In the twenty-first century, the growth of the gym supplements market has been exponential. Furthermore, according to market research on the subject, between the years of 2018 and 2028 (forecasted), there is no sign of slowing down. In 2023, the current market value of gym supplements sits at about 19.14 Billion US Dollars and is forecasted to keep growing to a market high of 24.17 Billion dollars, with an average annual yearly growth of about 4.78%.
Due to the massive size of the market, many new competitors have entered in order to take advantage of the massive profit potential. Although the growth of this market, both in financial value and competitors, is actually a positive for most consumers, at the same time, there can be some drawbacks. The most notable negative side effect of this growth is that, for many new consumers, knowing what businesses and brands to trust can be difficult.
This is where Prime Growth Nutrition steps in – as South Africa’s premier gym supplement provider, we understand that the amount of competition selling similar products can lead to questions about what you should be taking.

In order to emphasise this point, this article will review some of the most popular brands and gym supplements we currently stock at Prime Growth Nutrition. In each section we will begin by providing a brief overview of the company behind the brand, after which we will highlight some of our favourite products each provider offers. In this way you will not only get a good idea of the leading products on the market, but also get a better sense of the product range we stock.
USN (Ultimate Sports Nutrition)
When considering gym supplements, especially in a South African setting, USN supplements often come to mind. The company opened its doors twenty-three years ago and was one of the first gym supplement brands to be introduced in South Africa. Afterwards, they quickly became the pre-eminent South African sports nutrition brand. The best way to understand their dominance in the market is observed by the fact that USN is the first multinational supplements company in all of Africa. Currently they provide products to over seventy countries worldwide.
The success of USN is derived from their trusted brand name. All USN gym supplements undergo rigorous quality testing and are made from only the highest quality raw materials. However, most competitors today pride themselves on the use of high-quality ingredients in the manufacturing of their products – what sets USN apart is their creative and extensive product range. In the section below let us look at some of our favourite USN gym supplements stocked at our online Prime Growth Nutrition website.
USN Gym Supplements Highlights

Let’s review some of our favourite SSA gym supplements that we stock at Prime Growth Nutrition.
SSA Gym Supplements Highlights
SSA Pure Dextrose: Dextrose is a simple sugar, meaning that it is easier for the body to break down and to absorb. With the current trend of intra-workout supplements growing in popularity, finding gym supplements that can quickly be absorbed during the middle of your workout is important. This Dextrose supplement is specifically designed for that purpose and will provide you with a boost of energy, allowing you to surpass your limits like never before.
SSA ZMB-6 Pro: The term ZMB-6 may sound like a dangerous chemical, but in fact this is just SSA Supplement’s proprietary blend of zinc, magnesium and vitamin B6. Not only can this combination of vitamins and minerals provide you with a boost in testosterone, it is also helpful in strength enhancement, faster recovery times and better-quality sleep to name a few of its many benefits.
SSA Hellfire Neuro: With the scientific advancement in the field of sports nutrition it was found that gym supplements that can increase cognitive function can actually benefit and help improve one’s workouts. This category of gym supplements is known as nootropics, and SSA Hellfire Neuro is one of the best on the market in this regard. Hellfire Neuro will not only raise your cognitive function but, thanks to the hydro-pump support, you are sure to stay hydrated as well – giving you the energy and focus you need to succeed.

Designed to be used as a meal replacement, this product contains anti-bloating digestive enzymes to ensure that you are losing weight while still receiving the energising benefits of protein.
Nutritech is definitely a newer gym supplements manufacturer compared to those already discussed, as they were only established in 2011. A brainchild of its three founders; Jaco Serfontein and brothers Chris and Mike Walton, Nutritech is nonetheless a popular, trustworthy brand in the South African market. The goal of these three founders, driven by a passion for professional athleticism, was to provide athletes with a range of supplements that would boost their game and take their fitness regimes to the next level.
Nutritech is focused on their manufacturing process and, over their twelve years in operation, have held onto their factory and warehouses – instead of outsourcing to third-party manufacturers even though this is often a cheaper alternative. This is because Nutritech believes that handling and overseeing its own manufacturing processes is the best way to produce excellent quality products time and time again. This is just one of the many reasons Nutritech has quickly become one of the most popular and trusted brands on the market today.
Nutritech Gym Supplements Highlights:
Nutritech Hulk Anabolic Pak: This cost effective 300 capsule pack contains three products in one. These include natrabol beta-ecdysterone which helps to increase protein synthesis and better retain nitrogen, ashwagandha which is an all-natural antioxidant that can alleviate stress and anxiety, and finally, Testo XL, a natural testosterone booster. This bulk supply will last you the entire month.
Nutritech Testo XL: This gym supplement forms part of the Hulk Anabolic Pak above, but it can also be bought and consumed separately. The Testo XL gym supplements, containing a similar ZMB-6 formulation, will give you a boost to testosterone levels. In return this will aid recovery and boost your overall fitness performance.
Nutritech All-Day BCAA 5000: Branch-chain amino acids are a great way to get all the positives of proteins in a more easily absorbable form. Branch-chain amino acids are critical amino acids, providing you with the energy you need to perform at your best.
