    I've used bulk Banaba by NP b4. Good stuff, allowed me to eat a lot.

    I have some Recompadrol on the way, should be even better.

    R-ALA @ 200 mg 3X daily does the trick for me. One of the dosages with creatine, the other two 20 mins before meals.

    Glycobol and AP are both good. I am also hearing good things about Recompadrol.
    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.

    Ap didnt do much for me really, this stuff made me more vascular, more pumped, fuller, lost fat and stayed roughly around the same weight on this cut. Very impressed.

    I just got my recompadrol today and holy sht this stuff is amazing. I'm eating double what I was yesterday, my appetite is thru the roof. I hope this helps tone me up.

    You can feel the first dose working, it's the real deal.

    vanadyl sulfate
    R-ALA
    Yellow Gold
    Pslin
    Glycobol

    Glycobol hands down. Glycobol contains NA-R-ALA which is 10-30 times more powerful than regular R-ALA.Lower doses can be used on glycobol , like one to two capsules per day, due to the powerful Na-R-ala. In addition it has a few other insulin mimetic ingredients

    Im about a week in on Anabolic Pump and P Slin, Got to admit this stuff has been doing its job, I have used and like Recompadrol as well and loved results from it.. But if this stack keeps going the way it has been it will be just as good if not better.. Also no Anabolic Dumps or any sides thus far for me..

    I believe Crazyfool who created recompadrol just recently had a log using Recompadrol and Glycobol.

    I'm thinkin' about slipping my wife some Recompadrol this weekend before a meal and see how she feels.

    I slip her all kinds of stuff lol, sometimes maca and horny goat weed for libido! When she asks what it is I just tell her it's an antioxidant lol.

    I some how talked my fiance into taking a nutrient partitioner. She doesn't even like supplements in general.

    Slin Sane has been wonderful, and actually powerful enough when times and dosed accordingly that I can tell a difference when consuming it with carbs opposed to identical meals when I am either out or don't have the bottle with me.

    Glycobol and NOW's HCA product are also both very solid, tried and true supplements that, once again, when taken and timed to realize optimal results, they will bring about a definite change in dynamic in your progress.

    I have been unable to sample or run/log Recompadrol or Slin Shot, so I cannot comment on those supplements. However, I can say Swanson offers a very high yielding 75% G-Acid Sylvestre supplement, and Higher Power (BodyBuilding.com's in house brand) offers a very good r-ALA 100ct bottle product as well.

    X2 - Ended up selling what I could of the bottles I had left years ago. Of all the experienced trainees I keep in contact and correspondence with, I cannot honestly recall one who ended up giving rave reviews about AP or converted it into one of their staple ongoing supplements - even after using it in a very calculated strategic manner in proper dosages.

    Well - looks like "someday" ended up being TODAY

    Recompadrol is on its way, and I will be creating and maintaining a comprehensive summer cycle log through September outlining my experiences with it.

    Rochabp "outstanding" is one of the greatest loggers ever. I'm going to try whatever insulin mimicker he recommends and then let you know how it works out. So don't worry about other supplements I'll try them out and let you know a head of time before you try them.

    The pressure is too much for me to handle! Haha, thanks for your kind words - but I have no formal degrees or field/laboratory experience above-and-beyond self study and applied research. I do enjoy sharing what knowledge I have attained through the years with people like yourself who use it to expedite your own goals, but I am by no means some sort of preeminent logging savant

    I call it like I see it, and I am grateful that you and others relate to that and apply some of my findings to your own endeavoring to build muscle. I should disclose that Glycobol is also one of my favorite (Top 3) GDAs I have ever implemented in my training/pre-contest regimen, I just can't afford to administer it during the off season as much as I'd like. I have found a great balance between cost and benefit where Slin Sane and Recompadrol is concerned, and also believe simple r-ALA caps serve an extremely useful purpose as well.

    I invite anyone/everyone to please subscribe to my journal - I will continue on with my commitment to author insightful and informative objective feedback regarding my Summer Recomp - see you there!

    I call it like I see it, and I am grateful that you and others relate to that and apply some of my findings to your own endeavoring to build muscle. I should disclose that Glycobol is also one of my favorite (Top 3) GDAs I have ever implemented in my training/pre-contest regimen, I just can't afford to administer it during the off season as much as I'd like. I have found a great balance between cost and benefit where Slin Sane and Recompadrol is concerned, and also believe simple r-ALA caps serve an extremely useful purpose as well.

    Ha

    I think the absolute best protocol would come from an assortment of a few products that have minimal ingredient overlap to create a comprehensive partitioner that not only focuses on carbohydrate metabolism, but also fat attentuation: Recompadrol, Glycobol, and Slin Sane. However, if finances are a bit tight, you could always swap out Glycobol for pure HCA powder and r-ALA caps.
