Information about the Cytomel-25
Cytomel is an artificially produced thyroid hormone (Liothyronine) by the composition. This drug has been developed for the treatment of diseases associated with thyroid insufficiency.
Cytomel 25 contains 25 micrograms (mcg) of active substance in each tablet. The drug is so powerful that the manufacturer had to use non-standard milligrams and even more accurate microgram value to indicate the dosage. For comparison, 1 mg of the drug is equal to 1000 mcg. Thanks to this compare, it is possible to estimate how powerful this drug is and requires extremely careful use. If you do not have experience with the applying of this drug you should consult with experts in endocrinology and nutrition.
The main diseases that occur due to the lack of work of this organ is hypothyroidism. The importance of thyroid hormones is no doubt, since these hormones directly affect metabolic processes in the human organism, including lipid metabolism (the natural conversion of fat into energy).
As a rule, the violations (insufficient work) in the work of the thyroid gland are manifested in the form of excess fat deposits, since the lack of T3 and T4 hormones contributes to the accumulation in fat cells (lipocytes), and other metabolic processes are also worsen.
The use of Cytomel worldwide helps millions of people to live a full life and to overcome the ailments associated with the thyroid gland – it is enough to take this product regularly.
However, this medicine has another using – it is great as a product for the treatment of obesity. Drugs based on Liothyronine & Levothyroxine can often be found in the most effective courses for losing weight.
Such drugs are especially popular due to their mild and natural action, naturally increasing metabolism in adipose tissues, thereby burning them and using as energy.
The effectiveness of such courses tested over the years and does not require any complex diets. The presence of physical activity is the only and indisputable condition for a good result with such courses. This is due to the fact, that the hormone, entering the fat cell, causes it to release fatty acids into the blood for further metabolism, but if these acids are not demand, they will eventually settle back into fat cells and this will lead to minimal results. In the cases where the organism is subjected to physical exertion, the fatty acids released from lipocytes (fat cells) are spent as energy to ensure the functioning of muscle cells.
Such actions in combination lead to a qualitative loss of adipose tissue in a relatively short period of time. Another positive side in such complex for weight losing is that the user increases energy level almost immediately, decreases fatigue and increases the level of endurance and changes in mood are also left him.
A huge part of the energy resources and hormones in the organism works on the preservation and maintenance of adipose tissue. There is a kind of protection of a strategic reserve.This function in the body is developed in the course of evolution and helped a person to survive in difficult conditions. However, in the modern world, the accumulation of fat plays no role in survival, but only disfigures our body.
Cytomel (Liothyronine) has attracted particular attention among professional-level athletes. This drug allows you to reduce the level of fat in the body perfectly and in a short time. For some athletes, it is the preservation of necessary weight category, for others – the necessary relief and appearance.
Bodybuilders have become the most frequent users among athletes. The appearance and quality of muscle relief are evaluated in this discipline. Basic standards and competitive appearance can be obtained with a minimum percentage of body fat, as a rule, the optimal amount of fats is 6-8%.
It is simply not realistic to achieve this result with only proper nutrition and exercises. The using of sports pharmacology in the form of thyroid hormones lowers the level of fat almost to zero. However, such activities should not be done without the concomitant medical monitoring, as fat plays an important role in our organism.
