Re: solid supplements to take

IIRC, people that sweat a lot are deficient in zinc/mag.

Could be wrong though.

Can't believe people forgot to mention Vitamin D.

Re: solid supplements to take

Hello Kristian,
What are you on meds for if you do not mind me asking?

I would try switching to 80/90% vegetables and 20/10% of fruits if I were you.You are basivally consuming the bulk of your diet in sugar. I would try taking in mostly dark and grean leafy veggies like Kale, Spinach,Sprouts, along with non starchy Cauli,Pepper,Union,Mushroom, Sweet Potatoes.

Second this. Vit d has been a staple for me for years. It's involved in over 900 bodily reactions. It's also not a 'vitamin' per say and acts more like a hormone. I take 5000iu's every morning. Take em in the morning because vit d and melatonin are antagonists. Taking vit d in the morning will actually help your melatonin production at night and you'll sleep way better as well.

Yup.

I also take 5,000iu per day and have been for over 4 years now.

Or just winter for anyone. Fact is that people can claim all they want that they try to make a bigger effort to get outside but it simply isn't happening.

Taking Vitamin D is cheap and it works. Plus its safe. No reason not to take it.

Agreed Vitamin D is critical IMO and per my Dr's


I take:

Astaxanthin Inflammation/antioxident/sunblock
Original Nutritionals O3 fish oil inflammation/nootropic
Vit D 10k mgs low levels per bloodwork
DHEA 75 mgs low levels per bloodwork
MCT gel caps through out the day 5000mgs
Tumeric Tincture
Beta Alanine Pre-post training [HDXmix](love this stuff)
Zyflamend Inflammation/heart
ZMA Sleep
Silica/Horsetail Joints/connective tissue
Maca Wellness
Liquid Iodine Metabolism/thyroid
Phosphatdyl Serine Adrenals/Cognitive/Nootropic
Pro biotics

Diet is sound. I dont count blocks literally but have my sense of proportion. Eat zone style if I had a style. I dont fear carbs.

Im 42, 240 12bf%. All that stuff I take to support my recovery; I feel it I hurt more. Also Ive been hurt for 6 months so lot of power type lifting no gymnastics based stuff

Ive collected anecdotal info in testing the stuff against bloodwork in the last 3 years. I feel comfortable in saying there is benefit, nothing massive. But noted.

Interestingly. I ate double rounds of Bacon daily for a year & supplemented MCT fats for the same period, lowered my lipid panel, good and bad.

Ill say I dont notice any benefit performance wise except for the beta alanine.

I do notice it when I dont though I hurt way more.

If I crush myself I can be back in a day, without its like 1 1/2 or 2.

I get crap for not being Paleo. Dont care. Im broken ex pro athlete. This stuff lets me still charge but good without mainlining ibuprofen and worse



Next Im looking to add Choline but to see if it helps with cognitive stuff.
