What in your experience are some of the least effective supplements you've used in the past couple years?
We've all been there, spent our hard earned money and saw little to no results.
Let's hear it!
Pf3 by MAN,bio grow by isatori,any oral igf1s including deer antler,all creatines except monohydrate,hcl,or nitrate,green tea extract*much rather fix cinnamon and ginger green tea to drink* ecdysterone,and finally I feel cla is useless for me now due to the studies seem to cater more to the obese.

Waste of money in my experience:
1. HGH Mass
2. Versa-1 ( probably just a non-responder)

Remember during beta testing when fears of Versa-1 being another Pink Magic (in terms of efficacy) were hotly denied? Dare we make that assumption again, here?

I really wanted this supp to work, maybe I should revisit it but use it in conjunction with something else.

Sometimes hype works TOO well and the supp, while useful, can't match the expectations it garnered.

versa 1 did nothing for me personally.
Ecdy products never did much for me and hicamax.

Versa was hyped up so much people may have been taking dirt and just noticing the placebo effect

I never spend a dollar on it though

We have an entire forum full of non responders I think lol.

I would rather spend my money on Anabeta Elite and ArA. I know they work! No trying to be an underdog and fix a broken product there lol...

Raising hand. I don't know what it is with my body chemistry but I have to dose everything higher than the recommended doses to get any effect. Not just supplements either. I have to dose OTC medications and prescription medications higher than recommended for them to be effective. I just finished up a first run with Anabeta Elite and didn't notice much. No hunger increase, no strength gain, just a little additional muscle fullness.

Ik everyone here are PES lovers and so am I but Anabeta Elite is on my list. I ran two bottles before and didn't see anything.

Might give it one last shot

Versa 1- is on the list if taken alone. Great product stacked with a pre workout IMO

alphamine...unless feeling like crap is effective
versa 1
hghup....again do negative effective count as effective?
powerfull
zma doesn't do anything for me either, similar effects to hghup

daa is pretty useless for gym results too even though it does boost libido and well being

Haven't heard very many complaints with Alphamine....on any forum. Maybe I could send a sample of the international version.

I ran two 120 count bottles. The first bottle at 4 capsules a day. When I started the second bottle I upped it to 5 capsules a day. I did notice some additional muscle fullness, similar to taking a GDA, but that was about it. I suspect if I upped the dose to 6 capsules a day I'd benefit even more but at the point the cost:benefit ratio is questionable.

No appetite control or thermo effect even at 3 scoops for me. I'd have commented but any mention of Alphamine brings Touey out of hiding.

I almost forgot about that stuff! I thought I was sick the first time I took a dump after taking that. And it mixed like shat all clumpy!

I have read other reviews on it and it seems that the general consensus is that it works really well when stacked with other products test booster ARA and sups like that

This is my fourth day taking Alphamine and I haven't noticed any thermo effects either, even at the gym. The appetite suppression is there though, I'd say it's light-moderate in intensity which is perfect in my opinion. I do shake my tub before every use.

I like to focus on one supplement at a time so I can figure out if I'm responding to it. Stacking it with other compounds makes it difficult to figure out what exactly is working.

I started ArA shortly after finishing the Anabeta Elite and noticed the ArA effects immediately. Most notably strength increases and muscle fullness/pumps. That's at the recommended dose of 4 caps (1 gram) pre-workout. However, in my typical non-responder fashion I get none of the DOMS that everyone associates with ArA. Not that I'm a big fan of DOMS, I just wonder why I have to overdose everything to get comparable results/effects as other people.

Well at 6' 225 your a big boy, and I say that as a complement :) But TBH the intense DOMS hasnt really hit me either. I mean I get them due to the quality of work outs that im getting but they are in no way debilitating.

I'd say it's probably a good idea to stay away from cocaine. You'd have an expensive habit.

McCrew, I just read your entire Xgels/Anabeta log. Did you notice better results when you increased from 4 to 6 Xgels? You got great results with that stack!

Your cocaine reference reminds me of a story. About 4 years ago I had a minor outpatient surgical procedure. The doc prescribed me a single (1) seconal capsule that he instructed me to take ~45 minutes before my surgery. The morning of the surgery I took the seconal and arrived at his office 45 minutes later. I didn't feel a thing. We waited around past the original scheduled surgery time to see if it started to work. I did start to slur my words a bit but that was about it. The doc then decided to administer an IV drip sedative that did finally put me to sleep but then I woke up during the surgery. Ouch.

I'd be satisfied with just 1 good one!

Off the top of my head from the last couple of years

Diesel Test Hardcore...slight stim effect at first. Then nothing.
Phytoserms...no discernible benefit
Triazole.....no discernible benefit
Fadogia...made my boys a little fuller...other than that no benefit.
Stoked....no discernible benefit
Perform....no discernible benefit
Testopro...no discernible benefit
Couple others I don't remember the names but same scenario.

Beginning to think I should just save my money lol

Things I have noticed a benefit from (not necessarily workout related)

Ashwaghanda...noticed increased relaxation, slightly increased libido
Zinc...knocks me out like a light. Also slightly increases libido after a few days.
D-limonene...practically eliminated my chronic heartburn
Taurine and magnesium...better sleep. Slightly lowers my blood pressure.

Nearly got some Versa-1, glad I saved my money.

What's te general consensus on Anabeta/ Anabeta Elite? I'm always sceptical of herbs but would love to try either.

Solid! Actually i tend to think that we "supplement consumers, are forcing and effect" it counters that we have bought and wasted our money, as an result we post back that the supplements actually worked and that we gained 10lbs on the bench only due to the supplement it self

Just thinking about JP8 just makes me gag. That stuff tasted bad.

Pink magic and versa1
haha i agreee...it was the first supplement i ever threw away

i always tell the story how i took 1 serving to work with me, mixed it in water and in a combined effort, everyone at work couldn't finish just 1 serving....i drank it a few times preworkout and it was on the lower end of results for a preworkout, add that with the taste and thats why it falls in this thread
