Protein – In every 2-scoop serving, you’re getting 30 grams of fast digesting whey proteins: whey isolate and whey concentrate. How fast does whey absorb? Typically, it will take only a couple of hours. This combination provides your muscles with exactly what they need right after a workout– but what about in the hours beyond your workout, when the recovery process has begun? That’s why we’ve included two types of milk proteins – milk isolate, which digests over about 3.5 hours, and micellar casein, which digests over 4+ hours – so you are in an anabolic state for over 4 hours after a workout – ideal for the best start to your recovery.
BCAA Matrix – Load Up contains 4.6 grams of BCAAs in a unique 8:1:1 ratio. This means you’re getting 3 grams of Leucine to 500 mg of Isoleucine and 500 mg of Valine. What’s that? The numbers don’t add up? That’s because you’re also getting 600 mg of Active TR™ Time Released Leucine – this is a patented microencapsulated form of Leucine that, in a study using human test subjects given 1.5 grams of TR-Leucine, showed statistically significant increases in protein synthesis stimulation two hours after ingestion. Additionally, the rate of post-workout recovery improved. What’s the primary reason TR-Leucine outperforms regular Leucine? Protein synthesis is stimulated in a manner that’s dependent on the dose, however, there is a limit of stimulation in response to a given dosage. By releasing Leucine over time, TR-Leucine bypasses this limit and delivers Leucine in a more effective manner for superior protein synthesis and ultimately, greater muscle growth.
Glucose Recovery Matrix – This powerful Matrix consists of a synergistic combination of Dextrose (14 grams) for fast absorption of much-needed post-workout simple carbs, Palatinose ™ Isomaltulose (6 grams), a low glycemic, slow release carb that avoids insulin spikes, and Cluster Dextrin® (5 grams), a slow digesting carb that helps drive protein into the muscles and helps replenish depleted glycogen stores. This advanced Recovery Matrix also includes Glutamine (5 grams), which can be depleted after exercise and is one of the critical amino acids needed after a workout to promote recovery and protein synthesis, and Waxy Maize (4 Grams), another carb source that can dramatically enhance nutrient absorption into the muscles.
Creatine Matrix – Creatine is, without a doubt, the most well researched supplement in the world. One thing is certain, Creatine works, and works well, which is why it’s included in Load Up. More recent research has suggested that Creatine is important for recovery, in fact one recent study suggests that Creatine enhances muscle force recovery. Additionally, Creatine builds up your ability to train at a consistently high level. Load Up features 3 types of Creatine for maximum absorption with no bloating or gastric discomfort: Creatine MagnaPower® (1.5 grams), which is Creatine chelated or bound to Magnesium, Creatine Monohydrate (1.5 grams), the original version of Creatine, and Creatine Anhydrous (1 gram), which yields more Creatine per gram because all moisture is removed.
Premium Electrolyte Matrix – Re-hydrating after an intense workout is a critical part of post-workout recovery. Load Up gets your mineral balance where it should be and hydrates your tired muscles with a potent Electrolyte Matrix consisting of Raw Coconut Water (500 mg), one of the best and most nutritionally complete natural hydrators available, Magnesium Glycerphosphate (250 mg), Calcium Citrate (160 mg), and Sodium Citrate (150 mg), all important electrolyte minerals that not only hydrate the body, but also help repair and rebuild damaged tissue, as in your muscles after a tough, intense workout.
Joint Matrix – One of the unique features of Load Up is our special Joint Matrix, designed to support joint health and function and protect them from the beating you subject them to when you kill it in the gym. This potent Matrix includes D-Glucosamine Sulfate Potassium Chloride (1 gram), Chondroitin Sulfate (500 mg), MSM (500 mg) and KollaGen II-xs™ Collagen Type II (200 mg). Why overlook your joints? Hard training takes a toll over time, take care of your joints now and you’ll be in the gym for years to come!
