Expired June of 2016, was wondering if that's a big deal with Niacin.  It's somewhat expensive.

Thanks!

Too lazy to juice, looking for a good greens NO powder.  Was wondering if this was a good product?  What are you guys using?

No worries Peak, you're allowed a mistake now and then. Thanks Cataceous, I'll check it out.

Just reading about it on the home page.  Searching the internet the only thing I can find is a different sup called GPLC.

Just wondering if anyone has found some data or thoughts on this?  The pine bark extract is so much cheaper and I believe it's from China, and not France.

Hey guys when I had my labs done a couple months ago the Dr prescribed an AI because of slightly elevated E2. A lot of people thought maybe I didn't need an AI for only slightly being out of range.  Plus I didn't have any symptoms. I don't know if the AI is responsible for my increase in testosterone, but it is up significantly.  See numbers below.


PREVIOUS LAB BEFORE AI

T=756...................348-1197
Free T=26.7..........7.2-24
Estrodial=38.1......8-35

LATEST LAB AFTER ADDING AI

Testosterone, Serum 928ng/dL 348 - 1197

Free Testosterone(Direct) 29.7 Highpg/mL 7.2 - 24.0

Estradiol, Sensitive 32.6
pg/mL 8.0 - 35.0

If you are injecting, an AI will have minimal effect on total testosterone.

It is more likely lab variability or based on how long after your injection undid the blood draw.

Have you been exercising more recently by any chance?

Hey Peak,

Well I do labs at the same time every time so I don't that's it. I have been exercising more and lifting four days a week.

Wonder why the bump in T then?

I would be surprised if most people did not experience about a 20% variation in their T levels on the same days every week just do to differences in IM absorption and metabolization rates.     For example, one might be on 100 mg a week and one week 4 days after injection their total T will be 800 ng/dl.    A week later on the same day they might be at 685 ng/dl, and then the week after that 770 ng/dl.

Okay, it's probably normal then.  I thought the AI did it at first because that was my only change.

If I did the calculation right, a reduction of 5.5 pg/mL in estradiol would raise testosterone by less than 1 ng/dL.

Wonder why the bump in T then?

I was taking 2 500mg twice daily of the 24hr time release. Once again I'm not real knowledgeable on this vitamin. Was wondering what you guys thought?

What do you guys think about these labs?  Done in March by my PCP with my current protocol about three weeks in.  Guess my Free T is high.  I sent these to my HRT Dr at the time, but he didn't seem too interested and said the labs they do are much better.


TESTOSTERONE, TOTAL 766 ng/dL 129 - 767 ng/dL 
SEX HORMONE BINDING GLOB 23 nmol/L 10 - 57 nmol/L 
TESTOSTERONE, FREE CALCULATED 208 pg/mL 20 - 135 pg/mL H
TESTOSTERONE, FREE PERCENT 2.7 % 1.5 - 3.2 %
