Richard: Here is what I’ve noticed taking Tribex-500 in reference to your queries: It most certainly helps in the weight, as far as strength, sustained power output, and energy goes. I’ve put a lot of mass on in the last few months thanks to taking Tribex (and some methoxy 7 and ZMA). It also increases my libido substantially, and I’ve noticed the following where that is concerned. Firmer erections (not that I’ve had a problem with that at 22, but still, I noticed), and definetly a higher volume of ejaculate. For my money, there isn’t a better supplement being made right now than Tribex-500. I work at a MuscleMag store, and could find about 25 others to back me up on this immediately, and countless others in this forum.
As far as Andro's go, yes EAS Andro-6 was and is (do they still make it?) complete crap. But you should give Biotest's Androsol a shot while it is still being produced, as I've heard nothing but fantastic results from it (yet to try it myself).
I have also heard the rumours of EAS diminishing quality control, and the store I work at actually stopped carrying EAS because of this.
Hope I helped.
