I'm supplementmaxxing - if it's legal and there are multiple studies suggesting it's effective at all in increasing recovery/athletic performance - I will take it regardless of cost. anything to add to my upper-level-suggested daily intake of the below?
all standard vitamins/minerals
max out your outside of gym variables (sleep, diet (including micronutrients), hydration (including electrolytes), NEAT, stress, etc) before doing this, otherwise there's no point lol
get the low-hanging fruit first
yeah I try to - any suggestions on that front welcome as well.
meal prep with decent macros, but take the vegetable/fruit supplements cus I'm low on those
sleep 8hrs - in bed for 9
stretch/mobility routine in am, longer stretch/foam roll in evening
meditate/journal to try to reduce stress
reading/music as primary hobbies
make sure I'm hydrated
daily cardio along with the PPL routine I run
they're called SUPPLEMENTS for a reason
first you fix the actual main points of a healthy lifestyle, then you can SUPPLEMENT it later
they aren't the be all and end all, they're just extra gains, the big main gains comes without using anything at all
OH GOD I'M GONNA- I'M GONNA SOOPLEMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENT
No idea if this has performance based side effects (probably not), but it's made my anxiety disappear completely.
Bcaas are a scam. It is not 2016 anymore
You also forgot curcumine
curcumin seems to primarily have anti-inflammatory benefits, but it's cheap as hell so why not - will get some, thanks
Do you ever test to see if those powders are what they say they are? The FDA doesn't make sure they're not liars, you know.
the only thing I take in this stack that isn't from what I would call a 'large reputable brand' is tongkat ali, as in canada it's restricted/required to be included in blends. so, I order it from the states from a smaller supplement company that seems legit - I'm not taking that shit sold on amazon from india/the phillipines.
everything else is from jamieson vitamins, nature's bounty, or allmax - which I trust. if you take any whey protein at all, you are taking the same trust in a similar company. it's crazy to me that supplement purity isn't more regulated.
>it's crazy to me that supplement purity isn't more regulated
Couldn't agree more.
Inflammation is part of the reason for lifting why the fuck would you take an anti inflammatory
cum stack + vitamins & fish oil
just fucking cycle 500 test c
I forgot to add, I'm trans. Not sure if that matters.
as if it would be any better to suck on some hot plastics and drink exclusively ꜱoy milk
I would if I had a medicinal source in canada. I talked to my doctor, sleep deprived myself/ate like shit for a while before the test, test results came back ~450ish - no luck on a script.
i got some caffeine and fish oil pills coming in the mail
Be careful, a lot of fish oil is of low quality and rancid. A study came out there recently that showed a certain percentage contained carcinogens. Then again, everything in today's society has something in it that will kill or mame you in some way ffs.
Very nice list OP. Seeing the aminos you mentioned without glycine and l-theanine is mindboggling to me, both are absolute fucking game changers. Drop 5g of glycine powder in chamomile tea before sleep and you'll wake up the most rested you've ever been in your entire life, not to mention heroic dose mushroom trip level dreams.
L-Theanine, 200mg with black coffee in the morning, enjoy laser sharp focus and calmness.
They have other benefits, of course, but the above mentioned immediate effects are very noticeable. Try them, you won't regret it
thank you for the recommendations - these both look great - adding to the stack.
>turmeric + curcumin
>raw egg yolks, around 12 a day
>raw cane sugar (only if you’re very active, manual labor and gym)
>liver, preferably grass fed (currently working through some venison liver from this season)
>GABA for anxiolytic effects
>glycine for sleep
>hydration salt blend (snake juice essentially)
>red meat exclusively (no chicken or pork)
>whole fat grass fed milk
>white button mushrooms
>blueberries and green tea w/ honey
Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food
Oh and coconut oil
Tell me more about this boron.
I take a standard multivitamin, creatine, and fish oil everyday. Am I missing out by not taking boron?
helps the body with utilization of vitamins and minerals - namely absorption of magnesium and vitamin d. also plays a part in bone health.
your standard mutlivitamin probably contains enough, but I take more alongside a high dose of magnsium and vitamin d.
I've gained 2 inches in dick size since starting maca root 8 months ago. At this rate I'll have a full 6 inches by the end of the year.
Lads, I had a pre workout to day and honestly felt so fucking good mentally afterwards. I've had it with a few other pre workouts in the past. What ingredient could it possibly be?
Beta alanine and citrulline
I've been taking k2 mk7 alongside my d3 supps, and i just fucking found out most of it is taken from onions. How tf do i make sure the k2 mk7 is not onions? And is there any point taking mk4 k2?
I'm on TRT and HGH and that's it because everything else is a waste of money.
Is Spirulina a meme? I don't like the greens drinks cus they're too sweet so these come in tablet form too.
Ralph Smart swears by it. Breathing in that good ass Prana baby!
Can I get a HELLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOO THERE
it's a complete protein iirc
take chlorella too for detoxing heavy metals
>workouts, sleep, diet, hydration dialed in
>recovered by the next day
>test at 1100 ng/dL
>linear progression past 150 kg pause bench and 90 kg pause OHP
>suddenly too much energy and can't fall asleep
>completely sore for the next week and test gets halved
Sleep max, it's me most you can do.
how does one acquire these test levels
Genetics mostly. Outside of that the two things that kill my test are lack of sleep and caloric deficit. I had 650 ng/dL when I was consistently sleeping 6 h per day.
i've been taking NAC like >3 grams a day for 6 months to "keep my mind calmer and have less cravings for food and drugs". i wonder if this is bad for you
OP can you reply to this with an updated list of supps you're taking, the benefits they have, and the amounts per day?
>10k iu vitamin D
>5k mg vitamin c
>Sunflower lecthin 2400mg
>Maca/fenugreek not sure what dosage cause its a blend
>Biotin 10k mcg
Coupled this with exercise 6 times a week, nofap, and eating mostly meat and veg. My balls feel heavy, im horny af, angry af, and the low carbs makes me feel light on my feet.
Just eat fatty fish
Just eat fermented foods
Just eat raisins, nuts, cruciferous veg and pit fruits
Just eat dark leafy greens
Just eat a variety of fruits
I thought you said you only took things with scientific backing? Does nothing if you're not protein-deprived or cutting below 8%bf
Again, no scientific backing. Will do nothing if you're on a high protein diet.
Ineffective and turns into harmful TMAO when taken orally. Not worth it if you're not pinning
I take this occasionally preworkout, but a lot of times it gives me Doms and I'm unsure whether it's actually worth the gains
I take this daily
I take this occasionally, it makes me last twice as long in bed
I take this occasionally as it's good for focus
I soak, toast, and grind fenugreek seeds myself to use in Hispanice blends. Toss a pinch on sardines, eggs, whatever. Don't feel the need to supplement.
Overall 5/10 OP, most of this would be unnecessary if you paid more attention to your diet.
The soil is depleted due to stupid corporate farming practices and I feel like I'm starving when I try to get my vitamins through food.
>Again, no scientific backing. Will do nothing if you're on a high protein diet.
Fuck you ANTI-supplement shill. Glutamine saved my stomach.
>Ineffective and turns into harmful TMAO when taken orally. Not worth it if you're not pinning
So does eggs and lecithin and avocado and fucking everything else doesn't it?
>Berry fruit supplement
Black are you fucking stupid? That's basic bitch shit you'll get eating well.
Here's what you want:
>5g DHA/1g EPA
>1 g quercetin a day
>500 mg rutin
>500 mg hesperidin
>20,000 iu vitamin D
>1000 mg magnesium lycinate glycinate
>5g red yeast rice
I take a multi-vitamin
And Dexamphetamine currently, with added protein shakes and I force feed myself protein bars, and have a huge breakfast this is due to the speed, synephrine, and literal fuckloads of coffee blunting my apetite like crazy. Going p gud, lost 10 kilos, and not too much of it muscle and I'm getting a lot fucking stronger as well. Problem is my sex drive. I am horny 24/7 and my GF is currently going through some shit, depression and probably a hormone imbalance so we haven't fucked in two whole months. I consider myself an extremely loyal guy, but I am this close to cheating (I have ample opportunities tbqh) is this a test from above? I don't want to be unfaithful it's one of them the worst things you can do.
Anything that might give me an edge might give me an edge, but something take makes me super fucking human for hours is something that makes me super human for hours. I love drugs ngl.
My heart is doing weird shit from taking preworkout, as much as I'd like to take a rec drug It'd probably give me an embarassing in front of everybody at the gym heart attack
I hate pre-made preworkout. I remember a preworkout I got online who made me feel like I was on fucking speed. One cup of coffee is enough for me + the supplements OP is talking about
>but something take makes me super fucking human for hours is something that makes me super human for hours
Nicely coherent sentence you wrote there, druggie
I'm phone posting you nog.
Dmha for cutting.
Other than recommending the usual (vitamins, macros, and a good preworkout) like everyone else in this thread, I'd also recommended that you give coconut milk a try OP. Yes, it's very high in saturated fat, but it also has 125% of your daily vitamin b12. I have been making my shakes out of coconut milk and it is just such an incredible recovery tool. I've been training for a year straight by now, and the gains I've seen in that time have been fucking insane because I have zero recovery. I also eat a banana every single day and, let me tell you, your body NEEDS the potassium for recovery. Ideally you'd be able to average one and a half bananas every day-- but, because of that oddly-specific amount, I'd instead recommend eating one every day, and two every other day, with the latter being blended into a meal shake of some sort.

Why would you just lie like that?
you should supplement your dopamine and opioid receptors by smoking heroin
