What You Should Know
Thyrovex is a thyroid supplement that claims to boost fat burning and metabolism. The trouble with thyroid-stimulating supplements is the fact that not all dieters need thyroid support and if there is a thyroid problem, a medical doctor needs to address the problem, not a supplement company. Thyrovex is not intended to replace medication for an underactive thyroid.
List of Ingredients
- 3, 5 Diido-L-Thyronine
The ingredient list is openly published on the official VPX website, but the product description leaves a lot to be desired. We wanted proof the ingredients in Thyrovex stimulated metabolism and fat burning, but no such proof was given. Dieters are left with a brief, one-paragraph description of how the supplement works without one link to a clinical study. The product warning is nearly as long as the product description. According to VPX, dieters should be healthy and over 18 years old to take the supplement. If you are currently taking prescription medications of any kind, this supplement is not for you.
As for the ingredients in the Thyrovex formula, we agree that iodine is needed for optimal thyroid function. Iodine can be found in most table salts, so there is no need to add more iodine in supplement form unless you are asked to do so by your physician. More iodine will not boost thyroid function if you are already consuming the recommended amount.
Kelp, on the other hand, has been shown to boost thyroid function in individuals with healthy thyroid function, but only in short-term studies. Long-term studies with larger populations are needed to support the results. In rat studies, 3, 5 Diido-L-Thyronine did support thyroid function by acting as T3. There is also clinical support for the use of selenium to support healthy thyroid function.
- Some of the ingredients in Thyrovex are clinically proven to boost or support healthy thyroid function.
- All ingredients are listed on the official VPX website.
- May not boost weight loss for healthy individuals.
We are not sold on Thyrovex as a weight loss supplement, but there are no stimulants in the formula and as long as you are healthy and not currently taking any prescription medications this supplement may be worth a try. When the thyroid is functioning properly so is metabolism, but that does not mean you will lose weight. Eating too many calories will cause weight gain even if your thyroid is functioning properly.
