Three removable compartments for pre/during/post workout intake
Accepting just any supplements is now a thing of the past as Core 150™ allows for you to take your choice of nutrition with you at all times. Three separate compartments allow for you to insert your pre, intra and post workout supplements
Core 150™ can carry 150 grams of powder
Unlike any other Shaker Bottle on the market you can now store 150 grams of powder in your shaker cup, 200 if you include the shake you might have just mixed on the way out the door but who's bragging?
No need to transport powders separately
If, like many of us, you transported your powders around in separate containers in a desperate bid to ensure your nutrition was at hand when you needed it but later discovered you had no scoop to measure out your intake! With core 150 our individual compartments have been strategically designed to deliver 50 grams of powder alleviating any measuring issue that you once might have had.
Not just for powder supplements
Core 150™ can be used to transport more than just supplements. Keep fruits, snacks, vitamins or other dietary edibles on hand for throughout the day.

This helps with mass gain powders which require more fluid than your average shaker cup can hold. The Core 150™ system also ensures maximum hydration during the day and throughout your workout.
Rhodiola Relax is formulated to help provide support during demanding and stressful periods. The three adaptogenic herbs; Rhodiola, Withania and Gotu kola assist by helping to enhance energy and stamina levels, improve mental concentration and improve feelings of general wellbeing and a calm healthy mood when work, emotional or physical demands are high.
Rhodiola rosea, is a small succulent herb sourced from the high arctic regions of China, Tibet and Russia. It has the dual properties of physically assisting with improved energy and stamina levels whilst enhancing mental alertness and concentration during demanding times, particularly in the work environment. Rhodiola may also help relieve the mild anxiety and fatigue associated with stressful conditions.
Withania and Gotu kola are well known in the Indian Ayurvedic medicine tradition as nervous system restorative Medhya Rasayanas; being herbs or nutritional substances that are regarded as being beneficial for improving general vitality and wellbeing, enhancing mental calmness and aiding memory and cognition during periods of stress or increased demand.
Testosterone is much more than a sex hormone. Testosterone improves oxygen uptake throughout the body, helps control blood sugar, regulates cholesterol and maintains immune surveillance. Mitochondria use testosterone for Kreb’s cycle to occur and energy to be produced. There are testosterone receptor sites in cells throughout the body, most notably in the brain and heart. Protein synthesis for maintaining muscle mass and bone formation requires testosterone. Testosterone decreases body fat and enhances lean muscle mass.
Testosterone enhances aerobic metabolism. This has the result of improving muscle tone, burning fat, and improving energy. Indirectly, it is suggested that changes in testosterone also effect mood. Studies have clearly shown that increased testosterone levels have a beneficial effect on overall health, weight, libido, and energy in men. Each ingredient in TestostroGROW 2 HP works toward the same goal: to potentiate testosterone. Each ingredient follows a different path to achieve this result.
The bioflavonoid chrysin has shown potential as a natural aromatase-inhibitor. Studies demonstrate that chrysin is an extremely potent inhibitor of aromatase ativity. Chrysin is also a potent antioxidant that possesses vitamin-like effects in the body. It has been shown to induce an anti-inflammatory effect, possibly through inhibition of the enzymes 5-lipoxygenase and cyclooxygenase inflammation pathways. Chrysin may offer libido-enhancing effects as well by increasing free testosterone, decreasing excess estrogen and producing an anti-anxiety effect.
Tribulus terrestris is a plant that grows in many tropical and moderate climates around the world. It is steroidal saponins, particularly the dominant saponin protodioscin, that are responsible for the pharmacological activities of tribulus. Tribulus terrestris boosts testosterone levels by stimulating the increase of luteinizing hormone (LH). When LH levels are increased, the natural production of testosterone also increases.
Cucurbita Pepo and Saw Palmetto Extract are another resource to prevent testosterone from becoming “deactivated.” The Cucurbita Pepo seeds’ principal constituent inhibits the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone. As a natural source of zinc, Cucurbita Pepo also helps to optimize the production of testosterone. Saw palmetto berries consist of of a volatile oil, which is high in phytosterols. These ingredients not only control the conversion of testosterone to DHT (DHT is formed when the male hormone testosterone interacts with the enzyme 5-alpha reductase) but also block it from binding to prostate cells, which reduces the level of inflammation in the prostate. Saw palmetto also has anti-estrogenic and anti-androgenic effects.
When testosterone binds to SHBG (sex hormone-binding globulin), it loses its biological activity and becomes known as “bound testosterone,” as opposed to the desirable “free testosterone.” Nettle root extract provides a unique mechanism for increasing levels of free testosterone. Constituents of nettle root bind to SHBG in place of testosterone, thus reducing SHBG’s binding of free testosterone. Nettle also inhibits the binding of DHT to attachment sites on the prostate membrane and inhibits enzymes such as 5 alpha reductase that cause testosterone to convert to DHT. The combination of Nettle Root with Avena Sativa also leads to an increase of aerobic power and muscle strength.
Avena sativa is a botanical extract that has traditionally been used to increase strength, mind, spirit and body. It has also been found to free up testosterone that’s stuck to other compounds in your body. Avena sativa is a recognized mood enhancer and has traditionally been used as a remedy to help with recovery from exhaustion and low mood. It works well as an addition to tribulus, enhancing feelings of well being and restoring energy.
Researchers have observed that metabolism of estrogen occurs via one of two pathways: The ‘harmful’ metabolic pathway, 16 alpha-hydroxylation, or the ‘beneficial’ metabolic pathway, 2-hydroxylation. Indole-3-Carbinol (I3C) can shift the production of estrogen metabolites away from dangerous 16-hydroxy in favor of beneficial 2-hydroxy metabolites. Indole-3-carbinol is converted by stomach acid to di-indolymethane (DIM) and indole (3,2,b) carbazole (ICZ). DIM produces more ‘good’ estrogen metabolites, which compete with testosterone for protein binding, helping to maintain a higher free testosterone level. The ‘good’ estrogen metabolites, along with increased free testosterone promoted by DIM, increase fat mobilization and a fat-burning metabolism.
Another reason testosterone production can decline is because of oxidative damage directed at the tissues that synthesize testosterone. Antioxidants support testosterone production. This is where Daidzein and Alpha Lipoic Acid do their best work. Daidzein is an isoflavone. This compound, found only in plants, has antioxidant activity. Alpha Lipoic Acid also acts as an antioxidant, repairing a wide array of free radical damage at the cellular level, keeping cells healthy and aiding in nutrient absorption. Alpha Lipoic Acid aids in the conversion of carbohydrates into energy, improves metabolism and normalizes blood sugar.
Hawthorne Berry is rich in flavonoids. It has the ability to dilate coronary blood vessels (the vessels supplying the heart with vital oxygen, blood, and nutrients), and strengthen the heart’s pumping ability. Some of the flavonoids increase the force of contraction of the heart by inhibiting the enzyme cAMP phosphodiesterase (the enzyme responsible for breaking down cyclic adenosine monophosphate). Cyclic AMP is an intracellular secondary messenger of luteinizing hormone (LH).
TestostroGrow 2 HP is a versatile time-release anabolic stack that combines the most effective testosterone stimulators available. It has been precisely formulated to potentiate testosterone in order to ensure a steady, nonstop state of increased testosterone for more successful anabolic results.

Whole 30 Paleo
Nori seaweed (Porphyra umbilicus) is most familiar as the wrapping around sushi, and is also known as "purple Laver" due to the inky-black colour, that oddly, turns bright green when toasted. Sea Power Natural Nori is hand-harvested wild from the clean, clear Atlantic Ocean in the Canadian Maritimes then sundried on specially prepared rock fields in a timeless manner for a very low carbon footprint. With a slightly sweet, incredibly mild taste, this might just be our new nutritional power-packed favourite!
Leaf is delicious straight out of the bag, or lightly crisp-ed in a dry skillet or similar (colour will change to bright green). Use Leaf/Flakes crumbled over soups, grains, salads, stirfries, bread mixes, stocks, popcorn or any savoury dish. NOTE: Adding seaweeds to the pot when cooking legumes or pulses (like beans or lentils) can shorten cooking time.
Feel like a celebrity! With zero fat, 30% fibre, and a protein content comparable to legumes (30%), this might just be the perfect food for slimmers & Hollywood! And of all the common edible seaweeds, Natural Nori is the highest source of Vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12, C & E. It's also a good source of all the carotenes (eg. Vitamin A), potassium, phosphorous, magnesium and by weight, has 10 times more calcium and iron than dairy. But wait, there's more! Natural Nori contains approximately 50% soluble fibre (eg. alginate) -- a very important component of any comprehensive, wholistic dietary program for cholesterol or blood sugar management.
1. What does it taste like?
Often described as sweet and vaguely meaty or nutty, the flavour is SO subtle, its barely there - truly!
Natural Nori is always our first recommendation for those culinary virgins who are scared to try seaweed, so come on! Be brave, strap on those training wheels, and give it a whirl!
2. What is the texture like?
Natural Nori Leaf is even softer than Dulse Leaf, and being paper thin immediately melts in the mouth -- easily chewed, easily swallowed.
3. Is it radioactive??
No, this seaweed is not harvested anywhere near Japan (it's Canadian), and yes, it is rigorously tested to meet human consumption standards both pre-export, and again upon import by Australian Customs/ Quarantine.
4. Is it the same as Japanese Sushi sheets? what's the difference??
Our Leaf is small pieces (not suitable for sushi rolling), and the Flakes are milled to a finer size/texture, so it's personal preference really!
5. How can it be certified organic if it grows in the ocean, not on land?
The organic convention lists strict criteria for sea vegetable harvesting, including ensuring the grow/harvest areas are well away from industry or high populations, free from heavy metals or other contaminants like pesticide residue, and specify a carefully managed harvest for rapid regrowth and long-term sustainability.
6. Why the allergy warning?
This seaweed grows in the intertidal zone, supporting natural fish nurseries and other sealife so it is possible that trace amounts of shell particles (eg. periwinkles) could hitch a ride!
This has relevance to those with crustacean/shellfish allergies.
