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

    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.

    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

    Cissus focuses more on glucocorticoids from what I have read.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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...
