Yes, I'd agree with what you discovered. I've taken both. This may not be true, but I have thought of the Armour as concentrated thyroid, while the Nutri-Meds is simply dried thyroid gland. I thought the Nutri-Meds was roughly equal in power to 1/2 grain each with about a 1/4-inch diameter tablet or medium-size capsule. The tablet can be chewed (tastes like cardboard) or swallowed. Generic Armour 60 mg is 1 grain with about a 1/8-inch size. My generic will easily melt sublingually, but reports are that new Armour must be chewed to break up the cellulose and release the hormone. Nutri-Meds probably helps most when the amount needed is small, otherwise it gets very expensive very fast.
