Liothyronine Sodium Description
Liothyronine Sodium is not an anabolic steroid, but a thyroid gland hormone (T3). In medicine it is used to treat thyroid gland insufficiency, obesity, certain metabolic disorders or fatigue. When administered, Cytomel increases the patient's metabolism. The result is increased cellular activity through a more efficient and fast use of fats, proteins and carbohydrates.
Bodybuilders are attracted to this medicine because of its ability to burn excess fat. You can lose significant quantity of fat without reducing the caloric intake too much. Cytomel is used in combination with Clenbuterol, a combination that can have extreme effects on fat burning. This combination has become very popular in last years.
During Cytomel use, the protein ratio should be around 3-4 g per kilogram body. Most proteins must come from lean meats. Shakes can be used, but you should not exaggerate with them, as they are more likely to be immediately converted to glucose and used for energy. Calorie reduction should only come from carbohydrates and fats.
Liothyronine Sodium Dosage
Usually the daily dose is 25mcg on the first day and then it is increased by 25mcg every 3-4 days up to a maximum dose of 100mcg. The dose of 100mcg is considered a very big one, few being the ones who use it. 50mcg is a sufficient dose for most, 75mcg is already a large one. The gradually increase of the daily dose helps the body to not be "shocked" by the presence of too much thyroid hormone. The daily dose should be divided equally throughout the day to keep blood levels constant. Women are more sensitive to the side effects of Cytomel and it is recommended to not take more than 50mcg/day.
