Supplement Regiment


What is your personal supplement intake & regiment

Q: Vince, what is your personal supplement intake & regiment? A: My personal supplement regimen has two areas; 1) my standard issue list for muscle maintenance, focus and general health and 2) things I may be taking to evaluate, or for specific periods of time—like a fat a burning compound.

My Standard List

• My goal is to get 250+grams of highly quality protein per day, and to do so, I rely on protein powders and in particular Meal Replacement Powders (MRP’s) to get 50% of that number. Typically the MRP’s I use have a combination of whey and casein, the two principle milk proteins for a fast and slow delivery of amino acids. The MRP’s I use also contain some carbs as I really believe a moderate intake of carbs with protein works better than simply relying on pure protein powders all the time. I like the brands ISS, Oh Yeah, Phillips Full Strength and CNP for proteins. • Green Tea Extract: 500 mg – 125 mg of EGCG per caps to support my metabolism. I take 3 caps twice daily (six caps per day) • BCAA’s— I take 2-4 grams with whole food protein meals to increase the BCAA and primarily the Leucine content of each meal. I do not take with my MRP’s since they are already high in BCAA’s. I currently use two products from companies I have done writing for: I use AMS Sugar Free Body Mortar, and also MPR Amino from ISS Research. • Grape Seed Extract–-I take 2-caps twice daily of Grape Seed Extract providing a minimum of 95% Polyphenols (each cap =100 mg). • Turmeric Curcumin a Powerful Ayurvedic Antioxidant, I take 500mg per dose 2-3 x per day, standardized for 95% Curcuminoids. I personally take curcumin for its ability to improve mental function and as a neuroprotector. • Huperzia serrata or Hup -A — I take 50 mcg upon awakening and midday for mental acuity and specifically memory recall • Acetyl-L-Carnitine—– I take 1 gram twice daily for mental acuity and to increase androgen receptor sensitivity. • DMAE (dimethylaminoethanol)— I take 500 mgs twice daily—-DMAE has been found to increase choline levels. Choline serves as a precursor of acetylcholine, which is one of the neurotransmitters responsible for memory function.

Experimental/Trial Supp List: • Rhodiola Rosavins: I take 2 caps/twice daily (each capsule contains 340 mg Rhodiola rosea Root Extract standardized to provide a minimum of 3% Rosavins or 10.2 mg). I am experimenting with this herb to see if it gives me a boost mentally, and to improve recovery from long work days or training via increased cell energy replenishment. • Pump by MRP (A brand marketed by ISS) — This is a pre-workout product that I like for it’s creatine and beta-alanine content. I can say it gives you a nice buzz, not too harsh, but I can definitely feel the beta-alanine which gives you a flush feeling when you take it. This item is definitely design for muscle performance versus getting you high on stims, which I like (I take enough stims anyway)
