What Supplements Do You Take?

34 posts in this topic

I recently added some supplements.

I am currently taking:
 

  • Creatine Monohydrate (On workout days, i take it after the workout, on rest days i take it once i wake up)
  • Impact Whey Protein (depends on what i eat, but i try to get my daily 160g of protein through food, if i cant i consume protein powder
  • Omega 3 (every day in the morning with my breakfast [on days i dont eat fish, which is quite often] )
  • ZMA (before i go to sleep, every day)
  • Coffeine (pre work out, i avoid it on rest days)
  • Green Tea Extract (i take it on rest days, instead of coffeine)

Morning:

Kirkland Cod Liver Oil x2
Alive! Multivitamin
Milk Thistle 
Multivitamin Tonic (liquids are absorbed straight into the system, they require no digestion by the gut)

Daily (at any point):

L-Glutamine (gut healing, ideal for those doing intense exercise regularly)

Evening:

ZMA (Zinc Magnesium Aspartate) - good for sleep + recovery
5-HTP 100mg - A precursor to serotonin and hence a sleep aid.  Helps to seal the gut membrane, ideal for those with food intolerances and thus a leaky gut (to varying extents).

For anyone interested in learning about the importance of the human gut and its connection to issues such as ADD, depression and other mental illnesses feel free to hit me up on PM, I'd be more than happy to educate.

Do you workout?

If so, why dont you take creatine at all?

If you need sleeping aid i can recommend GABA :)

ZMA, helps me regenerate a bit faster and also sleep a bit better.

I eat a lot of vegetables and fruits , every day combined with my chicken

Because Green Tea itself has a very low/unknown amount of EGCG. My Green Tea extract hast 55% EGCG which helps with cutting

Over Summer I've just been playing football/soccer and cut back on the lifting, so there's been no need for creatine.  I would normally use Genetic Supplements creatine as their product contains genuine Creapure and hands down beats some of the other stuff I've tried.

I've never come across GABA but I'll have a read of some of the published research papers :)
