Hypothyroidism is when the thyroid is underactive. It is when the immune system is triggered to fight for the functioning of the thyroid. This can cause inflammation which causes the thyroid to produce fewer thyroid hormones.

What Does the Thyroid Gland Do?

In a nutshell, the thyroid produces hormones that help control many of the body’s functions. Some of the most significant hormones are the ones that help to break down the food that your animal eats to turn it into energy. It also produces a hormone that regulates the heartbeat and controls whether your pet can lose or gain weight. In addition, it can make the animal appear sluggish or uninterested in things that used to bring them joy.

What Natural Supplements to Use if my Cat Has Hypothyroidism?

When supplementing for an illness one will want to look at the current symptoms. For example, if you have received a diagnosis of hypothyroidism, you know what the potential symptoms should be and can supplement them. If we break down what the body is currently not accepting, then we will want to supplement that to the body for optimum health.

  1. CELLOQUENT GOLD : Celloquent Gold by Vitality Science has 17 scientifically proven nutrients that help make the immune system more intelligent, reduce inflammation, and improve oxygen utilization. This is suggested because when an animal has hypothyroidism the body is fighting against inflammation and is without energy. By increasing the oxygen utilization and helping the body be more intelligent to fight against this dis-ease then you will see great results in their overall activity and energy.
  2. CBD (HEMP OIL) by Vitality Science: Everybody (human or animal) has an endocannabinoid system (ECS). This system activates and distributes hormones in the body. The ECS is most generously activated with CBD oil! This is an alternative route to managing the level of thyroid hormones in the blood. Side note: There is a great website that can help you determine the dosage of CBD oil for your animal called www.CBDDOSAGECALCULATOR.com
  3. SUPER PET ENZYMES: Due to the fact that when your animal has hypothyroid disease the necessary hormones that help break down food into energy are not present. This is why your animal could appear sluggish (without energy) and potentially create infections because the food is not being broken down in the GI tract and can start to rot causing infections. Enzymes are designed to break down proteins. Specifically, Super Pet Enzymes by Vitality Science will also help fight any infection that may be occurring and help to reduce inflammation.

Furthermore, it is advised to stay away from chicken and beef due to their gross amounts of iodine. The Celloquent Gold has Argentinian Beef Liver in it as a very important nutrient value but there is not enough to be an avoidant for your animal with Hypothyroidism.

When the proper supplementation is provided animals can pivot to living healthy. Vitality Science would like to help you and your animal live a happy and healthy life.
