    What would be the ideal dosage, cost not being a factor?

    Why would that be the max dose? Would that equal to about 1500mg sesamin lignans?

    i mean of the actual lignans. and turns out our max dose recommended is closer to 5g, but i dont know why you'd need quite that much.

    i thought our max recommendation was 6 caps, whcih would be 2500mg, but i didnt realize it went up to 10 caps.

    i poop enough on 2.5g of sesamin lignans :hs: :o :embd:

    Not yet. I am though as I said in another thread leaner at a heavier weight.

    meh. I assume everything is the "placebo effect" unless it's drastic. It seemed to help some, but it's so hard to eyeball those 5% differences, amiright?

    The high levels of two chemicals (known as : Sesamin and Episesamin) powerfully activate and improve the metabolism of fat and sugar (called PPAR-alpha agonism). Research indicates these 2 chemicals:

    • Speed up Fat loss
    • Reduce Fat gain even when eating extra calories. If you are bulking or just plain overeating, it can mean more muscle and less fat.
    • Improve insulin sensitivity and better sugar metabolism
    • Increase mitochondrial activity inside your cells, and therefore provide more energy production
    • Protect the liver
    • Decrease triglycerides
    • Provides anti-inflammatory actions, protecting the brain, blood vessels and body from damaging inflammation
    • Lower LDL (bad) cholesterol
    • Raise HDL (good) cholesterol
    • Increase vitamin E levels. Studies indicate that vitamin E not only protects the body from oxidation that can cause premature aging, but
    also can elevate and/or restore testosterone levels


    What are PPAR's?

    PPAR's (or Peroxisome Proliferator Activated Receptors), are receptors in the nucleus of your cells. These receptors help control fat metabolism, energy balance, and glucose metabolism. Many pharmaceutical companies are working to develop PPAR based drugs, since they have huge implications with respect to obesity, liver disease, hypertension, cholesterol and diabetes.

    How does Sesamin increase fat loss?


    Sesamin and episesamin are chemicals that strongly activate PPAR-alpha, and increase mitochondrial and peroxisome activity. Basically this increases fatty acid metabolism significantly. Also, Sesamin increases the expression of a mitochondrial enzyme known as carnitine palmitoyl transferase. Carnitine palmitoyl tranferase is an enyme that shuttles fatty acids to the mitochondria, making more fatty acids available for use as energy. When you take Sesamin it can be like putting your fat on a one-way bus to the fat furnace. To top it off Sesamins activation of PPAR-alpha increases the production of "uncoupling proteins" (UCP's). Uncoupling proteins are kind of like DNP, except legal and safe. The amount of UCP's that you produce is one of the main factors in what your basal metabolism is. Electrons are transferred in the inner membrane of the mitochondria, and produce ATP in exchange . When this electron transport chain is "uncoupled" you burn energy (mostly fat) oxidatively (with oxygen), at an accelerated rate. So basically Sesamin and episesamin shift your metabolism considerably more in favor of utilizing fat, instead of storing it.

    How is this going to help me when Bulking?

    SesaPure will decrease your ability to store fat. Sesamin and episesamin reduce the production of the lipogenic enzymes FAS (fatty acid synthetase), acetyl-CoA carboxylase, ATP-citrate lyase, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase and sterol regulatory element binding protein-1 (SREBP-1). Basically it reduces your bodies ability to store fats.


    What will SesaPure do for my liver?


    Sesamin and episesamin have been shown to inhibit fatty vacuole formation in the liver that can occur with alcohol use/abuse. They do this by increasing liver fatty acid oxidation as well as by helping to efficiently metabolise alcohol.
    Sesamin and episesamin have been shown to raise aldehyde dehydrogenase levels by more than 3 fold. When alcohol is consumed, it enters cells and is broken down into a toxic compound known as acetaldehyde. An enzyme called aldehyde dehydrogenase 2 (ALDH2) converts the acetaldehyde into acetic acid, which is non-toxic and can be readily used by your body to provide energy. Basically its helps your body to "safely" metabolize alcohol. This is not to encourage alcohol use/abuse, but simply an example of how SesaPure helps protect your liver by making it more efficient.

    well since timber is the leanest guy on here, he should never ask a question about anything.. right?

    especially about a dosage of a type of product the company i work for sells.. great logic.

    this is why i'm not for "post your pic so we know who to listen to" threads.
    "walk the walk, talk the talk" but that doesn't mean someone who may be smaller or may have more bodyfat wont know ANYTHING.
