I thought of posting this question here since, the posters here would have a lot more knowledge about such stuff than others. Anyway, down to business:
Some of the Biotest Supplements come in a capsules with a base of "lauroyl macrogol-32 glycerides". This apparently allows for transdermal application which may/may-not allow greater absorption. There has been some discussion about this application for Rez-V, and I was wondering if it extended to other products as well. The products are:
If you search you can find a thread about HRX. I've tried it a couple of times. I can't say too much about the effectiveness. If I recall correctly, I didn't feel quite as energetic when I rubbed it in.
This seems to be a good starting point. "the regional variation in the permeability of human skin increases in the general order of; Plantar Foot Arch Lateral Ankle Palm Ventral Forearm Dorsal Forearm Back Chest Thigh Abdomen Forehead Jaw Angle Scrotum" Taken from "Transdermal and topical drug delivery systems" By Tapash K. Ghosh, William R. Pfister, Su Il Yum.
They also say that the areas on the trunk and thigh are used most often because it's easier to rotate application site. Though, I don't think it would be a concern in this case since the application would not be damaging the skin like DMSO creams.
man this thread really has my curiosity going. i do remember reading the article on MAG-10 transdermal application like 2 or 3 years ago, but i guess i pretty much disregarded it soon after reading. i too get terrible heart burn and a burn in my throat from HRX, plus if i take too many too closely together, it would induce a panic attack on me due to my anxiety.
if rubbing it in the skin even somewhat lowered these side effects, i would be sold again on it and give it another try! i really hope the experts pop in on this and give some feedback
I had been following that protocol for about 10 days, but I upped it today to 2 pills 2x/day topically. I plan to continue with that until the bottle is empty - 3 more weeks-ish.
Two pills taken orally is normally too strong for me, so I do 1 HRX and 500mg green tea extract. Two pills topically was more tolerable, and I didn't have any issues with heart burn/indigestion, though I normally don't as long as I take them with food.
The second application today was about 10 minutes before I went to the gym, and that wasn't sufficient time for it to be absorbed through the skin as some of it ended up in my shirt with my sweat. Next time I will apply it earlier.
