    Wink For my 5000th post: Blue GENE





    Blue Gene was designed to help the serious athlete optimize mitochondrial biogenesis, hormone level ratios, and support oxygen rich blood cells during athletic performance and recovery, this stimulant-free formula means more endurance, power, and better recovery without pro-hormones or grey area compounds. No hormones means no post-cycle therapy, depression, or other risks associated with exogenous hormonal ingestion.




    The Blue C complex this product contains is a 3750mg blend of anti-catabolic, pro-anabolic ingredients that were not chosen at random. They work together and compliment eachother, creating a synergy that is hard to beat.


    Cissus is a natural, cutting-edge anti-cortisol / anti-catabolic compound that has taken the supplement industry by storm. While more research is needed on the exact mechanism of its anti-catabolic activity, we do know that the phytoconstituents are active and effective, improving the healing rate of tendons and ligaments (tendons and ligament function is essential for weightlifting strength and form). Acting as a natural glucocorticoid antagonist, Cissus may also have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. It has also been seen to aid in reducing obesity and reducing cholesterol. *1*



    Blue Gene also includes a hefty 1800mg dose of L-Carnitine. Carnitine was added to the formula for its numerous benefits, including recovery from intense training and reduced DOMS. Carnitine is responsible for the transport of long-chain fatty acids into the energy-producing centers of the cells (known as the mitochondria). In other words, carnitine helps the body convert fatty acids into energy, which is used primarily for muscular activities throughout the body. *2* Several studies suggest that L-carnitine supplementation may increase sperm count and mobility. One of the most promising studies we have seen from Carnitine showed an increase in testosterone, IGF-I, IGFBP-3 and GH after just 3 weeks of supplementation, in relation to exercise. *3*


    Carao and Catuaba extracts work in synergy with other ingredients to help the target muscle group receive more oxygen, improving performance and strength. As a bonus, many users report a noticeable increase in libido. It's no surprise it was added, as everyone knows that you need oxygen to your muscles in order for them to function at their peak. There's a saying among the people who live in the small villages of Brazil: Until a man is 60, the child is his... after that, it's Catuaba. No, Catuaba isn't the town gigolo, it's an herb that has been used for centuries as a treatment for infertility. Studies are scant but one instance where Catuaba was administered to 100 men, it turned out that in more than half of them, sperm count increased while the weight of prostate decreased. *4* This is tremendously exciting news to bodybuilders who want the most testosterone they can get without the potentially negative effects on the prostate.



    Quercetin and Ginkgo Biloba (used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine) provide a stimulant-free performance boost by increasing oxygen and circulation, giving the serious athlete a unique alternative to stimulant-based products. As a bonus, over time the formula may help support a healthy immune / respiratory system with potent anti-oxidant, anti-viral, and anti-allergen properties. Sodium Bicarbonate acting as a hydrogen buffer, helps reduce fatigue during training and enhance recovery between sets. Quercetin has demonstrated significant anti-inflammatory activity because of direct inhibition of several initial processes of inflammation.*5*. For example, it inhibits both the manufacture and release of histamine and other allergic/inflammatory mediators. In addition, it exerts potent antioxidant activity and vitamin C-sparing action. Anti-inflammatory properties are great in helping to fight DOMs and increase endurance levels.



    lcariin, Grape Seed Extract, Griffonia Simplicifolia Extract, Apigenin, Luteolin and Niacin work in synergy to help increase bloodflow, natural growth hormone levels, and circulating levels of testosterone while keeping estrogen under control. The formula may even help with cholesterol ratio (cholesterol is the building block for testosterone). Grape seed extract provides cardiovascular protection by preventing oxidation of lipoproteins (LDL), and also strengthens the capillaries ensuring a good supply of oxygen and nutrients to your muscles. GSE has also been shown to act as an Aromatase Inhibitor. *6* Icariin has been shown to mimic the effects of testosterone *7*, and also act as an antioxidant *8*.



    It is obvious to see the science behind Blue GENE, and why it was formulated this way. The obvious synergy between all of the ingredients is a force to be reckoned with. But what about user feedback? How well did it stand up in the gym? Just see for yourself...

However, this libido boost reached a pinnacle by the end of week two and my libido began to diminish until I reached normalcy again.

I never plateaued, and I always showed some type of progression (whether it was putting up slightly more weight, or pumping out another set with an extra 4 reps). This is due in part to the synergy between my diet principles, training regiment, and supplementation. There has only really been a couple natural test boosters that made me feel "on" (which I compare to my first cycle of a PH (11oxo) ). I felt ON during this log after a couple weeks, despite the mental stress and fatigue I underwent during my move/job relo.

    AFter I started feeling ON initially, my muscles were harder, I felt leaner (but there wasnt a significant correlation in terms of my weight, hydration level, and BF through my tanita scale). This was a similar feeling to a cycle of 11oxo. Again, dont expect PH numbers, but the effects are half the battle in pushing the intensity and motivation during workouts.

    I was able to consistently have intense workouts, combined with 30-45 minutes of cardio, alternating between moderate level and HIIT exercises to really push myself to the limit. I really didnt comment much on my cardio throughout my log, due to the fact it remained consistent throughout the log. I was hesitant to change it up too much for fear of skewing results.


    One of the other more prominent effects I witnessed of BLUE gene was the effect it had on libido - I noticed a significant increase at the end of week 1, and remained consistent throughout. I dont think I really need to elaborate on this, but stamina and intensity were increased, which is always welcomed. I am glad that I am off it now due to the fact of my fiancee being 1300 miles away would make things a bit more difficult.

    Many companies are coming out with great natural alternatives, and BLUE gene is now one of my favorites. I really think the product (for me) delivered on what it said it would do.

    What is interesting is that I was on maintenance calories and I ended up losing 5 pounds - but got stronger, had longer workouts, worked out more frequently, experienced little to almost no DOMS. I couldnt ask for more in a natural test booster.

    I loved this product, and would highly recommended it to anyone looking for a safe, natural test booster.

    I mean, in one month I feel so much stronger it's ridiculous. I recommend Blue Gene for anyone who is looking for a kick in the test levels, some good endurance, and potential power increases!

    Listen, this is an excellent product. I noticed many effects after the first week, and they just continued to get more noticible. At no point during my run did the effects subside, rather, they intensified.

    The main benefit Blue Gene gave me was muscle fullness/hardness. This is probably due to the Icariin, which is one of my favorite ingredients. Clearly, CL has place the correct amount and percentage (50%) in this product. I felt pumped all day. It was the type of pumped where you find yourself touching your shoulders/chest/arms at random points during the day, because you can't believe how solid they feel.

    My strength and endurance did have noticible increases during the run. I hit a new max on the bench (235) and a new rep max at 185 (9).

    Agression/focus was solid on Blue Gene as well.

    I did not have any noticible improvement in my joints, but then again, I don't really have joint issues to begin with.

    I would definitely use Blue Gene again, and I plan to in the future (after the Christmas craziness). The next time, I will run two bottles.

The tablets are about the size of a typical multivitamin and go down very easily. I never experienced any ill side effects; no bad after taste or stomach problems.

    Observations:

    Joint Relief: The biggest benefit I've experienced is in my joints, especially shoulders and knees. Cissus is a great ingrediant and I was very pleased to see this is the formula. This also indirectly lead to a gain in my strength, I wasnt hindered by pain when lifting heavy.

    Recovery: Everyone's favorite - DOMS. I noticed that my muscle were not as sore in the mornings. After a heavy chest, back or leg day, my worked muscles would tend to be pretty sore the following day or 2. With Blue Gene, the soreness was lessened and only vaguely apparent the following day.

    Endurance: I typically do reps in the 8-10 range. Since my body is so use to that, I tend to get fatigued pretty quickly after ~12 reps. During the past 30 days, I put purposely tried to bump that up and I did with very little problems. I felt a lot better in the 12 to 20 rep range, I felt less fatigued and "worn out".

    My weight has remained constant. Initially I was trying to lose weight, but ended up eating right around maintenance. Muscle fullness, pump, were comparable to your average NO product. Libido was higher than normal. Sleep was better than average, woke up with a nice "refreshed" feeling.

    This product along with Orange Triad, would make a perfect "staple stack", especially for active people who are getting up there in age like myself I still have a couple more bottles to go through so I'll update this log with further progress.

    Intra-set recovery: On my heaviest lifts I had let myself recover normally. But on any other lift, hands down, I was ready to go again and again. 9/10

    Muscle fullness & Hardness: about a week and a half of starting blue gene i looked in the mirror was like, damn. I've been getting comliments on how much bigger i look, even joking about juicing. The fullness is def a noticable feeling. 9/10

    these are things i noticed while being on Blue Gene. Other loggers mentioned other things they noticed while taking it. Some of those things I didn't notice and everyone is different. to put my money were my mouth is, i bought a second bottle to finish off a second month. Blue Gene is an awesome product.

I noticed my joints weren't cracking and crackling as much as they were at the start of the log. I had no problems with taking BG late and sleep... in fact, it may have contributed to better sleep.

    Quick reflection on BG - muscles seem tighter, fuller, and more powerful than pre-BG doing same work. I feel a little more focused strength or something like that -- power -- when doing explosive work like flipping larger logs or splitting the tough oak rounds.



    I take great care in what I put into my body, and with Blue GENE being one of my favorite products to use, with the reactions of others and the science backed ingredients, it's no surprise why.
