Armour Thyroid tablet
Quantity: 1 tablet
Armour Thyroid is a porcine (pig)-derived thyroid hormone replacement containing both T3 and T4 hormones in a specific ratio. Armour Thyroid is a brand-name, while the generic name is desiccated porcine thyroid. Desiccated thyroid is what people consider 'natural' or 'bio' thyroid. This is because desiccated thyroid is extracted from animal thyroid gland tissue. The most common and the type we use is extracted specifically from porcine tissue, which is believed to be most similar to a human.
Armour Thyroid is commonly prescribed for the treatment of goiter (enlarged thyroid gland) and some types of thyroid cancer. It may also improve symptoms of thyroid deficiency; which can include slow speech, lack of energy, weight gain, hair loss, dry skin, and frequently feeling cold.
Symptoms of hypothyroidism (low levels of thyroid hormone) include fatigue, cold and heat intolerance, hypotension, fluid retention, dry skin and/or hair, constipation, headaches, low sexual desire, infertility, irregular menstrual periods, aching muscles and joints, depression, anxiety, slow metabolism and decreased heart rate, memory impairment, enlarged tongue, deep voice, swollen neck, PMS, weight gain, hypoglycemia, and high cholesterol and triglycerides. Yet, more than half of all people with thyroid disease are unaware of their condition.
T4 (thyroxine) is an inactive form of thyroid hormone that is converted in the body to T3 (triiodothyronine), the active form. Some hypothyroid patients remain symptomatic on T4 therapy and T3 may also be required for optimal thyroid replacement therapy.
