Dear fellow POIS'ers,
I'm writing this post to let you know that I'm seeing very positive results with the supplement called Hidroxil. Hidroxil was first introduced to this forum by Daniel in this thread: http://poiscenter.com/forums/index.php?topic=346.0
, and from Daniel's experiences I chose to try this drug as well. Here are my results:
After taking the drug for around 2 weeks I started to notice that the brain fog I usually suffer from was gone. I used to spend 1-2 days in a haze but I haven't had a single day with brain fog since I started this treatment.
I've now been taking Hidroxil for 2 months and my POIS symptoms are now very limited. I have no mental fatigue and my physical symptoms now only last 12 hours to one day (they used to last 2-3 days). And they are definitely much less than they used to be.
I take 1 tablet of Hidroxil and 2 capsules of Nature's Way fenugreek every morning. In addition to this I also take some ginseng pills, but to be honest I have no idea if either the fenugreek or the ginseng has any effect (I just took the ginseng because they were lying around anyway).
In addition to this I've also started taking something called Focus XT. It's a powder that should give you mental clarity and improve learning and basically it's mostly just full of caffeine. One scoop of this in the morning gives me a TON of energy for the whole day. Usually I would get tired a few hours after I woke up but not anymore. Use caution if you try Focus XT though, I'm pretty sure it's not very healthy to take too much of it.
I used to use Niacin (B3) before every O but I hated the smell of it, the flush, and it never took away all of my symptoms. Since I started taking Hidroxil I've been totally off Niacin. But recently I've also experiemented with taking Niacin again to see if that could clear away the last bits of my symptoms. First time I tried it, I had to take 1500mg to get the flush. I have a pretty high tolerance towards Niacin and I often had to use 900mg to get the flush, and it was late in the night and I had already eaten. But perhaps using Hidroxil also made it harder to get the flush. It's hard to say for sure though. Anyway, after an O and a 10 hours sleep I woke up, took some Focus XT and went for a run. And had pretty much no symptoms the rest of the day.
What remains is to find out whether long term use of Hidroxil has any damaging side effects. Hidroxil contains high amounts of B1, B6 and B12 vitamins and from what I've googled my way to, there are different opinions about this. Some websites say that it could be dangerous while other websites claim that an overdose of b-vitamins has never occured. This is of course important to find out.
