    Sesamin Caps VS Sesathin


    From time to time I have seen various suggestions that sesamin caps do not work as effectively as the Avant Sesathin Liquid. I have also noticed this and was wondering why this is? The caps are so much more convenient (I once lost a new bottle of sesathin by leaving it in a hot car for about 3 hours by accident). I'd like to consolidate everyone's feelings about the differences in this thread. Please weigh in if you've tried either or both of these products.

    I have only used the sesathin liquid by Avant Labs and I love it, I have never used the caps but can definetly vouch for the liquid.

    I seemed to notice that as well. The liquid def kicked ass, I honestly couldnt tell you if the caps are working or not. But, I tend to keep all my supps in what i refer to as a "MAN BAG" and that will end up in the car from time to time (ya, a man purse i guess you could say). Also, I live in FL so I might me baking the caps everytime I get them and store in the car occasionally, where as I kept the liquid in the fridge. I'm ready to try the liquid again.

    I'm pretty sure that Scivation had a positive COA done on their sesamin so it is the real deal, but for some reason (carrier?) the caps don't seem to be as effective. I'd imagine you'd still get some of the benefits though. Maybe upping dosage or something. I'm thinking of doing the DCP, AP, Sesathin stack. Any word on that DCP/Sesathin sale DSade?

    Our price for the liquid will always be just a little bit higher (we've got out reasons, if it could go lower we would!), but its commentary like the stuff in this thread that justifies it. Thanks fellas.

    I used to just drink it, very scientific. You can use a metal measuring spoon as well. The fun is trying to be a tightwad and putting hot water into the almost empty bottle to get the last bit out. Bet I'm the only one that's done that...yeah right.

    For a few reasons (1 I have alot of SesaThin around, and 2 I've been taking it for so long) I drink it straight from the bottle and usually get about 25-30 days out of it. .

    I remember when we first started manufacturing it, I had some extra Lipoderm bottles. I filled a bottle with straight Sesathin and would keep it on my desk.

    I would do a few squirts every few hours or so...Good Times.

    Anyone care to speculate why the scivation sesamin caps don't work as well? Underdosed or less pure materials? I got 2 bottles...mabye run a higher dose?

    Interesting... I've only tried scivation sesamin and CL sesaglow, does wonders for the skin, but fatloss was not as impressive as I would have liked, might give it another shot with the liquid

    I agree with most of the people on here. The liquid sesathin seemed to work very well, but I cannot tell if the sesamin stuff does anything but I still will take it assuming they are the same thing.

    My wife took it and it didn't seem to do jack for her. Sesathin is on my "To Do" list. There's the plug, now send me a case of this stuff.

    Graduating from Double. Didnt start it to long ago though. I like Sesamin to keep the fat gain on PCT down. I Loved SesaThin for that reason, but gave the caps a run since they were so cheap, and had a COA. Serves me right though. Dont fix something thats not broke. When the DCP/Sesathin goes up (If it does), I will be ordering my weights worth on that one!!!!

    This thread gave me some food for thought, something I'd imagine we all are wondering about...

    Anyone look into the efficacy of EFAs when taken in softgel form versus liquid? I've been carrying the softgels with me for years to use when I am on the go, and have my liquid EFAs in the fridge at home. I probably use 50/50 liquid and softgels for my EFA supplements. Results seem no different than when I was a poor college student 10 years ago using only the liquids.

    Never before this thread have I wondered if the softgels were working or not....hmm....

    Does taking Sesathin or Seamin replace the need to take fish oil/flax? I've been taking fish oil to help with my psoriasis.

    I think it's highly recommended to take sesamin WITH your fish oils.

    for those who have tried both, how much "better" or effective was the liquid? Did the caps work at all for your fatloss purposes?

    I've tried both. I Loved the liquid myself, and never seen anything about this prior to buying a YEARS worth of the caps. But right now Im on the Caps at triple dose, but it is to soon to tell the effectiveness. I will post up my thoughts after a bit of time.

    It has to be the delivery method, because I remember both are standardized for the same linigans per serving (Looking at my first bottle of SesaThin.)

    In this industry, It's important to reward the true innovators. Avant brought this product to the masses long before the others jumped on board. Once it became a popular product others started selling it.

    If you want companies like Avant, RPN, and USP to keep bringing novel products and unique compounds they have to get some kind of return on their R&D investment.
