Better Than Steroids?????

Anybod hear of Endothil-CR because i hear that this is better than steroids but dont know if its true. Does anybody know anything about this and if its true or not.

Well, it certainly sounds too good to be true.

Also, the ingredients don’t look all that exciting either…

Riboflavin 6.8g 400%
Proprietary Blend 9mg
-Green Tomato SE
-Grape Seed SE
-Grean Tea SE
-Quercetin
-Rutin

Only 9mg?

there’s nothing better than steroids (after deit, training and nutrition)…that’s why people use them.

however, i have never used Endothil, but it looks shady to me…

Okay, I’m not laughing at you, but I’ve never laughed so hard in my life!

Here are the ingredients:

Riboflavin 6.8mg 400%
Proprietary Blend 9mg
-Green Tomato SE
-Grape Seed SE
-Grean Tea SE
-Quercetin
-Rutin

That’s Vitamin B2 and a handful of antioxidants.

While it may help with free radicals, it’s no tren.

Here’s the greatest part from the product overview:

[i]So, What’s the Catch?

To experience the full benefits of Endothil-CR you’ll have to completely alter your workout routine. You can no longer do generalized, full-body workouts… you’ll have to focus on a single, specific muscle group and exercise that muscle group to exhaustion. [/i]

You still want to pay 53 bucks for it?

Ah, mister quick-fingers beat me to it!

But yeah, 9mg? WTF!

This is why the supplement industry gets a bad rap.

Dude, it’s all in the riboflavin

Riboflavin is just one of the B vitamins. If this causes muscle growth why hasn’t it already caused it in people who have been taking B complex?

I used endothil for a month and was not at all impressed nor did I recover any faster after training. It tastes weird too.

Funny this thread gets comes up, someone at my gym the other day was asking for information on this. I too had the same reaction as the others once I saw the ingredients. There’s nothing inherently wrong with the ingredients, but it is WAY overpriced and I seriously doubt if it really does anything.

eh…waste of money it looks like…take BCAA’s…will do the body good =P

Why not just have a V8.

Because the price of gas has gone up to $3 a gallon.
Oh wait…are we talking about
the same V8 here???
