      I have a tough request:

      Caffeine/stimulant based supps have zero effect on me and I think I have a handle on it. I have the genetic inclination towards ADD. My brother was diagnosed early with ADHD and then my dad was diagnosed with Adult ADD. I don't have any of the tendencies but I have noticed that stimulants do jack squat for me, for example I can drink a double espresso and go to bed.

      So, my quest is to find a good supp that works in a non-stimulant fashion. Any recommendations? I'm mainly looking for something for recovery since I've been staying sore longer in my old age.

      Rhodiola rosea is amazing for clear energy and is great for you with regards to stress. It's been around forever, but starting to get notice for how long it lasts and how good it is for you, so it is starting to get added into some pwos.

      how much coffee do you drink?

      the more addicted to caffeine a person is, the less affect it will have on them.

      I NEVER drink coffee so most of those stimulant supplements make me bounce off the walls on a half dose. my girlfriend drinks coffee all the time, caffeine does nothing for her now

      2 a day, usually a double espresso in the morning and a hand-poured in the afternoon, but my coffee intake has fluctuated over the years but my aversion to stimulants has always been there.

      Not everybody is affected. Myself, I feel like I am having a heart attack and my skin turns hot, red, and blotchy.

      You would think so but tests show I am vitamin D deficient and need to take it, weird too because I love the sun and am always out in it.

      one wouldnt take all of those at the same time...right!?! 3 deitary supplements seem a bit intense, no?

    24. 03-23-2012 01:03 PM #49
      did you google the supplements in question? or did you just ignore me and want me to do all your research for you.

      eca stack is 3 supplements already. it is used on/off opposite of clen, which is a grey market bronchodilator.

      t3 is a thyroid hormone that your body produces naturally.

      now ask yourself this, why would the number of supplements matter if you don't know what any of them do anyway?

      i did google all of them mentioned.

      but like i said.... i know nothing about this. a good majority of what i found were or led to some sort of endorsement or what seemed to be more 'hardcore' bodybuilding forums. wasnt able to spend a whole lot of time just yet reading about them.

      nevermind
