Supplements for beginner
I've just started working out, and I'm wondering if its good to take something like Whey protein? What would you recommend, I was thinking about Met-Rx

Whey protein is great. Met-Rx is decent but overpriced. Do a search for protein powder in the Supplement Questions section. There are quite a few threads and polls on this topic.

Get some creatine and protein and you will be ready to go. But like everybody else, you have to do research on it. Theres all kinds of supplements out there.

this is just taken off a web site so im not sure of the truth in it
Flax Oil Benefits
Heart Disease - Flax oil lowers blood pressure and triglycerides. Flax oil decreases the probability of a heart attack and stroke, because it helps keep the arteries clean and free of plaque and cholesterol.
Cancers - Omega-3's in flax oil dissolves tumors - Dr. Johanna Budwig has documented over 1000 cases of successful cancer treatment using Flax Seed Oil along with additional nutritional support.
Diabetes - Omega-3's in flax oil lowers the insulin requirements, close monitoring is necessary. Flax oil also aids in circulation which is an important factor for diabetes. One form of diabetes even orginates from a lack of Omega-3's and and excess of hard fats aggravated by a lack of vitamins and minerals in the diet.
Arthritis - Omega-3's in flax oil have been found effective in the treatment and prevention of arthritis.
Flax oil may noticeably relieve asthma within a few days of use.
PMS - many forms of PMS are complete within one month of using flax oil, vitamin and herbs also contribute
Allergies - Omega-3's help to decrease allergic response.
Flax Oil also helps with the following Inflammatory tissue conditions - water retention, skin conditions, calmness under stress, visual function, adrenal function, sperm formation, MS, and more
The Omega-3's in flax oil are recommended for everybody because these essential nutrients are commonly lacking in North American diets. It must also be noted that in order for the Omega-3's to do the work, other essential nutrients (a good multiple vitamin) must be present in the diet in adequate amounts.

Listen to xzoomzx he made a great point. I useally always go with EAS myself. Even though they cost a little more i have had the best gains off there products. But like he said optinum and prolab make great produst. Prolabs Nlarge2 is an awsome wieght gainer. along with the protien, creatine, and l-glutimne i would not forget to add a good muti vitamn and if you have the money some bcaa's.
