    So 24mg of resveratrol and 24g of leucine. Hmb is too expensive. Resveratrol is doable but realistically the leucine might need to go down to 10-12g's per day from all sources. I think I'm gonna try it

    Just one question isn't oral ingestion bioavailability of resveratol poor in human ?
    so how does one get the adequate amount? topical i guess but...

    YES it is true resveratrol increases metabolism and burns fat IN RODENTS! Ive recently talked to an endocrinologist who conducted a randomized, placebo controlled clinical trial on obese men using high-dose (1500mg daily) resveratrol which found NO positive effects on metabolism or fatburning. So before you rush out to buy reveratrol and leucine you might want to do some critial reading of your own:

    High-Dose Resveratrol Supplementation in Obese Men
    An Investigator-Initiated, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled
    Clinical Trial of Substrate Metabolism, Insulin Sensitivity,
    and Body Composition, 2012, Diabetes, Clinical trial reg. no. NCT01150955

    Precisely Sciencefreak... many of resveratrol benefits observed in rodents do not translate to humans..at least not as well as it does in rodents.. and scientics are puzzled as to why. They speculate it is the poor bioavailability... of resveratrol. Patrick Arnol has mentioned an interested human study in which 150mg of resveratrol for 30 days was found to lower, blood gluscose, tryglicerydes, and insuline. It also increased AMPK expression and increased SIRT1- Gene expression as well.

    Id post the link but I need 150 posts and Im not anywhere near it. lol but if you search ''Patrick Arnold resveratrol'' you should find a link to his blog under the names ''Resveratrol Human Study''

    I think they're talking about the combination... not just one or the other for fat loss.

    Yes, that's also true - but its still in rodents. I think it might be the poor bioavailability that causes it to be ineffective in humans because leucine does do good things. If youre interested in the compounds check out SRT1720 - its an experimental compound activating the SIRT pathway like resveratrol only much more potent.
