  1. Erase + DAA bloodwork


    Hey everyone, newer here just thought I'd post up my results from my last run with erase and DAA. Asked the doc to test estrogen levels too but apparently he never did Only supps I ran for 8 weeks and these results were from the day before starting and at the end of week 6

    Before (my results on the left, standard range listed on the right)

    Lipid panel
    Cholesterol 163 < 239 - mg/dL
    Triglyceride 63 < 199 - mg/dL
    HDL 43 > 40 - mg/dL
    Low density lipoprotein calculated 107 < 129 - mg/dL

    ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase)
    ALT 19 < 36 - U/L

    Testosterone
    TESTOSTERONE, ULTRASENSITIVE, LC MS/MS 538 250 - 1100ng/dL
    Testosterone free 106.8 35.0 - 155.0 pg/mL

    After
    Cholesterol 166 < 239 - mg/dL
    Triglyceride 86 < 199 - mg/dL
    HDL 45 > 40 - mg/dL
    Low density lipoprotein calculated 104 < 129 - mg/dL

    ALT (Alanine Aminotransferase)
    ALT 41 < 36 - U/L

    Testosterone
    TESTOSTERONE, ULTRASENSITIVE, LC MS/MS 534 250 - 1100 ng/dL
    Testosterone free 120.6 35.0 - 155.0pg/mL

    So no big changes. Not sure how significant the 14 pg/mL raise in free test is. My ALT sure did go up, is erase hard on the liver? DAA wouldn't cause it because it's an amino, the liver shouldn't need to process it correct?


  2. Thanks for posting this. ALT can fluctuate with workout intensity (and pain reliever use, etc), and 41 is nothing to fret over.

    Were estrogen/E2 levels tested?

    unfortunatly no, asked for them to be tested but they never were. I'll be running this again at the end of summer to get those numbers because that's what I was most curious about. I also forgot to mention I'm 24 years old

  6. I wonder if you used the DAA with TMG and some LCLT if results would be different?

    There should be ample methylators in the diet, and LCLT won't alter testosterone levels.

  8. was blood drawn at the same time of the day both times?

    doses?
    HIGH VOLUME - Supreme Stim-Free Nitric Oxide Matrix
    SELECT Protein
    - Ultra-Premium Blend
    ALPHAMINE - Thermogenics...Redefined

  9. Blood was drawn at the same time both days and I workout every other day so I made sure I went in both times after my day off (not sure if it'd make a difference, just thought I'd be consistent).

    I was dosing the recommended 3g of DAA (nutraplanet brand, may try a diff. route next time) every morning, did it on an empty stomach. I dosed erase at 3 caps per day. Spread them out every 6ish hours as recomended. I'm not put off by the products, guess I was just expecting a little more testosterone even though I know I'm young, maybe my body can't produce that much more?

    Any recomendations on the Erase next time natty? (want to see what the estrogren levels are so I'll be running it again at the end of summer)

  10. LCLT expresses the androgen receptor. there should be ample methylaters in diet but that doesn't mean jack if you lack the ability to methylate properly. nutraplanet brand of DAA is a quality product.

    Increasing androgen receptor density would have no effect on serum testosterone. If the effect was significant enough, it could even decrease it.

    Tough call...only advice would be to try different DAA. Nice Free T increase..would like to see the estrogen panel
    HIGH VOLUME - Supreme Stim-Free Nitric Oxide Matrix
    SELECT Protein
    - Ultra-Premium Blend
    ALPHAMINE - Thermogenics...Redefined

  13. what brand DAA did you use? This could make a big diff.

    It was NP (not sodium form). I'd be curious to see his results with SNS DAA or testforce 2

    It seems that all those having bad luck with DAA use plain bulk non-sodium DAA (usually from NP). The study itself used Sodium DAA. I'd wager if he tried it with SNS DAA he'd have much better luck.

    NP DAA gave me the worst anxiety, I've used other brands and not had this issue..

    How would you know if the daa is sodium or no sodium? Never saw it on labeling...

    SNS is sodium

    Oops it was right there on the GD label. I don't think I am taking enough ALCAR...

    If you're running it again at the end of year run it with SNS DAA. It's sodium DAA and I think your results will be significantly better man.

    I'll give it a try, thanks for the feedback/tips everyone

  22. Free test up by 13% which is quite good considering you're 24 and the study concentrated on 27 to 40 years old or something.

  23. Those results are so minimal that i'd be more likely to say they the stack simply isn't effective or worth the money. That level of fluctuation could easily be caused by day to day life.

    I'm not saying this is smoking gun proof, since n=1 that would be foolish, but any one saying "awesome results" its just blowing smoke.

  24. Quote Originally Posted by Angelbolic

    Can only be a positive right? Esp w free test

  25. you know i have some DAA and some base blood work that includes estrogen, total est, lipids. Maybe I will give this a try. thx for sharing OP
