  I'm pretty skeptical when it comes to nutrient partitioners/insulin mimickers.. Actually, I'm VERY skeptical. There is little science backing up the monster claims that come with these products. Some guys that ran logs on this (via other forums) even had blood glucose levels measure after their meal while dosing and claimed that they were significantly lower.

Dosing
Quite simple. 1-2 caps, twice daily with your biggest meals. I usually take 2 if it's over 50g of carbohydrates. The product recommends dosing about 20 minutes before you eat but I've taken it right before I started eating with no differences noted.

Value: 9/10
I picked up 3 bottles of these on closeout about a year ago at TFsupplements for like 13 bucks a piece with the thought of not much to lose. Regular price is typically very reasonable, around 25-35 bucks depending on where you shop. Allstarhealth has it right now for 25+shipping.

Effectiveness: 7/10
Luckily, I liked the product. As far as getting food pumps from nutrient partitioning, fat loss, and insulin mimicking, I am not able to say. So many things can come into play here. But in terms of reducing carb bloat, this stuff somehow works, surprisingly well.
I am actually almost done with my last bottle, as I have gone on and off the product. I've tried taking it with numerous foods, such as brown rice, white rice, sweet potatoes, white potatoes, oatmeal, and even cheat meals (pizza, fast food, chinese, etc). I mostly run this during bulking season as that's when my carb meals are the biggest, usually around 50-80g a pop. SlinShot definitely appeared to have a positive effect on bloat/gastrointestinal distress.
Around the time I bought this, I also got into digestive enzymes and probiotics. SlinShot proved to work well without them but I also recommend adding them to compliment your biggest meals that include red meat and carbohydrates. Having this on top of digestive enzymes and probiotics for your post workout meal is a blessing.

Overall, I like SlinShot. Not something that will make or break your progress but at least It didn't make me crap my guts out like Glycobol. I'm sure I'll be using this on and off for a while. It's good to be able to pound a huge meal and get back to daily routines in a timely fashion.

Cons:
  • Reduces Carb Bloat
  • Good Value

    Excellent review man. I was just looking at getting this earlier today after reading mytherner's review on it. I was wondering what you thought of this as a cutting tool? I saw mytherener had good results with this on his cutting phase, and was maybe thinking of trying it out. Any thoughts?

    Solid review bro but I'm a bit confused on the dosing you used. I'm about to run slin shot and I was under the assumption you were to take 1-2 servings 15 minutes before your postworkout shake/meal with the option of doubling up on servings (says that on my bottle at least). Where'd u get that it's supposed to be 1-2 caps 2x a day with biggest meals?

    Thanks man.

    I like I said in my review, cannot say for weight loss. I have ran it on a cut and I am doing so again right now. I'm on a caloric deficit while cutting so I'm gonna lose weight either way. Don't think it was increased, at least significantly, while taking this.

    @ BrookBuff- haha it's been a while man. Really busy these days.

    @ JoeFLY- Just pulled one of my old bottles out (been keeping the pills in a separate pill box). I went by the non-training day recommendation since I don't do post workout shakes anymore. I actually forgot about the dosing with a shake to be honest. My bad. And It says 15 minutes prior. Guess my recommended dosing obscured the label dosing a little bit. ;). Either that or my bottles are so old, they changed the dosing protocol lol.

    Lol no worries bud, I was getting worried that I might have a bunk bottle if we had differing dosing recommendations hahaha

    Glad it worked for you, I'll obviously let you know how it works in unison with a shake postworkout via my log.

    DBZ thoughts aside, how does this compare to Anabolic Pump, I thought they were similar products? Great review.

    @ Kris- Thanks man.
    I feel terrible for kids growing up now, the cartoons are awful. Our generation had it good!

    @ Krob (I refuse to call you hulk), Thanks dude. And of course you would go with peptides lol.

    @AM- It was weird I agree but SS4 was sick.

    @Cryo- It's honestly been a long long time since I ran AP. I ran Glycobol after running AP and glycobol was so terrible I decided to just do away with these kinds of supplements. Until I found this for dirt cheap. From what I remember, I'd say it was pretty similar to AP in terms of reducing carb bloat. Both did a good job.

    @ Cray, thanks homie.

    Thanks for the review man.

    Just wanna take a doubt to see if is my mind or not: I usually take with high glicemic post-shake, and i felt that the energy and muscles were able to be "restored" faster, and i notice a little reduction in bodyfat. Same with ya?

    Slinshot: More than expected, but not how you think.

    There’s been a lot of talk recently about insulin potentiators like Glycobol and Slinshot. I didn’t have much faith that it would really work, but I decided to finally test the waters and see what happens. This is going to be a relatively short review because this product doesn’t warrant a 200 page dissertation, it’s just not worth it. I hope you all enjoy, here are my findings:
    About me:
    Goals- Bulking (1000+ calories over maintanence)
    Training: 5/3/1 BBB, 4x per week.
    Weight Change (pre vs. post-use): none, weight didn’t change.
    Other Supplements: Protein, Creatine, Multi, Fish Oil, nothing else.

    Dosing: 10/10
    I love how simple this is. It’s just a cap or two with your largest meals, or you can use it with your post workout shake. There’s no massive tubs to lug around or messy powder, just a very portable couple caps I can put in my pill case before I head off for work or class. I also used this both on workout days and off days to see how it affected me.

    Value: 9/10
    Actually really good. I won’t lie to you, I bought Slinshot because it seemed to have a similar profile to other I.P.s, but at half the cost. I picked this up on Amazon for about twenty bucks. If this works well, why wouldn’t one want to make it a permanent staple of their supplement stack?

    Effectiveness: 8/10
    Hmm… now here’s where it gets interesting. I payed close attention to my diet and dosing of this product and I can’t say I noticed any semblance of “food pumps” like others have mentioned, and my recovery was maybe slightly better, but who knows? The results I got could have been affected by slightly better sleep or bettering my diet so I can’t say much in regards to that. I ran this on a bulk and like others have said, carb bloat wasn’t quite so bad but that’s all I can say for sure.
    I did do some research on Slinshot before buying, and many products of this ilk tote some kind of improved insulin sensitivity. I decided that this product might help someone else who might really need it: my mom. My mother is a Type II diabetic who is actually allergic to foreign insulin, meaning that when her blood sugar has shot up to over 600 (coma-inducing), she can’t just pin herself to take care of it. Despite taking two different medications and green coffee bean extract, she still has trouble keeping her blood sugar under 300 (yes, seriously). So I bought her a bottle and told her to take two capsules with dinner every day and then check her sugar an hour or two after (since blood sugar stays high for several hours after eating).
    Amazingly enough, her normal 300-400 blood sugar spike dropped to somewhere in the 100-200 range on average. The results weren’t the most consistent, but with moderate carbohydrate meals they were able to be brought down to a relatively normal range. That is where my rating comes in, not for how it worked on me. Her meals are pretty consistent and her exercise regiment hasn’t changed at all. The only foreign variable was Slinshot.
    Now before people crucify me for saying a little supplement like this helped “treat” my mother’s Type II, she takes many things in concert with this and it only helped when she ate slightly higher carbohydrate meals. I have no doubt in my mind that if she had a soda or something, Slinshot would do next to nothing. In the scenario I’ve given though, the product actually did work.

    Overall, I enjoyed using Slinshot. When you have to take in an extra 1000+ calories from what you burn to build muscle, this product was awesome for helping me keep the fat kid in me from coming out, and it looks promising for those who are looking for a natural alternative to Glucotrol or any other diabetes meds. If anyone has any further questions for me about my use of this product, lemme know via the comments! That’s all, over and out!

    Side Note: Since I haven’t seen much of green coffee bean on S.R., I would definitely suggest it as a blood sugar supplement since the changes in both fasting and post meal blood sugar were very noticible.

    Pros:
    Cons:
    • Might Help Diabetics
    • Good Value
    • Reduces Carb Bloat
    • Easy To Swallow
    • Simple Dosing Protocol

       I used Slinshot with my Methastadrol cycle. I actually took it before my morning meal of 1 cup of oats with a full banana mixed in add enough skim milk to make mushy, and then again directly after I lifted with a hefty carb/protein shake containing roughly 70g carbs 50g protein and 15g fat. Puru s has never let me down and it continued its reputation with this product. My recovery time was amazing and I felt that my pumps after my sessions were longer and fuller(this could be the Methastadrol also). My bodyfat went down however I can't really say it was all due to this product, but I can say with full confidence that it had to contribute to it. It is so easy to dose, easy to take, no bad taste(at least for me)but I take DAA powder straight with water and like the bitter taste. Felt more alive and by that it assisted in helping with lethargy on my cycle till the end of it. I got a bottle for 12.99 which im kicking myself in my butt for not loading up on this stuff when I had a chance. I have taken P-Slin also and it did not compare at all to what Slinshot gave me. I would recomend this to any stack simply for the recovery time it will give you.

         While browsing around for something to give my long term cut a bit of a boost, I found this unreviewed, untested little product and thought I would give it a try, and boy am I glad I did.

        Value: I got this product from amazon for about $15. At 45 servings per bottle that's about $.33 a serving, my dosing setup, 1 dose with my post workout and one dose with my dinner, gave me about 30 days or $.50 a day. A great value for such a useful product. I must mention however, that larger people are recommended to take 2 doses so bigger boys might need to double up their order.

        Taste/smell: the product comes in capsules which have no obvious smell or taste.

        Effectiveness: I used this product to help with cutting, and it did just that, I lost 7 pounds on the bottle. While that doesn't sound like much, it is a dream come true for me. I often have trouble with losing weight because my active lifestyle and physical work make it difficult to eat low calories and complete my daily tasks. This product fixes that, despite being on very low calories I was able to not only complete my difficult and heavy 5/3/1 workouts but also saw no loss of energy at my construction job.

        Side effects: I saw no side effects from this product, but if taken without carbs or with to few carbs it can make you feel a bit faint.

        Overall: I heartily recommend this product for anyone. It is worth the time and well worth the money.


        Pros:
        Cons:
        • Reduced Bodyfat
        • Increased Energy
        • Good Value
