No.. Taking a supplement is not even necessary for a muscle building. As we all know, taking supplements for the muscle building has become a trend. Everyone know our site Healthy lifestyle inspires all of you to live a healthy and natural life. That's why today we will talk about natural dietary supplements.
Taking supplements depends on our lifestyle routine, our profession and on our body. If we consume natural healthy food then we do not have to take supplements.
Supplements are essential for those who are athletes or people who cannot get nutrition in abundance because of their busy routine.
These supplements are highly processed and give to our body extra Vitamins, Protein, Minerals, amino acid & Fats as well. These are not medicines but found in the form of powder, capsules gelcaps and many forms. In the market there are many unhealthy and low quality are also available which can harm our health. We should never take any supplement by ourselves, we should always take supplements provided by nutrition or gym trainer.
There are many supplements that works-

• Energy Drinks
There are many stimulant present in energy drinks. Caffeine and sugar is also present in many energy drinks which can cause heart problems and extra sugar can lead to weight gain.
• Nitric oxide
This supplement intake can improve the flow of blood in our body and relax the muscles stiffness but nitric oxide is too risky to intake it can cause diarrohea and stomach problems.
• Beta alanine
It is basically a amino acid which reducing fatigue in muscles increase carnosine in the muscles. Excess of beta alanine can cause paresthesia which is not a serious problem.
And many more supplements like vitamin C supplement, growth hormone, creatine etc.
