    Creatine, Vitamin Bs, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Vitamin K. Protein and a decent preworkout.

    If you want to just narrow it down, I'd say creatine and protein. Vitamins can be had from food sources.

    Bcaa's- Ibcaa's from Primordial Performance ( instantized bcaa powder )

    General health supps
    Omega oils- fish, krill, flax, etc...

    Absolutely. Too many people waste their money on supplements when most of them just need to focus on their diet. Instead of using all their money on supplements, people should go to Jewel and spend that money on steak, chicken, and tuna.

    My list of essentials that don't get the limelight they deserve.

    NAC, VitC, VitD, Magnesium

    Multi and Fish Oil are a given as well.
    -I know your words, just not together.

    Forget the glutamine - studies are conflicted as to whether it is effective or not, and IMO, unless you're a completely sedentary individual, it is useless (I did my meta-analysis on this for my degree).

    As far as supplements, IMO the Basic Staples are:
    * Creatine
    * Multivitamin/antioxidant
    * Good Fats
    * Protein
    * BCAAs

    Just a note that depending on your body mass, you might be able to get all your
    good fats, protein, and BCAAs requirements from your diet.

    As far as recommendations re the staples, based on personal experience:

    Creatine
    * Neovar Recomped
    * Cre-02
    * Kre-Alkalyn
    * CreaPure

    Multivitamin/antioxidant
    * Activite Sport
    * Orange Triad
    * Adam
    * Organic VitaBerry

    Good Fats
    * Hempseed Oil
    * Flaxseed Oil
    * Fish Oil
    * Natural Nut Butters

    Protein (without having to import it into the US)
    * MuscleGel Shots
    * Maximum Absorbed Protein
    * MyoFusion
    * Combat Powder

    BCAAs
    * BC+EAA
    * IBCAA
    * Purple Wraath
    * Xtend

    Ive seen ALA mentioned a few times here. Good stuff. For a good antioxidant supp, Vitaberry is one of my favs.

    ALA helps re nutrient repartitioning. VitaBerry is the best antioxidant product out there, IMO
