One gets blasted by marketing ads every single day, hour, minute and second by thirsty companies looking to make a quick buck. Whether it be on the T.V, magazine or computer, it doesn’t matter, it’s all the same. Supplement companies are no different they need to market their products in order to make money. The majority of these products are rubbish, except for a select few, which are protein powder, creatine and fish oil. Below I will list three rubbish supplements that one does not need to get big or lean, nor will it help them achieve their fitness goals and so on.
Pre-Workout powder just downright sucks, it’s a waste of money, full of cheap materials. Yet people still buy pre-workout powder for its stimulant properties, when there are way better and cheaper options out there. For example instead of drinking some pre-workout powder, one could drink a cup of black coffee which has the same amount of caffeine as in one or two scoops of pre-workout powder. They could also eat a pre-workout meal before heading out to the gym, containing some quick acting carbohydrates such as oatmeal and grains. Why waste money on a product that has no benefit to it, when there are way better options out there!
Supplement companies use appealing marketing words and tactics when they advertise their test booster products. One might have seen it before and it usually goes something like this “Gain two hundred percent more muscle mass, just by taking this product”. Many people fall for their tactics, traps and strategies. I wont lie, test boosters work but not in the way one thinks on how it works. No one will ever gain freaky amounts of muscle just by taking test boosters, however they will notice an increase in libido and so on, which could be seen as a benefit to some people.
Fat burners are complete rubbish and not to mention just downright dangerous. They contain dangerous and high amounts of caffeine and other stimulant products that are needed in order to burn fat. The other bad thing about fat burners is that they dehydrate ones body because the caffeine and the other stimulant products in them increase ones body temperature due to their thermogenic properties. instead of taking a fat burning supplement, one could just go do some more cardiovascular training and change their diets and I am a hundred percent sure that they will notice changes very quickly!
