T3 which might be better known as Cytomel or simply Thyro3 is the brand name for the active substance and chemical name Liothyronine Sodium or simply Liothyronine. 

What is T3? The compound is a synthetic form of the thyroid hormone known as triiodothyronine and therefore T3. The synthetic form of thyroid hormone triiodothyronine T3 is Liothyronine Sodium. This compound is being used mainly for treating myxedema coma and most often hypothyroidism. However, the compound is also being used by bodybuilders and athletes for fat loss purposes.

Hypothyroidism as well as myxedema coma are conditions which can be triggered by graves’ disease; thyroid cancer as well as an unhealthy lifestyle. While the compound can be obtained as a prescription for such conditions, bodybuilders are still searching for ways to obtain it for losing weight purposes and the compound can be easily obtained from this website.

The compound was approved for medical use many years ago in 1956 and despite the fact that doctors suggest the compound shouldn’t be used for weight loss purposes, this didn’t stop many people from obtaining it for this purpose.

What is Liothyronine Used For? | What is Cytomel Used For? | T3 – Thyro3 Uses

As mentioned, Liothyronine found in Cytomel or Thyro3 is a medication that is mainly used to treat hypothyroidism, which is the opposite of hyperthyroidism. Hypothyroidism is a condition of not enough active thyroid while hyperthyroidism is the condition suggesting an over active thyroid.

These conditions are having various symptoms but they are diagnosed with a blood work. For example, hypothyroidism’s symptoms includes: weight gain, tiredness, low ability to tolerate cold and others. When individual is having hypothyroidism, Liothyronine is prescribed for increasing the thyroid hormones.

By using synthetic T3 found in Thyro3 or Cytomel, the individual is basically increasing the overall thyroid hormone levels and this is causing the metabolism to speed up. T3 is regulating the oxidative metabolism of energy ad when you are taking liothyronine sodium, the user is going to increase the uptake of the nutrients into the mitochondria and as a result, it would raise the activity in the oxidative metabolic way. The final result would be that the body is going to work harder and would demand more fuel, getting it from fat (and even muscles).

From this point we reach the moment why a bodybuilder would use this hormone. By using it, it would increase the metabolic activity which is leading to faster and more efficiently burning body fat, being helpful for athletes and bodybuilders into making them lose fat during cutting cycles.

Bodybuilders are using the compound as a part of their anabolic steroid stacks for allowing them to burn fat faster and more efficiently, for not losing their muscle mass (preserve it with anabolic steroids) and also, T3 is popular because it helps bodybuilders to lose the problematic 1 or 2 % of body fat which cannot be removed only with diet and cardio exercises.

Liothyronine Dosage | Cytomel T3 Dosage | Administration of Thyro3

This compound is coming in form of tablets meant for oral use by swallowing the tablets on a daily basis. It has a half life of approximately 1.5 up to 2 days and this is the reason why you would require to use it daily for maintaining stable blood levels and get maximum effectiveness. There are people who use it twice a day.

If you’re planning to use Liothyronine found in Cytomel or Thyro3 for a health condition then the treatment is going to be determined individually by the prescribing doctor. We recommend to use the compound exactly as prescribed.

Nonetheless, there are 2 different methods to administer Liothyronine Sodium compounds when using it for bodybuilding purposes when trying to lose weight. There’s the “light” method and the “aggressive” method with higher doses and longer cycle length.

The first “light” method is suggesting a dosage of 12.5 up to 25 mcg a day for a total of about 4 to 6 weeks. It suggests less side effects but less effectiveness.

The second “aggressive” method is suggesting a dosage of about 50 up to 75 mcg a day (most often with dosage split into 2 even dose per day) for a total of 2-3 months. This is going to lead to potentially more side effects but more effective.

We recommend to use the first method for the first time and we recommend to use steroids for avoiding the loss of lean muscle mass.

Liothyronine Side Effects | Cytomel Side Effects | Thyro3 Side Effects

Liothyronine Sodium found in Cytomel or Thyro3 – T3 is suppressing the natural thyroid production, pretty much as steroids are doing to testosterone. The level of suppression depends on the method of administration and is quite obvious that the first method suppresses the thyroid production levels much more than the second one.

More suppression means that you have more chances of going into hypothyroidism after you stop using the compound. For this reason is important to seriously take in consideration the post use plan. There are products called T3 PCT allowing for a post cycle therapy after the use of T3 products.

If you can’t find it, use the supplements which are found in the product such as vitamin B12, zinc, selenium and others.

The side effects of Liothyronine is a sign of too much thyroid hormones which leads to hyperthyroidism. Reducing the dosage would reduce the side effects. But when the compound is abused this would lead to hyperthyroidism which too much can be dangerous.

Some side effects that can be mentioned of hyperthyroidism are: stomach issues; body tremors; insomnia; appetite increase or decreased; heat sensitivity; weight loss; powerful headaches; excessive sweating; irritability and others.
