Some people go to real extremes to boost thyroid metabolism Thyroid T-3 is an all-natural, pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplement from Absolute Nutrition. It is specially formulated to burn fat fast. The active ingredients in Thyrox T-3 increase the rate of conversion of T-4, the low activity hormone, to T-3, the high activity hormone. This causes an increase in basal metabolic rate, or BMR, which are the number of calories one burn at rest. This is accomplished without the use of stimulants but with drug-like potency.
The main ingredient, Gum Guggul Extract, delivers a powerful 300 mg of guggulsterone per dosage. Studies have shown guggulsterone to have thyroid-stimulating activity, whereby there is an increase in the conversion of T-4 to T-3. Subjects showed not only a decrease in body fat but lower cholesterol and blood triglyceride levels as well.
Thyroid T-3 also contains phosphates, which are found in high-energy compounds such as ATP and phosphocreatine. Thyroid activity is directly related to the amount of energy one possesses, thus it is important to ingest ample amounts of phosphates daily. Studies have shown that phosphates can prevent a decrease in T-3 and increase BMR. Furthermore, phosphates have a positive effect on creatine storage, buffering lactic acid, and increasing ATP.
L-Tyrosine, an amino acid found in Thyroid T-3, is used by the thyroid gland for the production of Thyroxine, a vital hormone involved in regulating growth, metabolism, skin health, and mental state. In fact, low levels of L-Tyrosine have been associated with hypothyroidism and will trigger a deficiency of the hormone norepinephrine at a specific brain location, which will result in depression and mood disorders.
Thyroid T-3 contains Phosphatidyl Choline, which emulsifies and breaks down fat deposits in the body, which is helpful in the prevention of arteriosclerosis, heart disease, gallstones, and liver problems.
