Supplements that clearly do something
I want to start a thread that lists supplements that actually do something. It doesn’t have to be exactly what you want, but it does do something. I assume prescription drugs already do something so those do not need to be included. A good indicator, but not always, of a supplement doing something is if it can be standardized and has a measurable amount of a component, like yohimbe bark with 4% yohimbine alkaloids. Different supplements may work for different people so all opinions are welcome. Please list only supplements that have a clear, undeniable and repeatable effect and what that something is. Thanks
Supplements that do something within 24 hours
Yohimbe bark – 1 or 2 Makes me horny and gives me hard erections, along with raised body temperature, insomnia, flushing, anxiety, paranoia and heart palpitations.
Valerian Root – Take 2 or 3 and it reduces anxiety and helps me sleep. It also reduces libido. I only use standardized valerian root (it needs to stink to work)
Kava – 3 mellows me out and makes me stupid, reduces libido. I have only used it a couple of times and don’t recommend it.
Maca – I can’t feel an undeniable effect, but my wife gets much wetter in her vagina (as in wet panties) within 1 hour and this lasts for 4 hours. So I hope it is making her hornier. I give her 2.
Supplements that do something longer term
High dose fish oil – Improves mental clarity for me, and improves my wife’s libido.
I could list the supplements that haven’t worked for me or may have done something but I’m not sure if they were the reason, but that list would be very long. Please add your own to the list. Thanks
