    Hate to pile on the Versa-1 wagon, but I'm another who didn't see anything. I have a whole bunch of things that haven't worked or I didn't think were nearly worth a repurchase. Sometimes I blame supplements themselves and sometimes I realize it's probably just me. Good example is Enhanced, it absolutely doesn't sit well with me. I get really weird and constant "hiccuppy" type burps and have a hard time training. Obviously the issue is with me and not the supplement in this case. Tried all sorts of different ideas on it.

    Over the years I've started to develop a "phobia" towards trying anything new except for perhaps a few companies. If something comes out and gets good reviews and people are talking about it for a while that's when I will try. I used to want to be the first to run the newest stuff. Now I wait to make purchases after everyone else has guinea pigged it

    I got a ton of preworkouts I had never heard of before of samples from the Arnold last year. Threw most of them away as they didn't seem to do or provide much of anything besides having some poor prop blends.

    Curious if anyone would include protein powders they thought to be ineffective. People have their preferences, but I feel that they're more due to taste than any other factor, including efficacy.

    I have been sticking with Dymatize Elite XT lately.
    Lots of others give me problems. Mainly throat and GI problems.
    Turns out a lot of companies use wheat gluten in their powders and disguise it as glutamine peptides.
    Syntha 6 would be one of them.

    I'm so glad to not see Alphamine in this thread. It's my first time taking it and it looks very promising.

    Let's hear it!
    Pf3 by MAN,bio grow by isatori,any oral igf1s including deer antler,all creatines except monohydrate,hcl,or nitrate,green tea extract*much rather fix cinnamon and ginger green tea to drink* ecdysterone,and finally I feel cla is useless for me now due to the studies seem to cater more to the obese.

    Waste of money in my experience:
    1. HGH Mass
    2. Versa-1 ( probably just a non-responder)

    Remember during beta testing when fears of Versa-1 being another Pink Magic (in terms of efficacy) were hotly denied? Dare we make that assumption again, here?

    I really wanted this supp to work, maybe I should revisit it but use it in conjunction with something else.

    Sometimes hype works TOO well and the supp, while useful, can't match the expectations it garnered.

    versa 1 did nothing for me personally.
    Ecdy products never did much for me and hicamax.

    Versa was hyped up so much people may have been taking dirt and just noticing the placebo effect

    We have an entire forum full of non responders I think lol.

    I would rather spend my money on Anabeta Elite and ArA. I know they work! No trying to be an underdog and fix a broken product there lol...

    Raising hand. I don't know what it is with my body chemistry but I have to dose everything higher than the recommended doses to get any effect. Not just supplements either. I have to dose OTC medications and prescription medications higher than recommended for them to be effective. I just finished up a first run with Anabeta Elite and didn't notice much. No hunger increase, no strength gain, just a little additional muscle fullness.

    Ik everyone here are PES lovers and so am I but Anabeta Elite is on my list. I ran two bottles before and didn't see anything.

    Might give it one last shot

    Versa 1- is on the list if taken alone. Great product stacked with a pre workout IMO

    alphamine...unless feeling like crap is effective
    versa 1
    hghup....again do negative effective count as effective?
    powerfull
    zma doesn't do anything for me either, similar effects to hghup

    daa is pretty useless for gym results too even though it does boost libido and well being

    Haven't heard very many complaints with Alphamine....on any forum. Maybe I could send a sample of the international version.

    I ran two 120 count bottles. The first bottle at 4 capsules a day. When I started the second bottle I upped it to 5 capsules a day. I did notice some additional muscle fullness, similar to taking a GDA, but that was about it. I suspect if I upped the dose to 6 capsules a day I'd benefit even more but at the point the cost:benefit ratio is questionable.

    No appetite control or thermo effect even at 3 scoops for me. I'd have commented but any mention of Alphamine brings Touey out of hiding.
