The Best Morning Cocktail For Muscle Building

The Best Morning Cocktail For Muscle Building

Morning Cocktail


If you are one of those people who get up and workout first thing in the morning, the last thing you want is for your fuel to come from your muscles, that is your body breaking down muscle protein in order to supply the body with energy to workout. Therefore it is crucial that you have a pre-workout nutrition plan to 1. support and maintain muscle mass and 2. prepare your body for optimal recovery.

Here is the Ultimate Muscle Building Morning Cocktail:

  1. BCAA’s – Branch Chain Amino Acids
  2. Juice of one lemon
  3. Glutamine
  4. L-Carnitine
  5. Green Tea (optional)

BCAA’s free fat from cells that can be readily used up for the workout instead of the body breaking down protein or muscle mass. BCAAs help promote protein production, storage and muscle growth. BCAAs have an effect on all protein metabolism, and during periods of stress are required by the body in larger amounts than any other amino acid.

Lemons are one of the most alkalising foods for the body and a good pH level is essential as too much acidity in the body can be inflammatory.

Ascorbic acid, vitamin C, promotes wound healing in the body and is an important nutrient in maintaining healthy bones, tissue and cartilage. It also calms inflammation in the body.Vitamin C travels through the body, neutralising any free radicals. Free radicals can interact with the healthy cells of the body, damaging them and their membranes and causing inflammation. High levels of potassium in lemons can help brain and nerve functioning and control blood pressure.

As for Glutamine, under conditions of metabolic stress, including injuries, illness, and even severe emotional distress, the level of glutamine in the body declines markedly, which is thought to adversely influence resistance to infectious diseases. Persons who maintain a relatively large muscle mass may have a greater ability to withstand and recover from stressful events. Chronic illness and lack of exercise work together in a vicious cycle: poor health makes it more difficult to exercise, leading to lower muscle mass and lower glutamine stores, contributing to a higher incidence of health problems and slower recovery.

L-Carnitine’s most popular use lies in the area of fat loss, transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria (the energy producing part of the cell). This means the more L-Carnitine in our system, the more our body uses fat as an energy source and therefore the more fat we burn! Other benefits include increases in the use of oxygen, reductions of the accumulation of acids and waste products (ie. Lactate), as well as improvements in endurance.

Green tea is option in this cocktail. There are many benefits of green tea including its fat burning properties.
