Many today claim that physical appearance is very important. We will agree with that statement. Physical appearance is really important, whether it's health (we will be guided by the old "in a healthy body, healthy mind"), certain advantages when finding a partner or even when hiring or simply for personal satisfaction, appearance is very important today, both women and men. Gyms and fitness centers are fuller than ever, people are constantly coming in with the intention of achieving their goal, that is, striving for an "ideal body".
However, some of us have some difficulty building a healthy and strong body. Of course, we mean that we adhere to healthy habits, while thinking about training and food.
Given that we are all individuals and that no one's body is identical, it is very difficult to classify someone into a certain body group. But still, we can perform a simple grouping into ectomorphs, mesomorphs, and endomorphs. While ectomorphs and mesomorphs do not have major problems with excess weight, endomorphs "suffer" with this problem. We often hear that people who are overweight say that they do not eat very little or at all. That is a mistake. The body has a certain defense mechanism and when we do not get enough food, our body activates this defense mechanism and thus the weight is not lost. In fact, not only do we not lose weight and fat deposits, but in this way our immunity drops because we do not get the necessary macro and micronutrients, or proteins, carbohydrates, fats, and vitamins and minerals that are essential for our body.
Food is often called the "enemy" in achieving our goal of a healthier, more beautiful and stronger body. That is wrong. Food is our ally in this process. In addition to food, we have another strong ally, and that is dietary supplements, ie supplements . Since it is very difficult, not to say impossible, to get all the nutrients we need exclusively from food, supplementation plays a huge role, not only to get a "sculpted" body, but also in our health. Since this article is about preserving muscle and losing fat, we will focus on some of the most important supplements that will help us with that.
Let's go in order. If we want to lose extra pounds, it means that we want to get rid of fat deposits on our body, but not the muscles that we have painstakingly acquired. Proteins will play the biggest role in preserving muscles, but also other functions of the body. Proteins are essential elements necessary for the growth and regeneration, good functioning and structure of all living cells. When we eat foods that contain protein, digestive juices in the stomach and intestines are secreted. They break down proteins into basic units, called amino acids. Amino acids are then reconnected to produce the proteins the body needs. Depending on which amino acids are combined, protein molecules produce enzymes, hormones, muscles, organs and many other tissues in our body. However, it is difficult to get enough protein and amino acids from food alone. Also, there is another important thing, and that is the speed of absorption, or the speed at which our body absorbs these elements. It takes a long time for proteins to be broken down when we ingest them through food or solid meals. That is why world companies have developed whey protein, which is characterized by rapid absorption. After training, our body needs some quick source of protein, since muscle fibers are broken by exercise, and whey is the best source of protein after training. Proteins are usually used to recover and build muscle, but the formula offered by Lean Whey of the American company Optimum Nutrition offers more than that.
Lean Whey is a high-protein shake that will help you preserve muscle, but also lose fat deposits. In addition to 20 grams of high-quality protein that is easily and quickly absorbed, Lean Whey also contains ingredients that speed up our metabolism and thus help melting fat. These are L-Carnitine, CLA (conjugated linolenic acid), and green tea extract. Also, this protein contains only 98 calories and less than one gram of fat.
Whenever weight loss is mentioned, L-Carnitine is unavoidable. What exactly is L-Carnitine? L-Carnitine is a derivative, ie. a product derived from the amino acids lysine and methionine. It got its name due to the fact that it was first discovered in meat (1905). Under normal conditions, the human body produces sufficient amounts of L-carnitine, but in some conditions the body cannot produce enough of it, so it should be taken from the outside. When we train, the supply of L-Carnitine produced in the liver and kidneys is not enough, so we need to ingest it through supplements. L-Carnitine is transported to tissues that use fatty acids as a source of energy, and these are primarily the heart muscle and skeletal muscle. The very process of using fat as an energy source will help us lose weight, since accumulated fat is used as an energy source and thus burns. However, that's not all, because L-Carnitine creates a suitable environment for building and maintaining muscle mass, because increased metabolism of fatty acids leads to glycogen savings, which is very important since branched-chain amino acids
(L-Leucine, L -Isoleucine, L-Valine) in the absence of glucose convert to pyruvate. So if you want a sculpted body, don’t bypass L-Carnitine. My recommendation would be L-Carnitine 1500 American company ProSupps .
Losing weight and maintaining muscle mass are two related processes. As we said before, amino acids play a key role in everything. Our body is like a car. The car consumes fuel while running. Our body also consumes "fuel" while we train. Therefore, it is necessary to supply him with adequate nutrients during training. The American company BSN has devised a great formula found in their product called Amino X . Amino X contains a quality anabolic mixture, which prevents catabolism (muscle fiber breakdown), and takes care of muscle regeneration and growth. It is the first instant effervescent amino acid product with BCAA formula in the world. By using this product with amino acids, BCAAs, EAAs (essential amino acids), vitamin D and citrulline malate, the effects will be better, faster and greater. Vitamin D in this product has numerous anabolic functions, while citrulline malate helps in the production of nitric oxide. Thus, Amino X helps in protein synthesis and anabolism,
re-synthesis of glycogen, prevents muscle catabolism, improves muscle endurance and allows faster regeneration after training. Simply put, Amino X> is the right choice for you.
The name alone says enough, doesn't it? However, we will elaborate a little more on this type of supplement. Fat burners are products that speed up metabolism and help control appetite. I will venture to say that these are the two most important items when losing weight. Also, these products are thermogenic, and can slightly raise your body temperature during training, which further affects calorie burning and fat loss. The active ingredients of the fat burner are L-Carnitine, caffeine, green tea extract, green coffee extract, garcinia cambodgia (Indian fruit), CLA (conjugated linolenic acid), 5-HTP which increases sertonine levels and regulates appetite and regulates appetite and DGHA, a hormone secreted from the adrenal gland and brain, and leads to the secretion of androgens and estrogens, respectively male and female hormones. The American company Nutrex has produced one of the strongest fat burners. Lipo-6 Black Ultra Concentrate contains all the listed ingredients in just one fast-absorbing liquid capsule. By using Lipo-6 Black UC you will speed up your metabolism, it will help you regulate your appetite, and a dose of 250mg of caffeine will provide you with much-needed energy for training.
Finally, I will point out that all the products listed in the text do not contain doping, have passed rigorous controls and if used in accordance with the instructions for use, are safe for consumption and will not produce side effects and side effects. Lipo-6 Black Ultra Concentrate capsules are not of animal origin, so they can be used by vegetarians as well.
