Anabolic Pump I love you....

I tried AP way back when it came out. I thought it was so/so. After reading the AP manual, looking at some info on the board, and remembering to take with LOTS of water, I ordered myself 4 bottles on sale.
I just took my first dose several hours ago. I'm Reactive-I so I waited 30 min before eating my breakfast of Oats, Berries, Whey, Banana, and Milk/OJ. 15 min - 30 minutes after dosing I actually felt I had MORE ENERGY, but then started to feel a bit hypo so I took my shake. I'm feeling quite good still 4+ hours later, no GI issues to report. I do use digestive enzymes and GutHealth as staples though.
I think this version with the extra 250mgs of actives (750mgs VS 500mgs) is working much better for me than the original. I had to take 2 of the original to get any symptoms of going hypo. I'm excited to keep going through all 4 bottles if I keep getting good results. I'm going to watch the mirror and clean up my diet more to make sure I get the most out of it. I'm initially much more impressed with this version.
I'm intrigued as to why I felt more energy, especially mental energy after dosing. I usually have a permanent brain fog that lasts until lunch time most days. I'l post an update later on wether these effects continue as well as any recomp effects.

Again, going Hypo was just a reference point for me to judge the effectivess of AP.
Reference the AP manual for dosing sugguestions and expectations. Per the manual I waited for the 30-45 minute window after dosing to take my shake instead of the normal 15 minutes because of my body's reaction to, or processing of carbohydrates. Once I started to feel a little hypo right at 30 min I started downing my shake.

Sounds like to much work. Plus I don't want to mess with my insulin anyway. I think I'm going to pass. Thanks guys...

Keep in mind that all goals require the necessary work to achieve them. Despite our culture of instant gratification, all things worth possessing are products of passion and dedication; the work involved with Anabolic Pump is merely a small part of the larger passion for fitness as a whole. Spending a small portion of your day intuitively dosing a product vs., completely altering the manner in which your body uses energy seems like a simple comparison to make.

The notion or suggestion that Anabolic Pump may provoke diabetes is far-fetched. It works independently of insulin levels. As you are aware, diabetes, especially Type I, is an autoimmune disease. Autoimmune disorders are generally triggered by malfunction of deep cellular processes, programming the body to basically attack itself! In the case of Insulin Dependent Diabetes Milletus, Juvenile Onset Diabetic Milletus, or Type I diabetes, the body erroneously regards the beta cells of the islets of Langerhans (the insulin producing tissue) situated in the pancreas as foreign entities and attacks them. The result is an inability of the body to metabolize carbohydrates due to insulin deficiency. Type II diabetes, on the other hand, results from a deep malfunction in metabolic processes at the cellular level, leading to a loss in insulin sensitivity.Originally Posted by xfiles;
While all this is well-known, it is important for an understanding of the role of Anabolic Pump in glucose metabolism and insulin synthesis. Anabolic Pump leads to improved cellular insulin sensitivity! How? It has been established that insulin receptors are resilient. This means that during times of low serum/blood insulin levels, the insulin receptors adjust to up-regulate insulin sensitivity, leading to better blood sugar management with a low percentage of the insulin that would otherwise have been needed. This means that, by optimizing glucose uptake in skeletal muscle cells (but not in adipose tissue), completely independent of insulin, Anabolic Pump ensures lower insulin secretion is required than is usually the case, leading to enhanced cellular insulin sensitivity. So, without going into further details, Anabolic Pump is extremely unlikely to create any dysfunction in insulin metabolism.

Exactly. It has been established that swings in blood sugar levels (say from hypoglycemia to hyperglycemia) within a short period of time can be fatal. In particular, hyperinsulemia ensures that even tissues that do not require insulin end up getting it. This can lead to kidney damage, ocular vessel damage, cardiovascular malfunction, compromising of nitric-oxide function (leading to vasoconstriction and platelet damage), and so on. It is easy to see how insulin insensitivity can be lethal.Originally Posted by USPLabs;

That is very strong language, Sir! Name-calling of this type is not condoned here. Concentrate on facts, or relax. Such comments are completely out of place. As it turns out, your target happens to own USPLabs, and is not any board rep. Even if he were, you should not address anyone as you did. Not to mention dropping threats to kill someone! Outrageous!Originally Posted by xfiles;

20 years, no come on, really...hope not and if so, wisdom passed you by, and you followed the road of generalities. You should take a class in clarification.
1. You had no idea the supplement worked independent of insulin. Insulin is not involved in the equation.
2. You responded with the loony diabetic comment.
I will have to say my younger consumer base is far more intelligent supplement wise.
You may be a great mechanic (Or snipper), but your supplement knowledge is infant.

I would venture to say that if xfiles caused no more AP for anyone, there may even be a few threats on his own life. LoL
Disclaimer: I am not in any way, shape, or form threatening the well being of our dear friend xfiles....yet.

lol....anyway..... how does anabolic pump line up against vanadyl sulfate? i know VS mimics insulin and AP has no relation to insulin but im just looking for more clarification/specifics as to how the compare and contrast

In addition, the post was just hilarious. It all of the sudden escalated to hunting down and killing a rep for defending his product.

before using anabolic pump i played around with carb cycling and had great results...now i get anywhere from 400 to 450 carbs a day and still staying lean and vascular...i LOVE this product..it's a product that i was VERY skeptical about....but until you try it will you not understand what this will do for you.
