Muscle Specific GDA

  1. Muscle Specific GDA


    Are there any?

    From all the research and threads I've encountered, not once have I read that a glucose disposal agent ingredient would be muscle specific.

    If anything, can we suppose that the most we'd want to accomplish before a cheat meal/heavy carb load would be reduced blood sugar?


  2. TUDCA may be.

    Not at an economically feasible dosage, though.

  3. You also need to differentiate between products that have GDA properties and ones that promote insulin sensitivity.

    For a body recomp position, we don't want total enhanced insulin sensitivity due to insulin acting on both muscle and fat cells.

    We also do not want enhanced glut-4 expression because glut-4 is located in skeletal muscle and adipose tissue.

    Thus to get the most out of carbs, instead of the aforementioned, and instead of delaying/preventing glucose absorbtion (GCB or gymnema), how can we create an optimal situation for shuttling glucose into skeletal muscle without affecting fat? (besides working out)

    Correct, I was referring to muscle insulin sensitivity as opposed to adipose insulin sensitivity.

    There aren't many compounds that I can think if that take preference for muscle.

    This. Berberine is unique in that it activates Glut4 but also blocks PPAR gamma, thus making it tissue specific to muscle tissue.

    May I have a source please?

  12. Thanks. But, what about atrogin-1 and suppressing muscle hypertrophy?

    Working would theoretically blunt this, but still there are no guarantees.

    This shows inhibition of PPAR gamma:
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/19767038/

    PPAR gamma agonists activate GLUT4 translocation. PPAR gamma is present primarily in adipocytes. So by inhibiting PPAR gamma, berberine will not cause GLUT4 translocation in adipocytes.

    Hope this helps.

    I'd think anything increasing AMPk would be considered something "suppressing hypertrophy", how to an appreciable amount? Doubt it.

    Anecdotally I have never noticed it. By far one of my favorite ingredients regardless of goals.

  17. Good thread, Ive actually noticed that I gain fat easier with some GDA products. With that in mind, Recompadrol is my go-to now, dont even bother with those that actually slow my progress.

    EFB has addressed this in a thread before stating that the amount of suppression is negligible, regardless the glut4 activation greatly outweighs the amount of suppression

    Do you typically cap this yourself or take as powder?

    I haven't tried it yet. I bought a bottle and am planning to start taking it this week. Heard it tastes awful might wrap it up in something digestible and swallow it that way if it tastes too horrid

  26. I can assure you that you DO NOT want to just throw it in the mouth and chase it with water. It is by far the worst tasting supplement/thing you will ever try. I would at least parachute it.

    Or try it, video it, and let us watch haha.

    I've chugged it and gotten used to it. Cissus is much more tolerable than berberine though. However it stains everything horribly.

    I went through a 50 gram bottle and never got used to it lol. I did the parachute method whenever I could.

  30. What about playing around with turmeric?

    Increased glycogen = fuller muscles. This looks like you can increase muscle glycogen while burning fat through AMPK.
