SSA Supplements For Weight Loss And Management
Weight loss and weight management is arguably the most sought-after health and fitness goal and the right supplements can make achieving this goal much easier. If you’re looking to achieve a healthier body weight or maintain the weight that you currently have, SSA Supplements can be a valuable tool in your arsenal. They have a range of different products that are designed to – amongst other things – boost metabolism, reduce appetite, and increase energy levels, all of which aid in weight loss and management in their own way.
Thermo Lean Fat Burner
One of the most popular weight-loss supplements in SSA Supplement’s range is their Thermo Lean thermogenic fat burner. The 2-in-1 supplement is uniquely formulated to be taken in two respective servings split between daytime and night. The supplement was designed to increase energy and exercise performance that allows you to burn more fat as you train as well as in alleviating indigestion and help reduce bloating as a result.
The day-time servings include Advantra Z as a stimulant, as well as caffeine and green tea extract that aids with thermogenesis during the day while nightly servings consist of Alpha-Lipoic action for insulin support, dandelion root for water reduction, and the tried and tested Garcinia Cambogia, which blocks fat absorption – this ultimately results in non-thermogenic fat burning while you’re asleep.

- Consume 2 white capsules 30 minutes before bedtime
SSA Supplements For Muscle Building And Sport Performance
When it comes to building muscle and improving sports performance, nutrition plays just as big a role as any physical training and exercise. SSA Supplements can help streamline the strenuous process of hitting all your macros for your goal. The collection of performance supplements is designed to include support for muscle growth, strength, endurance, and recovery time – all helping you achieve your fitness goals quicker and more efficiently.
Just about anyone knows that one of the key supplements for muscle building and athletic performance is protein. Whey protein is quickly absorbed by the body, providing the necessary amino acids to support muscle growth and recovery. It can also help improve strength and endurance, allowing you to push harder during workouts.
The Pure Whey offering from SSA Supplements is a great-tasting protein powder that is packed with every benefit you expect from a top-quality protein blend – high in protein, low in fat and carbs. The perfect fusion of whey isolate, whey hydrolysate, and whey concentrate combine to create the optimal amino uptake with a range of benefits and is available in your choice of five mouth-watering flavours that include banana custard, chocolate mousse, island coconut, strawberry sundae, and vanilla cream.

- Consume one to three times daily
Creatine is another effective and practical supplement for building muscle. It’s a natural compound found in muscle cells that helps produce extra energy during high-intensity exercise and supplementing your workouts with creatine can carry numerous benefits. Not only does it boost your performance while training, but it can also improve your recovery time, letting you get back to working out sooner, ultimately resulting in better and more effective muscle growth and performance.
SSA Supplements’ creatine range could add significant value to your workouts if strength and muscle growth are what you’re after. Creatine Supreme and Creatine Transport are both SSA Supplements products that can help you achieve your goals more efficiently. Creatine Supreme operates as an energy enhancer within the body’s ATP system that simultaneously increases muscle volumising capacity, while Creatine Transport is a blend designed with essential insulin-spiking components.
Both of these products can ultimately lead to muscle growth and offers the following benefits as well:
- Massively increased energy levels
- A large boost in protein synthesis efficiency
- Greatly boosts the body’s natural IGF-1 levels
- Increases cell volumising levels
- Speeding up muscle recovery
- Can even decrease myostatin levels
- Rapid muscle recovery

SSA Pre- And Post-Workout Supplements
Pre- and post-workout nutrition is a great way to maximise your training session for optimal performance as well as recovering sufficiently afterwards. Although the terms are used broadly, SSA Supplements offers an array of different supplements that can serve more than one agenda. Let’s take a closer look at what some of these are and how they can assist you in achieving your goals.
Essentially, a pre-workout supplement is designed as a way to help you get ready and/or “pumped” for your workout. These products assist in increasing energy, focus, and endurance so that you can get the most out of your training. They come in many different forms including stimulant-based, stimulant-free, nootropic, amino, and thermogenic. The type to use would ultimately depend on your workout needs and even how you might react to the different variations.
For instance, stimulant-based pre-workout contains caffeine which could have undesired effects (like increased anxiety or heart rate) on some people in which case stimulant-free products would be better suited. Nootropic is mainly used for increased mental focus while amino and thermogenic pre-workout supplements help in burning fat and recovery (while you exercise) respectively. Luckily SSA Supplements cover all the bases for their pre-workout products.
Years of improved formulation have made Ganic-F Pump the SSA Supplement flagship product for good reason. With a perfected blend of beta-alanine and creatine modified with GlycoPump, betaine anhydrous and citrulline malate, the pre-workout is a great entry-level supplement that produces all the benefits you come to expect from a high-quality product, including increased levels of strength, energy, and GH spikes that results in muscle swelling pumps and intense mental focus.
If you’re looking to elevate your pre-workout, Hellfire Black and Hellfire Neuro are high stimulant-based supplements that also double as nootropic products. These pre-workouts will deliver extreme levels of energy with increased mental focus, too. As such, they are intended for experienced users only and should be used with caution.
Angelfire is a pre-workout formula that is a front-running supplement for women who are looking to take their training sessions to new levels. It’s a powerful mix that comprises glycine, beta-alanine, and L-carnitine as part of its main driving properties. It also contains beet extract that provides extra energy and a spike in iron levels which is extremely useful in women’s training.
For those sensitive to stimulant-based products, SSA has a few products on offer too. Hellfire Pump is a caffeine-free adaption of other Hellfire products that get close to providing the same benefits – making it a fantastic alternative if the jitters aren’t your thing. Alpha Nitrox is a stim-free pre-workout that’s packed with powerful, science-backed ingredients that is sure to take your training up a level. If you’re looking for a superb stimulant-free pre-workout, there’s no need to look any further.
Post-workout (or recovery) is an essential part of any exercise regime as damaged muscle tissue needs to be repaired to allow the body to recover optimally. The quicker this can happen, the quicker the muscles will be ready to train again. Recovery can take place in countless ways and in numerous forms. As such, there are a myriad of SSA supplements that can assist in the many different forms of recovery you, as an athlete, would like to focus on.
Muscle recovery is a form of recovery that most people would seek after as any type of exercise would fatigue muscles to some extent. SSA’s GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid) is one of the most comprehensive recovery products on the market these days. It is a naturally-occurring amino acid that works as a neurotransmitter in the brain. GABA is therefore considered an inhibitory neurotransmitter as it prevents certain brain signals and, as a result, decreases activity in the nervous system.
A calming effect washes over the brain when GABA attaches a protein to your brain. Due to this effect, the ability to relax intensifies and the quality of sleep is immediately improved. It’s for this reason that we dubbed GABA as arguably the best natural sleep aid in the fitness industry.

Beating The Cravings
We all know the importance of a good food plan when it comes to most health goals and we all know how difficult it can be to stick to that plan. Cravings for “unhealthy” sustenance are common and it’s something most people battle with. But what if there was a way to satisfy those cravings without the guilt of doing damage to your diet?
Well, we’re happy to say that SSA Supplements has a solution for this obstacle, too. Their High-Protein Nougat Bar is the ultimate solution for keeping all those temptations at bay. The sugar-free, yet delicious, bar is the go-to if you’re in the mood for a snack on the go. Not only can this product satisfy cravings, but the high-protein and the low-carb combo will keep you filled until your next meal time.
As you can see by now, there are plenty of reasons why the SSA brand is one of the top overall-selling brands here at Prime Growth Nutrition. If you’re looking to build muscle, improve your athletic performance, or want to become your best self, you can’t go wrong with these products. Their extensive catalogue of supplements has been meticulously designed and formulated to perfection over the last two decades, to help you achieve your fitness goals faster and more efficiently.
