Can a 55kg bodybuilding beginner take mega mass or supermass.And what about casilan 90. When should supplements be taken( after or before workouts)?

Be careful!: Be careful! dietary supplements are not well regulated. Unlike prescription and over the counter drugs, which are regulated by the fda, supplements are not. The ingredient list is not always accurate, and may contain harmful ingredients. Drugs have to have scientific evidence of safety and effectiveness, but even they can have side effects. Supplements do not have such safeguards. ...Read more

What does creatine do?Shud i take it b4 or after my workout.I've also tried some supplements lyk mass gainers and whey proteins.Which shud i take when

Gain muscle mass: A single 5 g (5000 mg) oral dose in healthy adults results in a peak plasma creatine level of approximately 120 mg/l at 1–2 hours post-ingestion. Creatine has a fairly short elimination half-life, averaging just less than 3 hours, so to maintain an elevated plasma level it would be necessary to take small oral doses every 3–6 hours throughout the day. Follow directions! ...Read more

What does it mean when you feel jittery when you take pre and post workout supplements? Is it safe if you are sensitive to caffeine?

Depends on supp.: There are many pre and post workout supplements. I imagine many of the pre-workout supplements contain caffeine and thus are best avoided if you are sensitive to caffeine; but there are probably some that don't have caffeine so check them out. Generally if you are jittery after any supplement i would take it as a sign that it is not a good fit for you and you should find one that does not do this! ...Read more
