MUSCLE GEL

PRODUCT CATEGORY:

Protein, Pre workout, Post workout

SERIES:

Hybrid

MUSCLEGEL SUMMARY:

MuscleGel is specifically designed to supply 22 grams of the highest quality protein available in a convenient, incredible-tasting, rapidly absorbing format using ProFusion gel solution. Use MuscleGel in place of any protein food choice in your healthy nutritional program.

MUSCLEGEL BENEFITS:
  • 22 grams of protein/0 grams of sugar
  • Easily digested and absorbed
  • Fast and convenient source of protein
  • Loaded with all nine essential amino acids and BCAAs
  • Helps build lean mass and quicken recovery
  • More protein than a whole chicken breast
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM TAKING MUSCLEGEL:

Individuals who want a substitute to proteins found in a regular diet or protein drink and are seeking a convenient, fast absorbing, high quality source of protein.

KEY INGREDIENTS/PROPRIETARY BLENDS IN MUSCLEGEL:

Whey protein hydrolysate:

Whey protein hydrolysates are pre-digested proteins (broken down into amino acids).  This breakdown leads to faster absorption by the body thus rapidly rebuilding and repairing muscles after a workout.[1]

Whey protein isolate:

Whey protein isolates digest and absorb rapidly and are, gram for gram, the purest form of protein (90-98% pure protein).[2,3]

Profusion technology:

A molecular process whereby specific nutritional elements, such as high-quality protein or powerful energy-yielding nutritional substances, are suspended in a super-absorbent gel medium.

PRODUCT USAGE:

Consume 1 or more servings daily to fortify your protein intake, or as needed to satisfy your protein or muscle-building nutritional needs.

FITMISS BCAA

PRODUCT CATEGORY:

Pre workout, post workout, recovery

BCAA SUMMARY:

BCAAs are a staple in the lives of many athletes and active individuals, accounting for nearly 1/3 of the amino acids in muscle protein. They play key roles in the repair and growth of muscle tissue. FitMiss® BCAA is the perfect combination of BCAAs to increase lean body mass and even aid with fat loss.

BCAA BENEFITS
  • Promotes muscle development and maintenance
  • Supports lean muscle growth
  • Reduces muscle breakdown
  • Optimizes recovery
  • Convenient powder form
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM TAKING BCAA:

Individuals who want the benefits of a BCAA blend in a convenient powder form and who are looking to support lean muscle growth, recover faster, and decrease muscle breakdown.

KEY INGREDIENTS/PROPRIETARY BLENDS IN BCAA:

Leucine:

Leucine is one of the essential amino acids that helps induce muscle growth. Leucine has the capacity to stimulate muscle growth (protein synthesis) and has been suggested to slow muscle damage after intense training.[1,2]

Isoleucine:

Isoleucine helps create the energy (glucose) your body burns for energy.[3,4]

Valine:

Like leucine and isoleucine, valine encourages muscle tissue growth while providing energy from energy (glucose) creation. It also acts as a facilitator for normal growth and a reparative agent for various tissues in the body.[5,6,7]

PRODUCT USAGE:

As a dietary supplement, consume one serving (1 scoop) of FitMiss BCAA mixed into 6-8 oz. of cold water, one to three times daily.  For optimal use: take between meals, 30-45 minutes before workouts, during workouts, and/or immediately after workouts.

AMINO 1 BLACK SUMMARY:

Amino 1 Black is an all-in-one recovery and hydration formula, loaded with the most advanced ingredients and built on real science to fuel recovery on the field and in the gym.  Best of all Amino 1 Black has no proprietary blends

AMINO 1 BLACK BENEFITS:
  • No proprietary blends
  • 10 grams of amino acids to aid recovery
  • Hydrate with coconut water
  • Loaded with electrolytes
  • Zero sugar
  • Zero calories
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM TAKING AMINO 1 BLACK:

Those interested in a non-proprietary blend sports drink or individuals/athletes who want the combined benefits of hydration, energy, and recovery in one drink.

KEY INGREDIENTS IN AMINO 1 BLACK:

BCAAs (L-Leucine, L-Valine, L-Isoleucine):

Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) can promote muscle repair (muscle protein synthesis) and increase muscle growth over time. It can also be used to prevent fatigue in novice athletes and quicken recovery time.[1,2]

Coconut Water Powder:

Coconut water contains a complete balance of electrolytes (minerals in your blood), which may maximize absorption and rehydrate better than water or a typical sports drink.[3]

Amino Acids:

Amino 1 contains over 10,000mg of amino acids (broken down proteins).  Amino acids serve as the “building blocks” for muscle repair and growth.  Amino acids can also be used as a source of energy.[4,5]

Electrolytes, such as sodium and potassium, help keep your body fluids balanced.  When individuals exercise electrolytes are lost through sweat and must be replaced to maintain balance.  Failure to replace electrolytes can lead to muscle cramping and other adverse consequences.[6,7]

Glutamine:

Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body.  Glutamine is effective at replenishing energy for muscles (glycogen) after exhaustive exercise which may lead to quicker recovery.[8]

L-Carnitine:

L-Carnitine may promote fat burning (oxidation) which could result in higher endurance performance.  It has also been shown to reduce markers of muscle damage.[9]

Caffeine Anhydrous:

Caffeine anhydrous is a powerful stimulant, and it can be used to improve physical strength and endurance.[10]

TeaCrine:

Teacrine works with the body’s natural metabolic processes to deliver longer lasting energy, increase mental clarity and improve mood and motivation.[11]

Creatine Monohydrate:

Creatine monohydrate is the purest form of creatine and serves as an immediate reserve for energy (ATP) during exercise.  It also supports an increased training capacity and muscle mass.[5]

Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT):

Studies suggest replacing calories with MCTs without exceeding daily caloric requirements can result in a small, but significant, increase in the rate of fat loss over time.[6]

PRODUCT USAGE:

Mix 4 scoops (262g) of Combat Black Weight Gainer in 12-16 oz. of water and consume 1-3 times daily.  To increase your protein intake per serving and achieve a delicious milkshake taste, use skim or low fat milk.

WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM TAKING CREATINE BLACK:

Those who want a non-proprietary blend creatine supplement that increases strength, power, and lean mass while deriving the additional benefits of enhancing mitochondrial health and blood flow from NAD+ and arginine.

KEY INGREDIENTS IN CREATINE BLACK:
Creatine HCL:

A form of creatine that dissolves easier than creatine monohydrate.  This may lead to better absorption and lower dosages.  Creatine is the most effective and researched supplement today which has been shown to increase strength, power, lean mass, and performance.[1,2,3]

Creatine Monohydrate:

Creatine monohydrate is the purest form of creatine and serves as an immediate reserve for energy (ATP) during exercise.  It also supports an increased training capacity and muscle mass.{4}

BioPerine Black Pepper:

BioPerine significantly enhances the bioavailability of various supplement nutrients through increased absorption.[5]

Arginine:

L-Arginine supports blood flow to and from muscles. L-Arginine also triggers the body to make protein and has been studied for potential applications in healing wounds, bodybuilding, and preventing tissue wasting in people with critical illnesses.[6]

Niagen NAD+:

Niagen maintains and enhances mitochondrial health by boosting NAD+ levels and inducing creation of new mitochondria.

PRODUCT USAGE:

Mix 1 scoop of Creatine Black in 8-10oz. of water, juice or your favorite protein beverage and consume before, during, or after training.
