100% Micellar Casein
DYMATIZE ELITE CASEIN provides 24 grams of slow-digesting casein protein per serving.
Dymatize 100% Casein is specifically designed to digest more slowly in your body than other rapid release protein sources, such as whey. This slow digestion is a result of the natural pH sensitivity of casein protein in the digestive tract. Because of the natural thickening effect of Dymatize 100% Casein in the low pH environment of the stomach, a prolonged and steady release of protein is obtained. In fact, the resulting digestion can take more than twice as long as other forms of protein. This delayed digestion is often desirable, especially at bedtime or other periods when your body can go for an extended period without food.
Dymatize Casein is made from only protein sources with a PDCAAS (protein digestibility corrected amino acid score) of 1.0 (perfect score) or higher. Dymatize 100% Casein provides 24 grams of casein-derived protein per serving, including 10 grams of BCAAs, glutamine and precursors. In addition, Dymatize 100% Casein provides 50% of the RDA of Calcium.
Each serving is delicious and satisfying. Because of the naturally hydroscopic nature of casein proteins, Dymatize 100% Casein is noticeably thicker and smoother than other non-casein based products.
Mix one heaped scoop with 10-12 ounces of your favourite beverage. For optimum results drink in the evening before bed, in place of small meals, or any other time when steady amino acid release is desired.

Supports women's reproductive health
Helps regulate the menstrual cycle and relieve menstrual symptoms such as period pain, mood swings, bloating, sugar cravings and heavy bleeding.
Features and benefits:
Formulated according the principles of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to support women’s reproductive health, regulate the menstrual cycle, relieve period pain (dysmenorrhoea) and aid the management of irregular, heavy or prolonged periods
Provides symptomatic relief from the physical and emotional symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), including fatigue, breast tenderness, abdominal cramping, fluid retention, bloating, headaches, mild anxiety, irritability, tension, mood swings and cravings for sweets
May help reduce the frequency of migraines and help relieve their symptoms
Women’s Balance tablets also aid in the management of alopecia (hair loss), especially when taken with our Hair Tonic and Hair, Skin & Nails formulas
For additional premenstrual support, Women’s Balance may be combined with Fusion® Vitex tablets, which help reduce the frequency and severity of premenstrual symptoms.
To aid the management of flooding or heavy periods, we recommend combining Women’s Balance with Fusion® Tienchi Ginseng, which has traditionally been used to reduce heavy menstrual bleeding and restore the healthy flow of Blood and Qi
How it works:
Traditional Chinese herbalists regard the physiological changes that occur in a woman’s body each month as being governed by the functioning of the Kidney organ-meridian system (which encompasses the reproductive system as well as the kidneys themselves) and the healthy circulation of Blood and Qi (life force) throughout the body.
According to this philosophy, women become predisposed to menstrual irregularities, premenstrual symptoms, period pain and/or heavy menstrual blood loss when the flow of Blood or Qi is disrupted, each woman experiences different symptoms according to the specific nature of the imbalances affecting her.
For example, many women who experience emotional symptoms such as mood swings or irritability, or physical symptoms such as breast tenderness are affected by Liver Qi stagnation. This type of imbalance commonly results from leading a sedentary or stressful lifestyle, having a poor diet, or experiencing extreme emotions (such as anger, frustration or mild anxiety). It causes the accumulation of Blood in the abdominal region and uterus, and may result in period pain and feelings of pelvic congestion, amongst other symptoms.
Other women may be affected by a deficiency of Kidney Yin and/or Spleen energy (perhaps due to overwork, stress or a poor diet), and consequently may experience symptoms such as fluid retention, bloating and lower back pain.
Fusion® Women’s Balance tablets contain a synergistic blend of herbs carefully combined to restore balance to the menstrual cycle. It includes Peony and Dong Quai, traditionally used to regulate menstruation and relieve congested Blood and constrained Qi, Bupleurum and Cyperus to disperse Liver Qi, and Rehmannia to nourish the Yin.

50 G QUALITY PROTEIN PER SERVING!
“6-CARB” CARBOHYDRATE BLEND WITH DIFFERENT CARBS INCLUDING OAT FLOUR, PALATINOSE™ & WAXY MAIZE STARCH!
"JUMBO" EXTRA INGREDIENT MATRIX!
5 TYPES OF CREATINES!
ESPECIALLY FOR HARDGAINERS!
It’s been shown that people tend to overestimate their actual nutrient consumption when trying to gain muscle and brawn. In other words, they eat less than they think and they need for steady and significant progress! Everybody seeks the magic bullet while ignoring the fact that nothing is more powerful than the consistent consumption of proper amount of total calories, energizing carbs and muscle building protein. Couple this with the fact that many athletes don’t invest time in the proven method of keeping a food log and the best practical solution left for most may be to rely on the daily use of a JUMBO type shake that can really help to take in enough nutrients to progress. With 50 grams of one of the highest quality protein per serving, a large dose of energy dense 6-carb matrix, the nutritional side of the equation is significantly boosted for you by JUMBO!
JUMBO is designed with whey protein. Dietary proteins are the source of nitrogen and indispensable amino acids, which the body requires for tissue growth and maintenance. Therefore, JUMBO's protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.* Whey protein from milk is a so-called complete protein, because it provides the body with all necessary amino acids, including the 9 amino acids (i.e. Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Valine) that are considered essential for life, because the body cannot synthesize them. Determination of the nutritional efficiency of protein in the diet is in most cases based on estimating the extent to which dietary protein nitrogen is absorbed and retained by the body and is able to balance daily nitrogen losses.
Net Protein Utilisation (NPU) is the percentage of ingested nitrogen that is retained in the body, and the Biological Value (BV) gives the percentage of absorbed nitrogen that is retained. Biological Value is the product of NPU and digestibility. Whey protein has good digestibility and amino acid composition, thus it’s Biological Value is great compared to other dietary protein sources like meat, fish, eggs or soy. JUMBO features our “6-CARB” carbohydrate blend that includes oat flour, Palatinose™ and native waxy maize food starch. The "JUMBO" extra ingredient matrix provides a good dose of our proprietary “CREA-BOMB multi-component creatine matrix”! At least a 3 g daily dose of Creatine is scientifically proven to increase performance in successive burst of short-term, high intensity exercise like weight training and interval cardio.* We also added extra amino acids on top of the amounts coming from protein, including essential ones.
In the “Support complex” you’ll find Magnesium in a dose that contributes to normal protein synthesis, to a reduction of tiredness and fatigue, to normal functioning of the nervous system (neurotransmission and muscle contraction including heart muscle), to normal energy-yielding metabolism, to electrolyte balance, to the maintenance of normal bones and teeth, and has a role in the process of cell division.* Finally, we also added BioPerine®, a patented black pepper extract.
*These statements have been scientifically proven by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and authorized by the European Commission (EC).

Black Pepper Whole
Black pepper is added to most savoury dishes today and is an integral part of Chai and turmeric tea. In earlier times black pepper was so valuable it was used as currency.
Black pepper is recognized for improving digestions and promoting gut health by helping to prevent the formation of intestinal gas. It also promotes sweating and has diuretic properties as well as having antioxidant and antibacterial properties.
We recommend that you always use black pepper with turmeric as is aids in the release of curcumin.

Zinc, Magnesium, Selenium and Taurine (ZMST) are essential nutrients for individuals. Because of our modern lifestyles, these nutrients are often deficient in the Western Diet and have been depleted from our soils and not found in adequate levels in our foods. The deficiency of these nutrients can lead to a host of disorders that include cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, sleep disorders, mental health problems and even musculoskeletal problems like osteoporosis and muscle aches and pains.
Ingredients per capsule
Magnesium Citrate (100mg elemental Magnesium)
Zinc gluconate (2.5mg elemental Zinc)
Organic Selenium yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae (6.25mcg elemental selenium)
How many: Take one to three capsules,
How often: one to three times per day.
Your rate absorption is proportional to your body magnesium levels.
If your body levels are low then absorption is enhanced.
If your body levels are fine or high then absorption slows down.
If you take more than you need the magnesium drags water into your intestine and creates loose watery stools or diarrhoea.
If you suspect deficiency you can take up to 3 ZMST capsules 3 times daily. As your levels increase your absorption slows down and you get watery loose stools. If or when this happens reduce your dose to 2 and then 1 capsule 3 times daily.
Long term taking 1 to 3 capsules of ZMST daily will maintain healthy magnesium levels.
Magnesium (Mg2+) is the second most abundant intracellular mineral, after potassium, and is the fourth most abundant cation in the human body. This essential mineral is needed for a broad variety of physiological and biochemical functions.
What does a Magnesium Deficiency look like?
HOW DOES MAGNESIUM WORK?
As a co-factor in more than 300 enzymatic reactions, which often depend on energy production (yes ATP), Mg2+ is involved in many biochemical pathways of key importance, including the breakdown of macronutrients, oxidative phosphorylation, DNA and protein synthesis, neuro-muscular excitability, and regulation of parathyroid hormone secretion.
So basically almost every time you break something down to raw materials and building blocks or build something new in your body there is a requirement for magnesium to allow that to happen.
The metal zinc is nowadays well known to be essential for a well-operating human body. However, knowledge about zinc homeostasis, zinc deficiency, and related diseases is comparatively new.
What Zinc does for us
As mentioned earlier with magnesium, the zinc and magnesium enzymes are needed almost every time you break something down to raw materials and building blocks or build something new in your body. It is a structural component in proteins and it is involved in numerous cellular functions include, but are not limited to, cell proliferation and differentiation, RNA and DNA synthesis, stabilization of cell structures/membrane, as well as redox regulation, and apoptosis.
Many chronic diseases have been associated with zinc deficiency, such as: type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, and depression. There are also links between zinc deficiency and acute and chronic several infectious diseases such as shigellosis, acute cutaneous leishmaniosis, malaria, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), tuberculosis, measles, and pneumonia.
The roles of Zinc in the body
There are numerous roles for zinc in the human body. Zinc cannot be stored and has to be taken up via food daily to guarantee sufficient supply. A large number of especially inflammatory diseases, but also aging, pregnancy, lactation, and vegetarian or vegan lifestyles are associated with zinc deficiency. Also, like with most minerals, a crappy diet will also lead to a zinc deficiency. Zinc is especially important during periods of rapid growth, both pre and postnatally, and for tissues with rapid cellular differentiation and turnover, such as the immune system and the gastrointestinal tract. Critical functions that are affected by zinc nurture include pregnancy outcome, physical growth, susceptibility to infection, and neurobehavioral development.
Zinc and immunity
Zinc is vital for optimal immunity and even a mild zinc deficiency impairs immunity, delays wound healing, allows for ongoing inflammation and increases oxidative stress. Zinc is essential for the Th 1 immune system that is responsible for our first line of defence against infections and cancer etc. to be able to function, Zinc is needed so the immune cells actually know there is an infection and that they are required to attack. This results in a host of infections that can hang around longer than they are wanted!
The effects of zinc in the body
Essential trace element used by over 300 enzymes in the body
The adult body only contains 2 to 3 grams of zinc
Zinc is found in ALL parts of the body
90% of body zinc is found in muscle and bones
High concentrations found in semen and prostate
Aids healthy hair, skin and nails
Vital for cell division such as pregnancy and normal growth and development
Important for fertility, sperm production, prostate health and healthy testosterone levels
Zinc is essential to balance female hormones and prevent premenstrual problems
Essential component for the immune system
Reduces oxidative stress by making antioxidants
Improves insulin sensitivity
Magnesium and zinc need selenium to function properly.
Selenium deficiency is often the rate limiting factor for zinc and magnesium function. Meaning if selenium is deficient the zinc and magnesium supplements can’t work properly. Selenium belongs to one of the trace elements essential for human health and life. In the body, selenium is involved in numerous processes
Muscle and bone development
The biological functions of selenium result from the occurrence of the selenocysteine amino acid in proteins. The research has revealed that about a hundred selenoproteins can be found in our organisms. The most important of them are the antioxidant enzymes – glutathione peroxidase and thioredoxin reductase, as well as selenoprotein P, responsible for the storage and transport of selenium.
How do we normally consume Selenium?
Selenium levels of the soil determines the concentrations in plant foods. Brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, especially young barley seedlings, green vegetables, shiitake mushrooms, and button mushrooms are excellent organic sources of selenium in regions with adequate selenium content in the soil.
Selenium yeast is an excellent source as well. Where yeast acts like a sponge and sucks up the selenium in the water. The yeast is then killed and not acting like a live yeast that can colonise and grow inside you but acts as a source of nutrients.
Animals that consume selenium containing plant-based foods, especially, fish, seafood, beef, and poultry are good sources of selenium from areas with adequate supply.
Remember, you only get adequate selenium in your diet of the soil is rich in selenium and around a billion people are deficient in the world.
Selenium deficiency occurs when there is inadequate dietary intake of selenium, typically due to a scarcity of selenium sources in a given region. The American Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) daily minimum requirement of selenium for optimal biological functioning is 70 and 55 micrograms (mcg) per day for men and women, respectively, per April 2000 recommendations. However, this level is considered low based on other studies, and some literature sets the minimum requirement at 90 mcg daily per adult.
The Symptoms of Selenium Deficiency
Symptoms of severe selenium deficiency are primarily related to heart muscles and joints. Moderate deficiency leads to increase in infertility in men, prostate cancer, and neurological diseases. Manifestations of rheumatoid arthritis, shortened fingers and toes or growth disorders in regions endemic to shortages in selenium in the soil should raise suspicion regarding selenium deficiency, especially in children 5 to 13 years of age. It is the constellation of symptoms that will, unfortunately, point to making the diagnosis, as there is not a specific finding that will allow the clinician to hone in on the fact that the patient is selenium deficient.
Taurine is one of the most abundant free amino acids in mammals. It is considered a basic regulator of cell homeostasis controlling calcium and magnesium channels helping to reduce calcium influx and magnesium release from cells and subsequent excretion. Taurine increases intracellular magnesium.
The beneficial effects of taurine are attributed to osmoregulation (regulation of cell volume), anti-oxidant effects, anti-inflammatory, calcium modulation, cell membrane stabilization and neuromodulation (brain health) and plays an important role in the conjugation of bile acid.
Taurine holds magnesium in cells
Calcium rushes into cells to activate them or induce an action like a thought or a muscle contraction. Magnesium is released from the cell to switch this off. Once released from cell the magnesium can be excreted and that is one mechanism behind magnesium depletion and the end result is too many on switches (calcium influx) and not enough off switches intracellular magnesium to be released.
Taurine works with ion channels to hold magnesium in cells and preventing the calcium influx and subsequent magnesium release and loss.
The ZMST take home message
ZMST is an essential supplement for optimal health that most individuals will benefit from. It contains the proper ratios of key nutrients and proper therapeutic dosages of magnesium so many people are deficient in. It contains magnesium in the best form (citrate) and in divided dosages for optimal absorption. ATP Science’ ZMST can be taken long term because the dosage is optimised to reduce or eliminate any gut problems associated with some magnesium supplements.
