Focussed supplement stack for the older guy


One of my followers on youtube asked me [Bora Ecer] – “Gert what do you use today at 55? Is there any change in your thoughts about supplements? Thanks in advance.”

Most of my supplement videos I posted, especially those going viral was of my supplement regime before the age of 50.

So, Bora got a very legitimate question.

Ok, now what has changed after 50 regarding my daily supplement stack?

My focus changed to accommodate the following:

  • Muscle repair and pain management (a critical issue for the over 50 bodybuilder)
  • Promoting gut health (another issue most older people struggle with and after ending on Morphine in hospital this year with extreme gut pain – no laughing matter!)
  • Less strain on especially kidneys (but also liver).
  • Cancer fighting supplements (also no joke – my colonoscopy had 2 pre-cancerous pollups removed this year…so I had to up my game with cancer fighting supps)


Here is a typical day in my supplement regime

Waking up

  • RSO oil – 2 drops (cancer protection and training recovery & pain management). Very interesting stuff and in a month or so will be doing an extensive video about this, so don’t wanna spoil everything now. What is RSO oil? Simply put, the full spectrum Cannabis extract in an oil base. Yip – kid u not! Also very effective is the CBD oil which is the same as RSO without the “trippy” aspects.
  • Iberogast – 20 drops (for gut health) [I order my IBEROGAST from AMAZON]

Skin health

One of the questions I get asked very often is how do I get my skin to look so healthy and young? This is where the Alpha Lipoic acid plays a very big role. Key obviously is also lots of filtered water everyday (2 glasses after waking up then a tall glass every hour) and be weary of too much sun. Off course I also use a good skin moisturizer for the face and then bio-oil for the rest of the body after shower, every-day.

Each of the supplements I use got extensive science studies behind them.

I do not use anything that does not have some solid positive clinical trials behind it even if it was just on mouse or rats at the very least. But it must have PROOF that it works.

In the deepest south of South Africa you will find me. Dwelling in the most beautiful city in the world, Cape Town. I live close to God and try to follow in the footsteps of Christ as led the Holy Spirit. Other passions include Karate and Judo and wrestling (and off course surfing for many years). Karate I did for many years, Judo 4 yrs and for a short period kickboxing until I was knocked silly one time with blood all over and teeth protruding through my lip, but if I have to choose over, I would choose wrestling…simply because of the brutal power against power game with your opponent. Love it. Love my home theatre hobby, my youtube channel and spending time with family! And off course me and my son's new adventure ...and love flying my drone - DJI Phantom 4 Pro For those interested, this blog is my database of all my fitness and transformation knowledge. And NO (!) I am not getting any money for it and neither do I promote anything on it or getting sponsored by anybody. My blog is simply where I want to help other guys living a healthier life and become the best they can be, inside and out and ultimately it is my legacy I want to leave my one and only son – now 13 y/o and already eager to get his 6-pack! So donations very welcome! Just click the donation button... I started my healthy living after a very close call with death at age 40. After much hardship one of my main aims now is to assist other guys with healthy living and transforming themselves inside and out. I don’t know how much grace will still be given me, but I live now every moment to be the best I can be. To be the best bodybuilder I can be, the best father, best husband and best friend to those whom my paths crosses. I want to live a life worth living and not just do what excites me or pleases me. Feel free to contact me directly if you wish. Reading this far, the last bit important info on me you need to know, is that my anchor in life is Jesus Christ. Please bear in mind, English is my 2nd language and as a result their might be spelling, grammatical and other language errors in my blog – I do apologise for this! Wish you all many blessings.
