any flavor is pretty good from ON it is pretty pricey tho for just protein
could go with something like this

100% Whey Power by Bodybuilding.com Foundation Series - Lowest Prices for 100% Whey Power!

10 pounds for 80bucks is solid

protein powder is basic they are all more or less the same imo

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

Taste wise, ON is not that great. Mixes well though. I had french vanilla (gross imo) and extreme milk chocolate (was decent).

Just tried BSN Syntha-6 in cookies n cream and choco pb cup. Both tasted excellent. I assume their vanilla should be good as well.

Apparently "Giant Sports" Vanilla actually tastes like real vanilla, but I have yet to try that.

if i decide to take another brand of creatine, should i be letting i let myself off creatine for a period of time before starting to take a new brand? or should it be okay for me to just get started?

Thanks in advanced.

Interesting tidbit.. I've heard some talk about lawsuits and bla bla against Craze becuase of trace amount of amphetamines. I work in a health centre that does urine drug screens. Took 1.5 scoops this morning around 8ish, just tested myself at 1:15 PM, and test was positive enough to warrant suspension for lab testing. Did a second test just to be sure, and sure enough, positive. Going to do some testing for next few days with dosing and more tests. Just an FYI
just came across this on youtube, not sure how credible

Gosh all this side-effect/drug talk on supplements is making me slightly paranoid...

light as in a lightbulb or the sun? i noticed while ive been taking it (3 tubs since july) my eye feels really exposed and if its ever windy my eyes turn red from the wind as if theirs no moisture in them, im talking bout the actual eyeball, could be something else tho (like 5 hours of sleep a day)

but if i workout without it i feel tired as fuk, i dont really feel really pumped with it, but just the thought that i took it gives me energy (strong placebo) so i cut down recently to 1 scoop from 2-3, feelsgoodman

-zma supposed to give you better sleep, i dont see a difference when taking it but some others do
-melatonin supposed to make you sleepy, never tried it
-zma and melatonin can cause sleep paralysis if taken together
-GABA doesnt cross the blood brain barrier but Phenibut does

Everything 20% off at supplementsource.ca if you want to avoid possibly getting dinged. Pretty good prices there too. Anyone know of other good sales?

I would suggest getting a non branded version (since they all use the same source) and take 2 caps instead of 3. Or if you can't get unbranded, buy Zn and Mg separately.

Yeah, I've been off creatine for almost two months now. Waiting for my online order from bb.com. I ordered the house brand micronized creatine.

I believe your blend was 45 mg Zinc, 450 Magnesium
Posted via RS Mobile
The 'custom' idea was just to see how you could match ZMA dosage for much less money. 20/300 is enough imo. That's still 133% RDI Zn and 75% RDI Mg. If you are doing custom, I guess you could bump up the Mg. Just don't do it so much that the laxative effect kicks in!
