Epi-importance of fats when taking them?

Hey there

Currently on an epi cycle was just wondering as i saw a post by Adil suggesting that you consume you epi with a meal containg fats. Its the first time i had seen this regarding Epi. I did notice this was advice given for 3-AD. Just wondering if some one could explain the imprortance of these fats and if it applies to all DS of just specific ones?

thanx in advance

    Applies to all DS' and even some products that aren't DS'

    Essentially, it improves absorption

    even as little as 5g will do really

    To further increase the absorption.....have your serving of epi with 250ml+ of Pure grapefruit juice

    i heard that because it was methyl, that without food was better?

    there was a post like this on AM, n the they concluded that methyl without food, non-methyl with. obv. not sure if this is 100% correct, as adils logic if u think it thru makes perfect sense, not sure grapefruit is needed tho as again its a methyl and such pass the liver no prob.

    It is not the metabolism by the liver you are proventing when taking grapefruit juice, it is it's inhibition of Cytochrome P-450, CYP3A4 and CYP1A2. There are more it inhibits, but these are the main ones that I remember off the top of my head

    Adil bro, are you a doctor?

    You seem to have loads of knowledge, especially in regards to drug interactions
