Can you please tell me what herbs are good to help out those in sports, weightlifting etc. Things that assist in developing muscle tone.

Developing good muscle tone is dependent on a good supply of nutrients, well digested and absorbed, to go along with a balanced muscular workout.

Helpful herbs include:

* Alfalfa, which is rich in vitamins and minerals and enzymes that are helpful for processing nutrients;

* Flax seed, which contains healthy oils and protein.

Some supplements sold for body building may have harmful side effects. For example, protein supplements may cause liver damage and steroids may cause malfunction of the adrenal glands, sexual dysfunction and heart disease.. For long term health, a consistent healthy, balanced diet and regular exercise & relaxation is necessary to nourish all parts of the body.
