    Dosing of ETS

    The container says that you need to take 4 in the morning and 4 at night. Is this 100% correct. I know that with a lot of sups you can cut your doses is half and still see similar results. Not that I am saying this is one of those, but I just wanted to get an idea of how everyone else is dosing this.

    I'll be frank and tell you that you can probably do a half dose and see very good results.

    Give it a try and let everyone here know how it works.

    Also, i just started on creatine 500 again so i am a bit concerned that if i start ets right now i will not be able to tell the difference in my results as clearly as if i were running it alone. Since i will most likely start cutitng and I have had some joint issues i will probably just start taking it anyway.

    The effects from ETS are quite different than from creatine for the most part. Creatine increases strength but does little for recovery and soreness.

    Don't ask how much I take, I take more than I would recommend to anyone else as a personal experiment.

    I would suggest you take 4 capsules in the morning if you want to go with the half dose.

    if you were to do half dose (just 4 every morning) would it be more effective to take some at night on really hard training days, or is it something that you need to get into your system? (i believe w/ glucosamine it's built up to be effective, so taking an extra pill after experiencing pain wouldn't rush relief. that's the impression i get, may be wrong)

    I'm trying it right now with 4 in the morning every day, and 4 at night on days I train, which is basically about every day.

    It's only been about going on two weeks so far. My chest usually always gets brutally sore, I didn't notice it being sore much after this weeks training session. Same goes for my quads, but that wasn't the greatest workout. I can't tell if my back pain has been reduced yet, since I've only begun deadlifting again recently my back is getting very sore. It may have been slightly less sore this week, I'll have a better analysis next week.

    would it make sense to take even more on days that you train with big exercises like deads or squats?
    I'm comtemplating ordering some soon.

    You want to be careful with the dosing due to the vitamin and mineral content.

    If I bought some microlactin seperately, would it make sense to add some more on those days on top of the 2 doses of ETS
