    Absolutely, the body actually dose a very good job of handling inflammation unless one has an inflammatory disease.

    As the Baylor study showed, markers of systemic inflammation were actually reduced during 50 days on X-Factor at 1g per day.

    This. Prolonged Whole body systemic inflammation = bad, localised inflammation = needed for repair

    I already asked this in an other thread but still didnt get an answer. Is it safe to use ArA when there is a slight chance to have something like a mild gastritis?

  5. I am still a little confused on the inflammation part. What exactly is getting inflamed and is there risk to prostate and other organs?

  6. I've done the everyday dosing and the only on workout days dosing now. I saw slightly more positive effects from everyday dosage looking in the mirror, but I also had some severe joint and tendon inflammation (I have sporadic onsets of elbow tendonitis and ARA exacerbates this issue). The strength gains were evident using both dosage protocols, whereas the actual visual confirmation seemed more prominent with the everyday dosage.

    I very much appreciated the lack of elbow pain from the workout only dosages though. So...I'm at a loss as to determine what I prefer. I'm going to go with the only on workout days dosage simply because it didn't hurt me as badly.

    I definitely saw better results using Compete and Hemavol with it + Micronized GMS.

  7. What's the best dosage? 1, 1.5, or 2g? To many different dosages.

    From what I'm seeing its 2g on workout days only

    1g if used every day? Correct?

    What would the effects be from 1 to 2g?

    Interesting! Did you dose the same amount each cycle and how much?

    Perhaps. Perhaps not. When taken PWO it is directed to skeletal muscle but other things may be impacted.

    During the study, inflammation was not notably increased. It wont cause damage but if you have issues with either, the already current inflammation process may be exacerbated.

    It really doesnt increase inflammation that much for me

  11. Thanks. That is one thing I am always thinking about with any supplement and what studies have been done.

    I went with 2 grams and it was great. Many say that they don't see a difference between 1.5 an 2 grams but then again others do.

    I would just dose on workout days no matter what dose you choose.

  14. So for my second dose of Ara, I tried 6 caps, or 1.5g. I literally had the worst headache after my workout. How likely is it that the ARA is the cause or had some sort of impact on my headache?

    I've heard of people commenting on ArA giving them headaches and could not finish their run with it.

    What else did you take pre-workout?

    Took it with PES Enhanced, 4 scoops of CL Glycergrow and 2 scoops of Primaforce LCLT

    How many scoops of Enhanced did you use? And have you taken nitrates before?

  18. I used one scoop of Enhanced, and I'm usually stim tolerant. I've taken nitrates before, but do they cause headaches?

    Nitrates can cause them. It is always best to start at a low dose with them and work your way up. The headaches could be from the ArA or nitrates.

  20. If worried about headaches with ArA, a few tips.

    -Dont exceed the label recommendation of 4 caps
    -Dont stack with nitric oxide products/nitrates (or at least keep the dose low)
    -Try X-Factor Advanced which was designed to give you the benefits of X-Factor, without the side effects (headache, joint pain)

    We are a brand that focuses on the safety of our customers above all else, if you have or have reason to believe that you have an inflammatory condition we do not recommend this product.

    Systemic markers of inflammation were actually decreased.

    ArA has always been a staple in my PCT, even before SNS started making it. Keeps you crazy pumps/fullness that you had on cycle!

    NO products won't exacerbate headaches that are specific to ArA. And one can simply add boswellia to a time NOT preworkout/with ArA.

    GMS has virtually no capacity to give a headache at under 10 grams...

    I had my eye on Ara for a while to but I never took that leap to try it. This time around I def do and can't wait to see how it is. I hear, I hear :-)

  27. If you are following the everyday dosing method, would that mean everyday dosing of the GMS and Carnitine as well?

  28. Quote Originally Posted by Daxter View Post

    Yes...you want to dose all 3 (ArA, gms, carn) at the same time....that's another reason I prefer the preWO only method, saves $ when one is also running gms & carn with it...

  29. I had a slight headache the first couple of times with ARA.
    2-3 workouts later and it was gone.

    Can't say for sure if it was the ARA that was giving me headaches, but if it's not too bad maybe try 4 caps for a couple of workouts and then bump it up to 6 again.

    Headaches are the main reason I won't go higher than 4 XFA pills pre-workout. You might be like me and more susceptible to headaches from ArA.
