As a bodybuilder or athlete, using supplements to augment your workout routine is a great way to maximize your performance and muscle gain during training. Nutrition is a vital part of exercising, whether you are wanting to build muscle or maintain muscle while losing weight or enhance your physical performance and endurance, supplements can help achieve your specific needs faster and more effectively.

Bodybuilding Supplements for Muscle Growth and Maintenance

Protein is universally acknowledged as a great bodybuilding supplement. The building block of your muscles is protein therefore increasing your protein intake can help you gain muscle mass and strength. The amino acids in protein also repair the muscle tissues that tear slightly during exercise. Including plenty of protein in your nutrition regime is therefore beneficial not only for building muscle but for recovering faster, minimizing delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) so that you can get back to training faster. 

Read below for more information on why we add BCAAs and include other supplements for muscle growth.

Physical Performance and Endurance

As well as Protein, Magnesium, Creatine, and Electrolytes should be included in your exercise routine as they help you maximize your physical performance during workouts. Replenishing your electrolytes improves endurance by ensuring you can work out longer without muscle fatigue. Similarly, Creatine and Magnesium both assist in (ATP) production which provides energy for things like muscle contractions as well as blood circulation

Protein and supplements for bodybuilding 

Besides the amino acids in protein that assist in repairing muscles after a workout, Omega-3 is also a great supplement for recovery as the fatty acids reduce muscle soreness as well as being great for your overall nutrition, cardiovascular and mental health

Our protein supplements are plant-based and have additional Branch-Chained Amino Acids (BCAAs) to super-boost muscle growth and strength during training. They do this by reducing muscle breakdown while you train so that you are able to continue training harder for longer.

Protein is also useful for weight loss (without losing muscle) as it reduces ghrelin, also known as the hunger hormone. In essence including enough protein in your diet helps you feel fuller for longer helping you lose weight without compromising muscle mass. We also include fermented protein and digestive enzymes in our protein and BCAA supplements to aid optimal digestion. 

Supplements for improving overall physical performance and health

Besides assisting in Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production (which also has a positive long-term effect on enhancing muscle growth), both Creatine and Magnesium improve physical performance in other ways. The muscle boost from Creatine makes it especially useful during bursts of high-intensity training.  And Magnesium is vital for maintaining the function of muscles and nerves ensuring a higher level of focus and efficiency during your workout as well as helping to keep your bones strong.

This approach of full-body nutrition as a bodybuilder, athlete, or just someone who wants to maximize workout results is why we suggest multi-nutrients and electrolyte replenishment supplements. By drinking electrolytes, you replenish minerals lost due to sweating during workouts. This improves your endurance as you can keep working out longer without tiring which consequently assists in building muscle faster. This is because electrolytes are essential for producing energy and contracting muscles, therefore, not replacing them means that your workout becomes more tiring and less effective. 

Vitamin D, B12, and probiotics are some other ingredients we use in our supplements to improve overall nutrition, muscle support, energy levels, and digestive health. All our supplements have a list of uses and ingredients so that you can choose the products that will best support your bodybuilding and workout needs.
