Weight loss

The most important thing for weight loss is calorie deficit, ie burning more calories than you’re consuming.1 There are many ways to accomplish this goal. The following products can work in different ways to help target fat loss, preserve lean muscle, and control your calorie intake.

Impact Diet Whey

  • Per serving, Impact Diet Whey contains 39g of protein, 1g of glutamine, and only 220 calories. It also contains choline, which supports metabolism.
  • Impact Diet Whey provides protein to help keep you feeling full and protects your lean body mass even during a calorie deficit.1 Protein slows down digestion, which can satisfy feelings of hunger for longer periods of time and help us avoid overeating.2 Impact Diet Whey also cuts down on carbs while providing high quality protein for muscle repair.3 Choline and glutamine are two other nutrients shown to support weight loss.4,5

Impact Diet Lean

  • Impact Diet Lean is a protein-rich powder containing many ingredients (dietary fibre, vitamins and minerals) to support weight loss.
  • Impact Diet Whey is also helpful for increasing dietary fibre intake.6 Fibre is a form of carbohydrate that the body can’t digest; it makes us feel full. LeanBiome, an ingredient in Impact Diet Lean, and 17g of protein per serving help keep you feeling satisfied and less likely to exceed your calorie goals.


  • CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is a naturally occurring omega-6 fatty acid we can get from foods, but our body can’t make it on its own.
  • Some research has shown that CLA can support weight loss in overweight populations. Taking CLA alone gets you the nutrients without extra calories of the food sources it comes from, like meat and dairy products.


  • If you want to add flavour to your foods without adding sugar and calories, FlavDrops are perfect. They come in a choice of more than 15 calorie-free flavours.
  • When it comes to weight loss, calorie deficit is the most important factor, and FlavDrops can sweeten your food without any additional calories.

Build muscle

Building muscle is a common goal often overcomplicated. To gain muscle, you need plenty of calories, a resistance training programme, and enough protein to help your muscles build and repair after exercise.3 Supplements are great for supporting muscle growth, as they provide the nutrition and energy you will need.

Creatine Monohydrate

  • Creatine is a popular supplement proven for building muscle. Creatine is regarded as the most effective ergogenic aid to help with building muscle and increasing high intensity exercise capacity.8
  • Taking creatine regularly primes your muscles by maximising their creatine stores in preparation for muscle building.8

Clear Whey Gainer

  • Building muscle requires three factors: enough calories, enough protein, and enough exercise.9 Clear Whey Gainer is the best protein choice for building muscle, giving you the energy and nutrients needed to fuel muscle growth.9
  • A protein powder like Clear Whey Gainer supports both calorie and protein, but it’s a refreshing option that isn’t creamy or heavy tasting.

Peanut Butter

  • Peanut butter is a nutrient-dense source of protein and calories easy to fit into many diets, including vegan and vegetarian.
  • It also contains many healthy fats, which can help to boost your calorie and protein intake. Both are essential for building muscle.


  • Oats are an awesome source of whole grains, fibre, carbohydrates and plant-based protein to support your training and your overall health.
  • When building muscle, oats can provide plant-based protein and whole grain carbohydrates to help provide the energy your body needs to power through a strength-building workout.

Tone up

Toning up is a common goal. Your goal isn’t to either lose weight or bulk up, but you want to target fat burning and still maintain muscle in the process. The following supplements support maintenance of body composition if consumed as part of a healthy diet and well rounded exercise plan.

Clear Whey Isolate

  • Clear Whey Isolate is an award-winning alternative to regular whey protein. Packed with 20g of protein per serving, it's the best option for when you want a break from creamy shakes. It comes in a variety of refreshing flavours and tastes great any time of day.
  • Clear Whey Isolate provides high quality, refined protein that can support lean body mass even when you’re in a calorie deficit or pushing extra hard at the gym.2 And with next to no sugar or fat, Clear Whey Isolate is perfect for supporting toning goals.

Impact Whey Isolate

  • Impact Whey Isolate is one of the purest protein options on the market, containing 90% protein and 23g of protein per serving. It’s perfect for post workout, as a snack or an addition to a meal any time of day.
  • When you’re trying to tone up without bulking, choosing pure sources of protein without extra carbs and calories is essential. Keeping your protein intake high while not consuming extra calories is key for maintaining your healthy muscle mass.
  • Impact Whey Isolate has many flavour options to meet your protein needs while keeping things interesting.

Soy Protein Isolate

  • If you want a high quality source of protein but follow a vegetarian or vegan diet, Soy Protein Isolate is a great option. It contains 90% protein and 27g per serving, is low in sugar and ideal for a plant-based lifestyle.
  • Vegetarians and vegans who want to support their lean body mass while still working hard at the gym need a pure protein source like Soy Protein Isolate to support their goals. With less than 110 calories per serving, Soy Protein Isolate is an ideal option for those looking to tone up.

Starting out

If you’re new to a supplement routine and aren’t sure where to start, there are some excellent basic options for you to try. From whey protein powder to support your muscle health or a vegan protein blend, you’re sure to find a flavor you enjoy. Whether you replace a less healthy snack with a shake or use it after a gym session, protein powder is perfect for any part of your health journey.

Impact Whey Protein

  • Impact Whey Protein is a premium option with 21g per serving. With up to 40 flavours, there's almost guaranteed to be something you’ll love. Include it in snacks or in a shake any time of the day.
  • If you’re just getting started and want to support your body and overall health, Impact Whey Protein is a no-fuss product that can provide the protein you need to feel energised and ready for whatever the day brings. Easy to mix with water but versatile enough to use in many other recipes, Impact Whey Protein is the perfect product to keep on hand.

Vegan Protein Blend

  • If you’re following a plant-based diet, you probably know that using multiple sources of plant-based proteins can provide the best amino acid profile, and Vegan Protein Blend does just that. Made from pea and fava bean protein isolates, Vegan Protein Blend packs 22g of complete protein per serving.
  • If you’re a plant-based athlete who is just getting started, keeping Vegan Protein Blend as part of your routine can be a great step to support your health and sport-related goals.


We know that training hard can feel good. Some of us crave intense workouts. However, getting adequate recovery is just as important as exercise itself for mind and body. Allowing yourself time to recover and rebuild is fundamental to a successful exercise plan.

Relax gummies

  • Getting quality rest and sufficient sleep for optimal recovery is as important as the work you put in in the gym. Relax Gummies contain a unique blend of vitamins and minerals and natural extracts to support psychological function and minimise oxidative stress.9,10
  • Adequate recovery is just as important as workouts for hitting your goals. If you don’t give your muscles, mind, and body time to relax and repair, you won’t be able to function at your best. Relax Gummies can help when you’re done with the hard work and ready to rest and recharge.

Slow-Release Casein

  • While most of us know how important it is to get enough protein, we might not be considering what type of protein is best for the situation or time of day. While whey protein works quickly after a workout to help your body build and repair,2 casein protein is absorbed more slowly and over a longer period.11
  • When you need to boost your protein intake at the end of the day or you have your workout later in the evening, Slow-Release Casein is the perfect protein option to support the repair and building of your muscles even while you sleep. Optimising muscle recovery overnight using Slow-Release Casein can be the extra boost your muscles need for your next hard workout.

Overnight Recovery Blend

  • A unique all in one blend with 45g of protein per serving, Overnight Recovery Blend combines multiple protein sources along with glutamine for supporting muscle recovery.12
  • A complementary blend of slow-release casein and egg and milk protein, it supports your muscles to repair and rebuild while helping you feel your best for your next workout. Overnight Recovery Blend has all the ingredients to support recovery.

Snack better

Many of us get hungry between meals. Snacking is normal and enjoyable. However, some snacking options are detrimental to gym progress. By planning ahead and keeping some protein packed snacks on hand, you can satisfy your cravings and without hurting your training. High protein snacks like Impact Bar and Double Dough Brownie can satisfy sweet tooth cravings and support your muscles.

Impact Protein Bar

  • Impact Protein Bars contain 45g of protein in an easy, on the go snack. Low in sugar and high in fibre, Impact Protein Bars can support your fitness goals and keep you feeling satisfied any time of day.
  • When you’re on the go it can be difficult to find healthy choices. Keeping a snack that’s high in protein and fibre not only supports your muscles but can also satisfy your cravings and make you less likely to overeat later in the day.2

Layered Bar

  • The Layered Protein Bar tastes like an indulgent treat but contains high quality protein, carbs, and fibre all in one convenient bar. With over 20g of protein and a variety of flavours to choose from, it’s one easy way to satisfy your snack cravings.
  • The six layers of flavour and texture can satisfy any craving without throwing your goals out the window. Focusing on meals and snacks that contain both protein and fibre can keep you feeling satisfied and on your game.

Vegan Double Dough Brownie

  • For anyone who follows a plant-based diet and needs a boost of delicious nutrition on the go. The Vegan Double Dough Brownie is an indulgent treat that combines the best of both cookies and brownies — but with minimal sugar and fat. It contains 13g of plant-based protein along with fibre to keep your body running smoothly.
  • While there are many whey-based protein snack bars available, vegetarians and vegans can appreciate the plant-based nutrition in the Vegan Double Dough Brownie. It’s a high protein snack that can be tossed in your desk drawer, backpack or purse, ready any time you need to up your protein intake for the day.

General health

Supplements and nutrition products aren’t only for gym-goers. A healthy, well rounded diet is important, but sometimes it’s difficult to make sure you’re getting enough of all the nutrients you need to stay fit and healthy through food alone. Vitamin and mineral supplements are great for helping to support overall health.

Multivitamin Gummies

  • Even when we do our best to eat healthily, some days our diet might fall short of the ideal number of vitamins and minerals our bodies need. Multivitamin Gummies contain a blend of 11 vitamins and minerals to help cover any holes in an eating plan.
  • While our bodies are efficient machines, they can’t make all the vitamins and minerals that we need to function at our best. If we don’t get important nutrients from food, it can be helpful to take multivitamins to cover all the bases. Multivitamin Gummies contain those essential nutrients that our bodies need to give us a boost even on days when we might fall short.

Take Home Message

During Impact Week we’ll be offering 45% off great deals on almost everything, so what better time to stock up on supplements? No matter what your goal — losing body weight, bulking, toning up, putting on muscle — there’s plenty of supplements and minerals to support your journey.
