I wanted to ask anybody who has used Spike something, but first- As per the labeling, I know it is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease-
I have noticed a serious reduction in cold symptoms while taking Spike. This is completely subjective and anectdotal, but heres what I have noticed this past week.
Over the weekend a cold set in. By monday morning it was fully developed. All of the usual stuff- sinus and chest congestion, watery burning eyes, the whole shebang. I don't take ephedra based cold medicine because the sides are worse than the symptoms. I started to consider that deadlift day, or this whole week for that matter would be scratched. Monday afternoon my lifting partner calls to confirm, and I give him a tentative Yes, but with the possability of a no because I fel like shit. Four o'clock rolls around and it's time to get ready, so I fugure I'll gut it out. I pop a Spike and start gettin my shit together.
Within the hour sinuses cleared and my chest loosened up a good bit. I started feeling prety damned good. Warmup went realy well, and the first set just about flew off of the floor. The rest of the session went just as well. For a day that started off as a scratch, I was surprised as hell that deads day went as good as any other, if not a little better. Bench day on wednesday was also very good.
Over all,I've noticed that the symptoms of the cold I've had have been greatly reduced. Little or no sinus congestion, expectoration has been largely un-necessarry, and easier when it is, and energy levels have been high. Definitely much higher than previous years with a cold/congestion.
Has anybody else noticed or experienced this too? I know that the formula is currently patent pending and the tight lips about the formula are definitely warranted, but how are these secondary effects possable?
I look forward to hearing from others who may have experienced the same. Thanks.
