- One of the best GDA available!! Review by liquid
One of the best formulations in the market for glucose disposing agents (gda)
I have used other gda's such as Recompadrol, Slin Sane, and Slin. I am currently on my ninth bottle and purchased another one for just in case. This is how much I believe in this product. By comparison to others, Glycobol's formula is more well rounded, therefore, works better.
Generally it is suggested for using as cutting or a bulking phase to keep excessive fat gain. But generally I just use it not in a cut or a bulk phase, but to keep the fat gain from my general carb intake.
Recently I have come across an idea from a member in forum about combining a pre workout shake and a cap of Glycobol and the pumps were amazing, which is a plus.
There is a minor problem though, and that is the green/wet poops. I have found out that if you take it 15 minutes and then eat your meal, you can avoid that situation.
Best of luck if you decide to purchase Glycobol, I am sure you would love it. (Posted on 1/23/12)
- For me Glycobol was very effective in a sense that i held better full-ness throughout the day and allowed me to keep fat gain to a minimum even while at 4-5k calories! Review by TheTinyGuy
-Body Composition & Full-ness 10/10
From a few doses in i definitely noticed something different about how i looked and felt. The mirror showed less "bloat" which i find it a little hard to describe but all i can think of is possibly my super high carbs were being utilized for muscle glycogen because almost everyone who saw me at work told me i looked leaner and bigger which definitely boosted my confidence for the day. Also showed others that i wasn't just going crazy. The fact that i continue to get bigger and look leaner is a huge plus for me! I also noticed a tighter skinned feeling maybe associated with a slight pump at times throughout the day.
There is a big reason i'm giving this a 10 for pumps because when i trained with the mind numbing intensity i could produce i noticed gigantic, almost painful pumps that made me feel like a giant (with friends to back that up haha) I experienced some of the best calve pumps with glycobol which shocked me. Only thing that could have made it better would be me being leaner and seeing all the veins in my calves haha.
Didn't experience any fat gain in fact i noticed fat LOSS while on this product. It could have been due to my change in training but who knows.
My weight has dropped a few pounds due to me being sick but i look leaner and leaner it's awesome.

- Must have product ! Review by Mmacrazy
This stuff is beyond amazing. I did some reading on it and found a local vitamin store closing it out so I gave it a shot. Since then I have purchased 2 more bottles. This is a staple of mine when cutting because it allows me to eat some more carbs that usually don't agree with me to well.
2 pills and then a bowl of pasta and I'm feeling awesome !
Seriously try this. You will not be disappointed. (Posted on 1/6/12)
- Favorite GDA Review by AaronJP
Started using this off and on since Sept. 11 when I heard great results from it.
I dont expierence any upset stomach issues or any headaches or adverse effects.
I always remember to take this with my carb heavy meals: simple or complex.
What I have noticed is it gives me a nice full, swole feeling. :)
It also gives you a nice flexiable dosing pattern to use 1-4 caps per day with your meals.
It gives me lee-way with cheat meals and carbs. I prefer this to there GDA supplements I have used because I actually notice effects from it w/o crazy side effects. Its definetly worth the price & it doesnt dissapoint. (Posted on 1/4/12)
- Pumps and fat loss Review by Jumpshot903
I incorporated this product as part of my cutting regimine a couple months back, i love carbs so i wanted to keep as much of them in as possible and this really helped i managed to lose 8 pounds in 6 weeks while gaining 20lbs on squat and maintaining or increasing strength across the board.
The pumps are amazing with this, probally the best pump i've gotten out of a nutrient repartioner especially dosed pre-workout meal sometimes my skin felt like it was going to burst in the gym.
Very solid product by a very good company. (Posted on 1/4/12)
- I experienced a skin-tearing pump nearly EVERY workout with Glycobol! Review by KB
I was once a sufferer of "carbophobia"...for a long time! I was VERY eery about taking ~150g of carbs per day just in two of my meals, but Glycobol really delivers. I have not suffered from ANY bloat or nasty side effects. And, quite honestly, Glycobol has really helped to regulate my digestive system.
It is one of the best supplements I've ever taken. I soared through the holidays and my birthday without a nutritional care in the world, but only because Glycobol let me! I really felt more relaxed than ever because I knew the Glycobol was transforming my body in ways that I can't even explain. For the 30 days that I was privileged enough to take Glycobol, I ate at maintenance or a little above - so fat loss wasn't exactly my goal, however it still happened! I lost 2lbs in the 30 days which included 2 holidays and NYE! My waist measurement is down 2 inches and I gained inches in my biceps and back. I'm much more toned in my lower back and I even found these awesome muscles at the top of my legs haha. I know that when I cut, I'll have MUCH more definition and it's allll thanks to Glycobol.

- Nutrient shufflin Review by Buddy
- I like the swole feeling I get and the availabilty of nutrients to the muscles. I am using minimal carbs and weight is doing good. I could see how this product can give weight gains and loss...how ever you want to use it. Start off slow and work your way to full doses, if need be. (Posted on 11/4/11)
- Great for general fat loss as well as enhancing GH boosting! Review by JudoJosh
Growth Hormone is released from the pituitary in response to the GHRH (Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone) signal from the hypothalamus and insulin prevents this. On the other hand that GH released in response to low blood sugar is not controlled by GHRH, but by something else. (leptin, Ghrelin, or galanin) So while insulin does suppress Growth Hormone release (GHRH), hypoglycemia will stimulate a Ghrelin induced GH release. So when low blood sugar is induced by something other than insulin, in this case the NaR-ala in Glycobol I would suspect, it would give an even bigger spike than with insulin because there is no inhibitory effect. Deep sleep increases GH release, and low blood sugar compounds that release even more!!!
This is only a bonus plus to the intended "pump" and "nutrient partitioning" effect I feel while taking glycobol. This has easily become my FAVORITE AI supplement!!! (Posted on 10/6/11)
- Great insulin mimetic product Review by John Smeton
When insulin sensitively is dull in people , they gain more fat because insulin is being store as fat and not as glycogen, to a small degree in the liver and bigger degree in muscles. Glycogen has proven insulin mimetic ingredients show to be beneficial for type 2 diabetics like my favorite ingredient NA-R-ALA, which is 10 to 30 times more powerful than R-ala, which is powerful in and of itself.
After a bodybuilder get done working out and takes this it helps control his insulin/blood sugar and helps more carbohydrates get stored into the muscle for a fuller longer lasting look (and pump).
One logger VaughnTrue did the glucometer test and you can see his results here http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=116095151&p=326440333&viewfull=1#post326440333
if you did want to read that link , he has used real insulin , and from the glucometer compared two capsules of glyocol to about 10 ui's of insulin
"ok guys here are my blood results from today:
post pre-wo meal: 118
post workout(sipping on maximize): 115
20 minutes post Glycobol: 86
at the 30 minute mark I had already begun my MMA training class, and I swear I felt those damn shakes again. I took a few quick swigs of gatorade and felt better. I will get more precise numbers(30 minutes after glycobol instead of 20) next week. "
He used two in the morning and two post workout. I have used them this way and many other ways; however, I feel that glycobol is a very strong insulin mimetic product and I use two post workout. You could use substituted as real insulin but make sure you eat no fat or low fat with your meals for four hours after dosing. so generally next two meals after taking need to be low fat- that is one of the reasons I only take it pre workout. As a rule of thumb I say use insulin mimetics sparingly and you can also use them more if you really want to ramp up results and on a low fat as possible or close to it diet. (Posted on 9/28/11)
