    Insulin Mimetic/Nutrient Repartitioner


    Does anyone have good articles on the properties of these compunds?
    I am doing a research presentation on the topic and am struggling to find a good article on the actual process of mimicking insulin and driving glucose to the cells. Also, I need some explanation on the differences between some coumpounds and their methods of actions.

    If you do a search for Need2Slin I bet that you will find a writeup from RussianStar the inventor..

    Well here is a write up to the best nutrient repartitioner on the market. It's so powerful, I almost had to take a nap after using one serving 30mins prior to a cup of oats. No joke....this stuff works and it works well.

    Hey, cool question, you're doing a presentation in college on GDAs? If so, that's very exciting, what class is it for, usually professors are totally and blindly opposed to ANYTHING contained within a capsule (in my experience). It will be a hard sale, so to speak, and you might get pummeled with questions - so I'd have your citations in order, and just admit you're new to exploring the benefits of these great compounds.

    If I got started I could go, and go, and go about the positive effects of mimetics, but I will just leave you with some of my absolute favorites and you can Google the products and compounds! BEST OF LUCK AND HAVE FUN, let us know how it goes and what road blocks you're hitting or hit in class.

    - Recompadrol
    - Need 2 Slin
    - 4-Hydroxyisoleucine
    - Cinnulin
    - Vinegar Capsules

    its for a biochemistry class. I had been into prescription ones along with over the counter supplements such as p-slin, gycobol, recompadrol, need2slin etc. I really got interested in this topic because we previously covered insulin release and I took 2 different mimicking compounds in the past without knowing the actual biochemistry behind it

    thanks, glycobol was one of the reasons im actually doing this presentation. It was fantastic when I took it over the winter. The only thing I question is that GLUT4 transporters are present in fat and muscle, so wouldnt most insulin mimickers store glucose in fat, making more fat?

    I've heard a lot of good things about Glycobol as well as Need2slin.

    For the record, I started Need2slin 3 days ago and loving it!!

    No. They help more carbs go into muscle and be stored in the muscles. In addition, help keeping insulin levels more stable.

    NA-R-ALA is my favorite ingredient in Glycobol as it is shown to be 10-30 x's more powerful than R-ala

    I use Need2 now and I am doing a keto diet. I am seeing some major recomp and considering I have cals up high due to my PCT, that says something. I wish I responded well to glycobol, the only insulin mimetic that really worked for me is IGF-1. Out of the few on the market I know many like, glycobol and need2 are what I would recommend. Each is different and depending on diet, that will determine what is right for you.
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

    Do some searching on IGF-1, outside of insulin, it is by far the most effective nutrient partitioner out there and has many other benefits. There is a lot of research on it, check pub med.

    Alpha Lipoic Acid is good antioxidant and good insulin mimetic but watch it may result in a greater amount of liver glycogen storage and may even result in more fat storage than intended in my case 1200mg is overkill out of ketosis well 600-900mg is optimal range go up to 1g if the person have Diabetes with NA-R-ALA only need 200-300mg daily no more.

    loook at the write ups for Recompadrol and need2slin

    few mechanism worth mentioning is the

    PI3K pathway (insulin Pathway)
    PPARalpha/delta Agonism (increasing insulin sensitivity in muscle/adipose cells)
    cAMP

    but the write ups for those 2 supplements will greatly help

    I would love to see the study or site you got that from, I'm NOT questioning you at all, I've just always been on the lookout for something definitive that shows na-r-ala is truly optimal compared to r-ala at glucose modulation specifically. I have been torn and conflicted about the research I've seen, so I've actually been using both for a couple years, Need 2 Slin for about six months now, and r-ala for many years.

    Sounds very cool! How did the presentation go, or has it not happened yet? If you'd be so kind, I think it would be AWESOME of you to copy/paste your paper here, I know I'd read it and many others I'm sure.

    I am presenting a powerpoint this week coming up, I will make sure to post it on the thread when it is finished. I think the 3 main compounds I will investigate are ALA, cinnamon, and Gymnema Sylvestre. Beyond those 3 I am going to explain insulin's action, how they change in diabetics and explain the GLUT4 transporters

    Good choices, 4-HO would be a good replacement for Cinnamon, but I think your three are good since they are easily available for purchase.

    Are you looking at cinnamon, raw, or more refined extracts like Cinnulin?

    I atually focused on MHCP which is a compound in cinnamon, it seems to be the cause of its insulin mimetic effects

    Read through the whole slide show!

    So much of this brings back the same questions I had before... will taking certain of these GDAs and Mimetics enhance the effects of Insulin injection for non-diabetics, using it for muscle reparation and anabolism?

    I believe cinnamon will because it activates glut4 through different means than cinnamon, in banaba extract there is no synergystic effect though

    So much of this brings back the same questions I had before... will taking certain of these GDAs and Mimetics enhance the effects of Insulin injection for non-diabetics, using it for muscle reparation and anabolism?
    it will sort of SELECTIVELY pick muscle tissue, hopefully. usually high concentrations of insulin for some reason favor storage toward fat. but lower concentrations depending on depleted or fed state or not will favor muscle tissue.

    sorry I meant than insulin. I read that both work cooperatively because cinnamon targets glut4 but also other downstream targets so it can work synergystically

    Is this why it's a great idea to take a Mimetic with something to mitigate adipogenesis, like HCA?

    Thanks! You've got cinnamon on the brain, haha!

    Bulk raw cinnamon power (not the raw herb, but decent 4:1 and 12:1) extracts can be purchased so cheap, I wonder if those are efficacious enough to even be worth buying and capping - or if only something highly standardized like Cinnulin is worthy?
