I'm often asked about what supplements I take and I haven't done an update on that in a while, so here we go!
If there is one thing I would want you to try the most out of this entire list, it's this Casein. IT TASTES SO GOOD! I just got my first tub a couple of weeks ago and it is literally the perfect cure for a late night sweet tooth. It's cookies and cream flavor and I've used it in a shake, as pudding, and as a mugcake and absolutely love it. Casein is great to have before bed since it's a slow release protein-- I find that when I don't have it before bed I'm more likely to wake up in the middle of the night or early in the morning super hungry.
I've been using the MRM all natural Wheyhttp://mrm-usa.com/products#!/~/product/id=6288471 for a while now and love it for a few reasons- It mixes really well in shakes and it also bakes well too. I've tried baking with a lot of different protein powders and some of them are just plain terrible-- this one is perfect and I use it in all my baking. I like the vanilla flavor because it's the most versatile and if I ever have a craving for chocolate I just add a little unsweetened cocoa powder.
I have the BCAA's + Glutamine in both the pill and powder form-- I prefer to take the capsules after my workouts and if I happen to just be doing cardio, I'll use the powder in my water. If I'm feeling super sore or I had a killer workout that day I'll also take some before bed to help with recovery.
CLA is a fatty acid that you can find in dairy and meats but only in small amounts. Some studies have also shown that it can aid in fat loss- always a plus!
And lastly Relax-All is great for knocking you out at night! Whenever I take two I get super super sleepy, it's definitely my go-to on nights I'm struggling to sleep (which is every night!).
