safety of boosting your basal metabolic rate

This is all very interesting and certainly makes sense, but how safe is it to play around with thyroid and adrenal functions using supplements.

I totally agree with the resistance training and have experienced this myself. Motivation seems to be my problem.

Thanks for an interesting article.

Hi Deb,

Great to hear from you and thanks for your comments.

The use of these supplements to assist your body functioning is completely safe. The nutrients that may up-regulate thyroid function will only do so within a normal range.

In fact, I have spoken with several doctors regarding this (and I don't claim to be a doctor nor do I claim to offer medical advice) and they have told me that these nutrients may be safely used by people who are currently using thyroid medication and that they won't have any negative interactions with the medication!

The adaptogens for adrenal function actually up-regulate or down-regulate adrenal function depending on your body's requirements.

For example, if you experience chronic stress (prolonged stress), it is highly likely that your adrenal glands will be fatigued or even exhausted. Not only does this affect adrenal function but it also affects thyroid function because the two glands are intimately related.

By using adaptogens you can help to nourish and support the adrenal glands by providing raw materials that the body can then use to produce the hormones it requires.

Adrian, my business partner, is a Clinical Psychologist and Nutritionist. He has does extensive research in this area and has put together the formulation that we will be launching soon.

He has prepared a formula that he will be using in his practice for assisting his clients who suffer from stress and anxiety. His plan is to use the product in conjunction with other therapies, like psychological therapies, so his clients can get the best possible results.

If you have any further questions in this area Adrian may be contacted via email:

Thanks again Deb and I wish you the greatest success with achieving your physical goals!
