Ok, this question was in an email (and also posted by French Muscle i believe) - paraphrased, since i deleted the email in a moment of techo-joy.
In the beta versio of activate, the dosing is 20 caps per day (4-6 caps per day for the final). Can i dose higher than this?
If dosing significantly higher than recomended dosing (x1.5 or x2 the recommended dosing), then it may be a very good idea to stack it with Rebound XT - particularly those sensitive to estrogen or symptoms of gyno. 2 caps of Rebound XT is sufficient for this cause and should prove to be a very potent stack.

^^^ nice post robboe I'm waiting for the final product to be available, and hell yeah RXT + ActivaTe = very potent stack !

How many caps come in the bottle in the beta version?
I saw the pic on the website of what must be the future container and it says 90 caps. So I ordered 4 bottles. Hehe. I opened the box when I got it today and there is 4 massive bottles of what looks like at least 300 or more caps. The bottle doesn't say how much is in it. So now I have like what, 1200 caps of Activate?
Maybe I missed it but the website possibly could be more clear about that.
Anyway, I'm going with 4X5 caps per day along with 3 caps RXT starting today for PCT after a M1,4ADD and 1T/4AD trans cycle. Sound good?
06-17-2005, 11:34 PM
Sorry, yeah. This is the beta version, which has 15 days worth. Each day is 20 caps, so yeah, its 300 caps.
You bought basically 2 months worth, which is a perfect duration.

When will this be for sale through retailers? (ie final sale with the better extract. Taking 20 pills a day sucks)

Can you write me up a sample activate & leanextreme stack cycle ? how many bottle of each do i need is it 2 of each or what ?

Stream - I didn't have any problems, and I have some puberty-induced gyno.
I don't recall any of the other Activate only beta testers having any problems.
But, we all dosed the recommended amounts. So, if you go above, who knows.

taking this on cycle be of benifit?

lets say the S1+, m1t, SD cycle i'm planning for december?Depends what you're cycling, but yeah, there is potential synergy. If you do, might be an idea to have an AI like rebound on hand in the event of a lot of aromatisation occuring.
oh and I always have some sort of AI and my pct on hand before starting any cycle.

yeah i guess that was written kinda wierd huh. its a six week
s1+ cycle with a two week m1t jumpstart at 5mg ed. then sd
for the last 4 weeks

After I swallow thses pills I taste/smell Tribulus when I burp this stuff up. Is that one of the ingredients? What exactly is in Activate?
06-24-2005, 08:18 PM
Unless your using something that isn't very suppressive, like for example, 40mg anavar a day or 400mg-500mg trans 4ad a day, then you really shouldn't be using your Activate on cycle.
Logically it just doesn't make any sense. Maybe for the first few days, but the longer your cycle goes on and the more suppressed your testosterone gets, the more that Activate is a waste of money on-cycle.
Hell, there's been atleast 2-3 logs on here that have shown low doses of M1T to completely shut you down, within a 3-5 days.
So if your using anything as suppressive or more suppressive than M1T, along with Activate, your completely wasting your money.
Think about it, whats the point of trying to increase free T, when Total T is shut down? You can't even do that.
Save Activate for PCT and off-cycle Test Booster, thats where it is most cost-effective.
BUT, if your cycle is really not very suppressive, then I agree with Robboe, there may be some synergy... it would have to be a very weak cycle though, since even most light compounds will shut down T within 45 days.
A better strategy would be to do very short, fast acting, non suppressive cycles, coupled with Activate.
Like 500mg trans 4ad day 1-14
20 cap activate day 1-28
1 cap RXT day 1-14
2 cap RXT day 15-28
From day 1-14 your total/free and supplemental T would be through the roof, with only very minimal suppression
Day 15-28 your getting a solid PCT for any suppression there might have been, which is probably close to Nil, then you could just repeat the whole thing again if you want.
Would be pretty expensive though, but this would be a kick ass HRT because your test would be way above average high year round, without really f'n with the HPTA at all.

Don't answer that. I just peeped the write-up. Are those plants related in any way though? Because it has a similar flavor.Originally Posted by handzilla

you're assuming that exogenous test can't be bound by SHBG (which it can)Originally Posted by TheTom

Earlier, Sledge said that Activate itself will block DHT:http://anabolicminds.com/forum/showthread.php?t=26137Since ActivaTe also blocks DHT, an increase in ...
Even though the Activate compound is blocking DHT, is it possible that the increase in free test can also indirectly increase DHT? In other words, even while blocking DHT, is there an overall net reduction in DHT or net gain? (in theory)
(P.S. This is related to another thread, but no one responded to clarify this: ActivaTe & Propecia, DHT, SBHG confusion )

I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but say I wanted to run activate by itself while training natty for 2-3 months...since I will not be running RXT (acne gets too bad) will I receive any HPTA shutdown when coming off? I've heard that it can actually cause shutdown, is this true?
Also, you guys that were experiencing acne while using activate solo...how bad did it get, and how was it compared to the acne from RXT for those of you who've tried both? thx for any help.
06-27-2005, 03:47 PM
Nah, course not. It won't effect your HPTA. Who told you it would?Originally Posted by lifted
I'm quite prone to bad skin (this tends to be the core of Steve's insult material) but Act wasn't too bad on me at all. A little more on my face and back.Also, you guys that were experiencing acne while using activate solo...how bad did it get, and how was it compared to the acne from RXT for those of you who've tried both? thx for any help.

I thought I remembered Dr. D or somebody from DS say that if anything, free test would rise while total T may decrease a bit or something like that due to the aromatization of the conversion??!! Pff...I can't remember, anyways that's great to hear...I wanna get a little boost for the rest of this summer until the fall before I full out bulk again....a little edge would be nice.Originally Posted by Robboe
My skin gets so bad when running certain hormones and hormone related compunds... This past Post cycle is actually making me wanna quit AAS altogether...I get that cystic acne like crazy....bleh..
06-27-2005, 06:16 PM
If we're talking theory, then yes, there may be an increase in DHT. The case here is similar for the case with testosterone - there may be an overall drop in testosterone, but the %age free will definately increase.Originally Posted by rrgg
06-27-2005, 06:18 PM
Blocking SHBG may reduce overall test output, but you are freeing up more active test.Originally Posted by lifted
For example -
Total Test: 100
Free Test: 40
Total Test: 80
Free Test: 60
Arbituary numbers but you get the gist.
