What Supplements Do You Take?

Aug 28, 2016 Eric Toussaint 6 Comments

As we engage in intense training and proper nutrition there are time where certain supplements and vitamins do come in to play. The question then is simply – “What to take and how much?”

I by no means can give you a definitive answer or recommendation other than sharing my own own anecdotal experiences.

Here are what supplements and vitamins I currently take and why:

Creatine twice a day – to help put on muscle
Branched Amino Acids (before and after workouts) – for better recovery
Glucosamine Chondroitin Sulfate – for my joints
Multivitamin – to cover what I may miss from meals
Turmeric and Curcumin – for inflammation
Omega 3-6-9 – General Body Functions
Trace Minerals – General Body Functions

To be honest who really knows how much these supplements and vitamins help and any ergogenic aid will give you a 2% boost at best.

I still train hard sometimes up to ten workouts a week so I just try and cover all the bases that I may be missing nutritionally and get a little help with recovery. I seem to be able to still keep pace so I’ll continue with this supplement regimen for the time being and let you know if I change it up.

Let me know what you take…
