In s with recreational and competitive bodybuilding becoming increasingly popular Irvin P. Johnson began to popularize and market egg-based protein powders marketed specifically at bodybuilders and physical athletes. The s and s marked a dramatic increase in the growth of the bodybuilding supplement industry, fueled by widespread use of modern marketing techniques and a marked increase in recreational bodybuilding.
Under DSHEA, responsibility for determining the safety of the dietary supplements changed from government to the manufacturer and supplements no longer required approval from the U. Since that time manufacturers did not have to provide FDA with the evidence to substantiate safety or effectiveness unless a new dietary ingredient was added. It is widely believed that the DSHEA further consolidated the position of the supplement industry and lead to additional product sales.
While many of the claims are based on scientifically based physiological or biochemical processes, their use in bodybuilding parlance is often heavily colored by bodybuilding lore and industry marketing and as such may deviate considerably from traditional scientific usages of the terms. In addition, ingredients listed have been found at times to be different from the contents. In , Consumer Reports reported unsafe levels of arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury in several of the protein powders that were tested.
In the United States, the manufacturers of dietary supplements do not need to provide the Food and Drug Administration with evidence of product safety prior to marketing. In a CBC investigative report found that protein spiking the addition of amino acid filler to manipulate analysis was not uncommon,  however many of the companies involved challenged these claims.
The US FDA reports 50, health problems a year due to dietary supplements  and these often involve bodybuilding supplements. In addition to being potentially harmful, some have argued that there is little evidence to indicate any benefit to using bodybuilding protein or amino acid supplements.
The muscle mass increase was statistically significant but modest - averaging 0. Bodybuilders may supplement their diets with protein for reasons of convenience, lower cost relative to meat and fish products , ease of preparation, and to avoid the concurrent consumption of carbohydrates and fats. In addition, some argue that bodybuilders, by virtue of their unique training and goals, require higher-than-average quantities of protein to support maximal muscle growth;        however there is no scientific consensus for bodybuilders to consume more protein than the recommended dietary allowance.
Protein powders are the most popular and may have flavoring added for palatability. The powder is usually mixed with water, milk or fruit juice and is generally consumed immediately before and after exercising or in place of a meal. The sources of protein are as follows and differ in protein quality depending on their amino acid profile and digestibility:. Some nutritionists claim that osteoporosis may occur from excessive protein intake because protein can put pressure on the kidneys and lead to bone loss due to calcium leaching.
Some bodybuilders believe that amino acid supplements may benefit muscle development, but consumption of such supplements is unnecessary in a diet that already includes adequate protein intake. Prohormones are precursors to hormones and are most typically sold to bodybuilders as a precursor to the natural hormone testosterone. This conversion requires naturally occurring enzymes in the body.
Side effects are not uncommon, as prohormones can also convert further into DHT and estrogen. To deal with this, many supplements also have aromatase inhibitors and DHT blockers such as chrysin and 4-androstene-3,6,trione. To date most prohormone products have not been thoroughly studied, and the health effects of prolonged use are unknown. Although initially available over the counter, their purchase was made illegal without a prescription in the US in , and they hold similar status in many other countries.
They remain legal, however, in the United Kingdom and the wider European Union. Their use is prohibited by most sporting bodies. Creatine is an organic acid naturally occurring in the body that supplies energy to muscle cells for short bursts of energy as required in lifting weights via creatine phosphate replenishment of ATP.
A number of scientific studies have shown that creatine can improve strength,  energy,  muscle mass, and recovery times. In addition, recent studies have also shown that creatine improves brain function.
Creatine increases what is known as cell volumization by drawing water into muscle cells, making them larger. Creatine is sold in a variety of forms, including creatine monohydrate and creatine ethyl ester , amongst others. Though all types of creatine are sold for the same purposes, there are subtle differences between them, such as price and necessary dosage. Creatine monohydrate is regarded as a necessity by most bodybuilders.
Creatine monohydrate is the most cost-effective dietary supplement in terms of muscle size and strength gains. Things like candy or cookies, obviously, would have a much larger effect. Just make sure you check the nutrition information for anything that you put in there.

Tastes as good as shakeology and much less expensive. Large Tub Verified Purchase. I used to love this protein drink! About 2 years ago I suddenly had a bunch of medical conditions with which I developed a lot of food intolerances. This was one thing I could drink, and have been drinking it ever since. Recently they changed their formula now to FDA approved organic and "great new taste" except that it tastes horrible now and it's not as healthy.
It doesn't include the vitamins and minerals that it did before, it contains less servings per container and is more expensive. I just received my first order of it through subscribe and save, and I'm super disappointed. Why they can't ever leave a good thing alone is beyond me In 6 months, they increased price, decreased volume and changed taste.
In the last 6 months, they've Increased the price, decreased the volume, changed the taste. The French Vanilla used to taste like a creamy vanilla cookie. I couldn't wait to have my morning shake. They changed the formula to get USDA organic approved. Now, it tastes very bitter, somewhat plastic and rusty. In addition, consumer reports recently reported on one of the protein mixes contain high levels of metal.
I used to be subscriber to the Vega One. These guys just did a 'new coke' move and jumped the shark. I mix it with my steel cut oats for breakfast. I cancelled my subscription and bought a few tubs of the old mix at the local grocery store until I can find a replacement brand.
