    I was just thinking maybe we could get our own reviews going in a collective thread, instead of just having them spread out between threads, or even a post where everyone has a chance to show what they're using, what they like, what they've liked in the past, etc..

    So for example I could say:

    Protein - ON blah blah
    Creatine - BSL blah blah
    Thermogenic - Vasopro blah blah

    any good?

    ZMA and NAC (high dose) are both still SUPER :wavey: (2 of the best supplements for the money, right behind creatine. :cool: )

    Spectrum Essentials Cold-Pressed flax oil - AWESOME STUFF, must have !

    KAL Fish Oil Capsules - GREAT STUFF, No bad aftertaste

    Yohimbine HCL - Most underrated cheap fat burner ever

    Ephedrine - Best cheap fat burner ever

    Ephedra - Way overrated.. way too many sides

    EPH 833 - Strong fat burner, but again way too many sides

    Twinlab male fuel - Good stuff ! Relatively overpriced however

    Twinlab Ripped Fuel original - Quality product but overpriced

    Black Star Labs 50 lbs WPC - Best flavoring system EVER !

    Syntrax Nectar Fuzzy Navel - Best tasting protein EVER !

    Syntrax Nectar Roadside Lemonade - Best tasting protein EVER !

    Syntrax Swole V2 - Awesome product, best when stacked with another micronized creatine

    Syntrax Isomatrix Reloaded Chocolate Hurricane - Solid product, I didn't like the taste

    Syntrax Isomatrix Reloaded Vanilla Sunrise - Solid product, I didn't like the taste

    Diesel Nutrition Extreme NOS Precursor - Most solid NO2 product so far

    Diesel Nutrition Deisel Fuel Reloaded - Good stuff

    Cell-Tech - 2nd Worst scam since the pet rock

    ATP Liquid Creatine - Worst scam since the pet rock

    Optimum 100% Whey Vanilla - Terrible flavor

    Optimum 100% Whey Chocolate - Awesome !

    Optimum 100% Whey Chocolate Mint - Awesome !

    Creapure creatine - Awesome ! Cheap !

    Taurine - Awesome ! (megadose, off days=no)

    N-Acetyl-Tyrosine - Good stuff, but relatively expensive (off days=no)

    NOW foods Pure Glycerine - Good stuff (1 hour pre-workout with carbs, off
    days=no)

    ZMA (Zinc Magnesium stack) - good stuff, deeper sleep

    Ribose - Solid product (pre-workout with carbs, off days=no)

    Ergopharm Citrulline Malate - Solid product, but way overpriced (get a Nitric Oxide product instead)

    Carnosine - Solid product, but no NOTICABLE results, hard to justify cost (1g every few hours, off days=yes)

    N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) - Possibly the most underrated supplement ever. I will never go without this stuff (megadose, off days=YES!)

    L-Citrulline powder - No noticable results so far :(

    L-arginine powder - Nasty taste, noticable results within DAYS ! (megadose with bulking diet)

    Anabolic Fitness NYC+ - Good stuff but there are rumors that the norephedrine was not pure.. i would go with cheaper EC / YC instead

    NOW Super Enzymes - Definately good stuff when protein intake > 400g

    EAS HMB - No noticable results that could possibly justify the price

    EAS Betagen - No noticable results that could possibly justify the price

    NOW Coq10 - No noticable anything. I highly doubt this products effectiveness

    Acetyl-L-carnitine (ALCAR) - good stuff for cutting cycle

    L-carnitine powder - good stuff for cutting cycle

    ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid) - Blah.. don't bother

    R-ala - Preworkout it is ok.. but don't expect much unless you can afford to megadose.

    Optimum Liquid BCAA - Don't bother

    Extreme formulations ICE - Good stuff (preworkout, during workout only)

    EAS Myoplex / Myoplex Deluxe Strawberry - Mixes too thick, but it's a SOLID product

    CLA - (EAS and other brands) No noticable results, even when megadosing

    SAN Tight - Sucks
    1fast Yohimbine - Can't say (part of stack)
    Vasopro - Good
    ON Whey - Good
    NOW Foods Psyllium Husk - Excellent
    ON ZMA - Great, now if only I had more time to sleep
    Avant Ab-Solved - Didn't really see real results until I went into caloric deficit.
    Kirkland Muti-Vitamin - :dunno: I just take it
    ON Fish Oil - Same as above.


    That's about all I've ever taken

    N02- may have worked but too damned expensive nontheless
    Cell tech- worked well for me but also too damn expensive

    is this THAT beneficial? it doesnt look like anything special. i bet it tastes good but if its basically the same as milk (sans lactose) then id rather just stick with that+ON

    It is more of a meal replacement than just protein. It tastes good and I have no stomach problem with it as I do with other protein powders (lactose intollerant).
    Often I mix it with egg whites, psyllum, prolab whey advantage and more flax seed oil...

    The original one that came out. Friend bought it for my birthday since it was out of my budget at the time....

    My brother who I used to workout with, and has a good eye for this type of detail noticed a difference.

    Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey - Vanilla: Fucking disgusting.

    Omega Sports Cre-Ethyl Thunder: Awesome CEE formulation @ a solid, solid price

    Universal - Storm: Contains Mag Creatine Chelate, very interesting. Amazingly inexpensive

    Get Diesel Nutrition - READY4WAR: Solid, no BS product. Especially recommend this for bigger guys for workout intensity.

    Optimum Nutrition - Vanilla Ice Cream: Sucks, just like every other vanilla protein

    Dymatize - Orange Dreamsicle: Good, but not as good as BSL - Orange

    Instone - Smooth Chocolate: Sucks. Way too thick.

    Syntrax Nectar - Crystal Sky: Good but not as good as nectar.

    Optimum Nutrition - Superior Amino 2222 liquid: Waste of time, money, and tastebuds. Go with a powder instead.

    Cytosport - Cytogainer - Cookies n Cream: Good, but not nearly as good as the hype.

    Myochem - Throttle 1400X: Cheap. Decent.

    All the Whey - Banana: Good. Not great.

    Substance WPI - Grape Splash: Pretty damn good. Very surprised.

    Optimum Nutrition - Anabolic Milk Protein: Choc flavor is delicious.

    All The Whey - Vanilla: Sucks.

    Legalgear - Dermasize: Works, but the price needs to come down. Don't bother taking it unless bulking. Don't take if skin is sensitive.

    Get Diesel Nutrition - Diesel Fuel: Fucking awesome. Stack with EC and lower the dosage to make it laste longer. This stuff roxorz.

    All the Whey - Chocolate: Good. But it doesn't live up the the hype. Cheap.

    Dymatize Elite Whey - Berry: Tastes ok, but sticks to the teeth.

    All The Whey - Orange: Good. But not as good as BSL orange

    Syntrax Nectar - Apple Ecstacy: Good, but not as good as Fuzzy navel

    Black Star Labs - Nitro Jet: Works, but tastes disgusting. Go with osmolyte instead + whey.

    Ergopharm - Stamino2: Go with Citrulline Malate bulk powder instead

    Ergopharm - 6OXO: Sucks ass as a standalone

    Get Diesel Nutrition - NOS XXX: Works, but I would try things like Avena sativa, tribulus, CEE + Nitric Oxide homebrew first...

    Syntrax Nectar - Roadside Lemonade: 2nd best nectar flavor. Delicious.

    Molecular Nutrition - Whey Fruity: Good. But not as good as nectar.

    Legalgear - Powertrain: Cheapest source of NADH period. Preworkout only, and buy it onsale for $ 16
