    Increased glycogen = fuller muscles. This looks like you can increase muscle glycogen while burning fat through AMPK.
    Has bioavailability problems. I got some meriva phytosomal curcumin on a sale which is supposed to be the best kind and I still don't think it worked

    I remember discussing this with you before, but is Mervia still considered number 1? What were some of the other options?

    From what I've read, bioperine greatly increases bioavailabiliy.

  4. Berberine uncapped worse than cissus lol. No thanks.

    I think the meriva is still supposed to be the best. I tried two big bottles (Source Naturals brand) and stopped caring when that did nothing perceivable for me so I dunno if anythings changed

  6. The way I can describe the taste of yellow gold is burnt rubber. If you have ever smelled that smell after someone burned rubber, just imagine what it would taste like. Nothing can cover up that taste.

    Yep it is horrible. I can tolerate bulk cissus powder by chugging it in a little bit of water but Berberine is way worse so if you can't handle cissus don't even bother trying bulk berberine. Cissus is nice in that it doesn't linger like berberine. Berberine will hang around for an hour or so after it's that bad. I didn't believe it at first so I tried it myself and all accounts are true. I capped 100 grams before which is a pain in the ass but some powder still gets on the side of the caps so when I take it I get a little bit of that delicious residue. I would just stick to a good GDA that includes berberine unless you have time to cap the bulk powder. Burn 24 is the best imo followed by Recompadrol. They work better than straight berberine in my exp,. anyway but I would never use a GDA that didn't include it as I think it is the all star of any good formulation.

    lifting weights increases AMPK

  9. also Anabolic Pump (AP) is the only GDA shown to work acutely in healthy males that exercise.

    Yet to try AP still. Not sure why I haven't gave it a go yet.

  11. Interesting read on glucose lowering effects and increased glut-4 expression of isoleucine:

    http://ajpendo.physiology.org/conten...E1683.full.pdf

    0.45g/kg was the dose given. For a 70kg human that's 5.11 grams.

    Just bought some from nutrabio, so I'll run an experiment on my next carb up and update the thread.

    Recent investigations have revealed that the energy excess derived from amino acids activates mTOR and/or S6K1, which leads to insulin resistance (20, 21, 35). However, the single amino acid isoleucine decreases blood glucose through a si- multaneous increase in glucose utilization that actually im- proves glucose metabolism and energy states of both the muscle and liver (Fig. 8). Although the molecular basis of these findings remains to be determined, elucidation of the associa- tions related to these factors when using isoleucine may pro- vide new insights into the role of amino acids on metabolic disorders related to insulin resistance.

    In conclusion, our study revealed that isoleucine lowers blood glucose levels by both stimulation of the muscle glucose uptake and an increase in glucose oxidation within the whole body without significant elevation of plasma insulin levels. Our study also showed that isoleucine reduces hepatic glucose production in vitro and the expression and activity of hepatic gluconeogenic enzymes both in vitro and in vivo. By achieving a better understanding of the mechanism of isoleucine’s activ- ity, this may potentially provide important information relevant to the effects of amino acids on glucose metabolism.

    lol, exactly. Better avoid ALCAR as well.
