Designed to help the serious athlete optimize mitochondrial biogenesis, hormone level ratios, and support oxygen rich blood cells during athletic performance and recovery, this stimulant-free formula means more endurance, power, and better recovery without pro-hormones or grey area compounds. No hormones means no post-cycle therapy, depression, or other risks associated with exogenous hormonal ingestion.

Cissus is a natural, cutting-edge anti-cortisol / anti-catabolic compound that has taken the supplement industry by storm. While more research is needed on the exact mechanism of it's anti-catabolic activity, we do know that the phytoconstituents are active and effective, improving the healing rate of tendons and ligaments (tendons and ligament function is essential for weightlifting strength and form). Acting as a natural glucocorticoid antagonist, Cissus may also have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.

Carnitine was added to the formula for it's numerous benefits, including recovery from intense training and reduced DOMS. When part of a CONTROLLED LABS stack / combo you have the ability to train harder AND more often. Users have reported enhanced energy, alertness, cholesterol levels, and fat utilization leading to a recomp effect. Another mechanism of action may be that carnitine enhances our 100% natural hormone levels during training including insulin-like growth factor.

Carao and Catuaba extracts work in synergy with other ingredients to help the target muscle group receive more oxygen, improving performance and strength. As a bonus, many users report a noticeable increase in libido.

Quercetin and Ginkgo Biloba (used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine) provide a stimulant-free performance boost by increasing oxygen and circulation, giving the serious athlete a unique alternative to stimulant-based products. As a bonus, over time the formula may help support a healthy immune / respiratory system with potent anti-oxidant, anti-viral, and anti-allergen properties. Sodium Bicarbonate acting as a hydrogen buffer, helps reduce fatigue during training and enhance recovery between sets.... experience jitter-free endurance and stamina like never before.

lcariin, Grape Seed Extract, Griffonia Simplicifolia Extract, Apigenin, Luteolin and Niacin work in synergy to help increase bloodflow, natural growth hormone levels, and circulating levels of testosterone while keeping estrogen under control. The formula may even help with cholesterol ratio (cholesterol is the building block for testosterone).

Train harder than ever, push past a plateau, and recover fast.... with Blue GENE™



Where can I purchase Blue GENE™ and how much does it cost ?


Internet retailers will have the best prices (around $40 - $50):
http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/clabs/clabs.htm

How many servings per bottle ?


30

How many servings per day ?


1 serving [5 tabs]

How big are the tabs ?


About the same size as Orange TRIad tablets (slightly larger than a 00 size capsule)

Should I take it every day (workout days and off days ?)


For best results, yes.

So... how many days will each bottle last ?


30

Since it's all natural and legal, why should I be at least 21 to use this product ?


With hormone levels already optimal for lean mass, those under 21-25 years old may not get the best results from Blue GENE™ and we want you to get the best results !

Does Blue GENE™ replace proper nutrition, training, and cardio ?


No

Is Blue GENE™ more of a staple / basic product or more of a optional / "icing on the cake" addition to my CONTROLLED LABS stack ?


Icing on the cake

Does Blue GENE™ replace creatine products like Green BULGE™ / Green MAGnitude™ ?


No, it should be used along with your creatine product

What other "basic" supplements do you recommend while taking Blue GENE™ ?


Orange TRIAD™
Fishoil / EFA
Whey Protein
Green BULGE™ / Green MAGnitude™
Plenty of water

No

Does it matter what time of day I take the tabs ?


1+ hours pre-workout if possible

I'm on medication or may have a health condition, should I take Blue GENE™ ?


Ask your doctor before taking Blue GENE™ ?

Is it necessary to cycle Blue GENE™ ?


We generally recommend that you cycle off Blue GENE™ every 8 weeks, for an “OFF” period of 2 to 4 weeks.

Should I "taper" the Blue GENE™ dosage up and down ?


Optional, but not a bad idea.

Should I ever exceed the recommended Blue GENE™ dosage ?


Absolutely not.

I'm a tested athlete, is there any chance I could get in trouble for taking Blue GENE™ ?


If YOUR specific organization bans ANY / ALL blood oxygen enhancers or volumizers, it is theoretically possible.

What are some good indications that I'm losing fat or gaining lean mass while on Blue GENE™ ?


Mirror / Appearance
Measurements / Bodyfat caliper
Bodyweight / Strength


I've read this FAQ completely, and I still have a question or concern.. what should I do ?

This product looks very interesting and unique! I'm somewhat surprised at the lack of cordyceps in the formula. It seems like that added on top of the other ingredients would only enhance the effects. Can I ask why you mention increased estrogen in the FAQ? Based on the ingredients, I don't see anything that would hint at that at all.

speechless. absolutely speechless. I love how companies are looking at ALTERNATIVE solutions to optimizing hormones safetly and natural (IE prohormones/prosteroids/etc)

I am loving this formula. I love how it addresses the oxygen/endurance issue of resistance training - many products seem so focused on optimizing test (which is important of course) but this really address a unique idea in the scheme of things

cant wait to try. I think I will be ordering 2 bottles tomorrow :-)

So, was the Catuaba added for the exhaustion reducing/endurance enhancing effects? I only ask because I had recently looked into this ingredient for it's nootropic value, so I was suprised (but delighted) to see it. One of the very UNDERused ingredients in BB'ing!

And umm, with the Cassis Grandis.. my wife better start putting out or I'm going to be in teh troubles!

Yea the whole formula was tweaked, tweaked, and tweaked again. Having it in convenient tablets will be a HUGE plus.

It looks great.
The cissus is great. I tried a bottle of Cissus RX, which cost me 35$ for 3 weeks and it really help my shoulder after the dislocation.

Since it must be taken 1 hour pre-workout, do we have to take it on an empty stomach?

I actually had the same question since I am ordering a pretty big stack of supps for September and LX is one of them.

Exciting product by the way! I have been looking for something like this. I considered a test booster (Activate Xtreme) but was wary to get it and I couldn't justify paying that much for something I was not enthused with. I think a hormone optimizing formula would be more up my alley. Plus it's made by you guys so I KNOW it will be quality stuff.

I've been "on the poor side", and in that scenario I would save / plan for the unexpected... not invest in supps.

It's one of the best recovery supplements I have ever used.




-Pump/Muscle Fullness

My muscle pump and fullness really stood out with Blue Gene. It was evident throughout the day and, for the most part, really never went away.

8.5/10

- Strength

My strength definately increased using Blue Gene. I set some personal records on some exercises.

8.0/10

- Endurance/Recovery

My endurance & recovery between exercises/sets had an increase while using Blue Gene.

8.0/10

- DOMS

DOMS were slightly reduced while using Blue Gene.

7.5/10

-Other Thoughts:

The only negative thing about Blue Gene is that it made my tongue turn blue.:eek:

The health benefits alone from some of these ingredients are well worth considering when you want to make bodybuilding a lifestyle, not a fad.

Personal Records I hit throughout my Log

Deadlifts: 455 x 4
Decline Dumbbell Bench: 90 x 8


OVERALL

I loved using Blue Gene and I would consider using this again in the future. I was able to take my training to a new level. This is a product that anyone would benefit from using it!!

30 Days of Blue GENE

Thank you Controlled Labs for the opportunity and the confidence to test your product, Blue GENE. A special thanks to everyone who frequented my log and kept it encouraging, fun, informational and on many occasions completely random.

First and foremost, I’ll address those who have a heightened inclination toward scrutiny and skepticism, which is perfectly okay. I can clarify some logistical concerns to pre-empt scrutiny, but I can’t do anything to defy skepticism, I’ll just hope you take my assertions to be integral and valid.

I wanted to test Blue GENE’S ability to effect gym performance, as performance is one of the product’s mission statements. Improved gym performance can have a correlation with an improved physique, therefore, I thought it a worthy cause to assess. A week prior to beginning my Blue GENE run, I assessed my muscle endurance with a “heavy” endurance bout, and by heavy, I mean I used a weight where my repetitions can exceed 15, but in no way would I be able to achieve 30. I chose the 100lbs Dumbbells.

Furthermore, I performed a strength assessment the week prior to my Blue GENE run. For strength, I performed the 295lbs Flat Bench Press. A good strength building range consists of using a weight that can be pushed 4-6 times, upwards of 7-8.

I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, and therefore, I am aware of the many mediating variables that may effect the outcome of my performance assessments. Therefore, I wanted to pre-empt some logistical scrutiny involving my assessments. I realize that a manipulation of diet alone, could produce a significant influence over my performance-ability over the span of a month. Therefore, I did not alter my diet in any specific fashion. My dietary habits and macro intake remained unchanged from the month prior to my Blue GENE experience and the month during my Blue GENE experience. If there were any alterations to my diet, it would have been an alteration that would have been more so detrimental, as there was a week and a half where I had virtually no appetite, as a result of some life stressors. Reality happens.

Also, training style would have a truly significant impact on performance-ability. Had I focused on strength lifting and CNS stimulating routines, my strength results would inevitably increase. Had I focused on exciting a muscular endurance response, my endurance would inevitably increase. If the customer base were predominantly athletes, this might have been a valid approach. However, most of us here are bodybuilders and for the most part, our aim is ultimately hypertrophy. Therefore, I geared my workouts toward the acclamation of the masses, moderately heavy weight, fairly high in volume, just like I would and anyone of us would do, for the most part, when maximal hypertrophy is the primary goal.

I wanted my experience to reflect how Blue GENE would effect the average joe, per se, and how Blue GENE may have an influence over strength and endurance throughout the course of the average lifter, and by average, I mean those of us who body build, not strength train or endurance train.

I want to reiterate that I did not train or eat in a fashion that would inherently result in the improved performance of my assessments. There was no specificity toward strength lifting, or endurance building. I was first and foremost a bodybuilder this month, as I am most of the months throughout the year.

Personal Assessment of Blue GENE.

1. What was most notable in terms of gym performance was muscle endurance and general stamina. My workout partner, who is virtually a mirror image of myself performance wise, except a bit stronger (but our strength comparisons can teeter totter), was a good indicator of the positive effects I was experiencing on Blue GENE. Around week two, I began to outperform him in both strength and endurance, meaning, I was lifting more weight then he was and in occasions where the weights that we were lifting were even in load, I could pull off more reps. Had this been a single occasion, or even a back & forth phenomenon, I would have considered it part of our cycle. Sometimes I perform better in the gym and sometimes he performs better in the gym. However, my superior performance was consistently so and the degree at which I was excelling beyond him was growing and growing in margin.

By week three, my superior performance was so prevalent and impressive, that I actually ordered my own bottle from Nutraplanet to continue Blue GENE once my official 30 day sponsorship ended.

2. The second most notable aspect about my Blue GENE experience was an insane boost in my libido. I actually had never experienced such a libido boost on anything I’ve ever taken. However, this libido boost reached a pinnacle by the end of week two and my libido began to diminish until I reached normalcy again.

3. Thirdly, I experienced sporadic instances of Stim like focus. This did not occur every time, but the times it did, the best way I can describe it is when you’re on a Stim and you’re eyes seem to be pulled open and everywhere you look, it feels as though you are staring very intently. It was a Stim like focus, but without the Stim sensations. My general focus was consistently increased, but I did not attain this Stim like level focus every time. Perhaps 10-15 times to this degree in my 30 day experience.

Something worth noting:

- In my experience, Blue GENE did not perpetuate any pre-gym symptoms. I was not pre-amped to go into the gym, no acute boost of energy, nor did the focus set in “pre-gym.” For me, Blue GENE required some waking up. Once the blood got moving, all the symptoms would manifest and manifest in multitudes. You can feel it “turn on” once you’ve warmed up and then you can feel it setting in quite overwhelmingly.

Video Assessment

As mentioned above. I performed a pre-cycle muscle endurance and muscle strength assessment and at the end of the cycle, I performed a post-cycle muscle endurance and muscle strength assessment.

Important Note: During my pre-cycle assessments, I weighed 214lbs-216lbs. During my post-cycle assessments, I weighed 211lbs. Factors that could have effected my weight loss could be my extended workouts. As my run progressed, my muscle endurance and general stamina continued to be enhanced, which lead to longer and even more intense workouts, which I will post beneath.

As you were able to observe, I had a significant improvement in muscle endurance, however, my muscle strength suffered by 1 rep. Initially, I was a little disappointed, however, to bring these results into perspective, my muscle endurance and general stamina reflected in my workouts in a much more significant manner then an increase in strength. I will post three progressive chest workout days, where you can observe my increasing ability to push more and push harder, which ultimately, is the greater factor in muscle hypertrophy. Please take note that I did not intend on doing this three day comparison from the beginning, otherwise, obviously, I could have intentionally set it up to cater to signs of progression.

Most predominantly, notice the increase in my general stamina and muscle endurance, which was reflected by total reps performed. Also, Greatest Free Weight Effort went up, which is a direct implication of strength increase. However, that strength increase did not translate when I used 295lbs, as oppose to my normal peak weight of 275lbs.

Most sponsored loggers seem to carry an obligatory closing statement, that states the users enjoyment and willingness to use the product in the future. I took it a step further and bought my own bottle of Blue GENE for continued use, following my official log. I hope that carries some weight as to the testament of my enjoyment of this product.

For those of you already following my log, I will continue my log with the Blue GENE & Blue UP Stack. I appreciate your guys inputs and personalities and I welcome anyone else. Thank you, Controlled Labs.

Hi All,

I just started using blue gene and took it 2 days in a row, just one pill before working out as advised by the package. Both times I had an upset stomach and was just curious if anyone else has seen similar effects. Personally, I don't care and can push through, but the stomach issues have only been around my workouts each day and I've been fine the rest of the day. Hopefully I get used to it and can up the dosage and feel the effects.

TIA,
Keith

I just got my bottles of blue up/blue gene yesterday, and had a few questions:

1) Can I space out the 5 blue gene tabs throughout the day instead of taking them all at once? Or is there a particular reason why it has to be taken 1 hour pre-workout?

Since there's no stimulants, just didn't see any reason why it had to be spaced out.

2) Is there any reason why it can't be taken with meals, or is this like NO products that should be taken on an empty stomach.

Had the same basic questions about blue up (stim-free version).

1) its best to take all 5 preworkout together.

2) you will get better effects if you just have a small carb meal like a rice cake or granola be preworkout. you shouldn't consume a lot of protein or fat immediately prior to a workout

No nothing like that, thankfully. I don't think I'd do it if it was.

Many schools do it differently, but generally we do 2 years of intense classes - undergrad seems like a joke to me now haha. Then we do 2 years of rotations (which is like 6 weeks of shadowing the same doctor(s) everyday). At that point you graduate with your degree (DO or MD). Then you have to do internship/residency in whichever specialty you want to do (this is more hands on than rotations and can range from 3-5 years). At that point if you want to further specialize you could do a fellowship. (For example, someone who wanted to be a cardiologist would have to do an Internal Medicine residency and a Cardiology fellowship).

So basically, I'll have a real life in almost decade. Yay! :D

Question about Blue Gene...I have it now and I notice it suggests trying just 1 the first time to assess tolerance...I've taken many different kinds of supps before and never had an adverse reaction. The ingredients do not seem that "exotic" so do you think based on this that it would be ok for me to start with the regular dosage? I less want to do this for fast effects and more because it throws off the count in the bottle for future dosage purposes; I'd have to take 4 instead of 5 at some point.

What "adverse reaction" could I have, anyway?

this should be done every time you take a new supp (or food for that matter), you never know what you could be allergic to, so its best to start low as the reaction will be lessened with a smaller dose. FYI we have never had even one complaint of an allergic reaction, but best to err on the side of caution

That's a good stack you have there. I love BG, but if you're tight on funds and say stick with what you have and eat, eat, eat. And keep hittin the weights. But BG benefits anyone that uses it.

Yeah, I posted some in the logs section, but I've had to put off my training right now (as well as my supplements), because I'm dealing with my dad coming out of major reconstructive leg surgery and I need to help him out, work, and get ready to move to goto a new school in three weeks. So once this gets settled down, I'm going to go on a serious cut from my bf now (I'm guessing around 25-30%, down to 12-15%.

Lol, I didn't set the bar too high because I know it's going to be hard to get down even to where I want to be. But my goal is that by December, I hope to look like a completely different person when I come back for Christmas from school. I kinda want to have that freakish sort of transition; the one that impresses people lol.

when you do this, be sure to where a CL shirt and video tape it, it would make a great commercial imo.

w/ BG is it best to take on an empty stomach? if so how does one fit it in? say i work out at 12, at 11:30 i take WF/GM, at 11 I take BG, and at 10:30 i take a protein shake.

THis is the second time it has happened to me, and I have gone through about 2.5 bottles. Anybody know why it's caused? I take BG when i first wake up on an empty stomach...about 15-20 min in my face/arms start tingling and feeling like they are on fire, the skin itself turns a rashy red color, kind of splotchy, no bumps just red. The last time it happened I didn't really associate it with BG b/c i was going mountain biking, was in the mountains, had a bug bite on me and everyone else kind of associated it with the bug bite, took some benadryl went away almost instantly. today i have only taken BG and it happened again.

I never get sick, but when I feel like I might be starting to come down with something, I get off most supps and I take some time off from the gym (still stay active, just no weights).

Try both ways on off days, let me know if you notice a difference.

If you are enjoying the libido boost from it, you may want to take 5 pills first thing in the AM, or 5 at once about 1 hour pre-activity. :flash:

I picked this up during the wc sale and tried a couple (only 2 pills) preworkout for kicks.

Maybe it was a fluke, but I'm massively impressed by it's effects. I had sharper focus, better mood, more and energy + endurance. What I least expected was my allergies and asthmatic symptoms to be severely curbed. If this continues, I'll be using this supp for a while. (Not sure if the new formula has the same effects for me, though).

The very first time you take it, assess your tolerance (per the label)

After that I would take the dose with your PBJ if possible. If you are very sensitive (skin feels hot etc...) try splitting up the dose throughout the day... just as effective (long term results).
