It's really individual. Like Nattokinase, many here have results. Me? Nothing. At one time when I started a long time ago, I was seeking chemical solutions for lifestyle problems. I was on it hard, taking 51 different supplements a day. Over the years, with some labs but mostly just perception, that's been pared down to just a couple. It's frustrating, because something could be helping you, but you aren't necessarily going to feel or see any direct results from it. Vitamin D, Creatine, and now trying a different Iron... as well as Humapro, AAS, and a couple of ancillaries. That's all I'm taking now. Took fish oil for years. Now I don't. Not a bit of change to lipids. Never felt anything from Co-Q10, even from other more "exotic" mitochondrial supplements like MitoQ. Niagen? Nothing. I've tried just about everything, including nootropic (oral and injectable). Dihexa was one of the more unusual experiments... made me dumb as a rock for a solid month. It's really not supposed to do that.

I don't eat much fruit but I do get a good amount of assorted veg both colored and green. Not daily always but every other day typically I eat a few salads and add some colored veg to a few meals each day.
I should check what's coming from food yes. I have an app for that just haven't checked in a while.
I don't worry to much about fruit calories/carbs in my normal daily diet. You can have 4 oz of grapes and it's like 20 g carbs. It's natural and what we are evolved to consume. Veggies are great though and probably somewhat substitute for one another. Salads crush my guts though if I consume them more than a couple times a week. I've moved more to cooked veggies, mostly spinach, peas and carrots, peppers, tomato and eggplant.

In the past I wasted alot of money on glucosamine / Chondroitin. Stopped taking it yrs. ago. about 2 yrs. ago I started taking Curcumin which is the yellow part of Turmeric. I noticed a relief of joint pain immediately, especially in my hands. If I stop taking it I notice a difference within days. It is an anti-inflammatory and may have healing properties. I know for sure this supp works.
I also take co-q10, d3+k2, and berberine for low blood sugar. Berberine has a pretty fast response time. Co-q10 and d3 k2 are more like hgh in they take time to build up and start working. Co q10 is for heart health and since I had bypass surgery a yr. ago and it is recommended by my cardiologist I take it.

My list is way too long like many BB'ers. I honestly stopped taking about half what I did because some of it just made me feel like sh*t. I still take upwards of 20 pills. It gets to a point that we take this because we take that and just chase one for another. The most important ones to me are prostate, kidney & liver health, D3 & K2 then digestive enzymes & probiotics, and magnesium. Then there are things like when I am on Tren I have to take a couple acid reducers or I get bad acid reflux, although my cpap helps with that at night

I'm glad to see you taking K2. I'm a believer that with D3 one needs to take K2 as it helps reduce calcium buildup in the blood vessels.

Without having read all of the comments, I would check my vitamins first before taking supplements.
I would suggest you do labs and see if you even need vitamin/mineral supplements at all.
Too much vitamin D or calcium and such is really not good for you.
My dietician threw a fit on me for taking too many supplements.
She asked my why I do all that stuff if I’m already healthy.
She’s told me that if I have a healthy balanced diet that supplements are unnecessary and even harmful.
You can get kidney and gall stones from too much calcium and vitamin D.
I’ve learned over the years that when it comes to supplements, less is usually better than more.
We all already consume too much protein as it is, which is taxing to our livers, too.
Long term use of protein supplements can cause kidney disease/failure.
I’ve seen it happen to who guys who drank protein shakes all day long.
They’re irritating to your digestive tract too.
I stopped taking so many supplements two years ago and I feel much better as a result.
Also, I’m not a fan of creatine because part of its mechanism causes water retention.
Bad for your bp.
Also, keep in mind that although daily consumption levels may not be unsafe, long term use at such levels may be.
Most of the effects of vitamin/mineral overdose appear gradually.
I disagree on the long term protein causing kidney failure and liver issues, do you have any facts to base that upon?
The creatine is SUPPOSED to cause water retention in the muscle cell it also helps with brain function, glucose metabolism and bone mineral density.
I have used it off and on for 25 years or so.

My list has been a mile long in the past now it is very short and I am kicking ass almost as good as ever.
Whey protein
creatine
pre-workout
multi vitamin
Viagra or cialis now and then,....
occasional Monster energy drink
Never and drugs or alcohol, tobacco etc.
all the rest I have found are cute and fun and not needed
PUT IN THE WORK that is what does the trick.

I read in Scott Stevensons book that the studies show high protein won't hurt your kidneys. Maybe in some cases if your kidneys aren't functioning properly but in a healthy person it's safe long-term.

This is correct with many studies to back it up
