On a warm Vegas day I found myself pushing my way between swarms of supplement hungry fitness enthusiast. OK, none had the appearance of being fit but when I got closer to the Gamma-O booth that changed. Bang, Bang... "Try one more time", Bang, Ding! Welcome to the Gammo-O booth where you have the opportunity to show off your strength as you attempt to make the highest hit possible on something which I am not sure of the name.
Felt like I was witnessing a strong man contest at a carnival right out of the 70s. The prize: A Gamma-O shirt, labeled with various slogans such as: "Fat = Lazy", "I See Little People", "I'd F*ck Me", "I'm Huge in Japan", "Train Hard or Go Home", "Testosterone, It's what separates the Men from the Boys," and last but not least, "Size Matters."

A Delightfully Irreverent Shirt From Gamma-O.
As a competitive figure athlete who has tried Gamma-O first hand, I felt that this product is one worth mentioning.
"Gamma Oryzanol works on the hypothalamus in the brain which, through its control of the pituitary gland governs a number of the body's automatic functions, including temperature control, water balance and hormonal regulation. The hormones include the sex hormones - testosterone in the male and estrogen in the female."
| What Is The Hypothalamus?
The part of the brain that lies below the thalamus, forming the major portion of the ventral region of the diencephalon and functioning to regulate bodily temperature, certain metabolic processes, and other autonomic activities.
What Is The Pituitary Gland?
I am inviting you in on my conversation with John Napolitano, President, GAMMA-O, right before the Olympia, 2005. (John also uses Gamma-O for contest preparation as shown in his before and after photos).

Contest Preparation: Before & After.
[ Q ] Why are testosterone boosters beneficial? How can it help people who train?
A: Testosterone is important for many different reasons. As a man ages, his testosterone level drops. That is just a fact of life. Testosterone effects sex drive, muscle growth and recovery, energy, and mental acuity.
[ Q ] John, when did Gamma-O first make its mark in the bodybuilding industry?
A: At the
2005 Arnold Classic. We had a great booth and we even had the doctor there that did our clinical trials.
[ Q ] What sort of athlete was it primarily formulated for?
A: Everyone. It works on your hypothalamus to make your pituitary run more efficiently. No matter how someone takes it, it brings your hormones to optimal levels. For instance, testosterone in men should be up around 800ng per dc. But in women it is 70ng per dc. Your levels will only be in this range if you are running at optimal levels. Gamma O gets you there.
[ Q ] So you are saying that women benefit from using your products as well?
A: Yes, women also benefit from Gamma O. A women's testosterone should be between 40 and 70 Ng/dc as where a man's should be between 200 and 800 Ng/dc.
The way Gamma O works to make your own body run more efficiently it will bring your levels to peak performance whether you're a man or woman. Women experience that low sex drive, lack of energy, water balance and fat stores from high estrogen could greatly benefit from Gamma O. Since Gamma O helps regulate hormones it also helps women with mood swings and heavy cycles.
[ Q ] What age is too young to start taking Gamma-O?
A: Again, it is a hormone regulator. We have high school students taking it. It is safe for any age.
[ Q ] You have three formulas available. Would a female interested in gaining as much size (naturally) as possible benefit more from using the formula 'For Her', or the one designed 'For Athletes'?
A: The main difference is the dose. Women are smaller and just don't need the same dose. Women athletes need more that is why most of them take the athlete formula.
[ Q ] I understand that Gamma-O 'For Him' is an all natural rice bran extract. Gamma-O works on the hypothalamus to control the pituitary gland which controls the body's endorphin and hormonal release patterns. These hormones include the male sex hormone- testosterone. Is it possible that some men may not see results from these products?
A: Anything is possible. We did 78 clinical trials and all the people got great results with blood work to prove it. If a customer is unhappy for any reason we offer a money back guarantee.
[ Q ] Your promotional ads are very HOT. Are you going to continue pushing the envelope in terms of the photography and language used in your ads? I must comment that your ads grabbed my attention!
A: We push the envelope with our product why not push it in the ads. You will be in the up coming ads so you know first hand how hot they are. We are selling a testosterone booster. Hot chicks get attention. The science is on the site.
[ Q ] Wow, thank you John. I am very flattered. I simply thought that your choice of language was simply real, saying it like it is. I like that. Will you be having a presence at this years Olympia Expo, Oct 13 - 16th or at the Arnold in 2006?
A: We have a booth and we will be there.
John and his team were most certainly there, full force. I am impressed with Gamma-O and recommend it to those of you who want to noticeably improve their results in the gym or in your sport.
John, I would like to personally thank you for your one of a kind promotional materials and for getting Gamma-O out to those who want and need it most.
