    COP + beta alanine


    Is there any point to using both COP and BA? Or is it diminishing returns using both?

    Not at all. They work via completely different mechanisms and stack great together.

    I actually have a couple tubs of the OG Protocol, and I throw about 2 grams of COP in to make my own makeshift V2.

    I prefer HCI or CEE, mono bloats the hell out of my stomach. My endurance levels are always through the roof with this combo.

    SNS CEE is going for 4 dollars or so I saw in the facebook page ! Check it out ! And have you tried MCC? All the people I have known with problems with Mono , respond amazingly with MCC and no pain!

    Me too. Mono was good for me as well and MCC has seemed to be just as effective. I haven't had any issues with bloat from either one. Nice to see you on AM BTW!

    MCC is the best form of creatine available in my opinion. And it's incredibly cost-effective as well.
