When you’re looking for the best food to help you build muscle, what’s the first nutrient that comes to mind? You probably answered protein. Protein synthesis is essential, but there is more to it than that. You’re going to want nutrients that can help you work out for a greater amount of time, reduce inflammation and help you get rid of fat. With the right superfoods, you can assist your body in building those muscles.
So what are some of these incredible superfoods? We’ll begin with mango. Mangos have over fifteen different vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals. The antioxidants can help tremendously with preventing free radical production. Mangos are also great as a source of quick digesting carbs, making them perfect should you need a quick burst of energy.
They may be tiny, but chia seeds are strong in omega-3 fatty acids that help with inflammation and they are also great as a source of hydration. A drink with chia seeds can provide significant endurance benefits. Another small food packed with major benefits are garbanzo beans, or chickpeas. As pre-workout fuel or post-workout muscle building, you can’t go wrong with these.
Of course we can’t forget about a customary favorite: the muscle building benefits of eggs. Besides the protein perks, eggs are also rich in vitamin B12, riboflavin, and folic acid, all of which assist with providing energy during a long workout.
