Winnibol Muscle Building Supplement

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

Re: Winnibol Muscle Building Supplement

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.

Re: Winnibol Muscle Building Supplement

sounds like they're trying to evince an association with two anabolic steriods: Winstrol and Dianabol

If "bovine orchic" worked, you probably couldn't find any because teen boys (say from 12 to 27) would have snapped up the entire worlds' supply.

I have see arginine being advertised for use in cachexia, along with glutamine.

As mentioned, you can get any/all of that cheaper -especially arginine & glutamine powders
