    Poseidon-first impressions


    Okay guy's just got my poseidon today and have so far taken 2 of the grand total 3 for the day. Just wanted to give a little bit of my first impression with it so far.

    So, to start off lets describe my day so far. Woke up this morning at around 6 o'clock(went to bed around 12:00, so yep I was tired but wided eyed). I went to the local walley world, did my grocery shopping for the week and then went to my post office to pick up my package. Got the poseidon and mixed one scoop into some aquafina and drunk it up. Now note at this time I had a slight headache from the lack of sleep and a major brain fog going on when it came to clear thoughts and concentration(this comes into play later).

    About 5-10 minutes later as I was driving thru town I started getting the slight tingle sensations that niacin is known to do, and thought "well at least it's working now". Went down to some friends of mine and just starting chatting and shooting the bull about politics and other things. It was about this time I noticed that my headache was gone and that my mind was actually clear and thinking rather freely(about an hour after taking my first serving). I knew more about Hillary then I thought I did.

    The energy I've gotten so far is subtle but it's there. It's really more or less of a sense of all around acuitiy, and lack of fatigue then anything. I usually like to spend my weekends just lying around and doing more or less nothing unless something comes up, but so far I've found my self doing those nonsensical things you think you may do but never get around to it. I drove an hour to my favorite shoe outlet, as I've been needing some new workout and running shoes and bought some cool ADIDAS shoes. Came back home, took my second serving and did some cooking, cleaning and now sitting here typing this stuff up.

    So in summary, so far it's been pleasant. I'm not going to add much into it as it's just half way thru the first day. I just though this might be helpful to some of you guys and figured I'd let you know whats going on so far. The true test will come in time, to see if the difference is marked over long term use or not.

    Thanks for starting this thread prld2gr8ns...sounds like a great first day! Since you mixed it with just water (as do I), what was your impression on how it mixes and the taste?

    We designed Poseidon to have no artificial colors or flavors AT ALL. We wanted it to be virtually tasteless and mix instantly...giving it the versatility to be combined with water or any other beverage.

    I'll be interested to see what other benefits you begin to experience over the next few weeks ;-)

    Okay guys, one day down now, so to continue where I left off yesterday. I took my third and final dose at around 5pm, and for the rest of the day I just had a great sense of vitality and really just an overall good feeling. I like it, as I haven't thought positively about a lot of things in a really long time. I have a presentation coming up on Wednesday, and have been dreading it ever since last week. Yesterday, I just started to sit down think, and form a plan as to what I would talk about and how I was going to proceed with my powepoint outline. I did this a couple of times last week and always felt like I was getting no where. Today everthing I thought of seemed like it was, well, just good. I found my self looking forward to the presentation, and thinking about how much fun it was going to be. This stuff really helps with mood enhancement.

    On a side note, I took another serving of poseidon this morning on an empty stomach and got a niacin flush from hell. It was kind of cool to, as it's snowing outside right now and I felt compelety normal and warm. Even the inside segments of my elbows got a little red. I wonder if the amount of water you take it with would have anything to do with this? I mixed it in a entire bottle of water yesterday and only got a slight flush. Today I just poured a little water(about 8-10oz) into an empty bottle and drunk it down, hmmmm.

    Now for the taste. The taste mixed in water is fairly neutral, with a tinge of bitterness.(If that makes any sense) It's really hard to explain, as it's not exactly tasteless, but the slight taste you get isn't bad at all. I can tell you one thing though, mix it in rasberry crystal light and you have to watch yourself as you'll be wanting to chug it down.

    Sounds like your coming along nicely...and your only on day 2! Great to hear!

    Poseidon should do wonders for helping you prep for your presentation. What's the topic? We are actually looking at testing Poseidon on High School and College students...both athletes and non-athletes...to see if it improves their grades. We know student athletes will benefit GREATLY on the ball field...NO QUESTION. I would speculate, with GREAT optimism, that Poseidon would = A LARGE improvment of performance in the class room as well...

    As far as the Niacin flush...you will get a larger one if you drink an entire dose of Poseidon all at once, with little water to dilute it. You will also experience a larger flush on some days than on others. Here is an article on the Niacin Flush and exactly what is happening when it occurs:

    The niacin "flush"

    It's important to note that this niacin flush is not harmful or dangerous. Some people worry about it, but it is actually a sign of improved blood flow.
    When you get the niacin "flush", it's an indication that the niacin is causing small blood vessels in your body to be expanded in size. Many of your small blood vessels, called "capilaries" are so small that blood cells can only go through them in single file. Sometimes, in fact, that small capilary passageway is clogged and blood doesn't get through at all.

    While the large organs of the body all have blood supplied from large arteries, a great deal of your body, particularly the parts near the skin, get their ONLY supply of blood (therefore also of oxygen and nutrients) from these small capillaries.
    The niacin causes these small capilaries to expand - so they might be able to carry 2 or 3 blood cells at the same time. This is a tremendous increase in blood flow.
    You experience this as a "flushing" of the skin, simply because there is more blood close to the surface of the body. As the blood flows in these areas, the cells of the small capilaries will also be getting rid of their waste products, and often they produce 'histamine' as part of this process. That histamine is another natural substance produced by every cell in the body when a cell is under attack, or is eliminating toxins.


    I'm looking forward to your log ;-)

    I'll put the college student experience to the test as I'm currently a graduate student with a boat load of test and presentations coming up in the next couple of weeks. This wednesday, I have to present a topic about the oxidative stress reduction and anti-apoptotic effects seen with resverartol supplementation. Which sounds extrememly intersting(that's why I chose it), except when you get the research papers together you have to spend tons of time disecting graphs, materials, methods, what type of oxidative stressers they used in-vitro and why, what amounts of res did they accompany with the cell line test with the stressors, what where the results, what pathways did/could the results have happened in. It's a lot to get down(by heart), but I think I'll manage.

    LOL, na I'm not that big of a drinker but I do have to get my res amounts per grape skins/liters of wine down, and correlate it with the average dose used in some of these studies.

    It's an interesting compound...I would be curious as to your finding. We looked into it as a component of a few supplements ideas we had, but concluded it needed more testing in the supplemental form before safety (as far as drug interactions etc...) and dosage amounts could be determined.

    Hey prld2gr8ns,

    Have you thought about using Poseiden in a pre w/o mix? Or as the only thing pre w/o?

    Do you think it will help aid in focus/motivation in the gym? I don't think it will help with energy or pumps but maybe it has some uses for training.

    (I'm waiting for mine to come in and so far I can't wait)

    Negative stuff...

    It won't make you gain 20 lbs of muscle in a week nor will it slash your bodyfat from 20% to 4% over night...How am I doing?

    I'll toss in my $.02 in here for a minute - I received mine on Friday and dumped 3 scoops into a liter of water, got nothing. Yesterday I had probably 4 scoops throughout the day - nothing. This morning I put 2 scoops in 16oz of 50/50 pineapple juice and water and got hit with the flush My wife was like, "OMG you're red and blotchy." The only internal feeling I noticed was that my ears sort of tingled and felt slightly warm to the touch. Checked the mirror and sure enough, I was red all over my back, face, shoulders and the occasional splotch here and there. An hour later it was gone and I feel fantastic. I usually don't "feel" what most or some folks claim to feel from various supplements, but this one - WOW. Definitely a life-long customer here

    We are working on a Poseidon Pre Workout formula currently. It will most certainly help with energy...it's just more of a sustained energy rather than a quick up and down as most thermos give.

    As far as a pump...try mixing 1 serving Poseidon with your favorite creatine and arginine base supp....the creatine and arginine alone will cause a nice pump...add Poseidon to that mix you may be looking twice at yourself in the gym mirrors...the synergy is fantastic ;-)

    Awesome. I will have to try some independent testing first, but I have a feeling it's going to be an addition to most of my pre w/o supps.

    That's exactly what I've found out so far. Years, and years of invitro, and mice studies with all kinds of positive results and human trials are just now starting to pick up. Hopefully, soon they'll be some more info out there so that safety and supplement use can be effective.

    As far as a pump...try mixing 1 serving Poseidon with your favorite creatine and arginine base supp....the creatine and arginine alone will cause a nice pump...add Poseidon to that mix you may be looking twice at yourself in the gym mirrors...the synergy is fantastic ;-)

    Sure will workin, right now I'm just focusing on putting the papers aside and watching the football game.

    Quick recapp for the day.... nothing really amazing happening as I've spent most of the day reading and analyzing some stuff, and doing all the things you have to do on Sundays like preparing my food, cleaning, etc. I will say that my awareness has been slightly tweaked with my reading. Usually after about 2 research papers I'm ready to quit cause after the 3rd, 4th and so on they start running together and it gets a little confusing. I got thru 3 straight and seemed to have very good recall on them. Maybe poseidon is helping with the recall or maybe it's because I got interested in them. Who knows, I'll save judgment on that for later.

    Do you think it will help aid in focus/motivation in the gym? I don't think it will help with energy or pumps but maybe it has some uses for training.

    (I'm waiting for mine to come in and so far I can't wait)
    You know I'm sure it'll help enhance a workout, but what I'm curious to know is the after workout effects. I'm wanting to see how it makes me feel the rest of the day, as I usually do my workouts early in the morning. Lately after workouts I've been experiencing major fatigue as I eluded to earlier, so I'm interested in seeing how/if poseidon will give a little edge in that department(it's one of the major reasons why I wanted to give it a go).

    Sounds good man. Best of luck with that. I train in the evening, so it won't be something that really concerns me but I do look forward to what you have to say about your experience with taking it pre w/o.

    Okay, got my workout in this morning and I can tell you the hydration effects of poseidon are noticable. Sets, and reps all seemed to easy and to few today as I felt like I could have worked in a couple extra sets in every bodypart. The endurance is definetly up, and there was a bit more mind/muscle connection with the weights today( I'll see if this progresses as usually somedays its good, and some day's its not). If it continues like this, I'd say that it defenitly has it's place as a preworkout supp, as I really enjoyed my workout today.

    Now for the rest of the day. Fatigue and general lazyness was not apparent at all today. Even after the weight session, my thoughts were pretty well free flowing and I basically just maintain a constant good energy level all day. Didn't even feel that afternoon lag that I usually get..... and that's good. Had two 2 1/2 hr classes today and managed to stay very attentive thru out. The lecture material seemed to all fit together fairly nicely, and I even managed to answer a couple of question the professor couldn't.

    Now for a couple of things I noticed today about taking poseidon..... 1. If you mix it with about 20-24ounces of H20 the niacin flush is greatly reduced(I didn't even get one with my morning dose), and 2. If you mix it and let it sit for about 2-5 min you taste absolutely nothing.

    Let me know if theres something I left out that anybody may want to hear about.

    Great review...detailed as always ;-)

    You point out some of my favorite personal benefits with Poseidon...the increased mental acuity...lasting late into the day....and over all sense of vitality. I use to have to have some form of caffeine around 3:00 or I was a zombie. Since taking Poseidon, I have no need for it.

    Did you only take that one dose pre w/o? Or did you take another one or two later on in the day?

    Basically, I'm interested in how long the focus and hydration effects last. I would like to mix it into my pre w/o mixes, but I wouldn't want to drink 24 ounces directly before my training session. My point is, how long do you think before training can you take Poseiden in order to still feel the focus and hydration?

    This sounds like a great product and I would like to extend the one bottle that I'm about to receive for as long as possible.

    Thanks for the great review so far.

    (I don't know if I rep'd you already for this review, but if I didn't then let me know.)

    I took one serving of poseidon before w/o( and I just thought I would mix it with 20 some ounces of water, I don't think it's necessary though), mixed and sipped one throughout the the workout and after, then mixed another serving into a another water bottle to take with me to work and sip on during classes. It's pretty much an all-day thing as far as the energy goes. Hydration, I'd say is similar as I think that's a big part to why it acutually increases energy. If you want to extend a bottle I'd say just mix in a couple of servings into your favorite water bottle to sip on thru the day, and take a third dose in a meaningful time frame before your workout.

    On my workout days (even though I don't workout until later in the evening, usually after 6pm), I take 2 scoops first thing in the am on an empty stomach mixed with a 50/50 mix of 8oz pineapple juice and 8oz water and get one hell of a flush! On cardio days, like this morning, I take 2 scoops on an empty stomach with 16oz water only and have to chug it - it does have a taste, and get a very noticable flush as well. Mid-day I mix 2 scoops in a liter of water. Great thread!

    I couldn't have put it better myself ;-)

    I would suggest this however JJC.... if your working out later in the evening, start sipping on your third dose about 5-10 minutes prior to your workout and finish it about 15 minutes into your workout. I find I have great results when I consume Poseidon during a workout due to the almost immediate absorption. You may want to experiment and see what works best for you.

    Thanks for your comments mtas,

    Do you find that if you mix Poseidon in water, and let it sit for a few minutes, the taste subsides somewhat? I mix Poseidon in my water bottle first thing in the morning and then jump in the shower. After I get out, I start drinking it and find the taste is barely there, if at all. Funny how everyone's taste buds a slightly different...maybe I've just gotten so use to it I don't even notice

    I'll give that a shot tonight when I get home before dinner. I'll mix 2 scoops with about 16oz of water and let it sit for 15 minutes before drinking it. When I mix 2 scoops in a liter of water, there is no taste, only a pinkish tint to the water Any rough estimates as to when the bigger tub of it will be released? I started my wife on it this morning and she left for work with the flush going full bore
