Conclusion of Our A.Vogel Thyroid Support Review
There were several positive elements to this supplement. It is free from sugar, gluten, and lactose. We liked that the manufacturer took the effort to supply helpful information about who this supplement is directed at, and gives clear dosage instructions. In terms of ingredients, this formula contains one of the key ingredients known to ensure the healthy functioning of the thyroid – kelp. At $17.99 for a 150 capsule/50 day supply bottle, this product is good value for money. We do also have some concerns however. The following ingredients are lacking from this supplement and could be beneficial if present; selenium, magnesium, molybdenum, l-tyrosine, bladderwrack. In terms of dosage, the manufacturer does not specify the preferred time of day to take this supplement. There is no first time buyer incentive nor bulk buying discount provided by the manufacturer. There is no guarantee nor return policy to protect your rights as a consumer. Pricewise this is a quite well priced product but it is not available for sale outside of Canada from the company website and unavailable on Amazon. We suggest that you look for an alternative supplement for your thyroid that has a reliable guarantee and return policy, with bulk buying discounts, and a broader list of beneficial ingredients.
