    Thumbs up TTA and DCP Feedback


    Ok, so ive been taking DCP for about three weeks and ive noticed i look a little puffier. I heard from one of my friends that its normal to get water bloat while taking a TTA product. So my question is has anyone else experienced this bloating side effect, and if so, after you stopped taking this product did you look leaner than when you started. Thanks in advance.

    Some people do hold a little water while using DCP. It should go away a few days after you stop taking it.

    Could you comment on the endurance properties some report using DCP? I used it late last year, but it was during a change in training protocols... so I couldn't really judge how my endurance was improved with the product.

    Some users have stated that DCP increases endurance, but I've also read the exact opposite. For a runner, what would you say? Yea or nay

    I think it screws around with your endurance cause ive been getting more cramps from the TTA.

    Anybody else have any input on your results with DCP?

    I can take 3grams a day, and I get no cramps, until about 3 weeks in.. they can come on strong, just lay off to 1.5g of TTA and its fine...

    Bulk TTA gave me horrific cramps
    DCP = no cramps, and the increased endurance people speak of from DCP is the PCAR

    McBurly has it correct. PLCAR is used to treat Chronic fatigue, and has a special affinity for both muscle and cardiac cells, increasing fuel availability to them. In addition, the propionate ester is cleaved and formed in Succinate, which is a vitall KREBS intermediate. The combination VASTLY increases endurance.

    I do not think a direct comparison between TTA and DCP is fair. As you know, TTA is a compound in DCP. TTA is known to cause cramps in some individuals. For precisely this reason, DCP contains Potassium Pyruvate, an advanced potassium form, to neutralize this cramping effect.
    In terms of endurance, I can postulate at least one pathway through which DCP can produce an enhancement in endurance levels. DCP contains Priopionyl-L-Carnitine. Propionyl-l-carnitine has a special affinity for heart, endothelial, and muscle cells. It quickly penetrates these tissues and delivers benefits ranging from the protection of heart muscles to neutralizing fatigue via elevation of muscle glycogen stores. This is important. Furthermore, the potassium in DCP may help to stabilize electrolyte levels in the body, leading to performance enhancement. Something else: The bonding of potassium to pyruvate may also contribute to energy metabolism. As you recall, pyruvate is an intermediate of the Krebs-Cycle, a crucial component of energy metabolism.

    I am currently on 9 caps per day. I would have loved to go beyond this, but I have only three tubs that I want to take for three months straight for my stack. Wish I had the flexibility to increase my daily dose to 12 per day.

    If you wanna ditch the water now, you could try Showtime but I don't imagine it will do good things for cramps.

    I've been taking in 3g+ a day of TTA (with some from DCP, some from bulk) for about a month now, and i'm hoping I have some bloat so that when I stop I look even leaner after the water disappears

    I don't get very much bloat on DCP at all. Perhaps with higher doses of TTA it would cause some more prominent effects of bloating, but the amount we used shouldn't pose such a problem for bloat if you don't add extra TTA into it. Arguably the extra TTA could help further fat loss though, this is a trade off that we took, and added in other ingredients to support fat loss so you don't need as much TTA.

    And that is one advantage of preferring a well-rounded formula such as DCP to concentrating on single compounds such as TTA.

    A good starting dose would be 4 in the am 2 before workout or in the afternoon and 2 in the evening. Then you can adjust your dose as needed.

    Recommended dosage is 6 caps, and that is a good starting point. After assessing tolerance, add another capsules to your preworkout dose (for increased endurance and fat burning).

    Afterwards, if you want to increase further and you know for a fact you will be eating a less-than-stellar meal, add another capsule before that meal.

    alright thanks. As far as tolerance are you referring to the
    TTA and cramps?

    Yes, as well as any other effects you notice (though there shouldn't be too many other side effects.)
