Thyromin 101: Basics You Should Know

Posted on April 7th, 2011 | 39 comments

Thyromin™ plays a key role in Young Living’s new, fortifying QuadShield™ four-product kit by supporting the gland that is often most susceptible to radiation exposure—the thyroid.

Consider the processes the thyroid influences in the body: metabolism, growth and development, body temperature, etc. Young Living’s Thyromin contains a proprietary blend of bovine-derived thyroid powder, adrenal extract, and pituitary extract, as well as herbs, amino acids, minerals, and essential oils that support healthy thyroid function. If you’re not already familiar with this best-selling, thyroid-supporting supplement, take a look at the ingredient information below:

  • Iodine is an element needed for the production of thyroid hormones. Because the body does not produce iodine on its own, it can only be obtained through diet or supplements. Iodine is a key component of Thyromin, giving you 1,158 mcg per serving.
  • Vitamin E supports enzymes in the body that convert inactive thyroid hormones into active thyroid hormones. Likewise, Thyromin contains 30 IUs, 100 percent of the daily value.
  • Under-performing thyroids can also cause potassium deficiency, which can lead to imbalances in many other important minerals in the body. Thyromin contains 66 mg of potassium.
  • The essential oils in Thyromin—peppermint, spearmint, myrtle, and myrrh—may have a synergistic, protective effect on your hormonal and immune systems.
  • Peppermint essential oil is one of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs and is known for aiding digestive efficiency and supporting the liver and respiratory system.
  • Spearmint essential oil is a rich antioxidant that helps support the nervous system and overall balance in the body.
  • Myrtle essential oil is supportive of the respiratory system, skin, and hair, and it has been researched for its effects on glandular imbalances.
  • Myrrh essential oil contains some of the highest levels of sesquiterpenes, which are a class of compounds that have a direct effect on the hypothalamus, pituitary, and amygdalae, the seat of our emotions.

If you are desiring thyroid support, or if you’d like to help safeguard your body from future issues, check out Thyromin and the entire QuadShield product kit at www.youngliving.com. Best of luck on your journey to optimal health!

    can i take thyromin if i am already taking armor thyroid daily

    • Heather Ann Vargas

      I have, I currently take NaturThroid, which is a gluten free option of Armor and I’ve been able to start cutting back on my thyroid meds

      • Sandy

        Armor has gluten in it? What is the specific ingredient?

      • Misty

        Hi. Were you a little more tired after starting the thyromin? How long did it take before you were able to cut back on the naturethroid? I also take n.t.

  • Robyn Movold

    I am intrigued with this product. I had my entire thyroid removed 18 years ago and rely on synthroid on a daily basis. What is your take on the possibility of Thyromin replacing the synthroid.

    I have to say…if I could back in history with my new found knowleged of essential oils and holistic health…I would still have my thyroid AND beaten the cancer that was there! But alas, that is not to be!

    Instead I look for ways to incorporate YLEO with every breath I take! I am lovin the oils, the health benefits and the way everything in my house and LIFE smell!!

    Thank you in advance for your thoughts.

    Robyn

    • Heather Ann Vargas

      I have seen many people use Thyromin in place of synthroid. You could start using in addition to your meds and see how it goes.. I know a lady fully was able to get off her meds and use Thyromin and EndoFlex only now :)

      • Susan

        I would double check with the doctor before replacing comletly. From my understanding, synthroid produces the hormones your body does not anymore (because your lack of thyroid). I think yleo will help your body regulate and accept the synthroid, but will not actually produce the hormones your body needs. I’m not a doctor, but all his to say you should double check with them first :)

    You need to make sure that you let people know that this product for the thyroid MAY only be helpful to those this LOW thryoid hormones. Anyone diagnosed with HYPERTHYROID (High thyroid hormones) or who has HIGH T3 and T4 numbers should NOT take this product. Anyone considering this product should work with a medical practitioner they trust.

    • Ciara

      What is your source that you found this information? Based on opinion, personal experience, or research?

  • http://www.bodytalk.typepad.com Laura

    In addition to the benefits mentioned above, Thyromin is a fabulous product to support a sluggish thyroid – I use it daily. Low thyroid can lead to many secondary problems including depression and is a key to hormone balance. When I found my TSH creeping up (and wondering why I was depressed, tired and lethargic all the time), my integrative doctor was happy to blend Thyromin with Armour Thyroid (another natural hormonal alternative). I’m back in range now and much, much happier.

  • http://www.myherbalplace.com Edyna

    I came across my results of some lab work performed.
    I was within normal limits on all accounts but my thyroid rated low, barely within normal limits range.
    Currently, I am on the Master Cleanse seeing actual results. Although on day 2 of my cleanse I have broken out in a rash… am trying to consume more water, which will help remove toxins.
    I have high expectations that this cleansing will help my thyroid, along with all other organs, etc. but am planning to start thyromin, Ultra Young Plus oral spray and SclarEssence for thyroid support once my cleansing is completed.
    I am on a road to better health!
    Cheers – Edyna

    • ami.

      Master cleanse in long term should also regulate hormones. Like with every cleanse releasing toxins is important. With Master c. You should go to toilet at least once a day. I prefer sea salt flush, salty water, followed by glasses of water, or as someone recomended to put salt in capsules and drink water. I know it is an old post but good to know for future. So far this cleanse was the best I have ever done.

  • Cindy

    This is great info. I’m wondering, however, how effective it is with someone who has had a total thyroidectomy?

  • Terrie Martin

    I look forward to the replies offered for the questions asked here. Thanks in advance.

  • Susie H

    Does anyone know why Thyromin is taken before bed? Can it be taken in the morning?

    • Heather Ann Vargas

      You take Thyromin at night because that is when your thyroid receives the most energy and nutrients. You can take Thyromin in the morning in addition if you are suffering from adrenal fatigue as well

  • Melissa

    I am on Armour thyriod and could not get balanced.. For me, after taking Thyromin the first night, I woke with less fatigue, this was like a miracle for me! I have been on Thyromin for 1 week and am feeling extremely better.. Now, to convert completely over to YL products. Any thoughts?

    • Heather Ann Vargas

      Thyromin is amazing!!! I’ve been using YL for 2 years and it was the best thing I ever did

  • http://www.yoursacredcalling.com Stacy McDonald

    Hi, Melissa – Did you go off the Armour before starting the Thyromin?
    I’m on Armour right now, but I’m afraid to go off of it. However, I’d like to try the Thyromin, but I’m concerned about taking them together, since I noticed Thyrmoin has “bovine powder.” Any thoughts?

  • Chuck Burnett

    I am off the Armour completely and take Thyromin plus take a daily mix of Applecider Vinegar in water with 1 oz. Ninxa Red and Lemon Essential oil. I feel great most days. Once in a while I take more Thyromin or Ninxa Red to offset really stressful days.

  • Angie

    My husband was taking Soloray Thryoid caps, made from bovine and had almost completely stopped taking his prescription Thyroid medication. About 3 months ago we were introduced to Young Living and he started taking their Thyromin. After having his thyroid levels checked last week his doctor is very concerned because his levels are way up now. When we read about Thyromin online it shows it to be made from bovine but when you look at the ingredients list on the bottle it shows it to be made from porcine, pig! This was very disturbing and his doctor asked that he discontinue the use of the Thyromin. My question is why is it that the ingredients advertised on the Young Living web site is not what is in the product? My husband has had very adverse side effects since taking the Thyromine. He has experienced heart palpitations, weight gain, and fatigue all of which were not present until he switched products. His doctor also indicated that is was very possible that this could have caused permanent damage as well as the possibility of a stroke. He has stopped taking them and his doctor has upped his Synthroid tremendously to try and get him back on track.

    • Tanya Copprue-Lanham

      I agree that this is a serious matter as well. Thanks to your comment- I hesitated before buying this product and contacted the company. You are correct the product does say “Bovine which is made from cow” but the company reply was that the product now contains “porcine” which is made from pork. This is very important to people with Halaal diets and vegetarians. I’m sorry for your husband’s misfortune, but I am grateful for your comment. Please see my reply with an email from Young Living.

    • Misty

      Did the thyromin put your husband in a hyper thyroid state or hypo? Hypo would be when the tsh goes way up, but his thyroid is underactive.

  • darcy

    i will be having surgery due to having a 3cm tumor in my thyroid… I want to know am i gonna loose all this weight. and is it safe to take thyromin and synthron medications… please im going crazy… im searching for answer. please answer.Darcy

  • Karen

    Porcine can also be derived from cattle bones or fish. Also, we only get the bottom line in the story of your husband’s illness. It’s very easy to put down a one sided story and present something as fact, when none of us know the full history of your lives.

    Having said that, it would be good, for the sake of clarity and integrity, for YL, to clear up the matter. I’m sure there might be Kosher or Halaal customers who need to know as well.

    • Tanya Copprue-Lanham

      Please see my email from Young Living under my name and comment.

  • Tanya Copprue-Lanham

    I contacted Young Living, once by phone and the rep stated that it only contained “Bovine” which is from cow- he was misinformed and incorrect. Below please find my email that I received from Young Living. Thyromin does contain “porcine” made from pork- which I’ve never ate in my life! In addition, they could not provide information if this product was safe for Hashimoto’s Thyroid condition- which 90% of US people with thyroid condition has. The company has many great products but they really should change the label, inform staff, and the public about the contents that are in the product. As someone could be made seriously ill from ingesting porcine products- particularly vegetarians and with Halaal diets. Both of which are my case.

      Which herbs are in this product? Is there any turmeric??

    • LiveALot

      This is upsetting to me. I fault YLO for not explaining the adverse effects of their products and not updating any changes in their products. To me this is so serious that I have questioned using their products or recommending their products to anyone at all. I took their peppermint orally as suggested by my sponsor. NOWHERE on any YLO site is there anything to suggest gastrointestinal upset with peppermint but NAHA clearly documents it. At the recent conference I felt the safety workshop was a joke.
      Gary Young spends alot of time prepping his sellers and pushing his products but he fails miserably in warning consumers about potential adverse effects and yes there are adverse effects no matter what the STEPFORD WIVES tell you about the product. There are other websites out there documenting adverse effects or side effects of essential oils and you would be well advised to find them before you take YLO products. The EODR is woefully inadequate in this regard.

  • Jess

    Is there a vegan version of thyromin? I am not keen on consuming anything BOVINE. Thanks.

    • Azure

      EndoFlex

  • Lorie

    I heard taking it at night versus taking it in the morning is either for thyroid or adrenals but i forget which?

    • Heather Ann Vargas

      Night for thyroid Morning for Adrenals :)

  • beloved

    Thank you ! helpful information…do you keep taking meds and this

  • Lam

    I am taking 75mg of Levothyroxine Tablets in every morning. Should I keep on this 75mg tablets when I start to take 1 capsule of Thyromin every night before sleep?

  • jennifer

    I have an 11 year old son who was recommended to take this supplement due to his readings from Zyto bio communication reader. I am very nervous about giving him this any suggstions?

  • Sarah

    But the Thyromin says it has like over 700% of your daily needs for iodine…if you have too much iodine it can harm your thyroid. So how do you know that this is okay?

    • Myriam Paquet

      I’m a bit concerned about this, too. Have you found more information on the matter?

  • KellyG

    Can you take this if you are currently pregnant?
