Arjuna is really the gold standard for heart health, 1500mg water extract (500mg 3x daily) has by far the most impressive heart health profile I've seen in any natural product. It has a few studies showing recovery from heart attacks greater than propranolol, improves lipids with slightly less efficiency than statins, one of the only things I've seen solid data reversing cardiomegaly, solid heart rate regulation, lowers a1c, just as effective as verapamil for treating angina, and doesnt promote weight gain like beta blockers or alpha modulators. Seriously I barely found the studies on this stuff, but it is the closest to a holy grail supplement I've seen. This is an incredibly solid profile


Only thing to note is its actions are completely prevented by propranolol, so good indicator not to use if on any beta blockers.

Arjuna can actually lower some guys blood pressure too much it’s so potent - awesome ingredient to keep bp in check, with a little experimentation on personal dosage to help hit the number range you’re after.

New Morphobolic from Morphogen
View attachment 200046
From the site:

AJUGA TURKESTANICA
Ajuga Turkestanica Extract contains phytoecdysteroids, bio-active compounds that resemble androgens in structure.
Research shows strong anabolic activity via several metabolic pathways.
Increases skeletal muscle hypertrophy, recovery and repair from exercise.
Efficacious dosing is most commonly seen with 400mg active phytoecdysteroids per day.
MORPHOBOLIC contains an industry leading 2,000mg Ajuga Turkestanica (800mg active phytoecdysteroids) per serving.

URSOLIC ACID
Ursolic Acid (Rosemary extract) is a promising body recomposition agent; able to increase muscle mass and decrease fat mass.
Increases IGF-1 and power output.
Increases the adipokine irisin which converts white adipose cells into more metabolically active brown adipose cells, resulting in great fatty acid oxidation. Irisin also stops the development of fatty tissue.
MORPHOBOLIC contains a research supported 450mg Ursolic Acid (active) per serving.


LAXOSTERONE
5a-Hydroxy-Laxogenin is a plant sterol from Smilax Sieboldiiis (a member of the brassinosteroid family).
Shown to possess anabolic activity without the side effects of liver toxicity or hormone suppression.
Regulates protein turnover and promotes a positive nitrogen balance.
Microencapsulated for increased bioavailability.
MORPHOBOLIC contains 100mg of the patented and trademarked Laxosterone per serving.

Ah now this bugs me out because we all know what happens...add a TON of fat.. lots of fiber/sugar alcohols and call it "keto"
Usually 15g+ net carbs still

But we will see. I am just going off the keto snack bars I have seen at the health food store.

Which most use fiber that's NOT really fiber and considered a carb. They use isomalto-oligosaccharides:

!!

They also use Maltitol which is also horrible and the worst and cheapest sugar alcohol. Was popular in the early 90s. Maltitol is still considered a carbohydrate and contains 2.1 calories per gram. Maltitol has 6g net carbs per 10 grams

ONE bars does this as do MANY others. One bars are not 10 net carbs, they are more like 20 to 23 net.

Avoid any bar (if you care about accuracy of carb and caloric intake of what you eat) that uses these 2 ingredients.

Agreed iso fiber is a farce and maltitol is the worst of the sugar alcohols. They are both are just a way to manipulate marketing on the cheap .

Hyde is right about Arjuna lowering bp too much. I can tolerate hawthorn berry, Nattokinase, niacin and most other bp support supplements but Arjuna practically lands me in the hospital each time. May need to stay away from K1ngs Shield unfortunately.

Take your blood glucose after a quest bar
Then tell me if the net carbs are accurate
You would be surprised
in your experience these are pretty good for not raising blood sugar? Or way worse than expected based on label and carb content?

Not keto but it’s been my favorite bar for 6 years, super curious

@The Solution

1. Those brownies look downright amazing.

2. Do you have any intention on trying the new BIG-O protein bar in the near future? Would love to get your feedback on it, if so.

Solid formula, but I'd rather see 20-hydroxyecdysone utilizing Hydroxypropyl-Beta-Cyclodextrin complex or, liposomal, or phytosomal technology to increase absorption.

I know ECDYs gets a bad reputation, because of terrible sourcing and shitty dosage most products have used.

However, I enjoy ECDYs A LOT. Although, I find I need high dose 20-hydroxyecdysone with some sort of absorption technology, but it has to also be used along with a broad/full spectrum extract of ECDYs. Something like Ajuga Turkestanica–my personal favorite, but hard to get a legit souce in my experience–that contains a wide variety of ECDYs. I really dont notice much if anything without utilizing both at the same time. However, this could just be my personal response as some definitely are more sensitive to the positive effects of ECDYs, that is not well understood why.

Plus I NEVER noticed anything from laxogenin at even INCREDIBLY large doses.

I never have been able to find the study indicating the 200% increase in protein synthesis, or its claimed increase nitrogen retention, other than in plant cells in vitro. And no one wants to provide such source, for me or anyone else, with products making that claim.

So even though ECDYs get a bad reputation at least it has shown to at least potentially be anabolic, and why I would have preferred 20-hydroxyecdysone with something to increase absorption than laxogenin.

I’m hoping to see a couple logs. Need the Morphogen team to give @Resolve10 and @TheSolution a few bottles to log

Did they release any information on the bar? Things that help them differentiate?

12 bars for $48? :D
Not yet. PB and Honey is a flavor. I am guessing 12 bars for $28. No clue. I may pickup a box on launch. Will see how it compares to Outright.

I wonder if it’s practical to add things like Velositol and Bacillus coagulans GBI-30 6086 to protein bars. Would be a way to differentiate
