Bodybuilding Supplements - Creatine, Muscle Meals, and Ribose

There are lists of bodybuilding supplements and products to help bodybuilders gain pure, lean muscles, strength, and size. Bodybuilding supplements include creatine, andro, DHEA, ribose, tribulus, and glutamine, just to name a few. It is common knowledge that combining (know as stacking) several types of these bodybuilding supplements will deliver much better results. In these cases, the supplements complement each other, and enhances your gains.

First discovered in 1832, Creatine Monohydrate is one of the best bodybuilding supplements you can get, and its 100% legal! Three amino acids combine to make creatine - Arginine, Glycine, and Methionine. About 95% of creatine in your body is stored in your muscles. Creatine increases your energy levels, volumizes your muscles (adds size), buffers lactic acid buildup (delays lactic acid buildup somewhat during workouts), and enhances protien synthesis.

There are two ways or phases of taking creatine as a bodybuilding supplement - loading phases, and maintenance phase. During the loading phase, you should take 20 to 30 grams everyday for the first week. Taking about 5 grams every time, this translates to taking creatine about 4 to 5 times a day (grape juice works well). After the loading phase, you take 5 to 10 grams of creatine regularly. Although loading does help you gain mass quicker, however, research has shown that after about four weeks, the results of loading creatine and the results of taking a constant does of creatine are leveled. So if you're in a hurry to gain some weight, load, if not, then just take it regularly without loading.

When it comes to these types of bodybuilding supplements, many people ask when is the best time to take the supplements. For creatine, this very much depends on what form of creatine you are taking - whether it is liquid creatine, or powder creatine. Powder creatine takes the body about 1 to 1.5 hours to absorb into the blood stream, and then the excess creatine is excreeted from the body after about 1.5 hours. Since you want to take creaine before workouts, its a good idea to take it about an hour before you hit the gym. This gives you enough time to absorb the creatine into the blood stream. Doing this, you ensure there's plenty of creatine to go around during and after your workouts.

Creatine in a liquid form absorbs faster, so it is recommended that you take it about 20 to 30 minutes before your workout.

Finally, there's the issue of cycling bodybuilding supplements. Two ways for creatine: 1) you load for a week, and go on maintenance for six weeks, then take couple of weeks off, and then repeat the cycle; or 2) maintain a regular intake of creatine.
