I appreciate the replies. I'll try some of that kefir while I'm waiting on the probiotic order.

I've been using the Garden of Life Raw Meal as a meal replacement/probiotic source. Doesn't taste great but my gut likes it.

The other key is Airborne LAMF after getting my annual flu shot.

Any value in glucosamine & chondroitin? As preventative?

I take it and I believe it has a place in an aging athletes regimen.

I am a big believer in supplements. DHA/Fish oil, magnesium, calcium, Vitamin D, ALA and Milk Thistle. Protein Powder shakes a few times a day. And BCAA's post workout.

I also believe in using mild medications appropriately when you've over done it - I keep a script of Naprosyn and Soma handy when heavy sessions get the better of me.

I'm also an avid believer in twice daily yoga and tai chi. Along with SMR that includes EMS with ice as needed.

Shit, I keep my Brookstone foot massager at my office and use it throughout the day whilst typing the BS that is the legal profession.

Recently got the hyperice shoulder compression unit and it was sweet until the damn bag ruptured and ice water poured all over the place (on the first use mind you). I also have the Hyerice roller and ball roller. Those things are sweet. Bit pricey, but worth it in the limited time I've had them.

For breakfast I have rolled oats, mix in protein powder and use kefir instead of milk. It ends up tasting more or less like the protein powder does.

RBSG is a much better source than myself and he covered it way better than I would have. But I've seen numerous "articles" saying G/C doesn't work as per lab tests but everyone I know that takes it says it helps.

The best thing I did for my joints were tap extra early(sorry I'm a bjj kweer so), stop wearing overly tight compression sleeves, do high rep band work, and stop drinking whiskey specifically and alcohol in general.

One of my online friends is a pretty big brained trainer and he advocates getting most of your supplements from real food i.e. eat oily fish in lieu of taking fish oil now short of eating shark cartilage and bug or crab shells I don't know where you'd get GC in food.

Mmmmmm. Delicious start to your day. Instead, have you considered licking a raccoon's ass for breakfast?

They make another one that I used to give my daughter. It seemed to help quite a bit with colic. But yeah, expensive as fuck.

Let me know how it works for you though.

I've never had real kefir but an ex-girlfriend used to get Inner Eco probiotic drinks (based on coconut water) at Whole Foods. They actually tasted pretty good. No idea what the bacteria lineup was.

I was making coconut water kefir via the linked below place. Tasty and easy, I think it helped my gut performance, though quitting the free office cold brew was probably the biggest help.

Regular milk kefir in a smoothie is fucking tasty, in addition to probably being good for the gut.

I think I like krill oil over fish oil
Creatine is still neuroprotective
N Acetylene Cysteine and Pine Bark extract I like

NAC absolutely works for me re: anxiety.

And nicotine fasted is source of great power.

Wtf is pine bark for?

Boners. Maybe not for the first or second round. That third round needs some chemistry.

Ran across this:

Upgrade Your Energy, Optimize Your Supplements
https://blog.bulletproof.com/optimize-your-supplements/
Here are the ten nutrients (almost) everyone should supplement with:
  • 1. Vitamin D
    2. Magnesium
    3. Vitamin K2
    4. Vitamin C
    5. Iodine
    6. Krill Oil
    7. Vitamin A
    8. L-Tyrosine
    9. Copper
    10. Folinic Acid with B12
I wish the topic of supplements wasn't so much the province of anecdote and gurus and the thing your smart friend does. Would like some systematic knowledge here. I'd love to take 3 or 4 well-chosen things, to get a leg up on the next ten years. But which?

I'd go with Vit. D, magnesium and zinc since most of the population is deficient in those 3. After that is up to you.

Aspirin, Hydrolyzed beef Collagen, and Glycine cleared the psoriasis I had up on my knee within about 3 weeks time. If I miss these for a few days my knees start to itch.

I've been getting some killer sleep with Now Foods Hibiscus Tea, Chamomile tea, Glycine, L-Theanine, GABA, and honey before bed. Never slept better. Super deep sleep.
