In my book I make several recommendations for supplements based on my own clinical experience and the research presented from the fine folks at To remind you, Examine doesn’t sell supplements, only information about them based on the latest and greatest research.

All supplement companies are definitely not created equal, however, and what you can get down the street at your local drugstore, or even many health food stores is often made from sub-par ingredients from China or wherever. My suggestion is that you get your supplements from a company that makes their own products and does so in the U.S.

To that end, I’ve set up an account with Douglas Labs. They fulfill all the criteria above and have a drop shipping program that will bring what you need right to your door. Just go to, and create an account. From there you can order what you want, including creatine, whey protein (pure whey isolate, by the way, not a bunch of filler), vitamin D, K, magnesium, and fish oil. Often there are several choices of each product depending on your needs.

If we’ve spoken about supplements at the office, or if you’ve read them in the book, and you have any questions, please contact me. I’m here to help.
