    I'm due for bloodwork anyways. I guess I'll try it for a week and see if my levels shoot up.

    I'm fairly new to this site, but one common theme I'm beginning to notice is that all of your threads are must reads. Thank you for taking the time to post this stuff for the people smart enough to take the time to read it.
    I've only been on here a few weeks and already I've gone back to some of your threads again and again.

    Hi austinite,

    It's only been about a year since I joined this site; and I am now purchasing your recommended supplements, lol. With the conflicting studies I have encountered about vitamins, minerals, and supplements in general, I decided to give this whole stack a try for 2-3 months. If I notice great improvement, then I will continue the regimen. I will be sure to take before and after pictures and post them if it is a success.

    I looked back on this thread and read the posts about magnesium that I asked a long time ago. I am currently about to purchase magnesium orotate. Now you recommend 400 mg of magnesium, but I assume that isn't elemental magnesium right? One of the capsules from the brand I plan to get contains 654 mg of magnesium orotate which consists of about 40 mg of elemental magnesium. I don't think I should be taking 10 of these a day, right? I attached a screenshot of the ingredients. From what I have found in other brands of magnesium and magnesium compounds (e.g. magnesium oxide), they don't actually list the amount of elemental magnesium. Anyway, I'd appreciate your input. Thanks.

    Def. don't take 10 a day. One is fine. Orotate is in fact one of the better forms (if not the best), I might switch from Citrate myself soon, still researching). But elemental is "usable", which is fairly even across the board. (probably except orotate). The mg content is in reference to total weight for said form, and elemental is a usable percentage of that weight.

    Hey Austinite is it necessary for one to inject Vitamin B12? Or can you benefit from the pill form? Also is there anything else Vitamin or whatever that you inject sub q that's better off being injected? Thanks!!

    No, not nccessary. If you do not want to inject, I recommend sub-lingual drops/tablets in methylcobalamin form. 3000 to 5000 mcg daily.

    Everything is better in injectable form.

    Not sure brother. Mine comes from my local pharmacy with a prescription. Google it. If the price is too good to be true, it's probably Cyanocobalamin labeled as Methyl.

    Okay Thanks i will Google. I work at a hospital so i think ill ask a Nurse Practitioner and see if they would be willing to write a prescription. I mean it's just B12 so don't see a problem in doing that. Thanks for your advice Aus!!

    Yeah, from what I have read, orotate is the best and most absorbable form which is why I chose it. Thanks for the input like usual. Hope all is well. Talk to you later.

    Please rephrase. I don't understand what you said. What specific question do you have?

    For sleep I use Magnesium, and if I still can't sleep I add Melatonin.

    No not really. There have been some studies but nothing concrete.

    I officially started this regimen and austinite's fat loss regimen today. I have so many bottles of supplements that I look like a damn drug store, lol. Just to give other members an idea, the total list (including the fat loss regimen) cost me about $600 for about two months worth of supplements (some will last a lot longer). While I'm sure it's possible to bring that down a little, I did a pretty comprehensive search to find the best deals while not sacrificing quality. That price includes tax, shipping, and injectable methylcobalamin. Anyway, you can be sure I will update my progress austinite. I'm pretty excited to see how it all works out.

    Well I already have a few questions. For the tadalafil, I am using AR-R 's product with the oral syringe. I am taking 0.1 mL pre-workout and 0.1 mL 12 hours later. When I suck it up, am I supposed to go until the tip of the plunger is at 0.1 mL or until the liquid is at 0.1 mL? It just doesn't seem like there is much if I go until the plunger goes to 0.1 mL.

    The same question is applicable for the B12 injections. I injected 1 mL based on the plunger, not the actual liquid vitamin. Is that correct?

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, the liquid should be at your mark. And so should the bottom of the plunger.

    Bottom of plunger and liquid need to meet at your mark.

    Austin, I've read and read your post. Thanks again for all of the info. The one question I have is is there anything I can take you help with sleep other than Tylenol pm, prescription meds or melatonin. I see that you said magnesium can help and if that the only one at why dose would I need to take it if that the only one.
    Also, the b12 methyl, is the liquid form just as good or not as comparable. I am really having a hard time eating what I need to. I am REALLY looking into the b12.

    Magnesium. Start at 400mg. Double it if it doesnt work. Get magnesium orotate is you can. If not, Magnesium Citrate.

    Find out why you can't sleep. Don't depend on drugs for too long.

    Liquid methyl drops are just fine. Not comparable to injectable though but they work.

    Thank one, last question. I've read the rules, not sure if it applies here. Can reputable brands and or stores be mentioned. Or at the very least places to stay away from. I'm going to start shopping today.

    I meant for the supplements. Not that I doubted you. It was more a conversation piece with my wife but I checked out the labels on my vitamin b bottle and the totals were tiny compared to your recommended doses. So it quite obvious that Walmart brand vitamins and minerals are no good. Hahaha. Would a health food store carry the supplements that you are talking about. Sorry for the lack of info I my question.

    Hi austinite ..
    I want to ask u about vitamin E.
    Most of the dosages I see comes between 400-800 iu.
    What's up with those crazy dosages? Looks like an over kill..
    I noticed u taking 90 iu and seems I can't find anything near to ur dosage.
    I'm supplementing with Fish oil by carlson as recommended and it has 10 iu within.. Is that enough? Can we take another 800 iu once a week?

    Sorry if the question had been answered.. But it's a 28-page thread

    90 IU mixed tocopherols is what you want to look for. If you can't find it, look for at least Gamma tocopherols as it is superior to Alpha.

    The idea of taking only 10 IU with carlson fish oils is that is is enough to protect the fatty acids. When you ingest fish oils without Vitamin E, most of it goes to waste because of the harsh environment it goes through. Vitamin E protects the essential acids and allows your body to utilize more of them.

    These protective quantities are not enough to aid in protecting you from free radicals like nitrogen dioxide or peroxynitrite for example. So you would need to take higher doses for protection against this. With respect to heart health, the 10 iu in Carlson fish oil is enough because it allows you to benefit from the Fatty acids, which is a staple in heart health.

    So to answer your question, yes. Take another 400 to 800 IU weekly (mixed tocopherols is possible) for added health. But if you want to minimize supplemental intake, just make sure you have E in your fish oils.

    Hope that helps buddy.

    Austinite, Your VASCULARITY protocol didn't work for me nor my friend. I don't recommend it to guys who have high blood pressure and suffer from stomachache. the stuff made me feel so tired before I start my workout. Taking any kind of pre workout supplements are way easier and more effective for both pump and vascular look than buying and taking all the stuff you mentioned in the protocol.

    Sucks for you. But don't give recommendations when you're not sure what you're talking about, in fact, it will LOWER blood pressure. That's what nitric oxide does, it widens your veins...

    Educate yourself heavily before you pitch something that doesn't make sense, please. What do you think is in your pre-workout supplements? Amino acids. Your post is silly, unreliable and misleading.

    Edit: Looking at what little post history you have, you're obviously clueless (Mr. Animal Pak - you should know that stuff is a joke/garbage). I think you're making shit up for some odd reason.

    Hey aus...

    I'm looking to start supplementing zinc, magnesium, and chromium.
    At the minute, my choices are with chromium picolinate, magnesium glycinate and a decent form of zinc.

    Can you reccomend any and at what doses?

    Appreciate it pal.

    For zinc I use a Zinc/copper mix. 50mg zinc in it.

    Magnesium is great at 400 mg before bed. and chromium is not really needed for maintaining better health, but 2-300 mcg daily should suffice.

    Do you know what brands are ok to go for? I'm finding it hard to get a decent zinc chelate. Was hoping for ortate or asparate?

    Also what magnesium product do you take. Looked into now foods but have to see if I can get from Amazon. Cheers.

    Orotate is best. I use powders only, I buy wholesale. What I use really wont help you because you can't get it unless you become a retailer.

    The following brands have my stamp of approval:

    - LEF (Life Extension)
    - NuMedica
    - NOW Products
    - Jarrow
    - Xymogen
    - BIO-TECH
    - McPherson Labs
    - Neuro Biologix

    That's what I was looking for. Thank you. Guess he worded it better haha. I ordered some stuff from Puritan pride. B-12 from the lion. Magnesium really helped my wife with sleep and b-12 has increased my hunger. Thanks again for all the info. I will be finding the rest of your recommendations in time.

    Hey Aus, couple of options here if you dont mind helping me out. Looking around these are the best options I have really and was wondering if they are worth it. Thus doing what they are meant to.

    Zinc
    NOW Zinc Picolinate - NOW Zinc Picolinate 50mg 120 Caps

    Solgar Zinc Citrate - Solgar Zinc Citrate 30 mg Capsules at the health store.ie

    Zinc Gluconate - Maximum Strength Zinc Tablets (25mg) | Holland and Barrett

    Magnesium
    NOW Magnesium Citrate - NOW Magnesium Citrate 120 caps

    Magnesium Citrate - Magnesium Citrate (100mg) | Magnesium | Holland & Barrett

    Along with these ill take 2mg of copper. Thanks Aus.

    Ive also found a Solgar outlet that deals with solgar products. From what I know they are decent products and are not too expensive but you know more than me
