    Same actually. Ordered 500 grams along with some cissus. I've ordered yohimbine, caff, and beta-alanine from there before, was legit.


  2. ok HSW tmg slightly sugary taste.. very fine white/off-white powder. seems legit

  3. If exposed to heat, then it will start to smell a little fishy. Just found that due to leaving my stash in my truck. Otherwise, still tastes fine though.

  4. Anybody know how much of Finafelx's Max Pump is betaine and how much of it are nitrates per dose (3 grams I recall)?

    1.
    betaine~117 g/mol
    nitrate~62 g/mol

    2.
    1:1

    3.
    math

    3.
    math
    1. Don't really know what that means. Molecular weight?

    2. This I'm guessing means gram for gram it's a 1:1 ratio? Or is #1 the molecular weights for betaine and nitrate respectively and thus if it's a 1:1 ratio of betaine to nitrate then using the weights you've mentioned I could figure it out? That is assuming if I actually knew what g/mol meant.

    3. I would have done the math if I knew there were math to be done. For all I know, the product could be using a different ratio than 1:1 (if that's even possible, not at that level of science yet).

  7. ZirRed, curious how 2.5g/day was arrived at? Did you start lower then just work up? Go past 3g then come back down...?

  8. Dose is determined by athletes body weight. There is some previous research which demonstrates an efficient dose as well

    All the previous research that showed improvements in performance were carried out at 2.5. It would be interesting to compare performance differences at 2.5g to say...5g and maybe even 7.5g. I should do that next.

    I'm sorry - I just do not recall - do you suggest TMG with food or on an empty stomach or does it appear t make no difference?

    Thank you.

    I usually take it on an empty stomach, and then follow with Jarrow B-Right w/ food.

  15. So who makes a good pill form of this supplement?

    I've been using Max Pump for a little more than a week now. I like it. Feels like a good dose of nitrates and I'm pretty sure the 4 caps suggested serving gets you to 2.5 grams of betaine.

    Be on the lookout Very soon

  20. Milk is for babies. Real men drink betaine...

  21. Has anyone tried taking a higher dose? Currently I have started taking 2.5g a day and was wondering if the results would be enhanced at 5g

  22. BB actually carries one. Live Long nutr i think

  23. Pill form is more convenient to me. Waiting on SNS.

    Why not just stick with 2.5 grams? That is the dose that was used in the study and showed great benefits.

    I believe ZirRed is going to perform other studies with a higher dose, but until then just stick to the recommended dose.

    More is not always better.

  25. I went up to 5g after taking with ZirRed about it. I didn't really notice anything remarkable above the 2.5g I normally take nowadays, but I only tried that high of a dose once (for 6 weeks).

    Max Pump. I think the 4 cap dose gets you efficacious dosing of both nitrates and betaine. Any Finaflex reps care to confirm?

  29. Powder is easy to mix in with my pre workout

  30. It doesn't taste bad so powder or capsule doesn't make a diff to me. Has like a slightly sugary pleasant flavor imo

  33. bump. I've read that betaine augments the effects of creatine. I've been doing 2.5 pre and 1g post w/ mono. I guess we need to experiment ourselves to find the sweet spot, until more research comes out.

  34. I'm actually looking to do a dose response study with 2.5g as the top, and then exploring .5 and 1.5g, hopefully this summer.

    Did you notice any GI distress Bolt10?

  35. By the way, as we try to more closely determine mechanism of action, this is a very interesting study:

    http://www.translational-medicine.com/content/11/1/174

    Here we see betaine agonizing the IGF-1 receptor to increase protein synthesis and promote satellite cell proliferation, differentiation, and likely fusion. This would result in hypertrophy and decreased domain size (each myofiber nuclei would control less area, which might mean more precise control). Basically, here we see betaine mimicking the actions of IGF-1.

    I noticed some initially, but it wasn't horrible and seemed to subside with continued use.

    Same here though I tried 7grams on an empty stomach...not a good idea.

    Even 3.75g gave me issues.

  39. I do 6 grams a day with no issues

    now tmg

  40. Weird question, but has anyone else noticed or been told they smell like maple syrup while using TMG? I'm 3 weeks in using 3g/day...my wife tells me I smell like that, like it's coming out of my pores...it's been really the only thing I've added in...though I'm also using alphamine, which makes me sweat pretty easily...
