The bottle shows thyroid extract as 1st ingred., but the Kelp is somewhere about 200 mg., which contains iodine, which destroys thyroid tissue for those w/Hashimoto's!! It's called mislabeling! I felt great for approx. 3 days, then slowly started to feel irritable, then worse every day till at day 11 stopped completely. DO NOT BUY IF YOU SUFFER FROM HASHIMOTO'S.
Ingredient list different than advertised

Ingredient list from Iherb product webpage lists Kelp and Rice Bran as last two ingredients. Upon receit of the product, I read the list on the bottle, and it no longer displayed those two items and have been replaced by American Ginseng. FYI I haven't tried it, because I have an adrenal disorder and I'm very sensitive to Ginsengs and other adaptogens. My adrenals need to rest, not get jacked up, so I felt very sick when I experimented with Ginsengs. Needless to say, I would not have bought this product if it listed Ginseng on the webpage. Iherb offered to give money back if I shipped it back. Hardly worth it after spending return shipping costs. Especially as this is Iherbs fault. They dropped the ball on this one. So I just tossed it. First mistake by Iherb in many years as a customer. Not bad record. I took a loss on this one, that's why I rated one star.
Made me feel awful!

I have Hashimotos and I think I may be suffering from adrenal stress also. The product is great if you need a boost but it contains other ingredients, like adrenal gland, that I can't take. Unfortunately the rest went in the bin!
Mislabeled and mislead!

The labeled ingredients did not say that ginseng was substituted for kelp. I can't take ginseng and it is not appropriate for everyone so beware that your getting it if you order this product. Feel rather ripped off...
not sure if it works

seems less potent than porcine thyroid. In fact, I feel exhausted on this alone.
