Where to Buy Bodybuilding Supplements

Natural food resources are the best form of supplements

If you are below a year of training, then please don't consider supplements, it is not going to give you that body you see on TV. The initial years of your training should be mostly around wholesome foods.

Eat lots of the following but that is what works.

1. Eggs

2. Milk

3. Yogurt

4. Meat

5. Soya

6. What ever that has protein :)

Supplements are important, but not everything in bodybuilding. Surely they are no Magic Pills.

Order of usage of supplements should be somewhat sequential in this way:

1. Protein Powders

2. Multivitamins


4. Post Workout Drinks - Recuperation (Creatine, Glutamine etc)

5. Pre Workout Drinks - Performance Enhancers (Creatine, Glutamine, NO, & so on)

This directly relates to its cost implications. To be honest, to shell down minimum of Rs 5 - 6K per month for a student is quite difficult on a monthly basis, at-least I couldn't afford it then. But that doesn't stop us from utilizing our money for a good diet. Trust me about 10 years back, we were able to consume about 250gms of protein from natural wholesome diet.

1. Eggs - 25 Whites - about 90gms protein

2. Meat (Chicken/ Mutton/ veal/Beef/ Fish) - 400 gms - about 100 gms protein

3. Milk - 1 Liter - about 40 Gms protein

Vola, this is sufficient for a 100 kilo bodybuilder to make up for his diet. And this would cost per day about

Eggs: 25 eggs @ 50 RS400gms Veal @ 50 Rs1 Liter Milk @ 15 RSSo at about 3500RS all is done for 200gms of protein requirements. Then when you are about 2 years into body building and have gained solid base from lifting, supplements help to go beyond.

Supplements are really handy when you are working, at-least you guys don't have to carry egg white in bottles.

Train Hard, Hog well & Rest, these are the best training years of your life, enjoy them & happy growing.

I have been searching for articles about bodybuilding supplements and protein supplements as well. I find this article very appealing and informative because it has lots of examples and easy-to-follow steps in building a leaner and fitter physique. I've also read some reviews at www.supplementmania.com that these products should contain more natural substances in order to have a better and safer experience with less withdrawal symptoms in the future.

Many thanks for the hub, I really enjoyed and learned from it.

Soni, you know how much I respect you and your writing. If I may, I just wanted to argue against the use of soy as a source of protein for men. Soy is rich in phytoestrogen. While research isn't altogether conclusive, these plant estrogens may have an antagonistic relationship with testosterone. The Shaolin monks use soy to help devirilize themselves.

Other than that, as always, you've written a very informative article.

Thanks a lot joecseko for your respect to my articles. I respect you also for that. I have searched for soy according to your ideas and thinking and found that some of your statements are correct. I appreciate your feedback. Yes, soy is rich in phytoestrogen and this can be related to testosterone to some extent but when I again researched for soy as a source of protein, I found out many articles which are against soy as a protein and many which say that soy is rich in protein. One example is this news article which reveals some amazing facts about soya: http://www.thefactsaboutfitness.com/news/soya.htm

Speaking about the country where I live in, i.e., India, people basically use soya: Here is a link to an assessment of India soy protein market: http://ideas.repec.org/p/ags/saeaed/6796.html

After going through the above report, it is for sure that in India, people use soya as a protein and especially bodybuilders and weight trainers consume soya supplements for their protein needs.

Great Hub. Soy is a great source of protein in the Indian scenario as most of the population is vegetarian apart from pro bodybuilders, weightlifters and wrestlers Soy is a favorite with majority of the population.

Thanks a lot hit training health store and charan for your comments. Soy is of course an excellent source of protein for vegetarians, but as I am a nonvegetarian, I love chicken and eggs.
