  • Ultimate Nutrition Testostro Grow HP

    TESTOSTERONE POTENTIATOR

     
    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.

  • Fusion Organic Iron Advanced

    Tummy-friendly iron supplement

     
    A highly bioavailable source of organic iron, with cofactors to aid its absorption and utilisation.

     

    Features and benefits

     
    Formulated with iron glycinate, a highly bioavailable and readily absorbed form of organic iron that’s gentle on the stomach.
    Contains nutritional cofactors that enhance iron absorption and utilisation, plus vitamin B12 to help maintain normal blood.
    Helps maintain healthy iron stores and may aid in the management of dietary iron deficiency.
    Supports healthy red blood cell formation and energy production.
    May be beneficial for people prone to dietary iron deficiency, including women who experience heavy periods, older people, athletes, and people recovering from minor infections.
    Suitable for use during pregnancy and breast-feeding.
    Vegan formula.
     

    How it works

     
    Iron is involved in numerous physiological processes.
     
    Most importantly, it supports healthy red blood cell formation, enables the haemoglobin in red blood cells to transport oxygen around the body so it can be used in the production of cellular energy (in the form of adenosine triphospate, ATP), and also allows oxygen to be stored in muscle so that it’s available to those tissues during periods of intense or prolonged muscle activity.
     
    However, many people do not consume adequate amounts of iron in their diets, or are at increased risk of dietary iron deficiency due to factors such as blood loss or digestive difficulties. Those most at risk include vegans, vegetarians, older people, and people undergoing physical changes in which the volume of blood expands (as occurs during pregnancy and teenage growth spurts, for example).
     
    Fusion® Iron Advanced has been carefully formulated to optimise absorption, and unlike some iron supplements, does not cause digestive difficulties. It contains iron glycinate, a highly bioavailable form of organic iron that’s gentle on the stomach.
     
    Nutritional cofactors that further enhance the absorption and utilisation of iron are also present in this formula, including vitamin B12 to assist in maintaining normal blood, vitamin C to enhance iron absorption, and folic acid and other B group vitamins involved in the production of red blood cells and cellular energy.

    AMINO SWITCH .  faq’s

     
    IS AMINO SWITCH™ A COMPLETE PROTEIN?
     
    Yes and no. AMINO SWITCH™ contains all the essential amino acids found in a complete protein source. However, it contains fewer calories. AMINO SWITCH™ can be used as a low-calorie alternative to protein shakes or protein foods. WHAT IS NNU & NPU?NNU (Net Nitrogen Utilization) or NPU (Net Protein Utilization) is the same thing. Nitrogen is used interchangeably with protein. NNU or NPU is the ratio of amino acids converted to human proteins (muscle, enzymes, hormones etc) to the amount of amino acids supplied. In other words, how much protein (amino acids) is consumed verse what is excreted or wasted. AMINO SWITCH™ is designed using the MAP (Master Amino Acid Profile) which provides the highest possible NNU of 99% absorption.
     
    WHY IS THE MASTER AMINO ACID PROFILE SO IMPORTANT?
     
    It took researchers more than 30 years to provide us with an understanding of the Perfect Human Ratio (PHR) of Essential Amino Acids. Now with this information we can maximise the benefits of muscle building and recovery without excess amounts of calories, stress on our body, acidity or wasted protein. For example, many athletes trying to build muscle will consume a minimum of 2g of protein per kg of body weight per day. For a 100kg male this is 1.4kg of protein a week (7 days). This same athlete will not put on 1.4kg of muscle a week because much of the protein is wasted or converted to energy. AMINO SWITCH™ would require a fraction of this amount to provide the same results because it is 99% utilized with only 1% wastage. This gives you much better bang for your buck.
     
    CAN I REPLACE PROTEIN WITH AMINO SWITCH™?
     
    Yes, you can. One (1) serve of AMINO SWITCH™ is equivalent to 35g of Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) or 60g of meat, fish or poultry. Therefore one (1) serve can replace one protein shake or meal for most people.
     
    CAN I USE AMINO SWITCH™ DURING TRAINING INSTEAD OF A STRAIGHT BCAA SUPPLEMENT?
     
    Absolutely. AMINO SWITCH™ contains all three (3) BCAA’s plus the additional Essential Amino Acids (EAA’s) required to help remodel muscle and boost your metabolism.
     
    HOW WILL AMINO SWITCH™ HELP ME BURN FAT?
     
    If you are on a calorie restricted (hypocaloric) diet it is important to provide your body with enough essential amino acids from protein to prevent muscle breakdown and loss. However, not too much that the calories from the protein prevent you burning fat. AMINO SWITCH™ has a significantly higher bioavailability and NNU than normal protein, but with much fewer calories (0.2 calories).
     
    L-TYROSINE IS NOT AN ESSENTIAL AMINO ACID. WHY HAS IT BEEN ADDED TO AMINO SWITCH™?
     
    L-Tyrosine is involved in the production of 90% of your neurotransmitters, including adrenalin and dopamine. Adrenaline is responsible for increasing alertness and energy which may help you to train longer and harder. Dopamine is involved in promoting thoughts of motivation and suppressing thoughts of fatigue, allowing for a lowered perceived effort. In other words, AMINO SWITCH™ may help you push harder for longer and feel less fatigued during exercise.
     
    WHY HAVE YOU ADDED SCHISANDRA TO AMINO SWITCH™?
     
    Schisandra Chinensis is a key ingredient in AMINO SWITCH™. It’s a berry that has been used as an adaptogen for centuries to promote vitality, energy, libido, endurance and reduce fatigue. Adaptogens by nature allow our bodies to respond more positively to stress and adapt faster. Therefore, if you stress your body by exercising the adaptive response is to build muscle, increase strength, enhance endurance and burn fat. This process is sped up with the supplementation of Schisandra. Lowering cortisol is another benefit of Schisandra which may help to reduce muscle breakdown and allow for greater recovery. Also, Schisandra seems to improve your bodies response to caffeine, therefore helping your pre-workout or fat burner maintain its benefit. We are excited to be able to source one of the most highly concentrated 10:1 extracts to help support your goals.
     
    WHY HAVE YOU ADDED ELECTROLYTES AND CO-FACTORS TO AMINO SWITCH™?
     
    It is critically important for peak performance that you maintain hydration and correct electrolyte balance. In fact, a 2% drop in water may result in a 20% drop in performance. At SWITCH NUTRITION™ we set out to create the perfect amino supplement. To achieve this, we added a natural balance of highly absorbable electrolytes to maintain hydration of your cells. We also added Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin C to help support amino acid metabolism and utilisation.
     
    HOW WILL AMINO SWITCH ASSIST WITH KETOSIS?
     
    When on a ketogenic diet you need to be careful of how much protein you consume as it can be converted to glucose and bump you out of ketosis. However, because Amino Switch is 99% utilised there is only 1% (0.2 calories) available to be used as energy. This means AMINO SWITCH™ provides all the muscle repairing benefits of protein without the additional calories that can be converted to glucose. If there isn’t additional glucose from protein, then you are more likely to stay in ketosis while using AMINO SWITCH™.
     
    IS AMINO SWITCH GLUTEN, LACTOSE, SOY FREE AND VEGAN FRIENDLY?
     
    Yes. One of the big reasons we developed AMINO SWITCH™ was to provide people with a NON-DAIRY, gluten and lactose free protein option that tastes amazing, is affordable and obtains results.  Plus... we haven’t harmed any animals in the production of KETO SWITCH™.
     
    IS AMINO SWITCH™ CALORIE FREE?
     
    Not quite but its damn close. Due to the unique Master Amino Acid Profile, 99% of the amino acids are used by your body to create human protein. That leaves only 1% that can be used for energy. Generally, 5g of EAA’s @ 4 calories per gram is 20 calories but in AMINO SWITCH™ only 1% can be used for energy so it contains only 0.2 calories per serve.
     
    HOW MUCH OF EACH INGREDIENT IS IN AMINO SWITCH™?
     
    AMINO SWITCH™ like ALL other SWITCH NUTRITION™ products is 100% open label. This means all active ingredients are clearly illustrated on the tub or sachet. No hidden fillers and no proprietary blends. Just 100% quality.
     
    IS AMINO SWITCH™ A HIGH-QUALITY PRODUCT?
     
    AMINO SWITCH™ is formulated based on the leading research available and manufactured in a HACCP and GMP certified facility. In addition to this we independently LAB TEST each batch for purity and potency. This process guarantees the highest quality product and provides the best results.
     
    CAN I USE ANOTHER PROTEIN SUPPLEMENT IN ADDITION TO AMINO SWITCH™?
     
    Absolutely. Due to the rapid absorption and high bioavailability of AMINO SWITCH™ we recommend using it before and after exercise. However, this doesn’t mean you should avoid other protein supplements or foods. In fact, you can have an additional protein shake after AMINO SWITCH™ post workout and it will be utilised more efficiently. AMINO SWITCH™ will turn on protein synthesis ahead of the protein shake consumption. Think of AMINO SWITCH™ as the key that starts your muscle recovery engine.
     
    CAN I USE ANYTHING ELSE WITH AMINO SWITCH™ FOR BETTER RESULTS?
     
    Absolutely. If you are attempting a ketogenic diet or trying to burn more fat we suggest using KETO SWITCH™. KETO SWITCH™ is an exogenous (external) BHB ketone supplement that helps you get into or stay in ketosis. BHB (Beta Hydroxybutyrate) has been shown to enhance cognitive function, lower inflammation, improve performance and much more. THERMAL SWITCH™ or POWER SWITCH™ are great combined with AMINO SWITCH™ pre-workout to increase energy, boost performance, enhance strength, reduce fatigue and support muscle recovery while burning fat.
     
    ADRENAL SWITCH™ is the perfect post workout partner for AMINO SWITCH™. With added L-Leucine, L-Glycine, Vitamins, Minerals and Herbs that will help SWITCH ON the recovery process ADRENAL SWITCH™ was made to stack with Amino Switch.
