I’ve been applying 4 pumps of Sustain Alpha every morning, since January 1st. I do two pumps on upper inner thighs, one pump to back of knees and one pump to forearms.

hmm forearms are a good choice for me. Do you do it inner forearms below wrist area? do you guys mean inner thigh like hamstrings? lol

Shear/shave your crotch (initially, not immediately prior to application) and rub it at beltline down, basically everywhere you would have to shave your crotch. Pube area, ballsack, your Johnson, inner thighs. You can go up onto the low abs as well. Seriously.

If you look at the application suggestion right on the tube, it will indicate this region.

good call. I remember shaving my balls and then (like a genius) applying Sustain just minutes after... wow, that was a rough half hour 😂

It should have been smooth if you just shaved them :ROFLMAO:

But that would wake you up for sure I bet!

i think you should at least try applying to balls and see how you react...

2 pumps to inner thighs and 3 pumps to balls.
Three pumps to the nuts!? Ever experience back pain from carrying around grapefruits between your legs?

The Pringles logo for your avatar is starting to make more sense now... good for you, man. Good for you.

I asked this in another thread but still curious for more feedback.:

The ingredients in Sustain Alpha are non-hormonal and act centrally and/or in the brain. There is no local conversion that occur in the testicular region because there is nothing to convert, compared to eg DHEA which according to some can interact with local enzymes, which would make sense with something like dermacrine.

What is in play if additional effects are noticed by applying to the balls? What is the mechanism?

absorption rate applying to balls is going to be higher. not only that but even though sustain alpha is systematic you are going to get some localized reaction....just like when i apply virtus directly to chest and nips.

It’s a thin skin area - better absorption.

There’s a reason bodybuilders joke about when they are lean and have thinned out skin from low collagen diets & refer to it as “dickskin”

You don’t have to use that site of course. You can try more traditional transdermal sites like clavicles, traps, chest, inside of arms, tops of feet, abs if lean.

even though dermacrine and sustain alpha are both systematic there is a reason there are distinctively different areas of application shown on bottles.

Interesting, and it makes sense from an absorption point of view.
It’s more in terms of what specific action/reactions the ingredients have locally once absorbed, if this is part of it too.

if before i go on a airplane i needed to know the exact mechanics of how it works i would probably never fly...i just know that airplanes do fly and leave it at that :)

sustain alpha has been around over a decade with same original formula...not many other supps can say that.

Not questioning the formula; I use it and like it. Just curious about the application discussed here out of interest.

Been doing forearms and upper chest , with the leftover on hand to the .

...how long after can you take a shower? Guess I’m asking how much time does it need for the stuff to be completely absorbed

As a rule I wait at least 5 hours after application of any td to shower or swim. But I have no idea specifically on Sustain Alpha, that’s just a catch-all practice. I usually apply right after I dry off from a shower honestly so skin is clean & free from excess oils.

i would agree with 5 hours for all td's in general.

also a hot or even warm shower opens pores and trandermals will absorb better, so yes, best to apply after a shower.
