Supplements

Eat right and you don't need them. Unless you know for a fact that you have a measurable deficiency, you can get all the vitamins and minerals you need from your food, provided you eat quality foods. For simplicity, I find it useful to avoid cereal grains, vegetable oil, and legumes. The only supplements I take from time to time are fish oil, vitamin D, curcumin, and possibly a high quality post-workout protein for convenience. The typical Western diet has far too much omega-6 fatty acids compared to omega-3's. You can correct this by supplementing with a quality fish oil. Unless you have immediate access to a kitchen right after your workout, a high quality protein can be useful.  The vast majority of supplements sold in stores and online are extreme hype, loaded with deception, and a waste of money, and at best, do nothing at all, and at worst can harm you. None of them are regulated by the FDA, so you take them at your own risk.

It's tempting to believe there are magic potions and concoctions that can enhance your performance. Having this mentality is counter-productive to your progress. Focus your energy on the following and you'll be much better off.
  1. Hard work in the gym
  2. Excellent quality nutrition (a paleolithic hunter-gatherer modeled diet is a great start)
  3. Quality rest, deep sleep

  15. It is obscure how the profound and recuperating properties and estimations of jewels appeared, yet most have been around for a great many years. Stones and gems each vibrate to various energies and maybe it was years of perception that prompted the implications. Supplement, with “to”
