I have read reviews on this forum and other for a few years. Had positive results with selected products recommended here, and have followed all the warding to stay away from bad products, combinations of products or to properly take supplements.
Pro-Hormones were a supplement I had not taken due to side effects described here, and from friends at the gym (first hand or 3rd party). Then when I read the sales pitch at IronMag LABs about the HALO Extreme Complete Stack and it Non-Aromatizing quality that makes it unique and thus prevents all nasty side effects like Gyno, sexual disfunction, hair loss, and High Blood Pressure I thought it's
a big claim ... but Dimmaggio poses as a lefitimate bussinesman and enthusiast. I bought the stack, and on the 2nd day I was already having Hot Flashes, Ringing in the ears, by the 3.5 day I had severe high blood pressure and was almost rushed to the Emergency Room.
How can this be when the product CLAIMS to be Uniquely Formulated to prevent this condition? I've never had such problem, have a very low salt diet and I'm very healthy and eat healthy otherwise.
I contacted Dimmaggio and asked for an explanation and what a surprise .... NO ANSWER! Contacted IronMag LABs support which claims Expedited Support within 24hrs, 4 days later NO REPLY.
Also, I spoke to a friend who owns a small gym, and supplement store. He told asked me if I had any positive effects during the time I took it.
From all the effects he expected, lethargy from the 1-Andro, the only other effects from HALO where Extreme High Blood Pressure and Hot Flashes. Sounds like something an old grandma would have during menopause .... My opinion Stay away from this, and go to a reputable Lab
As I never got a response from Dimmaggio, I went to the IronMag Labs forums where I found pages of cases of guys with side effects from HALO, most described the Hot Flashes, Ringing in the ears, some with more extreme cases like me described chest pressure, discomfort in arms, numbness in fingers. One guy described how he left the gym one day starting his HALO cycle and had acute nausea, hot flashes, ringing, to the point he had to drop on the front lawn where he passed out right before he thought he was going to through up.
I really hate when vendors are deceptive and try to take advantage of us. Specially in a tight niche community like bodybuilding. This guy Dimmaggio relies on selling this low quality stuff without caring about the consequenses expecting that weather it works or not, or people are adversely affected he gets paid. As if you open the bottle and go to the hospital after 3 days of taking his "stuff" he got paid and could care less, certainly not enough to bother responding to an email.
My good friend from University is a corporate lawyer and bb also, he has looked into this operation and found that he hides and hides and hides behind emails and P.O. Boxes etc to prevent people from reaching the company. The website has NO phone number, The address available is only a P.O. Box, the domain is shielded and hosted outside .... the people who operate this way are people hiding something.
My friend from the gym recommended another stack with proven results and no side effects .... I'll give it a go and write a review when done.
From reviews here I see HALO produces minimal results, and because people who took it were also taking multiple other supplements, I believe they are not directly attributable to HALO but a consequence of taking with others and the hard work at the gym!
