Triiodothyronine Cytomel (T3) is a synthetic variant of the body’s thyroid hormone. The body’s natural endogenous thyroid hormone production is referred to as triiodothyronine. Whereas T3 is the L-isomer of triiodothyronine, almost identical to each other, T3 is a more potent variant and is better absorbed in oral formulations, which is why it has been developed as a prescription drug and formulation and known as Cytomel, Tiromel, Tertroxin, etc.
T3 is used to treat hypothyroidism, a condition in which an individual’s thyroid gland does not produce normal levels of thyroid hormones for normal function. Hypothyroidism also comes with various symptoms, such as low energy and drowsiness, and T3 is the main thyroid hormone used by the body.
Unfortunately, T3 is a product commonly used by bodybuilders, and it has gathered a lot of mysticism, rumors, and lies that have been spread over the years regarding its function, use, and usage. The result is that many people already have a mortal fear of T3 and shudder at the mere mention of its use. This overview will set those misconceptions straight and shed light on many common misconceptions about Cytomel.
The nature of Cytomel (T3)
T3 in the body is responsible for regulating the entry of various nutrients into cells and their uptake by the mitochondria of these cells, which are effectively used for energy production and expenditure. The mitochondria of every cell in the body use carbohydrates, fats, and proteins to produce an energy source called ATP (adenosine triphosphate). (Mainly fat) By consuming more T3, this production of ATP will increase, resulting in an increased rate of energy expenditure in the form of fat, carbohydrates, and proteins. Therefore, this is why consuming too much T3 without the use of anabolic steroids can lead to muscle loss.
The role of T3 gained popularity in bodybuilding sessions because of its ability to significantly boost the body’s metabolism and thus metabolize body fat faster.T3 is usually used during the fat loss or pre-competition training phases, as the general goal of these phases is to break down body fat, although in recent years Cytomel has gained some popularity as a useful drug during muscle building and weight gain. Cytomel (T3) is often used with anabolic steroids to better process nutrients efficiently or keep body fat levels down during periods of higher caloric intake. Cytomel (T3) is often used in conjunction with anabolic steroids because it significantly impacts overall body metabolism. The metabolic properties of T3 are indiscriminate, which is important as it will equivalently increase the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Therefore, beyond a specific dose of T3, there is an increased risk of muscle loss due to increased protein renewal. Muscle loss due to T3 can be prevented through anabolic steroids and proper diet modification due to the nitrogen retention and protein-sparing properties of anabolic steroids.
Cytomel (T3) is also commonly used in combination with other fat-reducing agents to improve its overall effectiveness, as it does work synergistically with other fat-reducing agents. Some of these include clenbuterol, human growth hormone (HGH), and other fat burners.
The body naturally produces endogenously a dose of T3 of about 30mcg per day. Therefore, this is why many users want to start “safely losing fat” by taking a 25mcg daily dose of Cytomel. In fact, a daily dose of 25mcg of T3 is actually less than what the body normally produces.
The initial attempts to “play it safe” by using very small doses of T3 were due to the fear that using T3 was a very dangerous product when T3 is safer than most other hormonal drugs (e.g., anabolic steroids).
Also introduced in this article is the concept of slowly increasing doses of T3, which has become a very popular approach but is not necessary in most cases.
Some rumors about Cytomel dosing are that “the thyroid is a very sensitive gland, and if the Cytomel dose is increased too fast or too high, it may shut down permanently.” These claims are false and are not supported by clinical evidence. One of the myths that have persisted for the past 20 years or so about T3 is the myth of permanent thyroid damage.
And the truth and reality of the matter are that the thyroid gland operates like any other endocrine gland. The thyroid has been found to be one of the slowest-responding endocrine glands to negative feedback loops. In some particular clinical studies, it was found that patients who had used T3 for years recovered endogenous thyroid hormone production within weeks. In fact, some of these patients were withdrawn from therapeutic drugs due to misdiagnosis thirty years after receiving them T3 therapy.
All of the subjects in the clinical studies described above-regained thyroid function within a very short period of time. Therefore, the notion that T3 can or will cause permanent thyroid damage should not be believed at all. These are mere speculations and rumors that have developed over the past 20 years.
It is not necessary to titrate the T3 dose slowly and slowly downward at the end of the T3 cycle. It is best practice to stop all T3 doses immediately at the end of use to allow the thyroid hormone to return to function as soon as possible. As long as exogenous thyroid hormone is administered, thyroid hormone will not be restored due to the negative feedback loop. This is true even if the Cytomel dose is slowly reduced. Therefore, it is best to stop administering Cytomel immediately so that function can be restored as soon as possible.
Cytomel (T3) effects?
T3 Cytomel improves metabolic rate; T3 is involved in carbohydrate fat and protein metabolism, so its own secretion of insufficient thyroid when body fat rises, weight loss becomes difficult, and lack of energy, hair loss, the use of T3 can be a good improvement of the thyroid gland secretion deficiency, usually low doses of T3 on the line, but not necessarily to achieve fat loss, usually normal metabolic rate, athletes will increase the dose directly accelerate fat loss. T3 with a calorie-controlled diet and appropriate aerobics will have a good effect; T3 is a fat loss tool, and it is not recommended to use alone, hitch with the use of steroids. The reasons are as follows.
Usually, use of T3 will be drowsy and drowsy T3 from ATP (adenosine triphosphate) uptake of energy, the higher the intake of T3, the body’s metabolic rate will also rise, and the depletion of ATP, your lean body weight to supply energy, is muscle loss, which is what you need anabolic products with, to avoid muscle loss, of course, pure weight loss does not need competitive state, do not care about muscle that alone use is completely fine.
The T3 is a good way to get the most out of your body.
T3 with growth hormone fat loss effect will be better, plus beta-2 stimulant clenbuterol will be faster; a high dose of growth hormone will cause their own T3 secretion to be insufficient, this time supplementation, although not necessary, but with the fat loss to be much faster.
Cytomel (T3) Side effects and use strategies?
T3 is very well tolerated by a large number of healthy adults and causes side effects, usually from overdose and uncontrolled abuse. Side effects include headaches, sweating, irregular heart rate, nervousness and anxiety, increased bowel movements, menstrual disorders in women, particularly high dose abuse, and prolonged use resulting in angina pectoris, shock, and heart rate failure. On the whole, T3 is a very safe thyroid drug. High-dose, long-term use will not occur if it is not abused.
I would like to say: refuse to abuse, use wisely and scientifically, and get the best results with minimal side effects.
Hypothyroidism after stopping the medication, generally cause hypothyroidism after stopping the medication, then the fat starts to accumulate again; as mentioned above about hypothyroidism, this kind of dependence can happen, usually caused by improper use, where to stop, how to arrange the use cycle, mastering the number of problems, how to deal with the end of the cycle? As long as it is not abusive, reasonable use after stopping the drug recovery is not a problem, and no control is in place, congratulations on getting hypothyroidism lucky.
Treatment of hypothyroidism, 25mcg/day, hospital review according to the situation as appropriate to increase, can be appropriate to increase 50mcg/day. Generally, 25-50 can meet the demand and be taken at once. Athletes generally start with 25mcg and slowly increase the dose; the vast majority of people do not need to exceed the daily dose of 75-100; the use of cycles 6-8 weeks and 8-12 weeks is also acceptable, but the risk of hypothyroidism to improve the general healthy adult’s reasonable use of basic does not appear to be a problem.
