New Reg Insight - Does this look right?

* * * - -
l-carosine pqq co q-10 tumeric grapeseed astaxanthin fulvic acid folic acid

Description

I originally set this up for anxiety and mental health but since then have added for life extension and antioxidant health. I have taken all of these independently not on regiment with no problems but I would like some opinions on the timing and safety of these. I'm slightly concerned on blood pressure lowering with some of these but not sure if I'm taking enough to get to that level. If you see something that sticks out let me know. Also I'm new but a long time lurker so any help would be great. If it adds to anything I'm currently in a ketogenic diet


I will also be taking Fish oil, Vit C, and Folic Acid

Take Carnosine on an empty stomach. 

 

I don't really see any specific blood pressure lowering supplements.  You would want something like hawthorne berry standardized to vitexin for that.  Grapeseed extract does increase NO though.

 

You ideally want to use ubiquinol instead of CoQ10 (ubiqinone).  The bioavailability is several times higher; further enhanced by shilajit.  If 50mg (equivalent to at least 400mg CoQ10) once a day is too strong for you (i.e. insomina), then I guess CoQ10 would work, just make sure you get an enhanced absorption product such as Q-Gel.

 

If you want to use specifically tumeric instead of standardized curcumin extract, then make sure you use a SuperCritical CO2 extract to get a full spectrum of phytoactives.  If not, then you need to decide if you want curcumin for general anti-inflammatory support via curcuminoids or corssing the blood-brain-barrier with intact free curcumin (useful for getting rid of the Alzheimer plaques and chelating iron).

 

And of course, you want to use natural folate or methylfolate, not synthetic folic acid.

Should I cycle any of these or is this solid for long term use?

Thanks for your input and analysis, it's reassuring. I was thinking about food with carnosine but read contradictory things for and against and just took a stab.

If it hasn't been mentioned, I'd take methyl folate if you haven't been genotyped. Too much can lead to problems, and lower amounts might be problematic in some populations.

 

Unless enteric coated, I would take the CoQ10 and maybe the PQQ away from any of the acids or with alkaline conjugated supplements to improve absorption.

 

Grape seed ext. should be taken every other day, not sure about your dosing, how old are you?
