Muscle building supplements are dietary supplements commonly used by those involved in bodybuilding and athletics. Muscle building supplements may be used to replace meals, enhance weight gain, promote weight loss or improve athletic performance. Here are the best supplements for muscle growth.
1. Leucine-Enriched BCAAs
Lots of recent studies have highlighted the positive effects of taking leucine – it can increase protein synthesis, which boosts muscle growth and recovery, by up to 145% – but for it to be most effective you should take leucine-enriched BCAAs (Branched-Chain Amino Acids).
The benefits include less muscle damage, less pain from training, greater time to exhaustion on all-out exercise tests and greater muscle growth. Leucine-enriched BCAAs are especially valuable for older people who have a harder time building muscle.
