    Saw Palmetto bad on cycle? WTF


    I was reading this other thread about pct and it was brought up that Saw Palmetto is bad to use on cycle or at all since it might be hurtful to gains for certain compounds? im using cycle support on my next run. what the word on all this?

    Very controversial, I would say do not abuse it while on any androgen that is a DHT derived compound, such as 5a reduced compounds, a little will not hurt.

    This information was specific to The ONE. If you are doing a cycle of The ONE then you should avoid Saw Palmetto, yes, and ensure that you have stopped using all products containing it at least two weeks prior to starting your cycle.

    As far as other PHs and hormonals concerned, Saw Palmetto should be fine. However, always check with the manufacturers of any product that you wish to use for anything that you are unsure of re effects and interactions.

    It's not specific to any compound, but it is advised for any compound that is highly androgenic. As already mentioned, 5a reduced compounds can cause prostatitis. The One and 1-Test (old school version) caused this to me after about 3 weeks of use.

    Run the Cycle Support and use the Mass FX in 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.

    So are you saying it could be a bad idea to use Cycle Support if someone were to say go on a 1-T / 4-AD cycle w/ a 2week M1T kickstart?

    You really need to have proper supports for that cycle no questions asked that could be a killer on BP

    you should take saw palmetto with any steriod that can convert into DHT. This stuff is going to protect your prostate theoretically. At worst, it wont work, and at best it should reduce dht to some degree. And you want that. What more important, some muscle, or perhaps prostrate pain or possibly i would even say a greater increased risk of getting prostrate cancer.

    Oh yes absolutely I understand support supplements would be needed for that cycle (I have used support supps every time I've touched a ph)

    I think I have had a slight brain lapse as I was reading rodja's post as meaning that using cycle support w/ 1t caused him prostatitis..

    I wouldn't do either. Mass FX should be no where near PCT.

    You want to restart you HPTA as quickly and efficacious as possible. You do not want to inhibit SHBG, and certainly do not want to increase AR agonists (ie. freeT, iicarrin, cnidium, DIM to name a few).

    Interesting.

    I actually used It in my PCT for 3AD, awhile back. That's why I asked. I kept most of my gains.

    I know people who have not done a PCT at all and kept gains too(and I think we know better). There is more to it than that.

    The people who do no pct and get away with it are very lucky indeed.
