    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?

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

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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

    I personally don't take Glycobol before bed other do on a empty stomach. I suggest taking the Glycobol twice a day 15-30 minutes before a meal with at least 50g of carb. The HGHpro about 45 minutes before bed on a empty stomach.

    I would take the Glycobol at the same time as the HGH Pro, that's my opinion. I had Glycobol with: Somnidren GH/ZMK/Nocturnabol and arginine/ornithine all pre-bed and about 1-2 hours after last meal/shake. I have also taken Glycobol solo like this as well. Good luck!!

    I haven'tried HGHpro with Glycobol at nite yet. If I do, I'll likely use it with some RecoverPRO upon it's return to store shelves...I'm not sure which flavor I'll use though

    I'm glad to see that you're willing to play with your dosing scheme. I do this with a lot of my supps, especially if I'm stacking synergistic products.

    Agreed. Every body is different to a degree. 1 cap at dosing for me was fine. I'm all for the least amount to get desired results. I always awoke ravenous when dosing it pre-bed, but that was a good thing, as I awoke the same way on supps geared towards Gh release. Stacking it with those only intensified it. Really worked out well for me to cut some pudge easily. I'll be doing it again here in about 3 months.

    I would stay with the 1 as you definitely are getting benefits at that level.

    I really like doing 1 Glycobol, some recoverPRO and 3 HGHpro.

    BAM knockout for me about 30 mins later.

    Next day feel and look tighter even if I only get 6 hours.
