Supplements to Gain When Over 50?

I am 51 yrs. old. I have dieted down to 155, have burned off about all the fat. Now I want to gain weight. What are the best supplements I should be taking??

Food.

No, really.

Maybe, provided that you’re already getting enough food (and exercise), maybe wolf down a couple servings of Grow! every day. It’s just bulk protein, so it’s really more like food than a supplement.

Now, if you wanna add supplements to that, and provided that the Food & Exercise Department is in good shape, and given that you’re over 50, try Alpha Male.

It’s a testosterone booster, so (provided that you exercise-and-eat correctly) it will help with muscle development.

In any case, these things are called “supplements”, not “replacements”. :wink:
