    There is a new website that measures the potency and effectiveness of vitamins. Thorne was beat by a few other brands. Also- should our supplements be organic?

    Organic supplements would be a misnomer. What is that site for that measurement?

    Definitely overkill. How do you know what's working in all this big list?

    On one hand, it seems like a lot. On the other hand, it would basically boil down to a scoop of a plant-rich powder fortified with bio-available minerals and vitamins with a once weekly boost of other minerals / vitamins / plants and some amino acids around exercise. Perhaps cycling those different polyphenols or doing a weekly vs daily stack would itself increase the likelihood of a beneficial response. Eg., the effect of daily coffee consumption is different than intermittent coffee consumption, and many prefer the stack of theanine+coffee to either one in isolation -- what really works well for me is intermittent coffee + theanine + rhodiola, but I find daily rhodiola too much and intermittent coffee too limiting.

    Perhaps with some careful note taking and regular labs I could get a feel for if one stack seemed to work better than others. On the recent gundry interview, I think that heart surgeon mentioned taking something like 100+ different supplements a day.

    Although tbh, I have sort of gone in the other direction with it. My current stack is coffee in the morning in place of breakfast (black; no added butter), morning exercise, coffee in the afternoon, occasionally some broth or essential amino acids with potassium + salt, then dinner with B12, Folate, Magnesium, K2, D3, and Iodine. It would be nice to try to tack on additional cardiovascular support or some sort of nootropic / productivity booster, but this is getting the job done. Ketones are running pretty high as a consequence which does make me wonder about liver-GSH levels, oxidative stress, and methylglyoxal production / thyroid health / insulin sensitivity -- right now, I'm doing around 40-75g of net carbs at dinner, but the timing of the meal has me up around 2.5mmol/L of BHB before I eat it.

    That's the one I use.
    & I 'balance' with Vitamin D3.

    In winter I take 10,000A every other day & 4000D3 daily.
    In summer I take 10,000A twice per week & 2000D3 daily.
    I take the D3 in the mornings & the Vit A later in the day, I read somewhere best to take apart, as they may compete.

  • What's the current best option for Vitamin K since the product Dave recommended ran out on iherb?
    Is there a more inexpensive option regarding the B complex Dave recommends?

  • Hi everyone !

    I did get insomnia trouble (sleeping only 6 hours). I have found a solution : 40 mg of PQQ, and vitamin B-50 complex. This stack in the morning make me sleep way longer (7 hours).

    I was wondering what else could I possibly add to this stack ? I have a good level of vit D btw :)

  • How good is the jarrow b-right complex? Is it an excellent alternative to the more expensive Thorne product recommended by Dave?

    I think it's a fine choice.

  • Anyone noticed taking eye armor while bulletproof fasting affecting Ketosis? I am probably going to move it to later in the day because there may be a tiny amount of sugar in it... I just wanted to have to protection first thing since I use a computer all morning.

    @cortext have you seen Polyphenomenal 2.0? Its got a lot of the polyphenols that you've been taking in one capsule so you don't have to cap a punch of powders yourself...

    There are a ton of other ingredients you can add for insomnia. Glad the PQQ and vitamin B-50 complex work for you. I'm a huge fan of PQQ because of the mitochondrial support it (and others) provide. Read about that: https://oyasin.io/mitochondria-supplement/

    But aside from the basic improvements to mitochondrial support, I'm thinking you could try Kava, lemon balm (GABA transaminase inhibitor), or valerian root. These are the safest of the group, but some people obviously find a lot of value in phenibut. I would not suggest this if you can get by without it.
