"I was one of the testers for this product. Finally a fat burner that heats me up and kicks my workouts without ephedra. This is a smart formula and will be part of my pre-contest diet every time. One great supplement I would highly recommend" (Christian Chambers Top NPC Champion)

Thermokinetic is truely an amazing new Weight loss/Fat Burner/Energy product that feels like Ephedra and works like Ephedra.!

This product was designed to help you burn body fat at a much faster rate and dramatically increase your Energy Levels Fast! There are very few products that can Burn Fat and give you Energy like Thermokinetic can. Here is a list of the ingredients and what they each do.

Coleus Forskolii!-
Recent research has shown that the active ingredient in coleus is forskolin, which plays a major role in a variety of important cellular functions, including inhibiting histamine release, relaxing muscles, increasing thyroid function, and increasing fat-burning activity. In more technical terms, what happens is forskolin increases an enzyme called adenylate cyclase, which increases levels of another enzyme called cAMP (cyclic AMP), which is found in fat. cAMP then stimulates another enzyme, hormone sensitive lipase, to burn fat. Additionally, by a similar mechanism using cAMP, coleus increases thyroid hormone production and release, thereby increasing the body's metabolism, to burn more calories. Scientists have, in fact, studied the effects of coleus for over 15 years and have found an abundance of benefits, including body fat reduction and lean body mass enhancement.

Guggul Lipid Extract!- Studies show guggul may change thyroid hormone metabolism, increasing levels of circulating T3, or triiodothyroxine, a thyroxine metabolite known to raise overall metabolism. Theoretically at least, this should help the body burn significantly more fat. There is excellent research showing the benefits of guggul lipid for lowering the LDL “bad cholesterol” in humans.

Citrus Aurantium!- Citrus aurantium, commonly referred to as bitter orange, has been used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine to improve and maintain overall health. That is, until recently, when science discovered compounds (the most well-known being synephrine) from these little orange fruits demonstrated equally powerful thermogenic ("fat-burning") activity. In fact, synephrine is referred to as ephedra's "calmer chemical cousin" because it increases the body's metabolic rate or ability to burn calories, without producing negative side effects on the central nervous system and the cardiovascular system. The herb assists the breakdown of fat by causing the release of noradrenaline (a stress hormone). The release of noradrenaline at beta-3 receptor sites creates a chemical reaction that increases the breakdown of fat. Beta-3 receptors increase the rate at which fat is released from body stores (lipolysis) and increase resting metabolic rate, which burns calories! Since Citrus Aurantium only stimulates the beta-3 adrenergic receptor it is able to stimulate fat metabolism without the negative cardiovascular side effects experienced by some people using Ma Huang. Physical activity will increase the thermogenic effect and enhance the effect of Citrus Aurantium toward permanent healthy weight loss.

Guarana Extract!- Guarana has mild thermogenic effects, increases endurance and mental alertness as well as enhances memory and nervous system function, which would aid in increasing performance in aerobic and anaerobic activities. This is the most potent form of caffeine.

Ginger Root!- Ginger Root helps to improve circulation, aids in digestive problems, removes toxins and cleanses the bowels and kidneys. It is also helpful in treating fatigue and depression.

Cayenne!- Cayenne contains an ingredient called capsaicin that stimulates saliva, digestion and accelerates your metabolism. It also has mild appetite suppressing capabilities.

The above ingredients are what makes up this great new Fat Burner/ Energy Product called Thermokinetic .!

Folic Acid Reduces The Risk Of Alzheimer's

Consuming enough of the B vitamin folic acid significantly reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, according to a study appearing in the July issue of Alzheimer’s & Dementia:! The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association.

“This report bolsters evidence that adequate folic acid may help the brain, nervous system and heart and blood vessels in a variety of ways,” says William H. Thies, Ph.D., Alzheimer’s Association vice president, medical and scientific affairs. “Since 1998, breads, cereals and other grain products have been fortified with folic acid in the United States to reduce the likelihood of serious nervous system birth defects. It’s looking increasingly as if folic acid remains important for brain health throughout life.”

A good Folic Acid supplement by Good N Natural is a great source, here is the link:! FOLIC ACID CLICK HERE

This study, published in the inaugural issue of the Alzheimer’s Association official journal, found that older adults who consume at least the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of 400 micrograms of folic acid per day reduced their risk of Alzheimer’s by more than 50 percent. There was little added benefit from folic acid intake much above the RDA. Most study participants who met or exceeded the RDA did so use of foods and supplements. Foods rich in folic acid include fortified bread products, green leafy vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and peas and beans FOLIC ACID CLICK HERE

Researchers analyzed diet and supplement use for 579 participants in the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging,! a long-running federally funded investigation of the effects of growing older, and then followed them for an average of nine years to track incidence of Alzheimer’s disease.

Adequate folic acid has also been shown to lower the levels of the protein building block homocysteine. Elevated homocysteine is a risk factor for heart attacks and diseases of the blood vessels and possibly Alzheimer’s disease.

A June 2005 report at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference on Prevention of Dementia linked daily doses of 800 micrograms of folic acid (twice the RDA) to better performance on tests of memory, reaction time and thinking speed for older adults. That study was not designed to show whether folic acid had any benefit in preventing dementia.

There are many back pain relief products on the market but none of them have the fresh, scientifically-blended, complete effective formula of Back Relief Elite™ Premium Back Remedy. This stuff really works.

The Exclusive Blend Of Natural Ingredients Is What Makes Back Relief Elite™ So Good

Bromelain is the name of a group of powerful protein-digesting, or proteolytic, enzymes that are found in pineapple (Ananas comosus). Discovered in 1957, and widely studied since then, bromelain is particularly helpful for reducing muscle and tissue inflammation and a digestive aid. Supplements are made from enzymes found in the pineapple stem.

Bromelain is a natural blood thinner and anti-inflammatory. It works by breaking down fibrin, a blood-clotting protein that can slow down good circulation and prevent tissues from draining properly. Bromelain also blocks the production of compounds that cause swelling and pain. When inflammation is reduced, blood can move more easily to a traumatized area, easing pain and speeding healing.

GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is popularly referred to as the body's natural tranquilizer. It is an amino acid produced in the brain. It acts as a neurotransmitter--a chemical that fosters communication between nerve cells--and helps to keep stress-related nerve impulses at bay. This relieves the intensity of pain stemmed from arthritis.

GABA appears to promote relaxation and sleep. It may also have a role to play in preventing seizures and allaying chronic pain.

Glucosamine is a sugar produced in the body and found in small amounts of foods. It plays an important role in maintaining cartilage, the gel-like material that cushions joints. When taken as a dietary supplement, glucosamine may help to relieve the pain, stiffness, and swelling of osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disorder that affects 12% of the population, in which cartilage has worn down. Rheumatoid arthritis sufferers report improvements with glucosamine supplements as well, as do individuals with other types of joint injuries. Some 70 countries around the world sanction glucosamine as a treatment for individuals with mild to moderately severe osteoarthritis.

Studies indicate that some arthritis sufferers experience improved range of motion after taking glucosamine. Others report increased overall mobility. And several studies suggest that glucosamine may be as effective in easing arthritic pain and inflammation--and not nearly as irritating to the stomach--as the NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) typically recommended for osteoarthritis.

Glucosamine appears to protect and strengthen the cartilage around joints, particularly in the knees, hips, spine, and hands. In so doing, it may help to prevent further joint damage. And while it can do little to actually restore cartilage that has completely worn away--or reverse joint damage that has already occurred--glucosamine appears to slow the development of mild to moderately severe osteoarthritis. Traditional NSAIDs prescribed for arthritis, in contrast, actually impair the body's cartilage-building capacity.

Boswellia, also known as boswellin or "Indian frankincense," comes from the Boswellia serrata tree that grows in the dry hills of India. For centuries, traditional Indian healers have taken advantage of the anti-inflammatory properties of the tree bark's gummy resin, called salai guggal. Modern preparations made from a purified extract of this resin and packaged in pill or cream form are used to reduce inflammation associated with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Unlike conventional NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as ibuprofen--the accepted treatments for joint inflammation--boswellia doesn't seem to cause stomach irritation. It also may be effective for back pain and certain chronic intestinal disorders.

Boswellia can be taken internally as well as applied topically to affected joints to relieve inflammation associated with these joint disorders. This may lessen morning stiffness and increase joint mobility. In a study of 175 patients with rheumatic disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, a crippling joint disease, 122 participants experienced reduced stiffness and inflammation two to four weeks after starting on a boswellia regimen.

Devil's Claw is a plant found in the deserts of southern Africa. It is named Devil's Claw because of the distinctively shaped tips of its fruits. For years, people indigenous to the African continent dug up the plant's large tuberous roots, chopped them up, and let them dry in the sun. From the dried roots, they then prepared healing formulations to treat arthritis, fever, indigestion, and a number of other conditions.

It remains unclear just how devil's claw works to reduce inflammation and pain. The latest findings indicate that the plant does not exert anti-inflammatory effects in the same way that many standard anti-inflammatory medications do. Yet test-tube studies still point to slight painkilling and anti-inflammatory actions.

A handful of studies support the use of devil's claw for easing the inflammation and pain that often afflict people with arthritis. Mild pain relief and a lessening of inflammation was noted in a 1976 study that compared the devil's claw with the effects of a common arthritis drug (phenylbutazone).

Turmeric is best known as a spice that gives a distinctive flavor and yellow color to curry powder and mustard. It is a member of the ginger family and has long been used for healing. Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani, and other traditional medicine systems practiced in India have relied on this pungent spice for centuries.

The plant's healing properties reside in its fingerlike stalk, which is scalded and then dried for medicinal preparations. This is the same part of the plant used to flavor, color, and preserve foods.

The anti-inflammatory compounds in turmeric appear to ease inflammation. This makes it potentially useful for relieving the inflammation in wrist and hand joints associated with arthritis, for example. In India, curcumin-a component of turmeric- is considered a standard anti-inflammatory medication. It appears to be most effective for acute (as opposed to chronic) inflammation.

Ginger is revered around the world for its pungent taste. It is a natural spice that is also widely prized for its medicinal properties. Since ancient times, traditional healers in a diverse array of cultures have used this plant primarily to help settle upset stomachs. Chinese herbalists have relied on ginger as a medicine and flavoring for more than 2,500 years. The early Greeks mixed it into breads (hence the first gingerbread), and North American colonists sipped nausea-quelling ginger beer, the precursor of modern ginger ale. Today, many cultures continue to rely on ginger for controlling nausea and also for reducing inflammation.

Ginger helps indirectly to relieve chronic pain by reducing inflammation and, particularly when taken in standardized extract form, by lowering the body's level of natural pain-causing compounds called prostaglandins.

Rheumatoid arthritis symptoms may also respond to treatment with ginger, either in massage oil or standardized extract form. In a study of seven women with rheumatoid arthritis, reduced joint swelling and pain were reported following a daily regimen of up to 1 gram of powdered ginger or 5 to 50 grams of fresh ginger.

Yucca is also known by the names Spanish Bayonet, Guardian Of The Desert, Needle Palm, and Soapweed. Yucca, a member of the lily family, grows in abundance throughout the Southwestern United States and Mexico. The part of this plant used medicinally is the root. The name "Yucca" comes from the Caribbean name for "cassava", which was once considered part of this genus. Traditionally, this herb has been used for soap because of its foaming agents. Native Americans used the soapy leaves from yucca for numerous health conditions. Yucca is used today to treat inflammations caused by degenerative diseases like arthritis and rheumatism. The authors of a study looking at patients with osteoarthritis & rheumatoid arthritis speculate that Yucca saponins block the release of toxins from the intestines, which tends to inhibit normal formation of cartilage.

Boron is a mineral that aids in the production of natural steroid compounds within the body, which is necessary for healthy bones and muscle growth. It is also vital for the metabolism of calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium. This mineral is found naturally in apples, carrots, grapes, dark green leafy vegetables, raw nuts, pears, and whole grains.

Boron increases brain function, promotes alertness, and helps the body utilize energy from fats and sugars. Boron supplementation can help prevent postmenopausal osteoporosis and build muscle, and is a benefit for elderly people to aid in calcium absorption.

Vitamin D is called the sunlight vitamin because the body produces it when the sun's ultraviolet B (UVB) rays strike the skin. It is the only vitamin the body manufactures naturally and is technically considered a hormone.

Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium from food and supplements. If the body does not have an adequate amount of vitamin D, it will extract calcium from bones and cartilage which over time leads to osteoporosis.

Vitamin E is a powerful anti-oxidant that is summoned from the body's fatty tissue where it's stored. It protects cells by deactivating or destroying the potentially damaging oxygen molecules called free radicals.

As a key antioxidant, vitamin E appears to play a modest but notable role in protecting the body from many chronic disorders. It may even slow the aging process and guard against damage from secondhand smoke and other pollutants. Circulatory disorders, skin and joint problems, diabetes-related nerve complications, high cholesterol, endometriosis, immune-system function, and memory are also believed to benefit from vitamin E.

Ephedra Ban Lifted by U.S. District Judge

THURSDAY, April 14 (HealthDay News) -- Saying that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration had not met the burden of proof that any specific dosage of the controversial weight-loss drug ephedra was dangerous, a U.S. District Court judge in Salt Lake City has lifted the year-old FDA ban and sent the matter back to the agency for further evaluation.

A lawsuit against the ban, which the FDA initiated in February 2004, was brought by Nutraceutical Corp. and Solray Inc. of Park City, Utah, a nutritional supplement manufacturer. On Thursday, Judge Tena Campbell ruled that the FDA had not proved that its arbitrarily-set dosages of 10 milligrams (mg) or less of ephedrine-alkyloid dietary supplements (EDS) were dangerous.


In fact, Campbell said in her ruling that the FDA had rested its entire case on research offered by the agency and its advisory committee that could not determine what a safe level of an EDS would be.

"A negative inference is different from the affirmative proof required..." Campbell wrote in her opinion. "There is not sufficient evidence in the administrative record to establish that the risks identified by the FDA are associated with the intake of low dose EDS."

Late Thursday afternoon, FDA officials were evaluating whether the minimum 10 mg dose was sufficient to appeal Campbell's decision or whether more research was necessary.


"The FDA is evaluating the question of appeal," spokeswoman Kimberly Rawlings said. Rawlings said she expected a decision by early Friday.

The Associated Press quoted Nutraceutical president Bruce Hough as saying the decision is about "protecting the public's access to safe and effective dietary supplements."

The government's decision to ban ephedra came late in 2003. At a news conference, then-Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson said the government had enough evidence to confirm that ephedra caused heart attacks.

Thompson announced a "consumer alert" on the safety of products containing ephedra and said the agency had notified manufacturers of its intent to publish a final rule banning the sale of supplements containing the compound. The ban came after the government reviewed more than 16,000 reports of adverse events, Thompson said. The actual ban was issued in February 2004.

Ephedrine, the active ingredient, increases metabolic rate, heat production, and the risk of heatstroke. A group of San Francisco researchers had claimed that ephedra was the most dangerous herbal product on the market, based on data collected from poison control centers. Because ephedra is an herb, it was not subject to regulations governing pharmaceutical drugs and could be sold over-the-counter.

More than 155 deaths have been linked to ephedra, according to Public Citizen's Health Research Group in Washington, D.C., including the 2003 death of 23-year-old Baltimore Orioles pitcher Steve Bechler. Bechler's death resulted in a slew of negative publicity that, in turn, contributed to declining sales of ephedra products.

Metabolife International Inc., one of ephedra's largest manufacturers, said at the time it "respectfully" disagreed with the FDA's decision. And the company added that the FDA lacked data and information that would enable it to meet the burden of proving that ephedra products -- when taken in accordance with their label directions for use -- present a significant or unreasonable risk of illness or injury."

The American Heart Association, however, applauded the move, calling it "a victory" for the health of Americans.

"It sends a clear message to consumers either using or considering the use of these products, who may be unaware of the potential risks," then-AHA president Dr. Augustus O. Grant said in a prepared statement. "While they may believe they are doing something good for their health, in truth they could be putting themselves at serious risk."

African Plant May Help Fight Fat

Now along comes hoodia. Never heard of it? Soon it'll be tripping off your tongue, because hoodia is a natural substance that literally takes your appetite away.

It's very different from diet stimulants like Ephedra and Phenfen that are now banned because of dangerous side effects. Hoodia doesn't stimulate at all. Scientists say it fools the brain by making you think you’re full, even if you've eaten just a morsel.

Hoodia is a bitter-tasting cactus-like plant. 60 Minutes was told that if it wanted to try hoodia, it would have to go to Africa. Why? Because the only place in the world where hoodia grows wild is in the Kalahari Desert of South Africa.

Nigel Crawhall, a linguist and interpreter, hired an experienced tracker named Toppies Kruiper, a local aboriginal Bushman, to help find it. The Bushmen were featured in the movie “The Gods Must Be Crazy.”

Kruiper led 60 Minutes crews out into the desert. Stahl asked him if he ate hoodia. "I really like to eat them when the new rains have come," says Kruiper, speaking through the interpreter. "Then they're really quite delicious."

When we located the plant, Kruiper cut off a stalk that looked like a small spiky pickle, and removed the sharp spines. In the interest of science, Stahl ate it. She described the taste as "a little cucumbery in texture, but not bad."

So how did it work? Stahl says she had no after effects – no funny taste in her mouth, no queasy stomach, and no racing heart. She also wasn't hungry all day, even when she would normally have a pang around mealtime. And, she also had no desire to eat or drink the entire day. "I'd have to say it did work," says Stahl.

Although the West is just discovering hoodia, the Bushmen of the Kalahari have been eating it for a very long time. After all, they have been living off the land in southern Africa for more than 100,000 years. HOODIA CLICK HERE

Some of the Bushmen, like Anna Swartz, still live in old traditional huts, and cook so-called Bush food gathered from the desert the old-fashioned way.

The first scientific investigation of the plant was conducted at South Africa’s national laboratory. Because Bushmen were known to eat hoodia, it was included in a study of indigenous foods.

"What they found was when they fed it to animals, the animals ate it and lost weight," says Dr. Richard Dixey, who heads an English pharmaceutical company called Phytopharm that is trying to develop weight-loss products based on hoodia.

Was hoodia's potential application as an appetite suppressant immediately obvious? "No, it took them a long time. In fact, the original research was done in the mid 1960s," says Dixey. It took the South African national laboratory 30 years to isolate and identify the specific appetite-suppressing ingredient in hoodia. When they found it, they applied for a patent and licensed it to Phytopharm.

Phytopharm has spent more than $20 million so far on research, including clinical trials with obese volunteers that have yielded promising results. Subjects given hoodia ended up eating about 1,000 calories a day less than those in the control group. To put that in perspective, the average American man consumes about 2,600 calories a day; a woman about 1,900.

"If you take this compound every day, your wish to eat goes down. And we've seen that very, very dramatically," says Dixey.

But why do you need a patent for a plant? "The patent is on the application of the plant as a weight-loss material. And, of course, the active compounds within the plant. It’s not on the plant itself," says Dixey.

So no one else can use hoodia for weight loss? "As a weight-management product without infringing the patent, that’s correct," says Dixey.

But what does that say about all these weight-loss products that claim to have hoodia in it? Trimspa says its X32 pills contain 75 mg of hoodia. The company is pushing its product with an ad campaign featuring Anna Nicole Smith, even though the FDA has notified Trimspa that it hasn’t demonstrated that the product is safe.

Some companies have even used the results of Phytopharm’s clinical tests to market their products.

"This is just straightforward theft. That’s what it is. People are stealing data, which they haven’t done, they’ve got no proper understanding of, and sticking on the bottle," says Dixey. "When we have assayed these materials, they contain between 0.1 and 0.01 percent of the active ingredient claimed. But they use the term hoodia on the bottle, of course, so they -- does nothing at all."

But Dixey isn’t the only one who’s felt ripped off. The Bushmen first heard the news about the patent when Phytopharm put out a press release. Roger Chennells, a lawyer in South Africa who represents the Bushmen, who are also called “the San,” was appalled.

"The San did not even know about it," says Chennells. "They had given the information that led directly toward the patent."

The taking of traditional knowledge without compensation is called “bio-piracy.” "You have said, and I'm going to quote you, 'that the San felt as if someone had stolen the family silver,'" says Stahl to Chennells. "So what did you do?" "I wouldn't want to go into some of the details as to what kind of letters were written or what kind of threats were made," says Chennells. "We engaged them. They had done something wrong, and we wanted them to acknowledge it." Chennells was determined to help the Bushmen who, he says, have been exploited for centuries. First they were pushed aside by black tribes. Then, when white colonists arrived, they were nearly annihilated.

"About the turn of the century, there were still hunting parties in Namibia and in South Africa that allowed farmers to go and kill Bushmen," says Chennells. "It's well documented."

The Bushmen are still stigmatized in South Africa, and plagued with high unemployment, little education, and lots of alcoholism. And now, it seemed they were about to be cut out of a potential windfall from hoodia. So Chennells threatened to sue the national lab on their behalf.

"We knew that if it was successful, many, many millions of dollars would be coming towards the San," says Chennells. "Many, many millions. They've talked about the market being hundreds and hundreds of millions in America." In the end, a settlement was reached. The Bushmen will get a percentage of the profits -- if there are profits. But that’s a big if.

The future of hoodia is not yet a sure thing. The project hit a major snag last year. Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, which had teamed up with Phytopharm, and funded much of the research, dropped out when making a pill out of the active ingredient seemed beyond reach.

Dixey says it can be made synthetically: "We've made milligrams of it. But it's very expensive. It's not possible to make it synthetically in what’s called a scaleable process. So we couldn’t make a metric ton of it or something that is the sort of quantity you’d need to actually start doing something about obesity in thousands of people."

Phytopharm decided to market hoodia in its natural form, in diet shakes and bars. That meant it needed the hoodia plant itself.

But given the obesity epidemic in the United States, it became obvious that what was needed was a lot of hoodia - much more than was growing in the wild in the Kalahari. And so they came here.

60 Minutes visited one of Phytopharm’s hoodia plantations in South Africa. They’ll need a lot of these plantations to meet the large demand of Hoodia.

Agronomist Simon MacWilliam has a tall order: grow a billion portions a year of hoodia, within just a couple of years. He admitted that starting up the plantation has been quite a challenge.

"The problem is we’re dealing with a novel crop. It’s a plant we’ve taken out of the wild and we’re starting to grow it,' says MacWilliam. "So we have no experience. So it’s different— diseases and pests which we have to deal with."

How confident are they that they will be able to grow enough of the Hoodaia? "We're very confident of that," he says. "We've got an expansion program which is going to be 100s of acres. And we'll be able – ready to meet the demand.

This could be huge, given the obesity epidemic. Phytopharm says it’s about to announce marketing plans that will have meal-replacement hoodia products on supermarket shelves by 2008.

MacWilliam says these products are a slightly different species from the hoodia Stahl tasted in the Kalahari Desert. "It's actually a lot more bitter than the plant that you tasted," says MacWilliam.

The advantage is this species of hoodia will grow a lot faster. But more bitter? How bad could it be? Stahl decided to find out. "Not good," she says.

Phytopharm says that when its product gets to market, it will be certified safe and effective. They also promise that it’ll taste good. HOODIA CLICK HERE

You may not know this but LegalGear is the company that shook the world by FIRST releasing M1T. LegalGear is a brand that is known for innovation and quality products. I can’t tell you the countless emails stating “your M-ONE-T worked better than any other brand on the market.

So, everyone kept asking us “when are you going to have a replacement for M-ONE-T/M1T?” We were not about to bring out something lame like a crappy tribulus testosterone booster mix and then try to tell you it is “new and revolutionary”. That’s not our style. We don’t try to screw or fool our customers, people buying LegalGear expect something better. After so many questions, we knew we had to find something!

We had a tough job ahead of us, find an anabolic agent that is 100% legal and builds muscle like a pro-hormone. Impossible? Not from the labs at LegalGear! This search for the perfect anabolic lead us down many paths and many areas. Sure, we could have sold out and tried to hide a “steroid” by disguising it’s name like some other’s have done, only to get caught and forced to remove the product from the market, but we wanted to make a product that would last the ban and be available for years to come.

The first set of compounds we looked at certainly hit the mark when it came to building muscle, but we wanted to be on the FAR side of legal, not on the edge, so we had to skip the countless unscheduled steroids that were missed by congress. We didn’t want to sell anything that was even remotely edgy, but still gave AWESOME results. We had to find something that built muscle, but didn’t cross the legal line…

The law reads:
“(A) The term `anabolic steroid' means any drug or hormonal substance, chemically and pharmacologically related to testosterone (other than estrogens, progestins, corticosteroids, and dehydroepiandrosterone), and includes-- “

That left us without the “luxury” of trying to skirt the law by bringing out anything related to testosterone or other androgens like some other’s have done. (we personally want to stay out of jail) So, instead of trying to cheat the law, we decided to see what Congress left us. Estrogens? Nope, that wouldn’t work, although we did find one estrogen derivative that might be useful for building muscle (it’s not active as an estrogen though). Corticosteroids? Nah, they have a lot of uses, but building muscle wasn’t one we found. DHEA? Well, I think the days of DHEA and muscle building sort of died in the 90’s. People know DHEA doesn’t build muscle.

Did you know this about the Anabolic Steroid Control Act of 2004?

Androgenic steroids and their pro-hormones can be scheduled at any time! All the government has to do is announce on the Federal Registry that a new pro-hormone or steroid is being scheduled and you will now be carrying and inventorying a Class III scheduled drug? Selling and distributing such a drug is a HIGHY PUNNISHABLE OFFENSE, much less just carrying such an item. We decided not to skirt the law and jeopardize jail time by being innovative instead of just releasing another steroid or precursor. Not sure about you, but I am too old to do jail time… Do you know how to read the Federal Registry? I don’t… That left us one choice… Progestins! How do progestins build muscle you ask? Well, not any old progestin will do, you have to look long and hard for the “right” progestin. Our search for a progestin capable of building HUGE MUSCLE and without ANY side effects took months! We scoured the literature and found a progestin that is used in AIDS patients to prevent muscle wasting! This was a decent find, but we were not satisfied to give you just the bare minimum that nature has to offer. We looked harder and found a metabolite of the progestin used in those AIDS wasting studies that was even MORE potent at building muscle! Don’t forget that the MOST POTENT steroids on the market are ACTUALLY PROGESTINS TOO! Things like Mibolerone (Cheque Drops), Trenbolone (Fina), Nandrolone (Deca), and Anadrol are steroids but ALSO PROGESTINS!

Even a better muscle builder than many illegal steroids... By finding the right progestin, we were able to deliver a totally legal muscle monster that is even more active than many illegal steroids. It’s more potent that many of the favorite illegal anabolics on the black market. We then added in our nutrient partitioning agents and we had a winner capable of building 10 lbs of mass in 2 weeks!

Finally, we added our special methyl delivery system and the most POTENT LEGAL ANABOLIC was born!!! METHYL 1-P CLICK HERE

Finigenx is not on the list of banned prohormones: therefore is now available.
FiniGenX Magnum 5% Liposomal Pro-steroid solution contains 25 mg per 6 ml of Estra-4,9-diene-3,17-dione microencapsulated in a liposome delivery system (Patent Pending), which increases the bodies' lymphatic absorption of the pro-steroid. Estra-4,9-diene-3,17-dione is a powerful pro-steroid chemically similar to the anabolic agent Trenbolone. The Estra-4,9-diene-3,17-dione molecule is literally the closest thing to Trenbolone on the market. Estra-4,9-diene-3,17-dione can easily be converted to Trenbolone through organic chemical reactions. Estra-4,9-diene-3,17-dione is very similar in structure to Trenbolone and will have similar binding affinity for Trenbolone receptor cites. Trenbolone is a steroid having the advantages of undergoing no adverse metabolism, not being affected by aromatase or 5alpha-reductase; being a very potent Class I steroid binding well to the androgen receptor and having a short half-life.FINIGENX

FiniGenX Magnum 5% Liposomal Pro-steroid solution is a potent liposomal pro-steroid. The liposome delivery system microencapsulates the pro-steroid in a sphere containing phospholipids and the pro-steroid in the exterior sphere wall, with a water beadlet on the interior. This bioactive pro-steroid liposome is then dispersed throughout a base of water and flavoring agents making an easy to take pro-steroid liposomal solution. The size of these bioactive pro-steroid liposomal spheres in this solution is 100-300 nm. FiniGenX Magnum 5% Liposomal Pro-steroid solution is a light blue colored solution. The ingredients are listed below.

Bioactive Pro-steroid Liposome Ingredients: Estra-4,9-diene-3,17-dione (25 mg), Phospholipids, and Emulsifiers. Flavored Base: Water, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Natural Flavors, Artificial Colors, Potassium Sorbate and Sodium Benzoate.

FiniGenX Magnum 5% Liposomal Pro-steroid solution is for oral use only and is supplied with convenient metering devices such as and oral dosing dispenser (similar to baby medicines) or a metered measuring cup.

Clinical Pharmacology: When in the body Estra-4,9-diene-3,17-dione releases one two hydrogen molecules and becomes a donor for another to complete the conversion to Trenbolone. Trenbolone is a potent anabolic steroid, which binds to specific receptors present especially in reproductive tissue, muscle and fat (Mooradian & Morley, 1987). Trenbolone reduces nitrogen excretion from tissue breakdown (Anti-catabolic). Trenbolone (steroids) are also responsible for normal male sexual differentiation. The ratio of anabolic ("body-building") effects to androgenic (virilizing) effects is a common rating of anabolic steroids Trenbolone has a high anabolic ratio with no adverse metabolism, not being affected by aromatase or 5alpha-reductase.

Pharmacokinetics: The liposome delivery system takes the Estra-4,9-diene-3, 17-dione and solubilizes it then creates one easy to absorb compound called a pro-steroid liposome. Because of this increased solubility FiniGenX Magnum 5% Liposomal Pro-steroid solution is absorbed in 15 minutes. The liposomes have natural affinity for bodies' cells, which sufficiently targets blood stream absorption; FiniGenX Magnum 5% Liposomal Pro-steroid solution reaches its peak concentration in 30 minutes. The multi-layered structure of the FiniGenX Magnum 5% Liposomal Pro-steroid solution creates a sustained release with prolonged effect of 4-5 hours.

Indications and usage: FiniGenX Magnum 5% Liposomal Pro-steroid solution is indicated in adults 21 years or older with a balanced diet and exercise program who desire to increase lean muscle mass. FINIGENX

What is Ephedrine, Ephedra and Ma Huang?

These terms are used to refer to the same substance derived from the plant Ephedra. (There are many common names for these evergreen plants, including squaw tea and Mormon tea.) Ephedra is a shrub-like plant that is found in desert regions in central Asia and other parts of the world. The dried greens of the plant are used medicinally. Ephedra is a stimulant containing the herbal form of ephedrine, an FDA-regulated drug found in over-the-counter asthma medications.

In the United States, ephedra and ephedrine was sold in health food stores under a variety of brand names. Ephedrine was widely used for weight loss, as an energy booster, and to enhance athletic performance. These products did contain other stimulants, such as caffeine, which may have synergistic effects and increase the potential for adverse effects. Ephedra is often touted as the "herbal fen-phen."

Ephedra's main active medical ingredients are the alkaloids ephedrine and pseudoephedrine. The ephedras also contain various tannins and related chemicals.The stem contains 1-3% total alkaloids, with ephedrine accounting for 30-90% of this total. The concentrations of these alkaloids depends upon the particular species of ephedra used.

Ephedrine alkaloids are amphetamine-like compounds used in OTC and prescription drugs with potentially lethal stimulant effects on the central nervous system and heart. The FDA has received more than 800 reports of adverse effects associated with use of products containing ephedrine alkaloid since 1994. These serious adverse effects, include hypertension (elevated blood pressure), palpitations (rapid heart rate), neurophathy (nerve damage), myopathy (muscle injury), psychosis, stroke, memory loss, heart rate irregularities, insomnia, nervousness, tremors, seizures, heart attacks, and death. The agency has proposed to prohibit the marketing of dietary supplements containing 8 milligrams or more of ephedrine alkaloids per serving. EPHEDRINE

Dicana The Fat Burner Of The Year

Imagine if you could take a pill that would burn fat storing calories as raw energy while muscle building nutrients get shuttled to muscle cells to be used as building blocks for new muscle, all while inducing extreme thermogenisis by increasing body temperature and increasing oxygen consumption. You might think you have stumbled upon the magic pill.

What would you call this magic pill? We named it Dicana after its chemical cousin (Tricana).


DICANA™ - Naturally Occurring Metabolic Regulator is a powerful, patent pending, non stimulating dietary supplement developed to cause extreme body fat loss while sparing muscle tissue. When used as directed Dicana has the ability to raise your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR, the rate at which your body burns calories at rest) and can dramatically shift the proportion between lean body mass and adipose tissue (fat) in favor of lean body mass. Dicana works by increasing protein synthesis thru calorie repartitioning while simultaneously causing an increase in body temperature and oxygen consumption for extreme fat loss without muscle catabolism.

In the world of fat burning physiology, Dicana exerts a truly unique phenomenon, there is certainly NOTHING in today's marketplace that even comes remotely close to the powerful metabolic activity of Dicana.

You see, not only is Dicana metabolically active on its own but Dicana also has direct reversible pathways to T3, Tricana (tiratricol) and T2 and therefore acts as a precursor to these powerful fat shredding compounds. I guess you could say that Dicana is like 4 powerful fat burning supplements in one.

Dicana is a not central nervous system stimulant and thus will not give you the jitters. Enhanced results may be accomplished with a healthy diet high in protein and proper anaerobic training. Dicana™ is truly a revolutionary fat loss product and the quintessential supplement for anyone concerned with weight management or enhanced body composition.

There is no other product on the market that can make these claims and there is no there product on the market nearly as effective as the fat incinerator Dicana. No other company can sell you Dicana, because after we discovered this metabolite and its unique metabolic activity we filed a U.S. utility patent in order keep the competition from stealing our intellectual property.

Hate Cardio? You'll Love This Program!

The New Year is now behind us. Many who made resolutions have probably fallen off the beaten track.

My fitness goal was to add more cardio to my regimen. Granted, I didn’t wait until Jan 1, 2005 to make this change, but nevertheless, it was something that was new to me. I typically did some cardiovascular work a few days a week, but I dreaded that 30-40 minutes on the machines. It wasn’t hard to find excuses to nix the cardio sessions. I think it was Dennis Leary who said it best “why is it that we all get in our cars, drive 30 minutes to the gym, only to walk in place on a machine that gets us nowhere. We then turn back around and drive 30 minutes home.” I’m paraphrasing, but you get the gist. No wonder people’s goals fall between their fingers; cardiovascular exercise, just like anything in life, can be monotonous and boring if not varied.

The Body’s Energy Systems First of all, remember that ATP is the muscle’s energy currency. It’s like cash. Second, muscle cells store limited amounts of ATP. Therefore, because muscles need a constant supply of ATP for energy, there has to be a system(s) in place to provide this energy.

There are three metabolic pathways that can do so:
1 - Formation of ATP by phosphocreatine (stored in the muscles) breakdown.
2 - Formation of ATP via the degradation of glucose (carbohydrate in the blood) or glycogen (stored carbohydrate). This is called glycolysis.
3 - Oxidative formation by use of oxygen.
The first two pathways are called anaerobic (‘an’ meaning without and ‘aerobic’ meaning oxygen). Therefore, those two pathways do not need oxygen to function. The phosphocreatine system provides energy for muscular contraction at the onset of exercise and during short-term, high intensity exercise (typically around 5 seconds). Activities like sprinting 50 meters, weight lifting, or a football player exploding off the line, would all primarily use this system. Then, the body rests and reformation can occur. Keep in mind that during these types of activities, you’re huffing and puffing because you do not have enough oxygen to breath with a normal rhythm.

The second system capable of producing ATP fairly rapidly without oxygen is called glycolysis. This involves the breakdown of glucose (blood sugar) or glycogen (stored carbohydrate) to produce ATP. Once the activity becomes too demanding (with increasing duration or intensity), the body “shifts” into the third system to continue to provide the necessary energy (ATP) to the working muscles.

The third pathway is called aerobic (remember, ‘aerobic’ means oxygen). This pathway needs oxygen to work, which subsequently, means the body is working at a much lower intensity (think treadmill walking or jogging) so you can still breath at a fairly normal rate.

This is all important so you understand why you’re doing what you’re doing and not just following the herd.

If you’re reading this and wondering “so how do I vary my exercise? My gym only has treadmills, bikes, and elliptical machines. That leaves very few unique options.” Well, my friend, a great way to burn blubber, is to burn rubber! No, not in your car—unless yours is one of those Fred Flintstone deals where the feet go through the floor. I’m talking about sprinting! If you’ve been stuck in the same cardio rut for sometime now, get outside (or if you live in the north like me and being outside with negative wind chills is dangerous, get to a treadmill).

WARNING: sprinting will cause you to be short of breath, weak in the knees, and so fatigued you’ll want to collapse. Do not incorporate sprinting into your workout if you are a novice; sprinting is for intermediate and advanced trainees.

Sprinting is more of an anaerobic type activity and will get your heart thumping like no other. Studies have shown that short duration, high intensity activities actually burn more energy (calories) post-workout than do longer duration, lower intensity activities, like walking. In fact, picture the physique of a marathon runner compared to a sprinter; sprinters are super lean and very muscular. To me, that’s the quintessential great physique.

So here’s what I want you to do to begin your interval training: Eliminate all slow, aerobic training at this time. Begin by adding sprints two times per week to your normal resistance routine. Now, I am far from a qualified track coach, but I can tell you to stand up as tall as possible when running (rather than hunching over when fatigued, which is common). Use your hamstrings to propel you forward, meaning your heels should kick off the ground rather high and look straight ahead the entire time. Ventilean is a great product that will help you burn body fat faster, as a matter of fact with exercise within the first 8 to 12 with Ventilean Gel Caps

For a warm up, I prefer walking a lap around the track and then jogging one lap around the track. Another very wise idea is to take exaggerated strides during the end of your walk to help stretch the hip flexors (top part of the front of your legs).

At the end of your final sprint, walk slowly to catch your breath; stretch all areas of your legs. If you are not accustomed to sprinting, the next day (or two) your entire body will be sore. You will feel this in your abs, obliques, hamstrings, quadriceps and hip flexor area. These sprinting days can either be coupled to a resistance training workout, or completed on an entirely different day on their own.

Here’s how it goes:
Week 1:
Days 1 and 2: Take Ventilean Gel Caps

30 minutes before you workout. Start with a 60 second jog, followed by a 15 second sprint, 60 second jog, etc. Allow 3 days of “active recovery,” between sprints. Active recovery means doing other exercises. Repeat these 60, 15 cycles 6 times each (6-60 second jogs and 6-15 second sprints). Allow 3 days of “active recovery,” between sprints.

Week 2:
Days 1 and 2: Again take the Ventilean 30 minutes before you workout.Start with a 60 second jog, followed by a 15 second sprint, 60 second jog, etc. Repeat this cycle 8 times. Allow 3 days of “active recovery,” between sprints.
Week 3 (notice, there are 3 sprinting days this week): Days 1, 2, and 3: Ventilean 30 prior to workout. Start with a 60 second jog, followed by a 15 second sprint, 60 second jog, etc. Repeat this cycle 10 times. Allow 2 days of “active recovery,” between sprint days.
Week 4: Days 1, 2, and 3: Switch to Ventilean liquid, this is much stronger and will really amp up your fat burning. Start with a 60 second jog, followed by a 15 second sprint, 60 second jog, etc. Repeat this cycle 12 times. Allow 2 days of “active recovery,” between sprint days.
After every workout take in a protein source, this will help your muscles recover and perform better the next time you workout. CytoSport Complete Whey

That’s it for this month. In the near future, I’ll outline a different program to continue making that body into a fat burning inferno. Never forget the importance of diet. It doesn’t matter how hard you train; if you’re not following a sound diet, you will not efficiently lose weight.

Good luck!

Ask anyone who knows anything about anabolic steroids or who has ever used them before. There is a risk to the use of many anabolic steroids, a risk of increasing estrogen levels. Estrogen is the female hormone that is the arch nemesis of athletes everywhere. Too much estrogen in your body means you end up with bitch tits (aka "gyno") and even worse, just a little too much estrogen in your body and your own testicles get "switched off" and will no longer produce sperm or testosterone. Too much estrogen and you end up emotional, with terrible mood swings. Too much estrogen and you end up looking smooth, puffy, bloated, you retain water like a woman with a bad case of PMS. But what can a smart and educated athlete who must eradicate or severely reduce the amount of estrogen found in the human body, whether caused by anabolic steroid use or "naturally" just found there do to correct this problem? What can YOU do to prevent the production of this unwanted, arch nemesis hormone, that female hormone estrogen that will literally turn the strongest and most muscular man literally into a womanNOVEDEX XTREME


Just about any athlete who has ever use steroids realized many years ago that there are potent drugs that reduce or even eliminate estrogen or at least it's undesirable effects in the human body. Some of these drugs are still used today by less educated athletes. These drugs don't reduce the amount of estrogen in the human body but they do block the effects of estrogen. The "estrogen blockers" include such drugs as tamoxifen citrate (Nolvadex) and clomiphene citrate (Clomid) which compete for the estrogen receptor against estrogen and thereby, prevent estrogen from attaching to the cell and causing those horrible side effects. While these drugs are usually fairly effective in preventing gyno and testicular shut down, these drugs themselves actually have very mild estrogenic side effects in some cells like the hepatocytes found in the liver. The result of even this slight estrogenic effect is a profound reduction in IGF-1 levels in the human body. IGF-1 is the most potent and effective substance ever discovered for increasing lean muscle mass. So why would anyone want to deliberately reduce the amount of IGF-1 in the body? Well obviously the smarter athlete would not want to do anything to decrease IGF-1 levels, if anything, the smarter athletes want to increase IGF-1 levels. So these estrogen blockers can prevent or reduce one type of problem only to cause yet another problem. This is a bad approach at reducing or eliminating the effects of estrogen. Just a few years ago smarter athletes discovered new way to fight off the effects of estrogen: prevent the actual production of estrogen in the human body from ever happening at all!!! The use of a new type of drug called "aromatase inhibitors" which work by blocking the production of estrogens in the human body by attaching and sticking to the enzyme aromatase. Aromatase is the master estrogen-making enzyme which transforms many good, anabolic hormones like testosterone and Dianabol into the bad estrogenic hormones like estradiol and methylestradiol causing gyno and testicular shrinkage. By working at the root of the problem, the actual production of these estrogens, aromatase inhibitors do not share the negative effects that traditional estrogen blockers such as tamoxifen citrate (Nolvadex) and clomiphene citrate (Clomid) have in reducing IGF-1 levels in the human body. Instead they work as absolute and only anti-estrogens, and this is why smarter bodybuilders prefer the use of aromatase inhibitors to estrogen blockers in this day and age of modern science.NOVEDEX XTREME


Dianestrozole™ is not the first legal supplement to be an effective anti-aromatase. But Dianestrozole™ is certainly the very best. Unlike other anti-estrogens being sold in the supplement market today such as 4-hydroxyandrostenedione (aka "Formestane"). Dianestrozole™ does not have any inherent anabolic or androgenic properties and will cause testicle shut down. And unlike another anti-aromatase being sold everywhere today called 3,6,17-androstenetrione, the ingredients in Dianestrozole™ do NOT eventually convert to an estrone or estradiol derivative which are of course estrogens(1). That's correct, 3,6,17-androstenetrione actually BECOMES several estrogenic derivatives in the human body itself. That seems counterproductive doesn't it? Why would you take a supplement to block the production of estrogen if that supplement gets transformed into a potential estrogenic substance in the human body? Well, smarter athletes would not.NOVEDEX XTREME

After almost a decade of painstaking research by some of the brightest scientists in the supplement industry into the area of anti-aromatases, only two compounds appear in the supplement market place that are really effective as anti-aromatases in the human body AND do not convert into an estrogen themselves or contribute to testicle shut down. Both ingredients are patent pending and both ingredients are found ONLY and EXCLUSIVELY in Dianestrozole™.NOVEDEX XTREME

Dianestrozole™ contains two key ingredients scientists call "suicide inhibitors of aromatase". This means that the two ingredients found in Dianestrozole™ attach directly to the aromatase enzyme in a permanent and irreversible manner, which prevents the aromatase enzyme from ever making estrogens. The end result of the effects of Dianestrozole™ is the reduction of the actual aromatase enzyme in the human body as well as the reduction and in some case, the almost total elimination of estrogen hormone and by-products in the human body. A corresponding increase in testosterone as well as IGF-1 production is usually experienced as well. As long as an athlete takes Dianestrozole™ this athlete will experience a reduction in the amount of aromatase enzyme and estrogens and an increase in testosterone and IGF-1 in the human body.NOVEDEX XTREME

Dianestrozole™ contains TWO unique anti-aromatase supplements. The first one is called hydroxyandrost-4-ene-6,17-dioxo-3-THP ether which is a patent pending anti-aromatase to which 3,6,17-androstenetrione is actually a prohormone to(2). Because it utilizes the advanced ether delivery system technology, this amazing compound has a prolonged effect in the human body which means you only need to take it once per day as opposed to many times per day with other supplement anti-aromatases or anti-estrogens. The second amazing, patent pending substance founding Dianestrozole™ is called 3,17-diketo-androst-1,4,6-triene which is actually close to three times more potent than 3,6,17-andostenetrione in preventing the production of estrogen(3) and is the single most potent aromatase inhibitor ever sold in the supplement market place! The combination of a long acting anti aromatase with the most potent anti-aromatase ever sold as an immediate release estrogen eliminator provide the smarter athlete with a double edged attack against the effects of estrogen and the prevention of estrogen formation.NOVEDEX XTREME

Relief of Sinus and Allergy Symptoms as well as Cluster and Migraine Headaches

Sinus Buster all natural hot pepper,(Capsaicin) based nasal spray has already been embraced by chronic sinus and headache sufferers around the world, but now this unique formula is even more effective against migraines, clusters, sinus headaches, and chronic congestion. Today, SiCap Industries officially launched the new and improved version of their breakthrough product known as "The Sinus Buster".

Known as perhaps the best headache remedy in the world, all natural Sinus Buster Capsaicin nasal spray is now 25% more effective with the launch of their long awaited "new and improved" formula. Known as the world's first nasal spray made with natural hot pepper extract, the Sinus Buster has been embraced by many doctors as a true breakthrough for treating migraine, cluster, and sinus related headaches. Sinus Buster works fast. Officials at SiCap Industries, makers of the Sinus Buster, say this new formula can stop most headaches in under 30 seconds.

"We've spent the last six months improving the best qualities of our formula. First, we found a way to increase the efficiency of our natural pepper extracts without significantly increasing the bite. This allows the formula to work even faster on migraines, clusters, and sinus headaches. For headaches near the front of your head and behind your eyes, this new formula spells near instant relief every time you use it. In fact we've been testing it on a group of regular users for the past few months, and in terms of percentages, the new formula seems to be at least 25 percent more effective than the original Sinus Buster against both headaches and sick sinus symptoms. We already had the most effective sinus headache remedy ever with the original sinus buster, but now we think we have the ultimate sinus buster, and we're very excited to finally introduce it into the marketplace," says Wayne Perry, President of SiCap Industries and inventor of the originalSinus Buster formula.

Perry claims the new formula tackles some of the challenges associated producing an all natural liquid supplement. He says the new formula extends shelf life without introducing any man made preservatives found in most so-called "natural products". Perry also claims the new formula is designed to carry the capsaicin farther back through the nasal passages and into the sinus cavities.

"We've upgraded our eucalyptus oil and changed a few of the controls we use to mix the active solution. This allows the eucalyptus to act as an even more effective carrier for the capsaicin. So although you do get a slightly more powerful bite, the capsaicin has been increased only in near microscopic proportions. The biggest change is that the capsaicin is actually being delivered more efficiently," Perry adds.

Comparing the bite of the new and old formulas is a very subjective experience because both solutions feel almost equally powerful. The difference in the two formulas (however slight), would be that the new formula delivers a cleaner and longer lasting effect, and it also delivers a more brilliant burst of energy due to the triggering effect it has on the body to release natural endorphins. Both formulas will make your eyes water, and both will stomp on a headache fast, but the new formula definitely works faster. Furthermore, the new formula knocks out nasal congestion far more effectively than the old version. It also appears to take less of the new Sinus Buster to do the same job as the old Sinus Buster formula. This is great for seasonal allergies.

As far as the actual bite of the pepper extract, the new Sinus Buster formula feels stronger, but not over the top. It's similar to the difference between a 400 horsepower motor and a 450 horsepower motor, both have awesome power, but the 450 HP version is just a bit more powerful. This is due mainly to a change in the combination of natural pepper extracts used in the new formula. Wayne Perry claims the company has spent much time and money figuring out ways to get the most medicinal benefits from the capsaicin.

"We've tweaked the combination of pepper extracts we use to deliver a better all around pain stopping effect. Believe me, nothing relieves a headache or congestion like this sinus buster formula. The old formula has always been awesome, but the new version simply takes the cake," boasts Perry.

Perry also says the new formula addresses some of the issues related to bottling a totally natural product, and the length of time that the product is at its most effective. While developing the formula, the researchers took great pains to increase shelf life effectiveness through completely natural methods.

"We decided to make the switch to a very expensive organic rosemary extract along with increasing its parts per million ratio to better uphold the integrity of the formula. When used properly, rosemary extract is one of the best all natural preservatives known. It especially works well when you’re dealing with essential oils and natural resins in a liquid mixture. We've looked into using other preservatives commonly used in other so-called natural products, but the truth is those preservatives contain compounds that frankly work against the benefits of our pepper extract. We refuse to USE anything but completely natural food grade ingredients. After all, I use this stuff too and I’m not putting anything in my nose that isn't all natural and safe," adds Perry.

SiCap Industries prides itself on being a microbrewer of sorts. Instead of making vast quantities of Sinus Buster designated for surplus storage, SiCap produces their formula in fresh batches on a bi-monthly basis. The company's philosophy is one of hand crafted old world excellence, a philosophy that shines through when you try your first shot of the Sinus Buster .

"The secret of intranasal capsaicin is that so little active ingredient is actually needed, and when you're dealing with totally natural ingredients, the pepper resins are susceptible to a certain amount of oxidation once the bottle has been open for awhile. So with the old formula, within three months after opening the bottle some people might experience a slight weakening of the pepper bite. The effectiveness of the formula actually remains about the same, yet there is a psychological factor since some users may believe it won't be as effective if the bite is lessened. The other thing is that when you're dealing with hot pepper extract, the average user will get used to the bite and believe it's weakened when actually it hasn’t. Of course this all depends on how a person stores their sinus buster and how tightly they close the top between uses. Our formula is full of anti-oxidants and anti-microbial compounds so it doesn't go bad at all, but the stability of the pepper bite still relies heavily on storage factors because of the small amount used. With our new formula, by increasing the rosemary and vitamin C, and by modifying our temperature controls during the mixing process, we've found a way to increase the shelf life of an open bottle by as much as 50 percent. So once opened, the pepper bite remains fully effective for up to six months and possibly beyond," Perry explains.

In the fall, SiCap plans on introducing a metered dose version of their Sinus Buster in addition to the original bottle which will continue to be their top seller. The newer bottle will be an upright closed top atomizer, and marketed mainly for allergy sufferers. Although one advantage of the closed top atomizer is the fact that air is never introduced to the formula, officials at SiCap say there are also some downfalls.

"It's a give and take thing. The closed sprayer naturally extends shelf life by at least double, but it only delivers a metered dose in a fine mist spray. This seems to work well for typical allergy sufferers, but for chronic headaches and sinus infections, a pre-metered mist just doesn't do the job the way the original spray bottle does. The original bottle does have the disadvantage of taking in air when the bottle is squeezed and released, but it's far more versatile for most users once they learn how to control the bottle. When you first open it, the bottle is full and it can fire a solid stream into the nasal cavity. The harder you squeeze, the bigger the burst. As it empties, you may have to tilt the bottle upward to continuously get the bursting stream spray effect, but you quickly learn how to position the bottle for your desired effect. The other thing is that this bottle can also be used to deliver a light mist spray depending on how hard you squeeze it, and how you position the bottle. People with chronic headaches and sinus congestion rarely need the same dosage every time. So they would probably get little relief from the fine mist application, but the original bottle gives them true versatility in dosage and application. For instance, the fine mist doesn't help my cluster headaches the way the original bottle does. When I have an attack, sometimes I need to be able to spray a long burst very far into my nose to get rid of the headache. You just can’t do that with the fine mist applicator. So that's why we'll continue to focus our main attention on marketing the original bottle, while the newer one will be offered as an alternative," Perry explains.

All in all, theSinus Buster has the same aromatic qualities as the old formula, but there's a more intensified aroma of eucalyptus with an extra hint of citrus and rosemary. The new Sinus Buster is definitely a more exhilarating experience, and it seems to leave your nasal passages feeling even more satisfied than the old formula. Once the initial bite wears off (usually about 5 seconds), the warm sensation of pepper combines with the cooling sensation of eucalyptus to create an incredibly refreshing and lasting feeling.

"Our long time regular users will merely notice a cleaner fresher sensation in taste and aroma. We also use a very pure Aloe Vera gel that moisturizes the nasal passages leaving you with a crisp and clean healthy feeling. I've been using nothing but the new formula for about three months now, and it's just fantastic. Usually I have to fight a sinus cluster headache cycle every summer, and with the old formula I could fight it off, but when it's really humid I'd have to use it sometimes every 20 minutes. But with the new formula, I've warded off my summer attacks pretty much instantly, and a couple good doses daily seem to be preventing my headaches more than ever.
