the Best Supplements for Bulking

If you want to bulk up and build a leaner physique, finding the best supplements will help you achieve your goals a lot more quickly.

However, not all supplements are created equally.

Some contain ingredients that may be harmful or just not necessary at all. So I’ve gone to the trouble of providing a list of the best supplements for bulking that I have used myself that have helped me on my journey .


What are the Best Supplements for Bulking?


Please note: The following supplements are supplements that I use myself, please don’t take my recommendations as gospel. I have seen results with these and I continue to use them albeit religiously. The link to each is included for further info, but remember you don’t have to use anything here to see results for yourself but they help.

Optimum Nutrition ZMA

Used to increase muscle strength and anabolic hormone levels, this product contains zinc, magnesium and vitamin B6. It is also designed to increase muscle growth, healing and to promote quality sleep.

Customers gave this product an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars citing that they achieved deeper and more restful sleep, higher energy levels and strengthening of the immune system. ZMA is recommended by customers as a powerful and effective supplement for weight lifters.

BSN True Mass Ultra-Premium Banana Lean Mass Gainer 2.64kg

High quality whey protein powder that mixes quickly and supplies up to 47 grams of protein per serving. This product is a premium gainer and comes in a number of flavours. (Banana being my favourite)

There are of course a lot of plain and simple gainers on the market that all do the same job but I personally recommend this one, mainly because of the taste, it tastes really good. I usually buy the banana flavour and blend it in a cup with some vanilla ice cream and strawberries. I urge you to try it if you can. Tastes really good.

Muscleform Micropure Creatine

Pure and simple creatine nothing extra added, lasts long, with a low price.

A good creatine is good for energy levels and allows you to get more from your workout. When looking for a good creatine supplement go for one that doesn’t have bits and pieces added ,some companies put sugar and colouring in some mix it with Kool Aid and caffeine and market it as some kind of super energy drink

The price is reasonable and it is one of the few creatine supplement powders available that has virtually no flavour. Athletes and people who train int he gym use this because they know you don’t need anything added. Just pure. You will experience an increase in energy in your lifting programs, and . Not to forget this is very easy to mix.

Optimum Nutrition BCAA 1000mg

This supplement provides the branched chain amino acids which are considered the building blocks of all tissue development including muscles, and particularly in increasing muscle mass.

BCAAs are reported to be helpful in keeping your body in an anabolic state, I find the convenience of the caps is superior over mixing powders which don’t taste good. You will experience an increase in energy levels, sex drive, and of course bulking of muscle mass.

Optimum Nutrition Opti-Men Multivitamins

This supplement contains 25 vitamins and minerals with antioxidants, B-vitamins and a blend of 75 total ingredients that are formulated to enhance physical performance and energy levels. Customers have rated this product with 4.4 out of 5 stars.

The product works as stated by increasing energy levels and promoting restful sleep. The only things I would warn you about this stuff is it turns your urine bright yellow, and your dreams intensify and become more vivid during the first week of use. Strong stuff.


This guide is designed to provide you with an understanding of the best supplements for bulking according to my own experiences and which ingredients are most beneficial for you on your journey. In an ideal world we would get everything we need from normal food but in a lot of cases that is not possible. So I hope this guide has gone some way to helping you discover some of the best supplements for bulking.

The products identified are safe and effective if used properly. They all contribute to providing nutritional assistance in helping you achieve good muscle building goals.

As with any supplement, it always makes sense to check with your physician if you have any known medical conditions before starting on supplementation.


Happy bulking.
