Omega Sports introduces Strive - The premier Intra-Workout product for superior performance enhancement!
There are many BCAA and intra-workout formulas currently on the market for you to choose from. The problem is, however, they all fall woefully short in providing a complete solution to help propel your workouts to be longer, stronger and more intense. Even worse is that the vast majority of these products use inferior-grade ingredients that only benefit their bottom line at the expense of your results. Why use an intra-workout product that does not work as hard as you do?
Strive is different. Formulated using only the very best ingredients in existence, Strive presents a complete performance solution designed to work as hard as you do. Absolutely no expense was spared in creating this unparalleled formula. Our only concern was constructing Strive so that it pushed your workouts to the next level and allowed you to come back bigger, stronger and faster than before. 1) Strive Starts with BCAA's...
We all know that BCAA's are the building blocks to any intra-workout formulation. BCAA's have been shown to elicit muscle protein synthesis (muscle growth), decrease muscle soreness and help athletes recover more quickly.
Sadly, however, not many people know that the wool is being pulled over their eyes in regards to what kind of BCAA's are being used to formulate their favorite product and how they are being charged a premium price for less-than-garbage quality ingredients. ...Ajinomoto iBCAA's
Quite simply, Ajinomoto produces the highest quality amino acids in the world. When you hear "pharmaceutical grade", most of the time, it is an empty marketing term. Not so with Aji-Pure iBCAA's. Strive uses the very same amino acids that are used daily around the world in IV solutions for the hospitalized, infant formulas and pharmaceutical preparations! Aji-Pure iBCAA's mix instantly with just a few stirs of a spoon. No more foamy mess and trying to choke down the dreaded BCAA chunks.
Did you know that most BCAA's being used in other formulations come from hair or duck feathers? It's true! And have you ever smelled BCAA's in their natural state? If you have, you know that they can smell absolutely rancid - even the ones that test out to be 'pure' on the standard supplier's COA. With this information in mind, you're probably asking yourself why in the world anyone would ever use anything other than pure Ajinomoto Aminos. The simple answer..."Follow the money". Aji-Pure iBCAA's cost about 2.5 times what normal BCAA's do. The fact is that not too many companies are willing to use these superior ingredients and cut their profit margins. Ask yourself, "What is more important; my health and athletic performance or some CEO writing himself a fat end-of-the-year bonus?". Now at least you know the truth! 2) The Only Hydrolyzed Protein that Matters - PeptoPro
Over the last year or so, you've probably seen a lot of companies incorporating the use of something called a hydrolyzed protein into their products. Hydrolyzed proteins are proteins that have undergone a process called hydrolysis. What hydrolysis does is breaks the protein down into tiny segments called di and tri peptides. These small peptides are absorbed much more readily and much faster than normal, intact protein, and have shown in clinical studies to promote muscle growth and recovery far more than normal protein ever could hope for. And you may have guessed by now, but PeptoPro has the absolute highest amounts of di and tri peptides in existence - over 60%!
Pretty cool, eh? But not so fast! Remember our greedy CEO and his unwillingness to sacrifice profits for product excellence? Well this same CEO is not using the patented Hydrolyzed Casein PeptoPro, which has numerous human clinical studies showing its superiority. No - most companies are using a generic hydrolyzed whey. Why whey? Again, follow the money. A typical hydrolyzed whey costs about 5-6 times less than the proven, patented PeptoPro. Worse still, most products using a hydrolyzed whey do not even tell you the percentage of di and tri peptides in their ingredient, only saying that information is 'proprietary'. Now if you were using an ultra-high grade ingredient, you would want to tell people about it, wouldn't you? Of course you would. Now admittedly, PeptoPro does not contain as many amino acids as a whey hydrolyze does (and the difference is absolutely miniscule at normal doses), but the fact that Pepto Pro absorbs far faster and far more efficiently than any whey currently available, still means that with PeptoPro you are delivering more amino acids to your muscles, period. PeptoPro is the undisputed king of hydrolyzed proteins, and it is backed by science.
Furthermore, PeptoPro is virtually flavorless and mixes instantly - two absolutely vital factors when drinking something that must be light and refreshing during a grueling workout. On the other hand, hydrolyzed whey (again what most companies are using) is so extremely bitter that it must be used in tiny amounts, or covered up with copious amounts of artificial flavoring. Beware of companies touting anything greater than a 15% hydrolyzed whey and it not tasting extremely bitter - something is not adding up. Besides, have you ever tried to drink a thick, bitter sludge-shake between your fourth and fifth sets of heavy squats? Forget about keeping that down! Strive has been formulated not only to be performance enhancing, but also refreshing to drink - a refreshing idea indeed! 3) Breakout With the Supplement Breakthrough L-Carnitine Tartrate
Most everyone is familiar with Acetyl L-Carnitine. Fewer, however, are familiar with L-Carnitine Tartrate. All of that may change, however, as research begins to pile up demonstrating that L-Carnitine Tartrate is superior to Acetyl L-Carnitine at helping you recover from exercise and prevent muscle breakdown.
In controlled settings, LCLT showed the ability to greatly diminish muscle cell damage and muscle soreness after exercise. LCLT works in part by halting muscle catabolism during times of intense stress (such as weightlifting) thereby allowing you to workout harder, for longer periods of time. Starting to sense a theme here with the ingredients in Strive?
LCLT has also shown promise out of the lab and in the real world. Ask anyone who has a chance to use this great ingredient and all agree that LCLT is a rockstar.
