The Real Thing!

Posted on Sep 03, 2013

7 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

Forget all the collagen derivatives and claims, I've wasted time and money on them to no avail. In the industrialized societies, the consumption of gelatin has decreased, relative to the foods that contain an inappropriately high proportion of the antimetabolic amino acids, especially tryptophan and cysteine. The degenerative and inflammatory diseases can often be corrected by the use of gelatin-rich foods.

Nature's Way???

READ THE LABEL! Dl-alpha tocopherol is a byproduct of a petrochemical dependent manufacturing process and may have adverse endocrine-disrupting activities, despite its molecular/chemical similarity to the natural isomer known as D-alpha tocopherol. No more Nature's way products for me...should have read the label before now!

MEN: cut these in half!

Posted on Aug 24, 2014

Purchased at iHerb

Anti-stress effects;Adaptogen. Max = 500mg/day! Recommended for MALE health including virility and vitality. Tribulus terrestris is a plant from Ayurveda where the roots enhance libido and sexual well being without affecting testosterone while the fruits appear to be potently protective of organ function. Enhances androgen receptor density in the brain. Extracts appear to be fairly effective in reducing pain perception in response to chemical and heat pain tests, with a potency comparable to some reference drugs. Tribulus root appears to increase rigidity of erections and improve performance (reduce anxiety while delaying ejaculation and improving orgasm)

CALM ENERGY!

Niacinamide; lowering free fatty acids and regulating the redox system supporting sugar oxidation, is useful in the whole spectrum of metabolic degenerative diseases. The amounts needed seem large if niacinamide is thought of as “vitamin B3,” but it should be considered as a factor that compensates for our unphysiological exposure to inappropriate fats. Niacinamide lowers serum phosphate (Cheng, et al., 2008), by inhibiting intestinal absorption (Katai, et al., 1989), and also by reducing its reabsorption by the kidneys One little-known benefit of niacinamide is that it works as a powerful anti-inflammatory. In fact, for 50 years now niacinamide has been known to effectively relieve the pain of arthritis with no toxicity and rare side effects

Physical/cognitive vitality

It appears to be proven for reducing fatigue and exhaustion in prolonged stressful situations. Rhodiola is also neuroprotective and promotes longevity in preliminary evidence. Usage of Rhodiola as a daily preventative against fatigue has been reported to be effective in doses as low as 50mg. Acute usage of rhodiola for fatigue and anti-stress has been noted to be taken in the 288-680mg range. Rhodiola has been shown to have a bell-curve response, it is recommended to not exceed the aforementioned 680mg dosage as higher doses may be ineffective.

Update...

Seems to help my recovery from heavy long biking... 1-2 caps in the morning on empty stomach. 1,500mg citrulline daily (two daily doses of 750mg) for 6 weeks was able to increase erectile hardness in men suffering from erectile dysfunction, with a 50% improvement seen with citrulline treatment.
