    Day 6- Legs
    Not much to report, due to knee pain, just took it light. For lack of a better word, it is really depressing to work legs now. But I will be patient, and hopefully by next week, I should feel some relief. Still liking the supp though.

    Day 7 and 8- Did not work out these two days. I did notice some relief in my left knee. It does not hurt as much as it did before. As for the energy level during workout, while it does not compare to JP8, it is there, I like it. Will be able to tell better on week two.

    Thanks Pem, yeah both are actually. The other one is finally starting to feel a bit better. I am going to stay totally away from leg workout for another week or so. One other thing I did notice..(although not sure if to attribute this to ZMA or essentials), but I noticed my libido has gotten very high lately. While it has been good, it seems I am horny beyond normal, and this almost all day. Have you all experienced anyone with this "side effect" from your test subjects?

    It is definitely the ZMA, however essentials does contain vitamin b6 which increases testosterone, which could lead to a libido boost, but so does ZMA, lol. ZMA is not sold as a test booster but it does aid body in recovery and immune system. Magnesium synergized with zinc can increases testosterone based on recent studies.

    Day 12- Chest
    Still maintaining the same strength as before, this to me is good so far. I am not taking any adittional pre workout supp, and I can definitely tell that essentials is giving the energy and endurance to still get a good workout, and stay focused. I have gotten some relief in both knees now. While still tender, I don't experience little discomfort when either getting up from sitting, or walking down stairs. I gauge my level of improvement based how much discomfort I feel first thing in the when going down the stairs.

    Glad to see knees continue to get better, it will get better slowly, just give your body some time.

    Day17
    Well I took Crazy's advice, and finally mixed it with crystal light,mmmmm. This is weird, the knee that I had gotten relief on, started hurting again, walking is painful. I am at the point where I feel I need to go see a doctor. I haven't done any leg workout for over a week now, not even calfs. I need to fly to NY, I am thinking of cancelling because I know my knees won't make it sitting cramped like that; they hurt when I sit to watch tv. What do you think guys? What kind of doc should I see? I know there are all kinds of bone and joint specialist, I just don't want to get jerked around by one doc telling me see this or that person.

    can be from the extreme cold, my knee was bothering me a little today (year ago i got a bone bruise from snowboarding, that took like 6 weeks to heal)

    see an orthopedists. get MRI and see what the damage is. so you can better self medicate lol.

    Yeah I am going to make an appt on Monday. What specialist should I seek out? My medical plan allows me to go directly to a specialist without having to be referred by a general practitioner first. Man I miss those military days when I did not to worry about co-pay and deductibles, and paying for meds.

    Seek an orthodpedic specifically, I hear ya, medical visitations can cost a fortune. I wish you the best on your healing process, hopefully orthopedic sees nothing too serious.

    Well I have completed my experiment with Essentials. Here is my summary:
    My initial purpose for testing this supplement was to see how it would offer any relief for my knees. I did in fact get some relief, not too significant, but some none the less. I did not work out much while testing the supplement, but on the days I did, I got some good work outs. I substituted it as a pre work out because I ceased using JP8 in order to give Essentials a fair critique. I did not experience any real loss in strength or focus when I took it prior to working out. I would actually consider using it as a non stim pre work out supplement. I think Essentials is good supplement that can be taken as a maintenance supplement. It may work as a good joint relief supp, but not in cases where the injury is severe as in my case. Not taking anything away from Essentials, I just think it is “multi supp” first, and a joint supp second. Within a few minutes of taking it, you can feel the tingling sensation all over you. Taste wise; well let’s say that is the last thing they focused on when they were making this… it is horrible. I have mixed it with all sorts of drinks, but Crystal Light is the one that really made the difference. Would I recommend or buy Essentials, I sure would, but not as remedy for someone with joint issues, unless they were mild symptoms. While I did not get the relief or results I wanted or expected for my knees, I am still pleased with Essentials, because it allowed me to experience something I can use as sort of an “all in one” supplement. While it is not like JP8, for a non stim supp, it sure gave good energy, and focus. I started my Epi cycle today, and since it is not a good thing to mix PH with pre work out stimulants, then I might incorporate Essentials in my cycle as a pre workout. Thanks to the folks at AI for granting me this opportunity.

    Thanks for the honest review, I do feel that the complex in essentials is geared more for preventing joint injuries than healing, it can aid, but cissus is known to regenerate bone tissue and cartilage due to its calcium retaining abilities.
