T3 and its extreme potent fat-loss enhancing qualities!
Triiodothyronine (T3) is one of many active hormones in the mammalian body. T3 is in a class of hormones known as "thyroid hormones". There are 2 types of thyroid hormones found in the body, one is T3 and the other is thyroxine (T4). Both T3 and T4 are secreted by the thyroid gland, but T3 is considered to be the most active form for research into the enhancing fat-loss effects seen with thyroid hormones. T3 makes up about 80% of the body's naturally found thyroid hormones and is converted from T4 by an enzyme called deiodinase.
T3 is a very important hormone as it plays a major role in many physiological processes in the body. Some of these include; metabolism, growth and development, body temperature and lipolysis, that?s just to name a few.
T3 is nothing new; some of its effects have been researched and known for over 100 years. Yet with T3, researchers are still finding out new things about it even in more recent research. T3 really is an interesting compound to work with. Over 70 years has passed since research has shown T3 to have extremely effective fat-loss enhancing qualities. Yet some of these enhancing qualities are not fully understood.
Even though some of T3's actions are not fully understood, the current results in research are still very promising. Sadly even with clinical studies having shown that the administration of T3 can greatly induce fat-loss, it is not currently indicated as a fat-loss compound for treatment of obesity in cases where thyroid function is found to be normal. T3's main official use of research is for the treatment of thyroid dysfunction and it is also being studied and used for treatment of depression along with other drugs commonly used in this field such as SSRI's.
Thyroid disorders negatively affect metabolism and body composition, leading to a higher amount of body fat and a lower amount of muscle mass. These are not the only issues with thyroid dysfunction, other issues can be found such as higher leptin concentrations in the blood and body which has led to research findings showing a common relation in subjects with acute myocardial infarctions (heart attack) and dysfunctionally low thyroid hormone levels. As if that was not bad enough it has also been found that low levels of T3 can contribute to hypertension, cognitive impairment, infertility, dyslipidemia, and muscular dysfunction.
T3 levels are obviously very important to watch and study. Something else to make not in T3 research is that females (in my opinion) are at a greater risk for being miss-diagnosed with menopause that may have thyroid dysfunction.
Why would female subjects be at a higher risk at miss-diagnoses over men you ask?
Well sadly the symptoms of thyroid dysfunction have been shown to be very similar to menopausal symptoms and this warrants great caution into the diagnoses of thyroid dysfunction or menopause and further research into distinguishing them apart.
I feel the most promising and extreme effects found in T3 research are the greatly enhanced fat-loss that can be seen in administration of this great compound in research. This is one of the most rewarding qualities of T3 research, opening many doors to further research of its many functions and benefits!
I am happy to be able to offer you only the highest quality T3 for all your research needs.
