Depends what you are looking for in life.
At the end of the day, it is dependent on your budget and work outs. Looking to compete? Then take the time and resources to get the best possible protocol. Week end warrior? Basic of BCAA's will do.
But how is your diet? THAT is the crucial part.
But really, do we really need supplements? That is up to you. At my age (49), Plazma is a god send to me. I can push hard and be good to go the next day. Do I NEED it? No. I prefer to invest in myself so I can enjoy what I have been doing most of my life.
Just don't look for a shortcut and expect the same results as the top end of the supplement chain.
