    Pure Essence account

    Just a curiosity... Why would one need to log in an account in order to order from the company? In other words couldn't a person simply pay and give a shipping address without an account?

    Insulin use.

    I didnt find it. I see it every day. An elderly peron can become diabetic in old age. This is true. But life long insulin dependent diabetics often have kidney and neuro problems. Beyond that, animals once starting insulin often only live about three years after becoming insulin dependent. Some...

    Insulin use.

    People AND animals that are on insulin live considerably shorter lives. Mostly due to kidney failure and other complications. So for that reason, I would not touch it. The risk/benefit ratio is just not good enough to me.

    Relitive strength

    Barbell presses do not agree with my joints so although i did like BP back in my youth, i cant do it anymore for longevity. At 124 i maxed out at 275 but obviously i damaged some joints from that kind of excess.

    Relitive strength

    All i do is 20+ rep sets. I do not barbell press so I am out of this game but it is definitely a good workout for bringing out a tighter physique with a more vascular look..

    support belts

    I just drop the weight super low and and rep out goblet squats, front squats, and snatches. The gym rats give me crazy looks but i dont give a damn. Ive been squatting for longer than many of them have been alive so I have to work around old man issues.

    N-acetyl cysteine (NAC)

    Ive been using NAC, ALA and Milk thistle for a good while, along with other things. I will always take them because organ health and environmental and lifestyle toxins are always around. It is always a good idea to keep liver and kidneys healthy. Rich Piana's Organ Defender has a great...

    Mass gainers

    I stay away from anything that says low fat. Drink whole milk. Never buy low fat things since they are watered down chemical filled crap with artificial sugars. I put on some weight using weight gainers. It doesnt matter the brand really. If you can tolerate whey protein you can pick up any. The...
