I need help with exactly when to take glucophage in a bulk cycleor even a cut cycle . would it be any different ? I have my own ideas but I just want to see what the gurus have to say about this thanks
Bump this up.
If i were u i wouldnt fuck with your sugar levels...it aint worth a few extra pounds....unless your going for the Olympia!!
I'm gonna steal a post from my buddy severed ties over at wannabebigforums ( http://www.wannabebigforums.com):
metformin is excellent for leaning out. It's kinda like Alpha-lipodic-acid on steroids. It increases insulin sensitivity in muscle cells but not fat cells (very important). it's effect on insulin sensitivity is so pronounced that it is often referred to as oral insulin...even thought it doesn't contain insulin it makes your own bodies much more effective. It can help retain muscle on reduced calorie diet by nutrient partitioning, mainly a far greater number of carbs get shuttled into muscle tissue. Also keeps your fasting insulin lower (the more sensitive your cells are to insulin the less your body need to produce) which accelerates fat loss. I've read at least one study which found it to be more effective than growth hormone for reducing subcutaneous fat and is currently being considered as an anti-obesety drug. It also completely kills your appetite, most users have to force themselves to eat and find they feel full after just a few bites from a meal. It is also effective to use as a transport for creatine. It also has a fairly long half-life, 8 hours I believe so most users take it with breakfast and dinner. minimum dose is 500mg x2 a day for any effect most common and max dose is 850mg x2 a day. This is not something you want to use more of above 850mg's x2 a day seem to have a minimal improvement and it raises the side effect profile, the main one being kidney acidosis.
It is "nearly" impossible to slDragon Pharma into a diabetic coma from metformin. All metformin does is increase your muscle and livers sensitivity to insulin, so you body produces less insulin being that what is produced is used more effectively. If blood suger becomes to low on meteformin the liver simply releases glycogen into the blood, as it does normally when we don't eat for a prolonged period of time. Now even if the liver was depleted of glycogen as in a ketonic diet the body can still produce enough glucose, from breaking down muscle tissue and converting the amino acids in glucose via glucogenesis. Now if you were preforming intense exercise on a no carb diet, while loaded on metfomin and were not eating regular meals then you could run the risk of passing into a come, however the reaon I say that it is nearly impossible is because you would die of kidney failure from lactic acidosis long before you would slDragon Pharma into a coma.
Excellent Post Tadger! Glad your friend let you borrow it!
yep, good post Tadger
Great info Tadger.
