  1. best cortisol blocker poll


    So what is the best cortisol blocker, not including fat loss, just cortisol blocking?


  2. found this might have some useful info for everyone. i havent read it all yet tho' thought i would share Biology of Kundalini - Hormones

  3. I have tried retain twice, and really liked it.

  4. LX did not do much for me..nothing that I could notice anyway. Retain..I have had to lower the dose after 2 weeks because all of my joints were aching. My jaw tendons were sore to the point I could hardly open my mouth (Rebound Reloaded may have also contributed to this phenom). It has provided serious damage control in PCT and I have probably lost a little fat despite keeping calories high.

  5. I have not used LX, but have used retain and i think its the s***.

  6. what about cissus?

  8. A lot of herbs have the ability to lower cortisol levels

    Cissus
    Rhodiola
    Bacopa
    Ashwaganda
    Magnolia Bark

    Not sure what the specific mechanisms are, or how suppressive they are

  9. Cissus focuses more on glucocorticoids from what I have read.

  10. Lean Xtreme works for me during PCT, I use 4 caps a day.

    Since the plant sterols are only idnetified by their chemical formulas, we have no way of knowing how strongly they bind to the AR. But this issue is likely muted by the overall poor bioavailability of plant sterols in general. While these compounds may contribute a minor anabolic (and suppressive) effect, the primary mode of action of Cissus is blocking the catabolic action of cortisol.

  12. Relacore !!!!!!!!!!!!

    jk lol
    I have had the best luck with Retain.

  13. I participated in the lean extreme bloodwork test a while back....

    Lean Xtreme Bloodwork

    had final blood work drawn last Monday and will send them along to Robboe once I get them this week. Bottom line is... the results speak for themselves. I was very happy with the results of LX. Only problem is.... I have nothing to compare it too...... Nevertheless, I will continue to use LX in the future because I know it works for me.

  14. i would have to say retain i used it during pct and it worked well

  15. Adaptogens like the ones that Sinner mentioned earlier help one cope with stress and mellow you out, less stress means less cortisol. Cortisol is, after all the stress hormone.

  16. LX has worked very well for me...

  17. I'd like to see bloodwork from the others. we have seen what LX does.

  18. for those that answered other, could you specify what your "other" is?

    Could you elaborate on this?

    I know it's been known to lower cortisol, but I don't know how, or by how much.

  22. Retain- NO QUESTION.

  23. While not on the poll list, I had very very good results from two months worth of Blaze Xtreme. Oddly, I noticed some significant depression coming off of it. Thankfully it only lasted a few days.

  24. cissus is not a GREAT cortisol blocker

    ive been on it fo about 8 months and still have some belly fat which i attribute to cortisol

    well cissus is not a fat burner! it is probably your diet that has kept your belly fat there not cortisol.

    not my diet. i am 100% sure cortisol is to blame for my belly fat (if u wanna call i that)

    bulk rhodiola over bulk cissus any day

    Cissus has been studied and more powerFULL than nandrolone as an anticorticoid.

  28. I have used phosphatidyl and Lean Xtreme and so far LX has been the best I have taken thus far.

  29. Another benefit of Cissus i must try this at once! I'm startin to feel some shoulder and knee discomfort so i need a joint supp anyway.

  30. Retain worked the best for me

  31. Thyrogen-X should be up there.

  32. Isn't vitamin C supposed to help lower cortisol?

  33. I've used lean xtreme and reduce-xt.

    Reduce-xt caused minor heart palpitations once in a while.

    Lean Xtreme didn't cause any noticeable problems. I like lean XT better.

    a few studies have shown 3g a day made a noticeable difference.

  35. Is the Retain this poll is referring to ALRI's brand or Anabolic Xtreme's brand?

  36. Is the Retain from AX same as the one from ALRI? Also, what dosages do you guys take for Retain?

  37. I found out ALRI sold Retain to AX, so yes, it is the same.

  38. ive taken LXT and retain and felt the effects of Retain more then i did with LXT.

    but certainly effective and helped out during PCT.

  39. Lean Xtreme is the sh*t... Ive used both retain and LX for post cycle to reduce cortisol and LX straight ripped me up while I was consuming an insane amount of calories... I dont think I will ever use anything else...
