Despite the long-hypothesized link between gut microbes and thyroid function, there are few controlled studies in humans that have tried manipulating the gut microbiota to improve thyroid health. However, supplementation in broiler chickens with lactic acid bacteria has been shown to increase blood plasma thyroid hormones, and Lactobacillus reuteri supplementation specifically improved thyroid function in mice.
Pronounced roy-tur-eye, this unique lactobacillus is naturally found in human
breast milk, and is one of the first defenses a nursing mother passes to her
child. When taken as a supplement, reuteri colonizes in the intestine and
provides healthy benefits.
Maintaining a proper level of Lactobacillus reuteri and other lactobacillus &
bifidobacterium cultures in the intestinal tract can:
-Help support healthy immune function
-Promote healthy digestion and nutrient uptake.
True Potency - a guaranteed potency of at least 5 billion CFU through to its
