    Thinking of putting in a order for it sometime next week. $42 for 90 servings.

    I'm considering loading regular creatine mono next week, and then switching over to Betagen the following week once it arrives.

    Thoughts?

    i didn't notice anything significant when i took it like 7 years ago.
    i did overload on protein powder back then (stupid) and it made me shit powder literally, and betagen made that stop happening.
    here was my shake

    eas myoplex deluxe shake
    about 20-24 oz of milk
    2 scoops of designer whey
    a scoop of peanutbutter
    1 banana

    and i took that 3 times a day :o

    Good lord. Protein overload.... did you get any from your diet?

    I assume they didn't have the flavored shit back then? I can't imagine mixing a chocolate whey shake with some rasberry flavored Betagen.

    i took betagen and phosphgen hp together, both were fruit punch.

    i also ate a shit load of protein.
    in the AM i ate 12 egg whites with a bowl of pasta (no sauce)
    lunch and dinner i ate a bowl of tuna and a bowl of pasta (no sauce)

    that was my lowest weight of 175 lbs back then. now im 258lbs lol

    Didn't do much for me...

    I prefer straight creatine mono or CEE for the price you pay.

    I'll give it a shot this time to see how it goes, I'm considering blending about another 2-3g of regular creatine mono with it, since Betagen only has 2g creatine.
