If you eat right and train hard, chances are you’re interested in gaining muscle and strength as fast as humanly possible.
To gain muscle as quickly as possible, you really need to do just three simple things:
- Consume enough protein
- Eat more calories than your burn
- Follow a proper resistance-training program the utilizes the principles of progressive overload
Do these three things for long enough, and you will build muscle.
But, let’s say that you’re already doing these three things, and that you’re not satisfied with the level of progress you’ve made thus far. Let’s say that you’re looking for something to take your results to the next level.
That’s where natural muscle builders come into play.
“Muscle builders” are all natural supplements that help you build muscle through a variety of means including (but not limited to):
- increasing protein synthesis
- reducing muscle protein breakdown
- enhancing your ability to perform during training
Now, there are a lot of junk products on the market claiming to help you build muscle, when it reality they’re not much more than an overpriced placebo. That said, let’s look at some of the best supplements to help you build muscle and strength.
Best Supplements to Gain Muscle Mass
The granddaddy of all muscle builders, creatine is the most popular and successful bodybuilding supplement of all time, and for good reason — it flat out works.
Creatine enhances ATP production in the body as well as cellular hydration and has been noted in hundreds of studies to improve strength, power, athletic performance and lean mass gains.
Anyone who is serious about their training and building muscle as fast as possible should be supplementing with creatine. It’s cheap, effective, and above all safe.
Killer Labz Killatine is a flavorless creatine powder containing 3 different types of creatine and delivering 60 servings! Mix it into your pre workout serving of Destroyer or your post workout protein shake of Predator Pro.
Epicatechin is an incredibly intriguing under-the-radar natural muscle builder. It’s a natural phenol and antioxidant found in cocoa, tea, apples, and berries.
Regarding muscle building, epicatechin has been noted to:
- Decreases myostatin (protein that inhibits muscle cell growth and differentiation)
- Increases follistatin (glycoprotein released in response to muscle damage that promotes cell growth)
- Increases nitric oxide production for greater vascularity, blood flow and endurance
- Improves insulin sensitivity, regulating blood sugar levels and stimulating muscle protein synthesis
But the benefits of epicatechin don’t end there, additional research notes that the polyphenol also supports brain and heart health due to its natural antioxidant properties.
There’s one issue with epicatechin though — poor bioavailability, meaning that when taken on its own, our bodies break the molecule down before it can do any of its muscle-boosting effects.
To improve bioavailability and effectiveness, Killer Labz combines epicatechin with our novel DecaSorb Technology to unlock the true potential of this novel all natural muscle builder in Epistrol.
Building muscle requires years and years of diligent, consistent effort for both diet and training. WIthout those two, all the supplements in the world won’t do a lick of good. Provided you have those two things under control, the right supplements can help accelerate your muscle mass gains and give you the killer body you’ve always wanted.
