I've been on Idoral since December 2012. At that time I had an ultrasound on my thyroid, did blood work and felt like crap. I read Dr. Brownstein's book on iodine and decided to give it a try. I started feeling better right away, but there seemed to be something missing... so I read the book again and realized I'd left out the ATP Cofactor. Immediately ordered it, and after 1 week felt that "something missing" slip away... and I felt great!!! Moved my mother to Florida in May, and accidently left my bottle of ATP Cofactor at her place. Didn't really think much about it for about 3 weeks... then it started again... the tired achey feeling, needing a nap right after work. Oh man... What did I forget? Then I realized AGAIN that I was forgetting the ATP Cofactor. Immediately ordered TWO bottles, one as a back up...
Yesterday, (June 11th, 2013) I went to my endo for a 6 mos follow up and ultrasound on my thyroid. Not only did the small nodule on the right side DISAPPEAR, but the larger nodule on the left side was 4mm smaller than it was back in December. Also, my overall thyroid (goiter) was smaller. I've learned that if I take this stuff as Dr. Brownstein says (including selenium) I feel GREAT!! Energy levels that make me feel good enough to actually exercise mildly, clearer head, and no more choking sensation from a swollen thyroid (goiter). The surprising benefit was I lost 6 pounds without trying... that's one pound a month without struggle and emotional turmoil.
The only other thing I did was get my hormones balanced. I was diagnosed as estrogen dominant in March. All I take for that is 100 mg natural Progesterone for 14 days a month. My recommendation on this page is that you ADD in the ATP Cofactor if you're doing iodine therapy. It REALLY does make all the difference in the world.
I am a Clinical Nutritionist and this is a good quality supplement and these are 2 b vitamins that most of us are deficient in. This is part of a cofactor program that you take along with an Iodine protocol. Most of us are deficient in Iodine and if you take Iodine in too high of a dose, too quickly, and you are also deficient in the Co factor nutrients that help Iodine to be absorbed and utilized in the body, you could have some bad effects. This has just 2 of the co factors Riboflavin and Niacin, without too many fillers and added ingredients. It's not quite as pure as it could be, but I have not seen this formula anywhere else and I feel better while taking it along with my iodine.
I've taken this supplement for years - read an health article years ago where doctors had found this supplement was effective for circulatory issues in lower extremities. It has worked for me to ease issues I had with tingling in my legs and feet.
