  1. Glycobol and side effects?


    Hi all,

    I have just started gycobol with half a cap 5 minutes before breakfast that contains more than 50g of complex carbs and I am starting to experience shortness of breath. I tend to be very sensitive to supplements that work :-)

    Does anyone already experience this? then did it stop or should I better discontinue it?


  2. well never had sob(dyspnea), and i have moderate asthma which is a 9/10 on the severity scale, but glycobol does make my metabolism sky rockett and with that it gives me bad gas and i have 2-3 bowel movements a day that are green .

    If you are having shortness of breath please stop. I have not heard of this problem but it is not something to play with.

    The green stool is normal it is the Berberine.

    I would be interested to know also. Maybe broke it open and added it to a shake?

  7. I love glycobol

  8. I have just opened it and remove a part of it and then close it. I wonder if it could have been an interaction with green tea as I stopped it and today it seems ok.

  9. and just to be clear, you were taking the half cap 5 minutes before breakfast and got the shortness of breath before you started eating? or was it after eating?

    after, let say few hours after... it was not strong and I have seen that some one else reported the same in another forum but he said that it did not last over time.

  11. First week I took it gave me some bad green diarrhea, stopped taking it for a week then started back at lower dose and no problems. Urine smells terrible though.

  12. If you continue to have problems, by all means, please discontinue taking the Glycobol.

    If the problem then further persists, please see your doctor.

    Alot of the time it is too high of a dose that causes this. I find 1 cap twice a day is enough for me.

    yeah thats what I did, took some time off and came back with a lower dose and things are fine now

  15. It's odd how things work differently for many people. I believe Don is a lot bigger than I am at almost 5'8/180 lbs, yet I can take four a day and not have any stomach issues.

    i can handle 4 a day if i take 1 at a time instead of 2 and im 240lbs

  17. I've played with my Glycobol meals a lot. For me, I make sure not to consume very much fat with my Glycobol meals. This seems to do the trick. I also base the number of capsules I take depending on the amount of CHO I will be consuming. The fat intake seems to be key for me though. I'm not sure why this is, I just know it works

  18. I control fat intake as well when taking Glycobol. When I take four per day gas seems to be pretty bad. Two a day seems to clear this up.

    Very true. Glycobol dosage can vary so much from person to person.

  20. I took some this morning thinking that I was going to have a late pancake brunch. We ended up eating at a local/authentic Mexican restaurant...

    LMAO!!!

  25. 1 cap for either breakfast or lunch, and 1 fasted before bed worked great for me. Most days it was 2, but some days I'd do 3. Pre-bed was an awesome way to effortlessly lose weight ,and get some decent sleep.

    how would dosing glycobol before bed cause fatloss and induce sleep? can you explain the science behind it and how it works for this?

    I read somewhere where Dr. D recommend dosing glycobol before and hgh release like Hghpro.

    I never understood it though as glycobol lowers blood sugar levels

    Deep sleep increases GH release, and low blood sugar compounds that release even more. After years of supps and training, I can discern increased somatotropin biosynthesis by a distinct leaning effect. You develop a certain look of lean striation. I see lots of guys here use synthetic GH for bulking, but it seems more appropriate for leaning and 'anti-aging' effects IME. There are many ways to boost GH naturally. Deep sleep + low blood sugar + hyperaminoacidemia is a consistent, cheap and simple way to do this.

    - Stop eating carbs at least 2hrs before bed
    - Take 1-2 gbols
    - Take a scoop of EAA or BCAA or protein powder, or some Mucuna (l-dopa), or an arginine based stack, or whatever you normally use to promote GH levels.


    It's that simple. You'll start noticing what I mean pretty quickly. You lose fat, your cheeks might start to look leaner, your skin might feel a bit different, your arms/shoulders show more detailed striation, you 'feel' better in general, your wounds heal faster (but leave a little more scar tissue than normal), stuff like that. After a few weeks, it's easy for most people to observe these effects if their natural GH boosting has been successful.
    Glycobol is only part of the equation.

    Beat me to it buddy!!

  29. Meant for my post to also contain the post from Dr. D, sorry about that. Caught me in a haze going to work.

    question about glybocol at bedtime..can you take it with HGHpro...was curious because HGHpro sais no food 30-60 minutes prior and the Glycobol would require protein or something to help induce
