No one should take any dietary supplements at random. You should not buy them because they are just trendy, popular and sell well. All supplements for athletes work in some specific way. There are no universal preparations. Therefore, before you start taking them, you should determine your goals which you want to pursue and which you want to achieve faster with the help of a supplement matched to them.
People who train for strength are usually aiming to build a bigger physique and bigger muscles. In case of such goals, it is certainly a good idea to reach for BCAA preparations, consisting of selected amino acids. Although some people claim that they do not work at all, this is not true. The amino acids that make up proteins will always support bodybuilding by building muscle mass, as they are the absolute most important building blocks for muscles. Optionally, BCAAs can simply be replaced with a protein supplement. It generally consists of all amino acids. It is such a substitute for normal food – meat, dairy and eggs.
There are also special supplements for athletes helping those who want to gain weight, but due to genetic reasons manifesting in an ultra-fast metabolism are unable to gain weight, even while following a high-calorie diet. These products are gainers. These are products consisting of all macronutrients, in which however carbohydrates predominate, supplemented mainly with valuable protein. If you want to buy such a gainer, it is also worth looking at whether its composition contains some additional nutrients. This is because it is worth using products that are enriched with vitamins and minerals.
And what to do if your goal is completely different, which is the desire to quickly lose body fat? You can use various types of fat burners when reducing. Some of them are fully natural products, based primarily on caffeine and green tea extract.
