  1. Truthornothin's Ursobolic Log The Whole Truth and Nothing But the Truth!


    I started Ursobolic this morning.

    I am a 46 year old maleI've been working out for approximately 20+ years

    6'1" 204 lbs
    Measurements:

    Bi's: 18" Right 17.75" Left

    Chest 49'

    stomach 34

    Thighs 26.5

    BF 8%




    My diet is on the low carb side but not totally carb deficient

    Macros: 50%protein 25%carbs 25% fat, I vary my diet according to my look. If I am looking flat I bump up the carbs and reduce the fats, if I feel that I am gaining fat I drop the carbs,



    I just came off ostarine. I am using this in PCT in hopes of maintaining my gains and becoming perhaps leaner or at the very least able to eat a reasonable amount without losing my definition. I just came off a cut and unfortunately a bad personal situation wreck my last week, so I am not as lean as I was the week prior. Need 50 post to post pics? I've already posted pics some time ago I am puzzled on this one, guess I had better start posting

    I am going to run this for 8 weeks at the 9 cap a day dosage.
    I intend to try to recomp perhaps gaining a few pounds of muscle while losing a little more fat. I think for this compound the camera will be the best judge of results. I will post weekly pics after week 2. That is going to be the difficult part of this log getting through two weeks of no expected results.


    Observations:
    Today just started taking Ursobolic and appetite is definitely reduced. Could be placebo effect as I was expecting that. I also noticed I was hot as hell at work and sweating like a pig, have the ac on now and still sweating. It appears this stuff has an immediate effect on core temp. That, I wasn't expecting.

    Will not log diet today as basically I didn't eat, still stressed over my personal issue drank 5 protein shakes 50 grams each whey only

    Took my Ursobolic doses with 2 tbsp of natty peanut butter each.

    Workout:

    Back and bi's
    very heavy, No cardio Truthornothin' does not do cardio. Tomorrow will post pics and will be back on track nutritionally will post detailed nutrition intake as I weigh my food so this'll be pretty precise. Hope some of you sign on for the ride.

  7. Nice update. And glad to see you will be posting before and after pictures (no homo)
    I hope you are sticking to your regular diet... That way we could gauge the effects solely from Ursobolic

    Or are you going to change it up much?

    Pics are important, without them you can say anything you want, pics are the proof. My diet I actually intend to increase calories after week 2 to intentionally test the effects of this compound I can cut on my own with out a supp if I just have to cut my calories. I am hoping I can be looser with my diet and still keep my abs, that would be worth the price Ya' know?

    The anti-arthritic effect of ursolic acid on zymosan-induced acute inflammation and adjuvant-induced chronic arthritis models.

    Abstract
    Ursolic acid (UA) is pentacyclic triterpenoic acid that naturally occurs in many medicinal herbs and plants. In this study, we examined the possible suppressive effect of UA extracted from Oldenlandia diffusa on zymosan-induced acute inflammation in mice and complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA)-induced arthritis in rats. UA treatment (per oral) dose-dependently (25-200 mg kg(-1)) suppressed zymosan-induced leucocyte migration and prostaglandin E2 (PGE(2)) production in the air pouch exudates. Since the maximal effective dose of UA was 50 mg kg(-1) in the zymosan experiment, we used this dose of UA in a subsequent study using an adjuvant-induced rheumatoid arthritis model. UA treatment (50 mg kg(-1), per oral, once a day for 10 days) was started from day 12 after adjuvant injection. UA dramatically inhibited paw swelling, plasma PGE(2) production and radiological changes in the joint caused by CFA injection. Moreover, UA significantly suppressed the arthritis-induced mechanical and thermal hyperalgesia as well as the spinal Fos expression, as determined by immunohistochemistry, which was increased by CFA injection. In addition, overall anti-arthritic potency of UA was comparable with ibuprofen (100 mg kg(-1), oral) while UA did not induce significant gastric lesions as compared with the ibuprofen treatment group. These findings strongly suggest that UA is a useful suppressive compound for rheumatoid arthritis treatment with low risk of gastric problems.

    Protective effect of ursolic acid on ethanol-mediated experimental liver damage in rats.

    Abstract
    Ursolic acid is a triterpenoid that exists in nature and is the major component of some traditional medicinal herbs. In this study, ursolic acid has been evaluated for its hepatoprotective effect against chronic ethanol-mediated toxicity in rats. Ethanol administration (7.9 g/kg/day) for 60 days resulted in increased oxidative stress, decreased antioxidant defense and liver injury. It also negatively affected the serum total protein, albumin and A/G ratio. Subsequent to the experimental induction of toxicity (i.e. after the initial period of 30 days) ursolic acid treatment performed by co-administering ursolic acid (10, 20 and 40 mg/kg body weight) for 30 days along with the daily dose of ethanol. While this treatment causing a significant improvement in body weight, food intake and serum protein levels, it decreases serum aminotransferase activities (aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase) and total bilirubin levels. Ursolic acid improved the antioxidant status of alcoholic rats, which is evaluated by the decreased levels of lipid peroxidation markers in plasma (thiobarbituric acid reactive substances and lipid hydroperoxides) and increased levels of circulatory antioxidants such as reduced glutathione, ascorbic acid and alpha-tocopherol. Histopathological observations were also in correlation with the biochemical parameters. The activity of ursolic acid (20 mg/kg) compares well with silymarin, a known hepatoprotective drug, and seems to be better in certain parameters. The protective effect of ursolic acid is probably related to its antioxidant activities.

    Nothing new to report, just minor appetite suppression and the sweats. Is anybody else noticing this. I am taking it as a good sign something is happening especially since it was unanticipated . More tomorrow folks

  27. Anti Cancer Study, Showing COX2 suppression by ursolic acid. Appears some serious anti-inflammatory action here

    Abstract

    We investigated the effects of ursolic acid, a chemopreventive agent, on the expression of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) in phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA)-treated human mammary and oral epithelial cells. Treatment with ursolic acid suppressed PMA-mediated induction of COX-2 protein and synthesis of prostaglandin E2. Ursolic acid also suppressed the induction of COX-2 mRNA by PMA. Nuclear run-offs revealed increased rates of COX-2 transcription after treatment with PMA, an effect that was inhibited by ursolic acid. Transient transfections indicated that the effects of PMA were mediated by a cyclic AMP response element in the COX-2 promoter. Ursolic acid inhibited PMA-mediated activation of protein kinase C, extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2, c-Jun N-terminal kinase, and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinases. Treatment with PMA increased activator protein-1 activity and the binding of c-Jun to the cyclic AMP response element of the COX-2 promoter, effects that were blocked by ursolic acid. These data are important for understanding the anticancer and anti-inflammatory properties of ursolic acid.
