    Dutch’sDirty (Baker’s) Dozen of Vitamins

    I take dozens of different things but the followinglist consists of the most important to me. They all have some impact on my physical performance in the gym as theyaffect in some way strength/energy/recovery/metabolism etc. Butthey all make the list because they exert tremendous influence on my health,immune system, brain, heart, eyesight, joints, memory. They do a great job against the greatestthreats we face.
    1. Vitamin D3 15,000 IUs
    2. Omega 3s 3 – 6 gms
    3. Astaxanthin 10 mgs
    4. Ubiquinol(CoQH) 100 mgs
    5. Curcumin(Turmeric) 1 gm
    6. Green Tea Extract 2-3 gms
    7. Creatine 4 – 5 gms
    8. Beta-Alanine(Carnosine) 4 – 5 gms
    9. ALCAR 4 gms
    10. ALA 600mgs
    11. Coconut Oil 3 tbspns
    12. Cissus 1.5 gms @ 10% or 2.5 gms @ 5%
    13. Resveritrol (2 glasses of Cab or Merlot)


    Kudos and respect to you Dutchman for exemplifying that aging does not have to mean losing one's health.
    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.

  2. 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.

    Comments appreciated!

  3. 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.

  4. 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

    I also don't get tingles when i dose it anywhere near a meal with carbs in it. So if you're drinking it over the day then that may be the case.

    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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

    Let me know if this continues to improve!

    Definitely going to be looking into that.

    Where are you applying the cream?

    Second day now that I have noticed improvent. The soreness has actually had me limping in pain and keeping me away from the gym.

    I am applying to back and side of my knees and shoulders, chest areas. 1/2 pump twice per day.

    I have been reading that progesterone is a great anti-inflammatory and a hood anti-estrogen. Both are evils we want to control. It's a big myth and misconception that it is solely a female hormone. I highly recommend it.

    Getting my END OF OLD AGE shipment today. Looking forward to using pregnenolone (mother of all hormones) and astaxanthin!

  12. And my knee ligament keeps getting better everyday

  13. Hey... I'm looking for some references on the op's claims...

    Where are the studies supporting the defeat of the hayflick limit?

    I'd like something to be able to use for citation in a conversation with my friend and father.

    Thanks

    I'm not sure if this is enough for you, but if not, there is plenty of reading on pubmed and through google.





    Carnosine reacts with protein carbonyl groups: another possible role for the anti-ageing peptide?

    Abstract
    Carnosine (beta-alanyl-L-histidine) can delay senescence and provoke cellular rejuvenation in cultured human fibroblasts. The mechanisms by which such a simple molecule induces these effects is not known despite carnosine's well documented anti-oxidant and oxygen free-radical scavenging activities. Carbonyl groups are generated on proteins post-synthetically by the action of reactive oxygen species and glycating agents and their accumulation is a major biochemical manifestation of ageing. We suggest that, in addition to the prophylactic actions of carnosine, it may also directly participate in the inactivation/disposal of aged proteins possibly by direct reaction with the carbonyl groups on proteins. The possible fates of these 'carnosinylated' proteins including the formation of inert lipofuscin, proteolysis via the proteasome system and exocytosis following interaction with receptors are also discussed. The proposal may point to a hitherto unrecognised mechanism by which cells/organisms normally defend themselves against protein carbonyls.

    Pubmed and google. Here is one of a dozen in pubmed.

    I'd seen some earlier studies which suggested that extra cell divisions did not happen with carnosine, but that in other ways it returned the cells to much healthier function, and created a longer time between cell divisions, thus increasing lifespan of the cells, and health of the cells during that lifespan.
    This one caught my by surprise. I would need this backed up, but certainly carnosine or beta alanine are remarkable.

  17. Received my shipment.

    Been taking,
    Pregnonolone
    Progrsterone
    Beta Alinine
    Astaxanthin
    L-arginine

    Beta Alinine give nice body tingled. Boy oh boy. Really feeling it now!
    L-arginine feels nice and warm.
    Progesterone is healing my ligaments.
    Pregnonlone made me feel smarter for first few days, now nothing.
    Astaxanthin, nothing seems hyped.
    Hyaloronic acid, nothing much, hyped?

    Do you feel anything or get immediate results from fish oil? Not really. Vitamin D3? Only if you take a mega-dose of it, and then you will notice it. Health supplements are subtle, you get the results often from blood tests much later, and a quiet sense of well being. If you stop taking a health supplement that's working well for you, you will notice the lack of it in a fairly short time.

    Beta Alanine and to a lesser degree L-arginine are not just health supplements, they are also noticeable as sport supplements for endurance, recovery, and N.O. (arginine) effects. These kick in a few days after starting.

  20. Agreed, Tuberman. I only posted about the possible hype of astaxanthin and hyalauronic acid because of the astonishing reviews and research stating energy increases, decreases in wrinkles, anti inflammatory claims etc etc. These are not subtle claims and noticeable claims. Others have a right to know. If I feel anything positive, I will post it.

    I am especially disappointed with astaxanthin as it has been promoted as a miracle supplement. So far nothing.

    Lucky, which brand of astaxanthin did you get and what doses are you using?

    I ordered some on Dutchmans results. Obviously, i read up on it first but couldn't find anything bad on it. Maybe it's one of those supps that works better over the long term.

    Well, some people do claim to get fantastic results immediately from health supplements, and in most cases I take such claims with a lot of skepticism. You will notice that Dutchman said it took astaxanthin two years to normalize his vision, that is typical of even "miracle" supplements in the health category. Astaxanthin needs to be taken with high-fat meals otherwise absorbtion is minimal or less than 5%. I'm not picking on you here, but I'm saying I have different expectations then you. I feel thateven "miracle" health supps take weeks and even months to show their strength.

  23. Good point, in fact I take my Astaxanthin every morning along with 2.7 gms of Omega 3s.

  24. Would it be worth purchasing Beta-Alanine w/ L-Histidine?

    I found 500g of BA for about $24, or the same amount of a mixture w/~10% L-Histindine for about the same price.

    Should I opt for the mixture?

    From what i have read our bodies suplly us with enough Histidine so supplementing with it should not be necessary.
