Or is it? Well, clearly it is.
But do you need them?

But what about vitamin supplements?
Ahhhhh, good question.
When you're looking to change your body's composition for the positive (ie. lose fat, gain muscle or grow another arm) the number one most important thing you have to nail first of all, is your diet.
You've probably heard that losing fat is 75% diet, 25% exercise, and that's

I need a hit, Baby, give me it
You're dangerous, I'm loving it
Too high, Can't come down
Losin' my head, Spinnin' 'round and 'round
Do you feel me now?
Oh, The taste of your lips, I'm on a ride

Late nights, early starts, lost weekends.
You feel invincible and indefatigable
.And then you turn 30 and... Well it's just not quite as easy.
You might still want to party and get drunk, but the hangovers and hang over of the weekend get harder to shift.
If you've burnt the candle at both ends you discover it has an effect on your
You have to look after yourself, to be able to look after anyone else. I'm using the phrase 'look after' loosely here.
I don't necessarily mean 'physically care' for someone who needs constant attention, just give someone any kind of care.
