First of all: thank you for sharing so much fascinating information here, I really like the scientific approach!
Note: English is not my native language, but I will do my best to make my message clear.
I'm a 19-years old guy with asperger syndrome (autism) and I am looking for ways to reduce depression and especially anxiety. I find longevity interesting, but that isn't my goal. I want to 'live less inside my head', have a clear mind, stay fit and above all enjoy life.
I don't have a lot of money so I can't afford a lot of supplements but I do take the following supplements:
- Multivitamin (label, in dutch)
- Magnesium (citrate, ascorbate) 187,5 mg with Vitamin C (magnesiumascorbate) 250 mg and 5 μg vitamin D3.
- Fish oil with 330mg EPA and 220mg DHA.
Recently I take a cold (or contrast) shower everyday, wich I highly recommend! Cold showers have a lot of benefits such as increase the blood level of beta-endorphin and noradrenaline and likely glutathione.
I am also doing a training 'MBSR (Mindfulness-based stress reduction)', but its too soon to tell the effects of this training.
I am especially looking for more things (activities, exercises, books, supplements etc.) that might help to reduce anxiety and stay fit.
Thanks for reading (and perhaps responding).
