When on low-carb diets whey can function as an alternate source of energy, sparing hard-earned muscle protein and glutamine stores within the body.

As with creatine, the best time to take your protein supplement is postworkout. As we said before, it’s good to combine your protein with some form of carbohydrate for maximum results.

Combine the powder with some eggs, low-fat milk, ice cream, and olive oil. You can also add in some fruit for flavor.

Nitric Oxide

Another powerful supplement you can take as part of your body building program is nitric oxide. Many body builders take nitric oxide for a variety of reasons.

Nitric Oxide, a key molecule manufactured by the body, causes vasodilation [an expansion of the internal diameter of blood vessels], which in turn leads to increased blood flow, oxygen transport, delivery of nutrients to skeletal muscle and a reduction in blood pressure.

Nitric oxide promotes extended ability to life weights.
