I was fortunate enough to be selected by Rob to run a log of the Alpha Stano powder. The powder is a combination of 30% epiandrosterone complexed with 70% cyclodextrins. For those of you unfamiliar with cyclodextrin, cyclodextrin increases and enhances solubility and absorption of the material it is complexed with and (provided the material has an appropriate molecular weight) makes the material ideal for sublingual administration. In the golden age of prohormones, many years ago, several products used cyclodextrin and, in fact, cyclodextrin could be separately purchased to be mixed with bulk prohormone materials when they were readily available.

I am about 176 lbs, down about 21 lbs after a few months of Keto dieting. Also, at my age - I am a contemporary I of theBigT - I am also older than probably 80% of the people on this forum. Because of high-stress work demands, my recent "workouts" have been limited to some very limited home lifting, stationary biking (a mixture of longer duration, steady state riding, and HIIT) and some running. Not ideal by any means, but it is keeping body fat low(er) and at my age I value spending time with my wife (she actually likes me) - so I simply haven't been able (read that as "willing") to prioritize going to the gym - because of the long work hours). Yes, I know, everyone has excuses.

Today was my first day. I took approximately 600Mg sublingually, mixed with 7Mg of Cialis powder and approximately 1.5 Mg of yohimbine (something that I seem to be very sensitive to -- and I frequently substitute AlphaBurn (alpha yohimbine) which, unlike regular yohimbine, does not increase heart-rate or anxiety - to minimize/avoid the stimmed out feeling I get from using a larger amount of regular yohimbine).

Within 15 or 20 minutes I felt an alpha-energized, good feeling (you know, as when you are confident enough that you could grab a bat, step into the box against their starting pitcher confident that you would hit the fastball about 450 feet -- not the hey look at me- I am an overt tough guy- ass clown type of "alpha").

About 45 minutes (after the first dose) later I took an additional 250Mg of Alpha Stano sublingually.

Today's cardio was of a different type.

I can say that I felt great, confident, strong and had significant vascularity (I know, I know).

So, one day of dosing down, and one after workout - Alpha Stano leaves me impressed.

Anecdotally, the sublingual Alpha Stano seems to "hit" more quickly (than encapsulated or transdermal products) and seems to hit with greater effect - but, to be fair, I did not use the product solo. Was any part of that placebo? Although I can't say for sure, I really don't think so - and I have taken so many products over the years - you can "tell" when one works. Sublingual administration seems to very quickly get this into your bloodstream. I can't say with certainty that the cyclodextrin carried the "C" and yohimbine with it, but it seems that it did (file that under bro-science) and see no reason that it wouldn't have.

Edited - to correct an error.

I've known Beau (we don't go out for beers but we've been on the same forums) for years and he is nothing if not honest. I'm in.

off to a great start @Beau....congrats on the weight loss. I get the feeling you are going to really enjoy this.

btw-thanks for defining the cyclodextrin, many are probably unfamiliar with it.

Yesterday was a light workout day, I am almost not willing to even call it a workout day, but I did some light cardio. About 30 minutes prior to cardio, I took 600Mg sublingually.

As a side note, while the taste it not something you would seek out, neither is it something to complain about. It seems to have less of a "chemical" taste than what I recall from past use of cyclodextrin-based products. In reality, many of the supplements and herb extracts I purchase in bulk powder and several taste horribly; this one doesn't.

As with day one, a nice alpha feeling followed shortly thereafter (but I was also off work, so that gave me a head start in the right direction). Today, I ran the product without adding the C or yohimbine. The only other (non-vitamin) supplement I took was to apply two pumps of Sustain Alpha. The only other change that I have made recently is to reschedule taking 50Mg oral DHEA and 50Mg oral Pregnenolone in the AM, rather than pre-bed as I have been taking them.

Hardly scientific, but there seems to be a definite (and favorable) impact on libido and morning "readiness". This morning, I had to sort of laugh - as I hadn't remembered ordering a diving board. A welcome reaction (and fingers crossed for the continued effect).

Not much of an update ... but I can report that I continue to be impressed.

Sorry for the delay in updating. Work is ... well ... work.

I am continuing to dose at approximately 600Mg, twice a day (morning and evenings), and continue to feel a very full muscle feeling and vascularity.

Yesterday, I used it sublingually in the afternoon/early evening along with 3Mg of alpha yohimbine. As you would expect, the reaction with the alpha yohimbine was less noticeable than it was with regular yohimbine - but that is part of the reason I use AlphaBurn (it avoids the jitters).

My workouts have been limited because of work hours (and some headaches, sleep has also been lousy lately). But none of that is in any way associated with the Alpha Stano powder. In fact, when I need the workouts the most (for stress reduction) I seem to get to them even less than usual.

More to follow ....

I continue to get a very muscle full and pumped feeling after each dose, followed by a positive, not angry, alpha feeling. As to the groinal effect, that does not seem to occur every time - although that would certainly be welcomed. Today I will increase the per dose amount to 1,000Mg. More to follow.

1gm twice daily is what works best for me.

Keep us updated on how well the change in dosing works on you.

I dosed 1,000Mg last night and felt pretty good, and full. I had been out to the dementia care unit earlier in the day visiting my Mom and found out that one of the well-liked (by me) residents had passed away, so I didn't wind up working out. There has been a string of losses recently. I suppose that is something to be accepted, but it is always sad news and a point for reflection (meaning, I always stop and wonder how they touched the lives of others, and if I am doing enough to touch and influence the lives of others). Thinking can get you into trouble ....

I will dose this evening again at 1,000Mg. The good news is that I don't detect any downside to the higher dosage - meaning no spiked BP type of feeling.

Good news! So you plan on keeping it at 1000mg dosage for the rest of the run pending on how your evening dosage went?

Yes, my plan is to continue to use a dosage of 1,000Mg, 2X per day.
I like this plan, sounds like a winner.

Guys - thank you for you kind words. There is something for me to learn with every adversity. I learn nothing meaningful during great times. Mind you, I don't wish for these things - but I can either learn whatever it is that I am supposed to learn, be a victor and benefit, or be a victim. I will never be a victim. Personal responsibility won't allow that.

Without getting too personal, let me suggest a recently used combination (about which, I am still smiling):

1,000Mg Alpha Stano Powder sublingually
25Mg V sublingually
25Mg Proviron sublingually
2,000Mg Tyrosine
4,000Mg Citrulline Malate
50Mg Pine Bark Extract (Generic Hard Rhino Brand, not patented product)
20Mg Piperine

Different type of cardio.

Sorry for the sporadic updates. I am very much enjoying this powder, and I plan on purchasing more.

I had a great cardio session yesterday (traditional type, not the alternative) and I felt great and pumped.

I seem to have much greater vascularity, but I can't say with certain that it is the Alpha Stano - although I believe it is.

No downsides at all.

Well, unrelated to this thread, I went to my MD on Friday - work stress has my BP bumped up to the level where I have to go on 20Mg of Lisonopril until I can reduce it through other means. In addition, it feel like I sprained my neck, so I have had to take it really easy lately.

Damn it.
