7 Bodybuilding Supplements That Work
by Justin Leonard
Written on October 28, 2000

We hear a lot about sports supplements for bodybuilders. But which ones actually work? Because there are so many to choose from, it's easy to get confused with all of the hyped-up claims. This article will outline which supplements are most beneficial to the consumer. I've narrowed the choices down to 7 supplements. The following supplements are effective:

1. Vanadyl Sulfate

Prolongs muscle pumps. This is due to an insulin spike which increases the amount of carbohydrates stored within the muscles. Also, you will more than likely experience greater vascularity as a result of vanadyl sulfate supplementation.

2. Creatine

Promotes an increase in lean muscle mass, strength, stamina, and energy. Facilitates fat loss while sparing muscle. Increases, muscle contraction and control, and endurance. Creatine is one of the most talked about supplements. The claims may sometimes seem outrageous, but it does as it's supposed to do. Some people can actually gain 10 pounds in 1 week. It may be a temporary weight gain, but you can gain this much weight.

4. L-Glutamine

Speeds up recovery periods between workouts. Prevents muscle catabolism (muscle breakdown). Increases the rate of protein synthesis or the body's efficiency to enable protein absorption. Promotes lean muscle mass. Enhances mood and mental alertness.

5. Whey Protein

The body absorbs whey protein better than any other type of protein, in particular soy and egg protein. It promotes lean muscle mass and prevents muscle catabolism.

6. Vitamin C

Vitamin C poses superior benefits to everyone. Increases strength and energy, speeds up recovery from workouts, and prevents sickness.

7. Multivitamins

Second to water, the multivitamin is the most effective natural supplement. It helps to increase mental sharpness, muscular gains, and overall well being. Also, your chances of getting sick are lessed when you supplement with a multivitamin.
