Hi everyone,

 

A quick intro: I am interested in longevity and optimizing human performance. Because of my slightly addictive/over-indulgent personality, I am constantly experimenting with different supplements, performance enhancers and nootropics. I won't get into details, but the bottom-line is that I have not been clean of any supplements/nootropics for the past 5 years, and at times I worry if all these nootropics/supplements will be harmful to my health. I would like opinions and facts from the longecity community to give me some ideas to bounce around in regards to whether or not I am optimizing human performance and lengthening my lifespan, or if my current lifestyle will burn me out. Any feedback is greatly appreciated :) 

 

Career: Business-to-business sales, slightly stressful and sitting approximately 5 hours a day in front of a computer

Exercise: 4 days a week of weights and/or cardio. 4 days a week of light stretching and mobility

Diet: High protein and high fat, with a lot of vegetables and fruits for carbohydrates. Very minimal grain or starches

Sleep: Approximately 7-8 hours a night

 

Here is where my concerns begin. I currently have and take the following supplements/nootropics on the following schedule:

 

Monday:

  • 2 cups of green tea (75mg caffeine each)

  • 7mg Melatonin

What make you think your low dose and very spread out supplementation would be unsafe? Any new and unwanted symptoms?
 

 

400mg Astaxanthin 2.5% Beadlets

 

Does that mean 400 mcg Astaxanthin, or the 2.5% (10mg) of it?
