Product Overview

ARACHIDONIC ACID

MUSCLE SIZE*, STRENGTH*, AND POWER*

X-FACTOR™ ADVANCED

Is a second-generation arachidonic acid (ARA) supplement. An Omega-6 fatty acid, ARA supports gains in muscle size, strength, and power, as well as muscle preservation during fat loss.* Studies suggest this fatty acid is essential for muscle protein synthesis following exercise.* Furthermore, regular exercise may lower ARA levels in the muscles. This makes ARA one of the most important supplements for bodybuilders and athletes. X-FACTOR ADVANCED takes ARA to the next level, with a formula designed to support the overall effect of this anabolic fatty acid.*

ARA PUT TO THE TEST

The effectiveness of X-FACTOR™ has been demonstrated in placebo-controlled trials at the University of Tampa. Thirty weight-training male subjects (age 20.4 ± 2.1 years) with a minimum of 1 year of resistance training experience were given six capsules of X-Factor per day (1,500mg ARA) or placebo for eight weeks. Subjects taking X-Factor noticed significantly greater improvements on all muscle size and performance variables tested, including an 88% greater increase in muscle size (thickness) measures. They also added an average of 21 lbs. to their bench press, 89 lbs. on leg press, gained about 4 lbs. of lean body mass (LBM), and noticed a 5.5 times greater increase in muscle power compared to placebo!*

XFA — Increased Potency

X-Factor™ Advanced is designed to further support the anabolic effects of arachidonic acid. The first objective was to increase the cellular uptake and membrane stability of this fatty acid, so more is available for post-training anabolism. Second, ARA must be metabolized to active bio-chemicals before it can trigger growth. Reducing its metabolism by other enzymes allows more ARA to be utilized by the primary anabolic pathway.* By focusing on both methods of ARA intensification, X-Factor Advanced represents the very pinnacle of ARA supplementation!

X-Factor™ or X-Factor™ Advanced?

X-Factor™ Advanced is generally recommended as the more effective and versatile ARA supplement. However, if you have a history of taking daily fish oil supplements in moderate to high doses, you may want to try original X-Factor first. Evidence suggests that at low levels, fish oil can potentiate the effects of ARA; at high levels it may reduce its effect. Omega-3’s have been added to XFA to increase ARA potency, but might be unnecessary if your tissue levels are already high.*

Love this product. It works great on either a bulk or a cut. Muscles stay constantly full, strength explodes on a bulk, and maintains or even goes up some on a cut. After 50 days of this stuff you can definitely expect some very good body composition improvements too. 10/10 product for sure.

I have tried a lot of different supplements and this is by far, the best overall supplement. It gives you amazing results while staying all natural. I would recommend this to ANYONE and I will be using this again. Ps. Expect soreness. And a lot of it.

If you are like me and have the body type where nothing seems to work, then do NOT waste your money on this product. I have used everything on the market besides steriods. Nothing works beyond protein and creatine. I saw NO GAINS from this product, it was a HUGE waste of $120.

XFA is a good product. It takes a couple of weeks to start working, but once it does, your strength will start to increase. This is my 2nd time running XFA and I have made gains each time. My body fat decreased and my strength and definition increases.

PRICE-6/10 It's reasonable considering how good this stuff is but it's still a little too pricey for it to fit most peoples budget. Taste-0/10 Taste is usually an N/A when it's a encapsulated supplement but this stuff smells horrendous. As soon as you open the bottle it hits you, taking 6 caps pre-workout hits you even worse. Effectiveness-10/10 The DOMS are insane, the pumps are skin splitting and the gains in both strength and muscle growth are amazing. Overall it was a good run. I would definitely recommend the advanced version over the original, even with the smell.
