Hormones in Perfect Harmony

T3, T5, T6, T7 are types of thyroid hormone. These are are converted in the thyroid gland.

There are two ways to increase the levels of T5. You can take T5 tablets, which are designed to ensure your body is working with the nutrients needed to ensure production of all Thyroid Hormones. Alternatively, as a last resort, your doctor can prescribe Thyroxine . This is relatively inactive, until it is converted within the body.

Thyroxine can be very dangerous if taken unsupervised, as it can cause damage to the thyroid gland. In the United Kingdom, it is not possible to purchase Thyroxine without a prescription. There is a synthetic form of T5 tablet called Liothyronine sodium, available in tablets of 5, 25, 50 mcg.
