The chocolate comes from a different supplier, but if you order two 17.5 oz. bars per month that will give you an ounce per day and it will still cost less than in a retail store, even including the charge for shipping.
Based on both research and actual experience, we recommend the following supplements, and we will give you a brief rationale for each.
CAUTION: be very careful when using prescription medications (Cialis, Levitra or Viagra) after optimizing your NO (Nitric Oxide) production following the recommendations on this website or in the book, Survival of the FIRMEST. You could have an exaggerated response with a very prolonged erection (called priapism) that can require a trip to the emergency room. We recommend that you carefully read and follow the precautions in the package insert and start with one-quarter of the lowest dose and gradually increase once you know you are not taking too much of the medication. You should expect to respond to lower doses of these prescription medications after optimizing NO production from your blood vessels.
Omega-3 fatty acids: These healthy essential fats increase NO production by your blood vessels and also help to prevent sudden death, heart attacks and strokes. We recommend 500 to 1200 mg. per day. They should be processed to remove environmental contaminants, and assayed to verify how much EPA and DHA they contain.
Folic acid: This B vitamin is a specific co-factor in the production of NO in the body. The recommended daily allowance (RDA) is 400 micrograms. We do not recommend taking more than the RDA, and if you are getting extra folic acid in wheat bread and cereal or if you eat a lot of veggies, we recommend cutting the tablets in two and taking only 200 micrograms per day. There has been some recent concern that excessive folic acid could increase colon cancer.
