If you’ve just put together a workout and a diet program to help you melt fat and firm up your body, one additional point that you might want to consider is which supplements you can use that will help you take your results one step further.

Never allow yourself to believe that supplements can replace a proper diet and workout program.

Supplementation can help you get to the next level with your goals, but at the same time, it’s vital that you never allow yourself to believe that supplements can replace a proper diet and workout program. That is simply not the case and if you start thinking this, you’re going to be disappointed.

So once you have that proper diet and workout in place however, then you can consider the following to help improve your progress.

Protein Powder

The first supplement that’s a great idea for females is a high quality whey protein powder. Most women do struggle to get in enough protein on a daily basis and this can really hold you back from seeing best results.
To help prevent this from happening, turn to a high quality whey protein powder. These contain 20-25 grams of protein per scoop and will be a very fast and efficient way to get your protein intake up.

Protein powder comes in many different flavors as well, so there’s bound to be one that you find appealing.

Did you know that Herbalife, baby formula milk contain whey protein as well?

Fish Oil


The next key supplement to consider is fish oil. Like protein, many women also fall short in their omega fat intake, and this can cause some serious problems. Omega fats are required to sustain good insulin sensitivity and to promote optimal brain health as well.

Getting in enough omega fats can also help to safeguard you against a number of diseases such as diabetes, heart attack, as well as stroke.

If you aren’t consuming much fatty fish then using a fish oil supplement will help you get your needs met with ease. Each woman should aim for 3-5 grams per day for best results.

A Multi-Vitamin Rich In Iron And Calcium

Another great supplement to consider is a high quality multi-vitamin. Multi-vitamins are important for assurance purposes as there are always going to be those days when you aren’t eating exactly as you should. Women should seek out a multi-vitamin that is high in both calcium and iron, as these are two nutrients that they often aren’t taking enough of in their diet plan.

Iron will help you maintain higher energy levels as you go about your workout program and calcium will promote stronger bones.

Glutamine

Finally, the last supplement to add to the mix is glutamine. Glutamine is going to help to speed up your recovery process, so in that regard can help you see faster results from your workout program.

Since recovery is vital to success when doing your workouts, if your rates are slower, this means you’ll have to utilize an overall lower gym frequency.

So there you have four great supplements to think about adding to your regime. Use these and you will feel better throughout the week and see faster results as well.

Where to buy these supplements in Malaysia? Most pharmacies would have your standard fish oil and multi-vitamin. For protein and glutamine, your best bet would be a speciality store like GNC. I personally would not recommend purchasing whey protein at your local pharmacy as the cost per serving would be too high. For your protein supplement, try and stick to RM5 (or less) per serving
