Zentec CytomelCommonly just called T3, Cytomel is not an anabolic/androgenic steroid but a thyroid hormone. Used in conjunction with diet and training it’s very commonly used for fat loss and is also noted in some cases to increase GH production. It’s synthetic compound called liothyronine sodium which resembles the natural thyroid hormone tricodide-thyronine (L-T3).
The thyroid of a healthy person usually produces two hormones, the better known L-thyroxine and the aforementioned L-triiodine-thyronine. Since Cytomel is the synthetic equivalent of the latter hormone, it causes the same processes in the body as if the thyroid were to produce more of the hormone. It is interesting to note that L-T3 is clearly the stronger and more effective of these two hormones.
