Ep. 8-Round Table Discussion-Supplements

In this second Round Table Discussion we cover a very large and often controversial topic.  Supplements.  There are almost countless options out there for what brand you can take and what you can take it for (as you can see from our display).  Here we try and break down what we find to be the best options for the best results without throwing money away in the process.  Please contact us with any questions.
