Confirmed for body odors. If I take both Pine Pollen and Horny Goat Weed things return to normal.
I had a bad night of sleep last night. 4/10 . The weird thing is I was tired at bed time and went to sleep fast but I just kept waking up and falling in a light sleep, dreaming all the time. The dreaming zombie state as I call it. I usually feel not rested after a night like that.
I made five changes in my regimen:
I’m taking Creatine. It could be it but it’s said to be to be non-stimulant and can be taken even before sleep. (for non-pfs people anyway). It boosts testosterone and androgen, but only if you exercise which I haven’t done that much. I’m in the load up period and still suppose to load up for 3 days but I’ll just take the maintenance dose for now until I can fix my sleep.
I’m taking 4.5 mcg of Boron if adding my multivitamin. I doubt this makes a difference. The upper limit is 20 mcg. 10 mcg is used to boost testosterone.
I’m taking Horny Goat Weed once in the morning. Could be that, but it’s supposed to affect testosterone and sex drive, not sleep. Plus I stopped One day and sleep was bad anyway.
Sulforaphane. Yesterday I took around 300 mg. It did make me feel calm yet confident and motivated during the day, and I was sleepy before bed. But I slept bad while just a week ago, before any changes in my regimen, I was saying sleep was getting better. ( 8.5 or 9/10) Today I will reduce to less than 100mg and see what happens.
Sleep patterns: The 2 months school vacation just started in Thailand last week. My sleep patterns are all messed up. I go to sleep at the same time but wake up at 8 instead of 6:30. So instead of 8 hours, I get 9 and half and that, by itself, has always caused bad nights on the next night.
So I’ll fix my night pattern, that’s the best educated guess I can take as oversleeping has always resulted in bad sleep the next night. I’ll cut down Sulforaphane to less than 100mg until I get better sleep. If after fixing my sleep patterns I still can’t sleep good, I’ll have to cut Sulforaphane.
Following my regular rules,Sulforaphane didn’t significantly make me feel better while I did have bad side effects. I still cannot attribute those to Sulforaphane but after fixing my sleep pattern, I’ll know what’s the cause of this bad sleep.
