    SNS X-GELS? Worth the buy or worthless?


    was thinking about trying x-gels have read a bit about them, can anyone share your experiences you have had with them and if so how long is it best to use it for?

    I used at 2g daily for 8 weeks, it was like running a mild prohormone cycle. Very happy.

    Go with 1-2g (4-8 pills) combined with 4-6g GMS + 2g Carnitine 30-45minutes pre-workout dosed only on pre-workout days for maximum benefits and best value from the ArA.

    Expect pumps, strength, and body composition changes (depending on dietary status and training modalities).

    No harm, but I prefer to save it for only workout days (but that usually has me dosing at least 5 days a week anyways).

    I keep hearing and seeing people post great reviews on them. Really want to try them myself but can't due to medical conditions of IBS and arthritis. The arthritis supposedly is in the beginning stages in my knees. IBS I was diagnosed with around 20 years ago. Supposedly these things will get a lot worse if I try x-gels.

    Ill be training 4 days per week when my cycle comes up. So running 2g per day on training and non training days will hit the 50 day mark. Not sure whether to lower the dosing on off days to lengthen the run. But then not too sure how much longer over the 50 days i can run.

    Outside of creatine, I think ArA is the only other natty supplement that really does effect composition and show noticeable effects.

    I'm going to have to try this 2 g a day dosing on my next run. Sounds pretty awesome. Right now I'm just running 1 g a day.

    I've ran 1G and i feel great on it .. But if I was to do 2g .. I would do 2g workout days and 1g on non workout days.

    Having glycophase on hand will make even a bulk easier

    Yesterday was the last day of my X-gels cycle. I didn't run it with GMS, or LCLT albeit the first few weeks (just LCLT) to test its effects solo and can firmly agree with Raddam ArA is the real deal and it's effects solo blew me away.

    I've been playing "End of the Road" and "Yesterday" by Boyz II Men on repeat since having concluded my first ArA cycle ... it's been hard but they say time heals all wounds.

    X-gels solo have been amazing! I can't wait to try them with GMS my next go round... 50 days and counting

    And EC. I have enjoyed a combo of EC + ArA for 8 weeks and I must admit, X-Gels is the BEST prices ArA on the market, from the best bulks selling company and believe me...I thought this of SNS before becoming and rep, and thanks to the wealth of knowledge we all know AM is, I discovered ArA is one of the best natural supplements on the market.

    After having had 2 runs already ArA (X-Gels) at 1.5-2.5 gram dosages, I can say it's totally worth every single cent.

    I'd throw in Forskolin as well.

    SNS ArA has been getting some great feedback so far.. great job SNS! When a user can compare it to a mild PH cycle, you know you dun did good.

    Any of you guys gaining any size off x-gels? How long does it take for them to "kick" in? Being a smaller dude, could I get away with dosing it at 1g and still see those "mild ph" effects?

    Size and strength gains are the main effects from ArA which kicks in around week 2. And dosing 1 gram of ArA is the recommended dose so that will be perfectly fine.

    Size gains at the end of the day is still going to be reliant on your diet. There's no way to get around that. Diet + workouts.

    I'm going into roughly my 3rd week using XF @ 1 gram per day. What I have been noticing is how long the DOMS last. It's not painful or anything but I'm sore all day everyday practically (I lift 3 days on 1 day off). It's fine lifting even while still being sore as it just comes down to mind over matter. I'm seeing strength improvements either by being able to lift heavier or being able to hit more reps or an extra set here and there without being gassed. No real joint issues to note as of yet even though I'm using XF along with AnaBeta Elite, Erase Pro, and APE (going into roughly the 4th week on APE).

    I'm pretty impressed with this current stack and after I take the 50 day break after running this stack, I may give Cooper's ArA stack a run solo.

    Just FYI, never been on PH so I do not have a PH reference to compare to.

    Just started taking my X gel today (1g preworkout). But it seems lot of guys recommend 2g.
    My questions:
    if i take 2g should all be taken as preworkout?
    on non-working days should also be taken 2g?

    Yes if you are going to dose 2g dose it all pre workout. If however this is your first run of ArA 1g would be recommended. A lot don't dose on non training days at all but you can however lower your dosing on off days or keep it the same. No real right or wrong answer.

    It helps with the emulsification/absorption of the ArA. This should also be taking pre-workout with the ArA.

    He doesn't get nearly enough respect. Writing out all his ideas takes a lot of time and energy, and the supplement world (as far as forum knowledge) would be several years behind where it is today without him

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

    Oh, I know all about that. I read through a lot of his old posts on bb.com when I'm bored just for fun (dont understand a lot of it tho lol) but i never read through all of that ara thread because going super-inflammatory like that would aggravate my rosacea since its an inflammatory skin condition. Managing it involves taking a lot of fish oil and other chit to try and keep inflammation down

    Just rambling but.......I was mixing my son's bottle today and was reading the nutritional info and saw Ara on the label. Don't know if it's the same thing just in a real small dose or something totally different. Needless to say.... he received an extra scoop!
