    Best cortisol blocker?


    Vote! I'm trying to pick one for PCT. I only picked a few of the big ones.

    During PCT w/ a SERM use:

    DHEA at 200mg first week, 150mg second week, 100mg third week and 50mg fourth week.

    At other times 2 grams of Vitamin C pre-workout.

    Save your money...you don't need those expensive supplements.

    I agree with DatBeTrue, however, some don't like to use DHEA in PCT for certain reasons being debated. I would say if you have the money, go for Retain 2, but doubled dosed would be best. It's underdosed. Yeah. It is.

    If you want awesome recomp, cortisol control, and elevated fatloss, go for 7-Cort (8oz size) by Dermabolics and use 5 sprays in the morning and 5 sprays at night transdermally. It's about 35 bucks for a month. It's awesome.

    Thanks for bringing this up. I was wondering about 7-Cort...I've been back and forth on it and finally decided to add some to my shopping cart the other night. So I'll give it a go.

    Now that I see you recommend it I'm sure it will be a great product for my nonhormonal recomp.

    I also just picked some up. Did you see the product they have called metacort? It has 6 oxo and 7 oxo. I think I may give it a try sometime.

    I agree here, but I also believe Retain 2 is a good product form experience. I definitely noticed stronger effects when I upped the dose. (so Forceofgreen you are right about that)...Id like to here more about the 7-cort's effectiveness.

    Using Lean Xtreme right now on cycle, no problems with it, I take it as directed and feel a bit tighter than I did before starting. I like the fact of the 7-OH it has.

    i used retain 2 last PCT and I sort of feel like i had a rebound from it. I think I may go with lean extreme this time...or just mega dose Vitc and use some ralora and maybe 7-OH

    I'm trying Restore myself, along with PCS as I wrote in another thread. I'm expecting it to do just what I need it to do, and this combo is not too expensive at all.

    I'll go for a combination of Lean Xtreme, Relora, and Ashwagandha.

    Expensive??? when was the last time you looked up the price on X-Lean?

    Ive seen it as low as 20 bucks before. That is a STEAL for what it is, I think that its very underrated, mostly cause many havnt tried it and stick to AX's and DS's. IBE put alot of research into it and it will provide you with more then just cortisol blocking. It can actually increase the strength of you immune system on multiple levels... and just think we are working on an improved version as we speak

    X-Lean is a good product for keeping cortisol levels at bay during intense exercise. If you megadose it, you can sit around and do nothing and lose fat.

    DS LX caused a major decrease in appetite for me, which is good because I'm cutting, and an indicator that my cortisol has been lowered.

    My favorite.

    If retain has DHEA and causes suppression, then why would anyone want to use it in their PCT?

    you can get relacore for 16 bucks and it has dhea in it. So it controls cortisol and converts to test.

    7-keto actually is suppressive, despite what most manufactures claim. Its not really desirable for PCT.

    I would be hesitant to use the 11-oxo during PCT because it is also a steroid hormone, which may pose the same down regulation of the HPTA as the DHEA metabolites (7-oxo, 5-AT, ect). Of course, this might not be the case, but no research has been done with 11-oxo to prove otherwise as far as I know.

    At VERY low doses, I would venture a guess that it would be ok (2-3 caps spread out), but nothing more.

    I can use Endoamp from day one of PCT, right?
