NOW Thyroid Energy - Does It Work?-Review

What is NOW Thyroid Energy?

This review is going to take a closer look at NOW Energy Thyroid. This product is a dietary supplement that is composed of several ingredients that are designed to help support healthy thyroid function and a healthy metabolism. The manufacturer claims that their supplement is a complete nutritional supplement for the support of a healthy thyroid gland.

Ingredients & How It Works

  • Vitamin B6 (from Pyridoxine HCI) - 2 mg

  • Folate - 667 mcg DFE

  • Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin) - 60 mcg

  • Iodine (from Potassium Iodide) - 225 mcg

  • Zinc (from L-OptiZinc - Zinc Methionine Complex) - 25 mg

  • Selenium (from L-Selenomethionine) - 50 mcg

  • Copper (from Copper Amino Acid Chelate) - 1 mg

  • L-Tyrosine (Free-form) - 1 g

  • Guggul - 75 mg

  • Ashwagandha - 50 mg

Other Ingredients: Cellulose, Cellulose Powder, Magnesium Stearate and Silica.

Vitamin B6 is crucial for working with iodine and helping to make the thyroid hormone. A folate deficiency has commonly been linked to hypothyroidism. It plays a role in elevated homocysteine levels and high homocysteine is commonly seen in people with hypothyroidism. A vitamin B12 deficiency is also linked to hypothyroidism. Iodine is essential for the making of the thyroid hormone. L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that is necessary for the manufacture of thyroid hormones.

Daily Serving

The manufacturer recommends taking two capsules daily, preferably divided into doses with food. This supplement is not intended for pregnant or nursing women and you should talk to your doctor before taking this supplement if you are under medical supervision.

The Cost

You can purchase this supplement exclusively from third-party retailers. We found one 180 capsule bottle online for $18.34. There are no bulk purchasing packages or discounts but that can vary according to the third-party retailer you purchase from.


NOW does not offer a money-back guarantee. This is risky because it means that if you purchase this supplement and it does not work for you or you experience adverse side effects, you cannot get your money back.

Our Review Summary Of NOW Thyroid Energy

This supplement appears to be a decent supplement that can potentially help you to achieve and sustain healthy thyroid function. It comes in easy to swallow capsules and contains a blend of ingredients that have individually been found to contain properties that can improve the overall function of your thyroid.  However, most of the consumer feedback we saw is negative. Every person can react differently to a supplement but most of the consumer reviews we saw reported that this supplement does not work. Consumers claimed that it caused them to experience adverse side effects like stomach cramps and nausea. Furthermore, this supplement is not backed by a manufacturer’s guarantee. This suggests the manufacturer’s lack of confidence in its product’s abilities and makes it very risky for the consumer. Taking these factors into consideration, you are better off purchasing a supplement with positive consumer reviews and a strong manufacturer’s guarantee.
