    You would not know that unless you'd used both products standalone and taken bloods pre and post usage of each, taking nutrition and trainign into account also. As with anything, because everyone responds individually to every product, people may get different results - even using the base protocol mentioned prior - and some might see higher Growth Hormone levels with IGF-2 and others with PowerFULL.

    I have tried Powerfull and liked it, havn't tried IGF-2. Have you tried HGH UP? I like HGH UP a lot.

    Can you define " liked it"

    If you have a comment to make about a product , please explain what it did for you.

    Anyone trying to make up their mind as to whether to use either product wont find that useful.

    I haven't used IGF-2 so in fairness I can't vote but from my experience Powerfull Worked really well. I felt awesome pumps in the gym when used preworkout and slept like a baby at night.

    Also worth noting, I was on maintenance calories at the time and I observed a slight leaning effect every morning. . Could be nothing or it could've been the powerfull, not really sure.

    haven't tried the igf-2 only the powerfull but i'm siding with the igf-2 on this one, AP's formula profile looks way better and with usp changing their powerfull formula profile, hands down the better supp. goes to AN..

    Just because a products profile looks good, doesn't mean it is! The new York mets alaways look good on paper but as we know the results aren't always good! Both r good companies, both products have been tried and proven to b effective! I've used both, got good pumps, good libido boost and a good nights sleep on both! U can't go wrong with either

    Well, as were talking about HGH products, I found HGH UP did everything it said it was going to do, increased strength, recovery, vascularity, libido, endurance and overall since of well being.

    I think it works great and it's my favorite natural HGH product out there.

    I've used both and its a tough call to say which is "better". They both have differing and subtle effects, both seem to jack HGH levels and give better recovery, sleep, fat burning, muscle volumizing etc. IGF-2 seems to boost test levels more. Per cost, I tend to favor IGF-2 but then you can also get bulk 1-carboxy...so really, tough call.

    is there a supplement that has l-dopa in it and will let you fall asleep without any ingredient to help you. Some reviews on these type of supps seem suggest that they will knock you out almost before you get chance to get into bed

    Yes. Quite a few people are stacking it with BLACK CATS - or another preworkout product - and many still use it standalone.

    I have taken two cycles of each of them.

    Powerfull - dosed 5 days a week, 2 caps pre-workout, and 2 caps before bed

    IGF-2 - I took 3 caps pre-workout, and 3 caps before bed. I also tried 6 caps just before bed.

    Both products I did 8 weeks on, and 4 off. I did one "cycle" of Powerfull, then two "cycles" of IGF-2...now am back starting my second cycle of Powerfull

    For me, Powerfull works MUCH better. They both gave me a good nights sleep...so that is even. I would say sex drive was about equal on them as well. Where Powerful stands out, is in clearing my face of acne, and increasing my vascularity. In these two areas, Powerfull makes a MUCH better improvement. I am only one week into this round with Powerfull, and my face has already improved enought that my wife asked "Are you taking that Powerful again?" So yeah...there is a difference in my body between the two.

    Ps. Also tried the generic powerful of 1-carboxy at Nutra...and that INCREASED my acne, and had no effect on vascularity, sleep, etc.

    re;sleeping -do both products knock you out before you get into bed or do you just sleep deeper once you get off.

    do you sleep so deep you wouldnt hear the smoke alarm for example?

    I wouldn't say they knock me out. I take them just before I lay down, and I never have trouble getting to sleep. They just make me sleep deeper. Most nights I feel like my alarm goes off 1 minute after me head hits the pillow...with no tossing and turning. I feel much more rested with the same amount of sleep as well.

    Yes, its a deep sleep...we had a car run off the road and hit the tree in our front yard at about 3 in the morning. The horn was stuck on, and all our windows were open. My wife was freakin out and had to wake me up to go see. I tried to just roll over and go back to sleep. Anyways, it ended up being some drunk kid. I walked outside in my undies, he looked scared to death...without saying a word, I pulled his hood up, and yanked his battery cables right off...walked back inside and went back to bed.

    I've had good results with both IGF-2 and HGHup ... I have Powerfull on hand and will be trying that once the HGHup runs out

    it's unfair to vote, but I can definitely recommend good results with IGF-2

    I'm looking to take IGF-2 but am kind of unfamiliar with natural GH supps, so what are concerns or precautions I should take before purchasing or taking the supplement?

    im taking 2 caps of powerFULL and NOW testojack before bed. Sleep quality has improved, I normally sleep like sh!t. I take meds from my DR, (ambein, lunesta, etc) and I am now waking up 5x more refreshed. I still wake up a few times a night but when i get up in the morning I am much more recovered, have energy, want to tackle the day rather than sleep for another 2hrs.


    Lifts have gone up a a lot but I am taking PH's, cycle support, natural T boosters to avoid shutdown so its hard to say whats giving me the gains.

    There really are no precautions, etc. for you to take. Just make sure that you're of a age where supplementing such supplements will benefit you (i.e. anything less than 21 years old, and most supplements are not needed), and also that you haven't just started training (i.e. have been training for at least 1-2 years), have your nutrition and training solid for your goals, are using the basic staples, and you will be ok.

    I just grabbed IGF-2 on wheycheap for like 29$. Can't beat that to try it out. I do have HGHpro sitting at the house which will be tried first, as it is part of a sponsored log. Not sure if I will log the IGF-2, but seeing as I have back to back sponsored logs coming up, I doubt it, lol ill need a break.
    Just inject.

    Do you dose IGF-2 according to the label instructions or higher dosage?

    Does IGF-2 give the same improving effect on the skin as Powerfull?

    You dose IGF-2 according to your bodyweight and the times given - you do NOT need to dose higher than recommended; those dosages are for OPTIMAL effects for each bodyweight.

    IGF-2 helps improve skin complexion and tone, yes, since it is a Growth Hormone booster.

    You mean "insight"

    And no worries. Like I said, IGF-2 is my absolute, ultimate, favourite product ever - if I could only ever use one supplement, it would be IGF-2. I just love it. The results and benefits I get are nothing short of amazing!
