After reading through threads here I decided to post this tread to get feed back on those who ran.
How did you dose it?
Did you run it solo or stacked?
How long did you run it for?
How were your results?
ran natabolic stack for 4 weeks starting at 6 caps and bumping to 8 and saw nothing but acne and prostate problems and hairline thinning, quit the cycle and now started formadrol extreme...honest reveiw
natadrol/ mmv3 - 30 days
8/6 a day
Serious increase in all major lifts, satisfied customer.
I have been using Natadrol/Formadrol for 3 weeks. I have not gained any size but my strength has increase marginally and I have seen a good deal of recomp. The action of this product is simalar to DHT with the same side effects (hair loss, prostate problems, etc.) The first week I used Natadrol as a standalone and had prostate issues very quickly. I decided to add Formadrol for estrogen control and so far so good. DHT+Estrogen = Prostate problems.
Androgenic action of Tinospora cordifolia ethanolic extract in prostate cancer cell line LNCaP.

AIM OF THE STUDY: Recently, Tinospora cordifolia (TC) was shown to affect prostate growth in rats. It is not known whether this is a direct effect of TC or whether it is induced by altered hormone release. To investigate the actions of TC on the prostate, human LNCaP cells were exposed to an ethanolic extract of TC. MATERIALS AND METHODS: LNCaP cells were incubated with the test substances for 48 h. Proliferation was measured by MTT test and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) secretion was determined with ELISA. RESULTS: TC showed a dose-dependent stimulation of proliferation of LNCaP cells. Co-incubation with the anti-androgen flutamide (FLU) reversed the TC-induced stimulation of PSA secretion. CONCLUSIONS: The reference compound dihydrotestosterone (DHT) caused a significant increase of growth of LNCaP cells. Similarly, TC stimulated proliferation of these prostate cells. The anti-androgen FLU reversed the increase of PSA release caused by either DHT or TC. Thus, we suggest that TC may contain androgenic compounds, which appear to act via androgen receptor (AR).

Took it for 8 weeks at 6 caps a day, didn't notice anything. Had slight strength gains but they were not any faster than normal gains I make without supplements. Had to pee a lot too.
up in lifts, up 5 lbs in weight, bf decreased, all around gains in muscle size.. definitely satisfied here, i still got about 4 days left on the cycle.. i dosed it 6 a day then increased to 9 for my last week (only because i want to start my formadrol stack by monday)
subbed for replies
To those who had prostate issues:
- What were they?
- Have you previously had these issues with a PH/test booster?
I've just started Natadrol and just want to see these issues affect every one or just those who are prone to them.
i bougth one bottle of Natadrol and MM for stack`em but i see a lots of users with prostate problems for the stuff !!!!

Got Glycophase ...?
6 per day, spread out as evenly as I could, as outlined on the Natabolic Stack box. Ran with GHenerate, 6-8 sprays @ night and German American Tech's JetFuel Pyro for the first half and iSatori's MX-LS7 for the second (not so much used as fat burners as stims). Weight dropped 4.2 lb and about 3.5%BF (weight and BF spiked before the Natarol when I used Gaspari Halodrol MT). Appeared more lean than before the Halodrol MT, apparent increase in muscle density. Felt pretty damn good and seemed to not only increase workout related recovery, but other healing as well. I was coming off an ankel sprain (happened 2 mos before I started) and was still giving me trouble, but all pain went away about a week or week and a half in. No noticible sides.
And for the part I'm sure everyone is more interested in:
Strength gains - not only in terms of weight, but endurance as well. Gains and PRs all around. I use the pull up as my main indicator. Body weight pullups quadruppled per set; with a 40lb vest, they doubled.
PCT with Formadrol, also as directed. I'm on week 3. Pull ups down a bit, but I work out in an attic w/o AC and it has been in the 90s and very humid, so I'm going to blame that on my lackluster performance.
All in all, a great product that I will most definietly use again.
sounds like a product you just have to try for yourself almost 50/50 on good and bad experiences
Subbing, I have 3 bottles and a T911 in the hopper.
Paging Dr. Banner. . .
Thank You for all the responses.It sucks with all the prostate problems.
Looks like it's not worth it.
I ran two bottles, first bottle at 6 a day second bottle at 7 a day. Gained about 4 lbs, look a tad bit leaner and strength went up some, mostly on db incline press (10 lbs) and db shoulder press (10 lbs). The only side i noticed was headaches, didnt have them before or now that im done. Running Formadrol XL and Testopro now for 30 days.
