    Thanks for answers...
    Most people suggest dosing anti-inflammatories as far away from your workout as possible


  2. Would ArA be pointless if one uses 5 mg of prednisone daily? It is used to treat certain inflammatory diseases, so does that also mean it will negate ArA dosing?

    I canít imagine any oral corticosteroid playing well with an ArA supplement. How long are you on prednisone for

    I have to take 5 mg every day as part of a medicine regime for a transplant.

    Youíre going to be on some form of immunosuppressant for life, even after the prednisone... so Iíd probably nix the ArA. Plenty of other options that donít have anything to do with the inflammatory process.

  6. I know that. I've been on my medication for 6 years now.

    The half life of prednisone is 3-4 hours, so would supplementing with ArA outside of that window be effective?

    Sorry about that, I thought it was a new med you were just starting. Even though the half life is around 3-4 hours, itís still going to be in your system and working for 15-20+ hours, basically the entire day. And youíre on long term use as well...Personally I would not mix the two, but ArA is one of the few supplements that just about any doctor will be familiar with. You can speak with them about mixing the two. Not that ArA will kill you or anything, but in your situation itís probably not the best choice.

    My main concern is that the Prednisone will render it useless and it will be a waste of money.

    Thatís a very valid concern. I can tell you really want to run it but itís probably not the right choice for you.

  11. Is there really a problem going over 50 workouts? What would it be?

    And if you work out 5/6 days a week, is there a problem if you take it straight with only one day pause?

    @Jiigzz
    The research was done on 50 workout days IIRC. Therefore, no one can tell you what the negative implications may be. Some worry about systematic inflammation occurring if continuing ArA for too long. Iím honestly unsure how much of a concern it would be, though. Nonetheless, Iíd just run it for the 50 workout days.

    To your second question, thatíd be fine.

  13. Will intra's like Glycofuse deny the effect of ArA?

    I prefer to not use carbs intra with ArA but the difference is probably negligible, especially if the carbs are your typical 25-30g consumed slowly throughout your workout

    Yeah thats what i tought, but still wanted to check, thanks

  16. Just a quick question for whoever knows.

    Ive currently picked up X-Gels based on the information ive read it goes good with other supplements im taking. I just want to know what would be the recommended times to take all of them.

    Currently using:
    15g Fern Lecithin Granules (First Day for this)
    6 X-Gels (First day for this too)
    1 Serving Ergonine
    1 Serving of Performax VasoMax
    1 Serving of Sidewalk Kraka

    What i had done today was workout fasted taking ALL of my supplements above 45 minutes Pre-Workout. Is this too many at once or is this okay or what would you recommend, like spacing out the dosage?

    My main thing is getting the Optimal situation for X-Gels.

    Thanks!

    I also train fasted and i think 45 mins may be too long, my prew and ara kick in about 15 mins after consuming them, but i wouldnt worry too much about it, try taking it 30 mins before and see if it makes difference, just try out different timings to see how your body responds

  18. Yeah thanks, Im just trying to make sure that taking the Fern Lecithin (Which contains fats, but is an emulsifier) is okay to take at same time as X gels because they should be taken on an empty stomach.

  21. sorry if this has been asked before but i was wondering if I take the ARA 45 min before a workout on an emptyish stomach, and then a carb drink right before my workout if that would have any negitive impact on the ARA doing its thing?
