    It will upregulate protein synthisis and also keep fat down while bulking. So yes it will help in the bulking process in allowing you to eat more protein and utilize it.

    You can use 12.5 mcg without shutting down thyroid functions and not get the rebound effect after stopping the T3.

    Yes I like using T3 while bulking or cutting so I can utilze all the protein and yes 12.5 is best because even at 25mcgs you can shutdown thyroid functions a bit.

    The average adult male produces around 26mcg of T3 per day, if you take 25mcg you shut down your endogenous production and replace it with a dose similar to that of your natural level.

    MudMan - do you have any proof that 12.5 won't shut you down? I'd be interested in using small doses regularly if this is true

    You answered your own question........... a healthy thyroid will produce around 26mcg dail of T3........... the body will adapt to maintain a natural level of T3 in the bloodstream. Your thyroid will shut down as a result of increased levels of T3. So at 12.5 mcg ED the thyroid will most likely not become suppressed. The longest I would run t3 is 4 to 5 weeks anything longer will suppress the thyroid. Also use coleus forskolii to help thyroid function.

    you could also run a few thyroid support supplements just to keep your natural production nice and high while on the 12.5mcg. A few things might be t-100x, bladderwrack, coleus, etc. Personally i will be using the t-100 and bladderwrack. Also stay high in trace minerals like selenium, zinc and copper as it will aid in the coversion to t3 from t4. If you do this and supplement with 12.5mcg you should maintain your current t3 levels, if not increasing them slightly!

    Am I missing something here? - Why take 12.5mcg if the body will just adjust its own production so that resultant levels of T3 are still only the 26mcg that your thyroid would produce on its own?

    I think that what they are trying to say is that if you only run 12.5mcg of t3 a day, it wont effect the natural 26mcg that you naturally produce.

    Yeah I get that part, but in Mudmans post he says that the body will adapt to keep a natural level of T3 in the bloodstream - so you're back where you started!

    in that case it doesn't matter how big dose I use. If it shuts me down even if i take 12.5 mcg than I could go with 25mcg or even 50??
