What are some supplements that actually do anything /fit/?

>Other than roids
>>
>>35662755
The only four that I know of that actually do anything are:

Creatine monohydrate
Beta alanine
Acetyl-l-tyrosine
Caffeine

All the rest are generally shit.
>>
Ones that I know of:
>Protein Powder
>Creatine
>Beta Alanine
>Caffeine
>>
>>35662773
>Acetyl-l-tyrosine
I'm extremely cautious about taking anything that impacts the brains ability to produce any chemicals, what are the long term studies on something like this?
>>
L-Arginine.

Helps with bloodflow, and gives you dat diamond dick.
>>
>>35662784
You'd have to take stupidly large doses of it for a long time before it'd give you any serious problems. It's a non-essential amino acid. The acetylized version of it is more bio-available so you take less of it, but you can also take free-form L-Tyrosine. I've taken it daily for a year and have no problems from it I can report. YMMV, do you own research of course.

>>35662791
One word of caution about L-Arginine supplementation: If you have ANY form of herpes (mouth sores, genital warts, shingles, etc) avoid taking this as a supplement UNLESS you also take an equal or greater amount of L-Lysine with it, otherwise you will have an OUTBREAK that will make you want to kill yourself.
>>
>>35662775
>>35662773
>>Beta Alanine

what does this do?
>>
>>35662900
Carnosine precursor.
>>
>>35662919
...which is?
>>
DNP
>>
>>35662921
http://www.wellnessresources.com/health/articles/carnosine_amazing_benefits_for_athletes_heart_brain_eyes_and_diabetes/
>>
>>35662937
Just don't end up killing yourself lol.

Might add ephedrine in list of useful supps but it's not legal everywhere.
>>
>>35662937
>Taking a highly toxic industrial pesticide because you can't stop eating burgers and twinkies
>>
>>35662773
Am I supposed to take Beta alanine and Carnosine supps separately or will just the former suffice?
>>
zinc
fish oil
caffeine
creatine
>>
1,3 dimethylamylamine
>>
>>35662816
can you have that shit but never have had an outbreak?

worst I've had was a coldsore that lasted a day

>I want a diamond dick
>>
>>35663220
Does any PW use that still? I still got 2 tubs of original jack3d
>>
>>35663232
jack'd up
mesomorph
old jack

and a bunch of others, nothing beats original jack3d tho
>>
>>35662755
Piracetam
Biacopa
Ginggo bioblba
Vitamin D
Fash Oil
>>
>>35662755
Zinc

Vastly improved my skin. The rings under my eyes are less visible now.
>>
What about that penibut (sp?) stuff? Im sceptical on from what ive heard about it
>>
>>35663572

why would you be skeptical if you've actually read about it? phenibut is a legit drug that does exactly what any other gaba-b agonist does, and includes the same life threatening withdrawals if you are dumb enough to take it every day
>>
>>35662900
makes you a beta
>>
>>35663527
how much did you take

ive got a multivit with 10g
>>
>>35663572
Not useful for lifting, or really anything other than relaxing.

It's an okay anti-anxiety. For the most part, I'd stay away.
>>
>>35663604
30mg a day. I got the capsules from sportnahrung.de but I think my protein sells some too.
>>
>>35663638
ah german bro!

shouldnt you like take 30mg with some copper? for better absorption?
heard too much zinc can make your toe nails yellowish
>>
Vitamin D
Vitamin C
Vitamin E
L-Arganine
Acytil-L-Carnatine
Yohabine
Horny Goat Weed
Lecithin
Vitamin B Complex
Fish Oil
Zinc
And a multivitamin to top it off.
>>
>>35663646
enjoy your liver poisoning
>>
>>35663646
>Horny Goat Weed
kek, but please elaborate. Never heard of it.
>>
just got synephrine, is it a meme or does it do something good?
>>
Caffeine
Vitamin D, C
Fish Oil
Whey
Creatine
Yohimbine hcl (though this mite b a meme, haven't tested in higher doses)

I also take resveratrol, which is a red wine extract that is supposed to be good for the heart. Also, in some studies it has acted as an aromatase inhibitor, stopping testosterone from converting to estrogen. Probably a placebo desu, but I make enough money that I can afford a $20 bottle every few months.
>>
is it true that if you take creatine for a long ish amount of time, the body stops producing it?
>>
>>35663713
thats why you take a month break
>>
>>35663723
your shitting me right? the month break and loading phase are memes
>>
>>35663713
I've read a lot on creatine and I've never heard of this before. Link to your source please.
>>
>>35663731
thats why i dont take a month break :-)
>>
>>35663643
No fucking idea uezs. Didn't notice any yellowish toe or fingernails.
If I notice anything I'd probably only take one every two days. Or split them in half for example.
>>
>>35663754
>verdammter ösi
alright then
>>
>>35663766
>ösi
Wat
>>
>>35663687
For me it works. I take 40mg 3 times a day. It suppresses hunger quite well, I take it with some green tea extract.
Id use ephedrine but its illegal here in Finland.
>>
>>35662945
>found in meat
vegans btfo?
>>
>>35662755
>Protein powder
I mean, c'mon. Protein powder is just basic gym-rat affair.

>Fish oil
I don't know what it does, but everyone keeps saying it's not a meme, so I'm going to believe them and say it's not a meme.

>Creatine
Safe, effective, and easy to buy. Helps you bust out a few more reps, and it makes you look a bit bigger. If you take it or not, that's up to you.

>Caffeine
Pre-workout is literally memes as fuck. Just drink some coffee or something.

>NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal-Anti-Inflammatory-Drugs)
Ibuprofen is top notch for killing DOMs. Really useful if you fucked your shit up and you've got work tomorrow or something. Plus, it doesn't screw around with your protein synthesization like acetaminophen or codeine would. Also, codeine is for degenerate druggies.
>>
>>35663646
>Yohabine
>Horny Goat Weed
>Vitamin B pills
>Multivitamins
>Literally "MEMES: The post"
>>
>>35663873
Always. No gains and brain damage :)
>>
>>35663802
>What is border' trade'
Ask a Russian, Estonian or Polack in Finland, or go to said countries to buy yourself.
>>
>>35664084
Why bother? Synephrine does the same for me and is cheap as fuck.
>>
>not taking vitamin D
It's like you don't even want gains
>>
>>35664197
This. 4000 IU a day, anything less is pleb tier.

>b-but I drink milk
Shit source for D, needs to be supplemented.
