The Pioneer of Intra-Workout Supplementation
Stimulate the Anabolic Response DURING Exercise, Increase Strength & Endurance!
What is the point of investing your hard earned money on supplements that claim to be the latest and greatest phenomenon when they are NOT going to help you DURING your workouts?
Bodybuilding is about Body--Building. During workouts, muscles are torn down and fatigue can be a tremendous challenge. By providing your muscles with effective nutrients DURING your workout, you will boost the anabolic response, fight the catabolic effects of exercise and delay muscular fatigue, ultimately leading to NEW muscle gains!
Continuing to evolve with the latest advancements in Nutrient Timing Science, we bring you IntrAbolic:
Intra=(DURING)+Anabolic(Muscle Building)= IntrAbolic,The Pioneer of Intra-Workout Supplementation!
1. Stimulate Muscle Growth
2. Fight Muscle Breakdown
3. Boost Explosive Muscular Strength & Increase Endurance
4. Increase Muscle Fullness and Vascularity
5. IntrAbolic-Peptides provide rapidly absorbed, low-molecular weight di- and tripeptides
6. Blends easily with spoon or in water bottle
What makes IntrAbolic so unique and effective?
Custom Whey Protein Hydrolysate = IntrAbolic-Peptides?
IntrAbolic works by utilizing a unique whey protein hydrolysate (WPH) found exclusively in IntrAbolic. Our custom WPH has undergone a high degree of hydrolysis (over 30%) which supplies primarily low-molecular weight, di-and tripeptides we refer to as IntrAbolic-Peptides. Unlike standard intact proteins and long chain peptides, IntrAbolic-Peptides do not have to undergo the typical slow digestive process. Their unique properties also allow them to utilize a highly efficient transport system, specific to di-and tripeptides. Unlike regular amino acids derived from intact proteins which are slow to enter the bloodstream, IntrAbolic-Peptides are rapidly absorbed, causing a tremendous spike in extracellular amino acids. Research has shown, it is extracellular amino acid concentrations that stimulate and signal our bodies to increase protein synthesis and maximize the anabolic response. Concurrently, this large amino acid spike causes an insulin increase to fight muscle breakdown which occurs during training. Rapid and efficient absorption also makes these peptides ideal for use during your workout as they will not cause bloating or stomach discomfort like other intact proteins.
Free-form amino acids
Another highly efficient and rapid way to get amino acids into the blood (second only to WPH) is through ingestion of free-form amino acids (ffAA's), specifically the essential amino acids in free form. Intensive nutrient timing research studies show ffAA's (due to their quick absorption) can cause a big spike in blood plasma amino acid concentrations and when timed properly with exercise, may illicit a much greater anabolic response from exercise than intact proteins can. Combining WPH with ffAA's creates a powerful one-two punch in boosting anabolism and fighting catabolism. The beauty of combining di-and tripeptides from WHP with ffAA's is both use different intestinal transporters to carry them into the blood, maximizing absorption speed with very little redundancy. Current research shows that di- and tripeptides may actually enhance the ffAA's transporters, further increasing the rate of absorption.
This powerhouse amino acid has been shown in research to both directly stimulate protein synthesis and indirectly by increasing the hormone insulin, which is both anabolic and anti-catabolic. Simply put, this is one of the most effective amino acids you can take intra-workout and further enhances the anabolic response when other essential amino acids are present.
Beta-Alanine, Carnosine Booster
Touted as the biggest scientific breakthrough since creatine, the amino acid beta-alanine has exploded into the sports nutrition industry, as more people find out just how effective this supplement really is. This worldwide explosion can largely be credited to the enormous popularity of our formula, IntraXCell, The World's First DEDICATED carnosine booster. When taken at a minimum dose of 3.2g per day, its cumulative effects when taken daily for 1-2 weeks, can impact your workout performance greatly.
Much of beta-alanine's effects are realized by boosting the synthesis of a intracellular (inside the cell) buffer called carnosine. Carnosine is a dipeptide, composed of the amino acids, beta-alanine and histidine and has the ability to stabilize muscular pH by soaking up fatigue causing hydrogen ions(H+).
It has been dosed perfectly to stack with IntraXCell to maximize the speed of carnosine synthesis and bring about BIG GAINS in strength, muscle and endurance.. FAST!
The importance of replacing the electrolytes: sodium, potassium and chloride should not be overlooked since, during exercise, we are losing electrolytes at an accelerated rate. Just as important, is their ability to assist in the absorption of fluid and carbohydrate uptake in the gut. The minerals calcium and magnesium are included as they are needed for muscular contraction and muscular growth. When magnesium levels are low during exercise, research has shown fatigue increases.

Frequently Asked Questions
So can't I simply take any whey hydrolysate and receive the same benefits as IntrAbolic?
No. NOT ALL whey protein hydrolysates (WPH) are created equal as there are large variances in degrees of hydrolysis the whey protein has undergone. A low degree of hydrolysis will leave you with a high amount of inferior polypeptides and little to NO di-and tripeptides. Check the panels of other WPH products and look for the percentage of hydrolysis the whey has undergone. If they do not disclose the degree of hydrolysis on the label be warned as it may be VERY low. Do not mistake the percentage of how much of the product is WPH for the percentage of hydrolysis the whey has undergone. They are NOT related. For example, IntrAbolic protein is 100% WPH, but the degree of hydrolysis is over 30%.
Q: Who can benefit from IntrAbolic?
1. Individuals participating in weight training looking to make BIG gains in muscle mass
2. Any individual wanting to increase their strength, power and muscular endurance
3. Slow gainers looking for something to take them to the next level
Q: Do I need to add anything extra to IntrAbolic during my workout to make it more effective?
NO, NOTHING else is necessary. No extra branch chain amino acids, no extra essential amino acids, no extra beta-alanine is needed. All ingredients in IntrAbolic are concentrated, research supported doses and satisfy 100% of the nutrient requirements during your workout in one groundbreaking formula.
Q: Are their any stimulants in IntrAbolic?
Q: Can I take IntrAbolic late at night?
Q: What other supplements do you recommend to maximize the results when taking IntrAbolic?
While nothing extra is needed to be taken intra-workout, outside of IntrAbolic. There are other important ingredients, that should be taken at different times, that can greatly increase your benefits from IntrAbolic:
1. We recommend our beta-alanine, carnosine booster IntraXCell along with our full spectrum, pre-workout formula, SteelEdge.
2. Creatine is another supplement that works great with IntrAbolic and can certainly be stacked together
3. A post-workout, fast acting protein/carbohydrate shake is recommended
4. Depending on the type and duration of your exercise regime, we suggest you add carbohydrates to IntrAbolic. We leave the type and amount of carbohydrate up to your individual needs.
Q: How should I combine these three products?
Our products are formulated based on the latest advancements in nutrient timing science and are designed to work together synergistically. To learn how to properly stack our products and maximize your muscle building and performance results, please read our Nutrient Timing Stack Recommendations below.

are you guys thinking about new flavoring of IntrAbolic?
10-16-2007, 06:39 PM
10-16-2007, 11:44 PM
Yeah, other fresh green apples. I'm not an apple flavor drink type of guy.
10-17-2007, 07:52 AM
Their Steel Edge was orange flavoured, but I didn't find it strong enough for my taste and found that it always ended up granular. Green Apple has promise; I rather like the tart/apple taste from previous Apple-flavoured products I've tried.
I think raspberry would be an awesome flavour to try, that would be one awesome tasting intra-WO shake!
