Nature Throid

I think Im going to switch to NT from armour. Can I start out with the same dose as the armour? And also do you peeps that dissolved armour under the tongue, do you also dissolve NT? Thanks

Re: Nature Throid

If you've gotten really hypo on Armour you might want to start at a lower dose with the NT and work your way up again. Some just switch right over but I suspect that the reason for some having some adjustment issues is they are starting a little too high.

I tried sublingual NT but finally gave up on it. It seems to just turn to mush and then I end up swallowing it anyway. I know it's not made to be taken sublingual but many do so anyway. I just make sure not to take it with any calcium or my estrogen.

Re: Nature Throid

I had gotten hypo on new Armour. Was taking 2 grains and switched directly to 2 grains of NT. I had a few tough days of feeling even more hypo after the switch, but it quickly wore off and I'm feeling pretty good now after about 2 1/2 weeks on NT.

I swallow my med... always have, so no changes there.

Re: Nature Throid

My numbers have changed a little since taking the new armour but not drastic. I noticed the change in armour 2 months ago and had bloodwork done 1 month ago and my doc increased me a half a pill after 3 years of being perfect. (so sad). So anyway I think I will just switch to the equivelent of NT that I was good on with armour. And your right about the dissolving, most goes down your throat anyway. Thanks again guys

Re: Nature Throid

Armour is not meant to be taken sublingual either and with this new formula it tastes like cardboard, but I take it sublingual and will do so with the NT as well so that I don't have to wait before ingesting other things or taking other supplements. Also, absorption is increased dramatically if the supplement doesn't have to pass through the digestive system.

Re: Nature Throid

For those who try Naturethroid sublingually, how long does it take for your pill to absorb completely? If you take several grains, do you take all of those sublingually?
