I ordered Cat’s Claw from iherb.com not too long ago, and they have a cool program where they offer free samples with any purchase. So of course I couldn’t turn down free things, and got a whole bunch of samples.
Starting today (Thursday, 10/15/2009), and for the next week, I’m going to try taking the samples I got, along with taking my multivitamins, cat’s claw, and most likely a liquid fast for at least a few days.
Everything I got can be found here (as of 10/09), and here is the list:
Now Foods, Tru-Vegan Powder
Doctor’s Best, Magnesium with Bioperine
Histame Diamine Oxidase (will not be taking)
Ultima Health, Ultima Replenisher
Madre Labs, Immune Punch
Madre Labs, Madre-C, Whole Fod Vitamin C Complex
Natural Factors, Stress-Relax, Pharma Gaba
Whey Protein Isolate, Dutch Chocolate
I will be taking:
1 stress tablet twice daily
1 magnesium tablet twice daily
Cat’s claw, 3 times daily.
1 Adult Multivitamin
1-2 Kid’s Gummy Multivitamins
1 Madre Labs packet for lunch on Thurs & Fri
Tru-Vegan Supplement for dinner on Thurs
Replenish Drink Mix while at the gym on Fri
Whey protein shake after gym for dinner on Fri
I’d like to take acidophilous during this week too, but I’ve ran out of the tablets, and I wasn’t planning on buying more for a while. I might buy Kombucha, which is a probiotic drink, but will not start today (Thursday).
All day yesterday I was sick to my stomach, so this seemed like a great plan. This morning I’m a little hungry, and I’m worried, but I will try to liquid fast for at least a few days. I’ll try the supplements, and add in some juice. There is a good chance I will drink tea, and a slim chance I will have a cup of coffee.
I’m not really trying these products because I think they will make a big difference in the next couple of days, but I’m curious if I try a lot of them at once if I will notice some kind of change in my health. Also, I haven’t really done any research into these products (nor do I endorse them), but since it’s only a small test sample I’m not too concerned about negative outcomes.
