Muscletein Ultra-7 Protein

Muscletein Ultra-7 Protein is an advanced extended release, multipurpose protein specially formulated for lean muscle accrual, muscle definition, and weight management. Muscletein Ultra-7 Protein contains seven important protein components to feed your muscles for up to 8 hours with only the finest quality ingredients for maximum absorption and bioavailability. Muscletein Ultra-7 Protein tastes absolutely delicious as a shake, smoothie, addition to oatmeal, or with your favorite juice. Try some delicious Muscletein Ultra-7 Protein today!
7 Protein Components keep your muscles nourished with a steady stream of muscle-building blocks and aminos for hours after ingesting:
  • Sustained Release Protein Matrix: Whey Isolate Peptide, Caseins and Egg Albumin: These proteins provide the body with essential building blocks to produce the amino acids that are used for shaping muscle, which results in building and retaining muscle tissue. Casein proteins and egg albumin digests slowly, ensuring that your muscles never run out of protein building blocks for optimal muscle growth.
  • Glutamine Peptides: Glutamine Peptides serve as efficient sources of glutamine for maintaining whole-body glutamine supplies, and thereby, creating a stable muscle-building balance that ensures better absorption in the body.
  • Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) and Essential and Non-Essential Amino Acids: Help metabolize protein in the muscle, rather than the liver which is important because these proteins are used to build muscle and produce energy.
  • Bioactive Protein Utilization Enzymes (Aminogen� and Papain): This protein promotes optimum protein digestion, faster muscle recovery and absorption, improving uptake of amino acids and nitrogen retention by the muscle.
  • MCT's (Medium Chain Triglycerides) and EFA's (Essential Fatty Acids): MCT's are a fast-burning energy source, much like a carb. They promote the oxidation of fat over carbohydrate, and help regulate appetite while also burning fat. EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids) are not produced by the body and must be consumed in order to prevent deficiency and aid the production of energy.
  • Fiber Matrix: Fiber supports gastrointestinal health, increasing the surface area that the body can absorb nutrients across, which increases nutrient uptake and utilization.
  • Great Tasting Formula: GAT's advanced flavor system means an absolutely delicious protein shakes that tastes like a real milk shake, and it's a healthy meal option for your busy lifestyle.
Jesus this stuff is soooo sweeeet! I thought my teeth were going to fall out after drinking this sweet vanilla mix. I'm not complaining though, the Champion Nutrition is sweet too, and I drink that all the time. I've never seen a protein mix in water so well, hardly froths up or anything.

taken straight after a hard back/biceps/abs workout with wobbly fingers after.

celcius


boosts your metabolism, gives you more energy for 3 hours.

taken before morning workout, i'm wary of trying these things in the evening just in case i'm buzzing my tits off at midnight.

sounds a bit like a caffeine loaded energy drink. 10 mins exercise and a good night's sleep would be an equivalent.

tasted good though.

animal cuts


I'm not so sure about taking a supplement that removes water from the body. Creatine needs water in the muscles for twitching power. I think this supplement is marketed towards bodybuilders who are 3 weeks away from competition. It's not something I should supplement my diet with on a regular basis to be fit and healthy.

I've read reviews of 'Human Torch' type energy for 4 hours, sleepless nights, constipation, and radical weight loss. A few other reviews said it did nothing. You have to take 9 pills at a time with this supplement.

Lets give it a go!

You want cuts? You want that grainy, etched look? Then you need something to take care of both the fat and the water. When you need to look dry and hard, there´s only one Animal Cuts.

Animal Cuts. Since nearly a decade ago when Schak wiped his mighty brow in the iconic "Cardio Sucks" ad, the most hard of the hardcore have depended on Animal Cuts when being lean alone simply wouldn´t suffice. The earliest of editions to the Animal line, Cuts did for your typical fat burners what Pak once did for multivitamins - rendered all others obsolete.

Designed specifically with the needs of advanced bodybuilders in mind, Cuts was formulated to produce dramatic changes in an athlete´s physique in a brief period of time. To get ripped, shredded, peeled... That was what the Cuts user demanded and that is precisely what they got. That was then and this is now, and though so much has changed, some things always remain the same.

The Animal Cuts formula is advanced and complete, including ingredients designed to stimulate metabolism and thermogenesis, training focus and diuresis, muscle preservation and thyroid function as well as providing added energy and suppressing appetite. In this way the Animal Cuts formula is everything the dieting iron athlete needs, totally comprehensive--the supplement bottom line when it comes to displaying the hard muscularity you seek. It is up to you to supply the desire, to stay on your diet and eat clean, to bring it in the gym and on the treadmill. You put in the hard work and Animal Cuts will take care of the rest.

Though it seems impossible to top the results reported by the legions of Cuts loyalists over the years; those that have long regarded Animal Cuts as their secret weapon in the fight against bodyfat, that was exactly the intent from the get-go for the brothers behind the scenes at Animal. It was a tough task, but tough is the only way Animal knows. The higher our standards, the better our products, the more legit your results. Cuz at the end of the day, just like us, results are all you care about anyway.

With Animal Cuts you get an all-inclusive product. Think of it as one-stop-shopping, everything-you-need-in-a-single-pack. Talk about convenience. You don´t have to think about anything, just pop a pack and right down the hatch. It ain´t your conventional fat burner. This new Animal Cuts formula maintains the spirit of the old - comprehensive and complete fat shredding power, just taken up to the next level. Unlike most conventional "fat burners" out there, Animal Cuts is more than just a thermogenic. It is a complete and comprehensive fat shredding formula that targets fat loss from multiple angles. Each convenient pack now delivers over 40 active ingredients. Every day, for 21 consecutive days, you´ll get nearly 8,500 milligrams of pure fat shredding power to kick start your cutting goals.

The Animal Cuts formula is made up of eight distinct components which we´ll break down in more detail below: (1) thermogenic complex; (2) metabolic complex; (3) thyroid complex; (4) diuretic complex; (5) nootropiccomplex; (6) cortisol inhibiting complex; (7) CCK inhibiting complex; and (8) our special bioavailability complex. Clearly, Cuts is complete from top to bottom.

As a thermogenic, Animal Cuts is extremely powerful. Thermogenesis is the "burning" of calories from stored bodyfat. This in turn increases body temperature and provide a source of utilizable energy to the body. Animal Cuts includes potent thermogenics. You get pure caffeine anhydrous, methylxanthine-rich herbs - kola nut, guarana, yerba mate, as well as raspberry ketones, coleus forskohlii and evodiamine. The ingredients in the thermogenic complex help boost the body´s natural ability to burn stored body fat via thermogenesis and even better, Animal Cuts is lean mass-sparing. On a side note, Cuts has a special. Like its brothers, Animal Pump and Animal M-Stak, you can now easily remove the thermogenic complex. Just remove the single red capsule. You´d be surprised how often we got this question in the past...

From a metabolic point of view, Animal Cuts, is stacked with only the most potent tea extracts. From green tea extract to oolong tea extract to white tea extract to black tea extract, it´s all covered here. These concentrated tea extracts have all been standardized for their potent polyphenol content, including EGCG as well as various other powerful catechins that work synergistically to raise your body´s core metabolism. An increase in core metabolism means an increase in the rate at which your body converts food that is eaten into energy. In short, a faster metabolism equates to less food being stored as bodyfat. Coffee bean extract is also added for its potent Polyphenol content which includes the metabolic boosters - caffeic and chlorogenic acid. Such factors can be the difference in giving your metabolism the kickstart it needs to begin really processing bodyfat.

When it comes to shedding excess water weight, the kind that gives your body a soft, puffy look, Animal Cuts is extremely efficient. With 800mg of active ingredients including dandelion root (taraxacum) and uva ursi (arbutin, methyarbutin), hydrangea root, celery seed and juniper berry. Animal Cuts works alongside the thermogenics and metabolic boosters to give you a completely shredded, razor-sharp look. The problem synthetic diuretics is that they often deplete the body of key electrolytes, including potassium. When this happens, your muscles lose their pump and size. The diuretic complex in Animal Cuts contains potassium-sparing herbs, thus allowing you to preserve muscular fullness. For whatever reason, if you need or want to remove the diuretic complex, just remove the two blue capsules. How sweet is that?

Athletes who are dieting run the risk of slowing down thyroid function. Reduced calories, increased stress and intense training all lower key thyroid hormones, putting the body in a catabolic state which can actually make fat loss harder. Animal Cuts contains specialized extracts of olive leaf and guggul as well as the amino acid l-tyrosine, which all work to support healthy thyroid gland function and output. When your thyroid gland is working at peak output, metabolic rate and thyroid hormone production is maximized, resulting in optimal fat loss.

Finally, three additional components round out Animal Cuts potent formula. The first of these is a nootropic complex which contains important brain boosting ingredients like DMAE, beta-phenylalanine and bacopa monniera. They are purported to work to maintain proper brain chemistry and also allow for better focus and increased alertness during the workout. Another benefit of nootropics is increased oxygen supply to the brain and the increase of neurotransmitter output and neuromuscular performance.

The second of Animal Cut´s final components are CCK Inhibitors, aka appetite suppressors. Animal Cuts contains herbs like hoodia, joboba seed and cha-de-bugre which are known to help cut down on sugar and carb cravings, something that every dieting bodybuilding experiences to one degree cone contest prep time. It is clearly easier to keep it clean when the munchies are held at bay.

Animal Cuts is then rounded out by a special bioavailability complex. Ingredients like the patented Bioperine®, ginger root, 6,7-Dihydroxybergamottin, as well as a few citrus bioflavonoid extracts work to ensure that you get the all of the potent fat shredding components of Animal Cuts into your system at a proficient rate. Cuz with ingredients like the new Cuts formula, you don´t want to miss a milligram.

Ripped, shredded, peeled... You know the deal. When it comes to really getting lean, when contest shape is in your sights, look to Animal Cuts. The strict dieting, calorie-crunching, ball-busting battles with the weights and beating up the treadmill for miles a day are the necessary evils of attaining the condition you so desire and that, well, that simply can´t be bought in a can. But if you have the balls to step up and are willing to pay your dues, like always, we´ve got your back. Animal meets your hunger half way with the all-new, more powerful, reformulated Animal Cuts, designed to be the difference maker. Cuts is the final element between just being jacked and being Animal - between merely being defined and being ripped, being shredded, being peeled.

universal nutrition - super cuts 3



What is SuperCuts?

There are so many fat burner that come so close to being different that it makes you wonder if they even did any research at all. Super Cuts 3 is one of those fat burners that when compared to leading fat burners like Phenterfein, they really aren’t even in the same league. Super Cuts 3 is just a below average product with ok ingredients. It is not the ultimate fat burner or even the “ultra maximum potency formula” that Universal Nutrition claims it is.

Super Cuts 3 does contain some good ingredients like Green Tea, which has been proven to help people lose weight. It also contains a decent amount of Uva Ursi and Grapefruit powder. The majority of the formulation is composed of L-Carnitine, Lecithin, Choline and Inositol. Lecithin really is useless, l-carnitine helps metabolize food into energy, choline has been shown to only enhance memory capacity in humans and rats, and inositol, which is essentially Vitamin-B, also helps to metabolize fat.

Essentially what you get as far as fat burning goes in Super Cuts 3 is a L-Carnitine/Green Tea supplement. There are better, more potent and effective sources of these supplements available. I wouldn’t recommend Super Cuts 3 as a potential fat burner to anybody.

trying vibram five fingers



If I had ordered online I would have gone for a 28.0, when I tried them on they were far too big.

They do a 27.3 which is just right. Once you wiggle your little toe into position they are suprising comfortable!


I'm ordering these online:
