If you want to make your program as efficient as possible, then you need some supplements, because nowadays, foods are so processed that it is impossible to get all the proteins, vitamins and minerals that your body needs in order to run at maximum efficiency.
You will need to use protein supplements if you are a vegetarian or can't get enough protein from your regular diet. Don't fall prey to uneducated opinions made by ill-informed people who don't understand fitness or have never lifted a dumbbell in their life - not even the so-called "expert" dieticians. Most of them have never lifted a dumbbell in their life either. Use your own head. We've heard too many people say these supplements are not "natural." These same people will turn around, go home and feed their babies and children with powdered foods and drinks. So what's the difference between any of these products? Isn't COMPLAN a "complete planned food" for the growing child fortified with protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals? So then why is a protein supplement made from the highest quality protein source "un-natural" and "unhealthy?" What are we so scared of? Is it the fact that these products actually work and show the dramatic results that they claim?
The fact is WHEY PROTEIN is one of the best sources of protein that not only helps build lean muscle tissue but also boosts the immune system and ensures faster recovery from strenuous workouts and injuries. HIV patients, Cancer patients have used WHEY successfully to live healthier lives and reduce the negative effects of strong medication and radiation therapy drastically.
To find out more about the truth on whey protein, get on the net. You'll be amazed seeing the research available supporting all the above facts.
You may not use these products but it's important to have correct, first-hand information.
Now, usually people think that supplements are the most important part of a weight loss or bodybuilding program. The real truth is that supplements are just supplements to an already good diet. Supplements do not make up for improper training and a crappy diet. Supplements only work when your diet and your training program are already perfect.
Now that we know why supplements are a good addition to our training and nutrition program, lets go and see which supplements are an important addition to our daily diet. We've divided the supplements into two categories.

Category 1: Essential Supplements

1. A Potent Multiple Vitamin and Mineral Formula with Extra Calcium & Vitamin E
They are essential to insure that our body will operate at maximum efficiency. On a very simplistic level, without vitamins and minerals it would be impossible to covert the food that we eat into hormones, tissues and energy.

2. Vitamin C
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that improves your immune system and helps you recover faster from your workouts by suppressing the amount of cortisol (hormone that kills muscle and aids in the accumulation of fat) that is released by your body during a workout.

3. Meal Replacement Powders containing Whey Protein & Pure Whey Protein Powders
Because of hectic schedules it is impossible to eat the five perfectly balanced meals a day that are required to help us get in shape. Therefore, these supplements can be used as "fast food".

4. Fish Body Oil Capsules or Flax Seed Oil

Category 2: Performance Enhancing Supplements
1. Creatine: A Nutrient that enhances the ability of the body to hold water inside the muscle cell (not outside where it would make you look bloated); thereby increasing your body’s ability to lift heavier weights and recover faster between sets and training sessions. It also increases your definition and your pumps when you go to the gym. There is some research that indicates that it may also help you burn fat.

2. Glutamine: The most abundant amino acid in the muscle cell. Glutamine produces a strong anti-catabolic effect (muscle preserving) in the body and there is research that indicates that it also helps strengthen the immune system and helps increase growth hormone levels.
