    I've received several personal messages asking me what my health regimen is for keeping my sex life so active at my elderly age of 58. ;) I feel and perform like I'm 16 years old, have a strong healthy cum-load with no refractory period to speak of at all.

    Eating right is smart and, I do that. Exercise is good and, for me, that's what sex is all about.

    I had an episode of ED hit me out of the blue last year so, I immediately went to my doctor and started studying everything I could about ED and hypogonadism. My doctor ran my bloodwork and my testosterone levels had dropped into the basement. Every January of every year, I've always gotten a complete physical exam so, I knew what my all bloodwork levels had shown when I was "normal."

    My doctor started me on testosterone replacement treatment and prescribed 20mg Cialis for me to take every OTHER day. From everything I'd studied about ED, I learned for optimum health, to take the following over the counter supplements, including the one prescription supplement that I take.

    These are the supplements I take every day:

    Acetyl-L-Carnitine, 3000 mg (3gms) Acetyl L-Carnitine per day (two 500mg capsules 3 times daily)
    Alpha Lipoic Acid 1200 mg per day (two 200mgs capsules 3 times daily)
    Avena sativa (five 750 mg capsules 3 times daily)
    BioResponse DIM (one capsule 150 mg daily)
    Epimedium (two 500 mg capsules 3 times daily)
    Fish Oil (Enteric Coated Extra Strength — Costco’s Kirkland Brand) (3 capsule 3 times daily)
    Ginko Biloba (eight 120 mg capsules twice daily)
    L-Argenine (eight 500 mg capsules 3 times daily)
    Maca (two 500 mg capsules 3 times daily)
    Manganese (one 50 mg capsule daily)
    Mara Puama (two 500 mg capsules 3 times daily)
    Mucuna Pruriens (one heaping tablespoon 1000 mg powder 3 times daily)
    Nettle Root (four 300 mg capsules morning and night)
    No Flush Niacin (two 500 mg capsules once daily)
    Panax Ginseng (eight 648 mg capsules 3 times daily)
    Phenyl-ethyamine (5 oz 3 times daily)
    Pump Tech (eight capsules 3 times daily)
    Pygeum (eight 100mg capsules morning and night)
    Saw Palmetto (three 540 mg capsules daily)
    Selenium (two 200 mcg tablets one morning, one night)
    Tongkat ali (one heaping tablespoon 1000 mg powder 3 times daily)
    Tribulus terrestris (one heaping tablespoon 1000 mg powder 3 times daily)
    Vitamin B-100 Complex (five capsules daily)
    Vitamin C (five 1000 mg capsules daily)
    Vitamin E (one 1000 I.U. capsule daily)
    Yohimbine — pharmaceutical (requires prescription) (1gm capsule daily)
    Zinc with Copper (50 mg Zinc one capsule morning, one capsule night)

    This is the regimen I plan on following for the rest of my life. I have to tell you its working GREAT so far. In my opinion, life is too short to be a cheapskate, especially when it comes to my health.

    All of the above contributes to the amazing sex life I enjoy which many of you commented on in your personal messages.

    Hope this information helps.

    Best Regards to You,
    Sharps-Rifle

    * ring! * ring! *

    "Hello?"

    "Hi, may I speak to Sharps, please."

    "I'm sorry, he's in the kitchen taking his supplements."

    "But I called 3 hours ago and he was doing that."

    "Well, he'll be done by bedtime but we'll be busy all night *giggles* so you might try tomorrow."

    "But won't he be in the kitchen taking his supplements again all day tomorrow?"

    "Bingo."

    Hello Sharps,
    In doing your physical did your doctor do an MRI of your head to see if you had a tumor on your pitituary gland. I was having the same problems and my hormone levels went to the basement and I was having ED. After the doctor checked and found the levels so low he sent me to a Neuro doctor. He ran the MRI and found why I had such low levels. The tumor had grown where the pitituary gland is and the pitituary gland makes the male hormone. Well the tumor was so large it destoryed it and now I have to take hormone injections every two weeks. There has to be a reason that your levels went so low and this is a common thing to get a tumor there. If your doctor will not check it out get checked your self. If it grows too large the next thing that it affects is your sight.
    The only way they can see it is on MRI not regular X-Ray. The surgery is gotten much simplier. They go up through your nose to get to it. No open surgery anymore and no scar. Some doctors still do it the old way up through your mouth.

    Hey Penilecode:

    Yep, I knew to have the MRI done and told the doctor to set me up for that first thing. The results showed there was no tumor of any kind.

    I monitor my health like a fanatic because my sex life is a number one priority for me. In fact, I micromanage it by having my bloodwork levels done every week. I take the Quest Diagnostics request form, fill it out, have my doctor sign it and get everything you can name tested every week. Its my body and I aim to keep it hard and humpin' till I'm dead. ;)

    Best Regards,
    Sharps-Rifle

    Hi Iggy:

    If it means maintaining my health in an optimum condition and being able to enjoy sex as I have always -- the amount of pills or the amount of money they cost is my last concern.

    Because I order each supplement in bulk I spend anywhere from $300-$700 a month to keep a good supply of everything on hand.

    For my health, that's CHEAP insurance and, as some advertiser out there once said "...and I'm worth it."

    Best Regards,
    Sharps-Rifle

    Sharps,
    You take nearly as many supps as I do! [hehe] But I'm also a little obssessive compulsive. I'm going to be 50 this year, and have had 8 years of hell. Just going through 2nd divorce in 4 years. My hormones are way down, but mostly because of stress and trauma.

    However, I still do workout, and although I've laid off the supps temporarily, (I find my body adapts to them if I use them continually, so I take a break for a month or so, then resume) I'll be back in the swing pretty soon.

    I'm trying to regroup and get on a strict workout routine, eating routine, and get ripped for my 50th b-day later this year and take some pics. It's my goal and dream.

    Thanks for the info. I can see that it would work. Have you ever tried 60X0, or Novedex? It's for keeping testosterone levels stable after cycling on boosters like 1AD, etc.

    Another thing I've learned as I age, is that testosterone is made entirely of essential fatty acids. (EFAs) As I drop some carbs and replace them with proteins and fats, I find my body runs more optimally, and my brain is clearer. (Brain feeds on fats and sugars. Helps keep fat off, too) I use Udo's Oil, or Lemmon's Oil which you can do a search online and find. They are complete EFAs. Other EFAs are olive oil, flax and fish oils, etc.

    I have also learned to add some anitoxidants like vits C and E at bedtime combined with Zinc and magnesium. Helps rebuild tissues from workouts, etc, and helps reduce recovery time.

    I don't have a big budget at all after all the crap I've been through, so I stick with basics and it works. A lot of hormones is about what you eat, and how you assimilate it. Both have to be good.

    Love the great advice, man. Thanks mucho.

    Dan

    Hi Dan:

    Thank you for your response to my post.

    I don't think I'm obsessive/compulsive so much as I just like several hours of sex every day. ;)

    I've heard other people say their systems build up a tolerance and therefore, they have to quit taking the supplements for awhile then go back on them later. I have NEVER experienced this. My current regimen keeps me strong and energized, as I said, I feel and can perform like I'm 16 years old.

    No, I've never tried 60X0, or Novedex. Pump Tech works well for me.

    Yes, I knew about EFAs and I only use extra virgin olive oil (love that stuff!) and as I stated in my list of supplements, I take fish oil everyday. I've got flax oil too which I also take everyday -- just forgot to put it on the list.

    You mentioned "recovery time" -- did you mean the "refractory period" after the first round of sex? With me, the large amount of mucuna pruriens that I take every day kills off most of the prolactin in my system so that I don't have any refractory period to speak of. In other words, after I ejaculate I'm able to get hard and go again and again -- most days up to about 7 rounds before I start getting tired. Please don't misconstrue -- I'm not bragging here. This is the way I've enjoyed my sex life for many many years. Its what I'm used to and, just because the years are moving along more quickly than I like these days, I refuse to slow down. That's what I need all the supplements for -- LOL!!! ;)

    My philosophy is simple. Good diet, upbeat attitude, and LOTS of sex every day keeps a body young and full of joy.

    Best to You,
    Gene

    Hi again Iggy:

    I DO eat and live healthy and, I always have. But, as I said in my first post, I got hit with an episode of ED last year. I immediately went to my doctor and took care of that situation right away. In studying and learning about ED, I found out that a daily regimen of testosterone replacement treatment along with a 20 mg. Cialis tab every other day would not allow me to carry on sexually as I always had before ED hit.

    With only a good diet, the testosterone replacement treatment and the Cialis -- I was able to ejaculate only three times a day and then I would get tired. I am NOT used to that! Plus, I thought my wife was going to leave me for not being able to put out the way I always had before. She expects at least 7 or more rounds and, without the supplements I could barely squeeze out 3 ejaculations a day. This was not good enough for me and, it certainly wasn't pleasing my wife!

    Taking the supplements enables me to carry on what I consider to be a normal sex life. I have plenty of energy all the time and am back to my regular self. When you get to be my age, you gotta do what you gotta do!

    Best Regards,
    Sharps-Rifle

    ahh... Thanks for explaining more of your condition... My dad who is in his middle 50's is also experiencing ED. I think its partly genetic, and unhealthy living(too much fatty foods, and low fiber diet). He is also experiencing elevated sugar, uric acid and cholesterol... Everybody is urging him to cut down on fat, uric acid rich food and more vegetables. With that, i suppose, im at a higher risk of the said diseases...
