5 Reasons to Take Supplements (AND WHEN YOU NEVER SHOULD!)

Highest quality supplements. Used by today’s top professional athletes.

One of the most common questions asked is whether someone needs to take supplements in order to build muscle and see results. It is a good question and one that has two completely different answers depending on the person asking it. In this video, I explain to you 5 reasons you need to take supplements and when you never should take them. If you can’t deal with brutal honesty however, I would advise you not to watch, as some feelings may be hurt.

To determine whether or not you are a candidate for supplementation you have to start with your experience level and current condition. If you are just starting out and are relegated to lifting 5 pound dumbbells for most of your exercises, you are likely not ready for supplements. You can gain far more benefits focusing on building up your strength and foundation while learning proper form and the best way to train than with stuffing your face with supplements.

The same can be said if you have allowed your diet and nutrition to put you grossly overweight. Supplements are not your savior. You first must figure out how to rededicate yourself to your nutrition so that you can lose enough weight to make supplements a viable part of the discussion once again to take you and your results to the next level.

Next you have to ask yourself if you are motivated enough to take supplements. Some people view supplementation as a way to be lax with the rest of their fitness and nutrition plan. They figure that as long as they are taking the supplements that they don’t have to worry much about everything else. Couldn’t be further from the truth. On the other hand, sometimes the act of supplementing makes you much more accountable for the rest of your actions. In this case, it can be a great advantage to helping you stay on track.

If stress is a big part of your life, be it from your work or family, supplements can become even more necessary to help keep you on track and combat that. We all know that proper nutrition and fueling can go a long way towards helping your body fight fatigue and breakdown. If stress is heavy in your life then you would particularly want to look into supplements to help keep you healthy and consistent with your nutrition in the face of schedule disruption.

Finally, ask yourself if you think that you can get all the benefits of supplements from food alone. If you think so, I can tell you in most cases you are wrong. For instance, there is simply no practical way to get as much creatine as you would need to experience its benefits from food alone. I said practical. Sure, you may be able to do it in theory, but when you consider the roadblocks that I present to you in the video you quickly realize this won’t work.

For a complete supplement and nutrition line that is tested and trusted by today’s top professional athletes, be sure to head to and get your Rx Supplement bundle. Feel what a difference supplementation can make and see first hand how it can take your results to the next level.

  1. Does a regular use of Creatine create health problems? I have a friend (who is a bodybuilder) that had major health problems from taking creatine for extended periods of time… ???

  2. Lol this is awesome. When I first started to train I would take supplements get a great pump and was like ya man ya. Then I realized I was pissing away money. So I dropped the supplements , kept the protein and trained like a beast. That's when I saw the difference. Great video.

  3. I have two questions; how do see a catalog and/or purchase? Also, you mention glucosamine. I have shoulder issues but have read that glucosamine is basically snake oil. Can you point me in the direction of valid scientific evidence for glucosamine? If it’s really a help, I need it.
    Lastly, thanks for your videos. They are very helpful to me.

  4. i eat 500grams meat a day so i get 39grams protein and 2g kreatin and the body itself synthesize an additional 1g so i get the 3grams i need for my training and it kost me 10$ a day and its good and nice to eat 😉

  5. I find exersize and muscle building a huge stress reliever. I have a smoothie every post workout. Basically 4 times a week.
    I don't take creatine but eat allot of protein for muscle growth.

  6. Damn, whats with all the thumbs down? Oh, i think i know, Sal Destefano and mindpump. Haaaaaaa! (Kidding of course) but it sure wouldnt surprise me, after years of comparing the 2. Athlean X, Hands down man.

  7. my point: vitamins, vegan protein, joint protector (arthroguard Glukozamin), mixed amino – no creatine, i'm
    affraid of that…

  8. The taste is unbearable, with too much sugar in it. 6 grams sugar in 19 grams ( a scoop) of powder! Read the list of ingredients before you buy. All three jars contain sucralose or Splenda, the artificial sweetener that causes gut upset.
    I am afraid to destroy a microbiome taking so much Splenda every day. Animal studies link sucralose to negative effects on the bacterial environment in the gut. I would love to buy the RX supplements from you as soon as you release an unflavored version without any artificial sweeteners and organic. The product is overpriced and has no refund.

  9. I don't take supplements and I have gains, I have a shake after my daily workout, with peanut butter, pea protein , banana , chia seeds, cacao raw, almonds, Brazil nuts and either milk or coconut milk. Creatine sounds good though I may start taking that.

  10. I have an important question, but first I would like to mention is that I just read online that if a creatine that does NOT have a CREAPURE label on it, then it is low quality coming from china. That being said, there are Top brand companies that have creatine that are NOT made from creapure, so it is made in China with possible toxicities in it. What is you opinion on this? Thank you

  11. I just started taking weight gainer I was in a semi truck accident and lost all of my weight I also lost my ability to eat a lot o the foods that I used to so I think the weight gainer will helpWith my exercises included

  12. I take a small amount of pre-workout more so for the placebo effect before heading to the gym. It gets me into the mindset thinking, “ no turning back now, get your ass off to the gym”. It def works for me. Other than that, just a good diet really.

  13. I've tried taking creatine monohydrate powder but it really messed my sleep up. I was a wreck after a few weeks and had to stop. Is there another way I can try to get its benefits? Is there any benefit in taking a VERY small dose each day?

  14. Hello there, I want to know if Zonopelarge Secrets, will work for me? I see a lot of people keep on talking about this popular premature ejaculation natural treatment.
