    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    D3
    Fish Oil
    Magnesium
    BCAA (only around my weights sessions)
    Protein Blend (whey,casein,egg)

    Activator X butter oil and Fermented cod liver I tend to cycle 3 weeks on 1 off for a testestorone/libido boost.

    Really rate this as an incredible libido boost:

    This thread topic comes up pretty regularly, and I always feel inclined to chime in.

    Used to take
    -50-300mg of 5-HTP for depression management, no longer need to (taken before bed)
    -500mg of L-Tryptophan for depression management, no longer need it (taken before bed)
    -500mg of Tyrosine for general anxiety and focus, no longer need to (taken before food in morning)
    -Candex, for yeast control, no longer works (2x daily, before morning and evening meals)

    Now taking
    -125mg grapefruit seed extract, 2x daily, for yeast control (on empty stomach, before morning and evening meals)
    -garlic extract/essence capsule, 1x daily, for yeast control/digestive issues (right before eating morning meal)
    -5,000-10,000IU of vitamin D, depends on how I feel, for deficiency (last tested in a good range, but looking for a good maintenance level) (taken with morning food)
    -400mg of Magnesium Citrate, for digestive issues (taken before bed)
    -4,500mg of L-Glutamine, 2x daily, for digestive issues/intestinal health (taken on empty stomach before morning and evening meals)
    -1000mg of Vitamin C, for digestive support (taken on empty stomach before morning meal and before bed)
    -Acidophilus capsule with at least 2 meals a day, for digestive support/yeast control
    -Alive! for women multi-vitamin with breakfast (for overall support and trace minerals)

    I'm using Gutsense.org as a guide for my digestive issues. Yeah, it's a lot, but in the long run (hopefully not TOO long), it should help. Eventually, I should be down to just Vitamin D on a regular basis.

    WHy do you take Mag Citrate? I got some over the weekend that come in 250mg capsules. I find it relaxes me a lot and I think I sleptt better these past few days. It is interesting seeing that I had never heard of it before this forum.

    Zn
    5HTP (3x a day)

    I also buy and eat 1 35 g pack of Bullweed per week & 2-3 Brazil nuts a day on the weekdays.

    Fish oil (wild alaskan salmon): 2k to 4k mg a day
    Magnesium: 410 mg a day
    MSM (for my tenosynovitis): 1k mg a day
    Vitamin D3: 1k IU a day
    C: 1k mg a day
    Creatine: 5 grams every other day

    I also usually take zinc and B12 but I ran out and haven't bought more yet. I also sometimes use protein powder (whey isolate) if I have trouble getting enough protein through regular food for whatever reason.

    I also take fluoxetine (prozac), 60 mg a day, and have for the last six years. Ultimately I'd like to transition off of that and onto more natural supplements (like 5-HTP) but that's in the future for now.

    Just something I got at CVS. Who knows if it actually does anything, my digestive system is too messed up right now for me to tell!

    I used to take:
    Vitamin D3
    Magnesium citrate
    Iodine/Iodide
    Occasional potassium and selenium (too much selenium made my hair fall out)

    Now I am rather lax about any of those and take them only rarely. Been drinking bone broth at breakfast and adding a lot of salt to my food. Both those seem to make me feel a lot perkier.

    Starting squat: 45lbs. Current squat: 180 x 2. Current Deadlift: 230 x 2
