1)      Read all of the warnings and ingredients: While stacks and boosters are perfectly safe and incredibly effective it’s important that you pay attention to all of the ingredients you’re putting into your body. Read up on any “blends” that have multiple ingredients so you can make sure you aren’t doubling up on anything. Doubling up on nutrients can cause an overdose.

Also, make sure you keep track of the warnings and any negative physical or mental changes. If you notice any of these changes you should seek medical attention.

2)      Check with your doctor before getting started: Certain nutrients can affect health problems differently. It’s best to get a doctor’s clearance before putting large amounts of any vitamin into your system. By keeping your doctor in the loop you’ll have the best chance for success.

Follow and adjust the guide as best suits your routine and you’re sure to see great results. You can even work your way through the levels and the goals as you move along with your bodybuilding mission.
