        the protein in raw egg is not as bioavailable as if you cook it.

          Yes, according to Dr. Saul Schlomoshekelberg, raw egg White contains protease inhibitors that limit the protein uptake of raw eggs.

          However according to God ( I asked him ) the human body get’s around these protease inhibitors by having the most acidic stomach acid of any mammal.

          Also according to basic logic, do the opposite of what garden gnomes say.

          Oh yeah, here’s a study by Dr. Takahashi saying the exact opposite. Raw egg Whites actually have higher absorption.

          There is no reason not to supplement with vitamin d and magnesium. Your body needs magnesium to process the vitamin d you get.

          There is no reason not to supplement with vitamin d and magnesium. Your body needs magnesium to process the vitamin d you get.

          is not me. I do not supplement vitamin D. I live in Australia and am able to get plenty of vitamin D from the sun.
          I take magnesium purely because of two (shit) reasons:
          1. It's quite often on sale at the shops for cheap.
          2. A certain instagram page I follow once went on a schizo rant about how modern agriculture has reduced magnesium levels in soil and therefore there is all-time low levels of magnesium in foods. I don't know if this is true, but reading it once was enough to convince me to start doing it. And honestly, I just haven't stopped. Magnesium doesn't cost me much and I don't really notice anything, so I have no reason to stop.
          Google tells me that food in fact will provide enough magnesium if you eat the right stuff. So perhaps that instagram page's schizo rant was simply a schizo making shit up, I don't know. So to be honest, it's probably unnecessary to supplement magnesium.
          I didn't include this in the list, but last week I also bought a container of zinc tablets, purely because it was half price. Sometimes I like to go through the supplement section and just pick something up for half-price just for fun.

            there was an article even on BBC that modern agriculture sucks. It was something like "how our food lost it nutrients" and they have mentioned that it has significantly less magnesium and zinc( brits have been measuring amount of nutrients in food for half a century and in that time it lost at least 20% of vitamins)
            be careful with zinc, as you need to take copper with it as well. Otherwise you will develop copper deficiency and that can be a nightmare.

    I took for one year then stoped. No chances since them.
    I take half a cialis pill 30 mim before working out.
    With this I can add 3 to 4 reps every set and recover waaaaaay faster between sets. Bad side is that you get very red, lips turn blood red, eyes too and you hearth and breathing rate will rise very high
    3 hours later you are fine.
    The increase blood flow is very confy if you take a walk after the workout, hard to explain why.
    Also focus on music or other personal thoughts, dont look at woman or you dick will get hard and will be a very sad experience

    I got covid recently and my stomach has never been the same. One of the first symptoms I had was that it felt like my colon was on fire. I then shit out this horrible mucusy monstrosity of a shit. 2 months later and I still struggle to take a solid shit. sometimes I am constipated other times I have to run to the bathroom and shit out a musky metallic smelling stream of liquid. Are there any supplements that I can take? I have tried probiotics and so far no luck.

      Nvm just saw that it has been 2 months. COVID has some weird effects, for example changing the way the body metabolizes iron. Stop eating any iron fortified foods. And see a doctor. You probably have an infection, could be bacterial or parasitic.

      Don't forget vitamin K2 and potentially magnesium if you're supplementing D3. Vitamin K prevents calcification of blood vessels from increased blood calcium from Vitamin D, and mag is a catalyst the body uses to turn D into it's usable form in the body.

          Collect the egg shells over time from breakfasts, smash them up a little bit, and pop them in the oven at 200F (95C) for about an hour. When they're cooled off, I throw them in my manual coffee grinder on the finest setting. The reason for the baking is because while raw egg is perfectly fine, the shell membrane gets exposed to and can grow bacteria once exposed to air. It's to ensure safety for longer term storage

            Is there any benefits of taking these (or any vitamins and shit) if i have a diverse diet?

            I do what

            Yes and no.
            No in that if you track your diet down to the micros, you can easily hit sufficient levels of those nutrients.
            However it becomes yes depending on forms of those micros alongside non-required micros. For example, you can theoretically get enough iron in your diet by eating spinach, but that won't have the more bioavailable form of iron compared to eating beef (heme iron). The equivalent milligram content may be there, but the iron bound to cell walls of spinach won't be fully absorbed by the intestines, so you're likely getting less than what is being tracked for.
            The other side is non-essential micronutrients that usually comes from various niche plants and mushrooms. Maca for example has macamides and macaenes (long chain fatty acids and derivatives) that could support secondary metabolites. It's not an essential nutrient by any means, but it could be an optimizing one.
            That said, do some research on whatever is being shilled to ensure that you're not going to be poisoning yourself or that you're not just throwing money out the window.

            said and track nutrients. I supplement to fill in the gaps in my diet. If I get enough of something one day I will skip the pill for it (usually the B vitamins). The only way to know what you need is to track that and figure out where you're deficient. I had blood work done fairly recently as well and that's a good way to see where you might have problems.

Further, your body's functions aren't limited to fucking lifting weights, which is the point I made that prompted your spastic response.

                Subjective experience is how one recognizes their health. Your objective numbers can justify specific conditions and warrant treatment, but the experience is what makes you seek out treatment. And even then, the subjective experiences can be tracked. There is no objective measurement of erection quality, but give viagra to a teenager with a hair trigger for hard ons and see what he'll say about it.

      I mean no way of knowing what you mean by a diverse diet. Short answer is yes there is benefits to taking some supplements even if you are getting "enough" of it. Unless you're eating seaweed and all kinds of shit all the time your diet isn't diverse enough and even then there is stuff you are just unable to get through your diet.

    Almost all supps are garbage
    You should only supp
    Zinc, lecithin, vit D, and a vasodilator

    If you feel stressed you can add rhodiola and or panax ginseng to the mix when you feel a cortisol spike.

    Beyond that fenugreek is the only supp shown to increase test without extra steps

    The only other notable thing I've seen ITT is turmeric
    If you have cancer in your family, you should eat Hispanicy food and supp turmeric to give yourself an edge on removing dead cells
