Snake oil, noun.

Definition of SNAKE OIL

: any of various substances or mixtures sold (as by a traveling medicine show) as medicine usually without having had the claims of their medical worth or properties substantiated by scientific tests.

Re: LuRong seriously?

Totaly agree. It's just a fad but. I also read the TTMJ a few months ago. It seems to be a big deal at some CFs... I say waste of $$ and not enough known about it. Just looking for more insights.

Re: LuRong seriously?

I am pretty sure velvet antler is currently being used by some as an alternative to sterioids to avoid detection. It contains IGF-1, and has a similar effect to HGH?

Apparently it is gaining popularity and becoming an issue in pro sports:

Re: LuRong seriously?

Yes I've read about the steroid links also. The argument was that in pill form it can't be absorbed or that the IGF-1 is distroyed by acids.
I can't find any long term studies about it. Again just curiosity

Did you hear it is CF approved from the company selling it or from CFHQ? I doubt the latter!

Re: LuRong seriously?

I just "heard" and thought the same that it's highly unlikely.

This was a pretty hot topic when it came out a few years ago, Roy Williams and a few other big name football players admitted to use it for recovery. I am far from an expert, but the studies I read suggested that for it to be effective as HGH you would need an extremely high volume (much more than is recommended).

As with any "next best thing", proceed with caution, it is NOT regulated by the FDA so they have no independent research to support their claims.
