    Yohimbine will increase vascularity but it's chiefly a vasoconstrictor

    .......so studies show agmatine as something that either stimulates or mimics insulin and people are still taking it before bed?*may be mistaken but will read more when I get hone* Read up on insulin and fatburning and growth hormone. I must do more research but I believe agmatine would be more beneficial during the day than before bed.

    Agmatine seems to stimulate insulin release only in the presence of carbs. Physiological levels of GH won't really burn fat anyway...although agmatine is a GHRH stimulant

    does the l citriline contradiction also then apply to cit. malate? i was wanting to test out the combo for pump/sex benefits

    would daa help balance out vs blunt effects?

    how extreme are the alcohol interactions?

    Drop arginine and replace with Agmatine. 10 grams of Citrulline Malate is equivalent to 5 grams of L-Citrulline.

    "Yohimbine and Rauwolscine (Agmatine activates the α2A receptor that these inhibit)" per the other post

    I am taking hyper t2 which has some alpha yo in it, so is the effect of the agmatine enough to cancel out the effect of the alpha yo? On a similar note, if ag activates the a2a receptor does that mean it would be counter productive in some ways to fat loss?

    I just added agmatine back into my little stack and forgot how much I love it. It is far and away one of the strongest anxiolytic supplements out there. Aniracetam is always going to have a special place for me, but the benefits that I see from agmatine make it one of the miracle supplements, imo. I get very vascular, a calm sense of well being, and just generally feel like I am firing on all cylinders. I dropped it in the past because I underestimated what it does and the price for 1g-1.5g can get up there, but I realized how worth it it is.

    I definitely see a BB benefit, but for me it is more nootropic.

    To update, I took 500mg before bed last night and went to sleep. I had really good, deep sleep for about 5 hours and then woke up wide awake at around 4:30. I never really went back to sleep, but I feel like I slept for 7-8. Don't know if this is coincidence or how/if agmatine played a role in this.

    I get that reaction from any GH boosting supp..ie sleep hard for 4-5 hours then wide awake.

    I noticed the analgesic aspect of agmatine the other day. I tore up shoulders/tri's and was hurting pretty good. After 1g of agmatine and some sauna time, the pain eased away and my shoulders felt almost tingly. Unexpected, weird, but I'll take it.

    Never thought I would love a supplement quite this much. This morning 1g before the gym and I just felt incredible. Not so much in actual strength, but just powerful and confident. Every lift was with purpose and I was just really calm. Plus, it is hard to not feel confident when it leaves you pumped up throughout the day. Vain, but whatever.

    Oh, one thing I did wonder is if it is known to lower blood pressure. I read some thinking it might, but didn't know if it was studied. I felt a little light headed after some big lifts and that was strange. Putting that together with the calm sense you get, I was thinking it could be related. Dunno?

    I'm saying it's not physiologically relevant. Agmatine distributes chiefly to non-adipose (mostly CNS) with a respectable half-life. If you want further clarification, I suggest looking up my past posts with SNS.

    It's one of the only supplements outside of study aids that I take consistently. Agmatine is nothing short of amazing The 100g tub is where it's at

    Also note those mios and crystal lite mixes make everything bearable. Even SERMS and pure powder lclt. Lclt seems to taste the worst for me. Serms taste okay with sour flavored or juice drinks.
