Cytomel is a thyroid hormone which has been artificially produced. There is no difference in performance between the natural hormone and the artificially synthesized one. Cytomel is the synthesis version of triiodothyronine, which is naturally produced by the conversion of the thyroxine hormone into the triiodothyronine hormone. Cytomel increases the level of adenosine triphosphate in the body and this means that the body will have more energy for the performance of the day to day activities that will keep the body running. The increase in ATP means the increase in the level of metabolism, which means more energy for the body.
The increase in metabolism has many advantages. First, your heart will be beating at a much faster rate than normal. This means that you will be burning more energy and more fat will be replaced by muscles in the body. Even if the numbers on the scale do not change, the physique of your body will have changed when the fat will be lost and replaced by muscle weight. You will change your BMR and if you were being endangered by the amount of fat in the body, you will reduce it to an acceptable level. Two, you will have increased the level of protein synthesis. Did you know that your muscles are made of proteins? You need proteins in your diet and you need to increase the level of protein synthesis in the body to make a difference in the size of the muscles of your body. Increased protein synthesis will mean the increase in the mass of the muscles on your body. You need to maintain the level of protein synthesis reasonable as too much of Cytomel in the body could lead to negative results. You must increase the intake of protein if you have increased the use of Cytomel since you need protein that will be synthesized.
Cytomel increases the level of growth hormones as well; which provides another platform for Cytomel to work. When you are through with Cytomel, you can leave it without weaning yourself off it and this is also an advantage. The body will take some time to start producing its own hormones in the absence of the artificial production but that is not a problem. The side effects of using Cytomel for a long time include high blood pressure and hair loss as well as insomnia due to an over active thyroid gland
