    I don't plan on touching muscle tech or anabolic halo. A guy I know was just talking about the stuff and there are so many things in it I really cant tell exactly what it is. And I read the quote from the bottle "anabolic halo is an extremely powerful anabolic product... dont take if you are under 18." A lot of things though say do not take if you are under 18 just so companies can cover themselves, not necessarily that it is bad.

    Just glimpsed it but it just looks like amino acids with some herbals. Either way, it's by MuscleTech if that says anything.

    Nothing in there will kill him, it's just a bad product, tell him to enjoy his nap after he takes it. One of the awesome thing in that Super Prop blend is melatonin.

    Review: Muscletech's Anabolic Halo


    "Brace yourself, for the extreme musclebuilding potency of the world?s most hardcore anabolic/non-androgenic musclebuilding supplement ? ANABOLIC HALO. The cryogenically enhanced formula forces you into a total body muscle metamorphosis? It synergizes a shockingly powerful anabolic environment that radiates from your muscles, setting the stage for chilling, eerie muscle gains the likes of which no bodybuilder has ever imagined."

    At first glance, Anabolic Halo looks like a reviewer's worst nightmare. In addition to the loooooong list of (75!!!) ingredients, there's a flood of "techno-speak" to cut through. To all appearances, Anabolic Halo is the most complicated, technologically-advanced supplement on the market.

    Appearances can be deceiving, however. Despite the barrage of words, Anabolic Halo is actually pretty simple to figure out.

    Need proof? Here's an example...

    "The second pharmaceutically inspired technology, called Lyophilization, actually changes the physical state of a proprietary dose of an anti-catabolic complex in ANABOLIC HALO. Lyophilization exploits the micro-molecular process of sublimation which is so advanced, it actually forces molecules within a structure to skip matter states and go directly from a solid to a gas."

    Lyophilization" is just the technical term for "freeze drying." It's a food processing technology that's been around for decades. Taster's Choice instant coffee is a classic example. "Sublimation" is nothing unique or mysterious?let alone "advanced"...it's what dry ice does when it "melts." Freeze drying helps to preserve compounds and/or structures that might be damaged by conventional drying processes (which utilize heat), but it doesn't magically alter their properties or make them more bioavailable.

    See what I mean? It's just an ordinary process that's been "dressed up" to look extraordinary.

    A similar trick's been done with the list of ingredients...

    Impressive, no?

    Well, actually...no, it isn't. Muscletech's "cryogenically-enhanced" formula is really designed to produce a brain freeze. It exploits a classic?but unreliable?assumption: "more is better." When you pick up the container and look at the list, you're supposed to be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of "stuff" you're getting.

    Before reaching for your wallet, however, there's a follow up question you should ask: how could the formula be optimized for that many ingredients?

    It's not just that there are 75 distinct compounds to juggle...it's also that many of them have no "track record" when it comes to improving muscle gains and/or performance.

    Thus, it's not hard to eliminate the superfluous and/or irrelevant compounds and focus on the ones known to be useful.

    Looking at the label, it pretty much comes down to this...there's good research to show that L-leucine (alone or in combination with other essential amino acids) can help kick start muscle protein synthesis after resistance exercise. Glutamine and beta-alanine have some merit, too. So does creatine.

    These are all basic, tried-and-true elements, regardless of the number of different forms they're provided in.

    As such, Anabolic Halo should work ok?provided it supplies enough of these compounds to do the job. Does it, though? Let's do a bit of math to find out.

    According to the label, one scoop of Anabolic Halo provides 24,832 mg of ingredients. This is a skosh under 25 grams, but we'll use this (slightly higher) figure to simplify things. Now, 25 g seems like a lot, but?as the nutritional info tells us?19 of those grams consist of carbs (dextrose monohydrate + maltodextrin).

    25 g - 19 g = 6 g.

    Uh-oh...I think we just figured out why the recommended dose is 3 scoops! However, 18 grams (6 g x 3) still doesn't leave us with a lot of "room," as ingredients like creatine and amino acids need to be taken in fairly large doses. Even Muscletech says so! For example:

    "A critical anabolic agent in ANABOLIC HALO can amplify muscle satellite cell concentration by over 100% in just 28 days!"

    This comes from a 2006 study on creatine monohydrate. The researchers reported a 111% increase in satellite cells per muscle fiber by the end of the 4th week (28th day) using a dose of 24 g x 7 day (loading phase) + 6 g/day maintenance).

    Does the recommended amount of Anabolic Halo supply 6 g of creatine? Since Muscletech iimplies Anabolic Halo will deliver results similar to the study, we'll assume the answer is "yes."

    18 g - 6 g = 12 g

    Moving right along...

    In a 21-day human clinical study at the University of Connecticut, a key musclebuilding compound in ANABOLIC HALO was shown to dramatically increase the number of pre-workout androgen receptors compared to a placebo. The tested compound was able to facilitate an improvement in free-testosterone bindability and utilization.

    This refers to a study on L-carnitine...simple, inexpensive L-carnitine. Does Anabolic Halo supply the full 2 g equivalent used in the study? Once again, we'll assume the answer is yes, since Muscletech uses it to claim Anabolic Halo achieves "greater free testosterone utilization."

    12 g - 2 g = 10 g.

    Likewise, research has shown that it takes a good 6 g of essential amino acids to trigger muscle protein synthesis; approx. 3 g beta-alanine to raise muscle carnosine stores; 2 g of L-glutamine to increase growth hormone levels; and...

    10 g - 6 g - 3 g - 2 g = ???

    Whoopsie! I think we just ran out of "room."

    Now, to be completely fair, we could tinker with these numbers a bit. For example, one 1999 study showed that taking as little as 3 g/day of creatine monohydrate for 28 days was an effective way to elevate muscle creatine stores. Needless to state, this ISN'T one of the studies Muscletech is citing, but it does indicate we can shave the doses down, here and there, without skimping on the "basics."

    It still doesn't leave much room for all the botanicals and extracts, however. Propolis extract, for example, is typically taken in ~500 mg doses; ditto Bacopa monnieri and Muira puama...so this stuff can add up pretty quickly.

    This leaves us with one inescapable conclusion: if Anabolic Halo is to work at all, then most of the latter are going to be "label decoration."

    Like I said, it's really a lot simpler than it looks...

    By now it should be clear that the apparent complexity is straight out of Marketing 101. In reality, Anabolic Halo has some merit, but it's expensive, and doesn't offer anything that you can't get by?say?mixing Purple Wraath or IntrAbolic with some dextrose and creatine. And for my money, I know which one I'd choose.

    Definitely didn't say that. I said why waste your time just being negative rather than posting a helpful answer or just clicking out of the thread.

    On the flip side of that, why not just research the product yourself and avoid making a thread like this that will undoubtedly attract the exact responses you dont want?

    And a thread like this is not "research".

    Ananbolic Halo is a matrix of muscle feeding ingredients to maximize muscle growth after workouts. It is not a PH but some people say it has helped them put on 10+ pounds of lean mass similar to when they used PH and test boosters. I heard it's a really cold sensation in the throat when you drink it so beware of this hardcore product.

    I ment there is more in Anabolic Halo then just creatine douche bag. It's still a ****ty product. I didn't read all of your post because I fell asleep half way through from the melatonin in anabolic halo. Oh wait, melatonin isn't in creatine!! Wow I guess it is more then creatine mono in anabolic halo. And I do a lot of research thanks.

    This is just a stupid product that no one should waste their money on... no reason for people to bash each other for not explaining what it does correctly because even Muscletech doesn't explain what it does in comprehensible terms.
