In brief: Thousands

This is like asking what medicines work? There are thousand of dietary supplements containing a wide variety of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, superfood extracts & herbs.
Of course some are much higher quality than others & what "works" for one person may not work for someone else- it depends on your needs. But most of these "work" for at least some & many have remarkable benefits.

This question has been well answer by another doc.
There is lots of research on what supplements are helpful. The reason you take them makes a difference in what you take. If you want more on-going information, ronald hoffman, md, has a wonderful podcast series and talks about "intelligent medicine" which is the best of natural and conventional meds. Peace and good health.

In brief: Wrong question

The question is what problem do you have that cannot be fixed by natural sources, for which you don't want to take a prescription medicine, and for which there is a supplement that can help? Don't chase supplements for problems you don't have.
They have a role to play, albeit limited, when you have an identified problem and are seeking choices for solutions.
