What Is Whole Thyroid?
Whole Thyroid USP is a pharmaceutical grade desiccated extract from the thyroid glands of healthy pigs. It is used for the treatment of low thyroid function (hypothyroidism) of any sort except transient hypothyroidism during the recovery phase of subacute thyroiditis.
It is standardized to contain thyroxine (T4) and tri-iodothyronine (T3) hormones in a ratio of approximately 4:1 (T4:T3) using lactose as a diluent to ensure that the potency is in the required range.
What are the ingredients in Whole Thyroid Capsules?
Our Whole Thyroid capsules contain Whole Thyroid USP* and microcrystalline cellulose in a gelatine** capsule shell. Some strengths may only contain Whole Thyroid USP.
*Whole Thyroid USP contains lactose.
**Unless cellulose capsule shells are requested.
When to take Whole Thyroid Capsules?
Whole Thyroid capsules should be taken with water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Wait for at least half an hour before having food or drinks especially those containing calcium.
