For those of you who are new here, and for returning readers, I plan to create a monthly update on my supplement regimen and goals.
In the past, I kept mainly mental notes of my goals and supplement regimens, which probably caused a considerable amount of disorganization. I change this now by creating this sort of journal for what I intend to do and accomplish. I do not intend this to be a stand-in for my regular posts, but rather a supplement (heh) so I can make posts more often.
Goals for February 2016
- Maintain adequate nutrient intake, particularly trace minerals, Omega-3 fatty acid and testosterone support.
Current Daily Supplement Regimen
- All day
- Water with ConcenTrace mineral drops
- Mornings –
- Evenings –
- 1 capsule TestoJack 100
- 1 capsule Carlson Fish Oil
Other notes: I use a 7-day AM/PM pill organizer for capsules. I have no vitamin C on hand at the moment so I try to ingest one large citrus fruit per day.
Regimen, experimentation plans and other notes
- Trace Minerals, Magnesium: Currently I am still taking trace minerals with water wherever I remember in order to get extra magnesium in my diet. I usually carry a water bottle with me to ensure I am drinking more water.
- Muira puama: I have trimmed down my supplement intake considerably to try and better understand the effects of the herbal muira puama on its own before penning my “official” review.
- Ashwagandha, Bacopa: I plan to reintroduce ashwagandha and bacopa into my regimen after seeing my initial experience with muira puama.
- TestoJack: Taking a few days off TestoJack 100 allowed me to see the difference in effect with/without it (stronger libido with it). Either I became used to its effects, or I lost sensitivity to the herbs and nutrients.
- Tianeptine: I plan to continue exploring tianeptine sodium‘s effects at the therapeutic 12.5 mg dosage before I review it. I also plan to reorder some kratom in order to try and understand the subjective difference between strains. I may consider trying tianeptine sulfate (supposedly has a longer half life) if this one turns out to be good.
- Rhodiola: I strongly suspect that a dose of rhodiola in the last week of January caused an edible cannabis preparation I ingested that same day to be broken down more slowly and to intensify the effects. One reddit poster confirmed with a study that rhodiola may inhibit a certain metabolic pathway in the liver that also happens to be the one that THC is metabolized through. 1 This time it caught me off guard to a hilarious extent, but I will have to try again to see whether this effect is real, and whether it potentiates other substances for better or for worse.
- Piracetam: I still have a big tub of piracetam I am waiting to use. I haven’t used piracetam in quite a while (a couple years!) but I’m ready to put it to the test for everyday use for a week in a full time educational setting.
- Vitamin C, NAC: I need to pick up more vitamin C and N-Acetyl Cysteine. Both of these seemed to really aid certain aspects of my health: liver metabolism and dental.
