I've tried this 5 different times. I always get incredible results strength wise but after a few days I always get pain in my knees. What could be the reason for this and is there something I could do about it?
I'm doing between 4-8 drops before bed.
As the results are so good I really wanna continue but the knee pain ***** up with my squatting.
I get this from tanked cortisol more than low estrogen personally, but I may have naturally low estrogen.
But they are all related, so you need more information. Ray Peat has written that lowering estrogen lowers cortisol, so the body must regulate their ratio also. Attending to both is probably ideal.
Phosphatidylserine is excellent at reducing cortisol and is known to increase the testosterone/cortisol ratio. The increased testosterone could aromatize into estrogen though.
I would imagine if both stress hormones were lowered you would be very dry and not retaining much fluid.
You could possibly take something specifically for joint health, but probably just try 1 drop instead? Or every other day?
Bodybuilders would stack an additional aromatizing hormone in, one that specifically lubricates joints, to balance things out.
Those are some options, best of luck!
