I have used supplements since I was 16 years old. I’ve experimented with most things on the market. Sometimes with success, often with disappointment. I once deploy proven & cost effective supplements with my clients. There are thousands of supplements on the market & if one you know of is missing from my list it is not because I have overlooked it merely that it is either not proven or not cost effective (relative to the benefit you will derive from using it).
My Go To Supplements
- Citrulline Malate
- Fish Oil
- Vitamins C & D
Types of Supplements
- Amino acid (AA), Carbohydrate, Dietary Fiber or Prebiotic, Enzymes, Fat or Fatty Acid, Food or Food Products, Hormones, Minerals, Phytochemical, Probiotic, Spice or herbs, Vitamins & Whole Grains.
- Alanine – Alanine is an amino acid that is used to make proteins. It is used to break down tryptophan and vitamin B-6. It is a source of energy for muscles and the central nervous system. It strengthens the immune system and helps the body use sugars.
- Alpha-GPC – Alpha-GPC is used for Alzheimer disease, stroke, dementia caused by reduced blood flow to the brain (vascular dementia), memory and thinking skills, and other conditions.
- Alpha-Lipoic Acid – Alpha-lipoic acid has strong antioxidant properties, which may reduce inflammation and skin aging, promote healthy nerve function, lower heart disease risk factors, and slow the progression of memory loss disorders.
- Aniracetam – Aniracetam primarily acts as both a stimulant and a mental enhancer. It’s said to help make you more awake and alert. This is similar to caffeine. It may also help improve your memory and concentration. Aniracetam boosts brain cell signaling by increasing the effectiveness of glutamate which helps focus and concentration. Aniracetam helps release 200 – 300% more acetylcholine in your brain which helps with focus, clarity of thought, memory and recall. And it seems to affect dopamine and serotonin receptors in your brain as well.

- Black Pepper
- Branched-chain amino acid (BCAA)

- D-Aspartic Acid – D-aspartic acid is currently recommended as a viable product to significantly raise testosterone, however research in humans only supports this recommendation in untrained men with below average testosterone levels.
- D-Ribose – Ribose is used to improve athletic performance and the ability to exercise by boosting muscle energy.
- D-Serine – D-serine is an amino acid found in the brain that activates a type of neurotransmitter receptor called NMDA receptors. NMDA receptors are involved in the formation of new synapses, which are important for learning and memory.
