I am trying a probiotic along with a b-complex. I took the b-complex and the probiotic in the afternoon, and I am interested to see how it affects me. I am looking for something that will help me deal with stress in a positive way and emotionally regulate better, especially in the afternoon. My plan is to start with these to see how they affect me. I am also going to evaluate the effect of CBD and adoptogens such as ashwagandha and ginseng.
These along with other supplements that I take on a regular basis, such as magnesium, vitamin d, l-tyrosine, melatonin, and the occasional supplementation of low dose lithium orotate.
So far I am feeling pretty good and energized, and getting ready to eat some lunch along with these supplements. I am optimistic especially about the probiotic, as it includes the beneficial bacteria of milk and dairy (bifidobacterium and lactobacillus acidophilus) that I believe contribute to motivation and positive outlook.
In evaluating the effects of the supplements, the pregnenolone provided clear thought and increased metat-rationality, along with decreased depressive symptoms. I was able to fight against the negative self-talk successfully and made great progress in coming to consensus with my more critical nature. My focus and motivation left something to be wanted, however I believe that this is due to the fact that it was towards the end of the day and I started to get tired.
Along with my morning supplementation, including PQQ, vitality renewal, and glucosamine chondroitin, I took ginkgo biloba. I am noticing additional ability to concentrate, similar levels of motivation, and increased mental clarity. I have a meeting at 11 AM and I am excited to evaluate verbal propensity
I’m starting a new job soon where I’ll be learning a lot of new stuff, and I’m already 28! I’m turning 29 this month, so I need to make sure I’m just as sharp as the other people in the class that will be much younger than me. In order to do this most effectively, I am going to use this next month as a study period so that I’ll know exactly what to supplement with at specific times.
Now I am going to take some pregnenolone, which is supplemented for it’s potential to sharpen the mind and find age-related decline. It’s got some nasty side effects, because it’s the mother hormone, but in small doses I think I’ll be able to get the benefits without any of the side effects.
The typical recommended dose of pregnenolone is 30 mg, so I’m going to start out with 25 mg. I’m going to set a timer for 1 hour and come back and re-evaluate, at which point I’ll add ginkgo biloba. Later today I’ll round out with lithium orotate and nu-mag
In order to evaluate the efficacy of ginkgo biloba in mid-day, I will now take some and evaluate it. I will take the amount of 60 mg. It looks to be about 24% pure, which puts it at approximately 12 mg, and the dose for those with dementia is about 50 mg.
