Clear Edge as a caffeine replacement?

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. Dsade or Sam,
    Is this stuff really sold out or what?

    Says it's "red" in the cart - but doesn't say "sold out" per se - like normal (below the price).

    Dsade,

    Nope, the body adjusts, and I've used large doses taurine for a while now. Great for keeping BP within normal range.

    Thanks....it has been quite a long time since I have used Taurine in HIGH dosage. I used to do around 3 max post workout.

    How long would you say it took to adjust?

    dsade,

    I've just started on my third kilo of taurine in a row -- so it's been about 8 months since I started, but I think it took me about 8-10 days and I may have split the dose into 2 parts at first.

  6. Ive been using taurne for a year and a half now and I notice extreme relaxation in higher doses. I only use it postraining , the effect give me muscles and body a calming relaxation feeling. Also can be use-ful for sleep. It Balances your yin energy with the yang, so to speak.

    Yep, it does feel right to take it after workout rather than before. I'd never thought it out, I just started doing that.

  8. Its great to have a supp that could potentially replace caff to an extent. But with that, would there be similar sides when we do not use clear edge? Will there be a lack of energy and so forth? 'Withdrawal' symptoms?

  9. Getting back to Clear Edge.... I still haven't tested it out absent of any caffeine. I had a hectic schedule this weekend as I wanted to photograph two events, and they both lasted all day -- Ice skating Saturday and gymnastics Sunday.

    I have a Cannon DSLR with a fast medium telephoto and a telecoverter. I also have a Metz flash. After some practice I intend to do event photography with the camera tethered to a laptop, so I can immediately print out high-quality prints right there at the events I photograph. Also thumbnail prints will immediately be sent to a web site so that people can take their time and have order later from a lab I choose.

    That's why I wanted the CE to keep me sharp. I worked with film cameras for several years a long time ago, but digital is a whole new learning curve. It's fun though. And the CE's been doing it's job quite well.

    It's not that there is any kind of withdrawal, more like when you use 87 octane, switch to 93 octane, then go back to 87. It just becomes more apparent that you had been performing at a higher level.

  11. dsade,

    I WILL give a more complete report when I use the CE without any caffeine (starting tommorrow I think). On the other hand I have already cut back from around 600-700 mg of caffeine a day before getting the Clear Edge, down to between 75-200 mg since I've started with the CE.

    No negatives that I've noticed, just some positive extras -- such as reduced stress levels during workouts.

    My initial dose of 5 caps this morning was without caffeine, and I still was very sharp, but I never took a second dose today as I wanted to test some remaining Millenium samples -- Cordygen5 and Citruvol at full servings and Carnage at 1/2 a serving, along with some Beta Alanine I had and 3 grams of Arginine that I had too. I also drank my first cup of brewed coffee in this last week. I then went to test it out on a stationary bicycle (Life Fitness) to see if I increased my endurance.

    I like to do full hour tests, and I go by how many calories are burned in an hour as a decent way to compare improvement. I also pay attention to what levels I can keep up a good cadence or rpm level. Anyway, it has been one of my medium term goals to be able to burn over 700 Kcals in one hour since June 2006 when I started using the bikes to acheive some aerobic shape. I surpassed my goal today as I made 702 Kcals in one hour, and this was a big jump from my former best of 634 Kcals. I feel that some of the credit (maybe alot of credit) has to be given to Millenium Sports supps.

    I know you cannot push your endurance supplement contacts any faster, but you can see my interest is high. I won't say any more, but keep us informed with developments.

    Thanks,

    Tuberman
  12. i see.

    Thank you, much appreciated. I get what you mean.

  13. This is probably my last post on this thread as I found out what I wanted to know. The last two days I've had zero caffeine. Yesterday I used the Clear Edge at 6 tabs per serving (2 servings) and it followed an extremely tiring workout the day before where I worked out with weights (upper back and biceps), then followed with a personal best bicycle workout for an hour. That bike workout should have burnt me for a day or two. But using the CE I still was sharp and focused the whole day after. I've even got some hard studying done.

    The CE is effective without caffeine, very effective, but feels nicer yet with some caffeine added. Clear Edge works, even with tough conditions.

    Thank you for the excellent feedback, sir. Your input is VERY valuable, for sure.

    I think we are going to end up doing both a caffeinated and non-caffeinated version.

    Not that much, given that some will be taking 4-5 caps per serving....maybe 75mg per 3.
