SHOOT ME A MESSAGE PLEASE
Little Buddy, T3 (cytomel) and T4 is thyroid hormone and it's NOT a supplement. It's a hormone that regulates metabolism, mostly. You can research it on your own.
Liothyronine sodium is the L-isomer of triiodothyronine (T3), a form of thyroid hormone used to treat hypothyroidism and myxedema coma. It is marketed under the brand name Cytomel (or Tertroxin in Australia).
T3 and T4 are widely used for medical and cosmetic reasons. Small amounts of T3 are legal for research purposes, and are widely available online.
Thyroid is NOT a steroid. Steroids are those hormones that are soluble in lipids, such as estrogen, cortisone, testosterone, and its derivatives. For the record, for the morons here, GH (Growth Hormone) is not a steroid, either.
There's SO MUCH misinformation floating around.
If you'd like to read more, go to any good muscle board, or Wikipedia, or webmd. The answers await you a "google" away.
I'm sorry that metta8 is ignorant and doesn't understand the information in front of him, and didn't do enough research to speak in even a remotely qualified way.
I've taken time to correct that just a bit for you, and you should feel free to research this further, on your own.
Liothyronine is the most potent form of thyroid hormone. As such, it acts on the body to increase the basal metabolic rate, affect protein synthesis and increase the body's sensitivity to catecholamines (such as adrenaline) by permissiveness. The thyroid hormones are essential to proper development and differentiation of all cells of the human body. These hormones also regulate protein, fat, and carbohydrate metabolism, affecting how human cells use energetic compounds.
In comparison to levothyroxine (T4), liothyronine has a faster onset of action as well as a shorter biological half-life, which may be due to less plasma protein binding to thyroxine-binding globulin and transthyretin. However, studies have shown that using liothyronine in combination with levothyroxine does not produce synergistic effects; other studies discourage the use of these two medications concurrently.
Numerous studies have shown that even after 30 years of use, thyroid levels adjust within about three days of supplementation. You can read all about it online at places like bodybuilding.com. There are quoted studies all over the place that you can study up on. It's been through many trials over decades.
T3 is commonly used by folks who are hypothyroid, models (to keep that starving look), fitness competitors (to get very lean), fat asses who need help in weight reduction, and bodybuilders who want to grow faster, while staying lean.
Thyroid has a long history of medical and non-medical use.
Note that clen and other OTC (Over The Counter) stuff work differently than T3. They work by invoking a shiver response.
Any good muscle board will have LOADS of information on these topics.
At 5'8" and 141#, the very last thing you need is stimulants and stuff that will burn your muscle mass. Thyroid, T3, or T4, is not selective in what it burns. You have very little to burn. EAT.
