sports supplements

I am currious for those of you who put in many miles on bike and or run and workout four five or six days per week if you use any type of sports supplements? For either performance enhancement or faster recovery.
I glanced at this months issue of TRIATHLETE magazine and saw ads for Myoplex Deluxe, Accelerade and Endurox R4, Damage Control Master Formula, BioBuilde, First Endurance, I heared from a fellow rider that a multi vitamin with extra magnesium and calcium tablets are good enough...I realize that evreyone is different with diferent goals and different levels of exertion and competion.
Myself I am passionate about running and cycling. I have been since 1999. I am not super competitive but generaly finish in the top 25% tile in the races I enter (any where from a 5K, to duathlolon, to eight marathons I ran and four to seven century rides during summer months) I will turn 38 years old at the end of this mionth and am noticing I am more tired at night than before? Any feed back or advice or personal encounters with any of the hundreds of sports nutrion/supplements on the market will be great.

I have always felt that improvement in any discipline is not just the training but proper use of supplements for recovery..

I use accelerade during rides.. Powerbar recovery immediately after riding, I sweat a lot and it has a goof amount of sodium which helps recovery.. If it was a hard session I would also include Complex Amino Acids + L-Glutamine for recovery.

I also take a good multivatimin everyday..
