Reduces The Aches & Pains That Often Accompany Heavy Training!Endurance athletes vigorously stress their muscles, joints, and connective tissues, often times straying beyond the border of maximum training to the inhospitable territory of overuse injury. If you are the unfortunate victim of an overuse injury, you want a formula that reduces inflammation, soreness, and pain, promotes rapid repair, and gets you back into action as quickly as possible. Tissue Rejuvenator, newly reformulated for 2004, is that formula. A mega-potent dose of a wide variety of nutrients-including glucosamine sulfate, chondroitan sulfate, MSM, undenatured type II collagen (UC-II)-provides an extraordinary range of benefits. For relief from inflammation and swelling, for reducing the aches and pains that oftentimes accompany heavy training, and for aiding in the repair of damaged tissue, Tissue Rejuvenator is the endurance athlete's valuable ally, ready to go to work for you so you can get back into your training regimen faster and stronger.What's In Tissue Rejuvenator:Glucosamine sulfate is classified as an amino sugar, a type of carbohydrate used for structural tissues instead of as an energy source. It is the basic building block/raw material in joint cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. Glucosamine sulfate plays a major role in the synthesis of collagen, cartilage, bone, skin, and various lubricating fluids in joints. Glucosamine sulfate helps promote elasticity of joint movement and also functions as a mild anti-inflammatory.Chondroitin sulfate is a natural component of several tissues in the body. Like glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate is one of the important building blocks for the repair of damaged cartilage. One of chondroitin sulfate's important functions is its ability to block the activity of enzymes that break down cartilage. This helps reduce inflammation and protects cartilage from further damage. Chondroitin sulfate also promotes lubrication and cushioning in the joints.Methylsulfonylmethane, better known as MSM, is a metabolite of dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), a well-known solvent, which has been used topically as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory. MSM is an organic form of sulfur, which is necessary for proper synthesis and maintenance of tissues such as skin, hair, nails, tendons and cartilage. MSM has been reported to reduce joint pain.Tissue Rejuvenator's Enzyme Blend of peptidase, bromelain, papain, amylase, lipase, cellulase, and phytase not only aids in the complete absorption of the nutrient components in the product, it provides its own potent anti-inflammatory benefits.Boswellia serrata is an Ayurvedic herb that has been extensively as an anti-inflammatory. Its primary active ingredients are triterpene acids.Devil's Claw is a South African herb containing substances called iridoid glycosides that have anti-inflammatory properties. It is also purported to help relieve mild stomach upset.Yucca Root is frequently used to joint pain. It contains high levels of beneficial phytochemical compounds known as saponins.Turmeric (Curcuma longa) contains a substance called curcumin, which has not only anti-inflammatory properties but also liver protecting and antioxidant properties as well.Quercetin is a water-soluble flavonoid typically found in onions, apples, leafy vegetables, and other food sources. It is both a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory and may also act as an antihistamine.Undenatured Type II Collagen (UC-II) is a patented, extensively studied dietary ingredient derived from chicken sternum cartilage. Through a complex process called oral tolerization, UC-II works with the immune system to promote healthy joints and increase joint mobility and flexibility.Tissue Rejuvenator BenefitsDecreased pain, inflammation, and swellingStronger, healthier joints after an injuryIncreased joint mobility and flexibilityDecreased reliance on NSAID useQuicker return to normal training
THE SECRET NEW BEEF PROTEIN TECHNOLOGY USED BY KAI GREENE TO PACK ON MUSCLE AND WIN THE 2009 ARNOLD CLASSIC!Kai Greene has been working closely with MuscleMeds researches as a test subject on some experimental formulas prior to making them available to the public. When evaluating Kai's protein intake, MuscleMeds researchers noticed Kai was making far better muscle gains when eating beef than when using whey or casein supplements. At one point, Kai was eating 6 to 9lbs of beef a day and making great gains, but the high consumption of beef was causing stomach distress and also elevating Kai's fat intake and cholesterol beyond where the MuscleMeds research team wanted it. This prompted the development of CARNIVOR, all beef protein isolate, which Kai used to pack on muscle and capture the Arnold Classic Crown.Beef Protein Isolate is More Concentrated Than Steak and More Concentrated Than WheyUsing extraction, clarification, hydrolysis and isolation technologies CARNIVOR's Bioengineered Beef Protein Isolate delivers the muscle building power of beef with higher amino acid levels than many other protein sources used in supplements including: whey, soy, milk and egg. CARNIVOR Beef Protein Isolate is even 350% more concentrated in anabolic muscle building aminos than a prime sirloin steak! And it has no fat or cholesterol!Anabolic Nitrogen Retention Technology (ANRT) Recyles Aminos and Minimizes AmmoniaWhile protein is critical for muscle growth, paradoxically, consuming more protein can sometimes actually decrease performance and muscle growth if nitrogenous waste products like ammonia are not recycled back into anabolic tissue building pathways or otherwise neutralized. ANRT is specially designed to promote the recycling of aminos back toward the muscle-building pathway to address the build-up of debilitating toxic scavengers such as ammonia. ANRT nitrogen retention factors contained in Carnivor include: GKG (Glutamine-alpha-ketoglutarate), OKG (Ornithine-alpha-ketoglutarate), AKG (alpha-ketoglutarate) and KIC (alpha-ketoisocaproate).Carnivor was formulated to support the recycling of aminos back into the muscle building pathways for optimal nitrogen retention and promotion of muscle growth and performance.More Creatine Content than SteakOne of the benefits of eating beef is its naturally high creatine content. Beef is one of the best natural sources of creatine. To support the cell volumizing effects of creatine, each serving of CARNIVOR has more creatine than steak to saturate your muscles for explosive strength and growth.*Added BCAA for Increased Anabolic and Anti-Catabolic EffectsTo further promote the muscle building action of CARNIVOR, additional Branch Chain Amino Acids are added to the purified Beef Protein Isolate. The enhanced BCAA levels promote a positive nitrogen balance, support protein synthesis, improve workout performance and address muscle fatigue.BEEF-UP with CARNIVOR!
The Anabolic Halo Hardcore Pro Series formula is an all-in-one post-workout musclebuilding solution developed with seven proprietary blends and is powered by three scientifically advanced key ingredients, including ingredients documented in groundbreaking university studies. Check out how these core ingredients deliver eight important elements that make Anabolic Halo Hardcore Pro Series a truly advanced post-workout anabolic formula.1. Amplifies Testosterone Receptors: The first element in Anabolic Halo Hardcore Pro Series increases the number of testosterone receptors for greater potential of free-testosterone utilization at the muscle fiber level. Note: Free testosterone is the only usable form of testosterone for pure, unadulterated growth. After 21 days of a third-party study involving 10 resistance-trained subjects, one of the powerful ingredients in Anabolic Halo Hardcore Pro Series increased the number of testosterone (androgen) receptors significantly more than when subjects used a placebo. The researchers in the study theorized that this led to greater free-testosterone utilization. This study was published in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise.2. Insulin Manipulation: The second element directly manipulates insulin, allowing vital nutrients to be shuttled into cells. This creates an anabolic environment conducive to muscle growth.3. Increases Muscle Fiber Area: The third element of Anabolic Halo Hardcore Pro Series works to increase muscle fiber area through rapid hypertrophy. A third-party study published in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports and Exercise involving 22 untrained subjects divided into three study groups showed that subjects using a key ingredient in Anabolic Halo Hardcore Pro Series gained significantly more muscle than subjects using a placebo after 12 weeks.4. Increase Musclebuilding Strength: The fourth element uses a key ingredient in Anabolic Halo Hardcore Pro Series to deliver muscle building strength gains. In the same study mentioned directly above, subjects significantly increased their strength compared to subjects using a placebo.5. Activates Human Myogenic Regulatory Factors: The fifth element directly manipulates key myogenic regulatory factors to create a powerful anabolic response. In a second study that utilized muscle biopsies from the same study outlined in elements three and four, subjects using a key ingredient in Anabolic Halo Hardcore Pro Series increases myocellular levels of anabolic growth precursors of myogenin by 61% and MRF-4 by 65% in 12 weeks.6. Myocellular Expansion: The sixth element floods your muscle cells with cell-volumizing agents for increased myocellular expansion. Researchers theorize that myocellular volumization is an important factor for rapid muscle tissue growth.7. Muscle Cell Recovery: The seventh element of Anabolic Halo Hardcore Pro Series delivers a muscle cell recovery agent that allows you to significantly improve recovery time between sets.8. Micro-Diffuse Technology: With the eighth element, Team MuscleTech researchers employed Anabolic Halo Hardcore Pro Series with Micro-Diffuse Technology. This is designed to enhance the dispersion properties of a key musclebuilding agent.

A dietary supplement to support immune system, circulatory, cardiovascular, and neurological functions; muscle recovery and endurance. Dimethylglycine (DMG) is a nutrient which is found in the cells of both plants and animals. The human body produces DMG in very small amounts. Supplementing the diet with higher levels of DMG greatly improves the nutritional environment of the cell. Dimethylglycine has been found effective in supporting immune system function and better utilization of oxygen at the cellular level. FoodScience of Vermont has been issued three U.S. Patents for N,NDimethylglycine's value and use in improving immunity and for benefiting cellular processes. DMG reduces lactic acid build up in the muscle thereby shortening recovery time after strenuous exercise and improving endurance.
EPOZINE-O2™NT is BSN®'s revolutionary anabolic mediator & ergogenic plasma volumizer. Designed to promote superior physical performance & endurance, blood-volumizing plasma expansion, and significantly greater increases in lean muscle mass, EPOZINE-O2™NT is an athlete's answer to myocellular (muscle) growth and expansion.These myocellular increases are mediated by enhancing maximal oxygen uptake capacity, delivery and consumption and increasing erythropoietin and red blood cell count, all the while accelerating protein synthesis and myohypertrophic activation via promotion of a positive nitrogen balance. EPOZINE-O2™NT is the next-generation key to unlocking your muscular evolution.HighlightsSustained-release formula promotes all-day vascularity, muscle density and pumpsSupports optimal red blood cell production and plasma expansion as well as oxygen delivery and uptakePromotes elevated VO2max (maximal oxygen consumption)Increases aerobic and anaerobic working capacity of muscle tissueEnhances recovery from exercise helps fight against muscle breakdownBenefitsHeightened N.O. production allows for improved blood flow, enhancing delivery and uptake of oxygen and nutrients to working muscle tissue as well as removal of fatigue-associated waste materialIncreased red blood cell production allows for greater oxygen-carrying capacity and plasma expansionEnhanced 2,3-DPG production leads to greater loading of muscle tissue with oxygen, leading to markedly increased endurance, recovery and overall cardiovascular performanceThe rapid resynthesis of ATP leads to greater muscular strength and endurance, lending a hand to muscle hypertrophy and performanceStimulation of protein synthesis (anabolism) helps to increase the size of the muscle (hypertrophy) all the while helping to offset muscle breakdown (catabolism) from intense trainingFAQsI notice that there are some similar ingredients in EPOZINE-O2™NT as in NITRIX®. What is the difference in these two products?Contained within EPOZINE-O2™NT are a few similar ingredients that are also contained in NITRIX®; primarily ingredients that function as vasodilators. Both products are designed to help the body produce more nitric oxide, thus relaxing the blood vessels and allowing them to expand. However, this is where their similarities end. In addition to aiding in the dilation of blood vessels, EPOZINE-O2™NT has been designed to help maximize oxygen uptake and capacity and, more importantly, the delivery, or loading, of oxygen into muscle tissue. This loading of oxygen aids in one's endurance, recovery from exercise and overall aerobic capacity. These processes are fortified by the increased production of erythropoietin, red blood cells and the compound known as 2,3-DPG (2,3-diphosphoglycerate). Additionally, EPOZINE-O2™NT contains a comprehensive blend of insulino-mimetic agents that aid in the regulation of insulin as well as increasing the delivery of nutrients to muscle tissue. Not only does this help to increase the fullness and vascularity of muscle tissue, it also lends a hand in fighting against muscle degradation and promoting protein synthesis. Lastly, with the inclusion of Peak ATP® and Creatine Magnesium Chelate, ATP resynthesis is significantly increased, leading to greater strength, power and resistance to muscular fatigue.I am not very familiar with red blood cells and erythropoietin. How do they help to increase my physical performance?Erythropoietin (pronounced i-rith-roh-poi-i-tn) is a glycoprotein hormone produced by the kidneys that stimulates red blood cell production by stem cells in bone marrow. Decreased levels of oxygen in body tissue activate erythropoietin production. Erythropoietin also activates the production of hemoglobin, which is the portion of the RBC (red blood cells) that primarily carries oxygen to various tissues. The greater the amount of oxygen delivered to the muscles, the greater the enhanced physical performance. Enhanced oxygen delivery to the muscles decreases lactic acid production, and muscular fatigue, as well as increasing endurance, strength and recovery. Erythropoietin also has the potential to directly stimulate muscle growth and recovery by the promotion of STAT5, PI3-kinase/AKT, p70S6k and MRF (myogenic regulatory factor).One of the highlights of EPOZINE-O2™NT is protein synthesis. How does that work?EPOZINE-O2™NT contains a variety of novel and meticulously sourced ingredients designed to promote protein synthesis as well as offset muscle degradation (catabolism). One such compound is 6-Methyluracil. 6-Methyluracil is a methylated group of the nucleotide uracil. It is involved in the synthesis and repair of RNA and DNA, which are responsible for protein synthesis in the body. Additionally, potassium has been added for its various roles in metabolism and body functions and is essential for the proper function of all cells, tissues, and organs. Potassium assists in the regulation of the acid-base balance, protein synthesis from amino acids, and carbohydrate metabolism, and it is necessary for the building of muscle and for normal body growth. On fighting against muscle degradation, several nucleotides (Cytidine 5'monophosphate, Uridine 5'monophosphate, Guanosine 5' monophosphate, Adenosine 5' monophosphate, Inosine 5' monophosphate) have been incorporated into EPOZINE-O2™NT. These nucleotides are a group of compounds that consist of nucleosides and phosphates, which provide the building materials for the formation of the nucleic acids DNA and RNA.
The Days of Sacrifice are Over!Finally! Now you don't have to sacrifice great taste to get the energy or performance nutrition you want. That's because Promax tastes fantastic. In fact, in a chocolate flavor taste test, Promax was picked #1. Promax offers you 11 mouth-watering flavors, each bar smothered in thick folds of rich chocolate or creamy smooth yogurt. Each one totally satisfying to your taste buds and to your body's nutritional needs!A Giant Step Beyond Ordinary Energy BarsYes, you'll find Promax bar loaded with energy-sustaining carbs, essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and the important antioxidants A,C, and E. But Promax takes a giant step beyond ordinary energy bars. We added 20 grams of high-quality protein to give you the added nutrition to keep you performing at peak levels!Promax Gives You the Performance Nutrition You Need!What's the best way to maintain peak performance levels day after day? Proper recovery after training. Sure eating extra protein is important. But without adequate carb intake, you may not be giving your body the tools to recover completely. You see, after a workout your body's #1 goal is to replenish its energy supply. Your body's preferred energy source is glycogen, and it makes glycogen from the carbohydrates you eat. Without sufficient dietary carbs, your body "steals" the energy it needs from protein. That leaves you with less protein to repair and build muscle. Worse, it may cause a breakdown in existing muscle. But that's why there's Promax. Promax gives you the protein-to-carb ratio you need to recover fully. With Promax you get both 20 grams of high-quality protein and the ideal amount of energy-rich carbs. Your body gets the energy it needs. Your muscles get the protein they're looking for. You get the great-looking body you want.
