    Metformin

    Obviously not an aas, but didn't know where else to post this - what are your experiences using metformin? I'm looking into using it to help me on my cut.

    Tbh I haven't really noticed to much, maybe fuller muscles but could just be the gear. I take 500mg with my carb heavy meals post workout meals. It keeps my a1c low I do kno that.

    Works well for people that can tolerate it and fully understand what it does. 500mg - 2,000mg are taken depending on individual. Most individuals are using it during their low carb or keto diet trying to go sub 5-6% ! Other just use it because they are pre diabetic and eat bad, some know how to truly make it work for them while using HIIT /Intermittent fasting. I recommend searching : <metformin and intermittent fasting bodybuilding >

    Read up! Stuff can cause major GI issues but it usually goes away. They also have a ER version that releases slowly over time. It is part of a lot of longevity programs along with NAD, NMN, Resveratrol. I also like the book: Lifespan by David Sinclair. I do not agree with all of the above uses but; it is something to read about....especially if it can help fight obesity or help someone’s health. Just a POV

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I usually crash really hard after big carb meals and my most recent fasted bloods shoes my fasted glucose was 109 (reference range 65-99). I followed up with some research on various forums and there’s anecdotal reports of it helping improve diet results etc and seems to be a very safe compound but I def don’t want to deal w the diarrhea and GI issues that seem to come with it. Good thing is it seems me can stairstep the dose to get your body used to it.

    Metformin is good for those who can tolerate it. For me it had the opposite effect than most people. I got constipation, cramping and heartburn. Switched to 500mg of berberine and dropped fasting glucose from 105 to 88.

    Start low low even at 250mg break the tablets in half to build up a tolerance. Once you build up a tolerance after 4-5 day’s move to 500mg and you’ll notice you can handle it much better then when you starte. Like Max said you have to know how to work metfo. If you start at 1000 you’ll make yourself sick for-sure.
