Our natural herbal weight lifting supplements and safety
Q: Is Strength Tonic safe? What are the side effects? Is it safe for teenagers?
My son took this for three months when he was 16. He worked out three times
a week for an hour with weights. He ate about twice the meat that he used
to. He gained 25 pounds of muscle in those three months. We know it was
muscle because he used a fat percent scale and his percent of fat went down
to compensate as his weight went up.
He had no side effects except he commented that when he DIDN'T work out he
would start to feel "horny".
I've taken the formula for several years, with two weeks off every three
months as is always recommended for any herbal. I'm 57 and can still dance
longer than anyone on the floor, including professional belly dancers. I've
have blood work done during this time which has shown no adverse effects on
my liver, which is the organ that clears all "toxins" from the blood, so I
feel safe in continuing my regime.
In the Dominican Republic, which is where the herbs are wildcrafted, people,
and especially men, drink daily amounts equal to an entire 2 oz bottle!
everyday for most of their post pubertal life, and (if they don't die from
accidents) live very healthy and exceptionally long lives.
I recommend taking just a few drops a day for three days to be sure you
don't have some unusual allergic reaction (which we've never heard of, but
who knows, everyone is unique). Then, a typical dose is 60 drops or one
dropperful per day, usually best a half hour before a workout.
