Competitive Edge Labs Epi-Plex Mini-Review

200966
200967


Background
42 Years old
Lifted weights for 25 years
Tracked my food and training since 1999
Natural


Basics
2,5 bottle run (so far)
1 cap with meal 1 (pre workout) and 1 cap with meal 5 (pre bed)
Calories in a slight deficit

Experience
This is a tricky one to put words to, but ill try my best. After about half a bottle i started to notice effects. What I mostly feel is some improved recovery and stamina. But also i feel really full and big while going thru my workouts. Being in a caloric deficit this usually isnt the case. But I cannot point to anything else that has changed in my day to day to attribute it. So im thinking it must be the Epi-Plex.

Conclusion
I love products that one can run as a staple. Having been training for ever I know that results that come fast also has a tendency to disappear as fast. So slow and steady is my jam. Im really enjoying Epi-Plex and have for that reason another 2 bottles ready to go!
In my book this is another home run for CEL!​

Thank you for posting the review. Your thread you have for the ongoing reviews is incredible in terms of detail. Thank you for posting this outside of it as well for anyone that may not have seen your other thread or just wanted a quick summary.

Did you always dose at 2 caps?

I’m just wondering about dosage because I’ve read (and could be wrong) that 200-300mg is the standard dose, so would 600mg be overkill? I’ve even heard people on here saying that they got best results at 3 caps, and that seems super overkill?

Now, maybe it’s not at 100% Epi, so maybe the dosage is lower than 300mg per cap?

I’m just wondering because I have 2 bottles and I’ve been running 300mg per day and I’ve noticed some increased endurance, but I’d love to see it at maximum potential. I chose to dose 1 cap based on what I read, but also because (IIRC - it was years ago) ep1c was a 300mg dose, and I got great results from that.

Any input on dosing info, and could anyone shed any light on what kind of side effects could come from a dose of 600mg or even 900mg as some others I’ve read have been running?

Thanks!

I am still using this product and yes ive kept it at 2 caps a day. Ive also read that many enjoy it at 3 caps, i havent tried that yet but it might be worth trying for a month. See if I can feel any difference now that ive been using this for so long.

Epi-Plex IS dosed at 300mg per caps so you are absolutely getting your moneys worth.

I think @sns8778 runs it at 3 caps a day so we can see what he has to say. I have not heard of any sides from taking 600mg or 900mg myself.

300mg is totally fine imo .. i have ran it at 2 caps and i do notice more benefits

SNS/CEL are 2 companies that will always give you more for lesser price

600mg - i felt like i have been on a mild sarm cycle high endurance feel
900mg although i did try it, i didnt feel much diff so stayed at 2 caps .. i do know few people that love it at 900 mg

Epi-Plex is 300 mg. actual Epicatechin per capsule and that is stated clearly on the label.

The suggested daily dose for Epicatechin is 600 mg. per day.

The reason that other companies may hide their dosages in proprietary blends or suggest lower dosages is because Epicatechin is an expensive raw material so doing so helps keep their costs down and provides better margins for them. We identify exactly how much is in our products and suggest the correct daily dosage.

There are a lot of people that really enjoy 900 mg. per day, and no, that would not be overkill. I use 600 mg. daily and have increased it to 900 mg. per day myself during periods where I was doing more cardio &/or endurance based training.

Ep1c also suggested 600 mg. per day total, although theirs was mixed with phosphatidylcholine and not 100% epicatechin.

The people running the correct daily dose at 600 mg. per day are going to get better results than people running half the daily dose. As for 900 mg. per day, I wouldn't expect any side effects out of that as many, many people do it; it would just be a matter of personal response as to whether you responded better to it and felt like it was worth it to do that dose.

I've ran it at 3 caps per day when doing more cardio or endurance type training and I can definitely tell a difference. A lot of people that I know that do endurance based sports like MMA and Boxing love the 3 caps per day. When not doing more endurance based training, I stay on 2 caps per day year round because in addition to the performance enhancement aspects, it has so many overall health benefits.

And thank you for pointing that out - that it is 300 mg. per cap.

It amazes me that we are one of the only brands that don't hide their dose in a prop blend and then to see a statement that 'maybe its not 100% Epicatechin' - we clearly state on our label that it is 300 mg. of actual Epicatechin per capsule.

Thanks! I’m going to bump up to 600mg

No problem at all. I'm glad to help in any way that I can. I think you'll like it a lot better at 600 mg.
