I was going to get this cart of stuff from purebulk, which is the cheapest I've found
I was wondering  if there was something I was missing
the only issue dosing it myself!  but I have a small scale


Diindolylmethane (DIM)

   L-Arginine HCL
      Coenzyme Q10
      Resveratrol 98%
      Red Wine 50% Polyphenols
      Pomegranate Extract Ellagic Acid

A few comments:

1) I'm not sure how much good CoQ10 will do for a young guy like yourself.  CoQ10 tends to help us middle-aged and senior guys whose levels have decreased significantly.
2) Don't overdo the Arginine.  It can raise Ornithine levels which is not good.
3) If possible, a young guy should try to solve things with lifestyle changes or just supplements temporarily to get over the hump. 
4) Talk to your doc if you have any medical conditions or are on any medications:  supplements can interact, etc.
5) Food should your primary source.

ok then, I'm skipping it
2) Don't overdo the Arginine.  It can raise Ornithine levels which is not good.
whats the max amount I should take a day?  Im thinking 10grams, 5g/ 2x a day

3) If possible, a young guy should try to solve things with lifestyle changes or just supplements temporarily to get over the hump.

-I'm adding the supps to ensure max results, Ive changed the diet and I'm going to get more faithful about lifting/doing more than walk  30mins/day after the 24th

4) Talk to your doc if you have any medical conditions or are on any medications:  supplements can interact, etc.
-check, but I'm not on any meds and am really trying to prevent that from changing. my doc said if I dont get the lipids normal by October, Im going on meds

5) Food should your primary source. 
Yes, Im dieting Im into eggwhites, broccoli,(soon kale, if I can stomach it) I also am using cranberry and pomegranate juice(8oz each with food) and omega3s.

Try 1 gram of L-Citrulline and 1-2 grams of L-Arginine. A young guy should not need more than that.

Do not take more than 2 grams per day of L-Arginine in my opinion.  It may increase your risk of certain (herpes) infections.  (You could take Lysine to try to counterbalance it, but that just seems too much art instead of science.)  Also, there are proteins with lots of Arginine in them.

I have all my windows tinted where I live, even my car to avoid UV light.. But I use halogen bulbs and CFL in my house,  do these emit skin damaging UV light?  What about florescent lighting?

Can I ask how come you're that worried about UV light?  You don't want too much sun exposure of course imo due to malanoma risk and aging.  But there's no reason to be overly concerned.  A little sun is probably good for your circadian rhythm, which is more and more being linked to many aspects of health.

Also, don't forget about taking Vitamin D if you're avoiding sunlight like that.

I ask where I get UV light from because of aging/skin cancer...I'm sure a little UV light is good for me, but I like to know where I get it from.
I spend a great deal of time studying and I dont need to be under lamps that emit UV light that much, even if it is very little.
I take 5k IU of vit D a day and I have UV tint on windows because it helps protect the color of my furniure/seating and I drive into the sun a lot.  A roommate of mine does not have UV tint and she routinely comes home with a sunburnt face from driving into the sun.

Knowledge is power, I just want to know....any ideas?

thanks for finding that stuff
I wasnt sure what to believe, I swear you can find most anything on the internet
but nuts!  I like my halogen and I have to stop using my fluorescents, although at school the buzzzing and the headaches make sense now

so I should stick to my incandescent   old bulbs or get UV screens for my halogen?

I believe incandescents are pretty safe but will try to verify that later.

Btw, according to the study, halogen are worse than fluorescents:

Peak,
you were right, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/craig-cooper/vitamine-e-prostate-cancer-_b_1016922.html
that was a great find, thanks

I contacted the good folk over at http://www.sourcenaturals.com/products/GP1677/  Source Naturals DIM, who say the vit E helps to increase absorption and asked them about an increase in prostate cancer due to vit E and they said nothing to me,but I am less worried about it, but I am still getting dim from pure bulk to avoid it
which has nothing else in it

Well, to complicate matters estrogen is a likely cause of prostate cancer...

so its a catch22?
 or I'm not catching on to the complication?
Diindolylmethane (DIM) can help control and reverse estrogen dominance which should decrease prostate cancer, yet the vit E in this DIM can cause higher chance of prostate cancer?

do garlic pills count as eating garlic to decrease BPH?

4) Onions and Garlic.  Recent studies have shown that onions and garlic very significantly lower the chances of BPH (Benign Prostate Enlargement). [2] Onions were found to be the most protective but garlic was also a powerful BPH Protector.  Men who ate onions four or more times per week had a 59% lower BPH risk than men who never ate onions. Garlic was also found to be protective: men who ate the most garlic had a 28% lower risk than men who never
