    Supplemnts for a beginner and recovery.

    Hello.
    I have only ever taken whey, creatine and amino acids. What would be the best supplements for recovery from a work out and injury? And can anyone give me a good starting point on which books or places to start learning about supplements and which ones for different situations?
    Thanks.

    my choices are:
    - whey to bring up protein numbers where needed
    - creatine (no brainer)
    - vitamin D if you don't get enough sun exposure
    - EPA/DHA if you don't eat oily fish
    - caffeine if you don't drink a delicious coffee before a workout

    And that's it, every else is (at best) speculative and probably not worth bothering with IMO. Consult examine.com for more specifics and available evidence.

    Creatine, amino acids and a protein powder are a good start. Make sure to get adequate sleep, and remember sore is good even if it doesn't feel good

    If you're meeting your macro and using protein powder to do so, then using free-form aminos is a waste of money. Creatine and protein powder, if you need it, are fine starts. No supplement is going to help you "recover" whatever that may end up meaning. Meet macros and rest and your body will recover fine

    I'd also add for the Creatine or Pre-workout, do not start with a full scoop initially, just see how your energy is with half or less than as I do not find a full scoop necessary IMO (and also cost effective).
