Let’s Talk Supplements, Folks.

So I’m a big believer in using the tools science gives you to make you stronger.  After all, iron sharpens iron, and if you have the tools to give yourself an advantage why not use them?  It just works for those of us who want an advantage over life.

The problem is finding the right supplements and stack that will make your body work for you, instead of against you. If you’ve followed me for a while, you know that I’ve battled and won a fight against a degenerative muscle disease called Ocular Myasthenia Gravis.  It’s a condition where your white blood cells think your musculature is a disease and attacks it.  I’ve been in remission for some time now, but that doesn’t mean I can’t go back at some point and be forced to take medication that has me hugging the porcelain god every morning.

So when I pick a stack of supplements to work with my life, I make sure I look to the best.  I have several issues with “traditional” supplements, the most of which are absolute crap.  If you go to your local GNC for example, the people there will try to pawn off absolute garbage to you unless you know what you’re looking for and can speak their language.  Then you MIGHT, and I stress MIGHT get what you want out of something, be it a test booster, PCT, or otherwise.

The biggest area that I’ve been interested in since I started experimenting with what Dave Asprey calls “Biohacking” is nootropics.  Since I write, argue, and read for a living, I need to be on peak focus and mental energy for everything I do.  As one of my spirit animals, Spider Jerusalem, once said:

“I do not want your cheap brainburning drugs.  They are useless for work.  And I am a working man today.  I want Vasopressin, Washed Caffeine, Jumpstart, Gingko Biloba, Guarana, and any Intelligence Enhancer introduced in the last five years…Now jump to it, pusher sperm.”

So I have been taking a stack recommended by Mike Cernovich of Gorilla Mindset fame for about a month or so now.  This is the way my cycle works:

Week 1:

(Empty Stomach)

Piracetam

ALCAR

Rhodiola

Magnesium

(First Meal)
L-Theanine

Caffeine

(Afternoon)

Piracetam

ALCAR

L-Theanine

Caffeine (if fatigued)

Cinnamon

(Before Bed)

Magnesium

Because I pull some weird hours, the next phase of the cycle goes like this: I sub out the Piracetam with Modanfil, 200 MG. I half the pill and take 100 MG on an empty stomach in the morning and 100 MG in the afternoon, approximately 7 hours after the first dosage.  The Modanfil has to be cycled on a weekly basis to avoid any sort of tolerance buildup.

Before I had a Modanfil prescription, I took Onnit’s “Alpha Brain” for a bit of a jump-start to my day with regards to brain function and cognitive abilities.  It was my go-to source for getting ready for the day, and gave me a jump on the tasks I needed to focus on.  Now things are a bit different, but I do want to outline what effects the Cernovich nootropic stack had for me.

It hulks your brain up to unforeseen levels.  Your productivity will maximize to levels you haven’t seen before.  You will be able to focus like nobody’s business, and you will be able to up your productivity and creative flow like you’ve never seen before.  I’ve pulled some 20 hour days recently, with 4 hours’ sleep being a normal day, and the Cernovich nootropic stack has saved my ass on numerous occasions, making my entire family happy and helping me grow my business online and in my law practice.

Mike, if you’re reading this, thank you for another great piece of advice that’s helped enrich my life.  There’s a reason I’m glad to call myself part of the Cerno Club, and this is one small shred of it.

Eventually, I had to test out something different.  Something that would cause me to cut down on the amount of supplements I bought and ingested.  I couldn’t go back to Onnit, because their formulas were good but not working at the levels I wanted them to.  That’s when I decided to take the jump to RED Supplements, and I’m so glad I did.  I’ve ordered a couple of times from RED, and I’m not going back anytime soon.  In fact, RED Supplements are my go-to for making sure I stay at optimal function.

Right now, I’m currently using RED-PCT and RED Monkey on weekends and when I need a pick-me-up. Recently, I started taking RED-Burner, and I can tell you it’s the best Thermo/Fat Burner/Energy Pill/Whatever You Call it on the market.  Current stack is as follows:

(Empty Stomach)
Piracetam/Modanfil

ALCAR

RED-PCT

Magnesium

(With Food)

RED-Burner

(Afternoon)

Piracetam/Modanfil

ALCAR

RED-Burner

(Before Bed)

RED-PCT

Magnesium

This will get changed when I cycle off the RED-PCT and back onto a test booster (hopefully the new RED MK-Growth Ultra when that happens), but you get the picture.  The biggest takeaways are as follows:

  1. RED-PCT is the first Post Cycle Therapy I’ve tried that works.  No bullshit, no false snake oil promises, the gains that I get during a test cycle stay where they are with RED-PCT.
  2. RED-Burner is the only stimulant/energy/thermogenic/fat burner I’ve found that works for me.  I’m incredibly stimulant sensitive to the point where stuff that has immense amounts of caffeine and other, traditional stimulant formulas just leave me jittery and with a nervous feeling.  RED-Burner does none of this; it actually provides clean energy and a great feeling while giving you the drive to move forward in your day.
  3. Less pills to swallow during a day.  With RED Supplements, you get stuff that works, so you don’t have to go to GNC or the Vitamin Shoppe and worry about what you’re getting with regards to potency and whether it works.  You know it will be a solid product, because Victor Pride and Chris Deoudes don’t sell shit they haven’t tried and used themselves.

So there you go.  When stuff that I’d been using decided to fail on me, or I was pulling hours that didn’t give me a major boost with the stack I was on, I looked to RED Supplements and it came through like a madman for making sure I stayed on track with my goals.  That’s why I’d tell you in a heartbeat if you’re looking for some sort of supplement to keep you on track to reach your mental, heath, and physical goals you need to look to RED Supplements.  They’re good people and their products work.
