Protein Powder for Hypothyroidism & Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
Functional Fuel Complete is the ideal protein powder for those who have thyroid related issues including hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s.
Because it contains a balanced blend of amino acids and protein from sources which do not include soy, dairy or gluten.
It’s not uncommon for protein powders to contain protein sourced from a dairy which can cause intestinal and immune issues in those who have thyroid related problems.
This can be avoided with a high quality, plant-based protein powder.
Beyond the typical protein powder, Functional Fuel also contains 22 vitamins and minerals as well as other additions which help your body absorb and utilize protein including Artinia and Aminogen.
This balanced combination has been used in hundreds of thyroid patients and has worked well to help replete vital nutrients, improve energy and help with weight loss.
Protein Powder is Important for Your Thyroid & Metabolism
If you are a thyroid patient then you know the reality of feeling fatigued, having low energy and gaining weight.
These symptoms are all too common among thyroid patients.
But what actually causes them?
While thyroid hormone certainly plays an important role, the role of diet and nutrient status should not be overlooked.
An unbalanced (or poor) diet can exacerbate your thyroid condition and lead to nutrient deficiencies.
That’s where functional food and protein powder step in:
Functional food is used to describe food which has a purpose beyond its function as a food.
It helps improve the function of your body and in this case, functional fuel is helping to provide your body with nutrients and helping to improve your thyroid.
It does this through its blend of protein and its blend of nutrients and trace minerals.
When you use Functional Fuel you can be sure that you are getting at least 1 amazing meal per day which is replete with nutrients, vitamins, protein and other ingredients that your body and your thyroid need to function day-to-day.
But high-quality protein powder does more than just provide your body with nutrients.
Protein, as a macronutrient, also helps your body to manage your appetite and build your muscle mass.
That means using protein powder can potentially help curb your cravings for unhealthy foods while providing your body with essential building blocks to create more muscle mass.
It’s a win-win.
But, like other food groups, the quality and the source of the protein matters!
Whey vs Plant Based Protein Powder
Most commercial protein powders are created used whey protein or whey isolate.
These protein powders use dairy as their source, the whey component.
This may not be a problem for most people, but thyroid patients shouldn’t be considered “most patients”.
And why is that?
It’s because your thyroid helps to regulate your immune system, produce stomach acid and controls the movement of your intestinal tract.
That means, if you have thyroid disease, you are more susceptible to gastrointestinal issues such as IBS, SIBO, acid reflux and poor absorption.
It also means that you need to take care of the quality and type of food that you ingest! And this includes protein powders.
Plant-based protein powders tend to be absorbed more easily, and are well tolerated when compared to dairy-based protein powders.
This is especially true for those with thyroid related conditions.
The moral of the story?
As a thyroid patient, you need to find a high-quality plant-based protein powder that will NOT exacerbate existing intestinal issues and one that will be easily absorbed and provide your body with the nutrients that you need to function at 100%.
Functional Fuel fits the bill on all levels.
How Much is Too Much Protein
While protein is essential for optimal performance, you also want to ensure that you are not getting too much.
The ideal amount of protein is a sufficient amount to regulate your appetite (help reduce your cravings) while providing your body enough to maintain your muscle mass and help promote new muscle growth.
Too much protein can actually make some hormone imbalances worse such as leptin resistance and insulin resistance.
Because of this, Functional Fuel contains the ideal amount of protein at 15 grams per serving (or about 7.5grams per half serving).
This amount is designed to help keep you full and maintain muscle mass without causing other metabolic problems.
Plant protein is also readily absorbed and utilized quickly when compared to other types of proteins.

Love this product. More energy and with proper diet and exercise, I am losing weight.
Have notice energy levels higher. Also like how after drinking I feel fuller longer, Feel better overall.
I bought this for my daughter who has been struggling with fatigue due to her thyroid problems. I make her a protein shake with half a frozen banana faithfully every morning. She noticed the positive change in her energy level and overall well-being within several days. She did miss one morning after drinking her shakes for a week, and she said she felt the difference; she felt sluggish. I’m so excited to see yet another of Dr. Child’s products is helping my daughter have more energy to keep up with her very active 2 and 3-year olds.
Product taste great I really enjoyed it will definitely wait what our highly recommend it
I’ve tried a lot of protein shakes in my life and 99% of them I can’t even stand to swallow. This shake is incredible in flavor! I was so surprised by the taste and texture (I mix it with almond milk). I have tried mixing it with a variety of fruits and so far I haven’t found any fruit I like with it but it’s so good by itself, it doesn’t need add ins. The best part though is the energy level I have after I drink it. Dr. Childs knows his stuff and he has formulated this shake for people just like me... people with thyroid issues! I will not only be buying it again, I will be recommending it to my friends!
