Weight-Loss Ingredients Proven in Two Clinical Studies¹,²Fast-Acting Energizing Effects³Powerful Weight Loss¹,²Female-Friendly Ingredients: Folic Acid & Iron

Two Clinical Studies: Subjects Lost Significantly More Weight and Reduced BMI (Body Mass Index).

Data analysis of the results from both clinical trials on the key ingredients in Pro Clinical Hydroxycut Max shows there is statistical significance for test subjects having lost 7 times more weight versus placebo subjects.

¹Study One: In a double-blind, placebo-controlled, clinical trial conducted by third-party researchers, individuals taking the key ingredient combination (Max! ProDefine, Alchemilla vulgaris, Olea europaea, Cuminum cyminum, Mentha longifolia) lost an average of 20.94 lbs. over 12 weeks, compared to those using a placebo who lost an average of 1.70 lbs. Test subjects also significantly reduced BMI versus the placebo group (10.2% vs 0.9%). Both groups followed a calorie-reduced diet.

²Study two: In a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial conducted by third-party researchers, individuals taking the same key ingredient combination lost an average of 16.50 lbs in 8 weeks compared to those taking a placebo, who lost an average of only 1.73 lbs. Test subjects also significantly reduced BMI versus the placebo group (8.l% vs 0.8%). Both groups followed a calorie-reduced diet.

L-Methionine Powder

What is L-Methionine?

L-methionine is an essential amino acid required by the body to synthesize S-Adenosyl_methionine (SAMe), a naturally occurring compound found in almost every tissue and fluid in the body.SAMe plays a role in the immune system, helps maintain cell membranes and helps produce and break down brain chemicals such as serotonin, melatonin and dopamine.L-methionine is integrated with Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in producing SAMe.Methionine is an intermediate in the production of two other sulfur-containing amino acids,cysteine and taurine, which enhance the body’s natural ability to eliminate toxins, build strong tissues and support cardiovascular health.The body utilizes sulfur to develop hair follicles and promote healthy hair, skin and nail growth. Sulfur improves the production of lecithin in the liver, which reduces liver fat, protects the kidneys, reduces bladder irritation by regulating the formation of ammonia in the urine and helps the body excrete heavy metals.Methionine is one of three amino acids needed by the body to manufacture creatine , a compound used for energy production and muscle building. This nutrient is found primarily in muscle tissue, and provides the energy muscles need to move. Creatine supports normal functioning of the heart and circulatory system.Methionine is lipotropic, assisting the liver in processing fats (lipids) more efficiently. Other lipotropic compounds include cholineinositol and betaine (trimethylglycine), all of which help ensure normal liver function. Methionine also supports liver function by maintaining healthy glutathione supplies, which neutralize toxins in the liver.

Health Benefits of Methionine

L-Methionine helps regulate the availability of folic acid, a vitamin necessary during pregnancy.Methionine also improves the body’s ability to synthesize muscle protein. As a source of sulfur, it is required for the synthesis of other substances important for the efficient production of energy in the body such as choline, creatine and carnitine.It assists in the breakdown of fats, supports the digestive system and helps eliminate toxins from the body since it can be converted to cysteine, a precursor to glutathione and another necessary ingredient in cleansing the liver.Methionine is an effective antioxidant. The sulfur it supplies intercepts and wards off free radical molecules that can damage cell membranes.

Other benefits of methionine are as following:

 improves tone and pliability of hair, skin, and nails as it is essential for the formation of healthy collagen
chelates heavy metals, allowing them to be eliminated from the body
helps prevent premature ejaculation
helps prevent chronic depression
reduces the levels of inflammatory histamines in the body

 helpful for treating urinary tract infection as it stops bacteria from sticking to and proliferating in the walls of the urinary tract 

Suggested Use of Methionine

The suggested serving size for L-methionine is 500 milligrams taken one to two times per day, depending upon individual needs. 1/4 teaspoon serving will supply about 500 milligrams of this product.

Side Effects of Methionine

L-methionine is safe at suggested serving sizes. Studies have not found any drug interactions associated with methionine. Excessive use may cause side effects such as nausea, vomiting, drowsiness and irritability. It is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing.

Mixing and Solubility of Methionine

L-Methionine has a sweet-and-sour flavor and dissolves quickly in hot water, but will not dissolve readily in cold water. Mix with hot water and a sweetener and drink.

IRONMAXX 100% WHEY PROTEIN — 900 g powder

0

Milestone in the protein sector: First 100% water-based whey protein developed!

Whey protein is appreciated not only in bodybuilding as an excellent source of protein, but also for endurance athletes, martial arts practitioners and amateur athletes as a post-workout shake. Especially when the protein is most needed, a preparation with water is recommended. The product development department of IronMaxx® has been particularly successful in this regard and especially in overcoming the hurdle that to date all protein powders have been designed to be mixed with milk. When conventional protein shakes are prepared with water, taste and consistency often suffer. The specifications for the development department of IronMaxx® were therefore quite clear: “The new protein powder also has to taste great with water,” said Patrick Kruczkowski, CEO of IronMaxx® shortly before development began. The 100% Whey Protein does this more than justice, because it not only tastes wonderful, but has also been specifically designed for preparation with water.

The advantages of protein drinks mixed with water are varied and of great importance, especially for bodybuilders and body conscious people who do not want to leave anything to chance. By mixing protein powder with water, less calories and fats (which are otherwise contained in milk) are added. So you take only the amount of nutrients that are contained in 100% Whey Protein in the best composition.

In 30 unique flavors!

In 30 delicious, unique flavors, the new 100% whey protein from IronMaxx® can be ordered: Cookies & cream, cherry yogurt, lemon yogurt, melon, orange and passion fruit and many more. The “classic” flavors – chocolate, vanilla and strawberry are also available. IronMaxx® followed its passion for developing the most effective sports nutrition products for body builders and athletes without compromising on taste.

Whey protein for optimal protein supply!

The average protein recommendation for athletes is approximately 2 g per kilogram of body weight to build muscle. Advanced exercisers and competitive athletes often use 3 to 4 g of protein per kilogram of body weight and thereby achieve excellent results.

100% Whey Protein by IronMaxx®, with elevated protein content (up to 80% per 100 g of powder) helps to meet your daily protein requirements and thus to promote the increase and preservation of muscle mass in particular. In addition, 100% Whey protein is characterized by a great amino acid profile (BCAA, Glutmain and more) and high biological value. The higher the biological value, the faster food protein can be converted into endogenous protein. To support a healthy normal muscle function, 100% Whey Protein also contains training-essential minerals potassium, calcium and magnesium. Therefore Whey Protein IronMaxx® is considered to be your ideal source of protein after a workout or as a perfect snack.

The protein content

– contributes to an increase in muscle mass
– contributes to maintaining the muscle mass

The calcium content contributes to

– normal energy metabolism
– normal functioning of digestive enzymes

The potassium content helps

– normal muscle function
– maintenance of normal blood pressure

The magnesium content

– reduction of tiredness and fatigue- normal energy metabolism- normal muscle function

– normal protein synthesis

Take as needed up to 4 servings daily. Basically, the increased protein needs of a person depends on the age, gender, and training status. Recommended consumption is before exercise or competition, directly after training and before sleep.

Tribulus Terrestris 45% steroidial saponinins – Powder

0

Therapeutic Uses, Benefits and Claims of Tribulus Terrestris

Tribulus terrestris was used as a weapon by South African tribes. The thorny seeds were collected, dipped in poison and then placed on the ground waiting for rival tribes to step on.

Tribulus contains active compounds called steroidal sapoins which are mainly found in the leaf of the plant.

Tribulus seems to work by increasing the levels of luteinizing hormone. This hormone sends a signal through the body to start producing testosterone which is why it has become popular herbal remedy to increase libido and as an herb to improve fertility naturally.

The popularity of tribulus as an herbal remedy for erectile dysfunction might be because of its ability to relax smooth muscles and by this allowing greater blood flow to the genitals.

Because of its claim to increase testosterone levels naturally, it has become popular herb for body building and as a remedy to gain weight for men.

Although the above are some of it’s more commonly known uses it has been used traditionally for variety of other ailments. In Europe, China and India, herbalists have found some success in using tribulus as a natural treatment for lowering blood pressure and as an herb for high cholesterol It has also been used traditionally for nervous disorders, constipation and to stimulate the central nervous system and for the treatment of some types of headaches.

Tribulus terrestris demonstrates anti-microbial and anti-tumor properties as well. Finally, in addition to the plant’s active substances which seem to lower cholesterol, it also appears to act as an antioxidant.

Some researchers are also getting positive results in the use of it for hypertension and diabetes treatment but more studies are needed.

   Below are some of the benefits from supplementing with Tribulus:

  • Improves muscle growth & body strength 
  • Reported to enhance libido sexualis & erectile function 
  • Reported to increase the number and motility of spermatozoa 
  • increases LH levels by 72% and testosterone levels by 41% in only five days
  • Helps in alleviating some symptoms associated with male menopause 
  • No adverse effects 
  • No toxicity and side effects 

     Tribulus is an excellent supplement to take at the end of a prohormone cycle to help kick start your own testosterone production again. And it can also be effectively used to increase strength gains and aid in helping you get over a plateau.

Dosage and Administration

The usual dosage of tribulus terrestris is  500mg two-three times daily, with meals.

  • Digestive Disorders
  • Fragile Hair & Nails

  • Toxic Build-up
  • Ulcers

     A body made up of healthy, flexible cells will not only feel better, it will look better too. The body is continuously at work replacing old, worn out cells with new ones. The process goes on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without stop. When all the raw materials needed for cell-building are available, it is a very efficient process. When there are deficiencies, the new cells may be weak, rigid or deformed.

     One of the most important raw materials for building healthy new cells is a form of organic sulfur known as methyl sulfonyl methane (MSM). This element is so essential to life that it is found in every cell of every plant and every animal. Sulfur makes up 0.25% of human body weight. However neither plants nor animals can use elemental sulfur directly. Sulfur is not easily available to living organisms in its inorganic form.

     MSM is not a medicine, a drug, or a food additive. It is a food. MSM is an organic form of sulfur that can be easily absorbed and utilized by the body. Although DMSO and MSM are chemically similar, each is unique. MSM is a pure, stable, white crystalline powder without the unpleasant smell or taste of DMSO. (1-3) Also, MSM does not give you a strong body odor like DMSO.

     Since sulfur is a component of all cells, it is essential that the body have a plentiful supply of this mineral in its usable form. There is a positive synergistic effect on building healthier cells when MSM is taken in combination with vitamin C. The new cells are more pliable and permeable, allowing fluids to pass through the tissue more easily. (1) Internally this means more efficient elimination of toxins, a reduction in inflammation and pain – so you feel better. On the outside it shows up as a softer, smoother complexion, stronger hair and nails – so you look better.

MSM for Relief of Pain and Inflammation

     Approximately half of the total body sulfur is concentrated in the muscles, skin and bones. One of the most significant uses of MSM as a supplement is its demonstrated ability to relieve pain and inflammation. When rigid fibrous tissue cells swell and become inflamed, pressure and pain result. Since MSM can restore flexibility and permeability to cell walls, fluids can pass through the tissues more easily. This helps equalize pressure and reduce or eliminate the cause of pain. Harmful substances such as lactic acid and toxins are allowed to flow out, while nutrients are permitted to flow in. This prevents the pressure buildup in cells that causes inflammation. (1)

     MSM has shown a remarkable ability to reduce or eliminate muscle soreness and cramps both in geriatric patients and in athletes. It’s even given to race horses before a race to prevent muscle soreness, and afterward to reduce the risk of cramping. People with arthritis report substantial and long-lasting relief with MSM supplements. Taken along with glucosamine, a key substance in the process of rebuilding cartilage, MSM can relieve pain and help repair worn or damaged cartilage in joints, ligaments and tendons with healthy, flexible new cells. (1)

How Does MSM Work?

     MSM makes cell walls permeable, allowing water and nutrients to freely flow into cells and allowing wastes and toxins to properly flow out.   The body uses MSM along with Vitamin C to create new, healthy cells, and MSM provides the flexible bond between the cells. Without proper levels of MSM, our bodies are unable to build good healthy cells, and this leads to problems such as lost flexibility, scar tissue, wrinkles, varicose veins, hardened arteries, damaged lung tissues, dry cracking skin, digestive disorders, joint problems, and inability to defend against allergic reactions to food, animals and plants.

     MSM is an anti-oxidant that helps to clean the blood stream and flush toxins trapped in our cells.  It is also a foreign protein and free radical scavenger.  In order to maintain good health, we need to supplement our diets with MSM, to enable the body to heal itself.   The body uses what it needs, and after 12 hours will flush out any excess amounts.

The Beauty Mineral for Hair, Skin and Nails

     Sulfur has been called nature’s “beauty mineral” because it is needed to keep the hair glossy and smooth and keeps the complexion clear and youthful. It is needed for synthesis of collagen and is prevalent in keratin, a tough protein substance necessary for health and maintenance of the skin, nails and hair.

     MSM is responsible for the flexible disulfide bonds between cells, including those that make up the skin. It blocks undesirable chemical and physical cross-linking or bonding of collagen which is associated with tough, aging skin. Con consequently MSM enhances tissue pliability and encourages repair f damaged skin. If there is insufficient sulfur in the body when new cells are being manufactured, the new cells will be rigid. This rigidity can contribute to cracking, wrinkling and unsightly scar tissue. When sufficient sulfur is present for new cells, the skin is softer, smoother and more flexible. MSM provides that sulfur.

Acne, including the severe acne rosacea, responds favorably to MSM supplements. Adequate sulfur and vitamin C are also needed for healing. When the body is deficient in these nutrients, the new tissue will be elevated leaving an unattractive, raised scar. Because MSM makes the skin more permeable and pliant, it can also help prevent blistering and promote faster healing from sunburn or wind damage.

     With MSM supplements, nails show not only an increase in growth rate, but also increased toughness and resistance to chipping and cracking. This effect has been seen both in human nails and horses hoofs.

Allergens, Toxins and Parasites

     Flexible, permeable cells are also important in that they allow toxins, allergens and foreign substances to be flushed out of the body more easily . When skin cells are soft and permeable, many toxins can be eliminated through the sweat glands, which takes some of the load off the liver and kidneys. While MSM is not a cure for allergies, supplementation may reduce symptoms by allowing allergens to be removed from the body more quickly. Even reactions to insect bites, poison ivy and poison oak are less severe when the diet is supplemented with MSM. Vitamin C is also synergistic in this application in that it can lower histamine levels.

     MSM has also shown amazing anti-parasitic action against Giardia, Trichomonas, roundworms, nematodes, Enterobius and other intestinal worms. When parasites attach themselves to the intestinal lining, they can live, reproduce and rob the body of nutrients indefinitely. MSM blocks parasites by competing for receptor sites on the mucous membrane. When parasites can not attach themselves, they are simply flushed out of the system.

     The same is true with food allergens. MSM coats mucosal surfaces and occupies the binding sites that could otherwise be used by challenging food allergens. It can also bind with offending agents to produce harmless substances which are then excreted from the body. This facilitates normal digestion and assimilation and allows the body to get maximum nutritional value from foods that would otherwise cause a reaction. Individuals who experience an allergic response to certain foods have reported improved or complete tolerance to those foods when they take MSM supplements. Healthy flexible colon tissues along with improved digestion, can also relieve constipation.

Diabetes

     Sulfur is also a component of insulin, the hormone that regulates carbohydrate metabolism and insufficient sulfur may result in decreased insulin production. It is also possible that a lack of bio-available sulfur would make the cells so rigid and impermeable that they become unable to absorb sugar from the blood efficiently, leaving blood sugar levels elevated. Studies indicate that regular MSM supplements which cause the cell to become permeable, could help balance blood sugar and allow the overworked pancreas to return to normal.

Why Supplement?

     Since sulfur is present in every cell of every living thing, it might seem that we would get plenty of this essential mineral from dietary sources and should not need supplements, but that may not be the case. Meat, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy products are the main sources of dietary sulfur, but we have been advised to restrict or remove many of those foods from our diets. Vegetarians, especially those who do not eat eggs, are at particular risk for sulfur deficiency. Plants cells contain sulfur but not in abundant quantities and much of the MSM present in unprocessed foods is lost in washing, cooking or steaming. And, of course, MSM levels decline noticeably with age – doesn’t everything? So, the older you get, the more important it becomes to maintain adequate sulfur levels in the body.

Usage and Toxicity

     Due to its positive effects, particularly in maintaining healthy cell formation, 2,000 to 6,000 mg. of supplemental MSM daily is recommended. Of course, the optimum daily dosage of MSM depends largely on body size, age and the nature and severity of any deficiency symptoms you may be experiencing. Since vitamin C provides a positive synergistic it should be taken along with MSM.

     MSM ranks in the “extremely low” toxicity category with a toxicity profile similar to that of water. When oral supplements are taken, the body will distribute MSM where it is needed. After about 12 hours, any excess amounts will be flushed out of the body. MSM, a member of the sulfur family, should never be confused with sulfa drugs to which some people are allergic.

Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (AAKG) Powder

What Is AAKG (L-Arginine) 

     L-ARGININE IS AN ESSENTIAL AMINO ACID THAT IS REQUIRED FOR A NUMBER OF VITAL FUNCTIONS within our body. Essential Amino Acids cannot be synthesized by our body, therefore we must obtain these Amino Acids through supplementation or diet. 
     L-Arginine has been popular with the Medical Community for the past 30-40 years (several Medical Journals and Books highlighted the benefits of L-Arginine back in the 1970’s) . It’s primarily used to help INCREASE HGH PRODUCTION AND IMPROVE BLOOD FLOW TO TISSUES throughout the body. It’s also well known for it’s Libido Enhancing benefits for both Men & Women.

Stimulates Increased NO (Nitric Oxide) Production

     In more recent years, L-Arginine is becoming very popular as a NO (Nitric Oxide) stimulator. NO (Nitric Oxide) is a Messenger Molecule that controls many of the physiological and pathological processes within our body. NO (Nitric Oxide) plays a VITAL ROLE IN CONTROLLING THE BLOOD FLOW TO ALL THE MUSCLES AND ORGANS THROUGHOUT THE BODY , therefore optimal levels of NO (Nitric Oxide) are essential for our health. 
     Clinical studies have shown that L-ARGININE PROVIDES A LARGE NUMBER OF HEALTH BENEFITS FOR BOTH MEN & WOMEN, and low levels could potentially lead to health problems. Due to the extensive amount of health benefits provided by L-Arginine, hospitals all over the world have been providing L-Arginine Intravenously to patients for the past three decades.

Poor Absorption Limits L-Arginine’s Benefits 

     Although this powerful Amino Acid provides a large number of health benefits, it has one significant problem. L-ARGININE HAS VERY POOR ABSORPTION IN OUR BODY, therefore our body has a very difficult time digesting and absorbing L-Arginine. 
     Clinical Studies have shown that OUR BODIES ARE ABLE TO UTILIZE LESS THAN 50% OF THE L-ARGININE that we consume. Unfortunately, the remainder of the L-Arginine product is excreted from our body in the form of waste. The low percentage of absorption is what forces hospitals to provide the L-Arginine Intravenously instead of Orally.

AAKG Doubles The Absorption Rate

     AAKG (L-Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate) is a uniquely structured form of L-Arginine that COMPLETELY ELIMINATES THE ABSORPTION PROBLEM. (AAKG) L-Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate is formed by combining two molecules of L-Arginine and one molecule of Alpha-Ketoglutarate. AAKG utilizes a different enzymatic pathway than regular L-Arginine, which ALLOWS OUR BODY TO ABSORB OVER 90% OF THE AAKG THAT WE CONSUME. 
     In addition to doubling the absorption rate, AAKG INCREASES BLOOD FLOW 200-300% MORE EFFICIENTLY THAN REGULAR L-ARGININE. With AAKG’s high rate of absorption and utilization within the body, there is no need for Intravenous L-Arginine. Oral supplementation of AAKG has proven to be significantly more effective than Intravenous supplementation of Regular L-Arginine.

 How Many Grams of AAKG Powder Are In A Teaspoon?

How to Use AAKG?
