RLC labs is an industry leader in the field of hypothyroid treatments, which supplies high quality medications and supplements for the treatment of hypothyroidism. RLC labs manufactures the well-known thyroid medications, Nature-Throid and WP-Throid, as well as the products I-Throid and A-drenal to enhance and support thyroid treatments. When used in conjunction with Nature-throid and WP throid, both I-throid and A-Drenal offer patients long term, consistent and optimal results through a complete thyroid treatment protocol. Many doctors are now recommending the use of A-drenal and I-throid to their patients who are on treatment for hypothyroid due to the positive long-lasting effects these products provide.

I-throid contains a formulation consisting of iodine, iodide and potassium. Together, these ingredients support the production of the thyroid hormone, thyroxine (also known as T4). Iodine is essential in the synthesis of thyroid hormones; it is not made within our bodies, so must be ingested through the foods we eat or supplementation. A deficiency in iodine can result in an enlargement of the thyroid gland, also known as goiter. Iodide is the ion state of iodine when it bonds with another element, such as potassium.

A-drenal is responsible for combatting the side effects most commonly associated with adrenal fatigue, while also promoting healthy adrenal function in the body. It helps to maintain healthy cortisol and blood sugar levels, while also providing effective support from stress-induced symptoms. Some of the ingredients and herbs found in A-drenal can be found below:

Pantothenic acid: Also known as vitamin B5; it is a water-soluble vitamin and an essential nutrient. Vitamin B5 is critical in the formation of Coenzyme A, a molecule that helps a large amount of enzymes function in the body and essential for energy production in general.

Ashwagandha Root: is considered an adaptogen which is a nontoxic herb that helps reduce stress, decrease inflammation, and improve cognitive function. There is some evidence that ashwagandha might reduce blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. Ashwagandha is one of a rare group of botanicals and mushrooms possessing unique properties that help support the body's ability to resist and recover from stress; as well as boost energy, and provide an enhanced feeling of overall well-being.

Korean Ginseng: is a species of plant that is widely known for its various health benefits. It has been used to strengthen the immune system, help fight off disease and reduce stress. Like ashwagandha, ginseng has also been known to improve cognitive function as well as help treat male erectile dysfunction.

L-theanine: An amino acid found in green tea and is used to reduce stress and anxiety while promoting relaxation.

Ginger: is well known for its health benefits related to improving bone health, immune function and aiding in the digestion process within the body. It is believed that ginger helps with regulating high sugar levels after a meal that normally may disrupt digestion. It also improves the absorption of other nutrients and minerals.

Beta-sitosterol: Also known as a plant sterol ester; the FDA concluded that plant sterol esters may reduce the risk of Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) by lowering blood cholesterol levels, although there is no proof that long term use actually lowers the risk of developing CHD.

Adrenal Tissue: made from the adrenal glands of organic bovine; adrenal extract is used to treat low adrenal function, fatigue, stress and fighting off illness.
