What are your guys on this product here, http://www.bulknutrition.com/?products_id=1608
Heard some ancedotal talk about it. Seems like an offshoot of DHEA/70XO. Heard that it may lower test, and the benefits are that it lowers cortisol improves T3.

Venom just from the reviews on the site most people were not happy with the results. Only one person claimed they lost 2.5 inches off of there waist.

Designer Supplements has a solid line of products- I've used their Glucophase XR (K-R-ALA product with some other ingredients) and am currently using Melting Point (a tetradecylthioacetic product meant to serve as a potent PPAR agonist).
Recently I've been looking into the differences between visceral adipose tissue and subcutaneous adipose tissue and it may just be me, but I suspect that one of the big contributing factors for my lack of ab definition at even relatively low body fat levels is from a relatively high proportion of VAT. I may be totally off in my thinking though, heh. In any case, since cortisol is directly related to VAT storage, 7-OH products like Lean Extreme, which claim to reduce cortisol and affect VAT storage, seem pretty interesting. A couple years back there was a highly popular 7-OXO transdermal by Avant Labs called Ab-Solved. The feedback on the product was resoundingly positive but unfortunately production was discontinued since the patent holder 7-OXO didn't want it put in a transdermal delivery system. People say that oral 7-OXO pales in comparison to the transdermal approach but apparently 7-OH holds some promise. I'm considering giving it a spin when I start dieting down a little bit in February, but we'll see.

Thanks for the feedback!
Great research, XenoWang. I looked into several cortisol inhibitors, and this one seemed the safest; the only side effect I seen was reduced test; though, there are conflicting studies. There is another one called SNS reduce, but I have heard additional side effects from using that.
Would be great if something like this worked! Keeping cortisol levels at bay on a calorie restricted diet, and using hours of cardio is incredibly difficult.

From what I've seen, SNS Reduce XT and DS Lean Extreme contain essentially the same primary ingredient (7-OH). Reduce lists the alpha and beta forms of 7-OH whereas I'm not sure whether Lean Extreme contains both or only one component.

You are right, and "reduce" is actually cheaper at several places.
I actually meant "retain".
