Can anyone recommend a good source of high quality nettle root? I'm also curious to see how much people are taking.
BAC has Nettle Root Extract (100:1, I believe). That should make it much easier to dose high amounts.
Great. I don't know why I didn't think to check there first. Looks like I'll be doing a lot of capping.Originally Posted by Beau
Why not just have the trouble and get DS Activate?
what the hell. thats werid.
Can you please tell me what I just watched?
That’s not completely true. A couple of months ago I had Life Extension’s “Male LE Panel” bloodwork done which tested for Free Testosterone among other things. I then began taking 2 capsules per day of Solaray brand of Nettle Root which is comprised of 300mg of Root extract and 150mg of Nettle Root per capsule. Within the first day I began to feel a libido boost which remained for about 10 days. I continued dosage for two more weeks (three weeks total). I then retested with Life Extension. The results indicated a moderate increase in Free Testosterone.Originally Posted by Robboe
There is a medical study examining Nettle Root ligans of which you are no doubt familiar which found 10 ligans out of 11 have an affinity to bind to human sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). However one ligan in particular I believe was better by a factor of 10. That ligan is the one you have claimed to have isolated and included in supra-dosage in your product. So your product should work better than Nettle Root.
From my limited examination of Nettle Root it appears that it is adaptagenic (meaning it can Free Testosterone to a “normal” or balanced level but not beyond). Have you any indication whether your product Activate (w/ the isolated ligan) is capable of pushing Free Testosterone to above “normal” levels?
Thank you for bringing out such a high quality botanical product. I think I would like to give it a try.
Interesting thread. Nettle Root seems to have a lot of positive properties in addition to it's effects on free testosterone.Originally Posted by meowmeow
I came across a writeup of Nettle Root that said this:
"The prostate gland also benefits from nettle root. In Germany, nettle root has been used as a treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlargement of the prostate gland) for decades. A metabolite of testosterone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) stimulates prostate growth, leading to enlargement. Nettle root inhibits the binding of DHT to attachment sites on the prostate membrane."
I have been drinking Nettle Tea lately because I've had a cold w/ congestion that seems to be lingering for weeks. It is supposed to help improve upper respiratory health.
Is that right, yeah? ten out of eleven? I think i have that paper but i've not read it myself. Brian (shadowjack) will have though. I'll not lie, the only stuff i've read is on divanil due to the product.Originally Posted by meowmeow
Someone had a theory on avant that one of the lignans found in nettle root my oppose the effects of divanil, but i've not been able to locate it with the avant forum shuffle and the fact that the search function there doesn't work.
We've had people do bloodwork showing anything between 30-60% increases in free testosterone from baseline. I have 23 of them saved somewhere, but i'm sure there are 2-3 more than i've been kicking myself for not saving anywhere.From my limited examination of Nettle Root it appears that it is adaptagenic (meaning it can restore Free Testosterone to a “normal” or balanced level but not beyond). Have you any indication whether your product Activate (w/ the isolated ligan) is capable of pushing Free Testosterone to above “normal” levels?
(the 60% result was on this board [AM.com]).
And the anecdotal reports have been phenomenal.
LOL it's a cartoon series from David Firth called Salad Fingers. It is a very messed up, psychotic series and there was one episode entitled "Nettles" that I just couldn't resist posting. The other videos from that series (there's about 7 of them) are also extremely twisted.Originally Posted by Niko
hum, i would say so.
Wow that is impessive. My bloodwork showed only an increase of about 6% from the Nettle Root alone. That was statisticly significant but no where near the levels you are reporting for Activate.Originally Posted by Robboe
It would be interesting to run Activate for 6 months and measure Free Test before starting and at intervals of 1 month to see if the increase can be sustained.
I'll be honest and say it is the libido increase that most interests me...so when I get some time I will have to give Activate a go.
Divanil is the DS trade name for 3,4-divanillyltetrahydrofuran thats the extract u wanna get ur hands on
it would be great to see some powder
maybe we should talk to CNW?Originally Posted by wastedwhiteboy2
I gotta wonder how much it is per kilo and what the min order is
Ive been in contact with them...a 15g sample is 100USD. That's pretty high, considering you can get 48g in a bottle of Activate for ~$40.00.
