Gyno from Halodrol Liquigel

I need help.

As we know, Gaspari pays its reps to fill different forums (like bodybuilding.com) with “good” reviews of their product. This convinces many newbies, and i was one. Looking for a was to improve muscle growth along with definition (more definition that growth), i decided to try Halodrol liquigels.

I was coming out of a fat loss cycle at the end of the summer and beginning of the fall semester (university), when i started taking halodrol. I started using 3 gelcaps. The first 2 or 3 days what i got from it was fantastic, really notorious by everybody around me.

After the 4th day, the gains decreased, and i started to get puffy appearance. I called Gaspari, and as i weight 196 lbs a rep told me to take just 2 gelcaps. I called since i’m a student and the lethargy and sleepiness i was getting was unbearable. Also, one of my knees started to make a sound when going up the stairs (i live in the 3rd level).

I still was having a clean diet, and making cardio for 45 minutes every day, and even though i was getting puffier appearance… what the heck??

I decided to stop that crap. Then i noticed that one side of my chest has some little lumps in the lower area. The other side also had that but less. The nipples, specially the left, was puffy, and was getting clearer in color (normally it was dark brown, it was getting light brown!).

Since i got the Novedex xt with the halodrol, after stopping hlg, i started to use Novedex fearing it was gyno.

Today i’ve been taking Novedex xt for 5 or 6 days maybe, and the puffiness or the lumps in the chest have NOT disappeared. Yesterday i decided to re-start taking Halodrol 1 per day (since it has 6 oxo), and before bed 2 Novedex xt caps, but the symptoms of what i believe is gyno do not cede yet.

Can anyone tell me in how long, using Novedex xt, it will disappear?
What mistake may i have done while using hlg to get this not-wanted result? Since many people say they have got good result (that’s why i think those users saying good result from it are Gaspari’s reps fake users).
Should i continue using the halodrol crap along with Novedex xt?
Is it normal to get this result from Halodrol?
Is there a more effective way to get rid forever of (what i think is) gyno? (i’ve been having that for a couple of days, maybe 4 or 5.

And finally, What you guys recommend me to get a drier, bigger physique, with a non anabolic supplement (or at least, with the minimum side effects, or none if possible).

Thanks in advance!!!

The main ingredient in Halodrol liquigels is Arachidonic acid.

It did not give you gyno. Maybe check your diet? Where exactly are these lumps? Idk wtf your talking about your nipple changin colors.

The novedex xt has ATD in it which is ‘supposedly’ the strongest aromatase inhibitor thats sold OTC.

Thanks for sharing your results tho, I’ll make sure to stay away from that. lol

Good luck

why dont you stop all supplements and just eat food for a few days if your body is having some type of reaction?
use SOME LOGIC!

I’m curious as well. The Original Halodrols were actually some sort of prohormone, but since the FDA started cracking the whip, any Halodrols out now (the ‘new’ halodrols -lol) are nothing more than an anti-estrogen and omega 6 (arachidonic acid). While the Arach Acid will promote more of an inflamation response within the trained muscles, I find it difficult to believe that you saw any results within 3 days of taking them.

I’m wondering how much of your ‘gyno’ is just the results of eating a little more ‘normal’ after a fat loss diet. Actually, a lot of fat guys have some degree of gyno and never notice it until their bodyfat levels get really low. Hell, a lot of non fat guys have small gyno but never get lean enough to see the actual gland that exists by your nipples.

Not to bash supplements, because I truly believe there are some good ones out there, but at your age (which I’m approximating because you’re in college), you may be better served sticking to food, and basic supps like protein powder and fish oils.

Well, i’m 30. When i finish the fat loss cycle, i was really lean, 6 pack almost visible. I didn’t have anything like gyno or whatever. The lumps i mentioned were not visible, but when i touch the area below the nipple i could feel them.

I know the new halodrol are not prohormone, just arachidonic acid… that’s why i’m surprised of the result i got from them! :S

You know the human mind is powerful… i don’t know if i got so full of (fake) information on “good” reviews on this product, or what, but that made me saw good, but temporary, result in the second and 3rd day… then the horrible result showed up.

I stopped that crap. Even the Novedex xt! since it was just making things worse. Today is the second day without using any of them, and i can say that i don’t feel the inflammation sensation i was feeling in my left side of chest.

Thank God, i feel the lumps less, as if they were disappearing!

Also, i feel less bloated. It seems it was inflaming myself inside!

I read some studies which states that Arachidonic Acid promotes the development of tumors, hernias, cholesterol in blood, etc.

I don’t know if that was making it to me, but definetely Halodrol Liquigel is not for me… and i would not recommend this stuff to anyone.

Aah! the same day i started using hlg, i started using cre-alkalyne. Maybe the good result i saw was from this creatine… but i don’t know for sure.

Thank you guys for your replies.

maybe start with one supp then add more if you are ok with them. no more maybes. im thinking it was the novedex xt that was giving you the gyno. maybe.
