The raw tissue is a mix of T4 and T3. T4 must be converted into T3 to be used by the body. Synthroid is a drug T4. Many bodies do not make the T4 to T3 conversion. I once did very well on a timed released T3, but after I moved, could not find a doctor who understands this, and is willing to prescribe the T3 that made me feel so much better. It is too often a belief system for doctors. Therefore I do the next best thing, which is larger doses of raw tissue. I like this brand for the price and the 200mg strength. I take 4-8 of these per day. Actually, I was taking 8, but with Dr. Christopher's two thyroid herb formulas, am now taking 4.
This product has done very well at lessening lymphatic water retention - quite noticeably the swelling of my face and neck. I had been taking liquid mullein and lobelia, but had had to stop the lobelia, since it had begun to give stomach pains and nausea. These capsules solve that issue for me.
I expect this type of product to take awhile for noticeable changes. All I can say so far is that 3 drops covers my face well. It goes on smooth, feels good, without stickiness. I'm 60 years old, and my face is just beginning to show lines. My arms and hands are looking a little worn, so I'm using the serum on them, as well. Will report back later.

This drink has a bad taste for me, so I am mixing it half and half with Carb Solutions and adding a banana or peanut butter. That works for taste, as well as thickness. I find that two scoops is overly thick, and adding one scoop of the not really thick Carb Solutions is the perfect solution :-) I also tried Natural Factors SlimStyles. Strangely, the ingredients are almost the same, but it doesn't have that bad taste, so I would buy it again, rather than the WellBetX. I would like to hear from Natural Factors the reason for the two very similar products. Make sure you do not start out with two scoops, or you will be running to the little room.

I was not feeling well and in a hurry when I ordered this, and didn't notice that this is not the drawing salve I've known and loved. I'll keep on hand while I search for the real thing.
This is the kind of product that you take and then you forget you had the problem, while it works gently.
The softgels go down smoothly. Price and dosage are good. Research sounds like it's a good supplement. I just began taking it as part of my basic supplementation plan.
I'm taking 1 tsp 2x/day, and feeling more energetic.

I was on here hoping to buy a bigger one. This is a perfect size for most of the time, though. Mixes well, doesn't leak, sturdy. Love it.
