RPN needs a few good people to test our Gut Health/NOxidant Stack...are you up to it?
07-21-2008 07:47 PM
Height? 6ft3 inches
Weight? 225 lbs
Training Methods? Dc training(well almost due to an elbow injury I cannot do back width or arms)
Diet? I have this covered how do you think i get my weight up without using synthetic hormones
Current supplementation? green tea, CL's Orange Triad, creatine
Goals? This year 235 slimmer than i am now. In a couple-few years 230 ripped and 260-270 at my body fat
Previous experience with probiotics? I use acidophilus
Previous experience with antioxidants? green tea
Current, if any medical conditions? no
Why you should test this stack for us It is a great opportunity to make sure I clear any any stomach distress, issues, ulcers, if I do have any, and keep gas under control.
Dsade I'm running an Lg's liquid elbow log. I don't see how that would interfere. Regardless, it's your decision, big man. Thanks for everything bro. i'd also been researching Havoc and have thought about using it, as I could get away with it since it is going to be banned in the IFPA Dec 31st 2008. However i may not. What i would like to say is since you own RPN I feel safe using it since I trust you and your company. also I was thinking of running decavol for my joints(by AMS) however, i think that any thing that converts to Deca would equal deca-19 nor or nord(whatever its called) and that is already banned? Do you know? Regardless I'm not competing, if I do at all, in the IFPA in till 2011 . Cheers

I'm about to receive my RPN Gut Health, currently order is about 2 days away. Will be logging it here, along with details about me and training etc.... Feel free to send me some more or throw in Noxidant and I'll add that to my log, as I'm quite happy to log it.
Training Methods: 4-5 day per week, 2 muscle group per day routine.
Current supplementation:Gut Health (2 days in), Igf2, Drive, RPM and Poseidon
Goalsirty bulk at the moment
Previous experience with probiotics:none
Previous experience with antioxidants:none really
Current, if any medical conditions:none
Why you should test this stack for us:I write a damn good log, I update everyday without fail, I am aware of my own body and how it is feeling and reacting. I train hard, and currently I'm on quite a dirty bulk and feel these products would come in handy to help prevent bloating and stomach distension sometimes suffer from due to high protein and carbohydrates.
Here's a link to my log:
Years Training: 7 (5 seriously)
Goals for this cycle: Bulk up, pretty much gain as much lean body mass as possible.
Training schedule: 5 days per week, hitting legs twice per week
Thursday: Shoulders + Back
Log layout will look like this to rate supplement:

Well im new to ANABOLICMINDS but im not new to haveing stomach problems.I've been to doctors and all they ever want to give me is Prilosec OTC but even then the pain still really does'nt go away.They said I may have ulcers but could'nt be sure until they did more test,but with no insurance the test never happened.So im stuck paying 30bucks a box of this stuff and eatin tons of Rolaids on a daily basis. I wish i could eat a spicy food with out feeling the stomach pain.This is where your product comes to the rescue .(lol) I will run a honest detailed daily log for your guys if I should be chose.Thanks JOEPUMP.

I've given this a think, id be quite happy to run this, one problem is though guys, i Live in the UK, not sure it you'd be able to ship to me because of that?
Anyway below is my application details
Training Methods: Medium/High weight with medium reps ranging from 8-12 per set, I only work one particular muscle each workout, workouts are roughly twice per week, My recovery is a little slow, but its working great for me since the last 7months.
Diet: vegetarian, around 2600-2800calories per day, 160grams roughly protein, moderate carbs and low amount of fats.
Current supplementation: RPM/Drive/IGF-2 stack at present, Gingko Biloba daily, multi-vitamin, calcium zinc and magnesium tablets, b12 jabs weekly or once per 2 weeks depending on how I feel, i cycle NAC for a few days on, few days off, Vitamin C daily and post-workout, whey (obviously)
Previous experience with probiotics: Taken probiotic yogurts and some probiotic health drinks in the past, I have a bowl full of fresh yogurt daily to get extra good bacteria into my gut, tried a homemade type of probiotic culture called Kefir in the past for around 2months or so which is 'supposed' to be great for health. Im familiar with probiotics in general.
Previous experience with antioxidants: NAC, and Vitamin C are the main ones.
Current, if any medical conditions: None, unless Lactose intolerance is classed as one?! (this is the main reason why im applying)
Why you should test this stack for us: I get alot of gas all day, its embarassing, because im lactose intolerant, with just 3 servings of whey protein daily, I get plenty of fibre in my diet, and the rest of my diet is pretty spot on, I would love to try particularly the Gut health to see if this has any effect on treating/reversing my lactose problem somewhat or has any effect on getting rid of my gas i get daily lol.
Thanks for your time guys, like i said, I live in the UK so shipping might be a little on the expensive side, its no problem if you wont be able to ship out to me. Wish you guys all the best in finding some testers for your solid products, once again!

I could possibly benefit much from the stack. I've had ulcer issues off/on since 2000. I used to take Nexium for it ED, but after a couple of years of med therapy it's been mild enough that I can control it with OTC antacids. I still have mild symptoms but not bad enough to go back onto prescription meds.
Also I was diagnosed with Crohn's in 2000 and was hospitalized for a few weeks. It was pretty bad at the time but after changing my diet completely and being on meds for 2 years my health really rebounded nicely. My docs said the crohns could come & go randomly at anytime. Even though I've been lucky enough not to have any flares, I still have some pain/discomfort in my right side at times which's one of the symptoms and quite annoying.
All of the above issues seemed to stem from my extreme drinking when I was 20-24yrs old as the doctors concurred.
Training: Mon/Tue Thur/Fri Weight Training Split w/ Abs/Cardio on Wed & Sat
Goals: Overall Health and adding/maintaining lean mass as I age
Current Supplements: CoQ10, Hawthorn Extract, Flax Oil, Fish Oil
Previous experience with probiotics: None but have always been curious
Previous experience with antioxidants: Tea, Coffee, Heinz Ketchup
Current, if any medical conditions: The above are lingering, yet controlled for the most part
Why you should test this stack for us: I'm really not a big fan of testing products but this could be quite beneficial for myself and also the products above, considering my past

Weight? 215 lbs
Training Methods? Weight-training, 5 days per week.
Diet? Mostly clean, but occasionally have to pickup fast food on my way to work. Only recently started consuming fast food again due to some changes in my daily schedule. Planning on cutting it out. Always have a stomach ache. I also consume a lot of protein, which results in horrid gas and unpleasant dumping sessions.
Current supplementation? None at all.
Goals? I've been wanting to detox for quite some time, so I'm hoping that Gut Health would help with the process. I've never done a detox before. I'd like to help clean out my body and straighten out my digestion before starting a new cycle.
Previous experience with probiotics? None that I can remember. Anything in regards to disgestion, I've only taken different digestive enzymes before.
Previous experience with antioxidants? I eat plenty of fruits and vegetables in order to get natural antioxidants. I believe that it has helped me prevent from getting sick. I haven't been sick in months!
Current, if any medical conditions? None.
Why you should test this stack for us? I have a nice stash of DCP, Havoc, Slick Pleasures, Java Lather, and Thermo-glide, which goes to show how much faith I have in RPN products and how much of a dedicated fan that I am.

Running with the Big Boys
Great opportunity with great products, from a great company.
I have a shiny bottle of Gut Health sitting in the cupboard just waiting for me to have some stomach issues. Unfortunately I have a steel protected stomach . Either way I plan to use it on my next bulk as it has multiple benefits.
Winners please link your logs back here so us bystanders can check em out!

Why you should test this stack for us? IBS and stress are killing me right now. I found out in April I have IBS. It seems to affect me the worst when I eat fatty foods. However, 90% of the food I eat gives me problems. I am also preparing to play my first season of college football. I regularly get anxiety from thinking about it, which in turn gives me more stomach problems. I have also been overtraining which has only set me back in my progress. I recently have not been eating a lot due to the fact that it'll come out one end or the other in a very unpleasant way. Seriously, its not cool. I'd love to try the Gut Health, i've heard some awesome things and I hope it'll help with the IBS. Also i'd love to try the NOxidant and see if it can help me with recovery. Camp starts in 2 weeks so it'd be awesome to have this stack to help me go in healthy and feeling good.
Thanks for your consideration!

Training Methods: Low rep scheme, heavy weight
Tuesday- HIIT: 15 mins hard jog; 60 sec full-out sprint/60 second walk x5
Friday- Plyometrics (25 lb. weighted vest high box jumps, side-to-side box jumps, etc.)
Diet: 250-350g protein (depending on whether or not I'm concerned about the mercury in tuna), <45g fat, 300-450 carbs (heightened because of AP use)
Current supplementation: Anabolic Pump, Stoked, ALCAR, Beta Alanine, P-5-P, Whey Protein, Egg Protein
Goals: Help with immune system definitely, as I'm naturally prone to illness, relief from the s***s that AP brings about, sometimes uncomfortable and resulted in a rash the first dose.
Previous experience with probiotics: None
Previous experience with antioxidants: Green tea and blueberries!
Current, if any medical conditions: Seasonal allergies
Why you should test this stack for us: Well, as I mentioned before I am particularly prone to sickness and Anabolic Pump gave me a very uncomfortable rash and some diarrhea with the first dose of it. I've decided to continue to use it because I am a responder to it, and despite the increase of my carbohydrates, I am losing fat while putting on muscle, which is an awesome feeling. Also, I think this would be a prime stack for me to take right now because 2/days are coming up in football, and there's a lot of bacteria in the locker room, in the pads, in the showers etc., plus you can get sick from someone else by drinking from the team water bottles, and I think this would help me out a lot if I wasn't to get sick this year. Sophomore year (now a senior) I was throwing up most of the time because of all the germ issues that come with football, and I definitely don't want to have to endure that miserableness again. 2/days suck ass to begin with, throw in frequent vomiting and you've got a recipe for hell. Also, I'm a second-gen English major in the making, so I could throw in some pretty adjectives here and there in the log.
Thanks for the shot.
