    Best products for insulin sensitivity


    For those that easily put on fat due to being sensitive to insulin, what is a good supplement to take. I dont drink soft drinks and fruit juice and sugary foods. I watch what quality of carbs I take in, just wondering if there is also a supplement that would help

    cinnamon bark, vinadyl sulfate ( sp?), na r ala, banaba, bitter melon extract - raw materials

    glycobol,p slin, anabolic pump - supplement blends
    For me, the action IS the juice.

    Glycobol is the answer.

    I am really enjoying Appnut's Neovar Recomped. I have added 200+ g carbs (WMS, sweet potato, milk (lactose), ezekial bread, rice cakes (post work out)) to my diet in the last 6 weeks and still have my six pack while having gained 5 pounds. I was skeptical but it seems to be useful for lean bulking.

    will definitely give some of these a try. I just always struggle with muscle and fat. I can put on muscle pretty easy when I up the calories but with the increase also comes extra carbs and other things and even eating clean I tend to put on fat quickly. So I bulk a little while, then diet down slowly in order not to lose my gains.

    looks good on paper, but Garcinia cambogia has not been shown to help any humans with weight loss or body recomp.

    This HCA is really interesting I'm about to look into it....

    But supps by themselves that have worked wonders for me are:
    Vanadyl/R-Ala/Chromium Pic

    I havn't tried any 'blend' GDA besides AP, and even though the company is great, I have a hard time believing that product did anything for me at all, in the future I MAY try it again and drop everything except for basics and run it that way, but that will be only if a real good deal of it pops up.

    If you took it before 25 minutes prior to your meal, that is your answer, with a supp such as AP, do not take it 15 minutes prior to a meal, wait 25-30 minutes.

    I experimented, starting off with recommended 25, then I tested 15, also tested the before cardio method, tested 2 pills at a time, etc.

    I just don't react to it I guess, which is sad because results are all great for others.

    No, I never gave that a thought, if I ever decide to give it a go again I'll be sure to log it and use one now that you brought that up!

    Ive learned a bit about insulin mickers since about the time I started almost eight years ago..I am taking glycobol and have been over a month now and have seen some nice changes in strength.(strength was my main goal this past month) I'm continuing to take glycobol (on my second bottle) and will be starting a slow cut this month.

    I have tried nr-ala from ast over five years ago, Ive tried anabolic pump, yellow gold, vanadyl sufate over the last seven years and now glycobol, and I must say that if I do not eat enough carbs I feel funny. so make sure carbs are taking with these if not it is not fun.

    also too much vanadyl give me horrible diarrhea. ..there were guys taking 100-150 and I tried this a couple times and every time I tried my stomach cramped and had the sh*ts. I guess my body does not react well to vanadyl sulfate or can not take as much as some people can.

    I think you will find that it is somewhat effective, even if you dont notice anything from it.

    I can personally attest to GlycoBol being a solid product in this department!

    if you're looking for a pre w/o type product that will help, Check out RagNOrok Ultra. Has absolutely ZERO carbs so no insulin spiking will occur

    For sure. Anabolic-Pump + Fish Oil. The key here is limiting the amount of Insulin release and transport to fat cells (I assume).

    Anabolic-Pump is THE Nutrient Partitioner. AP will shuttle nutrients to muscle cells and away from fat cells and works independently of insulin – only product in the world to do this!

    Most users experience will gain muscle WHILE losing body-fat making AP a must for recomposition. AP activates GLUT4 without Insulin and primarily only in muscle cells.

    Add fish oil with meals as well.
