In this video, we’re going to talk about the nutrients that make muscles grow. We’re also going to talk about things that will slow down the breakdown of muscle. The myth is that you need more protein to build muscle. The whole conversion of breaking down the protein and building it back up requires vitamins and minerals. We don’t necessarily need more protein—we need more nutrients. 

The top two nutrients that many people are missing are:
1. Potassium 
2. Trace minerals 

Other vitamins you need:
• Fat-soluble vitamins (vitamins A, D, E, and K)
• B vitamins 
• Vitamin C 

All of these are necessary for the conversion of muscle tissue. If you exercise, you will break down and build up tissue, and this is also necessary.  

Common issues people have with building muscle:
• Insulin resistance 
• Stress (high cortisol) 

What you can do to help build muscle:
• Intermittent fasting (2-3 meals per day) 
• No snacks
• Have fatty protein 
• Consume a moderate amount of protein (3-6 oz.)
• HIIT (high-intensity interval training) 
• Sleep
