I would say NT Factor is a phospholipid product that helps with mitochondria repair.
Per Dr. Burrascano on page 29 of his "Diagnositic Hints and Treatment Guidelines":
This product addresses the mitochondrial damage thought to underlie the metabolic dysfunction associated
with chronic diseases which, in patients with tick-borne illnesses, is manifest by fatigue and neurologic
dysfunction. It is the single most reliable agent I have found that can give noticeably increased energy levels.
When supplements known to support neurological function are added (see below), improved cognition and
memory often result. Effects will be noted in two to three weeks. It also contains high quality prebiotics and probiotics. Available from Researched Nutritionals."

Yes, it obviously contains calcium and magnesium.
I think you know I take T4 (at bedtime) and T3 (8AM & 2PM) but I decided to try the stuff because I was desperate to rid myself of the PNS symptoms I couldn't shake since going off abx in February and after almost 5 months on the Cowden protocol. Plus, I'm only able to space my AM magnesium by 3 hours from my T3...
I took 2 tablets w/meals for two months and opted out of continuing with the recommended 1 tablet with each meal after that.
My thyroid didn't seem affected the first month I took it (I get monthly thyroid labs done). Admittedly my FT3 tanked the 2nd month but I blame the motherwort I started because that's known to interfere with conversion. I didn't even feel the change in my FT3 level and was able to start a T3 dose increase without much incident.
I stopped only to save money and because I've improved....I can't say NT Factor gets the sole credit because I'm taking soooo much stuff to help with my nervous system.
I can say that I think I'm back to my pre-Lyme energy level - yay :)
