Frequently Asked Questions

If you are looking to effectively burn fat and improve weight loss, you can especially stack LAVA 196 with REPLICA GH from our Signature Series for a muscle building and recovery boost, or you can combine with other OSL products such as Vintage Brawn (protein), Vintage Build (muscle builder), Vintage Boost (test boost), Classic BCAA, and many more. However, avoid using LAVA 196 with products that contain stimulants due to the powerful stimulants already found in the product’s profile.

The active ingredients found in LAVA 196 may be overpowering to those who are sensitive to stimulants. If you are sensitive to stimulants, you could always reduce the dosage to assess your tolerance or simply refrain from use altogether.

This 3-stage formula that starts working as early as the first week of use. During the 1st week of use, you should start to notice thermogenesis and fat-burning beginning to take effect and your weight beginning to decrease. The results continue to amplify with each passing week. You will notice the best results when combining LAVA 196 with a results-driven training and nutrition program, and the other Samir Bannout Signature Series product: REPLICA GH for added help in the muscle strength, growth, and recovery departments.

Absolutely not. Whether you’re a bodybuilder, an elite athlete, or merely someone looking to get in better shape and condition, you can achieve fantastic results from this product.

In terms of helping burn abdominal fat. The potency of LAVA 196 helps burn your fat stores throughout the body. There is no product out on the market that can spot-reduce JUST the abdominal area. While body fat may be lost around the midsection, it will not strictly target that area but rather the whole body, helping create a lean and muscular physique.

Each bottle of LAVA 196 contains a full month’s fat-burning cycle. You may use LAVA 196 for two complete cycles (ie two bottles) before taking a 10-14 day break in order to give your body a break before turning the fat-burning furnace back on!
