Supplement Stacking

This past year I have been doing some experimenting with making my own supplement mixes with bulk-ordered powders.  The initial cost of the bulk-ordered powders is on the high side but the overall cost is much, much cheaper that anything you can order.

As an example, my latest concoction is a pre-workout mix that provides energy and focus with some fat-burning elements.

  • L-Citrulline DL-Malate 2:1
  • Beta Alanine
  • BCAA
  • Taurine
  • L-Theanine
  • Yohimbine

I’m still tweaking it but have been pretty happy with the results I’ve been getting so far.   It cost me just shy of $200 for all the ingredients but the per container cost that I can make with it is only around $18 and yields 30 servings.

This is about half the price of similar preworkouts and what I like is that I control the  amount and types of ingredients.  There’s no fillers or proprietary blends and no BS minuscule serving size of any ingredient just so I can list it on the label.  Everything in it is something I have chosen and researched and is at a dosage level to accomplish my goals.

I’m working on a spreadsheet that helps develop a recipe for you.  Look for a post here in a  week or so with it along with a breakdown of my pre-workout blend as an example.
