this is a big deal. hopefully someone explained to supplement b12 and iodine (good source of iodine is spirulina). if he plays as well or better than he did prior, it could make a significant difference for cultural perception.


Edit: a tablespoon of spirulina will only get you about 30% of the RDA

from their website:

> Q: Does Hawaiian Spirulina contain iodine?

A: The small amount of spirulina consumed daily plus the fact that iodine occurs in only trace quantities makes the spirulina’s iodine most likely no problem for people with hypothyroidism. A daily serving of 3 grams (which is roughly equal to one teaspoon) of spirulina provides approximately 15mcg (micrograms) of iodine which is ten percent of the US recommended daily intake for iodine (150mcg)

You would need another source as well. I put dulse flakes in my smoothie as well, which covers it, but I will be clear about this in the future.

No link on these since I came up with them myself. I can probably make an album this weekend though if there is interest. I'll link the products I use below. As far as how I make them, I just use a blender. I put the liquids (milk and oil) in first, then the frozen berries followed by all the powders, and finally the spinach. I blend it until everything is homogeneous then I add in the oats and pulse a few times just to combine them without pulverizing them. This is not a smooth shake like you might get from a smoothy place. There are bits of of spinach (although quite tiny) and the seeds from the berries. The oats are mostly whole still. I prefer it like that and feel that it helps prevent any possible stomach issues since there is some whole food for your stomach to work on instead of pure liquid. You could always blend it longer to get a smoother texture, but it will start to warm up since there is no ice.

  • Protien Powder (I get the vanilla)

  • Spinach

  • Frozen Berries

  • Flax Seed Oil

  • Super Greens phyto nutrient blend

  • Oats

  • 2% Milk

    I also add the following for my exercise supplements

  • Creatine

  • BCAA blend

  • Arginine

    I will also sometimes put in a scoop of fiber if I think about it (I LOVE MYOFiber, but any fiber is good). You can also sub out peanut butter for the flax oil. It's still healthy fats, but you miss out on a lot of the benefits of high lignan flax, particularly the Omegas. You can also tailor it a bit to your needs. If you want a carb heavy version, swap the milk for OJ. Want less calories? Swap the milk for water and cut the oil in half. Prefer chocolate? Change the whey flavor and use a banana instead of the berries. etc. etc.
u/[deleted] · 13 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Ok! Well I am a 24 yr old female with combination skin. I am normal on my cheeks but oily in my T zone. I've dealt with severe cystic acne my entire life but after seeing a dermatologist and getting chemical peels and changing my diet, it went down drastically. Now I am just left with hormonal acne on my chin and some discoloration on my skin. So here is my brand new routine I started a week ago! Many of these products have made people break out but it's just about finding what's right for you :)


Use [low ph Cleanser] (

[Toner] (

[vitamin C serum] (

[Moisturize] (

[sunscreen] (


Oil cleanse with [this] (

same cleanser

same toner

A [random sheet mask] (

same vitamin C serum (under eyes only)

[collagen cream] (

[overnight moisturizer] (

I've also been taking [primrose oil supplements] ( but it's only been a week and I'm not sure if it's doing anything yet. I bought some other stuff too but since this worked for me, I am sticking with it and might change it up next week and add more things in.

u/Gundamnitpete · 12 pointsr/pcgaming

turn only using your real body, turn the vignette to maximum, set the player speed to lowest, and use a bow.

That should get you moving around just fine. Then dial the vignette down and the movement speed up slowly over time. Give your body time to adjust.

Also Mythbusters has shown ginger pills to be VERY effective at stopping motion sickness. Just take a couple, about 30-45 minutes before you plan to start playing.

u/drewtangclan · 10 pointsr/TopsAndBottoms

haven't tried Pure For Men, but regular whole husk psyllium fiber works much better than metamucil- I recommend this brand.

Pro tip: My favorite way to take it is to mix it in with coconut or coconut cream pie flavored yogurt. the texture of the fiber grains just feels like shredded coconut flakes.

u/missprecocious · 9 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

They are super fantastic. I read up on different nutrients, so I could tailor them to my needs. I hate vegetables unless they are slathered in butter and garlic, so to get the leafy green nutrition I have to have, I prefer raw wheatgrass powder and raw spirulina. I prefer raw because the nutrients have not been cooked off, like if you steam veggies. More potent, like juicing, but retains more fiber, unlike juicing.

I combine all my powders into a big mason jar about once a month or so, and each morning I put a heaping spoonful in a glass of cherry juice (cherry juice aids in meletonin production: I have trouble sleeping sometimes due to work stress). It's very cost-effective to do it myself, rather than buying something off the shelf that may not address all my health concerns.

Here are some links for my personal cocktail:

Raw Wheatgrass Powder - High in Vitamin K (eyesight aid), a laundry list of nutrients... & get yo'self REGULAR!

Raw Spirulina - Protein-rich (great for vegetarians and vegans!), Lowers blood pressure & evens cholesterol levels

Raw Maca Root Powder - High in vitamins, great for sexual health & women's hormonal support. It has helped with my depression symptoms (as does super concentrated doses of Niacin, vitamin B-3).

Raw Camu Camu Powder - A great source of vitamin C.

Raw Chaste Berry Powder - Amazing for ladies' health support. I started mixing this in and my period cramps have vanished, and my period lasts three days at most. Also evened my cycle out.

u/MetricT · 8 pointsr/nashville

Sorry to hear that. I have a good friend with serious depression, so I know how hard that can be. I *don't* have serious depression, but every once in a while I do get "down". The thing that helps me the most is lion's mane mushroom extract. Not a cure-all, but takes the edge off and makes things that would normally bother you, not bother you. Legal and reasonably cheap ($30) [on Amazon](

The other thing that helps me is running. When The Vandy Nurse broke up with me, I started running 10 miles a day a couple days a week. It's impossible to be depressed when you're exhausted and can't move without something hurting. My body was pumping out endorphins by the gallon, and it felt rather euphoric. Do some exercise, and I don't mean "take a hike", but something that's at the physical limit of what you can do. Run 10 miles, or try a few hours of P90X or Insanity. You'll feel a ton better.

The bleeding edge of depression research is ketamine, transcranial magnetic stimulation, and psilocybin (magic mushrooms). All three seem to have efficacy against treatment-resistant depression. Ironically, the easiest to acquire and possibly the most productive is also the most illegal. If you spend a few minutes searching on "shrooms", you'll figure out how to acquire all the things you need legally. I have zero experience taking psilocybin or any other tryptamine analogues, but I helped aforementioned friend grow some to treat their depression. When they work, they *work*. Like a total mental reset button.

As Tennessee can't even let dying cancer patients use weed to treat their pain because "Jeebus", legal psilocybin is probably 20 years out. I've never heard of police raiding a house for growing personal-use amounts of shrooms, but you are taking some risk by doing so.

Ketamine works for some, not others. For some people it's absolutely magic. For my friend, it worked a week at a time, which was better than nothing. It can have serious side-effects with long-term use, including bladder toxicity, but if it works, it may be worth it. Scientists have already determine that it isn't ketamine itself which does it, but one of its metabolites (2R,6R)-HNK (hydroxynorketamine) which does it. The metabolite may be safer than ketamine itself, and once scientists understand its method of action, they can likely design a drug with the same effect but much safer.

TMS does work, but from what I've read takes multiple sessions, isn't cheap, and is only available at a small number of centers around the country. Vanderbilt apparently has one, which is good, but you'll likely need insurance to cover it.

Hope it helps. What you're going through sucks donkey balls, but it isn't your fault. Don't blame yourself. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other. That mantra has helped me get through the past few months. Don't think, just do.

u/mikeferg007 · 7 pointsr/fitmeals

This is the stuff I buy. I have tried 4 or so different varieties and I like it the best. Nutritional info available on page.

u/Stridyr · 6 pointsr/virtualreality

> Dramamine

Dear God! You poor thing! Omg, I hate that stuff!

Try some candied ginger! For most of us, it removes the nausea! Yes, even for us old folk! If you can't handle the taste of ginger, then get some caplets. They take longer to take effect, tho(I get 3-4 hours per caplet). The candied ginger works in minutes (3-4 pieces or around 15grams). It can be broken, but I do a lot of VR that I couldn't do without it! Including smooth movement!

I wish I had known about ginger in my sailing days! I will NEVER touch that Dramamine crap again!!!!!!!!!!

My stomach goes out to ya! Bleh...

u/beyond_delights · 6 pointsr/SexToys

Psyllium Husk would definitely help with some of the mess. I recommend getting this taking a table spoon every night and day with 8 ounces of cold water or juice. It'll start working in a day or two. The fibers push out a lot of stuff left behind. You don't have to do it every day either, maybe a week or a few days leading up to anal sex. It also comes in capsule form.

u/skincareaddict92 · 6 pointsr/abdiscussion

I take evening primrose capsules. [These] ( to be more specific. I am prone to cystic hormonal acne on my chin. I used to have cystic acne all over my face and then switched to a keto diet which cleared most of it up and then I was just left with those annoying pimples on my chin during my period. I switched to asian skincare products and the evening primrose capsules and if I get any acne's one or two small pimples rather than 6-8 huge ones. I also don't suffer from dry skin anymore and my hair and nails are sooo strong.

u/mmm_chocolate · 5 pointsr/Nootropics has Bacopa Monnieri capsules for ~$18

And if you go to the manufacturer's website (Nutrigold) they also operate under GMP-approved and FDA registered facilities:

u/Brock_Lobstweiler · 5 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

This has been me for a few years. I thought I was still struggling with acne prone skin that i thought I conquered in 2009. I finally figured out that it was hormonal acne, especially because I wasn't getting acne anywhere else on my face at all (except tiny little whiteheads on my nose that pop up overnight if i don't clean my face properly).

I can't find the thread, but somewhere here I read about evening primrose oil for hormonal acne. I'm not on any birth control and was unwilling to take spiro just for a couple deep zits a month. Figured what the heck, I'm not taking any other supplements so I might as well try.

And holy cow it has WORKED. I started right after my period in March and my April cycle was nearly clear, with a couple small spots. I've been slacking on skincare in May, so this month I had some red spots, but nothing deep. No pustules, nothing painful, nothing errupted.

I'm taking these:

Just one per day because they're 1300 mg each. As with any kind of medicine or supplement, check for interactions with any meds you're taking. If you're on BC or another hormone influencer, check with your doctor first.

u/TheSlothRider · 5 pointsr/kratom

Piperine, found in simple black pepper, increases absorbion of curcumin by 2000%

I like it, its good for inflammation and hsd other long term promising health benefits.

I take it every day. Here's the one I get: Turmeric Curcumin with Bioperine 1500mg

u/djwonderful · 5 pointsr/MushroomGrowers

First, the bags.

I'm currently getting mine from

  1. Type 14A

    Lions mane LOVES wood. Wood is a must for lions mane. I use hardwood fuel pellets and sawdust from the a local mill. I supplement with 20% wheat bran (only bran I can get from local tractor supply). And gypsum of course.

    You must sterilize the bags, this is were a BIG pressure cooker comes in handy.

    Lions mane wants to fruit before it fully colonizes, so be sure to use a lot of spawn to the bags and shake it up.

    Oh, you are going to need a fruiting chamber if you don't have one already.

    PM me your address and I will send a few over to you.

    For Gourmet, everything is kept on cultures. If you are going to get into this to constantly grow, certainly need a pressure cooker and use the cup of agar tek, or peti dishes with agar.

    ~$25 for a 5 pound bag of spawn is not unreasonable though.

    The culture we have is not very "seafood" I have had them in the past when it tastes much more like crab or lobster. I find it to have a subtle taste. Goes great when you make it into something. I can't imagine just eating it like an apple.

    Finally, maybe you want to try it out before you go whole hog with your new hobby:
u/SlowExplosions · 5 pointsr/Nootropics

Lion's mane mushroom extract works well for focus, anxiety, mood. It keeps you calm and lasts all day long too. Just make sure you buy from a seller that utilizes the fruiting body rather than just the mycelium.

Edit: This is a good one.

u/pha3dra · 4 pointsr/portugal

Compra vegetais em pó e utiliza, por exemplo, como caldo para o arroz. O importante dos vegetais são micronutrientes que não se obtém na carne. Fica um arroz vitaminado e saboroso sem qualquer indício de vegetais :)

u/Neoncoral · 4 pointsr/xxfitness

I add Amazing Grass to all of my protein shakes (this is my preferred vegan protein) for a "nutrient boost". It's pretty economical, too!

u/arrialexa · 4 pointsr/Nootropics
u/poisonousautumn · 4 pointsr/kratom

Another safe option here. Also, the stuff is pretty good for you too I mix it with my kratom shakes.

u/sendittttttt · 4 pointsr/herbalism

This brand has made a HUGE positive impact on my day to day life. It works. I have ordered it for over a year and quality is consistent. This is not an ad.

KSM-66 Ashwagandha 600mg - Organic Root Extract - High Potency 5% Withanolides - Health Benefits Include Reduced Stress and Anxiety, Increased Energy and Focus (90 Vegetarian Capsules)

u/shortskirtlongjacket · 3 pointsr/birthcontrol

Yeah, I could never get a regular bedtime habit down for mine so I take them in the morning, which makes the nausea way worse. What I do is just pop a ginger pill at the same time - bingo - no nausea!

I'm probably biased because I have vertigo and get motion sickness and use the ginger for those all the time and think it's great. But, it's safe (all it is, is the same powdered ginger you buy in the spice aisle, but in a little capsule thingy) and even if it's a placebo effect at this point it's only a few bucks for a big bottle so I figure what the heck.

u/milk-jug · 3 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

Sure thing!

There's no need to mess around with different types of pills and so on, I just bought a few bottles of these Amazon Link without referral, and pop 2-3 pills (3 for FPSs, 2 for regular gaming) and I'm good to go for hours :)

You might have to take them again after a long session of gaming though (maybe after 3-4 hours or so, which is where the effect of the ginger wears off for me).

It works wonders for me, they should sell this s**t through Steam, think of all the money they could make off motion sickness sufferers like us.

They could even bundle this with Resident Evil and make it a bonus pack ;)

u/terciopelo · 3 pointsr/Wishlist

Flakes are my favorite - Braggs or Now are both great.

u/toramimi · 3 pointsr/PlantBasedDiet

I buy most everything that's not fresh produce on Amazon. This is what I get and I absolutely love it! NOW is generally my go-to brand for a lot of stuff, supplements and melatonin and valerian root and all sorts of witchy vegan stuff.

I've tried the nooch from Frontier Co-Op that /u/Nalaku linked, in fact it's what I used when I first discovered nooch - went through two 1lb. bags over the course of a month before switching to NOW. Something to bear in mind is that Frontier's nooch is non-fortified, meaning there's no B12 added, so you'll have to get your daily/weekly B12 fix somewhere else. Nothing against Frontier Co-Op, I absolutely love their bulk herbs and teas! If you're already taking a B12 supplement separately you should have no problems.

u/childfree_IPA · 3 pointsr/sex

This is the kind I use.

I forgot it when I went on a 4-day trip recently & there was a noticable difference in how ready/clean I felt. I'm never gonna forget it again!!

u/paracog · 3 pointsr/keto

I use Amazing Grass Green Superfood, which is a mix of greens and other micro-nutrients, just toss it in with a smoothie and I'm set for a couple servings of veggies. Good for covering that base easily.

u/mr_bacon_pants · 3 pointsr/Fitness

Fucking lowlives. Sorry your mom got scammed. These are just general supplements that won't really do anything compared to a healthy diet. I wouldn't recommend buying them all. Maybe a multivitamin and fish oil, or a b-vitamin if she doesn't eat meat. Otherwise, they're likely a waste of money.

Here are some supplements I've taken that look like basically the same thing, though I don't see Amway's nutritional facts (with the list of ingredients) so I just have to go by the marketing nonsense on their site to guess at what all is in each.

Also, /r/supplements is great for questions like this.

  1. just looks like a multivitamin
  2. a superfood powder
  3. cal-mag + d
  4. fish oil
  5. digestive enzyme
  6. b vitamins
  7. vitamin c complex
  8. green tea
  9. green tea with coenzyme q10. not sure about a supplement for that
  10. probiotics
  11. chondroitin, glucosamine, boswellia, and hyaluronic acid complex. you can find supplements and creams with these ingredients.
u/creationrebel718 · 3 pointsr/bjj

I freaked out when I read it. had a good friend pass a stone and it did not sound pleasant at all. I am not sure how much is too much. I throw 3-4 whole leaves of kale every day raw. This along with Manitoba Hemp protien. I also began using Amazing green grass powder. Which is packed with green veggies.

u/LookThisOverPlease · 3 pointsr/Nootropics

Would this theoretical stack cause any toxicity problems? The theoretical stack would look something like the following:

Substance | Dose | Doses/Day | Timing
Modafinil | 100 mg | 1 | morning
Noopept | 20 mg | 3 | morning+noon+afternoon
Piracetam | 2000 mg | 3 | morning+noon+evening
CDP Choline | 300 mg | 3 | with Piracetam
Rhodiola | 500 mg (3% total, 1% sal.) | 2 | morning+noon
Bacopa | 1 Bacopa Gold capsule
| 2 | morning+afternoon
Caffeine| 100 mg | 4-6 | as needed
Theanine | 200 mg | 4-6 | with caffeine

*Sublingual RoA

** NOW Food Rhodiola

**1 Bacopa Gold capsule:
-275 mg USP Grade Bacopa Standardized Extract (20% triterpene)
-225 mg BacoMind Bacopa Standardized Extract

u/Jpar37 · 3 pointsr/Kava

Yeah, I just got a pound from amazon a couple weeks ago. It's great stuff. Potent, too.

Link to Kava Waka on Amazon

u/dave9600 · 3 pointsr/rva

There's a bunch of decent places online. Bula Kava House. Gourmet Hawaiian Kava. Kalm With Kava. Those are higher end and quite pricey. There's a kava on Amazon called Wakacon which is relatively inexpensive and pretty good.

A lot of people use flavored almond milk to help mask the taste. The fats in the milk are also supposed to help extract kavalactones. I've gotten used to the taste myself. Just drink it all at once and chase with cold water.

u/GetOffMyLawn_ · 3 pointsr/badwomensanatomy

I don't think there is any downside to trying. This is the brand I take. You can see the dosage is 1300 mg per pill. I find that buying it online is cheaper. The company that sells it also has free shipping if your order is above a certain amount, and they sell all sorts of things so if there is something else you normally use you can bundle that into your order and get free shipping. They even have some drugstore brand things, like Cetaphil and Eucerin and CeraVe.

If you have Amazon Prime you can get the same dose in this and get the free shipping.

u/ZestyPrognost · 3 pointsr/ketogains

I've been using this one on subscribe and save which makes it $0.50 for a daily serving. Although I did find this one which seems higher quality, albeit more expensive. If anyone can recommend a better green powder that's not too expensive, I'd be willing to try it.

u/SargeStadanko · 3 pointsr/kratom

PO boxes can be spendy and some places might not send kratom to PO boxes (only seen this once really). Check out the non-usps options too, like Mailbox ETC or other shipping stores in your town. The one in mine provides a real street address and not a PO box # at half the price as what the USPS charges.

If you decide to just try shipping to home, order from one of the places that sends in discreet packaging or has "herbal" in the name. I use HerbResearch and Herbal Salvation often and packaging isn't revealing.

Also, I drink kratom right out of my shaker cup mixed with either water, tea, or SunnyD at my work and when people ask, I tell them it's some "Super Greens Health Shit" and it really does look like it: check it out . You could do the same, just get the kratom, dump it all into some vitamin/healthy mix container like the one I linked so you sister never knows.

u/CalmNature · 3 pointsr/Kava

I use this system at home. Just fill the ball, shake a minute or so, pour. Works for me! Easy cleanup, travel friendly.

u/icandothisforsure · 3 pointsr/kratom

Get an Aluball! Great little invention for whipping up a batch of kava.

Another thing about's an acquired taste. I don't mind it so much any more but at first I found it repulsive. You can hold your breath though and bypass the taste altogether and do a chocolate milk chaser or something like that.

It's a very nice night time relaxer and also helps to get amazing sleep. I really love kava now.

u/clearheadeddd · 3 pointsr/Soulnexus

This is what I'm using. Has 6 species of mushrooms including Reishi. Only about a week in so far but I do feel more relaxed I guess.

u/redrabbit33 · 3 pointsr/Winnipeg

Lion's Mane mushroom supplement! I have MS and deal with these things off and on but Lions Mane has helped me a ton.


Paul Stamet's on Joe Rogan talking about it:


One brand on Amazon:

u/MadBuddhaAbusa · 3 pointsr/microdosing

I take 1000mg of extract (extracted with water) which contains more than 25% Beta-D-Glucans and less than 5% starch. This is the brand I take specifically

u/HurricaneHenry · 3 pointsr/StackAdvice

I've taken Venlafaxin (SNRI) and Lion's Mane without issue. The Lion's Mane didn't do anything at all for me though. Later I heard that the quality of the supplement is key. You need a supplement that's made from the fruiting body - not from the mycelium. I haven't tried it, but this one looks promising (and pricey).

u/Ben52646 · 2 pointsr/Drugs

This will help immensely with the nausea. Take every morning to prevent nausea all day.

u/Midsagittal · 2 pointsr/emetophobia

Yes, I believe so. This is the brand I use. I take 1 pill, 2 max if my stomach is upset.

u/johnfoster8 · 2 pointsr/alcohol

Ginger pills work wonders. Also don't eat anything at all or drink anything but water and gingerale.

u/Raisinbrannan · 2 pointsr/kratom

Lol all good. This one's fine I'm sure.

Or most grocery/health food stores will have em. Raw ginger would be fine too, but pills seem easier.

u/pooper-dooper · 2 pointsr/fasting

I say go for it. I recently bought some Solgar's Brewers Yeast under the same logic, but now realize I goofed. It's much more sugary than these nutritional yeasts. Personally I'd probably go with Now (most affordable) or Bob's Red Mill. They are both cheaper on Amazon than the one you linked, although Red Star is a well-known brand to home bakers.

Holy B vitamins, batman!

I'll eat this when I'm refeeding on the weekends, and maybe Wed/Thurs of my fast. (I fast Mon-Fri.)

u/kill_dano · 2 pointsr/fasting

I based my electrolyte soup on the Snake Juice guy's recepie as posted on the front page of his website. Changed it to suit me better. the sodium coems from Chicken boullion

Added curry powder for taste

I also add some nutritional yeast, for no real reason other than giving me some low low calorie nutrition and a tiny amount of protein. Plus it's what that world record fasting guy was taking for a year of fasting.

Then also like to add cayan peper or hot sause. Then I add all the stuff in the reciepie like Lemon, lime juice, baking soda, apple cider vinager, potasium (no salt)

It ends up tasting like spicey soup. I heat it to 140 degrees in a water kettle before drinking.

Fuck it, here's my detailed instructions:

Start with 3qt of water

Add all this:

2 or 3 tbs Chicken/Tomato Boullion (start w 2 and add more if you want or don't get the shits, also consider the amount of water or diet drinks that you drink and make you piss out your salts)

1 tbs Baking soda

1 tbs No salt/Potasium

2 TBSP Nutritional Yeast

4 TBSP Lime Juice

4 TBSP Lemon Juice

6 TBSP Apple cider vinager

1 TBSP Curry powder

Spicy shit to taste.

heat it to 140 degrees. Drink slowly and as much as you feel like. I end up drinking all of it like every 2 days and a half. It does seem to cause me to retain water weight, but who cares. Remeber if the scale stops moving it's probably water and it will catch up, just go by how your body feels and how your clothes fit. The scale is not a good short term measure of success.

u/TempAccount8891 · 2 pointsr/vegetarian

I buy nutritional yeast on amazon for just over $8 for 10oz and have been told you can get an even better deal on VitaCost. I price compared mine to my local grocery chain HEB and it was a great deal. It only ships as an add-on item, so I buy it with a 6.1 lb $8.02 jackfruit can that is another add-on item, when I need them and am shopping for other items.

u/doin_big_things · 2 pointsr/Supplements

Life Extension brand Curcumin for sure. Been using it for a while, uses a certain type of curcumin preparation called BCM-95 which is proven to be absorbed better.

u/faraz3050 · 2 pointsr/tressless

I have done research on this and would offer a couple of suggestions to try out:

  1. Your blood test will likely measure CRP (I hope it did). CRP is a non-specific test for inflammation so it will average out all the areas and wont tell you a lot.
  2. Try using tea tree oil (10%) + coconut oil (90%) mixture on the head. This has really good antifungal and antiseptic properties. You might also get a shampoo with tea tree oil.
  3. Start eating a pill of bio available curcumin supplement. It kills inflammation like a badass. You can get any of those with BCM 95. I take this in case you want a recommendation.

  4. If these fail, go see a Trichologist. Sorry to say this, but hair derms dont look with a microscope at your scalp, and a trichologist is usually way more equipped to help you.
u/theskepticalidealist · 2 pointsr/Nootropics

I use the Life Extension brand. One a day, is it worth taking more?

u/couldntthinkofanyth · 2 pointsr/askgaybros

I had a similar problem for years and haven't had a bad hemorrhoid in about 2 years. Even when it does happen (rarely and I bottom like 5x a week for hours at a time. life is good.) following this advice they go away much quicker than the month+ it used to take and with minimal discomfort.

-First buy one of these this one linked will last indefinitely as opposed to some other brands. This will allow you to sit without aggravating it. You should also avoid sitting for a half hour after eating meals. Laying down flat on your back or walking around is the best position to be in to heal a hemorrhoid once its already there, but if you must sit (driving, reddit, etc.) do it on an inflatable donut.

-This is the big one: no creams or medications do anything to help, dont even try, they will probably just make it worse and at best be very uncomfortable. What helps then? submerge your lower half in water tub/pool/hottub/lake doesnt matter but this was my panacea in hemorrhoid treatment and it works wonders. Most doctors wont tell you about it because they like money and giving expensive painful surgeries and having you come in for regular visits (i.e $$$$). Save your time, ass, and money and get in a tub. This also works as a preventative measure, get in a tub or pool right after sex (and a quick rinse at least) for 10min or so and no more hemorrhoids.

Besides that, avoid straining on the toilet or sitting for too long, no texting while pooping. Do not wipe too much or too hard, once is enough and then go take a shower and rinse (A dip in the tub helps here too if you have the time). If your problem stems from difficult times pooping, Psyllium. A big spoonful before breakfast and dinner works wonders.

Your post struck a chord with me as I had a very hard time with this and spent too much time with an out-of-order ass and a sad boyfriend. The submerging in water came from internet research and I did not expect it to work (figured that if it were that easy why wouldnt a doctor have told me by then?) but it was the turn around for me as I had already been doing all the other stuff for months at that point. Doctors just want you to keep coming back so they can collect from the insurance companies (what happened to helping people IDK) and may even perform a procedure which you do not want trust me.

tl;dr- op, seriously just read it. submerge in water, dont wipe too much, dont sit too much

edit: Also I use an enema like 99% of the time before sex out of necessity and still do not get hemorrhoids following this advice.

u/ThePsylosopher · 2 pointsr/fasting

Especially if you're going to be taking fiber during your fast, I highly recommend switching to a fiber supplement without so many additives. Not sure how your body handles it, but for me all those additives during a fast would be a recipe for some nasty headaches. Look for something that is just fiber without additives. I buy this stuff.

u/gideon825 · 2 pointsr/xxketo

Not sure what you have tried thus far or how much psyllium. But I used to have more bloating and GI issues then anyone pre-keto/pre supplements. One of the great effects of not having a gall bladder. I highly recommend the following to everyone, i rarely has gas of any kind. Used to be a burp and fart machine. With a balloon under my shirt.

Specific to digestion:
Find a very good organic Probiotic. Brand Garden of Life is what I use. 👌
Enzymedica Digest Gold digestive enzymes +ATP - take with every meal or snack! 👊
And of course psyllium husk. No pills or any of that stuff. You want organic whole husk psyllium from India.
Organic India Whole Husk Psyllium, 12-Ounce
Take 5-7 grams, put into a water bottle that's like 2/3 full around 10-12oz of water. Shake well. Chug. Do this either at night or in morning figure out which works best for you.

Other things I take daily which have a small effect:
Pure Hawaiian spirulina
Vitamin d
Multivitamin - Garden of life brand as well
Fish oil
Krill oil
Potassium/magnesium supplement.

This might seem excessive but ever since I started this regimen I am not bloated sick nor have unpleasant BMs

u/kalimot · 2 pointsr/xxfitness

Psyllium husk changed my life!

u/magneticbetty · 2 pointsr/AskTrollX

Yeah! I buy this kind and it says to take one tablespoon per day, so that's what I did. Just mixed it into a cup of juice and drank it down. I think Metamucil is basically the same thing, but I like doing the psyllium by itself without any flavor. It basically just adds a bit of texture to whatever I'm drinking.

u/threenoms · 2 pointsr/HookahTrade

You may wanna consider lowering the price on coconaras. You can get it for $15 shipped on Amazon.

u/pizzapueblo · 2 pointsr/Boise

I can't comment on specific Boise locations, but as far as good coals go, you can get some good coals online for a good price. I like Coco Nara. Just make sure you store them properly or they can go bad.

amazon link:

I've been to Big Smoke elsewhere in Idaho. They were far from my favorite place to purchase from, but they should carry most brands, including some good ones (albeit limited selection, and not the best prices).

My preferences are Al Fakher (nice and wet. Burns well and gives nice smoke), and Nakhla (most popular amongst middle eastern smokers and often higher nicotine content; 0.5% opposed to 0.05%.)

My best results have been from mixing a Nakhla flavor with an Al Fakhker. I find Nakhla to be a bit on the drier side.

Starbuzz is also a safe go-to brand.

I wish I could give you a specific answer, but my best experiences have been middle eastern run stores. They have offered my brands at as little as half as what Big Smoke does, and they carry a wide selection (up to 20 flavors of Al Fakher vs maybe 3-4 at Big Smoke).

Happy hunting

u/UwasaWaya · 2 pointsr/tampa

New to Tampa hookah enthusiast here... take time and research what you're looking for. Ordering online might not be a bad idea. If you're looking to share with a group, one that rotates is a great idea, otherwise you might end up having a friend you've known from highschool burn holes in your carpet as she stumbles after an intense drinking game in which she only drank vodka and sprite.

Smaller ones are nice if it's just you or you and an SO, and you can find tiny hookahs for about $20 at the tobacco store near K-Mart in... Lutz? Land O' Lakes? Still learning the lay of the land. Also, not sure if that hookah's any good. Sometimes they're a bit of a gamble.

Also, try a bunch of different flavors. Al Fakher and Fantasia are two of mine... Al Fakher being great on flavor and smoke, Fantasia having lots of molasses and an unusual assortment of flavors. Haven't had a lot of luck with Starbreeze, but some friends swear by it. I highly recommend Fantasia's Mai Tai and Rainbow and Al Fakher's Grape with Berry. They're usually crowd pleasers.

In regards to coals, we used the quick light coals for a long time but ended up switching to Coco Nara coconut shell coals. I highly, highly recommend Coco Nara. They need to be lit on a stove, but they burn forever, don't taste as 'burny' as the quick lights, burn forever and leave a much smaller mess. You can buy these at Raa's Specialty Foods on 54 (I think that's where it is), near Bosco's Italian.

As for the bowl, couple of tips... if you can find a bowl and metal screen combo that fit together, get that. It's nicer and less wasteful than aluminum foil. Make sure when you pack the bowl the shisha isn't touching the screen/foil above it, otherwise it'll burn and taste like Satan is violating your throat. If you use foil, poke lots of little holes but a few large ones that go through the shisha.

A couple of neat accessories are ice tips, which will require a special hose (sadly, we don't have these yet... need a job first. lol), but let you freeze them ahead of time for a crazy smooth smoke. It also kills the flavor of some of the shisha you'll find, so experiment.

Of course, always use fresh water each time. We've tried things like sangria and flavored waters before, and they're... weird. Not bad, but very mild. A handful of mint leaves is nice though.

Anywho, sorry to rant, but I love meeting other hookah enthusiasts. I had a lot of bumpy starts getting used to using hookah, but it's become a favorite thing of ours in the evening while we're writing or watching tv.

If you have any questions, by all means feel free to shoot me a PM. And if you find any awesome hookah places, please tell me!

We just moved to Tampa, so we aren't really settled, but maybe we'll see you around sometime!

EDIT: Also, make sure you get extra grommets for the bowl and maybe a few for where the hose meets the body, just to ensure a snug fit. They can melt if you have the hookah burning for too many consecutive bowls.

TL:DR Why name a Chinese food restaurant 'Ichiban'?

u/rhythmguy · 2 pointsr/hookah

Are you saying these are fake? Seems to be by the company, free shipping, great reviews.

u/Tinytox · 2 pointsr/hookah

I like to consider myself a Hookah enthusiast at this point, I love the gadgets that improve my experience, and I'll list you a few. I'd also like to point out that I get my supplies from two places:

If you haven't invested yet, there are some things that are basically a bare minimum in the hookah world(my opinion).. Coconut coals (I always recommend Coco nara, but Never X hale worked pretty well also. I've had some other ones that were.. well, bad... Avoid anything with paint on the outside, splurge and just get the coco nara.)

It's also worth noting that The Mystique ice tips are probably the #1 largest improvement for your hookah-smoking experience. I'd recommend getting them off of amazon, if you smoke hookah for over 2 hours at a time, it's probably worth getting 3 of them:

You'll also need a hose that can fit the Mystique tips. I repeatedly have been satisfied with Nammor hookah hoses, but never really bothered to look for another hose that can house a Mystique tip.

In my experience, the hookah doesn't really matter too much, the key thing is usually the ash tray, the basin hole size (cleaning), and optionally, if you pass it a lot, swivel bases.

The hookah I've been using for the last year has been very good to me, the only real downside is cleaning it is a pain. See here:

My favorite Tobacco has been for quite some time, Starbuzz, I also like Fantasia, I enjoyed Tangiers, but the majority of my friends don't, and you are pretty likely to get sick off of it if you're smoking with less than 3 people. You probably will anyways. These I'll pick up at local retailers, or hookah-shisha, my previous experience on Amazon has been pretty bad with tobacco quality, unfortunately.

I've been very satisfied with my (two) lotuses. I got an extra one for free thanks to Amazons carrier, I called them and they sent me an extra one, two days later a neighbor delivered my package saying it was left at their door.

Sorry if I rambled here, it's my first post and I wanted to (hopefully) be regarded as helpful. Best of luck!

u/Lightning14 · 2 pointsr/Supplements

Complete protein veggie supplements tend to be pricier than whey and soy protein powders. I use this. It's the best bang for your buck that I have found. Just look at the list of ingredients (including amino-acid profile), but beware that it has xylitol and stevia in it, so it is very sweet tasting. To balance that, I find it goes well in a smoothie with kale and spirulina (I also add creatine, flax, unsweetened almond milk, half a banana, and lots of water/ice for a great breakfast smoothie). The other option, as you said, is to just supplement with amino acids.

u/nice_t_shirt · 2 pointsr/vegan

From their website, I would assume so. You can also ask on /r/supplements. For what it's worth, Nutrex Hawaii is supposed to be a good brand. I eat it pretty often and it's great.

u/killdeviljill · 2 pointsr/keto

Taste is subjective, but I personally like sucralose and erythritol best--stevia in any form has a very distinctive taste that I dislike, and xylitol somehow manages to mimic a non-minty minty cool taste that I find weird.

You can get liquid sucralose super-cheap on Amazon in convenient little dropper bottles, and erythritol is available online and sometimes at Whole Foods and similar markets under the brands Swerve and Zero--both zero carb.

u/Mickey330 · 2 pointsr/keto

I like to use liquid sucralose (brand name EZ-Sweetz, Amazon (USA) link):

These are the little bottles that fit nicely in a pocket or purse. For me, one drop is sufficient to sweeten a 12-ounce cup of coffee. I carry a bottle everywhere I go and put it in all my unsweetened beverage. Best part, it’s carb-free cause it’s just sucralose without the fillers that come in those little powder packets (Splenda, the yellow packet, is the sweetener packet with sucralose). Score! 😊

u/shaunbwilson · 2 pointsr/keto

Trader Joe's is cheaper than Amazon for me. Amazon's probably among the cheapest, though.

The recipe below is very versatile and can cover both sweet and savory snacks. You can make it into muffins or you can make it into a bread shape. My wife and I like to use it to make grilled cheese.


Melt 1 tablespoon butter (or other fat — sometimes I use coconut oil and my wife likes cream cheese) in a microwave safe container that is the shape that you want your bread/muffin to be in. (We like to use square Tupperware if we're using it for sandwich bread or a coffee mug to make it more of a muffin shape.)

Always Add:

  • 1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 5 or 6 grinds of salt
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed
  • Pinch of baking powder

    Optionally, also add (alone or in combination):

  • Garlic powder
  • Dill
  • Cinnamon
  • Sweetener (we like ezSweetz liquid sucralose because it doesn't contain filler like granular sucralose; filler = carbs)
  • Shredded cheddar
  • Pepper powder (chili, cayenne, etc.)

    Mix ingredients very well.

    Add one large egg and mix very, very well.

    Microwave approximately 1 minute or until the middle is firm.

    Serve with cheese, cream cheese, peanut butter, butter, or other keto-friendly toppings.

    My favorite combos are garlic/dill and cinnamon/liquid sucralose.
u/G3n3r4lch13f · 2 pointsr/Nootropics

I've always been taking this brand. Take 2-3 a day depending on what I have going on. I usually mix with caffeine, as I notice what seems to be a synergistic interaction between the two substances (of course there may not be, it just seems like it to me). I tend to find it much easier to focus, and all around I feel as though I can "think" better. Also feel more motivated much of the time.

It could be a placebo effect, but I recently also started taking ashwagandha and haven't noticed much of an effect from it even though I was expecting one.

u/ufojoe · 2 pointsr/Nootropics

I didn't say it needed 300mg of bacosides. It should have at least 100mg preferably 150mg or more.

The only time I said 300mg I was talking about how much non-extract was in the product you linked.

this product has 320mg at 55% bacosides for a total of 176mg of bacosides. Plus additional bacosides from the non-extract portion.

u/crystalcastles72 · 2 pointsr/Kava

Interesting Ive always thought of getting the tinctures but never have tell me if you like it. Keep in mind kava has a reverse tolerance so you may not feel it the first few days you try it. This is my go to kava tastes good and is pretty strong.

u/Kizmau · 2 pointsr/Buddhism

I was diagnosed with Aspergers (for whatever that's worth) and have immense problems with anxiety, but I've been taking one teaspoon of Kava Kava stirred in some juice every night before bed and I could feel the difference literally the next morning. Even just after the first time taking it. Apparently, the results are not the same for everyone but I'm thinking it has something to do with me needing something to calm my nerves down. So it might help you as well. Doing a little research, its a ceremonial drink common in Hawaii that many use as an alternative to alcohol to obtain a "drunk" feeling. I have never tried more than a teaspoon at a time so I don't know much about that aspect. All I can say is that Kava is the best thing I have found to cure my anxiety ever. Far surpasses any doctors prescribed medication I have ever taken. Its all natural and it has a reverse tolerance, meaning you won't have to keep adding more to your dosage at night to keep the same feeling. Just one teaspoon mixed in a small glass of juice (can be any type of juice) each night before bed and that's it. If you miss a dose, it's not going to give you harsh side effects either.

I usually get it from Mountain Rose Herbs. They have excellent quality and prices. BUT, they are sold out right now.

You can find it on Amazon though as well but I can't attest to those brands.

As far as supplements and interactions I generally didn't notice any increases except for when I first started Lion's mane I found I felt kinda weird. Also when I started taking the greens powder juice at first I felt like my symptoms would increase when I took it for maybe an hour or so idk why.

For noporn/nofap I'm seeing a girl currently so I do notice some increased effects shortly after sex but all the positive hormones from being with someone else seem to make me feel better overall/less relaxed or focusing on symptoms.

You can try taking a probiotic, this is the one I'm using.

But you know what has seemed to really help eliminate my constipation problem, I mean totally eliminate it? Magnesium.

Not only are my poops no longer hard but they are many times actually soft. I recently decided I didn't like the direction my health was headed, got my blood work done and found I was pre-diabetic and had slight anemia. So I started hitting the gym nearly every day, eating way better, and supplementing. I did some research for supplements backed by science. The list I came up with was this:

Creatine Monohydrate

Magnesium (L-Threonate is supposedly better able to cross the blood-brain barrier)

Vitamin D3


Fish Oil

I've been taking all of this stuff for about two months now and between that, the better diet, and working out my energy levels are much higher, my strength is already improving a lot, and my poops are not hard anymore.

Right now I'm on a low dose of Suboxone, 2mg/day, so I'm sure that helps. After being on this drug for 11 years I'm a big believer in being on the lowest dose you can be comfortable on.

/u/eodgooch Thanks for your response. Annie is a rescue too, we got her when she was 8 weeks according to the Humane Society. (I had my doubts as she had no teeth yet and could fit in my one hand- and I've got tiny lady hands!)

I bottle raised her for the first 3 weeks until her teeth came in. Lucky for me I was in between jobs and had those first three weeks off, because I was feeding her puppy formula every hour-hour and a half. After that puppers went to work with Da everyday (because he has a dog friendly office).

Considering the miserable start she's had, I am always a bit worried for her. I feed her Fromm the grain-free kibbles which she seems to love.

I do add Psyllium Husk, which is a gluten free fibre product, to her breakfast (so we don't have to milk her arse glands; makes her produce a nice ahem-loaf.) and on occasion I add a little yoghourt or boiled carrots/beans/broccoli to her dinner.

u/workaccount1983 · 1 pointr/loseit

I agree with supplementing with psyllium husks.

I use a really old Ayurvedic tonic to flush my system completely about once a month or so. Mix 2 teaspoons with 1 liter of water and drink it after it has fully dissolved / mixed. Basically this ratio of salt and water matches our bodies' innate salinity and thus none of the water is absorbed. The result is that it just flushes right through your system a carries a lot of waste out as well. You're definitely going to want to be near a toilet for a few hours because it works very quickly.

Personally, i would recommend upgrading to coco naras. They're inexpensive ($8 for 108 of them) and most of /r/hookah seems to love them. I have personally used insta-lights and coco naras in the same night and there is a notable difference in the quality of the smoke, not just in the flavor but in the clouds as well. (Bonus: buying off instead of the normal sends a portion of your purchase to a charity of your choosing).

Other than that, possibly a phunnel bowl and some tangiers, fumari or argelini shisha.

Truvia contains stevia w/ erythritol. I just dumped my splenda (which contains maltodextrin, a thickener that adds carbs) and bought some Truvia. Some people swear by EZ-Sweetz which is sucralose w/o the maltodextrin thickener:

u/starien · 1 pointr/keto

This stuff. It's liquid sucralose. Splenda in drops instead of granular.

u/munklunk · 1 pointr/keto

So, while the marscarpone balls were chilling in the fridge, I decided to make use of the leftover coating chocolate to cover some truffles.

Ingredients (and amazingly simple instructions):

  1. 3 Tbls cocoa powder
  2. 1 Tbls Coconut Oil
  3. 2 Tbls Peanut Butter (I use Skippy Natural cause it tastes the best)
  4. A few drops of no carb liquid sucralose (honestly, buy it) or powdered equivalent.

    Mix the cocoa and coconut oil with a fork until it is smooth and lump free. This takes a few minutes, but keep at it. When combined, add a big lump of peanut butter and the sweetener and mix like the devil. As long as the peanut butter is not cold, it will blend right in.

    Put in the freezer to harden a little (about 15 minutes), then take out, shape into balls and let harden in the fridge for about a half an hour. When hardened, simply roll around in the same chocolate coating as in the other recipe and refrigerate.

    I swear, they melt in your mouth and taste like amazing chocolate-peanut butter truffles.
u/ketosusan · 1 pointr/ketoscience

Try the liquid sucralose drops (EZ-Sweetz) as the Splenda packets contain maltodextrin. I use these all the time with no triggering effect.

u/mr_sippycup · 1 pointr/Supplements

There's also a brand called "Nutrigold". They sell a bottle of 90 capsules for relatively cheap. Each capsule is 500 mg, with 175 mg extract of bacopa a and b in each. You can get it off of Amazon. I had no issues with the supplier. Fast shipping too.

u/hatepoorpeople · 1 pointr/Supplements

Based on your studies, 300mg seems to be the magic number. Seems like many of them sell 200, 250 and 500mg. Not sure what to get, but I'm leaning towards this one. Should I consider the Bacopa, Ginkgo combos?

u/zacher88 · 1 pointr/Supplements

Has anyone looked at this bacopa brand on Amazon:

I emailed them about the heavy metal content and they seemed pretty confident that it was very low. I can try digging up the email a little later, stuck at work right now.

The bacosides in the description is a little confusing but it looks like its between 50% and 20%.

Anyone else have any possible input on the bacopa SSRI interaction? Just want to get a couple more opinions before I make the jump.

u/bacop · 1 pointr/Supplements

I ended up getting the nutrigold one. It has Bacopin which is 50% bacosides(175mg bacosides/pill). Just need to take 2 pills(350mg bacosides), 90 tabs, and 16 dollars.

So it will cost about $12/month. It seems like a cheaper deal, perhaps you should look into it too since it is an integral part of your stack. They also operate under GMP-approved and FDA registered facilities so the metal scare is not a problem.

u/deh707 · 1 pointr/Nootropics

Dosing just once a day, it took about 2 weeks for the fatigue to convert into just a calm, relaxed, mood-uplifted state of mind.

u/Submersed · 1 pointr/FulfillmentByAmazon

While I understand why you may think that, it just isn't true. The true statement is that most synthetic nootropics are not available to be sold on Amazon. However this is a small part of the nootropics market.

These are three nootropics that are doing very well. There's plenty of room in this market to launch a "Natural Nootropic Super Blend" with a snazzy label and clever marketing. You'll never find good opportunities if you don't open your eyes to them, and just assume things cannot be sold.

I've found ashwaghanda to make me very sleepy, but it is good to take in the evening.

I agree that Kava can help immensely, if only to take a dose of something for mental purposes. I did not know they sold it at Walgreens though.

I purchased this from amazon and it was very good stuff. I also have a local place selling 2 pounds for like $40 but got a DUI a few weeks ago and can't drive over there :(

u/RebuildMode- · 1 pointr/tea

If you haven't checked it out already, r/kava is a pretty good sub for recommendations. All the kavas I've tried have tasted pretty similar (ie, peppery dirt) and have had similar effects, so when I was drinking it I used to get this stuff. It has its fans (and detractors), it does what kava should, and you can get one-day Prime shipping.

u/Real_Dr_Eder · 1 pointr/Kava

Kalm With Kava is a popular high-end brand.


They do make medium grind powder, which you would need to strain. Squeezed or strained medium grind is what most people would refer to as traditional kava. In my experience, this is the more affordable way to go, and I end up feeling a cleaner and "fuller" experience. That being said, traditional prep requires a bunch of squeezing and kneading, and 5-15 minutes of your time.


However, the Kalm With Kava product that you screenshotted is micronized kava.


Micronized kava is generally more potent, it is an incredibly fine powder, and all you have to do is mix one or two tablespoons into whichever drink you prefer. I like preparing traditional kava with whole milk and I have done it with chocolate milk too, so it should definitely work fine with micronized.


If convenience is a priority for you, then I would give what you posted a shot.


If you want to try traditional filtered kava instead, there are quite a few good choices on Amazon, and a muslin strainer bag can be bought from there too.

This is interesting, to say the least. It oddly sounds satisfying. Oh and try Kava Kava root for insomnia.

u/ShaolinShade · 1 pointr/hookah

>a low dose of Xanax, without the sleepiness or the mind fog

This sounds great. I take Etizolam (an RC benzo / xanax-type-equivalent) and I've found that it's best in low doses for reducing anxiety and relaxing, but it also has a tendency to put me to sleep if I try to pursue any more of a high (drinking, taking more of it etc.) and can give a mind fog / memory gaps that I don't really like. I'd love to get those effects without the sleepiness and mind fog.

>Best bet is just to get some ground kava root, put it in a cheesecloth (I use a paint strainer[1] ) fill a bowl with room temperature water, drop the bag of ground root in the water, let it soak for 5-10 minutes then knead it for 10 minutes. Then just scoop the "tea" into a small cup and slam it back.

How much kava / water do you use for this? I'm guessing this might vary depending on how strong the strain of kava is?

>Kava is unique because it has reverse tolerance. Most drugs (for lack of a better term) require you to use more and more each time to feel the effects. With kava it takes less over time to feel it. It has to be a daily thing, after about 5-7 days, you'll be able to feel it quicker with less tea.

If you build up the reverse tolerance but then stop taking it, how long have you found that it usually takes for you to lose it and return to the point where you have to build it back up again?

>Bula Kava House has a good selection. I like the waka kava and the koniac the best. It's easy just to snag up their starter pack which has 4 or 5 good sized bags of their most popular strains. I've not had their instant kava yet, but I hear good things about it.

I found waka kava on amazon for a considerably cheaper price than Bula Kava House's waka kava. Any idea if that's likely to be a good bang for your buck, or is Bula Kava's stuff stronger?

u/jcohle · 1 pointr/Kava

Amazon also sells Kava Waka. You get twice the amount for half the price, and the quality isn't too bad. It's not as good as Kalm, but it's worth it to save a few bucks.

Made a reddit account for the reason that I want to tell people how to get rid of hormonal acne. I swear I tried everything. Every bitch control, diet changes (some very extreme), spearmint, vitex, every skin care product...... the thing that WORKED and completely got rid of my acne is Evening Primrose Oil. I swear it's a magic pill. Can't believe one really exists. I take one every day with dinner and I just don't get acne anymore. Still clogged pores, but just tiny whiteheads/blackheads, never cysts. I used to get a bunch of giant cysts on the lower half of my face, and especially bad during time of the month. Now, nothing. Still can't believe it. BTW I tried curology and it did nothing for me either. The best skincare line I've found is Drunk Elephant. Look them up. Expensive, but worth it. Also, get a prescription for Retin-A. That stuff works wonders.

I (41M) know that green drinks / superfoods are the big fad right now but I am the furthest person from jumping on fads, especially as they relate to diets. I was recommend one by Nested Naturals called Supper Greens. I took it for a while but stopped because I was running around for work and just stopped. I'm starting to get things back in order and thought about taking this again but wanted to get opinions. I currently am only taking a multi-vitamin and vitamins for dry eyes. I'm trying to eat better and am getting back into exercising but wanted to supplement these changes with something like the drink below. The thing that got really nervous was an article about impurities in these powders. I was trying to read this article but you had to pay $30, not happening.

I'm not entirely sure at the moment. Right now I am doing the following:

  • 4 vitamin D drops/day [8,000iu]
  • 3 turmeric capsules
  • 1 fish oil pill
  • No starch in diet along with lowish carbs. Lots of salad with some fruit. Lean meats
  • Low-impact cardio every evening [longboarding]
  • 8 hours sleep/night

    Prices of those supplements may be less elsewhere...

    For the past few years I have taken Humira as needed when the AS really flares up. But I haven't had a shot for months, and this is probably the best I have felt since I was diagnosed. I can't believe how well the above protocol is working. Hopefully it lasts: AS is a horrible disease!

    I'm actually off Testosterone shots right now, and my natural production is slowly creeping upwards. My AS might have actually gotten worse on T shots. Impossible to say for sure, though.
u/four-fourty-four · 1 pointr/kratom

That's for sure, this is definitely a friendlier place to ask, and there are people like me who are at least somewhat knowledgable about the kava root :)

If you do get some root instead of concentrated liquid or micronized, and you enjoy it but dont wanna take all that time, you can get a blender super cheap like 20 bucks i think, probably less if you hit up a goodwill or salvation army lmao.

There's also the Aluball which is supposedly easy to use, and you dont have to filter your kava through a bag for 10 minutes. Plus I've heard that the company that makes the Aluball has good kava too.

But from what i've read, root is better than micronized and liquid and it's as if they are missing something, but I only have tried root and yogi tea bags lol so I don't have anything to compare to. Could very easily be easily be kava snobbishness, like how people in this sub look down on people who get their kratom at a headshop or gas station or not from one of r/kratom's approved vendors.

I take it about the same time I take agmatine 30-45 minutes before. Not convinced it does anything, but curcumin is good for the joints anyways.

5mg piperine is good enough if taken around the same time, otherwise you need the piperine with the curcumin.

Here is an example of a good curcumin product:

Here is an example of a bad one:

You can see in the second one, it only has 150mg of curcumin, while the vast majority is just turmeric. A lot of products will also put tuermeric in with curcumin in a proprietary blend. To be safe, you should make sure the only things labeled in the product are piperine and 95% curcmin extract from turmeric.

I'm in the nutraceutical biz and what I've found is most effective is to look up on Amazon or Vitacost the drug that I'm taking, than I check the ingredients and from this you'll find the safe dosages. Branded retailers are pretty good about putting correct qty in capsules.

Go to Amazon and just type in "Enhanced Turmeric" a number of products show up. or click this link

this product says 10mg per 1500mg dose

This product is 10mg per 1300mg dose\

This product 10mg per 1500mg dose

So the suggested dose of retailers is 10mg per 1500mg that is the safe level. These companies have researchers who investigate the products before formulating. Let them do there work and just follow there findings and you'll be fine. We are in a litigous society so if they are wrong than they can be sued. They usually aren't.

u/TheLucidLion · 1 pointr/Supplements

Curcumin extract is the active ingredient in turmeric - or at least the main driver of the benefits. I have seen some positive anti inflammatory effects myself, less joint pain after working out, reduced allergies, etc.

It is not very bioavailable in the body, so make sure you go with a brand that is high quality and uses bioperine - which enhances bioavailablity.

Curcumin. My daughter's GI suggested it for it's benefits in the inflammation of the Intestines, but we find it brings her joint pain from a 6/7 to a 0/1. She even recently has started working out again. She takes two of these a day, which is the amount that the tests the NIH show to be beneficial.

u/cheezeebred · 1 pointr/Nootropics

Well the problem is I literally cant afford to just up the dosage, as it is already expensive for me. I take 2 a day, which makes it only last 25 days. This other curcumin seems more cost effective. I already bought it so why not try it and see if it's a decent replacement for the longvida? This new curcumin is the highest rated on amazon with over 9000 reviews, all raving about its effectiveness with bodily pain, I didn't see many people talk about curcubrain helping with their body inflammation, just the mental benefits.

When I was trying to sustain weight while working out everyday I had a good daily 3 meals that I was satisfied with and kept me energized, healthy, and and focused throughout my day:

Breakfast: Protein smoothie: whey, cow milk, hemp seeds, blueberries, banana, cherries, and shroom supplement. I work early mornings so if I'm not fasting I like to drink this throughout the morning hours as it keeps me full with the carbs, fats, and protein and focused with well sourced shroom supplement. This is the most efficient one I found and I do notice a change in focus as well as endurance if I workout in the morning (after consistent use of course)

Lunch: Yogurt, Flax seeds, Fruit. Sometimes I'll just grab a clif bar.

Dinner: Protein and veggies. Usually a fatty steak and sauteed veggies like asparagus, brussel sprouts, cauliflower. If not a fatty meat then chicken with fingerling potatoes.

IMO: don't announce to your parents. Make it a transition, phasing animal products out as you learn how to follow a vegan diet. That way you'll probably avoid fears about your health and other related things, and it'll be easier for you (and more likely that you stick with it).

You could say something like you're working to reduce your consumption if you're asked. The word vegan can be scary to some people.

Make fruit a staple would be my advice for diet. Super easy + healthy + tasty. Steamed potatoes (with other stuff if you like, but I like them on their own with a bit of salt and cayenne) are a super easy satisfying meal, which you will crave as you make the switch. Also be sure you're getting critical nutrients (not that a vegan diet makes you any more likely to be deficient than the standard american diet)-- b12, iodine, and omegas are the big ones I think (the linked brands are the best ones I've found). Those supplements are expensive, but it helps that you don't need a lot. A bottle of the b12 could last you two months, and iodine could last you a year.

Spirulina is also like a vegan whole food multivitamin/mineral and good source of easily assimilable protein.
