The ultimate supplement stack's for Men and Women's optimal well-being


I always recommend eating real food as opposed to gaining most of your nutrition through supplementation but if you are looking for that lucrative edge when it comes to specific health goals, supplementing can really aid you.

Here I'll run through my favourite, well-researched and proven supplements to aid both Men and Women's physical and mental health.

Let me clarify that these supplements are the best for optimal health, taking into account goals such as weight loss, improving lethargy, de-stressing, building muscle, rehabilitating muscles and joints, creating hormone balance, uplifting mood and many more.



Men's health supplements for physical and mental well-being


Creatine - Mostly used by sports athletes or avid fitness enthusiasts. Creatine is a substance that is found naturally in muscle cells. It helps your muscles produce energy during weight lifting or high-intensity exercise, particularly fast and explosive exercise using speed and strength.

It has also been shown in some studies that when supplementing with glutamine it can increase recovery and muscle mass at an excelled rate through glycogen re-uptake.


Gingko biloba - Ginkgo biloba has many health benefits. It’s often used to treat mental health conditions like Alzheimer’s disease, and fatigue. For this reason it is deemed a very useful and powerful memory and IQ enhancer. Ginkgo may be beneficial for men that want that mental edge when it comes to natural age decline or for helping them perform better at work tasks.
