WEIGHT LOSS

Fat Burners Burn Factor is a unique combination of L-Carnitine, Choline, Inositol, Chromium Picolinate, Kelp, L-Tyrosine, White Willow Bark, and Citrus Aurantium. Fat burners help break-down, transport and metabolize fat cells.

Carb Blocker Scientifically designed, all natural ingredients, which may help reduce caloric intake. Ultimate Carb/Fat Blocker includes chitosan which can absorb up to five times its weight in fat. In addition, phaseoulus vulgaris has shown the ability to prevent the breakdown of starches. Chormium and vanadium are included which may help regulate blood sugar levels.

Caffeine Caffeine is a natural substance found in at least 60 plants. Caffeine is well absorbed by the stomach and intestine, and peak blood levels occur about 45 – 60 minutes after ingestion. Caffeine ingestion can benefit endurance performance when consumed in proper amounts.

L-Carnitine L-Carnitine is synthesized the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine. L-Carnitine is widely used for burning fat, increasing energy, and improving resistance to muscle fatigue.

 

STRENGTH & RECOVERY

Creatine Creatine Monohydrate is a nutrient that is found in a variety of foods. The richest source is lean red meat. Creatine is one of the muscles main energy sources and when converted in the muscle tissue to phosphcreatine during exercise it can provide sudden bursts of energy.

GlutamineGlutamine is the most abundant free amino acid found in the muscles for the body. Because it can readily pass the blood-brain barrier, it is known as brain fuel. L-Glutamine decreases sugar cravings  and the desire for alcohol.

HMB HMB is a metabolite of the branched-chain amino acid leucine. It is found in both plants and animals and is particularly concentrated in alfalfa and grapefruit. It has been suggested that HMB is effective at building strength, increasing lean body mass and enhancing recovery because it guards against or slows muscle proteolysis (protein breakdown).

Nitric Oxide Nitric Oxide is a free form gas that is produced in the body and is used by the body to communicate with other cells in the body. Nitric oxide is the muscle’s “cell-signaling” molecule responsible for blood flow (hemodilation), oxygen delivery, glucose uptake, muscle velocity, power output, and muscle growth.
 

 

GENERAL NUTRITION

Multi Vitamin The body requires a good balance of a wide variety of nutrients. A multi-vitamin and mineral supplement should be what you use to provide a foundation for living a healthier and longer life.

Antioxidant Found in many fruits, vegetables, plants and trees, antioxidants have hundreds of protective nutrients that protect our bodies from “free radicals” which enter our body cells and tissues. Antioxidants reduce stress ulcers, improve the circulatory system and help collagen fibers keep their elasticity.

Fiber Found in many foods, fiber helps to lower the blood cholesterol level and stabilize blood sugar levels. It helps prevent colon cancer, constipation, obesity and many other disorders.

Glucosamine Glucosamine occurs naturally in the body and has proven effective in easing osteoarthritis pain, rehabilitating cartilage, renewing synovial fluid, and repairing joints that have been damaged from osteoarthritis.

Calcium Calcium is the most common mineral in the human body. Approximately 99% of total body calcium is in the skeleton and teeth and 1% in blood and soft tissues. Calcium is also needed for muscle contraction, blood vessel contraction and expansion, the secretion of hormones and enzymes, and sending messages through the nervous system.

 

 

ENERGY & VITALITY

GinsengAn herb that helps normalize various body functions, ginseng is widely used for energy, mental activity, stress and blood pressure. Excellent for strengthening the whole body.

Bee Pollen Described in ancient writings as a “super food”, bee pollen is nearly 35% protein and contains nearly every known nutrient required for a balanced diet: 22 amino acids, 27 minerals, most of the known vitamins and many enzymes.

Spirulina Nature’s richest and most complete source of total organic nutrition. Spirulina is extremely high in protein (65% - 70%) and contains over 100 nutrients. The power food of the future, spirulina is packed with pro vitamin A and many B vitamins. Spirulina activates the immunes system and helps to protect from degenerative diseases.

Ginkgo Biloba Ginkgo Biloba is best known for its ability to enhance circulation. It has the ability to squeeze through even the narrowest of blood vessels to the heart, brain, and all other body parts. It increases memory as well.

Caffeine Caffeine is a natural substance found in at least 60 plants. Caffeine is well absorbed by the stomach and intestine, and peak blood levels occur about 45 – 60 minutes after ingestion. Caffeine ingestion can benefit endurance performance when consumed in proper amounts.
