    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?

    Tried Piracetam https://nootropicboost.com for a specific nootropic effect, did seem beneficial to some extent.
    Tried other's that gave a nootropic effect indirectly, DAA ? although some will say this is could be an excitotoxin.

    Knowing How To Read Your Blood Profile

    Looking at ONLY LDL as a measurement of your cardiovascular heath is tell you nothing.

    Many physician do that, which is wrong. Either they don't care or down know; neither of those answers is good.

    Based on your curt response, you are "Parroting" that mantra.

    With that said, here what you and other need to know, regarding...

    LDL

    The determinate factor of your LDL number being good or bad has NOTHING to do with the Total Number.

    Thus, a high LDL number can be good or bad.

    A, low LDL number can be good or bad.

    The Determinate Factor

    Particle Size is the determinate factor of you LDL reading being good or back.

    Particle Size A: This is good LDL. A higher percentage of Particle A means your LDL reading is Good; regardless of if you have a High or Low LDL number.

    Particle B: This is bad LDL. A high percentage of Particle means your LDL reading is BAD; regardless of it fyou have a High or Low LDL number.

    Measuring Particle Size

    A physician can request a test to determine the percentage of Particle A or Particle B you have. However, they never do. Nor do they every educate you on Particle Size.

    However, you can determine if you have more Good or Bad Particle Size by looking at two of your blood profile readings.

    Triglycerides and HDL

    1) Good Particle A Percentage: Low Triglycerides and High HDL mean you have a greater percentage of Particle A.

    2) Bad Particle B Percentage: High Triglycerides and Low HDL mean you have a greater percentage of Particle B. As per Dr Robert Lustig, "You are a heart attack waiting to happen."

    Ratio

    The Ratio of your Triglycerides to HDL will tell you which Particle Size you have more of.

    A reading of 2 or below is great.

    A reading of 4 is bad.

    Doing The Math

    Triglycerides divided by HDL

    Example of Good

    Triglycerides: 84

    HDL: 54

    84 (Triglycerides) divided 54 (HDL) = 1.55; more Good A than Bad B.

    Example of Bad

    Triglycerides: 150

    HDL: 42

    150 (Triglycerides) divided 42 (HDL) = 1.55; more Bad B than Good A.

    Diet Is The Key

    The supplements you are taking and recommend, help to some degree but cannot override a bad diet.

    Thus, you are naive in your recommending those supplement without FIRST.

    Those supplement aren't necessary if you diet is on target.

    Summary

    As always your provide vague information.
