Do they mix well???

Hi guys, just a quick question, is it still possible to take other supplements such as creatine, NO, taurine, l arginine, l carnitine etc etc, along with a steroid cycle?

Would there still be benefits in using these?

    Music to my ears friend, phew thank god i wont have to splash out a fortune on all those supps again lol.

    I know i will still definately be taking my protein but will it still be beneficial to take a multi vitamin (animal pak, orange triad etc) and bcaa's?

    I disagree ( sorry )

    Give the creatine a miss, it stresses the body, but your need for nutrients increase with juice, not decreases. I up my glutamine a little, and treble my leucine intake. And I stay on the aakg. Just my opinion though.

    [off topic] also they shouldn't be pricey - get to one of the bulk suppliers who sponsor this board. I pay pennies for my supps, and make up my own pre and post mixes. [/off topic]

    How?


    Creatine is fine to use on cycle. It's ludicrous to think that it won't exert any effect purely because you're using steroids

    Thank you!

    I've read so many posts with people saying that creatine is useless on cycle and I've never seen a shred of proof to back it up.

    I suppose that's one of those common myths that should be put down as "bro-telligence".

    I think it does exactly the same thing on a cycle as off, and has benefit.

    However, I also think it is damaging to the liver and kidneys, so I remove it from my diet when taking more powerful compounds which also put stress on the liver and/or kidneys.

    I use optimum bcaa's just now so i will probably stick with them and maybe up the dosage since my body will be under stress on a cycle. Will be using a good multi vitamin also, more than likely it will be Animal Pak since its one of the best out there.

    Only in those with pre-existing kidney/liver disease or those in a constant state of dehydation.

    ^^^ I've read no end of reports which conclude it is damaging. Even the manufacturers advice it to be cycled.

    Also raises blood pressure, something else which is fine off-cycle, but I'd rather avoid while on.

    I like to see some reports that credibly conclude that creatine is damaging to healthy athletes.

    Manufacturers will write anything if it might possibly save them from litigation.



    Also raises blood pressure, something else which is fine off-cycle, but I'd rather avoid while on.



    It doesn't raise mine

    Also, raised blood pressure is never fine.


    By all means bertie, don't use creatine whilst on if you don't wish to. But for those considering the possibility, lets not scare them off with conjecture.

    Reports or clinical/medical studies? Because I've read no-end of clinical studies which conclude an amazing safety profile even for extended periods.

    Reports however are only author opinion. You must look beyond their opinion and ascertain whether that opinion is based upon credible evidence.
