Most people are under the misconception that to gain lean muscle mass, bodybuilding supplements are essential. Please remember that supplements are only additions to an already well-planned nutrition diet and training program. Bodybuilding Nutrition and training are the two indispensable components of any bodybuilding program. Once your diet plan and training schedule are in place, then you can think of body building supplements to further your aim. Supplements only work when your diet and your training program are optimal.
Nutritional supplements are necessary to compensate for any nutritional deficiencies. The increased physical activity because of your new exercise program will make your body demand more vitamins and minerals. Even a marginal nutrient deficiency can sabotage muscle growth. We obviously cannot rely solely on food alone to provide us with all the vitamins and minerals that our body needs. This is more so, because the processing of foods before they get to the supermarket, cooking, air, and even light would have already robbed the food of most of the vitamins. If you are deficient in one or more nutrients your body may not be able to build muscle and burn fat properly.
