    Fenugreek Maple Syrup stink!!!


    Guys I am in PCT and I can not begin to tell you how bad I stink like Maple Syrup from Fenugreek. At first it was just my girl telling me I smelled like Maple Syrup which I thought was funny. Then I have started to smell myself. It is pretty strong. I guess it could smell worse. I actually thought my girl might like the smell but that was not the case. Anyway I just thought this was funny since I am only taking 2g per day.

    I guess that sucks, I never smell anything on myself even at 3g/day. Perhaps I have a gland problem :x Hey you could be smelling like ass so I guess its not all bad.

    I was funny she didn't really complain but I was like "don't you like it?Mapel syrup smells good..." and she was like, "well it not bad....." I thought it would be goo but Iguess if she smelled like frien chicken or some of the other fatty food I crave I guess it wouldn't be a good thing....

    My wife just laughs at me because she says that since I take so many herbs that it's only natural that I begin to smell like a plant. lol

    It's pretty bad........ especially when I had to take a leak. There is nothing quite like the smell of urine maple syrup. My wife was always looking around trying to figure out where the smell was coming from and seemed to take a general disliking to the scent. She was always asking me if I made pancakes and sniffing around. It was kind of funny. I tried it once and really didn't notice anything other than the smell so I don't use it. Some people love it though.

    Not to be too personal, but you may very well detect its effect on women as well (hint - the effect is not urine-based).

    I got it pretty bad when I would sweat. It may be that those who sweat more notice the smell more.

    I dont get it, I used fenugreek for about 3-4 weeks on my PCT and didnt notice anything from it. I started taking about 1800mg for week 1, 2400mg for week 2, and 3000mg for week 3 and into week 4. I didnt notice anything at all from it, didnt make me smell like a giant pancake, didnt effect libido, nothing. Am I just not sensitive to this herb or what??

    Well I decided to buy a different brand of fenugreek to try it one more time. It was really cheap so I just bought another bottle and will be running it alone, not in PCT, and without any PH's or anything. The only thing Im taking right now is a light ECA dosage regimin, protien, and CEE. I'll keep you updated.

    Well I got my new fenugreek in the mail today. I opened the bottle and it really smells like maple syrup. I got Natures Way this time around. Im not sure what kind I got last time, but it was just the standard stuff they have at the Vitamin shop and it didnt smell like anything, maybe it was a bum batch or something, I dont know. Anyways, we'll see what happens this week.
