Do you take supplements in your daily life? Is there any benefit that you really feel? 


I usually drink coffee 3 cups a day to make me stay awake & keep focus on my work.
And on the night, Itake 5-htp to make me sleep.

During college, I also take 7500 mg Biotin to help growing beard. 

Just curious is there any good suplement out there.

Just coffee.

To me it has always seemed like a placebo and a money grab.

Passionflower is a boss supplement that is as good as valium. Kills anxiety dead in seconds. I highly recommend.

>Passionflower is a boss supplement that is as good as valium
yeah, there's no way that's possible, have you ever had valium?

I've tried tons of supplements and they're this >>255065 if they actually did anything then they wouldn't be sold as a dietary supplement, they'd be on the shelf with diphenhydramine, fluticasone, cimetidine, guaifenesin, dextromethorphan, ibuprofen, aspirin, etc. real drugs. You can supplement some vitamins in your diet of course but that's about it. Save your money and don't waste it on this snake oil.

makes sense why it's so cheap then. If it really worked, then I imagined it would be 10x more expensive

I have bro. I switched because it's cheaper with no side effects I can tell.

I drink coffee for fun, my main supplements are: collagen powder mixed with water and a drop of 1000IUD vitamin D and some vitamin C effervescent powder (helps the uptake of collagen). Occasionally I'll put some Vitamin B complex in there too. Then when I'm actually working out and living normally, I have another drink that is protein powder + spirulina.

They're just trying to keep up in a womanized world that is increasingly materialistic and unforgiving in it's judgment of appearances.

If you have a proper diet and not living a physically extreme lifestyle or have some sort of health problem that causes deficiency then supplements are a huge waste of money.

Worse is that because of the way the industry is, most of the time you aren't even getting whatever you are paying for on the label.
Just eat food and get some sunshine. That way you are getting your money's worth.

Aside from multivitamin which I mostly take for the vitamin D which I probably lack since I don't go outside often and live in the north I drink a cup or two of green tea every day. I also have L-theanine supplements but honestly I don't notice much difference when I take them alone. With caffeine they do seem to have some sort of effect but it's really subtle and not sure if it's just placebo. I also take 5-htp, melatonin and valerian root for sleep since I have fairly bad insomnia and I don't really want to get on proper sleeping pills. They seem to be working fairly well and I take breaks from the 5-htp and valerian occasionally so they haven't lost their effect either.
I used to drink coffee every morning but it makes my anxiety worse so I don't drink it often nowadays.

What does the collagen do?

Vitamin B Complex + Magnesium + Omega 3 + Lecithin is the best combo as far as I know.
The Vitamin B Complex + Magnesium makes you happier overall and less tired.
Omega 3 for general wellbeing and heart health.
Lecithin to possibly lower cholesterol but definitely cum like a horse

I took some for a while and didn’t notice anything. I think they are more or less scams.

Collagen is a naturally occurring protein in the human body that does a lot of stuff. There's several different types of collagen that do different things. I take a mixed-type supplement to cover several things.
Many people take it because it's good for your skin/hair/nails/teeth/eyes, but it's also good for muscle and bone density, joint/back and arthritis pain (encourages cartilage and tendon growth), intestinal health (I have IBS), heart and brain health (encourages blood flow), etc etc.
Just look up collagen types + their purposes and you can find a supplement that has the types (by roman numerals) that you want. If you do buy some collagen powder, make sure you're not getting one derived from cod fish collagen because cod fish are overfished right now. I take the multi-type unflavoured from Revive Naturals, one scoop a day (the package says the "dose" is two scoops, but I'm fine with one and it's good to build up over time anyway).

I take pills of Valerian extract about 1/2 hour before I go to sleep if I still feel active. Valerian is a sedative but it probably doesn't do anything. I am a vegetarian so I should probably find some vitamin supplements for that.

Its not as powerful as this poster said but passion flower is without a doubt one of the handful of “natural” over the counter things you can buy that actually have an effect.

I highly recommend it to anyone struggling with withdrawal, nerve pain, anxiety, mania or simply a reoccurring feeling of edginess/jumping out of your own skin.

 No.255469

>>255468
Thanks for the recommendation. I see on Amazon that it's inexpensive, too.
