I've been taking one capsule daily for about 3 weeks now, and other than having bright yellow urine (apparently due to the B vitamins), I don't really notice any changes. I guess I'll try upping it to two capsules, and seeing if that makes any difference. It was a good price, and I don't doubt the quality of the ingredients, I just don't see it doing anything for me yet.

I ordered this product for my wife and she had to consult with her physician, since she is on prescribed medicine; however she has given "thumbs up" on using this prodict. Thank you

I am feeling much more energetic since taking these capsules. I am taking both capsules in the morning, as was recommended by other reviewers. It did take almost a month to feel consistently more energetic. I'm glad I stuck it out because it was worth it. And yes, I have been able to fit in my clothes easier! The only thing that is not convenient is that the capsules do have a very bad odor.

I am so impressed with my energy level after getting on this ! I just wanted iodine, but decided on this one instead and I'm glad I did. I've already bought a bottle for a friend!!!

I have been purchasing this product for my wife for a few years now and she claims that she feels it has helped her get good results.

I started taking this product a couple of years ago. It boosted my energy and over-all feeling better within a few days. I only take it once a day and that is all I need. It is not expensive and very effective for me.

Really helped me to feel like "myself" again, and I take these everyday!

has a nasty smell
Just recently bought some and they have a nasty smell...don't know if its normal for it to be that stinky.

No great difference
I found myself feeling neutral. It did not make me feel any better or worse. So I give it 3 leaves because it really did not effect me one way or another.

I feel a 100% better after using this product for several months. I like the combination of ingredients so I don't have to figure out each component to take on my own.

Great Supplement for your thyroid
I have been on this product for a month now, and use this with another product. When I forget to take this supplement, I notice how I feel run down, and just not as great as normal. I truly have seen results using this product with mixed supplements. Can't live without it.
December 1, 2011
Finally, a supplement that is putting back on track!! After a month, I noticed that my clothing was getting loose....now, 2 months later, I'm feeling so much better--more energy than I've had in a long time. THANK YOU!!!!

A very good Healthful Purchase
Very helpful for my weight loss program.

I was intrigued by this supplement and decided to purchase a couple of bottles in hopes that it would help balance my energy and maybe up my sluggish thyroid a bit, but unfortunately I was very underwhelmed with the results. The product is just okay and is vastly overpriced when compared to just about any B-Complex supplement (which has the same core components without the few little added extras of this pill, most of which you wouldn't miss if they weren't there). I adore Swanson's and will continue buying their products religiously, but I won't be re-purchasing this one again in the future.
Also, the recommended 1 pill 2x's a day dosage did not do nill for me. Taking both at once seemed to be the key to getting any sort of 'boost' from these.

great to jumpstart thyroid

Good ingredients for thyroid health
All the ingredients are good for energy and thyroid health. The price is very reasonable, I trust Swanson's, so decided to try it. Have only been taking 4 weeks (and have skipped a few days), so am not real sure of its effectiveness yet. For me personally I feel it's more helpful to take 2 capsules at once than 2 taken at different times. I rated "Satisfaction" a 3 simply because I have not yet taken it long enough to have a stronger opinion.

B Vitamins Plus
This supplement is mostly B vitamins, minus Biotin, (which I can't imagine why they left out).
These B's are duplicated in my multi vitamin/mineral, and in my B complex capsule so I usually take B vitamins several times a day. This is okay with me as the B's are water soluble and most don't last the whole day at levels I like.
Pricewise this supplement is quite a bit more expensive than Swanson's comparable B-complex vitamins in capsules; why I don't know.
They have added iodine, copper, and zinc here, which I like, and L-Tyrosine, which I wouldn't miss if weren't there.
These sups, too, are mostly redundant for me though.
All that said I like taking this supplement. Since I've begun taking a bit of T-3 daily I've begun taking one of these at night instead of a B-complex.

...so good. Only been taking the thyroid essentials about 10 days but I do feel a difference.
Will purchase again

I've been using this for about 3 weeks and have felt or seen no difference. I was hoping to get a bit more energy, no luck.

Take with food
Since I started taking this supplement I definitely notice an improvement in my energy level. But make sure to take with a good meal as it makes me feel nauseous for an hour-or-so if I don't have enough food in my stomach.

Wish I had been taking for years
I take many supplements based on a book by Dr. Braverman and have felt much better. But, after finding this product, it is the first product that has helped me with my weight. I do not know what it is doing, as I have had many thyroid tests before because of my weight. But this product seems to curb my hunger tremendously. I tried one capsule twice a day but that did not work. I then took 2 capsules first thing in the morning and my appetite was curbed. Sure wish I had this help when I was younger but I guess better late than never.

From my research to help my own thyroid, I find this formula contains everything I need to support thyroid function and detoxification. Along with a multiple, I have the dosages that I need. It saves me having to buy a lot of different supplements to get the amounts I need. Swanson did their homework.
