None. no vitamins, no supplements, no pills, no potions, no powders...

I do eat a lot of meat and like a pint of guinness every now and again... does that count?

Other than prescription drugs...


  • Calcium because my parathyroids were destroyed by a cancerous thyroid gland.
  • Couch grass or Goldenrod
  • Ashwaganda
  • Amalaki
  • Low-dose aspirin
  • Creatine when I'm doing strength training

Heck, I don't even know what half this stuff is for. Regarding the creatine-- I heard a lot of positive stuff about it some years back, but more and more it seems to be getting a bad rap. You know, uncertain long term side effects, and the criticism that it just bloats your muscles with water without really helping to build muscle fibers... One guy I know has a really broad face, so much so that people call him "Pumpkin Head" (behind his back) and attribute his condition to heavy doses of creatine. But the truth is, I've never used it and don't really know anything about it. Tellner, you usually have the inside scoop on things. What's your take on it?

Does anyone know why they're taking the supplements? I'm not sure I know anymore!
I take them for muscle building, while proper dieting and workout alone will do the same this speeds it up. also many of the supplements i take are for preventive actions and maintaining a health body overall.

If you dont know what you are putting into your body does than stop and ask someone

I have used Hydroxycut to loose weight but thats the only supplement that I have taken in a long time. Long, long time ago I used trim spa to loose weight & creatine when I lifted weights to gain muscle.
