Pharmaceutical preparations for muscle growth

In this article, we will consider what pharmaceutical preparations that can be bought at almost any pharmacy will help for muscle growth, strength and quick recovery. 

Potassium orotate

калия оротат

The drug is a stimulator of endogenous biochemical processes, belongs to the metabolism. It is produced mainly in tablet form, dispensed in a pharmacy without a prescription. The average dosage for an athlete is 1.5-2 g per day. In fact, potassium orotate is a common mineral salt found in the tissues of any living organism. The drug helps to strengthen the cardiovascular system and has an anabolic effect, allowing the athlete to recover faster after training. The drug enhances diuresis and improves appetite.

For a noticeable progress of a bodybuilder, the drug is not particularly effective, but, nevertheless, in general, it is useful for the body, is well tolerated by the athlete and has no side effects. . So they can train with the best results, endurance and physical performance increase. Also, for a tangible effect, it is practiced to take it together with the necessary vitamins, adaptogens and other metabolic agents, for example, asparkam.




The composition of asparkam includes potassium and magnesium in a form that is easily absorbed by the human body - aspartate. Potassium and magnesium contribute to the normalization of metabolic processes in muscle cells, maintaining normal osmotic pressure in them. This is realized through the potassium-sodium pump (the predominant location of potassium inside the cell, and sodium outside the cell space). However, the work of the potassium-sodium pump will be ensured only if a sufficient amount of energy is supplied to the cells, for which magnesium is responsible.

Aspartate facilitates the transport of potassium and magnesium into cells, which has a beneficial effect on the athlete's body. The drug increases efficiency, which contributes to the rate of muscle building. Magnesium, which is involved in protein metabolism and supplies energy in this process, allows the athlete to effectively build muscle in the process of strength training. Exceeding this dose does not give an additional effect, since the amounts of magnesium and potassium that are excessive for the body are excreted through the kidneys.

Doctors advise taking asparkam gradually, one or two tablets three times a day. The course of taking asparkam itself depends only on the body of the athlete himself. Asparkam should be taken after meals in the morning and afternoon, in the evening it is not recommended to take it, since the absorption of potassium and magnesium by the body slows down in the evening.




It is a stimulant of biochemical processes, Riboxin has a beneficial effect on the athlete's cardiovascular system. It is a source of intracellular energy. The drug increases the strength of heart contractions, increasing stroke volume and coronary blood supply, has anabolic and antiarrhythmic effects. Riboxin improves blood supply to muscle tissues, normalizes energy metabolism, activates metabolic processes in the myocardium, as well as a number of enzymes.

In addition to a positive effect on the heart, Riboxin improves the regeneration of muscle tissue. However, Riboxin alone is not enough for effective recovery after heavy training, so it is recommended to take it together with a drug such as Trimetazidine.




This drug in its properties is very similar to the popular drug Mildronate, only the cost of the first is much lower. Trimetazidine contributes to a better supply of oxygen to cells, helps to preserve intracellular energy, prevents the action and formation of free radicals, helps restore the functional activity of the retina, and also increases resistance to physical stress.

Taking trimetazidine makes training more powerful and productive. The effect of the intake will be noticeable in the second week of the course. Trimetazidine combines well with other drugs.


This material presents examples of pharmacological preparations available in any pharmacy in the CIS countries. Specifically, in your region there may not be such drugs, but there are definitely analogues.
