What are workout supplements?

The workout supplement market is growing fast and at a steady pace, valued at 12.6 billion dollars in 2019 and expected to grow 8.7% between 2020 and 2027. This is given to the increase in the search for a healthier lifestyle, which often includes frequenting a gym or doing some kind of workout. Naturally, people have also started looking for the best way to fuel their bodies and look for the best foods to eat on a daily basis.

Ingredients to include in your fitness supplements


Creatine is a substance naturally produced by the amino acids in our kidneys and liver that serves to preserve the energy of the muscles and help with the healing and development of the muscular fibers. This substance makes it easier for our body to gain mass while improving physical performance and lowering the risk of injuries.

Creatine is a high-energy phosphate molecule that groups in the form of phosphocreatine, accelerating the regeneration of ADP into ATP and the primary energy carrier in the body cells.

Even though creatine is produced naturally by our bodies, it can also be used as a supplement to improve performance and help athletes gain muscular mass. The correct use of creatine improves fitness performance, helps muscle growth, and helps with the prevention of Parkinson’s disease.


Protein is the most abundant macromolecule present in the human body, constituting around half of the weight of the cells. This molecule is responsible mostly for supporting and building the structure of the cells. It acts as a structural component that supports most parts of our hair, nails, muscles, bones, and many other body parts and plays an important part in cell management, having a great influence on the structural formation of the cells. It is easily found in animal and plant-based products, and all the supplies we need for our daily life can be obtained by a balanced diet.

However, if your goal is to build muscle and achieve a leaner and stronger physique, supplementing your diet with protein is essential. As protein plays an important part in the regeneration of cells, by not consuming enough protein, you’re not giving your body the fuel it needs to regenerate those cells and grow muscle.

Protein can come in many shapes and sizes, such as powders, pills, drinks, or snacks, and it can be a great product to start your product line with.


Carbohydrates are the body’s first energy reserve. They are made to be eaten daily as part of a balanced diet. As we go on with our lives, doing sports and spending energy, carbs are the first energy reserves that the cells will burn, and if not burnt, they will be stored as fat by our organism to be used next time our body needs to spend energy.

Carbs are very often painted as the villain in many fitness journeys, but in reality, if you’re trying to build muscle and are not consuming a good amount of carbs, you’re essentially not giving your body enough energy to spend, and forcing it to eat up muscle to use as energy, essentially taking back all the progress you’ve made by working out and doing sports.

Starting any product line can be hard

Many people have the dream of starting their product line and selling their products, but in reality, starting a product line can be challenging, especially for those who don’t have experience in the industry.

Contrary to popular belief, launching a product doesn’t have to be expensive. It can be if you opt for a super customized product that demands contract manufacturing and wants to customize every aspect of it. If that’s not the case, the best option is usually the private label, as it offers a few customizations while keeping the price low and the production time short.

Finding a manufacturer can be a challenging step when starting a product line. It may seem like the manufacturers are infinite, and it’s impossible to find the perfect one. This can stall the production process for weeks or months until all the negotiation and sampling process is done. This gets even harder if you’re trying to negotiate with people from other countries who might not speak the same language or have the same habits as you.
