Taurus Nutrition's New Liquid Stim
First I would like to give a big thanks to everyone at Taurus for letting give this stuff a whirl
Now on to the good stuff...
Is to use this when ever I need some energy. Simple as that. I'll probably be changing up the times to cover first thing in the AM to replace my morning cup of Joe, before some workouts, whenever i just get tired and need a pick me up, hell I will probably also give taking it late in the evening a try to see if or how much it will affect my sleep. You know just for sh*ts and giggles.
Serving Size: 2ml
Directions: Put 2ml under the tongue, hold for 60 seconds swish around the mouth and swallow completely. I'll start with that and see it takes me.
All stuff I like. Not sure if I'm allowed to post it up yet. I'll hold off till a Rep chimes in Yea or Nay.
Like coffee with an ever so slightly sweetened edge. Pretty damn good actually. No bad after taste.
Liquid. Maybe just slightly thicker than water. Nothing I imagine anyone having an aversion to.
I actually received it last night, but held off till today to dose. My intentions were to dose a half serving of 1cc first thing instead of a cup of coffee that I usually have. However, I couldn't sleep till about 3:30am and subsequently woke up late and in my rush simply forgot. This sucked 'cause I really really needed it at work this morning lol. It was a short day thankfully, and I took 1cc at about 1pm on an empty stomach. I only took half serving 'cause I hadn't eaten anything and I haven't taken this before. Just a lessoned learned is all. Any how, I had planned on taking a nap after lunch, but after a bit no longer felt the need to. Was still a little tired, but not hurting like I was. Everything was clean and smooth. No crash, jitteryness, heart racing, or such. I can't use teeth grinding as a gauge in case anyone is wondering as I really grind my teeth bad day/night no matter what. Suppose to sleep with a mouthguard. I'll try and pay attention to see if I ever think it may be exacerbating it or such, but I doubt I will be able to. The more I think about grinding the harder i do and the harder it is to stop..lol. Right now it is about 9:30pm so it's been about 9.5hrs and I feel fine. Will hit the rack after the Poinsettia Bowl is done.
Tomorrow I will go with the full serving of 2cc first thing in the AM. If anyone at anytime has any questions, complaints, gripes, b*tches, suggestions, or saved rounds, just send them my way and I'll do my best to oblige.
My final thoughts on Taurus Nutrition's new Liquid Stim: This is a damn good product. Period. It tastes great! Coffee with an ever so slight minty hint. It truly is quite enjoyable. The one bottle lasted me about 1 month, but I think for the average user it should actually last a good bit longer than that as I doubt many will be taking triple and quadruple doses like I was, and chugging an unknown amount like I did lol. So I imagine this will be a great bang for your buck product. This is a very versatile product as well. It is easy to asses tolerance and adjust your dosing to meet your needs and goals. For average day to day pick me ups the recommended dosage of 2cc was quite sufficient and not at all on the stim feeling realm. Just a nice smooth pick me up. Need more for some extra energy to push through a workout? Go double dose and kill that oly bar! Long drive? Hung over and need to get up and go to work? The liquid stim has your back. I've gone up to quadruple dose which is freaking intense and probably too unbearable for most, but if that's your desire it's got your back as well. All in all though, it is a very smooth feeling of energy, lasts a good amount of time, and doesn't lead you to a come down crash (for me at least). Most of the time I was able to get to sleep fairly easy at night, even if I dosed for an evening workout. Unless I took a lot. Though anytime someone is taking any stim, even just caffeine one should be aware how sensitive they may be in regards to it affecting your sleep. I really can't say enough good things about the liquid stim. I really liked it and am hoping it will be on market before I deploy later this year as I intend to take a few bottles with me to Afghanistan. This product is definitely has my approval and my recommendation. A few thoughts for Taurus... The bottle is dark blue and it can be hard to judge how much is left in the bottle, especially near the end when there is foam in there after shaking it before you dose. Though it's not too much of a problem. There were some small chunks in there that became more of an issue drawing it up with an oral syringe, again mostly noticed when nearing the end of the bottle. Though, this as well was not too much of an issue to be honest. All this was mentioned throughout the thread, but IMO are negligible and would not sway me from this product in any manner. Good Job Taurus and thanks for the opportunity... it was fun!!!
