Vitamin supplement and cold wrap
Let me know what you all think…
I’ve been reading the board for a long time and it seem that most of the supplement discussion has been focused on erectile enhancement, rather than the treatment after PE.
I’ve also seen several articles suggesting that PE’er warm-wrap “after” their workout. I believe this is wrong (to a degree). Here is my thought process,
When you are Jelging, you are basically trying to enlarge the cellular makeup of your penis (meaning stretching for permanancy). Since there is no muscle (other than small amount on the base of the penis) on the body of the penis, when you are jelging, you are damaging the cellular structure. Now I’m not talking about blood spewing type of damage, but no matter how careful you are, the cellular structure will be imflammed and/or torned/ bruised (but cannot be seen or felt).
The hanger/stretcher also will face above scenerio, albeit with slight difference. You are putting slightly more pressure on the ligament/connective tissues. However, imflammation could still could occur as cell struction could be bruised or torned (cells not yet ready for heavier weight?).
So why do I think its wrong to have a warm-up after a PE session? Its because imflammation is better treated with cold (not always, but in our case). You are trying to minimize the damage (imflammation) so that your body could do its job more efficiently.
Think about it this way, after heavy jelging or hanging session, don’t you feel like your penis is on fire? Thats because it is bruised/damaged and your body is trying to repair the damage. The cold treatment will aid in that process.
As for the supplements, there are lots of talk about HGH, L-Arginine, etc. However, these are geared more toward erectile enhancement, rather than recovery support. I’ve listed below all the vitamin/herb that could be useful in this process.
As for what I do? I warm up regularly, then after the session, I wait until my blood flow is normal (few minutes) then use slightly cold wet tower wrap. It seems to speed up my recovery process fairly quickly.
Vitamin/herb listing for recovery process:
Medicago Sativa (alfalfa leaf) - contains abundant chlorophyll, vitamin C and boflavonoid, D, E, K with trace of calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, potassium, sulphur, silicon,choline, and zinc. Purifies the blood, neutralizes acids and toxins.
Astragalus Membranaceus (Astragalus Root) - is a tonic herb which strengthens the immunine system.
Barley and wheat Grass - detoxify and slows the cellular deteriorization.
Vaccinium (Bilberry fruit) - it strengthens veins and capilaries.
Carrots - is an anti-oxidant with great anti-inflammatory conditions.
Chlorella - another cellular anti-degeneration herb.
Echinacea - one of the better immune booster. Also acts as an antiseptic when applied to skin.
Zingiber Officinalis (Ginger Root) - great general immune booster and anti-inflammatory root.
Ginkgo Biloba (Ginkgo Leaf) - improves blood circulation and the quality of blood flow to the central nervous system. Typically sold and memory enhancer, which it will help, but this will thin the blood which aid in oxygination of all core system (eye, brain, heart).
Glucosamine- provides support to manufacture a mucopolysaccharide found in cartilage.
Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) - strong anti-oxidant that prevent cell damage.
Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) - general anti-inflammation herb.
MSM - relieve the pain and inflammation.
Oat Bran - helps restore bones and connective tissue.
Saw Palmetto - Anti-inflammatory.
Vitamin A/Beta-Catotene - is an antioxidant that prevents free radical damage, and promote skin health.
Vitamin B-2/3/6 - helps skin health and arterial tissues.
Vitamin C - helps make collagen, which strengthens blood vessels, bone and skin.
Vitamin E - another great antioxidant.
Iron - support immune and collagen (connective tissue) production.
Magnesium - help build tissues and promotes absorption of other minerals.
Selenium - antioxidant that wors with vitamin E to protect against cellular damage.
Turmeric - Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.
Zinc - strengthens immunity and wound-healing. Also support testosterone development.
