  1. PLCAR Taste suggestions


    Thread to recommend easiest dosing. PLCAR is a bit sour.

    So far:

    Pink Lemonade Crystal Light
    Watermelon Xtend

    lately (for morning) -

    MaxMuscle Banana protein blend.
    Evolutionary Muse - Inspire to Evolve

  2. Hows it taste in comparison to ALCAR?. I don't mind the taste of alcar, in fact its pretty good I take it right out of the container in a 1/2 teaspoon measure and just eat it and have some water.

    whereas I would consider ALCAR to be vinegary sour, PLCAR is just straight sour...just a hair worse than ALCAR.

    Have you tried it with any Purple Wraath flavour?

    SO you mean together they cancel out?

    I'll probably just take them both straight and then follow with water like I did with most supps in the past.

  8. Take it w/ some Strange. You don't have to worry about the taste of PLCAR when the taste of Strange is lingering on your mouth. :-P

  9. Hypothetically, dont they both warrant excellent benefits? Why havent they been combined then (yet)?

  10. I've wanted to try PLCAR for a long time.

    When is it going to be available? Sorry if this has been asked before, I haven't been around much

  11. lemon lime crystal light works well for masking flavours for me.

  13. Whats a dosing recommendation?

  14. The taste of PLCAR is mild enough for me to just scoop it into my mouth and chase with water. It's a little worse than ALCAR as said, but not bad at all.

  15. Thanks dsade, I read a bit of the description on the NP site but a lot of it was WAY over my head!!

    Could you give a quick "in a nutshell" rundown the differences between PLCAR and ALCAR? I'm in the middle of discussions with the wife on WHY i have to make another order soon!!!

    I love ALCAR. I've just added 1/2 a t-spoon to my Citrulline Malate / Beta-Alanine pre workout drink. Having GREAT workouts and find it has body composition potential and adds that mental kick that was missing. I train at 4:00 am so the mental thing is vital. Does the PLCAR have these benefits?

    The body comp benefits of PLCAR far outweigh those of ALCAR.

    The same boost ALCAR gives you mentally, PLCAR gives you physically.

    It has a special high affinity for skeletal and heart muscle, so delivers fuel there preferentially boosting endurance dramatically.

  17. I've been mixing 1g PLCAR with 1.5g ALCAR 2x/day and taking it straight; the taste isn't really an issue.

    ALA gives me hives, so though I'd like to take it in conjunction with the CAR, I have to opt for other antioxidants; usually Reverse and VitC.

    what about the electrolyte stabilized ALA molecules? The MOA really cannot be duplicated by things like Vit c.

  19. I have been getting some K-R-ALA in Glycobol, and I haven't been having issues with it - I don't know what dose that is at, though. I didn't realize there was a specific MOA that needed to be accounted for. I'll keep experimenting with the KRALA after I'm out of Glycobol and see what happens.

    Thanks Matt

    ALA prevents intracellular damage...very important when you rev up mitochondrial function with Carnitine esters , thus increasing oxidative waste.

    K-R-ALA is a great form.

  21. Gatorade Orange G2 is EXCELLENT for covering up the taste.

    I thought all antioxidants had intracellular function. I knew that oxidation increases in result of increased ATP generation - I just had assumed that any antiox would do the trick. Isn't ALA also somehow a cofactor to carnitine function?

    This is a pretty decent summary of why ALA it unique.

    Yes, it works with Carnitine extremely well - but I don't want to spill my beans just yet and this was part of the Mitochondrial Boost product (now blending into MACHINE).

  24. That link is an AWESOME read - I never knew how different antioxidants interacted with each other!

    Also: Mitochondrial Boost Product? Do tell!

    They absolutely do. NOxidant took me a ridiculous amount of research and hours tailoring each anti-ox just right in order to maximize punch and prevent pro-oxidation. ALA and SOD (in each of its forms) are your super potent mitochondria anti-oxidants, keeping the machinery humming along perfectly.

    Mitochindrial Booster is being merged with the MACHINE formula, as an all encompassing endurance/strength augmentor. More details will be comign soon.

  26. Talking


    I mixed 1.5 grams into my morning oatmeal today (2 scoops ATW Choc-PB, 1tsp Cinnamon, 2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder) and couldn't even detect it. I think I'll be doing my morning dose like this from now on.

    I also mixed 1.5g PLCAR into my ULTIMA yesterday with a 1/2 tsp Citrus Dew flavoring. It was also undetectable, and my workout was friggen insane. As if Ultima wasn't complete enough, I think the PLCAR works great with the formula! I will continue the night doage like this as well

    Sold. My only real vice anymore is these damn things. I try to only have a few a week as opposed to the 2-3 I used to have per day.

    1 tsp is about 4 grams.

    Dosage recommendation is around 1-1.5 grams twice a day, in the morning and preworkout being ideal.

    Enough.

    I'm unfortunately not going to reveal individual components of Eviscerate, but there are between 2-3 grams of PLCAR in Eviscerate.

    I wasn't looking for exact figures. Is that 2-3 in a dose of E or in the bottle?

    I was going to pick up some PLCAR to use while I'm cutting, but I also going to be using E twice a day.

    If I could cram 2-3 grams of PLCAR into a single dose of E, I would be a GOD!

    That's per bottle.

    I thought that was a stupid question, but I sometimes have to ask stupid questions.

    Is it best taken on an empty stomach? Or does it not matter? The preworkout dose should be taken how long before you train?

    doesn't much matter....I add it to protein shakes lately.

    Should be take 30-45 minutes prior.

    Thanks Matt.

    I found a 1/4tsp measuring spoon, so I assume that would be about 1g.

    yup

    i take mine just with water 30-45 min preworkout..

  39. I use a 1/4 tsp and and take it straight and chase with Xtend. Taste isnt THAT bad and fades fast

    or sometimes I just mix in xtend pre workout

  40. Is a second dose still recommended on off days?
