well, I've been a part of a company that once put out a bogus product, but there were more issues than that going on, lol.
I can understand how reps for sl must feel, I dont know the owner, so im just like, sucks.
I didn't purchase any of their products, and now probably never will. again, sucks.

I ran the Alpha One and loved how I felt on it. Always felt alpha, wanted to bang my girl 3 times a day, and didn't feel any shutdown. It makes sense that the gains were a little less than what I had gotten out of SD, which I hands-down stated was harder on me (anybody that has run SD knows it can hurt).
Having said that, I ended my log after about 3 weeks when I bridged into Stano (bought from a diff company, thankfully). I've been on the Stano for about 6 weeks and I think I'm going to run a quick 3 week cycle of SD at the tail end. Hell, I thought a lot about the fact that M1A was easier than SD. The idea never made sense to me.
Thanks for the info jbry. I'll be submitting for my refund immediately.

Shedded Labs seems to at least be taking care of the issue. Maybe they were sold a bad batch of raws or something. Hard to tell what could of happened. I highly doubt they would knowingly sell a bunk product it would just hurt their reputation. Hopefully they will take extra precautions in the future.

In SL's defense, I contacted them a few weeks ago through their website requesting a refund for the bottle of alpha-1 I purchased. The owner, Brett I believe, was really prompt with his reply. Asked me to fwd a proof of purchase, I emailed a screenshot of my order from lockout from my account there, and I had a check from SL for 34.95 within the week that cashed no problem. Guy was fast, helpful, and seemed like he wanted to redeem the company's image. Not gonna lie, I'm a little leery of running the TUDCA I purchased from them now... but I figure I'll have to relegate it to a weaker methyl cycle to play it safe and I'll let the bloodwork dictate if the rest of the bottles are to be trusted.
Sucks that I have a bottle of what could be one of the best strength boosters on the current market on my shelf, or it could just be a bottle of dhea. At least its free, but it is a bit scary just experimenting with an unknown substance. Maybe I'll use it to kick a longer 1/4/19dhea cycle later in the year. Worse case scenario I have mad boners for the first 4 wks I guess. Or 6lbs of muscle in 3wks.

I have 2 bottles of Alpha 1 from competitive edge laboratories.
What can I expect from 60mg/day for 4 weeks?

Depends on if it's bunk or not. If its pure dhea you're prob gonna get some boners and maybe some bloat if you take enough. If it's the real deal you might faint from high bp or have your liver start aching at that dose. Why start at a hardcore dose when you don't even know what recommended feels like? Start at suggested dose til you're positive your on and its not dhea, then up dose at your discretion.
Stuff is supposedly tough on liv and can aromatize so liv, cycle support and and AI should be in the picture from the star here obv, which is why it's so disappointing if it's bunk - wasted time and product; best to have another steroid or pro on hand to switch to if it turns out its bunk so you can at least cycle as planned.

He's got CEL brand.
R1 - reach out to a CEL rep to check your batch number. Lot of fake CEL going around these days, so I'd still be skeptical unless you bought it and stored it when CEL was in its prime (with PH).
When I used SL Alpha One, I felt like I was on but with limited sides. I didn't mind the DHEA at all, for the record. It was definitely boner city, and I felt good while on it. Truthfully, it made me reconsider using hard methyls.

Someone told me if it has a white top it's bunk?
I know they did used to use black caps, so I'm not sure there's any merit to that claim or not.
I bought these 1.5 to 2 years ago.

smh, I missed the CEL part in the very first sentence of your post
Just the SL that was bunk. As others have said heard of bunk CEL around now but just like the SL stuff if you start blowin up after a week I'd roll with it and supplement accordingly.

Just wanted to report that my CEL Alpha 1 was legit.
I'm up 5lb in less than a week, with the distictive "tight" feeling all day long. Major appetite increases as well. Definitely not plecebo.
I have never seen a designer oral work this fast, not even SD. This is only 40mg too (2 caps a day).
By the time I come off this, the test cyp should be fully in gear.

60mg has to be insane, but I'll probably just stick with 40mg for 4 weeks and keep my 1 other bottle for a later time.
02-26-2013, 08:26 PM
I would def try to obtain a legit clone. I haven't been in the designer game too long, but IMO alpha one was probably the only designer that ever came close to SD in terms of potency.
Unless you want to go way way back. I have no idea what was on the market 10 years ago.

Shame about SL, they had some great prices and nice products. Too bad the bunk stigma has probably ruined them in a lot of people's eyes. I hope they can turn it around

I bought shredded's oxy elite clone. It didn't do anything. I worked up to 8 at one time. Nothing. Contacted them. The reply was that the batch was underdosed and a link to where I could buy more. I bought some stano 300 a year later. Label claims 300mg of stano, and then fillers like mag stearate. Well, on my scale, each cap weighed 300mg. Including the capsule. They are shady to say the least. They won't get my coin again.
Everything I say is fictional and for entertainment purposes only. Do not ask me for sources. I dont have any.
