Whey Protein

Whey is good for athletes and weight lifters who need additional protein in their diet due to rigorous skeletal muscle stress.

Non athletes who need a quick and easy source of high quality protein may also find it useful and economic however whey lacks a good balance of carbohydrates, fats and micro nutrients and should be taken with a light snack or mixed with lactose free milk to optimize its absorption in the body.

Fish oil

- Reduces certain blood fats (triglycerides) and raises High density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL cholesterol).

These are just some of the many benefits to taking fish oil, 6 - 10 grams spread out through the day will bring enormous health benefits to the individual who includes fatty acids into their diet.

Multivitamin

“By supplementing the diet with additional vitamins and minerals, multivitamins can be a valuable tool for those with dietary imbalances or different nutritional needs. People with dietary imbalances may include those on restrictive diets and those who can’t or won’t eat a nutritious diet. Pregnant women and elderly adults have different nutritional needs than other adults, and a multivitamin may be indicated by their physicians.” - Wikipedia

You should only take a multivitamin with a complete meal consisting of high protein, high fat, minimal carbs. If the instructions advise you to take more than 1 tablet daily, space out the times that you take each required amount, do not take more than 1 capsule at once wait at least 3 - 4 hours before taking another.
