    What is the source of PLCAR from SNS?

    Also, do you have any idea why brands like NOW, Doctor's Best and Jarrows do not make straight PLCAR (Propionyl L-Carnitine)? They are all a combination of GPLC and PLCAR.

    I have heard that ALCAR should be dosed at 1-to-2 grams a day. Is that correct?

    Good thread...you should try the new WF v2, with the updated flavors! I'd like to see a review on that.

    Good writeups

    Tub - 9.5/10
    Tried it today. Took two scoops. Maybe I was expecting too much, but I got no noticeable increase in energy or an increase in focus from it, and the pumps were meh. How did you dose it?

    Not sure on the source, it was a one-run item. GPLC seems more popular, but I'm not a huge fan (biased studies).

    2g per day is the way to go. I take it split 1g AM, 1g around 4 PM.

    Haven't tried the new new flavors, but I tried the first run of the watermelon flavor. Delicious!

    I have no idea which version I have. How would I tell? The bottle does not seem to have a version number on it.

    I actually dont use many supplements on a daily basis (right now I'm on vitamin D 5000 IU, creatine, beta-alanine, fish oil, and preworkout of choice). It just so happens that I've had the opportunity to use and review many products, and I thought I could give back to the community.

    ...But then I tried Novem and my LBM jumped 50 lbs...with the help of xtend of course.

    I actually have 3 preworkouts in my possession right now: White flood v2, cellucor c4, and superpumpmax samples. I will surely be posting up a review of White flood when my tub is done..I'm halfway there and loving it so far.

    Goals? For endurance, pump-bol is top of the line. When I want energy and a pump, c4 extreme seems to work very well.

    Pre-workout Supplements are a great way to rise above the plateau. I was on N.O xplode for six years on/off with great results. I liked it way too much and nearly destroyed both kidneys. What was scary was the doctors had to use"google" to get an understanding of all the supplements I was on. Will never stop trying new things but I definitely put diet and rest at the top of my training.

    I see.

    Mind telling us what else you were taking or if you have a pre-existing condition?

    Protodioscin tribulus, L-glutamine, green barley and a good WPI. My guess is I shouldn't have screwed around with cell tech. Was my only regret.

    Well, if you are on a low-rep scheme, pumpbol loses a lot of merit. And I haven't had the new C4, but the old one is good.

    TBH man, I just don't think nitrates are for you if you are doing a strength-based routine. One of the best strength products I have ever used in MAN Clout.
