Hi Brett

It's best to ask Dietdoc about supplement use - but really what counts most - is the correct training and a good diet. In fact, I would recommend that you actually consult a dietician to ensure you are eating optimally for weight loss and for training.

Perhaps you also need more recovery time (if you are training really hard), since as you get a little older, so your time needed for recovery increases.

I hope this helps.
Good luck.
