Posted Sep 15 2009 11:51pm
Most of us spend countless hours in a gymnasium, sweating it out and straining every single muscle in the body to lose flab, gain muscle, excel at a sport, reshape our bodies and change our lives.
With the influx of several competing ideas in the field or health and fitness, it is easy to get confused. At this point we must question ourselves – Is our normal nutritional intake and diet enough to support our goal of attaining the perfect physique?
This is when external supplements and nutritional additives come into the picture.
The following are popular supplements available in the market for professional bodybuilders, athletes and just about anyone aiming towards that perfectly chiseled body and ripped abs:
1. Animal Pak contains performance optimizers such as pyridoxine alpha-ketoglutarate (PAK), carnitine, lipotropics and the like. Animal Pak equips the body with mega-doses of necessary vitamins and minerals that result in significant anabolic benefits and catalyze the chemical reactions that make training and building muscle easier and faster.
2. Whey Protein provides the body with the building blocks used for building muscle tissue. By being a direct precursor to building muscle, the nutrients from high quality whey protein can help one's muscles recover and grow faster. It also aids the production of essential amino acids such as glutamine.
3. Firelean EF is a dietary supplement that encourages fat reduction. This diet supplement claims to suppress the user’s appetite while boosting energy levels. Key components for these functions are Caffeine, Citrus Aurantium (suppresses appetite) and Green Tea Extract.
Since there is a lack of published clinical research combined with the company’s reluctance to publish a full ingredient list, this may not be treated as a comprehensive solution for weight loss.
4. Novedex XT helps enhance the natural production of testosterone and minimizes the production of estrogens in the body. This product is an effective way to trigger a potent physiological response in order to gain lean mass, strength and endurance while helping to achieve that chiseled look.
