Many teens don’t fully understand what the supplement or supplements they are taking does and frequently take something based on what they heard and not on actual facts.
It is important to research and fully understand everything about the supplement you are considering taking in order to decide if it is right for you. I will be describing the most popular supplements to help inform you and aid you on your supplement decisions.
Creatine is one of the most popular supplements that is used by professional athletes, amateur athletes, and anyone else trying to gain bulk and strength fast. Creatine is a natural component of skeletal muscle and is transported to the body’s muscles in order to increase energy.
Creatine increases ATP and how often it can be recycled. In other words it increases how long the muscles can continue exerting maximum force then later increasing growth. However, some people do not respond to creatine use in the same way.
Glutamine is one of the most abundant and essential amino acids in the body and helps several processes function properly. It boosts the immune system, is a protein synthesizer, and speeds up muscle recovery.
These effects can be very beneficial
especially when following a rigorous workout routine. Studies have shown that supplementing with glutamine can in some ways be the best way to reach peak performance.
When training intensely glutamine deficiencies can occur which is why supplementing with glutamine is very important. There are no side effects so it is 100% safe. In my opinion glutamine is a good supplement and should be considered by anyone.
