What are Vitamins and do you need them in Your Muscle Building Arsenal

Vitamins are organic substances that the body require in minute quantities to process and digest foods we eat. Neither Vitamins builds muscle nor they provide energy but they act as catalysts triggering the food digestion and procession faster.

Vitamins helps you by by aiding faster digestion and energy generation/transfer and tissue synthesis. In absence of sufficient amounts your body will spend more time trying to find proteins, carbs and Fats than actually using them.

Since intenseWeight Training increases the demands of almost all nutrients, vitamin and mineral supplementation is very crucial.

[NOTE -Wherever you have read about Supplements on this website you will see that I am against supplements until you can eat at least 3 high quality meals a day. Just read the word S-U-P-P-L-E-M-E-N-T-S again. It means additional, add-ons, something which can help to get better results. They are NOT substitutes.]

If there is any supplement you should in your regimen starting today then it would be Multivitamins. Multivitamins are indispensable for a Muscular body and there are many reasons for this.

Make popping that Multivitamin pill a habit and your stomach enzymes will thank you for that.

What are the Multivitamins you need to help you Build Muscle and Lose Weight

A Multivitamin tablet from any well known brand is usually sufficient. Vitamin C has been proven to have additional healing and anti-oxidant effects and I suggest you take 1000mg Vitamin C 2-3 times a day.

Unlike fat soluble vitamins Vitamin C { which is a water soluble one } cannot be stored in the body so you need to provide a constant supply to continue repairing processes.

Any Special Mineral-vitamin Combination recommended


I have been reading about a combination of Zinc and Magnesium aspartate as in ZMA and read the claims how they help raise testosterone. I have my doubts as I found no such help. Also if ZMA can produce steroid like effects then why would so many bodybuilders risk taking hormones!

Where to buy your Vitamin Supplements


Buy vitamins always at your local health store. Buying them form Bodybuilding Supplement stores can be very expensive without any difference in the efficacy. If you are ordering your Supplements's Mega store then you might want to buy it from them.
