5 February 2016 No comments

Bodybuilding is a sport that most people think is for men only. But it is also a sport for women and is rapidly growing in popularity. When women become bodybuilders, they usually don't have the same goals as men. Often, they want to become a certain size, build strength and confidence and then build muscle.

The supplements that female bodybuilders use are also different from the ones that men utilize. For example, women don't use testosterone boosters because they can lead to more body hair growth and a deeper voice.Here are some of the best supplements for women bodybuilders.

Vitamin B

Vitamin B is helpful in the metabolism of protein, fats and carbohydrates. Also, these vitamins help keep skin, hair and eyes healthy.

In particular, Vitamin B6 encourages the proper use of carbohydrates by the body. Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) leads to "hard muscles." Vitamin B3 enhances overall metabolism and the release of energy. Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) is also involved in the production of energy.

Creatine

Creatine is also used to enhance the production of energy. But it is important to keep in mind that there can be side effects such as muscle cramps, dehydration, loose bowel movements and irritated stomach. There is, however, a liquid form of creatine that has fewer side effects.

Essential Fatty Acids

Essential fatty acids, also known as EFAs, provide several benefits to female bodybuilders. They improve the movement of oxygen through the bloodstream. They also produce more energy and have a calming effect that helps to keep the mood steady. EFAs also reduce water retention and transport cholesterol and triglycerides through the bloodstream. The best sources of essential fatty acids are plant oils and fish.

You can get calcium from supplements that can be bought in the marketplace or you can eat broccoli, seaweeds and dairy products. All of these foods are terrific natural sources of calcium.

Meal Replacement Products (MRPs)
