  1. Been taking Chlorella for around 8 months now ( 10 tiny tablets daily 20 on fasting days). From own experience I can tell that this is one of the best and most potent things out there. What I've noticed is (all of these could however be related to my transition to plant based diet) improved energy balance throughout the day, no more mind fog after lunch easier waking up better recovery after gym improved calmness and piece of mind ( could be related to meditation) improved awareness throughout the day ( could be related to meditation again) lower cravings for sugary food haven't had any sickness for a long time overdose is not a problem but turns your poop green For both Chlorella and Spirulina it is super important to buy a highly digestible source otherwise you will poop it all out. Curious about baobab, never heard about anyone trying to eat it.
  2. @Nahm love GOL products. I think they are one of the very few left who are still clean and reputable. Perhaps along with VEGA and Sun Warrior, top 3 producers of sports nutrition and food supplementation.
  3. @Max_V if you are unsure on how to thrive on vegan/vegetarian diet I'd suggest read Dr Michael Gregger's book "How Not to Die." This is purely based on collection of scientific research, no bullshit. Very easy to read and packed with potentially life saving information for some people. Give it a go
  4. @Charlotte Quick search on NCBI showed peppermint oil https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4289931/ as well as levander oil https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4843973/ to have some effect Didn't read the whole thing though so have a look at both papers before trying anything yourself Other than that minerals like Zinc, Iron, Selenium Vitamins A, E and certain B vitamins may be helpful, ideally taken in form of food not supplement. Adopting a wholefood diet could be a way to help boost the hair growth and quality since it is really easy to get in all these nutrients.
  5. I would add an excellent book from J.J.Ratey - Spark. Focused on scientifically validated benefits of exercise if anyone was interested
  6. One of the best videos out there. No bullshit, based on actual research.
  7. @Leo Gura They will get another chance in the next incarnation. I know I am deviating from the topic but care to explain how exactly do you mean that?
  8. @Quader if I can add my 2 cents. What convinced me the most was a document called Eartlings - Land of Hope. I would encourage you to watch it full and formulate your opinion on that. This is what it takes to develop the awareness, this is the movie that woke me up.
  9. @Marinus there is an overhwleming evidence that diet is related to acne. Milk is the number 1 suspect https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21335995 "Both, restriction of milk consumption or generation of less insulinotropic milk will have an enormous impact on the prevention of epidemic western diseases like obesity, diabetes mellitus, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases and acne." https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2715202/ "The evidence assembled here suggests that dairy-sourced hormones, not being subject to any innate feedback inhibition, may be the source of the androgenic and mitogenic progestins that drive acne, prostate and breast cancer." https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27241803 Consumption of low-fat/skim milk, but not full-fat milk, was positively associated with acne. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15692464 We found a positive association with acne for intake of total milk and skim milk. We hypothesize that the association with milk may be because of the presence of hormones and bioactive molecules in milk.
  10. @pluto , yeah spirulina is a Blue-green algae and Chlorella is green Algae. BG and G have slight difference in cellular structure, the way the feed, reproduce and where they are located. They are also different in nutritional density so taking both is a good idea to complement. The only downside of Spirulina is that it is ridiculously difficult to digest, the cellular wall is nearly unbreakable by the chloric acid. That goes both way for Chlorella however there are companies who produce both in a very digestible manner. I do not have much experience with Spirulina but the most reputable source of Chlorella I found is SunChlorella in Kyoto, Japan who use the DYNO-mill method https://www.sunchlorella.co.uk/products/what-is-chlorella which allows nearly 100% digestibility, they have donated some of their products to research, there were few studies on NCBI, look them up if you are interested . A packing of 1500 of these costs 130 USD on Amazon, a bit cheaper here, in UK. Don't have any E3 experience myself since it is nearly impossible to obtain here unless I would want to pay some ridiculous custom tax but their products seem to have a lot of good reviews.
  11. haha nice workaround mind can only focus on one thing at a time eh?
  12. Many of the "fast readers" actually just fly unconsciously through the book and end up remembering nothing. I used to do that so that I could brag about how many books I've read. Yes, you can probably do that with crappy vampire books but a true valuable book may take weeks, or even few months of note taking, underlining, practising and rewinding. Perhaps instead of that, think where you are wasting time in your daily schedule that could also be invested into reading.
  13. Exactly as @pluto said. Why would you eat the fish oil when you can get it from the very prime source. Blue&Green and Green Algae are the ancient forefather of all live on this planet. They are one of the most potent plants on this planet if not the most potent. The speed with which they replicate is mad! Yes, fish oil does give you the levels of ALA and DHA that one needs to protect from cardiovascular diseases and brain degradation but along with it come all the pollutants contained in the oceans like mercury, cadmium POPs, plastics and pharmaceutical drugs. Ever heard of the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch"? Goggle it before putting another capsule of FO in your mouth. And no, Algae do not take in that stuff, if anything algae help you pull that stuff out of your body. E3 Live from Klamath Lake in Oregon, is probably one of the best products on US market currently. This stuff is now becoming quite affordable for majority of population to buy.
  14. do not go to the business school....
  15. Powerful stuff indeed! Curcumin is the component that is so appreciated in it. Very powerful in GIT/respiratory cancers, inflammations and bacterial infections even shown to slow down the alcohol intoxication. The only issue with Curcimin is its poor digestability and low bioavailability which often leads to overdose causing rash, diarrhoea, nausea and headaches. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3535097/ Excellent summary of various studies.
