Should I dose Arachadonic Acid on off-days?

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. 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.

    So ima start at 1.5g and see how that goes so I can see if I feel a difference.

    Cool workout days only than. It's going to be a nice pct :-)

  4. 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?

  8. 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.

  10. 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)

    It really doesnt increase inflammation that much for me
    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.

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

    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 :-)

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

    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...

  19. 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.

    Schizm covered it. 1g, 4x per week is the lowest I would go personally. I would bump it up to 1.5 if you only worked out 3 days per week.

    If you want the ultimate recomp stack; X-Gels + Glycophase + Forskolin is a great option.
