    Physiological Properties and Effects
    5-Etioallocholen-3b,7b,17b-triol: More commonly known as androstenetriol, 5-etioallocholen-3 beta-7 beta-17beta-triol is a metabolite of the ubiquitous endogenous steroid, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). DHEA is one of the most abundant endogenous steroids in the human body, playing a critical role in a number of bodily functions. These functions include, though are not limited to, serving as an intermediate (a middle piece) in the synthesis of sex steroids such as testosterone and estrogen, up-regulating (increasing) immune response and countering the immunosuppressive actions of corticosteroids, and maybe the most impressive, directly and strongly suppressing the release of cortisol itself!

    Though DHEA’s properties have been well-established and understood for decades, derivatives and metabolites of DHEA have more recently been the subject of research in animals and humans – demonstrating effects that are, at times, many orders of magnitude more significant than the parent compound (up to 100x as potent!).

    Like DHEA, cortisol is one of the body’s most abundant and important endogenous steroids. While detailing in full the expansive list of cortisol’s functions is impossible, we can generally say that cortisol’s role in the human body is to break down bodily tissue and nutrients for the purpose of energy provision (to be catabolic), to act as an immunosuppressive, and to regulate blood sugar. Cortisol fulfills these functions by inducing gluconeogenesis (the breakdown of non-glucose intermediates, such as amino acids in muscle tissue, into glucose) and glycogenolysis (the breakdown of glycogen into glucose), inhibiting peripheral glucose utilization, and inhibiting cell lines critical to the body’s immune response.
    In less complex terms, we can simply say that cortisol is responsible for inhibiting many of the processes that we as fitness enthusiasts want to start, and for starting many of the processes that we want to inhibit. Cortisol plays a role in:
    • Preventing our muscle cells from uptaking glucose (inducing insulin resistance).
    • Preventing muscle protein synthesis.
    • The breakdown of glycogen (the compound responsible for that “full look”).
    • Suppressing the immune processes involved in muscle growth.
    While these are necessary functions, their overexpression is precisely the opposite of what we want – in fact, certain trials in humans have shown that an increase in plasma cortisol within the physiologic range increases proteolysis (breakdown of proteins) and degrades whole body amino acid synthesis! That is bad, bad news.

    Enter DHEA and its metabolite, androstenetriol. In emerging animal literature, both androstenetriol and its metabolites have been shown to possess very potent anti-glucocorticoid activity – remembering that cortisol is the parent compound for this group – and anti-immunosuppressive actions in a number of different tissue types. In fact, androstenetriol is one of the most potent anti-glucocorticoids the body produces – exerting almost unbelievable effects in certain pro-inflammatory cell lines.

    Perhaps most importantly, despite its relationship in synthesizing sex hormones, it is important to note that androstenetriol, nor any of its metabolites, does not convert to testosterone or other anabolic banned substances. This means no failed urine drug tests and no side effects associated with hormones.

    KSM-66® Full-spectrum Ashwagandha root extract (5% Withanolides): Withania somnifera Dunal, colloquially known as Winter Cherry or Indian Ginseng, is an herb that features prominently in the traditional Indian medicinal system of Ayurveda. Known as Ashwagandha in Ayurveda, Withania somnifera is a critical ingredient in various Ayurvedic tonics and tinctures prepared as a traditional remedy for the treatment of various ailments.

    Recently identified as a potent adaptogenic and target for therapeutic applications, Ashwaghanda has been the subject of numerous animal, pre-clinical, and clinical trials designed to examine its potential effects as an antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic, anxiolytic, antibacterial, antifungal, and immonumodulating compound. Ashwaghanda’s broad therapeutic potential is hypothesized to be the result of its robust phytochemical profile, including a wide swath of alkaloids, sitoindosides, and the highly biologically active withanolide group. As the principally biologically active compounds within Ashwaghanda, withanolides such as withanone, withaferine A, withanolides A, D, and G have been identified, isolated, and extensively studied in the various applications noted above.

    In recognition of the potential physiological benefits of withanolides, Core Nutritionals selected KSM-66® to include in its HARD formula. KSM-66® is a full-spectrum Ashwaghanda extract, standardized for 5% withanolides – meaning that KSM-66® not only includes the full range of biologically active compounds within Ashwaghanda, but also that it contains the highest currently available concentration of the principally active withanolides (5%).

    The high concentrations of withanolides within KSM-66® has resulted in encouraging results in a number of human, clinical trials – particularly considering many of these trials were conducted using the methodological gold standard of randomization, double-blind delivery, and placebo control. Amongst the most impressive results contained in these trials:
    • A 27.9% reduction in serum cortisol levels, measured over 60 days in a trial featuring 64 chronically stressed adults.
    • Statistically significant increases to endurance and stamina, as measured by VO2 max, in a clinical trial featuring 50 healthy, exercise-trained adults.
    • Increased measures of well-being as reported by self-assessment scales, included in both the clinical trials mentioned above.
    • Statistically significant increases in serum testosterone levels in a clinical trial featuring 68 infertile men.
    Though each of these results is impressive, perhaps the most significant is the 27.9% reduction in cortisol seen in the 60 day trial. As detailed above, cortisol possesses a multitude of potentially degradative physiological effects, including: inhibiting glucose uptake, causing a constriction of the vasculature (vasoconstriction), the breakdown of glycogen, and inarguably the result most would desire to avoid, proteolysis (the breakdown of muscle tissue).
    To put it the simplest way possible, cortisol’s chief functions involve either turning on, or shutting off, the very things we as fitness enthusiasts want to avoid or turn on, respectively!
    N-Coumaroyldopamine: N-Coumaroyldopamine is a natural analogue to the phytochemical N-Caffeoyldopamine, itself found prominently in various plants, including cocoa (Theobroma cacao L.). N-Coumaroyldopamine, its parent compounds, and other analogs that derive from its parent compound, have recently been the subject of phytochemical analyses due to their chemical similarity to sympathomimetic amines known to couple to the beta-2-adrenergic receptor.

    Phytochemical analyses were subsequently designed to assess the potency of N-Coumaroyldopamine and N-Caffeoyldopamine as beta-2-adrenergic receptor agonists – or, in simpler terms, their ability to “turn on” the fabled beta-2-adrenergic receptor. In these trials, the phytochemicals were shown to be as potent as several well-known beta-2-adrenergic receptor agonists (salbutamol, procaterol, and fenoterol). You read that correctly: N-Coumaroyldopamine and N-Caffeoyldopamine were found to bind as tightly to the beta-2-adrenergic receptor as well known synthetic compounds!
    The desirability of activating the beta-2-adrenergic receptor arises due to the critical role that beta-2-adrenertic receptors play in both skeletal muscle and fat metabolic function. In particular, beta-2-adrenergic receptors have been shown to induce dilation in the vasculature (vasodilation – the process involved in a “pump”), increase oxygen uptake and nutrient transport to skeletal muscle, regulate thermogenesis (the production of body heat), inhibit the pro-adipogenic (fat constructing) effects of other adrenergic receptor types, as well as directly increase lipolysis and the oxidation of fatty acids – the literal burning of fat tissue.

    Beta-2-adrenergic receptors achieve these effects via one of the body’s key chemical messengers, known as cAMP (cyclic adenosine monophosphate). cAMP works as a sort of cell-type translator and foreman: it receives an input from, say, a receptor such as the beta-2-adrenergic receptor, and then communicates and directs the types of cells that the beta-2-adrenergic receptor would like to target.

    Just within the context of beta-2-adrenergic agonism, this amounts to cAMP increasing resting metabolic rate and caloric expenditure (the amount of calories you burn), improving peripheral sensitivity to glucose and glucose utilization, reduction of gluconeogenesis, induction of AMPk (adenosine monophosphate kinase) release, triggering of lipolysis (the literal burning of fat tissue we spoke about earlier), the inhibition of lipogenesis (the creation of fat tissue), and vasodilation.

    Or, in other words, cAMP is involved in nearly every beneficial physiological process that a lifter, runner, hiker, jumper, runner, tumbler, and fumbler would want. cAMP is involved in:
    • Increasing bloodflow (“pump”).
    • Reducing muscle protein usage (catabolism).
    • Increasing muscle protein synthesis.
    • Increasing adipose utilization.
    To say that cAMP is a desirable compound to increase the release of – which activating the beta-2-adrenergic receptor does – would qualify as the understatement of the year!
    3,3'-Diindolylmethane (DIM): What we typically refer to as “Estrogen,” is in fact a group of three biologically distinct hormones – estradiol (E2), estrone (E1), and estriol (E3), each possessing different activities in different cell, tissue, and receptor types. When experts refer to either the benefits or downfalls of “estrogen," they really mean to (but probably cannot) identify a specific estrogen.

    These specific estrogens, in turn, metabolize into even more specific estrogen sub-compounds, such as the 2-hydroxyestrogens (2-OHE’s), 2-methoxyestrogens, 16a-hydroxyestrone (16-OHE1), and 4-hydroxyestrogens (4-OHE’s). As their parent estrogens, these estrogen metabolites exert different effects depending upon the tissue and cell one is examining. In fact, two estrogen metabolites in particular, 16-OHE1 and 2-OHE, have such contrasting cellular activities that 2-OHE is an estrogen antagonist. Yes, that is correct: there is an anti-estrogen, estrogen.

    In recent years, so-called “phytonutrients” have become the focus of clinical research, as these natural compounds have shown the ability to increase the ratio of good, estrogen decreasing estrogens (such as 2-OHE), to bad, estrogen increasing estrogens (such as 16-OHE1). One of these phytonutrients, a dietary indole known as indole-3-carbinol (I3C), is the bioactive phytochemical and a presumed modulator of reduced cancer risk in areas with high cruciferous vegetable consumption. Unfortunately, despite its potent antiestrogenic activity, I3C is highly molecularly unstable, and therefore unsuitable for use as a therapeutic agent or dietary supplement.

    Luckily, however, I3C readily metabolizes into the secondary indole 3,3’ diindolylmethane, or DIM for short. When used in a supplemental fashion in clinical trials, DIM appears to possess all the positive effects of its parent compound with respect to antiestrogenic action – promoting the metabolism of beneficial estrogens that themselves reduce estrogenic activity.

    Aside from its healthy-estrogen promoting abilities, DIM also exerts its own direct physiological effects, including:
    • Promoting pathways of internal estrogen metabolism that favour the production of anti-estrogen estrogens.
    • Adjusting the activity of certain cytochrome enzymes, reducing the activity at the estrogen receptor site.
    • Limit the cell division and growth of certain estrogens.
    Despite the bodybuilding community’s single-minded crusade to eliminate estrogen wherever it lie in wait, compounds such as DIM show us that estrogen is a very diverse set of compounds – and that we should actively pursue increasing certain estrogens that have beneficial, and ironically, anti-estrogenic effects.

    L-Theanine: Though the literature surrounding L-theanine is still emerging, the amino acid is slowly building a reputation as one of the most interesting and exciting compounds being targeted for therapeutic use. L-theanine is an amino acid found almost exclusively in tea, constituting approximately 1-2% of the dry weight of tea – resulting in a 25–60 mg theanine load per 200 ml serving of liquid tea.

    First identified in green tea and in the mushroom Xerocomus badius, L-theanine readily crosses the blood-brain barrier in a dose-dependent manner, and it is thought to influence the central nervous system (CNS) through a variety of mechanisms, including:
    • Increasing the release and concentration of dopamine.
    • Inhibiting glutamate reuptake and blockade of glutamate receptors in the hippocampus.
    • Increasing gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA – a neurotransmitter associated with the regulation of responses) concentrations.
    • Increasing levels of serotonin.
    In addition to these more well-demonstrated effects, emerging electroencephalography trials on theanine suggest that the amino acid may exert a positive effect on alpha waves – a type of brain wave implicated in restful relaxation. Alpha activity has also been associated with increased creativity, increased performance under stress, and improved learning and concentration, as well as decreased anxiety.

    Not really, Reason being my weightloss stalled for the first time in 4 weeks, so my kcals are pretty low (around 1800) not too much mentally going to be postivie on a 18+ week cut and on low kcals. basically living off protein and veggies and a bit of carbs (lowest my kcals have ever been) if in a surplus i am sure the effects would be more noticeable. Right now just putting in work and trying to tighten up. Core hard is really aiding in my mirror progress and cant wait to see what the final look is.

    Core Hard Final Review

    Claims

    Advanced Recomposition and Hardening Agent
    Reduce Cortisol by 27%
    Help balance the enzyme of estrogen
    assist in the maintenance of healthy weight in combination of diet and exercise
    Activat the key beta-2-adrenergic receptor involved in bodycomposition.
    Promote better well being.



    Change in Mood/Energy

    My mood and energy was hit or miss as I was approaching 4-5 months of cutting (From start to finish of running 1 bottle of Core Hard). Being I was also on a stim-free period and only using caffeine once in a blue moon I felt I had a small pick me up since utilizing Core Hard and the effects on my workouts. Over the span of the log my volume increased throughout the mesocycle I was running and more volume when cutting and doing cardio 4+ months into cutting can add up and take a toll on your mood/energy and overall performance. I really never felt a drop throughout the log except for when I would hit new lows or my calories got cut half way through the log which made a difference in the grand scheme of things. Overall I would say Core Hard gave a slight increase in mood/energy but nothing really to note on much.

    Effects on Weight Training/Cardio

    Being a recomp agent I noticed that my weight training and cardio did not change much if any at all, seeing that this plays a major role on appearance again I would give a slight credit to the product especially because cardio never felt harder (and it did not change the entire log to keep it a constant variable) the only change in weight training was a slight increase in volume over the 4 weeks of use for the bottle. Nearly a few additional sets on isolations and main movemements over the span of the long as my workotus vary from week to week in volume and progressively getting heavier as the weeks go on based on the mesocycle I am currently on and what Inov8ElitePerformance outlines (as my training coaches). Overall pleased with this especially for how long I have been in a deficit and cutting.

    Change in Mirror










    The main factor here, even though for the month I ran it I dropped a few pounds (170 to my lowest of 166.4) I felt this showed major change in the mirror. A few pounds in a month looked much harder, my legs had much more definition, my hamstrings started to show separation, and my Upperbody continued to chisel up and get defined. Core Hard lives up to its name when the word “Hard” is used as far as appearance goes. Especially cutting this is a major edge to help solidify your look and give you extra definition and cuts when trying to reach new levels of leanness. I Say doug miller did an excellent job on this product and this lives up to its claims. Even only shedding a touch of weight over the long duration the mirror showed much difference and the pictures show the results from start to finish and how much change was seen in the mirror.

    Thank you again to Doug Miller, Kirk, and Jon from Core Nutritionals for the opportunity to try, log, and demonstrate what Core Hard can do.

    Thank you guys. Glad i could assist in trying out Core Hard.
    This stuff is the real deal as expected because Core is one of the most overlooked brands on the market.

    You're ice cream pics always seal the deal...in.

    Core Hard is no ****ing joke..love the stuff, I sweat like crazy, get some interesting pumps from it and good strength gains. Also CoreHard just puts you in a good mood, one of the best products I've tried in a very long time as well being probably the best recomp product I've ever used.

    As Marc ( Lobliner ) says, Doug Miller is a no bull**** kind of guy and with that being said I agree with you 100% Core nutritionals is so overlooked it's not even funny.
