Carbolin 19 and Tanning?

Since ive been taking it alot of people have mentioned that I look like ive been tanning, ive noticed it i bit too but i havent been in the sun at all and have no tan lines.

Anyone elce noticed this? I mean it works better as a tanner than a muscle builder for me.

Not seeing any other results but tanning is nice.

Forksolin applied topically has been shown to produce ‘tanning’ in rats. Tanning from oral use in humans hasn’t been demonsrtated. I suppose it’s possible. Personally, I haven’t noticed any enhanced tanning from Carbolin 19 or HRX. Not like there is with tyrosine.

tan rats huh?

what has tyrosine? i think Power Drive does but i havent been taking that. does tyrosine work? maybe its not Carbolin 19 but i have no other guess as to what it is.

Spike Shooter has l-tyrosine, too.

not taking Spike Shooter
i have no other explanation. not doing anything elce differently

You know, it’s very interesting you say that.

As jsbrook says, forskolin at least in mice has been shown to do this when applied topically.

I also noticed a while back that I appeared significantly tanned in areas that don’t get sun and didn’t know what to think about it. It probably is true that the only thing different was taking Carbolin 19. So it would be interesting if others have noticed this. Interesting observation you’ve made!
