  2. Excess Folic acid, being a synthetic form of folate, can be problematic for some people. Depends how well their body does at converting it to l-methylfolate. Seeing as how in the USA a lot of foods are fortified with it, I personally avoid it in any supplements. If I were to supplement folate I would use 5-mthf

    Jarow's B-Right FTW!

  4. Specifically something like metafolin, extrafolate-s or maybe quatrefolic which is the s-isomer. There is still a question afaik on whether the r-isomer or the racemic mixture could possibly be detrimental. If anyone knows of any further data shedding light on the isomers, please let us know.

    I would not concern yourself with free radicals induced my carnitine pro-oxidation. That effect was documented at the 6 month stage (though it may have occurred sooner).

    LCLT - 2g preworkout
    PLCAR - 2g preworkout or upon rising
    ALCAR - 2g preworkout or upon rising

    I personally take PLCAR at 2g preworkout only and and ALCAR at 2g both preworkout and on off days. When I have LCLT, I use about 3g preworkout.

    Do them all on empty unless you're trying to elevate muscle carnitine (which should NOT be your goal unless you are wealthy).
    I am taking ALCAR, PLCAR and LCLT (each at 2 Gr/day), Beta Alanine (4 Gr/day), Taurine (2 Gr/day), Tyrosine (1 Gr/day), AAKG, ALA (600 Mg/day), and Cittruline Malate (6 Gr/day), and I would like to add Inositol, IP-6, TMG and Choline Citrate. For those most informed, can you please suggest daily amounts of Inositol, IP-6, TMG and Choline Citrate?

    Thanks

  13. What is a good dosage for CoQ10?. I see varying opinions depending on what its "used for". I think I may get a bottle of 100mg caps when I have the money and maybe make it a "staple" of mine.

  14. Is melatonin a good staple I feel it works for me but hard to find enough info on it for ergogenic purposes other than deep restive sleep on demand any help here with info??

    400mg for athletes.

    It's a nice antioxidant and it can normalize sleep cycles. Use at doses of 250mcg-1mg.

    So am I better off just getting 400mg caps and taking once a day or getting a smaller dosage and taking several times a day?. Or does it matter much?

    Not a terribly large deal, just take it with a fatty meal. I take one 400mg cap in the AM with some buttered eggs.

    Cool. 400mg once a day would be easier anyway.

  19. And cheaper. Coq10 is quite pricey.

    Yeah, I've been looking to phase out a lot of ergogenic type supplements and just keep basic health type supplements. Also cutting down on protein drinks and just drink them every few days or so. Gotta cut costs.

  21. Also I've been going back and fourth in my mind wondering about Vitamin D3 supplementation. It just seems way too hyped lately. I could just go ahead and get some and start using it but I don't really think that is safe. Never been tested for it and none of my doctors have ever suggested getting tested. I say "doctors" because I've switched doctors several times in the past year because I have not been happy with my physician. They always seem to rush me out and I'm never given the opportunity to ask questions.

    Use vitamin D3. What is unsafe about supplemental D3? Your body synthesizes far higher amounts via sunlight exposure than any supplement could provide. There is a toxicity study on D3 showing symptoms after ingestion of several million IUs of D3 DAILY for months (no typos).

    I've read that Vitamin D3 can cause a deficiency in Vitamin K.

  24. Again, you would need to consume like 20 bottles of vitamin D pills daily to reach those toxic levels.

    Ok I will try supplementing with D3.

    Thats what i was thinking. Several years ago i tried using Coq10 and SAMe regularly ~ the excessive costs outweighed the benefits for myself

    It depends. If you stop spending money on a lot of unnecessary supplements and just use health type basic supplements I think it is affordable. It's not affordable for me now, but once I catch up on bills and rent....That is, IF I catch up then I will budget for it because it does have many benefits that I think are much more important than supplements that are just for ergogenic value.

  28. Coop do you have any input on whether a greens supplement like I posted above is worth the cost? I think Green Vibrance runs about $50-$55 for a 60 day supply and has one of the most extensive profiles I've seen.

    I don't think it's worth it unless your diet is very deficient in mixed vegetables.
