    I'm calling you out on a technicality Sesamin is not a fat; it is a phytoestrogen. Sesame Seed oil is a good source of mono/poly unsaturated fats.

    Eh, I figure a month or two of this can't hurt. So far I feel like i'm having less joint pain and good mood elevation, and seeming to add lean mass at a rate as if I was taking anabolic steroids. So i'll ride it out a few weeks, see how it goes.

    I'm just busting your chops. (a lignan is a type of phytoestrogen, in case anyone is curious)

    okay, I do recall reading that an excessive amount may hinder strength gains, due to its effects on inflammation and the immune system, so maybe pay attention to that this month

    In 5g worth of what i'm taking its 554mg of EPA and 369 of DHA. so

    EPA - 3324mg
    DHA - 2214mg

    a 4-capsule serving of Biotest's Flameout:

    DHA: 2200 mg.
    EPA: 880 mg.

    So dha wise, taking in 30g of fish oil is about equivalent to flameout's normal dose, has lots more EPA. I take 6g of CLA a day too.
    Ok thats not so bad. If the caps were higher then you might have a problem, you obviously don't want to go too high. The body is very efficient at snatching up DHA at least.

    I'm taking liquid not caps, it would be a complete pain to do 30 caps a day :P I looked at the math on the dha/epa, (damn i'm still hijacking the soap thread over fish) and its not that much. If you look at this

    2005 DGAC report - Addendum A: EPA and DHA Content of Fish Species

    you can see you get almost 1.5g of DHA from a 100g salmon fillet. Considering thats not quite 4oz, and I usually have more than that, I think hitting 4-5g of DHA isn't bad, as I could easily do it fish based in a meal rather than taking oils. The pity is that most fish oils have more EPA than DHA, where from what I've read its probably better the other way around.

    This is actually something on my list to try. I already make a pretty kickass blend using Enova, avocado, flax, and a few other oils (notably the pumpkin oil, which is amazing).

    If I can get a decent soap out of fish oil without the smell, then I think it would be excellent.

    Maybe sea salt, lemongrass oil and ginger would help it hide? trying to think of smells in the same direction scentwise that could be sharp + crisp enough to cover it.

    Other than scent, what sort of benefits come from make soap from various oils? I would think fish oil fatty acids would be expensive to be destroying with lye.

    Is this still the same formula that was listed a few weeks ago?I remember things like green tea, sesamin,rk's,etc..It was a pretty impressive formula, and looked very solid.

    [QUOTE=dsade;976953]This one is meant to control acne, but it also stimulates blood flow to surface of the skin, tingles, and MAY just help with vascularity/leanness.

    Just wanted to ask...would something that helped stimulate blood flow to the skin also help then with scars/stretchmarks?I thought I read somewhere where increased blood flow in the area helped with that.

    Some testers reported some allergic-type reaction, so we are reformulating.

    Do you have a soap that does all those good things mentioned before, and makes you swole, as well as cut?

    AHHH!! Thanks for reminding me. We got Bruce to agree to supply Chikara in bulk so we can make Chikara Pheremone Soap.

    IMO, it will be perfect for showering with before a big date or going out to a club.

    I too have notice java lather seems to have controlled my acne on my back. I still randomly get a pimple, but it has worked wanders compared to my usual bath soap. Can't wait to try this new product designed specifically for acne. I'm def hooked on java lather though.
