    Icariin


    i have a bunch of purified Icariin (from horny goat wood) sitting around here and i have never done anything with it.

    Because i am lazy i am going to ask people here to suggest a dose for me to take cuz i figure i might as well try the stuff. I know all about it and what it is purported to do, i just dunno the dosages offhand and i don't feel like looking it all up right now

    if i feel energized from it i might put it in clear shot or something i dunno

    What purity?

    For 50%, we were recommending around 400-500mg.

    It's pretty potent stuff even at 50%. Supposedly there is a 98% extract advertised by some Chinese labs but who knows if it's real.

    I'm 185 and have taken upwards of a gram of the 50% for extended periods. Didn't have any problems except one incident of light-headedness/blurred vision during a very heavy lift.

    the 98% samples we have gotten...aren't.

    50 is the most reliable I have seen, though there is a supplier contacting me with a 60. We will see.

    I did find a great deal on some 40%, so we might be bringing that in VERY soon until the supply chain mellows out from China.

    I've used up to 3 grams of 20% split up into 3 doses. Did that for a while. It's worked great for energy and libido but it lost it's effectiveness after about 6 weeks. It still worked but just not as much as in the beginning. Now I just use 2 grams of 20% before a workout only and I get awesome energy and pumps. I like taking it before a workout better. I've actually built more muscle taking it preworkout than spread throughout the day.

    Have you tried a higher dosages since going down to 2 grams? Or are you comfortable that your getting the best results keeping the same dosage?

    Icariin has some PDE-5 inhibition, so I would say side effects would run that way (congestion, headache, blood from rectum, etc.)

    Still a new compound at these purities, so I don't think anyone has a definite cutoff for dosage.

    Since I just take it PreWorkout, I've used anywhere from 500mg to 2.5 grams. 2.5 grams gave me a headache everytime. So I just lowered it to 2 grams and no headaches. It hasnt lost effectiveness so I dont plan on changing the amount.

    Crap that sucks. I can just see the form sheet now:

    Who will you be with?
    - How the f@%k do I know? Pretty much any attractive female I meet will be fair game. Can I just cover the bases with: Jenna, Heather, Angela, Tracy, Amy, Stephanie, Candy and KiKi? Do I get a fine if I don't end up "with" any of the girls?

    Ouch - I feel for you man. (Although your excuse is much better than mine, lol)

    BTW - although pricey, I did enjoy 11-oxo (3 bottles).
    I took it with some other stuff, so it's difficult to pinpoint which product(s) specifically made the most difference - but something worked, and that's all I cared about.

    I would probally run it 400mg the first time to access you tolerance - I'm sure you don't want to splat crap all over the place during a heavy lift. Any thing above 500mg gives me the shiits something fierce! Of course that is with 50%...

    Let us know how it works out for ya

    unfortunately Icariin is not soluble in water so it appears we won't be able to include it in clear shot

    when you say potent what does it do for you. please be specific.
    Most notable is vasodialation of ..everything. Muscles become way more inflated, vascularity increases dramatically, my unit hangs way lower. There also seems to be some thermogenic ability as I feel warm/hot all the time..though that might just be me as I was running a bit high in the thyroid department at the time.

    Increase in cardio perfomance and slight increase in strength.

    Makes workouts fun..the way arginine products are supposed to but don't for long. Pumps last for upwards of 8-24 hours and sometimes longer.

    Downside..coldsores can be a problem due to the sustained NO upregulation.

    It could just be shaken up and chugged back. Add caramel color to hide the herb floating around in the bottle. Make it look like pop maybe? Whenever I can afford ClearShot I pick it up. Best energy drink so far!
