What is Thyroxyl
Thyroxyl (Cytomel) is a trademark of the substance Liothyronine Sodium. This is not a steroid, and thyroid hormone. It is used for medical purposes for controlling thyroid insufficiency, obesity, metabolic disturbances and fatigue. This is a synthetically reproduced thyroid hormone T3. When being used, Thyroxyl increases metabolism of the patient resulting in faster absorption of proteins, fats and carbohydrates by the body's cells.
Bodybuilders have resorted to the drug when it is necessary to burn excess fat. Bodybuilders use Thyroxyl to gain increased lipolysis, i.e. accelerate the process of burning fat and weight loss. Most often athletes use Thyroxyl in preparation for the championship which helps them achieve extremely low fat content indications without the use of low-calorie diets. Athletes taking Thyroxyl in low doses talk about the best effect of simultaneously taken steroids due to extremely rapid exchange of proteins. Until recently, the athletes in bodybuilding took the drug for many months to a year to stay in shape. Those beauties that appear on the covers of magazines demonstrating their strong elastic body are well fed, and then burn calories by using Thyroxyl. Women in bodybuilding especially love this preparation. Since hypometabolism in women is mostly hereditary, it is difficult to achieve the scale necessary for today's competitive standards. Horrible dietary restrictions, calorie counting - all this can be avoided by taking Thyroxyl. Women are more prone to various side effects, but the drug is well tolerated at a dose of 50mcg day. Intermittent reception of Thyroxyl in a reasonable dosage is less harmful to health than low-calorie diet.
How to take Thyroxyl
When for the dosage, one should be careful because it is a very strong thyroid hormone. It is important to start with low doses and rise in a few days slowly and gradually. Most athletes begin with 25mcg per day and increase the dose every 3-4 days. 100 mcg doses over a day are undesirable. It is better to be taken in three intakes during the day. It should be noted that Thyroxyl should not be taken for more than 6 weeks. It is used up to 6 weeks followed by a two-month break. Those who take it in high doses and for a long time are at risk of getting sick of hypothyroidism. As a result, the athlete will be forced to taking thyroid medications for the rest of his life. Dosage at the end should be slowly and gradually declined. Abrupt discontinuation of the drug is unacceptable. If you are going to take Thyroxyl, you should first consult a doctor and find out whether you do not have hyperthyroidism.
