Nature Throid is a well-known and frequently prescribed desiccated thyroid brand. Each tablet provides a standardized dose of multiple types of thyroid hormone including thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). Nature Throid does not contain any glutens, corn, or artificial colors and flavors. Desiccated thyroid is preferred by many healthcare professionals for treating hypothyroidism.
Multiple Types of Thyroid Hormone
Patients who are prescribed a synthetic medication with only T4 hormone may not see an improvement in their symptoms. T4 and T3 are two different types of thyroid hormone that behave differently. T4 is an inactive form of the hormone that is converted in the body. T3 is the active form of the hormone. The majority of T3 is produced through conversion of T4. Nature Throid provides both active and inactive forms of thyroid hormone in one tablet. The dosages for any desiccated thyroid product will vary slightly between tablets because it is derived from natural sources. However, the makers of Nature Throid are well-known for their high quality standards and minimal variation in dosages.
Nature Throid Prescription
Nature Throid is usually prescribed to be taken 30-60 minutes before eating or drinking. It should be taken on an empty stomach with an 8oz glass of water. Other medications may interfere with the effectiveness of your thyroid medication, so it is important to take it at least an hour before other medications.
In cases where this medication is unavailable due to manufacturing shortages at RLC Labs, we may be able to provide WP Thyroid or a compounded alternative. Our compounded natural desiccated thyroid can be made in the same strength as your brand-name prescription.
