Simply go with both. To accelerate your performance and regeneration to achieve better physique, both ways work just fine. It is again not the quantity but quality. Speaking of quality, the products should be organic because better health, better results. The other point is that, the supplements are using other substances that might prove counterproductive, so try to keep it as organic as possible. According to Olympic Committee analysis, almost 15% of the supplements contain substances not only listed on the label but would cause an athlete to fail a drug test.
As to plants, it is again important the quality and the harmony. In other words, it must meet its purpose while not harming the body. So, mind whether they are organic or not as some might contain heavy metals. I also noticed that, some are rich in carbs, therefore take everything in moderation especially when your body is in ketosis. Herbs and supplements are no food substitution only to enhance your competences to get you there.
We should be also aware of what we want to supplement or achieve with them. Therefore, keep track of what you eat and what you lack to reach your goals effectively. I chose only few that I find relevant when it comes to bodybuilding (performance) and those improving your hormones towards making your body more efficient (over-all health). If interested, you can read more on productive supplements and plants in references or ask me anytime in the comments.
