    That's true to some point. As your test levels increase the body will likely down regulate the androgenic producing peripheral enzymes as a response. This is probably the reason prohormones tend to work better in older guys (lower test levels thus upregulating of critical peripheral enzymes.

    At the same time (and I've seen this mentioned in some of the andro research), the conjugation enzymes in the liver and intestines seem to be overwhelmed so to speak during the first 4-5 weeks. But then fight back.

    Negative feedback mechanisms are a bitch aren't they.

    This is why in our cycle outlines we don't suggest a cycle length over five weeks.

    At lot of this is more theory of course. I like talking about it though.

    That actually works for the bros in the supp shops and gyms to some degree. Not so much the board crew as you know.

    I think a better cycle will be five weeks or less at a higher dose as opposed to a long low dose cycle.

  5. Hmm.. I have all kinds of questions now. If you don't mind me asking, since there are 2 approaches you mentioned e.g. do not exceed 5 weeks at recommended, and\or a higher dosage at 5 weeks or less.

    I want to throw in a variable here of another ph for example when stacking AlphaMass with lets say a 4-dhea compound. Regardless if it is a higher dosage or recommended dosage, is there the possibility of competing pathways, or is there a way to actually mitigate that, and can that happen if you take a larger dose on a 4-5 week cycle for a single compound.
    I'm looking at 2 scenarios:
    1. A stack where compounds compete for the same pathway, causing one not to get the desired results (diet and hard work are assumed to be in place)
    2. A single compound at a higher dose causing a saturation point, or just to much for the pathway to absorb.

    If the wording sounded dumb, it's cause I'm not a scientist or bio-chemist major, minor or anything Just from what I have read this is how I visualized the process.

    So, maybe something like a 7-8 week Legal SARM run finished with 4-5 week Alpha Mass for 12 weeks total?

    You have the right idea. Or even 4-5 weeks with prohormones followed by a methyl for 3-4 weeks. That's assuming the methyl is an active steroid, which basically eliminates the peripheral enzymes needed for the conversions.

    They do compete for the same enzymes. This illustrates the conversion pathways of 1-DHEA, but you could plug in 4-DHEA, 19-norDHEA, and even a few other prohormones at the same spot as 1-DHEA and follow either path. So really in situation 1 or 2 it wont vary. The difference you may see is some synergy between compounds. Example 1-DHEA and 4-DHEA will be popular simply because it will be relatively side effect free, but it wont create as good of gains as 1-DHEA alone at an equivalent dose, or even 1-DHEA + 19-norDHEA. Does this answer your question? Or at least help?

  9. i've noticed that when running pro hormones. low dosages start out good, but i keep having to increase the dosage to get the same effect. it's how i ended up at 1,000mg of 4-ad.

    Makes sense based on some of the research. I think this is also why you see more variability when it comes to gains when dealing with PH's vs. something like superdrol. Still it's about 19,000 times easier on the system.

    It does help and am doing some reading on neurochemistry as a result to gain a better understanding. I mean for all intents and purposes we are dealing with activation via 3b-hsd and 17b hsd type 2 & 10 into 1-testosterone. However it seems that this can bounce back and forth e.g. activation and deactivation.
    So I think a bit sunk in the memory bank :-)

    Now, what about synergy? I got incomplete info which did not go into details or nothing actually and just said that by stacking you get the effect of 1+1=3 or if you add more 1+1+1=5, and did not explain what prohormones are synergistic.
    Also on that note, I don't think you necessarily need to stack phs with phs, but instead you can enhance the effect using certain supplements such as creatine, l-carnitine-l-tartrate, DAA (read somewhere its good to do throughout a cycle for easier recovery).

    I appreciate the information and education you are giving, it's actually really cool.
    Thanks!

  12. Same here roid thanks for all the information your spreading. I would rep you but can't from my phone.

  13. A quick question comes to mind though. I've been planning on a run with the alpha mass product and the deca sarm product from ams. My question is after a nice long 12 week cycle of deca sarm and then a pct would it not be a good idea to run a ph like alpha mass but instead something that was active on it's own like epi so as to give the enzymes enough time to re up so to speak.

    I think you are looking at the arrows incorrectly. Type 2 and 10 actually convert the hormones back into less powerful prohormones. But you do have the right idea that the conversions are not 'static' and they can be moving back and forth depending upon the tissue it interacts with...

    Synergy was a bad word. I should have said "complimentary". Think of it like this:

    Gains in size/strength - on a scale of 1-10 with 10 equaling great gains

    12 caps of Alpha Mass/day = 10
    6 caps of Alpha Mass + 6 caps of Alpha Bulk (4-DHEA product) = 5-8

    Side effects (ex. lethargy, libido loss) - on a scale of 1-10 with 10 equaling bad sides

    12 caps of Alpha Mass/day = 10
    6 caps of Alpha Mass + 6 caps of Alpha Bulk (4-DHEA product) = 4-6

    Or something similar to the above.

    I wish I could easily answer that, and it's something to look into for sure. However, after a lay off just like your hormonal system these enzymes will recover. So assuming you take adequate time off you should be fine.

    LOL! Yes I definitely did The formula you provided makes sense if one is willing to forgo the sides, or go with a conservative approach. This gives me lots to think about and consider.
    Would you think it reasonable that the gains are relative to the persons ph experience? I often wonder about de-sensitization of the receptors as I do know for some people it seems to be chronic usage thus the need to megadose, whereas a person who rarely uses them e.g. 1 year + since the last run would benefit the most from the recommended dosage solo or in a stack?
    I would stack both the 1dhea and 4dhea and having had 2 very short cycles (3 weeks approx) over 2 years ago, maybe the gains would be on the high end 8+?

    Also when will alpha bulk be released? :-)

  18. I just read the study Pmid:21870106 and saw that the subjects consumed 300 mg's for 2 weeks afterwards the test was performed to evaluate the enzyme activity, and also noticed that there was a decrease in CYP2D6 between 0-8 h urinary dextromethorphan/dextrorphan increased ninefold.

    Are they saying that the enzyme activity was already inhibited immediately after consuming 300 mg's of berberine as mentioned by 0-8h (0 - 8 hours after administration?).

    They actually gave them 300mg's three times per day (t.i.d. = 3).

    They gave them the drug(s) on day 1 before dosing any berberine and took blood and urine samples. Gave them berberine for two weeks, and on the last day gave them the same drug and took blood and urine sample. Then compared the two.

    I think I'll try to get around to posting a thread on Med Term in relationship to dosings and meds etc. Been meaning to do it for awhile now. Just see people posting off the wall abbv. for how many times a day and so forth and it always bugs me..lol. Not that it is bad or I get mad, but maybe it'll help people keep on the same track, just like in the medical community.

    A lot if those terms are banned in hospitals now. We had a meeting a couple years back on why they are Jo longer allowed in our hospital.

    However the thread would be useful for those reading PubMed. Should make a "Deciphering Pub Med: For Dummies!" article!

    Things like abbv for morphine are mso4 and such. Because of how similar they are to other notes, but much and most are still good. When I do it up, I'll do it based off of Joint Commision... THE standard which all hospitals are subjected to.

  27. With all that being said, I guess stacking this with PP's AM or AH would not be a good thing, or could it be? Or maybe I can stack with one or the other rather than both. If one or the other, which one?

    They will not suggest this. Their hormone shield to my knowledge does not interact well with PP's. They have different opinions on the use of DHB and its effects on enzymes.

    ^^^ This, PP's is less selective than FR, which I believe decreases down-stream conversion to the more favored metabolites. It'd be like using a scalpal and a chainsaw in the same incision of a surgery...
