    I am having a discussion with a couple of friends who state that there isn't any studies om AA conducted on humans showing any improvement in athletic performance.
    Is there any?

    And if using ALCAR - is 2g too big of a dose?

    Never used bulk LCLT, it is in TONS of products (probably one of the biggest bandwagon additions to every formula out there, not that it isn't a solid ingredient) so I usually get it in my pre. 99% of the time that means Genomyx Protocol for me.

    That is my preferred ALCAR dose unless I play to use it at multiple times per day.

    Forgot this. I have used Hema+Compete with a run of ArA last year. GVT plus that = insane.

  10. I've got anabeta, forskolin -95, intimidate and may be getting erase pro but have nolvadren xt

    I could add x gels... Epic stack!

  11. SNS thank you for getting X-gels right this time, IMO ARA is the best supplement out there for imporving body composition. god i wish it was like creatine and i never had to come off of it well that might be a bad example because i dont even take creatine anymore lol

    One proves that it doesn't work at all and the other one proves that it's beneficial

  15. I have one last question, guys.

    How much of an impact does stacking GMS with ArA vs standalone ArA have?
    I understand the potential benefits (at a high level) but would the addition of GMS significantly increase the efficacy of ArA?
    Are there any people who have run a cycle both ways to notice the difference?

    I have enjoyed pretty much every time I have ran ArA. When I first used it the proposed dosing was 1 cap 4 times a day with meals (sometimes opting for 2 caps pre-workout). While I still found that effective the addition of the GMS + Carnitine seems to quicken the results for me (pumps, vascularity, and DOMS start sooner).

    Awesome feedback, it seems pretty much everybody (myself included) prefers the Neuron dosing to any other method.

  18. I would run it after, if the cardio part is intense like 3k run pumps themselves could be counterproductive.

    I ask because I'm currently training to increase my cardio endurance for a few police tests I'm going to be taking and I have my X-Gels and am waiting for my LCLT and glycergrow to arrive. I don't want to run them just yet if they are going to affect my cardio endurance.

    Can anyone chime in?
    Just don't dose it prior to any physical tests... you're not going to fatigue faster. Get that **** outta your head lol

  20. Is it just me or is ArA threads popping up everywhere now haha

  21. It also depends on how you react to ara in my case I can do cardio but am much more fatigued and would reccomend against it in competition setting othervise it can be good prior get all the benefits and then be leass sore when the compettition is actually going to happen.

    But honestly Police tests are usually nothing physicallt taxing so I would not worry too much. I have been a cop in a different country lol by the physical part was a joke imho
  22. Thumbs up

    They are, its a nice change!

    ArA was far too slept on by the industry as a whole for a full decade. It's great to see great brands like Axis Labs, Universal, SNS and others all getting behind arachidonic acid!
