Many people unknowingly have a metabolic disorder called hypothyroidism or an underactive thyroid gland. Since the thyroid gland is responsible for controlling much of your body’s metabolism, an in-ability to lose weight can indicate low levels of the thyroid hormone. Other symptoms of an underactive thyroid can include chronic fa-tigue and depression. Using a blood test, your doctor can check your thyroid and treat you with a synthetic thyroid supplement to return your metabolism to normal. Natural thyroid hormone therapy is also
available, and many of the metabolism-boosting foods and supplements in this book will be helpful. One example is LeanFactor, a synergistic blend of ingredients important for thyroid function and the addition of lean muscle tissue. It contains guggulsterones which improve the actions of the thyroid
and its hormones; forskolin, which increases the ability of cells to
respond to signals from thyroid and adrenal hormones; and potassium, which is strongly related to the transport of potassium ions across the cell membrane. A depressed sodium potassium pump will lead to a depressed basal metabolic rate. Consider LeanFactor your thyroid insurance policy!
