Bodybuilders and Livestock: Both want GAINS!

Bodybuilders have often turned to the livestock supplement regimens to decrease fat and increase muscle. Livestock operations have become fairly effecient in doing this. Use of things like Trenbolone and Clenbuterol in cattle was the norm for many years. Horse racing has used natural supplements like Gamma Oryzanol and Creatine. As well as not so legal steroids and all forms of performance enhancing drugs.

Well here's a natural stack you can use that also used to muscle up livestock.

From Muscle and Fitness
"This unique amino acid (also called trimethylglycine) derived from beets aids joint and liver repair, joint building, and liver protection. Studies show that it boosts strength and power, increases growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) levels, and even acts like the body's own production of creatine. Research suggests that it may also support faster recovery from injury and inflammation."

DOSAGE: l,500-3,000 mg with meals twice per day. These doses can also be taken pre and post-workout instead of with meals.

According to Nutrabio
"Lysine is an essential amino acid, which means your body cannot manufacture it so it must be obtained through the diet or by supplementation. Lysine is an essential component of all proteins and works with other essential amino acids to maintain growth, lean body mass, and the body's store of nitrogen.

Lysine acts as a precursor for several other amino acids, including L-Citrulline (needed for normal protein metabolism) and L-carnitine (needed for fat metabolism). Lysine is crucial for the formation of collagen, a major part of the body's connective tissues and appears to help the body absorb and conserve calcium and may reduce its excretion.

Lysine contributes to energy production when converted to acetyl coenzyme A, one of the principal fuels for the Krebs cycle. Lysine is needed for growth and to help maintain nitrogen balance in the body. L-lysine has many other functions in the body because it is incorporated into many proteins, which are used by the body for a variety of purposes. Lysine supports a healthy immune system."

Dosage: 1,000-3,000 mg with meals
