    x-factor vs anabeta


    Out of the 2 products, which one is better for bulking and making lean gains? Also, if you are prone to hair loss, which product would be the safer option?

    Man way to make it a tough decision.

    Honestly I love both and tend to just use one while I am not using the other.

    They are both pretty awesome but won't really accelerate lean gains, but IME help with body comp while bulking given you don't go too crazy with your diet.

    Pumps, strength increases, and muscle fullness are both pretty insane on either.

    Both are great products but X-Factor is the winner for me...well, it wins against any supplement as far as body composition is concerned.

    But which one is the safer option for someone that is extremely prone to hair loss? I heard that anabeta is somewhat androgenic, but I've also heard reports on people shedding while running X-factor due to scalp inflammation.

    I believe x-factor works through targeted inflammation so it should not produce a significant hormonal response. Not sure of the moa of anabeta. I doubt either would contribute to hair loss.

    Both products will elevate LH, and hair loss is a possible endpoint of that.

    One thing about AnaBeta that is highly overlooked is its muti-dimensional abilities.

    1 - its is anabolic

    2 - it increases testosterone

    3 - there is an acute effect in a single dose, noticed especially when taken with carbs or when taken preworkout

    4 - there is a prolonged use effect from daily use, including physique changes, strength gains, endurance increases, and performance increases

    I am almost through my first bottle of ABE, all I can say is there is already a second bottle in my cabinet for when I finish. Absolutely love this product! Not "huge" strength gains but def a push through any workout, I always have that extra energy to do one more set... Then another... Till the wife gets annoyed I'm so late coming home

    I don't notice strength gains from AnaBeta. Body composition improves more than with any other natural anabolic I have tried though.

    With all the benefits from Anabeta, hard to not always have it around. Love me some Anabeta. Still need to get some x-factor original and give it a go.

    For me, Anabeta hands down. I love the nutrient paritioning effects. Really helps shuttle the carbs to the muscle, and away from fat.

    X-Factor killed my joints, couldn't handle it. X-Factor actually can indirectly lead to increased hair loss. People don't realize hair loss is not just a hormonal issue, but inflammation issue as well.

    For optimum results with minimal sides, I would go with AnaBeta. On my second run with the original AnaBeta right now. Using 6 caps daily on training days and 4 caps on non training days. Did this the first time too and am loving the results. The only sides I have ever experienced with this are increased vascularity, muscle fullness, increased hunger and a lighter wallet due to the increased food consumption. Its good stuff!

    Anabeta is the clear winner. X-factor increases inflammation. Anabeta is a stand out supplement.

    Through reviews, both have shown to be anabolic. Arachadonic Acid is a pro inflammatory and Anabeta can be an anti inflammatory. Both have been shown to be anabolic by the reviews and studies.
    I ran both during my last PCT.
    Anabeta (Elite) taken about 5 hours pre workout and with my post workout dinner (3 hours post workout), and X-Gels about 20 min pre workout.
    On off days I would just be sure to keep the doses spaced 4 hours apart so I could take advantage of the ArA without hindering the muscle inflammation, which is the reason I'm pretty sure it causes muscles to grow.

    I got all the great nutrient partitioning benefits of Anabeta Elite, and the benefits of the X-Gels as well, without either supplement fighting the other or canceling out, and it was probably the most fun PCT I've ever had.

    So guys, say someone about to do a halodrol cycle, with nolva, daa, and cycle assist for pct, would the anabeta possibly HURT me? Or would it be great? Any chance of rebound gyno with that much hormone modulation post cycle? Opinions please

    Many people run AnaBeta on PCT. I would throw in Erase also. With nolva, daa, cycle assist, anabeta, and erase... should be an awesome PCT.

    I agree. Start DAA on last week of cycle. Use Original Erase and dose 0/0/3/2/1. Run ABE as kbayne suggests.

    Start anabeta elite day one of pct. Start erase on week three at 3 caps. Some people start erase right away, but I would start week 3 and taper off.
