What impact on thyroid gland please

Dear James
The nutrients present in Cow pea make it an essential Herb in relation to Thyroid. Cow pea is quite high in Iodine. Deficiency of Iodine leads to enlargement of Thyroid Gland and causes Goitre. So if you feel your body is not getting enough iodine. This Herb is the best bet. Fresh Cowpeas are a high source of Zinc. And zinc is known to aid in the Thyroid function. It cures Hypothyroidism. But in case you are suffering from Hyperthyroidism. Then this Herb must be avoided. The usage of the Herb depends on your condition.
This advice is for educational purpose only. It is not intended to replace a doctor. Please consult your doctor before taking any herb.

Susan. Why did you take Cow Pea leaf ? What is the disease that you are suffering from. Yes, it could possibly be the side effect. Are you taking any other medication too ?
How much did you take, also share the form in which you took it, raw form, decoction of leaves or any other form .
