Rosie's Review of Slin-Sane
I have finished one bottle of Slin-Sane and am going to use more. See why . . .
What is it?
* Enhances vasodilation and muscle pumps
* Elevates nitric oxide
* Drives nutrients into cells
* Stimulates insulin release, mimicks insulin and enhances insulin's endogenous effect
* Reduces fat gain and speeds up fat loss
* Regenerates pancreatic beta cells
* Supports healthy blood lipids
For the product write-up, please see Genomyx: Slin-Sane.
Taste: 10/10. Slin-Sane does not have a taste, nor does it leave an aftertaste - and I dosed it both with and without water.
Vascularity: 9/10. Vascularity has been pretty decent, especially since I have been eating a LOT of carbohydrates.
Pumps: 5/10. Pumps not so much.
NO Effects: 9/10. In conjunction with carbohydrate consumption, Slin-Sane worked a treat - interesting, since during my use of Slin-Sane, there were a few days where I used a NO product pre-training, and they did NOT produce anywhere near this (in fact, they had the OPPOSITE effect!)
Nutrient Repartitioning: 9/10. I definitely noticed if I did not eat within 15-20 minutes of dosing Slin-Sane. I was able to consume large quantities of food over a reasonable period of time (80-90 minutes of NON-STOP eating and shoveling the food in like there's no tomorrow) and not feel uncomfortable - more like my usual self before coming over to the US.
Body Composition and Look: N/A. Circumstances under which I used Slin-Sane were interesting - the first week was a week OFF training (with a couple of light training days) at MAINTENANCE calories (which is very high calories - ~4,300 daily - and high carbohydrates). I gained ~15 pounds in the first four days from food and water weight, but had lost most of it by the end of the first week. Since I have not used Slin-Sane for long enough during a normal period of training, I cannot comment here - aside from saying that despite my eating habits, after a week, there was no bloating or water retention, etc. the morning after a heavy meal (the bulk of my calories and carbohydrates have been eaten within 2-3 hours of passing out).
Blood Lipids: N/A. I have not had bloods done pre and post-Slin-Sane, so cannot comment here.
Side Effects: 10/10. Slin-Sane is recommended to be dosed at 1 cap pre-meal, generally no more than three times daily. I used 6 caps a day on average, and did not experience any insulin-like side effects.
Overall: 9/10. I was NOT using creatine (had been off for ~2 weeks before starting use) or any other products with nutrient repartitioning/insulin mimicking effects when using Slin-Sane. My purpose for using Slin-Sane was for its nutrient repartitioning/insulin mimicking effects and it did not fail to deliver. No bloating was experienced at any time, and after a few days, water retention from the first few days of no training and coming off a week of competition dieting, disappeared. What I like about Slin-Sane is that it is a specific nutrient repartitioner/insulin mimic - I used to use NeoVar Recomped for this purpose (as well as as my creatine product) and sometimes I was doing as high as 12-16 caps a day from using it for properties other than creatine effects, which is not ideal for an individual of my body mass (far too much creatine - wasting it - daily). The only recommendation for Slin-Sane I have is perhaps a larger capsule content per bottle for those of us that DO dose a little higher sometimes.
Would I use again? Yes. And this time I WILL stick to 3 caps daily: 1 cap first thing, 1 cap 15-20 minutes pre-Meal 1, and 1 cap pre-bed - at this dosage, a bottle of Slin-Sane would last just under three weeks.
Would I recommend? Yes.

This is easily one of my staples no because of the price, the efficacy, and helping out Dsade. I got a couple of bottles when it was $12.99 and I really wish I had gotten more.M.Ed. Ex Phys

great review, rosie! thank you so much!
i agree with every one of your ratings, even the pump score, which i rarely feel and if i do i don't attribute it to the SS.
how do you like the pre-bed dosing? does it have any positive impact on your sleep quality?
still can't believe you emptied a bottle in a week and a half, but i'm glad you're giving it another go.

Really solid review, Rosie. I unfortunately didn't respond well to it (which I really wish i did, especially at the price). I'm intrigued by the pre-bed dosing - I hadn't heard anything about that at all (I just dosed before larger carbohydrate-loaded meals).

I like the pre-bed dosing (and the first thing dosing). I didn't dose before all of my high carbohydrate meals, and those two doses made up for it. Didn't affect my sleep quality at all.
I know, LOL

Good review! I got 8 bottles sitting on my shelf from when nutraplanet had the 5$ sale a while ago! It's good stuff!
