Excellent product and worth every penny (although I'm sorry the price seems to have jumped). I am one who was treated with synthetic thyroxine only for Hashimotos and treatment made me feel much worse. This product increased my energy, mental clarity and wellbeing very quickly (and led me to natural thyroid replacement). Same exact situation with two friends put on synthetic thyroxine - both restored to feeling well recently after I recommended this. One has dropped her synthetic thyroxine entirely and the other is switching doctors so she can go on natural. It feels like this product speaks a language your body can understand. Thyroid disorders are so common, so debilitating and in some ways invisible because we look 'normal'. This may not work for everyone but the standard cookie-cutter TSH-only thyroid care most receive certainly failed me. So glad we can get this without a prescription.
My thirteen-year-old pug has an enlarged heart and congestive heart failure. I've noticed no deterioration, at least, in the six months since she's been taking this. I take ubiquinol myself!

I've only been taking this for a week but I think I do feel more energy and mental clarity. An important nutrient, so I will keep using it.
I'm perimenopausal and a friend recommended this a couple of years ago. I took it for several months and it seemed to really help - maybe I stopped taking it because I didn't seem to have problems with my periods any more! In the last 8-9 months, however, problems started up again (periods every 2 weeks etc) so I ordered more. My months seem much more stable already. That could be for a variety of reasons but given that this helped before I am definitely going to continue to take it.
I'm trying to get my ferritin up to 60 from 21 - so far so good, after several weeks. I seem to have more energy and more muscle strength when I exercise, with quicker recovery time. This can constipate me a bit but a kiwi before bed seems to do the trick! No tummy upset... it makes a lot of sense to take iron in its many forms, as you never know how/how much you absorb.
I have Hashimotos and a side-effect can be fibrin build-up (and thick blood). I've heard good things about this, and will report back!
I bought this for my daughter-in-law who was suffering from post-natal thyroid disorder, and together with Thyroplex she has been able to come off thyroxine and feels great.
I switched to these multis because I think taking food-state supplements makes a lot of sense. These are great for ensuring that any gaps in my diet are filled in a natural way.

My 10 year old pug loves these - gobbles them up. I'll continue to buy them - joint treatment and health treatment without side effects.

Rhodiola is the only tonic/adaptogen I've ever tried that really, really works. After a few days I have energy, feel calm and am noticeably in a good mood all the time. I don't take it all the time, because I don't want its effects to lessen - but when I start again I can really tell the difference. I have Hashimotos and haven't noticed any adverse effects of being 'over-wired' with Rhodiola. This brand seems to be very effective, and it's noticeably cheaper than others, so this is the one I get!
