    The FDA approves plenty of substances that turn out to be harmful so I would not assume that their approval 100% guarantees safety. You caould also apply your logic to many of the things found in the common diet. Preservatives, pesticides and so on were never in our diet 100's of years ago. Our bodies did not evolve with hammer strength and ellipticals either. I think it would be hard to doubt the safety of many supplements since they are found in the food supply. Many more people die every year from NSAIDS than have ever died from supplements yet they are OTC and considered safe. If you eliminate the people that have died from improperly using supplements, ie exceeding recommended dose or disregarding warning labels, you would be hard pressed to find many issues.

    As far as doing it naturally who cares. I have terrible eye sight should I stay natural and not wear glasses? Do as you please and allow others to do the same.

Hihealth, G.N.C., vitamin shoppe, tommys, NutraPlanet, *******, Orbit, NutritionArsenal, shoot even my local vitamin store and half of the local food stores and drug strores around.

    I think they strive to make quality products at prices that are very reasonably priced and that your average customer/consumer can afford.

    As for the label claims, NOW is far from the only company who might have had a "slip up" in purity or meeting label claims. If you hold up 5 of your favorite supplements, I'd be willing to say that probably 2 of those, their company has had the same issue of meeting exact label claims (whether we know about it or not) !
    Sounds like a pretty good point. I'll still stick with the companies that never seen to have failures or at least less than NOW

    ;-) Look back at my OG logs, I'm an AP & P-Slin whore.

    If I had any, I'd send you some ModernBCAA samples. Forget the 8:1:1 leucine ratio, taste & mix ability alone will have you sold.

    I wouldn't. You are essentially overpaying for isolate (vs WPC), designer carbs (versus food), ajipure ffAAs (versus basic, third-party tested), and creatine HCl (versus monohydrate). You can get an equally effective stack, using the items in paranthesis, for 1/3 the cost.

    Thats not the point of this thread. He has the money for it monthly like the thread title says, so thats what would he prefer. Everyone has their own preferences and what they feel works best for them.

    With the carb argument, have you tried some of these designer carbs? They affect me in a major different way.

    50gr dextrose v. WMS v. Oats v. Karbolyn, are all different especially with the addition of p-Slin or AP or slintensity etc.... Those are my thoughts, especially from my belly's standpoint, he's a picky guy.

    I just read you can take both ap and pslin together since there essentially two differrnt products. Just turns into a pretty intense fat attack along with gh similar attributes...

  33. Goodness.. I don't think I could even spend that much.

    Orange Triad
    Oximega
    Clout (2 scoops a day)
    Body Octane + other various PREs
    Protean (Red Velvet Cake and Chocolate Truffle)
    N-Force or Slin Sane V2 (wanna try SS)
    Figure Fuel, Xtend &/or Compete
    OG Prometheus Rising


    I think that's it..? lol That'd probably be around $200 if I bought it all at once, but a lot of that would last me over a month.

    How is America to push the boundaries of science without experimentation?! Give your body to science, like the rest of us! Where's your sense of patriotism, Commy?!

    I'm a walking personal experiment, and I can sleep with that. You can't ever really know long-term results of doing anything; too many variables between an individual. Best bet is to listen to your body & get routine bloodwork.

    I would.

    I notice a difference with a pure cold filtered isolate to a cheap 'costco' whey concentrate.

    I can down 200g of karboload/vitargo with no stomach discomfort and eat whole food 45 mins later,

    I cannot down that much in rice or oats and eat in 45 mins --- I am after utmost calories for building an 'abnormally'

    large physique.

    I like Ajipure aminos, but perhaps a 3rd party tested version could suffice.

    As for creatine HCL --- yes, mono has been proven, but from empirical experience and a positive universal feedback,

    why not...

    If you are rich, does that mean you waste money? This isn't really a matter of preference given the body of literature on whey isolate versus alternatives, or high MW carbs, etc.

    If he has so much to spend on supplements per month, he can buy more/better things rather than wasting $$. I'm a firm believer that you should be a smart shopper regardless of financial status.

    What difference do you notice between WPI and WPC? You may have lactose intolerance if what you're saying is true.

    I see what you're saying with designer carbs, but dextrose can have an identical effect.

    HCl is far more expensive than monohydrate per daily dose. It has improved kinetics and can saturate an individual faster, but once saturation has been achieved, monohydrate and cre hcl are essentially equal.

    I do suffer from lactose intolerance so a higher quality WPI will be in my best interest.

    Dextrose has a high osmolality and will just delay gastric emptying too much for what I am trying to achieve.

    I need to consume a lot of food and I need things to breakdown and assimilate quickly. I know what works for my body.

  40. I think this is all very theoretical, or will be in the future. Now that Obamacare will be rolling out, no one will have $200 to spend on anything.

    My insurance rates have increased over 20% - already this year.
