Thyroid (Armour)
 
Armour Thyroid is a natural replacement for thyroid hormone to counteract age-related thyroid problems. Thyroid hormones affect the body's use of vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates, fats, electrolytes, and water, and regulates the body's immune response. They can also alter the actions of other hormones and drugs. Armour Thyroid is a natural, porcine-derived thyroid replacement containing both T4 and T3. OHP offer Armour thyroid in 1/4 grain, whole grain and now two-grain.
Dosage
Dosages of whole thyroid extracts depend on your age and thyroid condition. As a rough guide they are 15mg to 30mg daily, increasing to 60mg daily after a couple of weeks if necessary. If you are over 40 years of age and have no overt endocrine disease and you wish to slow the aging process, just a small regular whole thyroid supplement can raise energy levels, allow clearer thinking and improve bowel function. One grain (equivalent to 60mg) or higher dosages are potent and usually require temperature monitoring and occasional blood tests. Persons with more-serious thyroid conditions are often be prescribed one grain. Dosages under a physician's guidance can often reach three to five grains daily. Dosages of more than one grain are usually increased by a grain over one to two weeks. Quarter grain and half grain whole thyroid supplements (15mg to 30mg)) provide less potency and are used to support an aging thyroid condition. However, long-term use of low dose whole thyroid extracts may also require occasional breaks and monitoring.
Safety
Reduce or stop thyroid supplementation if you feel unwell, your rising-from-bed-in-the-morning temperature is over 98.2 degrees Fahrenheit, your resting pulse is more than 75 beats a minute or your thyroid function blood tests are abnormal. Persons taking prescription medication and pregnant or lactating women should consult a physician before using this product.
