6 Ayurvedic tips for Muscle Mass

Bodybuilding, working out and looking in shape has become an important part of life. Most people do some form of exercise on a weekly basis. With this comes the question of supplements – most of which are chemical based. Some of these chemical based supplements even have side effects. Tired of looking for natural body building muscle gainers? Baffled by the side effects of numerous synthetic gym protein powders like whey protein, mass gainers, body growth powders etc.? Luckily, Ayurved has an answer for you. Here are 6 Ayurvedic tips to get in shape and achieve that muscular look you’ve always wished for!

1. Shatavari benefits for weight gain:

Shatavari has been a very important component of Ayurvedic medical practices for thousands of years. It is well known for its adaptogenic properties and belongs to the asparagus family. Research has suggested that it contains strong antioxidants and can also provide anti-inflammatory benefits. Synthetic protein powders are produced to focus primarily on muscle gain and are devoid of any such benefits. Research has even suggested that shatavari increases the ability of muscles to use glycogen and free fatty acids thereby delaying exhaustion by a whopping 40%.

2. Ashwagandha For Muscle Strengthening

A powerful herb with an array of benefits Ashwagandha has been extremely beneficial for both body and mind. It has adaptogenic properties like shatavari and is found in North Africa and India. It is known to decrease body fat percentage, increasing muscle mass and testosterone levels in male consumers. Other benefits include reducing blood sugar levels, anxiety disorders and chronic stress that are not visible in other gym powders.

3. Gokhru To Reduce Muscle Fatigue

Gokhru reduces athletic fatigue significantly and increases muscle strength. It has been used to treat cough and asthama by increasing the supply of oxygen during the circulation of blood which makes usage of muscles effective and efficient. It also increases endurance levels by enhancing sexual libido. Gokhru is the perfect herb for athletes and individuals going to the gym since, like shatavari, it reduces fatigue while exercising and increases muscle strain tolerance.

4. Amla’s An Allrounder!

Widely regarded as an all-rounder in the herb family, this is an incredibly beneficial herb with numerous benefits. It delivers vital nutrients to the cells of the body, provides anti-inflammatory benefits, it is used by individuals for hair regrowth and offers various crucial benefits. Amla supports intense workouts by being effective at inhibiting muscular hypersensitivity. Synthetic gym powders are only helpful for weight gain due to which the abilities and benefits provided by amla remain unmatched.

5. Safed Musli For Faster Muscle Recovery  

Another herb with adaptogenic qualities that helps the human body adapt to stressful situations, safed Musli is a rare herb that grows in the Indian Subcontinent. Safed musli has been known to surge human growth hormone production and is the ideal herb to acquire big muscles. In addition to this, studies have shown that safed musli increases testosterone levels too. Muscle protein powders are known to aid muscle growth but safed musli provides dual benefits by assisting muscle growth as well as recovery.
