Welcome to Regenerate You™, I’m Dr. Nirvana!

If you have hypothyroidism or Hashimioto’s, then most likely you’ve been prescribed thyroid medication. The two commonly prescribed versions most people are given is Armour or NP Thyroid. But what’s the difference between the two?

Armour Thyroid is the brand name for desiccated thyroid extract, made of dried and powdered thyroid glands, usually from pigs. It contains a mix of both T4 (around 80%) and T3 (around 20%). Other brand names include:

  • Nature-Throid
  • WP Thyroid (previously known as Westhroid-P)
  • NP Thyroid

On this episode I wanted to discuss the specific differences between Armour Thyroid itself and the brand NP Thyroid.
