u/traintrue · 4 pointsr/ketogains

alright here goes my exhaustive list of stuff that goes into my preworkout! i love to research the stuff that works, and then experiment to see how effectively they work for me, especially on keto.

  1. 1 scoop of pre jym from - just because i don't want to add all those ingredients (good compared to most) on my own and it tastes pretty good (raspberry lemonade). it does, however, have 4g carbs per scoop -

  2. 1/2 scoop of optimum nutrition hydrowhey protein powder (about 15g protein) - fast digesting preworkout protein seems more logical than just bcaas. keeps me satiated during my workout and seems to boost recovery times because i have the full gamut of proper amino acids in my bloodstream as exercise-induced insulin rises. turbo chocolate and chocolate peanut butter are my favorites. vanilla surprisingly sucks and gets very foamy -

  3. 1 tsp curcumin powder from bulk supplements - expensive but 1kg lasts a long time - go to to see the dozens of benefits it has across the board. i use this to help alleviate my disc issues, but it feels great for workouts because it reduces inflammation everywhere, especially joints. you can get pills instead, but they're not as cost effective and i like to blend it into my shakes. MAKE SURE YOU PAIR IT WITH BIOPERINE (already in pre jym but super cheap anyway) OR GET THE BIO AVAILABLE TYPES. otherwise, only your gut will get the benefits -

  4. 1 digestive enzyme pill - research has shown that such enzymes not only help with what you'd expect, digestion, but also boost muscle synthesis, immune system, reduce soreness, etc. -

  5. 1 tbsp extra citrulline malate - because 1 scoop of pre-jym doesn't have the clinical dose of around 8g. research has shown that it reduces soreness and speeds up muscle repair. i believe it helps performance as well -

  6. EDIT: 1/2 tsp (not 2 tsp) extra beta alanine - because 1 scoop of pre-jym doesn't have enough. this stuff kinda acts like creatine, boosting the number of reps you can do. especially helpful on my high rep/speed days. great for crossfit types of workouts if you're into those. i like the tingly feeling as well -

  7. 1/2 tsp potassium citrate - i take electrolytes before and during my workouts -

  8. 1/16 tsp magnesium glycinate - one of the most bioavailable forms of mg and doesn't mess up your digestion -

  9. 1/2 tsp calcium citrate - Ca and Mg go well together in the body. also, multivitamins rarely hit the RDA for calcium -

  10. 1/2 tsp pink salt - sodium! need lots of it because i sweat a lot -

  11. 1/4 tsp vitamin c - i take a lot of vit C to help with disc healing. collagen synthesis requires vit C. of course, great anti-oxidant, great for skin, etc. -

  12. 1/2 tsp ALCAR - i supplement this mostly for the nootropic effect (boosts the brain and concentration), but it supposedly helps with fat breakdown and energy a little bit. i feel razor sharp concentrated during my workouts with this. also, it's just plain old good for the brain. -

  13. 200 mg L-theanine - smooths out the jittery feeling from caffeine to provide more stable energy. also good before bed to get higher quality of sleep. -

  14. 100mg pill RALA - good for the nervous system and energy -

  15. 200mg coq10 - good for the heart, boosts energy a bit -

  16. 320mg saw palmetto extract pill - good for men's prostate health, keeps good testosterone high (instead of DHT), and for me, prevents the hairloss that creatine (i think) has induced. not just bs bro science, go to for research. i personally have regrown a lot of hair by taking 2-3 three of these a day for the last three months! -

  17. 1 tbsp psyllium husk powder - keeps my digestion on track, prevents the indigestion i tend to get from MCT oil -

  18. 10g MCT oil - i either use brain octane or miCkey T Eight because they are pure C-8 caprylic acid instead of blends of the crappier acids. definitely boosts energy during long workouts. careful, it tends to mess with your stomach if you don't ease into it. if you're good with coconut oil, you're probably good with this. -

  19. 100mg hyaluronic acid - helps with joints and skin. i have noticed my knee and elbow pain going away while taking this. skin complexion also improved. -

    currently experimenting with:

  20. clear muscle - i usually supplement HMB, but this is the newer liquid variant. its pricey, and i haven't noticed anything bad about it, but it's hard to say if it's working better than the much cheaper powdered HMB. studies are probably very biased, so i can't really trust them -

  21. phospha muscle - phosphatidic acid has shown some promise in studies, but again, probably biased research. also cannot tell yet, but i have seen some decent strength gains pairing this with clear muscle. we'll see! -

    phew! making this list made me realize how much time and effort i put into the trial and error of my preworkout. of course, i supplement a lot of this stuff with my other meals as well. as you can see, i'm very big on supplements, biohacking, and nootropics. i read up a lot on research in my spare time.
u/herman_gill · 2 pointsr/Fitness

Well, diet is infinitely more important: Green tea is good, fish like salmon everyday is fantastic (good source of protein and omega 3... don't take in conjunction with the green tea); Broccoli/Spinach are great (and also have anti-estrogenic effects to they might prevent moobs to a degree). Shoot for 1-5g of Omega 3 DHA+EPA a day (2-10 ounces of salmon, or 3-15 fish oil capsules) daily. Here's some stuff for omega 3. Although, fish>fish oil.


In terms of supplements, some that while not having a direct effect on weight loss are great for improving mood/energy/health:

ALCAR (helps you more effectively burn carbs/fat, also a nice sem-stimulant): @1.4g/day a full year's supply is $18

Choline Citrate (in conjunction with caffeine and alcar helped reduced fat mass in rats, has a crap load of health benefits): @1.4g/day a full year's supply is $12.

Coenzyme Q10 (helps give you energy, has a crap load of health benefits and is good for the heart, which might be useful when you're taking Yohimbine, it's fat soluble so you're best off taking it with fatty meals or fish oil): A full year's supply @100mg/day is $32 (which is the cheapest I've found it in pill form).

Vitamin D (probably one of the most important supplements anyone can take, great for the heart; cancer prevention; immunity against infection; autoimmune problems like diabetes, asthma, and allergies; and even helps boost testosterone if you're deficient in it): A full year's supply if you take 2000IU/d during summer and 4000IU/d the rest of the year (or any day when it's not super sunny outside and you're not actually outside) is $10.


If you'd like you can also use my coupon code for $5 off at iherb (which should cover the cost of shipping): JIT328 (I'm going to disclose though that I get a 5% commission from sales though).

Money saved testing=money for sadness treats!

Yes ma’am I do. I actually take the SmartyPants Women’s Complete gummy because it comes with 100mg of Ubiqunol (the active form of CoQ10). This way I just supplement the extra methylfolate rather than CoQ10 on top of a prenatal! There are high doses of CoQ10 but not all of the supplements are created equally. Mr. Spooky is a snob and takes this one because supposedly they’re superior absorption so they’re just as good as some of the higher dose CoQ10s. I’m a big believer in them being good for egg and sperm quality but given that my cycles aren’t crazy long because I take too long to ovulate and my LP is pretty normal I feel comfortable sticking to 100mg for now. The highest I’ve ever seen in a pill was 300-400mg!

ETA: most of the recommendations for 600mg I’ve seen is for IVF with egg retrieval because you’re trying to collect multiple mature eggs in one cycle (I’ve seen ladies on here having over 2 dozen collected) whereas we only need to produce one mature egg per cycle.

u/NotAnAlienObserver · 2 pointsr/TryingForABaby

I haven't been able to find much research for human women taking CoQ10 to improve fertility --there's some really good studies on mice, though.

But there's mounting evidence that CoQ10 supplementation improves all kinds of fertility factors in men, especially if they're older or have sperm quality issues.

So I take 400 mg and my boyfriend takes 200 mg daily [of this brand.](Qunol Mega Ubiquinol CoQ10 100mg, Superior Absorption, Patented Water and Fat Soluble Natural Supplement Form of Coenzyme Q10, Antioxidant for Heart Health, 240 Count Softgels

It's also supposed to support good heart health, which seems to be why most people taking CoQ10 do so.

‘It Starts With The Egg’ should be mandatory reading for all women TTC. Highly recommend! It discusses CoQ10 in depth. Per the book, I ordered this brand from Amazon which has show success in human clinical trials:

u/whenwillthewaitend · 2 pointsr/TryingForABaby

There is an entire chapter devoted to CoQ10 in the book It Starts with the Egg. I'm not typing out an entire chapter and honestly I'm too lazy to take pictures of every page and upload to imgur. I will however give you a brief TL;DR.

The TL;DR looks something like this: CoQ10 is found in every cell in the body and plays a role in making energy in the body as well as recyclying vitamin E, an antioxidant. There is a theory that part of why older eggs are lower quality is because of declines in the function of the mitochondria in the egg. The egg doesn't have enough energy to properly during key points in cell replication and it leads to some errors. CoQ10 is thought to help give the mitochondria the boost they need to provide enough energy for proper division/replication thereby reducing the number of errors.

Here is a quote from the book:

&gt;Research has shown that human embryos with poorly functioning mitochondria are more likely to have disrupted chromosomal processing machinery and chaotic chromosome distribution. Other research shows that if you intentionally damage mitochondria in mouse eggs, the ATP level goes down, and the machinery that separates chromosomes disassembles and malfunctions. As discused earlier in the chapter, errors in the number of chromosome copies are the single greatest cause of failure of embryos to survive the first week, implantation failures, and early pregnancy loss.

The book also says that:

&gt;Based on all the scientific knowledge about the importance of fully functioning mitochondria to egg and embryo quality, it stands to reason that anything we can do to boost mitochondrial function and help eggs produce more energy will improve egg quality and embryo viability. Research suggests that CoQ10 does just that.

The book also recommends supplementing CoQ10 in the form ubiquinol not ubiquinone. And the recommend dosage is between 100-300mg per day, taken with food for increased absorption.

I really like the book as it seems to more or less just be a compilation of the recent research (as of when the book was published in 2014) that is presented in an easier to read/understand format. There are 45 citations in the CoQ10 chapter alone. Granted some of that is citing basic information on what CoQ10 is, it's role in the body and such. Not all of those citations are related to fertility. But still.

ETA: I don't know if you're a member of a warehouse club like Sam's or Costco but I know that CoQ10 is way cheaper at Costco than I've found it pretty much anywhere else. I won't say it was cheap still though. It was still around $30 for 90 200mg capsules. This is about the cheapest I've found on Amazon.

Qunol 200mg Ubiquinol, Powerful Antioxidant for Heart and Vascular Health, Essential for energy production, Natural Supplement Active Form of CoQ10, 60 Count

u/blacktieaffair · 14 pointsr/scacjdiscussion

I've been recommended CoQ10 as a migraine treatment. It is apparently one of the few supplements with a proven track record to reduce migraines. Link to study

It would be very cool if it gives me smooth skin. I don't really have wrinkles yet, so it would be neat if they just don't show up now, and I have 50% fewer migraines to boot!

Edit: I was already eyeing this earlier today after another migraine bout, and this thread tipped me over to purchasing it lol. I am trying this brand.

u/JessieBooBoo · 1 pointr/infertility

I take this one from amazon. I don't remember why now, I think from my research it had good reviews and was one of the less expensive ones. No side effects. I take 600mg (3 pills broken up into 2 in the morning and 1 at night), hubs takes 200mg. I agree with u/sciencejoy that you might not need it, but it's pretty universally recommended and it can't hurt (except the bank account because it's not cheap).

u/mcxme · 3 pointsr/Supplements

change 3. with (more EPA/DHA per pill)

Also not sure of your age, but 100mg of ubiquinol could be a good addition;qid=1570580045&amp;sr=8-1


not sure if you need both 1. and 4. Probably better to just stick with 1.

u/tomdebevoise · 1 pointr/Nootropics

Can not live without my Ubiquinol! This is the one supplement I notice in a big way when I do not take it. There are many studies that show the benefits of this. As a note when men and women have fertility issues they put them on high doses of CoQ 10.

as a warning, I believe the benefits, like fish oil, are does dependent

A bit expensive but worth is.

First time I've heard of this, I'll do some research.

Currently using this. Never heard of liposomal, but I'll research the difference.

&gt; I think the chicken broth might be a waste.

Chicken broth is full of electrolytes and trace minerals.

&gt; Whenever I'm having a blue kind of day, chugging a diet pepsi is a go-to for me, so I wouldn't shy away from caffeine if you're just having a low-energy day for no reason that you can figure out and then treat it using something healthier. Sometimes you just stayed up a little too late or something.

Forgot to mention this, but drink a glass of green tea on most work days.

&gt; You're probably already doing it, but remember to use a blue light filter on your computer/tablet/phone at night.

Honestly should, but the color can interfere with some of the stuff on at night.

&gt; If you have trouble sleeping, a sleeping mask can do wonders for you.

Honestly a good idea too.

&gt; Perhaps look into the mushroom supplements and see if there's anything you want there.

&gt; I was extremely skeptical of mushroom supplements until I started taking Lion's Mane.

I've also been skeptical of Lion's Mane and have seen conflicting things about it. What effects have you noticed from it?


u/KlimRous · 2 pointsr/migraine

What dose of nortriptyline? I started out on 30mg/day and it did nothing. So my neuro upped it to 50mg/day and it worked like a champ. What's also helped is taking Magnesium Oxide and CoQ10.

u/dazed4nd · 8 pointsr/Nootropics

What you are most likely noticing is the effect it has on mitochondria. These kind of compounds that stimulate the mitochondria should be present in everyone's stack as a baseline before adding in more nootropics.

Can find ones that are not BioPQQ. That is the one I actually got. Combined it with another deal that brought it down to like 16$, which was a crazy good deal.

If you would want to deal with powder, IRC.BIO actually added PQQ powder recently:

    There's not a snowballs chance in hell Asprey's bullshit is going to beat that, and for double the price. It's depressing people can't do their own research to find this stuff out. It literally took me like 20 minutes to find all that.
