Shamans Magic Potions
« on: September 08, 2008, 01:42:06 PM »
Here is a thread for natural&paleo alternatives to "workout supplements"

Grapeseed extract & red wine extract: taken right before bed time are known to greatly (and naturally) increase HGH and Testosterone while you sleep. This is a great and completely healthy way for men over 28 (when HGH and Testosterone production starts to fall) to keep production at optimal levels.

Egg white protein powder: protein from a paleo source with none of the negative side effects of soy based protein.

Raspberry: increases metabolism

Pomegranate Juice or Extract & and Arginine:Promotes vasodialation by  Nitric Oxide production. Every NO product is derived from these.

Green and White teas Antioxidant and increases metabolic rate.

Coffee Easy source of caffeine which not only increases metabolism, but if taken before a workout increases strength and endurance. Also keeps BigKhanz from eating someones soul when he 1st gets up.

Red Meat increases testosterone and is the main source of Creatine (which is needed for muscle contractions and is an excellent musclebuilder) in most people's diet.

I'll post more, but I'ld love to hear a few from other people too.

Hmm, I was reading some more on resveratrol this morning from Dr Al Sears:

Dear Craig ,

They're at it again.

Resveratrol in red wine, in addition to acting as a powerful antioxidant, has now been shown to affect genetic aging.

Big Pharma solution?

Make a synthetic drug instead.

A recent article in the New York Times reported that, “Sirtris, a startup founded…to develop drugs with the same effects as resveratrol, completed its sale to GlaxoSmithKline for $720 million.”

But why wait while the big drug companies try and create a synthetic drug to get the anti-aging benefits of resveratrol. You can get all the benefits right now easily, the natural and healthy way.

Usually the natural version is much safer and often has other underappreciated benefits. Let’s look at some interesting facts and benefits of resveratrol.

Resveratrol activates proteins in your body known as sirtuins.

When activated, sirtuins tell your body to stop everything it's doing and focus on maintaining your body’s tissues. This in turn, protects against diseases and aging. The net effect significantly increases your life span.

In the past, the only proven way to activate sirtuins was to go on a low calorie diet, or on a fast. But resveratrol is the only known food substance that creates the same effect—without starving yourself.

In a Harvard Medical School study, resveratrol increased the survival rate of human cells after exposed to DNA-damaging radiation. It even extended the lifespan of roundworms, fruit flies, yeast and human cells by up to 70%.1

Research shows it can also protect you from embarrassing “senior moments” caused by Alzheimer’s. It protects the brain from free radicals believed to start the process of cognitive decline and keeps brain cells alive.2

Here’s one more thing mainstream medicine still doesn’t know about resveratrol: It’s more potent when taken in combination with other antioxidants.

Resveratrol by itself is incredibly powerful, as it seeks out and destroys specific free radicals in your body. But because it’s specific in the free radicals it seeks out, others are left to wreak havoc on your body.

That’s why when you take it with other antioxidants like vitamin C, E, and alpha lineolic acid, it creates a synergistic effect that attacks every kind of free radical threat in your body…giving you a long, healthy, disease-free life.

For example, research shows adding vitamin C or E to resveratrol is more effective at protecting the brain from Alzheimer’s than any one of the antioxidants alone.3

Here’s how you can get this amazing “elixir”of life:

Red Wine: As always, drink in moderation. One to two glasses is all you need to get the anti-aging benefits of resveratrol. Wines from cold regions in Europe such as Burgundy, France have the highest amounts.

Red Grapes: About 1 cup of organically grown grapes should do the trick.

Supplements: Japanese knot wood is the source of resveratrol in supplements. Make sure it’s a standardized extract, meaning it’s high potency. I recommend you take 20mg /day.

I’ve developed a resveratrol supplement that includes the highest potency of resveratrol available. Just one capsule has the equivalent of 10 bottles of red wine. But to increase its anti-aging potency, I’ve added two more of the most powerful anti-oxidants available today.

The first, Green Tea extract, eradicates free radicals floating in your body, the primary culprits in aging. Plus it repairs damaged DNA, and is actually 25 to 100 times more potent than vitamins C and E!

In fact, it’s so powerful that just like resveratrol, drug companies have tried to mimic its incredible anti-aging properties and succeeded. The FDA recently approved a drug called Veregen™. It synthetically duplicates the health benefits of Green Tea extract.

The second anti-oxidant I’ve added is SOD. If there’s one anti-oxidant that is the “grand-daddy” of them all, it’s this one.

It’s so vital, production of SOD starts when you’re in the womb. In one study, genetically engineered mice, whose bodies couldn’t make their own SOD, died in just days from massive free radical damage.4

Together, resveratrol, green tea extract, and SOD form the power-trio behind my newest anti-aging formula, RES3.

To Your Good Health,

Al Sears, MD

I've found that lemon juice is very dense in Vitamin C, 1/4 of a cup of lemon juice providing 46% of your RDI (not that the RDI is relevant to a modern caveman). A glass of lemon juice with some honey (antibacterial and antifungal) will give your body great capacity to ward off pathogens.

Also very powerful is calf's liver, which BK has mentioned before. http://whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=129
Extremely high in Vitamin A, which your body needs in order to use protein to build new muscle, and a range of other nutrients.

Here's another one that might catch your attention:

Natures Viagra a cocktail of: Ginkgo Biloba (80-100mg 3xday)  Arginine (3g 3xday) and Yohimbe

and yes these really work.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indole-3-carbinol
Anybody want anti-cancerous, anti-estrogenic activity? Look no further than your favourite cruciferous vegetable. Blend it up raw and slog it down.
Also, here: we see that the CYP19 enzyme is responsible for turning Androstenedione and Testosterone into Estradiol and Estrone. If one wanted to inhibit their production of estrogens then, all they'd have to do is find out a natural source of the CYP19 inhibitor. The information is probably floating around the net too. Of course there are other ways to increase testosterone, and releasing bound testosterone to free testosterone is another story altogether - but if anyone figures it out, share the knowledge!

wow excellent post. a caveman super scientist very cool! ;)

i did a little digging and i found you your natural CYP19 inhibitor
"flavones"

here is a little blurb about them i found at newsrx.com

"Natural flavones more potent CYP19 inhibitors than flavanones

January 16th, 2005

"Natural flavones are potent CYP19 inhibitors." ;D

"Flavonoids and related structures (e.g, flavones, isoflavones, flavanones, catechins) exert various biological effects, including anticarcinogenic, antioxidant and (anti-)estrogenic effects, and modulation of sex hormone homeostasis."

now flavones come in a variety of colours and flavors

Apigenin is a flavone that is isolated from parsley and celery
Luteolin is most often found in leaves, but it is also seen in celery, green pepper, perilla and camomile tea
Tangeritin is found in tangerine and other citrus peels

they also do a lot of other great things for the body, like clean out free radicals, lower cholesterol as well as promote both the metabolism and the immune system

nothing beats Google, its a caveman's best friend lol. 8)

Good work, now we know how to block estrogen efficiently. Now you probably want to jack up HDL cholesterol levels (as this is the starting point in the steroidal pathway).
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2649645 <- Long story short, a healthy mix of monounsaturated and saturated fats is a good starting point.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16950175 <- As is Niacin, for increasing HDL.

None of that at all matters if it ends up as some catabolic corticoid. As you can see, CYP17 is what makes the anabolic hormones.

http://www.fasebj.org/cgi/content/abstract/6/2/719

So drink coffee. Or, any other inhibitor of cAMP breakdown, which includes anything caffeine bearing. Watch out for the catabolic corticoid release of caffiene, though. Read the abstract at the top of the first page, phospholipids - sunflower oil, soy lecthin, phosphatidylcholine, etc - also induce CYP17.

http://endo.endojournals.org/cgi/reprint/147/11/5249.pdf <--To the point where, apparently, increase in phospholipid synthesis is the major contribution of cAMP.

http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?artid=2099220
^Once you've got all this HDL shunted into DHEA (which you can buy in supplement form in some places), it's ending up as a steroidal hormone - there's no way back.

At that point it makes sense to block the conversion into estrogen or estradiol, so you might as well block it with CYP19 inhibitors as have been mentioned by the poster above me. Or alternatively, indole-3-carbinol which is found in cruciferous vegetables like cabbage or broccoli - blend it to a pulp and drink it raw.

There you have it, a way to naturally increase your testosterone levels. This probably doesn't mean much if you can't increase the amount of FREE (in the blood) testosterone though, so as soon as I can find out I'll post it here lol. By the way I got this information pretty much word for word from a poster on this thread http://www.totse.com/community/showthread.php?p=10468526#post10468526

Excellent thread  :D

I recommend Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca Oil) - it's excellent for treating Athlete's foot, and Jock Itch.  It's also good for stings, bites, burns and cuts.  I've had better results with it than Lamisil (a man-made antifungal agent).

It is native to Australia - unfortunately it may not be cost-effective in other parts of the world.

Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca Oil) - it's excellent for treating Athlete's foot
The best cure for athlete's foot is simple and VERY caveman friendly: pee on your feet in the shower! This is one they teach in survival school and in all my yrs in the military I never had a case of athletes foot even though we shared showers, bathrooms, and lockerrooms with dozens of guys at a time.
