I dont post on here much, but I am on here almost everyday reading, learning... I've run a couple searches and have gathered some good information about HGHuP and Free Test but I do have one question. I understand that HGHuP must be taken on an empty stomach, which is fine, but how long must I have an empty stomach for the product to absorb fully? Meaning, how long must I wait to eat after I ingest the pills? I'm pretty much always hungry and always seem to have a full stomach. I am on day 3 of my stack.
My credentials: 5'9", 192 lbs., 34 years old
eat six meals a day, with no carbs after 4th meal,
Stacking: NutraPlanet protein, multivitamin, 3000mg Vit C, 10g Glutamine, Jack3d, HGHuP and Free Test.
Thanks in advance...

I'd say don't stress about it. If the product is any good absorption times won't matter. Just take it with some Vitamin C tablets and it should work accordingly.

Thanks. Yeah, Im not stressed. Just dont wanna waste the product or the money spent to purchase it. I appreciate the response though.

From what I understand is that you don't want carbs around dosing this. I believe it is in the neighborhood of no carbs for ~2 hours before taking this as not to blunt GH. I have found the best way to take this is 6 caps prior to bed.

I just took a prescribed antibiotic and "empty stomach" was defined as 2 hours after eating or and hour before.

EVERY Gh supplement MUST be taken in the absence of carbs. Carbs spike insulin, and insulin prevents GH release. It's that simple. I agree with the 2 hours before or after rule for this purpose. I use Ghenerate first thing in the morning, and at night I cease eating 2-3 hours before bed, and dose when I hit the sack. It's working great.
Back to the absorption times: the presence of food slows the absorption of nearly EVERYTHING. Some compounds are aided by the slower absorbtion, like vinpocetine or beta alanine (IIRC), but others will lose all/nearly their benefits from the presence of food, like hgh supps and bcaa's. But that has nothing to do with the OP's question.

Insulin begins to rise shortly after it has reached baseline levels (fasting insulin levels). There is a limited time window when insulin is low and continues to stay low. Since this rollercoaster effect takes place 2-3 hours after a meal, i would recommend taking the supplement 2 hours after a complex carbohydrate meal.
