Ok, I have to admit that was a bit of a trick question to catch your attention.  The truth of the matter is if you want to get into the best shape of your life everyone should take some form of supplementation.  You have to keep in mind that when people say “supplement” they are basically referring to anything outside of normal food.  That multi-vitamin that you take is considered a supplement.

Even though I am in favor of supplementation, I do NOT think there is anything such thing as a magic pill.  The supplement industry has to keep coming up with NEW stuff so they can sell products.  They have not been able to sell people hard work.  So they have to create new and exciting supplements with outrageous claims.

My supplement recommendation is much more basic.  All you really need is a good vitamin & mineral supplement, a quality fish oil supplement, and if you goal is muscle gain a quality protein supplement.  That is it really.  You do not need to dedicate an entire kitchen cabinet to your supplements.  Just buy quality to ensure you get the benefits.

This is why Shakeology was such a great find for me.  It knocked out almost half of my major supplement requirements.  It delivers all the vitamin and minerals I need, and some I didn’t even know I needed.  It also is a quality protein source.  Having said that, again if your goal is muscle building you will need to supplement with a little extra protein.  However, in general vitamins & minerals, protein and fish oil should be enough nutritional support to help you reach your goals quickly and safely.  Try Shakeology Today.
