That actually looks like a great supplement for 1 a day. Dave doesn't mention anything specifically regarding zinc (beyond that most people actually supplement and therefore create a copper/zinc imbalance). But he follows Jaminets work. 15mg would be about right in light of Jaminet's recommendations (his rec is 50mg once a week when you get around 15mg from day). So, +/-.
This doesn't make sense in general. That statement is too generalized.
No, that's just my opinion. I doubt you had that good bout just because of the oil. Unless it helped with some sort of deficiency of yours.
I thought it could be down to the Vitamin D in it, and my body doing cart wheels because it doesn't know what this strange substance is /smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> .
great post. but have you found any of daves recomendations on the dosages of b 6 ?
Dave does discuss zinc in his discussion of ZMA in podcast #18. He says that he is a fan of zinc supplementation.
Yah, but he argued otherwise as well. I'm pretty sure supplementation is smart (in the 15-30mg/day range), but most people: don't supplement or eat enough zinc containing food (thus deficient), don't get enough copper (thus creating a Cu/Zn imbalance) or do it at 50mg+/d (which seems excessive unless deficient).
Regarding any unmentioned supplements, I think it's safe to refer to Jaminet's work - http://perfecthealth...ed-supplements/
Can you clarify how much K2 you are supposed to take. If I buy Life Extension's K2, should I take 1 or 2 pills? Their one pill has 1,200 mcg of K2 with 200mcg of MK-7 while Dave recommends 2000 mcg with 100 mcg of Mk-7. Wondering if I take 2 pills, will I get an overdose of MK-7?
It is about 15:1 polyunsaturated.
Suntoucher: Where did you get that LifeExtension was a good source of vit D3? Tried to google it.
LifeExtension D3 contains safflower oil, safflower oil is not considered bp right?
Probably some show notes link. I personally would consider that amount insignificant (probably in the <100 mg range). And you DO need to get some Omega 6 in your diet. It's an essential fatty acid after all. So if you are clean otherwise, it's beyond insignificant. Although, regardless of which oil based D3 you buy... it might come w/ oxidized fats since PUFAs easily oxidize... /smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />/>
On the same note - you can also find D3 as dry pills and such. The conclusion of some report (I believe it was from Vit D council) was that they boost serum levels regardless. Even D2 does (but much much less efficiently).
I believe the rapid fat loss protocol page on the blog links directly to the LifeExtension D3 on Amazon.
Thanks for the great work Suntoucher. I have been switching over to BP from Atkins and am starting to feel a -lot- better. I am still pretty new to supplement usage, I used this as a guide to build a starter stack for me and was hoping a few people with more knowlege could give me any pointers. What it currently looks like is:
Magnesium->Citrate->400 mg->Daily->Before bed
K2->MK-4 & MK-7->2000 mg, 100 mcg from MK-7->Daily->Morning
C->Ascorbic acid crystals->1000 mcg->Daily->Morning/Before bed
Potassium->Citrate->99 mg->Daily->Before bed
Iodine->Kelp Powder->660 mg->Daily->Before bed
A->From fish oil->10k IU->Daily->Lunch
Selenium->Complex->200 mg->Daily->Before bed
Copper->-->2 mg->Every other day->Morning
DHA/EPA->Krill oil->500 mg->Daily->Lunch
B12->Methylcobalamin->1000 mcg->Daily->Before bed
Folinic Acid->-->800 mg->Daily->Before bed
Glutathione->L-Glutamine->1000 mg->Daily->Morning/Before bed
Additionally, I am tracking all this information in a excel doc, along with the information I have found about it. I am looking into writing a web app to put all these supplements (and allowing users to add new ones) and create their own stack. The idea is to add meta data for each supplement and show interactions, best practices, ect in a simple UI. If anyone would like to help on the project send me a PM.
A few months back I pm'ed a guy on here, who said he was having similar problems with all the fats ie nausea and dull aches in the chest, also sometimes aches in lower left side of my back, I never got a response. So now all the Christmas crap is out of the way am really looking to ramp up my supplements, but I think the first thing I need to get sorted out is those fat enzymes that guy was taking about, could someone recommend some supplements and a brand?.
Zinc + Copper. 1x/day, $3/mo. Choose the other copper if you don't want to take zinc.
I would love to welcome you on my new page: www.soul-smoothies.com
For days I am trying to finally conclude my list so that I can order.
Some information is not correct. 15 mg zinc a day? that is not enough.
Does anyone have up-to-date list for iherb?
How important do you guys think are supplements like:
Life Extension, Se-Methyl-Selenocysteine, 200 mcg, 100 Capsules (LEX-56710)
Now Foods, Potassium Citrate, 99 mg, 180 Capsules (NOW-01448)
Source Naturals, MegaFolinic, 800 mcg, 120 Tablets (SNS-02028)
Solgar, Sublingual Methylcobalamin, 5000 mcg, 60 Nuggets (SOL-01959)
Life Extension, Vitamin K with Sea-Iodine, 60 Capsules (LEX-15726)
Doctor's Best, Best Serrapeptase, 90 Veggie Caps (DRB-00149)
Neocell, Fish Collagen + HA, Collagen Support Complex, 120 Capsules (NEL-12900)
You can get iodine from iodized salt, berries and seaweed. Vitamin K is in a lot of vegetables. Potassium is abundant in fruits.
I don't have experience with systemic enzymes like Serrapeptase, but they could possibly help lower inflammation. If you are on any blood thinners you should not use it though.
Methylcobalamin is good, many people have an undiagnosed deficiency.
Quote: Se-Methylselenocysteine is an organic selenium compound found naturally in some plants such as garlic, onions, broccoli and wild leeks grown in high selenium soil. It provides the essential trace element selenium which can be incorporated as selenocysteine into the active sites of selenoproteins, such as the antioxidant glutathione peroxidase. This formulation provides a bio-active form of selenium in a convenient, two-piece, vegetarian capsule.*
You don't need this, eat more vegetables from the allium and cruciferous families. Selenium is also abundant in brazil nuts. You only need a small amount of selenium.
I would also ditch the fish collagen and megafolinic.
Is a surplus of these supps (due to additional good nutrition which I have) possible?
you might be overdosing on potassium
