    Na-R-Ala. Add Agmatine + a carnitine salt (ALCAR, PLCAR, LCLT)

    300mg Na-R-Ala + 500 mg agmatine + 1 gram carnitine per meal AM and PM.

    CLA actually rapes insulin sensitivity and causes insulin resistance in most forms that are sold as dietary supplements.

    Na-R-ALA, banaba, 4-oh-isl, and agmatine are all good options.

    Agmatine is excellent, and cost effective when you consider that 100g of SNS Agmatine can be found for only $30.95.

    I do love some 4-hydroxy-isoleucine though.

    That deal is nuts when you factor in that agmatine isn't exactly cheap to begin with

    The nutraplanet brand is ~$11 for 25g. SNS Agmatine can be found ~$31 for 100g. So SNS is actually only 3/4th the price.

    Perfect thread for me...about to try a nutrient partitioner for the first time, as I am in bulk phase at the moment. Slamming the carbs heavy and getting stronger, but would like to shuttle more of this into the right spots...so, Recompadrol, Glycobol, and Anabolic Pump seem to be the top 3. Which would you say? Why?

    You can check out nutraplanet Yellowgold as well - pretty sure it's used for this purpose and you can cap it yourself as well

    I actually am leaning more towards Recompadrol at the moment, just wanted to see what my anabolic brethren had to say. Hope to stimulate some good dialogue before I order tomorrow evening. Going on vacation to Cali next week, too, so I will need to bring it with as I plan on cheating for 4 days straight!

    This is not cheap, but I had good results with 200mg Na-Rala, 2.5g Agmatine, and 4 cap PES AnaBeta taken daily. I would take all three at the same time about 30 minutes before breakfast and 30 minutes before dinner like this:

    AM: 100mg Na-Rala, 1.5g Agmatine, 2 caps PES AnaBeta
    PM: 100mg Na-Rala, 1.0g Agmatine, 2 Caps PES AnaBeta

    No need for that much agmatine. And up the Na-R-Ala to 300mg and agmatine to about 500-750mg. But nice addition with the Anabeta

    Actually, my intended purpose for the agmatine was not for GDA or NO/pump purposes, but rather for pain management. I needed 2-2.5g daily in order to achieve the benefit I was looking for. I found out about the GDA benefits later on which was like a bonus for me...lol!

    But you're absolutely right that Agmatine pairs very nicely with Anabeta! =) When I was on this combo, I never bloated from any kind of carbs and I was tearing through food left and right and stayed extremely lean. Even when throwing in an extra cheat here and there it was like it never happened.

    I don't know why people believe in CLA anymore. It's not worth it in my opinion. So many better proven options out there supplement wise.

    I never did like or believe in CLA. Ran it once a long time ago and didn't notice anything.

    Much better options out there for sure.

    Add ALCAR in the morning and get the Na-RALA through SSv2 and that would be one of my favorite combos.

    That'd be a nice combo right there. I plan on doing agmatine/ACLAR/Na-RALA soon. May add Yellow Gold also.

    Too lazy to cap that crap and no one in their right mind would use it without capping. Stuff is like death.
