Why You Aren’t Making the Gains You Should Be
Post-workout nutrition is essential for ensuring optimal recovery and muscle growth. What many serious lifters remain unclear on is exactly when to replenish their depleted muscles and which nutrients are best when aiming to maximize the tissue rebuilding process.
Post-workout supplementation delivered immediately after training has long been recognized by those at the cutting edge of bodybuilding research as a critical growth determinant. Such findings have prompted many companies to release post-workout products with one or several ingredients known for their anabolic properties. Reviews have been mixed.
The key to providing the best workout recovery formula is to ensure that the featured ingredients are of a sufficiently high potency and have the highest bioavailability (the rate at and degree to which they are absorbed).
Simply listing the ‘rock star’ ingredients on a flashy label and hoping the customer will recognize a few of the more common among them is no longer a strong enough selling point. Today’s savvy supplement shopper is more discerning than ever. They want quality and will independently research ingredients that will give them the best possible results.
In a post-workout formulation such consumers will be searching for one that contains Creatine, L-Carnitine, Beta-Alanine, Betaine, and Taurine. But not just any old combination of these mass building essentials will do. Today’s devoted lifter, having tried it all before, wants something unique; something which promises and delivers, superior results.
Bigger Than Ever
The recently released extreme post-workout formulation Cremagnavol – or CVOL – is the first of its kind to offer a unique combination of five grams of four different types of Creatine along with L-Carnitine, Beta-Alanine, Betaine and the largely unheralded but ultra-effective Taurine.
Not only does it provide a perfect ratio of these five workout recovery essentials to immediately commence the muscle building process, it does so in such a way that delivers the best results from the very first dose. Let’s take a closer look.
A Creatine Upgrade
True to its mission of providing the most bioavailable products, ALLMAX Nutrition has enlisted among the four types of creatine available in CVOL the groundbreaking Creatine MagnaPower. Countless studies have proven creatine to be the most effective of all legal muscle building agents. However, much of the creatine we ingest (whatever the form) is not fully absorbed; thus we are prevented from experiencing creatine’s full anabolic effects.
Whenever creatine is ingested, a lactamation reaction occurs where the amino creatine group is bound to its acid group thereby locking up the active creatine molecule and turning it into creatinine (a chemical waste product resulting from creatine breakdown). The high acid levels of regular creatine products combined with the acidity of the upper gastrointestinal tract exacerbate this effect.
By combining creatine and the mineral magnesium – a co-factor in more than 300 enzyme functions and essential for muscle protein synthesis – in one compound, thereby creating magnesium creatine chelate, the conversion of creatine into creatinine is countered.
Due to its strong alkali characteristics, magnesium lowers the acidity of creatine to ensure it remains fully active and ready to deliver its numerous muscle building benefits, of which include: faster and stronger muscle contractions to boost workout intensity, massive muscle pumps due to increased muscle water/glycogen levels, muscle mass increases, and enhanced strength.
Creatine is perhaps most famous for boosting ATP (Adenosine Tri Phosphate) re-synthesis to prolong physical effort. As well as ensuring ample energy to go the distance in the gym, the energy-storage molecule ATP also stimulates anabolic enzymes crucial for switching on specific muscle building genes and is also intimately involved in the muscle protein synthesis process.
But ATP synthesis requires the combined interaction of both creatine molecules and magnesium atoms. Using a creatine product without the perfect blend of magnesium – as contained in CVOL – will severely minimize creatine’s effectiveness. By significantly amplifying ATP synthesis, thus optimizing the contractile properties of muscle, both muscle growth and strength are increased. CVOL promises to do this with each serving.
L-Carnitine: More Than a Fat Burner
Known mostly for its role as potent fat burner, L-Carnitine has become the go-to supplement for those seeking to achieve a shredded appearance. By liberating fat from fat cells and transporting it to the mitochondria (cellular organelles responsible for generating energy), where it can be utilized as an energy source, L-Carnitine is the preferred supplemental fat metabolizer for hard training athletes.
As with creatine intake, the L-Carnitine we ingest must be highly bioavailable in order for it to exert its powerful effects which, among fat burning, include: increased production of the anabolic hormone IGF-1, free radical fighting (L-Carnitine is a well-researched antioxidant), muscle strengthening, and fatigue reduction. L-Carnitine L-Tartrate (LCLT) is the most bioavailable form of L-Carnitine on today’s market. CVOL contains a potent 1 gram of L-Carnitine L-Tartrate to ensure muscle tissues are repaired faster and that a leaner and more muscular physique can be built.
Taurine + Creatine: The Perfect Cell Volumizers
Similar to creatine, Taurine draws water in muscle cells and acts as a cell volumizer. This in turn draws additional nutrients for recovery and growth, increasing cell volume and enhancing muscle fullness.
And like Creatine, Taurine is not present in whey protein, whereas all other essential and nonessential amino acids are. Taurine plays a role in Nitric Oxide production. This mechanism may enhance the workout session and lead to a more rigorous workouts.
Taurine Promotes Lean Body Mass
A clinical trial in which overweight and obese men were given 3 grams of L-Taurine a day for 7 weeks experienced a significant reduction in serum fatty acid levels and overall reduction in bodyweight.
In a study conducted on the link between Taurine deficiency and obesity in mice, the researchers found that an increase in Taurine in the body led to a greater rate of energy usage and reduction in the build-up of fat. This study could lead to promising new research on Taurine’s ability to play a role in the prevention of obesity.
The Better Beta (Alanine)
No post-workout formula can be complete without one of today’s most effective peak performance and muscle recovery agents, Beta Alanine. Included at 800mg dosage level, Beta Alanine has proven its worth in research study after research study as the perfect workout companion. Intensive training leads to muscle fatigue and, ultimately, a failure to continue. This we all know.
However, many of us are unaware of the major role the buffering agent carnosine – a dipeptide of the amino acids beta-alanine and histidine – plays in neutralizing muscle fatigue and workout failure. The only way to successfully boost carnosine levels beyond their normal range and thus to prolong muscle endurance, delay fatigue and, in turn, build more muscle is to supplement with Beta Alanine.
Like Creatine MagnaPower, BetaSynth™ Beta Alanine is the best of its kind with the highest bioavailability. Indeed, BetaSynth’s powerful effects are further optimized when working synergistically with those of other performance products. Creatine, L-Carnitine L-Tartrate (LCLT) and Taurine, when stacked with Beta Alanine, combine to produce superior mass building results by optimizing recovery and significantly up-regulating muscle protein synthesis.
When these ingredients are precisely combined in the same formula, in their purest most potent form – as they are in CVOL – the results are nothing short of spectacular.
Muscle Building Has Never Been Easier
Great workouts can only be achieved by what is done in the hours following each workout session.
Try as we might, it is impossible to train to full capacity without the right raw materials on board. Similarly, we can forget about optimizing recovery and, in turn, translating our workout efforts into shredded mass without targeted supplementation.
In synergizing the perfect blend of specific highly bioavailable post-workout nutrients in precise amounts, ALLMAX Nutrition has created Cremagnavol (CVOL) to take post-workout recovery and muscle growth to new levels. With the combined interaction of Creatine MagnaPower, L-Carnitine L-Tartrate, Taurine, BetaSynth and Betaine, CVOL has become the latest super-supplement for the discerning muscle builder.
Moreover, CVOL can be stacked with the ultra-powerful pre workout formulation HVOL to further maximize muscle gains. So what are you waiting for? To get the biggest gains, you need products that will deliver.
