    Shameless self plug! J/k. You said post progress here. Lol. I won't make this thread my bitch like that. There's where I update my progress. Much of that is due to the supplement advice here (no not taking about juice!). Blood results will show how much if any the lipids have been controlled since 5 wks ago. Draw yesterday.

    HP thanks for the input I never thought to really consider this but I will now because I have to say my patience is little next to nothing not to mention my attention span. I do find my mind racing and feeling overwhelmed very quickly but I just attributed it to being anxious. Learning and completeing tasks has become much more difficult as I gotten older unless I have a big personal interest in the results or outcome. Its up and down really but down more then up that is for sure. I am sure my doctor can chat with me about this and see if it is a problem. I will do my own research of course and talk to the doc.

    Is this something you've had a problem with?

I take 25,000 iu every Sunday. Talk about needing to update my list.

    Hey Aust, is there a reason that you dont dose this daily? And only superdose once a week? Im thinking of picking up some 8000IU tabs as they're super cheap.

    You know, OTC supps can certainly help. And it's the route I would go before getting on any prescription. It's always worth a try. You could increase your serotonin production by supplementing with L-Tryptophan in the morning and around lunchtime. Just don't take it before bed (even though it will help you sleep, you may develop nightmares).

    Hope to see you get out f this rut.

    Keeps working for over a week. Long long life. Daily dosing is ok but not needed.

    As I have been seeing threads about leucine, I wanted your opinion on it. I know it is one of the three branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), and it aids in protein synthesis. Is there a reason you don't supplement with it? I currently don't supplement with any BCAAs.

    I'm practicing my podcasting so here's an audio reply. If you can't hear it let me know. Planning on podcasting a few times a month soon. Still can't figure out how to make audio not so choppy.

    I heard it perfectly man. There was a little weird background noise that I suspect is something technical (the choppiness that you were referring to), but it was by no means a distraction. That was a great reply though. It saves a lot of time too because it would have taken a lot of time (and typos) to type up.

    Here are a couple of links to sites that list foods high in leucine. With the whey protein isolate, eggs, egg whites, and cottage cheese I eat, I think I get plenty of leucine (> 10 grams).

    Lmao. Yeah maybe that is why I didn't imagine your voice that way. You mentioned that you plan to podcast a few times per month, may I ask what you plan to podcast on? Are you just going to answer many of the questions that are asked here in more detail?

    Lol. Funny how we associate things online. I know youre not female but I got the same impression. 'oh wow his voice is lower than I imagined it' haha. Cool idea. Sounded fine to me other than the volume was too low to hear on my android unless I put it right up tip my ear. Can you increase the recording gain level a bit on future casts?

    lmao. Answering questions will certainly be a part of it. I'm going to discuss the same stuff we do here, research more supplements and talk about them. Maybe limit 2 to 3 items per podcast and then answer questions after. If it's a hit I'll do it more often. A lot easier to just talk it out than to type. Besides, my fingers are too fat. Backspace is worn out.

    Awesome. Another thing I will be on the lookout for in this thread. I suspect it will be quite popular, and with its popularity will come a lot of questions. Here is my preemptive apology, "I'm sorry," lol.

    Start with 2 grams and work your way up to 8 grams, or if you feel discomfort, which ever comes first

    Oh also, what kinda discomfort we talking here with the GPLC?
    Just from reading about it, it seems pretty amazing, even if it does half the things they claim it does.

    I ran it over 10 grams and experienced some cramping. Screwed up my workouts bigtime. But so long as you stay away from that "zone" you'll benefit from it. It's good stuff.

    While we are on the topic of carnitine, I was wondering whether or not you are still supplementing with it? I know you don't believe in the recent studies linking it to atherosclerosis, but I am still curious. If you supplement with lysine and methionine is it really necessary to supplement with carnitine too? I know carnitine is a compound biosynthesized from lysine and methionine so that is why I ask.

    Yes, I was on 3 grams of L-Carnitine Liquid oral daily forever and now I'm up to 6 grams. Yes, you still benefit from Lysine and Methionine. I'll post a follow up on Carnitine in the original post and explain why tomorrow.

    I look forward to reading about it.

    Pycnogenol

    Alright. So I've been supplementing with this compound for a short while now. This is by far the most expensive compound in my OTC supplement list. You get what you pay for, right? Let's find out...

    The reason this compound is expensive is because it comes from the French Maritime Pine tree. It's bark extract. Apparently its bark is far superior and more consistent than any other, making it unique and in high demand. Processing seems to be a very difficult task as well. The going price $3,700 for about 2 lbs. There's also a patent in there somewhere, so everyone has to get paid. Ridiculous, but that's why it's so expensive.

    So what are the advertised uses for Pycnogenol?

    please note: There are more benefits, I'm only listing the ones that concerned me.

    - Circulation Related Issues
    - High Blood Pressure
    - Muscle Soreness
    - Erectile Dysfunction

    How does Pycnogenol work?

    Pycnogenol binds to collagen. It increases oxygen delivery and decreases carbon dioxide. This gives you much healthier, more elastic and less wrinkled skin. The main thing they pitch however, is it's ability to increase circulation by increasing vessel diameter; allowing blood to flow better and inevitably delivering more nutrients.

    My experience with Pycnogenol:

    I started and finished 2 bottles. In total, 100 capsules at 60 mg each. My dosing protocol was 2 in the morning, and 2 before bed, for a total of 240 mg daily. I started over a month ago and finished a week or so ago. The reason I haven't updated was because I wanted to see what happens when I come off of it. Well, nothing happened. No changes to the skin, no decreased vascularity and no drop in my Nitric Oxide levels. And there was no huge changes in my blood pressure.

    I also came off of Magnesium (my preferred muscle relaxer) for one week during this experiment, to see if my post workout soreness was relieved or shortened to some degree. This was not the case. The only thing I noticed was the lack of magnesium and I was very happy to jump back on it. So I give it a zero for muscle related relief.

    I chose not to come off of cialis an everything else I take that aids with my erectile dysfunction. Mainly because I understood exactly how Pycnogenol would help me in that area, and it's no different than what I'm already doing. Would it work, however? Absolutely, but I doubt it if doses were considerable, making it quite the expensive fix.

    Now, I understand that benefits to the skin can take some time to build up, but its circulation properties are supposed to be almost immediate. I am absolutely confident that this drug can and most likely will benefit most users. But it does nothing for me. My NO levels are through the roof due to my current protocol. My blood pressure and erectile dysfunction are both under control without this drug. So why did I really take it? Well, the same damn reason I take Amino Acids, for increased vascularity and better pump. No gains there.

    The max recommended dose is 180 mg. I knew I had to increase it if I wanted to see anything from it considering what I already take. So I pretty much wasted my time with this compound. I really hate to say that I don't have long term experience with it because, who knows, maybe long term use will yield more benefits. But for now, I'm sticking to my reliable friend: Cialis.

    Who do I recommend this for?

    Women. Women can benefit from Pycnogenol with relief from the following:

    - Menopausal Symptoms
    - Cramping from Menstrual Periods
    - Reproductive System Issues

    The skin and circulation benefits obviously are on the list above for women.

    I also recommend this for folks who would like the skin-related anti aging benefits, because it is quite unique in that area and binds to collagen like no other. My experience was probably too short to validate this but I'm putting my trust in the studies and a dermatologist's (friend of mine) endorsement.

    I also recommend this for those who are acne prone.

    There you have it. Hopefully this helps you make a more informed decision. For me, I simply can't justify the price.
