My Yohimbine HCL Pulse Experiment Week 3 - Plateaued






Source: myfitnesspal.com tracking.

So I decided to try something I saw in a Alex Kikel youtube video. Intermittent fasting combined with yohimbine hcl.

I fasted for as long as I could stand it every day and took 2.5 mg of Primaforce Yohimbine HCL every two hours.  The weight loss was drastic but I have no idea how much is water, muscle and fat.

Yohimbine HCL: Yohimbine is an alpha2 receptor antagonist (Kucio, 1991), which means it inhibits the action of the alpha2 receptor.

Normal protocol:
How to Take


Recommended dosage, active amounts, other details


Dosages of 0.2mg/kg bodyweight have been successfully used to increase fat burning without significant implications on cardiovascular parameters like heart rate and blood pressure. This results in a dosage of:


14 mg for a 150lb person
18 mg for a 200lb person
22 mg for a 250lb person


Supplementation is most effective between meals or during short term fasting.


Caution should be exercised at higher body weight, since the cardiovascular system may not be prepared to handle a stimulatory agent such as yohimbine. When supplementing yohimbine for the first time, always start with a half-dose and assess tolerance before proceeding.


Caution should also be exercised since many supplements containing yohimbine either do not list how much yohimbine is included, or if they do, the actual dose ranges from 25-150% of the dose listed. Since the dosage may be higher than listed, this is extra reason to start with a lower dose.
When pairing yohimbine with other stimulatory agents, half-dose both supplements and work up to the recommended dose cautiously, as two supplements can interact negatively.

Doctor's Best NAC Detox Regulators with Seleno Excell, Non-GMO, Vegetarian, Gluten Free, Soy Free




From the manufacturer:

NAC supports numerous detox functions NAC's detox value is grounded in its rapid conversion to cysteine that protects the blood and body fluids; the cells' need for cysteine to make glutathione; and direct antitoxin effects by NAC itself. 

Supplies cysteine to make glutathione. Taken by mouth, NAC elevates cysteine in the blood. Cysteine is the predominant antitoxin and antioxidant of the blood and other body fluids. 

Taking NAC is actually a better way to get cysteine than cysteine itself (l-cysteine), which is too unstable to be used in dietary supplements. NAC's acetyl group keeps it stable for its absorption into the blood, then subsequently its acetyl group is removed (mostly by liver enzymes) and the molecule becomes cysteine.

Cysteine may be a conditionally essential nutrient. The diet of some human populations may be relatively deficient in cysteine, and (beginning around the fourth decade of life) glutathione levels decline with age. 

A pioneering cysteine researcher (w. Droge) strongly advocated taking NAC to support healthy aging, suggesting "everybody is likely to experience a cysteine deficiency sooner or later." Sustains the body's glutathione status. 

Glutathione is the most highly concentrated antitoxin and antioxidant within human cells, and adequate glutathione is a must for good health. Glutathione is used to neutralize toxins, whether these originate outside the body or are naturally produced by the body. Healthy cells continually "top up" their glutathione stores by importing cysteine from the blood (not glutathione), then making new glutathione from scratch. 

The supply of cysteine is normally the limiting factor for the cells to make glutathione. Supplementing with NAC therefore helps sustain both cysteine levels in the blood, and glutathione levels inside the cells.

PURENERGY
The innovative patent-protected and technology-driven fusion of caffeine and pTeroPure provides a novel next-generation functional caffeine alternative.

PURENERGY  delivers almost 30% more caffeine into the blood than ordinary caffeine.

~43% Caffeine & ~57% pTeroPure, a 99% pure nature-identical all-trans pterostilbene with seven patents issued or pending.

At 6 hours, subjects taking PURENERGY showed significantly less fatigue and greater concentration, alertness, energy and focus  ompared to baseline. Ordinary caffeine did not.

The potential for a more moderated and gradual finish, may prevent the “crash” experienced with caffeine products and has showed no adverse events.

TEACRINE
TeaCrine works with the body’s natural metabolic processes to deliver longer lasting energy, increase mental clarity and improve mood and motivation.It has a multi-pronged effect that is ideal for physique athletes and driven professionals who want to push harder. TeaCrine initiates and supports metabolic and enzymatic processes that lead to better performance whether on the playing field or in the office.

Supports healthy metabolic activity and energy production
Decreases physical discomfort associated with intense exercise
Increases cellular protection through antioxidant activity

Supports a positive mood and decreased feelings of stress and irritability
*ncreases motivation and neural drive to exercise and accomplish tasks

ALPHA-GPC

Alpha-GPC (Alpha-glycerophosphocholine) Choline is vital for healthy live function and brain development. It aids in nerve signaling, maintenance of brain cell membranes and memory. Ultra Human uses this particular form of choline because it has been shown to be over 40% more bioavailable than any other Choline source. We do not use the cheaper, more common Choline Bitartrate form that many other companies use because it’s of lesser quality and poor bioavailability.

N-ACETYL TYROSINE

This is the more expensive and bioavailable form of Tyrosine. It crosses the blood-brain barrier and you need fewer milligrams making it efficient. It can assist in keeping natural dopamine levels up and optimizing neurotransmitter function leading to better mind-muscle connection for both mental drive and physical performance.

HUPERZINE-A

It’s a cognitive enhancer that inhibits an enzyme that degrades the ‘learning neurotransmitter’, Acetylcholine. Hence it slows the breakdown of choline, keeping the levels high. Correct Huperzine dosing is critical and we incorporate a very specific and proprietary amount of Huperzine that is effective to hit that sweet spot. Too low of a dose will not be effective, too high of  arose can lead to negative side effects and increased tolerance.                  

METHYL B-12


It is an essential vitamin for the proper functioning and development of the brain and the nerve cells. It plays an important role in the maintenance of the sheaths that cover and protect the nerves of the central and the peripheral nervous system, ensuring proper and faster nerve-impulse transmission. Ultra Human doesn’t use a standard B-12. We use MethylCobalamin which is not only the superior absorption form, but it also doesn’t use the lethal Cyanide chemical to produce it.
