t3 and t4 absorbtion
I've been told the standard info about t3 and t4 half life-- that t3 is about 8 hours and t4 is about a week.
But yesterday I took a lot more t4 and very little t3 to see what it felt like and I swear the t4 was hyping me up by the end of the day. I could feel it. My heart was beating faster. I had trouble going to sleep. How could this be if t4 has a half life of a week?
And IMO, the big difference t3 and t4 act differently on the body. One huge diffrence is are the emotions. T3 seems to turn on the emotions --the happiness, the passion, the adrenaline responses etc. t4 just made me feel like a wound up robot. But I tried it because I wanted to see if I could get some of that t3 volatility out of the picture. I wanted to see if I could get my body to convert what it needed.
My point is that irrespective of what "they" say about half life, I'm positive that I can feel changes in significant doses of either t3 or t4 the very same day.
Does anyone else agree?
