At Forefront Health, we understand that your thyroid needs all the help it can get.
In a world where doctors are trained only to prescribe thyroid medication, we believe in helping you to boost your thyroid in every way possible.
It’s why we developed our Thyroid-Boosting Collagen Protein. Not only can it help give your thyroid the advantage you need, it’s something that can help get you back to the happy and healthy you.
Regardless of whether you currently use thyroid medication, or not, here are five ways that using collagen protein can help boost your thyroid health.
Collagen can help boost your thyroid hormone levels by simply balancing the other proteins in your body.
As a society, we tend to over-consume meats as our primary protein source and unfortunately, meats are rich in thyroid-suppressive amino acids, which inhibit thyroid function and energy production.
Collagen contains only minimal amounts of the suppressive amino acids found in meat. So consuming at least 35 grams of collagen per day helps prevent these thyroid-suppressive effects all while supporting healthy thyroid hormone production.
Unfortunately, over-consuming meat (which raises cortisol levels) can lead to other problems, too.
Your liver is responsible for converting inactive T4 thyroid hormone into the active T3 form your cells need and increased levels of cortisol can block that process from happening.
Collagen helps boost your liver's ability to convert thyroid hormone into active T3 thyroid hormone by lowering cortisol levels in your blood - thanks collagen!
Endotoxin is a thyroid-suppressive substance that’s over-produced by intestinal bacterial overgrowth, which is commonly found in hypothyroidism. It suppresses your thyroid in a number of ways, primarily by burdening your liver and preventing the detoxification of thyroid-suppressive hormones such as estrogen and cortisol.
Research shows that collagen helps protect your liver from the damaging effects of endotoxin.
Collagen can help promote the healthy detoxification of many thyroid-suppressive hormones and chemicals and as a result, it can also help to boost your active T3 thyroid hormone by improving thyroid hormone conversion in your liver.
Another essential component to healthy thyroid function and metabolism is eating adequate carbohydrates and being able to properly regulate your blood sugar.
Research shows that collagen helps to improve blood sugar handling by improving your ability to metabolize carbohydrates (glucose) without the need for insulin. In other words, it helps you use carbohydrates more efficiently, preventing blood sugar from rising.
Hypothyroidism sufferers also tend to suffer from some degree of insulin resistance. This can cause further problems, resulting in chronically elevated blood sugar.
This is one reason why thyroid sufferers are so prone to developing diabetes and helps explain why collagen can be extremely beneficial for diabetics as well.
Unfortunately, having adequate thyroid hormone levels isn’t enough. You still have to be able to use that thyroid hormone (T3) to maintain healthy thyroid function.
In hypothyroidism, metabolism becomes blocked by high levels of free fatty-acids in the blood. This can prevent your cells from using thyroid hormone (T3) efficiently.
Fortunately, collagen has been shown to prevent this by inhibiting lipolysis (the release of free fatty-acids), thereby allowing your body to use thyroid hormone efficiently.
Yet, it's not just these thyroid-boosting benefits that has people so excited.
They also love how simple and easy it is to use.
It's a completely neutral tasting powder, which means you can add it to your coffee, tea, smoothie, juice, soups, sauces, or even water.
Plus, it mixes well into both hot and cold liquids, which means you can add it to anything in just a minute or less, even if you're running out the door.
That's why thousands of thyroid sufferers have fallen in love with Thyroid-Boosting Collagen Protein and use it every single day to look and feel their best.
Collagen is the most abundant type of protein, accounting for roughly 35% to 50% of all protein in your body.
It’s also essential to support your thyroid and thousands of metabolic processes occurring within your body each and every day.
Collagen has been shown to help prevent (and even help correct) a number of inflammatory and degenerative diseases, including diabetes, arthritis, and even the big C.
Yet, most importantly, it’s a protein that almost everyone is deficient in, including you.
Research shows that we are severely deficient in collagen to the point that scientists are recommending that supplementation is the only way to “guarantee a healthy metabolism”.1
Scientists and doctors alike recommend consuming a minimum of 35 grams of collagen to meet your body's metabolic needs.
That's why we use Thyroid-Boosting Collagen Protein with each and every one of our clients.
Yet, it's not just scientists (or our clients) that swear by collagen.
Jennifer Aniston just turned 50 (not that you would know it.)
In a recent interview with Well and Good regarding her daily routine, she mentioned a protein powder that she adds to her morning smoothie that she swears by for stronger nails and glowing skin...
"There’s a collagen peptide that I’ve been loving — I’ve been seeing a difference! My nails are stronger and there’s a healthier… how do you explain it? A glow. It’s sort of that working from the inside-out thing."
Our premium Collagen Protein Hydrolysate is a 100% natural, grass-fed collagen protein specifically designed to unblock your liver, restore healthy, oxidative metabolism, and help boost your thyroid.
It also helps to reduce inflammation, regulate body weight, promote deeper, more restful sleep, restore youthful skin, healthy hair, stronger nails, and so much more!
A healthy metabolism is key to proper liver and thyroid function.
This is where Thyroid-Boosting Collagen Protein can help.
The healthier hair, stronger nails, and glowing skin are just added bonuses.
Our founder, Tom Brimeyer, originally designed and formulated our Thyroid-Boosting Products specifically for his private practice clients.
Yet, as his practice grew so did the interest in his work and products.
In 2016, due to increasing demands he began releasing his thyroid-boosting supplements to the public.
Tom understood that there’s more to your thyroid health than just your thyroid gland.
Restoring your entire Thyroid Hormone Pathway is key.
Unfortunately, most doctors are trained only to treat your thyroid gland and lab values, then send you on your way without listening or understanding that you still continue to suffer.
That's why Tom always says... "If you can’t get the right thyroid hormone to your cells, or your cells can’t use it efficiently, then it won't matter how much thyroid medication you use... you'll always be hypothyroid."
It's the same approach that Tom used to develop this line of Thyroid-Boosting Supplements.
And it's the same approach that has worked for thousands of thyroid sufferers that haven't found relief with the traditional medical model.
Unbelievable how much better I feel! I have noticed reduced joint pain, better elimination and no more IBS-like symptoms and my skin and hair are healthier. It’s hard to believe the results and benefits of this one collagen supplement but I guess that just demonstrates how much I needed the nutrients. This also tastes great in my coffee!
Thank you for making this product! I mix it with my smoothie every morning and can't tell the difference in taste or appearance. My hair was thinning before and I was full of premature wrinkles. It's amazing that I've seen a difference in one month, my skin is clear and firmer. I have new hair growth and have been getting compliments as to how shiny it looks! I love this product!

This product is absolutely wonderful and amazing. It's exactly what my body needed to hit some kind of reset button that I don't understand at my age of 69. I have lost 25 pounds and my thyroid medicine has been cut in half! I will continue to use it! I'm getting ready to place my 4th order.
