Thyro-T2 is a synthetic thyroid hormone which may be even better than our own natural T3 for fat loss. T2 functions very similar to T3, but unlike T3 it does not burn muscle while it is burning fat. T2 also converts slow-twitch fibers to fast-twitch fibers, allowing “endurance” fibers to convert to “strength” fibers. This means it permanently makes your ability to get stronger while still burning fat increase!
How Does T2 Work?
The thyroid is a very important hormonal gland which plays an equally important part in your body’s metabolism and growth. Natural thyroid hormones come in two forms: T4, the inactive stable prohormone and T3 the active short lived metabolite of T4. T3 and T4 are responsible for increasing your basal metabolic rate. When your body is not producing enough T3 and T4, your metabolism may slow and you may see your body adding on those extra pounds even though you may be “working your butt off” in the gym! The thyroid is the thermostat of the body, and regulates the speed of all metabolic processes in almost every cell in your body. It also helps regulate how the calories in the food you eat are used – either for energy, or stored as fat. T2 also helps with how much energy you have (or don’t have!). As you can see, T2 is a VERY important thyroid hormone to have and it can have a very significant impact on how your body functions!
