3 Key Points:
Knowing what supplements to take is a process that you need to invest time and energy into. Spend time reading labels, reviewing products and seeing what is out there so you make the right choices for you and most important ask why. Why you need to take certain supplements if they have been recommended to be sure the answer reflects your goals.
When choosing the right protein powder as a meal replacement or recovery, look for pure proteins if possible. This will save you from ingesting extra processed things you do not need and that you can simply add too with real whole foods to make a meal replacement.
You need to look at your investment in your health as a way to no save money today but way to save money in the future on health complications. Your health should not be something you do not place value in.
