Hydroxy Citric Acid (Garcinia Cambogia)

Hydroxy Citric Acid (HCA) is an ingredient found in the fruit rind of Garcinia cambogia, a plant native to Indonesia which, as the name suggests, has a chemical structure similar to citric acid. HCA has been shown to assist with appetite suppression and weight loss as it decreases the body’s ability to turn energy into fat, and is often combined with L-Carnitine in supplements to aid fat loss.

Lose Weight Effectively with Nutrients Direct

Losing weight can be achieved with a proper nutrition and exercise plan in place. However, the closer you get to your target weight, the harder weight loss seems to become. To help athletes get rid of persistent fats, we offer an extensive range of Australian online supplements that may assist you with weight loss. To learn more about the Australian online supplements that could help you reach your target weight, please read our information below.

Hydroxy Citric Acid (Garcinia Cambogia)

HCA or hydroxy citric acid is a substance derived from the Garcinia cambogia, a fruit native to Indonesia. The substance is known to suppress appetite and can be combined with other weight loss supplements for maximum effect.

One of the additional benefits of HCA is the fact it does not contain any calories. When you are on a calorie-controlled diet, you cannot afford to consume a shake containing hundreds of calories daily; therefore, HCA can be a great choice for anyone wanting to lose weight.

Because of the function of Hydroxy Citric Acid as an appetite suppressant, it is best used in the beginning of the diet, opposed to at the end of your weight loss journey. The main reasons why people fall off the diet wagon is cravings, so reducing those cravings with HCA can contribute to long-term weight loss.

If you find yourself struggling with appetite and almost reached your target weight, you can still use HCA as a supplement. However, it is important to determine why you are still struggling with hunger pains or cravings after you have been dieting for a long period. If you cannot find a problem with your nutrition, be sure to consult a nutritionist to alter your diet so you do not experience hunger pains or cravings.


Inulin is one of our Australian online supplements used for weight loss, but also muscle building and better health in general. In addition to that, it is an excellent source of dietary fibre, which means it promotes digestive health as well as weight loss and muscle growth.

One of the main benefits of inulin is that the supplement is versatile. It can be used in delicious smoothies, but also to bake. If you are tired of protein powder shakes, then inulin can be a good alternative during your weight loss journey.

Whey Protein Isolate

Our Whey Protein Isolate is one of the most powerful protein powders from the Australian online supplements range. Even though there are other protein powders in our Australian online supplements range, whey protein isolate tends to be the best protein powder for athletes with a slower metabolism, since this protein powder is absorbed rapidly.

In addition to weight loss, whey protein isolate is used for other fitness goals; this includes but is not limited to muscle building, better health and wellbeing, endurance and women’s fitness. The protein powder is also available in various flavours, so athletes can always find something they enjoy.

Whey Protein Concentrate

Our Whey Protein Concentrate supplement is also suitable for weight loss and muscle building, since this supplement contains high levels of branched chain amino acids, which are known to assist with muscle growth and muscle repair. By building more muscle over time, your body will find it easier to burn more calories. The consumption of protein has also shown to reduce the appetite of dieters and leads them to consume fewer calories.

Like Whey Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate is a fast absorbing protein. Even if you have a slow metabolism, you will still be able to benefit from the nutrients inside this supplement. Because of the fast absorption of the protein, Whey Protein Concentrate is best used between meals or directly after your training.

Hydrolysed Whey Protein Isolate

The protein powder with the highest bioavailability in our range of Australian online supplements is without a doubt Hydrolysed Whey Protein Isolate. The protein supplement is created by treating a purified form of whey protein with enzymes; this causes the protein to become pre-digested and absorbed rapidly by the body.

Hydrolysed Whey Protein Isolate contains high levels of branched chain amino acids, essential amino acids and bioactive peptide fragments that deliver benefits such as better muscle growth. The supplement is therefore suited for dieters, but also for athletes looking to increase their muscle mass.

ND Hydroxyshred

Our ND Hydroxyshred is a powerful fat burning, which consists of numerous fat-burning ingredients. These fat-burning ingredients include L-carnitine, green tea extract, African mango extract, guarana, choline bitartrate, inositol and forskolin. Naturally, these substances also have additional weight loss benefits, which includes but is not limited to appetite suppression and reduced calorie consumption.

ND Hydroxyshred also contains a high-grade colostrum with 35% immunoglobulin G. The presence of the high-grade colostrum ensures that digestion runs smoothly, which is good news for athletes who have experienced problems with the digestion of supplements in the past.

Acetyl L-Carnitine

Acetyl L-Carnitine is a supplement that is solely focussed on weight loss. It is the best source of carnitine known today, considering this supplement has the highest bioavailability. When used in combination with healthy nutrition and regular exercise, acetyl L-carnitine can be very effective for weight loss purposes.

The use of acetyl L-carnitine has also shown cognitive benefits. Studies have shown that L-carnitine can improve the mental performance of athletes, meaning they can focus more on their workouts. The supplement can also release stored body fats into the blood stream, which are then converted into energy. In conclusion, acetyl L-carnitine can be a good option for athletes struggling with persistent fats.


Please note that supplements can only be effective if you are willing to make lifestyle changes. When combined with healthy nutrition and regular exercise, all supplements mentioned above can be effective. However, when you do not maintain a healthy lifestyle, the use of supplements will not contribute a lot to your overall weight loss progress.

Even though there are many supplements that could help athletes to achieve maximum weight loss, there aren’t many supplements that are focussed on weight loss alone. If your focus lies solely on burning excess and persistent fats, you should consider hydroxy citric acid. Hydroxy citric acid tackles various pitfalls of weight loss at the same time, so if you have struggled with problems such as hunger pains and serious cravings in the past, hydroxy citric acid should be your first choice. Of course, the diet you use in combination with this supplement must still contain the right number of nutrients to ensure you lose the weight in a healthy way.

Weight loss is not just about shedding the pounds either, it is also about keeping them off. An increasingly large number of people is able to lose large amounts of weight successfully, only to gain it back later. To avoid gaining your weight back, you must see your new diet as a lifestyle change. Don’t fall back into old habits as soon as you’ve reached your target. Instead, increase your calories to maintain your current weight and keep on enjoying the benefits of healthy foods and plenty of exercise.

We do need to mention that our weight loss supplements are not only suitable for athletes who have a considerable amount of weight to lose, because our weight loss supplements are also used by athletes who are trying to get rid of persistent fats. Even if you are in good shape, some athletes are cursed with genetics that leaves them with persistent fats on certain parts of their bodies. Naturally, it takes a lot more for these athletes to get rid of these fat deposits, so they often use weight loss supplements to target those stubborn fats and reach their perfect physique.

In some cases, it might be necessary to get some professional help. Getting rid of stubborn fats is a lot more difficult than losing weight when you have a few pounds too many. Stubborn fats are often localised to a specific area on the body, which means that they might require specific exercises. The athlete in question is usually on his or her target weight as well, so the athlete actually doesn’t want to lose weight. The help of a personal trainer could be extremely valuable here. A trainer can make sure you maintain your muscle mass, while only burning the stubborn fats. He could also advise you on the best supplements to use to reach your goal.
