If it tastes too bitter toss in some ginseng, if you can afford it. Those two will heal your adrenal glands, so beware if you start getting better adrenaline rushes that wash from head to toe.

Kai, this is relevant to my interests...could you please do a break down of supplements for overall energy levels, focus, etc., especially to sustain the endocrine system? Perhaps overall Chinese supplements that are readily available and conveniently packaged (capsules etc.) in the west?

Ah, missed your post somehow.

I actually first learned about this from here at RVF. Then I realized this was the same stuff I saw my Chinese in laws using as well as all the other older Chinese around me. The only difference is that I buy the ingredients in raw form and not droplet bottles like Seduction Sutra (aka Sebastian Sebi) recommended.

Adrenaline is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands and is released in response to stress. Adrenaline released for short periods is not a big deal but becomes problematic when it is prolonged. When it is prolonged it lowers levels of LH Lutenizing hormone, which in turn lowers testosterone production.

Adrenaline receptors in abundance in stubborn fat areas: stomach hips, glutes etc. When adrenaline is sensitive we utilize energy from stubborn fat areas for stressful situations. When we are stressed too often the receptors get worn out and the brain gets the signal that you do not have enough energy stored in stubborn fat areas. Subsequently more energy is stored in stubborn fat areas when you eat.

Adrenaline is highly inflammatory and causes a subsequent increase in cortisol to drive down the inflammation.

Adrenaline resistance comes from too much stress: work, poor sleep, relationships, financial, excess caffeine consumption, stimulants like most fat burners, too much intense exercise.

Balance adrenaline by adding in more restoration activities: swimming, tai chi, chi kung, yoga, joint mobility, meditation, massages, vacations.

If you do three adrenaline workouts per week you need to do three restoration workouts per week as well.

Supplements that help with adrenaline resistance (complete with the supplements he recommends; see the links):

- Theanine: amino acid that helps with relaxation. Take 100mg two times per day. Also high in green tea.
- Reishi mushroom : modulates cortisol and helps with stress management at 500mg 2x per day.
- Rhodiola : An adaptogen that also helps with increases oxygen uptake.
- Siberian ginseng : another adaptogen and also helps the hormonal pathways go from pregnenelone to DHEA rather than to cortisol.
- B vitamins : B vitamins get depleted from too much stress. 1 tab 2-3 times per day with meals.
- Maca: 2-3 tablespoons per day: helps with adrenal health. Also helps women make more progesterone and is great for estrogen metabolism.
- Systemic enzymes; lower inflammation and helps with recovery. 2 caps three times per day in between meals.

I'm interested but don't want to spend the coin...He seems legit though...I'm on the path now man..no coffee, trying to sleep 8 hrs plus every nite...and taking adrenal supplements, which in one week has me feeling more and more like a morning person...doing sprints...lifting heavy...getting sun...eating grass fed.....starting everyday with organic whey protein in filtered water....dark leafy greens...5-8 tbs of olive oil a day....coconut oil...flax seed oil....siberian ginseng from real good source...taking a liver supplement from argentina 100% grade a grass fed beef...having sex raw and not always ejaculating...etc..etc

What I do is buy the raw ingredients from the Chinese Traditional medicine store. I was actually planning to do a datasheet on all this shit and decided not to. I was going to take pictures of the stuff so guys can learn how to buy it, because they got shit in there at 600 dollars! Chinese think the older a ginseng root is, the better it is. Now that might be hokey, but I ain't buy that shit to find out. I get 80-200 dollar amounts and that usually lasts me a while. Also there are several kinds of Ginseng as well as fake ones.

It's a little bit off topic for this thread, but if you really want more information on it, I can try and see what I can find but I need a new photohost site to host pics though.

Chinese people also like sipping these glass vials filled with these things in a honey mixture.

Of course, the ones I bought in China were even better than the ones I could buy in Houston. The ones in China were surprisingly expensive too (in Chinese money I thought). This stuff is a HUGE HUGE deal in China for Chinese people 40 and older. It has to be a several billion dollar industry.

So to recap, my current vitality stack is the following below:

1. Panax/Korean Ginseng
2. Ling zhi/Reishi/ganoderma
3. Optizinc with the 2% copper
4. Selenium
5. Vitamin D
6. Saw Palmetto or Cialis 5mg
7. Fish Oil
8. DIM (Diindolylmethane) <- This is a MUST HAVE! Knocks the estrogens off the stomach!
9. Multivitamins

Extra stuff I sometimes take

Maca
Trib
Milk Thistle (because I drink alcohol)
Kidney detox tea
Creatine

Blew through my learning curve the last week or so, trying to keep it going until tourney. It's amazing the drive and focus generated by an upcoming competition.

This winter will be huge for me, as I'll have extra time to just be at the gym. Wish I'd have started this in my 20s.

Won Lost Won Lost (it was double elimination tournament).

I was at the top age of my bracket...middle aged dude going against kids. My last loss was to an 18 year old kid for 3rd place, and I had zero energy.

I had my first ever adrenaline dump after the first match. I was basically was in shock after it, laying in a chair, only wanting to sleep. I've never experienced it to that level.

During the second match, I was going against the guy who ended up winning. I almost landed a takedown on him where we rolled into the scorers table instead. If I'd have gotten the takedown, it may have turned out differently...he had tight game though, respect.

Takeaways:

1. Doing a tournament focused me and made me way better just leading up to it. I'm far better than I was only 3 weeks ago...even than 2 weeks ago.

2. It's exhausting. The only thing I can relate it to is running long distance. I ran a decent mile race in high school (under 5 min), and that's a similar feeling. I purposefully waited until the last minute to sign up and was the only one from my gym who entered. As a gym, normally we push conditioning more leading up to tournaments.

3. My gym (culture, owner, coaches and members) is great. I would say 2/3 of the BJJ I watched looked sloppier and looser than what we strive for in my gym.

4. I'd never cut weight before, had no idea what I was doing, and was a little outta wack all day from it. Now I know why guys pay so much attention to cutting and replenishing before competition.

This is something that could take up a few books worth of discussions. I would say there are tiers to it, like amateur, pro, and elite levels of it.
