I'm pretty sure that's glycerol (glycerin), but don't take my word for it. But yeah, taking glycerol straight is not a fun experience. It's like drinking a metallic-tasting 100% melted sugar liquid. It may upset your stomach, but it may just be from the reaction of drinking it. I have no trouble drinking it with in a shake or something. It's also great for getting rid of that subcutaneous water.
It's tough to tell from the small picture. The company name sounds right from what I remember TC writing about it 10 years ago or so. I remember the stuff I found was for rubbing on the skin. I didn't really want to ingest that so I never played around with it.
I can't remember how much you are to take exactly, but I think it was somewhere around 50ml with 500ml of liquid. I can look it up when I get home if you're not sure.
I think I used 'NOW' Vegetable Glycerol from netirtion's website. It actually tasted kinda sweet, so taking a tbsp of it straight wasn't too bad. I was initially concerned because a lot of the ones you find say 'for topical application', so I wasn't sure if I should be ingesting it.
This is exactly it. I have been reading about Glycerin and thought I would try Massive G's pre/post workout shake and compare that to SWF and Sure Recovery.
If you would like the pre/post to take a look I can show you.
Again from what I've read is that pure Glycerin can be ingested and reading from the active ingredient at 99.5% I figured it would be ok to have. Nothing on the label says that I can't drink it and the only thing that it says is if accidental overdose contact poison control.
Again I've gone to three different forums with the same question (even IM) and I really can't get a definitive answer and the web just says that I can take Glycerin, however I can't find information on this type
