Georgeopc   Age: 28

"... Hello ....
You told me I should take tribulus with zma so I have "on" products tribulus says 1 or 2 on a meal and zma says 3 after sleep ...
How do you think I should take them ???
With food or not ???
Just before sleep or in evening with food ???
Or should I take them separate as they say on box ???
Thank you so much for answering my question right away u have helped me alot !!!"


February 16, 2013
response by James

Not sure who you are referring to? This is a public forum.

If you are asking about zma and tribulus, both are used at night time only for best results - every night. It doesn't matter if it is with food, but you should really be eating right before you go to bed unless it's a protein shake or cottage cheese.

Good luck.

"... Hi again ... What would u prefer for fat burning l-carnitine or cla and why worh ur opinion ... Please help cause I don't wanna get real fat burners ???"

response by Vlado

Real fat burners are MADE UP of ingredients such as that, so there is no difference understand? Using both of the ingredients you mentioned work well for fat loss.

"... Hello thanks alot for answer and I will like to ask one more question : so I have in the morning a pill of tribulus, multi pro (scitec) multivitamins and nitrotech in the morning... Then 30 minutes before training jac3d micro.... 15 minutes also before training 6 pills of prototype 216 ... Right away when I finish gym I have hydro builder platinum (on) after 3 hour I have a meal with 1 more pill of tribulus and after 3 hours before I go to bed I take a shake of casein complex (scitec) is it all ok or is it not right ??? "


February 5, 2013
response by Phil

Tribulus should be taken in the evening with ZMA for best results. Multi-vitamin and nitro-tech in the morning is OK. The pre-training stack is also good as well as the post workout and meals. Everything seems OK. Remember, you need to eat 4-6 meals per day (a meal can be a shake). Stick with high protein, medium carbs and low fat foods.

No, it's actually a good stack and you'll see some good gains from this combination.

"... I wanted to know if I could stack this with my whey+casein protein and BCAA Leucine Loaded ? and how many pills should I take of 216 the first day I work out..I don't want to take 4pills and then realize my body can't handle it. what u guys think?"


August 14, 2012
response by George

Yes, that is a perfect combination. In fact, you should always be taking those other supplements regardless.

You can start with 2 pills for 5 days then move up to the suggested dose of 4 pills per day.

Yes, it will. I would also suggest using Scivation XTEND for during training and using 5-10 grams of glutamine pre and post workout and before bed.

I've been taking those three mentioned supplements for a couple months and seen descent results. I'm currently benching a 395 max and i was wondering if this prototype 216 would help me reach the 400s if i stack it with the three supplements I am currently using?"

Yes, all the other supplements you listed are a great stack and will help you tremendously. You have everything in order and will see great results.

"... Can i use this product with a superpumpmax? the nutritionist told me to take 2pills 30 mins prior to my superpump and another 30 mins to start pumping. Wont the period of 45 mins since the '15 min before workout' be wasted? and is it really ok to just take 2 pills and not the recommended dosage?"


September 27, 2011
response by kRameR

I don't think it's wise to use TWO pre-workout supplements, why would you want to do that? Take one at a time, each product you mention are very potent and will give you the results you need. Stick with one, test them out properly and find out which work best - then stick with that one.

steven jackson   Age: 23

"... I am considering taking this suppliment because I want to get bigger and stronger muscles...I take protein and i dont notice any serious only concern with taking prototype 216 is does it have any harmful ingredients like creatine or metals? will it cause harmful side effects down the line such as liver, kidney or heart damage or even mental problems? these are my concerns before taking this. I want to get bigger but i dont want to sacrifice my health to do so."


August 15, 2011
response by Cameron

Hi Steven. Good questions. When you supplement with protein you will never see instant results, it is slow and gradual but the gain you do make you will keep. Adding an advanced amino acid supplement such as this one to the mix will also help with your gains. Creatine is not a harmful ingredient.

From my knowledge and experience with this product it is not steroidal or prohoromone based so there are no dangerous side-effects to worry about. If you are still concerned take the box with the ingredient label to your physician for them to confirm any doubts.

Best of luck and keep us posted on your progress.

"... Read awesome things about this Amnio complext and am going to give it a try. The issue is that I'm not training hardcore, 1hr a day, 5 days a week. Overall goal is fat reduction, fitness and general hardness. I read that Aminos can help with these goals.

My question is "Do I need the full dose if I'm not training like a body builder or would it be appropriate to split the dose and measure the results?"

Cheers Goz"


August 13, 2011
response by Rockster

I would stick with the full dose when using alpha aminos, since that is the optimal rate that the product was designed to work at it's absolute best. Train how you can and always put it 100% effort. Best of luck!

August 28, 2011

No, you can't gain fat on muscle. This is a lean muscle building supplement. Now, the only way you will gain fat is with your diet. So if you eat healthy you have nothing to worry about, the decision is all up to you.

Carlos   Age: 20

"... Im planing to buy prototype 216 and nitrotech, the only problem is that protein nitro tech have 11gr of leucine and other 13gr of other BCAA, and the prototype216 has 7gr of aminoacids (the daily dosis).. so my question is, how much aminoacids is good or recommended daily?, is their any problem taking those 2 supplements?... really i don't know if i should buy it."


March 15, 2011
response by The Enforcer

There is no problem taking both, the amount of aminos and other nutrients will not go to waste. Whatever your body does not need, you will simply urinate out - there is no danger. Besides, your body can easily handle the amount of grams of aminos you have listed.. especially if you are training hard and looking to improve you recovery and new growth. Share you review on both in a little while to let us know about your progress!

It makes no difference what you take it with, it's just pills. You can wash it down with water or any other drink you want. It works regardless of what drink you have with it.

"... I'm 18 and I've been using this supplement for a week now stacked with whey protein and creatine. I'm up two pounds in weight and have put on 20 pounds on the bench press and ten pounds in each hand for curls. I get great energy for my workout and minimal soreness after or the next day. So far I haven't noticed any negative side effects. My only suggestions are to drink a lot of water on a daily basis because this stuff dehydrates you and not to take the full recommended dose if you aren't over 200 pounds. The first time I took it I took the recommended amount and was up all night. I weigh 158 pounds and I take 4 pills instead of 6 and my results have been good."

April 16, 2010
response by Bowman

Hey man I just turned 17 and I play football and have been using supplements since I was 15(Protien since I was 13 or 14) but yeah alot of what people say about creatine or supplements not being good when you are young is not true as far as I can tell. The main thing you need to be careful with is lifting form and not damaging your joints or growth plates, I actually havn't taken prototype 216 yet but i've takn just about everyother muscle tech supp out there(Cell-tech,vitakic,mass-tech,nano-vapor,leukic,gakic,nitro-tech) and I have not any serious side effects but once you stop using them they tipically go away at least a little bit. But it should be fine.

January 17, 2010
response by Michael Taylor

That's the question I want to know the answer to! I guess the safest way to know for sure is just to take it daily.


March 8, 2010
response by Drew

All supplements say "take daily" and they one say that so you use your bottle and have to spend more money to buy a new one. I only take my supplements on lifting days! don't waste your money just use it when your lifting.

Wow.. just starting and adding all these advanced supplements to start? Not a good idea, start off slow and go from there. I would suggest to use the Prototype 216 and add a good protein to the mix. Few months later add the pre-workout supplement and maybe a year later a testosterone building supplement. Best of luck!

"... Alpha amino prototype 216, is one of the most effective supplements i have taken yet. My bench has shot from 165 to 205 in a month, coupled with traditional whey protein it has worked wonders. Oh and lets not forget i have gained 9 pounds of solid muscle, i kid you not, the surge of power i feel after taking this supplement and hitting the gym is amazing. Overall i have gained muscle endurance AND exsplosive strength, with an emphasis on the exsplosive strength. The only side effect is a mild heart palpitation, however I know this is the body growing accustomed to the arginine. Now be prepared because this product will take you to an entirely new level with your training, you CANNOT not train as hard as you can with this formula. This means be prepared to crash harder normally than you would after your training. I have been on prototype 216 for about 6 weeks now and plan on using it until an even more effective product comes to light."

Muscletech - Alpha Amino PROTOTYPE 216!

Muscletech Super-Amino Prototype 216 has Shown Increased Muscle Growth of 216%

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are the foundation for all new muscle growth. Without amino acids you will not grow - period! Using this inspiration, Team MuscleTech researchers bring you the future in super-amino acid muscle-building technology. Alpha Amino Prototype 216 is engineered with a lab-proven dosage of amino acids in the precise amounts designed to increase free intracellular amino acid levels in direct proportion to their physiological requirements for rapid protein synthesis. In a breakthrough clinical study conducted at the Medical Branch of the University of Texas, the amino acid complex found in Alpha Amino Prototype 216 caused a shocking 216% increase in muscle uptake in what clinical research indicates is a key marker of protein synthesis (phenylalanine), which of course is muscle growth occurring at the cellular level. The researchers employed a very precise method of testing done by drawing and analyzing blood from human subjects 60 and 120 minutes following intense exercise - the results showed accelerated muscle growth was occurring at the cellular level even two hours after training.

In the same University of Texas study, researchers discovered that test subjects who consumed a key complex in the Alpha Amino Prototype 216 formula immediately before intense training increased blood amino acid delivery by an astounding 650% directly to muscles! Increased amino acid delivery to hardworking muscles combined with ongoing training is critical to achieving rapid and permanent muscle growth. The amino acids found in Alpha Amino Prototype 216, in concert with nano-particulated aminos, essential aminos, conditionally essential aminos and precision ratio branched chain aminos, have resulted in what is unquestionably the most advanced super-amino muscle growth accelerant ever formulated.
