Thyrox T-3 from Absolute Nutrition is a high-powered fat burner that doesn't employ ephedrine, ephedrine analogs or caffeine. Instead, Thyrox T-3 works by stimulating your thyroid rather than your nervous system.Thyrox T-3 is an excellent choice for people sensitive to stimulants, concerned with a wired feeling, drug tests, or who want an extra kick to a caffeine-ephedrine stack like Xenadrine. However, it should not be used with products like Thermonol XS which also has thyroid stimulants (guggulsterones, forskolin) in it.

Guggulsterones are the main ingredient in Thryox T-3. Studies have shown guggulsterones to have thyroid stimulating activity. They increase the rate of conversion of T-4 (thyroxine), the lower activity thryoid hormone, to T-3, the higher activity hormone. This causes an increase in basal metabolic rate (BMR), which are the number of calories one burns at rest. Guggelsterones not only decrease body fat, but they cause the liver to metabolize (thus lowering) LDL cholesterol (the "bad" cholesterol) and lower blood triglyceride levels while raising HDL cholesterol. It may be effective in the treatment of atherosclerosis (the buildup of plaque in veins and arteries, resulting in heart disease or peripheral vascular disease), as well as acne.

L-tyrosine is used by the thyroid gland for the production of T-4 (thyroxine), a hormone that causes an increase in the rate of carbohydrate metabolism and a rise in the rate of protein synthesis and breakdown. T-4 converts to T-3, which is even more effective. L-tyrosine is a precursor to stimulatory neurotransmitters epinepherine, norepinephrine, and dopamine, which support thryoid output. Through neurotransmitter activity, L-tyrosine contributes to appetite suppression. Research shows that L-tyrosine enhances performance, improves vigor, decreases fatigue, diminishes confusion, and decreases tension and anxiety.

Garcinia cambogia is the source of hydroxycitric acid (HCA) which blocks an enyzyme that turns starch carbohydrates to glucose, thereby preventing glucose from being stored as body fat.

Phosphatidylcholine emulsifies and breaks down fat deposits in the body.

This product also contains various phosphates, which can prevent a decrease in T-3 activity and provide extra energy by increasing the basal metabolic rate.

Two capsules contain gum guggul extract 300 mg. (20 mg. guggulsterones), L-tyrosine 300 mg., garcinia cambogia 250 mg., phosphatidylcholine 25 mg., calcium phosphate 250 mg., dipotassium phosphate 150 mg., sodium phosphate 75 mg., disodium phospate 75 mg.

Recommended use: 2 capsules once or twice daily between meals.
