What form of thyroid should men be using?

The right form of thyroid has a huge effect on men’s muscle mass and T levels…


Hey, Matt Cook here, and the thyroid is the master of our bodies’ energy factory…

…but when it’s not working as it should, everything starts to go haywire.

The problem is, even if the doc says your thyroid is acting up, the usual treatments might not be doing the trick.

But don’t worry, I’ve got the scoop on a simple way to get your thyroid back on track that most guys don’t know about…

Today I learned a new word: BIONICIf you don’t know what that is, it means “having ordinary human powers increased by the aid of electronic devices.”

In other words… “superhuman.”

So, imagine, what if your manhood was so powerful its qualities can be only described as “superhuman”?It’s possible… and it’s not with the aid of artificial devices…But simply by replacing ONE part of it?(Hint: I’m not talking about surgery, pumps, or taking risky treatments.)Want to have this “Bionic Manhood” in your boxers?


What form of thyroid should men be using?

The thyroid is a gland that controls your cellular energy production.

It releases hormones which tell the cells to produce energy.

These days it seems like every other person has a thyroid problem.

But thyroid problems often go undiagnosed. People suffer many maladies because of missed thyroid problems.

Compounding the issue is the fact that even when thyroid problems are diagnosed, it is difficult to get properly treated.

Researchers in Scotland carried out a human trial where they supplemented thyroid hormones in people diagnosed with subclinical hypothyroidism.

Subclinical hypothyroidism is diagnosed when the TSH is a little bit above the normal range…

…but the thyroid hormones themselves are within the lab range.

It’s usually an early indicator of future hypothyroidism.

There was no improvement from thyroid supplementation.

But the researchers probably did not give people the right thyroid hormones, and they certainly did not give them enough.

The human research was carried out at The University of Glasgow in Scotland. The paper was published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

The researchers were investigating the role of supplemental T4 – also known as levothyroxine or Synthroid – in the treatment of subclinical hyperthyroidism.

“The use of levothyroxine to treat subclinical hypothyroidism is controversial.”

The researchers wanted to know whether supplemental T4 could improve low thyroid symptoms in older people with subclinical hypothyroidism.

“We aimed to determine whether levothyroxine provided clinical benefits in older persons with this condition.”

Levothyroxine is one of 2 thyroid hormones. It is the storage form which needs to be converted into the active form in the body.

Many people have trouble converting levothyroxine into the active thyroid hormone…

“We conducted a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel-group trial involving 737 adults who were at least 65 years of age and who had persisting subclinical hypothyroidism.”

Aside from the problem of using only levothyroxine, the researchers used an upper level of 4.5 for TSH.

TSH is a pituitary hormone which should go in the opposite direction of thyroid hormones.

So higher TSH should mean lower thyroid hormones.

The upper level for this lab used to be 10.0. Now it is 4.5.

This is still a problem – many people still have thyroid symptoms with TSH above 2.0.

Some of the participants were given levothyroxine which was dosed until their TSH dropped below 4.5.

The researchers then compared symptoms in people who were given levothyroxine in this manner against people who were not given levothyroxine.

Both groups had subclinical hypothyroidism.

“The two primary outcomes were the change in the Hypothyroid Symptoms score and Tiredness score on a thyroid-related quality-of-life questionnaire at 1year in.”

Levothyroxine treatment did bring TSH levels down.

But the average TSH level in the treated group was 3.6 – still way too high.

It should be below 2.0 in all participants.

“The mean thyrotropin level was 6.40 at baseline; at 1 year, this level had decreased to 5.5 in the placebo group, as compared with 3.6 in the levothyroxine group.”

Unsurprisingly, the researchers found no changes in symptoms after 1 year of this protocol.

“We found no differences in the mean change at 1 year in the Hypothyroid Symptoms score or the Tiredness score.”

The problems are twofold:

  1. The use of levothyroxine alone is not effective at normalizing thyroid hormone levels in many people because of an inability to convert levothyroxine into the active thyroid hormone. Many people need the active thyroid hormone (T3) too.
  2. Bringing TSH below 4.5 is not enough. There is lots of research showing that people have thyroid symptoms until TSH is brought below 2.0.

“No beneficial effects of levothyroxine were seen on secondary-outcome measures.”

There were no benefits seen in this study because the method of treating hypothyroidism was completely inadequate.

“Levothyroxine provided no apparent benefits in older persons with subclinical hypothyroidism.”

People do improve when their thyroid condition is properly medicated. Unfortunately this is still quite rare.

Doctor says this thyroid blood test is normal – but what if it’s not?

You’ve probably heard that thyroid problems can mess with your health…

But did you know that even if your doctor says your thyroid is “normal,” it might still be hurting you?

Research shows that having a thyroid test level that’s just a little bit high (TSH over 1.48) is linked to some serious health problems:

  • Being overweight or obese
  • Insulin resistance (which can lead to diabetes)
  • High blood pressure
  • High blood sugar
  • Unhealthy cholesterol levels
  • Inflammation in your body
  • Blood clots
  • Metabolic syndrome (a combo of health issues)

Why does this happen?

It’s because your thyroid is like the “master switch” for your metabolism.

And for men, a fast, healthy metabolism is the key to:

  • Having all-day energy
  • Burning off belly fat
  • Keeping cholesterol in check
  • Living a longer, healthier life
  • Performing at your peak (at work and in the bedroom)
  • Enjoying great intimacy

So, it’s really important to fix the thyroid to have a high metabolism.And I’ve come up with a simple shake that you can make at home that skyrockets my metabolism by boosting my thyroid function everytime I drink it.

Now, my TSH levels are regularly below 0.5.
