It’s not easy to lose some weight and get the muscles, at the same time. It takes time, regular exercise, dieting and the proper use of supplements.
Vitamins and Minerals
The best way to start is multivitamins supplement. They will provide good health to your body, enough material to build and grow the muscles and give enough energy to burn some fat. Multivitamins will give your body nutrients it needs. Most of the obese people are actually malnourished, lacking vitamins and minerals. They can prevent that by taking multivitamins.
There are also some “greens” supplements. Usually, healthy food stores make a powder out of the healthy wheat grass and barley and that’s the potent stuff, really good for you.
Minerals, such as zinc, calcium, and magnesium are necessary to build the muscles and lose some weight. Multivitamins may have some of the minerals, but be aware that your body could need some more. Some recommends using 1200mg of calcium and 600mg of magnesium every day. Multivitamins usually contain enough of zinc, but just to be sure, take 15 to 50mg of this mineral every day.
Proteins are needed to build the muscles, it’s that simple. Use enough protein in your meals and exercise regularly, to give your body opportunity to make some muscles. And just then, use some protein supplements, to boost your muscle growth.
Working out in the gym may affect your joints. That’s when joint protective supplements come handy. Provide enough for your joints using vitamin C, glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM and collagen.
Essential Fatty Acids (EFA)
Take enough of fatty acids, they will keep you healthy, improve your immune system and also improve the growth of the muscles. EFA are omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, usually found in flax seed oil, krill oil, olive oil and fish oil. Any of these EFA in the dose of just 5g will be helpful to boost your muscle growth.
Studies have proven the effectiveness of glutamine and creatine. Don’t use anything that doesn’t have any scientific proof behind it, like those NO2 supplements. These mentioned, creatine and glutamine, you should start using when you fixed your diet, started working out, and after you had your supplements. Use one of them at the time, see how your body reacts to the supplement, and change it for another. Keep using the one that is giving better results.
It is often said that the use of supplements can get you some extra result, even some 5% extra results.
