    Supplements I should try?


    A sport's clinic recently opened up where I live, and one of the owners is a GA for my biomechanics class at school, he stopped me today after class and wanted to know if I would be interested in testing some supplements for them. The thing is, it is free and I get to pick the supplements I think is best, they will then order them and give them for me to try. Now my question is, what are some supplements that people here have wanted to try, and/or think this place should carry? I'm thinking price isn't a big of deal, and since it's sports related I'm guessing most of what they are looking for is bulking stuff.

    Just general supplements... anything (legal) on the market today, by any company. they just want start getting some ideas. the way they are going about it is crappy way and loses them money when they could just read what other people take online, but hey their loss = my gain right?

    If it's free I would go with phophatidyl Serine because it's reall y expensive but really helpfull at decreasing post exercise cortisol levels.

    Title: Blunting by chronic phosphatidylserine administration of the stress-induced activation of the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis in healthy men.
    Author: Monteleone P , Maj M , Beinat L , Natale M , Kemali D
    Source: Eur J Clin Pharmacol, 42(4): 385-8 1992

    Abstract: The effect of chronic administration of phosphatidylserine on the neuroendocrine responses to physical stress has been examined in a placebo-controlled study in 9 healthy men. Phosphatidylserine 800 mg/d for 10 days significantly blunted the ACTH and cortisol responses to physical exercise (P = 0.003 and P = 0.03, respectively), without affecting the rise in plasma GH and PRL. Physical exercise significantly increased the plasma lactate concentration both after placebo and phosphatidylserine. The results suggest that chronic oral administration of phosphatidylserine may counteract stress-induced activation of the hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis in man

    800mg pre workout= 30-40% cortisol reduction.

    Cortisol has a catabolic effect on muscle tissue.
