So 750mg PA is useless?

“The supplement we used was a commercial product containing 750 mg of Mediator PA.”

That study trained 3 days per week

This older study trained 4 days and had positive results

Honestly, I am.one who tried Micro PA when it came out and I have tried different doses:

750mg= it did nothing for me
1.5g= things began to happen
3g= amazing musclefullness,strength,size , appetite ++


#6

never tried it.


#7

I have been doing Lecithin granules (1.2g PA) and have seen huge gains in strength, some weight gain, overall vascularity. I haven’t tried 3g…but maybe I should.


#8

Hey MM (or anyone) do you know if Sunflower Lecithin also has PA in it?


#9

those things are like pure omega 6 so take that into account mate

appears it does have it in it.


#11

damn. that would be a no-go then lol


#12

I see now after taking another look at the label. Sad I didn’t look at it before cause I was solely concerned with phosphatidic acid. My blood work didn’t come back abnormal when I got it done, but it is something to take into account, especially if I plan on using gear. But damn it seems to work so well!


#13

Just take more Omega 3’s

My thoughts as well.
