How to Choose the Best Supplements for Muscle Gain

How to Choose the Best Supplements for Muscle Gain

Maintaining a clean, healthy diet and consistently working out are the key to building lean muscle. But if you want to maximise your gains, doing these might not be enough— which is why professional athletes and bodybuilders take supplements to support their training.

But with so many options available, how can you choose the best supplements for muscle gain?

Choosing the Best Supplements for Muscle Gain

Here are some things to take into consideration to help you narrow down your supplement choices.

Fitness and Performance Goal

There are a lot of supplements available to support different bodybuilding goals, but you have to identify yours to make it easier to choose. If you need to lose fat, look for fat-burners and carb-blockers. If you're aiming to build muscles, opt for protein powders, creatine and testosterone boosters. Hoping for a better performance during your workout? Energy boosters and protein will be the best option.

Price & Quality

Typically, a cheap supplement equals low-quality ingredients and a poor manufacturing process. Don't be afraid to splurge a bit for premium-quality products, but don't choose a supplement based on its price alone, either. Quality should still be the main factor to consider.

The best way to go about this is to research, check out online product reviews and testimonials, and always read the labels. One pro-tip for recognising high-quality supplements: they tend to use just a few ingredients and avoid added fillers, preservatives, and sweeteners. 

Taste

No matter how amazingly effective and high-quality a supplement is, what good is it if it tastes horrible? Feels like a waste of money if you wouldn't dare drink it again after the first sip. There are plenty of sports nutrition suppliers like MAX's offering great-tasting gym supplements with quick mixability and no aftertaste.

Protein

Oh, the undisputed king of supplements! When it comes to muscle growth, amping up your protein intake is a must. But its benefits aren't limited to maximum gains; thanks to its properties, protein can also help burn unwanted fat and suppress appetite.

If you're planning on taking mass gainers, fat burners, recovery powders, or meal replacements, look for a product with a good protein range per serving, and what sources of protein they contain.

Approved by Your Physician

This consideration especially applies to those with existing medical conditions or who are taking medication. Some supplements may interfere with medicines or ailments, so it pays to talk to your doctor or dietitian first.

Recommended Supplements for Muscle Gains

With the general considerations nailed down, here's a list of supplements that we recommend for epic muscle gains:

  1. Whey Protein
  2. Glutamine
  3. BCAAs
  4. Creatine
  5. Vitamins & Minerals

Why these five? We have a comprehensive explanation for each in our article on supplements for epic muscle growth.

Don't Forget What's Important

The foundation of any muscle-building goal is still proper nutrition and dedicated training, but if you're wondering how supplements help you build muscle quicker, you can find out and more in our guide on understanding supplements for bodybuilding and muscle growth.
