Quantum,

Thank you for the advice.

Since I started taking your PRE-PACK as a daily supplement routine for the last week or so. I do feel much more energized. I was not taking any other supplements prior to this. So whatever is giving me that boost, I don't mind continuing with it.

If I do go with a trimmed down version of your PRE-PACK for a daily routine. What would you recommend that I keep taking daily? The rest I would just reserve post-NE release.

One more question. Let's say you take your PRE-PACK in the morning. But, you have a release 5 hours later. Is the affect just as good as taking it 1 hour prior to release?

Thanks,
Rainman

Hi Rainman,

I cannot tell you what you should take or not ( it is against forum rules), as it is a personal choice, but I can share what I would do for myself.

First, your question made me realized that I didn"t mentioned the slight change I have done to my pre-pack a few months ago.  I have reduced magnesium to 1 tablet instead of 2 ( to avoid any chance to have loose stool the following day), and have "replaced" it by a capsule of Omega-3 ( 600mg EPA, 300mg DHA).  I have changed my post at the beginning of this thread to reflect this small change.  Like I said, I was taking Omega-3 fatty acids quite regularly, and often after release when some residual symptoms, but decided to take it before, and made it a part of my pre-pack.

My pre-pack is now:

1 x Quercetin 500mg / Bromelain 750GDU (TDO inhibitor, antioxidant, anti-allergy, mast cells stabilizer )
1x Peppered curcumin  (curcuma longa 400 mg + piperin 5mg) (IDO inhibitor , anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, mast cells stabilizer, anxiolytic )
1 x 5-HTP 50mg  ( serotonin precursor )
1 x Green tea extract 200mg ( antioxidant,  raises blood pressure, potentiation of 5-HTP in the brain by inhibiting its peripheral metabolism by Dopadecarboxylase , NMDAR blocker, mast cells stabilizer [EGCG] )
1 x Magnesium 100mg / tablet (NMDAR blocker, potassium regulator)
2 x Flaxseed oil,  1000mg/caps ( NMDAR blocker, antioxidant )
1 x Omega-3 triple concentration, 600 mg EPA/ 300 mg DHA ( emotional support/anxiolytic, ant-inflammatory effect )
1 x Lycopene  10mg (antioxidant having an affinity for the prostate )
1 x L-Theanine 250mg (NMDAR blocker, and supposed mast cells stabilizer )
1 x potassium citrate ( electrolytic rebalancing) ( IMPORTANT WARNING for all members:  I personally have a tendency to low potassium , = hypokalemia. This is a personal condition, so, do not take potassium supplements without the advice of your health professional,  if you take too much of it for your own needs, it can be dangerous, and can even cause fatal cardiac arrhythmia if you take too much,  This potassium intake may be related to a very personal condition, so I am not sure at all that it is needed for others)

All this taken, like mentonned in my first post, with 2 drops of rosemary essential oil, when the situation can allow me to do so, like for a planned release ( rosmarinic acid act as an IDO inhibitor, and also has gaba-enhancing properties through GABA transaminase inhibition, and rosemary also contains luteolin, a mast cells stabilizer ).

So, that being said, if I was to take a part of this daily, I would go with Omega-3, flaxseed oil, and peppered curcumin, and L-theanine if I happen to feel anxious.  The first 2 are lipophilic/oil, so their good effect cumulates with time.  Curcumin/turmeric is a good overall addition to a healthy lifestyle, and thousands of years of daily consumption in India have been proven safe and beneficial for health.

I already take quercetin/bromelain in my sport pre-pack, 2 times a week, and take it in my pre-pack in addition, but it is so effective and helpful that I wouldn't take every single day, I want it to keep an edge and make a difference when I take it.


I would not do separate pre-pack without the "daily" part, I would only use my whole pre-pack anyway, because, first of all, omega-3, flaxseed and curcumin are safe at those doses, even if 2 times the same day, and because I take my pre-pack either early in the morning or in the evening, when a release is planned, or during the night, in case of a NE, so if I want to skip a daily supplementation at breakfast, I can, knowing I have already taken those 3 in the pre-pack.

See what fits for you, and take to time to adjust your protocol to your own situation.

I am glad that you already feel energized, and I am not surprised.  It already happened once that I had an emergency call between the time I took my pre-pack, and the planned release.  I had to go, so no release.  I felt too much energy, for the remaining part of the dauy, from the pre-pack, and realized how hard I was struck by POIS so that I need that much supplements just to be functional and normal, but not energized, just normal, after a release.

You are very welcomed.

I can mention that, living up North, with long winter with not much sunlight, I take 1000ui of vitamin D daily, but that is not for POIS, but for general health, to counteract lack of sunlight.  However, vit D is good for auto-immune problems, so it does not hurt.


Let me know after a while about the results you get, Rainman.

Quantum,

I will keep you posted. I need to muster the courage to take the PRE-PACK and plan a release. To see what happens. Since I have not had an NE yet.

Btw, at one point you had mentioned you take Taurine as well. Is that still part of your normal routine?

Thanks,
Rainman

Hi Rainman,

No, taurine is not part of my normal routine.  I use it when there are some POIS "leftover" symptoms even if I took my pre-pack properly, among other products I have as a second line of defense ( with others like pine bark extract, pomegranate extract, Moducare,  vitamin C, ....).

I used to take it more often because I was more anxious ( taurine is a NMDS receptor blockers, which help with anxiety).  Well, after 10 years of psychotherapy, my baseline level of anxiety have decreased, and after 3 years of having found this forum and having developed my pre-pack,  anxiety is kept at bay, usually, now, so I need less supplement in order to control my anxiety.  And, at over 50, sex is less important in my relationship with my wife, and she really prefers when I stay myself ( I used to undergo a significant personality change during POIS), so she doesn't insist a lot for frequent sexual activity.  Less releases means less anxiety to manage, for me. In the last 3 years, she almost never saw the "anxious and exhausted madman" I become in POIS, and I think she is really ready to some compromise in order to never see him again.

Hi Quantum,

It's amazing. The way you describe your symptoms and relationship with your wife. It is almost identical to my situation. My wife rather have a stable/dependable man. Rather than someone who can easily change with the wind (I become an entirely different person, who cannot function like I normally do). On top of all of that, why have additional factors that can affect your ability to be successful at whatever you want to do professionally.

I feel really bad for those out there who have this problem, but do not know what it is. I hope one day your work get's the recognition it deserves, or those in the medical/scientific community wake up to realize this is a real problem men have to deal with.

Thanks again. You made a difference in my life.

Thanks for your appreciative words, Rainman.

I hope your testing with pre-pack supplementation will lead to a good control of your POIS symptoms, so that your life and relationship will be easier to manage.
