PAGG Stack Dosage

PAGG Stack DosageIf you buy ready made PAGG Stack you need to take a pill four times a day. Most manufacturers sell the stack in two bottles, because policosanol (the P in PAGG) is only taken once a day. The smaller bottle contains pills to be taken before sleep, the bigger one – to be taken with meals. 

If you mix your own PAGG stack, or you buy a supplement bundle, you need to take the PAGG supplements four times a day. First three “day time” servings should contain alpha lipoic acid, green tea extract and garlic extract. The last “bed time” serving should contain policosanol, alpha lipoic acid and garlic extract.

The dosage for each component looks like this:

  • P – Policosanol, 23mg
  • A – Alpha Lipoic Acid, 100-300mg (ALA), or 50-150mg (R-ALA)
  • G – Green Tea Extract (EGCG), 325mg
  • G – Garlic Extract, 200mg – Aged Garlic Extract rich in Allicin

When taking PAGG, Vitamin B should be taken as an addition.

What is simplified PAGG dosage?

PAGG is not a brand, but a formula. Depending on the manufacturer the contents of the packaging may differ. Some manufacturers offer simplified PAGG, meaning that there is only one pill per serving,  containing all four components described in “4 Hour Body”.

A simplified PAGG Stack comes in two bottles with “day” and “bed time” pills.  The day time pills are intended to be taken before meals, the bed time pills – when you go to sleep.

The day time pills contain:

  • 150 mg of R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA), more effective than 300mg of S-ALA
  • 200 mg of Aged Garlic Extract (AGE)
  • 325 mg of EGCG, from decaffeinated green tea extract
  • 100 mcg of Biotin, a B complex vitamin

The bed time pills  contain:

  • 23 mg of Policosanol derived from olive leaves
  • 150 mg of R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA), more effective than 300mg of S-ALA
  • 200 mg of Aged Garlic Extract (AGE)
  • 100 mcg of Biotin, a B complex vitamin

What is PAGG 2.0?

Originally there was also green tea extract in the “bed time” serving, however some users complained about insomnia. The updated PAGG formula also called PAGG 2.0 doesn’t contain EGCG (green tea extract) in the bed time serving.

PAGG and heartburn

PAGG is a side effect free substitute for the famed ECA stack, made of Ephedrine Hydrochloride, Caffeine and Aspirin. The ECA stack was bringing results but it had some undesired side effects, as Tim Ferriss describes from his own experience (pages 115-116 of the book). PAGG on the other hand, might cause only a slight heartburn from ALA, which you can easily get rid of, by drinking more water.
