  1. Ecdysterone - Any fans here?


    I just completed another 3 month run of this stuff. I love it.

    I know this is not a "sexy" supplement and the effects are not like gear or a PH's but the stuff just recomps me like none other. More importantly, since I am in my 40's, I do not have to worry about sides!! NONE and the fact I am not without messing around with my hormones; this makes the cost needed for higher doses justified.

    -I am able to cheat more an get away with it.
    -Maintain strength while dieting.
    -Leans me out - similar to var ( I crap you not)
    -Get crazy vascular (even at rest).
    -"Feel" better (adaptogenic properties?!?!?!)

    I used to run ~2 grams a day (1x300mg cap from SciFit every 2 hours x 6 caps/day).

    This time around, I ran this again and added:
    1) EBOL (4 caps/day) - Spread out at 1 cap every 3 hours
    2) LeanXtreme (3 caps a day - spread out 1 cap every 3 hours)
    ***LeanXtreme made my fat loss and recomp more pronounced this time!

    RIPPED and I enjoyed my 2 cheat days per week.

    This is NOT a cheap cycle but the results and lack of sides and almost euphoric feeling while "ON" made this one fun cycle.

    Just figured I'd share


  2. Quality Ecdy is amazing for recomp.
    It would probably sell better and more companies would offer if it were advertised for what it was.
    I have taken Scifit at 1200 and 1500 mg a day, HOM at 1500mg and 2 grams a day, and stacked Syntrax's at 5 caps a day with Llewellyn's Arachidonic Acids.

    Got better sleep, more energy, way better endurance and oxygen capacity, improved my mood a bit, and leaned me out very well.

    Great stuff if you get a good potency.

    You're far more likely to run out of cash than experience toxicity.

  6. Haha ok cool. Then it's on!

  8. One of the other guys said he had good results from Beyond A Century's bulk ecdy powder, anyone else try this brand? it doesnt seem too expensive just to try out

  9. thermolife ebol is one of my all time favorite supplements. its a pricey run but i dont mind.

  10. I wouldnt mind trying a mega dosed cycle of this. Id have to find a cheap, and reliable brand and get enough to try for at least a month. If it was working well, I might buy more and really see where I could take it. I love trying out stuff, and with it being natural the only thing im losing is money.

  11. This is from BAC

    20-Hydroxy Ecdysterone (aka B-ecdysone) minimum 60% and total ecdysterone content about 90% by HPLC from a 150:1 extract of Cyanotis vaga
    Dose recommendations of ECD vary from 10mg 3x/day up to 5mg per kg of bodyweight divided in 3 doses/day. Some say 90mg of actual ECD (130mg powder) 3x/day is ideal.

    Serving Size 133 mg (enclosed scoop 1/2 full)
    Servings per container 188
    amount per serving % daily value
    Total Ecdysterones 120 mg *
    20 hydroxy Ecdysterone 80 mg

    inputs??

  12. Never tried BAC's.
    Looks good though.
    I'd probably run it with some of their Methoxy because it supposed to be synergistic.

    Rhaponticum would be nicer because the extra ecdysterones in it are pretty much the best all around adaptogens of all the available extracts except for Turkesterone.

    why find cheap stuff to megadose when you can just take the powerful thermolife ebol?

  16. I used it for a while. Nothing to special. Also, have your wallet ready. High amounts are needed for visbile results.

    and ThermoLife Ecdysten?

    i megedosed that, i think 3 times what the label said. it didnt do much for me so i dont recommend.

    Ebol is the **** though! expensive, but worth it to me. usually you want to run 2 bottles for 50 days, and strictly follow what the label says.

    dont expect pro-hormone gains though, but for a totally non-hormonal this is my favorite outside of creatine.

    i dont know why its so much on nutraplanet, its freaking ridiculous what they are charging here, although everything else on nutra is usually a great value.

    never tried it. the only other ecdy product i ever tried was syntrabol by syntrax about a decade ago.

    Ebol has pure Turkesterone, which is licensed exclusive to thermolife. nobody else has it.

    i dont use carbs ever, so anything i take including prohormones im not taking carbs. i dont believe in carbs, what are they?

    i wouldnt be interested in trying any other Ecdy product at the moment.

    Ebol is really a bulking supplement, but i dont bulk, ever anymore. i only do recomps or cutting. what i get from ebol is improved training performance and recovery.

    im on Ebol right now actually, had some stim fatigue, and Ebol helps me recover from that so thats an additional benefit imo unless its totally placebo, but it shouldnt be since it has high quality ginseng in it.

    not just ecdy, but they have Turkesterone, which has ecdy and other components in it. Thermolife has exclusive right to it. they payed big bucks for that.

    Thermolife is a very underrated company on these boards, id say mainly because there are no reps pimpin it here. Dicana is one of my all time fat burners.

    yea last I heard they were working on the whole turk and ecdy thing. its good to see they have worked out the bugs and etc.

    I agree they do a very solid job.

    Nice to see this thread. I had actually been compiling a list of ecdy supps, noting the amount of beta-ecdysterones present in each capsule (adjusted for the standardization %). I didn't include any proprietary blends where the ecdy dosage was not given. Here's the list, if anyone is interested:

    495 mg/cap HOM Beta-Ecdysterone Anabolic Environment Enhancer
    300 mg/cap SciFit EcdySterone 300
    200 mg/cap Syntrax SyntraEC
    150 mg/cap Supreme Sports Enhancements Omnibolic
    100 mg/cap Peak Performance Ecdysone FX
    100 mg/cap Vyotech 17-HD
    98 mg/cap SciFit T-Max Dual Anabolic System
    52 mg/cap ThermoLife E-BOL
    25 mg/cap MRM ECDY-20
    25 mg/cap Universal IsoStak
    25 mg/cap Weider Beta-Ecdysterone
    20 mg/cap Scitec Nutrition MyoMeth
    15 mg/cap ThermoLife Ecdysten
    7.5 mg/cap LA Muscle Norateen Heavyweight II
    7.5 mg/cap LA Muscle Norateen II

    (If you guys see any omissions or errors, let me know and I can edit the list...)

    Personally, I took 300-400 mg of ecdy (Peak Performance product above), split into 3-4 doses each day, for about 4 weeks, with a high protein diet, a couple of years ago. To be honest, I didn't notice anything, good or bad. A bit disappointing.

    I'm thinking of getting the SSE Omnibolic and giving it another try though, this time with a different product and at a higher dose of 150 mg 3x/day (450 mg ED).

    Also, anyone have a study to back up the claim of synergy with methoxy?

    Cheers!

  28. Agreed, to a point....

    IMHO, PH's are a total gamble and have all sorts of unwelcomed sides that also need to be mitigated by additional supps (more $$$). Be sure to add THIS expense to the total tally.

    For me, at my age, it's postives to negatives ratio. ZERO concerns for and BS.

    Not to mention, how many PH's are totally bunk along with these over-hyped non-hormonal $$$-products we've seen on this board where only 50% of the users report positive feedback AND the rocommended dose ends up being TWICE what's recommended anyway (more $$$).

    Again, for an old guy like me, the lack of any sides and mild/modest aesthetic advantage I get is good enought for me to spend the cash. With PH's and these "non-hormonal" items pimped on this board are a total lottery witrh regard to cash spent and sides experienced.
