THE 5 BEST SUPPLEMENTS I USE TO GROW MUSCLE AND GET RID OF LOVE HANDLES.

Hey, first off let me start by saying supplements are just that... Supplements. So, I always make sure to have my nutrition totally on par and get plenty of real food before I reach for supplements. Of course, I also make sure I have a proper workout plan in place too! Ok enough preaching. Let’s get to it.

Here are 5 supplements I personally use that I believe has helped me. Especially since I am now 48. I make sure to cover all my bases. The first one the list is what I take to lose fat around the love handles and muffin top area. The last 4 are more for muscle growth! OK here we go!



1.Belly Fat burner to get rid of love handles:


When I notice I am getting a little too much belly fat around the muffin top area. This is my go-to. Not only do those love handles look unsightly, but the visceral fat stored on the back side of the torso near the kidneys can actually cause kidney problems if nothing is done. There are plenty of foods I eat that help with this, but that is not what this article is about. You want to know what supplements I take to build muscle and burn fat. So here is what I take to get rid of the love handles which is great for men or women.


1.I take Okinawa Flat Belly Tonic


The Okinawa Flat Belly Tonic is a new one-of-a-kind weight loss “tonic” supplement. It helps men and women burn fat fast using a simple 20-second Japanese tonic. This combined with proper sweaty workouts, and clean nutrition I am unstoppable . The fat just melts right off! I Love it.


I have been recommending this to my clients, along with High Intensity Interval Training. When you have a chance check your their body transformations. Their pictures say it all! I do not take very many supplements, but this one that I do really find helps me personally. Of course there is more to burning fat than just this. Being in a calorie defecit is must for losing weight too. But this is great start.

Ok now for muscle supplements! The first one is Fish oil . Natures Bounty 1200 mg.

Ok first off, Omega-3 has incredible health benefits. It helps promote heathy brain function. affects energy levels, increases mental alertness, improves skin and nails, and gives you a better metabolism, and of course helps with losing belly fat. So, I make sure to get real fish in my meals 2 times a week , and at least 1200 mg of fish oil every day!

You could almost put say this supplement is a power supplement. It has everything the body needs to function at optimal levels. Of course, I have to stress that it would be best get plenty of omeg-3 from real foods too! For example, Henry Cavill the actor who starred in the recent superman movies would eat 5000 calories a day! So ya, getting real food in is important in building muscle!

3. Kaizin Protein Powder from New Zealand.


This protein Powder is organic and responsibly grown. It is clean, low in sugar and a great price too. I also love the taste which is nice bonus. I trust it and have taken this along time. Usually once a day in my post-workout protein shakes. Whey protein is a complete protein which is essential to building new muscle tissue.

The more muscle you have- the more metabolic you will be! The higher the metabolism-the more calories you burn! So, basically the more muscle you have , the less fat you have. So that is how to get rid of love handles and the extra visceral fat around the organs!

Also, the main reason I like it is the lab test tool that comes with it. A independent company has online service that lets you check the contents online. So it is nice to have that reassurance it is a clean product.

4. Gold Series PVL PVL EAA + BCAA COMPLETE | Pre, Intra or Post Workout

I usually take this before a workout. These branch chain amino acid supplements can be used as fuel to improve performance when taken before exercise. This effect is in addition to their anabolic and metabolic properties that appears to occur directly in the muscle. Studies have also shown a reduction on D.O.MS:Delayed Onset of Muscle Soreness.


It has also been shown that BCAAS taken before exercises improve muscle recovery as well! So yes, I have trained hard with and without BCAA’s and I can say that I have personally noticed a huge difference in performance, recovery, muscle soreness and muscle growth!


There are other BCAA’s in the market, but this brand tastes great, and I trust it.


QUICK SUMMARY OF BENEFITS:

  • COMPLETE 10 EAA FORMULA | EAAs (essential amino acids) are nine amino acids (including the three BCAAs and added L-Arginine) necessary for greater protein synthesis

  • MUSCLE GROWTH AND RECOVERY | Better than BCAAs alone, EAA + BCAA — the combination has been shown to be 50% better at delivering muscle protein synthesis vs BCAAs alone.

  • BETTER THAN BCAA ALONE | Get the missing amino acids in this easy-to-digest form—ones not included in your regular BCAA supplement. BCAAs get recovery started, but all EAAs need to be present for optimal muscle recovery effectiveness.

  • GREAT ABSORPTION | University studies show that by adding a 100% dose of BioPerine, amino acid uptake can be boosted by 25 to 32%. EAA+BCAA Complete contains a 100% full dose!

  • COMPLETE PERFORMANCE | B vitamins (energy), five key electrolytes (hydration/performance) and the Nootropic - Lion's Mane (focus), combine to create the most complete Amino Acid formula that exists today!

5. Creatine Monohydrate by Kaizen Naturals



Now Creatine is a double edge sword. What I mean by that is: It is amazing at helping punch out a few more reps than normal. If you have never taken it before then you will be pleasantly surprises and will definitely feel the effects almost instantly in your first workout. Your muscles will swell. The blood flows more and the onset of the burn will be delayed. You can punch out more reps than before. It is quite cool thing to see if you have never taken it before. Of course, this will help you build muscle faster.


How creatine works. it goes directly into the muscle and is easily accessed when it is time recruit muscle fibers and movement. It takes several weeks to fully load the muscles. It does tend to dehydrate you so, you will need to be taking tons of extra water.


The other side of the coin is your body will get use to it eventually. Kind of the same way caffeine works in the sense that it loses it potency over time. So will take it for few months, then stay off it for few months, then go back on.

But staying on it all year round is not a good idea as you body won’t get the same kick.

Any ways. The brand I really like is


I trust Kaizen, and they have an independent online lab test. So, you can check the ingredients and make sure they are no toxins or other nasty stuff that might be in other less reputable brands!
