    TTA and carb loads


    What do you guys think of using TTA when doing carb loads?

    Does TTA help keep the fat off when overeating to gain muscle?

    It can...when combined with the right co-ingredients. By itself, not so much.

    If I'm not mistaken, I believe Salvia Miltiorrhiza has some great synergy with TTA. I know that RPN's DCP includes both of these ingredients to make up a little less than half of it's active ingredients.

    EDIT:
    Dcp + Tta

What i'm wondering (as I have a bottle of DCP on the way, as well as 100g of bulk TTA) is whether adding an additional 500mg 2 DCP caps 2x daily is going to be way too much TTA, and/or whether the Salvia Miltiorrhiza will still help with the extra TTA.

    The Salvia is added because it blocks DGAT, which is what converts Diacyglycerols to TRIacylglycerols (which is the form which your body stores in fat cells). Adding an additional 500 mg will increase the effectiveness, but will also bring with it the typical cramping seen in TTA supps. As long as that is not an issue, it would be more potent, for sure.

    You could try DCP before the meal, and perhaps a good ala product and sesamin.
