  1. The official ask me anything thread


    Hey guys,

    So as you may know, I've been a long time contributor to the forums, so I wanted to start a thread where you can ask any question in particular about supplements and health without worrying about being judged, etc. I'm going to eventually make some podcasts that feature what I think are the most interesting questions, and discuss them at length (so much more information can be conveyed over audio than text). I hope you join in!

  2. Fairly vague question but how easy/likely is it to lose muscle in a moderate, IE 500 calorie, deficit with adequate protein. I read conflicting information on this very often from certain people saying it is extremely unlikely to others saying muscle will definitely be lost. Obviously training intensity/programming will impact the outcome also along with supplements/drugs.

    I'm not Synapsin, and I'd very much like to hear his opinion on this, but if I can take a stab at it, the following may be potential reasons/explanations (note: I am not in any way saying that I personally agree with any of the following, only that they may be potential issues and/or things that other people think relevant to the topic):

    -Men vs Women as supplement buyers. The majority of supplement users/buyers tend to be males, which means that they wouldn't be using a women's libido supplement for personal use. This trend still seems to hold true among educated supplement users and forum members; most of us here are guys, I think (it's 2017, who knows who identifies as what).

    -Differences the relationship between libido and sexual function between men and women. Of course, while libido and sexual function and performance are related, they aren't inherently the same thing; one can have libido and not proper sexual function (ex: can't get it up), or proper sexual function but no real libido (or desire to have sex). Of course, libido, or becoming excited/aroused, can often improve sexual performance. Often times, men will think that something that improves libido will make them harder and/or last longer (be better in bed), so they look for a "libido supplement" when they actually want something that will improve sexual function (which aren't exactly always the same thing). As a male, if you can't get it up, or keep it up, sex becomes difficult, if not impossible, so guys will want to remedy this problem for sure. On the other hand, women don't have to "get it up" to have sex, hence the common stereotype you see/hear about women "just going along with it for their husband" or "faking it." Perhaps a man is more likely to be concerned with and conscious of his sexual performance than a woman is, which could lead more men to seek some sort of "enhancement," with a common thought process of increasing libido = better performance. Of course, that's not to say that women don't also want to be better in bed, or enjoy it more, but, in popular culture at least, sexual encounters usually end prematurely because of the man.

    There are supplements that have research showing that they can improve female libido and/or sexual function:

    Ashwagandha:
    The analysis indicates that treatment with HCARE leads to significantly higher improvement, relative to placebo, in the FSFI Total score (p < 0.001), FSFI domain score for “arousal” (p < 0.001), “lubrication” (p < 0.001), “orgasm” (p = 0.004), and “satisfaction” (p < 0.001), and also FSDS score (p < 0.001) and the number of successful sexual encounters (p < 0.001) at the end of the treatment. Conclusions. This study demonstrated that oral administration of HCARE may improve sexual function in healthy women.

    Maca:
    Maca root may alleviate SSRI-induced sexual dysfunction in postmenopausal women.
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4411442/
    Two RCTs suggested a significant positive effect of maca on sexual dysfunction or sexual desire in healthy menopausal women or healthy adult men
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2928177/

    Potentially Tribulus:
    Tribulus terrestris may safely and effectively improve desire in women with hypoactive sexual desire disorder. Further investigation of Tribulus terrestris in women is warranted.
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4045980/

    Fenugreek:
    There was a significant increase in free testosterone and E2 in the active group as well as sexual desire and arousal compared with the placebo group. The results indicate that this extract of T. foenum-graecum may be a useful treatment for increasing sexual arousal and desire in women.

    Sorry for hijacking your thread Synapsin. Hopefully I made a little bit of sense though. I definitely look forward to hearing your input and opinion on this topic!
