I am trying to build muscle and put some weight back on after suffering through chemo treatment. I have been seing a lot of ads for a muscle building supplement called Winnibol. Has anyone ever used Winnibol or can you recommend any other muscle builders / weight gainers? The ingredients for Winnibol are listed below. Do you think it is worth a try? Thanks
Winnibol Dietary Supplement
Amount per Serving %DV
Iodine (from kelp) 150 mcg 100
Methandrozolol Proprietary Blend 900 mg*
*Daily Value Not Established
If you are deficient in iodine, supplements might help, but you can probably get those a lot cheaper.
The first ingredient, alpha-GCP, is some nifty new nutrient that is claimed to improve brain function and learning. (the jury is still out.)
Bovine orchic is bull testicles, which probably contain a lot of testosterone. I'm not sure how much you'd absorb from eating them, but it sounds like a poor idea. Either it's useless or dangerous, not sure which.
You might do better with a regular protein powder, you can make shakes in a blender (I like the chocolate flavor powder with milk an a little peanut butter and maybe some fruit if I have it.) or just add it to soft foods to make them more nourishing.
