MN XFA vs. SNS X-Gels

Page 4 of 5 First ... 2345 Last

  1. Bill and I, as well as others close to us have ran 250mg and 500mg per day protocols with good success. While we do occasionally surpass 50 days when doing so, we do not recommend to take it continuously. Be sure to take regular breaks, time on = time off is always a good rule/rough guideline to follow with most ergogenic supplements.

  2. Due to its pro-inflammatory properties, would Ara possibly increase the chance of injury?
    For example, since I have some shoulder problems would I encounter more issues while on ArA? Has anyone experienced this?

    If you have a pre-existing injury, it may aggravate that injury.

    Some people go ahead anyways and can handle it, others not. I was running 1.5-2g X-Gels for a while with a bum elbow, I just did not dose on upper body days and took my Cissus XT later in the day.

    I think it would depend heavily on what the pre-existing injury is. I've got a few, but I don't find them to be any less manageable due to ArA supplementation.

  5. ^ Thanks for the responses.

    I guess I'll give it a shot and see how it goes.
    Crossing my fingers that it works out and I dont end up crippled.

  6. With inflammation being a large part of the bodies natural healing process, we've heard many say that small cuts/wounds seem to actually heal faster while on X-Factor.

    In the instance of dealing with a current injury though, I always play it safe and do not take arachidonic acid until I'm pretty well healed.

    Much like anti hero's feedback, I have a few small nagging injuries, they dont seem to nag me any more or less while on X-Factor or X-Factor Advanced. It seems to be a non issue for most.

    You can always dose Cissus after ArA (I dose Cissus XT about 6hrs after X-gels) if it does start to become a problem; or run it at a lower dose.

  8. ArA doesn't seem to aggravate any existing complaints I have.

    I always seem to get mild tendonitis in my elbow as well as noticing more joint stiffness throughout my body whilst on it but nothing major.

  12. Looking forward to hearing your feedback.

    I just got off the phone a little while ago with one of our customers who said he personally gets a noticeable amount of joint pain with the original but not the Advanced, something one of our old reps used to often tell me, and something we see reported fairly frequently on the forums as well.

    The same goes for your diet everything in moderation. You don't want to consume too many oils, fats etc that are high in omega 6's because it could down regulate omega 3 etc... You don't want to be too heavy on either side for a consistently long amount of time; omega 3's or 6's. Nor do you want to consistently take any supplement, vitamin, mineral etc for any long amount of time because of down regulation of other important nutrients in the body.

    The trials thus far have shown a safety profile of 50 days. outside of that your venturing into unknown territory except what is known about the consumption of diets high in omega 6 for long amounts of time

    Hmmm.. do I hear an X-Gel Advanced coming up??

    SwolenONE was referring to X-Factor Advanced (made by Molecular Nutrition the company he reps for).

  21. Agreed. Compare X-Gels to the original X-Factor, not X-Factor advanced.

    I know i was saying SNS should do an X-Factor Advanced. May not necessarily with fish oil but other components to help increase the effect effect (ie LCLT)

    Not likely man... X-gels and OG X Factor seem to be the favored formulas so we'll probably just stick with that

    I'm in no way discrediting advanced but in general ArA solo seems to have the most consistently positive feedback.

    This pretty much sums up why:
    PGE3 is synthesized from omega-3 fatty acids (like DHA/EPA), and this acts as an anti-inflammatory. PGF2, on the otherhand, is synthesized from omega-6 fatty acids, and this acts as a pro-inflammatory agent. Arachidonic Acid (ArA) is a omega-6 fatty acid, therefore it synthesizes PGF2, and acts as a pro-inflammatory, while omega-3s act as an anti-inflammatory. While research suggests that the anti-inflammatory effects of omega-3s don't inhibit the pro-inflammatory effects of omega-6s (such as ArA) to a significant degree, there is still an extremely important conflict with supplementing omega-3s at the same time as ArA: they both compete for the same enzymes, and they are both stored in the same storage sites in cell membranes. That means when you supplement omega-3 fatty acids with ArA (or any other omega-6 fatty acid), there is competition between the two and you don't get the full effects of the two. In addition, chronic omega-3 can alter the make up of the fatty acid content in the cell membrane, which in turn alters the effects of ArA. Therefore, to get the best bang for your buck from ArA supplementation, one should not use ArA at the same time as omega-3 fatty acids like DHA/EPA. If one wants to continue to use fish oil while supplementing ArA, they should use it on opposite ends of the day.
