First things first, let’s get one thing clear.
Supplements are there to supplement an already good diet (and training, and rest – sleep, and lifestyle in general). Hence the term “supplements.”
Supplements aren’t going to magically fix a situation lacking good habits and discipline.
But what about when you already have a good diet?
Should you still take supplements?
For most people, in general, yes.
The quality of nutrition, due to the quality of the soil, isn’t as abundant as it used to be.
Effectively this means that broccolis now don’t have quite the same nutrients as they were decades ago.
Also, there are some other essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that most people are low on.
Vitamin B or D, for example – if you’re not getting enough sun.
Magnesium – which we can get from good – is a major mineral that helps our mitochondrial health, muscle recovery, and menstrual cycle.
Fish oils is another that most people are low on.
Creatine, which we get from animal sources, is also a fantastic supplement for vegans or vegetarians since they don’t get enough animal proteins.
But even for meat-eaters, we still need some creatine supplements. When we cook our food, it takes away all of the creatine.
And for most of us, in general, we should supplement creatine because there are more other benefits than performance and recovery. It also improves cognition AND sleep.
But again, all these things are to be a complement to an ALREADY well-balanced diet – that is high in fruits and veggies.
