T3 Cytomel, a brand of Liothyronine sodium tablets, is a synthetic form of a natural thyroid hormone available as sodium salt.
Thyroid hormones enhance oxygen consumption by most tissues in the body. They increase metabolic rate and the rate of metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins. These hormones have a profound influence on every organ in the body and are of particular importance in the development of the central nervous system.
T3 Cytomel is a thyroid hormone drug fairly commonly used for fat loss in anabolic steroid cycles. It is naturally produced in the body as a result of T4 (thyroxine) production by the thyroid.
Oral administration of T3 can yield higher levels of serum T3 than it would occur naturally. This allows a faster fat loss and in some cases potentially greater GH production and greater anabolism.
Common side effects of T3 Cytomel include nausea.
In rare cases, temporary hair loss may occur during the first few months of taking Cytomel.
