    This thread got off topic fast.... I would like to see some reviews of lipoderm and absolved. What do the people who used the product think of it?

    Before Dante left avant He once wrote in M&M (http://www.mindandmuscle.net/content/page-70.html) about judging a product:

    In general cases, most ingredients in a product do work, but only in certain circumstances, so we have to look at:

    Do the studies mention a specific, dose dependant response? If so, does this products have the corresponding dose?
    ...
    "Proprietary" should be generally taken as a euphemism for “a group of nutrients that can not be patented, since they are in the public domain, but which we can group together, and give a new, exciting name and treat it as though it were a new and exciting ingredient.?
    Funny some avant products have these "Proprietary" blends and make it impossible to see if something is dosed correctly, a criteria established by their company for judging a product.

    I am in charge of production at Avant. I know the dosages of each ingredient, and I know that nothing is underdosed.
    If somebody who makes money off a product starts talking about how good it is and how we can trust him that everything is dosed ok instead of deciding for ourselves, I call it pimping.

    The only way you can refute my claim that avant added "filler" substances to the ingredients list it to post how much of each compound is in your proprietary blends. 0.5mcg of a compound probably isn't going to do much good, but it puts it on the ingredients list under the special blend of herbs and spices.

    Why hide behind a secret formula?

    Honestly, proprietary belnds are becoming more popular in the market. True, that there are a few companies who do this jsut to underdose products, but many of the new formulas out do this so their formula will not be copied. Take the new VPX redline for example...they used a proprietary formula...and there product was still knocked off by LMR.

    I addressed your comments - I did not come on here talking about how good it works. We let our feedback testify to that.

    The issue of proprietary formulas was well-addressed by Nsruffryder.

    They don't list exact amounts so that people won't rip them off.

    You don't find it a little hypocritical your company published a highly critical article on scams saying that in order to properly evaluate a product one needs to be able to know if the dosing of each ingredient is high enough but then released a product without that information?

    cr4ytonic....what is your beef here? That you want the formula for their products or that you tried them and they didn't work? I'm not understanding your point.
    This thread was just someone needing advice on which substance to use for chest fat and the thread starter seemed to have some user feedback to aid him (and others). You seemingly have a beef with the Avant crew and turned this into a pissing match for no apparent reason. You weren't even talking about Lipo-Y or Lipo-U....so what's the deal?

    I'm not part of their crew at all and just enjoy learning from the boards...but this is sounding more like Brotelligence bickering.

    What is transdermal caffein? I have some caffein anhydrous.
    Can I add it to lipoderm-Y?

    Caffeine Anhydrous. Transdermal (topical) is the delivery method. So..."transdermal caffeine" is caffeine administered via transdermal application as opposed to say orally administered. When using the lipo products they are using a transdermal that is a site-specific/local delivery formulation. So one gets the diuretic effect of caffeine in the area of application as opposed to systemic. If one were to take caffeine orally there would still be a diuretic effect, but it would then be systemic rather than locally/targeted. The reasoning behind using it transdermally is for targeted delivery of the diuretic effect, and specifically in the case of lipo-y, to offset the local water retention associated with transdermal y-hcl.

    LD, thanks for the reply (from awhile back). But what I meant was, if you are trying to remove a substantial amount of bodyfat from your system via something like Lipoderm Ultra, would that overtax your liver/gallbladder, what with the removal of so much "stuff" at once?

    Just want to be clear as to any such risks before I start using the product.

    Thanks for any further insight!

    I believe the amount of fat you are removing from your system remains the same (ie-it is dependant on caloric intake/expenditure and phys. activity) however what changes with the application of Lipoderm is WHERE it gets the fat from. Instead of preferentially taking fat from where your genetics determine (for example in me, my legs), it will instead be burning some fat from the areas where you applied the lipoderm.

    So to answer your question, no it shouldnt be hard on your liver or gallbladder at all Now fat burners like usnic acid and that like, those....

    I finally started on the Lipoderm Ultra and have been taking it for just under two weeks now - two pumps, twice daily (half the recommended dosage).

    Bottom line: Serious day-long jitters. Any other Lipoderm users experienced this?

    How much Yohimbe/L-Carnitine/caffeine is in this stuff? And how much actually gets absorbed into the bloodstream?

    Thanks.

    Never any problems unless I was also taking oral ECY at the same time. I used the product several times at much higher dosing (8 pumps).

    you said,
    "Leptigen for instance contains "Proprietary Blend of the following ingredients:Galactose, BCAA's, IP6, Betaine HCl, glucosamine HCl, Glutamine, creatine pyruvate, Lecithin, sodium acetate, histadine, arginine, Leucine, Taurine, Magnesium citrate, calcium lactate, n-acetyl-glucosamine, vitamine E acetate, l-carnitine, inositol, Glycine, salt (iodized, K+) calcium pantothenate, Proline, n-acetyl-tyrosine, vitamin C with ascorbate, GABA, simmondsin, 5-HTP, alpha lipoic acid, synephrine, Zinc, folic acid 10% with tmg, giotin 1%, selenomethionine."

    Why not release how much of each? Probably because some are underdosed and are just there to extend the ingredients list. Joe Consumer thinks the more stuff in it, the better the product. Companies, who are out to make money, will cater to him."

    I highly doubt that the average "JOE CONSUMER" even purchases Leptigen, as it is somewhat pricey. If you look at almost any review you will see that this is a highly reviewed and a well liked product. This product clearly fills a particular nitch that other companies have failed to fill. Of course with a product as unique and innovative as this they would not want to be ripped off, hence the proprietary blend!

    Hey guys, i hope you can help me:

    I am not sure, if I order Lipoderm-Y or Lipoderm-Ultra. There is nowhere the yohimbine-dose of Lipoderm-Ultra!
    Lipoderm-Y contains 3g Yohimbine per bottle, but how much contains Lipoderm-Ultra? The minimal increase of the price doesn't matter me, but I dont know if Lipoderm-Ultra contains lesser yohimbine!!
    So what can you say about the yohimbine-dose of Lipoderm-Ultra?

    Lipo-U is still in production. Not sure if Lipo-Y is, though.

    THey both are...and the yohimbine content is identical. Lipo ultra is by far the superior formula.

    It would be a step towards Eviscerate, and is very effective - if greasy. If you have a good tolerance for pain, it is extremely effective.

    Thank you!

    I know the Pepper-Extract, pain will be no problem. I think I will start with one drop per day, then if it is acceptable I will increase the dosage (I think it will boost the blood circulation like hell, right?)

    Any ideas how much I should dose, if the side effects are acceptable for me?

    It does way more than just increase blood circulation, but yes it will.

    I would add about 1/4 of an ounce to a full bottle and see how that striked you.
