There are supplements you can't ignore, essentials like whey, creatine, or BCAAs . Others are to be tested and may surprise you.

Whey and vegetable proteins

Protein is the first supplement you think of when it comes to building muscle. During mass gain, it is important to consume enough but it is not always easy or practical. Supplements like  whey protein or plant-based protein can make your life easier and boost your muscle mass gain .

Whey, a dairy protein found in whey, has many benefits. A very high biological value first, with an almost perfect amino acid profile and a BCAA level of up to 25%  as is the case in Whey Isolate Nutripure!

Soluble and digestible, whey has the particularity of assimilating quickly and stimulating protein synthesis (anabolism) like no other protein. Like creatine, this protein stimulates the growth hormone IGF-1 and the immune system via glutathione. We can only recommend it in the mass gain phase!

It is taken in the morning upon waking, before exercise (if it is long) and after training for anabolism and recovery.

If you are vegan, you can go for plant-based protein powders . These supplements have evolved a lot qualitatively, and the success is there. Athletes practicing strength or endurance sports have higher protein needs, whether they are vegan or not.

By excluding all animal products from your diet, you must make an extra effort to ensure that your diet is still adapted to your sporting activity . Taking a vegetable protein will be of great help to you. For example, rice or pea protein isolate are an excellent source of protein.

Creatine

Creatine is an interesting supplement when trying to gain muscle mass. Naturally present in the diet, taking it regularly helps to increase the stocks in your muscles to saturation and to increase the amount of energy available for intense exercises of short duration.

In practice, you will gain a little strength but above all increase the intensity of your training, which will result in greater muscle gains. Also, once in the muscles, creatine will make you gain muscle size because it draws water into the cells. You will therefore gain volume quickly from the start of the creatine cure, and maximize muscle gains over the long term by training harder.

Last thing,  creatine stimulates growth hormone levels and therefore promotes muscle gain through this. As you can see, this supplement works on multiple counts. It would be a shame to deprive yourself of it during a period of mass gain, especially since studies show that it is harmless to health .

Small doses of 3 grams of creatine will be taken over a period of at least 8 weeks. Continuous use - during the "sporting season" - is nevertheless possible.

BCAAs

BCAAs are  very special amino acids. They increase protein synthesis and minimize the effects of muscle catabolism during muscular effort . Basically, to gain muscle and above all to prevent their destruction. With whey, it is an interesting supplement when practicing strength sports such as bodybuilding.

Omegatix (Oil)

Another supplement that we recommend when gaining weight:  Omegatix (Oil) ! These are essential fatty acids found in oily fish such as salmon, mackerel or sardines, but also in soybean oil, nuts or even avocado. These lipids cannot be made by the body. They must therefore be provided by food or supplementation.

Omegatix Oil have many virtues  : good for the heart, anti-inflammatory properties, lower bad cholesterol etc. This type of supplements may seem useless for athletes but it is a mistake! Because they have an impact on both health and performance.For example, for recovery, they can help reduce the incidence of body aches and speed up their disappearance . They also make your immune system more efficient, a plus for athletes who train hard (too much) and who don't want to get sick... Also, it is recommended to consume them to fight against chronic inflammation in the body. of which some athletes may be victims.
