I'm looking for a good website that explains, with research to back it up, what certain supplements are good for. Whenever I do a generic web search all I can find are retailers spouting the wonderful effects of the product.

Is an excellent source for nutritional information. His books are really good. His website is fairly cheesey.

There is hardly ANY scientific evidence (controlled studies with large enough groups) to support any of the supplementation jive that's out there. That's why there's a new supplement fad every season and none of them have any staying power. In practice, they offer precious little, if anything, over a balanced diet. A prime example: non-fat powdered milk is just about as good a protein source as you can find, and certainly the equal of all the "high priced spreads" you'll find advertised. Save your money and eat right.

I'm not really talking about Creatine, DHEA etc etc.... more along the lines of amino acids and stuff like that.

You get amino acids in food, and in a balanced diet, you get all you need and then some. Supplements are essentially "immitation food" and at the best, they can compensate for a bad diet. But since you're serious enough to be interested in the issue, you can learn to eat properly and save your money.
