With So Many Body Builder Supplements Available How Do You
Know What To Buy?

Every gym, fitness center and health club sells body builder supplements. They are also promoted in every fitness magazine and store that sells supplements. But with so many out there how do you know what to use?

And how do you choose the best body building supplements to see the greatest muscle building and fat loss results?

It's a fact that if you are serious about improving your physique by gaining lean muscle and burning off all your body fat, you will need to use only the very best body building supplements.

But you need to realize that supplements are just that – they should supplement your diet and the exercises you do in the gym or at home.

You should never look for any supplements to do the work for you. There is no such thing as a magic pill or powder.

Body builder supplements should only be added in to your over all routine after a month or so to see if they add to what you are already doing.

You don't necessarily need any body builder supplements to help make changes to your physical appearance, it's just that certain body builder supplements will make your results better and you'll see them quicker.

If you look for any body builder supplements on the internet you will be confronted with hundreds of thousands of different websites each selling thousands of different products.

Some body builder supplements may provide nutrients that are normally lacking in your bodies cells or are not available in the proper amounts through your diet.

"Key Body Builder Supplements"

Here are some of the more popular body building supplements.

Keep in mind that this is only a very tiny fraction of what is actually available. There are also other products that may help you as well.

Fat Burners:

These types of body builder supplements can be used for a slight edge but what fat burners are safe & effective for immediate fat loss?

Fat burners cause a lot of confusion to most people trying to get completely ripped. The reason for this is that the variety of fat burning and fat loss products on the market is staggering.

There are literally thousands of fat burning supplements being sold all with varying amounts of different ingredients.

Vitamins And Minerals:

Do you really need to supplement with vitamins and minerals if you’re trying to build a lot of muscle and get very lean?

Yes indeed!

But first, what exactly are vitamins and why are they important for bodybuilding and physique enhancement? You can read about vitamins and why they are so important to your success elsewhere on this site.

In the past 5 or 6 decades or so almost all the food we eat have become nutrient deficient. No longer does the food you eat contain the nutrients that are required for health.

Supplementation with vitamins is necessary for long-term health. Remember this – if your health suffers so will your body building efforts.


Although protein is plentiful in North America, protein deficiency among those wanting to drastically change their physical appearance is surprisingly quite common.

But the main questions are what's the best type of protein and in what amount to build a tremendously lean, muscular physique? Well actually, the answer to this question isn't that difficult to figure out.

Issues concerning protein have been debated for years in an effort to reveal the optimal amount of protein you should eat, the perfect time to protein and finally, the best type of protein.

There are a lot of different types of protein but you just need to stick with the types most commonly associated with body building.

Meal Replacements:

Meal replacements are a very important part of your over-all nutrition plan in your quest to build lots of lean muscle.

It's so tough to eat a highly nutritious meal 6 times a day for peak performance. This type of product can help you meet your daily intake of high quality nutrients.

A lot of people also find that they tend to eat less junk food when using meal replacements. Another good reason to invest in them.

Testosterone Boosters:

Testosterone boosters, and there are a lot of different ones out there, are designed to either directly or indirectly affect your androgen.

Testosterone boosters have become one of the most popular supplements sold in North America.

Unfortunately, most people who use this type of supplement expect to notice a drastic difference immediately after using it.

But in reality no body builder supplements work that quick.

If you do notice feeling any different it will be things like having a little bit of trouble falling asleep, slight aggressiveness or irritability, and an increased sex drive. Everyone is different and will respond to things in a different manner.

If you are using an effective testosterone booster you should notice that you're making slight strength increases quicker than normal. You may also notice that you're losing some body fat while on a high calorie diet to increase muscle.

A problem that has been noticed with a lot of these products is lack of proper absorption. In addition, the effects are last for a very short time so you end up taking a lot more than you should.

So you need to be careful and select a testosterone booster that doesn't have these particular problems. It has also been suggested to cycle any testosterone booster you may use so it won't briefly shut down your own production of testosterone.

There are literally thousands of different body building supplements available with each one claiming to be the best.

But you need to remember that a lean, muscular body doesn't miraculously happen overnight. Building a lean, muscular body takes the proper body building exercises, time, patience, diet and certain  supplements.

Make sure you get all the body building supplement info you will ever want before making your decisions. Don't make the same mistake that so many other body builders do and waste thousands of dollars on useless  supplements and in some cases, dangerous body builder supplements.
