I would first like to state that this bottle only lasted me 22 days per the recommended dosage of 6 caps a day. But I'm pretty sure I got all the effects that this product was going to give in that time span, so another bottle wasn't necessary.
I started this product one month after my PCT from Havoc, and was using this in conjunction with a really healthy diet and focused more on high intensity cardio than weight lifting during this 3 week period. The first day I took it, I dosed 2 pills in the morning and went to work. I felt a little warmer when I got to work and felt a little kick from the caffeine (I'm stim intolerant in most cases)
Then about 4 hours later I dosed another 2 pills, then 3 more hours after that I dosed another 2 pills, a total of 6 per day. I kept the dosing protocol the same throughout this bottle. That first day I noticed my appetite was supressed somewhat, had actually a little more 'jittery' energy than normal that day, and my cardio session that afternoon was normal, maybe a little more sweat than usual. Sleep was normal that night.
Those effects basically lasted about 5-7 days, with the occasional niacin flush that I would get an hour after consuming the product,but that also went away. Other supplements I used during this time was Supress-C, Protein, Multi-vitamins, and Fish Oil. Also a T-booster, but that was towards the first 3 days only.
During the 22 days I took this product, my weight went from 204lbs to 199lbs. A 5 pound drop seemed great, but I don't think I can contribute it all to this product. Like I stated earlier, I was focusing a lot more on cardio, my calories never exceeded 2000 per day, and I would like to say the Supress-C was doing the majority of the work.
The first week was great because it helped supress my appetite, but that soon went away. I was feeling warmer in general in regards to the thermogenic properties involved in this product, but that also was short lived. I would have generally increased the dosage, but since I was given only one bottle, and was following directions, I stayed with the plan I had created.
This product was underdosed in my opinion, and is priced pretty heavily. I found it online for $45.00, and thats for 22 days at the dosage I was taking. Really pricey for a product that was a lackluster. If this was a discount supplement, something around $20.00 for a month supply, I could see it being 'maybe' worth it, but once again, you would have to increase the dosage after a week to keep the effects up.
This product has potential, like most others I suppose. It should be cheaper, the ingredient profile needs to be tweaked with a bit more, and perhaps the right amount of pills per bottle to make it a actual 30-day supply. I did lose 5 pounds during this time, and I would like to say that this product had a factor in that. I guess a true test of this product would be to live completely normal and see if weight is lost during that time, but that isn't how I roll to be honest.
Once again, thanks QNT, and I hope with some of this feedback you can comeback with a RipTek V3 and possibly rival Oxy Elite Pro!
