From a wide variety of supplements on the market, not everything on the shelf is what you need. Here are top 5 most inessential supplements in the market which don't really need to be consumed to see results.


1. Mass Gainers

The most convenient supplement suggested by trainers for skinny people. In reality, it's just a sugar-filled tub that will surely get you fat real quick. Most companies fill up the gainers with low-quality protein and multiple ingredients that don't really matter. Since it's humanly not possible to put on more than 1-5 kilos of muscle in a year, what you actually put on is simply fat. Basically, they are nothing but fat gainers



2. Pre Workouts

Have you ever felt that kick after you take the pre-workouts? It's nothing but a caffeine rush which causes hyperactivity within the brain. Addiction of pre-workout supplements can cause bad sleep quality, insomnia and lot more. Though you shouldn't start your lifting journey right with consuming pre-workout, you can add them later on. Make sure you restrict to a scoop on the days you feel beat down.



3. Testosterone Boosters


One word answer- bullshit! Most T-boosters aren't T boosters but are just libido enhancers. You will witness better erections and get tricked into thinking that your testicles are producing more testosterone. That's exactly what not happens!



4. Fat Burners

This term sounds so soothing, but it won't suit your body. All those models you see taking fat burning pills are competitive athletes. They use them to get rid of the last of ounces of water they are holding right before stepping on stage. If you are anywhere between 20-40% body-fat, burners are not for you. You will sweat and piss like crazy, feel dizzy and lethargic at times and some can even cause heart burns.



5. Branch Chain Amino Acids

Many of us take BCAAs thinking that this supplement will give us sustained energy and help muscle recovery. But very recent researches have proven that if your protein intake is at par with what you really need, you don't need to supplement with aminos. Just focus on your daily protein intake.
