Top 5 Supplements for a Summer Cut
Summer is approaching fast! Have you achieved your goals of looking lean? Are you rocking that beach body you envisioned months (or even years) ago? If you’re like most, you’re going through that dreaded 10-pound finish line. Those last several pounds are always the hardest to burn, but we have the solution: scientifically proven ingredients.
Whether you want the energy to push through another 10 or 20 minutes of your workout, or you want to directly stimulate fat burning, we have a supplement for that. Let’s take a look at the top 5 supplements for getting that lean, sexy, and rock-hard physique.
Thermogenics, more commonly referred to as fat burners, are scientifically proven ingredients that have a direct influence on the number of calories and adipose tissue your body burns.
The research and development team at Insane Labz have created two products that are exactly what you need and your fat cells fear.
1, 3, 7-trimethylxanthine (Caffeine): 1, 3, 7-trimethylxanthine, better known as caffeine, doubles as an energy booster and fat burning compound. It’s been shown in studies to directly stimulate your metabolic rate, increasing caloric expenditure.
Yohimbine: Another fat burner that acts as an energy igniter, yohimbine should not be taken lightly. It’s a highly powerful ingredient that has been shown to be effective at promoting fat oxidation.
L-Carnitine Tartrate: A highly bioavailable form of L-carnitine, this ingredient promotes fat burning, but also blocks fat from being stored. It’s a classic fat burning ingredient found only in the highest quality supplements.
Raspberry Ketones: This compound promotes leanness through norepinephrine-induced lipolysis, or fat burning via your fight-or-flight hormone, norepinephrine.

After a long day at the office or university (or both), a cup of coffee before your workout isn’t going to cut it. You need more; you need scientifically validated ingredients that have been shown to skyrocket your physical and mental energy levels. This is where a pre-workout comes in.
Caffeine Citrate: Rapidly absorbs and assimilates into the body to provide a giant rush of energy in a fraction of the time of caffeine anhydrous without the risk of crashing. Don’t forget: caffeine is also an excellent fat burner.
Beta Alanine: A necessary pre-workout ingredient that has been shown time and time again to increase strength and performance during your workout. You’ll know it’s working when you that tingling and flushing feeling starts on the back of your neck.
DMAE Bitartrate: Dimethylethanolamine, more commonly known as DMAE, is naturally produced in the human brain. This extract began making big waves in the supplement industry when DMAE was suggested to help increase focus and attention span in those with ADHD. As a pre-workout ingredient, you can expect laser focus and alertness during your toughest workouts.
You just finished your workout. Your muscles are burning, and you’re covered in sweat. It’s time to reward your body and yourself for all your hard work. A post-workout supplement can kickstart your recovery to ensure rapid repair and reduced soreness.
Creatine HCl: Studies show that creatine HCl is absorbed and assimilated in the intestines far better than creatine monohydrate. This is essential after a workout when your muscles are begging for the right ingredients. Due to its enhanced level of absorption, creatine HCl can promote the benefits of muscle growth and strength gains.
Creatine Magnapower: Creatine combined with magnesium, this form of creatine has been shown to reduce delayed on-set muscle soreness, ensuring you’ll be able to get back in the gym the next day. Avoiding muscle soreness and keeping to your workout schedule is important if you want to attain that lean look.
L-Norvaline: A celebrated nitric oxide booster, L-norvaline may be able to help boost blood flow. This will serve two key purposes: First, better blood flow will help with reduced soreness and overall recovery. Second, it will support nutrient uptake, ensuring the rest of the ingredients can do their job more efficiently.
Nothing says muscle building quite like protein. It’s no longer a recommendation; it’s a requirement if you want to build toned and lean muscle tissue. It can help to stave off hunger pangs while supporting protein synthesis and muscle growth.
Pea Protein: Proven to be just as effective as whey protein, pea protein is a healthier alternative that promotes muscle growth and fat burning.
Amino Blend: Amino acids are the very building blocks of muscle tissue so it’s no surprise that they are highly recommended when you want to build lean and sculpted muscle. Amino acids have been shown to promote protein synthesis, protect tissue from breakdown, and promote fat burning.
Alpha Lipoic Acid: This fatty acid has a long list of benefits, including improving glucose uptake, which is important for aiding in protein absorption. What’s more, alpha lipoic acid has been shown to promote a healthy weight loss.
Branched chain amino acids are the ultimate recovery supplement. They are the very building blocks of muscle, and they’ve been shown in a variety of studies to trigger a heightened level of recovery.
Leucine: The king of branched chain amino acids, leucine has been the popular subject of several studies, showing it to be an effective way to trigger protein synthesis, protect muscle tissue from breakdown, and promote recovery.
Iso-Leucine: Complementing the benefits listed above, iso-leucine might also be a powerful fat burning amino acid. Studies suggest that iso-leucine consumption is associated with a lower body weight.
Valine: Encouraging lean muscle development and growth, valine puts the finishing touches on the perfect BCAA team. It promotes recovery via protein synthesis and anti-catabolic mechanisms.
