DUAL ACTION PROTEIN / CASEIN BLEND - MUSCLE BUILDING POWER*
Whey & Casein for Maximized Recovery
Following the science, [THE BRACKET]™ POST WORKOUT supplies an optimized blend of antibiotic-free, rBGH-free Whey Protein (from grazing cows) and Casein. Research shows this is an ideal protein combination for maximizing muscle protein synthesis and decreasing muscle protein breakdown after your workout—the critical period for muscle growth and recovery.*
Experience the Dual Advantage
By combining Whey and Casein, the end result is a "dual metabolic advantage"
that tips the scale in favor of building muscle (and recovering from intense
physical activity), more so than using any single source of protein by
CREAPURE™ -- FOR MAXIMAL STRENGTH AND RECOVERY*
Creatine is the single most effective, research-based dietary supplement for enhancing gains in anaerobic performance, lean body mass and muscle size with well over 450 published human clinical trials! It has been shown to increase fat-free mass, improve maximal strength and muscular endurance, and anaerobic power/performance (in activities that include repetitive jumping, jump squats, resistance exercise, sprinting, etc.).* With the bevy of different creatine forms on the market, creatine monohydrate from Creapure™ is hands down the most well-studied, reliable creatine in the world. Recent research suggests that supplementing with creatine in the acute POST-workout period enhances gains in strength and muscle mass (Antonio J., 2013).* However, it has been shown to still be beneficial when utilized PRE-workout, hence we have removed any doubt by using [THE BRACKET]™ to flank your training, and cover all your bases.
IMMUNEL™ -- FOR POST WORKOUT IMMUNE SUPPORT*
It has been established that the immune system plays a critical (yet often under-appreciated) role in the recovery, and adaptation of muscles (and all body systems) after exercise, sport and high-intensity activity. These tissues release signals that attract various cells of the immune system into the area to help with the entire well-orchestrated post-exercise recovery process. IMMUNEL was developed as an ultra-concentrated, specialized fraction of colostrum whey containing low molecular weight bioactive peptides that are known to support and bolster the immune system.* The high-potency blend of bioactives in IMMUNEL include proline-rich peptides, IgF-1, transforming growth factor, sialic acid and nucleotides for immune wellness, brain health, and post-exercise tissue repair.*
BCAA ACTIVATED MUSCLE BLEND -- FOR MUSCLE RECOVERY AND GROWTH*
Deploy the tested power of these essential branched chain amino acids to boost muscle recovery and growth. BCAA’s help to trigger muscle synthesis and help minimize the breakdown of muscle tissue. Not only do they play a role in muscle production, BCAA’s have also been found to help fight post workout muscle soreness, making them a cornerstone of any post-exercise growth and recovery plan.*
CMO JOINT COMPLEX™ -- POWERFUL SUPPORT FOR JOINT COMFORT AND MOBILITY*
CMO Joint Complex is a unique proprietary blend of cetylated, functional fatty acids including cetyl myristate, cetyl myristoleate, cetyl oleate among others. Research on cetyl myristoleate suggests it plays a role in maintaining joint mobility, joint comfort and range of motion. CMO Joint Complex is suggested to support normal immune responses within joint tissues that help maintain healthy cartilage structure and function.* Most recovery products focus only on recovery of muscle, without addressing the ever important connective tissues that support your muscles, and allow for optimal joint health. Why not support the joints and connective tissue that you rely on to be your best ON and OFF the field, court, track, gym or any of life's stages?
CLUSTER DEXTRINS -- HIGHLY BRANCHED CYCLIC CHAINS – GLYCOGEN REPLETION
Not all carbohydrates are created equal! Cluster dextrins are a pure, highly branched cyclic chains of glucose polymers-- these carbohydrates that are known to have a very low osmolarity allowing for ultra fast gastric clearance. In English--> these carbohydrates don't cause as much fluid shifting into the stomach to avoid the "sloshing, full and bloated" sensation that athletes often describe from other carbohydrate sources. Preliminary research suggests that due to its unique structure, the cluster dextrins allow for rapid initiation of glycogen repletion, but do so in a very slow, sustained fashion for those looking to control body composition and stay lean. Studies in animal models show that highly branched cluster dextrins allow for rapid-onset, yet steady-sustained & longer-lasting ability to supply glucose, which helps delay the onset of fatigue and endurance.*
FUNCTIONAL LIPIDS COMPLEX™ -- REGULATE BODY SYSTEMS*
Conventional sports nutrition theory discourages the use of fats (even, the most functional healthy essential fatty acids) during the immediate post-workout period. However, at 1800Athlete, we are committed to staying ahead of the curve, by utilizing solid scientific evidence as the foundation from which to innovate. The post-exercise phase provides a unique opportunity not only to enhance the delivery of key amino acids, carbohydrates, electrolytes an micronutrients, but also the potential to drive essential fatty acids into target tissues. Ultimately, it is the incorporation of these omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids into cell membranes of tissues that provide the critical reservoir for making eicosanoids. Eicosanoids are potent, hormone-like compounds that are derived from essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids "raw material." These eicosanoids help to regulate many body systems...in these vitally important roles eicosanoids help maintain healthy cardiovascular function, nerve function, lung function and more!* The potent flaxseed and borage extracts provide key levels of essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
NITRIC OXIDE SUPPORT* -- REGULATING VASODILATION FOR OPTIMAL EXERCISE GAINS*
Beet roots contain an abundance of inorganic nitrates, which the body more efficiently converts to nitric oxide relative to using amino acid pathways such as arginine or citrulline. Of course, nitric oxide helps with regulating vasodilation to deliver blood and oxygen to muscle tissue along with many other physiological processes, such as mitochondrial respiration, energy production and muscle contraction. Dietary nitrates can alter the energy cost of exercise, thereby better matching energy supply with demand. This has been shown to lead to improved performance and exercise tolerance.*
ELECTROLYTE MATRIX -- INTRACELLULAR REPLETION*
The electrolyte matrix within [THE BRACKET]™ POST WORKOUT system was not chosen at random. Instead it has been optimized for supporting rehydration and intracellular repletion, in addition to supporting the body's acid-base balance. Healthy electrolyte status supports energy production, stamina, endurance and fluid balance.* All of which are paramount for serious elite or recreational athletes.
PROHYDROLASE™ -- FOR HEALTHY PROTEIN ABSORPTION*
You are what you absorb! Prohydrolase is a unique enzyme blend that helps the body break down and absorb protein, minimizing the occasional bloating and cramping that often accompanies the use of other post-workout products.*
