THYRO3 (Liothyronine) is used to treat hypothyroidism caused by insufficient production of the triiodothyronine hormone. Triiodothyronine is known as T3 and often called the true hormone. It has a significant effect on most physiological processes in the body including metabolism, body temperature, growth and development, and heart rate. It is about four times more potent than thyroxine which is it’s pro-hormone known as T4.
Hypothyroidism can lead to loss of energy, weight gain, changes in the skin texture and hair loss.
THYRO3 (Liothyronine) is naturally produced by the thyroid gland while Liothyronine sodium tablets are synthetically derived. Organically produced T3 and T4, made from animals, have been used since the late 1800s and were not replaced until 1956 when a stable pharmaceutical version was approved by the FDA under the brand name Cytomel T3.
T3 is used off label by athletes and bodybuilders for weight loss during anabolic steroid cycles. Cytomel T3 is not a steroid but rather used in combination with steroid cycles.
Leo Chemist offers Thyro 3 (Liothyronine Sodium 25mcg) tablets from Alpha-Pharma Healthcare. Thyro3 is a generic brand of Cytomel T3. It is known for its quality and exact dosage. This is extremely important since T3 has a low stability in general and accurate potency is crucial for correct usage. Liquid formulations should be avoided as they are unstable and lose potency fast.
We strongly recommend that you buy a brand that you know and trust, whether you choose to buy Cytomel T3, Thyro3 or another generic liothyronine brand from an online pharmacy or a brick and mortar pharmacy.
