    Anyone heard of Green Tomato Extract?


    A co-worker of mine was talking about it today and I did a search and found nothing but did a google and found mostly items in reference to anti hep-c properties.

    Any BB properties anyone is aware of?

    Thanks for the heads up. He mentioned that product but it slipped my mind by the time I made it to a computer to look for it.

    You know I did a search for that product and a thread titled with Green Tomatoe Extract came up but it didn't when I did a search for it. Strange.

    While I was at The Arnold working the MN booth I was approached by a naturopath. At one point in our very long discussion he mentioned Endothil-CR and seemed to be rather impressed by teh product. I maintained that the doses were far too low to exert any benefit.

    But, in the name of research, I was able to convince the guys at the Endothil booth to give me enough for about a week worth of use to see just how effective it is for bodybuilding applications. I"ll report on it at the end of next week.

    One thing I noticed was that the package says to "Chew the tablet and savor the flavor for a long period of time before swallowing." Perhaps their intent is sublingual absorption. If so, that may be the secret to the product... assuming of course that it does indeed work.

    Considering they were right aside of us, we picked up quite a few packets as well.

    Curiousity got tha best of Joey, and he 'savored tha flavor' Saturday night at dinner after some shenanigans.

    It was quite amusing, but it was one of those moments that you genuinely had to be there to appreciate.

    We are actually picking up this product next week, because we have had so many requests for it. From the walk in customers that have tried it they say it works.

    So, I've heard. The naturopath guy was dead set on me believing how good it was. He was talking really fast, probably had too many free samples of Methyl-Speed.

    lol, I wish I coulda been their. I can't imagine the Endothil tasting too good. I really respect Joey's philosophy. And I think I left my MAN shirts in the X-Factor booth. Still seeing if anyone picked them up.

    When I saw this stuff for sale at a local shop the guy was trying to describe it to me as being just like IGF. He didnít know what IGF was when I mentioned it however. Said it created new muscle cells and caused lots of growth of course I got weird looks when I said "awww satellite cells" .This is when I started ignoring him. Green tomato sounds more like a good antioxidant from what Ive read on it.

    Supplement Facts:

    Serving Size: 1 Tablet
    Servings Per Container: 30

    Amount Per Serving:

    Calories 0
    Total Carbohydrates 0g
    Sugars 0g

    Riboflavin 6.8mg 400%
    Proprietary Blend 9mg
    -Green Tomato SE
    -Grape Seed SE
    -Grean Tea SE
    -Quercetin
    -Rutin

    Other Ingredients:
    Cane sugar, tomato powder, mono-and diglycerides, salt stearic acid, natural flavors, FD&C red #40 lake, magnesium stearate, and silica.

    Directions: On workout days, take 1 tablet 30 minutes before your workout. On non workout days, take 1 tablet in the morning. Chew the tablet slowly and savor the flavor for a long period of time before swallowing.

    Even though it might be absorbed sublingually they amounts are still too low to exert much effect. I doubt the few mg of tomato extract will do much of anything. And the few mg of the other ingredients definietly won't do sh*t.

    On top of it they require you to alter your workouts to isolate one muscle group. That alone will produce results for most and is likely the reason why people see results.
