Lean Xtreme 90 Caps by Designer Supplements
Lean Xtreme is a patent-pending formula used to combat cortisol (the
stress hormone). High cortisol causes fat gain, muscle-loss, and
destroys "on-cycle" gains. Lean Xtreme is a critical support of
healthy diets and a PCT (post-cycle therapy) plan.
Lean Xtreme stacks well with
- Glucophase XR for a non-stimulating cutting stack.
- Melting Point for a highly effective and synergistic cutting
- Melting Point and Glucophase XR for an unparalleled fat melting
- Rebound Reloaded to create an unbeatable post-cycle therapy
Lean Xtreme Directions
As a dietary supplement, take 1-2 capsules 2-3 times per day. Take one
serving upon waking and the last right before bed.
Lean Xtreme Warnings
Because of the mild anti-estrogen propeties of 7-OH, use of this product
by females may decrease the effectiveness of oral and transdermal contraceptives
(A.K.A. "The Pill" and "The Patch"). If you normally rely on oral or
transdermal contraceptives as your only method of birth control, you
should use an additional form of birth control, such as condoms, to help
prevent pregnancy while using this product. Children should not use this
product without parental supervision. Always consult a physician before
usinf this or any other dietary supplement.
Lean Xtreme FAQ
Q: Does Lean Xtreme need to be cycled?
A: No, but like all supplements, we recommend you cycle in and out of
use to maintain enzyme responsiveness and for general economical reasoning.
Q: What is the recommended dosing for Lean Xtreme?
A: This is not something set in stone because 7-OH, the active in Lean
Xtreme, affects some people more readily than others. For instance,
some people may require 4-5 caps per day to get most benefit, whereas
other may be overly sensitive and only require 2-3 caps per day. We
generally recommend everyone using Lean Xtreme for the first time begin
with 2-3 caps and increase or reduce dosing accordingly.
Q: I'm using 4 caps of Lean Xtreme a day and I'm not noticing sore joints.
Does this mean I'm a non-responder?
A: Not at all. You must realise that you want the benefits of reduced
cortisol, but not the side effects of such an environment. If you are
experiencing sore joints and the like, then you're taking too much Lean
Xtreme, so reduce your dosing accordingly. You want the positives, not
Q: What is a good protocol for Lean Xtreme?
A: As noted above, dosing may vary among individuals, so the following
is a basic 3 caps per day layout:
1 cap upon waking, 1 cap before training, 1 cap before bed.
Those who wish to bump dosing to 4-5 caps per day should make the morning
dose 2 caps and/or the pre-training dose 2 caps.
Q: I'm bulking. What benefit does Lean Xtreme have to offer? And what
dosing protocol is relevant for me in this situation?
A: As I'm sure you've already read the write-up available on the website,
we'll reiterate the benefits as cortisol control (and thus, muscle retention)
and reduction is unwanted fat gain, given a well regulated diet. Normally
during the bulking environment, cortisol is not considered an issue due
to the net anabolic effect, however it can still be considered as a two
steps forward, one step back approach. Making use of Lean Xtreme during
bulking phases removes the one step back, allowing you progress at an
Insulin, released by the body in response to carbohydrate and protein
intake, is generally antagonistic with cortisol, so during bulking cortisol
is less of an issue (as noted) so generally, we do not recommend the
same dosing procedure. 1-2 caps per day - 1 upon waking and 1 before
training - should prove to be an excellent tool during bulking season.
Q: I've heard LX can affect your thyroid. How does it do this?
A: Indirectly, through cortisol suppression, 7-OH can help re-establish
typical levels of thyroid output.
Basically, when you diet (or you're under great stress/depression), your
adrenal gland output reduces as your body shuts down systems in order
to preserve your life (stimulant [ab]use can also exhaust the adrenals,
as can the PCT environment when testosterone levels are generally low).
This effects thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and reduces thyroid output.
By inhibiting the enzyme that stimulates cortisol, you can counter this
effect so thyroid output is resumed to normal levels.
Q: Can I use Lean Xtreme during my post-cycle therapy (PCT) plan?
A: You most certainly can and should. Coming off prohormones or androgens
leaves your own testosterone production reduced (sometimes quite significantly),
and during times of low testosterone, cortisol tends to run havoc so
having an aid to help reduce this negative aspect would be ideal. Lean
Xtreme stacks incredibly well with Rebound XT for a well-rounded PCT
Q: Given that Lean Xtreme can raise thyroid levels, would Lean Xtreme
during PCT (post-cycle therapy) for an ectomorph be a bad idea? Wouldn't
you want a reduced thyroid output if you're having trouble maintaining
A: Only if they're hyperthyroid. Basically, an ectomorph should get their
cells to convince themselves that they are more endomorphic. This effect
can be achieved via means of various supplements which goes beyond the
scope of this QA.
Q: Is it ok for women, particularly older women, to take this? Just
asking because on the bottle I believe it says "not intended for women
A: There is indeed. This is because there are anti-estrogenic properties
in 7-OH so it can effect menstrual cycles and birth control, so it's
a good idea for sexually-active women to use condoms.Other than that,
it is cool.
Q: I have a medical condition, is it ok for me to use Lean Xtreme?
A: Always check with your GP/physician before using the product.
