Recovery Question for Barr

Dave,

Besides taking my daily Surge would the following ingredients provide additional benefits in regards to recovery and strength?

Citrulline Malate 3,500mg
L-Carnitine L-Tartrate 1,500mg
Beta-Alanine 1,600mg
Histidine 500mg

John, I like beta alanine, but using 6.4g/day (depending on bodyweight) can get expensive when using a combo supplement like that.

Citrulline has potential, but we don’t know enough about it yet. The possibility of decreasing natural nitric oxide production is bothersome.

The other two ingredients don’t do anything.

Hope that helps!
