Hmm, Ginger seems not to be effective for my Pois. I tried 3 times. I took 1g 30 min before and I didn't feel anything.
Maybe try take it closer to your time of O. I have actually found ginger does help reduce my symptoms though I have been too chicken yet to take it on its own. I take it on conjunction with diphenhydramine hydrochloride tablet which was helping me to reduce pois. When I first tried ginger I was not that impressed. I then tried some organic ginger from the farmers market and it was then that I noticed the difference. The ginger was hot. I grate it into boiling water to make a tea. I could not tell the weight but its probably a heaped table spoon worth. I have also noticed the closer to the O I take it the better, which was what a lot of guys said about Niacin. I tried taking ginger tea 1/2 hr before I had sex and I was hit with pois worse than previously when I experimented with it 10-5 mins prior. I find when it comes to therapeutic herbal supplements there can be a lot of variation in quality (the % of the active constituents in the herb).
The theory from a few here is that ginger is working because it is anti-inflammatory. If that was the key to its benefit then something like fish oil, krill oil, calamari oil or tumeric would also have noticeable benefit, but I cant recall anyone on here raving about those supplements.
I guess it doesn't matter that ginger is not working for you since Taurine is working really well for you. As long as sufferers here find something that works at least 75% and its not too expensive then its a win. Taurine does not make much difference for me, though in theory its a great supplement. It helped my digestion a little and maybe that was its effect on bile production, but I was hoping for a bigger impact on brain fog.Tyrosine also did not do anything for me and I took that because of it being key input into the production of dopamine. Mucuna Puriens was great but again I had patchy results due to variable quality herb. When I got decent stuff I found I had to cycle it as I developed tolerance really quick (2 days) but that definitely boosted my dopamine levels.
