building supplements for women
past three decades has seen great increases in women's interest
in sports and other athletic activities. Is what's good for the
gander equally good for the goose?
about muscle-building and recovery supplements for women? I've heard
that research shows that supplements designed for men are of little
value to women.
for hormonal effects, the biochemistry of muscle building and
recovery is identical for men and women. Such things as amino
acids, GH releasers, pyruvate, creatine (et cetera) all work the
same for men and women.
even supplements that increase testosterone or prevent its conversion
to estrogen -- and some other androgenic steroids -- will also
help women build muscle. Of course, they also tend to create a
more masculine appearance in other ways as well, some of which
may be unwanted.
there any supplements or vitamins/minerals that will aid women in
boosting strength, losing weight, and increasing recovery time?
the same ones that work for men. We can't think of any that would
be special for women.
