    Agmatine dosing


    Just curious on how everyone doses their agmatine preworkout?

    i haven't had the best experience with agmatine in the past, it's kind of hit or miss for me in terms of pump....but i'm thinking maybe i just wasn't dosing it high enough, i've recently been using synthetic's caps at a gram a day and the pumps have been better than i've experienced before......anyone ever dose over a gram and what kind of results did you see?

    I like 1.5-2grams upon wakening. The pumps and slight felling of euphoria last all day....

    Yeah. Some people notice it @ 750-1g others have to go higher I guess.

    I've dose up to 1.5g, but its not THAT much better for me than 1g. Try it out, perhaps you just need a higher dose?

    Euphoria huh? I've tried up to 1g upon waking, for a few weeks, and noticed nothing but the pumps. Weird to feel my forearms and tri's get hard just soaping up in the shower. Lol. No sleep or mood changes were noticeable.

    Do you all think agmatine is a bit overhyped?

    Hemavol is not simply Agmatine, it contains other pump ingredients. I've found that people who seem to be "non responders" simply haven't found a dosing protocol that works for their body. I respond great to 1g pre workout with no food. Others love 500mg-1g with pre workout carbs.

    I like to dose 1g pre workout and split the doses up or prebed on off days.

    Started at 1 gram daily, then bumped up to 1.5g daily for a few weeks, and then bumped up to my current dosage of 2 grams daily and have been at this dosage for the past 4 weeks. I usually just take it all first thing in the morning and the effects seem to last all day as long as I take it daily. So far have found it very theraputic for pain management as well as noticeable GDA benefits since I use along with NaRala. Sleep has been great along with mood and nice mild pumps. I have gotten much leaner even while eating more carbs and I am finding that my body seems to be using all the carbs I take in much more efficiently ever since I started the agmatine. Using Synthetic Supplements brand and will be trying SNS bulk powder once my SS caps run out.

    On a side note I am finding that 2 grams of agamtine daily provides many similar effects to approximately 200-250mg of icariin actives. I am planning to add some 40% icariin to my long term agmatine run in a few weeks and see how well they do together.

    Just started taking it yesterday actually. Read a lot about it on these boards. Prior to agamtine, I was using D-Pol by Purus for my pumps but all that is is a bunch of B vitamins essentially (don't get me wrong, it works nicely).
    I am taking 1g of agamtine. I definitely felt the euphoric feeling (nothing crazy, just a slight nice feeling) and a bit of a pump. I might try and dose up to 1.5 and then 2g like others on here said, to see if I can stretch more out of it.

    I tend to dose .5-1g pre-workout when I do take it around workout times. I personally prefer 1-1.5 grams with Na-RALA first thing in the morning before a meal best tho.

    With the new SNS Agmatine 100g powder, I'm experimenting with 2-3g. 2g is my sweet spot

    Doesn't work for a lot of people; just like any supplement.

    2.5g has been my sweet spot. Loving Agmatine dosing at that level, no stomach issues.

    Just no added benefit for you, at 3g or do you start to get side effects? I've never taken more than 1g at a time. I have no idea what happens when you take that much. I dont have enough left to play with that dosing for more than a day or two.

    Btw, what does the bulk powder taste like? Thinking about taking that route if I buy it again. Prob try bulk Cit Mal first though...

    Bulk powder shouldn't taste too bad. I honestly have never had a problem even with it even mixed alone in water. The taste isn't good but it is far from horrible like some bulk powders.

    I've never really had sides with agmatine besides hypotension, but 2g really brings out the mood support. A lot more positive feel to everything I was doing.

    The bulk powder isn't great tasting but it's easily masked. I do prefer citrulline malate in a preworkout setting.

    I experienced some mild hypotension myself when I first bumped up to 2 grams daily. After a few days it seemed to have subsided or possibly my body adapted to it. No issue now though.

    I have been enjoying dosing agmatine higher as well with bulk powder. I must admit though sns agmatine gives me clearly better pumps than other brands. Even at lower dosages sns agmatine for me is superior pump wise.

    Strange but the quality of the raws from sns much be superior. Annoying actually as sns is impossible to get in Australia. Worth the extra postage though IMO.
