Hello SR Community! I'm here to review FINAFLEX's thermogenic Pro Xanthine 500-XT, it's been awhile since I've reviewed a sup so bear with me eh? I stacked this product with Razor8 Blast Powder as my PWO, GreenMag as my creatine, and DAA as a booster. I was very impressed overall with this product and would most definitely see myself doing another cycle or two of this powerful and affordable weight loss agent! I'll be breaking down this review into a few different sections: Ingredient Profile, Effectiveness (This will include all of the claims that FINALEX makes on the front of the bottle.)...
Hello SR Community! I'm here to review FINAFLEX's thermogenic Pro Xanthine 500-XT, it's been awhile since I've reviewed a sup so bear with me eh? I stacked this product with Razor8 Blast Powder as my PWO, GreenMag as my creatine, and DAA as a booster. I was very impressed overall with this product and would most definitely see myself doing another cycle or two of this powerful and affordable weight loss agent! I'll be breaking down this review into a few different sections: Ingredient Profile, Effectiveness (This will include all of the claims that FINALEX makes on the front of the bottle.), Dosing/Value, and an Overall section. Well, let's get in it shall we?

Ingredient Profile: 8/10
Well, I'm assuming the rules of this site are the same as when I was super activemeaning that everyone still dislikes prop blends so let me start off by saying that it's a Prop Blend. However, look to the ingredient list on this page to see what each one is supposed to do, nice feature SR. There are two sets of prop blends, one for the thermogenic/fat loss and one for the mood elevator. The other reviews of this product have a detailed profile breakdown, look up FlashReborn's review for a more in depth review of ingredients.

Effectiveness: 9/10
The bottle makes the claim that this product will give you 5 effects: "prolonged appetite suppression, a concentration enhancement effect, antioxidants, hours of clean energy, and will reduce belly fat." I will break each one down and rate my results for each category, I'm also adding in a thermogenic category.

Prolonged Appetite Suppression: 5/10
I am a grazer by nature, I work on a farm and have access to a lot of raw food that I eat throughout the day. One of the main reasons I bought this weight loss supplement was to cut back on this grazing, however this was the only part of this product that did not deliver for me. I had no major appetite suppression to speak of. I am rating this section a 5 because even though I did not feel the effects of the appetite suppression that I was expecting (Comparing this product to OEP before it was discontinued where I had to force myself to eat) I have to believe that it did in fact work. I understand that that statement sounds strange but I'm sure it worked, just not as well as other appetite suppression supps I have taken in the past.

Concentration Enhancement: 8/10
I honestly felt like I could accomplish almost any task while taking this product. I had a sharp and keen sense of everything that was going on around me, my focus was on point on this. Being a part of this day and age focusing is difficult for anyone I'm sure, however it was much easier on this cycle. I felt like I was almost on cloud9 from the mood enhancers. The only downside in this section is that it took some time for my body to really get used to the product, it is very stim heavy and as such took a while to become accustomed to how it makes you feel.

Antioxidant Properties: ?/10
I didn't get sick, this section feels like a copout however really don't know how to rate it or review it, I felt fine this whole cycle and didn't feel run down.

Hours of Clean Energy: 9/10
As others have stated this product may work too well, this was the case for my first week or so taking it. I felt like a crack addict the first couple times I took this product, I was basically bouncing off the walls while working (good for my job but bad for others I'm sure). After my first week this reduced and the energy did indeed feel very clean. Again, it is a very stim heavy product and should be treated as such. I started with one cap in the morning and could feel the effects kicking in on my way to work, once I started working I really felt the energy kick in and man oh man it was great! I usually have 3-4 cups of coffee working long hours on the farm, getting up early etc etc, however while taking this I did not have to drink a single cup. I felt no real crash afterwards either. After a 2 weeks I upped the dosage and took a cap in the morning and one a little after lunch, I felt the rush and was bouncing off the walls for the first few days again until my body became accustomed to the stims, again still no crash or extremely jittery feeling after the first couple doses. One of the best products in my book for this part of the supplement!

Belly Fat Reducer: 9/10
Well as I stated in my opening I stacked this product with a few products I've used in the past and understand how all of them effect my body. Before my return to the gym (I started back up again around February) I weighed around 230lbs, much too high for my height 5'10 and build. I lost a solid 20lbs then the weight became harder to lose after the first few months. I bought and started my stack in July. Once completing this product I was under 200 and am sitting at a solid 195lbs. I lost a total of 15lbs while taking this, and most of it was in fact in my mid-section, hips, belly etc. It is remarkable once you start losing weight the difference you begin to see in 'old' pictures of yourselfmoving on. Like I said above I know and understand what most of the other products in my stack do with my body (all except my PWO) and the DAA is effective at losing weight as well, however I have to give this product credit for really pushing the weight loss to the next level. I have since kept the weight off and am looking to lose more.

Thermogenic: 10/10
Yep, that good. I love the feeling of a thermogenic and this product did not disappoint one bit. I sweat my a%^$ off. You could actually feel the product turn on and immediately you start to sweat more, it was great for me specifically. It was not an uncomfortable amount to be honest for me because of what I do. I sweat a lot from it, I see in some of the reviews that some users did not have the same experience I did from it.

Dosing/Value 9.5/10
This product lasted me a little more than a month. I started off by taking on capsule a day for about two weeks and then uped my dosage to two a day. I had no unusual side effects of problems in dosing and taking this product. I paid $25.99 for this product, in my mind that is a great deal for how well it worked. The price and effectiveness are well worth the $25 for a little more than a month's worth of product!!

Overall 9/10
While I didn't really experience what I thought I would in regards to the appetite suppression aspect of this supplement, the other parts of it more than made up for it. This product is great for anyone looking to lose those extra few pounds after months in the gym when progress slows, it gave me that little extra push to achieve my goal of being under 200lbs again. In my book this is a great product with some added bonus's including the mood/concentration enhancers that worked very well, for me, as well as the very effective thermogenic effect all culminating in lost weight. Without a doubt I'm already looking forward to my next cycle that includes this product. Thanks for reading SR and I look to become more involved again.

I ran Fat Smack during my cutting session over the summer and slightly after the Transformation Contest. Overall I was very pleased with the results of this product and will be breaking this review down into 4 sections: Ingredients, Dosing/Issues, Energy/Thermogenic Effectiveness, Overall

Ingredients: 9
Vitamin A 5000 IU
Vitamin C 60mg
Controlled Sympathomimetic Psychoactive Adrenal Stimulant Complex (Holy poo that sounds intense) 410mg (Caffeine)
Green Tea Extract 500mg
Cissus 300mg
Black Pepper Extract 5mg
Chili Pepper Extract 2mg

These ingredients are top notch in my opinion. This product brings something new to the fat burner world using the pepper extract which were felt strongly and were quite effective. They actually stimulate fat burning and both help to cut appetite which also was shown to be true in my case. The cissus, as mentioned in other reviews helped joint pain and fluidity of motion for my workouts as well. The green tea extract has been shown to stimulate burning fat and also just good for you. The Caffeine I'll get to in the next section.

Dosing/Issues: 7
I had a tough time getting the dosing of this product down...just read the bottle right? nope not that easy. This product MUST be taken with food...if not there is a massive pepper burn in your stomach that actually made me void my breakfast a few times...I also work on a farm in the sun so that didn't help but it also happened just sitting at home, not hard to avoid if taken with food (full meal). User error but still important to note, once I got the timing down this product was easy to dose and I no longer had any issues. I have a high stim tolerance and this product would probably not do so well with anyone who has a low tolerance to stimulants due to the caff amount, as well as the other ingredients.

Energy/Thermogenic/ Effectiveness: 9
This product gave me a constant supply of CLEAN energy that was highly appreciated! I had absolutely no crash and no jittery effects, like I've felt before on products like OEP, Super HD, and Alpha T2. Along with the energy I had all day from this product, my appetite was basically cut into thirds...I didn't not eat but this product definitely cut out all the excess snacking when I would be bored or just grazing on the farm throughout the day. Much appreciated!!! This product makes you SWEAT! Like, seriously sweating through shirts/undershirts, which continued in the gym...really just a great Thermogenic product.

Overall: 8
This product has a good value, gave me clean energy throughout the day, made me sweat throughout the day and definitely cut my appetite helping me in my fat loss quest! As long as you dose this product properly and take it on a full stomach you'll benefit from it.

First off I would like to thank Kevinhy for the opportunity to log and review this product for free! It was a great experience and great opportunity, however this does not give a free pass for a positive review! This review, like all others, will be unbiased and based strictly on the quality of the product only.

Alpha T2 is marketed as a targeted fat burner in essence , as you know from the previous reviews on this product contains a more tolerant version of yohimbine called Rauwolscine HCL (14mg) without the negative side effects, as well as Higenamine (40mg) and 3, 3 diiodo-I-thyronine...

Alpha T2 is marketed as a targeted fat burner in essence , as you know from the previous reviews on this product contains a more tolerant version of yohimbine called Rauwolscine HCL (14mg) without the negative side effects, as well as Higenamine (40mg) and 3, 3 diiodo-I-thyronine (300mg). Higenamine acts upon the beta-receptors which has been shown to burn fat without losing muscle. The 3, 3 Diiodo-I-Thyronine or as PES puts it the "˜T2' has been shown to increase metabolism and thermogenisis, giving thermogenic like effects and energy throughout the day.

What I experienced was somewhat different.

Effectiveness -4/10
I hesitate to mark this product poorly as this is the first negative review I've written, yet it has taken me some time to get around to writing this review, which shows how un-excited I've been about the product as a whole how I wasn't motivated to write this due to the lack of a positive experience. Over the course of my run on Alpha T2 I was cutting and expecting to see an increase in either weight loss, energy, appetite suppression, decrease in bf%...but what I noticed was that even though I was experiencing the product working in my body, none of these changed more than they normally would have using a cutting diet. I lost the same amount of weight I did the next month while not using AT2 as I did during the month I was. I had no extra energy throughout this run even though I made sure to take time off after my OEP run. My appetite did not change at all, unlike other users. My body composition was changing, however I attribute this change in body composition to my diet, workout routine and ErasePro which was being run at the same time. A positive that I did experience with this product was that it did not contain any caffeine or 1,3 dimeth, which meant that you could dose these products later in the day without having to worry about how much you've already taken. AT2 just seemed to not respond well in my system, even though I felt the product doing something (see side effects), it was not positive and the outcome was not anywhere close to "˜targeted fat loss' or fat loss in general.

Value -9/10
This is really where this product redeems itself for me at least. A run of AT2 will run you around $25 for a month's supply. This product is very reasonably priced, and coupled with the experience of the experience of others, I can see how this product would be quite popular.

Side Effects -8/10 Higher is worse
I regard myself as being very stim tolerant, able to take many doses of many different stims throughout the day. This product, however, had some very powerful effects that I did not expect. This product had a general warming sensation throughout my body about 30mins after dose (general thermogenic effect) and after this I would start to sweat...great generally for a thermogenic, however it did not stop there, it always (always) progressed to the point of turning my entire body freezing cold. I would be cold, put on something else and sweat through it, take it off and freeze again...all this sweating however resulted in no fat loss. I've been fine with other thermogenics and loved the feeling of sweating on OEP and Fat Smack, but this product took sweating to the extreme and my body did not respond well. Another, and more dangerous side effect I experienced was a heart rate issue. T2 has been shown to make the heart rate quite erratic at times and I definitely experienced this. Little, every day things, would make my heart rate jump up to a very high BPM range, much more than OEP and Fat Smack. It would get so bad that I wouldn't even be able to pick something light up in my room without my heart jumping out of my chest. Very annoying and quite dangerous effect, that has not yet been mentioned by other user reviews. The final side effect (I hesitate to mention even) deals with increased blood flow to some regions on my body. You've heard of Stime D***, well this was the opposite effect, I'm not bragging at all because it was so annoying after a week or so but about 45ish mins after taking this product I felt like I took a Viagra and was experiencing the "˜4 hour issue'. Wouldn't go away for at least an hour or two. These side effects did this product in for me.

Overall 6.5/10
This product did not work for me, yet based off of the price point and the great experiences from other users I cannot fully count this product a failure. This is definitely a "You Decide" moment, I've now told you my experience with this product and hopefully if you decide to try it you'll have a better one than I did. I liked the fact that it didn't have caffeine in it or 1,3 dimeth but coupled with the side effects and the lack of effectiveness, I cannot rate this product positively. Thank you for reading and don't take this as a criticism of PES as a brand, this product was just a miss for me personally.

The main reason I picked Up Your Mass as my weight gainer (and the reason why I picked a weight gainer in general) was because I was worried about hitting my macros during my bulk session in the fall due to the fact that I dorm at my school and am subject to the dining halls meal plan for most of my food. I picked UYM purposely due to the fact that it had already great reviews and its clear and great sources of carbs/proteins and other goodies!

I picked UYM purposely due to the fact that it had already great reviews and its clear and great sources of carbs/proteins and other goodies! I ran a full three 5lb tubs of this stuff and poo it worked and did what it I hoped it would do, which was to up my overall calorie count in a clean way to really pack on some muscle and not just fat! Well let's just jump into this then!

Profile 10/10
This is why this product is so effective and why so many people use this product as their gainer. What's in it? Well a full serving is:

Calories- 510
Calories from fat- 99
Total fat- 11g
Saturated fat- 2g
Trans fat- 0
Cholesterol- 2mg
Sodium- 435mg
Potassium- 800mg
Total Carbs- 58g
Fiber- 11g
Sugars- 2g
Protein- 46 Net carbs- 47g

This is a great ratio (Cals could be a little more) and has little fat in it and the fats that it does have in it are made up of Essential Fatty Acids. The carb blend is where this product shines, however, the carb blend is made up from quality carbs such as barley, oats, and oat fibers. These are all low glycemic carbs which means that they digest slowly in your body, keeping you fed and energized longer than most other gainer carbs which are quick and less effective. The protein blend in this product really is just meh, not the best but not the worst. It consists of a Soy Protein Isolate, Whey Concentrate and a Casein protein, it'll keep you fed for some time, and keep a steady supply of protein to your muscles, but this is where this product could improve a bit. What this profile amounts to is a clean quality product that won't pack on fat.

Taste/Dosing/Mixability 10/10/10!

Taste
CinnaBun 10/10 Best Tasting Supplement I've ever had. It actually tastes like the name suggests, great cinnamon flavor!...however after 1.5 tubs it gets old so I'd suggest getting a different flavor which leads us to:
Fudge Brownie 9/10 Little different flavor here but it was a welcome change from the CinnaBun...Tasted chocolaty and a bit malty at the same time, very nice flavor. I even made a sludge outa this stuff during times when I had to go without food for some time (dining hall closed and I had class or what have you.) Consisted of Whole Milk, 4 scoops UYM, Peanut Butter and a cup of Oats...delicious and filing for a fewww hours.

Dosing/Mixability
Easy enough to dose. The dosage is 4 scoops, which is quite a bit and I wouldn't recommend downing this stuff at once unless you're going to be going without a meal for a couple hours. I dosed this at 2 scoops in the morning and then 2 scoops later in the day, generally about an hour or two before my workouts, provided clean energy throughout the gym. Even though this is quite a bit of powder at the bottom of a shaker cup I never had a problem with mixability which is outstanding!

Value 8/10
Pretty okay value on this product, however, it would be foolish to just run one 2lbs tub of this stuff and I think buying even one 5lbs (Which only has 17 servings in it) tub wouldn't be ideal either. I bought this product for around 26 bucks a tub or about 1.5bucks a serving. Like I said I bought three tubs so my gainer alone cost me around 78 dollars, not a bad value but not great. It is still better than most of the other gainers out there in my opinion and for what you are paying for it is definitely worth it.

Effectiveness 9/10
Well like I said I ran three 5lbs tubs of this stuff and would recommend no less than two if you are serious about trying this product. MHP Up Your Mass is a great, quality gainer...that being said a gainer is really just supposed to be an additional source of calories in case you can't hit your macros that day from whole foods...What I'm trying to say here is that you can't use this product and expect to gain pounds, you can't believe the label it has on it and your diet has to be in check if you're bulking and has to be spot on to minimize fat gains. Taking all of that into perspective MHP Up Your Mass provided quality calories, carbs, and protein when I needed it. I gained about 2-3lbs a week while using this product for a total weight gain of about 18lbs, now obviously not all of the was muscle! This product is very good when it comes to meal replacement, especially if you add to it (Like my sludge!) as I would go a couple hours without eating while in a long class and be fine. My only complaints with this product are that as well as Upping my Mass...it Uped my Gass as well, but that is typically to be expected when ingesting a gainer, and the claims on the container which state gain 16lbs of rock hard muscle in 5 weeks...come on. Other than that This gainer, I believe, is leaps and bounds above many other gainers out there due to the carb blend it has in it as well as the good fats and slow digesting proteins. I felt that this product improved my energy throughout the day by providing that extra boost with the complex carbs it had in it which was a nice plus. Recovery remained high throughout my bulk but that was most likely due to the amount of calories I was taking in...so I guess UYM helped this a little.

Overall 9/10
Great quality gainer here guys. Used in conjunction with a quality bulking diet you will add weight and minimize fat gains. This product in my book is great and if I ever need assistance getting in those last few extra calories I will be turning once again to MHP Up Your Mass. As I've said above, due to the clean/quality ingredients, this product is (in my mind) above most other gainers out there! Give it a shot next time you bulk and you won't be disappointed (Even if it's just for that CinnaBun taste lol!).

Thanks for reading guys, keep killing it!

If you've yet to try this supplement...WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??!! It is a fan favorite around here, and for some good reasons! This creatine has smashed my expectations of what I was thinking when I picked it up at the local Vitamin Shoppe, due to the fact that my Kre-Alk was empty and I needed a creatine to sustain me through the end of the semester. I made an impulse buy and picked this up...I am so glad I did and am now hooked, and will be using this for the foreseeable future!

Previous creatine exposure: Kre-Alk, Creapure, C-Bol, "Amplified" Creatine from GNC a few others.

Gonna break this down, let's go!

What is it? Profile 10/10

Green MAGnitude is comprised of:
Serving Size: 1 Scoop (10.4 grams)
Servings per Container: 40 or 80!
Magnesium - 350mg
Magnesium Creatine Chelate - 2500mg
Dicreatine Malate - 2500mg
Betaine Anhydrous - 2000mg
L-Taurine - 2000mg
L-Tyrosine - 500mg

Taken From the Manufacturer's Website...summarized hah: Magnesium Creatine Chelate and Dicreatine Malate both increase the production and utilization of ATP, this blend also "boosts energy" it may also reduce Lactic acid and reduce body fat. The added goodies increase physiological and metabolic functions supposedly, as well as provide a wide array of benefits.

Dosing/Mixability/Taste 10/10
Dosed at 1 Scoop a day either before or after a workout. I dosed mine half during my workout and half at the end, I just like sipping on something during my workout other than water. Easy to dose. Mixability is also a ten due to the fact that I never had to experience a gritty taste at the end of the liquid, it all mixed in smooth. Taste, really doesn't matter but when something tastes good you're more likely going to like it haha, this stuff tastes great. I never thought I would like a supplement flavor of sour green apple but this taste simply just works for this product. It was refreshing to sip on throughout my session in the gym, not too sweet, not too tart...it was really great and a nice break from bad tasting powders. Best taste I've had via supps.

Value 10/10
I mean, come on. Do you see the price of this stuff...23.89 for the tub of 40 servings or 59 cents a serving, OR and RECOMMENDED= 24.99 for 80 SERVINGS! 0.o yep you read that correctly 80 servings for 25 bucks, or 31 cents a serving. The value of this product is unbeatable and it is a better value that the competition by far.

Effectiveness 9/10 (Only because I couldn't give straight 10s across the board and there is always room for improvement.)

Endurance was up after taking this product for a few days. Endurance remained high throughout my entire cycle of it and I felt that I was really able to push out those last few reps easier, leading to more reps and more strength gains of course. Muscle density was higher than it has been in the past while using this product. My muscles felt harder and looked denser than ever before, extremely pleasant. Strength gains, I really wasn't expecting much in terms of gaining any strength while on this product, As I am currently still cutting and have felt weaker than during my bulk (obviously, not taking in same cal and not same weight etc), however I really felt like I could just pick up and pull any weight towards the end of this cycle and hit a new deadlift PR of 2x my bodyweight for 3 during the last week. While this all may be because of my diet and such I really do feel that Green Mag helped out here a lot, if it didn't improve strength and muscle gains, it certainly made sure that any loses were kept to a bare minimum during my cut. There was little to no water retention, as I've been off this product for 3 weeks now and have not experienced a drop in weight or loss of muscle "˜fullness'. This is by far the most effective creatine supplement I've used during my lifting experience so far.

Overall 9/10
I am so glad I purchased this supplement and will now buy it due to its sheer effectiveness and not impulse and have recently put in an order for the 80 serving container to last me the rest of the summer. I can't wait to sip on this during my workouts again and experience the same effectiveness as before. As I've said above this is the most effective creatine supp I've experienced so far and is a fan favorite here so it really doesn't need any more + hahah but still I just wanted to share my experience with it. Thank you for reading...I'm sure I write too much haha.

Well well well, it seems a D-Pol review is all the rage these days, so I guess I'll toss mine out there! During this cycle I was also taking the staple supps as well as SuppressC.

What is it-
D-Pol is a DAA supplement with the added bonus of having a pump aspect in it. I don't feel like repeating the other guys here so if you'd like to see the full ingredient breakdown for this product.

The pills are pretty big but just get em down. If you leave them on your tongue for some time (I'm not sure why I did) they start to have a tart taste just like regular DAA. Dosage...

D-Pol is a DAA supplement with the added bonus of having a pump aspect in it. I don't feel like repeating the other guys here so if you'd like to see the full ingredient breakdown for this product.

Taste/Dosage 10/10
The pills are pretty big but just get em down. If you leave them on your tongue for some time (I'm not sure why I did) they start to have a tart taste just like regular DAA. Dosage was very, very simple 3 pills 60-30mins prior to your workout (with or without food (for the 60 mins) depending on if you've already eaten your PWO meal or not). I've used this product on an empty stomach and on a full stomach and had no change in the effects of the pump aspect of it so that is a plus in my book.

Value 10/10
I bought this product for literally $20.00 and you get a full months serving...plus like everyone else has said it is a two for one deal, a test booster and a PWO pump product! Great Value each serving is right about .66 cents (hopefully my math is correct). Simply put you cannot beat this price, it should be within everyone's price range.

Effectiveness- Gonna break this down into two categories like everyone else!

OVERALL EFFECTIVENESS 8/10

Pump Aspect 10/10
If you've been following my log or reading my reviews you'll know that pump products normally do nothing for me. I've tried Yok3d, and C-Bol and both of these products did nothing for me in terms of feeling a pump. The first dose of D-Pol, right about 45mins after taking it, I felt a sensation I've never really felt before and it was AWESOME. Every muscle felt full, every muscle had this "let's go" feeling and while I was lifting I had my first "chest splitting pump"...I loved it, needless to say. I was also able to control my heart rate much easier while on this product (I'm not sure if this is normal but anyway) before a set I would bump up my heart rate just by breathing and I would get that pump feeling all over my body and once I started a set like this, it felt much easier to push out more reps and a high weight, aka endurance increased. I also, by the end of my cycle felt that my muscles were harder and more dense, but this may also have been due to the Suppress-C or Kre-Alk I was also taking.

Test Boosting Aspect 6/10
If you look at my DAA review you'll see that I loved DAA (at 3.2gs per day) but for some reason, maybe it was the Suppress-C, I did not feel the test boosting qualities of D-Pol as strongly as plain DAA. I know that I'm 20 years old and this might just be the case for me but I did not feel the same way as I did when I was on my DAA cycle. During my DAA cycle, if you look to my AI DAA review, I felt a confidence in the gym which was less pronounced during my D-Pol cycle. I did have less acne than on my DAA cycle which I believe is both good and bad, good is self explanatory, bad-maybe D-Pol just doesn't give people acne but due to this I knew for a fact that the DAA was doing its job, along with this I had much more oily skin with DAA than D-Pol, same good and bad. I did experience a small leaning out effect but this could have also been due to the fact that I was taking Suppress-C. Vascularity definitely did increase which was a nice plus though. I feel as if I would've taken maybe two cycles of D-Pol these effects would have become more pronounced due to the fact that I really started feeling the effects of DAA during the 5th and 6th week, so please take this into consideration.

Overall for D-Pol 9/10
This product is great, and even though I did not feel the full effects of the test boosting quality of it I still highly recommend this product to anyone looking to give them that extra edge in the gym. The price is right, the pump is sick, the boost in test (for some) gives them that extra edge in the gym...overall it's a win (Yup that just happened.). If you're looking to try a test booster look no farther than D-Pol plus you get a PWO that is great as well. Thank you all for reading!

 Pros:
 Cons:
  • Multi Purpose Product
  • Can Be Used Bulking/cutting
  • Very Effective
  • Works From Day One
  • Very Easy To Apply
  • Leaned Out
  • Lost Fat And Retained Muscle
  • Cortisol Crushing Feels Horrible
Hey everyone here is my review for Suppress-C, an advanced cortisol control agent. I decided to use it during my cut for 4 weeks. I know a lot of people use it during PCT but, since I am not 21, I ran it with D-Pol and OEP and had really great results. These three products stacked together is an amazing natty stack that I would recommend to anyone who's been hitting the gym hard for a few years and has knowledge about supps already under their belt, as the side effects from each can be harsh for some.

Hey everyone here is my review for Suppress-C, an advanced cortisol control agent. I decided to use it during my cut for 4 weeks. I know a lot of people use it during PCT but, since I am not 21, I ran it with D-Pol and OEP and had really great results. These three products stacked together is an amazing natty stack that I would recommend to anyone who's been hitting the gym hard for a few years and has knowledge about supps already under their belt, as the side effects from each can be harsh for some. (Of course I am taking all the staple supps: protein creatine (kre-alk) fish oil and a multi)

What is it? Suppress-C is B-androstenetriol (Androst 5-ene-3b, 7b,17b-triol) and it is a topical gel. In Chichi's review he explains exactly what this compound is and the studies behind it please look to this review for guidance if you'd like to obtain more info. Basically this product crushes your Cortisol Levels. Cortisol is a steroid your body produces naturally to relieve stress, yet it also has some very nasty effects on building muscle such as putting your muscles into a state of catabolism (or a state where your body uses your muscles as fuel breaking them down, Cortisol also produces a large amount of Visceral Fat (or fat that will be used quickly as energy) which builds up around your internal organs...example love handles. SO Controlling Cortisol is a good thing? Ehh it can go both ways you'll see the effectiveness for me as well as the side effects of this product.

Value 10/10 Even though this product is now discontinued I still managed to find it, and at a steal of a price too. For a full bottle it was $19.99 so right around 24 bucks with shipping, even for a non-discontinued item that is a great price! You get 60 servings of 2 squirts, so this product lasts a full month. Right about 30 cents a use or 60 cents a day.

Dosage 9/10 I really enjoyed the fact that this is a topical cream, especially because it was my first supplement of this kind. I really felt that everything was absorbed quicker due to this and I'll talk about that in the effectiveness section. You are supposed to dose this product at 2 squirts twice daily spaced 8-12 hours apart preferably after a shower once you're dry. It was very simple to use (after the first time...that time I struggled a bit haha) and I felt that it dried fairly quickly. The bottle says to use an area of skin where it is thin so that it may better absorb into your body, such as the inner thigh or the upper inner arm. I used both of these areas in fact. First I used the inner thigh and found that it stayed on my thighs for about 20 mins and after about 2 weeks using this product I switched it my upper inner arm in which it dried in about 3. (Also if you are prone to chaffing you should stay away from using it on your thighs...duh ha I found out the hard way.) Oh and it smells like sun-screen so...have fun explaining that to whomever. It is a pretty strong smell in actuality and towards the end of the bottle it smelled more like alcohol than anything else so make sure you shake it each time you use it.

Effectiveness 10/10 This product began working almost immediately. I knew it would take around 12 or so days for my D-Pol to kick in but man, this started working around day 3 for me. This is the fastest supp I've felt that deals with hormones and the first effects from it were really not too pleasant. (See Side Effects section) I really started to see positive effects from this product at about day 8. I noticed that I was looking more defined in areas that are generally not defined on me, such as the love handles and my arms. Like I said I ran this product on a cut and from the lower calorie intake plus this product (and D-Pol) I felt that I was able to shed the pounds faster but at the same time retain all of my muscle that I had gained from my bulk, and along with that all of my muscles were becoming more defined! After taking this product the effects of it were evident, I lost about eight lbs overall during my 4 week cycle (2lbs a week) and feel that I cut bf as well. I feel that this product enabled me to drop my calories in order to drop weight (in fat) yet at the same time retain my muscle that was gained during my bulk. (You could say the weight lost is due to OEP and cutting calories but the retention of muscle is something that I can safely attribute to Suppress-C as I've taken OEP before on a cut and did not retain as much muscle as this cycle.)

Side Effects 4/10- While the positive Effects of this product may be great (Fat loss, retention of muscle, more definition) the negative side effects of this product almost made me want to stop taking it. The first negative is almost a burning sensation after application...nothing too serious and I could deal with this quite easily. The second negative is where the real problems for me set in. Right around day 10 I started to feel very anxious all the time. Cortisol (as stated above) controls your stress levels and when your body has no Cortisol obviously you will be stressed out most of the day. I felt anxious at all times of the day and because I am currently in school the effects were at least doubled. While I did not have headaches or problems sleeping the anxiety really took its toll on me...it was kind of like a feeling that the entire world was crashing down upon me at all times of the day...pretty awful if you ask me. At about week 3 I decided to drop the dosage down to 1 squirt twice daily and like Chichi said this made the negative effects less noticeable (but still present). Also like Chichi said there is a reason your body produces it and if I take another cortisol control product it will be over the summer when there is much less stress!!

Overall 9/10 Yeah the math doesn't add up...sue me. This product I feel would be a great addition to any PCT and from my experience is a great addition to a natty stack for more experienced gym goers who have yet to (or won't) move into the PH world. There are some really nice positives about this product like: almost targeted fat reduction, retention of muscle, and a real improved body composition/definition, but there are also some real negatives as well...but that is to be expected when you crush something your body naturally produces. This product is worth a try before it is gone for good and for the price I got it at, you can't beat it. I was told from more experienced members on this site that this product is one of the strongest cortisol control products out there and from my experience this is true.

Thank you for reading!

This review is for Anabolic Innovations DAA. I'm not going to write/talk about the science of DAA. You can find out that by yourself by looking at the other reviews or just by looking through the forum. By now most of us know how effective this stuff is, 42% increase in free test after taking it for 12 days at 3.2g/day.

First up is value. (Yes I know I'm 20 and my test levels are high already, by the way.) Also I apologize for the longgg review hah.

Value 10
I bought this at $20 shipped and all from a member on this site, even without this deal you can find this product on lockout at $19.95 for 300g. This value is superb to most other DAA products out there because you get 300g instead of 100g, Example of this is Primaforce who has their DAA at $18.50 for 100g. Really a pretty good value if you run this product at 3.2g/day you'll get right above three 4 week cycles (3.2x7, 22.4x4, 89.6g per cycle 300g/89.6 equals 3.35 times to run this...hopefully this math is right if it's not really lemme know...then go nose dive into a math book...I hate math) Enough of the sidetracking bottom line is that the value is great for DAA by Anabolic Innovations. Next is Dosing Mixability and Taste

Other supps while taking this- Well I was on my Fall bulk during this time so that has to factor into everything as well but I'm sure that the DAA kept fat off while I increased cals. I was also taking Con-Cret a multi and fish-oil.

Dosing/Mixability/Taste 6
I took this product in the morning along with some fats (read somewhere it absorbs more idk if this is real or not but I figured why not) and would mix it with water. Like I said above 3.2g/day most of it mixed fine but there was always a gritty taste towards the end of the mixture. I personally couldn't stand the taste kind of tangy and tart not my cup of tea, but if you mixed it with iced tea or OJ it wasn't bad actually...ehh just down it and get over.

Effectiveness at 3.2g/day 8
Effectiveness at 6.4g/day 6

Week 1
At 3.2g/day I felt this kick in around day 10ish. I felt an increase in energy and while I didn't get blood tests done, I felt my test increase. Not much really happened this first week at 3.2g but I did feel more oily skin.

At 6.4g/day I felt this kick in around day 8. Same feelings as the first week yet stronger. Basically I was feeling everything sooner at 6.4g/day which was nice for the first couple weeks not so great the last two but I'll get to that. Again really only oily skin this first week.

Week 2
At 3.2g/day- This product really started to kick in around now. I felt an increase in my energy again and started to have an Alpha Male feeling in the gym and really just all the time, it was great because this is a feeling I normally don't have. I felt like I could push out a couple more reps towards the middle of week two and the side effects of test were all there, oily skin, increased acne etc didn't see any bf% reduction yet but I felt good at week 2.

At 6.4g/day- At this time I feel like I was in my week 3 at 3.2g/day really. I noticed increased strength, a stronger alpha male feeling, and pump (again rare for me I've taken C-bol and Yok and didn't feel it) and a really increased libido...I mean really increased. I also started taking this about a 30mins to an hour before the gym because of this pump feeling. This week was really great at 6.4g/day. I also noticed a decrease in BF% at least that is what it seemed like looking in the mirror (of course it could just be my eyes).

Week 3
At 3.2g/day- Basically the same as week 2 at 6.4g/day to tell you the truth. Increased strength, decreased bf, alpha male, increased libido all of that and I still felt clean energy from this product.

At 6.4g/day- Really felt okay for the first half of the week actually it was pretty awesome to tell you the truth but around Thursday I started to feel pretty bad. Increased anxiety, the energy I had didn't feel the same (felt kind of dirty really), the oily skin kept making me ***ed, increased aggression and not the good kind in the gym just little things really. At the middle of Week 4 (like Tuesday) I stopped taking this at 6.4g/day I didn't like the way I was feeling. My body no longer wanted this stuff in my system at this point I guess I'm not sure just my experience.

Week 4
At 3.2g/day This was really the best week for me. Everything was up (...everything). I felt great and had loads of energy. My strength increased a lot, that alpha male feeling was still there and the pump was as well. My roommate noticed the decrease in bf saying how I looked leaner, especially mid-section. My muscles felt fuller for sure. I felt like I was on the top of the world this week. I broke through PR's and was eating everything in sight.

Overall at 3.2g/day 9 at 6.4g/day 6

I really feel that this is a great product and I'm sure that if I were older I'd also appreciate the 6.4g/day in the long run at my age it was too much. (I'm not sure if upping the dosage increases test more...or even if after 12 days your test is still increased because the study was only for 12 days.) I would suggest this product to someone who knows what they are doing in the gym, and older of course. Really just an easy to use product that goes a long way and lasts a long time. You can take my 6.4g/day experience into account if you want (It was suggested to me by a couple people here.) also my age. I saw good gains from this product and it kept fat off of me while on a bulk. This product is effective in my book if you want to front load it you can until day 12 (6.4g) then just maintenance after (3.2). Worth a try if you haven't already guys. Thanks for reading through this book haha.

    This is a review for Sci-Fit's Beta Alanine 2000 Powder not the Gel Caps in actuality.

    Hopefully most of us by this time know what Beta-Alanine is yet for those of us still in the dark about this great product here is a little background info! Beta Alanine-BA is a Non-Essential Amino Acid that promotes muscular energy. It improves muscular endurance and buffers your muscles from normal fatigue.

    This is a review for Sci-Fit's Beta Alanine 2000 Powder not the Gel Caps in actuality.

    Hopefully most of us by this time know what Beta-Alanine is yet for those of us still in the dark about this great product here is a little background info! Beta Alanine-BA is a Non-Essential Amino Acid that promotes muscular energy. It improves muscular endurance and buffers your muscles from normal fatigue. Through many studies done (Pubmed) BA was shown to decrease Intra-muscular Acidosis (why you get tired while performing an exercise) which is done through the production of additional Carnosine. Beta-Alanine, along with L-Histidine, has shown to be the limiting factor on how much Carnosine your body can produce. The more you are able to produce the more your muscles are buffered from fatigue therefore improving endurance. Studies also show that it may also help in the production of lean muscle due to the fact that you are able to do more reps because you aren't as tired as quickly!

    Enough about the background info lets jump into this review!

    Dosage- I dosed this as directed on the bottle which is 1 teaspoon (2g) twice daily for four weeks then after that just 2g once daily. Obviously the best time to use this product is as a pre-workout and I really wouldn't recommend taking more than 2 servings of this stuff because it is powerful. (I jumped straight into it with around 5ish grams and was in the bathroom the entire workout, take it slow in the beginning and then increase dosage after you build up a tolerance.) I have taken this product over the course of many stacks so listing what else I've been taking would be pointless but no matter what I was taking this product for me was always consistent.

    Effectiveness 9 Really nice feeling each time I would take this product right about 10-15 minutes later so it really works fast! Very Effective, you feel the Beta-Tingles every-time you take this product, kind of like an itchy feeling that can be overwhelming for some in the beginning but you really start to love them after some time! This product allows you to go beyond your normal limit on reps from this I felt like I could always push out more reps and felt like I couldn't run out of energy throughout my whole workout and this lasted the entire bottle. Each dose I would know it was time for the gym (after having this as my only pre-workout for months on end my body just got used to going to the gym after getting these tingles!)

    Taste/Mixability/Ingredient Profile 10 Really simple here 2g would mix perfectly in about 6oz of water and it was a strange taste towards the beginning but after awhile you get used to it and even look forward to it! The Ingredient Profile is great and simple-no prop blend here! Profile is 1780mg BA with the other precursor to Carnosine L-Histidine 220mg.

    Value 10 As the reviews before this one state this stuff is really dirt cheap in its bulk form. I bought this from BB.com at $16 for 300g or 150 servings so right about 10 cents a serving...ridiculous. I ordered this on July 14th...I just ran out yesterday. Really great value on this great product. I do however recommend getting the powder (little more expensive) over the soft gels due to reliability and the ability to dose it the way you please more effectively than caps.

    Overall 9 Great product, Great Value, and has a Great Effect. I would definitely recommend it to anyone, especially if you're looking to stay away from stims or trying to create your own pre-workout concoction! As the expert reviewers said if this product isn't in your stack you are definitely missing out!

    Like many on this site I tried C-Bol because so many others had been talking it up and recommending it! I have to say I am thoroughly pleased with the results. Unfortunately I never got that pump that everyone else was talking about but I think I may be an N.O. Non-responder (I have tried Yok3d a lot of different ways, opening the capsules, different timing, and different amounts. In the end I got nothing...ever. I will try Nitrox II soon just to make sure of this and let everyone know.) Even though I didn't feel a large aspect of C-Bol in my opinion it is still a great product that anyone ...

Non-responder (I have tried Yok3d a lot of different ways, opening the capsules, different timing, and different amounts. In the end I got nothing...ever. I will try Nitrox II soon just to make sure of this and let everyone know.) Even though I didn't feel a large aspect of C-Bol in my opinion it is still a great product that anyone looking for a new creatine should try! I'm not going to go into the ingredients or just say what is on the bottle that can be found in the other reviews for this product no need to be redundant.

    My stack during my bulk and while I was taking C-Bol included: C-Bol, Glycobol, Dymatize Elite XT, Dymatize Elite Whey Isolate, MHP Up Your Mass, NOW Dextrose, GNC Multi Digestive Enzyme/Triple Strength Fish Oil, Anavite, Glutamine. Bulking diet, eating clean and hitting the gym hard etc Split goes like this: Monday-Back, Tuesday is Chest, Wednesday rest, Thursday Arms, Friday Shoulders, Saturday Legs, Sun rest.

    Dosing – Like Irish and Kingmeat suggested, I dosed this at 6 pre and 6 post workout for 7 days and then just 6 pre for most of the rest of the bottle. I decided to mix it up around halfway through the bottle and did 2 in the morning 2 pre and 2 post. Finally I decided on 6 pre for workout days and 2am 2 around lunch and two at night on rest days.

    (Also if you buy this in store make sure that caps are not broken up, first purchase at a local Vitamin Shoppe had a few that were broken apart and the powder was all over the bottle, I returned it. At the end of my bottle same thing happened, powder all over.)

    Taste/Smell 1 of 10 – I have to say when you first open this bottle it smells like pure poo! After awhile taking this unfortunately your gas starts to smell exactly like it...its devastating to anyone around, including yourself be careful! No burps really just really really bad smelling gas. My roommate says is smells like "Pure Butt"...nice example.

    Value 7 – This product ran me 35 bucks with 4 dollar shipping so basically $40 for 300 capsules or 50 servings so it's not too bad, not as cheap as regular mono, like others have said, but I feel that this price is warranted especially for those where the pump aspect works! Another great part about this product is that it not only has C-Bol's Patent Pending creatine in it (Creatine Nitrate) but it also has Creatine HCL (Con-Cret's creatine) and Creatine Anhydrous which I've not heard of yet. Other than those three you know exactly what you're taking because it is not a prop blend.

    Effectiveness 9 – Like I said I did not experience the pump of C-Bol even still this product works. It definitely helped me bulk up, I am on a very large bulk right now (after last year's 50lbs cut) and over the past 4 weeks I've gained ____lbs and I'm sure with the help of C-Bol (and the rest of my stack...aka glycobol) most of this was not fat. I had very little (if any) water retention even though I was drinking water throughout the day. My veins were popping out all the time at the gym and I really had noticeable strength gains. (I can't say 100% for sure how much my lifts increased because they have still yet to peak so any number I throw out there would sound too much.) Strength was up after the loading phase so right around 7-9 days I felt it. It did really help me push out those last few reps I'm sure. My endurance was up for sure but unlike others my recovery did not improve, but my energy did as well! I have tried both Kre-Alk and Creatine Mono and I personally think C-Bol beats them both out.

    Overall 8 – I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking to try something different other than normal creatine. It has a versatile ingredient profile that has more than one purpose, a pump product that can "rival any other great pump product", and a great creatine as well. It works great on a bulk and since there really isn't any water retention I'm sure it would work just as well on a cut!
