    Would taking it before bed interfere at all with a gh related product like powerfull or ghenerate?

    A good all around thing to take.
    A friend alerted me to it.
    She's 50 and in extremely good shape.
    She uses coconut oil, olive, oil, flaxseed oil and a whole range of beneficial natural nutrients.
    Said that the coconut oil seemed to boost her energy and lean her out.

    About how long before you noticed the effects of this and what effects did you notice? I just bought some and am going to try taking a tblspoon before bed but was wondering what to look for.

    I personally felt it in a few days... I started with the lower end spectrum of test, so I had a good feel real fast. I found much more energy really fast, along with a well increased desire for the ol lady.

    How long did you do it for, or does it even need to be cycled?

    Unless there is some really good reason for me to go back to pwo carbs, I highly doubt that I will. Easier, cheaper and more effective in my opinion.

    Been using coconut oil for a while now.
    You guys should try coconut BUTTER to mix it up. It's basically a whole coconut that is ground up. Has the consistency of peanut butter. Pretty good.

    its good after shower, just in moderate amounts. dont slobber it on in huge quantities, small amount worked into the skin. it will help breakouts but its not really a cure. i did notice that my skin is never dry anymore, which was a problem in the past.

    also make sure you use a good brand especially if putting on your face. make sure its unrefined extra virgin organic. vitamin shoppe and spectrum brand worked the best for moisturizing while other cheaper brands I use for eating.

    I assume so. It's probably cheaper to buy a jar of the liquid though.

    How do you know that? I've heard fat can interfere with GH at night just like blood sugar increase from carbs will inhibit the hypothalamus releasing GHRH & in turn interfering with GH production.

    It seems this stuff is hard to find where I live in SW Ontario. I found some in the organic section of the grocery store but the price is excessive at $15.99 per jar.

    That isnt to much.. depending ont he size of the jar. 1Tblspn from a jar a day will make that jar last a hell of a long time.

    do you just dose at the same time you dose your zma? like an hour before bed.

    Yes..> i do maybe half an hour myself lately, gives a little more time for gastric emptying and insulin levels to normalize from the previous meals. I dose that, zma, and lately some Mucuna Preuiens (sp?) and the results have been phenomenal.

    I rely on coconut oil during my keto portions of my contest prep, works wonders IMO since it acts like a carb in your body without augmenting your blood sugar levels halting the release of insulin which if present will blunt fat loss.
