  2. Been thinking of adding this to my Dymethazine/Tren pct.

    PCT is currently nolva and lean xtreme.

    Would this aid in shredding me a bit more while keeping muscle mass?
    Product looks sick.

  3. It should lean you out while giving strength gains. It allows you to eat more carbs than you would without it...I don't think you can get fat on it honestly.

    Diet should be in check, utilize those carbs.

    This should work very well in your planned pct.
    Ask me for samples of the new RecoverPRO and Maniac. 3Z is coming July 1st Facebook for more info and maybe a great deal on it coming.

    Great.
    If it goes well I'll sure spread the word around. Sounds great.

The green color means it's getting expelled. Once stools resumes normal color (a week or two at the most I'd think), you know your liver is back in a healthy relationship with your gall bladder. If you do not get this side effect, it means your liver was already in good shape. Dark stools are not a concern for liver issues, it's very light stools that are cause for concern"

    That doesn't exactly mean it "cleans out the liver".

    I really don't see how increasing bile and bilirubin could possibly be a good thing.

    If you Google "Over production of bile" you will get many results describing symptoms of various liver diseases and conditions.


    "When the liver has broken down harmful substances, they are excreted into the bile or blood. Bile by-products enter the intestine and ultimately leave the body in the feces. Blood by-products are filtered out by the kidneys and leave the body in the form of urine."

    Thats from this,

    http://www.healthsystem.virginia.edu...t/liverant.cfm


    One of the main functions of the liver,

    "production of bile, which helps carry away waste and break down fats in the small intestine during digestion"

    So if Berberine over stimulates this production and increases the amount of bile how could that be a good thing?. Don't say - "well than it carries away more waste and breaks down fats better". More isn't a good thing in this situation.

    I'm not sure the body would be able to tell the difference if you had increased bile production and bilirubin from Berberine or from an actual problem in liver. Now if it doesn't know the difference its going to react the same way if there was an actual problem. That can't be good!.


    I may be biased. I had liver problems in the past.

  10. Dosing:
    Workout days: 2 caps per each large meal (50-100G CHO) Twice a day, 2 Pre-Workout.
    Non-Workout Days:1 cap twice a day (25-50G CHO), 2 caps an hour before bed.
    Pre Bed: 2 Caps Glycobol, 20G BCAA's.




    So am I getting this confused or was your dosing protocol on workout days .. 6 caps : 2 with each large meal + 2 Preworkout + 2 Bedtime = 6 caps? and non-workout days you were throwing down 4 pills: 1 (2x) throughout the days with carb meals and then 2 before bedtime =4 caps? I just bought a bottle and looking for dosing ideas . thanks

    If you are talking about Glycobol. I would only take 2 caps twice a day before a carb meal do not need 2 before bed. I would start slow if you have not used it before start with 1 cap twice a day before carb meals fow a few day if you are tolerating it well then go to 2 caps.
