If you are looking for a pre-workout shake that will help power you up for the gym and make you feel like hitting the plates, wait no longer. The nitric oxide (NO) activators, creatine and stimulants in this formula will energize you while helping to make you look more vascular and gain size. Shock Therapy can actually motivate you to get into the gym and hit the weights! Unlike many of the other pre-workout NO products on the market, we include an antioxidant complex that is essential when taking nitric oxide stimulating ingredients, due to their oxidative nature on human cells. Now you can have the "perpetual pump," the intense workout you crave, and keep your body safe from the free radicals that are produced as a side effect of the nitric oxide activation process. Why should you choose Universal Nutritio's Shock Therapy?
If you want to get energized and motivated in the gym, Shock Therapy is for you. This formula will make for some very intense workouts that will help you put up more weight and will ultimately result in mass gains. Your body will feel pumped all day from the blood rushing to your muscle tissue delivering needed nutrients for real growth. We don't use any sugar so there is no worry about fat gains. We use the best ingredients, from creatine all the way to our antioxidant blend. You won't find another product like Shock Therapy; it is truly unique amongst pre-workout energizers and cell volumizers.
It Has a Healthier Formula:
Since Shock Therapy helps your body produce more nitric oxide, you need an anti-oxidant complex to scavenge the harmful free radicals that are released as a result of the nitric oxide process. Our competitors aren't keeping your health in mind; we are.
It Has A Better Formula:
Shock Therapy uses R-ALA to help shuttle the creatine and nitric oxide stimulating components into circulation, whereas the competition either does not use any form of alpha lipoic acid or uses the standard ALA, which has been shown to be less effective than R-ALA. Many individuals do not like to ingest aspartame and prefer sweeteners such as sucralose. Shock Therapy does not use any aspartame, while some of the other popular products do.
Torrent™ sets a new standard for post-workout (PWO) nutrition. Though often overlooked, this part of the bodybuilding equation is the most critical aspect in the quest to foster new growth. Properly utilizing this time is vital for inducing overall muscle mass "activation". Torrent’s™ formula is designed to maximize the anabolic “window of opportunity” that exists after a hard training session, when muscle protein synthesis can potentially be stimulated for hours. Simultaneously, the rate of protein degradation is also increased.
In the absence of critical macronutrient intake, a bodybuilder’s protein balance would remain negative. If you want to build muscle this definitely isn’t good. This is where Torrent™ comes into play. It acts quickly and efficiently by supplying your muscles with a powerful cascade of criticial nutrients, all in a matter of moments. After a hard workout your muscles are torn down, glycogen is depleted and your body enters a damaging catabolic state. For the bodybuilder, this is a state of red alert.
When consumed immediately post-training, Torrent’s™ proprietary blend of muscle mass activators rush to bring your body back into anabolic “green light” status, quickly repairing damaged muscle fibers while triggering fresh growth. First and foremost, it has super high-efficiency protein. Torrent™ is loaded with hydrolyzed whey protein, which consists of small whey peptides that can be quickly digested and absorbed. Hydrolyzed protein is the quickest digesting protein available.
Torrent™ also contains a specialized Osmosulin Matrix™ of carbohydrates that allows for quick glycogen replenishment and the fastest possible absorption of muscle-nourishing nutrients. This blend is packed with an optimal ratio of complex carbs from innovative, highly prized waxy maize starch, maltodextrin, and dextrose. This blend allows for a dramatic boost of anabolic insulin via simple sugars coupled with the nutrient-drawing effects of “high molecular weight” carbohydrates.
The formula is then generously spiked with 18 grams of a key proprietary blend of advanced aminos and creatines… A special "anabolic matrix" that will put your muscles in post-workout recovery overdrive. When consumed immediately after intense training this potent blend can induce a powerful anabolic surge that shuttles nutrients into your starved muscle cells.
Heightened anabolism, rapid nutrient transport, insulin potentiating--all delivered by means of a delicious post-workout growth cocktail. And we mean delicious. Torrent™ is an anabolic force mother nature never intended. Blow your plateaus away with Torrent™.
Intra-Aid: Targated Intra-Workout Performance Matrix
Proper workout nutrition (intra-workout) is an area that is being supported by a legit, growing body of science. Intra-workout nutrition represents the next big nutritional frontier for bodybuilders and weightlifters. Even so, many lifters often ignore this period. Why is targeted intra-workout supplementation so important? Here's a short list: proper rehydration, muscle and liver glycogen resynthesis, improved immune function, decreased muscle catabolism, increased muscle protein synthesis, increased muscle anabolism, faster recovery and training at a higher intensity. It's amazing how so many benefits can get overlooked. Intra-Aid brings intra-workout nutrition into the 21st century. It's a combination of key complexes that work in synergy to maximize the aforementioned benefits of workout supplementation. Intra-Aid consists of 5 potent components: fast-acting hydrolyzed protein, a highly specialized carbohydrate blend, critical electrolytes, an essential amino acid blend, and key ergogenic agents. Intra-Aid combines all of the scientific benefits of proper intra-workout supplementation, leaving out the guesswork. The gym water fountain and popular high fructose "sports" drinks may be good for the regular athlete, but for the serious weight lifter, they just can't compare. Think of Intra-Aid as first-aid for your workout.
What is intra-workout nutrition and why is it important for weightlifters?
Intra-workout nutrition plays a vital role in ensuring that you get the most out of your workout, and helps you take your workout to the next level. Water and carb drinks alone can only do so much. Hydrolyzed whey, EAAs, BCAAs, electrolytes, carbs and ergogenic agents work together to ensure that you maximize your results.
What is the "anabolic window of opportunity"?
The "anabolic window of opportunity," as discussed in bodybuilding circles, is the open window of time immediately after a hard training session. During this time it's your job to get as many of the right nutrients through that opening as possible... However, it doesn't begin and end solely with post-workout nutrition. All bases need to be covered: pre-, intra- and post-. In terms of intra-workout nutrition, a recent study shows that protein co-ingestion w/ carbs stimulates whole-body and muscle protein synthesis rates during resistance exercise.
Why both free form aminos and hydrolyzed protein?
Intra-Aid is loaded with both free form essential amino acids and hydrolyzed protein to further enhance the anabolic response during resistance exercise. The dual combo allows you to efficiently combat the dreaded catabolic effects of training as well as delay muscular fatigue, further enhancing your training performance and recovery.
Why is Intra-Aid different from regular "sports drinks" designed for endurance athletes?
Intra-Aid is different from regular "sports drinks" because these commercial drinks only contain carbs (usually high-fructose corn syrup) and electrolytes. Where's the hydrolyzed whey? Where are the free-form EAAs? Any extra ergogenic aids? Most commercial sports drinks lack these vital nutrients. Without hydrolyzed whey, EAAs and beta alanine there is no way that you can properly prevent muscle catabolism, delay muscular fatigue and enhance muscle protein synthesis during your workout.
Is intra-workout nutrition backed by science?
Intra-workout nutrition is backed by both anecdotal feedback as well as actual science. Studies suggest that co-ingestion of hydrolyzed protein and carbs during resistance exercise stimulates whole-body as well as muscle protein synthesis. Proper intra-workout nutrition also works to support proper hydration, and increase strength, endurance and recovery.
Intra-Aid is more expensive that regular sports drinks. Why is that?
Most regular "sports drinks" are comprised of inferior carbs and electrolytes. They use cheap sources to mass produce and market it to many cosumers. Intra-Aid is an intra-workout supplement designed specifically for bodybuilders. It's packed with hydro whey, EAAs, beta alanine, key carbs and electrolytes. All ingredients are backed by science and are gym tested for results. If you want the best results, Intra-Aid goes to bat for you.
Do I need to take Intra-Aid every day?
Intra-Aid is designed specifically to be taken during a workout. There is no need to supplement with Intra-Aid on non-workout days.
Should I supplement anything else with Intra-Aid during the workout?
No. Intra-Aid is the bodybuilder's workout drink. It contains all the necessary ingredients for during workout nutrition and performance, hydrolyzed protein, essential aminos, electrolytes, carbohydrates and key ergogenics.
Are there any stimulants in Intra-Aid?
Intra-Aid is stimulant free. You should consume stimulants prior to your workout so that they are already in your system when your workout begins. Try using Universal Nutrition's Shock Therapy, which will take care of all your pre-workout supplementation.
Does Intra-Aid contain creatine?
No. Intra-Aid is creatine free. Most bodybuilders already supplement with creatine so we felt it was unnecessary to add it to Intra-Aid.
Can I use Intra-Aid while cutting or is it just for bulking?
You can use Intra-Aid while cutting or bulking. Since it provides you with all the key nutrients necessary during your workout, lntra-Aid will help preserve strength while cutting and enhance strength while on a bulk.
Can I stack Intra-Aid with other Universal supplements?
Yes. Intra-Aid can be stacked with a variety of other Universal supplements. In particular, if you are looking to take advantage of the "anabolic window of opportunity" that exists after your workout, we suggest the following stack?
* Pre-workout: 1 scoop of Shock Therapy.
* Intra-workout: 1 scoop of Intra-Aid.
* Post-workout: 3 scoops of Torrent.
I lift weights at night. Will I have any issues if I take Intra-Aid late in the day?
Absolutely not. Intra-Aid is stimulant free and will not keep you up at night. It provides you with the proper nutrition to get the most out of your workout.
Why are there carbs in Intra-Aid? If I'm on a low-carb diet can I use it?
To be a complete intra-workout supplement, a small dose of carbs are necessary. Protein, aminos or carbs alone isn't enough. When you combine key forms of protein, carbs and aminos together, you've got complete intra-workout nutrition. You can use Intra-Aid on a low-carb diet. Ten grams of targeted intra-workout carbohydrates will work to fuel your workout and increase your strength and endurance without any negative effects to your low-carb diet.
