Porcine thyroid is a popular thyroid treatment in the US that combines both thyroid hormones, T3 and T4, in one dose. Porcine thyroid (also known as natural dessicated thyroid, or natural thyroid extract) is used to replace your body’s own thyroid hormone when your thyroid gland is not working. Under-active thyroid can occur naturally, from injury to the thyroid, or by radiation or medication. Patients who have had their thyroid gland surgically removed also require lifelong replacement.
The thyroid gland is essential to a normal life. The thyroid produces hormones that maintain normal mental and physical activity. Porcine thyroid Is a natural product made from a pig thyroid gland that combines both thyroid hormones in one dose. For patients with immune issues porcine thyroid is gluten-free, contains no artificial colours or flavours, and obviously contains no soy, yeast, egg, fish or shellfish, corn, peanut or rice.
As doses are often small these capsules use fillers. The filler we use in Porcine Thyroid is LoxoralTM. Loxoral is a 100% hypoallergenic base that improves the stability of the product, and enhances the release of active pharmaceutical ingredients.Interesting fact: Porcine thyroid has been around for a long time and has a weird measure of weight (grains) with one grain being equal to 60mg.
