Sometimes the mightiest things come in small packages. Enter the thyroid. The powerful gland (located in your neck) is not-so-large-but-very-much-in-charge of all performance areas of your life, from metabolism and bone growth to hair and nail production.

I decided to give the product a whirl for myself.

At the time, I was on a strict workout regimen and a clean diet, but still found myself plagued by severe fatigue, sore muscles, and more oddly, noise sensitivity. I mean, I remember wearing earplugs to Thanksgiving dinner – it got that bad. Continue reading
