Protien and believe it or not L carnitine. Through self experimentation My cycles are better with L carnitine

I really don't take shit other than protein. I never really got into supps because overall I never needed them. I try to get everything through food and drinks.

A well balanced diet does the trick for me as far as vitamins and nutrients go. Supplement with some BCAA/EAA's around training and in between meals to help stay anabolic and you should be fine. Wasted a lot of money on all that supplement crap when that money could have gone towards some good steaks.

I still believe that glutamine , super digestive enzymes, pineapple and a trick called bubbies sauerkraut has helped some bloating i had after eating larger meals and really set my digestion optimal

That looks good to me, multi and zma at night. the only other additions I would think to add are essential amino acids. And possibly some Branch chain amino acids to sip on during your workouts. As I've gotten older I've had to add in ubiquinol. That's it. Pretty well-rounded

Edit: I no longer take zma. I take a zinc complex, 30mg. And magnesium taurate 200mg morning. Magnesium glycinate 200mg night. I mean we're out there stimulating the f*** out of our nervous system, why not give it a chill pill lol

I try to avoid supplements at all costs. I'd rather buy fresh fruit and spend the difference on grass fed beef...

With that being said...

A quality multi vitamin with a good profile and protein are still part of my regiment, when and where I can afford to utilize them as supplements.

BEFORE I started my lifestyle decision to better my health with real fresh fruit and beef I used pretty much any supplement I could get.... And they worked. It was more of a "shield" than it was a base of armour. I think you can go a long way with things like fiber supplements (can be easily replaced with fruit peels and veggies but not as convenient) , weight gainers for quick dirty weight gain, loading from extracts for "health" (masking side effects from bad diet) , heart health supplements like coq10 (masking side effects from lack of fresh fruit and bad diet choices) , as well as plenty of other questionable supplements that are really at best nothing more than masking agents for people who are addicted to drive thru convenience. Lmao. I always lol when people think they are somehow the equivalent of fresh fruit and vegetables when they pig out on garbage quality food and dump supps on top. No. Just stop.
