Maitotoxin's Supplement Guide

Background

The purpose of this guide is to help people achieve and maintain the greatest level of health possible.

This guide will primarily focus on the use of supplementation to achieve this goal. While advice about diet and exercise comes cheap, the simple fact is that it takes a lot of motivation and discipline to maintain exercise and diet goals.

Supplementation with the right plant medicines and other types of supplements can have equally dramatic effects on your health as dieting and exercising, but with minimal effort.

The improved health that enjoy from following my advice can spill over into the other areas of your life, leading you to greater motivation and desire to achieve your other goals and follow through with establishing the healthy habits and lifestyle changes that will make you live a long, happy, healthy life!

This guide is not a peer-reviewed scientific article. I usually will not cite sources for my claims, but I will often use statements like `studies have found X'. It is tedious and inconvenient for me to look up references for facts that I have picked up over the years. I soak up facts about this subject like a sponge, but I do not waste my time memorizing exactly which scientific articles back up these facts. If this bothers you, then it is up to you to take my advice or leave it.

This information is what I have gathered from countless hours reading longevity and bodybuilding forums, including thousands of subjective first-hand account of what these plants and supplements do for people, and from my own in-vivo experimentation with over a hundred different plants, supplements, and drugs over five years of my life.

The Basics

1. Fish oil 2. Vitamin D 3. Magnesium 4. Piracetam

If everyone in America would take just these four things, well, the world would be a pretty amazing place. Let's go through the list of how these can improve a person.

Fish Oil

- Cardiovascular

- Cognitive function

- Mental health

The typical diet in developed countries, especially America, contains way too much omega-6 fatty acids, relative to omega-3. The worst offender is corn. Corn oil contains a lot of omega-6 and almost no omega-3. In the United States our government heavily subsidizes corn, and then lo and behold, everything we eat has corn in it. Because corn is so cheap farmers feed it to their livestock, and then when we consume dairy products or meat, all of that omega-6 is getting passed along through the food chain to us.

What does it do when it's in our system?

Omega-6 and omega-3 are like yin and yang, two sides of a body system that regulates the level of inflammation in the body. Some inflammation is a good thing, inflammation is your body's way of dealing with injuries and other problems. Inflammation gets the blood flowing to the spot and tells your body's immune system to perk up and deal with this!

However, when we have too much omega-6 and not enough omega-3, our bodies get over-inflamed. Especially our blood vessels and our cardiovascular system. Too much chronic inflammation causes all sorts of problem, including atherosclerosis, also known as “your arteries clogging up”.

Supplementing omega-3 helps to keep your omega ratio normal despite all the corn and the general poor state of the average American diet. Your blood flows better, your heart feels better, everything going on in your body involving fat and its metabolism works better and more smoothly.

I understand the actions of supplements in a sort of unscientific, almost poetic way sometimes, so bear with me please (this will come out to play later). Fish oil, when I take it, I understand it as sort of balancing out all of the other fats in my diet, keeping my lipids clean and smooth throughout my body, burning off like they are supposed to.

It keeps your connective tissue healthy, it keeps your skin nice and fresh and with a healthy glow. In fact, you can try taking fish oil in the winter, when your skin gets dry. You'll find that with enough omega-3, your skin stays smooth and hydrated even when it's windy and zero degrees outside!

But really, taking a decent amount of fish oil daily will significantly decrease your risk of all sorts of major problems: Heart disease, stroke, clogged arteries, cholesterol problems.

But understand, it is not simply preventing disease, it is that the fish oil is making you healthier right now and that is what prevents the disease. This is important to understand.

Fish oil also helps you to mobilize fat for burning when you exercise, in other words, it keeps your fat metabolism going strong and healthy. You can maintain a better BMI, and stay healthier even if you are obese, and fish oil will do nothing but good in helping to prevent the harm associated with obesity while making it easier to lose weight.

A whole other class of beneficial aspects of fish oil come from its effect on the brain.

The omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil come in two types: EPA and DHA. Your brain is mostly just a bunch of fat, and a huge proportion of that fat is DHA. So when you take fish oil, you are quite literally eating brains. No, just kidding, what I meant to say is that when you take fish oil, you are providing the building blocks for further growth of your brain.

You might say, “growth of my brain? I thought brains didn't grow!” This is not true. This is what people (science) used to think in the 90s. It is now known that brains grow all the time. Whenever you learn, your brain is growing. This is literally new baby neurons being born and making connections with neighboring neurons. This ability of your brain to change, to adapt and learn all the time, is called neuroplasticity.

You want to make maximum use of this neuroplasticity, because adaptation and learning is the key to being happy and surviving during difficult times (more about that later). So in order to make maximum use of your brain's natural neuroplastic ability, you need to supplement with the raw materials to allow it to grow. Fish oil does this.

This is not just theory. There is evidence that fish oil is good for brains. Fish oil has been found to have great benefit for pretty much all mental health problems, depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, ADD, everything. To be specific, a study found that patients identified as being at very high risk for a psychotic episode were much less likely to have a psychotic episode compared to a control group if they were given fish oil.

Subjectively, fish oil makes you feel better, more mentally fit. There are reports in certain circles of people taking very high doses of fish oil, like ten or more grams per day. At that level, these people find that their cognitive ability gets a lot better, they can memorize and focus better, and they have more mental energy. One things to know is that when you take very large amounts of fish oil like this (>5g/day), it's important to also supplement some extra vitamin E (just like 400IU 1-2x/day), because otherwise the fish oil oxidizes (turns rancid) in your liver, and that's bad and the fish oil won't do any good then.

The recommended dose is to take 3g per day, to start off with. There's no harm in going higher than that, just make sure to supplement like 400-800IU of Vitamin E if you start taking more than 5g/day.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is the sunshine vitamin. Our bodies make vitamin D in our skin when we go outside and get exposed to ultraviolet light. That's one of the reasons why getting outside and getting some sun, especially during long dark winters, makes up perk up and feel happier.

If you live decently far north and aren't outside all the time, then you almost certainly aren't getting enough vitamin D during the winter. It never hurts to get more during the summer, too.

There is a myth going around about vitamins, that all you need is 100% of the Recommended Daily Allowance and then that's all your body will make use of, and any extra gets peed out. Well that's not true, at least not for all but a few vitamins. The truth is that taking higher amounts of vitamins, well beyond the RDA, can have various effects on body systems, both positive or negative, depending on the vitamin in question.

The RDA is also just a bad number for probably most vitamins. For example, if you were to take only the 100% RDA for Vitamin C, then that is just barely enough to prevent you from getting scurvy. It is not, however, enough to put your consumption of Vitamin C in the optimal health zone. You can benefit a lot more from 500% RDA of vitamin C than barely eking by with only 100% of the RDA.

It's a similar situation for vitamin D. There may be a person who goes outside, eats a typical diet, gets there little bit of extra vitamin D from fortified milk (most milk in the United States is vitamin D fortified), yet when they go in to the doctor and get their vitamin D levels checked, they are below the optimal range.

There's a good chance that you're below the optimal range, in fact. You're in the nice comfortable range where you don't get rickets, and your bones stay nice and strong, and you can absorb calcium, but you could be healthier getting those vitamin D levels a little higher.

Vitamin D is actually a steroid. You heard that right! Being a steroid doesn't mean that it's going to make you big, it just means that it has a certain characteristic steroid structure within the molecule.

But being a steroid is interesting because the other steroids in our body are things such as testosterone and estrogen. Vitamin D is actually a hormone, just like these other two. Hormones are chemical messengers that have very wide-ranging effects, nearly every cell and tissue in the body is sensitive to hormones, they are `global regulators'.

Not surprisingly then, vitamin D is good for just about everything…

Magnesium

Piracetam

Piracetam is the most classic example of what is known as a nootropic drug. Nootropic drugs are drugs that improve cognitive function, but do so safely and without harmful side effects.
