You Need To Try These Effective Weight Loss Supplements

If you’re looking to level up your weight-loss journey, you may be researching the possibility of implementing diet supplements or weight loss supplements into your healthy lifestyle. And, if we’re not wrong, that’s probably how you stumbled across this article.


A quick background of weight loss supplements 

First things first, it’s pretty important we get something out of the way. With our experience in the fitness and wellness world, we’ve come across a few harsh stereotypes, and definitely more than our fair share of fad diets.

As a result, weight loss supplements often get a bad rep, bad name, and harmful stereotype. And don’t get us wrong, a lot of it is fairly deserved, so it’s important to be cautious when adding something new such as a weight loss supplementation into your diet. We even wrote an entire article detailing everything you need to know about diet pills, and why you should avoid them.

That’s where we come in.

Specialising in natural weight loss supplements (and a whole range of other healthy, natural supplementations as well, if you didn’t already know), here at Innermost, we know a thing or two about supplementations. And we want to help.

Firstly, let’s take a look into the details. Why lose weight, and why incorporate weight loss supplements (or, as we’re advising, natural weight loss supplements), into your diet.

The benefits of weight loss

While many people choose to embark on a weight loss journey for a number of reasons (all of which are completely valid), the benefits that come with weight loss can be pretty impressive in terms of health and wellness.

The benefits stretch far and wide and impact more than just your physical health (we’re talking about performance and mental health, too), here are some of the most notable benefits to losing weight healthily:

  • Enhanced blood sugar regulation
  • Improved heart health and functioning
  • Greater mobility
  • Boost in energy
  • Decreased risk of strokes
  • Improved sleep duration and quality

Why do people use weight loss supplements?

Weight loss supplements come in all shapes and sizes, forms and even flavours. From capsules to gummies and everything in between (even teas), the attraction is understandable, with many promising quick results from exercising alone… without even considering a person’s diet, lifestyle or even what ingredients are used. That’s why natural is the way forward.

Innermost’s weight loss supplements

Whilst we have a range of high-quality (and award-winning, might we add) health and wellbeing supplementations, we have a range of products to help assist in weight loss. Introducing The Lean Protein, The Define Booster and The Tone Capsules, providing a variety of options to take your fitness regime to the next level, and achieve those weight loss goals in a happy and healthy way.

The Lean Protein

If you’re looking to kick-start your weight-loss journey, this is a great place to start. Contrary to popular belief, implementing protein into your weight-loss diet is vital (and no, they won’t make you bulky).

Crafted to help you shed the weight you want to lose and slim down in a healthy way, The Lean Protein contains all-natural ingredients that aid in the metabolisation of fat. We’re talking high-quality protein, Inulin, Acetyl L-Carnitine and more.

Oh.. and you can pick from Vanilla or Chocolate flavour, too. Delicious and effective.

Don’t just take our word for it, though, with 85% of respondents stating that they lost weight in line with their goals after integrating The Lean Protein into their diet.

The Define Booster

Part of our award-winning booster family, The Define Booster is popular. Hugely popular. And to be honest, it’s not hard to see why.

Created to ensure that your weight loss goals become a reality, The Define Booster contains one thing and one thing only: Acetyl L-Carnitine. Definition, here you come, baby.

The Tone Capsules

Last (but by any means least), are our convenient natural weight loss supplement, The Tone Capsules. Available as a month-long-supply, The Tone Capsules kick fad diets to the kerb and forefront research-backed ingredients that pack an effective punch.

Reduce your cravings, improve your metabolism and lose weight the healthy way.


Sourced by nature, backed by science: here at Innermost we pride ourselves on using the highest quality ingredients to ensure the absolute best results, the healthy way. After all, that’s the only way we know how.

If you’re about to start your fitness journey, are mid-journey, or perhaps just need a helping hand along your way, integrating a diet supplement into your life doesn’t have to be scary. Ignore the fad diets, steer clear of the “miracle products” and trust in yourself and your journey.

Pick healthy habits, select research-backed products, and stay true to yourself. It’s a marathon, not a sprint, so don’t give up. Every (fitness) journey is one worth taking!

Until next time.

From the Bedroom to the Gym: Is Your Sex Life Affecting Your Workout Performance?
The relationship between sex and workout performance is one that’s long been debated by scientists and fitness fanatics alike. It’s complicated and multifaceted, so answering the question of whether your sex life is affecting your training is difficult. That said, today we’re going to take a look at a variety of evidence, both academic and anecdotal, as well as several different scenarios and at least try to reduce some of the mystery around the subject. First, it helps to understand what’s actually happening to the body, both physically and psychologically, during both activities.   The Effects of Sex on the Body Sexual activity causes several changes to occur in the body:   Physical Changes That Occur During Sex During sexual activity and the lead up to it, the human body undergoes a process known as the sexual response cycle. This is the case for both males and females, though the cycle can be highly individual and may not be the same each time for each person. Describing the full sexual response cycle is beyond the scope of this article, however it consists of 4 phases: Desire Arousal Orgasm Resolution Factors such as elevated heart rate, increased blood flow and pressure and heightened muscle tension all come into play. If you’d like to read about the sexual response cycle in more detail, check out this great article from Cleveland Clinic.   Psychological Changes That Occur During Sex Several psychological changes occur both during and after sex. Most notable are the release of endorphins and oxytocin, which are associated with improved mood and a better sense of wellbeing. These are also responsible for reduced stress levels, which brings a multitude of additional benefits that are of particular interest to those of us participating in regular training and exercise. Cortisol, the hormone responsible for stress, is catabolic in high levels, meaning it can cause the breakdown of lean tissue. So, whilst it is unclear whether sex itself affects workout performance, the reduction in stress levels it may bring is definitely beneficial for preserving our results!   The Effects of Exercise and Training on the Body Exercise and training also cause the body to undergo a number of changes. These occur both during and after the physical activity. There are in fact a number of similarities in changes that happen during exercise and sex:   Physical Changes That Occur During Exercise The physical changes that happen in the body vary based on the type of exercise being undertaken, however, there are some that are common to exercise in general: Increased heart rate Increased blood flow, especially to the muscles Faster, deeper breathing due to additional oxygen needs Heightened activity within the circulatory, respiratory, musculoskeletal and endocrine systems A full summary of the changes that occur within these systems can be found here. More aerobically demanding exercise will, of course, place greater emphasis on the circulatory and respiratory systems as well as causing fat to be metabolised as an energy source. Resistance training, which often relies more heavily on the lactate and creatine phosphate energy systems, instead promotes greater muscular and endocrine (hormone) activity. Note the common physical changes between sex and exercise here, as they do crossover!   Psychological Changes That Occur During Exercise The psychological changes that occur during exercise are similar to those experienced during sexual activity and are mostly related to the release of endorphins and other ‘feelgood’ hormones. These help to regulate mood, and it is common knowledge that frequent exercise and leading an active, healthy lifestyle promotes a feeling of wellbeing.   Does Sex Affect Our Workouts? This is where things become complicated. Though extensive studies have been done on the subject, the results of these have varied massively. We must also take into account the experience of individuals, and this anecdotal evidence again has huge variance. Let’s look at both:   Sex and Training: What the Science Says Scientific studies on the relationship between sex and training are contradictory at best. There’s no denying the positive benefits of both activities, particularly from a psychological perspective, but as for the effect of sex on actual performance in the gym the results are inconclusive. A study, published in April 2021, by Kirecci, Albayrak and co. examined the effects of sexual activity of 50 men in the 24 hours prior to training on lower body strength. The study measured effects by having the men perform 3 separate squat sessions, each at the same time of day. Each of these sessions occurred after participating in or abstaining from sexual activity the night before. The men performed 5 sets of 5 repetitions of their maximum squat weight during these sessions and the difference in weight lifted was observed. The study concluded that ‘sexual intercourse within 24 hours before exercise [has a] detrimental effect on lower extremity muscle force, which suggests that restricting sexual activity before a short-term activity may be necessary.’ Aside from this study, most others found either no notable relationship between sex and athletic performance. A meta-analysis of 9 crossover studies, conducted by Zavorsky and Brooks and published on 16 September 2022, confirms this. The analysis concluded that ‘The results demonstrate that sexual activity within 30 min to 24 h before exercise does not appear to affect aerobic fitness, musculoskeletal endurance, or strength/power.’ This is perhaps more notable, because these studies incorporated different types of exercise and were not restricted purely to a strength/power based activity like squats.   Anecdotal Evidence: What About the Experiences of Real Gym Goers? The anecdotal evidence is, as expected, highly individualised. However, there tends to be a bias against the results of most studies, particularly in those participating in sports involving strength and aggression. For example, many fighters claim that they perform better when they abstain from sex in the days leading up to a contest. Similarly, bodybuilding forums are full of debate on this topic and many claim they note a significant decrease in motivation to train at maximum intensity after sexual activity. It has been hypothesised that this may be due to a downregulation in testosterone production after sex; during orgasm the mineral zinc is released in the body and this is also a precursor for natural testosterone production in the body and may, therefore, provide some reasoning as to the experience of many trainees.   Key Takeaways The relationship between sex and workout performance will always be a complicated one. The effects of one on the other in terms of physical fitness and, in particular, mental wellbeing, are clear, but when it comes to actual performance this appears to be highly individual. We’d advise doing what feels best for you but not worrying too much about it. Instead, prioritise your nutrition and make sure you’re fuelling your workouts properly.
