Heard: Has a break through been made? Published reports 1, 2, 3 show scientists have made strides to benefit athletes and non-athletes alike.
Whispers of a revolutionary new fat burner have started to circulate, spawning rumors that getting shredded will now be easier than ever. But with the inundation of fat burners hitting the market over the last five years among numerous claims of increased ability and potency, will this really impact the way we see fat loss supplements? Read on to find out.
Sources say that an undisclosed company is currently in the development phase of a new fat loss supplement that contains a naturally occurring thyroid supplement in the form of 3,5 T2. This compound is proven in scientific studies to help increase metabolic rate and overall calorie burn at rest and enhance mitochondrial function 1. Most current fat burners rely heavily on stimulants to produce the desired effect, but this product, code name: Fit Throid, acts as a thyroid hormone mimetic, meaning that it produces similar effects to that of thyroid hormone.
The thyroid is primarily responsible for regulating metabolism, and higher levels of thyroid hormone are associated with increased thermogenesis (conversion of calories to heat for energy) and fat loss 2. Although Fit Throid is primarily seen as a fat loss aid for those looking to lean out, in theory, increased levels of thyroid hormone may also allow a person who is consuming a higher level of calories (bulking) to stay leaner, possibly making this a viable option for those looking to gain muscle mass without excessive amounts of fat. Due to its unique nature, Fit Throid may either be stacked with another fat burner, or taken on its own.
Furthermore, a study has also linked 3,5 T2 to activation of brown fat cells, distinguished from normal fat cells by their thermogenic capacity 3). This means that, like muscle tissue, brown fat burns calories at rest, but must typically be activated first. The study found that 3,5 T2 is able to activate this thermogenic process, a feat that no current fat burner has been able to accomplish so far.
