Is There a "Best Supplement"?

best supplements

Whew! This is a hard question to answer.

I mean there are literally hundreds of different kinds of supplements you can buy for all kinds of purposes. However, since we are concerned with building muscle supplements, we'll stick to these.

Over the years, I've tried all kinds of supplements in the hopes of adding that extra edge to my strength and gain a little more muscle size.

You see, over the years, I've tried so many supplements hoping to find the the best one and most have been a big let down. There is just way too many supplements floating around the market today that simply don't work. The only thing these supplements are meant to do is take the money right out of your pockets.

What I can tell you is what I've learned from personal experience.

For example, glutamine will not have an immediate effect on your strength levels but over the long term, this supplement can make all the difference in the world and might be the most effective supplement going.

But really, right now, you want to know what the best muscle building supplement is and what can produce the fastest and quickest results.

Well, I'm going to give you my honest opinion and one that has been tried and tested by yours truly. By far, the best muscle building supplement to ever come out that produces the fastest and most effective results is creatine.

Well, I've tried alot of creatine brands with mixed results. Now, the best creatine product I have tried to date that has produced the most dramatic gains in strength is what I call the "third generation" creatine products. These products are creatine esters such as di and tri creatine malates. I have no doubt that these products can be considered the best building muscle supplements on the market today.

These supplements have proved to be the most effective in producing:

-Strength gain;

-Weight gain;

Which one is the best? Currently, I'm using Dymatize Nutrition's Expand. This is the best creatine product I have used to date and is one I have no problem recommending. For a complete review and breakdown of the best creatine products going - You might want to check out this article:

This article will detail, what I think are the best creatine supplements going, there pro's and con's as well as which brand is best (in my opinion of course).

So there you go, in my opinion, the best muscle building supplement on the market today is Dymatize Nutrition's Xpand. In terms of it's effectiveness, it's top rated and I highly recommend it. Please see the above noted article for it's results and effectiveness for building muscle and strength.
