Body building supplements

Patient

Q: I take a range of supplements for body building and have been doing so for a couple of years. However its recently come to my attention i may be taking to many, as they could be interfering with each.
i take
Impact diet whey protein (includes oats and green tea)
Creatine in the shake
L Glutamine in the shake
Taurine also in the shake
CLA (2 before every meal)
Zinc and magnesium (before bed)
Omega 3 (3 capsules a day)
Chromium Picolinate (200MCG)
and finally L Carnitine

I take them all as advised by the manufacturer, im just concerned they may counter or interfere with each other.

I have recently become ill and i rarely ever become ill, are these combinations weakening my immune system?

many thanks

Symptoms:  sinuses playing up, pressure in my ears, coughing and blocked nose
