    Thanks!!
    NAC is the gold standard of over the counter supplements. Milk Thistle is as good as garbage.

    Austinite, didn't you have a "pump supplement" thread. I can't seem to find it. What do you think about nitrate capsules?

    Pump? No not really. The vascularity stack brings killer pumps. listed at the end of OP in this thread.

    What are nitrate caps? Got the data sheet?

    Hey Aust - I meant to post in here last week. The BBC released an artical on Vitamin D.

    Also last night on TV was a little documentary called 'Trust me, Im a doctor' - and it basically was saying that everyone gets all their RDA of vitamins from an average diet. Everything else is wasted, and therefore vitamin supplements are wasted unless you are known to have a deficiency.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode...tor_Episode_2/


    Not exactly the most informative, but thought it might interest you slightly.

    I wouldn't use it... Doesn't hurt but not exactly beneficial.

    RDA is a joke and based on 2000 calorie diet. I guess all of my blood work is fake, lol.

    I have not seen the video, but can you give me the reason ? Because science says otherwise.

    This would be a 20 page post if I went into details on how wrong that statement/video is. It's like saying the moon does not exist. But give me any scientific evidence from that video and I will prove it wrong. I just don't want to argue a random video with no basis, you know what I mean?

    We have to understand that healthy does not mean optimum. Healthy ranges just keeps you out of deficiency with no side effects. Not optimum.

    600 mg at least every other day is fine. I prefer daily. Take it any time of the day, just be consistent daily with your timing. I take it on empty stomach in the morning.

    I was reading in 'Marcus diary' thread and saw that after a intense hit workout you supplemented with 9 grams of arginine. You stated it was to boost the natural HGH production. Is that recommended for intense workouts?
    Just curious on the reason for 9 grams before bed. Is that a standard protocol for you?

    That is what you can do before bed, not necessarily post workout. 5 to 9 grams will amplify resting growth hormone secretin.

    Ok because I've been following your vascular stack for almost a month now and its been workjng very well. Just as a quick side note are there any other supplements that amplify the growth hormone secretion? I heard some carbs before bed also does the trick.

    GABA can. I don't know about carbs, seriously doubt it.

    Ok great. Thank you for the quick replies. I will definitely get my hands on some GABA. Definitely interesting to learn that about the arginine.
    Just to be sure.
    5-9 grams of arginine before bed.
    How much GABA do you recommend before bed?

    2 to 3 grams of Gaba would suffice.

    Hey austinite,

    I feel like I've been racking your brain from all corners of the web lately. So I've been compiling a shopping list online for vitamins/amino acids/ and other supplements you've recommended in the past. I train fasted (Mostly due to my IF protocol) and I've always taken a product like Scivation Xtend, or Modern BCAA powder which is mostly rich in Leucine. I know your vascularity stack is carefully formulated for a pre-workout supplement, but do I have to take extra precaution if I'm training fasted? For example, should I add some electrolytes, Leucine, Glutamine, B6, etc to prevent catabolism in a fasted state? I know this would be considered modifying your stack (which I'm not trying to do i swear :P) but I just dont want to eliminate an aspect to pre-workout supplementation that might be necessary when training fasted.

    The vascularity stack is mostly all amino acids. If you maintain the doses, you can add whatever you want to it. It will be fine.

    The fat loss stack is precious to me. Others, not so much Play with it as you wish. And good idea by the way.

    Sounds good. Any recommendations as to what is absolutely necessary when training fasted? Like I mentioned before, the pre-packaged amino mixes usually emphasize glutamine, leucine, isoleucine, valine, B6, and potassium/sodium.

    I never train fasted so I don't have an experienced opinion. But it looks like you've got BCAA's with B6. Can't go wrong with those really.

    Having a hard time finding L-Arginine (micronized).

    Would this work - Amazon.com: BulkSupplements Pure L-Arginine Base Powder (100 grams): Health & Personal Care

    Hey austinite,
    I see you advice Maca for people on TRT, well I'm not on TRT but I wanted to ask you: what about if I supplement Maca during my pct? or should I wait to finish the PCT first and let the hormones regulate themselves for a month or 2 before start taking it?

    ps: my pct is working fine right now, "morning wood always present , no emotional issue".

    I might be the only idiot having a hard time with this... but regarding the vascularity stack what's the easiest/most efficient way to pre-weigh and store all these powders by dose? Is it stupid if I put all the powders for preworkout, post workout, and bedtime in water bottles and store in the fridge? I feel like I'm wasting so much time each day weighing out all my powders as needed. Feel free to share

    why are you weighing them each time? You only need to weigh them one time when you first get them. Then just use whatever volume that was. Tablespoon, teaspoon, etc...

    Well i'm not weighing them each time, I just meant i'm individually scooping out each powder everytime. I guess i'm just being lazy, but I've been trying to devise a way to pre-weigh them into pre-workout, post-workout and bed time. Is it bad to put them in water and in the fridge overnight?

    Overnight? That's all I really need. I can deal with doing it the night before but when I leave for school and work in the morning and I'm pressed for time, the last thing I want to do is deal with all the scooping lol

    What are thoughts on L-Carnitine. Have you noticed a difference taking it vs. not taking it? Is it very dose dependent? I've taken it in the past at smaller doses and didn't see much effect.

    Do you think it adds any additional benefit for people trying your fat loss stack?

    Thanks!!

    I posted my thought in this very thread. In the original post.

    If you add anything to my at loss stack, it wouldn't be my stack
