  1. Arachidonic Acid


    Hey ya'll . i'm about start my first clean mass ever. and thougt about getting Arachdonic Acid well... i alredy got 2 bottles of XFA
    and i've seen over some thereds that you've to stack it with L-Carnitine and GMS . gotta know what's GMS are?
    my first experince with Arachidonic Acid any suggestions to maximaze the anabolic effects? when and how should i take it?
    also be using with Cellcur M5 pre workout. and Dpol

    by the way it's AnabolicJuich. got banned for posting topless gym doll.
    LOL


  2. GMS = Glycerol MonoStearate - helps to emulsify/create better absorption of ArA.

    Taken from the Glycergrow writeup:
    Glycerol occurs naturally in the body. When it is ingested as a supplement, it is absorbed and increases the concentration of the fluid in the blood and tissues. The concentration of these fluids is held constant by the body, so water consumed with glycerol is not excreted until the extra glycerol is either removed by the kidneys or broken down by the body. In laymen's terms, taking glycerol in supplemental form quickly improves hydration and the absorption of other supplements that are taken with it. The end result is faster delivery of nutrients when and where you need them the most and the prolonged "pump effect" during your workouts. Our Glycerol is esterified with stearic acid to form Glycerol MonoStearate. Glycerol MonoStearate is a colorless, odorless and sweet-tasting flaky powder that is hygroscopic (it absorbs water from the air, so keep this tightly closed at all times).
    I used to take 1.5g ArA and 4 scoops Glycergrow preworkout.

    thanks for the inpout.
    but if i won't use GMS . how it will effect the Arachidonic Acid ? you can also run it solo and still get better results? i still got left Liquid L canitine so i will pop it in.

    yeah i know that if you want go with stright ArA so go with X-Gels. but i alredy got 2 bottles of X-Factor Advanced . so i'll run it. next time will get X-Gels for reall.

    and one last thing. here a pic of mine latest update .



    should i start clean bulk ? or keep running my cut for last month of low carb and 3 times a week HIT and lifting.

  5. The reason I say gran SNS X-Gels (aside from being a rep haha) is because it is only the ArA you need. I am not gonna go into attacking anyone, with all due respect I'll say this:

    ArA is meant to be a pro-inflammatory supplement...why mix it with Anti-Inflammatory supplements? Alas...dose Arachidonic Acid without Omega-3s , Cissus , etc...specially in the peri-workout time frame (4 hours pre and 4 hours post) as they hinder the needed, desired and beneficial inflammatory response from the workout AND Arachidonic acid. Just makes it kind of worthless spending so much on ArA like that !!

    There's 2 supplements that provide solo ArA out there, one is X-Gels by SNS , and you can google around or probably have heard of the other one. Kudos, and good luck, ArA works on a cut, bulk, maintenance phase. I would say cut, but meh , low carb is mostly a decision not really a necessity for ArA?

    i know X-Gels is strighet ArA . but my dad got me 2 bottles of XFA . so i will run it for this time.
    i will be apriciate if some one will take a look into Cellcur M5 pre workout and tell me if there's Anti-Inflammatory supplments and let me know?
    and i'm planning to run the X-Factor Advanced in my Clean bulk . stacked with Cellcur M5 and D-Pol.
    i'm still 18 yo. so i keep it simple at the moment .

    Celorza is simply stating that XFA has fish oil added to it... and fish oil is an anti-inflammatory

    But if you already have it no sense in wasting it. Didn't cost nothin'!

  9. Sorry if I'm asking for info already posted but ArA is not suppose to be taken with anti inflammatories, so does that mean ArA could make things like tendonitis worse? Just wondering because I have been looking into this and it sounds great but I want to get my facts straight before picking up some.

    You do not want to take ArA with anti inflammatory drugs. Space it out roughly 4 hours from ArA dosing.

    Well I guess I want to be clear about 2 things.

    1. Will fish oil interfere with ArA if I take them about 4hrs apart? Or is fish oil not recommended during the time I take ArA?

    2. Can ArA make inflammatory conditions like tendonitis and arthritis worse during the time I take it?

  12. Ara with gms and carnitines imo, is the best combo out there! I use my xgels with hemavol pre-workout for the gms, and compete for the carnitines.. love it! Doing it now, making awesome gains!!

    1. Its easier to just avoid fish oils all together

    2. Yes i would say so it can also make ur joints sore and cause injuries like say a twisted ankle longer time to heal.

    Hmmm I may have to wait on this one then lol... If my elbows are kind to me in the next few months then I may give this a go.

  15. Next time around if you want to go ArA only, our original version is ArA only. I think youll really like XFA quite a bit though, it is far and away our larger seller as our customer base (as a whole) prefers it.

    Joint pain with ara is going to vary from person to person but at least with me I've experienced zero joint discomfort (having mild scoliosis and a 'trick' knee)
    over the past couple of years that I used ArA..and I've run it up to 2g and upwards of 75-80 days...fwiw..

  17. Ive never had joint issues while running Ara either fwiw.

    You'll be fine running m5 with ArA. If you can get a PWO with GMS and LCLT (or buy bulk ALCAR) then run that along with ArA

    and @mtinsideout you can dose something like Cissus XT away from ArA dosing dependent on how prone you are to inflammatory problems.

    Thanks bro.
    gotta know when it's best time of taking XFA ? and how to spread the servings.
    Will pop in some liquid L carnitine with the m5 + ArA .

  20. Take your full dose of ArA preWO...

    so that's 4 capsules of XFA right? and like 30minuth before traning is this fine?
    and in non traning days which timing will get most of the Anabolic effects?

    Cy and others have commented on this as well.

    OP, Please do not cut at that weight. Dirty bulk if you need too.

    Thanks for the heads up jiigzz, I've had my tendonitis kept at bay for over a month now and just started looking into ArA. I'll keep in mind that if I use ArA I should dose cissus, fish oil, etc. at least 4 hours apart.

    Edit: If my elbows start bothering me I can always resort to the ice treatment coupled with some joint force.

    Certain exercises help a lot for tendonitis too, i.e. Zottman Curls, Reverse curls etc. I have found that sometimes it is also a matter of grip strength and grip treatment. Since I saw a post from a well respected member about Fat Gripz working wonders for it, I went ahead and pulled the trigger...aside from XGels, my lever belt and a buffalo steak...best purchase (gym regarded) i have ever done. Hope that helps!

    Like many of us (you included have mentioned) it would be ideal to keep off omega-3s and cissus some 4 hours Periworkout. Personally I know a friend of mine that NEEDS to take our Cissus or iForce's Joint Help on a daily basis due to long standing injuries and 10 years of powerlifting...and he took 8 caps XGels (2g ArA) in the morning around 6:30 , trained with me from 7-8:30 and didn't take his Cissus until around 2-3pm and then another dose at 8-9 and still saw substantial gains. Truth be told I told him to half his dose, and he has some hard knee problems and elbow tendonitis...even then 8 weeks seemed manageable, and totally worth it.

    Hope that helps!

    Yea this is very helpful... It is funny you mention grip strength, just before my elbow tendonitis started i was getting into the "Captains of Crush" hand grippers and regularly doing wrist rolls with a 25lb plate. Since then I gave up on the CoC hand grippers and am back to wrist rolls with a 10lb plate. I do the wrist rolls less often but for more reps now and everything is going good. I think doing to much of the grip/forearm training was part of the problem that lead to the tendonitis.

    Haha I still have my 1 and 1.5 CoC grippers. Don't get me wrong I'll use them from time to time, but at least IMHO they can't replace good old Plate Pinches, Wrist Rolls, higher volume overhand deadlifts...you classics haha. Glad to be of help, and hey if you found what works for you, keep at it man. One of our team members uses Zottman curls for his tendonitis (i just think he likes doing biceps even being a powerlifter haha) and it works for him!

  27. The only time I tend to get joint pain with arachidonic acid is when stacked with an AI, or when using it with really low rep training.

    For those with joint pain, XFA seems to be the way to go as it includes boswellia which for me has always killed joint pain entirely.

  30. Ive used this product before and I really enjoyed it. IT is a staple product for me and I use it in my summer stacks. Its effective and efficient and works well with getting me the best results. I think that it would be great if you would start this stack with some Anavar too. Its an anabolic with hardly any side effects. Let me know what you decide.
