    Yeah, imagine the issues one would face if a product had something like 250 mg of ARA and 25 mg of forskolin per cap, it'd be terrible.

    I think 5mg would be the dose you needed

    But questions @Synapsin and @mr.cooper69

    If something were to enhance cox2 expression theoretically would you need less ara?

    Then you would need 5g of ArA to get 100mg forskolin lol. I think if anything 100mg ArA/5mg forskolin. (1g ArA = 50mg fors, 1.5g ArA = 75mg fors, 2g ArA = 100mg fors). Again, as others said I believe ArA is far better off being a standalone than trying to add in other ingr. because of the wide range of doses people use.

    Also interested in your Q, bump

    No you wouldn't

    1 cap ara = 250mg.

    1.5g ara = 6 caps.

    5mg/cap is 30mg

    Toleration if forskolin differs. You want lowest appreciable dose then you can add to it

    This has seemed to be the case even with F-95. Some just can't tolerate it for whatever reason.

    I have a high tolerance, usually run 100-125mg so I kind of overlooked that. Good point

    No. And that is a horrible endpoint to seek

    That's what I was thinking, 5-10mg per cap could be pretty ideal.

    With it having such mixed feedback on GI issues, you have a very good point about it probably being better kept separate/added to an existing ArA product though.

    Really excited to see what your idea is, and Im hoping it comes to fruition!!

    OK, so hypothetical: could one attack X Factor, ALCAR, GMS, and Tropinol for max absorption and gains? Just trying to make sure I've understood everything to this point.

    Yes, absolutely. That would make for a potent stack!

    So one more for you: I currently have the stack previously mentioned ready to go. A friend of mine is heading overseas for his job for a year and has 2 bottles of MAN PR-XT he wants to sell to me for cheap. Would that be stackable with everything else or would that be overkill?

    I can't really be fasted for more than an hour and a half before my lift because I have a pretty tight schedule, would it still be okay to take ArA if I take forskolin with it?

    Can you explain what the forskolin does in this situation? I've searched around but can't find anything clear

    Absolutely, you can take your X-Factor with forskolin and with or without food, depending on what your schedule allows for.

    Great feedback, I lean out rapidly on X-Factor and so do many of our customers. It's a strange thing actually, many buy it to gain size and report back they only gained a few lbs but look much leaner so they are beyond pleased.

    And just so happened it seems like the effects build up even when you stop taking it. Seems to carry over another 10 days or so

    This for sure. I noticed I was still gaining after stopping my ArA for roughly another 10-14 days.

    Yes sir, we have heard the effects last for a good 2-3 weeks post cycle for a decade now, such a damn cool effect. Most supplements dont even work while you're taking them, let alone afterwards haha.
