I want to start this log off by saying thanks to Vaughn at iForce for giving me the chance to test JointHelp. I've been dealing with a broken foot after a comically stupid longboarding injury and need to heal up before fire academy begins.
This is the ingredient list on :
Serving Size: 2 capsules Servings Per Container: 60
Amount Per Serving
(Bioactive 14-Neo-Andro Compound)
(Standardized For 10% Total Ketosterones)
The instructions are to take 2 servings a day spaced 6-8 hrs apart with a meal for general joint help. For immediate pain/inflammation the instructions are to take 2 servings on an empty stomach then consume a meal within 30-45 min. I'm following the general joint repair dosage.
I just took my first dosage an hour ago with pills and a protein powder shake mixed with about a cup of coconut milk. Being that it is a joint supplement I can't say I feel any noticeable effects yet.
For anyone curious about what ParActin is here you go. First off, ParActin it is actually a proprietary extract of the relatively esoteric TCM and Ayurvedic herb known as Andrographis paniculata. Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center has a comprehensive analysis of the mechanism of action and general overview which you can google.
For those who don't want to google and read all kinds of articles and abstracts about Andrographis, it is a extensively researched anti-inflammatory that acts on many different pathways. Most notably is its' ability to inhibit and cause the suicide of certain cancer cells such as prostate tumors, colon tumors, and hepatomas (liver cancer cells). The active constituents of Andrographis are diterpenoid lactones and Andrographolides; which are similar to anti-inflammatory eleutherosides found in another well known adaptogen, Eleuthero.
From an initial glance it appears that iForce has a great product with solid reasoning behind it. Both ingredient dosages also appear to be effective amounts compared to competitors products. I"m stoked to be logging this product and will be glad to answer anyone's questions.
