In my morning smoothie I take protein powder, a multi-greens powder and another powder that contains turmeric, msm, ginger and magnesium. I also take Fish Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, a multi mineral tablet, Vitamins B, C, D and E, and CoQ10. In the evenings I take a Joint Care tablet that contains Glucosamine and Chondroitin. If I am doing a high impact or strenuous workout I will often take a pre-workout drink and sometimes use a post workout branched chain amino acids drink. I sometimes take L-Carnitine too. I don't use creatine.
I don't recommend taking creatine. My husband was the picture of health in his mid-thirties, working out (on SWAT, did SWAT Olympics) and was a faithful user of creatine. Then he started having all sorts of health problems.
Please don't use it. Things might not happen right away, but some time the road...
I used creatine and BCAAs briefly in the past but didn't like how I felt using them (digestion issues). More recently I got into using collagen (high quality grass fed) but based on a podcast I listened to, I am going to give Essential Aminos a try. (The podcast was Ben Greenfield's interview with Dr. Minkoff https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/podcast/supplements-podcasts/essential-amino-acid-benefits/) Sounds like they are even better than collagen. Anyone else have any experience with essential aminos? (I went with the Kion brand tablets since they put a great deal of work into the particular levels of each amino in their formula.) I sound like an ad, but I'm not! Curious if anyone else has an opinion on EAs... Thanks!
