REDCON1 HALO Review: Does It Promote Lean Muscle Growth?
Halo is probably the most popular muscle builder in the REDCON1 product range and is said to promote lean muscle mass.
It's not just a regular muscle builder, it's a natural plant anabolic and contains the popular plant extract laxogenin.
Some other popular products containing laxogenin are Annihilate by Huge Nutrition and Anogenin by Blackstone Labs.
Will this supplement get you absolutely ripped?
Well, let's find out in this Redcon1 Halo review.
What is Halo?
Halo is a muscle-building supplement containing the popular plant extract laxogenin, which is derived from the Similax Siboldii plant.
Most users experience an increase in mainly strength and muscle mass. But having more muscle definition is also something you read a lot.
The research is minimal on the extract itself; however, users reported increased lean muscle mass and strength.
So, how does it actually work?
Well, laxogenin has a steroid-like binding affinity, meaning it tells your body to grow muscle and be in an anabolic state.
It could also possibly increase protein syntheses, which we all know is responsible for the making of new muscle fibers.
It also has anti-catabolic effects, meaning your body is in a constant anabolic state. Therefore it's mostly used in a bulking stage since you are in a caloric surplus.
What Can You Expect?
When you purchase a bottle of Halo, you will receive 60 capsules, which are enough for a 30-day cycle.
They claim on the website to take it at least 12 weeks, which means you would need 3 bottles of Halo for an optimal cycle.
However, I've seen people take it for 8 weeks and got terrific results with it.
You can expect to gain at least 7-8 lbs of lean muscle mass with a cycle of at least 8 weeks.
However, you will only gain that amount if you have your diet and training in check.
We also experienced an increase in strength and vascularity, which is very common when you are in such an anabolic state.
We had the opportunity to compare Annihilate vs. Halo and concluded that Annihilate is more potent in terms of size and strength.
However, they would compare very similar since they both have 100mg of the active ingredient.
Are There Side-Effects?
There are no side effects reported after the usage of 3 months or more. So, we could say that it's practically side-effects free.
Halo is not a prohormone, a sarm, or another compound that messes with your natural hormones.
With most of these products, you need a post cycle therapy product like Rebirth PCT. But Halo doesn't require a pct since it doesn't suppress your natural testosterone levels.
Some users like to take a on cycle support with it since it's still processed through your liver. All though it's not liver toxic at all.
Can you Stack it?
Yes, you can stack Halo with any other muscle builder, like MOAB or Boom Stick for example.
You are able to stack Halo because it doesn't interfere with any hormone, just like MOAB. We would actually advise you to stack it for optimal muscle gains.
Many people stack it with a pre-workout a BCAA supplement to help them to crush their workout.
If you're looking for a good muscle-building stack, we advise you to take a look at the Enhanced Mass Stack.
The Final Verdict
Redcon1 Halo is a powerful muscle building supplement and will definitely help you with gaining lean muscle mass. It's overall well-tolerated and doesn't require a pct after usage.
It's relatively expensive if you need to cycle it for 12-16 weeks, which requires you to buy 3-4 bottles.
We would recommend using Annihilate, which is a cheaper and more effective option.
