    Differences: Activate Xtreme & Mass FX Maximum?


    I'm wondering if there are any significant differences between these two products. They look very similar to me but I may be missing something. Both prevent free test from binding to SHGB, both increase natural test production, both include ingredients to minimize estrogen-related sides. (correct?)

    Is one generally considered "better" than the other for any reason?

    Are there any significant differences one might consider when deciding which of the two products to use (as a stand-alone)?

    I'm curious because, although the descriptions are very similar, the ingredients are not (aside from the divinil). Just wondering which formula is generally preferred.

    Thanks in advance!

    Ive taken both the original Mass FX and Activate Extreme, Im about to take the new Mass FX very soon now, already have it sitting in front of me. I personally think the old MFX was better itself, the fact that its been improved and more imprtantly in the ways that its been improved, specifically with 11-Alpha makes em think it will be the best supplement of the type to date by far. Ill have a definate answer for you shortly but On paper and reasoning would leasd me to belive its going to be loads better.

    I am confused on whether to run Jungle Warfare stand-alone or MassFX Max stand-alone.
    I guess I could always do them together...

    Go with Anabolic Xtreme man, no hidden dangers there. Just quality supplements.

    EDIT: The hidden dangers I speak of are in JW (DMT).

    i think they owned up after they were caught but its obviously not as wide spread as it should be since peeps like you are expecting to take it as a natty supp when its a very weak but very suppresive hormone.

    Both are great supplements.

    Act-X is a test booster/free test product first and foremost.

    MassFX Maximum is more of a pro-anabolic with some test ingredients added in.

    LOL, simmer down now. He was asking about your post here:

    I believe it is a hormone i dont really care but I think for someone especially a younger kid this is bad.
    And didn't know what you were talking about. I'm assuming Jungle Warfare, but you are by no means clear about it.

    What distinguishes a pro-anabolic from a test booster? Testosterone is a very anabolic hormone, so isn't a test booster a pro-anabolic?

    From reading descriptions I had the impression that Mass-FX Max's main function was to promote anabolism by raising test levels and making that test more available. Are you saying that it is pro-anabolic in some other way (unrelated to testosterone)?

    well the threads topic is on Act EX and MASS FX so sorry if I just thought you were talkin bout them at first. I still dont see how you think that could even be cotrived as a derogatory or haughty statement as it was a very simple question with no inflection or emphisis put on any part of it with italics or smilies that could be made out to be mean or insulting.

    Im sorry if someone else was mean to you but it wasnt me chief, so dont take it out on me or your in danger of lookin like the Ahole yourself.

    again have a nice time and if you ever need help Id be happy to be there for you and share my knowledge to the extent possible or point you in the right direction.

    You're right for the most part. Both increase test, and both have a means to mediate estrogen.

    The main differences is that MassFX Max contains 11-alpha (for nitrogen retention), Forslean (for its effects on cAMP) , and of course the 25R-diol. , while Activate Xtreme doesnt.

    They are both great products, you cant go wrong either way.

    Word up. The modifications from MassFX to MassFX Maximum Strength were designed to increase the "mass effect" part of it; afterall, we take these supplements with the intent to build muscle, not just elevate testosterone. Y'know what I'm sayin'?

    I refer to it more as a pro-anabolic, because it contains 11-alpha (Turkesterone), which is non-test related. It is the main ingredient.

    act-x is a free test enhancer, MassFX is a free and total test nettle/tribulus product (well nettle and tribulus active) and I think an anti-estrogen in there.

    didnt see this, yeah basically and Ax has horny goat weed and rhodiola and mass-fx doesnt. The est. supres. should be higher on Mass FX, but people seem to respond to both.

    The new massFX has turkesterone as the main ingredient though chuck. Are you referring to the old version?

    Isn't 25R-Diol the main compound that Anabolic Xtreme touts in Mass FX (and MFX Max)?
    the way I see it the unique thing about MFX is that it has 11-alpha and 25R-Diol and and unique thing about ActX is that it has Icarrin.

    The other ingredients in both formulas overlap (Divanil) and I3c is serves the same function as white button mushroom extract.

    The other ingredients (Sea Buckthorn in MFX, Basella Alba in ActX) don't have much research behind them.

    Forslean (in MFX) is usually included in some cutting supps, but it probably won't have much of a cutting effect by itself.

    yeah I haven't looked at the new formula but I thought it was the same except with more nettle, it still has that tribulus active 25-spirol-diol whatever right?

    Take 1 serving 2-3 times per day. For best results, use for 4 to 8 weeks. Do not exceed 8 weeks of continuous use. Stack Hyperdrol, Superdrol-NG, Lean-FX, and/or 3-AD to create the most powerful stack legally available today.

    Taken from the box... do you really need to stack all those? sheesh...

    Every ingredient in MassFX Max will do exactly as advertised.

    And... there is no need to stack all those. Its just an option some might like to pursue. MassFX Max will yield plenty good enough gains standalone.

    You can stack it with Hyperdrol if you want, certainly.

    The new MassFX was designed to where it is a superb standalone, while the old one we recommended a stack with an AI, which isnt needed with the new one b/c of the WBM extract.

    A stack is certainly doable, and would be great for gains.

    i am wondering why ax didn't put a legitimate anti-e/test booster like 6 bromo in the new massfx.

    Thats what the White Button Mushroom extract is for. It isnt as strong as 6-bromo, but its certainly gets the job done.
