Supplement Review: Monster adds two new Flavors! Ultra Fiesta and Ultra Rose!

Monster is at it again! New ultra drinks in pretty color cans! I just tried the ultra fiesta and it is a party in your mouth! I feel the fiesta! Lol it is good! It tastes similar to their Reign mango drink. How you get fruity tastes from chemicals is some witch doctor shit!

No seriously, it does taste good even though it’s not that good for you. gives you plenty of energy to carry on with your day!

I haven’t tried the rose yet but as you can see I did buy it! Not sure when I will try it as I have been trying to avoid energy drinks, but I will update you when I do. Hopefully, it won’t be too super sweet! I don’t want a cavity just trying it 😝

**update** April 30th 2020

Just had the Rose flavor and if I drank it as a creator I would give it a pink label too lol. If pink was a flavor this drink tastes pink lol.

Surprisingly it’s not super sweet. It’s not bad. It says pink lemonade guava strawberry I don’t taste the lemonade but it does taste mildly guava strawberry. Not bad but not one of my favorites. The green ultra is still my favorite.


9 year Anniversary!

Thank you so
Much for making this happen and keeping this site alive! Thank you to all the visitors! Here’s to 9 more years or fun!

Supplement Review: new Reign Inferno Jalapeno Strawberry energy drink

I’m sorry for not writing in a while but I’m back! Work is really busy! I started a crazy summer diet! One meal and 3 meal replacement shakes! So far two weeks I’m down 30lbs. Many more to go! I will try to document my journey. As for energy drinks I have cut them out of my diet as I am getting older and they aren’t good for you. However I had to just taste this! This is insane!

Have you ever had something that was supposed to taste like something but it wasn’t even close Like pizza flavored chips, they don’t taste like pizza. What about barbecue flavored chips they don’t taste like barbecue sauce. This drink does not taste like jalapeño flavored chips or jalapeño flavored cheese, yes those are spicy but it just doesn’t taste like a jalapeño.

Well that wasn’t made by Reign! Or I should say Monster! This drink absolutely tastes like you bit into a jalapeño and you’re sucking on it. No I don’t know if that’s fortunately or unfortunately, because this drink has me perplexed. I am just in shock and awe that this drink absolutely taste like a jalapeño.

Here is the shocking part! You get slammed on the tip and the center of your tongue with the sweet strawberry and at the same time the back of your tongue tastes the bitter pepper! I’ve never had that simultaneous effect before! It’s usually one then you get hit with the other!

I’m really not sure if I like drinking a jalapeño pepper! I have never tasted this realism in a drink before, and I am kind of scared of the mad scientist that made this!

I have never been halfway down a can before and I’m not sure how I feel about it! my motto is hot sauce on everything I honestly don’t know if that holds true, do I like hot sauce in my energy drink?

You know what I don’t think I like it. I just recently got reading glasses and I’m thinking to myself am I just too old? Would a younger me like this? This drink had me questioning my very existence! I still don’t know if I like it…

**Update** March 10th 2020

The blue drink pictured above isn’t good at all I think both these new Reign drinks suck! This True Blue is too sweet! There’s also a Red Dragon flavor that I haven’t seen in the wild yet. I’ll keep my eye out for it, but I won’t keep my hopes up for the taste! Stick to the regular Reign drinks they released two new flavors that I saw. Straw sublime and Mang-o-matic.

I had the Mango and it’s absolutely delicious it’s pure witchcraft! It tastes exactly like mango fruit juice!

*review 4/21/19

DO NOT BUY THESE!!

These are absolute shit!!

1. It says chocolate flavor! But if you read on it says unflavored! Well wtf is it! It’s unflavored these taste like shit! Like an unflavored dog food biscuit! And they are extremely dry! Thank God they offered the trial size! I almost bought the full-size one! Btw the giant bottle pictured above is tiny! It’s this big!

The Puffs aren’t Puffs at all! They are like fish food pellets! And the fish food probably tastes better!

These absolutely lose! However; since they claim to be grass fed protein, they are definitely ahead of the chemical Puffs!!

1. ISO Poofs! That actually taste like apple cinnamon!

2. Promix no taste pellets! I refuse to call them Puffs!

3. Twin Peaks chemical Puffs!

Number 3 is in the garbage and Number 2 is sure to follow!


Supplement Review: Battle of the Protein Poofs! MPA ISO Poofs

MPA Iso Poofs is the perfect snack or cereal for anyone who enjoys satisfying a sweet craving without sabotaging their dieting efforts. In fact, you can conveniently incorporate MPA Iso Poofs into your nutrition plan as it would be a sufficient animal protein or whey protein shake replacement.

I created MPA Iso Poofs to be as low in dietary fat and carbohydrates as possible. I wanted to create something that would be interchangeable with your standard whey protein shakes that people use in diet plans regularly.

Let’s face it, strict dieting to get into amazing shape takes strong discipline, rigid dieting practices, and the mental toughness to endure oftentimes a bland and monotonous nutrition protocol. MPA Iso Poofs allows you to keep to your high protein, low fat, and low carbohydrate program perfectly while enjoying something that satisfies your “sweet tooth” or sugar-filled craving!

MPA Iso Poofs can be enjoyed as a delicious cereal, accompanied with your choice of fat-free milk, or your preferred milk replacement i.e., (Almond, coconut, cashew milk etc…). You could also use pasteurized liquid egg whites as a “milk substitute” as well.

MPA Iso Poofs can also be enjoyed simply as a snack, eaten dry like you would a bowl of popcorn or any “finger food” snack.

Finally you can truly enjoy and consume something sweet, delicious, yet nutritious every day on your strict diet plan without sabotaging your progress. Don’t be fooled by other supposed “diet friendly” food/snack products, such as chips, popcorn, bars, etc… Read their nutrition facts and while one might be “low in carbs” — it will be higher in dietary fat, and contain more oils than you should feel comfortable dieting with.

I am very particular and picky with my own nutritional needs and MPA Iso Poofs get’s the MPA stamp of approval — so you can feel confident enjoying them on your own diet.

Features & details

  • Less Than 1g of Sugar Per Serving
  • Less Than 1g of Fat Per Serving
  • 19g of Protein Per Serving
  • High Protein Cereal or Dry Snack

-MPA

The product although in a cardboard box comes in a giant ziplock bag.

ISO poofs!! Now this is the real deal!!! No chemical smell and it tastes like apple cinnamon! It also really has a cereal taste!

The calories are low and the macros are nice!

wow these taste great! They come in apple cinnamon and French toast! I want both! I want to add these as a tool to my summer cut!

Be happy losing weight! If you are miserable you might not succeed!

These make me happy!

hands down these win the battle of the poofs!

So far! We have one more entry!

-twin peaks ingredients

I got these poofs because I am doing a keto diet and I wanted a low carb snack that’s not a: protein shake, nuts, beef jerky, or nut butter

The product definitely intrigued me!

But what I got was disappointing!

When I opened the bottle and took off the safety seal I took a big whiff and all I smelled is chemicals! And not surprisingly, I tasted not much of anything except chemicals and chalk!

Two huge thumbs down! However, they do have a ton of flavors! Maybe, this flavor just sucks! Bad!

I may try a different flavor, but for the price it’s is super unlikely!


Supplement Review: Betancourt BCAAs

Product Label

BCAA featuring Active TR™ Delayed Release Leucine

  • 4,000mg of Leucine Per Serving
  • Highly Water Soluble BCAA’s
  • Features Sustamine®

Active TR™ Leucine

Delivers the most anabolic essential amino acid to the body over time to prolong the signaling of protein synthesis.

Instantized BCAA’s

This is for anyone that is tired of a shaker cup full of foam every time they mix their BCAAʼs. However the importance of water soluble amino acids extends beyond that. Contained within that bothersome foam is the majority of your Leucine, the most important of the BCAAʼs for anabolic signaling. If you donʼt consume the foam, youʼre simply wasting your hard earned money. What good is a high Leucine BCAA product if you do not consume adequate quantities of Leucine?

There’s not much to say about these BCAAS

4:1:1 ratio – the biggest thing here is a 2:1:1 ratio is considered optimal and anything more than 2:1:1 is a marketing ploy and wasting product. More is not always best.

The initial taste was good, but it has a little aftertaste. I’m not a fan.

I did not spoil after a few days in the jug. Which is good to know if you can’t finish it the same day.

Buying this is a matter of preference, try it and see if you like it or look for a product that has a 2:1:1 ratio.

LOSE WEIGHT

LOWER BODY FAT

BUILD LEAN MUSCLE

TRIMFIT is a category-creating functional beverage containing a proprietary active ingredient that is patented and clinically proven to safely help people lose weight and lower body fat while building lean muscle. While diet colas and other zero calorie flavored waters are targeting those who are simply looking to avoid extra calories and weight gain, TrimFit is the only beverage that helps people lose weight. With the obesity epidemic affecting millions of Americans, the need for a true functional weight loss beverage couldn’t be greater.

TrimFit is the only bevereage in the world containing the patented ingredient Trisynex. TrimFit’s formulation is:

ALL NATURAL

Trisynex naturally adjusts your “fuel gauge” hormone leptin and a “fat-burning” hormone called adiponectin. These two harmones elevate your fat-burning potential so you stay satisfied (less hungry), lose body fat, and build lean muscle. While results may vary, TrimFit, with a balanced diet and exercise program can help you achieve and maintain healthy weight levels and a toned body shape.

This has a promising ingredient profile! That was the first thing that caught my eye! 

  

That label above is not what is on my water! Did they improve the ingredients? 

  
On the one bottle it says vegetable and fruit juice for color and on this one they add a bunch of vegetables and fruits. Yet it is still less than 1% 

This is what I hate to say: exactly what Michelle Obama is talking about! The 1st label is accurate! Fruit juice for color. Less than 1% means it will give you no benefits! 

However the new label lists them all out as they are in there and tricking you to believe they are benefiting you! 

You look at the label and say: Wow a sports water with spinach, carrot, beet, shiitake mushroom! Nice! But then if you pay attention (key word if) you see it is less than 1%! 

Not cool! But does the Trisynex really work? Stay tuned! 

I actually didn’t see the Erythritol when I first looked at the label! But I certainly tasted it! Yuk! 

**Update** April 4th 2016

Check this coolness out! I was having trouble finding the product. The gas station I typically get it at $2/bottle is out of stock. I wrote the company and they wrote back: you can save money and buy on Groupon. The offer was removed from Groupon and I wrote back telling them that. What happened next? The CEO called me directly telling me he will honor the price and Mailout the cases and I can send in a check after I receive them. How cool is that?? That’s awesome! 

**Update** April 28th 2016

I see a big difference in belly fat! I have gone through 3 cases of 12 and I have been having 2 drinks a day. 1 at 6am on an empty stomach and one at 430pm with a meal. 

I have been doing a low carb meal for 3 weeks and 1hr of cardio a day, but my weight hasn’t moved much. I am still 287-288. My arms are massive right now (on a low carb diet that is awesome) usually I’m flat after a while. 

**Update** May 5th 2016

I have now finished 4 cases 2 drinks a day! I had a carbohydrate refeed day and any weight lost is now back and my stomach is puffy. That tells me the loss was only water weight and the product doesn’t work to reduce fat! I am seriously disappointed! I am going to have to call this myth busted! (I miss myth busters)! 


Supplement Review: Black Seed oil (cold pressed)

 

Black Seed – ‘The Remedy For Everything But Death’

Benefits of Black Seed

The seeds of the annual flowering plant, Nigella Sativa, have been prized for their healing properties since time immemorial. While frequently referred to among English-speaking cultures as Roman coriander, black sesame, black cumin, black caraway and onion seed, it is known today primarily as black seed, which is at the very least an accurate description of its physical appearance. The earliest record of its cultivation and use come from ancient Egypt. 

Black seed oil, in fact, was found in Egyptian pharoah Tutankhamun’s tomb, dating back to approximately 3,300 years ago.[i] In Arabic cultures, black cumin is known as Habbatul barakah, meaning the “seed of blessing.” It is also believed that the Islamic prophet Mohammed said of it that it is “a remedy for everything except death”

Many of black cumin’s traditionally ascribed health benefits have been thoroughly confirmed in the biomedical literature. In fact, since 1964, there have been 656 published, peer-reviewed studies referencing it.
We have indexed salient research, available to view on GreenMedInfo.com on our Black Seed (Nigella Sativa) page, on well over 40 health conditions that may be benefited from the use of the herb, including over 20 distinct pharmacological actions it expresses, such as:
Analgesic (Pain-Killing)

Anti-Bacterial

Anti-Inflammatory

Anti-Ulcer

Anti-Cholinergic

Anti-Fungal

Ant-Hypertensive

Antioxidant

Antispasmodic

Antiviral

Bronchodilator

Gluconeogenesis Inhibitor (Anti-Diabetic)

Hepatoprotective (Liver Protecting)

Hypotensive

Insulin Sensitizing

Interferon Inducer

Leukotriene Antagonist

Renoprotective (Kidney Protecting)

Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha Inhibitor

These 30 pharmacological actions are only a subset of a far wider number of beneficial properties intrinsic to the black seed. While it is remarkable that this seed has the ability to positively modulate so many different biological pathways, this is actually a rather common occurrence among traditional plant medicines.

Natural RX: Greenmedinfo
Our project has identified over 1600 natural compounds with a wide range of health benefits, and we are only in our first 5 years of casual indexing. There are tens of thousands of other substances that have already been researched, with hundreds of thousands of studies supporting their medicinal value (MEDLINE, whence our study abstracts come, has over 600,000 studies classified as related to Complementary and Alternative Medicine).
Take turmeric, for example. We have identified research indicating its value in over 600 health conditions, while also expressing over 160 different potentially beneficial pharmacological actions. You can view the quick summary of over 1500 studies we have summarized on our Turmeric Research page, which includes an explorative video on turmeric. Professional database members are further empowered to manipulate the results according to their search criteria, i.e. pull up and print to PDF the 61 studies on turmeric and breast cancer. This, of course, should help folks realize how voluminous the supportive literature indicating the medicinal value of natural substances, such as turmeric and black seed, really is.

Black seed has been researched for very specific health conditions. Some of the most compelling applications include:
Type 2 Diabetes: Two grams of black seed a day resulted in reduced fasting glucose, decreased insulin resistance, increased beta-cell function, and reduced glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) in human subjects.[ii]

Helicobacter Pylori Infection: Black seeds possess clinically useful anti-H. pylori activity, comparable to triple eradication therapy.[iii]

Epilepsy: Black seeds were traditionally known to have anticonvulsive properties. A 2007 study with epileptic children, whose condition was refractory to conventional drug treatment, found that a water extract significantly reduced seizure activity.[iv]

High Blood pressure: The daily use of 100 and 200 mg of black seed extract, twice daily, for 2 months, was found to have a blood pressure-lowering effect in patients with mild hypertension.[v]

Asthma: Thymoquinone, one of the main active constituents within Nigella sativa (black cumin), is superior to the drug fluticasone in an animal model of asthma.[vi] Another study, this time in human subjects, found that boiled water extracts of black seed have relatively potent anti-asthmatic effect on asthmatic airways.[vii]

Acute tonsillopharyngitis: characterized by tonsil or pharyngeal inflammation (i.e. sore throat), mostly viral in origin, black seed capsules (in combination with Phyllanthus niruri) have been found to significantly alleviate throat pain, and reduce the need for pain-killers, in human subjects.[viii]

Chemical Weapons Injury: A randomized, placebo-controlled human study of chemical weapons injured patients found that boiled water extracts of black seed reduced respiratory symptoms, chest wheezing, and pulmonary function test values, as well as reduced the need for drug treatment.[ix]

Colon Cancer: Cell studies have found that black seed extract compares favorably to the chemoagent 5-fluoruracil in the suppression of colon cancer growth, but with a far higher safety profile.[x] Animal research has found that black seed oil has significant inhibitory effects against colon cancer in rats, without observable side effects.[xi]

MRSA: Black seed has anti-bacterial activity against clinical isolates of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus.[xii]

Withdrawal: A study on 35 opiate addicts found black seed as an effective therapy in long-term treatment of opioid dependence.[xiii]

Sometimes the biblical reference to ‘faith the size of a mustard seed moving mountains’ comes to mind in connection with natural substances like black seeds. After all, do seeds not contain within them the very hope for continuance of the entire species that bore it? This super-saturated state of the seed, where life condenses itself down into an intensely miniaturized holographic fragment of itself, promising the formation of future worlds within itself, is the very emblem of life’s immense and immortal power. 
If we understand the true nature of the seed, how much life (past, present and future) is contained within it, it will not seem so far-fetched that it is capable of conquering antibiotic resistant bacteria, healing the body from chemical weapons poisoning, or stimulate the regeneration of dying insulin-producing beta cells in the diabetic, to name but only a fraction of black seed’s experimentally-confirmed powers.
black seeds
Moving the mountain of inertia and falsity associated with the conventional concept of disease, is a task well-suited for seeds and not chemicals. The greatest difference, of course, between a seed and a patented synthetic chemical (i.e. pharmaceutical drug), is that Nature (God) made the former, and men with profit-motives and a deranged understanding of the nature of the body made the latter.  
The time, no doubt, has come for food, seeds, herbs, plants, sunlight, air, clean water, and yes, love, to assume once again their central place in medicine, which is to say, the art and science of facilitating self-healing within the human body. Failing this, the conventional medical system will crumble under the growing weight of its own corruption, ineptitude, and iatrogenic suffering (and subsequent financial liability) it causes. To the degree that it reforms itself, utilizing non-patented and non-patentable natural compounds with actual healing properties, a brighter future awaits on the horizon. To the degree that it fails, folks will learn to take back control over their health themselves, which is why black seed, and other food-medicines, hold the key to self-empowerment.

16 More Reasons Black Seed Is ‘The Remedy For Everything But Death’ 
Here are 16 additional potential health benefits to add to the growing list:
Prevents Radiation Damage: Nigella sativa oil (NSO) and its active component, thymoquinone, protect brain tissue from radiation-induced nitrosative stress.[i]

Protects Against Damage from Heart Attack: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa has a protective effect against damage associated with experimental heart attack.[ii]

Prevents Morphine Dependence/Toxicity: An alcohol extract of nigella sativa reduces morphine-associated conditioned place preference, an indication of morphine intoxication, dependence and tolerance.[iii]

Prevents Kidney Damage Associated with Diabetes: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa has protective effects on experimental diabetic nephropathy.[iv]

Prevents Post-Surgical Adhesions: Covering peritoneal surfaces with Nigella sativa oil (NSO) after peritoneal trauma is effective in decreasing peritoneal adhesion formation in an experimental model.[v]

Prevents Alzheimer’s Associated Neurotoxicity: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa has protective effects on experimental diabetic prevents neurotoxicity and Aβ1-40-induced apoptosis in the cell model.[vi]

Suppresses Breast Cancer Growth: : A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa inhibits tumor growth and induces programmed cell death (apoptosis) in a breast cancer xenograft mouse model.[vii] [viii]

Exhibits Anti-Psoriasis Properties: The alcohol extract of nigella sativa seeds exhibit anti-psoriatic activity, consistent with its medicinal use in traditional medicine.[ix]

 Prevents Brain Pathology Associated with Parkinson’s Disease: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa protects cultured neurons against αSN-induced synaptic toxicity, a pathology observed in the brains of patients with Parkinson’s disease and dementia with Lewy bodies.[x]

 Kills Highly Aggressive Gliobastoma Brain Cancer Cells: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa exhibits glioblastoma cell killing activity. [xi]

 Kills Leukemia Cells: A thymoquinone from nigella sativa induces mitochondria-mediated apoptosis in acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in vitro.[xii]

 Suppresses Liver Cancer Growth: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa prevents chemically-induced cancer in a rat model.[xiii]

 Prevents Diabetic Pathologies: A water and alcohol extract of nigella sativa at low doses has a blood-sugar lowering effect and ameliorative effect on regeneration of pancreatic islets, indicating its value as a therapeutic agent in the management of diabetes mellitus.[xiv]

Suppresses Cervical Cancer Cell Growth: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa exhibits anti-proliferative, apoptotic and anti-invasive properties in a cervical cancer cell line.[xv]

 Prevents Lead-Induced Brain Damage: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa ameliorates lead-induced brain damage in Sprague Dawley rats.[xvi]

Kills Oral Cancer Cells: A thymoquinone extract from nigella sativa induces programmed cell death (apoptosis) in oral cancer cells.[xvii]

Why is such a powerful seed not yet on the radar of most medical and nutrition communities? We know sesame seed can beat Tylenol in reducing arthritis pain and can reduce cardiovascular disease risk factors in a manner that makes statin drugs envious, and we know flaxseeds shrink breast and prostate tumors, but black seed’s benefits are still largely under reported and underutilized.  

Interestingly, despite this blind spot, and as if to confirm black seed’s immense potential as a healing agent, Nestlé, the Switzerland-based global food giant, filed a patent on patent on the use of nigella sativa to “prevent food allergies” in 2010 (Nestlé’s international patent publication WO2010133574). This obvious attempt to appropriate traditional knowledge and use claimed the plant seed or extract should be Nestlé’s intellectual property when used as a food ingredient or drug. According to a Third World Network Briefing Paper from July, 2012:
“The Swiss giant’s claims appear invalid, as traditional uses of Nigella sativa clearly anticipate Nestlé’s patent application, and developing country scholarship has already validated these traditional uses and further described, in contemporary scientific terms, the very medicinal properties of black seed that Nestlé seeks to claim as its own “invention”.
“Nestlé claims any use of an opioid receptor-stimulating compound to treat or prevent allergies, specifically thymoquinone and, more specifically, administration of thymoquinone in the form of Nigella sativa plant material (seeds).3 The type of food allergy of greatest focus is upset stomach and diarrhea.”
The good news is that no such patent has yet to win approval, and for now, this food is still freely available. For additional research updates, simply go to Pubmed.gov, and sign up for an automatic email update for the keyword “nigella sativa,” and you’ll be one of the first to learn about the new research being done on this amazing seed as it comes directly through the biomedical research pipeline.

This stuff tastes straight up like oil! It is not pleasant! I suggest taking a chaser that can cut oil such as apple cider vinegar! I take a shot of fire cider, swish it in my mouth after and then swallow it and all is well! 

The benefits of using this before bed far outweigh the negatives! 

I am adding this in my daily regimen (when I remember to take it lol) 

First thing in the morning wheat grass shot followed by fire cider chaser 

Before bed black seed oil with fire cider chaser! 

Good luck and tell me how it works for you!

Theobromine:

In modern medicine, theobromine is used as a vasodilator (a blood vessel widener), a diuretic (urination aid), and heart stimulant.

Theobromine increases urine production. Because of this diuretic effect, and its ability to dilate blood vessels, theobromine has been used to treat high blood pressure. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition notes that historic use of theobromine as a treatment for other circulatory problems including arteriosclerosis, certain vascular diseases, angina pectoris, and hypertension should be considered in future studies.
Following its discovery in the late 19th century, theobromine was put to use by 1916, when it was recommended by the publication Principles of Medical Treatment as a treatment for edema (excessive liquid in parts of the body), syphilitic angina attacks, and degenerative angina.
In the human body, theobromine levels are halved between 6–10 hours after consumption.
Possible future uses of theobromine in such fields as cancer prevention have been patented.[25]

Theobromine also shows promise in tooth decay prevention and has been shown in some studies to surpass the more traditional fluoride. Advantages include the ability to safely ingest it, obviating the “do not swallow” warnings on fluoride mouthwash.

**Note** That would explain why I have peed at least 25 times today and counting! I thought it was because I have drank a lot of water and I have been working out, but it is definitely this! 

AMP Citrate:

An increase in energy (especially when combined with caffeine)

Heightened mental focus

Improved metabolism

Supplement Review: SARMs is it a miracle supplement for muscle growth and fat loss?

IMG_0464.PNG
SARMs-S1 BUILD MUSCLE-BURN FAT
S1 (MK 2866 or Ostarine) is another SARM that displays plenty of promise at promoting lean body mass. It is extremely potent, has a long half life, and displays no androgenic effects. This means it won’t cause any secondary “masculine” side-effects. S-1 is purely anabolic like Anavar, something I know women would love to hear especially if they are looking to build muscle without virilization (masculine side effects). It binds strongly to the androgen receptor, but without the side effects normally associated with high levels of testosterone or other compounds. It shows considerable properties as a muscle hardening agent just slightly less than those of S4. It’s ability to cause fat loss means it can be used on a cutting cycle and can be stacked effectively with fat burners.

S1 has displayed a real ability to help heal those with debilitating injuries and to speed up injury recovery. The beneficial effects on recovery make medical use highly appealing. An added benefit is you get the great recovery without all the negative changes to cholesterol, blood pressure, prostate, heart or any other organs the way anabolic steroids do. (per Elitefitness Forum)

Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (S.A.R.M) are becoming the supplement of choice for todays athletes…BUT REMAIN TOTALLY LEGAL.

(This info given to use from the guys at EliteFitness.com) Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (S.A.R.M), attach to the very same receptors that good old steroids like Dianabol and testosterone would attach to, but SARMs don’t have the disadvantages and side-effects of the old school anabolic hormones. As a matter of fact, while SARMs are anabolic and improve performance, they may not even qualify as hormones. They are a completely new compound that specifically target muscle building, strength and performance without causing any of the unwanted side effects of anabolic steroids… This is a new dawn in the evolution of muscle pharmacology, and I’m sure you will enjoy learning about how SARMS can increase muscle mass, while helping you to lose bodyfat and increase athletic performance beyond what we ever thought possible.

SARMs – Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators

Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (S.A.R.Ms) provide the positives of testosterone including and not limited to increased muscle mass, fat loss, and bone density. But they do not have the negative side effects of androgens which include prostate issues, hair loss, acne, and liver problems.

Your androgen receptors (AR) are the receptors that androgens such as testosterone and DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) bind to, and send a “signal” to activate once bound. The bounded androgen receptors combine with another androgen receptor to travel to the nucleus of an androgen cell where gene transcription of DNA to RNA takes place. This gene transcription is the process in which androgenic hormones exert their anabolic effects on muscle tissue. In contrast to androgenic steroids, SARMs have the ability to take the place of the androgen, and as a result, they bring forth many of the same positive effects on muscle tissue as anabolic steroids like testosterone and DHT. Being non-steroidal SARMs do not turn into unwanted estrogen or into side-inducing dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

Studies have shown the ability of SARMs to increase muscle and bone mass dramatically in animals while having no adverse impact on the prostate. Phase I trials of SARMs in humans have also reported significant increases in lean muscle mass.

Is it for real? Stay tuned!!

**Update** December 16th, 2014
The super supplement with no side effects has been found to have a deadly side effect and I have fell victim to it! For the past 2 months I have felt like shit and my cholesterol has jumped to 252! My blood pressure is also like 155/84 Do not use SARMs! If you do stop immediately! I would like to see a class action suit against them! My Testosterone has also dropped to the high 200’s and my muscle has dropped and my fat has raised! I have no desire to workout! This sucks! I have to see a specialist to correct this immediately! I normally have low cholesterol and blood pressure of 115/74 this sucks!

Fuck you very much SARMs!
