Protein is the building block of muscles. In order to gain muscles, you must eat a lot of protein. But why do you still need amino acids?
Not too many people know that amino acids are needed to digest the proteins. When your body lacks amino acids, it will break down your muscles to make the amino acids. Now you know why the majority doesn’t gain any muscles despite gulping down tons of proteins.
Titanium dioxide in vitamins and supplements: Is it safe?
Because I take a large number of nutritional supplements, I’ve become increasingly concerned over the years about supplement excipients, binders and fillers.

If you take any capsule form supplement, do you know what are they made of? Most capsules (perhaps more than 95% of all capsule-form supplement) are gelatin capsules. Gelatin is made from waste products of the cow after they kill it. Skin, hooves and ears. By the way, have you heard of rBGH (recombinant bovine growth hormone)? They either inject it or more commonly they implant the hormone into the cows’ ears. Naturally the ears are where the most hormone is concentrated. After they kill the cow, the ears are used to make gelatin, which goes to become your vitamin capsule, and ice-cream, and skin-care products, and cosmetics, and gelatin protein (I always wonder why there are people who want to buy gelatin protein?).
