PureSea® for Menopause & Thyroid Health

The awareness of menopause symptoms has increased rapidly over recent years with more options becoming available to help women feel more confident around their menopause. However, an all-too-often overlooked issue is thyroid health which can be linked to, and even confused with menopause symptoms.

The thyroid produces key hormones that impact many aspects of health and wellness. To produce these hormones, the thyroid has to get the micro-nutrient iodine, which is only obtained through diet. Despite the essential nature of this nutrient, most women in the UK and across Europe are not getting enough.1,2

PureSea® offers a plant-based and organic certified solution to get natural iodine, through supplementation.

Not getting enough iodine from our diet means our bodies can’t produce these hormones at the level that it needs to. This can lead to an underactive thyroid, which has a wide range of unwanted side effects including weight gain, feelings of tiredness, dry skin, and more.

Making sure you have enough iodine in your diet may also help ease some of the symptoms commonly associated with the menopause. According to research, this is because the group most at risk of hypothyroidism is women who are 40+, the same age at which many women may start to go through the menopause.

PureSea® Gold-Standard Seaweed is a natural, plant-based, organic certified, source of iodine, which offers uniquely DNA authentication and traceability with every batch meaning you can rely on its safe and consistent iodine level results every time. Plus, a small inclusion of PureSea® enables up to six EFSA approved health claims. PureSea® is used in numerous menopause products to support thyroid health as well as wider menopause symptoms.
