A few things:

 

1. Is the ALA you are taking actually Na-R-ALA ? If not, do a quick forum search on the difference.

 

2. There has been some discussion about Benfotiamine in the past and my opinion the studies and associated reasoning has tilted it, for me personally, towards the slightly negative in regards to risk/benefit ratio. I just recently took it out of my stack as a result. Again, some interesting discussion on the supp if you do a quick forum search.

 

3. I think the fish oil is way over kill. As with the others, some interesting discussion has gone on in this forum on the subject.

 

4. I wouldn't take D2 period. You should be taking D3 instead.

 

5. At 25 years of age, the ALCAR may be more wasted money than anything else. I believe that was the general consensus here based on past conversation, studies, and conjecture. I would do a forum search as read that for yourself and draw your own conclusion and/or failing that, maybe necro one of the threads and ask.

 

6. Regarding the carnosine, I believe a cheaper and better way to raise your Carnosine is by taking Beta-Alanine. My understanding is that the Carnosine gets broken down into BA anyways before being converted back into Carnosine, unless you overload the process.... which becomes cost prohibitive given how expensive the supp is.

 

7. At 25 I would pay attention the the C60EVOO conversations and studies. I am not going to tell you that you 'should' be taking it at your age, but it is something to consider as you get older and more research is completed on it.

Thank you. 

 

I have researched R-ALA vs ALA and I am not convinced there is any real difference.

 

I understand your concern with benfotiamine and I do not disagree with you. 

 

I never said I am taking D2, I said I am taking 2000IU of Vitamin D (but yes it is D-3).

 

Do you have any links to a comprehensive analysis of how c60 works? To this day I am confused on c60

Sorry about that, I misread.

Personally I wouldn't add DMAE to a long-term stack.

 

See here:

I agree with some of the reasoning in this thread. Seems to risky in the long run...

I have stopped DMAE. Just not enough quality evidence to keep using it.
