    Is it really possible to "block carbohydrate absorption"?.

    What's confusing? Slintensity can be used on a bulk as well, Coop was just saying he would personally prefer to use it while cutting. It isn't as if you can't use it in a calorie surplus by any means, heck I think Matt is using it currently bulking and it hasn't turned him into a string bean.

    As of right now none that I am aware of. Let us know how you use the Slintensity and what you notice.

    Idk lol. I guess b/c I thought a GDA is supposed to help shuttle the carbs to your muscles, but when he says it blocks carbohydrate absorption that sounds almost the opposite when I read it. Maybe I'm misunderstanding something... It's been a long day blah blah blah (insert excuse for being dumb here)...

    You will get more out of your carb meals with Slintensity than without it. For instance I just got done wolfing down almost a whole pizza and took Slintensity before it. I'm feeling energized, vascular, good to go. Last couple weeks I've been in a coma following that on my carb ups.

  8. I saw Southland's facebook page put up they're testing out slintensity pre-beers. I decided to do the same tonight. I'll report back tomorrow how it went.

    Yes. Gymnema does so at the site of absorption, while banaba inhibits release of enzymes that digest carbohydrates.

    This is a common misconception. The purpose of a GDA is exactly that: to lower blood glucose. This is achieved by blocking carbs, increasing uptake at all cell types. No affordable GDA is a nutrient partitioner; save exercise for fulfilling that role .

    So if you don't digest the carbohydrates than what happens?. What effect does this have on insulin?.

    If you don't digest carbohydrates, they are excreted in fecal matter. Insulin will obviously be lower since the glycemic load will be lower.

    If insulin works as it should than shouldn't it lower blood glucose?. So that leads me to another question, if insulin is lowering blood glucose and the GDA is also lowering blood glucose wouldn't that cause a potential problem with over-production of insulin?.

    Yes, insulin lowers blood glucose. If less glucose is making it to the bloodstream (via carbohydrate blocking), less insulin will be released by the pancreas.The GDA does not increase insulin production; that would be counter-productive and would potentially cause insulin resistance. Rather, GDAs increase GLUT4 translocation independent of insulin release. They "mimic" insulin, reducing total insulin output, and improving insulin sensitivity (all foreseeably good things for overall health).

    Ok so then it is beneficial to use a GDA on a carb up, which would allow you to eat a little more than you normally would without the potential fat gain?. If you were too eat a little too much fast digesting carbs on a carb up normally it would cause over production of insulin and your blood glucose would drop making you feel like you had a sugar crash. With a GDA your blood glucose and insulin are kept at a more consistant level rather than yo-yoing up and down. Correct?

    It depends on the ingredient in question. The broad-spectrum use of the term "GDA" is misleading. Insulin mimetics won't reduce weight gain; carbohydrate blockers obviously will.

    The whole fast-digesting carb, insulin output, etc is pretty much mythology unless your final meal after an epic 800g carbup was a gigantic bolus of HFCS-laced soda. De novo lipogenesis is not a preferred process; ESPECIALLY, when glycogen-depleted.

    But yes, an insulin mimetic can make you feel less lethargic by virtue of reducing total insulin output.

    Thanks for your help mr.cooper. I don't want to de-rail this thread anymore though so I'll stop with the questions for now. Thanks again.

    Any time buddy

  19. To those curious how this compares to slinsane v2, I've tried both and I can honestly say this is superior.

    I can actually FEEL this doing something, unlike the others where I just hoped it was helping lol.

    Slintensity had a superior effect on the glucometer for me, but SSv2 is my preferred choice simply because the inclusion of Na-R-ALA complements my supplement stack perfectly. You really can't go wrong with either though; an 80% 4-OH extract is unheard of.

  24. Is there any ingredients that actually selectively increase insulin sensitivity in muscle?

    I had quite a few hefty pumpkin beers last night. Didn't feel bloated/full at any point. It was like drinking light beer except it tasted a lot better.
