    Anabolic Innovations Presents:


    * Promotes muscle mass, strength and endurance.
    * Encourages fat loss and prevents fat accumulation.
    * Improves recovery time by rapid glycogen resynthesis.
    * Provides lasting “pump”, hardness and vascularity.
    * Drives amino acid and creatine uptake in muscle.
    * Increases muscle protein synthesis and inhibits breakdown.
    * Controls blood sugar and maximizes nutrient utilization.
    * Potent synergism with endogenous endocrine hormones.
    * Strong anti-oxidant protects liver, lipid and cardio health.

    Glycobol works, not like typical muscle gainers, but primarily by it’s ability to mimic and boost insulin. On it’s own, insulin is a powerful growth peptide, but it also plays a critical role in the action of androgens. Just like insulin, androgens are another fundamental class of endocrine hormones. Studies show that androgens fail to sustain a positive muscle nitrogen balance in the absence of insulin, emphasizing the critical role of insulin as a potential limiting factor to the anabolic capacity of androgens. Therefore, Glycobol could be combined with any of the commercially available androgens to optimize and exaggerate gains by it’s essential synergistic contribution.

    Insulin also interacts synergistically with GH, IGF and thyroid hormones to compound growth effects, even when these endocrine co-factors are only present at average physiological levels. Therefore, Glycobol can be used to achieve impressive natural muscle gains and body recomposition as an effective stand-alone agent too.

    You asked for something Innovative, now you’ve got it!

    Glycobol Blend:

    Sodium R-Lipoate (Na-r-ALA)
    ALA is naturally produced in the body as a mitochondrial enzyme cofactor. It is important to aerobic metabolism. ALA has been shown to increase cellular uptake of glucose to cell membranes by recruiting the glucose transporter GLUT4. ALA improves skeletal muscle glucose transport, resulting in desirable blood glucose disposal and increased muscle glycogen concentrations. (1) Studies also indicate that in muscle, ALA is a potent anti-oxidant which protects cells from oxidative stress-induced insulin resistance. (2) The ALA used in this formula is chemically stabilized and of the highest quality. It’s the most active isomer and the highest potency salt commercially available. ALA is an invaluable addition that offers a multitude of benefits plus countless extras for any serious athlete.

    Bottom Line: Best way to describe this effect is that it almost adds a filter to the muscle fibers; Taking in what it needs to prepare for growth.

    Trigonella Seed isolate (standardized to 10% 4-hydroxyisoleucine)
    Fenugreek has been successfully applied for thousands of years to improve health. It corrects blood sugar problems and improves cholesterol scores. Modern research also shows that it improves endurance and lowers blood lactate concentrations dramatically. Treatment with fenugreek seed can also significantly decreases fat accumulation. These results suggest that this improvement in endurance and reduction in body fat is caused by an increase in the utilization of fatty acids as an energy source. (3) Fenugreek supplements high in 4-HIL have also been demonstrated to increase post-exercise glycogen resynthesis in athletes, which promotes rapid recovery and helps prevent training fatigue. (4) The visible results of this glycogenic effect are big, pumped muscles that look extremely full and vascular.

    Bottom Line: Helps you use fatty acids as an energy source, rather than store them as Fat!

    Phellodendron extract (standardized to 90% berberine)
    Phellodendron is one of the highly valued traditional Chinese herbs, used medicinally to treat a variety of health conditions. It is reported that some subjects show improved strength, lower blood pressure, and lower blood sugar in response to Phellodendron isolates. Laboratory studies suggest that one of these alkaloidal isolates called berberine may accomplish these benefits by enhancing insulin production. (5) There are also many studies that suggest berberine can reduce total serum cholesterol, dangerous LDL-cholesterol, and unhealthy triglycerides, which would obviously contribute greatly to increased athletic performance and good over-all health. (6) Improved health and increased physical performance translates into greater strength and muscle gains in the gym.

    Bottom Line: Increased performance translates into greater strength and muscle gains.

    Cinnamon Bark 20:1 extract (standardized for 16% flavonoids)
    Cinnamon is a common spice used all over the world, but it’s not commonly known that the spice has significant therapeutic value. Cinnamon contains the element chromium, which is needed for proper glucose metabolism, and also compounds called flavonoids. Flavinoids are potent anti-oxidants which are known to provide protection against cancer and heart disease. The specific flavonoids found in cinnamon bark are shown to stimulate glucose uptake and glycogen synthesis similar to insulin. These flavonoids may activate receptors by direct insulin mimicking action, or indirect insulin potentiation, or both. (7) Studies also show that cinnamon improves lipid profiles for some subjects. (8) If you train consistently and have a healthy diet, your big muscular improvements from this powerful little cinnamon extract might surprise you.

    Bottom Line: Insulin is very anabolic, so the insulin boosting action of cinnamon extract will be bigger, stronger muscles.

    Bis(Maltolato)Oxovanadium (BMOV)
    BMOV is an organic form of the mineral vanadium. Although elemental vanadium and inorganic salts of vanadium show significant biological potential, it has a poor therapeutic index due to low gastrointestinal absorbance. BMOV is recognized as safer, more absorbable, and able to deliver a therapeutic effect up to 50% greater than the inorganic forms. (9) Vanadium is one of the rare microelements that can promote a profound boost in endurance and strongly support anabolism. BMOV can give muscles a hardness like you have never experience before. The form of vanadium used in this formula is one of the very best you can find, if not the best.

    *Bottom Line: Makes your Muscle harder than ever, increases vascularity!

    Anabolic Innovations was nice enough to hook me up with a bottle of the new Glycobol! Has a nice little ingredient profile! Stuff definitely looks promising! As some of you know I just came off of "The One" from AN. I am about in the 2nd week of PCT. I have maintained my strength with Prime and even gone up a little bit.
    Supps I am using now:

    Prime at 6 caps/day
    Adam at 2 caps/day
    2nd gear at 1 cap pre bed
    Poseidon with 1 scoop intra aid intra w/o

    I have been using these supps for a while and will notice any new changes in my body comp, strength, endurance, health or mood. Those of you who know me know I am honest with my feedback and dont BS my logs. So if you are interested in seeing what Glycobol can do, sit back and enjoy the ride! Hopefully this log will help you decide whether Glycobol is for you!

    My goal at the moment is to "recomp". I'm not particularly interested in gaining strength at the moment but cutting fat while, at the least, maintaining strength. But, of course, any strength gains are welcomed! I just spent the last 3 months bulking and added on 16lbs. I accumulated some bf in the process and now its time to shed it off. When it comes to cutting for me, I like slow and steady. Glycobol has some insulin mimicking effects. So I will be taking it 30 mins pre meals (2x/day). I do work out first thing in the morning. So I will be getting some WMS to throw in my intra w/o drink.

    So my plan of action:

    1. Wake up and take 2 Glycobol
    2. Make my intra drink
    3. Wait 30 mins and start sipping on my drink, while heading to the gym.
    4. Take my other 2 Glycobol for my 3rd or 4th meal.

    The Glycobol has been mailed already and will be here shortly. I will have pics taken and put up the first day of the log.

    Let the party begin!!

  13. gl Metroba. Interested to see how this works.
    Mr. Supps Board Rep

  14. I'd be interested to try some samples of this stuff. It looks like somewhat of a hybrid between AP and SLIN, although I don't believe I've ever heard of trigonella.

  15. This is going to be a fun ride!!!

    Posted from my mobile device.

  16. i'm in. should be interesting.

  17. I would love to see someone who does not usually respond to the AP, Pslin, nutrient repartioning supplements to give this a try.

  18. Happy Easter!! I'm in for the ride. Can't wait 'til mine gets here the 14th!!

  19. G-Bol! Subbddd

    The most common trigonella is fenugreek.

  21. Ah, okay. I've taken fenugreek.

  22. In to see your results. GL, metroba!
