Default Wasting Money On These Supplements?

Got this in the e-mail today and wanted to share. (I edited out a couple things but, this basically the whole e-mail.)

Quote:
We strength athletes tend to use A LOT of supplements...
Multiple types of Protein, Creatine, Glutamine and more.
But the question is:
Which ones really work?
Which ones really help to make us healthier, STRONGER
and genuinely improve performance?
And which ones are marketing hyperbole and a total
waste of money?
Well, until now - I didn't have the answers.
But recently I've been making friends with a guy called Sol
and his team from Canada.
And they've spent the past few years doing scientific research
to figure out EXACTLY which supplements are GREAT and
which totally SUCK.
You might be surprised by some of their findings...
-------------------------------------------------------------
Here's a short article they wrote especially for you (my loyal
reader):
-------------------------------------------------------------
There’s an amino acid that is sold as critical for muscle building …
but if you get enough protein, it NEVER even gets to the muscles.
Glutamine, the most popular “muscle building
amino acid” sold on the market.
There is tons of evidence that shows glutamine is completely useless
in building muscle, unless you happen to be a trauma patient lying
in a hospital bed. If you are eating enough protein (and you should be!),
you are fine.
Then we have T-boosters.
Here’s the truth - while higher testosterone means higher libido, higher
libido does not mean higher testosterone.
A lot of these T-Boosters do nothing more than increase your libido!
Easiest example is tribulus terrestris, by far the most popular T-booster
there is. It’s healthy, it’s an aphrodisiac, but it literally does zero for
your testosterone.
The last one may be a surprise - BCAAs and EAAs.
Unless you are fasting and take them before a workout, there is literally
no reason to specifically take them. When you get enough protein in
a day, you get more than enough of the BCAAs and EAAs.
Don’t waste your money on supplements that don’t work
***
Sol and his team have done their research and they know their stuff!'
No 'bro-science' here.
This is legit....

Talk soon,

Andy Bolton

For over 20 years I thought they all were a waste. Then I tried a few things for myself. Certainly nutritional supplements are not meant to create superhumans, or rapid gains, but that doesn't mean they are without value.

I've tried numerous supplements which have provided some benefits. Taurine minimizes my lower back pumps. Bullet Proof has an impact on how deep I sleep most of the time. Purus Labs Muscle Marinade pre-workout gives me strong focus for 4+ hours every time I take it.

I smell something cooking. I am waiting for "Sol" to reveal his line of super supplements, better than everything else. If I am wrong, drinks are on the house.

Silk amino acids are worthless don't buy them.

Creatine monohydrate is the only creatine worth buying. Any other form or derivative is not as effective and is marketing hype.

BCAA are only useful if training fasted or during periods of 4-6 hours without a meal.

This is legit.
And they've actually turned their research into a book called
Supplement Goals Reference Guide
In it - you'll learn EXACTLY which supplements to take to suit
your goals and which are a total waste of money.
And until Friday this week, you can get the book at a discounted
price, because you're my reader
Click here to learn more

Talk soon,
Andy Bolton
P.S. This book is a 'must read' if you're a serious strength athlete,
who wants to maximize your performance by taking the best
supplements and avoid wasting money on stuff that doesn't work
and could be detrimental to your health.
And when you grab it before Friday at midnight, you'll get it at
a special low price.

The biggest and best supplement that works for me is Arkworlds Ark 1, Ark 2, and Ark 3. They control inflammation wonderfully. Best money I have ever spent -period.

As far as I know, Glutamine helps in the digestion process, which could obviously be beneficial to lifting in an indirect way.

BCAA's - Xtend works for me as I always train fasted.

Another great supp, especially for those over 30, is powdered Collagen -type 1,2, and 3. It does a great job in repairing connective tissue.

I'm with Steve on the Muscle Marinade - best pre-wo that literally does marinade my muscles with power. Love it!
