GDA's??

  1. GDA's??


    Hello. I've been using glycolog for the past few weeks and it's causing digestive issues. I remember years ago using CLA, GLA, R ALA, Etc. to help with glucose disposal. Unfortunately I can't remember the exact recipe or dose. I'm currently up to 370 g of carbs and these sups help me stay lean.
    Would anyone know what specific ingredient in glycolog would cause loose stools and stomach upset and/or recommend other singular products (I can use in place of) so I don't pile on the body fat? Thank you in advance.
    If you think you can or you can't, you're right!

    I think therefore I can!


  2. Project AD do one called Matador which you may fair better on

  4. Thanks for the help fellas. I am familiar with the product mentioned. (Had to google matador a couple days ago since it was a new one to me). Maybe I wasn't clear in my initial post. I wasn't looking for an all in one supplement but rather individual supplements I can take separately. Like GLA, ALA, CLA etc. I am a little gun shy of buying another all in one and having similar issues. This way I can add or subtract as needed.

    @kbayne is the guy to ask on this. He is very good at knowing the bulks for making a homemade GDA

    berberine (taken away from training)
    300-400mg NA-R-ALA would be a good bulk prior to training

  6. I saw that there was a BOGO deal on Supplement Centeal for Slinmax, I've used it in the past and had great partitioning results. Makes for great pumps and muscle fullness

  7. I've made my own, used Slinsane, Slinmax, Recompadrol, Neovar, Need2slin, Burn24, and now using Slintensity. It's without a doubt my favorite since Recompadrol went off the market.

    Why berberine taken away from training? I'm suspecting that to be the ingredient that's causing me issues and I take it roughly 60 to 75 minutes prior to training.

    Hard to go wrong with an EvoMuse product

    The clyco isn't preventing you from putting on body fat lol. That supplement doesn't magically erase ingested calories.

    Cinnamon might do this or the gymnema leaf extract in my opinion.

    For the other options, I would just play around with berberine, banaba leaf, fenugreek, white kidney bean extract, etc. and see how you feel.

    I ended up sticking to white kidney bean and fenugreek extract, as it is cheap and does in my experience as well as the, imo, pretty expensive gda options. Throw in some agmatine as well, and you will be fine

  13. This is the absolute first supplement you should buy when talking "Glucose Disposal" - you can find it pretty cheap at Walmart:

    A Glucose Meter and Test Strips



    Then try the cheap stuff doing 30/60/90/120 "Post" readings. 3g Cinnamon per ~30 C, Berberine, Banaba, Chromium, Gymnema Sylvestre, etc... Swanson has them all.

  14. SNS Glycophase has 3 of the above ingredients mentioned. At a good price if you search around a little. Pretty solid overall formula.
    It's Bea, fcker. Bea Mother****ing Arthur. Dammit........lol

  17. Since Recompadrol was discontinued, I have been primarily using Evomuse Slintensity and also SNS Glycophase. I also play with bulk GDA ingredients and sometimes make my own combo by combining the above products with additional bulk ingredients.

    4th in to reccommend SlinMax

  19. solos for regular use...

    Na-R-Ala
    Bitter Melon
    Agmatine
    ALCAR

    if you do want an all in one, my absolute go to would be slintensity...no affiliation, just the best I have found through trial and error. all in ones treat everyone a little diff so you may have to test a few if you want to go that route.

    be cautious with regular usage of gymnema and berberine though. They certainly have a role, but should for specific purposes

    It's working well. I can slam 400 g of carbohydrates and be lean and dry. Can't do that otherwise :/Unfortunately it's causing increasingly worse stomach upset.
    If you think you can or you can't, you're right!

    I think therefore I can!

  21. Thank you everyone for the replies.

  22. Another vote for SlinMax if you do decide to go for a premade GDA

    For bulks, no need to look any further than:

    ALA (600-1200mg), R-ALA (300-600mg), or Na-R-ALA (300-600mg)
    Agmatine (500-2000mg per day)

    ALCAR goes well with ALA as well.

    If you want further assistance, berberine (500-1500mg per day).

    is there any ingredient you would avoid around a workout? Would it be overkill to stack berberine and NA-R-ALA + Agmatine for high carb meals?

    Thanks for the breakdown, I've been curious regarding proper dosing for some time now, the only one I was nearly 100% sure of was agmatine
