Here comes the most demanding & trending topic,
A dietary supplements, give basic nutrients, to the body, for its growth, which would not be possible from just, relying on our normal food day to day.
Therefore, basic Supplements basically includes:-
- Fatty acids
- Amino acids
Supplements are the substances which add, an extra benefit to our daily food.
Probably, all of the nutrients, are not be able to consume, from our daily food, so supplements, compensate the loss of those nutrients, by providing an extra edge, by breaking the plateau.
TYPES OF PROTEIN SUPPLEMENTS
In today’s world, everyone is thinking about protein supplement as a magical pill or a drug, which will make them, muscular, leaner & stronger overnight.
The funniest part of the story is this that people in India considered it is a kind of steroid, which pissed me off, completely !!!!!
WHAT A BULL SHIT, SERIOUSLY!
If you want to learn about anabolic steroids, then check it out, on my blog.
They don’t even know, the basic difference between a proper nutrition & supplements.
We can’t be able to get all the essential amino acids, from our daily diet.
That’s why supplements come into the picture, which provides us the missing amino acids, for a better growth of our muscles.
Remember, if you will go for bodybuilding supplements, in a beginning level of your training i.e under 1 to 2 years, then you will not be able to get much of the benefits from it, as because your body will not be able to digest the protein & you will waste it completely.
It depends on how mature your muscles are, which doesn’t happen overnight, it depends on the intensity level of your training, proper diet plan, intermediate level of experience, then the supplement will do a magic, when everything is in a right place, now you are on a right track.
Now I will discuss the basic types of important nutrients, which any one can be able to take from natural foods without even caring about supplements.
Let’s discuss them, one by one: –
It is an organic compound, required by the body as a vital nutrient, present in our daily diet.
Supplementation is important for the treatment of certain health problems, i.e some of the vitamin deficiency, can be cured easily.

AMINO ACIDS & PROTEINS
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein.
Muscles are built with the help of proteins, which helps in protein synthesis.
Repairing of muscle tissues, is very important, for the growth of muscles.
It is the building block of fats in our bodies.
In the digestion process, the body breaks, the fat into fatty acids, which goes on to the blood stream.
Hence, it’s an alternate source of energy, other than glucose.
These are the kind of dietary supplements, taken by the bodybuilders & athletes.
These supplements, provide extra benefits to the meals, by providing muscle gain, fat loss & performance boosters in endurance levels.

Aware all of you about different kind of Supplements, types, its importance, advantages & disadvantages.
Please note, just don’t rely on any one of the kind, of supplements.
Use supplements, according to your body need & requirement.
My advice is to go for natural foods which consist of, fatty acids, amino acids & protein, minerals & vitamins.
After 2 to 3 years of continuous gym, our body stops reacting to these natural foods because we hit a plateau, so our body requires more amino acids in a form of supplements.
Please be beware of the fake supplements or else stick to the natural food, don’t waste your precious money for any kind of appreciation.
The problem with the youth is this, they don’t want to educate themselves and just do whatever their trainer tells them to do, without even thinking that if their body is ready for particular supplements or not.
Go for bodybuilding supplements only when you reached your natural limit, which is achieved with a rigorous workout, day in & out, for at least 2 to 3 years.
Just don’t jump on the artificial expensive supplements, without even knowing about natural foods, which are your natural supplements.
Just remember the fact, if your training routine, diet plan & intensity of a workout, is not right, then you will not get any results from the market supplements.
If you reached a plateau then only opt for supplements like whey protein, BCAA, omega 3 fatty acids, glutamine, creatine, etc, based on your goal & requirement.
Don’t just rely on trainers today for the advice, use your brain too.
Read articles from various sources & find out the right supplement for you, also check out the MRP price of your city & compare it with the markets at your city, you will get the idea, whether it’s worth purchasing or not.
Never rely on this supplements, instead of a meal, don’t skip your meal because you have taken supplements.
Take supplements as a nitro booster, but the basic fuel is your natural diet.
Everybody has a different goal, related to health & fitness.
Also a different body type, genetics, stamina, power & experience.
So just don’t expect any miracles from this supplements because your relative or friend got awesome results from it.
May be you will get much better results from him or even worst.
I am not here to demotivate you, but I speak my mind & the bitter truth, which there was no one in my life to tell on my face, so I don’t want you to suffer the same problems as I do.
Let me share my experience, after my 3 years of gym , now also I rely on natural anabolic foods & I still got the results, because for me supplements are just an option, not any thing which you should die for, also there are many fake supplements, in the market so beware of them also .
Always consult a doctor before, going on to any kind of supplements, if you haven’t tried it before, just don’t blindly rely on trainers, see the label & ask questions.
