Of course: B"sd Naturethyroid and Armour thyroid are made of dessicated livestock thyroid - I believe manufactured at the same facility. Accordingly, they contain the mix of thryoid hormones found in barns and pastures and have a bit more T3 - cytomel, (liothyronine) relative to T4-synthroid. Much more convenient than split does replacement, but on the other hand allow for less flexible dosing plan s. Glad to discuss
