Should You Use Bodybuilding Supplements?
I think that I've sunk so much money into my local supplement store, that I've sent all the employees children through college. Everywhere you turn today you can find some company claiming they have a supplement that will do magic to your body. The truth is, that most supplements out there are not going to work for you. There are many low rank supplement companies out in the world that, with good marketing skills, can sell you something that will do you absolutely no good.
Somewhere in the middle of the hype, there are some good products, you just need to know where to look. Two supplements that I often see recommended are:
Whey Protein - This is one of the best sources of protein and can be found in Meal Replacement Powders (MRP). MRP's are a quick, convenient replacement for meals. They are easier to consume than real food (you drink them) and they help you meet your daily protein needs.
Creatine - Although there are critics of this supplement, there is strong support from many natural bodybuilders. The stated benefits of creatine include increased strength and muscle endurance.
Do remember that if you take supplements, they are not a substitute for proper nutrition and training. If you eat junk food and workout poorly, don't expect supplements alone to give you a great body.
