Dear Friend, Listen close because this article is going to reveal some little known, almost secret facts about thyroid hormone, the most over-looked piece of the fat burning puzzle even many pros have trouble putting together at show time. In fact, coming in "soft" is the number one fear of every bodybuilder who has ever carried his armor plated muscle on stage. Being called "smooth" is akin to someone "talken trash" about your mom... you just don't want to hear about it!
But thanks to ground breaking research on a new thyroid hormone stimulating compound called T-3, the fear of being "caught looking smooth" will completely vanish from your mind because T-3 takes the fat-burning process to a completely new level. Even well beyond standard thermogenics!!
However, before we go into more detail on how T-3 was scientifically formulated... you need to know more about the thyroid gland so you can understand how the thyroid hormones work.
The thyroid gland is one of many "endocrine glands" in the body whose primary function is secreting thyroid related hormones. The term hormone, in Greek actually means "to arouse"! For example: The hormones testosterone and growth hormone "arouse" muscle growth by rapidly increasing the protein turn-over rate, called protein synthesis. And as every hard-training bodybuilder knows, the more abundant these hormones are (within reasonable limits) the more "abundant" will be the results in muscle size.
Anyway, the thyroid gland's job is to secrete thyroid hormone. This in turn, causes an increase in cellular enzymes that control all cellular processes... which then has a direct correlation to the "rate" of your metabolism, or how fast you burn calories!
Simply put, the more thyroid hormone available the greater the cellular enzyme output... and the faster you'll burn fat. However, how much thyroid hormone you naturally secrete is genetic, which explains the rare "thyroid freak" who gets shredded eating 10,000 calories of junk a day, or on the opposite end of the scale, someone who gets fat just watching McDonald's TV commercials.
But here's where it gets a little scary! Because as you may know (although this is lesser known than the use of extreme anabolics) many pro and state level guys try to alter their genetics by taking prescription thyroid drugs to get shredded, and shredded they get!! 295 at 2.8% body fat is beyond freaky! But what's really beyond freaky is how bad they're going to look after all this synthetic thyroid hormone starts to permanently shut-down their natural thyroid function! They could indeed become the person who gets fat just watching TV commercials, due to blunted natural thyroid output!
But listen, thanks to T-3, bodybuilders can now experience vastly elevated thyroid hormone levels... but without any "shut down" of their natural production. That's because T-3 actually makes your thyroid gland produce more thyroid hormone on a continual basis. It works also because it has the unique ability to greatly activate iodine update, which is the chemical trigger in the body that releases massive amounts of natural thyroid hormone into the bloodstream.
And this is the secret to getting shredded beyond all belief ... the permanent speeding of your metabolic rate by naturally increasing your thyroid hormone output. But here's one for "scientific history books" because T-3 actually causes your thyroid gland to increase peripheral specific thyroid hormone turnover!! This is "your thyroid hormone T-4" and it's specifically "coded" to attach to your individual cellular receptor site to form T-3.
Synthetics, on the other hand, are "made for everyone" so to speak, and don't have as efficient receptor affinity. So even if synthetics didn't shut-down your own natural thyroid production and were completely safe... they still wouldn't be as good as T-3 simply because they don't produce DNA specific thyroid hormone turnover!!
Additionally, T3 increases UCP3 uncoupling protein, which can have profound effects on fat loss. In fat cells, uncoupling dramatically increases lipolysis. So by supplemental intake of T-3 one is able to control lipolysis through two different mechanisms: Thyroid Specific Turnover and Uncoupling in Fat Specific Mitochondria.
Now, you may be asking yourself, why don't I know more about thyroid hormone and its implications for dramatic fat loss? Two reasons: One, simply because up until the invention of T-3, the only thyroid compounds that really worked were drugs like Synthroid and Cytomel. And since supplement companies can't make money off prescription thyroid drugs, the information about it is deemed "economically un-viable" and takes a distant back-seat to articles on the powers of 1-testosterone and the ever increasing sophistication of new creatine drinks that rapidly replenish ATP levels.
But the other reason "thyroid manipulation" hasn't gotten its fair due in the "chemical arsenal press" is because bodybuilders have read an inordinate amount of articles about thermogenic compounds, and the famous ephedrine, caffeine, aspirin stack. This phenomenon was started all the way back in 1983 by a company called Jungle Gym Supplements in Spartanburg, S.C. Soon, other companies in the burgeoning supplement industry "knocked off" Jungle Gym's innovation then "kicked-off" the E/C/A stack craze that's lasted for 20 years.
Basically, most companies' researchers felt nothing could beat the E/C/A stack because it was actually shown in documented scientific studies to burn more fat than prescription amphetamines doctors prescribed to overweight women. So with so much "proof" of E/C/A's effectiveness, researchers didn't bother to look any further for anything else... they had found the "messiah" in terms of fat-burning.
But did they? Yes and no. Obviously the E/C/A combo has helped thousands get "cut" to a certain degree. But let me ask you (since you've probably used them at some point in time) have you ever been really contest cut before just using a thermogenic? Listen, just because you're the most cut-up guy at the office doesn't mean shit compared to being truly "contest cut"... a rare, rare, condition that's almost impossible to achieve without thyroid manipulation!
What all the E/C/A guys should have been doing all along was to stack a thyroid manipulator with it! And if you're one of the few bodybuilders who have ever successfully stacked the two, then you really know the true meaning of what being ripped is all about. The reason this dynamic duo shreds people so fast is because the metabolic rate is now being stimulated by two distinct pathways in the body... yes, a double fat-burning effect can be achieved.
Anyway, this article isn't about E/C/A, it's about thyroid manipulation with specific thyroid hormone turnover from T-3, the missing piece to the puzzle of getting disgustingly ripped without killing yourself dieting.
But here's the kicker. There's something else extra thyroid hormone can help "ignite" in addition to fat-loss, and that's muscle growth. That's right... thyroid hormone accelerates all processes, even protein synthesis!!
However, and this is an "important however", you must provide the body with plenty of the highest quality protein you can get your hands on! This is crucial because protein is what we are. Every muscle, bone, tendon, every cell is made of protein. And since thyroid hormone accelerates all processes it needs frequent infusions of raw materials (proteins) to keep up the building process. Because remember, at the same time a catabolic process of sorts is going, the breaking down of fat... which can shift over to the breakdown of muscle if you don't keep feeding the body lots of protein.
But once you do... look out man, because the dual action of burning fat with T-3 and building muscle with a high quality protein can transform you into a picture of yourself your mind hasn't even conceived yet. That's the power of T-3, the amazing new thyroid stimulator from S.A.N. that causes the natural turnover of DNA specific thyroid hormone for the most rapid fat-loss imaginable.
So if you didn't know the importance of thyroid hormone before you read this article... you do now! There are no more excuses not to be ripped to shreds because T-3 makes this once impossible dream become a real world occurrence no matter what your genetics.
