In fitness, most of your results will come from following your diet and training, and no pills, powders, or potions will ever change that.
Supplements just aren’t as important as many fitness folk believe. While some can speed up results and improve health, many (if not most) are duds.
For instance, branched-chain amino acids are said to boost muscle growth, but a growing body of evidence shows they don’t. Garcinia cambogia is one of the most popular weight loss supplements of all time, but studies show that it’s a flop. The same goes for the go-to supplement for boosting testosterone, Tribulus terrestris.
If you have the budget, however, there are supplements you should consider because some can enhance many meaningful aspects of your body composition and physiology, including muscle growth, fat loss, strength, inflammation, heart health, mood, brain and gut health, insulin sensitivity, energy levels, immunity, and more.
Seven of the most worthwhile supplements to consider are:
That’s also their order of importance.
Protein powder is at the top because it makes eating enough protein easy.
A high-quality multivitamin is next because many people don’t get enough of certain key nutrients through their diets.
Then there’s vitamin D and fish oil, because maintaining adequate D and omega-3 intake benefits your health and performance in many ways but is tricky with food alone.
Next is creatine because it’s the single best supplement you can take for boosting strength, muscle growth, and post-workout recovery.
After that are supplements to help your joints, because aches and pains kill progress and motivation, and vitality supplements that increase energy and well-being, because the livelier you feel, the better your workouts are, not to mention everything else in life.
