why would you use the microwave to heat your gear....i have no clue wether this degreades the juice or not but next time just use a hot water bath....

Or you could run the end of the vial under hot sink for 15-30 seconds. Microwave cant be good for it.

Yes, NEWBIE. You have been training for only 4 years and I have been training for almost longer than you've been alive...NEWBIE.
Please refrain from nonsensical responses and give advice if you have it. Otherwise, please don't respond...you are showing your immaturity.

I have no idea how it translates to your situation, but I talked with PA about heating other hormonals for transdermal and he said that as long as you dont get them scorching hot its not an issue.
Take it for what its worth

Thanks for the input MikeDre. It is the first real advice that I've gotten on this thread. I appreciate it.

Considering he came here asking a question that was legit to him; none of this treatment was warranted. Apparently none of you have a definitive answer so who looks like more of an idiot?
Seriously, grow up.

not arguing at all, but who would really use a microwave in this situation when over EVERY board it says somewhere that running the vial under hot water or putting it in semi-boiling water will work.
and Mods, as for his questions, i thought we werent allowed to talk about homebrewing?
03-13-2009, 10:11 AM
I may be completely wrong but his question is in regards to destruction of a substance using a microwave not how to make conversions.
Talking about how to convert powders and various illegal substances is NOT tolerated! Do not ask for supply kits or anything else that can be perceived as "steroid paraphernalia" and do not post links to those sites that supply such products.

Can't we just all be friends? I mean were all in it for the same thing, right?

Maybe because pretty much anything that can be done in a microwave can also be done using hot water or boiling water. The end result is the same and if it doesn't destroy it then it would be a perfectly fine addition to the heating methods.not arguing at all, but who would really use a microwave in this situation when over EVERY board it says somewhere that running the vial under hot water or putting it in semi-boiling water will work.

Good, apparently people need to have all of the answers before asking the questions. You can take your attitude elsewhere as far as i'm concerned.

I don't use the microwave much anymore outsite of heating water or popcorn. use the stove a lot more now than I did a year ago. Wonder how true it is about the protein though. That would definitely change how i reheat and heat some foods now.

When I was in grammar school I did a science experiment where I grew plants with stove boiled versus microwave boiled water. If I remember right the water boiled on the stove plants grew much better or sprouted better or something. maybe you guys wanna try it on your own

Microwave will kill the good enzymes in food, anong with protein.
03-13-2009, 04:55 PM
Is there anything to pull up regarding this? this is the first i'm hearing of microwaving killing anything moreso than regular heat when preparing foods.
03-13-2009, 04:57 PM

My concern with the microwave would be two things relating to the fact that you won't have a constant high temp for a long period of time but an ever increasing temp. At some temperature it will break down, and also it may be possible to heat the amps enough that they would explode if closed. I think the food thing would be a negligible issue if you already cooked your food and are just reheating it, so what if .5% of the protein gets lost from 30 seconds or something. Maybe if you were cooking steaks in the microwave WHY WOULD YOU EVER DO THIS then it might matter.

i dunno...i cook most of my meals like a week in advance and freeze em...then micro later....i make great gains still....i cant imagine im hurting the food too much...but then again....mabye thats why i dont look like ronnie yet....

"FDA recommends that microwave ovens not be used in home canning. It is believed that neither microwave ovens nor conventional ovens produce or maintain temperatures high enough to kill the harmful bacteria that occur in some foods while canning."

All that attitude over a microwave question is a bit much; particularly because the end result would be the same.
