Supplements are a set of collectibles that you can find during your progress in The Last of Us Part 1. They are used to help Joel and Ellie improve their survival skills. Hence, finding these collectibles carries more importance than just unlocking a trophy or achievement.
Where to find Supplements in The Last of Us Part 1
There are two types of supplements that you can find in the game. The potted flowers and large bottles are worth 10 supplements each while the small bottles are worth 5. You also get a supplement from each Shiv door.
There are 800 supplements in total to find to get Joel and Ellie fully upgraded. Searching for all of them is not going to be easy, especially during your first playthrough.
