I am an certified fitness trainer and nutritionist more than that I am a fitness lover...I will share my experiences and knowledge with you.

What is Supplements?

If you are in bodybuilding and any power-lifting game you had heard the name of Supplements. Supplements are used to enhance your normal performance to a little extra so you can achieve your fitness goals easily. People usually considered it as any magic pills that will bring any drastic change overnight but this concept is wrong. Supplements just increased your performance by 5-10% rest depends upon your diet and how you train, how many hours you sleep, and your water intake. If you are doing all these things properly and with the help of supplementation you will achieve your goal whether it is fat loss, muscle gain, lean muscle mass, etc. A supplement can provide nutrients either extracted from food sources or synthetic, individually or in combination, to increase the quantity of their consumption. A supplement can be in the form of powder or pills and there are a variety of supplements for the bodybuilding, claiming varieties of benefits but only a few of them are useful for yourself. It depends on you how many supplements you have to use according to your needs and budget. For example, if you are a professional builder your needs are different so you have to consume supplements according to your goals and if your goal is just to be fit and healthy your needs are less. A Professional bodybuilder easily uses 6-8 supplements and even more such as Protein, BCAA, EAA, Glutamine, etc but a normal gym-going guy needs 2-3 supplements or he can build a good body even without any supplements just by focusing on his diet and exercise. If a guy who wants to be just fit starts using supplements recommended for professional then that is just a waste of money for him because he is not taking diet what a professional is taking and also not doing exercise with that intensity so you cannot achieve your goal. The Conclusion is that first set your goal and then work according to your plan then all the things will go according to you. In this article, we will talk about what are the best supplements for muscle gain.


Whey Protein is a by-product of milk, Whey protein is considered a complete protein as it contains all 9 essential amino acids. It is low in lactose content. Whey Protein has the highest absorption rate which means it absorbs faster than any other protein foods and also has the highest biological value i.e. 104. Whey Protein has the amino acid Leucine, which is known to stimulate muscle protein synthesis at the molecular and genetic level. Whey protein increases muscle mass and strength by releasing anabolic hormones such as insulin, which is responsible for our muscle growth.

Creatine is one of the most well-researched sports nutrition ingredients. When used in conjunction with regular weight training, it has been shown to support muscle size, strength, and power. Creatine not only improves physical performance but also reduces mental fatigue and improves mental performance. Creatine helps make more fuel available to the muscle in the form of ATP. This extra fuel ensures that the muscle works faster and longer and recovers faster after intense exercise or sustained physical activity. This also means that there are less muscle soreness and enhanced endurance.

Branch Chained Amino Acids which is known as BCAA, basically consists of 3 essential amino acids Leucine, Isoleucine, and valine. These three amino acids Leucine, Isoleucine, and valine considered essential amino acids because your body is not able to produce itself so you have outsourced them with supplements or foods such as Eggs, Chicken, Red Meat, etc. BCAA’s helps in reducing fatigue your body gets while performing exercise and also helps in increasing performance. Out of these 3 amino acids, Leucine is the most important in building muscle protein. BCAA helps in reducing muscle soreness and also helps in increasing muscle mass.

Glutamine is an amino acid that our body produced on it therefore it is considered as nonessential amino acids. Glutamine is one of the primary amino acids that is found in your skeletal muscles. When you consume Glutamine supplement, you increase the glutamine levels in the blood so that your muscles have a constant supply of this vital nutrient. Glutamine is absorbed quickly by the muscles, any breakdown is prevented, thus improving recovery and delaying muscle fatigue. L-glutamine is known to improve immunity significantly.
