I started taking AMS's 1AD/4AD stack. Power, strength and are way up, but I read somewhere that one of the side effects is that one bruises more easily.
About a week into the cycle I got a bruise on my right heel (from the treadmill), so now I'm back to the stair-stepper and the elliptical (which is kind of a bummer, because I was hoping to ditch some bodyfat, and not being able to run makes it harder).
Does anyone know of any herbal protection or cures for the bruising? I just started trying an Arnica homeopathic, but so far I still have the bruise.
Also, I'm taking a ton of herbs for liver/kidney protection, but would appreciate any suggestions and/or feedback. Basically I am just taking straight herb powders from the health food store and then knocking them back with water, because that is the cheapest way to go (by a lot). Here is my mix:
Milk Thistle powder
(actually this one is in v-caps)
Basically I just knock back a heaping teaspoon (with water) each time I take the 1AD/4AD. It's not too bad.
Also, I should probably add that I take Zhi Bai Di Huang Wan (Chinese herbal for kidneys) and Liu Wei Di Huang Wan (for liver), even though these work on a totally different system.
I'd gladly cash in the pro-hormones for trans-dermal if it was legal, but it's not, so that's out for me. I just need to know if anyone knows what to do about the bruising, or if anyone has any suggestions for liver and kidney protection, because I want to be more fit, but longevity is more important to me.
Thank you in advance for your help.
