Glycobol and side effects?
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?

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 .

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.

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?

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.

If you continue to have problems, by all means, please discontinue taking the Glycobol.
If the problem then further persists, please see your doctor.

yeah thats what I did, took some time off and came back with a lower dose and things are fine nowAlot of the time it is too high of a dose that causes this. I find 1 cap twice a day is enough for me.

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'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

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.

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...

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.
