    Niacin rocks. I take that w/ Beta-Alanine in the AM; its tingles more than a little.

    Dr. Houser advocates the use of niacin. Also, he says it has an affect on GH.

    There is a book called the "8 Week Cholesterol Cure", that discusses Niacin supplementation at length. The book claims (and I believe) Niacin does everything a statin does, but w/ very few sides. Big pharma push statins (IMO) because they can't patent Niacin; therefore they can't make money off of it.

    Interesting. I'll have to take a look at it

  5. At doses high enough to control cholesterol nician can be hard on your liver. Check it out. Use Red Yeast Rice if your really worried about cholesterol. Mine is over 300, and has been for 30 years but my arteries are clean as a whistle. Read "The Cholesterol Myth". It's free.

  6. Thank you. That was a very interesting read. I also went to the website and they have terrific information on interaction of Vitamin D and Vitamin K2 (MK-4 and MK-7). I am starting Vitamin K2 supplements later this month.

    K2 is awesome and pretty underutilized

    Yes, the Niacin rush can be tough. I had one yesterday that was overwhelming (due, in part, to my taking it w/ Beta-Alanine).

  13. Currently doing alright on 4-5g taurine per day and .5-1g agmatine (last day on agmatine).

    Up next ill try grape seed extract and turmeric (I like to switch things up after a few months). I've also got some astaxanthin and ameal peptide sitting in my cabinet that ill probably try after the GSE/turmeric)

    My personal fav's are hawthorn extract and coq10 while
    my staples are 1-2 cloves chopped garlic, .5-1teaspoon cayenne pepper in warm water per day, orange oxi-mega greens (has nitrates that may improve BP), vitamin c, and fish oil (the latter 2 have never hhad much of an impact on my numbers, but I like their overall health benefits).

    - also, similar to GSE, resveratol may have a positive impact, and may be good in conjunction with GSE

    You should really talk to a specialist if you're worried. I'm not a doctor and this isn't a recommendation, but a recent study by cochrane that involved around 22,000 people since 1999 showed that those without prior heart problems or conditions did not benefit from taking rx meds for mild hypertension (surprisingly to many of us, 'mild' by their standards is actually 140-159/90-99). Basically, their studies found that if HBP is all you have, without any pre-existing condition, and you're active/in otherwise good health, your chances of having a heart attack or dying is not much greater in that range compared to those who take medicine, but would otherwise be in that range. Do some research on NNT for HBP meds. They have to prescribe something like 110 people medications to prevent ONE episode.

    Obviously you want to reduce your chances, but my dr wanted
    me on prescription at 140/85 before giving me a chance to a) start doing cardio, b) change diet (I was 'bulking'/eat everything in sight that was packed with calories and saturated fat while doing NO cardio), c) addressing my excessive stress from my first semester of law school, etc etc...... I didn't take the prescription and haven't been back, instead check it myself and take supps.

    Dont discount what stress can do to you.my lawschool friend was like high stage 1 to low stage 2 hypertensive at the doctor during our exams first semester.... Over spring he went back and it was fine.

    (im typing from my phone, I apologize for any mistakes or otherwise confusing sentences, I can only see like 5 words at a time hahah)

  14. On another note, I hate underdosed supps that have just a little bit of several different things, but for $13, I might have to try that bio-mend! (lots of supps that are made specifically to control BP are underdosed IMO, and iif you can afford it, buying the individual supplements in higher doses is the way to go)

  15. far simpler answer, are your arms over 14"? If they are, and they used a normal size cuff that time (vs your regular doctor using an appropriate size cuff) that alone can easily throw off the measurement by that much.

    I just started the niacin thing. 1000mcg - woah. I kinda like it, just gotta get over the initial irritation.
