CAPLABS Thyroid & Metabolism Support is designed to give you the fundamental support you need to support a rigorous training and diet routine. As you may know, your metabolism and hormones can decline when the body goes through prolonged stress such as during a diet or daily intense exercise. Over the long-run, this can make long-term weight loss and weight maintenance a challenge, which is why we designed CAPLABS Thyroid & Metabolism Support.
CAPLABS Thyroid & Metabolism Support contains specific ingredients such as Vitamin B-12, Iodine, Magnesium, Ashwagandha, Selenium and Zinc that may provide support for your hormones and metabolism.
Along with potentially supporting your metabolism, specific ingredients such as Ashwagandha and Magnesium may also aid in relaxation and help with recovery, reducing stress and lowering cortisol levels.
