Very little really surprises me on the sports supplement market nowadays as I’ve honestly tried it all before and the fact that I rarely use any one product twice should tell you all you need to know. I admit I was initially drawn to Testo Extreme Anabolic by the unique approach it takes to muscular development and I thought it would be fun and interesting as I have not seen anything like this product before. I’m now on my third course using the Testo and Decacore Creatine combo and have consistantly seen improvements in my workouts and physique with each course! My advice? When you finally find something that works for you, stick with it!
Hi Ali: Regarding the mint studies…I just saw this on Suppversity…regarding the difference between mints effects on male and female rats…..Spearmint (M. spicata): At least in women spearmint tea has been shown to increase estrogen and luteinizing hormone in the follicular phase of their menstrual cycle (Aktodgan. 2007). In a 2004 study that was conducted on male rodents, on the other hand, the daily administration of peppermint tea (M. spicata) for a period of 30days lead to significant increases in luteinizing and follicle stimulating hormone and increases in serum testosterone, yet with the serious downside of “extensive degenerative changes in the germinal epithelium and spermatogenesis arrest compared with the findings in the testicular biopsies of the control group” (Aktogan. 2003) interesting for sure!
Octreotide is an analog of the peptide hormone somatostatin , which inhibits the production of the growth hormone as well as numerous peptide hormones of the gastrointestinal system, including insulin , glucagon , pancreatic polypeptide , gastric inhibitory polypeptide , and gastrin . Octreotide is used for suppression of the hormonal syndromes which accompany several pancreatic islet cell tumors , including the Zollinger-Ellison syndrome of gastrinoma and the chronic hypoglycemia of insulinoma . It is also effective in suppression of the carcinoid syndrome , caused by advanced or extra- gastrointestinal carcinoid tumors. Octreotide may also be used for treatment of severe diarrhea caused by 5-fluorouracil chemotherapy or radiation therapy .
