    You don't need any supplements to gain muscle. Put emphasis on the word 'need'. People take whey because it helps them to achieve their target daily protein intake if they find it hard to eat enough solid food to do so, so its more for convenience. Most other supplements will only really have a marginal effect, unless you haven't sorted out your diet in which case they will have no effect.

    "Be adequate"

    muscle gains come through a sound diet and training programme so it depends on those (particularly the former as this is harder to get right). I presume you are a beginner, if so all of those are a waste at this stage excpet whey protein. Gains come easily at beginner stage, its after a few months when your 'noob' gains have slowed  down that you might want to try experimenting with creatine glutamine etc

    BCAA and glutamine are found in Whey

    HMB is rotten stuff, its also a metabolite of Leucine and leucine is also found in whey.

    Save yourself some money and just use the whey.

    Thanks for the reply guyz !

    I have another problem - Diarrhea !!

    Now, i think the cause of it may be the weight gain shake that im using(which is York). Have you all experienced the same problem ? im not sure the exact cause. it may be that im not getting enough vegetables, or my body isnt use to the high calories, or maybe my body just isnt made for bulking !!? i dont nooo !! please help guyz. Because of this, all the food i am eating is becoming pretty much-USELESS !

    Thanks

    Try cutting out the shake and see if it improves

    i had the same problem  with some mass gainers almost certain it will be the york protein. imo  using a good whey isolate and carb powder is best idea
