Supplements

These are the supplements I keep in my arsenal. Further below in the next section, you will find my strategies for using these supplements.

BulkSupplements

I like using BulkSupplements for my pure supplement needs because they provide high-quality cGMP products that generally rank at the top of their categories on Labdoor.

Bulletproof

I like Bulletproof because their products are very well-researched, ethically sourced, and undergo rigorous testing for quality. Plus, they are environmentally conscious.

Onnit

I like Onnit‘s supplement blends because they employ cutting-edge research to combine earth-grown nutrients and scientifically proven ingredients into highly effective products.

Thorne

My “go to” supplement company is Thorne. I tend to get all of my supplements from them before performing further research for products specifically for my needs. Thorne is the industry leader for quality control and hold the highest certifications. They do comprehensive testing, source the highest quality ingredients, operate a clean manufacturing process, and protect the environment.

Strategy

I don’t use all of these supplements every day. I use them as I feel they are needed. I prefer to get my nutrients from real food. Below, you will find some of the strategies I use for taking specific supplements.

Whole Foods

Like I mentioned above, I prefer to get my nutrients from real food. I would say I know the quality of ingredients of 98% of the food I consume. Most of my meals are made at home, and if I dine out, I do some due diligence on the food quality (though if it can’t be helped, I don’t stress about it).

These nutrient dense whole foods are a staple of my diet:

  • Avocados
  • Bell peppers
  • Berries
  • Cruciferous vegetables
  • Eggs
  • Garlic
  • Leafy greens
  • Liver
  • Mushrooms
  • Nuts
  • Oysters
  • Sardines
  • Seaweed
  • Tomatoes

The plant-based foods I consume are generally organic. The animal-based foods I consume are generally grass-fed and pasture-raised. The fish-based foods I consume are generally wild-caught.

I try to eat one serving of liver and oysters every week. I eat all of the other foods several times a week, if not every day.

Other real food staples in my diet include bone broth and kimchi.

My girlfriend and I used to purchase whole butchered hogs and steers before better options came along. Today, we get our dinners from Marley Spoon and Sun Basket.

Daily Regimen

I don’t take many supplements daily. Like I mentioned before, I prefer to get my nutrients from food and utilize supplements as I feel is necessary.

I use Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil and Four Sigmatic 10 Mushroom Blend on a daily basis. Sometimes I will blend them together. Oftentimes, I will blend the Brain Octane Oil with whole raw milk to drink with my fat-rich breakfast. I do this mainly to help keep myself in ketosis. As for the 10 Mushroom Blend, I make a big jug of it every week and drink the solution every day. I also use it as the base of my energy drink. Mushrooms are just awesome.

At this time, I am using Nutrafol daily. It’s actually marketed as a hair growth supplement, but it turns out to be a high-quality multi-vitamin. Nutrafol’s approach centers around the science of how inflammation and stress play a significant role in hair loss. Thus, their neutraceutical supplement provides a blend of natural ingredients that include adaptogens, anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatories, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. This makes for a potent blend for general health.

I eat sardines several times a week, plus other seafood dinners. However, if one of my meals doesn’t include seafood and/or if my allopathic load is greater than usual due to added stresses, I’ll take half to a full dose of Legion Athletics Triton Fish Oil.

I also use brazil nuts as a daily supplement. I’ll eat just one or two for a dose of selenium.

I have been experimenting with Qualia (Amazon) from Neurohacker Collective. This supplement is loaded with nutrients. It has been referred to as the “God Pill” for chrissakes! You’re supposed to limit its usage to five days per week. I have not come to a conclusion about it, yet.

Sports Performance

The main reason I use supplements is for sports performance and recovery.

If I am going to do a glycolytic exercise in a fasted state, I’ll take 3g of Bulk Supplements HMB Powder 15 minutes prior to the session in order to mitigate muscle damage (catabolization). If I continue to fast after the session, I’ll take 3g-6g of Muscle Feast Instantized BCAA Powder to continue mitigating muscle damage as well as promote muscle protein synthesis.

I use the following supplements in my soccer protocol:

Energy Boost

If I feel a need for a boost of energy, I’ll utilize one or more of the following supplements in various combinations, depending on the situation:

Of course, all of these supplements are included in my Soccer Protocol.

Anti-Oxidant Support

If I’m feeling run down or if I want to prepare for such situations where I know I’ll be facing free radical damage, I’ll utilize one or more of the following supplements in various combinations, depending on the situation:

I use these supplements in my Travel Protocol.

Immunity Boost

I don’t remember the last time I’ve gotten sick, but if I feel any inkling of getting sick, or if I know I’ll be around people who may be sick, I’ll utilize anything and everything in my arsenal.

I particularly like to load up on the mushroom supplements:

Depending on the severity, I’ll also pay added attention to the other supplements listed under Anti-Oxidant Support.
