Inner Armour Blue Thyrolean Review
Inner Armour has recently come out with its Blue Line and with it the weight loss product Thyrolean.
Thyrolean contains multiple ingredients chosen to bolster exercise performance, energy, and mental focus.
It’s advertised as a “jitter free,” energy sustaining, fat loss activator. I’m curious to see if these claims are supported by evidence. Let’s look at the ingredients and a few other factors before we decide if Thyrolean is likely to work.
Ingredients Inside Thyrolean
Here are most of the ingredients in Thyrolean:
Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxine HCI) 3 mg (150% DV). Vitamin B6 is an important nutrient for metabolism, energy, and cognitive function. 
Adults should consume around 1.3 mg every day, though safe levels can be consumed up to about 100 mg. 
Folate (as folic acid) 150 mcg (38% DV). Folate is involved in nucleic acid synthesis and protein metabolism.
Up to 1000 mcg folate can be safely ingested; however, most doses are suggested between 100-400 mcg. Thyrolean’s 150 mcg will likely be enough to contribute to increased protein metabolism, and therefore, higher energy and mental focus during a workout. 
Vitamin B12 (as cyanocobalamin) 3.75 mcg (63% DV). Cyanocobalamin, or vitamin B12, is an important nutrient for protein metabolism and nucleic acid synthesis and replication. 
Dual Action Carnitine Blend 1000 mg (L-Carnitine tartrate and acetyl-L-carnitine). Acetyl-l-carnitine is derived from amino acid l-carnitine, which provides cognitive stimulation and protection. 
L-carnitine-l-tartrate (2 g/day) provides healing and reduces muscle damage following high-intensity and repetition resistance exercise. 
Rhodiola rosea root extract 200 mg. Rhodiola rosea, also known as rose root or golden root, is used to advance exercise abilities, and research suggests 170 mg improved energy levels among 56 night-duty physicians.  
Green Tea leaf extract 250 mg.Green tea contains caffeine (a stimulant) and catechins (thermogenic antioxidants). 
In one study performed on male subjects, 140 mg green tea extract reduced total 24-hour energy expenditure, which prompted thermogenesis and lipid oxidation. 
Choline Bitartrate (part of the 100 mg Fat Metabolizing Blend). Choline is similar to B vitamins and is necessary for good health. We need approximately 200 mg – 600 mg per day to maintain good health. Sometimes 500 mg or more choline is supplemented to treat certain cognitive conditions, such as memory loss. 
Alpha-ketoglutaric Acid (Part of the 100 mg Krebs Cycle Intermediates Blend). Alpha-ketoglutarate increases athletic ability, as evidenced by one study which confirmed 12 g per day raised bench press and peak power performance levels.  
Cost and Returns
Thyrolean is listed for $20.09 on InnerArmourBlue.com.
To return a product, call Inner Armour’s customer service at: (860) 656-7720.
Inner Armour wants its customers to be satisfied. It will almost always provide a replacement item for a return. Opened products must be returned within 45 days, and items received from a previous exchange cannot be returned. Orders more than 45 days old, but less than 6 months, can be returned for in-store credit. Orders older than 6 months cannot be accepted.
Thyrolean is comprised of clinically-proven ingredients with fair dosage amounts. It is unfortunate Inner Armour doesn’t refund money for opened returned products; however, the company is confident customers will appreciate its products and be satisfied with a different product in exchange, if there were any issues.
I’d like to hear more reviews about Thyrolean to see if customers notice a difference while using it. Besides that, I’d say it seems an affordable, effective product from a good company. Give Thyrolean a try then leave a comment below.
