If you're getting bored with your supplements and need to spice things up give it a whirl, but I'd never make it a staple or cut into my casein, isolate, and BCAA budget for any of it.
thank you, FMHF
and use your BRAIN, Leucoethiops, if your body is able to handle 5X5 AT 230 LBS do you SERIOUSLY think it's NATURAL and HEALTHY for you to take SYNTHETIC SHIT (without enough research done on it, even if it is FDA, which is a joke and ran by private companies just like the USDA, approved because you can't study 30+ results of NO not to mention creatine WITH DANGEROUSLY HIGH LEVELS OF CAFFEINE IN IT WHEN THE PRODUCT HASN'T BEEN ON THE MARKET MORE THAN 5, now can you?) and push you past your plateau...
k, i'm going to share some articles since you don't wanna google and this is from an MMA site actually so

p.s. I am not holier than thou, I am simply someone who has been there and done that and studied past the marketing b.s.
I also had two friends OD to the point where we had to call EMTs for them, one by simple using 2 grams too much of Superpump 250 and the other by using about 1/3 of a scoop too much of NO Xplode...
