    DCP / TTA question


    Is there a limitation of total TTA consumption?

    Cause I may use DCP + another TTA based product.

    You can but the risk of sides go up.750mg a day is the most I would go without the risk oof sides from it.

    Anything more than 1-1.5 grams and the side effects will kick in hard. This is assuming you are NOT taking potassium (like in DCP) and taurine to help mitigate the sides.

    If you are taking DCP at recommended dosage, you can probably safely add another 750mg of TTA.

    Originally I was planning to run Dcp on 2 x 3 as recommended with the addition of melting point 1 x 3.
    May try to push the buttons to see how far I can go with extra taurine and potassium.
    Thank you all for the info.

    I've tried adding a bit of MP to DCP. Definitely work up your dosage, and reduce when the sides come.. can be quite painful. For myself, definitely no more than 2-3 extra Mp caps, and even that would be pushing it.

    I find that if my sodium intake is high with DCP, then I retain water...if I control it, then no.

    I am using TTA now and holding a good bit of water, just don't let that fool you into thinking it's not working, it all goes away within a week or so of stopping. just think of it as writing an essay for class and waiting til the end to double space it, you don't see the true end result til it's done

    TTA Water retention


    Just a thought as to all the proposed theories on what processes are involved in causing TTA mediated Water Retention. Nothing difinitive has been stated thus far in my research...

    I have a thought, but not sure how valid it maybe. Could it be possible that the increased fatty acid metabolism is liberating enough free glycerol to make an imact on water gain intrcellularly in the adiposytes? Glycerol is a hydrating agent that pulls in water molecules as we know with GMS and such...

    Anyhow just a thought.

    I hope I am not hijacking.

    How long does it take for the TTA to build up in your system? For some reason I believe I was told around 2 weeks a long time ago. I am curious because it just so happens at the 2 week mark I started getting the feeling of calve cramps whenever I stood up. My dose is... rather high. 3g a day +
    2.5g of salvia per day. I am using nutra bulk.

    That sounds about right thats why we have potassium in the DCP, to keep the cramping at bay!

    It's a very good theory, but it would be most likely due to increasing extracellular(mainly in the interstitial space), not intracellular water accumulation giving a 3rd spacing fluid effect.

    I'd be willing to bet this is far more common in those adding in additional TTA to the DCP mix that are experiencing these issues.

    I think you'll find these abstracts interesting:

    Interstitial fluid concentrations of glycerol, glucose, and amino acids in human quadricep muscle and adipose tissue. Evidence for significant lipolysis in skeletal muscle.

    Interstitial glycerol concentration measured by microdialysis in two subcutaneous regions in humans -- Jansson et al. 258 (6): E918 -- AJP - Endocrinology and Metabolism

    Interstitial glycerol concentration in human skeletal muscle and adipose tissue is close to the concentration in blood
