What is Your ORAC value?--Hint inside

Page 7 of 8 First ... 5678 Last

  1. I'd still like to try it either way.


  2. In all reality if I wasn't broke I would be brave enough to try it without some feedback. I don't make a lot at the moment so my supplements chosen tend to have good reviews.

    If you end up with the product Easy you should log it! I have enjoyed the logs you put on here.

  3. I perpetually log. I do it for myself as much as for anything else. If I want to know what I weiged in july, and how much progress I made in the last 6 months, I can just hunt thru threads I started to see. Plus I can see progress on specific exercises. I think thats really important for everyone in the long term, having a way to track progress.

    As far as being necessary goes I was merely mentioning my point of view. According to your logic your reply and swole210's reply isn't warrented either. Because you believe something different than the mentioned does not entail that the mentioned isn't important. Just a matter of opinion my man.
    no its alrite yea srry if i came off in a bad way...i tried to say i can see from your point of view about hype being unwarranted, or i tried to but i had just gotten up...its all good though man i was just confused if you were talking about recreate or melting point being stopped after a couple a days...but moving on lol

    I see your point of view. I t is a valid point, and one to use for your own jusdgement which is a good thing, but noe need to start imposing that the product is bunk, it is all hype, and that everyone on this thread is.........a monkey?! No bad blood here, as I am not trying to start anything or get on anyones bad side. Just saying that one can ask honest and legit questions about something(as we should!), and keep the pessimistic assumptions and bashing/name calling out of it. -The End-

    Compound 1 New to the industry mechanism of action:

    Again, a very precise extract of this substance has been shown to inhibit the enzyme 11-B-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1, both selectively and very potently (4). In addition, it was shown to do so in muscle and adipose cells. Why is this good? 11beta-HSD1 is an enzyme responsible for converting the very weak glucocorticoid, cortisone, into the much more powerful, cortisol. We all know that excess cortisol can hamper your progress in the gym, and with the stress of living in our modern world, itís certain that few people donít have elevated cortisol levels. Unfortunately, this particular enzyme works against what we all as athletes and bodybuilders would like and works to increase cortisol levels. In addition, another sad bit of news is that activity of this enzyme only seems to increase as we get older (5).
    By inhibiting 11beta-HSD1, it is thought that it could be used to treat obesity (reduce body fat) and improve insulin sensitivity. Additionally, a beneficial effect upon muscle mass would be expected (6).

    Compound 2 New to the industry mechanism of action:

    A compound found in a certain cactus plant, has a structural similarity to norepinephrine. It has both alpha and beta-adrenergic activity (9). Additionally, it directly stimulates postsynaptic receptors while enhancing the physiological effects of norepinephrine via increasing synthesis of it and inhibiting itsí reabsorption. The end result is a stimulant effect similar to ephedrine, without the ďall over the placeĒ behavior. In fact, it produces a great deal of focus.

    Compound 3
    Forskolin

    Compound 4
    Caffeine

    So is compound 2 the anti-ox? Any guesses to what compounds 1 or 2 are?
    My guess is yes, 2 is the anti-ox we are trying to guess. I think 1 is a good GA extract of licorice.

    I knew someone had guessed it, I had just never seen the study.

  11. I think the glycc isn't selective for 11b but does both 11a and 11b.

    Right, but not every company uses the same quality of vitamin E nevertheless, the highest quality of vitamin E, no?

    Of course not and natural vitamin E is better than synthetic but that's not really my point, it was just an example.

  14. Oh ok, sorry about that. I understand your point now.

    I'm not saying they won't deliver on their claims but only the future will tell. These seem like pretty big claims. The last time I saw this much excitement was DS's Melting Point. Which turned out to be an average supplement. I think I will wait for a completed log as people have had this supp for awhile now and everyone seems to quit taking it after a few days. One would think that some beta testing feedback would be circulating by now considering the estimated release date is 2-3 weeks away according to Jacob.

    I have to hand it to USP considering the lack of user feedback and hype you've created.
    You know by responding you are participating in the hype.

    To be fair, USPLabs always releases innovative supplements that work really well so there should be excitment. If our last product was Green tea and vitamin C than we have no business in hyping,.

    I like to believe we earned respect in this regard. There are some Recreate testers on AM posting great feedback.

  16. So wait, nobody has guessed this yet. Man we suck.

    I agree with everything you mentioned. You guys are truly innovative. In all my years seeing supps come and go your company has created the most novel and effective supps I have ever seen. Your company has become, in my mind, the ideal that other companies strive to be. Almost all the new things coming out from my old favorites seem to be reformulations of preexisting products.

    I suppose I was caught up in the moment and wanted you to release your product on my time line. I apologize.

  18. I was wondering if it was an ecdysterone extract as a few have been shown to have anti-ox activity and also inhibit 11beta-HSD1 while not binding to the AR and thus no worries about HPTA suppression.

    Me too. I'm wondering if it's nto a spice though as some have thermo properties and absurdly high ORAC ratings. Nonetheless Jacob and USP have done a great job in raising everyone interest and I'm sure we'll have to wait to find out exactly what it is.

  28. cinnamon

  29. ginger, cumin, turmeric..... just throwing some names out htere
