    Question about X factor


    why a baby aspirin is advised to be taken with X factor?

    I train 3 times week ; is it more effective in terms of results to get x factor everyday or just pre workout so 3 times a day for me

    thanks

    Well said. And I'd just dose pre-workout as well. No need for adding it in on a random day.

    I usually only take it preworkout so workout days only.

    thanks for the answers but it is still unclear what is the benefits in using aspirin; the thread indicated does not explain it..

    the combo x-factor -aspirin is beneficial why ?

    as far as the dose is concerned it looks like there is a consensus in taking X factor pre workout only; so in my case just 3 times a week?

    Baby aspirin deactivates COX-1 irreverisbly (on platelets) prior to entry in the liver. Systemic COX-2 deactivation via salicylate is next to nil at 81mg. Timing doesn't matter. It will enhance, not hinder, your ArA run by reducing TxA2 formation as a metabolite of ArA

    Meaning?

    does it improve ARA anabolic effect?

    It makes the ARA you are taking more effective.

    Just started taking OG X Factor. Does work out frequency matter or just take pre workout no matter your routine? I've been taking it just pre workout but I've been doing a 5x5 full body so I'm only working out every other day. Do I need the ARA in my system more often and should switch to every muscle twice a week where I workout like 6 times a week instead of 3-4? Or am I fine on taking preworkout on current routine?

    You're fine. Just keep it pre-workout days.

    Cool thanks. I just wasnt sure if if had to be loaded up so I was missing it by not taking it often enough. Good to know I'll stick with the plan.

    Absolutely, you'll be getting great results with taking it preWO only.

    The amount of ara taken per week seems to be important.When i only worked out twice a week i took 7 caps per workout but this run wasnt as effective as the time before when i took 25 caps per week in total

    2 workouts a week isn't frequent enough to see the full benefits of ArA supplementation, especially if you only take it preworkout; that is why your run with 4 workouts a week was better.

    2 workouts a week probably isn't frequent enough to fully utilize the benefits of *most* supplements.

    Absolutely, dosing ArA only twice a week (even at a higher dose) is certainly less ideal for hypetrophy than dosing it (and training) more frequently.

    For those who have seen the deal, XF is under $30, XFA is under $32... only at NP

    That is a killer deal on X-Factor, the best prices I have ever seen on it. I'm surprised I haven't seen more people posting about it.

    Definitely a good deal. I'll grab my second bottle soon. That beats the deal my buddy that works at bodybuilding.com can get me even with his employee discount.

    That's all great. But what about your EU following or specifically your support in the UK. we pay full price... Would be nice to have discount for us outside of the states. I've just paid $75.52 (45.99) for my X factor. You people have it easy!

    Edit: Thats the cheapest you can find it in UK to.

    Sorry to hear that, much of that is due to the fact we ship for free to our domestic accounts but our international accounts acquire shipping fees and taxes. Trust me when I say I offer all of our accounts over there the same awesome deals that I offer our domestic accounts. We have a strong following and do a lot of business over there and in Australia, and always do our best to get our intl customers the best possible pricing!

    Thanks for your support of X-Factor/Molecular Nutrition and I'll continually work to get you the best deals possible over there!

    Well your question has been addressed, I just wanted to add that you will see additional benefits adding GMS and Carnitine. Such as that found in Compete and Hemavol.
