    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.

  3. 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.
  13. Thumbs up

    Any time buddy

  14. 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.

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

    No, but few (if any) GDAs can say that.

    Out of curiosity, can you give me some examples of the few natural substances that do?

  21. I mean are there really any true natural nutrient partitioners out there besides exercise?

  22. Okay here goes - my first experiment with Slintensity:

    I was driving so unfortunately I only had 1 Bud Light with my meal - so I popped 2 caps just before we got to the restaurant. About 15 min late the waitress brought us our drinks and a basket of rolls. I ate a roll while I scanned the menu. I should note that I did not get that hypo gotta eat NOW feeling that most people report with GDA's. I have never got that feeling with any others that I have used either...and I have tried just about all of them. Anyway, I order a 9" spinach pizza on a thin whole wheat crust and a side caesar salad. Waitress brings the salad out and I eat that. Feeling good after that, not full at all. Then the pizza comes out. I eat 1 slice and this is where I notice something. Usually after eating a roll, salad and a slice I am starting to get that " I am getting full but Imma keep eatin " feeling. Not so this time. In fact I ate the whole pizza and felt like I could eat a bit more. And I did - ordered the double chocolate hercules cake for dessert. I did eat it all.! Now at this point I was comfortably full - not OMG I am in agony because I ate too much and cannot move full - like I usually feel after a big meal like this.

    Today's experiment\dosage:

    I woke up this morning, drank my pre and some creatine and off to workout about 20 min later. I followed the instructions on the bottle and took 1 cap immediately after my workout, waited 20 min and had a shake consisting of 1 scoop Glycomyx, 1 scoop vanilla pp, blueberries, UVAB, cinnamon and red pepper. Tasted pretty good. I did notice that slight hypo feeling though just before I had the shake....funny because I didn't feel it last night. Maybe because this was my first meal of the day? I drank this shake and I was really full.....so total opposite of last night.

    2nd dose was about 20 min before dinner consisting of a sweetpotato, turkey burger on a wheat bun with mayo, and a garden salad. Did not feel hypo, but again, after this meal I was full...

    So there you have it, folks. Will report back with anything I notice
    Building my best body "for me"!

    Very nice! I think Matt said he put down 8 Rolling Rocks last night lol. Haven't heard much more than that, yet.

    Haha! I just very rarely drink, so it's not really in my wheelhouse.

  24. Good report Ms_Mac! I had similar results. Ate an absolute ton yesterday and didn't have the "carb coma" I'm used to getting after coming off three days of low carbs. Vascularity is increased as well. I'm also using the combo of GlycoMyx and Slintensity in a similar manner to you.

    Btw, is AM screwing up anyone else's spacing? I can't hit enter without it adding directly to the previous sentence.

    Great report, ms mac! The removal of that death feeling after a load of carbs is definitely nice.
