Plazma Reactive Pump 1.3kg

Do Brutal Workouts Have Their Limits?

Training at maximum intensity produces the greatest effect, but the demands are so extreme that it can only be done for a week or two before backing off to let the body recover. With Plazma™ that's no longer true.

Being "Unbreakable" In the Gym

By uniquely preloading and driving key nutrients deep into muscle, Plazma™ enables you to perform at and beyond your limits while recovering and gaining so fast you'll be itching to get back in the gym and do it again.

The recovery rate and the increased gains you're going to experience from Plazma™ will be shocking. So, don't hold back in the gym, and train your heart out. You'll completely recover, grow, and be ready for more.

For rapid recovery from intense training and competition — while gaining size and strength at record rates — Plazma™ will not only make you feel unbreakable, you'll be unbreakable.*

*CAUTION: THE TERM "UNBREAKABLE" IS NOT MEANT TO IMPLY OR SUGGEST THAT PLAZMA WILL REDUCE YOUR RISK OF INJURIES. YOU SHOULD ALWAYS USE APPROPRIATE PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES TO MAKE SURE PHYSICAL EXERCISE AND COMPETITION ARE SAFE.

The Plazma™ Formula

Plazma™ contains a unique blend of fast-acting di- and tripeptides that produce biological activities and effects in muscle for performance, growth and recovery that go far beyond other proteins and amino acids.

The formula also contains a special carbohydrate complex that in addition to increasing metabolic rate, drives these di- and tripeptides and other key nutrients into the muscle cell to the point of creating a high-performance pump effect.

How to Use Plazma™

Curcumin 500 60 Capsules

 

NOTICE: 

"Pain don't hurt."

Sure, we get it. It's stoicism in the face of harsh reality. Claiming "pain doesn't hurt" is a nice philosophy to have if you're in a fight or you're getting set to do twenty squats with a weight most mortals couldn't even lift once.

But unfortunately, pain does hurt, especially when you're lying in bed at night trying to find the one position where you're comfortable, find the one muscle or two that you neglected to beat the tar out of during your last workout.

Ask anybody who's serious about weightlifting, and dealing with the aches and pains that come with it. Oh yeah... pain does hurt.


Healthy and Effective

Given the history of most pain relievers, BIOTEST started looking for something that seemed paradoxical: Find a formula that deals with the aches and pains that come from hardcore lifting that's both effective and healthy.

After looking at practically every substance on the planet, the one thing that kept showing up in the research, again and again, was a compound called curcumin. Derived from the spice turmeric, curcumin is a powerful anti-inflammatory compound.

Modern science has subjected curcumin to some rigorous testing for over half a century. It appears that its effects are so diverse that in addition to managing pain, the benefits affect practically every organ system in the body!


COX-2 and Pain

COX-2 is the body's main enzyme responsible for the production of pain and inflammation in muscle and other tissues. Curcumin has not only been shown to be a COX-2 inhibitor, but it's also well tolerated, has no known negative side effects, and it has a lot of healthy benefits, as well.


Healthy Benefits of Curcumin

And here are the findings from laboratory studies showing the healthy benefits of curcumin:

  • Curcumin has been shown to exhibit anti-aromatase properties.
  • Curcumin helps enhance cardiovascular health.
  • Curcumin may reduce body fat.
  • Curcumin has been shown to support healthy cholesterol levels within a normal range.
  • Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant.


So why haven't you heard of curcumin?

Maybe a better question is, why aren't you using it?

Traditionally, there have been a couple of problems with curcumin supplements and the problems are common to most medically useful plant products:

  1. They rarely contain a standardized formulation.
  2. They typically have low bioavailability rates.

Historically, most curcumin formulations simply consisted of a ground up concoction of the whole turmeric plant. As such, the amount of curcumin in a typical dosage was wildly inconsistent and low potency.

Furthermore, as stated, curcumin generally has a poor bioavailability rate. It's rapidly metabolized in the liver and in the intestinal wall.  


BIOTEST's Curcumin

BIOTEST took pure curcumin and combined it with something called piperine. Piperine is a known inhibitor of hepatic and intestinal glucoronidation that's been shown to increase the bioavailability of curcumin by up to 2,000%! The end result is the most powerful curcumin formulation available.

BIOTEST's Curcumin is the first potent and fully natural pain reliever – for those aches and pains that come from hardcore lifting – that's also good for you.

Recommended Use

If you're experiencing muscle soreness as a result of hardcore lifting and all the massages and heating compresses in the world haven't helped, take 2 to 4 capsules of BIOTEST®Curcumin twice per day, as need.

Curcumin is only intended for mild, non-permanent pain. If you have arthritis, or if you're experiencing chronic or serious pain, please see your physician.

To derive all the other health benefits associated with regular use of curcumin, take 2 capsules per day.

Elite Mineral Support 210 Capsules

We all know that living things require minerals for a whole bunch of reasons, among them being life itself. Magnesium alone is responsible for over 300 biochemical reactions in the human body, from maintaining muscle and nerve function to supporting protein synthesis.

Likewise, chromium and vanadium help regulate blood sugar levels and insulin, while zinc and selenium control a host of biological functions ranging from maintaining high Testosterone levels to regulating the immune system.

The trouble lies in getting enough of them into the body, especially if you're an athlete of any kind. 

Tons of research shows that exercise alone can lead to the increased need for certain minerals. Athletes simply lose minerals through urine and sweat, and exercise, especially intense weight training.

Consider that a single bout of intense exercise can deplete magnesium levels for up to 18 days, not to mention the similar effects exercise has on zinc and other crucial minerals.

But all you have to do is eat a balanced diet, right?

Sure, spread some mashed yeast on an avocado or two and wash it down with some guava juice and you're all set.

It's pretty obvious that it doesn't work that way.


Minerals, Minerals Everywhere...
But Not a Milligram to Be Absorbed

The mineral (and vitamin) content of one fruit varies enormously from another fruit of the same variety, based on the area where it was grown, the soil in which it was grown in, the fertilizers used or not used, and the climate and growing season of the area where it was farmed.

Combine that with the fact that most athletes, ironically, in an effort to eat healthy, end up restricting themselves to eating only about 20 different foods a week, making it extremely difficult to eat a diet that has all the essential minerals it needs.

And when it comes to hardcore athletes, it's simply impossible to get an optimal mineral intake without designer supplementation.

You take a mineral formulation, you say?

Theoretically, that's smart... until you take a closer look at how minerals are absorbed by the body.

Unlike vitamins, minerals are inorganic. That means they're not of biological origin. They're related to silver and gold and all the rest of the elements you find on the periodic table.

It makes sense that the body would easily absorb organic things like vitamins, right? Likewise, it should make equal sense that the body doesn't easily absorb inorganic things like minerals very well.

For one thing, most minerals have a natural electric charge, which causes them to interact with other dietary components, making it impossible for the minerals to be absorbed. Equally bad is that these charged minerals can deactivate other minerals and important nutrient factors such as vitamin E, ascorbic acid, certain B vitamins, other minerals, and even certain medications.

As such, the body has to do a little chemical conversion with minerals before it can absorb them. The body has to make the inorganic minerals organic by adding amino acids to the minerals. This process is known as chelation, and it gives minerals a neutral charge, thus allowing them to be absorbed.

Unfortunately, the body isn't always very efficient at chelating minerals, especially those that are contained in most mineral supplements. The minerals in most supplements have a molecular mass that is just too large to travel across the intestinal wall. As a result, they get excreted and the beneficiaries are bacteria and earthworms.

BIOTEST was certainly aware of the problem, but we hadn't yet tackled it in a meaningful way. Granted, BIOTEST had addressed antioxidants and essential phytochemicals with Superfood, but we hadn't yet addressed specific vitamin and/or mineral supplementation, especially when it comes to muscle performance.

The fact is we were busy on a hundred or so other projects.

But that was until BIOTEST's Chief Science Officer, Tim Ziegenfuss, had the problem thrown smack dab in his face.


Pro Football Meets the Atomic World

Dr. Z works with a lot of NFL players, providing them with dietary protocols that include food and supplementation. Now there are very few supplements that football players can take without the NFL freaking out, but they're actually required to use minerals (and vitamins). The trouble is, Tim felt guilty "prescribing" any of the minerals on the market because, well, they all suck. 

So Dr. Ziegenfuss asked Tim Patterson if he could formulate a designer mineral supplement for elite and professional-level athletes. And BIOTEST decided to do minerals right.

They hooked up with the ultimate mineral research group and manufacturer Albion Labs to make what's arguably the world's best mineral supplement, a product we're calling ELITEPROTM Mineral Support.

Why are ELITEPROTM minerals the best?

Because Albion's patented technology produces totally reacted amino-acid chelates. This means that each mineral atom is double-bonded to an amino-acid molecule, thereby making an amino-acid chelate that's not only small enough to pass through the intestine, but small enough to be transported right into the cell itself.

And this isn't just theory or conjecture where some lab guys say, "They must be small enough, you can hardly see 'em." No, these amino acid chelates have been tested by the following methods:

  • X-Ray Diffraction
  • Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectrometry
  • Infrared Spectrometry
  • Fourier-Transformed Infrared Spectrometry

Because of the Albion chelation process, it doesn't matter if you take ELITEPROTM minerals with food or without food. Likewise, you can take them with or without other nutrients – it doesn't matter, the neutral charge of the chelated minerals prevents any cross-reactivity.


Why haven't other companies done this? 

Well, aside from the cost, there's a "problem" with using these super-chelated minerals. Remember how I said that each mineral atom has an amino acid connected to it?

Well, adding one amino-acid molecule to each mineral atom significantly increases the total amount of material, making a daily dose rather large, in terms of number of capsules – at least in comparison to the run-of-the-mill mineral supplements on the market

For example, most fully chelated minerals range between 90 percent and 99 percent amino-acid content, by weight. Which obviously means that these top-level chelates contain between 1 percent and 10 percent mineral content, by weight.

In the case of ELITEPROTM minerals, in order to meet the daily requirements of hard-working athletes, the proper dose requires 7 capsules. Keep in mind that most of the material is comprised of the amino-acid portion of the chelate, and we didn't go overboard on the amounts of minerals.

Of course, taking 7 capsules a day is no big deal to the average athlete who's used to taking capsules. Athletes know better, that ONE pill can't possibly fill all their nutritional needs. It's not realistic.


It's All in the Mineral Recipe

Now that you know what we've done with ElitePro, why we did it, and how we did it, let's take a look at the specific formula.

ELITEPROTM Mineral Support is specifically designed to meet the needs of elite and professional-level athletes. As such, the minerals contained in the formula are the ones they're generally most deficient in because of physical activity and because of the shortcomings of the agricultural business and because of poor dietary choices often made by athletes.

Flameout 90 Softgels

Ask a hundred doctors or scientists about the causes of heart disease and the one thing the vast majority will agree on is that it's a disease of inflammation.

One way this inflammation can characterize itself is by the proliferation and congregation of white blood cells known as macrophages. These macrophages play a major role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, which is characterized by plaques that reduce blood flow and cause further damage to blood vessels and the heart.

Yikes!

Asthma too, like heart disease, is also a disease characterized by inflammation. In fact, a whole bunch of chronic ailments that affect Americans are caused by inflammation. Think you're immune? Tell me, have you ever experienced tendonitis? That's simply chronic inflammation.

How about just plain muscle soreness? Training damages muscle. Muscles get inflamed. Inflammation promotes more damage. The more damage, the more inflammation. It's a vicious, inflamed cycle, and how the heck are muscles supposed to grow optimally if they're constantly inflamed? They can't.

It's a fact. America is in the midst of an inflammation epidemic!.


Direct Link to Diet

A lot of it can be traced directly to our diets. Humans originally consumed a natural diet of 1 to 1 or 1 to 2 ratio of omega-6 fatty acids to omega-3 fatty acids. (Just to refresh your memory, omega-6s are those fatty acids found in just about every packaged food you can find, in addition to those cooking oils that permeate your cupboard, while omega-3s are those that we typically associate with salmon and other cold water fish.).

Unfortunately, because of extreme food processing, raising cattle on corn instead of grass, avoidance of fish in the diet, and plain ol' greed and ignorance, the modern ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 is more like 20 or 30 to 1.

That's a recipe for disaster.


Good and Bad Eicosanoids

At its most basic level, the problem lies with these primitive, rudimentary hormones called eicosanoids. These hormones are involved in pretty much everything our body does and if we ingest a lot of omega-6 fatty acids, we get eicosanoids made from omega-6s. Trouble is, omega-6 eicosanoids are really pro-inflammatory. The body makes eicosanoids from omega-3 fatty acids, too, but these eicosanoids are very weakly inflammatory, if at all. As such, simply shifting the diet towards omega-3's can do remarkable things for your health and performance.

Sure, you all know about fish oils and most of you, if you don't take them already, have been strongly considering adding them to your daily diet. Unfortunately, most of today's fatty acid supplements are simply made by some guy named Olaf who squeezes fish and forces the oil to drip into a bottle. Okay, I'm exaggerating, but not by much.


Most Fish Oil Supplements are Worthless

Most fatty acid supplements are underpowered, ill thought-out, prohibitively expensive and, by default, made for women.

Just as bad, the fish oil you're using is almost certainly beneficial to women instead of men. I'm sure you've all heard of DHA and EPA, which are two of the omega-3 fatty acids researchers are most interested in. They're simply elongated and desaturated versions of alpha-linoleic acid. Unfortunately, every fatty acid supplement we're aware of contains a lot more EPA than DHA because fish naturally contain more EPA than DHA.

That's fine for women because the biosynthesis of DHA is a lot higher in women than it is in men. Most researchers think it has to do with sex hormones, presumably estrogens. A strong stimulus with estrogens in lab subjects induces an increase in DHA status, while a Testosterone stimulus induces a decrease in DHA.

And men also have lower amounts of DHA – despite eating the same amount of fatty acids as women – but they have a higher incidence of heart attack (and presumably, other inflammatory conditions). As such, men need more DHA than women! Several studies have confirmed that fact.

DHA, in addition to having a anti-arrhythmic effect, reduces blood pressure and according to at least one study, even increases HDL (the good cholesterol) by 29% while EPA reduces it by 6.7%!.


Flameout™ Inflammation Scavenger

Flameout™ contains highly pure pharmaceutical-grade DHA and EPA that are so concentrated that you'd need a prescription to get them in some parts of the world, making it by far the premier DHA/EPA supplement on the market. And it's the first one designed with men in mind, containing a much higher amount of DHA than EPA.

(Even though Flameout™ was formulated to offset the DHA/EPA "gap" in men women can get greatly benefit from it, too.)

Since Flameout™ was designed to fight inflammation – inflammation in the heart, lungs, tendons, muscles, and anywhere and everywhere else in the body – rather than just use DHA and EPA, we included another fatty acid that's a very potent anti-inflammatory agent all on its own.

CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid)

Studies show that CLA (the 9-cis, trans-11 isomer and the 10-trans, 12-cis isomer) reduce prostaglandin release through the inhibition of cyclooxygenase-2, otherwise known as COX-2. That's right, CLA has been shown to be a potent COX-2 inhibitor, much like the potent drugs doctors use to fight arthritis (yet another inflammatory disease), without the deleterious side effects.

Suffice it to say, Flameout™ has a good chance of icing your inflammation problems, but there are so many additional benefits of using Flameout.™


Body-Composition Effects

Omega-3s burn body fat in 3 different ways. First off, they allow the body to burn fat in situations where fat burning is turned off, such as after a high-carb meal or after high-intensity exercise (where the body preferentially burns glycogen).

Secondly, high amounts of omega-3s increase insulin sensitivity. If your body is sensitive to insulin, less insulin is produced after a meal, which means less fat is stored. Similarly, if the body is sensitive to insulin, and the hormone is properly managed, more stored fat is released and incinerated each day.

Thirdly, omega-3s increase the heat of your cellular "furnaces", which are otherwise known as the mitochondria and the peroxisomes. Omega-3s make these organelles burn more and more energy, thus turning you into a fat-burning machine.

Lastly, there's also evidence that omega-3s might also increase the amount of leptin produced by the body (high leptin means decreased hunger and an increased metabolic rate).


Flameout™ Recap

So to recap, here are the potential benefits of Flameout™ use:

  • Decreased systemic inflammation (thus possibly warding of heart disease, asthma, arthritis, macular degeneration, and a host of other diseases or maladies).
  • Significant decreases in levels of body fat through increased insulin sensitivity and increased metabolism. (This increased insulin sensitivity may also prevent Type II diabetes.)
  • Decreased muscle soreness and tendonitis. 

So, do you want to end inflammation and give yourself the best health insurance policy available, all while changing your body composition for the better?

There's no doubt about it, Flameout™ is the most potent anti-inflammatory fatty-acid blend ever produced, and it's formulated especially for men.

Flameout™ contains the most concentrated and purest fatty acids available – purified by molecular distillation and stringently tested for PCBs, dioxins, mercury, and other heavy-metal contaminants – and blended with high amounts of both functional isomers of the fatty acid CLA.

Rez-V 60 Capsules

Rez-V Possible Benefits:

  • Acts as both an estrogen antagonist and an aromatase inhibitor.
  • Increases Testosterone without causing testicular shutdown.
  • Promotes blood vessel health and cardiovascular health.
  • Exhibits prostate protective effects.
  • Exhibits anti-aging effects.
  • Promotes fat loss.
  • Has anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Acts as an anti-oxidant.
  • Promotes joint health.
  • Shows anti-fungal and anti-viral effects.
  • Acts as a liver protectant.

Whether you're interested in increased Testosterone and decreased estrogen, along with reduced levels of body fat, or just want to be healthier and possibly live longer, Rez-V has got to be part of your daily supplement arsenal.

Many athletes spend a lot of time trying to increase testosterone. Trouble is, when increasing testosterone some of it converts into estrogen in a process called aromatization, which takes place mostly in fat tissue and muscle.

Unfortunately, estrogen does things to us that we don't like. Estrogen can cause an increase in body fat, a reduction of muscle mass, and even a decrease in strength, not to mention making you want to cry at the end of every episode of Grey's Anatomy.

It can even cause one of the most embarrassing conditions known to man: gynecomastia, or male breasts.

Yikes.

To make things worse, increased levels of estradiol can then enter the bloodstream and travel to the pituitary and signal it to stop producing the hormone that prompts the testicles to produce Testosterone.

That's right, estrogen is petty. It wants to keep Testosterone levels from going higher.

Furthermore, a lot of us believe that estrogen plays more of a role in promoting prostate cancer than the other Testosterone metabolite that generally gets most of the blame, DHT.

If only our body's own production of estrogen were the only problem! Unfortunately, modern man is besieged by chemicals in the environment that mimic estrogen. These phony estrogens, known as xenoestrogens, exist in plastic bowls and bottles, air fresheners, pesticides, even toothpaste. They're literally all over the place and far too many find their way into your body every single day.

These xenoestrogens can have negative effects on the immune system, mucking up memory, behavior, and even the ability to learn, not to mention the effects caused by regular run-of-the-mill estrogen that I mentioned above.

While there are plenty of substances that combat estrogen, it's a tricky business. The thing is, men need some estrogen to maintain the health of blood vessels. Too little estrogen and the things get all brittle and inelastic. Not good.

So how do you manage estrogen so that you're able to keep Testosterone levels optimally high, body fat low, and strength high while still maintaining blood vessel health?

There's a substance in nature that's been the subject of a whole lot of worldwide research lately. It's called resveratrol and it's a polyphenol found in such foods as peanuts, grapes (and consequently, wine), and mulberries.

Resveratrol has a whole lot of good things going for it, but the one we're most interested in has to do with estrogen. You see, resveratrol acts as a potent estrogen antagonist (while also acting as an agonist in some tissues, similar to the drugs clomiphene and tamoxifen).

In higher concentrations, it acts as an aromatase inhibitor. That means that it stops the body from whittling away at your Testosterone.

This is cool because if a substance stops Testosterone from being converted to estrogen or estradiol, it not only prevents the nasty effects of estrogen (loss of muscle and strength and accrual of body fat), but it increases your level of Testosterone, leading to additionalstrength and muscle!

What's equally important is that it won't cause your Testicles to go on vacation, i.e. shrink. The testicles don't get a signal from the pituitary to shut down because estrogen has been curtailed!

There's a lot of good data in animal models to back this up. Studies have demonstrated a resveratrol-fueled increase in Luteinizing Hormone and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (the pituitary hormones that signal the testicles to start producing Testosterone) that's 2.7 times greater than placebo.

Additionally, resveratrol caused a 76% increase in sperm count, all of this without any adverse effects. (1)

The aromatase inhibition is thought to occur through two mechanisms: reducing the expression of aromatase, as well as binding to the enzyme and preventing it from doing its dirty work.

And, unlike conventional aromatase inhibitors, resveratrol doesn't cause a decline in endothelial (blood vessel) function. In fact, it seems to improve it! (2-12)

And remember those nasty xenoestrogens I mentioned earlier? Resveratrol seems to occupy the receptor sites, or biological "parking lots," so that these xenoestrogens can't "park" in their spots. That's good.

Rhodiola Rosea 60 Capsules

What is Rhodiola?

Rhodiola rosea (Rhodiola) thrives in extremely cold environments with intense sunlight, which explains why those Northern-dwelling Vikings were so familiar with it.

Rhodiola is one of those high-performance herbs that, in addition to having loads of "street cred," also has some pretty interesting science behind it.

Studies have shown that users can train longer, at higher levels, without overtraining. And it does this in a way that's different than conventional recovery models.

In 1968, Soviet pharmacologists determined that Rhodiola met all of the necessary criteria for classification as an adaptogen, which, as mentioned earlier, literally means that it helps the body adapt to – and resist – physical, chemical, and environmental stress. 

Forty years and over 180 research studies later, a growing body of Western scientists and physicians are beginning to study and consequently prescribe this "super herb."

Traditional uses of the plant include stimulating the nervous system, improving depression, enhancing work performance, improving sleep, eliminating fatigue, and preventing high-altitude sickness.

Although more research is necessary to refine these findings, recent clinical trials on standardized extracts of Rhodiola rosea have reported impressive improvements in performance, immune function, cognitive function, and most commonly, a pronounced improvement in mood and a reduction in mental fatigue.

If you know anything about Biotest at all, you know that we hold a deep respect for herbs with medicinal properties, known collectively as herbal pharmaceuticals.

While the unschooled cynic might be quick to categorize all herbs as grass clippings coveted solely by sandal-wearing tree huggers, scientists know better.

In fact, a huge percentage of modern-day prescription drugs are merely fancy-named versions of these "grass clippings."

Biotest has pretty much been a pioneer in herb-based sports nutrition, being the first to truly understand and develop the definitive versions of Tribulus terrestris, Eurycoma longifolia, Vitex agnus castus, and many others.

However, there's another class of herb that's alternately been a source of great excitement and great frustration to us for a long time. This class of herbs is known as adaptogens.

Adaptogens, as the name might suggest, are compounds that literally help the body adapt to – and resist – physical, chemical, and environmental stress.

This article will describe exactly how valuable that property is, but you can probably imagine for yourself how useful an adaptogen might be in a variety of situations.

One adaptogen in particular has been the focus of a lot of our research over the years and the cause of a lot of torn-out hair.

This particular herb, Rhodiola rosea (Rhodiola), truly warrants the label of "super herb." In fact, it's been on the short list of "must have" supplements kept by our smartest guys.

Unfortunately, there were problems. We'd recommend Rhodiola to competitive cyclists and intense gym rats, and the results were hit and miss; some athletes would rave about Rhodiola and some would report no perceived benefits. To make matters worse, regardless of the brand, there was a huge inconsistency between bottles. In other words, just because brand X worked once didn't mean that it'd work again. We simply couldn't find a brand to recommend that produced consistent results.

This inconsistency in the field was matched with inconsistency in the lab. While the scientific community's studied the herb for years, they couldn't come up with consistent results, either. As such, much of the published literature on Rhodiola was noncommittal; they didn't know if it worked or it didn't!

The conclusion was that one batch often varied enormously (in terms of potency) from the next.

But all that's changed. We know where in the plant the highest concentrations of rosavinsexist, and the process of extraction has gotten better and better, thus ensuring consistency and enabling us, finally, to come out with a product that matches Biotest's incredibly high standards.

Yes, I know, Rhodiola isn't a new supplement by any means; even the Vikings were drawn to Rhodiola to enhance their legendary physical strength and endurance.

Viking

And no, Biotest hasn't just "run out of ideas" and been forced to dredge through the relics of pharmaceutical history to come up with a new product.

Rather, this version of Rhodiola is so pure, so potent, so desirable in comparison to any previous version or extraction that we might very easily make a case for it being a new creation on God's earth.

Bold words? Maybe, but let's take a look at this "new" adaptogen.

How Does Rhodiola Affect Humans?

Rhodiola boosts physical and mental performance, along with enhancing recovery from intense-resistance exercise. Broadly speaking, these beneficial effects result from the interplay of several physiological mechanisms.


Rhodiola rosea...

  • Enhances mitochondrial function, and therefore influences substrate oxidation and turnover.
  • Reduces exercise-induced lipid and protein oxidation.
  • Facilitates the biosynthesis, activation, and transport of neurotransmitters in the brain, particularly the opioids (i.e., beta-endorphins).
  • Influences the levels of biogenic monoamines, such as serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine in the cerebral cortex, brain stem, and hypothalamus.
  • Modulates the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis.


How is BIOTEST® Rhodiola rosea Extract Different?

Rhodiola extracts vary substantially in potency and purity. Most common are extracts that contain 1% to 3% total rosavins. Occasionally, you might find 9% or even 10%. 

However, as mentioned earlier, this inconsistency has historically been the problem with Rhodiola, the problem that prevented it from becoming the supplement superstar it really is.

BIOTEST® Rhodiola rosea, on the other hand, contains on average 16% total rosavins (label claim is 15%), making it the most potent and most-pure Rhodiola extract available anywhere.


How Do I Use Rhodiola?

Clinical doses are based upon receiving 6 mg to 12 mg of total rosavins per day (which would contain 3-6 mg of rosavin), taken on an empty stomach. 

Recent studies suggest moderate daily doses to be more effective than higher doses, at least in healthy humans. And doses exceeding 60 mg of total rosavins are not recommended as they're associated with irritability and insomnia. 

As with other adaptogens, administration of Rhodiola rosea should coincide with stressful situations only – athletic or otherwise – and periodic intervals of non-use should be observed.

In other words, Rhodiola should be treated like a medicine. Simply, when the "patient" is cured, he stops taking the medicine. 

Put it this way: once Rhodiola has enabled you to adapt to physical or environmental stress (training, dieting, etc.), you can't adapt any further. That's when you cycle off Rhodiola.


How Do I Cycle Rhodiola?

Following an on/off-cycling protocol of 3:1 seems to work best.

Superfood 140g

 

Superfood is a highly innovative, exotic, one-of-a-kind blend of 18 berries, fruits, and vegetables. Nothing else like it exists. Nothing about it is "off the shelf." It's very potent and highly effective at delivering a gigantic profile of nutrients that would take decades to begin to understand and a book to fully describe – all naturally occurring from plants.

Nutritionists think they've got it all figured out.

Nutritionists tell you to take this vitamin and that vitamin, and they tell you to make sure you take your antioxidants to sop up free radicals (usually without knowing what free radicals really are).

How do they know what you should take? How do they know how much you should take?

Simple! They feed various nutrients to cultured cells and see if they continue to multiply, or they conduct studies with animals or small numbers of humans. The trouble is, you and I are more than just cells in a dish. Biological systems are incredibly complex and figuring out which particular blends of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants would require controlled studies on hundreds if not thousands of humans (not lab animals) who were kept locked up for years and ate only what was fed to them.

It's hardly practical. Regardless, nutritionists make these blanket recommendations about nutrition and when some study comes out that indicates high doses of certain antioxidants like Vitamins A and E actually cause cancer instead of prevent it, they hem and haw, point to the door and say something like, "Hey, isn't that Bradgelina?" When you turn to look, they run out the door.

Come to think of it, the whole thing would make a pretty good commercial for Southwest Airlines "Wanna Get Away?" program.

Let me show you a quick example. Take a look at the following list of antioxidants:

4-Terpineol, alanine, anethole, apigenin, ascorbic acid, beta carotene, caffeic acid, camphene, carvacrol, chlorogenic acid, chrysoeriol, eriodictyol, eugenol, ferulic acid, gallic acid, gamma-terpinene isocholorgenic acid, isoeugenol, isothymonin, kaempferol, labiatic acid, lauric acid, linalyl acetate, luteolin, methionine, myrcene, myristic acid, naringenin, oleanolic acid, p-coumoric acid, p-hydroxy-benzoic acid, palmitic acid, rosmarinic acid, selenium, tannin, thymol, tryptophan, ursolic acid, vanillic acid.

That's not the label of the new vitamin from the One-A-Day people. Rather, they're the antioxidants found in a sprig of thyme, which is the spice your momma sprinkles on meatloaf.

Kinda' complex, huh?

Yet garden-variety nutritionists prefer to study only a select number of antioxidants and make blanket recommendations.

How do they know there aren't complex interactions between them and other chemicals or nutrients? How do they know the healthful benefits of any particular antioxidant don't depend on being simultaneously ingested with one, two, three, or thirty different antioxidants or phytochemicals?

They don't, bubba, they don't. 

The Vitamin-Pill Fraud

Biotest Performance Superfood

I'll confess that we at Biotest wrestled with the issue for years. We knew that a good vitamin-mineral complex would sell well, but couldn't in good conscience invent anything we didn't want to use ourselves. Neither has anyone else in the entire world invented a powder, pill, tablet, or capsule we feel good about.

You might be surprised to hear this, but we're not aware of anyone in the Biotest family that takes a multivitamin. None of us believe in them. The science is too haphazard.

As such we've always preferred to get our vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and various phytochemicals from fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately, you know as well as we do that it's hard to ingest anywhere near the proper amounts of fruits and vegetables every day. Who's got time to eat 4 servings of fruits and 4 servings of vegetables every single day?

Most people are lucky if they can choke down a serving of broccoli or spinach a week.

Furthermore, the quality of soil varies enormously from farm to farm, and so does, accordingly, the nutritional content of the fruit and vegetables that are grown in that soil.

We're incredibly proud to tell you that we've got it figured out.

Enter Biotest's Superfood.

We discarded the notion of coming out with a vitamin pill composed of conventional, lab manufactured vitamins and minerals. Instead, we've chosen the whole-food route.

The Perfect Superfood

Biotest Performance Superfood

What we've done is taken 18 incredibly potent, freeze-dried super extracts of WHOLE fruits and vegetables and combined them in what we believe is the perfect superfood. We chose each for their almost drug-like properties, and put them together in one incredibly potent, incredibly concentrated, incredibly easy-to-use powdered supplement. 

No fillers, no extra flavoring agents, no sweeteners, nothing extra – just pure superfood.

Take a look at the ingredients first and then I'll tell you why we chose them and what exactly we did with them:

Berries

  • Wild Blueberry (1.5% anthocyanin)
  • Orange (40% vitamin C)
  • Raspberry (20% allagic acid, 0.7% anthocyanins)
  • Strawberry
  • Acai Berry (1.5% total phenolic acids, 1% anthocyanins)
  • Coffee Berry (50% total phenolic acids)
  • Goji Berry
  • Pomegranate (40% ellagic acid)

Vegetables

  • Broccoli Sprout (5000 ppm sulforophane)
  • Kale
  • Spinach (700 ppm lutein)
  • Wasabi (20% glucosinolates)
  • Wild Yam (20% diosgenin)
  • Green Tea (95% total polyphenols, 65% total catechins, 40% EGCG)

Other Fruits

  • Apple
  • Mango
  • Passion fruit
  • Watermelon (1000 ppm lycopene)

While you're no doubt familiar with many of these fruits and vegetables, some might be a mystery. We based our choices on a number of factors:

  • A broad spectrum of carotenoids and phytochemicals, including the prostate protective lycopene and the vision protective lutein.
  • Vegetables that contain estrogen-fighting indoles.
  • Vegetables that have potent cancer-fighting ability.
  • The major factor in many of our choices, however, was their incredibly powerful antioxidant capabilities as measured by something called the ORAC scale.

ORAC Scale Measures Antioxidant Potency

The ORAC scale is a standardized test used by the USDA to measure the Total Antioxidant Potency of foods and nutritional supplements. The ORAC provides a precise way of measuring the power of specific foods or supplements to neutralize free radicals in the body. The term stands for "Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, and the measurement is expressed as ORAC units per 100 grams of a given compound.

For instance, the USDA determined an "average serving of fruits AND vegetables" has an ORAC rating of between 400 and 500.

As you might guess, all fruits and vegetables aren't created equal. Some, like coffee berry, acai berry, and goji berry, while not exactly household commodities, are off the chart on the ORAC scale.

So just what is the ORAC rating of just 5 grams (about 1 teaspoon) of Biotest's Superfood? Are you sitting down?

5,315 ORAC

That means that just ONE TEASPOON of Biotest's Superfood is equivalent to eating between 10 and 12 average servings of fruits and vegetables!

Freeze Drying is the Key

I know, you're skeptical. How can one teaspoon be equivalent to that many servings of fruits and vegetables?

Actually, it's not implausible at all. Each of the ingredients in Biotest's Superfood is freeze dried.

Freeze drying is a process by which nothing but the water is removed from the fruits and vegetables. Each product is individually quick frozen so all water turns to solid ice. It's then subjected to warm temperature and a vacuum so that the water turns to vapor and is essentially sucked out of the fruit or vegetable, leaving everything intact.

That means the pigments and phytochemicals have been well preserved. The product retains the identical phytochemical content, enzymatic activity, and bioactivity of fresh products. Furthermore, freeze-dried products have the longest ambient shelf life of any known drying process.

But what's equally important is what Biotest's Superfood product doesn't contain:

  • No added sweetener, natural or artificial
  • No food coloring
  • No added flavoring
  • No allergy-inducing grasses
  • No Testosterone-lowering herbs (ie, licorice and bilberry)
  • No seaweed, algae, or other faddish ingredients
  • No added chemicals of any kind.

In fact, you'll find nothing in Superfood but sweet, fresh, nutrient-laden fruits and vegetables!

The Mild Berry-Tea Flavor Mixes with Anything

Because we didn't add in flavoring or sweetening agents, maybe you're thinking that the product tastes like grass clippings. Relax. Superfood tastes like a mild berry tea; there's no need to mask the flavor.

In fact, many of us at Biotest just put a teaspoon of the product (about 5 grams) into a glass of water and drink it down. However, you can just as easily put it in a protein shake, glass of juice, or even on your food; it's that easy.

While Superfood is incredibly valuable all on its own in ensuring your health and longevity, we recommend throwing a teaspoon of it into your post-workout drink as that's likely the time when you need the most anti-oxidant protection. 

Otherwise, use it as you might have once used those obsolete vitamin and mineral tablets: one teaspoon with breakfast or at bedtime.

Economics of Being Healthy

One more thing, just for you skeptics: you're probably wondering why someone hasn't done this before. Simple.

Expense.

How much? Let's put it this way, if Biotest were to sell Superfood to retailers who'd then apply their own mark-up, a month's supply of Superfood would likely cost about a hundred dollars!

However, given that Superfood will be available only through the Testosterone and Biotest websites, we sell direct to you, the customer. That's why it's possible for us to sell Superfood for a much lower price!

Think about how much it would cost you to buy 10 to 12 servings of vegetables at the store every day. Think of the time it would take to prepare 10 to 12 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Think of the gas . . . gastric upset from ingesting 10 to 12 servings of fruits and vegetables a day.

If you take all that into consideration, it's easy to see that the price of Superfood is a tremendous value.

Biotest® Superfood Changed My Life

On a personal note, this stuff has changed my life. The rest of my diet was spot on. I ate the proper amount of meals a day; I ate the proper amount of protein each day; I monitored my carbohydrate intake to match my particular goals, but I was woefully lacking in the "health" department. 

I didn't like many vegetables. I found eating fruit a pain, not to mention messy. Beyond that, every time I did get the gumption to steam some vegetables, I limited myself to the two or three I found palatable. Despite my professed wisdom, I was no doubt woefully lacking in scores of vitamins, minerals, and specific phytonutrients. I was no doubt ravaged by free radicals. My muscle-building ability, not to mention my overall health, was no doubt compromised.

No more. We nailed the vitamin and mineral thing.

With Biotest's Superfood, we've figured out the last piece of the nutritional puzzle.

Alpha Male 74 Tablets

 

The Alpha Male™ formula is chock-full of all of the most potent Testosterone-boosting compounds we have in our vast arsenal, none of which can be found anywhere else on the planet.

In fact, you could call Alpha Male the ultimate male "elixir." So, if you're interested in maximizing T and reducing body fat and feeling like kicking ass and taking names, Alpha Male™ Maximum Strength Pro-Testosterone formula is the animal for you.

Unless you've been living under your momma's skirt for the last decade, you already know BIOTEST has three Testosterone-boosting extracts that are the benchmarks for the sports-supplement industry:

  • Tribulus terrestris
  • Vitex agnus castus
  • Eurycoma longifolia
  • Carbolin 19®

Each of these compounds is super concentrated to achieve maximum potency. Furthermore, BIOTEST evaluates every batch of raw material to ensure that each finished bottle performs at the highest possible standard.

Although in some aspects similar, these compounds achieve their T-boosting effects through different mechanisms. Even though no one knows for certain how they actually work, the predominant theories are as follows:

Tribulus

Tribulus serves as a Luteinizing-hormone secretagogue (LHS). In other words, it causes the release of Luteinizing hormone, which in turn signals the testes to produce more Testosterone. And of all the T-boosting compounds on the market, Tribulus is the most powerful.

The brutal reality is, however, most Tribulus products on the market are either completely inactive or inferior herbal substitutes that are brainlessly spiked with protodioscin. Either way, you get the same result – nothing!

You can't simply take Chinese, or Indian, or "German" plant material and simply spike it with protodioscin to make real Testosterone-boosting Tribulus out of it. That's too easy. That's too dishonest. That would be like packaging spiked lawn clippings and claiming it's real Tribulus.

Genuine Tribulus that boosts Testosterone is only found in Bulgaria and contains many powerful compounds that are vital for results. And all have to be present in precise amounts in order to achieve the maximum effect.

BIOTEST Tribulus contains the most potent, full-spectrum extraction of real, Testosterone-boosting Bulgarian Tribulus in the world. Each of the active compounds is present in the required amounts for maximum effects. In fact, BIOTEST Tribulus is rated #1 in the world by ChromaDex, which is world renowned for its analytics of herbal materials.

Vitex

Vitex also works as an LHS, but it also acts as an anti-progesterone and anti-prolactin agent, lowering progesterone and prolactin. Progesterone and prolactin are particularly nasty hormones, in that they cause – much more than estrogen – storage of body fat and mental depression. Prolactin can even cause lactation in men. And, by lowering progesterone and prolactin – just like lowering estrogen – you'll increase Testosterone through various feedback mechanisms.

Eurycoma

Eurycoma imparts its effects by selectively controlling the conversion of DHEA and other naturally occurring androgens into Testosterone. In fact, it even works when the testes are non-responsive to Luteinizing hormone. As long as the substrate hormones are present (and they're present in everyone), Eurycoma works.

Carbolin 19®

Carbolin 19® is a carbonate ester of a naturally occurring diterpene called forskolin. Don't confuse this material with the herbal extract Coleus forskohlii! We're using a carbonate ester of pure forskolin, which means it's a highly pure, single compound.

We extracted and purified forskolin to pharmaceutical-grade standards and further refining it into a carbonate ester. This reaction extended the duration of action from four hours to 12 hours. The carbonate gave us an increase in bioavailability as well, but it wasn't enough. So, we incorporated the compound into our Self-MicroemulsifyingNutrient Delivery System, which improved bioavailability to the point of being drug-like.

One of the members of our research group conducted a university study on an earlier, less-potent version of Carbolin 19®. The findings show that pure forskolin literally equals the anabolic effects of Anavar. But that's not all. 

Unlike Anavar, Carbolin 19® is not liver toxic and is not receptor mediated. This means that you can take it year-round without becoming liver toxic, that its effects will not diminish over time, and that you will not suppress natural testosterone production. In fact, there's indication that Carbolin 19® helps support the natural production of testosterone.

Bottom line, Carbolin 19® can deliver better results than Anavar but without any of the negative side effects, making it the perfect anabolic bridge! 

Here's a chart that compares pharmaceutical-grade forskolin to Anavar. The data for Anavar came from a compilation of two peer-reviewed studies found in the scientific literature. The forskolin data is from the university study that's pending publication.

Study Comparison:   Anavar v. Forskolin

Percent Males 100% 100%
Study ResultsAnavarForskolin
Lean Mass Change + 3.9 lb + 8.2 lb
Fat Mass Change - 7.0 lb - 9.9 lb

As you can see, forskolin blew away Anavar, both in lean mass gained and fat mass lost! And remember, the version of forskolin used in the study is much weaker than Carbolin 19®! In addition to being more potent, Carbolin 19® has a longer active life and a substantially greater bioavailability.

Alpha GPC 125ml

Driving a bench press PR into lockout... powering a bone-crushing squat out of the hole... smashing through sticking points like they don't exist...

Those experiences occur, but never often enough. And, although very gratifying, improvements in training never seem to come fast enough. We want gains and we want them now – and we want something more every time we go into the gym!

You may not ever be totally satisfied with the rate of your progress, but you'd be a whole lot happier if you mastered a key component to weight-training success – explosive force!

Potentiate high-threshold motor units (fast-twitch fibers) within a muscle and – BOOM! – you've got explosive force. Activation of high-threshold motor units is the most-important factor in maximizing muscle growth and strength. Every advanced strength and power athlete centers his training and competition around it.

The good news is, now there's a way to activate these sometimes-lazy fast-twitch fibers that's a whole lot easier and a bunch more predictable.

Do this one little thing, about an hour before training, and get an automatic 14% increase in peak force during training!

Not only that, you double growth hormone (GH) levels at the time you need it most, posttraining.

The whole point is, the entire training process is greatly enhanced – you'll make faster and greater gains in muscle, strength, and overall improvements in body composition!

The "thing" we're talking about is a compound called alpha-GPC (alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine). And TMUSCLE's chief scientist, Dr. Tim Ziegenfuss, actually proved these findings in a study that'll be published within the year.

Not only that, Tim Patterson and Dr. Z have been experimenting with alpha-GPC on several of TMUSCLE's elite-level bodybuilders. 

One of these bodybuilders is our very own Christian Thibaudeau, who smashed an overhead press PR by a whopping 30 pounds! And he did this on his very first dose! 

(We'll reveal more about this group, as well as their training, in the months ahead.)

It's also important to note that these effects do not diminish over time. In other words, your 100th dose works as well (maybe even better) as your first dose.


Alpha-GPC the Compound

Alpha-GPC is a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Clinically, it's been used both orally and intramuscularly to treat Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, stroke, transient ischemic attack (TIA), as well as to improve memory, cognitive function, and learning.

Clearly, you don't have to be a physician to see that it has profound effects on the nervous system. However, prior to Dr. Ziegenfuss, not many researchers thought to test alpha-GPC on advanced athletes.

On the other hand, choline, which is a precursor to alpha-GPC, has been tested on athletes and shown to improve athletic performance and endurance.

The thinking is this: 

Acetylcholine is a major neurotransmitter that activates muscle contraction. Increasing the amount of acetylcholine (which is depleted by exercise) in cells can therefore keep muscles contracting longer and harder.

Simple really.

However, alpha-GPC is a much better precursor to acetylcholine and, unlike choline, alpha-GPC raises GH levels substantially. 

That's what made this compound so intriguing to the TMUSCLE research department, including Dr. Tim Ziegenfuss, who decided to test it on strength athletes.


What Did the ALPHA-GPC Studies Show?

Dr. Ziegenfuss recruited experienced weight trainers and set out to test the effects of alpha-GPC on GH levels and explosive force, using a randomized, placebo-controlled, cross-over design.

We can't get into the precise protocol before the study is officially published, but we can tell you the highlights.


Study Protocol Highlights

Subjects consumed a dose of alpha-GPC 90 minutes prior to exercise.

They were then asked to perform 3 sets of bench-press throws using 50% of their pre-determined 1RM. 

Rep speed was measured using the Ballistic Measurement System (BMS).

Blood draws were taken 0, 5, 15, 30, 60, 90, and 120 minutes post-exercise.


Bench-Press Force Findings

Alpha-GPC increased peak force by 14% over and above the placebo value.


Growth Hormone Findings

Alpha-GPC doubled GH levels over the placebo value, post training.


How Does ALPHA-GPC Work?

Bottom line, alpha-GPC works. What isn't exactly clear is how it works, but Dr. Z has narrowed it down to two theories:

Either way, it really doesn't matter. Alpha-GPC quickly makes athletes more powerful and much more resistant to fatigue.

And being able to recruit more fast-twitch fibers, repeatedly, set after set after set, you'll build muscle and gain strength at a faster rate.

But let's not forget about the other powerful effect of alpha-GPC, which might lead to even greater muscle growth. I'm talking about doubling GH, of course.

Such a profound increase in GH levels – every time you train – can have a significant effect on fat loss, not to mention hypertrophy.


How to Use Alpha-GPC 

Take 900 mg 90 minutes prior to training or competition.

L-Leucine 300g


Leucine Structured Peptides

250% Greater Muscle Growth!


Structured Peptides are absorbed faster, utilized better, and produce 250 percent greater muscle growth than free-form amino acids.

BIOTEST® Leucine and BCAA Structured Peptides are produced from peptide enhanced whey-protein isolate, utilizing a three-step process:

  1. Whey-protein isolate is hydrolyzed into very small peptide forms using a combination of selective enzymes (aminopeptidases and proteases) to break apart targeted leucine peptide and BCAA-peptide bonds.
  2. Afterward, small peptide formations are extracted from the hydrolyzed whey by passing the mixture through a series of filters, ending with nanofiltration.
  3. Next, the nano-mixture undergoes a final reaction phase to further enhance its total leucine and BCAA content.

The end result is a highly refined mixture of leucine and BCAA di- and tripeptides that provides the body with the greatest effects from leucine/ BCAA supplementation.


Di- and Tripeptide Science

 

  • Unlike regular (free-form) amino acids, the uptake of di- and tripeptides is achieved through a very specific, high-capacity intestinal transporter (PEPT-1), which can lead to a larger and more rapid spike in blood levels of these crucial anabolic signals.


Leucine Science

 

  • Most of the anabolic effects of protein are actually the result of a single amino acid – leucine. Only slight elevations in all of the other essential amino acids are necessary for leucine to spark (and maintain) increases in muscle protein synthesis.
  • Leucine is the amino-acid "trigger" by which skeletal muscle accrues protein. Specifically, the muscle-building effects of leucine are due to a cascade of cellular reactions including the activation of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), upregulation of ribosomal protein S6 kinase (S6K1) activity, enhancement of eukaryotic initiation factor-4E binding protein (eIF4E-BP1) phosphorylation, and the association of eukaryotic initiation factor (eIF)4E with eIF4G. These effects have been shown to occur both in vitro and in humans.
  • Estimates of dietary requirements for leucine range from 1 g to 12 g daily. The amount of leucine necessary to optimize performance and muscle growth is unknown, but recent research in humans points to a plateau effect (at least on muscle protein synthesis) occurring around 3.5 grams per meal.
  • As we get older, muscles become less sensitive to the anabolic effects of insulin, protein, and amino acids (including leucine). As a result, peri-workout nutrition becomes more important to maximize our overall health and performance.
  • Leucine oxidation by muscle can be reduced by co-ingesting a high-quality carbohydrate, an effect that in theory should increase the anabolic signal to muscle growth.
  • Although theoretical at this point in time, key leucine di- and tripeptides may turn out to provide extraordinary muscle-building benefits.

Metabolic Drive Low Carb 908g

 

 

Metabolic Drive® protein not only tastes as good as a decadent milkshake, it's also healthy and contains the most technically advanced and highest-quality proteins and nutrients that are impossible to get from solid foods alone – making it the ultimate muscle building, performance-enhancing gourmet nutrition.

Flavours
  • Chocolate
  • Vanilla
  • Strawberry
  • Banana

Whey Isolate – Fast Acting with BCAAs

The formula's whey isolate is gently membrane filtered to minimize lactose, carbohydrate, and fat, then instantized for superior dispersibility. It's a rich source of branched-chain amino acids and one of the faster-acting proteins, making it ideal for jumpstarting the muscle-building process.

Micellar Casein – Ideal for Building Muscle

The micellar casein in Metabolic Drive® is also gently membrane filtered. Even though it's more slowly digested, it has a distinct advantage over whey isolate due to its ability to amplify nitrogen retention, and increased nitrogen retention is essential for muscle performance. This factor alone makes micellar casein the ideal muscle-building protein.

Building Muscle and Losing Fat

Metabolic Drive® is designed to be stand-alone protein supplement for anyone who wants to maximize the effects of their workouts, lose body fat, or build lean muscle. So if your goal is fat loss, simply replacing a meal or two every day with a with a Metabolic Drive® shake will help you shed excess fat with no feelings of deprivation. If your goal is to build muscle and strength, adding a couple of Metabolic Drive® shakes per day will give your body the extra protein it needs to build muscle and perform at its best.

The Gold Standard and Best Seller

Metabolic Drive® has been a bestseller for over a decade. It's the industry's gold standard for high quality, elite-level nutrition. And it tastes so good that gourmet food companies, high-end smoothie bars and upscale coffee shops use it to make their products. Metabolic Drive® is their "secret ingredient" for pleasing customers and delivering a truly gourmet experience.

Why You Need More Protein

Whether your goal is fat loss, muscle gain, or both, adding more protein to your diet will always get you closer to your goal. Here's why:

  1. Diets higher in protein lead to greater fat loss. One reason for this is because protein is filling. It satisfies hunger, naturally leading to reduced calorie intake. Protein is actually the most effective appetite suppressant. On top of that, it's very difficult for your body to convert protein into body fat, even at very high amounts. That means you can eat a lot of it, feel more satiated, and still lose fat.
  2.  Protein has a higher thermic effect than the other two macronutrients, almost double in fact. In short, your body burns more calories digesting protein than it does with dietary fat or carbs. Eating protein is thermogenic and can lead to a higher metabolic rate. This means greater fat loss when dieting and less fat gain when overfeeding in order to build muscle.
  3. Without adequate protein, muscle building is halted, strength gains are slow or even nonexistent, and athletic performance is hampered.
  4. Protein is not only essential for building muscle, it's also essential for preserving muscle and keeping your metabolism revved up. Without a steady supply of amino acids from protein, the body breaks down its own proteins from lean muscle in order to meet this demand. A diet higher in protein prevents this.

The lesson? If you want to get lean, get big, get strong, or dominate your sport, there's one simple rule that'll help you achieve your goal: consume more protein!

Power Drive 320g

Now has zero carbs and 67% more servings!

Supercharge the mind/muscle connection and get more out of your workouts. Biotest product testing indicates that 45 minutes after using Power Drive, as recommended, strength levels can increase by as much as 8-12%. Individual results may vary widely. 

Up until now, bodybuilding science has spent all of its time trying to conquer the body while ignoring the brain. The trouble is, everything is controlled by the brain, and we're not just talking about memory or creativity or feelings of well being, either. The brain controls how well your muscles work. Ever wonder how some relatively weak-looking guys can rip apart phone books or bend steel rods in half? A lot of it has to do with muscle motor unit recruitment. 

Muscles are made up of individual motor units and some people are gifted in that they're able to recruit more of these motor units when it comes to performing an act of strength.

Power Drive is designed to help you recruit more of these motor units so that you experience an almost immediate gain in strength and endurance. And, over the long run, this enhanced ability to recruit motor units results in bigger muscles. It stands to reason that, under normal circumstances, the average weight trainer doesn't even begin to work a good percentage of his or her muscle fibers. In effect, these fibers "sit by" during an average workout and receive very little direct stimulation. Without stimulation or recruitment, they won't respond by growing!

The Power Drive formula is also designed to improve fat mobilization, along with concentration, memory, coordination, and endurance. It may, in some individuals, also increase pain threshold and overall sense of well-being.

Each one-scoop serving provides:
L-Tyrosine 3,000 milligrams
Phosphatidylcholine 1,000 milligrams
DMAE 200 milligrams
Each bottle contains 30 servings

Lastly, Power Drive may prevent age-related decreases in testosterone levels. As you age, levels of a neurotransmitter called dopamine decrease, and this causes an increase in a hormone called prolactin. Unfortunately, increases in prolactin are accompanied by a decrease in testosterone. Power Drive may elevate dopamine levels, thus preventing the catabolic sequence.


Power Drive's Active Ingredients

L-Tyrosine: The brain converts this to the stimulatory neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine (the last two being the famous "fight or flight" hormones), known collectively as catecholamines. Approximately 90% of the brain's catecholamines are synthesized directly from the amino acid tyrosine.

During the early 1980s, MIT scientist Richard Wurtman discovered that tyrosine, when combined with a catalyst, "enhances performance, improves subjective vigor, decreases fatigue, diminishes subjective confusion, and decreases tension and anxiety." Subsequent preliminary studies performed by Dr. Jeffery Stout of the University of Nebraska found that tyrosine, when administered about an hour before working out, increased peak torque by 283% (during a set of 15 bench presses).

In short, the evidence is strong that supplemental tyrosine can improve performance as well as increase energy levels, along with a host of other subjective feelings of mental ability and well-being.

Phosphatidylcholine: It's been shown to increase levels of another vital neurotransmitter known as acetylcholine. This potent neurotransmitter has been implicated in controlling motor unit recruitment, reflex and reaction times, as well as memory.

DMAE: This is a well-known among life-extensionists as a "nootropic," or mind-enhancing chemical. Chemically, it works much the same as phosphatidylcholine by helping increase levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.


Frequently Asked Questions

How does Power Drive work? Power Drive is a sweet-tasting orange-flavored powder that mixes easily in water (most people describe the taste as being very similar to Tang). Power Drive was designed to increase the levels of various stimulatory brain chemicals. It does this by supplying the brain with the raw ingredients it needs to manufacture these important stimulatory neurotransmitters.

Who should use Power Drive? Power Drive will improve the performance of strength athletes, endurance athletes, and even those athletes who require extreme concentration like marksmen or golfers. Businessman or students might benefit from it too, as it will give them unparalleled mental energy and drive.

Is it addictive? Power Drive is "addictive" only in the sense that anything that causes pleasurable sensations and feelings is addictive. In other words, if something makes you feel good, you'll probably want to use it again. However, none of the ingredients have been shown to cause any physical addiction. All of Power Drive's ingredients occur naturally in certain foods.

Does Power Drive have any potential negative side effects? There are no known negative side effects to Power Drive.

Have any studies been done? Each of the components of Power Drive has been tested thoroughly in non-partisan laboratory experiments. Biotest is currently conducting a study using NHL hockey players and so far, the findings exceed all expectations.

What happens if I take more than the recommended dosage? Again, results will vary from individual to individual, but it's possible that some users may experience little or no effect from the standard dosage. These individuals may wish to cautiously experiment with larger dosages, but users should not exceed two servings of Power Drive. Although we haven't found any negative effects of larger doses, more studies need to be done.

What happens if I'm not happy with the results? If you aren't satisfied with the results of Power Drive, for any reason, just return the unused portion to Biotest for a full, unconditional refund.

Power Drive is available online and through our phone orders department, as well as many retail stores throughout the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Asia.

Tribex Pro 74 Tablets

The King of Testosterone Boosters


 Tribex - Now in a rapid-release tablet.

This tablet technology is just as precise (in dosing) as liquid-filled capsules; it seals in the active components, thus preserving the potency long-term; and it allowed us to increase the potency and overall load per unit dosing.

The secret to the success of Tribex is found in its super potent extract of genuine, Bulgarian Tribulus terrestris, Vitex agnus castus and Eurycoma Longifolia. The goal is to stimulate the body to increase its own Testosterone levels all the way up to what's considered high normal (+1000 ng/dl). And not only that, but do it in a way that's not inhibitory, like steroids are.

Z12 Deep Sleep Formula 80 Capsules

Finally... A Good Night's Sleep

Nothing aids performance, physical or mental, more than a good night's sleep. Conversely, nothing hurts performance more than a poor night's sleep. Worse, lack of sleep kills the ability to enjoy life. It saps us of our strength, our vitality.

For years, doctors have told us that sleeplessness results from depression, neurosis, or some other underlying psychological pathology. But there's evidence to suggest that we've got it backward, that sleeplessness leads to depression, in addition to alcoholism, emotional instability, and other mental problems!

While surveys suggest that 10 to 15 percent of the U.S. population suffers from chronic insomnia, personal experience and anecdotal data lead me to believe that occasional sleeplessness plagues at least half of the population. The causes are largely unknown, although there's some indication that it might even be genetic.

Regardless of the cause, sleeplessness takes its toll in the gym, in business, and in health. People who suffer from sleeplessness have statistically more visits to the doctor (because they're at the mercy of every passing illness), more hospitalization, and more accidents on the job and on the road.

Obviously, rest is crucial. We all know it. Now it's time we applied the inestimable creativity of Biotest researchers to addressing it. Enter the latest Biotest product. Enter blissful rest without a sleep hangover. Enter calmness without loss of strength or focus.

 

Z-12™ – The Ultimate, Non-Addictive Sleep Formula

 

Z-12™ provides a full night's sleep without the sleep "hangover" associated with virtually all other prescription or non-prescription sleep aids.

Z-12™ is also useful to people who might not generally have trouble sleeping, but who might occasionally need a guaranteed good night's sleep, like the night before an exam, a job interview, or athletic meet. And Travelers might find it useful, too, in overcoming the first-night insomnia that often afflicts those who sleep in beds they're not accustomed to.

The typical experience with Z-12™ results in falling into a deep, restful, uninterrupted sleep within 15 minutes of taking two capsules at bedtime, and waking up the next morning entirely refreshed without the least bit of grogginess.

PhGABA

The main workhorse in Z-12 is PhGABA. The compound is a derivative of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA. When we're stressed, our brains experience an uninterrupted flow of stimulatory neurotransmitters and this causes restlessness, irritability, and insomnia.

GABA, and compounds related to it like the PhGABA in Biotest's Z-12, inhibit the flow of these stimulatory neurotransmitters, thereby allowing the brain and body to relax. PhGABA not only acts like GABA, but it also causes the release of GABA for a one-two sleep-inducing punch.

There have been a ton of studies on PhGABA and many of them have compared the compound to Valium, which has pronounced anxiolytic (anxiety-reducing) properties, and the nootropic compound piracetam, which has weaker anxiolytic properties.

In parts of Europe, the compound is used to treat post-traumatic stress disorder, stuttering, and of course, insomnia. Furthermore, double-blind studies found the compound to increase intellectual function, improve physical strength, and reduce fatigue in neurotic patients.While it's not commonly known as a performance-enhancing supplement, PhGABA has been shown to improve work capacity in humans, along with increasing the performance of animals on swim tests.

PhGABA is an amazingly safe compound. Unlike many compounds, it seems to have no known negative side effects. In fact, it's even been found to have cardioprotective properties. The plasma half-life of a 250-mg dose of PhGABA is 5.3 hours, and most of the compound is excreted unchanged.

 

5-HTP

5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is a naturally occurring amino acid that's a precursor to the neurotransmitter serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine), which is implicated in sleep and general feelings of well-being. When blood levels of 5-HTP are high, it causes the brain's serotonin producing neurons to increase production.

Furthermore, we believe that 5-HTP, in addition to being serotonergic, actually "resets" (normalizes) the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. In addition to helping the body adapt better to stress, this resetting effect also helps PhGABA and L-theanine to keep on working without allowing the user to develop tolerance.

 

L-Theanine

L-Theanine is an amino acid found in green tea. Due to it promoting brain alpha-wave function, L-theanine facilitates a calm, relaxed-mental state. Animal studies suggest it increases brain serotonin and GABA levels, along with perhaps being both a neuroprotective agent and a cognitive enhancing agent.

ZMA 90 Capsules

Strength, Endurance, Recovery, and Growth

Enhance strength, endurance, recovery, and growth with the original ZMA formula from SNAC System. ZMA is an advanced zinc/magnesium formulation designed to replace deficiencies caused from exercise and stress. 

ZMA is a scientifically designed mineral-support formula that can dramatically increase natural levels of anabolic hormones and improve athletic performance. In fact, if taken as recommended, ZMA can increase free testosterone by 30% while boosting IGF-1 levels significantly. 

Zinc and magnesium deficiencies are common in the general population and even more prevalent in athletes. To illustrate the point, in 1998, the mineral status of over 250 NFL players was tested. Over 70% of the players were either depleted or deficient in both zinc and magnesium. It sounds almost unbelievable because of all the attention we give to good nutrition, but most athletes and active people are deficient in zinc and magnesium which results in decreased hormone levels and diminished strength and power.

 

The Cause of Zinc and Magnesium Deficiencies

Why are we so deficient in zinc and magnesium? Probably the biggest reason is that rigorous exercise and stress result in significant mineral losses. And, to make matters worse, most ordinary types of zinc and magnesium are poorly absorbed ê it's very difficult to recover proper amounts without specific supplementation. 


The Solution

ZMA is designed to combat these deficiencies. University studies have found that the zinc and magnesium contained in ZMA are absorbed far better than other forms. An independent ZMA study was recently conducted on competitive NCAA football players at Western Washington University. The results show that, in eight weeks, the ZMA group increased free and total testosterone levels by 30%, while the placebo group showed a decrease of 10%. The ZMA group also had a slight increase in IGF-1 levels compared to a 20% decrease in the placebo group. In addition to increasing anabolic-hormone levels, the ZMA group gained 2.5 times more strength and functional power over the placebo group.

If you're an athlete, or you're under a lot of stress, you probably need extra zinc and magnesium to perform at your best. And if you incorporate ZMA into your supplement program, odds are you'll attain the same kinds of increases in testosterone and GH production that many athletes have already experienced.

Mag-10 Protein Pulse 908g

 


Protein Pulsing for Maximum Gains

Have you made your body non-responsive to protein? 

How your body utilizes protein can have a powerful impact on how fast you gain muscle mass. Simply put, the greater the body's response to protein utilization, the greater the muscle gains achieved.

Unfortunately, over the last 20 years, the standard advice of everyone in the fitness world has been to "consume a big dose of protein every couple of hours," which is too often and actually causes the body to become unresponsive to protein.

Science and experience now tell us that we actually should've been doing something called "protein pulsing." Protein pulsing is a science-based dosing strategy for making the body hyper-responsive to high-protein utilization and producing the maximum anabolic effect.

Effective Protein Pulsing

For protein pulsing to be effective, you have to achieve three or four sizeable amino-acid spikes per day, and allow the body's amino-acid levels to return to baseline after each spike. In order to do that, you have to utilize a super-fast acting protein formulation that's designed specifically for maximum pulsing effect.

Optimal times for pulses are 30 minutes prior to meals, between meals that are six hours apart (or longer), and post-workout, when the body is already in a hyper-responsive state and needs the additional protein.

So, if you want to become hyper-responsive and get the greatest anabolic effects from protein supplementation, protein pulsing is your only option. And Mag-10® is the only formula in the world designed specifically to deliver the maximum pulse effect.

The Unique Mag-10® Formula

The protein in Mag-10® is comprised of a unique di- and tripeptide complex that's transported – unaltered, requiring no further breakdown – directly into the bloodstream. And the particular di-/tripeptide mixture found in Mag-10 produces effects in muscle that go far beyond simple amino acids from other protein sources.

Peptide structures – growth hormone and insulin being examples – have biological activities beyond regular amino acids. The peptide structures in Mag-10 also have biological activities above and beyond regular amino acids, making it a totally different animal. In fact, only 20 grams of protein from Mag-10® stimulates protein synthesis, as well as other muscle building and recovery effects, to a far greater degree than what you would get from 100s of grams of conventional protein.

Additionally, Mag-10® also contains a special carbohydrate mixture that, in addition to increasing metabolic rate, drives supraphysiologic levels of these di- and tripeptides, as well as other vital nutrients, into the muscle cell.

And best of all, the increased rate of recovery and gains you'll experience from Mag-10® pulses will be nothing less than shocking. So, don't hold back in the gym, and go ahead and train your heart out. You'll completely recover, grow, and be ready for more the next day.

BCAA Structured Peptides 300g

 


BCAA Structured Peptides

250% Greater Muscle Growth!


Structured Peptides are absorbed faster, utilized better, and produce 250 percent greater muscle growth than free-form amino acids.

BIOTEST® Leucine and BCAA Structured Peptides are produced from peptide enhanced whey-protein isolate, utilizing a three-step process:

  1. Whey-protein isolate is hydrolyzed into very small peptide forms using a combination of selective enzymes (aminopeptidases and proteases) to break apart targeted leucine peptide and BCAA-peptide bonds.
  2. Afterward, small peptide formations are extracted from the hydrolyzed whey by passing the mixture through a series of filters, ending with nanofiltration.
  3. Next, the nano-mixture undergoes a final reaction phase to further enhance its total leucine and BCAA content.

The end result is a highly refined mixture of leucine and BCAA di- and tripeptides that provides the body with the greatest effects from leucine/ BCAA supplementation.


Di- and Tripeptide Science

 

  • Unlike regular (free-form) amino acids, the uptake of di- and tripeptides is achieved through a very specific, high-capacity intestinal transporter (PEPT-1), which can lead to a larger and more rapid spike in blood levels of these crucial anabolic signals.


BCAA Science

 

  • The branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) consist of the essential amino acids leucine, isoleucine, and valine.
  • BCAA account for approximately 35% of the essential amino acids in muscle.
  • In contrast to most essential amino acids that are metabolized in the liver, BCAA are unique because they are metabolized primarily in skeletal muscle. This fact also explains why BCAA are used to help patients with liver failure retain their lean mass. BCAA are also used in the management of tardive dyskinesia, amytrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), hepatic encephalopathy, and phenylketonuria.
  • Numerous studies have demonstrated the anti-catabolic effects of (free form) BCAA administration, i.e., a reduction in muscle protein breakdown during clinical conditions of wasting (e.g., starvation, post-surgery, burns, liver disease, etc.).
  • BCAA have been theorized to act as a metabolic fuel during exercise, particularly during intense and/or prolonged physical activity. This effect "spares" muscle glycogen during training, at least when BCAA are taken pre-exercise.
  • BCAA also donate nitrogen (via transamination) to non-essential amino acids. This phenomenon explains why not all amino acids are necessary to stimulate protein synthesis.
  • Proponents of BCAA supplementation maintain that BCAA may blunt the increase in serotonin, thus reducing perceived effort and mental fatigue during prolonged exercise, and here's why:
  • A few recent studies have shown that men and women who ingest approximately 10 to 15 grams of BCAA per day (comprised of 5-7 g leucine, 3-4 g isoleucine, and 3-4 g valine) for at least four-weeks increase their lean mass more than matched control subjects. This effect appears to be the result of a BCAA-induced increased protein synthesis during the recovery period following resistance exercise.
  • Another interesting aspect of BCAA that has only recently been explored is the potential effect on weight loss. During moderate protein intake (1.5 grams/kg of body weight per day) and a lower carbohydrate (100-200 grams/day) diet, an increased intake of BCAA is thought to have positive effects on muscle protein synthesis, insulin signaling, and sparing of glucose use by stimulation of the glucose-alanine cycle. This may lead to more fat loss and a greater sparing of lean tissue compared to a calorically-matched, higher carbohydrate diet.

Indigo 3G Selective Repartitioning Agent 90 Capsules

Scientists have discovered a naturally occurring compound — called cyanidin 3-glucoside (C3G) — that has the ability to precisely control carbohydrates so that what you eat literally turns to muscle instead of fat. This might seem hard to believe, but research has proven C3G's effects on insulin signaling, selective insulin sensitivity, glucose and nutrient management, as well as its direct effect on fat and muscle cells, is extremely elaborate and precise.

C3G literally makes your body function perfectly for building muscle mass without the fear of gaining fat, even while on a bulking diet, making the body-building process a whole new ballgame. No more depriving yourself of the optimal nutrition for building muscle because "your body can't handle the carbs" — because now it can. 

Indigo-3G® acts as a "nutrient partitioning agent" – meaning it maximizes carbohydrate uptake in muscle, releases and burns fat, and prevents the storage of fat. In simple terms, Indigo-3G is the ultimate body-transformation agent.

The formula contains a self-microemulsifying delivery system of cyanidin-3 glucoside (C3G) that substantially enhances its potency, bioavailability, and stability. Most importantly, Indigo-3G yields much higher blood levels of C3G than any of the previous research indicated was possible, and provides the amount of C3G required for maximum results.

Here's how C3G specifically affects fat cells and muscle cells:

Fat Cells — C3G actually up-regulates gene expression for fat oxidation (fat burning) and down-regulates gene expression for fat storage. The oxidation of fatty acids increases further, directly through the release of adiponectin. The overall effect is that fat cells begin to shrink in size. The reduced inflammation also decreases the size of fat cells and disgorges the excess water associated with the inflammatory process (leading to a less bloated and squishy feeling to the fat under the skin).

Muscle Cells — Insulin sensitivity of muscle cells increases, thereby enhancing insulin signaling and glucose and nutrient uptake, along with enhancing glycogen synthesis, which drives glucose and nutrients preferentially into muscle.

Results - What to Expect

Indigo-3G Results

Indigo-3G could very well change your life from this point forward – change the way you handle carbs, change the way you don't store body fat, and change the way you gain muscle. But you better get an action plan before you start the program, or you very well could miss out on the very best physique gains of your life.

Here's a fact: dramatic physique changes can't come overnight. Heck, they can't even come quickly, especially if you want them to last. We work with the gifted elite, and even these physique champions have to work brutally hard over time (just like you and me) to make impressive gains.

So don't expect to take Indigo-3G tonight and wake up tomorrow morning transformed into the new you. You'll eventually get that new-you image; it's just going to take some honest hard work and a little time to get there. So be patient and watch the process become a whole lot easier and consistent with Indigo-3G.

Your current physiology and body composition will determine what types of results you experience. But regardless of your condition, everyone should take Indigo-3G for two weeks before evaluating the effects. That's the "break-in" period (the first two weeks). Beyond that is when things begin to really take shape.

So far, all of our subjects have experienced significant results in the areas of overall improved body composition, pronounced muscle fullness, increased rate of strength gains, universal carb tolerance, and being resistant to gaining fat. Many users have gone so far as to say, "I now know what it's like to be one of the lucky ones who can eat 'normally' and not get fat. I no longer have to worry about eating 'perfectly' to see my abs."

To make sure you experience the greatest effects from Indigo-3G, here are the important things to keep in mind:

Enhanced Carb Uptake

You can't utilize something you don't consume. So, if you don't consume ample supplies of carbs in peri-workout nutrition, you'll greatly diminish muscle mass gains.

In contrast, low-carb diets make your muscles feel and appear flat. This "flatness" is due to low intramuscular pressure, which is associated with a catabolic (muscle wasting) state. Keeping muscle bellies nice and full, by including ample amounts of carbohydrates, means that you're not losing muscle mass and well on the way to building some. 

Increased Muscle Gains and Fat Loss

Most users will begin noticing changes in body composition within the first week or two. Some have even reported substantial muscle gains and fat loss during that same period. As a general rule, those who have above average muscle mass and train often (5 or 6 days a week) will experience a more rapid rate of muscle mass gains and fat loss.

Initially, you might not see a change in overall body weight, but notice that you're getting leaner and more muscular. We've observed this weight homeostasis effect when doing Dexa scans on subjects, so don't let the number on the scales negatively influence your judgment.

Larger Muscle Pumps

Within a few days, muscle pumps should come much more quickly and easily, and be noticeably larger (even to others in the gym), sometimes to the point of substantially affecting movement. The pump should also last longer after the workout is completed. Even at rest, the muscles of Indigo-3G users can feel and appear fuller and semi-pumped, especially when taking in ample amounts of proper quality nutrients.

Faster Strength Gains

Strength increases should come faster and more often. In fact, some reported having to recheck the plates on the bar after a set, thinking they forgot to add weight between sets.

Enhanced Work Capacity and Recovery

Due to enhanced glucose management, almost all users notice what many describe as "limitless energy to do more in the gym." And they also report improved recovery rates. As an extreme example of this, Christian Thibaudeau recently had a monster training day where he performed a total of 258 sets (this is not a typo) spread over 3 sessions, followed by another two workouts the very next day. That's FIVE hardcore-to-the-bone workouts over two days, with no recovery problems. Granted, he included our most advanced peri-workout nutrition protocol in every training session. Even so, Indigo-3G potentiated the overall effects to a whole new level.

How Indigo-3G Works

Indigo-3G Turns Nutrients into Muscle Instead of Fat

Here's an interesting fact that you might not know. The fat cell (not the muscle cell) is a major regulator of how easily you gain muscle. It's the fat cell that sends all of the molecular signals for glucose and nutrient uptake in both fat and lean tissue. This is especially important because it's the nutrient uptake (not androgens) that has the most impact on gaining muscle.

As most advanced bodybuilders know, the most anabolic hormone in the body is insulin, not testosterone, and insulin is what determines nutrient uptake. Unfortunately, insulin is anabolic in both muscle and fat. But by decreasing the effects of insulin on fat and increasing the effects of insulin on muscle, you can achieve what no one thought was possible and make the common man look like a muscle-building genetic freak.

As always, there are genetic limitations to how much muscle an individual can gain — I think we all understand that C3G can't turn short muscle bellies into long muscle bellies. The real issue at hand, however, is not the genetic limits on overall muscle size, but specifically dysfunctional nutrient uptake. That's the real limiting factor.

The sad fact is, dysfunctional nutrient uptake prevents people from ever attaining even a fraction of the gains they could, both in terms of muscle gains and overall leanness.

"I Want to Get Big... No, I Want to Get Shredded..."

Dysfunctional nutrient uptake results in what amounts to a bodybuilding identity crisis, where you go back and forth between trying to get big and trying to get shredded — but never truly achieve either goal.

You get bigger, alright, but it's mostly fat. You tend to rationalize it until the day you see some guy in the gym with razor-sharp etched muscle who has your look — at least, the one you've decided you now want. You're sick about what you've done to yourself, and with renewed vigor you're off to shredded-land. Except, at the end of that jaunt, you haven't etched anything and you're now "skinny," which totally ticks you off and sends you back in the other direction.

This is obviously an irrational approach to achieving a lean and muscular body, but what's not so obvious is the cause of this dysfunction. It's due to a condition that's tantamount to "inflammatory fat disease."

The Cause — Inflammatory Fat Disease

Indigo-3GTM Repartitions Nutrients into Muscle Instead of Fat

Most diseases of modern living have been linked to inflammation. So it's no wonder that researchers have found that inflammatory signaling has also caused fat cells to become dysfunctional, resulting in high circulating glucose levels, out of control appetite, fat cells that love to get "fatter," and lazy muscle cells that prefer to leave most of the fuel for the fat cells to gobble up and store.

This is where C3G comes in. The consensus among researchers is that C3G acts primarily (through the Glut4-RBP4 system) to optimize molecular crosstalk between fat cells, which directly decreases adipocyte inflammatory signals. The overall effect causes the body to repartition nutrients so that what you eat literally turns to muscle instead of fat.

In other words, your body resists storing fat, releases and oxidizes fat-cell content (fatty acids), and preferentially pulls glucose and nutrients into muscle cells. 

Effective C3G Dosing

Indigo-3GTM Repartitions Nutrients into Muscle Instead of Fat

It's simple. Find blackberries that actually contain high levels of C3G and then eat literally 40 pounds of them per day. Too bad that's not really feasible. Besides, blackberries (and the other berries and their extracts) that contain C3G also contain quercetin and other compounds that can either inhibit or diminish the effects of C3G.

So, even if you had a bottomless pit of a stomach and access to an unlimited supply, it's impossible to eat enough blackberries or berry extract to achieve any partitioning effects from the C3G they contain.

To make C3G even workable as a super-partitioning compound, it needs to be formulated with enhanced bioavailability and stability (to prevent oxidation). So in summary, to be highly effective, you need a pure and stable C3G compound that's bioengineered with enhanced bioavailability.

Of course, there are a small handful of supplements on the market formulated with crude extracts that claim to contain C3G. But just as the case with fresh berries and berry extracts, none of these products contain the purified form of C3G, or anywhere close to the amount of C3G required to be effective for nutrient partitioning. Furthermore, none are designed to enhance the absorption or stability of C3G.

Indigo-3G® is the only C3G formula in the world with the potency, bioavailability, and stability required for effective, maximum results.

The Ultimate Anabolic Bridge


The Art of "Keeping Gains"

In bodybuilding, there are two primary reasons to use anabolic agents: 

1) to build muscle mass, and 
2) to keep muscle mass.

 

 

 

Why is it that no one ever really discusses the second reason?

Simple, it's very difficult to keep the mass gained from anabolic mega-cycles, and gear gurus don't like to fail. In fact, it's so hard to maintain big gains that today's "overbuilt" professional bodybuilders find it easier to remain on big gear, all year long.

As a result, the art of "keeping gains" is all but lost.

Most of us don't want the bloated mass of a modern pro bodybuilder, anyway. We'd much rather build physiques like the bodybuilding masters of the 70's and early 80's, like Arnold and Zane. In other words, most guys want to be muscular, and have great lines and symmetry, and be healthy – and not be repulsive to 99.9% of the desirable women.

In other words, we want to be muscular-cool . . .


The Bodybuilding Masters Knew 

The bodybuilding masters took a fraction of the gear used today and knew how to keep the gains they made. They were healthy and physically capable. It's not that they didn't have access to steroids, or that they didn't want to build their best bodies.

By most standards, their bodies looked better than today's pros, and let's not forget . . . this was the era when all the great designer steroids were used, like Premobolan, Parabolan, Winstrol, Dianabol, Anadrol, and Anavar.

The masters knew how to pack on the right amount of mass; they knew how to develop great lines and symmetry; they knew how to cycle gear; and above all, they knew what to do to keep their hard-earned gains.

It's the "keeping" part that's a lost art. For these masters, it wasn't a matter of shooting themselves with mega doses of anabolics. That was never an option for them. They weren't after the bloato-freak-show look of today's pros. 

No, they wanted a much more refined and elegant look. And they knew how to get it by manipulating anabolic physiology just enough to achieve the esthetically pleasing, muscular leanness that's the trademark of the bodybuilding masters.

No matter how you achieved your gains over the years – whether you've used anabolic steroids, pro-steroids, prohormones, or remained clean – it's those periods when your anabolic physiology was a step beyond natural that you began to see a shift toward muscular leanness.

This might seem hard to believe, but research has proven C3G's effects on insulin signaling, selective insulin sensitivity, glucose and nutrient management, as well as its direct effect on fat and muscle cells, is extremely elaborate and precise.

C3G literally makes your body function perfectly for building muscle mass without the fear of gaining fat, even while on a bulking diet, making the body-building process a whole new ballgame. No more depriving yourself of the optimal nutrition for building muscle because "your body can't handle the carbs" — because now it can. 

Indigo-3G® acts as a "nutrient partitioning agent" – meaning it maximizes carbohydrate uptake in muscle, releases and burns fat, and prevents the storage of fat. In simple terms, Indigo-3G is the ultimate body-transformation agent.

The formula contains a self-microemulsifying delivery system of cyanidin-3 glucoside (C3G) that substantially enhances its potency, bioavailability, and stability. Most importantly, Indigo-3G yields much higher blood levels of C3G than any of the previous research indicated was possible, and provides the amount of C3G required for maximum results.

The Jim Wendler Stack (5:3:1)

 

 

The Jim Wendler Stack Includes; 

  • Plazma 1300g x 1
  • Mag-10 908g x 1
  • Brain Candy 16 x 125ml
  • Flavourings 2 x 125ml

----------------------------------- 

''When Tim Patterson first asked me to try the Plazma™ protocol, I was skeptical. I know John Meadows uses it and swears by it, which is usually good enough for me. But the stories I kept hearing about Plazma™ seemed "too good," and I simply wasn't convinced. I had to see it work for me.

Now that I've been using the stuff for several months, there's no doubt left in my mind. The Plazma™ protocol is amazing! And anything that allows me to train harder and reach my goals quicker is worth its weight in gold to me. In fact, I've worked with Biotest to help determine the best supplementation for my own training.

Here's a typical training day and how I take the supplements from Biotest:

Training Day Supplement Protocol
Pre-Workout Brain Candy®, 1/2 bottle
Indigo-3G®, 6 capsules
Warm-up DeFranco Agile 8
Ride Bike
Plazma™ dose (500 ml)
Sip Plazma™ while riding bike for 25 minutes
Dynamic Brain Candy, 1/2 bottle
Plazma dose (500 ml)

Box Jump
Begin drinking Plazma™ and continue drinking during dynamic work. Warm-up with Squat (bar, 95 lb, 135 lb x 5/8 sets) superset with Box Jump.
Break Plazma™ dose (500 ml) Begin drinking Plazma™ and continue drinking during strength work.
Strength Bench Press Warm-up with bench (bar, 95 lb, 135 lb x 5/8 sets) superset with rear delt or rotator work.
Break Plazma™ dose (500 ml) Begin drinking Plazma™ and continue drinking during assistance work.
Assistance Chin-up / Pull-up
Side Bend
Triceps Pushdown
Work until so pumped that it's not possible to do another rep.
Post-Workout Post-Workout Meal
Mag-10® Dose (500 ml)

There are three things that I noticed when using Plazma™ and Mag-10®:

First, you'll no longer experience much, if any, soreness from your training. I even went off Plazma™ and trained without it to see if I would notice a difference, and I did.

There's no doubt in my mind that Plazma allows you to train without getting sore. I even had my wife try the protocol to see if she noticed a difference. She had the same experience as I did.

The second thing that we both noticed is Plazma™ allowed us both to train longer. This was especially apparent when we did Prowler work.

Lastly, Plazma™ and Mag-10® help your muscles recover, not your joints. For many of us who train heavy, joint soreness is the determining factor in your training. So be careful, because Plazma™ and Mag-10® will tell your muscles one thing but your joints will tell you another. You'll have to remember that it doesn't give you license to do more. Use it to do what you usually do, but only BETTER. In other words, use Plazma™ and Mag-10® to bring what you're currently doing to a higher level.''

Micro PA 120 Capsules
Here's what you need to know...
  • Weight training produces muscle growth by releasing phosphatidic acid (PA), which activates the enzyme required for muscle protein synthesis.
  • Subjects taking a PA supplement achieved 50% greater increase in muscle cross-sectional area and lean body mass, 40% greater increase in total strength (upper and lower body), and 60% greater loss in body fat than the training-only group (Wilson et al 2014, in press).
  • Micro-PA™ contains a highly specialized form of unsaturated phosphatidic acid (PA), with enhanced bioavailability, that powerfully activates and amplifies muscle cell protein synthesis.

Micro-PA™ Amplifies Muscle Gains!

by Tim Patterson

Micro-PA™ 

Muscle. We spend countless hours pushing iron to pack more of it on our bodies. We center our diets around fueling and feeding it. And we're constantly looking for ways to make better and faster gains.

For most of us, lifting weights is not just a hobby or simply something we do, it's very much a part of our identity. In fact, we probably spend more time thinking about stimulating muscle growth than most of us would like to admit, and we're always searching for the latest hypertrophy news.

If that's you, I have some information that will more than light up your brain's synapses. Some of it's a little geeky and technical, but it's also very important and provides a clearer, more focused picture of what's involved in gaining muscle.

The New Science of Hypertrophy

While performing a set of reps under load, your body begins converting mechanical information into biochemical action. The term for this is mechanotransduction, and it's the basis for the most powerful stimulus of intracellular protein synthesis (aka hypertrophy).

Here's exactly how that works. During eccentric movement, an enzyme is dislodged from the Z-lines of muscle cells that hydrolyzes phosphatidylcholine into phosphatidic acid (PA). PA in turn binds to and activates a kinase enzyme, called mTOR, which is the "master regulator" of muscle cell protein synthesis and muscle size.

PA-activated mTOR directly affects immediate and long-term changes in muscle growth. Simply put, if you want to gain muscle, you have to activate mTOR. And the more PA available to activate mTOR, the greater the effect on intracellular protein synthesis and the greater the muscle mass gains.

The Next Step: Orally Bioavailable PA

One of the industry's most innovative materials manufacturers is a company called Chemi Nutra. Chemi Nutra and its president Scott Hagerman are devoted to producing novel compounds that have a real impact on enhancing human performance. They have a huge budget for research and development, including the funding of scientific studies. 

So it really grabbed my attention when Tim Ziegenfuss and Jeff Stout (both PhDs) informed me that Chemi Nutra had produced an orally bioavailable form of PA that activates mTOR. And the company had compelling research to back it up. Dr. Stout, who's involved in the Chemi Nutra PA research, began sending me information about the studies, as well as his personal thoughts on PA.

Here's a summary of the research and Dr. Stout's personal observations:

PA Research Summary

PA Study Chart

  • Many studies have demonstrated that PA activates and amplifies the "master regulatory enzyme" responsible for immediate and long term changes in muscle growth (aka protein synthesis).
  • PA bathed in-vitro with myoblast (baby muscle cells) resulted in an 8-fold increase activation of mTOR.
  • Supplemented PA increases protein synthesis via two mechanisms:  Directly, by entering the muscle cell and binding to mTOR. Indirectly, by converting to lyso-phosphatidic acid and attaching to the muscle cell membrane, which increases intracellular PA, and in turn activates mTOR.
  • PA is a phospholipid that contains two fatty acids and a phosphate group, and must be unsaturated to activate mTOR. If the fatty acids are saturated (like the PA found in eggs), then PA simply gets incorporated into the cell membrane.
  • Bioavailability of PA significantly rises in 30 minutes after dosing and stays elevated for 7 hours.
  • A study, involving resistance trained men undergoing a very intense exercise program, showed subjects supplementing with 750 mg PA per day achieved 50% greater increase in muscle cross-sectional area and lean body mass, 40% greater increase in total strength (upper and lower body) and 60% greater loss in body fat than the training-only group (Wilson et al 2014, in press).
  • Another study, involving resistance trained men undergoing an 8-week exercise program, showed subjects taking 750 mg of PA per day gained significantly more lean body mass and strength than the training-only group (Hoffman et al. 2013).

Spike Tablets X 48

How would you like to have the best workout of your life – every time you train?

How would like to have the energy of ephedrine, without the jitters?

How would you like the mental clarity and mood elevation of amphetamine, without using a controlled substance?

How would you like all of this, without negative side effects: no addiction and no down-regulation of receptors requiring ever-increasing doses?

Well, bubba, you can have it all with one bad-boy . . .

His name is Spike! . . . and he'll blow your freakin' head off – with ammo to spare!

No one else in the world has access to the power ingredients in Spike. A patent has been filed and I'll keep the formula-activation secret out of the public domain forever. Like the secret Coke formula, I consider the Spike formula to be one of our most-valued assets. As such, I'm not going to discuss one single thing about the science behind it, and I'm certainly not going to publish what makes the power turn on.

And before some of you punks assume that the secret behind Spike is simply caffeine or some other pusillanimous, everyday substance, it’s not! So don’t waste your time asking me about it!

All I'm going to say is, it works – big time!

Even if you had all the raw materials, which you can never get, you'd still be missing the single most important factor: Unless you know how to activate the formula, which can only be done a certain way prior to mixing the ingredients, then you have nothing. And there's absolutely no way to reverse- engineer it.

Anyway, enough of the blustering. We’re about to deliver you the best brain-body ride you'll ever experience – that is, if boundless muscular power and mental clarity are your games. It's like we're chemically hardwiring all your synapses for nuclear war!

So, here's the offer . . .

Try Spike and love it, or don't try Spike and never know what you're missing.

It's that simple!

Spike is totally underground bad!

Spike on!

Be afraid, be very afraid . . .

Mark Hominick
TKO Lightweight Champion

Spike is intended to be taken once per day:

  • either in the morning; or
  • prior to training; or
  • before activities requiring intense mental focus.

Begin by taking one tablet the first day to see how you respond. On day two, if you want to increase the effect, take two tablets (at one time). On day three, if you still want more amps, take three tablets (at one time). 

Under no circumstances are you to take more than two tablets the first time. And under no circumstances whatsoever are you to take more than three tablets per day. If you do, and I find out about it, I'll consider you a bonehead idiot of the highest order and ban you from further purchases.

The Plazma™ Formula

Plazma™ contains a unique blend of fast-acting di- and tripeptides that produce biological activities and effects in muscle for performance, growth and recovery that go far beyond other proteins and amino acids.

The formula also contains a special carbohydrate complex that in addition to increasing metabolic rate, drives these di- and tripeptides and other key nutrients into the muscle cell to the point of creating a high-performance pump effect.

----------------------------------- 

The Unique Mag-10® Formula

The protein in Mag-10® is comprised of a unique di- and tripeptide complex that's transported – unaltered, requiring no further breakdown – directly into the bloodstream. And the particular di-/tripeptide mixture found in Mag-10 produces effects in muscle that go far beyond simple amino acids from other protein sources.

Peptide structures – growth hormone and insulin being examples – have biological activities beyond regular amino acids. The peptide structures in Mag-10 also have biological activities above and beyond regular amino acids, making it a totally different animal. In fact, only 20 grams of protein from Mag-10® stimulates protein synthesis, as well as other muscle building and recovery effects, to a far greater degree than what you would get from 100s of grams of conventional protein.

Additionally, Mag-10® also contains a special carbohydrate mixture that, in addition to increasing metabolic rate, drives supraphysiologic levels of these di- and tripeptides, as well as other vital nutrients, into the muscle cell.

And best of all, the increased rate of recovery and gains you'll experience from Mag-10® pulses will be nothing less than shocking. So, don't hold back in the gym, and go ahead and train your heart out. You'll completely recover, grow, and be ready for more the next day.

Surge Workout Fuel 990g

New / Improved Formula

The new Workout Fuel formula provides the same doses of Citrulline Malate, L-Leucine, Betaine Anhydrous, Beta-Alanine, and Malic Acid as the old formula, but with about half the calories. A double dose of the new formula, for example, contains 50 grams of carbs and 290 calories compared to the old formula's 120 grams of carbs and 570 calories.

We modified the formula by reducing the total carbohydrates per serving from 60 grams to 25 grams. Specifically, we removed two of the three carbohydrate ingredients — Palatinose and D-Glucose — leaving Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin (25 g) as the formula's sole carb source.

Cyclic Dextrin is a super-advanced carbohydrate, and has proven itself to be an essential supplement for anyone pushing training limits. Based on our experience with elite-level athletes, as well as scientific research, 25 grams of Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin is the ideal dose for high-performance demands.

Due to the cost savings, we were also able add two more servings to the container.

The "Secret Stuff" of the Elite

For years Biotest has been producing small batches of custom-made formulas for an elite clientele. These clients include world-class athletes from a variety of professional and Olympic sports, as well as Hollywood actors who must get into phenomenal shape as quickly as possible or lose millions of dollars on their contracts. 

The "secret" supplements we've been able to produce are, without question, the most effective legal substances ever made. They are shockingly powerful, extraordinarily expensive, and make all the difference in the world in achieving the greatest gains as fast as humanly possible – and they have never, ever been available to the general public.

The simple reason we've never made any of these supplements available is that we assumed they were too expensive for people who didn't have lucrative sports contracts. However, we now realize that there are plenty of people who want in; who want the very best, regardless of the price.

Surge® Workout Fuel represents one of five products in our Elite Muscle line, which is designed specifically for elite-level athletes and competitors. For brutal training sessions, check out Plazma.™

The 3 Laws of Muscle

For maximum gains in muscle size, strength, or performance, there are three things you absolutely have to nail, perfectly. The first two you know. The third you might know, but maybe without fully understanding its importance or the specifics required for guaranteeing best gains. Here are the three laws:

The 1st Law of Muscle 

Design and implement the best training program for your goals.

The 2nd Law of Muscle

Rest the body to assure total recovery and super-compensation.

The 3rd Law of Muscle

To guarantee the greatest gains from training, consume the precise compounds required to fully fuel, protect, and reload muscle – which can only be done immediately prior to, during, and immediately after training.

The Impact of The 3rd Law

If you neglect the 3rd Law, or if you don't fully utilize the 3rd Law, you're totally wasting your time in the gym. And drinking many of the concoctions being sold on the market today as "workout formulas," is neglecting the 3rd Law.

However, if you follow the 3rd Law as faithfully as the first two, you'll win every time. In fact, you can virtually blow everything else and still make great gains.

Granted, there's a limit to how much bad behavior your body will tolerate, but the point remains: if you pay the same amount of attention to workout nutrition as you do training and recovery, you'll make the best gains possible.

Double Results!

Surge® Workout Fuel was the first supplement we developed for our elite, private line that harnesses the full power of the crucial 3rd Law of Muscle. We believe that once you use Surge® Workout Fuel, you'll be just like our elite athletes and never want to train without it. In fact, you'll view any non-FUELED training session as a waste of time. 

"This is the simplest, most-effective nutritional strategy in existence to improve body composition and athletic performance," says Dr. Tim Ziegenfuss. "Put simply, elite-level peri-workout nutrition, like Surge® Workout Fuel, can literally double results in body composition during training."

So, are you ready to double the results of your training by taking maximum advantage of The 3rd Law of Muscle?

3-Stack Formula

Surge® Workout Fuel contains three functional "stacks" that together provide everything required for maximum workout performance and recovery.

STACK 1 – Anaerobic Primer

  • Citrulline malate
  • L-Leucine
  • Beta-alanine
  • Malic acid

Effects:

  • Increases directly both skeletal-muscle protein synthesis and ATP production.
  • Combats muscle oxidation (burning) from intense exercise.
  • Scavenges hydrogen ions to optimize intramuscular pH for maximum muscle function.
  • Boosts anaerobic and aerobic performance during exercise.
  • Jumpstarts the recovery process after intense training.
  • Allows the athlete to train harder and recover faster.

Dr. Tim Ziegenfuss:

"Effective dosing of these compounds has unmistakable effects during intense training. Citrulline malate, as well as malic acid, helps increase the elimination of amino acid breakdown products and may even increase the rate of oxidative ATP production (citrulline malate has been used in Europe for over 20 years to treat physical and mental fatigue).

"Leucine is the most important nutritional anabolic signal to skeletal muscle and helps provide the 'spark' to ignite muscle protein synthesis.

"Beta-alanine buffers excess lactate that accumulates during intense exercise, thus reducing fatigue."

STACK 2 – Hyperosmotic Glycogen Load

  • Highly branched cyclic dextrin

Effects:

  • Pulls substrate-loaded fluids into muscle cells.
  • Potentiates glucose transport into muscle.
  • Acts as a powerful anti-catabolic agent.
  • Delays fatigue so you can train harder, longer.
  • Allows for faster rehydration.
  • Maximizes workout quality.

STACK 3 – Superhydration Catalyst

  • Sodium chloride
  • Sodium citrate
  • Sodium phosphate dibasic
  • Potassium bicarbonate
  • Potassium phosphate dibasic
  • Potassium succinate
  • Calcium citrate
  • Magnesium citrate tribasic

Effects:

  • Enhances intracellular and intercellular electrolyte gradients and water balance, producing a hyperosmotic, super-hydrated working muscle.
  • Accelerates rehydration, preventing poor exercise performance, premature fatigue, and muscle cramping.
  • Provides the four major electrolytes (sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium) in the precise ratios required to maintain and restore acid-base balance, blood pressure, nerve conduction, muscle function, body-water distribution, glucose transport, and glycogen storage.

Dr. Jeffrey Stout:

"What that means is, the runner can run one more mile and the bodybuilder can rep out two more sets."

Who Needs Surge® Workout Fuel?

Dr. Stout recommends:

"Anyone can benefit – the strength, bodybuilding, or endurance athlete. This formula is designed to stimulate protein synthesis and reduce catabolism, delay fatigue, and provide sustained energy for any type of intense or high-volume workout or competition."

Dr. Ziegenfuss sums it up:

"If you train intensely, then Surge® Workout Fuel is an absolute requirement. On the other hand, if you're not into hard training, don't bother buying the stuff! Workout Fuel is overkill for those who aren't serious about training."

Christian Thibaudeau adds:

"The more volume of physical activity you engage in (not just weightlifting), the more benefit you'll get out of Surge® Workout Fuel. The harder you train, the more you need it. If you do nothing but talk to the treadmill bunnies between non-intensive sets, then Surge® Workout Fuel isn't for you. Save it for those who earn it!"

Do you train hard enough to earn it?

No apologies, no overstated hype, and absolutely no watering down the product to make it more economical. Surge® Workout Fuel is an elite supplement for elite athletes and those who train like them.

So if you're dead serious about training and want to double the results of your hard work, then we're making this formerly "secret supplement" available to those who truly deserve it.

Do you train hard enough to earn it? Decide now.

Surge Recovery 1408g

Stimulate Anabolism and Jump-Start Recovery

Surge® is designed to stimulate anabolism and jump-start recovery when it's absolutely most important for making gains — post workout. The formula stimulates a hormonal (primarily insulin) surge that drives high concentrations of certain nutrients, supplied by the drink, deep into the muscle cell.

And if you're successful at achieving this cascade effect, you'll stop catabolism and stimulate anabolism, big time! In fact, it's estimated that you can speed up your body's recovery rate and build muscle by a minimum of one full day, which can make the difference between being the typical hard-gainer and at least a good-gainer.

In reality, there're probably very few true hard-gainers. In fact, if you took everyone who's having a hard time making progress and just got them to consume ample amounts of the right mix of nutrients post workout, the vast majority would make consistent, continual muscle-mass gains.

Really, it's that simple — and that hard. The hard part of effective post-workout nutrition is determining the right blend of nutrients in the ideal ratios. The good news is, we've done the research and testing, and have taken the guesswork out of the equation. In essence, you could say that Surge® turns on the switch to muscle gaining hyper-drive.

The Ultimate Recovery Formula

The first thing you'll notice about Surge® is it tastes great, which is no easy feat to accomplish, considering the ingredients. The great taste, however, isn't the big payoff. Far more important is the hormonal (primarily insulin) surge you get right after you drink the formula. As a result of this surge, high concentrations of certain nutrients, supplied by the drink, are driven deep into the muscle cell.

The hard part of effective post-workout nutrition is determining the right blend of nutrients in the ideal ratios. Well, we've done the research and testing, taking the guesswork out of the equation. Yes, we've talked at length about most of the ingredients that comprise our post-workout formula, but we've never revealed the exact ratios between the compounds and which ones were the real keys to making the drink effective.

Well, we're not stupid (most of the time, anyway). This formula may be one of the most powerful supplements to ever hit the market. We know it, and our competitors know it. Accordingly, we want to protect our investment in the formula, plus we need to be compensated for our efforts.

After all, fair is fair. We paid the R-and-D price, and we had the ingenuity to successfully accomplish the goal. It wasn't easy, either. If simply throwing some glucose, maltodextrin, whey-protein hydrolysate, and BCCAs into a few ounces of water was effective, we wouldn't have made the formula.

But that wasn't the case at all. To make the drink produce the level of anabolic/anti-catabolic effects we were after, we had to spend a lot of time in the lab testing our theories. And I'm here to tell you it's tough to make this stuff and get everything right.

Anyway, Surge® is one of those supplements that actually works a whole bunch better than you could ever hope for. The people who've tried our formula have all had the same experiences. More specifically, they saw dramatic increases in recovery ability, which translated into newfound muscle-mass gains.
