We would like to preface this article with the definition of a supplement from Oxford Languages:
1. something that completes or enhances something else when added to it.
Ok, now that we got that off our chests…
Please remember that supplements are not magic. They are meant to be supplemental to a solid diet/nutrition protocol, 7 to 9 hours of quality sleep per night, a solid stress management system, good relationships with people, a fulfilling career, among other things that build well-rounded physical and mental health.

1) Stay Alive
2) To Thrive.
