It has been a while since I have contributed much. Time to change this up a bit. Most of us here are becoming pros if not already pros at conducting scientific research on our bodies in an effort to maximize our potential to be healthy, happy, (for some) monsters.
How many of you have noticed the condition and smell of your pillow? Seem like a random and weird question? If you are like me, you couldn't careless. I just thought it was what it was and I leaked pancake syrup or some shit while I was sleeping. My girl, on the other hand is not as forgiving about funk. So after a bit of research, I found it was my body pH. I, like many of you, am pretty acidic. So much so my sweat can eat the color out of shirts and turn my pillow into a weapon of mass destruction. Even more to the point, I recently trashed a foam mattress topper which had my crime scene outline chemically burned into it because of my sweat. I remember laughing about it with my girl. Now that I think about it, it is a bit distressing.
Now a while back, Joker shared a good article on the Alkaline Diet and why it is shit. Anyone with a brain knows eliminating everything acidic out of your diet and lifting for size is just not gonna happen. I mean really? Do you know any straight vegan monster bodybuilders? I'll wait...
There is no way I am giving up meat and other proteins in my diet and I sure as shit am not giving up wine or beer on occasion. So how do I appease my girl? They make supplements for everything now a days. Don't by the big dick pills though, those fuckers don't work. LOL! Don't believe me, ask Joe Rogan. I ordered a fairly reputable supplement which had good customer reviews and clinical backing. Low and behold, about 4 days after I started taking it, no acidic destruction of my pillow and no sour sweaty stench.
I am not the Doc. Perhaps he and others can chime in with their knowledge and experience in this arena. I just know what I have done works for me.
