As you may notice, our preference is for supplements from Jim Stoppani. The reason for this is simple - NO ONE (or, at least no major/well known brand) makes higher quality, more effective supplements than Dr. Jim Stoppani. The best part is, we don't even have to explain why, as the Dr. has made videos explaining this himself, and just like everything else on this site, we stand behind the products we recommend 100%.
Also, we have them in order of importance, meaning if you are wondering which supplements you should buy first/which to make a priority - just buy them in the order we have them listed (ergo - before you worry about buying a post-workout supplement you should already have/be taking a protein and pre-workout supplement).
Keep In mind that supplementation is only effective/useful if you are already managing your diet. You cannot fill large gaps of nutrient intake through supplements, they are designed to help you get from the 85-90% range to 100-110%+ of your intake needs; meaning your pre/post workout and protein supplements aren't going to help you much if you ate McDonalds for breakfast and lunch.
The same goes for exercise. Taking a weight loss or muscle-gaining supplement will only be effective if you have adopted the subsequent lifestyle. Taking the supplements themselves will NOT bring you results in and of themselves. At best, they may offer some small, initial results that will offer no real improvement to your overall health and will disappear quickly after you stop taking them.
The following supplements are goal specific, meaning if you have a specific goal of dropping weight, or building mass, you may want to utilize some of these supplements to help. However, if you are not trying to make serious progress in a specific area, these supplements are probably not necessary/useful.
This is for those trying to maximize mass gain or to supplement for activities with higher caloric requirements.
