  3. Methoxy-7 from Biotest (new formula)- Bought 3 bottles of it from GNC (all different locations). Tried the first bottle for the 2 weeks and it did nothing. Tried the next two bottles 2 weeks later at double the dosage and it did nothing. Took them all back for full refund.

    Anything in the Animal line from Universal is ****. It is all underdosed stacks with useless ingredients.

  4. I also went through 3 bottles of Methoxy 7, and felt nothing at all. Didn't ask for a refund, as I have a couple of friends, very strong guys who swear they got noticeably stronger on this stuff. Same with Tribex 500. I went through 3 bottles, yet lots of people swear it works, and the old worn-out "placebo effect" argument just doesn't hold water, as I never hold out great hopes for things to work, and I'm always pleasantly surprised when they do. A lot of experienced lifters have gone through many supps with NO results. When a serious Bodybuilder claims results, he well knows the difference between placebo and the real mccoy!

    We are all different and our individual reactions to supplements varies greatly. I have tried nearly every brand of creatine except V-12, and got no results at all. I have combined it with dextrose, grape juice, apple cider and water....nothing! I even went through 2 cans of Sci-Tec Trans-X, similar to Cell-Tech, but with a better rep, and guess what. I gained 5 lbs of FAT! Why didn't "placebo" come into play here? I was expecting dramatic results on this one!

    My ex-wife took chromium for a couple of years as an appetite suppressant to curb her craving for sweets, and in her case, it worked like a charm.

    So I have trouble listing a supplement as a scam or totally innefective if it works for some and not others.

  5. But if the majority of people who do use Chromium see no results, then its still ineffective for the majority. Maybe not a scam, but still ineffective. Old man...

    good, it's not just me! have you thought about, or are you planning on going with V12 anytime soon?

    also, was your ex into nutrition and fitness, or did she watch her diet at all? I ask this only because there IS a good body of evidence supporting Cr's use in obese (not calling her fat or anything), or those already suffering from insensitivity (which I would assume, since the "average" person is far less cautious about watching processed carb intake and mineral deficiencies , is why results ARE seen in this area as opposed to healthy/resistance trained/athletic/nutritious minded individuals).. I just didn't post those, as I tried to stick with what was more pertinent (there are also ****loads of studies showing the same results on rats, cats, mice, calves, etc, I just didn't post those for the same reason)

    I've had the same problem with creatine. There was a study somewhere in MEDSCAPE that basically said that the use of creatine becomes less effective on people as they age. Supposedly, the older you get, the less effective creatine will be.

    I'll try to find that article again. When I do, I'll post it or the link to it.
