    Well I cannot prove medically that ursobolic stimulates thyroid more. All I know is I have been on thyroid med for past 4 or 5 years and my tsh stays right around .97 WHile I started the urso I could tell levels were increasing due to the way I felt and go labs done and was down to .41 Quit urso and returned to .98

    That would explain why I feel warmer when I take it

    That's very interesting. I wonder if that will apply to non-medicated individuals as well. I'm glad it wasn't suppressive, too. Thanks for sharing!

  4. If the product improves thyroid levels, it will definitely need time to see results. Improved thyroid output does not burn more fat on its own, it just better enables you to burn fat when you are trying through diet and exercise. Higher levels on their own do nothing for you, you still have to work at it.

  5. I also noticed it takes about 3-4 days and it begins to raise my levels. I know if my levels are lower or higher based on how I feel, when high I feel very warm in face, slightly elevated bp and heart palps. Lower levels feel like crap and sleep a lot. When I began noticing the increase while on urso I went to dr to talk to him about it and he did labs to confirm it. I still use the product, just use different dosing methods

    I am on a cut right now and am on maintenance calories only, I've only lost a couple of pounds but I am leaning out nicely with out losing weight. I know a lot of people early on complained that they weren't losing weight. I don't really want to lose weight, I don't think anyone really does I want to lose fat and keep my muscle weight right where it is. From my experiences it appears that Ursobolic truly does what the university study showed, it prevents muscle wasting

  11. I'm not taking ursobolic per se, but its an ursolic acid supplement. I'm getting some real appetite suppressant from this, thought it first was my imagination, but after reading it and hearing that others noticed it too, just confirmed it.

    Maybe it's dose depended? I'm taking 6 caps of 600 mg, extract contains 160 mg ursolic acid.

    Arnold, if you feel that this post ain't ok, please delete it.. I'm in here to discuss the potential appetite suppression from ursolic acid.

    with that said, it seems logical that more frequent dosing of smaller amounts may be more advantageous than less frequent dosing of larger amounts. And, as truth mentioned, ingesting with fats is probably a key
    Patrick, taking this into account, would it be better to take 1-2 caps 6 times a day instead of the standard 3 caps 3 times a day or 1-2 caps is too low?

    Also, is your new urso version only a "more bioavailable" urso or have you discovered something new? the word you used "breakthrough" sounds very encouraging.
    I would not take "breakthrough" very serious if it came from jacob but coming from you it means serrious business.

    Please give us a hint of something after all, a lot of us are actual faithful consumers for years.

    I dont think the reports of appetite suppression from it are common enough to be of much meaning. I personally have had a fine appetite on the stuff for the most parts

    probably would be better

    I will pay for a bottle of it and give you honest feedback, and you can keep the profile to yourself. Urso is definitely not a wonder drug, nothing is, but based on my labs it is the only product thus far to increase thyroid activity. THat says a lot consider many of the products that claim to have never made any impact on my tsh levels. One response I got back on a product that was "thyroid" product that made no change in my thyroid was that "it works through different pathways". Well if it is suppose to convert into t3 or t4, maybe you would not have a change of tsh level but I would think t4 level or free t3 levels would change. I am just guessing.
    Anyways I know this has never been marketed as a thyroid product and no claims of it doing so have been made either. I am just sharing my own experience due to the fact that I have to have blood labs done on a regular basis.

    really the lipid profile improvements are almost more interesting to me than the fat loss.

    thats interesting you saw raised thryroid levels. i would like to see this duplicated a few times before i would contemplate a real connection though. You could be an anomaly

  18. Well, raised or lowered. My tsh level actually lowered, which is a good thing when you are hypo, which in turn results in higher metabolism when it come to weight loss

    you didnt measure thyroid hormones, just TSH?

    a lowered TSH could be indicative of a higher metabolism but it certainly isnt a cause of it.

    I know. I guess I should not speak so loosely to someone who knows so much

  22. Quote Originally Posted by Patrick Arnold View Post

    yes, did levels also. t3 t4 and free t3 I believe. I lost my copy and only remembered my tsh level is why I quoted it. When I go back I will have doc give me my print outs again

    maybe i should have given free bottles out to the typical ass kissers who could have fillled the pages with fake positive reviews.
    So much win here. Go to almost any forum and count the number of fully negative logs that are sponsored. Hell go through the 300 some odd pages of reviews and logs on this site. Count the sponsored logs/reviews. Now count the negative vs. the positive ones. Mind blowing how positive people are with free products.

    I have a list of supplements I think are pretty much garbage that I've used and friends have used. These are some of the most positive reviewed supplements around...including on this board but the trick is most of those reviews are all the initial log type people. Often its the SAME people who just jump from free supp to free supp to rain the praise on. It pays (in future free products) to be fake...yeah yeah I know even when everyone puts in the first paragraph "unbiased honest truth bro!"

    Simply spot on. I have no idea if Ursobolic works or not, I haven't used it. I do know that I "trust" sponsored logs and reviews about as much as I trust candidates for president.

  24. I review honestly. I got a very abrupt reply from the company owner last time I did it lol.

    I wasn't trying to say all reviewers are dishonest. Just the vast, vast, majority of them. Maybe dishonest isn't right...biased and have an incentive (got a free product and I owe you or future free product) to paint the product in as positive a light as possible.

  26. i get people messaging me asking if they can get some free product for logging. they send me links to other logs they do so i can see how good they are at logging.

    I am not stupid, I can read through the lines. They mean to say "if you send me free product i will give you a real positive review"

    I generally send them a nice message back but I let them know that i prefer not to have to pay for positive reviews, and that i trust my products will stand on their own merit

    I have started taking 2 caps at each meal instead of only 2 or 3 doses. This to me seems to be working better but it may be my imagination.

    I shall continue to take it though due to all the health benefits.

  28. Ursobolic worked well for keeping my fat off during the holiday season.
    It also seemed to improve my digestion a little bit as well.
    Stacked with Slin-Sane or C-20 it seems to work even better.

    I think a lot of people expect PH/AAS/ECA type gains off this stuff.
    And that is expecting too much.
    It is a supplement which means it is something to add a little extra to training and diet.
    And Ursobolic did work in that capacity.

    And yes these prodcts are marketed strongly but what is not.
    I mean that is like thinking that AXE is actually going to automatically cause one to be showered with a bevy of gorgeous women.

    And I have NEVER received any free supplements from anyone except samples that NP might send out with orders.

    Can you give a tentative release date for your new formulation?
    Ursolic acid is kind of a staple for me now so I will be looking forward to it.
    Got my ultimate stay lean all year mix going on.

    I wish I could have afforded it over the holidays as I accumulated copious amounts of fat which through the aid of ursobolic I am losing just not as quickly as I'd hoped. I won't be without it again, I'll cut out my starbucks instead..... and are you saying that if use AXE women are not going to be clamoring for me????? Really?? in all seriousness AXE? Phew!!
