Whey Protein (1, 2)

Whey Protein is among the best studied supplements in the world. It has a high nutritional value, as well as many scientific articles suggesting significant health benefits.Whey protein powder is a complete protein, containing all of the essential amino acids. It is easily digestible protein that is quickly absorbed into the body when compared to other types of protein.

As a dietary supplement, whey protein is widely accepted as the go-to protein for athletes, bodybuilders, and everyone else who would like extra protein in their diet. Whey protein contains high nutritional value, numerous health benefits, is easily digestible, and is often cited as the most important supplement to use by athletes and bodybuilders.

Whey Protein is a great option for promoting muscle growth and maintaining current musculature, when used alongside athletic activities.Whey Protein has also shown the potential to increase the body’s antioxidant defenses.

Whey Protein is an excellent supplement in helping you feel full, which has the potential to reduce hunger and cravings.

  • The macronutrient (protein, carbohydrate, and fat) protein has shown to make you full longer, when compared to the other three.

Whey Protein can assist you in losing weight.

  • Appetite suppression as a result of supplementation can reduce overall food consumption.
  • Encourage maintenance of muscle mass when starting a weight loss journey.
  • Increasing metabolic rate, which will lead to more calories burned throughout the day.

BCAAs (1, 2, 3)

There are 20 different amino acids that make up the proteins that live inside the body. Of these 20 different amino acids there are 9 that are called essential amino acids. These essential amino acids can not be produced by your body. Proper nutrition can supplement these 9 essential amino acids in you diet.

Of those 9 essential amino acids there are three that are known as Branched-Chain Amino Acids, which are known as Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine. These are the three that are often considered the most important of the amino acids to supplement for muscle growth.

In a 2017 study people who supplemented with a drink containing 5.6 grams of BCAA’s post workout had a 22% greater increase in muscle protein synthesis.

Muscle soreness is often cited as one of the worst parts about starting in the gym. Some research on BCAA’s have noted they have the potential to decrease muscle soreness. This happens as a result of a decrease in damages and tears in the muscle, leading to quicker recovery time.

Similar to reducing soreness in the body BCAA’s have shown to be able to help reduce fatigue during a workout. BCAA’s are present in your bloodstream and will be utilized during your workout. Therefore supplementing with them before you workout will assist in maintaining the levels present in your blood.

Studies have shown that participants who supplemented with BCAA’s improved mental focus during exercise, which researchers believe is a result of the fatigue-reducing effect.

BCAA’s can help prevent the breakdown of your muscles.

Muscle Wasting occurs when protein breakdown exceeds protein synthesis. BCAA’s account for about 35% of the essential found in muscle proteins. And approximately 40% of the amino acids required by your body. As a result it is important to supplement the BCAA’s during workouts.

Reason for choosing a 2:1:1 ratio in our BCAAs is a result of research studies that show the BCAA Leucine is often considered the preferred amino acid because it is absorbed more rapidly, which allow it to use more quickly than Isoleucine and Valine.

Pre-Workout (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

Pre-Workout supplements are intended to help you burn more fat, recover faster, or maximize your performance. Pre-Workout is consumed for a variety of reasons, including endurance, strength, focus or muscle growth. Our Pre-Workout has been designed to promote endurance, and focus in the gym.

Caffeine - has been shown to increase energy expenditure by up to 11%, which helps burn extra calories and promote weight loss. A 2004 study shows that caffeine helps increase fat burning directly by up to 29%. It has also been shown to increase performance about 11-12% on average.

Alpha GPC - Can lead to an increase in Human Growth Hormone levels in the body, which enhances the ability to gain muscles. Using Alpha GPC in conjunction with caffeine has shown the ability to increase focus levels and reaction times. Preliminary tests have shown that it Alpha GPC can increase one’s power output by about 14%, where 600mg of Alpha GPC was administered.

L-Citrulline-Malate - Has been shown to increase time to exhaustion during exercise. Giving you the ability to workout for a longer period of time before fatigue begins to set in.

Creatine Monohydrate - It is a natural supplement used to boost athletic performance, it is currently one of the world’s most popular and effective supplements. Benefits include, increased energy production, promote increased muscle growth, improve high-intensity exercise performance.

Yohimbine - has been shown to enhance blood flow and boost energy. A 2006 study of the plant based product Yohimbine could accelerate fat loss. A more recent 2015 study has shown it increases exercise performance, but is even more effective at combating physical fatigue and increasing muscle endurance.

Agmatine Sulfate - has been shown to benefit, heart muscle and brain health, by facilitating the production of nitric oxide for healthy circulation. The nitric oxide synthesis helps blood vessels relax which in turn allows the blood to reach your recently exercised muscles.

Hordenine HCL - Commonly included in many dietary supplements used for athletic performance and weight loss.

Bioperine™ (Black Pepper Extract) - Increases the level of absorption of nutrients within your body. This allows you to get more out of the nutrients you ingest on a daily basis. Some examples of nutrients this may apply to include Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, and others. Increase metabolism by improving thermogenesis. Thermogenesis essentially breaks down fat cells and increases your internal temperature.

Creatine Monohydrate (1, 2)

Creatine is a natural supplement used to boost athletic performance, it is currently one of the world’s most popular and effective supplements. Benefits include, increased energy production, promote increased muscle growth, improve high-intensity exercise performance.

Creatine increases your muscles’ phosphocreatine storage, which helps with the formation of ATP, which is the key molecule your cells use for energy. ATP is broken down to produce energy during strenuous activities. ATP is used faster than your body can reproduce it; Creatine supplementation allows you to produce more ATP to fuel your muscles with energy.

Creatine can assist in adding muscle mass by boosting the formation of proteins that create new muscle fibers. Creatine also has the potential to raise levels of IGF-1, a growth factor, which promotes an increase in muscle mass.

Creatine’s direct role in ATP production can drastically improve high-intensity exercise performance. Creatine improves numerous factors, including strength, sprint ability, muscle endurance, fatigue resistance, muscle mass, and recovery. Taking creatine for as few as 5-7 days has been shown to significantly increase lean body weight and muscle size.

Above all creatine is safe and easy to use, it has been researched for more than 200 years, and numerous studies support its safety for long-term use. Clinical trials lasting up to five years report no adverse effects in healthy individuals.
