Wanna use GLYCOBOL but confused
I feel like im stuck here guys.
I wanna use GLYCOBL but im confused as to how apply an Insulin mimicker to a low carb (sometimes very low >30 grams a day, with 1 carb up a week) cutting phase.
Please help me and explain the science behind it.
Also I have a bottle of Stoked, how would you stack the two? (timing doses)
Thanks so much

The big factor that one may realize is that glycobol is a nutrient partritioner which means it feeds your muscle and blocks glucose from storing in ones adipose tissue through GLUT-4 translocation. Carbs allow for glycogen build-up, a couple of the ingredients in glycobol allow for one to maximize their glycogen storage as well as glycogen resynthesis through glycongenious. What makes glycbol special is if one takes in less than 35g of carbs after dosing glycobol, its very probable and likely to stay in ketosis. BMOV is great stuff, it allows ones muscle to stay pumped, its half life is about 24 hours, so its very easy to feel hard all day. This is another reason why Stoked and glycobol stack well, icarrin which is found in Stoked; is a PDE-5 blocker, so it allows for better blood flow and nitric oxide production. Thus allowing for MORE pumps and vascularity. Nutrient partritioners allow one to keep a better lipid profile, glycobol contains Na-R-ALA; which time after time has been proven to be a potent anti-oxidant; 21 times more bio-available than ALA. Pm me, if you want more.doing my own thang!

I usually just take 2 caps in the AM and 2 caps PM with the Stoked. As for the Glycobol we are finding out that everyone is different and people find a best way for them by experimenting with the dosages.

Nice explanation andrew! I would take 1 glycobol every4 hrs regaurdless. It'll help with glycogen synthesis even on low carbs. It'll increase glucagon gh and lipolysis. U can even take 2 spread out 1 with first meal 1 with 4th meal and 2 pre bed. As far as carb ups I usually take on gbol per every 40g carbs but no more then 2 in 3 hours!

I have a question
MY wife started using glycobol for recomping. I would like to use it as well but lil broke right now lol. We both train in a fasted state @ 5:30 am while sipping on bcaas so when could she dose her glycobol? She is stsacking it with slim xtreme if that makes any difference?????

regular ALA may result in a greater amount of liver glycogen storage and may even result in more fat storage than intended
VS can decrease blood glucose while increasing glycogen storage. Some evidence states that vanadium can stimulate an insulin release

The one thing about glycobol i have to say i DONT like is the BMOV, id rather Vanadyl sulfat in my partioners bc its excreted more readily and isnt absorbed as much into vanadium sensitive tissues like the kiney bone ect.
With glycobol 1 cap per meal. even on low carb is fine. no worries there, youll burn off fat.

but if your in ketosis most likely the amino acids will go into the amino acid pool and ketones and triglycerides will be used for energy during your lifts. Very little amounts of BCAAs will be used.

You are 100 percent correct, I actually tell people NOW that when you take a product that contains bebberine such as Glycobol or AP, to take it preferably on a lower carb intake, products like Need2Slin or SlinSlane would be more appropriate for higher carb meals. I applaud you for doing your own research, something that people should learn to do themselves rather than having info be spoon fed to them.

need to slin is hardly a repartitioner. Is it good.. im sure it is. But its not a true mimetic. it works via a different pathway to stimulate the responce which frankly you can get cheaper single ingredients and add to a different partioner and have much better results.
Of course i research, just because im new doesnt mean anything. People see newbies on here, and they sometime bash them for not knowing anything.

Indeed bebberine has shown to do that but I came across a study which showed it being most effective with carb intake of 25mgs which is LOW for a guy like me.

bump for the study from andrew.
ive done EXTENSIVE research on berberine. carb amounts were never taken into acount.
ive seen it taken into account with other ingredients such as salacia. but not berberine
