    ive ran a couple X-factor cycle, it was pretty good, gained some muscle while leaning down pretty well, but if you have joints problems then i would stay away from it. Supposdly the X-factor advanced kicks in quicker and may not be as hard on the joints but i haven't tried it.

    I'm at day 19 using XFA...along with TestFactor, loving it!...check the log section for at least 2 logs going....It is def worth trying out, feeling large/pumped thru-out the day, leaning out (haven't checked weight recently, need to do that)...dosing 4-5 caps PreWO, gives a pretty solid pump....at some point during this run, I really would like to add in some Aps's mesomorph and see what craziness that would produce...

    Edit: Also, worth noting....NO joint issues....nor any increased DOMS as some have had mentioned in the past...and I'm even training to try to induce the MOST DOMS...fyi....

    if you search BBs forum there have literally been about 100 logs in the past seven years, there is a lot of feedback here at AM too. For those in the know, this is one of a handful of respected ingredients in sports nutrition today along with creatine, bcaa, protein. ArA is a macronutrient safe enough to get FDA approval for inclusion in baby formula, I would say it is not only safer, but is more effective than any herbal based ingredient or formula on the market.

    I won't doubt its an interesting supp but it is too expensive IMO, especially for running 50 days, especially for being 50+ in the UK.

    sorry to hear you feel that way, I would be excited to hear how you respond if you do end up trying it down the road.

    Hi, thanks for your post. I'm closing in on PCT of my cycle. Do you think XFA would help in PCT along with the rest of the PCT protocol (serm, creatine, bcaa, etc) i mean help solidify the gains? Thanks

    Yes. Ran 2 bottles of it along with TestFactor...always use X-Factor whenever I'm recomping. Excellent stuff.

    glad to hear it, it helps me recomp much better than any nutrient partioner supp (glycobol, anabolic pump, etc). While using 1g ArA a day I stay noticeably leaner and much more full/round in my delts, arms and pecs.

    Do you think it would warrant use during a PCT? From your experience with it.

    I'm using it in my PCT, but I just started so I can't comment on effectiveness. I expect it to be a very good addition.

    Back in the day when NP sold bulk AA powder, I used it for every pct I did. I really enjoyed it. As long your getting a gram a day, I say it will be well worth it. I normally started it 1 week prior to cycle ending.

    thanks for bringing that to my attention, I must have skimmed over it.

    The short answer is yes, William writes about using 250mg ArA for extended periods of time as a great way to ensure you do not lose gains between cycles. Additionally, depending on what compound you cycled with, 1g/day of ArA will IMO be more effective than many compounds were (assuming you were using PHs). I would say your gains on a serm, AI on hand, XFA and a natty T-booster like Test Factor would beat out a run with Halodrol, or Epi, or Bold... I know that seems like a bold statement, but a lot of people quickly realize X-Factor is perhaps the only true alternative to PH's for rivaling strength and size gains but without the toxicity and hit to your blood pressure and cholesterol.

    Using this during pct seems like an interesting idea.

    there is no reason why your pct for a ph cannot be as succesful as the cycle itself if you use XFA, a solid test booster and have your serm.

    I read an article a year or so back about AA affecting the brain. Would you mind elaborating on that a bit, and why you feel it may or may no be a health factor?

    Here's a recent study on ArA and safety...

    New Arachidonic Acid Safety Study

    And for what it's worth, I've witnessed ALOT of people running logs over the last 1-1.5 years and haven't seen anything negative reported...I would (logically) imagine if just one of these people developed cancer due to ArA, it would be all over the boards...and X factor has been out for like 8 years now...

    myself, I love ArA...have done 2 runs so far...one of my fav natty supps...

    I like ArA as well but I had to stop taking my pre workout with it cause it pumped my arms so much they actually hurt and I had to take several minutes rest in-between sets.

    ArA is a fantastic ingredient. I wish the OG X-factor was easier to find

    Yep, 9 years, no cancer... it is clinically proven between the Japanese study and the Baylor University study to be one of the most research and proven safe supplements on the market today. It is even used in baby formula and FDA GRAS approved.
