    A few reasons, I think. The two body comp studies that found no results did not include an exercise program. I think if the subjects had been training there would be a different results.

    With regards to the performance trials, we can look to differences in training protocols, as the ones that included some sort of training saw better results. There was one that found no improvements, but they did performance testing 5 days after supplementation stopped. I think we need more research to really get an idea of what it's good for and not useful for.

  3. I believe they may be yet another benefit - and would like your thoughts.

    When I take certain powered supplements, mixed in water, on an empty stomach - sometime thereafter I may get a certain emergent need to rush to the bathroom. This was the case with DAA, and I have had similar results with Arginine base. With DAA, I found that mixing the DAA with baking soda GREATLY reduced this. I am now (as of today) introducing a small amount (0.5 gr) of baking soda into my empty stomach mix, and hope to see the same benefit as I did with DAA.

    Any thoughts???

    If I recall correctly, mixing DAA with sodium bicarbonate creates a new compound. So you may just be reacting differently to the Na-DAA

  5. Have to try mixing it with d-pol.

Gonna try taking some baking soda with that pre workout meal, pre workout and maybe some intra. To see if that can prevent the stomach issues

    Yuck! When I was a kid my mom forced me to eat that stuff....NASTY!!

    Why? DPol is already Na-DAA.

    Didn't know that.

  9. From a well researched / well documented point of view (as opposed to anecdotal), Transdermal Magnesium Chloride seems to be the single most underrated supplement. I rarely hear it discussed however its necessity for proper biological functioning is remarkable.

    Isnt ease of digestion the only difference though.

    Possibly.

    The study showing the test increase used Na-DAA, so its possible that regular DAA isn't absorbed well enough to have the desired effect.

    Hopefully. Im running an experiment with USPlabs Test Powder starting today to mitigate GI irritation associated with uncapped DAA. Starting with 0.5tsp and working up to 1.0. Crossing my fingers for efficient efficacy...

    The improved solubility translates into more DAA uptake from the gut. This results in less water entering the gut (osmosis), simultaneously improving DAA delivery and reducing GI issues.

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

    I've been dosing 0.3mg/kg 90 minutes before strength training and have noticed an increase in force and noticeable delay in time to fatigue.

    I think it's great for hypertrophy as well as strength. The only bummer is waiting 90 minutes. This isn't especially optimal for those early training sessions :/

    Baking soda does work pretty well but I'm not so sure its something you can use regularly without messing up your stomach. Lol the burps are the best though :P

  21. you can do serial loading, splitting that dose in to 3-4 x day. Showed same performance benefits and less gi problems.

  25. When I get down to less than 6% bf, on low carbs (relatively), and feel like death from all the stims I have found a baking soda, beta-alanine stack pretty invaluable to get me through workouts. It's about the only time of the year I really care to supplement BA.

    There is some research on this stack with varying results.
