    Request assistance - someone with Ultra 40 and a scale


    Ok...first the disclaimer - this is NOT an official "labelclaimstesting" type callout, just a concern.

    First - a recent thread revived my interest in Liver Tabs - especially in light of an obscure study that seems to point to usefulness in preventing DNP side effects.

    Second - I have always considered Beverly product of exquisite quality, so I dropped $40 on a bottle today.

    Third, I located a supplier that handles supply for the entire industry, and priced out material for whoeever decides to run with them (nutracaps, or whoever). When doing the cost analysis something wasn't ringing true.

    Now, Beverly claims 2.6 grams of 4x liver concentrate per tablet. I would have thought them to be VERY dark brown, and was surprised to see them very very light brown with little discernible odor. IN addition, that tablets were not very big. I proceeded to weigh them on, admittedly, not a high quality scale. I read 3 tablets per 5 grams, or 1.7 grams each.

    I double checked with another scale at home, and got the same reading.

    Can someone with a decent scale AND a recent bottle of Ultra 40 please weigh a tablet and tell me what you get?

    I do have a decent scale but no on the liver tabs.That said,I can't be of any help but I'd appreciate it if you'd post the study you're referring to here.

    How did I figure I would see you here?

    I'd actually like to get your take on this - I'm thinking about running an experiment VERY soon..

    I'd be happy to weigh some if I were comped a bottle.
    I do this sometimes. For example, the body octane scooper is a little low and the Clout scooper a little high.

    My scale hits 0.0mg

    Dsade,

    Have you emailed Beverly directly with this concern? They are usually refreshingly honest with replies, so it would be nice to hear their side of the story.

    Better yet, Roger and Sandy will be at the AC..... quiz them there too. lol

    FIRst I wanted someone to verifiy with a better quality scale before going any further - especially since, in this case, I would be considered a competitor.

    Interesting take Dsade. I think you're being too literal tho..
    Let me venture: the liver value=2600mcg (AS a 4x concentrate). Trying to weigh true weight, this will not equate to 2.6g, will be considerably less..
    As well, you have to take into consideration the other packaged ingredients to put this together (i.e. Cellulose, Calcium Phosphate, Magnesium Stearate, Silicon Dioxide -- fillers if you will, but necessary for production & preservation).
    Lastly, consider that Bev uses their own manufacturing facilities; these are not your run-of-the-mill liver tabs. I don't think an 'industry' insider could give you a qualified opinion to their sourcings.
    But as mentioned, Roger & Sandy are pretty helpful; I'm sure Roger would have no problem clarifying this.
    Send him an e-mail.

    Although not totally related, i found a study that showed Usnic Acid to be hepaprotective against damage done by alchohol administered at the same time, so I can definitely understand the point of the study in the PDF.

    Since this is a thread on U-40, thought I'd throw this out for clarification: (just in case anybody wondered why else they should take liver tabs.. )

    Ultra 40 liver tablets are designed for the hard training athlete who demands NOTHING BUT THE BEST! Although Ultra 40 retains the biochemical spirit of the original, its nutritional value is greater than that of whole beef liver. All of the essential amino acids are present in Ultra 40 as well as B-vitamins, heme iron, naturally occurring minerals and enzymes.

    What: Ultra 40 is a nutrient dense protein food (in tablet form) derived from raw Argentinean beef liver that is concentrated by vacuum drying at a low temperature. It is free of fats, carbohydrates, and any food additives.

    Who: Anyone who wants to increase lean body mass, people who want more energy, anyone on a restricted diet, as well as those who are clinically stressed.

    Why: Ultra 40 comes from grass fed, steroid free Argentinean beef and is the most potent liver product on the market. The concentration process removes unwanted calories and the addition of B-12 enhances protein metabolism.

    Oh, don't get me wrong at all - Liver Tabs is one product that I did notice a certain edge from - which is why the sudden re-interest.

    What I am wondering about is the label (and I just actually wanted someone with a decent scale to verify weight)...

    The label says Dessicated Liver extract 4x concentrate 2600mg.

    This means 2600 mg (or 2.6 grams) of whatever extract they are using. Add in the binders and fillers, to make the tablets stick together, and the actual tablet weight SHOULD be close to 3 grams. I am getting about 1.7 grams each.

    Steroid free beef? Aw... but I wanted the roids

    Snag you make a great sales pitch; your commentary on the ***** liver tabs got me to hold out for the Ultra-40's (Which were OOS at the time).

    I started on them yesterday, at 20 a day....I'll gauge results here, too.

    Hoping to play with that other compound mentioned above, to see what kind of validity the study has in humans (subjectively, of course).

    But that's where I'll disagree with you (and maybe I'm wrong here), but consider.. The way I read it is: 2600mcg liver AS a 4xconcentrate; so, going with your logic, I would see this as 650mcg true weight, no?
    Altho, according to your scales, this would leave approx. 1g filler weight.. you're not using your weed scales, are you?

    When in caloric deficit (like now), 5 per meal (x6 meals daily); when it gets tighter, I up that to 6.

    Should be mg, not micrograms...but the way I see it they have to indicate the true product weight (which would be 2600mg of "X excract".) If they meant is as a 4x concentrate, where a 1x concentrate WOULD be 2.6 grams (2.6 divided by 4 = 650mg, true) then they should have put 650mg OF 4x concentrate.

    And yeah, the purpose of this thread is to have someone with a GOOD ACCURATE scale do a confirmation weigh for me.

    2600mcg would only be 260mg....these are way too big for that (or they used a godawful amount of filler.)

    But of course you're right on the label..
    That'll learn me to use that website for reference..

    I still say it's as 4x concentrate, not 2600mg of 4x concentrate.
    But I see your point. I do not have an accurate enough scale to help you or I would, as I've got the bottle sitting right in front of me..

    ..you didn't just say that Easy, did you?
    HYOOOOGE difference. The amount of liver vs. Bev's is miniscule; they use a cheap whey filler for the bulk of their protein content. Hence, the reason behind the pricing disparity..
    I won't even mention the fact that, on 2 different occasions, I crapped the Uniliver's out partially dissolved. (oooops, I mentioned it..)
    Only supp I've ever had this problem with..

    I've never had a problem with their liver tabs coming out partially dissolved but didn't know they used a whey filler.

    Sure. Note they do not specify the actual amount of liver (and this is not a concentrate form); second ingredient is whey - a significant portion of the protein content..
    The majority of ppl will absorb the horse pill just fine (tho I have come across others with this same issue). Just sharing a personal experience..

    I like the Beverly liver tabs, however I really have issues with the size of them. It is impossible for me to get the amount I need down because they trigger my gag reflex. So I try to do 2 of them several times throughout the day.

    I'd actually like to get your take on this - I'm thinking about running an experiment VERY soon..

    http://jn.nutrition.org/cgi/reprint/42/2/271.pdf
    Eh...because you know I'm an obsessive wanker who hearts ingesting dangerous chemicals

    Self deprecation aside,I think the potential liver toxicity of DNP is greatly over stated.I don't have any supporting references for this assertion on hand but Conciliator has posted several studies indicating this to be the case.He went so far as to say that milk thistle is not needed.I'm not inclined to agree with dropping milk thistle,it's good stuff IMHO for general health,for those who...ehhh drink alcohol in moderate amounts while using DNP.My days of PH and AAS usage are over (it just got old) but if I were still on the AAS bandwagon whilst drinking a smaller amount of alcohol (an Irshman isn't any good if he can't imbibe Guinness somewhat regularly,we all know this)and using DNP,liver tabs would be included.

    Apologies for the broscience-esque anecdotal feedback but anyway...

    A friend/co-worker of mine starting messing around with lifting/juicing last year with pretty much no idea what he was doing.He was running a very liver toxic oral AAS at the higher end of dosing protocols.Which I can't remember the name of but I researched it and confirmed it to be the harshest oral on the market.He was drinking heavily and taking recreational de-rugz like oxy's,methodone and what not.We were talking about lifting or whatever and he mentioned he wasn't even taking milk thistle and thought drinking V8 and what not to be adequate precautions.He went on to say he was feeling very intense pain around his kidneys/gut a bit after he started on the AAS.So I gave him some milk thistle and Sesathin gelcaps I had and threw him a pre-paid CBC blood test (Steve Sliwa generously hooked me up with 4 of these for feedback on LEF's Hepatopo on cycle)
    Jay Edit: I'm sure he's a great guy but he's not the board sponsor

    After around a week and a half on sesa and milk thistle the pain was still there and progressing,yet he continued on with the fun stuff + AAS.So I gave him some dessicated liver tabs I received in a supplement trade as a bonus.I wouldnlt have thought to suggest them to this guy if I didn;t have them lying around,I figured if sesa+milk thistle didn't do the trick,it was either press onward for another few weeks and visit the ER or wisely drop the AAS.After several days of using liver tabs the very intense liver/kidney pain was dealt with so this long winded anecdotal tale indicates the efficacy of liver tabs on treating liver and kidney disorders.He did wise up and wrap up the cycle shortly thereafter,in good health.

    I was suckered into the notion of liver tabs being a staple supplement when I first got into lifting around 10 years ago and have only bought them once.I think they have no practical application towards athletes who do not use AAS and really are not a staple supplement,they are on a par with the validity of leucine supplementation IMHO,but I digress.For juicers,they're not a bad move though.

    For the record and as I consider myself to be A MAN OF THE PEOPLE 'a la George Costanza (a Seinfeld reference which I use whenever possible),I suggest everyone who uses DNP hit up the meso forums for a search on Conciliator's posting history.He is well schooled on DNP usage and is writing a book on the subject,he recently posted (after I inquired) that using creatine and other supps that favorably tweak ATP for endurance levels (beta alanine,arginine etc) is not detrimental to DNP and may actually increase fat loss.That was part of a helluva informative thread (on M&M),which I'll dig up and link here if requested.

    I'm one of those people that after awhile of being on supps I develop an aversion to swallowing them.
