    Opinions on X-Factor


    Hello, I have been researching a plethora of supplements out of potential usage and curiosty. In this search, I have came across the supplement listed above a decent amount of time. It seems like everytime the opionon was either it was really good or useless. I hope that if you have tried it, you will post me a reply saying if you would recondmend it or not and why so P.S Please do not state that a proper diet is the best way to gain or anything on that lines. I already know this and I am truely looking for just opinions on the Original X Factor. Thanks Everyone!

    Most reviews that you read that were negative were most likely about the Advanced X Factor. So your on the right track using the OG X Factor. From reviews I've read it is one of the best nautral supplements out there.

    Most people run it like this:

    4-6 X Factor pre workout
    LCLT 1.5-2 grams pre workout
    GMS 6-8 grams pre workout

    Don't take omegas around X Factor. Most people just drop omegas or take 4-5 hours away from X Factor.

    I've never ran it personally but thats just what I understand and know from others. I look forward to running it though soon

    ^^^This is pretty much spot on.

    Definitely go with OG vs the Advanced version. Over the years it is probably one of my most used products (considering how long it has been around is a testament as well).

    X-factor original would probably be my #1 favorite, i guess one would call it sports supplement. i had a drastic difference in body comp from an aesthetic point of view. took 5 on an empty stomach pre workout with full serving of glycergrow and 2grams lclt.

    ARA should be cycled and stay away from fish oils while on it. not long ago i saw a 200count of the Og for 68 bucks wish i wouldve picked it up when i had the chance lol.

    I'm two weeks in on an OG X Factor run and I'm liking it thus far... Sore as hell right now! Joints a bit achy but no bad sad effects so far besides oily skin.

    Picked up a 200 count bottle for 68 a couples weeks ago

    I can understand the benefit of Glycerol (glycergrow) even standlaone for retention of water in muscles (not only in muscles if taken in a wrong manner)....
    Expecially about the 6-8g preworkout, I'm not not able to understand the benefit related to AA in the X-factor.

    If a product is taken TOGHETER with another (in this case X-FO + Glycerol) some synergistic effect should be achieved or expected.
    So can someone tell me why these products are GOOD if taken togheter pre-WO?

    The GMS is to help emulsify the ArA. Doing this empty stomach pre-workout will help facilitate the proper uptake in the GI tract and towards muscle (where we want to store the ArA).

    A tub of GlycerGrow could probably last through a couple of those years lol. I've been holding on to a couple bottles that I'd like to crack open soon as well.

    Has omegas in it which is the exact opposite of what you want while taking x factor. Youll pry still see some gains off advanced but not like the OG

    This.

    The effects of both versions come from ArA, a pro-inflammatory fatty acid. XFA has fish oil in the formula, which is anti-inflammatory and would seem to be counterproductive.

    Well... The 200 count was on sale, probably because it sucks I guess. Maybe I'll just up the dosage.

    Unfortunately, the issue is incorrectible because upping the dosage also ups the dosage of competitive fatty acids

    I posted on another forum about why I would use XF vs XFA.

    I got flamed by an MN rep. It is nice to see others saying the same thing. Safety in numbers!

    Maybe buy some OG also, and stack some extra OG with your advanced?

    That's actually a good idea. I'll look into that. I can up the dosage of the ArA and keep the omega 3 down.

    What are the thoughts on using X-factor during a cut?

    Is that a waste of its potential?

    Honestly X-Factor is one of those supplements that always seems to get a ton of positive feedback. I haven't used it, but I've been around various forums enough to know that they got something solid there. I wouldn't hesitate to give it a nice run if I was you OP and heck I probably should as well!

    I even had solid results with XFA. Would rather go with the OG version now, was worried about joint issues at the time.

    Not a waste IMO. I like using it on either a bulk or a cut.

    Just keep in mind it does tend to increase DOMS and I sometimes report an increase in hunger, both of which may be a hindrance on a cut.

    Overall though I tend to note great body comp changes so I feel it can be beneficial to whatever your goal.
