TL/DR: Should I buy different Biotest supplements with my budget? Is anything extraneous/not optimal?
A few months ago, I made a thread in this forum, asking for advice about which Biotest supplements to prioritize, were I to get a significant supplement budget from my parents (college student).
I am now almost finished with my first semester, and, as the dust settles, the situation is as follows:
My monthly supplement budget is roughly $200 - $220
I have been purchasing: 1 bag Plazma, 2 bags Metabolic Drive, Flameout (1-2 depending on the month), Curcumin (1), Superfood (1).
Plazma for peri-workout nutrition
Metabolic Drive to add quality protein to my diet. One scoop upon waking and one before bed.
Four Flameout caps per day – for every single reason that this is a good idea (there are too many).
Four Curcumin caps per day. I tend to get tendonitis in my elbows occasionally. I added Curcumin to my regimen when it flared again and it has been helping since.
Superfood was a late addition. I added it because of a 20% sale. I liked it a lot, and have since made it a permanent monthly purchase – I really like the idea of supporting my college diet.
So, is this a good way to allocate the $200-$220? Does someone with more knowledge than me see a better way? Perhaps something I’m not using that would provide more benefit than something I’m currently using?
Some of my thoughts:
- Each Plazma bag needs to last me one month (training 5 times per week). That’s one scoop per session. I have noticed a remarkable difference while training, and so I do not feel as if the single scoop per session is problematic. But, perhaps it is the case that there would be a very significant improvement if I could use two scoops per session? Perhaps I should reallocate spending to allow for 2 bags of Plazma per month?
- Mag-10? I could technically substitute my two servings of Metabolic Drive per day for one serving of Mag-10 per day. Would this be a better idea?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
