Metformin the wonder pill

Full muscles: Muscles will grow fuller when metformin is used with high carbohydrate diets.
Lack of fat storage: Metformin helps prevent fat from being deposited, so you get full benefits from carbohydrate heavy meals, without worrying to end up storing fat. This is why diabetics say they ‘lean out’ on this drug.
Insulin receptors: Metformin helps keep muscle cells sensitized for insulin that the body produces.
Appetite suppression: This drug will limit hunger, so it’s perfect for those doing a ketogenic diet. Furthermore, on re-feed days it makes a perfect addition to your carbohydrate heavy cheat day.
Pumps: Bodybuilders claim to get tremendous pumps when using metformin.
However, there are a fair amount of side effects you guys should be aware of.
These are some of the common side effects I have come accross from researching the drug.
Nausea, Vomiting, Gas, Bloating, Diarrhea, Appetite Suprression
The half life is listed as 4-6 hours. However, there are slow releasing extended tabs available. Bodybuilders should stick to the faster acting version as mentioned above.
Dosing for Bodybuilders
Full muscles can be achieved if 500-1000 milligrams (mgs) are taken within 1 hour after a large carbohydrate meal. The more carbohydrates there are in the meal, the higher the dosage should be taken, never exceeding 1500 mgs at a time. Nevertheless, metformin can be taken with as many high carb meals as you wish.
MONSTRO this is very good information, I think for everybody
