I just recently started working night shifts (7pm-7am, between 2 and 5 days a week depending on the week).
I beleive the recommended dosage for 4-AD-EC in the morning or at least before 9am was based on the body’s natural sleep cycles and it’s affects on hormone levels. I also beleive that the same applied for M which I plan to use post cycle.
Since my night/day is flipped for the most part now, how does this affect my diet and supplementation especially ideal times for taking my 4-AD-EC?
Thanks Cy, and others for any additional thought, opinions, and input.
Very good question! The alterations in sleep can often times have rather profound effects on circadian rhythms. While I’ve never looked in to this aspect as much, it would seem easy to simply assume that one could taken the 4-AD-EC shortly after they had awaken from sleep, but that would assume that the body had adjusted. Even if that argument could be made, if you’re not on a schedule like that on a permanent basis, it would be hard to argue for that. I’ll have to look in to this one and get back to you. For the time being, if the night shift working only comprises a small percentage of your week, I’d say to follow the normal (prior-to-9 AM dosing) pattern.
