Let's get STOKED contest to log STOKED!!!
Must be willing to do a honest detailed log of Stoked.
Ok to stack but would prefer it is with a product you have used before so you can distinguish between them.
In 50 words or less tell us why you would be a good choice to log STOKED
Contest will end on Sunday April 6th
1. Would you like to increase testosterone and decrease estrogen naturally with NO steroids and NO prohormones?
2. Are you between cycles and/or looking for something natural to bridge until your next cycle?
3. Would you like something to increase and strength naturally?
4. How about something which requires NO post cycle therapy and NO support supplements before during or after?
5. Would you like to increase libido and sexual function?

This compound is like sliced bread to the supplement industry. There are many different health benefits to come from resveratrol, but we picked it up for one in particular. Resveratrol is capable of modulating estrogenic receptors as well as controlling aromatase, giving it that One Two Punch for estrogen control. Research has shown its estrogenic modulation capabilities to increase sperm production by stimulating the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis. 
Horny Goat Weed
Horny Goat Weed (HWG) is a great source of the testosterone mimetic, Icariin. Research on Icariin has shown it to increase circulating testosterone levels as well as improve reproductive organs, making it a great therapeutic for hypoandrogenic states (like right after a steroids cycle). 
On top of the testosterone mimetic capabilities of icariin, it also has some very interesting metabolites. In vivo research has shown icariin to metabolize into icaritin and desmethylicaritin.  What's great about these guys is the fact that (like resveratrol) are very strong estrogenic receptor antagonists. 
Quercetin & Piperine
Well we've got our pretty sick post cycle therapy stack going here, but there poses one small problem, and that's absorption and bioavailability. Icariin and Resveratrol do not have the greatest bioavailablity in all the land so we gave them a little help with Quercetin and Piperine. Quercetin is used because it is the most potent natural inbitor of estrone sulfanase which degrades compounds like resveratrol.  This makes not only aids in absorption, but enhances antiestrogenic activity. Piperine is another addition because it enhances the ability of your intestines to absorb nutrients and phytochemicals.  Additionally, piperine may also inhibit the glucuronidase enzyme, another enzyme which degrades resveratrol.

This would be my first log and I am willing to make it extremely detailed. Workout is switching to three days lifting with a large increase in cardio for my first triathlon this summer. Looking too gain strength and keep muscle mass while running, mountain biking and swimming like crazy.

ive been looking for something to get me some size and strength. this might be the one.(dont know havent experienced the stokeness) this would be my first detailed log, but willing to do whatever you ask, within reason of course. post before and after pics and my progress in size and strength gains.
03-29-2008, 07:31 PM
Why should I be chosen to do a log? I lift 5 times a week, plus cardio so I will have twice as many entrances in my log then the next guy. I train with freakish weight, and volume so I need something to assist me in recovery time, and strength. I am a national level Powerlifting so lets see if its up to my standards, and out lives the hype. Mark

been training for over 4yrs, have gotten real serious since mid last year. kept a log over at ironaddicts called "IK v. Weights" and am currently logging my workouts here called "strength/cut". i train 4days/wk on a WSB template and all i am concerned about is strength. my current maxes are: bench: 335, squat: 415, dead: 435. i have been diagnoised hypogonadic since 04' and currently am off test cyp shots and have been for over 5wks. would love to see how this product would help my condition. only other supps i take fish oil, protein, and DCP. would be able to log at least 5days/wk.

I am going to be 100% honest i am not positive of the answer i have a opinion on what i know of the ingredents but have not got a chance to run Stoked myself yet but i have posed the question to get a answer from you do not want to give any false information it would not be fair to the members here on AM but will get you a answer A.S.A.P from somebody that does
03-29-2008, 11:55 PM
Are there studies on the product. I am curious as I would't mind running a log if I know what I am supposed to get from it.
03-30-2008, 01:23 AM
I can't believe more people are not all over this, If I was waiting to start my X-factor Appnut log I would be baking you guys cookies and sending you my application in hopes of logging. If you want a log that starts June 1 Im in, but otherwise good luck everyone else.

trans-Resveratrol relaxes the corpus cavernosum ex vivo and enhances testosterone levels and sperm quality in vivo.Shin S, Jeon JH, Park D, Jang MJ, Choi JH, Choi BH, Joo SS, Nahm SS, Kim JC, Kim YB.
College of Veterinary Medicine, Chungbuk National University, Heungdeok-gu, Cheongju, Chungbuk 361-763, Korea.
We examined the effects of trans-resveratrol on male reproductive functions; ex-vivo penile erection and in-vivo sperm counts and quality. For the ex-vivo study, the relaxation effects of resveratrol on isolated New Zealand white rabbit corpus cavernosum, precontracted by phenylephrine (5x10(-5) M) were measured. The in-vivo study measured reproductive organ weights, blood testosterone levels, testicular histopathology, sperm counts, as well as the epididymal sperm motility and deformity of male ICR mice given an oral dose of resveratrol (50 mg/ kg) for 28 days. Resveratrol elicited a concentration-dependent relaxing effect on corpus cavernosum, leading to a median effective concentration (EC50) of 0.29 mg/mL. Repeated treatment with resveratrol (50 mg/kg) did not cause an increase in body weight, reproductive organ weight or testicular microscopic findings; however, resveratrol did elicit an increase in blood testosterone concentration, testicular sperm counts and epididymal sperm motility by 51.6%, 15.8% and 23.3%, respectively, without influence on sperm deformity. In conclusion, we propose that resveratrol has a positive effect on male reproductive function by triggering a penile erection, as well as enhancing blood testosterone levels, testicular sperm counts, and epididymal sperm motility.

I'm running PCS(same as stoked) right now. It smells yummy. When you guys run it you will want to chew the caps instead of swallowing them. Smells like Grape Juice!

if chosen when would the tester need to start?
what if we are already in a cycle? i think that it would still be very benefiecial anyway...
03-30-2008, 12:14 PM

picked up a bottle of Stoked! for the hell of it during my last order from NP ... think I'll be trying it out after my recomp is finished in late May ... first or second week of June is when I could start ... if this is a good starting time, I'd like to be considered for a log ...
good luck to all the lucky chosen ones

i have been researching on this board for a couple of months getting alot of info on pro hormone type products to try a cycle for the first time( i have been lifting for 16yrs ) but i am willing to give this product a go by itself especially as our customs are abit hit and miss getting PH type products in. I dont know if i am suitable as i live in australia but i do know there are a lot of aussies on this site.

An interesting contest! Here is my entry:
"Containing generous dose-dependent amounts of synergistic compounds shown to support favourable gene expression comparable to the beneficial anti-aging effects of optimal calorie restriction, I consider Stoked a cornerstone of any serious programme for combating the adverse effects of oxidative stress, irrespective of type and cause. So, get Stoked!"

I need "STOKED" because I'm currently reducing calories for my summer cut and it's starting to take it's toll in the bedroom and overall libido. My age, (34) probably isn't helping matters either, but my wife and I both would love to get things STOKED up in the bedroom.
03-31-2008, 01:34 PM
Man this thread is booming, good luck to all the applicants I'm finishing up on my last day of STOKED! and the results have been very nice...increase strength, libido, vivid dream recall, better pumps when taken close to pre-workout.

I see this test done on animal not human and that is not a test on your product. That worries me because the claims looks amazing but at the same time there many products on here that makes claims and people have said things that did not agree with the claims.
