    Do you have experience with Nitrates? It could be a possible side effect of too high a Nitrate dose. If that is the case you could lower the dose and slowly build up.

    Great advice here, most likely the culprit

    Ok so I tried mine out this morning. I have a pretty mixed opinion on it.

    I took 3/4 a scoop on a not full but not empty stomach. Took about an hour to kick in for some reason. Unfortunately, upon first impression it has too much of a yohimbe feel for my taste. It is definitely the cleanest form I have ever tried, even noticeably cleaner than alphamine. But while I feel energized, I never feel comfortable if that makes sense. I always feel slightly on edge and anxious. This makes it kind of easy and hard to focus all at once. Heart rate is much more stable than other forms of yohimbe, yet still too elevated to comfortably have an intense workout on. 5 hours later and I feel tired but if I close my eyes, my mind is way too busy to sleep. One thing is for sure, this stuff is like Viagra. I mean I seriously couldn't take it at work or I would be on the wrong end of a sexual harassment suit.

    To be fair I seem to be very sensitive to yohimbe. I'm going to try a bit more to see if my body adapts to it since the yohimbe sides are far less than other forms. However, what sides remain aren't good. I will keep y'all updates for others who are sensitive to yohimbe like me.

    Either way I'm stoked to have another bottle of erase.

    Dang man. Seems like you are way to sensitive to any yohimbe form. Maybe .5 scoop will work better for you without any of the sides. But as you said your body may adapt to Enhanced if you start the dose low and increase bit by bit. Looking forward to see how you react after you dose some more. Hope it works out for ya man.

    I agree. Everything about yohimbe seems to effect me more wether it be jitters, libido, you name it. To be clear the sides weren't bad but more uncomfortable. Going to play around with it a bit more. This probably won't happen to anyone else as its way smoother than even alphamine for me. I think I'm just hypersensitive.

    Ya it seems like it. Some products just aren't for certain people. I hope this isn't the case for you because I sampled Enhanced and I've never felt better and focused off a pre-workout.

    I tried some of the final product today. With the sample packet I took one whole packet and divided it up, half pre-workout and half to sip on during my workout. This time I took half a scoop pre workout and the other half during cardio. It just didn't seem the same as before. Cardio seemed extremely tough and I felt tired. My first dose pre-workout I felt slightly jittery but nothing to bad. I think each sample had two scoops so that might be why I felt different. Still doesn't explain whey I didn't really feel jittery at all the first time and now this time I did a bit. It felt more like the reaction I get from products high in nitrates, sleepy but with jitters. It was so completely different than what I felt from the samples.

    I did sweat a ton more than normal though, so there's that. That didn't happen the last time either.

    The only difference between the sample and the tub is the inclusion of the calcium carbonate. Which will allow you to reduce your dosage some.

    Also, give your bottle a good shake before hand.. incase any settling occurs.

    I always shake mixed powders like this. I do with Alphamine because I love the smell when I open it . Will be doing the same with Enhanced.

    I really love this pre, I had 3 workouts in row now. 1 scp, 1.5 and did 2 for chest and tris today. I feel 1.5 to 2 works great for me, excellent pumps and focus, and I have noticed after the first 2 workouts I have not expierienced the soreness afterwards.

    triceps & chest felt like freshly cut stone today !

    All powders get shaken prior to every dose. I enjoy the smell and choking on the poof of whatever that comes out when you pop the top off. LOL

    First scoop today. (Also my first post)

    Kicked in about 35 minutes on empty stomach. Definitely felt the Yohimbe, even before I read the label or the forum posts. Too distracted by the sweats and faster than usual heart rate to give an effective review, although my weights seemed a little "lighter" than they should have been. Maybe I'm just yohimbe-sensitive, although no one's ever accused me of sensitivity before.

    I'll try again tomorrow with 1/2 scoop. I wonder if a small scoop of Theanine might help?

    Responded well to Craze. (best workout stack for me so far is Kratom + Craze)
    Not stim sensitive. At least not coffee or Adderall, neither of which I had with this morning's Enhanced scoop.

    Looking forward to trying my enhanced tomorrow....hoping I don't get the same feeling alphamine gave me.
    That had me feeling messed up!
    No discredit to PES though. Like the dos Equis guy might say..."I don't buy supplements often, but when I do, I buy PES.

    To me it felt just like alphamine but with less strong yohimbe sides. Even tasted similar.

    Damnit can't wait, I've got my first two tubs of alphamine on the way. Kinda disappointed in myself for not giving PES a try until the insider deal. Sure am glad I did though!

    I loved my first workout with 1 scoop of enhanced. I think my sweet spot would be 1.5 scoops, vascularity was there in my shoulders, pump was there even after my 2 sets of 5 warmup sets. Great focus but I donno if I can say that enhanced caused that, I was pretty jacked to go to the gym today as I have missed my workouts because of midterms this week. Either way, I can't wait to get back from spring break to start using enhanced regularly.

    Interesting, any reason why you chose to take it later?

    I usually just took all 3 before bed. Never had any joint stiffness or any sides whatsoever at that dose. Just strength and lean gains.

    I believe PA wrote one time about the benefits of taking an ai at night but I could be mistaken.

    Erase is awesome stuff. Can't wait to finally run it at the same time as Anabeta. They have been awesome on their own
