Introducing
the Examine.com Fitness Guide

Our Fitness Guide highlights which supplements work best, and more importantly, which supplements should be combined to get the results you want. We’ve combined six of our top-selling Stack Guides and added more information on dieting and how to measure your fitness.

Best of all, we make it easy-as-pie to figure out:

  • Each topic begins with an overview of strategies to address common fitness-related problems.
  • Then comes a comprehensive list of the core supplements you should consider taking to reach your desired outcome.
  • We then talk about primary options that may provide substantial benefits under the right context, as well as secondary options that may prove useful but have less evidence for their effects.
  • Next, we move on to inadvisable supplements which you should avoid, as they may only serve to empty your pockets or harm you.
  • Once that's done, we round things out by examining different ways you can assemble your supplement stack so you reach your health and fitness goals, faster.

Who is Examine.com
and why should you trust us?

  • Examine.com is an independent encyclopedia on supplementation and nutrition. We're unique because we are not affiliated in any way with any supplement company and we don't sell supplements. When we recommend a supplement (or say another is garbage), it has no impact on our bottom line.
  • We were founded in early 2011 and since our inception we've had one goal - to be the best source for unbiased information regarding supplements and nutrition. We've been dogged in our resolve to create the most expansive and honest collection of information pertaining to supplements and nutrition on the web. Our team is comprised of doctors, researchers, and pharmacists from all facets of health and fitness, meaning when we research - we get the full picture.
  • This single-minded dedication to providing well-researched and unbiased information has earned us the title of the #1 site when it comes to supplement information. Over 30,000 visitors trust our research and visit us every day. Over 35,000 health and fitness professionals use our Supplements-Goals Reference and if that weren't enough to prove our commitment to neutrality, since 2011 we have been featured on a number of the biggest online and print publications in the world including The Huffington Post, Men's Health, and The Guardian. Examine.com is trusted and for good reason.

Tavis Piattoly needs current evidence based data on dietary supplements for his athletes

I’ve been fortunate to have the opportunity to work with high performance athletes at all levels. The majority of my athlete clients are not only looking to maximize performance through diet but also through safe and effective supplementation. With over 50,000 supplements on the market, it’s difficult to keep up with the latest research which is why I lean on the brilliant team at Examine.com for the most current evidence based data on dietary supplements.

Adam Bornstein knows we're part of the solution

In many ways, the fitness industry is broken. And among the many people trying to fix the biggest issues, Examine.com is a big part of the solution. They provide no-nonsense, accurate information that can help a beginner as much as it can someone who has been living a fit lifestyle for years. Their accuracy and credibility makes them invaluable.

Tom Venuto thinks this is a must-have

With Examine.com, never again will you need to worry about knowing whether the claims of the billion dollar supplement industry are true or false. You’ll have the truth right at your fingertips. Use this encyclopedic resource as your go-to-guide and you’ll never have to waste time searching google and wondering whether what you found is evidence or (biased) advertisement, you won’t have to waste your money or risk your health on personal trial and error, and you won’t even have to sort through the real research (pubmed) because the guys at Examine have spent years doing it for you. Maybe the best part is that, finally the evidence-based trustworthy information we need is all in one place, and is smartly organized so you can find the answers you need in just minutes.

John Berardi and his team use us as a trusted resource

Whenever I want unbiased, meticulously researched, and scientifically credible supplement information, I turn to my friends at Examine.com. They review thousands of studies and give bottom-line supplement recommendations better than anyone else in the industry. For me, my team, and my colleagues, they've become a trusted resource.

Eric Cressey loves our unbiased perspective

The supplement industry can be tremendously confusing for a number of reasons. First, the margins are incredibly high - so there are a lot of unethical weasels with no scientific background making bold and unsubstantiated claims to separate you from your money. Second, it's a dynamic industry, as new products, brands, and research emerge every single day. Fortunately, the guys at Examine.com have streamlined the process of educating us all by providing an incredibly up-to-date resource on the supplements we encounter on a daily basis, as well as some of the more obscure ones that are out there that might 'stump' us. This is an excellent product not only because it's a completely research-backed, unbiased perspective without any financial conflicts of interest, but also because it's exhaustively thorough and well written. I highly recommend it.

Dr. Bryan Chung found something not found in any other resource

Examine.com has become THE repository resource for nutritional supplement information. Most other similar databases fail at what they're good at, which is being accessible and being comprehensive. Their frequent updates stay on top of the literature as it evolves. Examine.com gives me an excellent overview of the body of work, which helps me filter and refine my search strategy when I'm looking up supplements that I get asked about that I've never heard of. The Human Effect Matrix provides interpretation that is lacking in every other supplement database in the world. Most people don't have the time or interest to develop high-level expertise, but need somewhere to turn to to make informed decisions about their supplements. That information is at Examine.com.

Dr. Yoni Freedhoff says to rely on research over opinion

It's insufficient to simply rely on belief, conjecture or internet advice to determine if supplements are right for you. Instead you need to rely on research. With Examine.com's reference guide not only will you find their summary of the research, but also links to the original papers should you want to do your own due diligence. Truly a massive and helpful undertaking.

FAQ

What is Examine.com?

Founded in 2011, Examine.com is an education company led by a growing team of experts — PhDs, researchers, medical doctors, pharmacists, and more. With over 2.5 million visitors each month, our website is the trusted resource on nutrition and supplement research.


Who is the Fitness Guide for?

It is designed for anyone who wants to meet their individual fitness goals using clear and concise guidelines.


I own the Stack Guides bundle; can I get the Fitness Guide at a discount?

Yes. If you own the Stack Guides bundle, you can get the Fitness Guide for just $10.00. Please email us at support@examine.com and we will send you a special link for the discounted price.


Is the Fitness Guide composed of all-new Stack Guides?

The Fitness Guide combines 6 guides we’ve been updating since 2014:
  • Muscle Gain & Exercise Performance
  • Fat Loss
  • Testosterone
  • Cardiovascular Health
  • Joint Health
  • Sleep
We didn’t just heap 6 guides under one cover, however: we merged them into a coherent whole to provide you with a unified reference on fitness supplementation, and we added some exclusive material — a section on measuring your fitness level, another on dieting, and an informative intro for each included Stack Guide.


Will you ever add new Stack Guides to the Fitness Guide?

Yes. As we create new Stack Guides, we’ll add the fitness-related ones to your Fitness Guide.


How often will the Fitness Guide be updated?

We will update the Fitness Guide the same way we update our Stack Guides. Our goal is to update our Stack Guides at least once a year.


Will you sell a print version of the Fitness Guide?

No, we won’t. In order to provide you with the latest information, we don’t offer hard copies of any of our products. So, like our Stack Guides, the Fitness Guide will be a PDF, and each time you download it, you’ll be downloading the latest version.


What is the refund policy for the Fitness Guide?

We offer a 30-day money-back guarantee on all our products. Should you be unhappy with the Fitness Guide for any reason, simply email us at support@examine.com and we will refund your purchase.


Why is the Fitness Guide only available until Friday?

This is a bit of a test case. We're in the process of developing several products, and due to the high demand for a fitness-based product for the New Year, we decided to test the waters with our Fitness Guide. Using your feedback, we'll figure out how to make our Fitness Guide and future products even more useful. You'll see the Fitness Guide again, but it won't be the same and the price won't be either. Of course, if you buy it now for $75, your guide will come with free lifetime updates.
