PRE WORKOUT – RAGE JUICE
PWO, Booster, charger... The pre-workout powder has many names! Today, there are roughly two types of PWO preparations; Stimulant-containing and stimulant-free. Rage Juice belongs to the first category, containing an effective dose of stimulants, i.e. substances that accelerate vital functions. Such a PWO product has a particularly stimulating effect, bringing energy and focus to a hard workout.
Rage juice is suitable for all trainers who need an extra boost for hard training. However, people who are hypersensitive to stimulants should not generally use such preparations. If you are not sure about your own sensitivity, try half the dose (10g) the first time and see how you react.
A good rule of thumb is to take PWO only when you really need it. This could be, for example, a situation where you feel a little tired and need a boost before training. Another potential way of use can only be before the hardest workouts, such as legs or back.
Continuous use also has its arguments. For example, among the ingredients of Rage Juice, beta-alanine is one whose full benefits can only be seen when a sufficient amount of it has accumulated in the body. However, the body also inevitably develops its own tolerance to stimulants. This is individual depending on the person, but a good rule of thumb is to take a 1-2 week break after at least 6-8 weeks of continuous use, or when you no longer feel the benefits of the product in training.
EAA – ANABOLIC SAUCE
EAA comes from the English words "essential amino acids". There are 20 amino acids in total, and 9 of them are essential. Essential in this context means that the human body is not capable of producing these amino acids by itself. Therefore, we need these amino acids externally, i.e. either from food or supplements. Amino acids are roughly the "building blocks" of proteins and they are needed e.g. for protein synthesis, i.e. muscle growth, but also for other functions such as energy production, brain neurotransmitters and liver function. When a person eats protein, the body breaks it down into different amino acids for the purposes of the body. Therefore, EAA is like a pre-digested protein, which means it is absorbed as quickly and easily as possible. The most essential benefit for the exerciser is the increase in protein synthesis, which leads to e.g. for better recovery and muscle growth.
EAA is suitable for all trainers who want to maximize muscle growth and recovery from hard training. For a person for whom, for example, all whey products upset the stomach, EAA may turn out to be a better option even after training. The problem with vegan diets is sometimes that you don't get all nine essential amino acids from plant protein sources. Thus, a vegan exerciser can also benefit from consuming EAA with meals. Compared to, for example, whey isolate, EAA also creates a shorter and lighter insulin spike due to its purity. In this case, EAA can also be the number one option for a strict diet, when you want to supplement your daily protein intake with minimal calories.
You can use EAA as often as you want, and you don't have to take a break from it.
EAA can be used in many ways, such as before, after or during training. The most popular way is to use EAA in an "intra" drink, i.e. during training in water to give fuel to the muscles and prevent the breakdown of muscle protein. For maximum benefit, we recommend also mixing in our Muscle Fuel carbohydrate preparation. When you want to train on an empty stomach, but still get the benefits of proteins, EAA, due to its lightness, is often best suited to supplement the body's protein intake and energy production.
BCAA contains only the following amino acids; Leucine, isoleucine and valine. These are already part of the nine essential amino acids contained in EAA. BCAA therefore contains only 3 of the essential amino acids! In order to get the full benefits from BCAA, the missing 6 amino acids should be obtained in sufficient quantities from food. There is also some evidence of a potential risk if the missing amino acids are not obtained when using BCAA, even a catabolic state is created as the body forcibly tears the missing amino acids from elsewhere. EAA is therefore a much better choice as a whole!
Although many manufacturers sell food supplements under the name "EAA", you unfortunately often find that the product contains, for example, only 8 essential amino acids instead of all nine. When talking about nutrition, protein sources are often roughly divided into two parts; For perfect and imperfect. Complete protein sources contain all 9 amino acids, while incomplete protein sources are missing one or more amino acids. Anabolic Sauce from PTVLABS contains all 9 amino acids, so you can be sure to get a complete and high-quality EAA preparation.
WHEY ISOLATE – GAIN SOUP
Whey is a protein source produced from milk. Whey isolate, on the other hand, is the most common type of "whey" today. Isolate is slightly longer processed than, for example, concentrate, and therefore usually has the best ratio of nutritional values, maximizing the amount of protein and minimizing fat and carbohydrate. Whey protein is one of the most researched supplements in the world. Contrary to what many people think, whey protein is one of the best and purest possible sources of protein, even in powder form. It also contains all essential amino acids. Whey contains a particularly high amount of leucine, which is the most "anabolic" amino acid of all. The benefits of quality protein hardly need to be explained to anyone, but the most important thing for a trainer is of course the promotion of muscle growth and recovery through protein synthesis.
Whey isolate is perfect for anyone who wants to supplement their daily protein intake, be it in the form of a recovery drink, meal or meal replacement. Due to its "purity", it is usually the best option, especially for weight loss, with the amount of fat and carbohydrates being minimized. A high-quality whey isolate, such as Gain Soup, is low in lactose and is therefore best suited also for people with a sensitive stomach or lactose intolerant.
Whey isolate can be used daily without a problem. Of course, it is not recommended to take the whole day's protein intake from whey isolate alone, because the body also needs important vitamins and nutrients from other sources. However, even two servings of whey are perfectly OK along with a balanced diet.
It is optimal to use Gain Soup, for example, as a supplement on the side of a meal or as a recovery drink.
CREATINE - POWER POWDER
Creatine is a substance found naturally in the body and humans produce about one gram of it per day. It occurs in food mainly in red meat and fish. Creatine helps muscles produce energy during high-intensity and heavy-load exercises, and especially its monohydrate form is one of the most researched and effective supplements, along with whey. The evidence for creatine as standard equipment for a gym trainer is undeniable. Numerous studies have shown how it can increase muscle mass, strength, and recovery and performance during exercise. In a nutshell, the benefit of creatine as a supplement is based on how it raises your body's creatine phosphate levels. Creatine phosphate, on the other hand, is like stored energy in muscle cells and helps the body produce more ATP, which is a high-energy molecule and helps the body perform better under stress, such as in muscle fitness or strength training. Few exercisers know that the benefits of creatine are not only focused on muscle growth and training, but also have numerous other health benefits, such as the prevention of neurological diseases and the improvement of cognitive abilities such as memory. Creatine packs fluid into the muscles, so a momentary rapid weight gain after starting creatine is to be expected.
Creatine is suitable for all basic healthy trainers who want to maximize their performance. In the past, there have been rumors that the use of creatine would not be safe. However, as previously stated, it is one of the most researched supplements in the whole world and no dangerous side effects have been observed in studies on healthy people when the dosage recommendations have been followed.
The old and universal dosage of creatine is 5 grams per day. Today, however, this has been refined, and even 10 grams per day can be a useful dose for people with a lot of muscle mass or a high level of activity, for example. On the other hand, benefits have been found even with doses of less than 5 grams. The optimal dosage is therefore individual. For example, research has shown that vegans have smaller creatine stores than usual, so using creatine as a supplement can be more beneficial than usual and grounds for a larger dose. However, a good rule of thumb for the "maximum" dose is approx. own weight/100, i.e. 6g per day for a 60kg person and 10g per day for a 100kg person. Since creatine packs fluid into the muscles, it is recommended to take care of sufficient water intake when using creatine.
When using creatine, we often talk about a "loading period". This refers to how to take a larger amount for the first 5-7 days so that the body's creatine levels rise to the optimal level as quickly as possible. Usually, a suitable dosage during the charging period is approx. 5 times the normal dosage. So, for example, 5g maintenance dose for 25g. During the loading period, the dose should be divided into parts throughout the day, because a large amount at once can cause stomach ache or nausea for some. The loading period is not mandatory, as the body's creatine levels rise to optimal before long even with a normal maintenance dose.
Creatine can be used daily, and there is no need to take breaks from it.
Daily with plenty of liquid. The most optimal time to take creatine has generally been found to be around training, either before or after. So creatine goes conveniently, for example, with either a PWO drink or a recovery drink. On rest days, it is also recommended to take a maintenance dose, but then the time does not matter much.
MUSCLE FUEL – CARBS
Muscles need fuel in the form of glycogen during hard training. Glycogen is obtained from carbohydrates. Muscle Fuel is a high-quality carbohydrate preparation that brings energy and better recovery to those who train hard. Carbohydrates during training also help keep blood sugar high, guaranteeing a smooth and energy-filled workout and, if necessary, coping well even with a long workout.
For anyone who trains hard and needs extra energy for training and recovery. It is also especially recommended for exercisers, who may start to feel weak in the middle of the exercise. This is usually due to dropped blood sugar and depleted energy levels, which Muscle Fuel helps with!
Whenever necessary, no separate break is needed. However, it is good to note that carbohydrates are energy and therefore contain calories. So a target dieter should take this into account in their daily total energy intake.
Before, after or during training, depending on your purpose. Carbohydrate consumed before training gives a boost to the upcoming training if it has been a long time since the last meal. Carbohydrate consumed during training helps to endure better and longer and, combined with Anabolic Sauce EAA, starts the recovery process already during training. Muscle Fuel is also suitable for consumption after training, for example with Gain Soup whey isolate in the form of a stronger recovery drink.
REAL MEAL – MEAL REPLACEMENT
Traditionally, there has been talk about meal replacements or "Mass gainers", including Real Meal
definitely reads more like the first one. Real Meal includes a high-quality selection
different nutrients, and not just crammed full of sugar and cheap protein like many
mass drinks. With Real Meal, you can replace a daily meal in a hurry, or even include it
to your normal diet as a permanent daily meal to facilitate calorie intake,
because the ingredients come from real food.
Real Meal is suitable for anyone who needs a quick and easy meal, whatever the situation!
In principle, there are no "restrictions" to the use of Real Meal, but in principle, of course, you should prefer unprocessed real food every day, and thus we recommend using Real Meal as a meal max. 1-2 times a day.
Mix a portion of Real Meal suitable for your goals with plenty of water and enjoy!
Here are some examples of dosage:
A 50g portion contains approx. 19g of protein, 20g of carbohydrates, 1.5g of fat and 176 calories.
A 75g serving contains 28.5g of protein, 30g of carbohydrates, 2.1g of fat and 267 calories.
A 100g serving contains 38g of protein, 40g of carbohydrates, 2.9g of fat and 352 calories.
STUPID PUMP – STIM FREE PWO
Like Rage Juice, Stupid Pump is also a pre-workout PWO booster. Stupid
However, Pump is a stimulant-free PWO preparation, i.e. it does not contain stimulants for vital functions
substances, such as caffeine, and thus does not "stimulate" or affect night sleep in the same way. Stupid Pump's ingredients have been selected to especially promote muscle blood circulation and
oxygen uptake capacity, guaranteeing a maximum pump and still Focus during training.
Stupid Pump is suitable for all trainers who need extra focus and a pump for training,
but don't necessarily want a stimulating effect from their booster. Some work out late at night, and for others not all stimulants are suitable. In this case, a stimulant-free booster, such as
Stupid Pump is definitely the best option!
Unlike the stimulant PWO preparations, there is nothing similar about using Stupid Pump
recommend that you should take a break from it because it does not contain stimulants for which the body
would be able to build tolerance. So you can use Stupid Pump without any worries
in training. Another good way to take advantage of Stupid Pump is when you like, for example
take a break from using Rage Juice and you still want to use the pump and focus-promoting ingredients for an effective workout!
KING AMINO – GLUTAMINE
Glutamine, or glutamine in Finnish, is the most abundant and most needed amino acid in our body. It is counted among the so-called conditionally essential amino acids, which means that our body can produce it itself, but needs it in large quantities. In addition to the fact that glutamine can enhance recovery and prevent muscle soreness from hard training, it has been proven
healing e.g. the body's immune system, brain function and food digestion.
Glutamine supplement is suitable for everyone from trainers to non-trainers, but especially hard ones
trainers should prefer it to ensure that the body's glutamine reserves are
at a high enough level to recover from training.
Glutamine can and should be taken every day.
You can mix Glutamine with water in the morning to promote digestion or during training as a PWO with Rage Juice or Stupid Pump, or as a recovery drink Gain Soup
into the mix. King Amino – L-Glutamine is tasteless, so you can easily mix it with anything.
HEALTHY STUFF – MULTIVITAMIN
Healthy Stuff is a really strong and versatile multivitamin to support daily
intake of vitamins and trace elements. There are many multivitamins on the market, but few actually contain reasonable amounts of the necessary ingredients, it is not
problem with Healthy Stuff! Even in a varied diet is born today
certain vitamin deficiencies, because with processing and power production, many food substances
has lost important vitamins and trace elements in its nutritional content. The concern is therefore special
great if the diet is not even very varied!
Healthy Stuff is suitable for anyone who wants to supplement and ensure that the daily intake of vitamins and trace elements is at an adequate level!
You can use Healthy Stuff every day all year round.
Take 2 capsules e.g. with breakfast!
FATTY PILLS – OMEGA-3
Fatty Pills is a really strong Omega-3 food supplement and contains significantly more of it
itself, i.e. EPA/DHA fatty acids, such as the Omega preparations available in basic markets. The body itself cannot produce Omega-3 fatty acids, so they must be obtained
from food or supplements. However, few of us eat enough fish, seafood or
chia seeds, which are good sources of Omega-3 fatty acids and thus it is one of the most recommended and most important dietary supplements for almost anyone. Omega-3 fatty acids have numerous proven health benefits, e.g. positive effects on heart health, cholesterol, eyesight, blood pressure, resistance, inflammation and
it has even been found in some studies to reduce the risk of depression!
Basically, for everyone who wants to take better care of their health and performance! High consumption of Omega-3 can, however, thin the blood and thus cause, for example, a greater risk of bleeding in some cases of surgery or illness, but in these cases doctors do recommend stopping the use of Omega-3 preparations in advance.
All year round and every day!
Enjoy 2-3 capsules a day with meals!
