Who Chooses WP Thyroid?
The reasons many doctors choose to prescribed a natural desiccated thyroid product is because they contain all types of thyroid hormone. WP Thyroid provides both active and inactive forms of thyroid hormone in one tablet. Patients have reported that their hypothyroid symptoms are significantly improved when they are given a desiccated thyroid product compared to a synthetic one. In addition, WP Thyroid has minimal additives making it well-tolerated by patients with sensitivities to inactive ingredients.
