    Activate Xtreme: low libido <- Gone :)


    Hi guys

    I'm on day 11 of my AX cycle and the only thing I notice is a loss of libido...
    My desire came down to 1-2 times per day, common for me is 2-3 times
    Furthermore I have troubles with falling asleep when taking AX in the evening.
    This is exactly the opposite of what the product claims to do..so lol
    In consideration of other users' reviews I expect the strengh gains to kick in in week 2-3...
    How can these effects be explained?



    Regards

    hm that is unusual ...i noticed decent strength gains when using AX right around the 2 to 3 week mark so you should see the same results and also the libido issue as well happened to me, if using it for increased libido then i would take a week off and then start again, if using for strength then either let libido be where it's at ... as for the sleeplessness, the rhidola rosea has been known to stimulate the central nervous system, try taking you last dose 6 hours before sleeping and see if that helps.

    AX works. It took me about a month to notice bigger muscles and strength, and after 2 months I was like WOW! I looked much bigger and strength was up, I respond very well to divanil.

    Interesting..... I had stacked AX with STOKED awhile back and my libido was through the roof. I've also used Divanex and didn't have libido issues.

    Are there any other variables that have changed lately? Are you under more stress right now?

    Try taking 2 pills upon waking, and 2 more an hour before your workout. Also, Divanil works extremely well with an AI.

    But, that's what I'm doing already
    As far as I know, AX hasn't got an AI, but isoflavones which are very similar to estrogen to block the receptors, is that correct?

    I read somewhere that Activate lowers the level of total testosterone but upps the level of free T - could this cause the libido problem?

    AX should not cause any libido problems. Are you taking any other supplements with it? How is your sleep? Less sleep = less libido. AX contains I3C, which lowers levels of all bad estrogens and increases the one good estrogen... Which leads to increased testosterone.

    I agree here the AX/Stoked stack kicked libido into high gear. I have not heard about this problem at all with AX.
    Ask me for samples of the new RecoverPRO and Maniac. 3Z is coming July 1st Facebook for more info and maybe a great deal on it coming.

    No other supps, exept zinc and a multi vit...
    My sleep is always good, I never wake up at night.
    Btw, I had the same problem with Mass FX!

    I'd say that your body doesn't respond well to Divanil. That's my guess.

    That's possible, but may be it was simply too much. I do only take 3 caps now for some days and my libido is back up!
    Dosed at 3 caps a day my two bottles would last for about 11 weeks altogether.. Is it a good idea to run AX that long at a low dosage?

    I would not run it longer than 8 weeks without a break.

    remember when you use something like divanil you free up test and E2,

    put an AI in there, your e2 levels may be too high

    People are forgetting that abundance in divanil can cause suppressiopn to one's LH levels; causing a lack in libido.

    if you're looking to icrease LH output and want to stay legal pick up some AN's Drive. some good 'ol bulk maca root will sure do the trick to increase libido, if thats your main concern ..or just pick up some DTH i dont know why you went with AX for a test booster...DTHC is superior to it.

    I thank you all for your interest in my problems, especially andrew - but i must admit, the little libido supressing effects of the first 2 weeks are gone now, i'm actually very horny atm lol

    Im running 4 caps/day again and I start 'feeling' it in the gym

    I can answer this, it's bc DTHC is hardly available and very expensive in europe (~50)

    Everyone reports great libido effects from DTHC, but the AX will build more muscle mass.
