Most of the muscle mass and volume come from water and protein. This makes water the first muscle building supplementation for you.
Sounds simple, right?
First of all, chances are that you are not drinking enough water, and you are drinking diuretics that cause your body to lose more water that they provide. Dehydration is the nemesis of building muscles.
Second, most of the drinking waters contain contaminants. According to US Environmental Protection Agency top drinking water contaminants 1 categories are:
- Disinfection Byproducts
- Inorganic Chemicals
- Organic Chemicals
Remember these are general categories that may include hundreds of chemicals. Each contamination interferes with your body’s health and performance, and it makes it more difficult to build muscles.
Third, many drinking water from plastic bottles that contain Bisphenol A (BPA) which has estrogenic activity. Estrogens increase the risk of diseases including cancer, and they change the hormonal balance within your he body and suppress muscle building hormones. Your bodybuilding efforts is only as healthy and as effective as your natural hormones.
The trend to go BPA free is substituting Tritan for BPA. What many do not know is that Tritan is has more estrogenic activity than even BPA.
Quality drinking water is your first and perhaps the most effective bodybuilding supplement. It is fairly inexpensive and it is often ignored.
