Supplement Costs p/ Month

How much do you spend on monthly supplements, both Biotest and others?

For myself it seems to be between 100-200, depending on what pills I’m popping. I always use Metabolic Drive, Surge, and ZMA. This month I’m also trying HRX.

Around $7.50

Depends on the month, but usually between $200 and $300.

probaly a little under 200 bucks

I consider protein/MRPs as part of my food bill… but including those, I’d say around 200 every six weeks. I don’t to anything fancy. Protein, Metabolic Drive Complete, Metabolic Drive bars, Surge, ZMA, creatine, Flameout. Add to that a multi and greens supp, and that’s all I take.

I crack up when I see guys spending $500 or so a month on all the latest super supps. For that kind of bread, might as well get a bottle of stanazolic.

The month I’m giving TRIBEX Gold a run. The only “fancy” Biotest supp that worked for me was TRIBEX 500. I tried about all the rest - including when they had that adro spray (circa 2000?).

I’m hoping to see some results from the gold: I especially like the data showing an increase in bone density. At this phase in life, I don’t care much about muscles: just bones, ligaments, and my heart (yeah, the heart is a muscle, but you get what I mean).

other than the fact that i am about to buy stuff for the VDiet, my typical amount for supps is just enough to keep my protein good in stock so about 25 bucks maybe… sometimes thats bimonthly…

It comes out to a tub of creatine every 4-5 months.
