These supplements heighten
the body’s ability to drive protein, creatine and carbohydrates into the muscle tissue, optimizing muscle mass
and volume. Diabetics using insulin should consult their physician before using any of these supplements. Many of these nutrients,
if not sold individually, will be mixed with creatine to maximize the absorption of the creatine.
Alpha-Lipoic acid promotes
insulin sensitivity. This increases mass-building by allowing the muscles to take in more protein.
This amazing nutrient
actually stimulates the pancreas to produce insulin. It is often supplemented in the form of chromium picolinate, but occurs
naturally in many green, leafy vegetables.
