Minimal Longevity Stack

- - - - -
creatine beta alanine resveratrol pterostilbene quercetine monohydrate coq10


This is my low-key daily longevity stack. Total cost is ~$0.59 per day.


29, M, 5'9, 165lbs. I'm also doing low-carb and weightlifting + occasional running. My budget is max $1.00 per day.

The one other thing I'd like to add is Nicotinamide Riboside, but there's no cheap source for it. I figure it will become available eventually.

I take one serving of each of the below daily, either in water (yuck) or mixed in a shake.
supplement amount (g) price serving size (mg) servings cost/g cost/serving weekly cost yearly cost creatine 1000 $10.00 3000 333 $0.01 $0.03 $0.21 $10.95 coq10 100 $50.00 200 500 $0.50 $0.10 $0.70 $36.50 pterostilbene 10 $40.00 50 200 $4.00 $0.20 $1.40 $73.00 resveratrol 100 $38.00 250 400 $0.38 $0.10 $0.67 $34.68 beta alanine 1000 $22.00 2000 500 $0.02 $0.04 $0.31 $16.06 quercetin 500 $58.00 1000 500 $0.12 $0.12 $0.81 $42.34 total 2710 $218.00 6500 2433 $5.03 $0.59 $4.10 $213.53

I thought about adding ALCAR and Noopept to the stack, but I'm not convinced they have longevity or neuroprotective effects.

Shout out to Powder City for most of the supplements :)

 I'd keep only the pterostilbene, use EMIQ (quercetine, with very high biodisponibility) 1 cap only every 10 to15 d (senolytics), add 10g glycine and maybe 3-5g taurine ed.


It's just me, but for your budget, you'll have to make choices...


Intermittent fasting can also be a good idea and costs nothing (16/8 is the easier way).


If you can keep resveratrol on the list, make sure to get it with whey or fat to improve absorption (coco oil/milk added to a whey shake would be nice)



I've been doing 16/8 for years now so that's good. I've been experimenting with 24-hr fasts, hoping to work up to a 2 days per week schedule.


What are the benefits of glycine and taurine?


I definitely have the resveratrol with fats already, either in the shake or in my food immediately after.


The reason for the budget is to make it feasible to keep taking them for many, many years. The higher the price the less likely I'll keep up with it. 

Cut back on the Beta Alanine, iirc, too much can cause tingling sensations and might not be good for nerves in your skin. Cut it back to 500mg. Too much glycine will make you tired... I think lower doses, like 2g and some ester C and regular C along with the quercetin you're already taking to retain the regular C longer is better than a ton of glycine... Same with taurine I don't see an appreciable difference between 1g and up to 4g.  A nice CaMgZnCu and D3 supplement would do more for you than massive overdosing on any one thing. Synergy equates to better results imo, but it can complicate things. You should get the mineral complex already complexed... you can't measure accurately enough to make the ZnCu part safe unless you're making huge quantities of supplement mix.
