Supplements (and drugs)

A dietary supplement is a product intended for ingestion that contains a “dietary ingredient” intended to add further nutritional value to (supplement) the diet.

drug is any substance (other than food that provides nutritional support) that, when inhaled, injected, smoked, consumed, absorbed via a patch on the skin, or dissolved under the tongue causes a temporary physiological (and often psychological) change in the body.

A “dietary ingredient” may be one, or any combination, of the following substances: a vitamin; a mineral; an herb or other botanical; an amino acid; a dietary substance for use by people to supplement the diet by increasing the total dietary intake; a concentrate, metabolite, constituent, or extract

One place to gather all the supplements I’m researching and experimenting with.

Sports performance: endurance, body recomposition, muscle building & recovery:
  • GW510516
  • Cissus Quadrangularis
Research these (for mitochondrial function):
  • resveratrol, which activates SIRT1 genes – 100-250 mg per day
  • L-Carnitine, which shuttles fatty acids to the mitochondria
  • D-ribose, which is raw material for ATP molecule
  • Magnesium
  • Omega-3 fatty acids
  • B vitamins
  • PQQ
  • L-Arginine
  • ALA
  • CoQ10
Research these (for immortality):
  • oxaloacetate
  • multivitamins
  • minerals
  • coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinol is better)
  • grape seed extract
  • ALA
  • PQQ
  • creatine
  • glutamine
  • essential fatty acids
  • alpha-lipid
Therefore, the strategy is simple: take your antioxidants (vitamins and minerals, and other antioxidants such as resveratrol [update 30/03/2013: resveratrol discontinued, due to bad results], coenzyme Q10 [ubiquinol is better], grape seed extract or alpha lipoic acid), and make the most antioxidant nutrition possible.
