This Post is also available in: German

Liothyronine (LT3, T3) is often used in bodybuilding to support diets (mostly when preparing for a competition). Liothyronine is formed in the body of levothyroxine (LT4, T4). The effect of Liothyronine is to regulate the burning of fats, carbohydrates and proteins.
So Liothyroninee burns energies of any kind. For bodybuilders, it is a double-edged sword, because not only the fats are burned but also the valuable carbohydrates and proteins are burned. Thus, if one would take liothyronine, he should be expecting a loss of muscle mass.

At this point, the main application for the thyroid hormone liothyronine (T3) is clear: an increase of calorie consumption and fat burning as part of a diet or when preparing for a competition.

The use of thyroid hormone Liothyronine (T3) in the context of a reduced calorie diet is mandatory, such that it is has a particular catabolic effect on all thyroid hormones and Liothyronine.
The mitochondria moves to elevated levels of thyroid hormone Liothyronine (T3) in equal measure of fat, carbohydrates and protein for energy used, which can lead to a significant loss of muscle.
In addition to its use in the diet, the thyroid hormone liothyronine (T3) is used in conjunction with anabolic steroids which also to support muscle growth.
Liothyronine (T3) stimulates the protein metabolism, which can lead to increased protein synthesis and faster muscle growth.
