    Just take Vitamin tablets, C, B etc, take them everyday, just eat right and that'll do something, even Caffeine tablets i think it ups your performance by 7%, it's still legal.

    Creatine is a compound utilized by athletes to enhance performance. It's abundant in muscles and the brain. Basically, our liver combines three amino acids (Arginine, Glycine and Methionine) to form creatine.


    Centrum, it's a multivitamin supplement. It's not bad, but there are a lot of better ones for athletes. These will not improve your performance though.

    I'd suggest :

    - Carbs (Complex, slow-burning carbs consumed 1-2 hours before training [ex : oats, brown rice, pasta, sweet potatoes, lentils, etc.])
    - Caffeine (When you exercise your body burns both stored fat and glycogen or sugar. However, as soon as the glycogen in the muscles that you are using is burnt up, your performance is greatly reduced. By taking caffeine your body will actually increase the amount of free fatty acids in your blood. By doing this you will create a " glycogen " sparing effect. Simply put your body uses more fat as fuel and your sugar store depletion rate decreases, which in turn delays fatigue and allows you to train longer and harder.)
    - Herbs (Ginseng, Guarana)

    Pretty good, but expensive. There are equally good multis much cheaper.


    Creatine is procuded naturally in our organism (as stated above) and is also found in red meat. So, it's not an hormone. Therefore it does not have the side effects associated with any prohormone or illegal steroid. It's absolutly safe.

    I'd suggest you to start with the 3 suggestions above, though. Keep creatine until you're more experienced with supplements. Oh, and don't forget your proteins!

    basics
    1, protein powders
    2, creatine(these days creatine CEE is popular)
    3, glutamine
    these are the most popular that people use these days. If you have just started to workout i wouldnt reccomend any kind of supplementation.

    There's nothing better than natural diet but Problem is the time, the one who doesn't have enough time that he can eat 4-6 meals daily and can prepare juices and other things between those meals. If he/she takes supp. and gets all energy from that. I think its a good replacement.
    what do u think?

    Simply to supplement your diet with more proteins, since it's almost impossible, on a high protein diet, to get your ratio from solid foods. Plus, it's especially important post-workout as it's digested in 15-25 minutes, compared to any other protein sources that takes around 2 hours to hit your bloodstream.

    However, although football players need a bit more proteins than "normal" people, they don't need to supplement with proteins. It's more for resistance training athletes.

    Glutamine is a great anti-catabolic amino acid, which has many utilities such as faster msucle recovery (for soreness), is also not really needed by endurance training athletes.
