Supplement Trials Summary (Revised for Updated Baseline)
The update to my baseline measurements described above made most of my previous results different, along with being more conclusive. Here are the results of all of my supplement trials to date:
The Horny Goat Weed Experiment
The HGW increased my load size by a statistically insignificant amount. It caused a significant increase in the sperm content of my cum (and that’s not even counting the anomalous day during the trial that my cum was 80% opaque, yielding a rough sperm volume of well over twice my baseline!). And while a decreased libido happened to coincide with this HGW trial, the overwhelming evidence of my experiences prior to this experiment show that HGW in fact is excellent at increasing libido.
Dose: 500 mg or 1000mg Vitamin Shoppe Standardized Herbs Horny Goat Weed (with maca extract and other herbal extracts)
Effect on Cum Volume: None
Effect on Sperm Volume: Significant increase (~30%)
Effect on Libido: Significantly increases libido
Side Effects: None
The Horny Goat Weed + Lecithin Experiment
As with the HGW-only trial, the HGW and lecithin combination had no effect on my cum volume. But it increased my sperm volume substantially, even more than the HGW alone did. And the lecithin made my cum more viscous.
Dose: 500 mg Vitamin Shoppe Standardized Herbs Horny Goat Weed (with maca extract and other herbal extracts) + 1000 mg lecithin (capsule), with breakfast or lunch
Effect on Cum Volume (vs. baseline): None
Effect on Cum Volume (vs. HGW baseline): None
Effect on Sperm Volume (vs. baseline): Large increase (~40%)
Effect on Sperm Volume (vs. HGW baseline): Decent increase (~8%)
Effect on Libido: Result inconclusive, but likely significantly increases libido (from the HGW)
Side Effects: None
The Zinc Experiment
The significantly decreased the size of my load, and it had no effect on the sperm volume. However, the zinc made my cum noticeably more viscous. It would be interesting to stack lecithin and zinc in a future trial, since both have this effect of making my cum thicker. Would my cum end up even thicker, a clumpy sticky mess?
Dose: 50 mg zinc with breakfast or lunch
Effect on Cum Volume: Substantial decrease (~16%)
Effect on Sperm Volume: None
Effect on Libido: Decent decrease; result inconclusive, further testing required
Side Effects: Possibly caused minor (small) acne, especially in the scalp
The Celery Seed Experiment
Celery seed proved a great, multi-faceted aphrodisiac. It significantly increased both my sperm volume and my overall cum volume. It increased my libido, and made my erections come easier and harder. It definitely caused morning wood, and lots of it. And all this was on a relatively small dose.
Dose: ½ to 5/8 tsp whole celery seeds, chewed/ground, with breakfast
Effect on Cum Volume: Solid increase (~11%)
Effect on Sperm Volume: Significant increase (~26%)
Effect on Libido: Solid increase, on average, but this effect proved uneven; erections come easier and are harder
Side Effects: Possibly caused some restless sleeping and nasal congestion from swelling while sleeping
