100% Stable and Absorbable Phosphate Bonded Creatine
Engineered with a glycerol compound and bonded with phosphate, C.G.P. is able to accelerate absorption in the GI Track via a specialized pathway, thus eliminating all negative side effects such as cramps, bloating and nausea associated with most creatine products. C.G.P.'s superior phosphate bonded chemical structure remains completely intact and is directly assimilated into your bloodstream.
• Superior to Creatine Monohydrate
• Triggers Harder Muscle Contractions
• Amplifies Muscular Pumps
• Enhances Vascularity
• Increases ATP Production & Prolongs Endurance
• No Bloating, No Cramping, No Loading, No Sugar
Dedicated to manufacturing high quality nutritional supplements, backed by scientific research and formulated by a medical doctor, Metabolic Nutrition was the first to introduce Creatine-Glycerol-Phosphate to the marketplace. Acclaimed by physicians, athletes and consumers alike, C.G.P. has the distinction of delivering pure "Muscle Torque Energy" in a 100% stable and absorbable phosphate bonded creatine supplement.
Unlike creatine monohydrate which mostly converts into "Creatinine" (a toxic and unusable form of creatine) once mixed in liquid, C.G.P.'s chemical structure is strong enough to be mixed in any beverage without any degradation or conversion to creatinine.
Due to C.G.P.'s high absorption rate, a "loading phase" or "high carbohydrate" beverage is not needed, allowing C.G.P. to be used by individuals on low carbohydrate diets. C.G.P. serves as its own high energy, phosphate and electrolyte reservoir, contributing to the production of ATP, delaying fatigue, increasing strength, and magnifying endurance.
Not only do the ingredients in C.G.P. prolong physical stamina, but they also improve nutrient utilization and muscle recovery making it a critical supplement in any athlete's workout.

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.

EXTREME PRE-WORKOUT FORMULA
Two years ago, Blackstone Labs brought the supplement industry to its knees with the strongest, most potent preworkout formula of All-Time…Angel Dust! Angel Dust not only led the category, but reinvented how bodybuilders, athletes, and formulators would look at preworkout supplementation. For normal supplement companies a game changer only comes along once a decade, if they’re lucky. For Blackstone Labs, it’s a habit.
Which is exactly why after two years we’ve upped the ante on our own #1 preworkout supplement. Why did we do that? Because you’re either getting better or you’re getting worse. Maintaining is for losers.
It’s time for DUST! Hair on fire, eyes bugging out of your head, psycho intensity in just ONE scoop. Explosive strength and power, extreme energy, endurance, and fire hose sized veins and pumps. We took all of the feedback from Angel Dust, analyzed the most up-to-date research in the field, and catered toward what you, the athlete, needs to drink for optimal performance. There’s no fillers or junk, but simply the best tasting, highest quality ingredients available on the market. You can’t have the most potent products in the industry and go half-assed on the formula. That means none of the side-effects you hate like cramping, anxiety, or trips to the restroom 10 minutes into your workout. If you thought that the original Angel Dust with Hype was a sick combo, Dust V2 works even better with our Nitrious Oxide Booster
Assess your tolerance, ladies and gentleman. Dust is not for the faint of heart. We 100% guarantee once you start on Dust, you won’t “try out” another pre-workout ever again. Thought you couldn’t have better workouts than you did on the original formula? Try again my friends, Dust is about to blow your mind! Strength, endurance, power, and pumps – nothing else matters in a workout!
DUST V2| THE BEST PREWORKOUT INGREDIENTS
Beta Alanine reduces lactic acid build up while training allowing for more sets and reps throughout the course of a workout.
L-Taurine increases mental concentration and alertness and can improve your overall sense of well-being. Taurine has proven to regulate oxidative stress, protect against hardening of the arteries, lower blood pressure, support blood sugar levels, and support energy production.
L-Carnitine Tartrate plays a vital role in energy metabolism, specifically the transport of fatty acids into mitochondria where they can be burned for energy. Recent research suggests added support in the way of better performance, testosterone support, and fat metabolism.
Citrulline Malate 2:1 is primarily known to delay the onset of fatigue during high-intensity training and a precursor to nitric oxide allowing for better pumps while training. Citrulline Malate actively delays pH buildup in the muscles. By keeping muscle pH levels at a manageable level, Citrulline Malate aids in recovery and helps to alleviate soreness.
N-Acetly-L Tyrosine benefits include mood enhancement, counteracting negative side effects of stimulants by lowering anxiety, and promoting healthy blood pressure during times of stress.
Velvet Bean Extract is a neurotransmitter that promotes enjoyment and interest in life.
Betaine Anhydrous may boost your production of vital neurotransmitters and support SAM-e levels in order to promote a positive outlook. It may also support body composition changes due to its effect on energy pathways, and might also decrease homocysteine levels, a marker of oxidative stress.
Agmatine Sulfate has been shown to greatly increase hyperaemia and help extend pumps to long after your workout is complete.
L-Norvaline is a form of the branched chain amino acid known as Valine, and while showing some of the nutritional benefits of Valine, L-Norvaline has also been suggested to help support circulation and cardiovascular efficiency. During exercise, it is important to maximize blood flow so that nutrient-rich blood flows to the active muscle tissues. When there isn’t enough blood flow to specific areas, you will feel it in the form of fatigue and muscle failure.
Di-Caffeine Malate generates the same energy and focus as caffeine, but with less stress on the stomach.
Caffeine Anhydrous triggers a range of performance-specific benefits including improved focus, elevated alertness, faster reaction time, reduced fatigue, increased endurance and elevated mood.
Hordenine supports mental and physical energy and a positive mood.
N-Methyl Tyramine supports increases in energy levels, mental focus, and delivers jitter-free energy. It also helps to maintain an improved blood flow to muscles supporting muscle growth and supports the reduction of post workout fatigue. Another benefit is better fat loss as part of a healthy lifestyle as it mobilizes fat by releasing glucose from energy store.
Arcofuel improves athletic performance, energy, and mood.
Eduramax (Stearoyl Vaillalaminde 98%) is an electrolyte which enhances endurance and recovery.
