    Question Input on custom GDA vs branded


    In the past I've used Anabolic Pump, original SS, Glycobol and Recompdrol. I used Recompadrol for a long time as it was my favorite in regards to being able to stay lean while increasing calories. When it went out of stock for a while I started using my own formulation from CustomCapsule with good results.

    Not for any particular reason, but I decided to one again try the branded GDAs out there. I am lined up to try both SSv2 and Slintensity based on the good feedback both have been getting.

    However, I am always looking to tweak the home-made one and have done so several times now with the feedback provided from this board. That being said, here is my latest profile (in case I want to go back the home made route again):

    Ingredients
    Gymnema Sylvestre (75% Gymnemic Acids) 250MG
    Na R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (NaR-ALA) 150MG
    Banaba Leaf (1% Corosolic Acid) 125MG
    Bitter Melon Ext. (10% Charantin) 100MG
    L-Norvaline 100MG
    Fenugreek PE 50% 100MG
    Chromium (Chromium Polynicotinate 200MG


    Also should note I take 1gm of Agmatine and 1.5gm of ALCAR each morning.

    Any feedback, as always, is greatly appreciated.
    For now, on to SSv2

    Thanks!

    Looks good. Jowever their fenugreek isn't 4 hydroxyisoleucine

    Also I would contact custom capsule before buying as they haven't responded to various people on their sub forum

    But recompadrol is back in stock and more is ordered and on the way in a couple weeks. Flow will continue to be there

    Thanks for the reply. I am definitely planning on working Recompadrol back into the rotation as it has always been my favorite.

    For what it's worth I've been ordering from CustomerCapsule about every other month for the past year with no issues. Usually get my order within 5-7 business days. I have not yet had to contact them so can't comment on their responsiveness to emails.

    Thanks again.

    If you would like to buy in bulk:

    Na-R-Ala
    Agmatine
    Pterostilbene

    Otherwise:

    Genomyx SSv2
    EBF Recompadrol
    SPP Slintensity

    All top notch.

    Yea but for a multi ingredient product it takes up to much room in a capsule

    I don't think you can go wrong with SPP Slintensity, ingredients are top notch and Matt never seems to let me down with his formulations.

    Though Im biased, I think youll be very happy with SSv2. It is much improved over the OG and we have received great feedback since release.


    I use it daily.

    How would you compare your results with your custom caps to any of the brand names?

    I am already taking SNS Agamatine (1GM) and ALCAR (1.5GM) daily (per a recommendation you made to one of my other posts).
    I figured I will be getting the Na R-ALA from either the SSv2 or my homemade one.

    So far so good. I get very similar results in regards to being able to stay lean, avoiding the bloated feeling after large carb meals, etc. that I experienced from the brand names. Also, cost seems to be favorable through CC depending on the ingredient profile (I've been through five versions) or at least comparable.
