    Some of these supplement companies actually put their minimum/maximum dosage suggestions on the product page and the bottle, unfortunately this is a rare occurrence.

  2. I'd like to see how it actually works on a guy with some actual fat to lose. Not some guy/lady wanting to lose 5-10 vanity pounds.

    Id be more impressed if this works on leaner people than fat people. Having actual excessive fat to lose is far easier than losing that final 5-10 to get ripped.

    That all depends...I've already seen a few logs where the guys don't have much fat to lose at all. Now I would like to see some people in at least the 15-20% body fat ranges....

    I see...a variety of logs is nice, I agree. Would be nice to see how well the potential appetite suppressing effect with larger people well.

    All i know is I've cranked up my eating with no ill effects. Felt ok to have Philly cheese steak for lunch so I did. I eat a lot more carbs than I was before and no adverse effects, I am hungry though not sure about the appetite suppression but it appears to have done something good to my metabolism

    I started Ursobolic 2 days ago and dropped my ephedrine cycle. My appetite has decreased since then.

  8. Hmm on the fence to include this in my PCT or use endosurge. I know they are completely different but I'm still undecided. Guess it depends on how well people respond to Ursobolic.

    That would definitely be me... Was at 291 a year ago to this day! Managed to get down to 228 (now back up to 235), with exercise, diet, supplements and a little dabbling in PH's (lasted all of 2.5 weeks before sides became an issue). So far I managed to hit a plateau, so I'm trying UA out to see where it takes me. My log is on another site PHforum .. dsteez419

    I experienced something similar to the Truth. Great appetite suppression during the day, then BAM munching like crazy at night. I have since added OEP to my stack to further enhance the appeptite suppression, interested in the anti-catabolic effects.. So far I've had two meals today and a handful of cashews and feel like I pigged out at an all you can eat buffet.. definitely have no interest (right now) to eat anything else!

    Yes, but then you have the problem where companies inflate their dosing requirements way above and beyond what's really needed. I'm skeptical that exact thing isn't happening with Ursobolic.

    Did some research (ergo-log.com/ursolicacid.html) and turned up the following gem:

    The researchers suspect that ursolic acid's prime target is the IGF-1 receptor. This becomes more sensitive and as a result the IGF-1 that is present in the body works better.
    If my line of reasoning is correct, wouldn't the effects of resistance training on GH and IGF be potentiated by dosing Ursobolic pre- and post-workout? And wouldn't this be the most logical time in which to use a product that potentiates IGF?

  12. Anybody have thoughts on this?

    Too much of anything is bad for you, so I guess it depends on how many apples you eat. Oh yeah, this is a bodybuilding forum though, so there is no such thing as too much right????...

    There is also a positive study...both are in vitro stuff so no conclusions imo.

    Ursolic acid protects diabetic mice against monocyte dysfunction and accelerated atherosclerosis.

    Abstract
    AIMS:

    Accelerated atherosclerosis is a major diabetic complication initiated by the enhanced recruitment of monocytes into the vasculature. In this study, we examined the therapeutic potential of the phytonutrients ursolic acid (UA) and resveratrol (RES) in preventing monocyte recruitment and accelerated atherosclerosis.
    METHODS AND RESULTS:

    Dietary supplementation with either RES or UA (0.2%) protected against accelerated atherosclerosis induced by streptozotocin in high-fat diet-fed LDL receptor-deficient mice. However, mice that received dietary UA for 11 weeks were significantly better protected and showed a 53% reduction in lesion formation while mice fed a RES-supplemented diet showed only a 31% reduction in lesion size. Importantly, UA was also significantly more effective in preventing the appearance of proinflammatory GR-1(high) monocytes induced by these diabetic conditions and reducing monocyte recruitment into MCP-1-loaded Matrigel plugs implanted into these diabetic mice. Oxidatively stressed THP-1 monocytes mimicked the behavior of blood monocytes in diabetic mice and showed enhanced responsiveness to monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) without changing MCP-1 receptor (CCR2) surface expression. Pretreatment of THP-1 monocytes with RES or UA (0.3-10μM) for 15h resulted in the dose-dependent inhibition of H(2)O(2)-accelerated chemotaxis in response to MCP-1, but with an IC(50) of 0.4μM, UA was 2.7-fold more potent than RES.
    CONCLUSION:

    Dietary UA is a potent inhibitor of monocyte dysfunction and accelerated atherosclerosis induced by diabetes. These studies identify ursolic acid as a potential therapeutic agent for the treatment of diabetic complications, including accelerated atherosclerosis, and provide a novel mechanism for the anti-atherogenic properties of ursolic acid.

  17. I'm not really sure what to say dude. You aren't really asking anything. Are you asking if this will give you heart problems? Cause cell death? Cancer?

    I don't believe in studies with mutant mice/rats. They are so effed up to begin with...

    Im not asking anything actually other than people thoughts on the study. Thanks for sharing your opinion.

    Not entirely sure if your post was facetious, I'm not good at the whole forum thing yet, but I still stand by the fact that I hate mutant rat and mice (studies).

    No not facetious at all. Sometimes people post studies they run into here in these related threads to continue the dialogue.

    Im using Ursobolic as we speak, so my intent isnt to discredit the product either.

    This is interesting, a drop AFTER Ephedrine? I'd get some ephedrine here in Japan but I read it was recently outlawed because too many ppl OD'd on it..... But that's some good news!

    Thanks
    it reduced motility. it didnt reduce sperm volume like steroids do.

    i did my best guess at dosage ranges and put that on my label. dont remember what they were off top of my head right now

    I would think it would depend on what you want out of the product.

    EndoSurge will free up some test via SHBG, as well as control prolactin and enhance sleep. Maybe increase GH levels. Some don't think that suppressing SHBG is good because SERMS increase SHBG and that in turn helps the negative feedback loop when you jump off the SERM and increases it's effectiveness in recovery. I can't comment personally though as I've only used EndoSurge in a completely non hormonal period.

    Also, Usorbolic, though I'm not sure as it's effects on the HPGA, will not help you control prolactin, or increase test. IMO it's more of a body recomp agent though non HPGA pathways (Yea I dont know if those pathways even exist), but that's the way I see it. I'm going to give it a run in about 5 weeks. Still debating wether or not to make a detailed log or not yet.

    You did say you followed a loading protocol though right? Like 1.2g a day down to half or so of that, into more like a maintenance phase? Or did you dose like the whole equivalent to 18caps a day throughout ?

    I don't think he intentionally loaded it. He was using raw powder at the start not capped, in another post I read that his early dosing was haphazard and he settled into the suggested dose.

    Abstract

    Th17 cells have recently emerged as a major player in inflammatory and autoimmune diseases via the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines IL-17, IL-17F, and IL-22. The differentiation of Th17 cells and the associated cytokine production is directly controlled by RORγt. Here we show that ursolic acid (UA), a small molecule present in herbal medicine, selectively and effectively inhibits the function of RORγt, resulting in greatly decreased IL-17 expression in both developing and differentiated Th17 cells. In addition, treatment with UA ameliorated experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis. The results thus suggest UA as a valuable drug candidate or leading compound for developing treatments of Th17-mediated inflammatory diseases and cancer.

    I bought mine from amazon, 2 bottles for $45 had it in three days. Oh well the price you pay for being in first. I am eating more carbs and just more recklessly in general thus far to know ill effect, been starving myself to stay cut through the summer months. Eating is good,eating what I want even better, within reason
