    Anabeta vs. Anabeta Elite


    Right now, i'm bulking, running X-gels, LCLT, GMS, etc. I've read many posts saying that these two products are great for bulking (particularly alongside ARA) and they got me interested. Which one would be better and why?

    Both are great for bulking. Many recommend going with AB over ABE for bulking and go with ABE for a recomp/cut.

    So if bulking is your main goal, I would opt for AB.

    I've been reading around and this is what I found:

    Forskolin - increased fat loss, MILDLY increased testosterone and LBM
    7-beta-hydroxy-dehydoepiandrosterone - reduced cortisol = reduced adipogenesis and proliferation. Reduction of lipoylsis that is anecdotally overpowered by the former effects

    Does the added Forskolin in ABE make a decent impact in lean mass gain during a bulk? Also I've tried searching up what adipogenesis and proliferation are. However, I couldn't find anything in layman terms. Anyway, I'm leaning towards Anabeta (Non Elite) right now.

    Anabeta for a bulk and Anabeta Elite for more of a recomp/cut.

    Both are stellar products though.

    Yes, Forskolin will have an impact on LBM gains. The reason I say ABE is more geared towards a recomp/cut is because of the Forskolin and the effects it has on body composition.

    Ok thanks guys, I think im going with the original. What should I expect from this product? Increased hunger, nutrient partitioning, strength gains, vascularity? What else?

    For the most part, yes you will see all of those effects taking place but it really depends on the user and diet. But AB will help with all the above you listed.

    Forskolin helps with LBM gain signficantly enough to reach physiological significance in human trials. My post on 7-Oh basically says it prevents you from making fat cells.

    IF you wanted, you could dose a Cissus product 4-6hrs+ away from X-gels to help ease the joint issues.

    Bumpin up an old thread. Should I add in xgels with anabeta elite if I plan on cutting or would anabeta elite by itself be enough? I'm also guessing that preworkout won't be needed as pump should be insane already. What about taking creatine on anabeta?

    While it is not necessary at all, the addition of X-Gels would go nicely with ABE. Also, a pre-workout isn't necessary either but neither products main goal is to aid in pump (although they more then likely will give pumps in the gym). No issues with creatine and ABE.

    ABE Experience


    I've never used original AB but I recently used ABE. I was impressed with its potency. I saw an improvement in abdominal definition within 30 days. Both appetite and strength increased. The downsides:

    1. The effect on my libido was excessive. Constant erections throughout the day. Sounds interesting at first glance but there's nothing fun about raging erections while sitting at work.

    2. Caused a fairly severe back breakout. The acne was bad. I'm prone but ABE intensified it.

    Given the foregoing, I'm wondering which ingredient is contributing to the androgenicity (if anyone knows, please weigh in). Still, ABE is a very legitimate OTC supplement.

    Good luck,
    Monte

    X-gels would compliment ABE very nicely. I use glycophase + x-gels + ABE + agmatine and the all day pump is definitely noticeable. While a pre isn't necessary, Enhanced is a great option is you choose to go down that route.

    The acne I associate with Anabeta. I used to be prone to breakouts but haven't done in a long time but when I used Anabeta it increased (mostly on my back). Nothing problematic so I continue to use it. Because acne is a complex beast, i'm not exactly sure what is causing it.

    a little bit off topic:

    But is it oke to stack winstrol and ABE together?
    Most people take ABE in pct, but can you stack the two?

    I'm no pro in those kind of products, but I don't know why you would add it to a hormonal cycle. Add it to a proper PCT for the best benefits IMO.

    bulk would be Anabeta. Recomp/Cut Anabeta Elite but i prefer Anabeta + Forskolin-95 for a cut/recomp over Anabeta Elite.

    The anacylus pyrethrum would be the culprit.

    Mechka, thanks. I guess that would rule out AB and ABE for me since that is an ingredient in both. Felt like it was a little too androgenic for me. Thanks,Monte

    Jiigzz, thanks. It seems the Anacyclus pyrethrum DC Extract is too androgenic for me. My acne was problematic. It's a shame because the ABE was effective. Monte

    I personally have never noticed any form of increased acne from AnaBeta.

    I have used a few bottles in my time.

    Can't say that Anabeta has caused any acne for me either. I haven't ran quite as many bottles as BDCCaholic but I've tossed down a few caps.

    Everyone's body chemistry is different. Acne has been an issue for most of my adult life. Unfortunately, ABE intensified it. Figures - I find a supplement that works but I can't deal with the sides. Such is life.

    I don't think Anabeta is Androgenic. The acne could be related to something else about anabeta.

    Why worry about something like acne though?. Is that you are just young and single?. Still even, then if its only for the duration of you Anabeta cycle, wouldn't you say its worth it?

    T-bone, it was so bad I was embarrassed to take off my shirt. I suppose I could grin and bear it or just use it in the winter. But that still wouldn't address the constant erection issue. The acne and the erections led me to believe there was androgenic component. I tend to avoid androgenic compounds. It's a shame because I noticed improved workouts, strength and leanness.

    It is almost Winter now though. No need to take off your shirt, unless you are a swimmer or something?. Besides, who cares what other people think, that shouldn't cause you to not use a product. It's like you are letting other peoples opinion of you stop you from using your favorite product. In a sense they are controlling you. I'm just saying, Monte if you like it, use it.

    I like that thought process T-bone. I know when I find something that works I won't stop from a side effect short of health risk. I also see the other side of the spectrum though.

    T, I hear you, bro. I haven't written it off yet. I had bad acne as a teenager and it scarred me mentally. Bad breakouts now remind me of those days. My back has always been a weak spot in terms of acne. It is terribly frustrating.

    Best,

    I would deem Anacyclus pyrethrum D.C. androgenic - however the literature is pertaining to rats. Alkylamides seem to be known historically for there libido effects, but more research will be needed (in humans) to deem how androgenic the compound(s) are.

    Definitely noticed the libido impact. It was very pronounced. Is all of the research in rats? Nothing has been done in humans?
