Context is king.

Quote from the above study.

>A search using 5 Internet search engines and the search terms Ayurveda and Ayurvedic medicine identified 25 Web sites offering traditional Ayurvedic herbs, formulas, or ingredients commonly used in Ayurveda, indicated for oral use, and available for sale.

The near decade old study looked solely at Ayurveda websites not mainstream brands. This is not a study of 20% of all ashwagandha sold in the US moreso companies who just sell Indian herbs which potentially raises red flags on that alone.

KSM-66 was the brand used in the Testosterone study and the company is considered to have high quality standards.

Their material is in many brands such as;

Jarrow Formulas, LEF, Nootropic Depot, Pure Nootropics, Vitacost, Swanson, Doctor's Best, etc. As long as you buy any of these there should be no concern over metal content since the material is the same. No different than buying Suntheanine.

Best value seems to be Jarrow on amazon $11.56 for 300 mg 120 capsules so great choice OP.

They even have a 40% off coupon when you select Subscribe so I'll switch to this after I use my first bottle.

Edit: Formatting.

  • B12: cannot stress that enough, don't believe sources telling you that you can get this vitamin from unwashed vegetables, tempeh, seaweed, etc. B12 is created by bacteria which lives in dirty enviroment and isn't associated with animal products either (you can get it from animals, but the bacteria living in their guts still do all the work). I recommend taking these Deva vitmains. It's highly recommended to take any B12 oral supplementation with food, because it bounds to certain proteins, allowing better digestion.

  • D: depends on where you live and what your skin complextion is; vitamin D2 (the non-animal version) is created when your skin is exposed to ultraviolet light (e.g. the sun). 20 minutes of daily exposure is enough for pale people (I think paleness reported in some vegans might actually be an adaptation technique), but if you're black and live in England, I would recommend an hour or so. This vitamin is needed for proper calcium digestion.

  • Iron: iron is not usually problem in males, women can have problem because of their period. There's a really easy trick to sky-rocket your iron intake - eat vitamin C with iron-rich food and avoid tea and cofee.

  • Calcium: dark green vegetables and soy products are rich on calcium. I drink fortified soy milk. Sneaky edit: spinach is actually not a great source of iron and calcium due to high oxalate content, as opposed to popular claims. Broccoli on the other hand... learn to love it!

  • Protein: that's a really easy one - lentils. Eat quinoa (tastes like rice, but has twice the nutrients), beans and peas. Wheat pasta is an empty food, try not to overuse it. Lysine is the limiting amino acid in vegan diets, but lentils have plenty of it (that's why you should eat them). Your daily protein intake can be calculated by this equation: your_weight_in_kg [number from 1 to 1.3 depending on your physicial activity, higher number means higher activity] = grams_of_protein_you_should_eat. For example: 80kg 1.2 (high activity) = 96g of protein.

  • omega-3: you should stabilize ratio of your omega-6:omega-3 intake to 4:1 (the best scenario would be 1:1, but that's very hard). Try to avoid sunflower oil and use olive or canola one, eat walnuts and flax seeds. But not flax seed oil, it tastes like a poison from armpit!


  • Food preparation: I highly recommend steam cooking, the taste is amazing and vitamins/minerals don't dissolve in water.

  • Society: Just don't give a damn about others too much, you are doing the right thing and don't have to apologize for anything. People don't like confrontation and depending on your personality, you might be tempted to talk about your veganism a lot at first. Try to hold it back for few months to sober up a little :)

    Have I congratulated you? No? Here you go: congratulations! :)

Why not some Miracle Fruit Tablets. They change the way you taste food for about an hour and its almost guaranteed your SS won't have them.

u/sidthekid13 · 21 pointsr/Supplements

Wow the other answers here are annoying. Here's a RELEVANT answer since it's a SUPPLEMENT: Ashwagandha.



Been taking on a regular basis for 4 years to help severe chronic health issues which include(d) some of the worst possible anxiety. I also used to have thyroid imbalance and terrible adrenal fatigue which disappeared with this supplement. I used to take 4 caps a day for years, but now I take about 2 a day and not every day. Happy to answer more if needed. Lots of info online. Generally, things that take a little longer to "kick in" are going to have more steady effects, so that you will still have benefit when no longer on the supplement, or if only taking sporadically. Ashwagandha often has mild immediate effects, but it's over a period of a few to several weeks that effects become really obvious and positive. Check out the reviews and search for "anxiety." Best wishes.

u/zbobby1990 · 20 pointsr/Nootropics

Purely anecdotal, but I've been taking it daily (KSM-66, 900mg) for around seven months now and I've definitely noticed a reduction in everyday anxiety.

It hasn't done much for my social anxiety, but that nagging voice, that "WHAT IF THIS HAPPENS?!" voice that plagued me throughout the day, has been severely reduced, which is nice.

u/Re_Re_Think · 20 pointsr/vegan

You're such a great person for taking what your nephew said seriously, and not dismissing it just because he is a child, and for being curious and looking into it, rather than ignoring it.


> Tried 3 times to go vegan but I tend to feel weak and tired with occasional dizziness after about 30 to 60 days

Take some time to learn about vegan nutrition, it's very important. Here is a beginner's guide, and a much more comprehensive guide for very deep questions.


    If you don't know where to start, here is a short list of cheap supplements you can buy online if you want to:

  • Daily Multivitamin containing B12 and D.
  • DHA/EPA supplement. Take daily.

    For symptoms like dizziness, be sure you're especially getting enough calories (whole plant foods, especially fruits and vegetables, tend to have lower calorie density than many of the other foods we eat, so be sure to eat a variety of food groups), Vitamin B12, and iron (especially if you're a woman who menstruates or if you have a family history of anemia). If it persists, another thing you could do might be talking to a doctor or registered dietitian.

    > I want to do it for good this time and not quit!

    Just start with learning one thing at a time (it could be a single recipe you cook, item in a restaurant you order, or getting in the habit of reading labels or thinking about whether what you pick up is vegan or not, etc.), and practice it until it becomes second nature. Then move onto the next thing.

    Eventually you'll build up a bunch of options you'll know are vegan.

    For even more information, see:

  • Vegan outreach websites, groups or societies: Vegan Outreach, The Vegan Society, Veganuary, etc.

    or if you have any questions, just ask.
u/Armageddon85 · 13 pointsr/Nootropics

Wish I would have known about this before I started taking Adderall! I've noticed the huge difference in on off days when I'm super lazy and not motivated beyond my old levels of motivation before I started taking Adderall.

Just got a bottle from Amazon. Here's a risk free, non-affiliate link to amazon for you lazies out there:

u/YahwehTheDevil · 11 pointsr/DebateAVegan

>it's like people are playing some kind of game, and they just want you to join their side

I completely understand this, and it makes it difficult to figure out what's true. I do think that vegans sometimes stretch the truth in order to try to win converts, but I look at that as a misguided act of compassion, because the new vegans are going to learn eventually and then they may very well give up.

Personally, I believe that we can absolutely be healthy on a plant-based diet as long as we supplement B12, D3, and omega-3 fatty acids.The first two are incredibly cheap: This supplement costs $20 for a three-month supply of B12, on top of giving a host of other useful nutrients in case you're missing anything, and for $12 you can buy eight months' worth of D3.

As for omega-3 fatty acids, they are unfortunately on the more expensive side. A lot of vegans say that we can get sufficient EPA and DHA by eating ALA, such as from flaxseed and chia, and converting it ourselves. While there was a promising study saying that vegans convert ALA to EPA and DHA more efficiently that omnis, flax and chia on their own are probably not sufficient.

At the recommended dosages, supplementing omega-3 FAs will cost you about $15 a month. I usually buy Ovega-3, although I recently tried Tesla and liked it as well. We probably need more than 500g a day, since we're meant to consume a somewhat even ratio of omega-3 and omega-6, which would push the cost up to $30 a month or higher. I take three grams a day for mental health, although I doubt that most people would need that much.

As far as needing eggs and dairy to be healthy, I suspect that that's the work of animal industries spreading fear, uncertainty, and doubt. Dairies have taken a huge hit lately as people switch to plant-based milk (now with 100% less pus!), and I think they'd gladly lie to the public in order to tourniquet their losses. For instance, we were all told that we need milk in order to have strong bones, right? But that's absolutely not true. First-world countries have higher rates of osteoporosis. And while I'm not sure how credible this is, the great Yourofsky believed that it was because animal protein is acidic, and to counteract that acidity our bodies draw calcium from our bones.

I'm going to wrap this up before I ramble any more, but in short, take B12 D12 and omega-3s and you will be all set!

*While it wasn't dairy, /r/vegan recently had a laughably transparent article about someone who was arguing not only that it was okay to wear fur, but that it was actually a
moral imperative* to do so. It was such a moving piece that I immediately drove to a mink farm and snapped those little fuckers' necks myself, because god damn it, I'm a patriot

u/Mystereon · 10 pointsr/fantasybaseball

I didn't give anyone false information. Yahoo said the leagues will open on 1/26/2017.

They however did not specify what time - but as others alluded - in years past it has come in the afternoon.

Perhaps you should go buy some of these

u/erusko · 10 pointsr/vegetarianketo

lots of good info in that for those who say veggie keto isn't possible!

one thing i should mention though is that it looks like you don't use a food diary and this is something i recommend everybody to use for at least the first 2 weeks to get the hang of what to eat and how much of certain foods/macronutrients you can eat.

for example, it seems based on the example of your breakfast/lunch/dinner, you aren't getting enough protein and your fats may range on the high side. you can totally still lose weight like this, but you may be unknowingly sacrificing a lot of muscle along the way. i know the maxim of r/keto is high fats, moderate protein, low carb but the truth of the matter is the more fats you take in, the higher your calorie intake is and thus, slower weight loss. the best way too look at keto for me is to aim for 20 carbs or less, get your minimum protein amount to avoid muscle loss to (LBM in kg*1.5) which in my case is 120g protein and as low as fats as you can manage. for me, that would be 71g fat if i want 1200 calories a day. if i'm being particularly weak-willed that day, i'll up the fats to 104g fat and that's my absolute max because then i'll hit 1500 calories.

now you might look at this and say, wait a sec, don't you have high protein, moderate fat and low carb? that was my first thought when i was figuring out my diet but then i read a little closer and realized you need to base your diet on energy (read: calories) from these macronutrients. for example, each gram of fat is 9 calories. each gram of protein is 4 calories. using the above info, 120g protein is 480 calories and 71g fat is 639 calories (or 104g fat is 936 calories). based on calories, your fat content is much higher than your protein.

also, remember that r/keto can get away with constantly suggesting to raise the amount of fat in your diet because their main sources of protein are meats that are much lower in fats than your vegetarian counterparts. we don't have the luxury. the more protein we consume, we inadvertantly consume more fats. we vegetarians can't do this and need to watch our intake of avocados, sour cream, butter, etc...

sorry op, i got a little side-tracked in the middle of this comment and felt that the vegketo community might need some more clarification on certain things so i kept on writing. anyway, a lot of info in your guide is still pretty good! here's one more suggestion for people who don't know much about vitamins. even if you're not on keto, you should be taking a good multi (unless your diet is very balanced, and even then, i'd be skeptical!) these are by far the best ones i've ever had, and i've taken dozens of different brands. i've done some extreme manual labor in my day too and i definitely noticed the difference if i had one of these or not. regular multivitamins for meat eaters don't compare to this one for vegos.

u/tsanity · 10 pointsr/todayilearned

Oh my god, this stuff is amazing. You can actually buy these in pill form (totally legal) online, if you don't want to cultivate them yourself/can't find them locally.

Me and my friends went flavour-tripping one day. We took one miracle berry fruit pill each, then ate and drank everything from lemon, white vinegar, oranges, limes, sour skittles, beer and any other bitter/sour food we could get our hands on. Doesn't last long, but it was great fun. The lemon, lime and orange were super sweet, the white vinegar tasted like apple juice and the beer was unreal.
Amazon has them on sale, if you're ever keen to try it.

u/Fexler · 9 pointsr/rawdenim

I'm house-sitting for my parents tonight so…
Party at my place

I have these, so bring some lemons and shit.

I mentioned it in the hat thread a while ago, but since I posted here about it originally I'll update:

That wool poncho my grandmother was making has been finished for a while, and it's great.
Like I told /u/JammySTB it'll change your life. I just wander around my house in boxers and my poncho now, I quite literally live in it. It's like having that blanket with arm holes you always wanted.
It's kinda like a respectable snuggie.

*not hating on snuggies, don't want to offend /r/rawdenim's snuggers

Also, I'm getting into old samurai cinema, what should I watch?

u/stefanielaine · 6 pointsr/fasting

If you're just feeling "meh," push through - you'll be glad you did. If you're feeling actively bad (dizzy, nauseous) try an electrolyte supplement (I love these). If you've taken electrolytes but you still feel actively bad, stop your fast and eat something. :)

Good luck!

I've had a good experience with Deva Vegan Vitamins.

They cost $18, but it's for 6 months worth of vitamins. You're paying $0.70 per week to keep your body health. I'd say it's a worthwhile investment.

u/Zehet · 6 pointsr/vegan

shit, i have vitafusion multivite vitamins - are they not vegan?? what multivitamin should i get instead?

just ordered these I didn't mind giving up meat, but now that I have lost my chew-able vitamins, I feel completely empty :( couldn't find any chewable vegan multivitamins :( someone needs to make one asap. i like chewable vitamins more than swallowing a pill :(

Electrolyte supplements. I take about half of one before running/working out, or if I know I'll be drinking a lot of water during Adderall days.

u/BlubberyGiraffe · 5 pointsr/pokemongo
u/WamZz · 5 pointsr/trees

I have this, but you can just empty any pill capsule. I just filled one with ABV one morning and ate breakfast about an hour after I took it. Another hour goes by and I'm way higher than I've ever been. Make sure you do it when you have nothing to do that day lol.

I'm sure the amount you use would vary from person to person. I used .3g. Some people use like .5 and so on. Guess it depends on your individual tolerance or metabolism? idk.

Or you can just throw a bunch in between a PB&J. I never did it but I know people that have.

u/anachronic · 5 pointsr/vegan

> B12, which is primarily an animal-produced vitamin

Actually, it's produced by bacteria, not animals.

DEVA makes an awesome vegan multi that's loaded with B12. That one pill is all you need unless a doctor has prescribed something extra.

Dunno about in Europe but Amazon sells Jarrow's Ashwagandha

u/SemiPornoStatuette · 4 pointsr/vegan

We just take these.

No issues. Sometimes there's a little too much B-2 in there + your regular diet, and you pee bright (and I mean neon) yellow, but it's not harmful. It's just how your body gets rid of it.

We downgraded to only taking these in our house, and so far nobody's having any issues (and my SO gets blood tested a LOT due to unrelated issues)

Edit: We were doing this + B-12 shots, and it turns out we were getting way too much B-12. Which isn't going to do anything but literally piss money away.

u/notzak · 4 pointsr/vegan

Okay, here it is

HOWEVER, I would strongly urge you to consider tracking your nutrition with for a week honestly and seeing whether you actually have deficiencies before going straight to supplementation. Iron and calcium are abundant in a vegan diet (beans and nuts and seeds and leafy greens and tofu!), and too much iron is not a good thing if you supplement on top!

After tracking with cronometer, I've found that the only thing I really need is B12 (which I get a daily deva sublingual) and a vegan D3 for the wintertime.

u/nope_nic_tesla · 4 pointsr/vegetarian

I take this one. It focuses mainly on nutrients that people tend to get less of with plant foods rather than trying to pack in 100% daily value of every vitamin and mineral possible. Here is a breakdown of its nutrient content. Like others say you don't really need a really broad spectrum multivitamin (the ones with shit like 1500% vitamin A are nonsense), you should be able to get most other things easily from your diet!

u/DeplorableWolverine · 4 pointsr/Nootropics

Zinc orotate is very inexpensive and seems to be effective.

Zinc carnosine isn’t very expensive and can definitely be taken on an empty stomach. I take it with NAC.

If you eat a lot of red meat you don’t need to supplement zinc.

u/CrypticEntity · 3 pointsr/vegan

So for vitamins and supplements.

And then for eggs and brands it's pretty easy and skim through. Many brands say "contains eggs and milk" So, you can skim through and read what each has.

Some people take a shot of b12 but, many foods such as cereal and non dairy milks are fortified too!

You can easily find vegan cookies such as Oreos and others. It really depends on where you are located as well.

I would drink daily soy milk to keep up calcium but, you can eat greens which contain iron and calcium. Actually most multi Vitamins that are vegan contain iron. So, you won't need really a separate iron supplement.

Anything else just ask me! 😊

Whether you're vegan, vegetarian, paleo, omnivoric, whatever, if you can't eat well take a multi-vitamin. I implore you, don't let your girlfriend or yourself take any chances with your health, especially when traveling.

Yes you do! You need to keep up with your B vitamin intake though. I personally take this multivitamin and I think it's great. Another thing to look for is Omega 3. It can be found in nuts and greens, but if you're really wanting some you can buy vegan softgels.

u/juiceguy · 3 pointsr/Juicing

When it comes to nutrients, I first strive to see if I can get everything I need from the foods (juice) I eat. With a juice diet high in greens, along with the handy analysis available from Wolfram Alpha, I can ensure that I am getting a good spread of all of my amino acids, all essential vitamins and minerals, and even check my Omega 3-6 ratios. The only nutrient completely missing in a juice based diet would be vitamin B-12, and I take care of this with a daily sublingual vitamin.. As an added level of precaution, I am also taking a daily multivitamin, and that's it. I prefer to keep things as simple and uncomplicated as I can and I'm already getting more than enough protein as it is.

u/Lascielle · 3 pointsr/vegan

You might really like a tool like Cronometer. It breaks down the daily micronutrients pretty well. You can log multivitamins on there too. I take half of one of these every day and come pretty close to most of the recommended daily values

u/Sir_Tits_a_lot · 3 pointsr/vegan

If you're relying on nooch, just make sure it's fortified. Not all of them have B12. And it is because of fortification that they have these nutrients. Also just so you know, Deva tiny tablets are on sale on Amazon from $11.07 to $5.99. Stock up.

Exactly! From the beginning of this I have said that it NEVER hurts to be ready for the worst. Where I live we get a lot of earth quakes and I am sure within my life we'll get a nasty one. Our building codes are VERY strict and I don't fear that my place will tip over, but the power grid in the US is VERY old and in need of repair badly.

We lost power out here two years ago over about 2 days and people were freaked out. What happens when something really bad happens and it's a week or two weeks with no power, no gas, the food starts dwindling and people are running around like crazy trying to get food to eat.

I'll have my MRE's not the best food in the world, but damn I won't starve to death. I think about prepping hardly ever and I need to get my self re situated and make sure I have everything back together again. I even made a list here for people who were new to prepping.

The fact of the matter is that the subreddit for the most part seems to be under the illusion that if you don't live in West Africa you are 100% safe, which is a dangerous thought to have.

As /u/snorgsniffer said yesterday

>When confronted with dire circumstances beyond their control, humans predictably engage in one of the following behaviors:

> Denial
> Distraction
> * Drugs / Drink (altered state of consciousness)

>All of those things result in still another "D"... delay
It's clear that both the victims and potential responders are engaging in "D behaviors" at this time.

>My point? It is almost impossible to change someone's mind using logical argument when their conclusion is an irrational, emotional one. They just burrow deeper into their chosen coping behavior when forced to look even more closely at the thing which frightened them so badly in the first place.

>Though not directly news related, I think understanding the psychological underpinnings of the outbreak is important when interpreting the nuts & bolts side of it. This sub seems to me like a good place to see it discussed. There are some really bright people here.

A lot of people are giving voice to their coping mechanisms of denial to make themselves feel better. I don't think their attitude will change until the numbers reach upwards of 50,000 and the people start fleeing and spreading this crap all over the globe.

u/scotty-fitzgerald · 3 pointsr/HaircareScience

I had a huge hair loss problem and it brought me a lot of anxiety and stress because as a 23-24 year old female who used to have really thick, healthy hair it was disheartening. My hair is thankfully back to normal but it took a while to get it back to peak health. I actually got a haircut this weekend and the hairstylist commented on how healthy and full my hair is. When I told her that I worried about my hair thinning out and hair loss she said that what the last thing I should worry about. But little did she know what had been happening the last two years (I had never gone to that salon before). I also want to add that I’ve been dealing with a flakey scalp for a while now. I would make it worse by picking at it and sometimes causing scabs. The flakey scalp caused problems for my hair because you can’t have good hair without a healthy scalp. In fact, many time hair loss is due to dandruff since it weakens the hair follicles. I recently found a few products that have made a big difference.

This is what worked for me:

  1. I brush my hair with a bamboo wide comb (I think it’s this one , I got it from Whole Foods) before I shower and don’t brush or run my fingers through my hair at all in the shower. I believe wet hair is weaker so it’s best to not comb/brush in the shower.

  2. I take biotin pills everyday. I’m sure any brand works so just look at reviews.

  3. I take Ashwagandha . I linked the one I take. I’ve been taking it for over a year now, two pills twice a day as directed. I think this and biotin made a huge difference in my hair health.

  4. I wash my hair almost daily. I just alternate between using reg shampoo/conditioner and an apple cider vinegar rinse (I use the one by dpHUE ). The ACV has made a huge difference in my scalp. I can’t say enough good things about it. I also have the scrub, which is why linked the bundle that has the two of them for cheaper, which I liked but it was a bit messy to use. If you have build up on your scalp like your dermatologist said, the scrub will help. The rinse is amazing and I also use the leave in conditioner from the same line. It’s a spray leave in conditioner which I like because I don’t like touching my hair too much when it’s wet and weak. My boyfriend also had a flakey scalp and he started using the DpHUE rinse as well and he says it made a huge difference for him: his hair isn’t as flakey or itchy.

  5. I use a cotton towel to dry my hair and I love it. This is the one I have , I have two just in case one is in the wash. I like it a lot. I put my hair in it as soon as I get out of the shower and set a 10-15 minute timer, then I take it off and spray leave in conditioner. Not touching your hair too much is best because then you aren’t tugging at your scalp or accidental pulling your hair off.

  6. There is such a thing as doing too much. I would recommend maybe sticking to basics and using a minimalistic hair routine with gentle ingredients.

  7. I’m not too sure how well they work because I haven’t used them myself but I recently saw two different hair density serums that are very well reviewed. One is by a brand called Grow Gorgeous and the other is by The Ordinary. Maybe try one of these and see how they help? Definitely don’t do both and don’t overpower your scalp with a lot of products, a healthy scalp leads to healthy hair. I’m planning on getting the one from The Ordinary this weekend. A lot of the reviews on Sephora said that it made a huge difference with their scalp health and that it got rid of their dandruff so read the reviews and see if this is something you think would help you too.

  8. I just bought a shower water filter for hard water, gets here Saturday! I can’t believe I didn’t know about this sooner. We have super hard water and I’m pretty sure it’s what’s been causing havoc on my scalp. If you look up “hard water and scalp problems” or “hard water and hair loss” a lot of information comes up.

  9. I get my hair trimmed every other month.

    Hope this helps!

No, you're doing the right thing by asking.

I just take one every single day. Been doing it for months now.

It's an adoptogen so it takes about a week before you actually notice it working. I don't cycle because i love being on it too much. Havent really noticed much of a tolerance. Just gotten used to it!

This was the best value for money I could find. I'm in the UK. Might give it a shot.

u/dragonbubbles · 3 pointsr/kratom

Hi... you can find empty capsules on Amazpn. Sizes differ. Size "00" is usually the standard. Size "0" will be smaller and size '"000" is the largest but they are way huge. I will try to list some information more targeted to your situation.

Finding what works will take some time, patience, and trial and error but I think that it is worth it. Many times people starting out think that it is not 'working' at first. Some of that is about managing expectations. Your best course of action is to try a handful of different strains and keep notes - dosages, effects, pros & cons, etc. As others have said, get a scale and read about figuring out dosages

u/OldUncleEli · 2 pointsr/leagueoflegends

You could also look into some over the counter supplements like this one. I haven't tried it, but it has good reviews and there are dozens of similar products. Aside from medicine, I think the only way to get over anxiety is experience and a change in attitude(convince yourself you're just playing a normal game). The latter is easier said than done, and if you aren't getting less anxious as you play in more tournaments, I really think you should go talk to a doctor. You have nothing to lose by doing it, and it could potentially save your career (which is one that millions of people would love to have). I hope it works out for you!

There is an alternative medicine theory of GERD and acid reflux being caused by low stomach acid, not high. The thinking goes that the esophageal sphincter is control by stomach PH, and when eat and your stomach acid is too low your sphincter does not close tight enough, so combined with bloating and belching this allows acid to creep up into the esophagus . This can be caused by stomach bacteria or some other unknown mechanism. ( maybe this is why diet changes help )

This is why the counter intuitive folk remedy of apple cider vingear works. You increase your acidity of your esophageal sphincter closes nice and tight preventing further reflux. There is a supplement called Betaine HCL that is like acid in a capsule, so you can prevent the burn on the way down of drinking acid things like vinegar. The reviews are filled with some positive outcomes but I wish there was some study to see if this theory was actually true.

As a side note how does taking PPIs and reduction of stomach acid effect the ability to digest protein and therefore gains? I figured that it would always be a detriment but was surprised to hear so many people in this thread talk about taking them frequently

u/hVnL · 2 pointsr/ibs

Okay, my "theory" on what COULD help you maybe (I am not a doctor btw, just a person who reads a lot!)

You have bloating, okay.

Bloating is the result of fermentation of food by bacteria. Air does not magically "appear" out of nowhere inside you, bacteria produce these gasses.

Since you have been diagnosed with SIBO this confirms that this is true here. Excess fermentation of foods inside you by bacteria.
Then we have the next question; why do I have so many bacteria inside my stomach/small intestines?!?!

A possible explanation, and in my opinion a very likely one; long-term ppi usage. We start with the basics; why do you have stomach acid? You have this to kill bacteria that you ingest and to help digest food! Most of your small intestines/stomach shouldn't contain barely any bacteria because the ph is very low there, they shouldn't be allowed there. When you chronically "remove" stomach acid, you can have a situation of an overgrowth because your stomach acid/bile acids are not longer keeping your stomach and small intestines sterile.
In addition to killing the bacteria by stomach acid, it also helps you digest food, if you digest this properly there is less "food" for the pathogens in your small intestines. But if you have a lot of undigested food there they will go crazy fermenting them there!

I think you should consider taking some betaine hcl to make your stomach more acidic. But, before you do, perhaps ask your doctor or read a lot about it online! You can read people's experiences with these problems in amazon reviews for example and by checking google "low stomach acid". Also always be very careful with betaine hcl and any other supplement, always start low dose to see how you respond, you also want to make sure you have no stomach ulcers!

A link to betaine hcl:

A link to a book about low stomach acid:

A link to a video about low stomach acid:

Look into the reviews on amazon, try to google as much information as possible, learn from it, and try to think what could help you! I think these things are definately worth looking into for you. I really hope it will help you, good luck!!

This daily multiple is cheap as hell and has your iodine/selenium/iron covered.

K2, I use a supplement, they're also cheap. I'd like to ferment my own natto, but it just isn't feasible atm. Also natto is an acquired taste that I'm fighting a losing battle on.

Most fortified milks have 25% Vitamin A, so you're good for a good chunk of your requirement there. If you ever do any genetic testing like 23andMe, or AncestryDNA you can look at your specific SNP for the conversion of beta carotene -> Vit A. I'm of irish descent and my conversion is 25% lower than normal. Just means I eat two sticks of carrots or like half a sweet potato instead of a quarter. No one has a completely malfunctioning enzyme, it just performs less than optimally in some, so just double up your beta carotene containing veggies and take a multi with Vit A or beta carotene in it.

u/throwaway500k · 2 pointsr/vegan

Ok, sure - I've listed a pretty typical day below, including supplements.


u/floopaloop · 2 pointsr/WomensHealth

Your multi actually doesn't have enough B12. If you're vegan, you should be taking a supplement with 100 micrograms of B12 every single day. Yes, it will make your pee a bright color, that is normal and fine. There aren't any negative effects of getting too much B12, besides a small number of people getting acne from it.

If you're looking for a good vegan multivitamin, try Deva's.

For how long were you only taking a B12 vitamin once a month? If it was more than a year or so, you might have or be on your way to a deficiency.

u/TimelessNY · 2 pointsr/vandwellers

I do not identify as vegan, but can safely say you will be eating a lot of beans/lentils, fresh vegetables and rice if you are not lazy. Expensive, processed crap if you are lazy.

A word of advice is to carry spices/seasonings and take a multivitamin.

u/ThrowinStacks · 2 pointsr/veganfitness

You didn't mention which multivitamin you are taking but I would recommend this one. It's inexpensive, high quality, and vegan.

u/veganatheist · 2 pointsr/IAmA

As another raw foodist, let me give you guys another take on this. On a typical day, I'll start will a huge-ass smoothie (Kale, bananas, OJ, blueberries, wheat germ, water, filling a full 64oz Vitamix pitcher) that I will split up between breakfast and lunch. If I'm extra hungry, I'll eat some fruit here and there as well.

By dinner time, I'll be wanting a big salad (Big = 1 lb kale + 1 lb spinach + a large tomato + 1/2 avocado + a dressing made from tahini, garlic and lemon).

This may not seem like much, but have a look at the nutritional breakdown on Wolfram Alpha.

In the example above, I am getting 84 grams of protein, with good coverage in all the essential amino acids, sufficient Omega-3 and Omega-6 (in favorable proportions), huge amounts of most of my vitamins and minerals. My shortcomings here are vitamins D and B-12. I take a daily vegan multivitamin, a vegan D3 supplement and a B-12 supplement, just to make sure I'm not missing out on anything.

For exercise, I ride my bike an hour each way to work and back M-F. Between the food and the cycling, I stay in pretty good shape.

u/dmikalova · 2 pointsr/vegproblems

If they have D₃ then they're also not vegan, although there are some specific vegan D₃ vitamins from mushrooms. Also, why not go for Deva, made by vegans for vegans?

u/nice_t_shirt · 2 pointsr/vegan

Some are, but a lot (if not most) aren't vegan. A really common animal ingredient is the capsule itself - a gelatin capsule. Other things are amino acids (often derived from hair, feathers, etc), lactose (milk sugar), stuff like that.

You can find plenty of vegan vitamin D and multivitamins.

u/melknin · 2 pointsr/vegan

I get the Deva multivitamin (which also has 10x daily B12) with Amazon's subscribe and save (it's a 6-month supply so I've set it up to send more every 6 months). Highly recommended.

It's not that hard to go vegetarian or pescatarian in my experience. I more or less switched to a vegan/pescatarian mix over three years ago, and my cravings are basically only ever for cheese.

I recommend that you look into Asian and Indian cuisine, which is often naturally vegetarian or vegan anyways. If you want recommendations I'd be glad to suggest some of my staples.

You can also just take a daily vitamin for your other worry. I use these, which cost you $0.10 a day. It's just once a day which is easy. They smell awful though, and make your piss neon yellow for an hour or two, which is..interesting?

u/IcyElemental · 2 pointsr/soylent

It's not quite as simple as a multivitamin alone, but it's a good start. A good but cheap one would be these:

I'd say take 1/3 - 1/2 of a pill per day with your Joylent, and add a small pinch of salt to each meal. You may still be a little under on electrolytes, but instead of worrying about it initially, see if you experience signs of a deficiency (or ideally get bloodwork done before starting on the diet and a month or two afterwards).

u/SparklingLimeade · 2 pointsr/soylent

I was hoping someone with better ideas and more relevant information would show up but that hasn't happened so here I go.

The product you linked is a powdered multivitamin supplement for athletes. It's probably pretty good but it's also not very cost effective. If you do any supplementation you'll want to use cheaper multivitamin pills.

Because protein powder isn't an option anything you do will look as much like a dietary plan as it will anything else. Is your goal convenience and health? How much time to you spend shopping and cooking already? With some research you could probably work out a simple meal plan that's reasonably healthy and easy to make. It all depends on what foods are available and how much nutritional data you can put together to make a balanced diet.

The easiest thing to do will probably be to take a good multivitamin and find a convenient food that can be eaten most of the time while using other food to fill in the nutritional gaps. Oatmeal or some other porridge. Beans and rice. I feel very unhelpful offering this advice but it's my best idea from what you've told me.

u/gladudontknowme · 2 pointsr/homeless

I'm no doctor, but I've had ulcers. Here's how I healed my ulcers (also, this regimen is safe even if you don't have ulcers, it can only help, IMO).

  1. Kick the Prilosec -- OTC medicines ultimately did not work to heal my stomach. They just treated the symptoms. Instead of Prilosec, Take some Deglycerized licorice (DGL) 20 minutes prior to every meal. I like these.. These should sooth your stomach, and stop the burning.

  2. You need to follow a lower-fat, lower-protein diet, until your stomach heals (and possibly, indefinitely, depending on what your body is capable of handling). Lean meats, complex carbs, veggies, and select fruits (i.e. bananas and apples). This diet will allow your stomach to recover quickly. For the first week, you could try a really bland diet to speed healing, such as the BRAT diet. Bananas, white rice, applesauce, and toast. That will take a lot of the strain off of your stomach, pancreas, and liver. DO NOT eat this diet for longer than a week, it is not nourishing enough. Just until your stomach begins to feel better, then ease back in some root vegetables, and lean meats. Be sure to cook your veggies thoroughly, to make it easier to digest. Also, make sure to eat more frequently -- do not fast or take long breaks between meals. If this means eating smaller meals, then so be it.

  3. Zinc Carnosine has helped me and others heal from ulcers completely. It takes several weeks to begin working, but it helps the stomach repair. You can get some here. Read up about it, too -- it is used commonly in Japan for ulcers.

/r/treedibles/ is a great resource, I started there, and have tested through trial and error. Here's a quick recipe for CBD caps.

  • Buy some Sour Tsunami (Usually the highest CBD we can get in Whatcom County - with the lowest THC%) I typically get .05% THC and 12-14% CBD
  • Break it up (the flower) into popcorn size chunks, put it into a pie plate / dish, cover with aluminum foil, preheat oven to 240, and bake for 40-45mins
  • Remove from oven and let rest for 15-20 mins - This is Decarboxilation
  • Grab your handy electric coffee grinder - and grind the crap out of your decarb'd flower
  • In your crockpot (for 1/2oz of flower use 1/2 a bottle of organic coconut oil and a full bottle for a full oz of flower... you can play around with the amounts and find what works best for you). Start warming coconut oil with 1 - 2 TBsp's of Lecithin... stir until occasionally until the Lecithin is almost completely dissolved.
  • Add ground flower from coffee grinder and set your crockpot to Low - for 3hrs, stir every 20-30mins.
  • Now your house should smell AMAZING ;) and you have a liquid that you can either strain through a tight mesh or cheesecloth, or just leave it - again your call, experiment, find what works best for you.
  • Head over to Amazon and pick up 1k empty 00 capsules and a Walgreens True Easy Oral Syringe
  • Use the syringe to fill the long side of an empty 00 cap, pop the lid on, wait to hear the 'click' - Then I put them into a ramekin and into the freezer so that the coconut oil will reconstitute.

    Also, if you don't mind higher THC in your CBD med's - check out the Girl Scout Cookies CBD as it's about 5% THC but a whopping 23% CBD!!! When I'm making my own personal batches I add some high % Keif and what not too. And last but not least, start with 1 cap, and wait at LEAST 2hrs before trying more... once you figure out what works for you and your pain levels... it's pretty freaking awesome! Oh, and I get about 150 caps per 1/2oz - compared to what they're selling in the stores 10 caps for $40 - it's much more bang for your buck if you DIY!

    (Tools needed: Crockpot, grinder, Lecithin, 00 caps, syringe, some good CBD flower, and a bit of patience)

    TL;DR - This is how I make my pain meds at home.

u/Mcgizzle1883 · 2 pointsr/trees

2% is NOT high’s extremely low! I’d also recommend to use a heavy indica strain given what you’ve reported since you’re looking for more calming effects vs. high energy. Your specific condition could be the cause of how you’re not feeling any effects, so it’s probably best to significantly bump up your intake.

Buy distillate syringes ($65 at Surterra) and just make infused coconut oil. Distillate is up to 90% thc and will go a long way....Plus you can truly control your dosages by concentrating them as much as you’d like.

All you have to do is heat up unrefined coconut oil in a Pyrex container, put the distillate into the hot oil and start stirring for a few minutes. Once it emulsifies it’s ready to use. The distillate is very thick, so put the syringe into hot water for a minute So that it becomes less viscous and then remove the cap to dispense it.

Example - let’s say there’s 850mg of thc in one distillate syringe and you use 50ml of coconut oil.

850/50 = 17mg of thc per ml of oil. You aren’t just limited to using one distillate syringe - feel free to use more to make your infused oil more potent.

Buy a blunt tip luer lock syringe with ml measurements and then simply put it into your own empty capsules. You can buy the syringe and the capsules on amazon for very cheap. You can also use these blunt tip syringes to measure your coconut oil to ensure he dosages will be right. Links to the items you need below

You can also dispense the distillate straight into your own cartridges and vape it, but be sure to use only a ceramic cartridge. Do not include any coconut oil into your vape...just distillate

I think the memory improvement is from other stuff I am taking at night before I go to bed. The modafinil is strictly a caffeine replacement for me, which also helps me avoid sugar, in the energy drinks.


  • 100mg Modvigil Modafinil - modafinilcat - when I wake up, takes about 30 minutes for me to notice the effects
    These next two are for muscle health, taken in the morning with 32 ounces of water
  • 750mg Creatine Monohydrate by NOW Link:

  • 750mg Beta-Alanine by NOW Link: ( I like the way this makes my skin tingle )


  • 2000mg Now Foods Glycine 1000mg, Capsules, 100-Count by Now Foods Link: - helps me sleep and is supposed to help your body process stored fat cells, in other words it should help burn fat

  • 200mg Now Foods L-Theanine Veg Capsules, 200 mg, 120 Count by Now Foods Link: - helps with sleep, and calm clear thoughts

  • 100mg Douglas Laboratories ® - Chelated Magnesium - 100 Tabs by Douglas Labs Link: - apparently according to my dr, and chiro the modafinil can deplete magnesium from your system and cause sore muscle or bone aches, I take this to counter that and dont have that issue anymore with the modafinil

  • 1 Now Foods True Calm Amino Relaxer by NOW Link:

  • 1 500mg NOW Foods Choline and Inositol, 100 Capsules / 500mg by Now Foods Link:

  • 0.5 Rainbow Light Men's One Multivitamin by Rainbow Light Link: - I take a half at night otherwise I get an upset stomach and I feel like I am peeing it all out if I take the whole thing.

    If anyone could suggest changes or something I might add, I am welcome to suggestions. I mostly made this list for myself so I can see what I am taking each day.
u/cuckooforcoconut · 1 pointr/fantasyfootball

Taking steroids doesnt make you invincible. You still need time to heal injuries, and overworking the muscle will injure it again.

And we dont know what Jeffery took. It might have been anabolic steroids, it could have been HGH, it could have been a stimulant like Ephedrine.

Hell, it could have been something like Animal Pak (it used to be banned in the NFL), which is sold as a multivitamin - you dont need a prescription, you dont need to be 18, and youll find it overpriced at your local GNC. Or Sudafed, which the NFL requires you to get a prescription from NFL medical personnel before taking, even though its over-the-counter cold medicine.

And click this link for the NFLPA - Right up top there is a warning - a EZ Weight Loss products have been found to be contaminated with a substance banned by the NFL. So if a player asked their NFL-endorsed trainer if they could take the product, the trainer knowing all the rules looked at the product, determined that it was fine, but then later its found that the product was contaminated and you just tested positive for PED, and you get treated as if you took anabolic steroids.

I guess thats my long way of saying just because Jeffrey failed a PED test doesnt mean his hamstrings are invincible.

Would you recommend betaine HCL? I typically eat very sparingly but when I go to a buffet I can't help myself and would go all out, probably eating twice the amount that I usually have. This in turn slows down my digestion process and wrecks havoc to my running schedule the next morning. I figured by increasing the acidity level and digestive enzyme it would speed up the digestion process.

u/meat-head · 1 pointr/keto

First of all, I was on Prilosec for YEARS before Keto. When I started Keto, I went off it it.

AT FIRST, IT SUCKED BADLY! I had terrible heartburn for like 2 weeks. I used tums to take the edge off.

BUT, after that, it got way way better. Now, I don't take ANYTHING.

So, patience is what you need.

For me, I'm convinced that it was LOW acid causing my problems. So, I did supplement for a while with hydrochloric acid. I used this I used this especially with meals. Especially especially meals with protein.

I think it helped get things moving again. But, like I said, it took a couple of weeks. Maybe almost a month. But, it went away. I still get minor heartburn occasionally. But, it's so minor that I don't even take anything.

u/esteban69dingus · 1 pointr/xxketo

So I've dabbled in fat fasts (specifically the Bulletproof RFLP) and eat zero carb at a 60/40-70/30 fat/protein ratio and I've found that it happens as you're becoming fat adapted. Even somebody who isn't doing keto in hardcore mode is going to have some kind of reaction to their digestive needs totally changing. Try Betaine HCl tablets!

u/rickearthc137 · 1 pointr/fasting

Congrats on starting your fast! I've only been sub'd a few weeks but there are accountability threads all over the palace. Feel free to start your own too. It's totally not frowned upon having an accountability partner.

One of the first things you'll likely want to do is figure out what your goal is and announce it. The flair on this sub is really good for that.

The main thing is make sure on your fast days that you drink enough water that your stomach's stretch receptors will signal you that your belly is full. You may not want to "eat normally" on your eating days--if you can do HFLC (High Fat Low Carb) your week will go a lot smoother--you can check out /r/keto for info on this. One recipe that comes to mind is the infamous "Fat Head Pizza". I haven't made it yet but it's supposed to be delicious and the dough is quite versatile so you can use it as a bread replacement for pretty much anything.

If you haven't already, check out the Jason Fung videos on YT. I've also (just this weekend) stumbled upon normal guy "Butter Bob" Biggs and have watched many of his YT videos on HFLC--I usually play his videos at 2x speed.

Since you're eating alternate days, you'll likely not need to worry about supplementing, but you may want to pick up some electrolyte pills or liquid electrolyte (Walmart) in case your muscles feel crampy. Other alternatives are Sea Salt or "Nu-Salt". You just eat a teaspoon of it.

If you're interested in the mental/spiritual side of things, you might like some of these:

Sagaara's Health Through Breathing - Pranayama. There's a free version with ads. This is a yogic breathing app, it's simple to use and highly addicting. It works by having you maintain interval breathing, e.g. Breathe in - Pause - Breathe Out - Pause to different counts. While doing it, keep your throat open (this is quite difficult). Following the sounds and clearing your mind you can do this while meditating or as meditation.

If you're worried about hitting your goal, I would recommend Mark Divine's The Way of the SEAL: Think Like an Elite Warrior to Lead and Succeed. This guy runs a consulting service/program for folks who want to go through elite military programs SEALS, DELTA, etc. While those programs have tremendously high washout rates, his graduates complete them in the 75+% rate or some similarly ridiculously high number.

If you want to make big life changes, I've heard good things about "Self Authoring". I've bought their package (it's cheap $30) and intend on doing it as part of this fast. It's structured journaling that's supposed to help you resolve whatever is behind you and figure out what you actually want moving forward. I haven't yet started it, but it seemed worth $30. It's from Prof. Jordan Peterson--he's super smart and I enjoy his YT channel so I figured I'd (eventually) give it a shot.

Feel free to ping me if you have any questions or just want to rant. Hope this helps and good luck!

u/reddevil_lady · 1 pointr/keto

May I ask why you wouldn't say this to the higher belts while you were still in their gym? You seem to have a very strong opinion on the subject and are looking for vindication for your feelings. Why not give these people a chance to explain their gym rules? Why not call the black belts that were there pussies to their face and allow them the ability to defend themselves? Maybe you should put the time in to get your black belt before berating black belts for the way they train.

If you came to train at the gym I train at and the first thing you said to me was, "I'm really a blue belt," I'd dismiss you as someone who thinks I give a shit about your belt ranking. If you came to my gym, put that white belt around your waist, worked hard and shut your mouth, I'd roll with you no problem. It seems like you just need someone to massage your ego a bit, so that you can feel better than the white and yellow belts that you rolled with.

Just relax, man. No one from that gym will remember you. No one cares about your stupid blue belt. Just go fucking train and do it quietly.

Also, here is a link to buy some chill pills. It seems like you could use one.

u/Didalectic · 1 pointr/dpdr

Dude, you got to get out of whatever cycle you are in right now. You don't want this to turn into a full-week alcohol addiction. If you still use so much alcohol despite the consequences, then it's clear you can't do it alone. Get help, professional or not.

If you haven't already tried it, then I suggest getting some Ashwagandha from NOW Foods (2.5% withanolides) or Jarrow Formulas (KSM-66). I've had success with the NOW foods one, but I've heard the Jarrow Formulas one is better.

u/Sometimes_Lies · 1 pointr/Nootropics

> I imagined myself painstakingly measuring it into each capsule.

I kind of do something like that sometimes, though I just wrap it in thin paper and swallow it before the whole mess comes loose. It's...probably not the best solution, to be totally honest.

If you want to experiment on a budget, I'd strongly recommend theanine+caffeine as a base. It's very inexpensive and works pretty well, though caffeine tolerance is annoying. Also, while it's more for anxiety than energy, I really enjoy Ashwagandha.

Oddly, caffeine and Ashwagandha are two of the few things I'd recommend buying in pill form. Caffeine because it tastes awful and is so cheap (like $5 on Amazon for 100 pills), and Ashwagandha because I happen to rather like this specific brand which is both high quality and quite affordable.

Right now I'm trying to write a romance, actually. New for me, though I'm enjoying it more than I would've expected. I just need to get a firm grasp on the subgenre, because it seems to be slipping away from me a little bit.

edit: Also, one other recommendation: Melatonin. It's dirt cheap and getting a good night's sleep helps with energy the next day. Melatonin kind of has a bad rap because most bottles of it have like 3-10mg doses, which is too much. Even the bottle I linked is 1mg, so I'd recommend cutting them in half.

edit2: So many typoes. Sorry. I basically didn't sleep last night.

u/Neuromancer311 · 1 pointr/Supplements
u/MerlotMike · 1 pointr/Nootropics

Now is a great brand, and pretty affordable. They have tight quality control, and 300-450 mg is a typical dose. Again, you probably won’t notice much of a difference for a bit. Less sensitivity to allergies, dodge a cold passing around, and may notice you handle stress a little more calmly.

As far as brands go, the main thing to do is check if they are 3rd party tested, because the FDA doesn’t regulate herbal products, the DHEA does, and they don’t hold manufacturers accountable for false products. So always check for 3rd party testing and certifications. The more the better. If the brand does any 3rd party testing they’ll make it known on their website or in the description section on Amazon. They pay a lot for those, and it’s all in hopes that consumers will choose their products over other products that are cheaper but riskier.

> I'm not sure that SSRIs and Rhodiola are a good mix. There's at least one case of an adverse reaction.

I did read that it is a MAO inhibitor and can cause headaches or even serotonin syndrome if taken with SSRIs. However it seems to be speculative. I cannot find strong evidence that there is an interaction. and list no interactions between the two.

> Why DMAE? It doesn't seem to have very good evidence.

My mistake. I meant DHA fish oil.

> Why glutamine? are you vegan/vegetarian?

Not at all haha. I've read how important it is for workout recovery and want to make sure I get enough in, so I thought I'd supplement with it. I'm on the fence about this one since I do eat a lot of protein, whey, and casein.

> Ashwagandha 800mg x2
> 800mg of what? Whole plant? It seems too high to be the extract which is what's researched/shows benefit. The extract is highly recommended.

It's the extract from NOW Foods. states "The optimal dose is 6,000mg a day usually divided into three doses (2,000mg)". The Chopra Center is more conservative: "The typical recommended dose is 600 to 1,000 mg. twice daily." I initially came up with my dosage from their recommendation - I want to be conservative since I'm taking Rhodiola as well. If I take 2 NOW pills twice a day, it will up it to 900mg x2. Where did you read that 800 x2 would be too much?

Ashwagandha 450mg 2.5%
Most helpful. Amazing Ayurvedic (ancient India) herb. Works as 'adaptogen' to balence stress hormones.

But don't take my word for it. Here is an article from the Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. (Yeah it helps against cancer too)

2 Shatavari. Another Ayurveda herb. This is the female version of Ashwagana but they work better together. If you google Shatavari and sex, or Shatavari and men you wille see articles. I was reluctant to buy this but have found they work better together. Shatavari is 'cooling' where Aswaganadha is 'heating' so it calms down an over active sex drive.

It is marketed as a PHS medication but but, I have found it does help Ashwagandha.

So these two will have a long term positive effect. Blue Lotus and Sceletium is more of a fun 'night-of' thing. Like having a couple drinks to take the edge of.

I highly recommend Ashwagandha. I really does lower street levels.

No problem! It can feel very overwhelming at first, but it gets easier once you have a few go-to recipes. As an addendum to the kickstarter (or the advice in this thread in general), make sure you are supplementing your diet with B12. The simplest way to do so is probably to just take a vegan multivitamin daily, or just a B12 supplement if you feel that your other nutritional needs are being met. Good luck!

u/nemo1889 · 1 pointr/vegan

No problem. I'd suggest that instead of becoming food concerned, you just take supplements and eat a sensible diet. That's a whole lot easier for me.

u/pm079 · 1 pointr/vegetarian

So if you're trying to add mass/strength, your biggest concern with going vegetarian is probably going to be getting enough protein. I try to take in like ~200g/day. You can calculate what you need here.

I personally get most of my protein from protein shakes. I use pea protein exclusively, this brand. Unfortunately, it comes from China but I can't pass on the price point. I also add peanut flour, cocoa powder, bananas, flax seed meal (good source of omega-3's), psyllium husk fiber (helps to slow down digestion of protein), BCAA's, creatine, and beta-alanine all in almond milk. The reason for some of those supplements can be found here.

Thanks to the fiber and the flax seed, it gets super thick almost like pudding if you let it sit. Usually, I'll mix in cold brewed coffee to get the consistency I want. It's really good. I drink like ~48 ounces a day, every day. Still have yet to get tired of it.

As far as recipes go, I try to eat high protein meals usually with beans/legumes and quinoa. I use tofu or tempeh as meat substitutes quite a bit too. I eat a lot of chili and curries. My instant pot (pressure cooker) is always getting used.

I also supplement with this multivitamin.

In response to the anti-protein focus comment, I guess I would say that I eat at a calorie deficit so it's hard to hit my protein targets unless I supplement. However, you should still count your macros at least at first to make sure you're getting in the range of where you should be.

u/publicfrog · 1 pointr/Gastritis

Since you're trying to do everything, have you looked into supplements? I've started taking 3, two seem rather effective and I've yet to notice a difference with the third. My doctor told me to take protonix (prescription) twice a day before food so I could only have food twice, and thanks to the gastritis I couldn't have much, so I was I losing a lot of weight and suffering from symptoms of malnutrition ( it didn't help that rice and ensure aren't exactly super calorie dense). Thanks to the supplements I can have small meals without needing prescription meds, so I've started feeling much healthier. I got them all off amazon, so I'll just like to what I bought.

American Health Multi-Enzyme Plus, Super Papaya

Take this with food, it's digestive enzymes and other stuff. It decreases my after-food pain.

Enzymatic Therapy DGL Chewables

It's some sort of fancy licorice. This makes the biggest difference, it's that really lets me eat that third time. The downside is that it tastes like licorice, which I personally despise, but I've gotten used to it.

Zinc Carnosine Complex with PepZin GI

This one is supposed to help stomach lining. I don't know if it works, but I doubt it hurts.

Thanks to these I've started being able to eat more and feeling better.

When you're able to start introducing more foods, I suggest starting with starchy vegetables. Potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, corn, and butternut squash are some of the ones I'm able to handle most of the time. I can also do canned pears, I make my own apple sauce (it's super easy and tastes much much better), and plain chicken since I was worried about nutrient deficiencies.

Good luck! I'm entering month 5 now. I found out about a month ago that milk is a trigger for me. That was a hard blow, it was something I've turned to my whole life when I had an upset stomach or trouble eating, it's been by far the hardest thing to give up. No milk, butter or cheese, although I'm going to try A/B experiments to see if I can regain butter and aged cheeses which are lower in lactose.

u/snakevargas · 1 pointr/Microbiome

I've had a mild sore throat for years. I've noticed that it flares in the morning when I eat late. This suggests silent reflux as a cause. I've read that reflux can be caused by inadequate stomach acid (HCL). I also had very long digestion times (5-7 hours). I frequently noticed ammonia on my breath. I started with a hypothesis that I had H. pylori, which creates ammonia and suppresses stomach acid. I read that Zinc Carnosine can knock out H. pylori, so I gave it a shot.

After a month or two I noticed an occasionally upon waking, I had an extra burst of energy in the morning. Instead of feeling like I had a bungee cord connecting my sternum to my pelvis dragging me down, I felt a sense of internal energy after getting out of bed. It was only occasional, but it was very different, so I kept taking the zinc carnosine.

I watched a talk by Jerry Tennant where he says that you need an acid (such as apple cider vinegar[ACV]), iodine, selenium and thiamine to produce HCL. I was already taking ACV, and doing well with zinc, so I added that other supplements.

Another thing Tennant mentioned was taking boron 6 mg before bed to displace flouride. I tried that and notice an immediate reduction in pains that were making it difficult to sleep.

I read somewhere (maybe Ben Lynch) that you cannot convert glutamate to GABA if you are manganese deficient. I tried Mn 10 mg in the morning and really liked the results.

At this point I found Seeking Health Trace Minerals Complex which has everything I was already taking. They also have a version (II) that omits copper, if it is a problem for you.

I also tried ConenTrace tablets, but I didn't really like it.

I don't think I have h. pylori (the tests are always negative), but I'm pretty sure my stomach acid is low. I really like the results I've had taking minerals, which suggests 1) I'm not absorbing them, 2) I'm excreting them or 3) I have toxic metals interfering with my use of nutritional metals. Still figuring this one out.

If you decide to supplement minerals, take at the end of a meal if you're prone to stomach irritation. Consider pulsing every other day or week to see how you feel with and without.

Oh, and all of my standard bloodwork for minerals has been pretty "normal" (in range).

I have some really tiny ones from when I did this for a sick cat who wouldn't swallow a bitter pill (It's how I got the idea to do it for myself! lol). The ones I linked are the standard capsule size, like a tylenol capsule or something similar.

Basically, I crush them in a pill crusher, pour the powder into a tiny funnel that is fitted inside the capsule end, and close it up with the other end of the capsule. Repeat, Repeat, Repeat. I try to keep groups of capsules together (one supplement pill's worth) because it's not exactly scientific, dumping the powder into the capsules without measuring. So that way I ensure I take the correct amount every time.

Edited to add: Don't crush and re-pill anything that is time-released. If you're not sure, ask a pharmacist. You don't want to accidentally give yourself a super high dose of something all at once because it was meant in its original form to dissolve slowly into your system. This is probably not the case for pretty much any supplement, but I thought I'd mention it in case you're thinking of applying this technique to any other medicine.

the amazonia is great, some people mix it with flourite.

you save a lot of hassle pre-fertilizing the soil... you can always go with something like osmocote plus and throw it down before the soil

then you just put root tabs in with either gelcapped osmocote or the seachem root tabs (the api ones are garbage).

00 gelcaps here:

as for the plants, MC is far easier to grow, but need to be careful with pruning.. if you cut, you'll end up with browning leaves. I've actually grown to like the S repens more in that regard, but the MC looks very nice in person. I personally haven't tried the DBT in this tank, but I am not a huge fan of it in the first place.

Yes, while sprinkling it in your PBJ can still get you high, it does taste terrible.


Or cook with dirt simple cannabutter. While pot brownies and rice crispy treats don't always taste great, they're still more palatable than munching on ABV.

Amazon, Herb Affair has the best quality capsules IMO. They have gelatin and veg caps.

u/TurquoiseKnight · 1 pointr/kratom

I make my own. Just get a capsule filler, capsules, and of course, kratom.
Capsule filler - $20.79

This is what I bought at a local compounding pharmacy. As long as I chase it with a good meal, I haven't noticed any drawbacks to it, aside from the fact that the preparation is a little more work.

Try checking this out: Plant Deficiency Chart

Looks like some minor nutrient deficiency. Likely magnesium for old growth, but if it is still newer growth. Could be iron if considered new growth. You would have to research proper ferts for the tech level of your aquarium.

I would probably recommend root tables to keep the fertilization localized to the roots. Substrate fertilization helps keep nutrients out of the water column to minimize the risk of an algae outbreak in low-tech tanks. I use Osmocote packed in 00 gelatin capsules. Just use tweezers/forceps to plant roughly 1" below the substrate at the base of plant roots. I have a heavily planted tank with many root feeders, so I plant one every 4"-6" every 3-4 months, but you can put one straight under plants that need it too.

anything in a shitty tasting liquid suspension I just put in gelatin capsules right before taking. Takes an extra 2 seconds and is really cheap. Link

NOW Foods is a reputable vendor, if you're looking for one.

u/chappy- · 1 pointr/Drugs its magic, it works better than xanax for bad stim feels IMO.

This is all personal experience BTW. But NAC has brought me out of stim pre-psychosis and let me be able to sleep 20 minutes after dosing it.

u/Karissa36 · 1 pointr/stepparents

I agree with your post. This might be very helpful. Read the reviews and discuss it with the child's doctor. Also google it. NAC is being used more and more frequently over the last couple of years to help what have traditionally been very hard to alleviate disorders like Trichotilomania (hair pulling), OCD, bipolar, etc.

I hear you! Honestly, I had a massive freakout when I first read about it, because I had a miscarriage in March and it was awful.

It's hard for a family doctor to stay up-to-date on something like this, since the information we have is split between "out of date" and "cutting edge". So I get why most docs don't know what to do with MTHFR, I'm just lucky to have a couple on my team who really get it.

Many people with your specific MTHFR variant do get the shots. (You're "compound heterozygous", ie your body REALLY hates folic acid!) My midwife recommended baby aspirin, and that's another very normal, safe treatment.

But methylated vitamins are completely safe and over-the-counter. They're actually the best choice for everyone, even though not everyone needs them like you and I do. You may want to take an extra B vitamin on top of the prenatal; I switch between these two depending on whether I can handle swallowing pills or need a topical cream.

BTW, you'll want to get your thyroid checked. Just ask your doctor.

Hang in there! Don't feel guilty, okay? You're gonna be just fine.

u/Jholzi · 1 pointr/MTHFR

I’m having some trouble making sense of my report. I ordered a recommended supplement on amazon (Thorne Research - Methyl-Guard Plus - Methylation Support Supplement with 5-MTHF (Folate) and Vitamins B2, B6, and B12 - 90 Capsules but now I’m wondering if it was the right thing to get. If anyone has any insight, it would be very much appreciated! Some symptoms that might be relevant are fatigue, anxiety/OCD, depression, skin bruising, acne, and hormonal issues.

u/sweet_monkey_tits · 1 pointr/Supplements

This is the one I take. The serving size is a ridiculous 3 capsules...I only take one a day.

u/droid-user · 1 pointr/steroids

I've been searching around the forum and it haven't seen much mention of the dosage required for TUDCA. Was going to buy some off Amazon to run with my 4 week cycle of dbol (25mg twice a day). Should I just follow the serving size dosage on the container (250mg) or should I be taking more? Thanks.

u/_smallsprout_ · 1 pointr/vegan

The one you linked is the "Tiny Tablet" version, which I've never tried. But I've been taking the full sized version for about two years now, and I really like them. I don't pay too much attention to what I eat, and I haven't gotten deficient in anything, that I'm aware of. :)

Vega Multivitamin

Try this link. This is the one I use. (:

Have your physician perform a Heidelberg test. - You may be suffering from little to no digestive stomach acids, preventing you from getting proper nutrients and calories from your food.

The test itself is simple and painless, performed in your doctors' office. You just swallow a plastic capsule the size of a large multivitamin, and a nurse lays an object about the size of a paperback book on your tummy. You sit there for about 20-30 minutes - and you're done!

The capsule measures stomach acidity, PH, and a number of other important things from your stomach, and wirelessly transmits that data to the receiver unit on your tummy, which transfers the data into an analysis program running on a laptop computer, typically sitting on a rolling cart next to your chair. The doctor will come in after the test is complete, analyze the results and give a diagnosis.


Relax. That means you have Hypochlorhydria - A fancy $200 medical word for "low stomach acid."


You will take one or two of these - HCL supplements - with your meals. They contain naturally occurring betahydroclhoride - which will give your tummy a "turbo boost" of additional, natural acids to help properly break down the nutrients in your food.

The supplements are inexpensive, can be purchased nearly anywhere, and combined with your workouts and calorie surplus will transform you into a GOD-DAMNED SEXUAL TYRANOSAURUS.

1, Tell your parents or guardian that you're concerned about your weight, get a doctors' appointment.

2, Ask your doctor - or the G.I. they refer you to - to do an endocrine panel on you, and consider the Heidelberg test. Because at your age, if you are eating a lot, and working out, you should be exploding in weight. If not, THERE IS A DIGESTIVE ISSUE WORKING AGAINST YOU.

Good luck.

Something like these?

Lots of Asian markets in the NW part of town you could check out.
