Helps me feel better

Posted by danarm on Oct 31, 2014

Great antioxidant. It upregulates the Nrf2 metabolic pathway which means the body will produce more of its own natural antioxidants. The bottle sat in my cabinet for months but when I finally got around to talking it I discovered that it's one of the best supplements I have ever taken.

Excellent multivitamin

Posted by danarm on May 09, 2015

After years of experiments searching for the perfect multivitamin I have finally discovered Thorne 2/day. It makes me feel good, probably because it does not contain extras such as ALA, NAC, choline, etc - which are good for many people but are not good for my particular situation. Thanks, Thorne, for sticking to the basics and providing all of them in the most healthy form.

In theory helps with the eyes. In practice I didn't notice any effect.

Posted by danarm on Sep 15, 2013

I think the eye strain and pain I have after working on the computer may be due to eye muscle strain and circulation strain, and not a problem with the retina (which Lutein helps). I have also taken Zeaxanthin from LEF, with no effect. Strange. I tried many brands of Lutein, with no effect. Instead of lutein, I recommend taking Idebenone (which had an effect on my tired eyes from the very first softgel I took) and Astaxanthin (which takes about 1 month to build up).

Helps with joints and skin

Posted by danarm on Sep 15, 2013

Taking this every day helped the skin on my face a lot. 10 grams of collagen every day taken for 6 months have been clinically proven to improve the joints. The MRI scans clearly show this. Also, there should be an effect on the skin. This is much better than the pill version from Neocell, because you can mask the taste by mixing it with a liquid.

The best form of Omega 3

Posted by danarm on Dec 11, 2014

There are 3 forms of Omega 3: triglycerides, ethyl ester and phospholipids. This form (phospholipids) is the best of the 3 forms. It offers more brain, liver and heart benefits. It is especially helpful for fatty liver and attention issues (ADD / ADHD).

Good for DIETING and SKIN (and many other things)

Posted by danarm on Aug 29, 2014

Adding collagen to a protein shake will make it thicker and make it absorb slower. This is why it's good for dieting: it keeps you full longer. Aging people need at least 10 g of collagen per day to replace what is lost. I take 50 g per day, 5 days a week, in the protein shake I drink at work. People can not believe how good my skin looks for my age. Another excellent supplement which makes your skin glow is Acetyl-Glutathione. It's a form of glutathione which can be absorbed into cells.

Excellent

Posted by danarm on Dec 10, 2013

A nice amount per pill (750 mg). I take this 3 times daily and it helps me with my thyroid, energy and general mood (tyrosine boosts dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine).

Complete version of mitochondrial cocktail from LEF

Posted by danarm on Apr 27, 2012

It should increase mitochondrial biogenesis and protect mitochondria. Feel almost no effect, except for a blood sugar drop (which is bad) caused by the ALA.

Helps me sleep and wake up happy

Posted by danarm on Jul 17, 2013

Tryptophan is a precursor of serotonin (the happy hormone) and melatonin (the sleep hormone). So, if you take it, your brain will make both melatonin (to help you fall asleep) and serotonin (to make you happy). I take 4-6 pills (2-3 grams) of Tryptophan every night. It gets me to sleep and keeps me sleeping better than Melatonin. I wake up happy and energetic as a result of serotonin production. It also produces sleep entrainment (if you take it at 10 PM, you will fall asleep at 10-11 PM, even if you stop taking it). After some time, it loses it's effect, and I have to switch to something else periodically. This is because there are some enzymes which break down tryptophan. The normal quantity of Trypthopan taken in through diet is 1.5-2 g. May reduce carbohydrate consumption. Most people overeat carbohydrates because carbs help tryptophan cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB). When obese patients were given 1,000 mg, 2,000 mg, or 3,000 mg doses of L-tryptophan one hour before meals to raise the amount of tryptophan, a significant decrease in caloric consumption was observed. The majority of the reduction in caloric intake was due to the amount of carbohydrates, not protein, consumed.

Best multivitamin - well formulated and it DOES NOT INCREASE MY APPETITE!!!

Posted by danarm on Dec 10, 2013

This multivitamin (AOR Ortho-Core) is the best multivitamin available. It is very well formulated. I have taken many multivitamins (including the famous Life Extension Mix) and they ALL increase my appetite - which makes me gain weight. However, AOR Ortho-Core does not seem to increase my appetite, which is very importantant. I decided to take Ortho-Core with a greens supplement such as Vibrant Greens. Most multivitamins increase appetite. Doctors don't admit it, but if you carefully study each vitamin on PubMed, you will discover things such as: "Vitamin B6 speeds up gastric emptying". What happens after gastric emptying has been accomplished? You get hungry again! I still take a good multivitamin every day for the other health effects, which are comprehensively proven by science. In addition to a multivitamin, I take a good greens drink such as Vibrant Greens or Green Fields - which doesn't contain added vitamins.
