Safely Buy Nature Throid ( Dessicated Thyroid ) from Canada Prescriptions Plus.
Nature-Throid is a medication used to treat hypothyroidism, which is a condition where the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. It is a natural product made from animal thyroid glands, usually from pigs.
Nature-Throid is one of the first available medications for hypothyroidism, having been released in the 1930s. It contains standardized T4 and T3 hormones, which are used to replace or provide more thyroid hormones. However, in September 2020, RLC Labs issued a voluntary recall of all lots of Nature-Throid and WP Thyroid due to potential stability concerns.
