6 Best Muscle Building Supplement

6 Best Muscle Building Supplement

Is there a best muscle building supplement out there that can help us achieve our goals, well the answer is NO. There is not one great supplement out there that can make you get big fast, it comes down to hard work and good sound advice on nutrition. If there was, then you would not have hundreds of different supplement companies trying to sell you their products. If I had to say what the best muscle building supplement out there is I would say it was whey protein as we know that we need protein to build muscle and we know how hard it is to consume all the protein you will need from food when accompanied with a good diet and training routine. Below are some of the best muscle building supplements you can take to gain weight and build muscle.

1. Protein Shakes

Protein is the most important macronutrient you will need when trying to build muscle. Your muscles need protein so they can recover and repair them self so they become bigger and stronger. If you can get all your protein content from food then that is great as this is the best way to do so, but if you find it hard to eat all this food then protein shakes can be a great way to get this macronutrient into your body.

2. Weight gain shakes

Weight gain shakes are shakes that have high calorie content because it is hard to consume all the food you need during the day weight gain shakes are a good way to get more calories in to your body. Plus weight gain shakes are high in carbohydrates, which are good for us as we need a lot of cabs for energy.

3. Creatine

Creatine is the supplement that has received the most publicity in the past years. Basically creatine will help you recover quicker in between sets, and help with an increased volume of work, i.e. pushing the last rep out. It does this by increasing the body’s natural ability to produce ATP (adenosine tri phosphate). We produce energy by breaking the phosphate bond on ATP in the same way the bond on creatine phosphate could be broken to release energy.


BCAA stands for branched chain amino acids which are the amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine. BCAAs are taken up directly by the muscles instead of having to be metabolized by the live, they are a good way for protecting muscles from getting broken down during exercise and for building muscles after exercise.

5. Glutamine

L glutamine is a non essential amino acid and it is the most important amino acid for body builders. Glutamine has a proposed number of benefits to sports performance it is the most abundant free amino acid in muscle cells, it is essential for cell growth and a source of energy for your immune cells. When you train heavy the level of glutamine in your blood falls, therefore weakening your immune system making you more susceptible to infection.

6. Multi Vitamin

Because of the stress that you put your body through with all the hard training, you will lose some of the essential vitamins and minerals you need to help build muscle. If you do not have a varied diet then there is a good chance that you will not be getting all the vitamins and minerals you need through the food you eat so a good multi vitamin will be a good investment as you can pick these up from almost any shop now days and they are fairly cheap as well.
