ANIMAL – ANIMAL M-STAK (21 PACKS)
For many of us, the difficulty wasn’t the initial response to weightlifting, that helped us rapidly change our bodies, and our lifestyles along with it. The challenge came, when our growth stagnated. And our gains plateaued. For many, that turning point moment is where there training lives came to an unceremonious end. But not for us. For those few who were too in love with the iron to ever just walk away, we dedicated ourselves in earnest to breaking through that plateau. It was this urge that inspired the brothers at Animal to formulate the highly anabolic M-Stak.
Animal M-Stak is the perfect hardgainer’s pack. Others will say it’s a plateau buster in a can. Whatever you call it, Animal M-Stak flat out works, thanks to its unique nutrient-partitioning effects and its ability to help promote anabolism via protein synthesis, nitrogen retention, while reducing muscle wasting (catabolism).
Animal M-Stak’s potency starts with its unique Natural Flavone/Sterone Complex. These natural flavones and sterones act as nutrient-partitioning agents to help shuttle needed calories specifically to lean mass instead of toward body fat deposition. Remember, it’s not just about eating but actually drawing the nutrients to the muscles where you want them, in an efficient manner that will ultimately build new size.
WHAT’S IN IT?
NATURAL FLAVONE/STERONE COMPLEX – 750MG
Cyanotis Vaga Extract (β-Ecdysterone) (whole plant): Increases Protein synthesis and maintenance of an anabolic state, and enhancement of lean muscle mass, while subsequently decreasing adipose (fat) tissue.
5-Methyl-7-Methoxyisoflavone: is a naturally-derived non-hormonal anabolic compound known as a flavone. It is a powerful anabolic chemical compound which can increase muscle mass, enhance strength, decrease cortisol levels and improve overall recovery from exercise.
Ajuga Turkestanica Extract (turkesterone, whole plant): Turkesterone not only builds muscle, but also maintains it in the long term. Turkesterone works particularly well after resistance training, speeding up muscle tissue repair. It has also shown promise in stimulating protein biosynthesis.
Phytosterols (providing beta sitosterol): Helps reduce cholesterol levels by limiting the amount of cholesterol that is able to enter the body. It can also bind to the prostate to help reduce swelling (inflammation)
ANTI-CATABOLIC AMINO COMPLEX – 3000MG
L-Leucine: Leucine an essential amino acid. Of all the Branched Chain Amino Acids Leucine is the most abundant and most important. Research has shown that Leucine’s major role is as a protein synthesis regulator and if you add Leucine to a high protein meal you can increase protein synthesis by up to 40%. L-Leucine can be used in conjunction with meals that are already high in protein to help accelerate the recovery of muscles. Many athletes add extra Leucine to their diet to help reduce the breakdown of muscles during training and to reduce the soreness of muscles after training.
L-Isoleucine: Isolecuine is essential for a number of fundamental processes in the body and may enhance insulin sensitivity in the body thereby increasing the efficacy of essential and non-essential amino acid absorption.
L-Valine: Valine promotes optimal nitrogen balance in the body which supports protein synthesis (Protein absorption) and muscle hypertrophy (muscle gain). Valine is also an incredibly efficient source of energy for your muscle tissue and this is why it’s considered one of the best workout support supplements to take during exercise.
L-Taurine: L-Taurine assists the transport of electrolytes into the muscle cell, which must occur for hydration to take place. It may also assist muscular uptake of amino acids and creatine, making it a particularly valuable performance booster.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC): Acetyl L-Carnitine promotes the transportation of free fatty acids into the mitochondria (core of the cells), where they are burned off as energy. Acetyl L-Carnitine also assists muscle recovery after strenuous exercise and promotes optimal heart and brain function.
Leucine Ethyl Ester HCI: Because of the rapid breakdown of some amino acids in the intestine, its beneficial effects can be limited. Ethyl ester amino acids have a much better absorption rate and a longer half-life in the body than regular free from amino acids because it is slightly more lipophilic.
ANABOLIC ADAPTOGEN COMPLEX – 1000MG
Panax Ginseng (root): Ginseng’s ability to reduce cellular and muscle damage can reduce creatine kinase leakage during exercise and increase ATP output.
Kudzu (isoflavones) (root): Helps improve muscular endurance and decrease mental fatigue. Kudzu can also help metabolise bodyfat during exercises.
Eleutherococcus Senticosus (root): Used to reduce feelings of stress, improve athletic performance, and reduce high blood pressure. It has also been used to ease cold-like symptoms.
INSULIN POTENTIATING COMPLEX – 500MG
Fenugreek (4-Hydroxyisoleucine) (seed): Fenugreek increases testosterone levels, but it also inhibits the conversion from testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This happens as fenugreek blocks the 5-alpha reductase enzyme, which converts testosterone into DHT. DHT is known to cause hair loss in men. Fenugreek also helps improve how the body uses sugar and increases the amount of insulin released.
Banaba Leaf Extract (corosolic acid): Rich in corosolic acid (a substance found to possess blood-sugar-lowering, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties), banaba also contains ellagitannins, a class of compounds with antioxidant effects.
Cinnamon Bark Extract: A highly active set of compounds found in cinnamon, known as methylhydroxychalcone polymers (MHCPs), act to enhance insulin sensitivity. Cinnamon bark is also used for aiding in gastrointestinal (GI) distress, diarrhea, and gas. It is also used for stimulating appetite.
Na-R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (Na-R–ALA):Alpha-lipoic acid is a vitamin-like chemical called an antioxidant.It lowers blood sugar levels, reduces inflammation, slows skin aging, and improves nerve function.
M FACTOR COMPLEX – 500MG
Ginger Root (gingerols, shogaols): Ginger root have been shown to help inhibit pro-inflammatory metabolites, which leads to a strong and prolonged anti-inflammatory effect. A reduction in inflammation is critical for maintaining pain free joints and for protection against degenerative joint issues often related to years of heavy lifting.
Grapefruit (6, 7-Dihydroxybergamottin) (fruit): Grapfruit helps burn fat by helping lower insulin in the body. This slightly decreased insulin level stops the body from storing as much sugar and fat. A high insulin level tells your body its time to eat, reducing this will aid in fat loss.
Citrus Bioflavonoids (peel): The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits of citrus bioflavonoids have been shown to support metabolic, circulatory, cognitive and joint health. Citrus bioflavonoids have a synergistic function with vitamin C for enhanced immune support, and have also been shown to increase the absorption of vitamin C.
ENERGY COMPLEX – 500MG
Caffeine: Has a thermogenic effect and suppresses appetite, thanks to increased production of adrenaline and noradrenaline. It has been proven to increase the formation of such neurotransmitters in the central nervous system as dopamine, acetylcholine or even serotonin, which exerts a stimulating effect and increases cognitive function. The overall effect of caffeine on the body allows you to maintain the effectiveness of training and a positive mood, despite the caloric deficit.
Theobromine: Theobromine is primarily used as a pre-workout alternative to caffeine. Theobromine is believed to have stimulating properties that bodybuilders can feel, similar to caffeine, resulting in improved focus, energy, motivation, and ability to concentrate during exercise.
Kola Nut (seed): Kola nut powder and extract may help digestion. They are thought to promote the production of gastric acid, which increases digestive enzyme effectiveness in the stomach. Increase in circulation: The caffeine and theobromine in the kola nut may speed up the heart rate, which increases circulation
Take one pak every day for 21 consecutive days. On training days, take pak 45 minutes prior to exercise. On non-training days, take pak in the morning or early afternoon. Cycle product for maxium results: three weeks on and one week off. Repeat as needed.
The entire Energy Complex (stims) is contained in the single Red capsule. Remove it as you see fit.
