Pure Encapsulations Thyroid Support Complex Review – The Bottom Line
Pure Encapsulations Thyroid Support Complex seems to address the needs of an underactive thyroid by supporting it with the iodine and vitamins needed for the restoration of regular thyroid hormone levels. What it lacks, according to recent studies, is manganese and Vitamin B12 to promote energy restoration and metabolic recovery from the damage caused by an underactive thyroid. Manganese is also important for the production of the thyroid hormones. For the regular consumer, this product is also difficult to buy. There are many natural supplements easily available online that offer the same benefits, or more, than this one.
