    Thing is if you are lucky enough to find a supplement that actually does anything you better stock up on it because it won't be on the shelves long. The gov will pull that shit quickly.

    Whatever pre workout I can get for cheapest. Fish oil. Creatine if it's lying around and I remember.

    The only things that work for me after 33 years of BBing

    Daily:
    Vitamin D 10,000 IU
    Psyllium Husk Capsules
    Omega 3 Fish Oil Caps
    Niacin 500mg upon waking with 200mg Caffeine
    Vitamin K2 100mcg (Helps absorb the Vitamin D)
    Nutrex Hibern8 before bed
    5% Nutrition Kill It Pre-Workout (on workout days - 2 scoops)
    Low Dose Aspirin before bed
    Liv 52 (double recommended dosage)

    Everything else for me has been a waste of money and time.

    What's your take on supplementing with aminos when you can't eat properly?...Seems like that would be better than using the protein bars...

    Not as meal replacement, no. Use protein powder or bars.

    I'm not completely sold on BCAA's working, but by themselves and with no carbs in them I'm not sure they lead to protein synthesis. Maybe if you included, like, waxy maize with them? I'd have to research & experiment.

    Every Day:
    Multi (orange triad)
    Garlic
    CoQ10
    Cod Liver Oil
    NOW antioxidants

    Often:
    Creatine
    Beta Alin
    AAKG
    Citrulian

    BCAA in my morning coffee if I am in a steep calorie deficit and not On, which is rare.
    I gave up on whey cause it just always makes me break out.

    I take bcaas throughout the day, everyday. You need macros, bro. Food. If can't eat food, for whatever reason, then supplement protein shakes/bars...
