: Yes, DCA is dichloroacetate and the only place you can get it is to make it from dichloroacetic acid. You don't need very much to make or take. You take it orally and the dosage is 5mg/kg. You can buy DCA from a lab supply store, but they will have to order it. If you get it I'll tell you how to make it. It's easy. I've got some here but I don't want this to sound like I'm trying to sell this stuff as I really don't think there is a big market for it and it gives you headache, like I said before. Maybe if you pay for shipping I'll just send you some if you pay for the shipping. I made a shitload last year and didn't use much.
: I use metformin when I'm lifting and when I want to cut the fat from the long winter, If you stay cut pretty much the year round then I wouldn't piss with it.
: DCA and pyruvate work by the same mechanism. The DCA enhances pyruvate oxidation which keeps the cells from producing lactate and therefore lactic acid! Pyruvate makes the cell use the excess pyruvate in the same cycle and also spares lactic acid production, so the theory goes. The question with pyruvate is whether or not that cycle can be favored by taking pyruvate. Cycling steve seems to be evidence that it does, though. He's also a master (sorry old man) and what works for the old folks might not work for everybody else! HAHA Wonder what DCA and pyruvate together would do. HEY, CYCLING STEVE! I've got another 'experiment' for you!
: Hope that helps and Anarchy in the USA!
