In this video, we're going to talk about Armour Thyroid and Synthroid. What is the main difference between them, and is Armour Thyroid better than Synthroid?


Synthroid is a synthetic thyroid hormone—T4. T4 has to be converted into T3 to be active. Another name for T4 is levothyroid or levothyroxine. 

• It takes 4 weeks to start making changes. 
• If you're not converting T4 to T3, Synthroid is not going to work.

Armour Thyroid

This is a natural extract from a pig's thyroid. 

• It contains T4, T3, and calcitonin (an important thyroid hormone). 
• It takes 2 weeks to start making changes.

Some symptoms of a hypothyroid:

• Tired
• Cold
• Hair loss
• Mental sluggishness
• Weight gain 

*I believe most hypothyroid problems are secondary to something else. 

Other natural thyroid extracts: 
• Nature Throid
• NP Thyroid 

If you have a negative reaction to T4, T3, or calcitonin, and you have extreme fatigue or flu-like symptoms—you may have Hashimoto's. If you have Hashimoto's and you take thyroid extracts, it will make you very tired. Or, you may also be having a reaction because of some of the inactive ingredients in the product.

Armour vs. Synthroid
I personally like Armour Thyroid, but I'm not telling you to take one versus the other. I just want to give you some information so that you can do further research.
