The Best Supplements to Tone Up and Get Cut

Jul 20, 2016 | by: Team A8

Exercise and diet are a powerful combination when it comes to reshaping and sculpting your body. However, many people who try to get lean and tone up don't see the changes they want to see in their physique. Perhaps this has happened to you. This can be frustrating, making you feel you are hitting the wall. Supplements are designed to help reach and beat your goals, preventing you from hitting a plateau.

In this article, we will explore 4 categories as well as popular and well-reviewed supplements that you may want to consider looking into.

CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)

Conjugated linoleic acid, or CLA, is a type of fatty acid that is used by many bodybuilders and strength-training athletes. Numerous research results indicate that CLA can reduce body fat and increase lean muscle tissue activity, improving body composition. We have a great CLA supplement from Allmax Nutrition. Allmax CLA comes with 150 softgels and this is one of the best-selling CLA's. Another great product is PVL Essentials CLA. This one comes with 180 softgels.


Ephedrine is most commonly used as a weight loss supplement especially by bodybuilders who want to tone and reshape because it can help you cut fat and put on lean muscle at the same time. Ephedrine helps you to lost weight while preserving muscle. It is also wide recognized as an enhancer of cardiovascular performance so many athletes and sports competitors use ephedrine supplements as part of their training regimen. You can find a good selection of ephedrine from our supplements store.


Carnitine (or L-carnitine) is a non-essential amino acid. Carnitine is a "fat transporter", bringing fatty acids across cell membranes to the mitochondria to be released and used as an energy source. So carnitine may help ensure that the fatty acids are burned or oxidized as fuel. Also, fat burner research has shown that a carnitine deficiency may result in lower ATP (muscle energy) levels. During exercise/workout this amino acid gets consumed and its deficiency could limit the amount of energy available to the muscles. It could result in fatigue and compromised recovery. That is pretty serious. So anyone looking to shed fat and gain energy during exercise rely on carnitine supplementation. You may wish to refer to an article we published concerning various benefits of carnitine if you would like to receive more information. As far as the store, PVL L-Carnitine is definitely worth checking out.
