My opinion is that its foolish to be playing around with raw organs that have not been titrated to a standardized dosage.
Kelp has a lot of iodine which irritates autoimmune thyroid disease in many cases, and is a source of arsenic. There are no numbers telling how much iodine you are recieving from the Kelp, and no indication that the dosage of the hormones derived from the various glands havr been standardized. So you have no way of knowing what you are getting from one pill to the next, or how much if any.
The hypo thyroid works best when it recieves a steady, calibrated source of exogenous hormone. You'll read plenty of stories here about what happens when peeps take their vitamins/minerals/supplements too close to their thyroid meddie so that they do not recieve their full dose.
I would not advise you or any of our team memembers take this preparation at this time.
I think a better choice would be for people to improve their nutrition by eating fresh whole foods rather than processed, and get some daily exercise.
Can you please provide the reviews of those taking this preparation? Are these reviews found only on the site that is selling this product? If so, this is a red flag.
Take care of youse~
