Taking a shitload of supplements atm but most I’ll just finish and won’t restock.

Supplements I will most likely continue: Creatine, vitamins k2 and d3, magnesium, asthaxanthin, lithium orotate, TMG, beta-alanine, boron, melatonin, trehalose (my espressos tastes great with this)

Supplements I am in doubt about: arginine-akg, glycine, nac, citrulline malate(since I am already on the carnivore diet and eat lots of protein), niacin, q10, ashwaghanda (this worked initially but I believe the effect wears off)

Supplements I quit or will quit: pqq, hmb, alpha lipoic acid, l-theanin, d-aspartic acid, quercetin, fisetin, pterostilbene, resveratrol

Will be adding hyaluronic acid though as an experiment

I have not researched hyaluronic acid much. I came across some information that suggests it might be helpful. Have you seen any human clinical studies that look good?

To be honest I just got this one from YouTube both Brad Stanfield and my nmn experiment have some positive videos with positive human study results. It’s not expensive either, like 18 euro for a 3 month supply. I’ll just give it a try… one of the videos had a link to a study in which people took HA for three months, the before and after pics did look impressive…

Based on results so far I’d say there was a commercial opportunity selling pharma grade 17-Alpha Estradiol…

4 Likes

I only have seen it from a laboratory supplier but I am not willing to take that as it has too many impurities…

In honor of our survey, Harvard University’s homepage is all about aging.

Have been using HA for a long time now in two forms: oral (capsule)cwith my morning smoothie and subcutaneous injections (mesotherapy) for face, neck, chest and hands. The results are (at least visual) are very impressive.

It seems that people are most interested in trying 17-Alpha Estradiol next.

But the availability and safety are still a problem.
Recently, are there any progressions of 17-Alpha Estradiol?
