Damn... The last time I bought supplements was plenty years ago... Now there's about 5 bajillion of each thing!

A buddy of mine reckons I should look at PW, Creatine and Whey.
I know generally speaking you get what you pay for... But I've read through a few threads on here where peeps have been getting whey for super cheap (compared to online stores).
  1. How is the USN stuff (USN Blue Lab 100% Premium Whey Protein Vanilla - 2kg)
  2. How is the Nutritech stuff (Nutritech Premium Whey - Chocolate 3.2kg)
  3. Any specific Creatine that is better than others or is it a pick something random and see?
  4. Any guidance on PW?

There's SO much stuff I'm a tad overwhelmed... sorry for the very noob questions.
I read a few threads and I saw the BSSA is gone now. I found another link to puresupps but there is no store there anymore.

Is there a "forum guy" I can support instead of Dischem/Takealot?

*notes
I'm not cycling or using any other chemical aids at this point... Not leaning towards it right now.
Training 4 to 5 times a week at the moment using an the bodyspace app to track my performance
Doing some squash once or twice a week also.
My general energy levels are a little "low"

I like the nutritech products. Good quality and bang for buck on takealot. I use their aminoboost BCAA and Whey often. Their chocolate premium whey is decent. I mix it with Nomu skinny hot chocolate powder (sugar free).

Most of the creatine monohydrate products from popular brands come from the same Creapure protein from Germany. So whether it's USN or Optimum Nutrition it's the same stuff. Buy the cheapest creapure. If you are concerned about the water retention from creatine monohydrate, get creatine ethyl ester. But there is no strength or endurance benefit.

I have been using Nutritech products for over 5 years. As mentioned above: Good quality and decent prices. Recently tried out NPL as well and I enjoyed their Vanilla Whey.
