Hypothyroidism is becoming one of the most diagnosed autoimmune conditions in the United States. As women, we oftentimes find ourselves overly stressed, which is why it is no surprise that women are far more likely to become diagnosed than men. According to the American Thyroid Association, one out of eight women are living with a thyroid condition. Unfortunately, the margins are only getting smaller.
Fear not ladies! In this blog post, you will learn three important benefits of taking a supplement like our PMS & Period Support. We'll dive into how this supplement can help you manage your monthly flow and hypothyroidism symptoms at the same time.
While it would be great if we all lived by a warm beach year-round, that is not our reality. This is why many of us are deficient in one of our body’s most important nutrients, vitamin D. Why is it so important? For one, it provides us with a natural boost of energy. This is especially important for those with hypothyroidism, who often feel tired and fatigued. BMC Endocrine Disorders recently shared vitamin D has a major impact on the regulation of our TSH. It also reduces the impact of antibodies attacking the thyroid. TSH is the body's main thyroid hormone and without normal levels, the body suffers greatly.
What do we do if we can’t get enough vitamin D naturally? We supplement! As with any supplement, it is best to talk with your doctor and do vitamin D testing before adding anything new to your routine. The most absorbable form of vitamin D is D3. This is what you will find in PMS & Period Support. As mentioned, vitamin D will support your management of hypothyroidism. It will also provide a boost to your immune system, reduce stress, and alleviate PMS symptoms. Pretty incredible, right?
Ashwagandha has many benefits that overlap with Vitamin D when it comes to supporting hypothyroidism. As an adaptogen, ashwagandha is known for helping the body adapt to its environment. This is something those with hypothyroidism often struggle with. According to research shared by Paloma Health, ashwagandha has the potential to lower TSH. TSH is often high in those with hypothyroidism. A high TSH leads to many of the unwanted symptoms commonly associated with the condition. These can include, but are not limited to fatigue, weight gain, hair loss, and temperature sensitivity.
Fear not! Ashwagandha is also present in Semaine's PMS & Period Support. If you struggle with low mood, increased inflammation, and cramping, this supplement can come to the rescue during your period. Thanks, in part, to the incorporation of this powerful adaptogen.
This incredibly powerful substance found in turmeric plants has, until recently, flown under the radar when it comes to the myriad of benefits it contains. For those with hypothyroidism, curcumin is often used to support the reduction of inflammation that occurs when the immune system attacks the thyroid.
Curcumin can also provide anti-inflammatory effects prior to and during your period, leading to less puffiness and bloating. In addition, it contains natural properties that boost your mood, as well as provide relief to your intestines. Our hormones fluctuate throughout our monthly cycle. Oftentimes our intestines can take a beating because of this, leading to symptoms like diarrhea and constipation. With Semaine’s PMS & Period Support, these symptoms will be a thing of the past!
