Dietary supplements are a must for bodybuilders. They optimize the development of muscles and boost their energy during training. There are many products to use in this context. They have different effects and you will have to make the right choice to observe satisfactory results. I invite you to browse through the articles in this category which give detailed explanations of the different products available, in order to help you make the best choice and use them in the best conditions.
The first use of anabolic steroids
dates back to the 1930s. These substances are known for their effectiveness in helping the bodybuilder gain spectacular muscle mass faster. Their fat-burning effect also helps to develop better quality muscle, virtually fat-free. They are generally available in two modes of administration: injection and oral.
However, the use of anabolic oral steroids is prohibited in France and in many European countries. These products cause side effects that are sometimes very serious and can even lead to death. I note for example liver disease, risk of stroke or heart problems. There are also other risks such as baldness, gynecomastia or the appearance of acne. I therefore recommend that you opt for the following legal and healthier alternatives that produce the same results. They are manufactured by the Crazy Bulk brand:
Testosterone is classified as a steroid hormone. It is secreted in large quantities in men in the testicles and in women in the ovaries. It is also responsible for male physical characteristics. However, it is especially appreciated by athletes, especially bodybuilders, for its ability to promote rapid and advanced muscle development. It also promotes protein production in the body.
This hormone makes it possible moreover to decrease the time of recovery after a session of musculation without harming the efforts and/or deteriorating health. The athlete can thus train longer and more intensely for more interesting results. This is why he chooses to buy testosterone supplements
such as Testogen
. I suggest you turn to the Crazy Bulk brand products for boosters:
Note however that there are still other interesting products
Muscle mass gain is essential to have a well-designed body and superhuman strength like bodybuilders. However, it is just as important to eliminate as much of the fat that accumulates as possible. This is the reason why some athletes choose to take fat burners. These are also excellent energy boosters.
These dietary supplements are generally recommended during the dry period. Each product acts differently and you should choose according to the effect you are looking for. Some act as an appetite suppressant. You then eat less in order to promote the loss of fat mass. Others improve your metabolism to help your body tap into the fat reserves that have built up. Note also that you can take them as a preventive measure.
There are many options for fat burners. However, I recommend that you inform yourself about the compositions and possible side effects before making your choice so as not to affect your health. In addition, some products are prohibited in France and most European countries. I recommend that you turn to one of the following supplements. They have already proved their effectiveness with many users and are not particularly dangerous:
- PhenQ: this is a natural fat burner whose main ingredients are caffeine, chromium picolinate, nopal, capsi-max powder and L-carlitine ;
- ShredCBD: promotes fat burning thanks to 3 natural ingredients: canabidiol, green tea and Garcina Cambogia ;
- Hunter Burn : fat burner of the Roar Ambition brand;
- Clenbutrol: a legal and healthier alternative to Clenbuterol.

BCAA (Branched Chained Amino Acid)
BCAA’s are branched chain amino acids that are essential for the proper functioning of the body. However, the human body is not able to synthesize them naturally and must therefore draw them from food or food supplements. They actively participate in protein metabolism and the process of muscle building. These are the reasons why they are highly appreciated by bodybuilders. You will find a taboo-free comparison of the best BCAA’s available on the market here
But beware, BCAA’s are not necessarily safe. Numerous side effects have been reported following abusive use: digestive problems, reduced libido and/or motor function. It is therefore necessary to be familiar with the product before thinking about taking it.
Some athletes also prefer to take dietary supplements to maximize the efficiency of their workouts and to have more energy. They must be taken before the sessions. Many products are currently available on the market to help you in this process.
However, the problem is that some of them are of poor quality and can even have disastrous consequences on your health. This is why I decided to present you with a comparison of the best pre-workout boosters
to help you make the right choice.
