I just finshed week 4 of my tren / prop cycle (75mg / 100mg EOD). I have been monitoring my Bp and it has creeped up to an average of 138/80. I know this is not extreme but I would like to try and get it down a little. What are some effective OTC supps that I can add to help reduce Bp? About the only thibg I take right now that may have some positive effect is 81mg of asperin PD.

Is your salt and overall sodium intake okay?

yes. I try to keep it very low. No processed foods in my diet and I never add salt to things that I cook.

When we eat carbs, excess carbs are stored as glycogen. For each gram of glycogen, your body also stores 3-4 grams of water hence water weight gain.
