2. CREATINE ENHANCED WITH VITAMINS C AND E
Four to six grams of creatine taken with a post-training meal will support muscle growth and repair. If you add a creatine drink fortified with plenty of vitamins C and E, your recovery should be even smoother. Cortisol, a hormone "unfriendly" to muscles, increases with training. 1,000 milligrams of vitamin C can help lower cortisol levels, while 800 international units of vitamin E will help offset muscle damage and can potentially increase the storage of carbohydrates as muscle glycogen.
