Do I need A Thyroid Supplement?
Your thyroid gland controls your metabolic rate and thereby your energy level. Your thyroid gland can become under active for example through a period of illness or the wrong diet. In the article My Hypothyroidism Recovery, I explain how I became hypothyroid. Once your thyroid is under active, it is not always possible to fix it fully through our thyroid supporting diet, therefore a thyroid supplement can be necessary.
What Is The Best Thyroid Supplement?
Most people diagnosed with low thyroid function/hypothyroidism are prescribed Levothyroxine (T4), However, it is important to remember that the active thyroid hormone is T3 and that T4 is the storage hormone, which is converted to T3 mainly in the liver. If you have problems converting T4 to T3, a drug with pure T4 will not help you fully, therefore the best thyroid supplements contain both T4 and T3 in the same proportions as produced by the thyroid gland.
What is Natural Desiccated Thyroid?
Natural desiccated thyroid (NDT) also called thyroid extract is a dried powdered thyroid gland from an animal, usually from a pig (porcine thyroid) but it can also be from a cow (bovine thyroid). These thyroid extracts provide a similar ratio of T4 and T3 to the one secreted by the human thyroid gland and were the first type of medication for treating hypothyroidism before the thyroid hormones where synthesized. Since natural desiccated thyroid contains a ratio of T4 to T3 similar to the human thyroid gland they are the ideal thyroid replacement therapy.
Can I Get Natural Desiccated Thyroid Without A Prescription?
Some of the natural desiccated thyroid products on the market are prescription drugs whereas others are over the counter supplements. In this guide, I help you select and use reliable over the counter (no prescription) natural desiccated thyroid supplement for treating hypothyroidism.
Unfortunately, many over the counter natural desiccated thyroid products on the market are not reliable and have no thyroid hormone in them, making them completely inactive. This guide helps you purchase and use natural thyroid supplements that actually work!
What is the Best Over The Counter Natural Desiccated Thyroid?
When choosing an over the counter natural desiccated thyroid (NDT), it is very important that it contains the whole thyroid gland prepared freeze-dried so all of the naturally occurring factors remain intact in trace amounts. It is important that nothing is removed from the glandular material – that it is simply the whole gland.
