    Hi everyone I hope u guys are doing well. I want to know what supplements or diets you guys are using to boost your stamina and manage fatigue. Are there any special vitamins that you are incorporating in your diet, eating more meat for example. I've recently started cycling to build muscle so I wanted to hear experiences before I start with my own diet.

    It's nice to see that someone else is also cycling for building muscle full stop when I started cycling it was to build muscle even though now I just do it as a hobby. So I might be able to help you with diet. Generally if you are trying to build muscle you want to take care that you eating a good amount of protein. Now this can be in the form of a red meat or a lot of green and you can maybe even supplement your diet with a protein shake such as with Greek yoghurt and cashews. I did start taking supplements because I could not keep up with making elaborate meals everyday.

    Can you share the places where you got your recipes from. That would be very helpful. Also what supplements did you start taking. Thank you

    I don't use any supplements on a regular basis, I simply do my best to get what I need through the foods that I eat. I do get a blood test every year and if the doc sees that I might need a supplement then fine I will take one, but so far that has not been the case in over 60 years. I don't even take vitamin D even though I live in an area that has not only reduced sunlight in the winter but I'm not outside as much during that time either.

    You probably noted that I said on a regular basis, if I get a cold, I will take Cold-Eze to try to shorten the duration and the severity of the cold, and it usually works quite well as long as I start taking the Cold-Eze at the first signs of a cold.

    What I do is not intended for all people, my wife, for example, her body cannot get enough vitamin D from the food that she eats, so she takes a supplement that the doc recommended. So it depends on you, it does not depend on what you think or have read, a doc should be the one to recommend that you need a supplement based on tests they run, most people who eat healthy foods in a balanced diet do not need a supplement. I know the health/vitamin industry will try to make you believe you need all of this stuff, it simply is not true, it's based on bad or fraudulent science due to twisting the facts.

    I was friends with two highly educated health/diet/supplement women who worked in the industry, they were of course educated into that way of thinking, they eat and took supplements to protect them from all sorts of ailments including cancer, they both died from cancer. Over the years I've heard of several others who also died of cancer that were highly educated in this field. I have a sneaking feeling that these supplements may not be very good to take, it's like they overloaded themselves and it became toxic, and over a prolonged exposure to these toxins they ended up dying from the very thing they thought they were protecting themselves from.

    The other thing too is that the body knows how much vitamins and minerals it needs, anything it can't use is peed out, this is why people who take vitamins and minerals will notice that their pee is a bright yellow, they are peeing out their expensive vitamins and minerals without the body using any of it.

    So I'm a big advocate of eating correctly, getting blood tests done once a year to check on such things as well as other things. And let a doctor tell you what you should be taking or not taking. I find it interesting that most doctors recommend not taking anything either, and those that do simply recommend a cheap 1 a day vitamin supplement you can find at Walmart or CVS etc. A lot of people as they get older, usually in their 80's and above have problems with absorbing vitamin B's so the doctor will know this and give those people a vitamin B shot.

    Good day! I'm quite a busy person, so Blessed CBD capsules are fine for me. They have an unobtrusive design, convenient packaging, designed for one month, and the dosage can be different, which will help a polite manager to choose. At least I came across just such a manager.
