Which muscle building supplement is best for building muscle?
The best muscle boosting supplements are mostly designed to improve the strength and endurance of the muscles that use them, but not necessarily the most effective ones, according to a new study published in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience.
These include supplements designed to boost the capacity for muscle contraction, such as whey, which has shown promise in treating muscle fatigue and soreness.
Another is an amino acid supplement called L-tyrosine, which stimulates protein synthesis, which may help reduce the risk of muscle loss from overtraining, says the study, co-authored by postdoctoral researcher Michael M. Sperling at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
The study, which used data from a sample of 1,100 volunteers aged 21 to 50, showed that there were clear differences in the effects of whey and l-tyroine supplements on muscle strength and power.
For the subjects in the whey group, whey supplementation increased muscle strength, while l-Tyrosine supplementation increased power, the researchers found.
The authors also found that whey supplemented participants showed greater muscle strength in a variety of muscle groups.
In addition, the supplements showed a strong effect on strength and muscle mass in the lower body, including the upper and lower abdominals, although there was no effect on the lower and upper back.
They also found a difference in the amount of creatine they produced compared to creatine in a placebo group.
“We’re seeing that wheys are actually able to help people build muscle and help them maintain muscle mass,” said Sperlings.
“This is very exciting, because we don’t know exactly how creatine helps the muscles, and we don
