Was taking NDT sublingually, now swallow, feel much improved!!


Sorry for all the posts but I just want to say something. Was reading a post here few weeks ago and someone was saying they just swallow their NDT and it works for them.

I tried swallowing it and I took a real step forward with energy and just being able to do more. it obv wasn't getting into my system properly. So now I swallow it all the time and I am sure I need less.

Just wanted to report in case it works better for others.

That's great news. Yes, thyroid medication should dissolve in the stomach. Glad you feel much better.


Thanks for posting, Cat. Manufacturers of NDT design it to be swallowed whole with a glass of water to dissolve and absorb in the gut. I think the advice to chew NDT started after Armour reformulated some years ago and it was felt that the hard outer casing of the tablet made it hard to disssolve. I think that was addressed in a subsequent reformulation but the myth developed that this is the best way to take NDT.
