Does diet soda or diet green tea affect the absorption of any of the Animal products? I consume these drinks to mask the taste of tuna and Pak,Pump,Flex,Nitro are my staples. I have also used Cuts.

Do you suggest using 2 paks a day for everyone, or is one pak and a few standard multis ok to make up the difference?

From all that I've read about the Pak (website, FAQs and the can itself), I believe one Pak is enough unless you are preparing for a show.

How many consecutive cycles do you suggest we use with products such as m-stak, stak 2, etc....to see decent results?

1 cycle then off? 3 cycles? a year?.....

I believe you can use m-stak and or stak 2 for up to 6 months, as long as you follow the 3 week on 1 week off strategy. I remember reading this in the animal pak owners manuel...those still around?

could you be more specific? are you tryin' to lose weight or fat? I guess fat... well, if you're on a good diet, and doing cardio, this stack can definitely help you... by that I mean you're making sure you're losing fat, and not muscle...

I'm only 20, but I'd like to try Stak 2. Is 20 years a little too young for this product?
I've had great results with M-Stak, but I know that I should switch things up eventually. Would Stak 2 be bad for someone at my age?

I doubt it would be bad but it might not be so good, your test levels should be pretty high already

This is a must answered question as there is conflicting info in the forum....

Your body can't digest all of that protein in one serving. On average your body can only consume 30-35 grams of protein per serving. Waht you need is more calories in order to gain the mass you are looking for.

Try this. Go on a cycle of your products for 8 weeks consecutively and then take 2 weeks off. Then go back on for another 6 weeks and then take 2 weeks off again. Repeat this cycle as you feel necessary. Try this and see how its works.

I noticed that TEST has a few things that you want to avoid taking into your system while you are on it, one of which is white willow bark and or anti inflamitories. I am about to start taking carnitech with my stack and was wondering if the white willow bark would affect the cuts or stak that I am taking as well. If not I was wondering what I should avoid consuming with those products if anything.

Hey brother, you aren't actually allowed to talk about specific brands on the Forvm, it's against the rules we all signed. It's just fine if you accidentally did it and no one has brought it to your attention, but jut use a general product name, like protein powder, NO product, or creatine product. No problems, just don't want to see you get in any trouble.

As to your question, Pak and protein is a good standard base. At your age, Stak is a waste of time and money, your body naturally has more than enough testosterone. I would add in some aminos and creatine then go from there.

If not I was wondering what I should avoid consuming with those products if anything.

The reason that you should avoid anti-inflammatory medications as well as white willow (aspirin) is due to the fact that it neutralizes the effects of the arachidonic acid that is included in the Animal Test formula. The Animal Stak and Cuts formulas do not include arachidonic acid, so there is no problem with taking Carnitech.

Stak is a fine product that'll definitely help you gain strength and mass, you may also want to consider Realgains.

what nutrients are in each pill?

this would be helpful to alot of people, especially with the staples like pak, omega, flex, nitro. almost like a table of contents so if you need to avoid certain minerals and what not, you dont have to avoid the entire product.


btw i thought this was a suggestion box, not a standard QnA thread.

You definitely want to take it everyday for 3 weeks and then cycle off for one week. M-stak helps your body to better utilize the food you eat, and nutrition on non training days is just as important as nutrition on training days.

Everything looks good except I dont think taking Omega before morning cardio is a good idea, since it may interfere with fat-burning. And if you are taking Omega, then the CLA capsules may not be necessary since Omega has CLA in it. I would suggest taking Omega with the evening meal.

Thx for the input Angst, I was taking Omega at night but the faqs page suggested to take Flex at night and omega in the morning so I thought since I get up and do cardio early ( around 3 or 3:30 that I would take it then, the whole concept was since pretty much everything I read says not to take EFA's wit meals or with fiber ( so meaning meals ) since the fiber will prevent the absorption of said oils I wanted to take them on an empty stomach. What would you say to taking them after my Cardio session but an hour before Bk, or doing Flex at dinner and Omega before bed.
I am not sure how taking them a couple hrs before a hard training session would effect the absorption and performance of the Flex also, with the sweat and higher stress levels of the training or trained body.

Actually taking Omega with a meal will help with the absorption, you just don't want to take it with a high fiber meal, I think any meal under 10 grams of fiber would be fine.

If you are on Stak right now, I would suggest taking Test one or two weeks after Stak, and follow the instruction on the label of Test. I believe it says to run 2 cans of Test back to back, followed by a can of M-stak.

Cool Thx Angst appreciate it. I started today with Stak.

So then I'll switch Omega from before bed to dinner and Flex before bedtime, would that be effective, I really hope flex will improve my Shoulder ( its not dibilitating by it gets sore). I'll post starting pic's also tomorrow. I made good gains the last cycle of Stak, I'm hoping for even more gains this time.

That should work fine. I recently finished a can of Flex and my joints are feeling a lot better. I have shoulder pains from time to time too, and Flex definitely helps.

When i combined this with my hi calorie diet i started to notice some flab gathering around my mid section (never happened before and dont know how to handle it, i DONT LIKE IT!) when i spoke to my local suplement rep he recomended that i rather try a whey. When i am on m-stak can i swop my mass gainer with a whey protein and just consume my carbs from my whole food rather than my shakes? and just get down as much whey as possible? Will i still achieve great lean mass with every cycle? Waiting your speedy and pro help

Is it okay to take cut and m-stak at the same time?
I'm currently taking pak, cut, and m-stak.
I take cuts in the morning. Pak with breakfast.
But my schedule can't fit the time restraints of the 4 hours between each back, staggered.

So I was wondering if I can take out a stim from the cut or m-stak and just take them together?
If so, which stim should I take out? Are they the same?

Its totally fine to take Cuts and M-Stak at the same time, however, I want to throw my 2 cents in on this. M-Stak in my opinion is more of a bulking supplement. I've used it many times with great success and one thing I noticed is that it sends your appetite through the roof. Cuts on the other hand is pretty much cutting. You wouldn't want to reduce your diet if taking M-Stak because it kinda denies it from reaching its full potential. And for Cuts, if your cutting, a bulking diet probably wouldn't suit you.

But, its up to you, so I'll answer your questions. The red capsule in M-Stak is the stimulant. As for Cuts, its one of the brown capsules, not entirely sure which one though. Taking the stim out from M-Stak isn't a problem, especially for people who might not like the kick you usually get from it, or if they take other supps which add to the stim effect. The capsule in Cuts, I remember reading that the one with the caffeine has other ingredients in it which would end up you taking other stuff out along with the caffeine.

Hope this helps.

Sup, I want to take your supplements. I am in the coast guard, their supplement policy is the same as the ncaa. They do random drug tests often, and can target a "random" person for a different test for ingrediants that are banned by the ncaa.

My FAQ; what products can I use that will not get me into trouble with ncaa/coast guard tests?


I have been lifting for 5 months and gained 25 pounds just drinking muscle milk protien and cycling through one bottle of creatine. I am ready for the next step.

None of Universal or Animals products have any illegal substances. Your best bet would be to take the ingredient list of the supplement you are wanting to take and run it by someone that does the testing. The only supplements that might cause problems would be the test boosters.

i took a ncaa list of banned substances and compared it with pack, nitro and pump. It looks like i will be okay. The ncaa list is bullshit, they state that if a substance isnt on the list or is similiar to the ones on the list it could still be banned. I am not worried about substances being banned just their deal on drug tests. I get randomed every 4 months and they initialy don't test for everything. But if my command suspects anything they can fuck me with a supplement test.

Probably best way would be separate 15 min apart 30-45 before workout. The order is up to you, m-stak has the stim so that may affect the decision. Also I have heard that if you really felt you had to, suggest the 2nd best time for Stak would be at night closer to bed time. I did it this way when I used Test and had no problem.

Have you tried Animal Pump or Shock Therapy for pre-workout supps?

Is your diet in check? Food and the proper amounts (of food) will make the supplements work better.

The breakdown of each tablet and capsule is part of a proprietary blend. If there is a specific ingredient you wanted to take out, that MAY be a possibility. Email info@animalpak.com

I have an idea for a new FAQ.

I see a lot of people asking for clarification on the "empty stomach" recommendation on Nitro, Cuts, PM, etc. It seems that people are taking this to mean a literally empty stomach, as in not having eaten anything for several hours. My understanding was always that when the directions say to take on an empty stomach, it means not to eat for 30-45 minutes before/after taking. This is what I've normally seen advised, and I assumed this goes for any product with the "empty stomach" recommendation, but I could be mistaken.

Anyway, I think it might be helpful to have that clarified in a general FAQ. I know the info is covered in some of the individual FAQs in one way or another. If I'm wrong and the guidelines are actually different product to product, then maybe adding a new FAQ for said products specifically addressing this question.

Good Call. We've all had this question at some point or another...

I noticed that a lot of companies have produced new prohormones that are still legal like tren, epi, superdrol clones and whatnot..... now, I know it's against the FORVM rules to discuss PH's, but I was wondering if Universal or Animal will come up with a legal prohormone like they did with Stak and Test a while back..... just wondering....

Not likely and no real need if you ask me. Why risk a companies rep or put it on a radar just because you have a few rebel companies selling stuff that WILL get banned and maybe locked up/shut down for it? The new ANIMAL TEST/STAK is great and there are no worries.

Agreed with Juggs. The damage prohormones can do on one's HPTA axis is vastly underrated. Plus you will have 16-18 year old kids who want a quick fix to get huge running to the store to purchase these products. Just my opinion but prohormones are bad news and I hope Animal never goes that route - which I don't think they will.

I would like to ask wether nitro and uni-liver are comparable in them Amino Acids or which one is more sufficient?
(cant buy both of them, budget's too low). What would you suggest to buy?
I use Pak/Pump and whey protein.

Uni-Liver is essentially freeze-dried liver. Concentrated protein/aminos in a convenient form and in a greater dose per serving than one would get just from eating liver.

Nitro, on the other hand, is focused and isolated essential amino acids (EAA), including the proprietary human muscle protein complex, which is comprised of the amino acids that make up muscle tissue.

If I had to choose one, it would be Nitro all the way. Both are great, but with Nitro you are getting a very focused and concentrated dose of EAAs in a profile that is hard to find elsewhere, or replicate with food or supplemental protein sources. In my experience, Nitro is hands-down the most effective supplement I have ever taken. Period.

If you need to stretch the budget, you could take one packet of Nitro only after each training session. Assuming you train 4-5 days a week, this would give you anywhere from 8-11 weeks per can.

I bought Universal ripped fast 120 capsules and in the label you can read the dosage is 4 capsules 30 minutes before the workout, but some people say that 2 capsules before breakfast and 2 capsules 30 minutes before breakfast is even better.

What do you think is better? many thanks

I am going to buy Animal M stak and I would like to know If after the workout is better Universal ultra Whey Protein or Animal Nitro.

If I take Animal Mstak and NItro, is the protein shake necessary or with both mstak and Nitro is enough?
Thanks

Protein is essential after a workout, but if you are going to eat a meal with protein shortly after your workout the Whey can be skipped.

Actually, we'll just do it on here because im not sure if my PM has gone through and I want to resolve this for you. Where did you buy the product? In USA or outside of the USA? Is there any red capsules or brown tablets in any of the packs?

Hey buddy, I thought you were going to say it was outside the USA. The Pump you have is not fake from the description. That is EU version of Animal Pump. Those "white" looking capsules actually aren't white they are clear but ingredients inside are white so that it appears to be white. In many EU countries, yellow coloring is not allowed for capsules so instead of making a Pump for each country, we just generalized it into an EU version without the yellow capsules. If you still have further doubts, PM me the batch# and expiration date and I will have Quality Control verify it for you, but from what you are describing, you have the correct product

I'm taking a pre-workout, amino acids, and creatine right now for in the gym and when I throw. I was wondering what else I should add to my regiment? I have taken animal products in the past, but the local GNC's don't carry all of your products and I couldn't stay on a steady flow with ordering online. I want to start taking them again, I loved how they helped me in the gym and I can't wait to see what they do for me in my competitions.

Hey Brother,

I would suggest giving Stak or M Stak a try with the regimen you have going now. You have your major requirements covered from what you listed, something like these two could give you that extra push you've been looking for. Both products are run for a 3 week on/1 week off cycle and come packaged to suit that perfectly. Check out the Packs section on the site here and see which one might be a better fit for you.

Hey I am 43 but I'd like to live to be 60 and beyond if that helps. I asked a similar question when my wife was pregnant and we wanted to know if some of the products were okay. The answer I got was multi layered:

1. Nobody at Universal knows what you are personally allergic to so they advise you to label check so you don't take something that is safe for most of the population but might kill you.
2. If you participate in organized sports (whether it be high school or something federation based like powerlifting) your organization might not allow you to take something that is safe but considered "performance enhancing". For example, Jesse Norris, who is ridiculously strong any way received a temporary suspension from the IPF for taking a preworkout (not an Animal product) that was on their ever changing banned substance list. So you need to label check to make sure that you're not inadvertently violating something that will negate six months of training.
3. Although we should all have common sense, somebody out there doesn't and to protect the company from his lack of attention, Universal takes the step to warn you that some people shouldn't take test boosters (8 year old kids, pregnant or nursing mothers etc.)

FYI, what I was asking about was Animal Whey because we wanted to increase her daily caloric intake (she was already eating a healthy diet but needed more calories since she was pregnant) and we thought that Animal Whey or Animal Mass might be a better solution than the junk food that pregnant women often take. However, there's a warning label on Animal Mass and Whey. So I made the phone call and got the answers I listed above.

I hope that long answer helped out and I apologize for not speaking up before but I honestly just saw this.

Time for a CONTEST! Yeah that's right! A freakin' contest! Start giving something back to the loyal group of followers! Offer prizes in the form of product. Vouchers for 30% off stuff. I been buying your shit since the 70's Dont ever recall you guys doing anything like that. I'm a firm believer in supplements always have been. I spend anywhere from $150 to 200 a month on ANIMAL supplements. Time to return the favor!
