Can Animal Cuts disrupt thyroid gland function in the future?

I recently started using the popular work out supplement Animal Cuts. I’m curious as to if it will or will not disrupt my thyroid gland function in the future. I have done a lot of reading up on it but I haven’t found anything on thyroid problems yet.

    I don’t know if you know this: TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) is produced by the pituitary gland which then stimulates the thyroid to produce its hormones.
    ‘Animal Cuts’ contains green tea extract and caffeine.

    "Research reported in the August 2010 issue of "Human and Experimental Toxicology" showed that green tea extract caused a significant decrease in the level of thyroid hormones T3 and T4 circulating in the blood. Researchers administered black and green tea flavonoids to rats and then examined their thyroid glands."

    So, green tea may lower thyroid hormones which is bad. Caffeine in any form — including green tea — is not recommended for hyperthyroidism, so the green tea extract should be decaffeinated.

    If you suspect that you have thyroid condition you should have the following blood tests done: FT4, FT3, TSH and most importantly anti-thyroid antibodies.
