Food.

multivitamin and glucosamine/chondroitin just to keep your joints healthy for down the road

Fish Oil

Creatine

Protein

BCAA

a 16-yr-old doesn’t need anything else but food.

I would recommend:

Multivitamin

Fish oil

B - complex

Protein shakes

I’d lay off the creatine since you are still growing at an alarming rate. If you just lift and eat you’ll grow. I wouldn’t worry too much.

Just remember that supplements are exactly what they are, supplements. They help a good lifting and nutrition program.

One more thing the best supplement ever.

Good, Deep, Unbroken Sleep. I’m serious about this. No supplement will ever be able to replace that.

Damn, I am going to have to third this and maybe add ZMA. I hate being third. You can get all of these supps here at the T-Nation store. These combined with eating healthy and you’re good to go.

hey bro I’m 16 and I don’t really take much…ZMA worked really well
protein shakes and creatine are good too
i took N.O. explode for a while and boosted my strength a lot.

i eat around 3,500 calories per day, maybe more

thats basically all i really have taken…nothing is worth taking seeing as how we’re to young to realy take anything…haha
