Thoughts on X-gels and Arachidonic acid in general?

Page 3 of 8 First 12345 ... Last

  1. 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

  5. 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.

  8. 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

  11. 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
  12. 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!

    I think it is in miniscule amounts in one of their products.

    it is also in animal test but the price is crazy I only do animal PM from their line

    For many years now, Animal Test is a loaded product. Probably the best test booster for mass out there imo.

    Not really worth the money IMO

    Overlooked for that reason I suppose

  23. Worth a try man..GMS is a great addition but definitely not a requirement to see some great gains regardless...

  25. If I run a full 200 count bottle of xfa, I have to wait 7 weeks to run another? Being a fatty acid why the need to cycle off? Also is 4 pwo the best dosing method? Is there any advantage to going higher? I'm on day 3 and looking forward to see what this is all about, first cycle I've done.

    4 preWO is the best dosing protocol.

    Essentially, the reason why you will see such great results is that going into the cycle your muscles have depleted amounts of arachidonic acid, from your training. Once you have used roughly 50 days worth of usage, most users report their gains continue weeks after their cycle has ended as their muscles are well saturated with arachidonic acid.

    There is certainly a point of diminished returns with X-Factor/arachidonic acid regarding both cycle length and dosing.

    People usually dose pre-workout 1-2 grams (4-8 caps). For your first run 4 caps will be good.

    Run for 50 days followed by a 50 day break.

  28. Stacking it with anabeta would be interesting

  29. I picked up 3 bottles of prime which I've never tried before so I'm stacking it with that.

  30. You guys are making me salivate.....sounds like some awesome additions to an ARA run...
