Better Performance Through Science

Ben Greenfield's non steroidal treatment

-Triglyceride based fish oil caps (like Pharmax) at 4-6 capsules per day, to increase levels of anti-inflammatory fatty acids.
-4000-6000IU Vitamin D per day (stacked with this with fish oil), as a steroid and hormone precursor.
-4 Recoverease after easy workouts, and 6-8 after very difficult workouts (or races), for accelerating muscle repair.
-250mg Natural Calm magnesium 30-60 minutes before bed, for enhancing sleep quality and testosterone.
-8-10 sprays Topical Magnesium sprayed on any area of body that is sore or stiff post-workout, and also sprayed on quads, calves and shoulders pre-race.
-4 Extreme Endurance in morning and 4 in evening, for controlling lactic acid burn during exercise.
-5 Master Amino Pattern (MAP) before easy workouts and 10 before very difficult workouts (or races), to limit lean muscle damage.
-Adaptogenic herb for balancing testosterone:cortisol ratios and also for stress management – I personally do TianChi, taken on an empty stomach mid morning or mid afternoon) and also Millennium Sports Cordygen VO2 (take in morning or 30-60 min before workouts) 
-Co-Enzyme Q10 every day for anti-aging and cardiovascular performance. I take 1-2 Hammer Race Caps per day, or when traveling, will use Energy28 liquid packets.
-MillenniumSports Somnidren GH or Hammer REM caps for better sleep – either of these 30-60 minutes before bed.
-2-4 ProstElan per day for decreasing testosterone conversion to estrogens and enhancing sexual performance.
