RT3 then is inhibiting the increase in metabolism or the calorigenic effect of thyroid hormone.
In animal studies, it was observed that the effect of caffeine was partly due to endogenous catecholamine release and partly to the intrinsic calorigenic mechanism4.
34) Reports have indicated that thyroid hormones exert their positive calorigenic actions and augmented oxygen demands by increasing the activity and the numbers of the mitochondria in tissues like skeletal muscle, heart, kidney, and liver.
Metabolic aspects of the calorigenic effect of thyroid hormone in mammals.
1) T3 exerts significant action on energy metabolism, with the mitochondria being the major target for its calorigenic (increasing production of energy/heat and oxygen consumption) effects.
This increase can be correlated to the calorigenic effect induced by the food in the digestive gland.
