If you are looking to purchase it by the metric Ton you might want to checkout Alibaba.com.
They seem to have everything on that site.
Anyone up for a group order of 100 Kg of AAS powder  Grin

Yeah Phil looked pretty good.  He seemed very grounded and humble too, which is always great to see from someone that has achieved so much.

I got a media pass for this event and was able to get lots of photos of the event.  For the Off Season Phil looks pretty good!

You can see all photos here.  I got most of the competitors, but not all.

A person I trust, once told me to take some Gaba before bed ( teaspoon ), to increase night time GH.
Not sure what is its about that stuff, but it knocks me out.

if you like DMAA, then buy it in capsules and just add it to your favorite pre workout drink. 
If you really want the FDA to get off our backs make sure you vote for Ron Paul.  If he was to get elected there might be a day where you could buy Juice, Pre workout drinks, weed, ephedra, and coke all from the same vending machine in front of walmart.  Grin

agreed,  What is even worse is when they claim to not have any sugar, then you read the label and find the stuff is mostly fillers ( maltodextrin, glucose polymers ) both of which will spike insulin levels, which is exactly what you don't want if you are buying a sugar free product.
10  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Ravage by GNC on: December 05, 2011, 12:16:16 PM
basically on the label if it says Ephedra Alkaloids, its the good stuff.  If it says Ephedra, its crap.
11  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Ravage by GNC on: December 05, 2011, 12:14:20 PM
Black pepper is typically used to speed up absorption.  Most of the old school ephedra supplements had it too.
12  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: EAS 100% Whey Protein on: December 04, 2011, 05:10:17 PM
straight off their website
Ingredients:

Whey Protein Concentrate (Whey Protein Concentrate, Soy Lecithin), Natural & Artificial Flavors, Whey Protein Isolate, Acesulfame Potassium, and Sucralose.

Contains milk and soy ingredients. Manufactured in a facility that processes peanut ingredients.

I know from my experience in this industry flavoring makes up very little of the actual product, and they have more flavorings than Isolate, which leads me to believe the Isolate is on there for window dressing, and is not in any amount that will benefit the body.  They also use Acesulfame Potassium which is a cheap sweetener that is just as bad as all the other ( cancer causing crap ).  Then they have Sucralose on there once again for window dressing.  Most people will read that label and believe that the Sucralose is the main sweetener, but in truth its not.
13  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Ravage by GNC on: December 04, 2011, 04:59:49 PM
Agreed!
sometimes you can get lucky and still find it
Google for "Ephedra Alkaloids",  And then if you find some, call the store and have them physically double check that the bottles actually say that, and are not just the newer ( crap ) ones.
14  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Ravage by GNC on: December 04, 2011, 12:42:46 PM
Our Pre-Workout Drink ( ProSport Nutrition Octane ) has no sugar or fillers.  But you are correct most products on the market, are simply sugar and caffiene.  ( A Large Strong Coffee with sugar will do the same thing ) DMMA is the magic ingredient you find in Red Line, and Jack3d.  However it is banned by the world doping organization, so college and pro athletes should not take anything with it.  Its just matter of time before its banned just like the old Ephedra Alkaloids ( the Good stuff ).  We don't put it in Octane, but if you really want DMMA ( 1,3-Dimethylamylamine ), you can buy it in raw capsule form ( 100 caps x 40mg ) for under $20.  In my opinion 20mg is plenty if you are looking to add it to your current drink of choice.

15  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Can we say 20gr Amino powder=20gr Protein powder on: December 03, 2011, 04:07:48 PM
Aminos are > than Protein.

when protein enters your body it has to be broken down into amino acids in order for it to be utilized.
so if you eat 100g of protein, only a portion of that will be effectively broken down into aminos, and absorbed.  While the rest you will crap out.

Food > Protein > Aminos > Absorption

Aminos are thought to be nearly 100% absorption, since they don't require any additional digestive process to break down.

Aminos > Absorption

Its also important to note that not all amino acids are created equal.  Certain Aminos will yield greater results than others, and the prices can also vary alot.  You don't want to buy an Amino Powder just because it says it has a certain amino.  Many powders will put just enough in for window dressing, although it will provide no benefit since the grams are too low.  Aminos are not cheap, especially the good ones, so beware when you see a container of Aminos selling for almost nothing, as they are likely packing it with the cheap ones.

Make sure you do your homework on the various aminos, and understand the proper ratios, before you go out and just buy a tub because it says aminos on the label.

I agree with Bigbobs.
No Preworkout drink is going to magically get you more cut.  The whole premise has always been a good pre workout drink will get you off your ASS and into the gym.  After that it comes down to lifestyle. 
17  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Body Fortress - Whey Isolate on: November 27, 2011, 01:17:30 PM
Companies advertise in publications because they are trying to build brand / product awareness, or because they think there is a return on investment, not because they are trying to support the industry.  You should never buy a supplement because of advertisements or some YouTube Testimonial.  Do your own research!

I recommend you read the nutrition facts for your product.
Its available on their website.

Ingredients: Whey Protein Isolate, Super Recovery
Blend (L-Glutamine, L-Taurine, L-Arginine, L-Alanine,
L-Lysine, L-Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine), Cocoa
(processed with Alkali), Natural Flavors, Soy Lecithin,
Cellulose Gum, Xanthan Gum, Acesulfame Potassium,
Carrageenan, Sucralose.
Contains milk, soy and wheat ingredients.

I want to point one very important ingredient to you.
Acesulfame Potassium is an artificial sweetener, that has negative side effects ( spikes insulin ), and is no better than all the other sweeteners.  Yes your product has some sucralose, but the fact that it has any Acesulfame Potassium, leads me to believe that the Sucralose is used for window dressing on the label.  Companies often use sweeteners other than Sucralose because of costs.  

One other thing to be aware of is Soy will cause an increase in estrogen, not a good thing if you are trying to get some definition.
18  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: ever use spironolactone. on: November 18, 2011, 02:59:39 AM
Get yourself some Biotin, it will make your hair grow fast and thick.
its cheap, you can get it at walmart in the vitamin section.
Or switch your energy drink to what I drink, as it already has the biotin in it.
19  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: Noxplode BSN on: November 02, 2011, 10:06:38 AM
I used No-Explode in the past, taste was nasty. It gave me energy in higher dosages, but it was loaded with fillers so don't count on it to help you burn fat.  Obviously everyone knows what I use.  Its up to everyone to decide what product best fits into their lifestyle and budget.  I put together a comparison chart to help people compare the various pre-workout drinks
http://prosportnutrition.net/octane-energy-drink-side-by-side-comparison.aspx.

I made this chart a while back, so if anyone notices any errors in the numbers let me know, some companies might have updated their formulas.

I have used Novedex XT as well.  And it did work, but I stopped taking it because of the side effects. My Libido went from normal to nothing.  However another buddy of mine took it and said he felt like 18 again.

For the most part I agree with you. If a pill doesn't have REAL EPHEDRA its not going to work.
Real ephedra is pretty hard to find these days.

I have switched to pre-workout powders
Though I do still have a small stash of REAL Ephedra for Days when I just need to get shit down. ( I stocked up before the ban )
23  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Rumor? Novadex by Gaspari Pulled? on: October 23, 2010, 04:19:43 PM
A buddy of mine told me this the other night.  Granted I tried Novadex a few times and the stuff definitely worked.  Was it really pulled from the market?
24  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: BSN NO-Xplode Caffiene Free Version coming on: October 22, 2010, 06:01:46 PM
If its the same product ( just without caffeine ), then I don't see it being worth much.  One of the main draws of Pre Workout drinks is the energy rush ( high ).  Unfortunately energy drinks are not much different than drugs, as that high is what keeps many coming back for more.
25  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Re: NO-Xplode on: October 18, 2010, 08:11:17 PM
I have tried No-Xplode, and it was good, but didn't care for the carbs.
Both Nano-vapor and Xo-Xplode are loaded with carbs.

Interesting that Hemo-Rage doesn't disclose how much caffeine they put in it.
Plus more than 50% of each scoop is carbs.
