Growth Factor-1

Has anyone tried Growth Factor-1 or can point me to a website with reviews for it. Just doing my reasearch to see if it is worth trying. Thanks

I did some Googling and found:

An ad for it that says, “BUILD A FREAKY, PROFESSIONAL BODYBUILDER PHYSIQUE”

That alone would raise my red flag.

Anyway, looks like the main ingredient is Octocosanol, a naturally occurring substance found in sugar cane, wheat germ oil, spinach, and other natural sources.

One site said the octo stuff is used to “increase endurance, stamina & vigor.” Another said it can help lower cholesterol levels.

The Growth Factor stuff seems to be a UK supplement. I don’t know what they sell it for, but the herb places selling plain Octocosanol were selling it for as little as 8 dollars.

Looks like a fucking ripoff as a bodybuilding supplement. I’d avoid it.

will do thanks, i was a little suprised about how little i could find out about it.
