The big penis and mens' sexual health source, increasing penis size around the world.

Vitamins and supplementation. My assessment of what works well.

Vitamins and supplementation. My assessment of what works well.

I am new here but I felt that a summary of my supplement usage and why I use them could be helpful.
First of all, I am becoming more involved in physical training, coaching and exercise physiology and what I am using helps both in general health and penis health.
If you’re not generally healthy, your penile health will suffer. Plus, many supplements aid with blood flow to the penis.
I’m sure a lot of this has been covered before but hopefully you may find it useful.

I am 48, still fairly athletic and have no major health issues and no ED problems. I was a smoker up until 2 years ago and after quitting, I packed on about 45 pounds. I’ve lost a big chunk of that and am involved in weight training again and started PE around early August of this year.

General supplements I take daily.
Vitamin-D
I cannot stress how important this vitamin is. And we are almost all chronically deficient on this. In the winter I take at least 4000 I.you. Of vitamin-D and in the summer at least 2000 I.you. You can’t overdose on vitamin-D and it makes a huge difference in health. Be certain you are also taking sufficient vitamin-A with the D. But too much A can be harmful so no more than the USRDA

* Vitamin-C Important anti-oxidant 500 mg daily
* Fish oil (krill oil is even better) at least200 mg of DHA and 120 mg of EPA per capsule daily
* CoQ-10(Co-enzyme Q-10) Related to the energy release in the body and an essential heart supplement 100 mg daily
* A good general multi-vitamin

“Male Enhancement Related” supplements I take daily (EDIT: I take these every other day now)
* Horny goat weed- 500 mg daily
* L-Carnitine- 500 mg daily
* Tribulus Terrestris- 300-500 mg daily
* Ashwagandha- 750-1000 mg daily
* Maca- 1000-1300 mg daily
* Saw Palmetto- less than 600 mg daily
* Yohimbe Bark- no more than 400-500 mg daily- can cause anxiety, heart palpitations.
* Avena Sativa- 500-600 mg per day.
* Tongkat Ali- 1500-3000 mg per day.

Now don’t get me wrong; by “male Enhancement supplements” I am not suggesting that these make your penis larger. They do, however, increase blood flow to the penis and can improve erection quality.
Be warned, however, that Yohimbe bark supplements can affect some people adversely so start low with dosage to check your tolerance and build up slowly.

Here is a link to WebMD on Yohimbe.

The other biggie on the list is the Tongkat Ali. I take about 1600 mg of this a day and it is very effective. It can boost general mood, increase penile blood flow and is also reportedly capable of spurring a natural increase in testosterone production. I can’t quantify this scientifically in regards to my personal use but it does seem to increase my feelings of competitiveness and aggression (not in a bad, violent way but more in a “youthful” way) and does seem to increase my energy and mood-all signs of testosterone boost.

The above mix of supplements is my daily regime and I can definitely attest to that combination, which took me about 6 months to work out, has improved my EQ, mood and energy.
I am almost 49 years old and while I do not suffer from erectile dysfunctions, the quality of my erections has decreased over the last few years—-not unusual considering my age and my 28 year history of smoking.
However, if I take these supplements within 30 minutes of waking up, my morning erection is tremendous and as hard as it would be using an ED med such as Viagra.
I also walk around in a state of slight semi-erection most of the day-nothing embarrassing; I can just feel that I am slightly engorged.

This, I’m certain, is how companies selling male enhancement pills initially fool their customers into believing they have experienced penis growth…they walk around with semi-stiffies and experience full erections-possibly for the first time in years. This makes them feel “bigger” though they are just experiencing erection like they did when they were teens.

This supplementation works for me and it could probably work for you too. My goal was improving health and first, penile health second.
If you are overweight, eat a diet high in sugars and saturated fats and don’t exercise and take care of yourself, all the supplementation and PE in the world won’t help.
The dosages above (with the exception of the vitamin-D which I recommend to EVERYBODY) are what work for me. You can experiment with different supplements and dosages to see what works for you.

I hope this has been helpful.

When you quit smoking .. Did you notice any effect on your EQ?


Starting (10 / 2011): 6.50 BPEL, 5.50 MEG

Current: 7.50 BPEL, 6.00 MEG

Goal: 8.50 BPEL 6.50 MEG

@Starbuck1963, thanks for the info. I found your post interesting as I pretty much take similar supplements, I am close to your, I am 46, I do also think that diet and exercise are very important, basically there is not silver bullet.

Here’s a break down of my supplements:

Vit D
CoQ10
Carlson’s Fish Oil
Nature’s Way Alive Multivitamin for men 50+
Male Fuel by Twin Lab prior to sex but I haven’t really felt any noticeable difference, it’s probably because I have never taken the full dose of 3 capsules all at once. Basically because of the Yohimbe bark extract, I have taken 2 capsules at a time then took 1 more couple of hours later but didn’t notice any difference. I plan to take all 3 capsules one time and see how that works.
Besides that I drink a glass of Amazing Grass Green Super food every morning, with a spoon of Braggs raw apple cider vinegar.

Here’s a break down of my diet for 6 days a week (I allow one day of taking it easy):

Raw vegetables (Tomatoes, Carrots, Cucumbers, Celery, Green Peppers, Onions)
Raw fruits(Strawberries, Black berries, Bananas and some times if I can find good mangoes, pineapple)
Raw nuts (Almonds, Walnuts, Pistachios, Hazelnuts, Peanuts and Brazil Nuts)
Cooked meat dishes consisting of Chicken, Beef, Goat and Lamb.
My main drink is water, tea and occasionally coffee. I used to drink beer but gave it up because of the high calorie and carbohydrate content.
I try and count my carbohydrate intake, it really makes a difference for me.
Things I avoid, extra added sugar, extra added salt, junk food, frozen foods, canned foods, Fast foods, Cereals, Soda, Juices, Cookies you get the picture.
I think that sugar, salt and diets containing starchy/fast burning carbohydrates should be avoided as much as possible.

Exercise:

I do exercise at least 3 days per week, been doing that since I was seventeen but now I mostly do Kettlebells, Body weight exercises, Yoga and practice some martial arts techniques that I had learnt years ago. I find Kettlebells extremely effective for overall fitness and also great improvement in sexual performance because they really make your legs, back and core area very strong.

PE:
I basically do Jelqing and Kegels.

My Vices:

This is the big one and that is I still smoke, damn I have quit for a month here and there but always go back to it. I don’t smoke a lot like 2-5 cigarettes per day, 5 being too much for me. I guess I really enjoy smoking specially after lunch and dinner. I am hoping one day I will be able to quit completely.

Conclusion:

That pretty much is my diet, exercise and supplement regimen, plus I keep a positive attitude, try to help others, stay humble and be gracious, I think all this adds up to having a good life and a tremendous sex life and oh, one last thing I do have a gorgeous and an awesome girlfriend, and something else that help us is that we communicate openly with each other about our sex life, like what she wants and what I want, basically help each other enjoy sex more and more. And I think that’s what the ultimate goal of PE is, or am I on the wrong forum?

That’s way to many supplements you’re taking there Starbuck. I’m saying this after taking pretty much everything there and more, but it only contributes to pe a small percentage-10% or less.

I agree with TGD comments I think there are many supps and true enhancers there
Thinking back I only started with Horny Goats Weed used for PE

Now I take Ashwaganda
Horny Goats Weed
Tribulus I take for my gym workouts mainly
Saw Palmetto is better for prostate controls but since I receive medication for prostate enlargement I do not use it
Yohimbe is prohibited here as far as I know
Tongkat Ali is a powerful enhancer many say that it should not be taken daily as it is the same or better than viagra
That’s my two cents


Blue eye, blonde latino

I would like to give myself any possible advantage in making permanent gains. Would anybody recommend any of these products as a supplement to a PE routine?
