Q. Can I take ThyroSynergy® even though I don't have a thyroid problem?
ThyroSynergy® contains nutrients that are generally considered safe when taken as recommended. However if you have any questions about the suitability of ThyroSynergy® you should consult with your healthcare practitioner. They are best suited to make recommendations based on your personal health circumstances.
Q. Is ThyroSynergy® suitable for those with a diagnosed hyperthyroid disorder?
For professional reasons we cannot provide specific health advice. However generally speaking ThyroSynergy® would not normally be recommended as it contains iodine.
If you have been diagnosed with a hyperthyroid disorder it’s likely you have already been advised NOT to take any type of iodine supplement, or consume foods high in iodine.
For further advice please consult your medical practitioner. They are best suited to make a recommendation based on your personal health circumstances.
Q. Can men take ThyroSynergy®?
For professional reasons we cannot provide specific health advice. However generally speaking ThyroSynergy® was formulated to be a comprehensive, all-in-one nutritional supplement for both men and women.
Q. Could ThyroSynergy® have possible side effects?
ThyroSynergy® should not produce side effects when taken as suggested.
Please note: ThyroSynergy® is not usually suggested for those with a diagnosed over active thyroid disorder.
Q. Since starting ThyroSynergy® my urine has gone yellow. Is this normal?
ThyroSynergy® contains Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin). This B vitamin contains water soluble yellow pigments. In fact, the name riboflavin is derived from flavin, the Latin word for yellow. As your body uses vitamin B2 small amounts of yellow colored compounds are released into your urine for excretion. This turns your urine yellow. It’s a normal process, and does not indicate you are taking excess amounts of vitamin B2.
Q. What are vegetarian capsules?
Vegetarian capsules are made from plant cellulose making them suitable for vegans, vegetarians, or those who choose to avoid consuming animal-derived gelatin capsules.
Q. What is the difference between gelatin and vegetarian capsules?
The biggest difference between gelatin and vegetarian capsules is that vegetarian capsules do not contain any animal derived ingredients.
More and more consumers are seeking clean-label products that don’t use animal derived ingredients. Vegetarian capsules offer an ethical, and healthy alternative to gelatin capsules. Gelatin, a common material used to produce capsules, is sourced from the connective tissue of cows (bovine), or pigs (porcine). Supplement companies often opt to use gelatin capsules as they are cheaper.
Nutritional products made using vegetarian capsules, sometimes referred to as Vcaps®, are made from plant cellulose. This makes these capsules the ideal alternative for vegans, vegetarians, or those who choose to avoid taking gelatin capsules.
ThyroSynergy® is formulated using Vcap® vegetarian capsules. These capsules are non-GMO Project verified, gluten-free, and preservative-free.
Q. Can ThyroSynergy® be used in pregnancy or breastfeeding?
If you are pregnant, or breastfeeding please consult your healthcare professional. They are best suited to provide advice on essential nutrients to support healthy conception, pregnancy, and breastfeeding.
Q. Why doesn’t ThyroSynergy® contain tyrosine?
Despite the benefits of tyrosine for thyroid health this amino acid was not added to the ThyroSynergy® formula for two reasons.
Firstly, tyrosine supplements are best taken away from meals as tyrosine is best absorbed when taken on an empty stomach. In fact, this amino acid is very poorly absorbed when taken with food. As ThyroSynergy® is recommended with meals there would be limited benefits to having tyrosine in the formula.
Secondly, tyrosine has the potential to interact with a variety of prescribed medications. To avoid contraindication issues with commonly prescribed medications this nutrient was not added to the formula.

Q. Are excipients used in ThyroSynergy®?
Excipients are necessary to ensure the quality, and efficacy of a nutritional product. Without these inactive substances the final product would be compromised. For example; excipients are necessary to protect the stability of a product so it’s effective when taken, and they also ensure the active ingredients are released in the body within a specific time frame.
ThyroSynergy® contains a minimal amount of excipients which are generally considered safe. This includes microcrystalline cellulose, dicalcium phosphate, and magnesium stearate.
In addition, ThyroSynergy® is presented in a vegetarian capsule to reduce the need for extra excipients. You may already know, when compared to tablets capsules often contain less excipients. For example, tablets require binding agents to keep the ingredients together.

Q. Can I book a Naturopathic consultation with Louise O'Connor?
Yes, if you are in Australia you can book a Naturopathic consultation with me. It’s your opportunity to gain advice, and guidance regarding your specific thyroid health concerns.
How Can I Help YOU?
+ I have a holistic and personalised treatment approach.
As a Naturopath my focus is thyroid health. In fact, it’s become my life work to educate and raise awareness of the importance of optimal thyroid health. You will be treated and supported as an individual as I don’t use a one-size-fits all treatment approach.
+ I can help you get proper thyroid testing.
I can partner with you to get private testing done with NutriPATH Integrative Pathology, Melbourne.
Comprehensive testing eliminates the guesswork and provides invaluable insights into overall thyroid function. This type of testing can assess central thyroid function, peripheral thyroid hormone activity, and checks for autoimmune activity within the thyroid.
These are the thyroid tests that provide an important diagnostic framework;
+ thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH)
+ free thyroxine (T4)
+ free triiodothyronine (T3)
+ reverse T3 (RT3)
+ T3/RT3 ratio
+ anti-thyroglobulin antibodies (TgAb) and anti-thyroperoxidase (TPO) antibodies
A comprehensive thyroid panel with NutriPATH Integrative Pathology costs AU$175 + blood collection fee. The total is around AU$240.
+ I will explain what your thyroid function test results actually mean.
It’s understandable that once you get the results you will have lots of questions. Interpreting your test results and linking them to your symptoms is a complex puzzle.
However, once you understand how all the clues of the puzzle fit together it’s a game changer.
You finally make sense of WHY you are struggling with poor health, and experiencing all the symptoms of low metabolic activity.
+ We will discuss next steps to recovering your thyroid health.
We will work together to uncover the reasons why you have a thyroid disorder, and chart the best course of action to help you reclaim the vibrant health you deserve.
If you are already under the care of a healthcare practitioner I can discuss the test results with you, and work with you and your practitioner to form the best treatment strategy.
