This is my first thread. I've never really introduced myself to this community, but I've surely lurked around and posted a few times.
Just a quick intro; 30-years old as of 2017, body weight changes, but 5'7" "strong" built, people don't often talk about my height that much nor weight, thankfully.
I have been using mainly hydro pumps as my means of gain, together with SSJs and some clamping techniques. Unfortunately my notes about starting size and the size now aren't very accurate, but there has been length growth at least of an 0.5 inch according to a small scar line. Girth is definitely up by the same 0.5 inch, on a good day I think 1 inch temporary gains have happened.
I'm mainly doing PE for the pleasant effect of it, in a way to pass time, sexual partners have been pretty much down to 1, so really, like most exercises or sports, it's best to do it for yourself!
Okay, "quick intro", let's get down to the supplements!
As a note, most of the supplements I've used I've used in a course of two or three months, to really see if there's something. Many supplements, depending on overall diet, do take their time to work, this is what's been written and what I've noticed in use.
This supplement for me has been very pleasant. Before L-Citrulline I've used L-Arginine, but reading more about it I found that L-Citrulline could work better.
And in my case it does!
Someone wrote a while ago about high dose of L-Citrulline and its effects on erection quality. I concur with the said statements; I mixed some powder in tea and had a BM session; so much easier to get a good hard on!
This is a supplement I think can work without "building up to it", I had a break from using it but by golly, it sure did wonders for me when I added it to my tea. Roughly half of a teaspoon has been the dose that has worked for me well.
I think this my "cheap Viagra." And it's probably less of a hassle to get it than Viagra. For me there's little to no taste while mixed in tea, maybe slightly alkaline taste, but nothing horrible.
Thumbs up for this supplement.
Tongkat Ali / Longjack100
I've also ran courses of this supplement, usually a 5 day on, 2 days off. Not currently taking, but I have some supply.
I feel that Tongkat Ali is good for strength and elevated mood. When I was working, I usually took just one 500mg pill in the morning and it really boosted me up.
PE wise, erections were good, but I can't say I noticed that much change to the normal. For me the elevation in my mood was great.
I've read that Tongkat Ali is good for low testosterone and likely my elevated mood was from raised levels of testosterone, just speculation.
A reasonable supplement in my experience.
Dopa Mucuna, Mucuna pruriensis I took for sperm health or bigger loads; can't say that much for a change, but Dopa Mucuna is what I use if I'm really going downhill in my thoughts. Mainly saved for special occasions; it's said to be good for sperm production, that might be true, as always bigger load isn't a sign of more sperm.
But overall, this supplement helped me to get through some darker times, as it's a precursor of dopamine production. (To my understanding, has to do with dopamine levels anyhow.)
Certainly something to used with care, that's why I save it a bit more.
Good for brains, good fats. Also took it for ejaculation volume where it had some effect, but not necessarily so great; made things more thick for me. Perhaps my water intake wasn't on par with the lecithin intake.
Certainly suggesting to get the organic Sunflower variety instead of the soy-variety. I recall another MoS member really suggesting this supplement for brain health.
Swedish Flower Pollen
I guess it's clear I've read the "Holy Grail of Cum Load Increase" and other stuff related to ejaculations.
So, this is a nice supplement, although you have to take it very consistently. There's a "loading phase" (yes, quite funny), where you'd take 3 pills a day three times a day. Quite the amount. Although just for three days, after that 1 pill three times a day.
I'm going to run a course of this soon enough. When I've been taking this I've been able to get those fantastic ropes, it's great!
So far in my opinion one of the best supplements for ejaculatory volume and enhanced orgasms. Naturally not perhaps a suitable choice if you're allergic to bees or bee pollen, but I enjoy this supplement a lot.
It's also loaded with nutrients, so overall it's a great "superfood."
The organic spice variety. I read about this a moment ago and decided to try it. It's somewhat diuretic and cleansing, so far I've only used this for a week or so. However, my findings are that is does help with ejaculatory volume like mentioned on other sites. I've been taking about 1 or 2 teaspoons a day, I like putting it to my foods. Doesn't taste so strong in foods, simply adds some flavor. And I do like celery! Just a hassle to eat a whole bunch of celery all the time.
So far I'll keep it my rotation, at least it's a damn nice spice if nothing else, suits soups very well.
Indian "ginseng", while not a part of that family, but said to have similar kind of qualities. Yes, energy boost and I think my metabolism is better when taking this; the taste is horrible though as I bought straight up powder. I did purchase a capsule making tool, so now I'm able to take this supplement.
Written about it being good for libido, my personal findings are somewhat so-so. Certainly has given me energy and mental clarity, so I'll run a course of this through. Also to be cycled like Longjack 100, 5 days on, 2 days off.
If you have a capsule making machine and can get the powder, maybe try it. Or buy capsules, the powder is so pungent in taste! (The name translates as "the smell of horse.")
I couldn't mask it in my juices or yoghurt.
This is probably a supplement known by many, at least it's been in the media a lot, in my opinion. My personal findings are nil about this supplement. I used it, but not in consistent way and not enough most likely.
I'm likely to try it again, it's an adaptogen (as is Ashwhagandha) and many reviews state much elevation in libido, ejaculation volume and overall energy. To be cycled as well, no too much of a good thing!
In many variations, one of them being the Ring Of Power. Overall a very potent mineral for men especially, this is something that you should get in certain dose on a daily basis. At least according to what I've read.
In my experience, zinc provides health for the sperm (better color for example), but also keeps flus at bay. I've mainly used it as an anti-flu cure, in that it has helped me.
Most vitamin supplements have this in some form.
This is great paired with Zinc if you get a flu. But also suggested for overall well-being. I'd say best to get this from fruits like oranges. I personally take 1000mg pill here and then, not daily for the time being.
Quite essential in the dark region where I live. Best to be acquired from outdoors and the sun, but I take a capsule now and then, as it's fat soluble so it doesn't leave the body right away. I think my current pill is 5000 IU, so I usually take it few times a week.
I've tried several brands, currently I have something, but I don't take it very often. Most of the multivitamins don't deliver that much for me, there are some good brands, but personally I like choosing what I take.
This is a list of something I have currently in my cabin or stack if you like to call it that. Mainly using Ashwhaganda, celery seeds and Vitamin D and C for now. (And I've experimented with L-Citrulline these past few days.)
I also purchased some Horny Goat Weed tea, which I can't lay my finger on it too strongly yet. At least it doesn't taste bad.
My diet isn't the greatest and all in all, no supplement can really replace a balanced diet. But for me supplementation has been more of a getting an extra per cent of force, volume, something.
I don't suggest going out there and buying all of these at once. Big Al just wrote a good thread ***Before starting any male enhancement routine- please read!*** , which relates to trying supplementation in my opinion, at least on a certain level.
I highly suggest good hydration, water preferably. I personally try to stick to about 3 liters (12.5 cups US legal cup says Google convert) a day, some days might be less, some days more, depending on perspiration.
And depending of course about which kind of food I eat. This in my experience has a lot to do with ejaculatory volume if one is seeking for that.
I know that quite a lot of this text is repetition, but I hope it raises some conversation.
I guess I'll open the line for questions and what not; what supplements you've tried? Any good, something under the radar?
All the best to all the brothers!
