Actually, now I have..
I’ve read most of the Life Extension manual at this point, some of it a few times. Verrry interesting.
I am about to try the L-arginine + L-glutamine + choline/B5 route. I am starting at 15g a day (taken right before bed) of L-arginine and will probably do free base or hydrochloride.
Taking 30g is pretty high to me, unless you weigh about 300lbs. They do mention starting at 1/4 of your target intake and working up to avoid side effects. Which I’ll do. I will also enchance with a choline/B5 supplement. Then 2g of L-glutamine in the AM…
The L-arginine pyroglutamate route (if I am remembering correctly) with L-lysine seemed very interesting. You take much smaller amounts of each - about 1.2g a day of each substance. But since the book is out on L-lysine’s role in stimulating the hormone growth, I am debating that.
I personally would never take that many capsules. I’d just as well take it in powder form, no matter how nasty. Much better absorption and I can get it for way cheaper that way. They even mention how impractical taking L-arginine capsules is for that load capacity. But if that doesn’t bother you, then I guess it’s no big deal. But IMO one of your turds is going to be nothing but pure capsule material! :)
I figure I can get the L-arginine, L-glutamine, choline/B5 for around $35-40 or less a month. I think that’s an awesome deal.
I am highly interested in this. Pretty excited, actually. The whole site makes me want to revise my supplementation outlook. I have also considered low dosage DHEA.
Q: what source are you using for supplements?
