What Supplements Do I Take?

During lockdown I got deep into the science of supplementation. I’ve always tinkered with bits and bobs without never really investing time into understanding them. Until more recently..

A small part of my own personal stash

1. Multivitamin – Stay on the safe side. One capsule or pill contains all the RDA’s of vitamins you need each day for general health and well-being.

2. Cod liver oil tablet – May help to reduce inflammation, increase energy, reduce anxiety/depression, lower blood pressure, keep eyes healthy and contain vitamin A&D which helps with clear skin, brain function and maintaining healthy bones.

3. Creatine monohydrate – Increase energy, power, strength, endurance added to the benefit of an increase in your testosterone. Usually found in red meats but available as a powder or tablets. I’ve written an article on this already which you can find here

4. Citrulline Malate – Used as a pre workout substitute and provides you with the energy to complete a strenuous workout. It also increases blood flow and an enhanced pump when used 30 minutes before the gym.

5. Ashwaganda – Another supplement which is used to enhance testosterone, increase muscle mass and strength and also to lower the effects of depression and anxiety. Taken once a day in capsule form.

Ash Waganda – Been my boy for a while now

7. Glycine – Glycine is a product that not many people of heard of but will honestly send you to another dimension if taken before bed. If you like vivid dreams and deep sleep, one of these before bed. Fam. It’s mad. Read my article on glycine here.

6. ZMA – The one in the picture I ripped the packaging for so it’s in the clear box.. Zinc and Magnesium capsule combined into one. Taken before bed to promote restful sleep and also to increase testosterone. Bit of a pattern here. High T = Aggressive, high energy, alpha attitude.

8. Whey Protein powder – It’s the most traditionally recognised supplement that all young bodybuilders will come across. Listen I could write about this shit all day, but in a nutshell just scoop 2 in with your milk if bulking/water if cutting after your workout for 40-50g of protein.

You can download my full supplement guide for free, which goes into much more detail by following this link.

No bullshit either, no sign up you can either download it or not. It is up to you whether you think it’s worth your time or not.

I’m not gonna list all the RDA’s and prices on each one, cause everyone is different. But if you do decide to take some of these, then let me know and I’ll tell you how to supplement it correctly for optimal results.

I would say you can get all of this for under £50 pretty easily though. And they could be a big part of the push you need to take it to the next level and improve your life.

Stay safe, be strong and be the best you.
