Bassgod's Pops His Sponsored Log Cherry With IBE and FORMEX!
First I would like to thank Iron Lungz and IBE for giving me this wonderful opportunity. For those of you who may not know, IBE has came out with a very innovative(go figure ) product. It's called Formex. It is Formestane, but it is Formestane Methylcyclopentylether(MCPE). It's the first oral version of Formestane that should actually do what it claims it can. It is "the next generation aromatase inhibitor/pro-anabolic compound."
Serving Size: 2 capsules
Servings Per Container: 30
Amount Per Serving: 50mg
Ingredients: Formestane MCPE
Other Ingredients: Maltrodextrin
Suggested Use: Take 2-4 capsules daily for optimal results. Do not exceed 6 capsules in a 24 hour period.
The capsules are yellow in color and size 00 I believe? At any rate, they're fairly small and won't be hard to take everyday. As you can see by the picture, the bottle/label is pretty sick looking. My initial thoughts when receiving this today were "HELLLL YEAAAA!!!!" LOL. I can't wait to take my first dose tomorrow morning! Let's see what this can do!

Here's the official write up:
IBE Formex (Formestane MCPE: 25mg per capsule)
-Rapidly Decrease Estrogens
-Skyrocket Testosterone Levels
-Ferociously Increase Libido
-Greatly Increase Free Test – Lower SHBG
-Block 5a-Reductase Activity – Prevent Hair Loss
-Ether Technology Prevents Rapid Degradation
The same company that brought you new innovations like acetylated resveratrol, 2-bromomelatonin, and Epistane IBE is proud to announce its latest innovation: Formex. The wait for the most potent anti-estrogen ever to hit the market is over. Formex is a revolution in the battle against estradiol because it utilizes one of the most potent second generation steroidal aromatase inhibitors and supercharges it by rearranging the 17B-hydroxyl group to give you the longest lasting, legal anti-estrogen. This rearrangement, called methylcyclopentyl ether (MCPE), is what allows for the incredible increase in bioavailability, allowing for a smaller dose with much greater testosterone boosting and estradiol reducing effects. Don't waste your money on regular formestane, which hastily breaks down in the body, experience IBE Formex and take your body to the next level!
What is actually in Formex?
Formex contains the MCP ether of formestane. The chemical name is 4-hydroxy-17B-(1'-methoxy)-cyclopentoxyandrost-4-en-3-one. As you can see Formex is not methylated as many of the harsher oral prohormones have become recently. The chemical structure is below:
Why would I use Formex over traditional compounds like ATD?
It actually puzzles us why ATD is such a popular compound for use in PCT. Although ATD inhibits aromatase activity it actually acts as an antagonist for the androgen receptor. What does this mean for you? It means that ATD literally prevents testosterone from binding and eliciting its anabolic effect! This is a terrible idea for use in PCT. Formex on the other hand elicits just enough of an anabolic effect that it does not suppress, yet also decreases estrogens, prevents hair loss and other unwanted androgenic effects by blocking 5a-Reductase, and decreases SHBG to raise your test levels higher than any other PCT product available!
Is Formex better than regular Formestane?
By far! IBE has corrected the problem with traditional formestane products; low bioavailability. With Formex you can now rest assured that your liver is not rapidly degrading your anti-estrogen before it ever reaches systemic circulation. How does this work? Formex resists biodegradation with a dual shield. The first defense is evasion. Typically when something is ingested it is carried through the stomach and into the small intestine where nutrients are absorbed and brought into circulation for processing. The vein responsible for this is the hepatic portal vein (HPV). As the name implies it brings blood directly to the liver for processing and is the site of regular formestane biodegradation. However, there is a loophole in this defense. The more lipophilic (fat loving) a substance is the lower the chance of it entering the HPV and the greater the chance of it entering lymphatic circulation. Since ethers cannot Hydrogen bond and a hydrocarbon group has been added, it becomes much more lipophilic. These substances can enter lacteals, make their way into the lymphatic system, bypass the liver, and reach systemic circulation before ever seeing the first sign of hepatic metabolism. This means not only can you get greater estradiol suppression but for a much longer period than before. The second defense is the MCPE in the 17b position. This group protects itself from cleavage because it is large and bulky and repels the enzyme responsible.
What can I expect with Formex?
With Formex you can expect to feel your libido skyrocket and visibly see your boat dwindle away. Plus, Formex is not only an anti-estrogen but it also has mild anabolic properties that allow for strength and muscle gains, as well as a heightened ferocity in the gym. On cycle you can expect to see a hardened physique and greatly reduced risk of forming estradiol-induced gynecomastia.
When should I use Formex?
Formex can be used anytime that you would like greatly increase your testosterone levels, decrease levels of estradiol, and increase athletic performance.
ON CYCLE: It can be used on cycle to reduce the bloat associated with aromatizing compounds or to prevent estradiol-related gynecomastia. Formex can also be used in PCT to prevent valuable testosterone from converting to estradiol. It is important to understand that the dosing regimen for Formex is much different than traditional formestane. Since it lasts longer in the body, it requires less frequent doses. In studies of cycloalkyl ether derivatives of estradiol, researchers found that these highly lipophilic substances were capable of being stored in fat and create a time released effect. Other studies have shown that formestane given parenterally at a mere 250mg inhibited the activity of aromatase >85% for 2 weeks! Since Formex enters systemic circulation similarly to formestane given parenterally you can achieve maximal results without the use of transdermals or injectables.
BRIDGE: One of the most effective uses for Formex is using it as a bridge between cycles. No need for a full, all out PCT between cycles, use Formex while recovering and prevent muscle wasting, while keeping libido elevated.
STANDALONE: Formex can be used as a standalone product to help maintain your gains throughout the year, decrease fat accumulation, keep you shredded for the summer, or give you the extra boost you need whether it be in the gym or the bedroom!
TRT: Formex can provide valuable protection against gynecomastia for those on TRT. The risk of gynecomastia while on TRT is greatly increased as the body adjusts to its surroundings by increasing circulating levels of CYP (aromatase) to combat the rapid rise in testosterone levels.

Just took my first dose(2 caps), so we'll see what happens. I'm not expecting anything for a few days at least. -3/25/09

Well today is day 2 and I am not really noticing anything different. Libido is high, bit it has been ever since my last PCT ended. I feel good as usual, no sides or anything. One thing(may be placebo and I just haven't paid attention) my skin seems to be a little more oily than normal. I mean just a tad more, nothing really even noticeable. Other than that, nothing more to note. Oh, and I took 2 caps when I woke up btw. That's my dosing scheme so far.
03-27-2009, 11:07 AM
Not sure if the Formex has anything to do with it, but last night I had the most VIVID and CRAZY dreams! The 1-carboxy used to cause this, but nothing out of the ordinary lately. Last night was just nuts though. I woke up this morning and I feel so damn good. Happy, energetic, horny, etc lol. I haven't had that deep of sleep in a really long time. Maybe it's the Formex, maybe it's a combination of the Formex and 1-carboxy, i'm not sure. We'll see what tonight holds. Today I am going to try 1 cap in the morning and 1 cap an hour pre-wo. I'll update how it goes later tonight when I get back from the gym
03-27-2009, 10:29 PM
Ugh, couldn't get a babysitter tonight, so i'll be hitting the gym tomorrow. The fiancee and I go together, so we have to get a sitter every time. It's all good, had a lot of stuff to do around the house anyway. Will update tomorrow morning after I get back from the session.

Formex Day 4: bi,fr,qd,hm,cv
Standing Cable Curls w/ EZ Attachment - 180 - 8,4,3 = 15 (+5lbs) Did 16 total using 175 last time.
Reverse EZ Curls - Skipped cuz there wasn't enough time. Had an appt with a lady for our wedding cake
Smith Squats - 365 - 6 (+10lbs)
Widowmaker - 265x20 (+10lbs)
Smith Calve Raises - 280 - 55 fast, then 20 with 4sec negs. (+10lbs)
Don't think i'm bullshytting you about the poundage increases. If anyone has ever trained DC style, you know how it goes. You gain strength literally every time you hit the gym. I ALWAYS will add weight first, and if it's too much, i'll take it back off and i'll at LEAST get an increase in reps from the last time I did an exercise. That's why it's the best program hands down IMO.
Weight - Not sure, won't be weighting myself daily as it is counter productive IMO. I will update weight weekly. Possibly every few days. I weigh myself in the morning on random days.
Libido - Same as usual(high)
Aggression(positive) - Increased a bit
Appetite - About the same
Strength - Up a little more than usual considering my pre-wo diet sucked. All I had was a 50g whey shake w/ milk, lol. Also had 4 beers last night which was dumb, but oh well. I honestly just wanted to get rid of them from my fridge haha.
Vascularity - Increased while un-pumped AND in the gym. Nothing crazy, but veins that usually only appear in the gym, are starting to be visible slightly 24/7.
Endurance - Same
Sides - Skin a tad more oily than usual, but that's it.
Overall Mood - Increased a little bit.
Pumps - Had a pretty nice pump during the squats and cable curls. Better than usual, so that was nice and definitely more noticeable.
I'm digging the Formex so far and it's comparable to TD form as of now. I'm hoping it only gets better though and surpasses TD form in overall effectiveness.
03-28-2009, 10:22 PM
Anyone know if there is a set mg for mg comparison between Formex and TD form? Or at least a rough estimate? Also, what is the 1/2 life of Formex? I may mess around with dosing and see if I notice any difference. I took 1 cap about 3hrs pre-wo and another cap 45min pre-wo today btw.
