Hello,

I took Cistanche Tubulosa (Minimum 50% Echinacoside + 15% Acetoside (Verbascoside) from Nootropics Depot. Basically took a 1/4 teaspoon serving size every morning with my coffee. It didn't affect my coffee taste at all and dissolves easily.

To be honest, I didn't notice much. I got it because one person mentioned that their voice became deeper after using Cistanche so I thought why not try and see if I can become a baritone. Unfortunately, I didn't experience any deep voice....but I felt my singing improved. Other than that, I didn't feel anything special....no strength increase, no sexual vigor, no alpha male feeling etc. Perhaps I needed to take a larger dose. I don't have a milligram scale to measure the powder but each serving was supposedly 200 mg.

Maybe someone else could have better luck with Cistanche. I'm sure it has a lot of benefits.

Thanks for reading my review.

it's included in OLs k1ngs pct....haven't saw many reviews on it---maybe it has something to do with extract[extraction process]?

looks like an interesting ingredient---bummer you didn't see much!!!

Well, maybe it's a quality issue? I talked to someone who ordered two tubs of phenibut from ND. He only got one phenibut and said he felt nothing. Not sure how true it is , but something to take note of. They are highly recommended.

Thanks for the review, though!

ND is not one of these BS companies you aren’t sure on the quality of the ingredient you are getting. They are unlike most supplement companies and they actually do their due diligence when it comes to quality control. IMO they are the gold standard when it comes to quality and trust in the supplement world.

I think I should have tried a higher dose. I'm 235 lbs, so maybe I would have needed a heftier dose of cistanche to see effects.
I'm sure this is legit Cistanche. It's an ND product and ND is one of the finest depots in the supplement world.

for whatever its worth. After i have started cistanche from ND - i had an increase in libido. I def felt its effects towards bloodflow and vigor/aggression etc. I had much better workouts with preworkout dosing it vs before bed. Stacking it with ND tongkat ali was a great preworkout cocktail for me.

Did you take the recommended serving size? (200mg)

yes to possibly 300mg at times... I think we have told you at past that you def need a scale for cistanche.. I didnt feel much when i was dosing about 100mg. soon as i went past 200mg it was different where effects started
I guess next time I'll try pills for easier measurement. Actually I'll buy a powder measuring scale too.

OLs k1ngs pct has it dosed at 750 but in all fairness its only a 10% stem extract?

sure it may be calculated to provide overall same amount of raw cistanche ~2-5gm from the extract ratios. according to OL write-up more amount from lower % on cistanche is better but i had great results from ND's 50% ech. BTW ND's tongkat rocks. I highly suggest to anyone to do the stack i ran it was pretty effective. My patchy spots on beard filling in was obvious sign.

Did you notice body hair getting heavier? Sure sign of elevated T and/or DHT.

I trim my body so i cannot comment on that much. My beard has been filling in on patchy areas. I cannot contribute to which supp is causing this. likely combo from everything i was taking.

restarted cistanche again - better sleep and fuller testicles right away 2 days in.
Good to see this being discussed again. Based on your earlier reports, I plan to run this at some point in the future. Right now I have Optimize-T on deck for testing. Will wait until after a couple months run of that so as not to contaminate testing results. Would love to hear what other guys are getting out of this.
