IMO, supplementation can help with plateaus, but 90% of your goal will likely be achieved through changing up your training routine and possibly your diet.
Your muscles will inevitably adapt to the training you normally do. When that happens you will typically experience a "plateau". Those are the times to change up your training. Don't stick to the exact same routine for more than 8 weeks or so if you want to avoid plateaus all together. I know it's sometimes hard to walk away from a program that has been working, but remember you can always come back to it later. Keeping things from getting stale is the name of the game.
So #1: change you training routine for at least 8 weeks
#2: make sure you taking in enough calories and protein to suit your needs
#3: creatine, NO products, tribulus, etc. could always help, in conjunction with #1 and #2.
