bryan, thx that you joined this discussion! I know now for sure, that you can enhance hypertrophy strongly by micronutriets. I think that this might be a reason why "hard gainer" exist. anyway, would be nice if you could tell us which nutriuts you consider most important! according Vitamin C: I think that Vitamin C enhances hypertrophy BY more damage. It is just a question of interpretation. We know that Vitamin C is a collgen-accelerator and so I think that scietists found out that vitamin C does more damage before or after training. But I think that this is strongly anabolic.................. There is evidence that Vitamin C not only supports hydroxylation in collagen synthesis but also works almost as a growth factor in the synthesis of connective tissue! therefore i think that it is really good to take vitamin c right before and after training.
