I would like to be taking prohormones now, but I can't find anything now that they're illegal.

Omega oils (flaxseed) for mood, magnesium for sleep and stress, artichoke extract for digestive tract, saw palemeto to hopefully stave off prostrate probelems, Take Q10 when I remember to buy it to counteract traffic pollution.
Is that it?

No - Vallerian for sleep probs, which dog me.

I eat well, mostly organic, so hopefully, it's all just top up. But I like to make sure.

Oh yeah, and "Sports Legs" which does seem to delay or eliminate lactic acid build up in my legs. I can really tell a difference when I don't take my suppliments....

check out carbolin 19 from biotest. I have been most pleased with the results. I've gained a few pounds of mass while still in a hypocaloric state, so it seems to have about the same effect as my last PH cycle.

Though I've still got some of the good stuff around if you want it

While I consider good food the #1 thing you should focus on, I use Fish oil and protein powder if I need to up my protein intake. I also take a multi vitamin. In my youth, I tried lots of stuff and found most a waste of money.

Multi, calcium (oseto in the fam & cyclist ain't known for their strong bones!) Osteo BIo flex (knee issues) and vitamin C. Riding... Hammer's Perpetuam and Ecaps.

Choc isn't a supplement...it's a staple like air water shelter etc.
