We decided to review one of the new thyroid supplements on the market. Thyrobin is produced by a California company named Rejuvica Health that focuses on providing “top quality, advanced” supplements. Thyrobin is certainly different since the supplement is in a liquid extract rather than a capsule. Lets see if the move paid off for Rejuvica Health or if it limited their options.
WHAT IS Thyrobin?
Thyrobin is a thyroid liquid formula that claims to be an advanced “remedy designed to fight the symptoms of underactive thyroid and get your metabolism firing on all cylinders.” The supplement is made by a California company named Rejuvica Health and is current priced at $32.87 for a one month supply.
Thyrobin EFFECTS AND BENEFITS
Thyrobin contains Iodine, stinging nettle leaf, shepherd’s purse herb, black walnut hull, spirulina, kelp thallus, Irish moss, dulse thallus, bladderwrack thallus, fenugreek seed, coleus forskohlii root, sage leaf, astragalus root, ashwagandha root, and horsetail. Everything other than the Iodine is in a proprietary blend, so the exact values of each ingredient are not available. Rejuvica Health prides itself on the natural ingredients in Thyrobin and uses “advanced cold-extraction processes to draw a potent, bioavailable concentration of each.” Although no vitamins or minerals are listed in the supplement facts label, Rejuvica Health claims the Spirulina ingredient provides Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Copper, Iron, Iodine, and Magnesium nutrients the Thyroid requires. It seems unrealistic however, to us, that this one ingredient in a low amount provides all the necessary daily recommended amounts.
The main difference with Thyrobin compared to other thyroid supplements is the method of ingestion. While most supplements contain pills, tablets, or capsules, Thyrobin instead uses liquid and a dropper to deliver the nutrients to a body. Rejuvica Health claims that this method (liquid extracts) “may be up to 72% more effective than pills.” They reason that because “a pill or tablet must first be broken down and digested before it can begin to take effect. Much of the substance gets wasted during digestion, and the process takes much longer.” Since Thyrobin is a liquid, the process is much shorter and thus more effective.
There seem to be doubts regarding this claim. When it comes to absorption, slower absorption of essential nutrients seems to be better for the body from what we have read. In fact, All Star Health, a popular health and fitness store, states the difference between liquid supplements and other forms “is not great enough to amount to a noticeable or significant nutritional difference.” Thyrobin’s website mentions multiple studies that state otherwise, but we had trouble finding these studies anywhere on the website or through a quick search on google. We did find, however, a disclaimer on the bottom of Thyrobin’s website that states “information contained in this Website is provided for general informational purposes only. It is not intended as and should not be relied upon as medical advice.”

Thyrobin REVIEW AND EXPERIENCES
The reviews for Thyrobin on marketplaces such as Amazon seem to be slightly positive ostensibly. However, a closer look seems to indicate that most of the positive reviews have the statement “I received this product at a discount in exchange for an honest review” attached somewhere in the text of the review. We believe it is hard to be impartial when you receive a product for a much lower price, but you can make your own assumptions.
However, according to Fakespot, a website dedicated to analyzing reviews and then calculating a grade based on the authenticity of reviews, gave Thyrobin a “F” rating with 77% of the reviews being what it deemed low quality. You can check out the rating for yourself on this link.
