information such as the list of ingredients are so fine they are difficult to read. Consumers should not just be provided with information, the information should be clear enough to read. This as consumers should be allowed to make informed discussions. Either way, this manufacturer’s product is not made in a GMP certified factory, which would have meant that the ingredients and the label matches 100%.
