But just because it's new doesn't necessarily mean that you should use it. With this in mind let's talk about this medication to help determine if it is something that you should be using. First off, what is Tirosint-sol? Tirosint sol is a LIQUID thyroid medication with very FEW ingredients. In fact, it has the fewest inactive ingredients out of all thyroid medications currently available. Tirosint sol should be differentiated from regular tirosint. Tirosint is a very clean medication but it is not as clean as tirosint sol. The regular tirosint comes in a capsule/gel cap formulation whereas tirosint-sol is a solution (or liquid). How does tirosint-sol compare to medications like synthroid or levothyroxine? While both medications contain the same ACTIVE ingredients (thyroxine or T4) they differ in inactive ingredients. Tirosint-sol has a grand total of 3 ingredients (2 of which are inactive) which you can compare to Synthroid/levothyroxine which have a 6+ inactive ingredients. And these ingredients can make a HUGE difference for certain people. These ingredients can actually cause both reactions in of themselves or they can limit absorption of thyroid medication when you take it by mouth. So, should you use Tirosint-sol? Maybe... Here's who should consider using it: - Those with intestinal issues - Those who have hypersensitivity reactions to Synthroid or levothyroxine - Those who are lactose intolerant - People who have persistent symptoms of hypothyroidism despite having normal labs - People who MUST take their medication with food or drink - People who are taking antacids or acid blocking medications for GERD Recommended thyroid supplements to enhance thyroid function: - For thyroid hormone production and conversion: https://www.restartmed.com/product/th... + https://www.restartmed.com/product/t3... - For hair loss: https://www.restartmed.com/product/th... - For weight management: https://www.restartmed.com/product/gu... + https://www.restartmed.com/product/fu... - For gut health: https://www.restartmed.com/product/ul... - For energy and adrenal health: https://www.restartmed.com/product/th... + https://www.restartmed.com/product/po...
