"Through the hormones it produces, the thyroid gland influences almost all of the metabolic processes in your body. Thyroid disorders can range from a small, harmless goiter (enlarged gland) that needs no treatment to life-threatening cancer. The most common thyroid problems involve abnormal production of thyroid hormones. Too much thyroid hormone results in a condition known as hyperthyroidism. Insufficient hormone production leads to hypothyroidism". http://women.webmd.com/guide/understanding-thyroid-problems-basics

"The extract caused significant decrease in body weight but did not affect the liver enzymes in rats.
Analysis shows it contains (anti-oxidants) saponins, flavonoids, alkaloids, tannins, plobatannins and
glycosides reducing sugars and anthraquinones. These results also show the extract of (Pha Krabit)
Helicteres isora is relatively safe toxicologically, thus the traditional folkloric tea remedy as an oral
health tonic and antidiabetic is relatively safe when used over time".

Antibacterial & antiplasmid
activities Helicteres isora L.
The results (from this study) have offered organic extracts of (Pha Krabit) Heleteres isora L. as a new and safe plasmid (loss of resistance to antibiotics) curing agent. These finding resulted in the possibility of a new type of combination between antibiotics and potential drugs effective against plasmid encoded multiple antibiotic resistance.
Identification of a novel curing agent derived from plant is significant, since majority of natural products are non toxic to human and environment.
