    Yes, YOU ARE RIGHT. I take fish oil, Vit D3, Red Rice Yeast, Alpha Lipoic Acid, L Arginine, Niacin, and CO-Q10, all to control LDL cholesterol, limit inflammation and atherosclerosis. And my quarterly blood tests indicate that it is working.

    1. Creatine has been proven to increase lean muscle mass, maximal strength, power, and muscular endurance.
    2. Creatine may also help keep you hydrated in extreme outdoor conditions
    3. Emerging research suggests creatine may provide cognitive and overall brain health benefits.

    The first 2 are great, the 3rd one is definitely a no-no.

    For those that don't know what MSM is, it is known by several other names including DMSO2. (dimethyl sulfone) It is marketed as a dietary supplement and sometimes used as a cutting agent for methamphetamines. And it is found distinctively in human melanoma cells. (skin cancer) MRI studies have shown that MSM is absorbed into the blood and crosses the blood/brain barrier. There is no peer reviewed data on the effects of its long term use in humans.

    Whey protein drinks during and after training, caffeine pre-training, carb replacement drinks during training (e.g. Gatorade), and creatine.

    But remember, supplements don't do jack shit unless your training and nutrition are already solid.

    Your diet will set you free.

    I hate exercise, I love training.

    methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) Is a type of sulphur which has been used for years in the health industry to help treat inflammation in the body. Is not it?

    What is a plausible mechanism that would explain how Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) lowers skin oil production?
