Another top pick from Dr. Kahn, this lemon-like fruit grows on trees on one region of Southern Italy. Bergamot has been shown in a 2015 study published in the journal PharmaNutrition to improve erectile dysfunction in men who also have diabetes mellitus. According to Kahn, such findings may be the result of bergamot also supporting healthy blood sugar, blood pressure, and blood cholesterol, while also having powerful antioxidant properties known to improve endothelial function—the lining of your blood vessels and key to cardiovascular health.
One approach to fixing thyroid issues and hypothyroidism is the use of hormone therapy. Most often, synthetic hormones like Synthroid, Levoxyl, or Levothroid are used, which contain only the T4 hormone and no T3 – two hormones produced by the thyroid gland. Instead of turning to these synthetic hormones, it is recommended to try a ‘natural’ hormone balancing treatment. Armour Thyroid is one treatment that some recommend if you’re going to go the hormone therapy route. But be sure to do further research before making any decisions, and consider trying other solutions or supplements beforehand.
