Okay, it will be more than 10, but the title got you to look  Grin

Let's keep this thread clean ~ no BS products.

Here's a start ~ with basic /general dosages
I don't consider a Multi part of the top 10 since it basically goes without saying...

Creatine and Ephedra fall into what I would call a "conditional use" category
Glutamine 15g/day when cutting.  

Multi
Bs
C              500mg/3x day or more
Calcium   Women    1000-1500 split doses
Chromium       200mcg
D                 1000iu
E              ~400~800IU mixed tocopherols
Fish Oil          3-6 grams   
Glucosamine      1500mg
Potassium        99mcg   
Zinc            30mg





What the heck happened to the formatting  ^  Huh

True story:  I have a friend who bought Ginko to help with her memory . . . and kept forgetting to take it.   Smiley

My list:

- protein - 50g (25 a.m., 25 p.m.)

- creatine - 10g (5 a.m, 5 p.m.)

- glutamine - (same)

- multi - a.m./p.m.

- C - 1000mg a.m./p.m. 

- E - 400IU p.m.

- Glucosamine/Chondroitin - p.m.

- ZMA (GNC brand) - p.m.  Just started again after not using for several years.  Love this product.

My dad took that stuff for several months with no noticeable effects according to him, but I don't think he was taking it religiously. I heard too that it takes quite some time to kick in. I did take it religiously and after exactly one month, I noticed my mind was sharp as a razor. I was quick as hell. Then, a couple days later my anxiety level shot up. So, I stopped taking it. But it does work, just not on everyone.

it's a geneic disease. The disorder affects the way the body metabolizes certain components of protein. These components are the three branch-chain amino-acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine. These amino acids accumulate in the blood causing a toxic effect that interferes with brain function.

I don't understand why, I prefer to take a mulit with some c and e but everytime I start taking them, about two weeks in, I start getting cold sores. It happened a couple months back. I tried sticking through it and continued taking the pills. Everytime one cold sore went away a day or two later another would pop up. On my lips mostly, but on my nose and cheek too. Sure enough, I stopped taking the pills and I haven't had a cold sore since..................s trange huh?

Supplements that help to build muscle?   LOL!  There aren't any (that can be legally purchased, anyway)!


Okay, protein powder is a good thing if you're not getting enough protein from food, or simply aren't hungry for solid food that many times per day.

Creatine does give you a little extra energy in the gym, allowing an extra rep or two. Does this translate into more muscle? That's debatable.

Ephedrine w caffeine is an effective fat burner/ diet aid.

Other that that, forget it..... scam city!


Some of the items mentioned above by others are great supplements for general health (fish oil, vitamins, minerals, and many others, many of which I take myself for health reasons), but do not have any specific value for bodybuilding.

I have always stuck to a select few:


1 - Protein Powder
2 - Multis
3 - Creatine (cant take it anymore due to extreme headaches and dizziness)
4 - Ephedra


Thats about it, and the last one is only for energy. I used to love creatine, but it kicks my ass now!

Just curious about the reason you say you can't take Creatine anymore? Did you experience other health issues that maybe linked to the symptoms you say came from taking Creatine? I know everyone responds differently but I have used the stuff for almost 10 years off and on and never had anything more than an upset stomach when I first start taking it. After about a week my body gets used to it and then the gains begin to show.

Nah, I get headaches and dizziness from it. No matter how much. I have tried many different versions to see if they work but they all make me sick. Any suggestions are welcome!

What about digestive/protein absorption related supplements?  In this regard, I'm currently taking acidophilus and papaya/bromelain.  Maybe not top ten material, but worthy of consideration.

One of the main things about steroids is increased protein absorbtion. Maybe there's a legal product that can match or come close to steroids in that sense. Would seem pretty worthwhile if there was.
