Ecdysterone help

HI All.
I got Ecdy 90% powder product from a well known Dutch supplier, but I am wondering what it actually is. It is supposed to be taken with water "like a shot", but on contact with water the thing turns into very sticky tar like substance, which is not water soluble. See photo: Sticks to anything and does not wash out even with detergent. Is this how it is supposed to be or did I get wrong product.

EDIT: Experimented a bit more with it. It did not dissolve in oil, but it dissolved in a bit of vodka. Maybe that is what they meant to take it "like a shot", LOL.

I would just hold about an ounce of a drink you enjoy in your mouth, but nothing carbonated and throw the powder towards the back of your mouth. Swallow quickly and then jug more of your drink to chase it down. If done correctly you will not even taste the powder at all.

The taste is bitter but tolerable. Actually it is kind of easy to swallow if you roll the tar into a ball. But I wonder if this thing sticks to my teeth and mouth walls, and it is actually difficult to remove, what will happen in the GI tract? How would it dissolve.

Ecdysterone(s) are water soluble compounds, given their multiple OH groups. I don't know what it is that you received, but it's not Ecdysterone. It should dissolve in water readily, and has a very distinct "burnt resin" type smell and bitter taste to it. Examples of hygroscopic herbs that do turn "tar like" in water are Tribulus and Ephedra/Ma Huang. If I were to guess, you probably got some low quality Trib.

I've used the compound for over 30 years now, and recommend you find a good Rhaponticum Carthamoides Extract (full spectrum) if you can find it. Hope that helps...

Do you have a preferred company for Rhaponticum Carthamoides Extract?

I figured this was the case as to why a lot of people never really see results with ecdysterone along with source issues. I can only guess because I haven't seen any testing that the only good ecdysterone products are Kre-Anabolyn, Mass Pro Synthagen, VemoHerb Ecdysterone , and possibly the Boldanic brand of ecdysterone. Now personally I can attest to the efficacy of Mass Pro Synthagen. That product will get you results!!!!!

I read that Iron Forged Ecdystsrone is pretty good.

The HED is not that high to begin with, can be easily reached with few of the underdosed supplements on that list [HED = 0.8mg/kg/day]

I mega-dosed 8 bottles. I don't remember much from it.
I guess it's a hit or miss then. Some people raved about it; some people had a similar experience to yours. Apparently Iron Forged Ecdy had cyclodextrin for better absorption.
