I'm not trying to say one is better than the other or sh!t talk ash They both are lacking multiple studies showing the benefits they claim. I'm trying to look at it from a purely scientific perspective. I follow the skeptical ideology of Carl Sagan and his book The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark. For a quick overview, here is his Baloney Detection Kit. I'm also a big fan of Quackwatch (although I think the author got too old and is no longer updating the site) as well as the book Muscles, Speed, and Lies: What the Sport Supplement Industry Does Not Want Athletes or Consumers to Know. It's my personal opinion that probably 98% of all supplements are bullsh!t, and the 2% that work are simply under looked because people are looking for the next best thing..Again I like PS. There are other benefits. There does appear some benefit to stress as well, but that appears not cortisol related, in comparison to Ash it is still going to be more expensive, and there would be other routes to take (but I regularly take 300mg PS so this isn't anti-PS).
Pretty much this. I don't care if you like PS more than Ash, we all can have things we enjoy more than others, just no need to try and act like it has no research and come out with a strong statement AGAINST it. Just seems like some weird logic to me. It seems unfairly forgiving to one side and condemning to the other.
