If you pay heed to the need of the body at the time when you’re doing serious lifts, you know how important supplementation is. But sometimes, supplements are taken in a wrong sense. “Supplementation ruins a body” is not always a true statement because if they are taken with advice from an expert, then it can actually get you both- power and performance. So here are few supplements listed below, which can act as your body saver at the times of strict budgets
The benefits of BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine) can be endlessly written about. In short, it promotes protein synthesis and aids in muscle recovery. The good 2:1:1 BCAA powder will cost you somewhere between Rs. 1500- 2000 for 300-345grams.
Creatine is just as essential as BCAA for recovery from muscle fatigue. You can choose between Creatine Monohydrate and Micronized. A 300- 400 gram jar of branded Creatine will cost you nothing more than Rs. 1000, depending on the brand you choose.
One of the most underrated supplement, fish oil contains Omega 3 Fatty Acids that is one of the most important nutrient for your body. Fish oil is high in the dosage of EPA and DHA reduces muscle soreness and swelling from intense workouts.
Whey Protein ( No flavour )
Raw whey is actually the base of all hugely marketed protein powders. Brands buy raw protein from the manufacturers, make their own blend, slap their ambassador’s sticker on the jar and sell it for a bomb. A kilogram of raw whey, with a serving of 20-22grams of protein per scoop will cost you a mere Rs. 900-1000, unflavored. While raw flavoured will cost you nothing more than Rs. 1100-1200.
