Simple math (using 2 or more purchases)
$8.80 for what you are using above.
$6.50 for two servings of plazma.
Add a FINiBAR before Plazma and you are still paying less.
And you will be like the rest of us, Holy Crap this stuff is good.
I did the same as you (and similar) and now on Plazma. The cost is justified and I have the recoup power to prove it. I can go biking with my wife no problem after leg leg. Or any day for that matter.
I do the Plazma/MAG-10/FINiBAR. Work out four days a week with two conditioning days. I only take one plazma on shoulder days (due to nagging injuries that is rehabing right now).
And as noted above, look for the deals. I’m in Canada and also on a budget. With Duty, shipping charges and exchange, it is still worth it.
