Superfood Thread


#1

After a layoff for more than four months, I’m trying to get back into again (for the 100th time). Given that I’m 52, four months layoff pretty much takes you back to ground zero. This time “making a comeback”, I’m going to focus a little more on trying to get healthy while looking good nekid. Ha! So, I’m going to add Superfood to my morning Metabolic Drive shake. I’m shelving my stock of MAG 10 and Plazma until I reach a good fitness level again. At my age and effort, it takes a good month of consistent lifting to get back in enough shape where I feel like I’m actually working out again. Until that stage, it is about not injuring myself, creeping more weights back onto the bar and trading some fat for muscle. I searched threads and haven’t seen anything recent about Superfood. So, if anyone else is using the supplement, please chime in. I’m curious to see if anything noticeable happens. In terms of other things I regularly take:
Alpha Male - greatest supplement ever (have been taking for years)
Rev-V - on weekends when not taking Alpha Male
Flameout - daily after dinner
Curcumin - when I remember
Rhodiola - during the week only
Mineral Support/Z12 - most nights
Brain Candy - daily (I’m not a coffee person)
only non-Biotest is Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar.
Before you mention it, I’ve been a Biotest homer for years and my total dollar spend shocks me. Ha!

Because it’s more appropriate over in the Biotest forums. It’d be better to repost there, and you can find some other threads about it as well.

Superfood’s not the kind of supplement you feel a noticeable difference from. Unless you can “feel” something like a stronger immune system from the antioxidants and whatnot.

FWIW, the most common way I take Superfood is throwing it into the batter when I occasionally make Metabolic Drive pancakes. If I’m feeling wild, I’ll toss a scoop into a chocolate MD shake and blend it, for like a choco-berry smoothie thing.

Does superfood have that stuff that’s in Broccoli that is supposed to supress Myostatin?

Superfood contains broccoli sprouts and kale, which are both high in sulforaphane, yep.
