Hey there crew!

I'm training hard 6 days a week and I feel that supplements are a big help but I want to make sure I'm taking what I need (I'm still new to all of this and still learning) So far in the morning I make sure to consume

-Spirulina Tablets
-Chlorella Tablets
-a Wholefood vitamin
-vegan glucosamine



and then I use all (Sport) VEGA products. Before my workouts I use the Pre-workout energizer with a scoop of vegan creatine and during my workouts the Acai Berry electrolyte. After my workout I'll take the Vega Recovery and a scoop of creatine and when I get home the (Vega) vanilla protein powder (25g a scoop) with soy milk (11g of protein a cup)

Any pro out here recommend anything else?


Appreciate the advice

-Cris xoxo

It sounds like you've got the basic ebb and flow of supplementation down. However, I would add an EFA supplement if you're not regularly eating plenty of seeds and nuts. Also, I would try to avoid taking tablets as much as possible, because 1) they are more expensive than powders, 2) they are harder to digest, 3) they usually contain more chemicals (i.e. binders like stearic acid or magnesium stearate... which may not be plant-sourced). An EXCELLENT product I recommend highly is MycoGreen powder, which is loaded with glyconutrients, EFAs, antioxidants, digestive enzymes, etc., and contains chlorella and spirulina too. Lastly, as I'm sure you already know, remember to hydrate especially plentifully when taking creatine.
