    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I take Optimum Whey, Creatine (I change my what brand of creatine I take), Multi B Complex, Vitamin C, Activite Multivitamin & Mineral (best multivitamin on market IMO), Three Oil Omega 3--6-9 pill form (Flaxseed, Olive, and Fish) by Nature Made (nothing expensive or crazy)

    I have a question.... what do you guys think is the best creatine supplment out there? Response would be appreciated.

    Seriously though, what's the point where all these supplements are starting to be necessary? Right now I have time for 1-2 BJJ sessions a week. Alongside I'm trying to build up my core a bit and am doing various core excercises pretty much every day. I'd think I have nothing to gain from eating supplements as long as I eat generally healthy food.
    Your pretty much right and ur doing smart thing in building up your coreslowly. But after intense workouts and sessions, your body needs sustenance.

    If you're young and you're not overloading your body, there's probably no reason to take most of the sport-oriented supplements. I'm in my late 30s and work out six days a week, so I need all the help I can get. :smile:

    ^^^Early 40's, but this.

    So with that in mind. I originally was using betagen because of the HMB, which is otherwise expensive and annoying to get, but if I just get rid of that then it's pretty easy to get creatine and glutamine pretty cheap and mix my own powder, so the question is, what mail orderable brand would folks reccomend?

    ^^^ yep... one year short of 40. When I hit 31, it was like a train went over me. Before that, I could do retarded **** with little sleep, no supplements, not even a multivitamin and not feel much of a thing.

    Now, I need things just to be able to get a solid sleep (ZMA, Tactical Nutrition, tribulus.) When test levels go down (and which do go down), that's when supplements become vital for anyone wanting to engage in a minimum of physical activity.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    I love tribulus. It makes you feel like a sexual tyrannosaurus.

    So macho, and brand reccomendations? Just looking for who is trustworthy to buy creatine and glutamine from at a good price.

    Get your creatine monohydrate in big tubs at Wal-Mart. No word of a joke.
