Sounds like there is hope still with the doctors. Do you take anything more then what the doc gives you?
Check out my END OF OLD AGE order.
~beta alanine (dropped l-carnosine, hope works just as good)
~pregnenolone cream and oral
I'm currently spending 6 months on what I call a rejuv (reverse aging) program. I also use a couple of strong endurance supplements as I want to raise that too. I did buy some DMAE, COQ10 cream ($9 at SwansonVitamins) and 50 grams of carnosine along with the 200 grams of beta alanine. I plan to use the carnosine saturated in coconut oil as a skin cream as 3-4 grams goes a long ways. The Japanese make carnosine skin creams at about $60 to $80 per 1.5 ounces. I've never cared about the narcissist looks thing much, but I want to play with this and see what's possible.
The endurance supps I use are cordyceps mushrooms (what the Sherpas use to climb high in the Himalayas without oxygen), and GPLC an amazing form of carnitine that is super for endurance. Both of these actually give you an edge in weigh training too, their effects are so powerful. They really shine with cardio efforts though.
My brother's doc gives him enough injectable test to keep him at the 1150 level. A lot of stuff has happened to me since I was on here before, and I hit a full sized deer with my car while driving home from work on my last drive home before a weeks vacation, on my birthday yet. Oh, well, as the song says, I'll roll with it. But probably using a different car.
Doesn't Carnosine absorb HORRIBLY?? I thought you needed huge amounts to get any decent amount in your blood
DUTCHMAN, don't give up the fight! your wisdom and insight are worth more than you could imagine!As I said, I stopped fighting that war here years ago.
Thanks for providing a list of your natural supplements. Going to definitely look into making my own stack.
And going to definitely try the eyesight improvement nutrients.
Mine comes from having a job being at a PC all day and even breaks still don't stop all of the strain.
On my days off my vision is noticeably better. Trying to get into another type of job.
Anyway, great posts everyone.
I learned a lot. Thanks.

Great info Dutchman! I just started taking 3.2g of beta-alanine a day and haven't felt the tingling effects at all. The first time I drank the 3.2g in 32fl oz of water in an hour and felt nothing. Now I drink the 3.2g in 64fl oz of water over the course of the day. Am I diluting it too much? I also bought some taurine but I'm not sure on optimal doses. I've been taking (i think) 5g of taurine intra-workout in my intra-shake which has pure karbolyn, protein, leucine, and creatine in it.
aTeam, not everyone gets those tingles and the lower the amount you take the less likely they are. I've been taking a good 4 gms daily for years and now take it twice a day for 8 gms. I also take it all at the same time. If you water it down and spread it out over the day that might just be the reason you don't feel it. What is important to feel is the results in the gym. I love it stacked with my creatine mono. I pump up, recover faster and just seem bigger and stronger. Maybe try taking a little more and all at once? Good Luck.
I'm so glad I found this thread. At 39 I'm glad I see that I can keep building and growing. Thanks to all esp. Dutch ;-) great info
It is not the kind of car you drive. It is whether you can flip it.
I cycle on and off but when i'm on i also use Citrulline Malate with Beta Alanine and start drinking it on the way to the gym and finish about halfway through. Drink plenty of water with it as well.
Thanks for the comments guys. My only concern is it isn't all getting absorbed when I drink it in so much water. I feel like the water just passes through me and I piss it out. Not getting tingles may be related to my ironclad stomach, very few things upset my stomach. I'm sure as I get older that will change, I'm 20. I'll try 3.2g in one 8oz drink and see what happens. Honestly I'm just curious what all this tingle business is about.
BTW people the reason why I use coconut oil like in the Dutchman's supplement list is that it too has many health purposes, but equally important is it sets you up to keep your test levels high. Of all the healthy fats, coconut oil is the best for this, although fish oil and extra virgin olive oil are decent too. Healthy fats lay the foundation for good hormone levels.
Back to the original carnosine post. I intend to try an experiment. I purchased 50 grams of bulk carnosine, and have saturated 3-4 grams of it into 2 ounces of liquid coconut oil. I have a large, deep scar from a major knee surgery in January of this year. I intend to apply this oil with the carnosine powder in it to that scar twice a day for a couple of months as I'm interested in the effect of the carnosine externally. Just curious.
I realize this is off the topic of Carnosine but on topic with END OF OLD AGE. I have been applying NOW progesterone cream for 3 days now and what I have noticed is that the damaged ligament in my knee which I have been living with for 2 months now is feeling better. Upon googling ligaments and progesterone, there seems to be some correlation.
