    I just take 5 or 6 preworkout only. It stretches a bottle out and I've noticed insane pumps and fullness without the potential negative sides like sore joints and DOMS. I think 8 X-Gels ED is overkill, plus that adds up $$. But maybe somebody else will have a different view.

    I have been considering giving Arachidonic Acid a run for a while now I am curious as to how this stuff would do on cycle mainly.

    I think X-Gels + Anabeta Elite is the best natty stack going right now. Arachidonic Acid has been out for several years now and reviews and studies back its effectiveness.

    I've done 2.5g ArA in 10 X-gels a day with 4 workouts a week. It's just 2 bottles for 5 weeks and I have to say the inflammation is considerably larger than from 1-1.5g in my case at least. While I did enjoy it, I think 2 bottles with just 4-6 caps per workout it's perfectly fine too to make it last a bit longer and still enjoy good gains given hypertrophy and nutrition is check.

    Criticalbench have you tried this on? Does it really improve the results of a cycle for you? I am considering adding this to my next cycle of say epistane.. would it really be worth the cost to include it in your opinion?

    Taking it 30-45 minutes pre workout, has anyone noticed a difference between just taking it immediately pre workout... I really don't understand the whole 45 minutes? I would like to bump up to 6 caps, i am doing the whole 50 days.

    Well I would assume 30-45 mins so it can get in the blood stream. But I'm no doctor, unfortunately.

    This...just like with any sup, the body has to absorb it before it can be used...plus this being a gel casing, that has to be broken down first...

    So there is no real difference between taking it every day? SNS does say it's recommended for every day

    i thought it "saturate" and be more efficient but if it's only needed before workout 1.5g would be great!

    For longer cycles of aas, peptides, gh, etc. IMO ara is a very very very solid addition. I see it most beneficial in the same sense of gh, where you can add this, instead of increasing AAS dosages. When one goes on gh, they can drastically lower there AAS dose and get the same effects.. ARA IMO, you can leave your doses the same, and get even better effects.

    Thanks I appreciate it, I will give it a shot to see how it changes my next cycle. Maybe I can do a little test by just adding it to my favorite stack and see if I can notice a change at the same dose.

    I dont think many will need to dose higher than 1 gram, in fact many stick to 500mg of arachidonic acid and still see very noticeable gains.

    Yes. Just dose ~4 hours away from ArA dosing.

    1g is good, 2g is better. That's the cool thing about ArA, higher dose = better effects/results. Since you only dose on workout days it does make it possible to run over 1g a workout and not break the bank completely.
