I've been reading/posting for about 6 months now. I started this regimen about 5 months ago, put together by lurking here and stealing ideas from many of you. Thanks for that
Please tell me what you think about my regimen. My general purposes are better health, mood, stamina, creativity, libido and cognition. In that order. I'm 43, mostly healthy, maybe a tad anhedonic, but nothing serious.
Diet: I'm a pesketarian, trying to lower carbs (almost no rice/pasta for a while, 50% as much bread as I was taking, but still a ways to go)
I also lowered sugars quite a bit.
Would like to incorporate some supergreen food and more herb/plant based stuff
Exercise: light weights 3x/week, moderate cardio 2x/week (I know, the winter brought me down, I was exercising every day in the summer, but I moved to the Southern Hemisphere and I lost a lot of stamina)
Non smoker, moderate alcohol drinker (red wine, 2-3 glasses most days, scotch 1-2 some days)
I could use a little more mood improvement. Toying with the idea of starting with Selegiline 1-2mg/day, but for some reason I resist (concerned about big changes in my brain chemistry that I might regret later)
I could use a little more libido (specially this last month, not sure what happened there, maybe the winter),
I could use a little cognition/verbal fluency boost (yet to implement a noot stack)
I would love some creativity boost. THC worked wonders for me (15+ years ago) until I started getting paranoid and now cannot touch that.
Morning (forgive me the lack of dosage in some, I tossed some bottles)
Resveratrol plus, 100mg, Country Life. (contains grape seed extract)
Fish oil, 3g
Red Yeast rice (I have slightly bad LDL, ok HDL, ok TGC)
Vitamin K2, 1 capsule. Jarrow
Alpha GPC for choline, 1 capsule, Jarrow
C-complex, Jarrow, 1000g
Vitamin D3, 2000 IU
Zinc, 12mg, Jarrow.
Multi, Whole foods brand (planning to switch to Orthocore) 1 capsule.
Creatine, 2-3g, Jarrow, crea-pure.
Lion's mane (half a teaspoon) Cerebralhealth
Vit B12, sublingual. 1 dropper.
Pomegranate/Blackberry/Grape concentrate, Jarrow, 1 tablespoon
Grape seed extract, 1 capsule
Magnesium Malate, GNC
B-complex - Jarrow.
Virgin salmon oil, Swanson, 2g
(I'd love a relaxing addition that would allow me to replace my nightly scotch)
Thanks for your thoughts
