Buy T3+T4 Genesis Pharmaceuticals 50mg
Thyroid hormones are naturally synthesized in our body, but since the molecules are not complex, many pharmaceutical companies make the synthetic variety of the hormones. There are two basic types of thyroid hormones- T4 known as levothyroxine and T3 known as liothyronine. Both are manufactured and stored in the thyroid gland.
Thyroid hormone from the pharmaceutical companies are obtained in 2 ways.- either derived from animal thyroid gland (bovine or ovine sources) or made synthetic. In the USA, the content and quantity of iodine in the thyroid preparation is well regulated.
Cytomel (liothyronine sodium) is available both as a tablet or the salt of a naturally occuring thyroid hormone. T3 is many times more potent that T4
How T3+T4 Genesis Pharmaceuticals 50mg actually work is not really known but their actions involve myriad biochemical changes in the cells. The thyroid hormones generally provide energy to the individual. They increase the consumption of body carbohydrates, lipids and proteins, plus they enhance oxygen consumption. Individuals who take thyroid hormone generally have a higher basal metabolic rate. The thyroid hormones affect almost every organ in the body including the brain. One can only appreciate the importance of thyroid hormone when one observes patients who are deficient in the hormone.
Thyroid hormone is easily absorbed from the stomach into the blood stream. The onset of action is quite rapid and usually occurs in a few hours. The peak activity of the hormone, however, may take several days. The thyroid hormone usually stays in the body for a few days after a single administration. One of the reasons why the thyroid hormone stays in the body for a few days is that in the blood it binds to albumin and is protected from breakdown by the liver.

Body Builders and Weight Loss
For decades, both amateur and professional athletes have abused thyroid hormone to lose weight. Since the thyroid hormone can cause combustion of fats and carbohydrates, many individuals have utlised this ability to lose weight and to perform better at sports. Cytomel has been used by individuals in every type of sport. The thyroid hormone is taken orally for 4-6 weeks and then stopped just a week prior to the event. There is no doubt that Cytomel is a very effective fat burner and enhances exercise performance. Many athletes report that short duration usage of Cytomel can result in loss of weight and increased energy.
While this may be true, the issue becomes very complex because most of these athletes also take a wide variety of other supplements and hormones to lose weight
The people who sell Cytomel over the internet suggest that anyone interested in losing weight should start the drug at 25 ug/day for a few weeks. The dose should only be increased by 5-10ug/day over a few weeks. The maximum dose of Cytomel which can be taken without causing side effects is about 100ug/day. Anecdotal data from athletes indicate that it takes anywhere from 6-12 weeks to lose weight with Cytomel. The crucial thing for all users of Cytomel is to understand that when the drug is stopped, most people will have developed a state of thyroid insufficiency because the Cytomel has suppressed the thyroid gland from making the natural hormone.
So the dose of thyroid hormone should be slowly tapered over a few weeks to months to allow for the thyroid gland to begin working again.
It is highly recommended that all individuals who plan to use thyroid hormone for off-label disorders like weight loss consult with a physician to ensure it is safe.
