    AFAIK cascara is not adsorbent and can help metabolism via quinones. However, if taken orally, cascara can have a laxative effect. That is why i would try not to take it with meds or supps. Sorry to hijack this thread!

    I'm not sure if this is Lanosterol, or the fact I've been hitting the thyroid a bit more regularly, but...

    A few years ago I was in a car accident and had some whiplash. I got most of the function of my neck and shoulders back, but I never managed to get entirely pain free or fluid movement there. Recently these areas started really hurting but also freeing up. The frozen shoulder I experienced has become a lot looser and more mobile, I'm more aware of the position of my neck, which when I move I can hear the crinkling of synovial garbage that's been there for quite some time. A lot of the discomfort is gone. I'm aware that hypothyroidism is associated with a lot of joint issues, but I've taken thyroid before and not got these results, so I think it's at least in part the lanosterol.

    Is anyone else experiencing changes in joint mobility from this stuff?

    How much Lanosterol and thyroid are you taking?

    10mg lanosterol, and between two and three drops of tyromix with my morning and evening meals.

    So something that reversed protein aggregation in neurodegenerative diseases could possibly be good news for people who suffer from Alzheimer's or some other type of dementia related conditions - theoretically speaking of course - on a purely theoretical basis you understand?

    Thanks and do you get any sleep disturbances at all?

    I mentioned this in the very post you quoted. Look at the 5th line from the top.

    Seems like this thread has stalled out. I just started trying this out. Want to wait until I have more experience before I respond on that.

    What dosage (and how) are people using?

    Most people who reported using lanosterol seem to be sticking to the 5mg - 8mg amount daily. It seems to have a sedating and thermogenic effects on those amounts.

    I'm ready for at least a preliminary report.

    I started with one drop at night. I liked that, so I added a drop in the morning. I found that it was mildly sedating in the morning. Not groggy, just that feeling of needing a cup of coffee.

    So I started 2 drops at night. I liked that. So I switched to 3 drops at night. I am liking that but will stick with it for a week or so before I up it again.

    So, what do I like? I have to say, I haven't seen any thermogenic effects. I am going to bed shortly afterwards and it has been colder at night. So maybe I sleep through it.

    Or, maybe like thyroid, if it lowers cortisol, while having other thermogenic qualities, you can still get a net reduction in temp. I haven't had labs, but I would have to say anecdotally that it has had a significant impact on cortisol. I'm feeling colder. While many on here strive to feel warmer, I strive to feel colder (appropriate to climate). Along with that has come calmer, clearer headed, more energy, more endurance. I would also say quite clearly symptoms of higher T (voice, muscle, sexual). That may be secondary to reduced cortisol rather than a primary effect. So don't know if others are going to see that or not.

    Ongoing experiment. If I get to 5mg or experience anything else interesting, I'll let you know.

    @haidut would you say this is the strongest anti-cortisol of your products?

    Nope, not the strongest. I think Lapodin, Progestene, Cyproheptadine and Diamant would be up there.
    Thanks for the feedback though! Some people reported nootropic effect. Let me know if you notice improved memory, cognition and creativity.

    Most definitely. "Calmer, clearer headed, more energy" are partly my way of experiencing nootropic effects. Creativity is pretty subjective, but I have found that I have renewed enthusiasm for my work and am trying to solve problems that weren't stimulating me to act before.

    Subject got a bad concussion one year ago and still has post concussion symptoms, so thought this product was made for him.

    Took 5 drops around eye and temple, and 4 drops orally. Noticed what seemed to be a lifting of brain fog within 12 minutes. Temperature went up .4 degrees, and felt slightly sleepy off and on. Also there was a cessation of anger and racing thoughts, felt more connected to his environment. He had second thoughts of his recent visual art expressions of hatred and thought they might be hurtful. This is not normal.

    Subject has been writing reviews for Idealabs products for the past half hour, and has now been on substance for over an hour. Seems to have good focus, writing product reviews normally isn't a common activity for subject, lol.

    Good for you!

    I will caution that 9 drops is a large dose. Just alerting you to keep awareness of side effects. I have no clue if its too large or not.

    It definitely has a mild sedative effect for me too. Not in a "knock you out" kind of way. Just in a "I'm ready to go to bed and sleep nicely for 8 hours" kind of way. I'm finding that taking once/day (bedtime) is just fine for me with no noticeable curtailment of benefits 23.5 hrs later.

    @managing @aarfai @Spokey Are your rats taking it orally or transdermally? if taken both ways, have they preferred one over the other?

    Transdermal. Contrary to @aarfai I would say it has significantly enhanced my sleep.

    I am now on 4 drops. I can't tell whether I like 4 better than 3 yet. Only weird thing I've seen is shortly after applying to my forearms, I'll get tingling and a muscle spasm somewhere on that arm. It only last for a few minutes.

    Is there anything about Lanosterol that would enhance thyroid production? Since I started applying, I've been getting an "overstimulated" feeling from Thyroid (Tyromix) sometimes.

    It is an uncoupler of metabolism, as mentioned in the original thread. Thyroid is also an uncoupler. So, combined they may have even stronger effects and raise pulse, temp to an uncomfortable level. So, maybe best to use separately or use lower doses when used together. The latter should be a good thing as bottles would last longer and risk of side effects is lower with smaller doses.
