Tip The Scale In Your Favour

Hypothyroidism or low thyroid is generally treated with the use of T4. However, some patients find that T4 supplementation alone does not completely resolve symptoms.
‍Compounded thyroid hormones offers prescribes a way to better manage patient symptoms and outcomes. This includes T3 capsules as a slow release capsules, thyroid extract and personalised blends of vitamins & minerals.

Natural Desiccated Thyroid Extract

Also known as NDT or Porcine Thyroid Extract is a popular treatment option we see prescribed for hypothyroidism or low thyroid. Thyroid extract is a natural thyroid replacement therapy that contains a standardised combination of T4 and T3.
Our thyroid extract capsules come free of allergen causing fillers such as lactose and gluten with the option of vegetable or gelatine based capsules also being available.

*Prescription is required from an Australian Registered Prescriber.

T3 Capsules Slow-Release

T3 Slow Release Capsules

T3 is a short lived but more active form of our thyroid hormones. Our bodies convert T4 to T3 in our tissues regularly throughout the day to achieve provide a consistent amount of T3 in our body throughout the day. To mimic this, we compound slow release T3 capsules.

*Prescription is required from an Australian Registered Prescriber.


Patient Satisfaction

Thyroid extract contains a fixed ratio of T4 to T3. Sometimes, NDT may contain too little or too much T3 depending on the concentration of T4 required to be prescribed making a personalised T3 capsules as a slow-release formulation an excellent, adjustable alternative to many.

Personalised Protocols

Most standard thyroid replacement protocols only utilises T4. The addition of T3 is what many believe to make a difference in how patients feel in terms of energy and ability to lose weight.

Underactive thyroid

Symptoms of hypothyroidism

We often refer to this condition as underactive thyroid and associate it with low levels of thyroid hormones. Some of the symptoms patients experience include:
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty losing weight
  • Dry skin
  • Sensitivity to cold
  • Muscle weakness
  • Many times, the symptoms are generalised meaning that they’re shared with other non-releated conditions. It’s therefore always recomended to consult with your doctor if you believe you thyroid is underactive.
