    I mix the fudge brownie and the banana nut...it's pretty awesome! It's the only brand of protein I can get delivered to TW at a decent price, so I ordered 3 tubs: blueberry, banana nut, fudge brownie. All three were pretty good. I don't love the fudge brownie by itself in water, but mixed with banana nut it's great. Blueberry was interesting. Still not even sure if I liked it or not after a whole tub. I think it depended on the day for some reason.

    Try this:
    Two packets cinnamon cream of wheat, following the directions use milk instead of water, maybe even some extra milk, and add a scoop or two of fudge brownie. Nuke and eat.
    It's fantastic.

    Word up I will try to get my hands on that if I can find it. Thanks for the tip!!! I usually add protein after microwaving since some brands don't stand up to it very well.

    it is definately worth a shot. ive mulled over getting bulk 4:1 massularia for too long; after recently getting snubbed by a seller who wouldnt bring his price down on an expiring bottle of pink magic from a ridiculous $100, i cant think of a better channel for my efforts

    I've read a lot of reviews and it seems the only good Massularia reviews where they gained strength were done by those that are absolutely in love with AI Sports.
    @bdcc was supposed to log it a while back on AM but then AI dropped sponsorship.
    I wonder if he did ever run that bottle?

    Justin is correct.

    I received a free bottle from an online friend who worked for AI. I was due to log it but they ceased sponsorship of this forum.

    Bruce who sent it to me said the beta tests were considered successful and reps were gaining strength from it (not reviewed anywhere, private thoughts shared among each other) so I was keen to give it a go.

    I ran the product as directed. I didn't notice anything in terms of libido, strength, body composition or otherwise.

    Maybe you were overly keen? It does happen when some working up to expecting the moon and getting only stardust they do not conceive what they receive

    My theory is any expectations would have helped lend themselves to placebo effect rather than giving myself the nocebo effect.

    Either way, nothing to report.

    He's pretty much a badass.

    I once gave him a bottle of placebo, and a stack of advertisements hyping up the bottle and you know what?
    He didn't feel a thing.

    theres this brand called primal muscle that wanted about 90 bucks a bottle for their 30 day supply of daa. looks like they dont make it anymore, but you can practically steal their whey isolate for 30$/lb, down from $60lb with a coupon code

    $30 for a lb of whey isolate is practically stealing? That's awful...

    5 lb of GNC brand protein here is roughly 180 USD. a 30-serving tub of creatine mixed with sugar/flavor/color is about 85 USD. Supplements in foreign places get ridiculous.

    Nice! I just went to check that and it looks like you cleaned em out. Must have been hitting the expiration date soon or something. That price is crazy; nice find! Nice Arrested Development line at the end as well

    yeah, haha sarcastically. i think its some kind of relabeling brand, because i tried to look up this one ingredient and i found another supplement with the same profile for a fraction of the cost so i think that company puts a label on it and doubles/triples the price

    shout out to tyrub for his suggestion on massularia accuminata 4:1. felt nothing from it until my workout 15 days in, and then i increased 5 of six exercises that day by 20lbs. if anyone out there responded well to pinkmagic, they would definately like a massularia accuminata 4:1 product.

    hmmm. i would say the increase in strength as judged by the amount of lbs added is the same. libido increase is comparable i suppose. there is some muscle hardening, most noticably in morning, but not what i call a pump. pm had some other herbs in it, so i guess i cant really make a comparison, but a strength increase is something very few supplements can deliver and i basically paid 20 bucks for a months supply of this stuff, so im sticking with it. the brand i got suggests i take 5-6 caps a day, so im gathering the company is blissfully ignorant of the elevated liver enzymes i think were seen at 4g below their recommended dose. ive only been taking 4 caps; ive used other natural test boosters that raise test alot higher, but this stuff delivers on strength very exceptionally, presumably due to its other components. i just noticed ai completely sold out of their supply on nutraplanet

    Anabolic Pump, took it before high carb based meals; I was on a cut and had nothing happen not even a 'carb pump'. Something's just have placebo written on it, best thing to do is keep believing if it gives you gainz.
