1-TU THE ONLY MEDICALLY APPROVED Oral Delivery System! That's right! 1-TU by Nutrex contains the only medically approved oral delivery system of any prohormone/pro-steroid product in the US. 1-TU was designed by Germany's foremost steroid expert Manfred Bachmann, author of the best-selling steroid bible 'World Anabolic Review' to mimic the delivery system of Germany's number one oral steroid Andriol. Both 1-TU and Germany's most popular steroid utilize an elusive 17-B-undecanoate ester to shuttle it's steroidal compound into the muscles. 1-TU consists of liquid 1-testosterone-17-B-undecanoate dispersed in a sesame oil/oleic acid gel cap. The undecanoate ester allows for 1-testosterone to be absorbed through the lymphatic system, which means it bypasses the destructive effects of the liver completely. In light of that, 1-TU is not only one of the safest prohormone/pro-steroids but also one of the most potent, having a very high bioavailabilty. Moreover, 1-TU doesn't convert to estrogen, it is easy on the stomach and readily absorbable for the muscles.

A: 1-TU by Nutrex is unique because it contains the only medically approved oral delivery system of any prohormone/pro-steroid formula in the US! The type of delivery system is absolutely imperative in making steroidal nutrients like 1-testosterone, 1-andro or 4-andro bio-active and thus getting a maximum muscle-building effect. Today we find countless prohormone/pro-steroid products on the market which all claim to utilize an effective and proven delivery system. This, however, is nothing more than an unethical marketing ploy by the respective supplement companies who simply hype the hell out of their products to get the consumer's business. Reality is, that aside from 1-TU, no other prohormone/pro-steroid formula is having a delivery system which is medically proven, not only in animals, but in humans! Q: Which delivery system is 1-TU utilizing to make it so effective? A: 1-TU mimics the delivery system of Germany's number one oral steroid Andriol, which means both products utilize an elusive 17-B-undecanoate ester to shuttle it's steroidal compound into the muscles. To be precise, 1-TU consists of liquid 1-testosterone-17-B-undecanoate dispersed in a sesame oil/oleic acid gel cap. The 17-B-undecanoate ester allows for 1-testosterone to be absorbed through the lymphatic system, which means, it bypasses the destructive effects of the liver entirely. This makes 1-TU not only one of the safest prohormone/pro-steroids but also one of the most potent, having a high bio-availability. People should really stop wasting their money on prohormone/pro-steroid products with medically unproven delivery systems like ethylcarbonate esters, prophylcarbonate esters or 4-penthyl ethers. Fact is, that only the 17-B-undecanoate ester as found in 1-TU has ever been medically approved for public consumption to properly deliver oral steroidal compounds into the bloodstream. Q: Why is 1-TU dispersed in sesame oil and oleic acid? A: 1-TU can only be properly absorbed via the lymphatic system once it is dissolved in oil. However, not just any oil will do. A pre-mixed solution consisting of 1-testosterone-17-B-undecanoate, sesame oil and oleic acid in the proper ratio will guarantee maximum absorption. Taking straight 1-testosterone, with or without the undecanoate ester, together with a tablespoon of oil, like flax-seed oil for instance, will not do the job. Q: How much 1-TU is in each capsule and what's the best way to take them? A: Each capsule contains 50 mg 1-testosterone-17-B-undecanoate dispersed in a sesame oil/oleic acid solution. Thanks to the high bio-availability, impressive results can already be observed from taking just 2 capsules per day. The researchers at Nutrex recommend to take 1 gelcap 2-3 times spread evenly throughout the day to keep blood levels consistent. For optimum absorption 1-TU should be consumed in combination with a meal. Maximum results can be achieved by cycling 1-TU in a 6 weeks on, 2 weeks off pattern. Q: What kind of results can I expect from 1-TU? A: If there has ever been a natural and legal product capable of giving steroid-like results, then it is 1-TU. 1-TU builds real, quality muscle within a short period of time. Provided you train hard, consume ample amounts of protein and calories, you will experience significant size and strength gains already within the first 2 weeks of taking 1-TU. We can guarantee you: whatever results you got from other pro-steroid/prohormone formulas, 1-testosterone products, andro stacks etc., 1-TU will greatly surpass them. Q: Can 1-TU be stacked with other supplements? A: Absolutely. For extreme mass-building 1-TU should be combined with the ultra potent creatine and glycogen loader Vitargo-CGL. Stacking 1-TU with Vitargo-CGL triggers a variety of anabolic, growth promoting effects, which go far beyond the scope of what ordinary products deliver. Talk about a super hydrated muscle cell, which is ready to absorb much larger amounts of protein, the building block of muscle. For a harder, ripped look, you should add Lipo-6, the only fat-burning formula, which activates a complete and thorough fat-burning process through stimulating all available fat-loss receptors. Lipo-6 The Complete Fat-Burning Formula! Lipo-6 by Nutrex is the first and only fat-burner which can be titled as the complete fat-burning formula. Never before has a product succeeded in attacking all 6 fat receptors in the body needed to burn body fat as quickly as humanly possible.

Yohimbine HCL effectively blocks the alpha-2 receptors which are predominantly located in the fat cells of the upper thighs, glutes and obliques. Females should check out the label of their 'favorite' fat-burner. If it doesn't say Yohimbine HCL, you are not targeting your alpha receptors and you won't get the results you are actually looking for: tight legs and buns. Q: Am I going to lose muscle while using Lipo-6? A: The answer to this question is a resounding no! Lipo-6 is designed to effectively burn fat with a multi-angle attack on all 6 fat receptors. Lipo-6 will burn existing fat, prevent the accumulation of new fat, increase metabolism, exert appetite control and it will do so while maintaining your muscle mass. Lipo-6 has a powerful anti-catabolic, muscle sparing effect which makes Lipo-6 an ideal product for contest preparation, where maximum muscle volume and rock hard conditioning are vital. Q: How do I take Lipo-6? A: For a complete and overall fat loss we recommend taking 2 capsules before breakfast or morning workout and 2 more capsules in the afternoon. For extreme fat loss we recommend taking 2 capsules 3 times daily. For increased energy you would take 2 capsules 30 minutes before training. In any case you should not exceed 6 capsules per day, and you should not take Lipo-6 within 6 hours of going to sleep. Before undertaking the above mentioned recommendations, we suggest that you start with 1 capsule twice daily for the duration of one week in order to assess your own tolerance. Q: What are the ingredients in Lipo-6 and what exactly do they do? A: Lipo-6 has 6 different ingredients designed to give you the most thorough and complete fat-burning effect possible. Here are the facts: Ephedra Sinica 335 mg per serving: Ephedra Sinica is the king of all natural ephedrine alkaloids. Much stronger than its' cousin Ma Huang and very rich in various ephedrine and l-norephedrine alkaloids, Ephedra Sinica attacks the B1 and B2 fat receptors. Caffeine Anhydrous USP 200 mg per serving: Pure pharmaceutical grade caffeine is used instead of the much weaker Guarana or Green Tea version to accelerate the release of free fatty acids from stored fat. Citrus Aurantium 100 mg per serving: Lipo-6 contains specially standardized Citrus Aurantium with high levels of the B3 fat receptor fighting agents Synephrine, N-methyl tyramine, Tyramine, Hordenine and Octopamine. This allows for a full and complete activation of all B receptors, which is crucial for maximum fat loss. Yohimbine HCL 3 mg per serving: Yohimbine HCL is a godsend for men who can't get rid of their love handles and women who have difficulty losing body fat in those stubborn glute and thigh areas. Yohimbine HCL effectively blocks all three alpha receptor categories, which are predominantly located in the fat cells of the upper thighs, lower glutes and obliques. Check out the label of your 'favorite' fat-burner. If it doesn't say Yohimbine HCL, you are not targeting your alpha receptors and you won't get the results you are actually looking for: a slim waistline plus tight legs and buns. Coleus Forskohlii 50 mg per serving: Coleus Forskohlii increases natural thyroid function, which is crucial for long term fat loss. Strict dieting generally slows down thyroid activity, which in turn makes it difficult to continuously lose fat over several weeks. A sluggish thyroid is also the main reason why people often times rebound after the conclusion of a diet and re-gain most of their fat. The Coleus Forskohlii in Lipo-6, which is standardized to a record high 20% of active Forskolin, lays the groundwork for you to keep the weight off. Bioperine 5 mg per serving: Bioperine is a unique thermogenic nutrient that increases the absorption rate of all the fat burning compounds in Lipo-6. Bioperine insures maximum effectiveness and potency. Q: Why is aspirin (white willow bark) not part of the ephedrine/caffeine stack in Lipo-6? A: Aspirin is not included in Lipo-6 because there are indications that aspirin can contribute to stomach ulcers and possible bleeding in the stomach. Besides this unfortunate complication, aspirin lowers body temperature, and this is contradictory to effective fat loss. A key component of extreme fat loss is to increase metabolism and body temperature, therefore, aspirin or white willow bark would defeat the purpose of what Nutrex has set out to accomplish with Lipo-6. Q: What kind of results can I expect from Lipo-6? A: Thanks to targeting all 6 fat receptors in the body simultaneously, you can expect to see profound and rapid fat loss results with Lipo-6, much better than with any other fat loss supplement on the market! Within the first week of using Lipo-6 you will already notice the difference. Your body fat is beginning to melt away and you will find yourself very much in control of your appetite. No hunger, starvation or lack of energy will plague you. Using Lipo-6 for 2 months can result in weight loss of up to 50 pounds, with significant reductions in body fat. With this type of fat loss, men would see lean, hard abs with impressive seperation and striations in all muscle groups. Women would enjoy a slim waistline, tight upper legs and glutes. Q: What can I take with Lipo-6 that would allow me to build a lot of muscle besides losing fat? A: Lipo-6 is your ticket to rapid and complete overall fat loss but if you are also interested in building massive muscles, then you need to target your muscle cells with 1-TU. 1-TU is a cutting edge product because it fuses the extremely potent 1-testosterone molecule with an undecanoate ester thus creating the only medically approved delivery system for oral steroidal compounds. The muscle-building results you will get from this delivery system will blow your mind! You should also include the new and revolutionary creatine and glycogen loader Vitargo-CGL to your muscle building arsenal. Vitargo-CGL is the future of creatine supplementation utilizing a high molecular weight starch to effectively load creatine and glycogen into the muscles. With 1-TU boosting your testosterone levels, and subsequently increasing your muscles' ability to take in more nutrients like protein, carbohydrates and creatine, you can greatly benefit from a superior creatine formula like Vitargo-CGL. Since Vitargo-CGL is also sugar-free, you are able to build massive muscles without getting fat and feeling bloated as so often happens with ordinary creatine/dextrose formulas. Vitargo-CGL's muscle building properties coupled with the fact that it is sugar-free, makes it the ideal creatine to take when you are using Lipo-6 to get shredded. 1-TU, Vitargo-CGL and Lipo-6 is your recipe for quickly attaining a muscular and lean physique ! Put it to work for you!! Vitargo-CGL Vitargo-CGL: The Future of Creatine Supplementation The fusion of Creatine with Vitargo as seen in Vitargo-CGL marks the most significant advance in creatine technology. Vitargo is a newly developed and patented sugar-free high molecular weight carbohydrate from Sweden that is revolutionizing the way we take creatine. Vitargo has been clinically tested in Europe at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden and it possesses such unique characteristics that you will never again consume creatine by itself, or in any combination with sugars like dextrose or maltodextrin. Vitargo-CGL by Nutrex is pure dynamite. Vitargo-CGL acts like a pump, pulling creatine and water along with it into the bloodstream, thus synchronizing creatine and insulin levels for maximum creatine transport to the muscles. This avoids a premature insulin spike as seen in creatine/dextrose formulas, where dextrose is absorbed faster than creatine. More creatine can now be transported to the muscles resulting in significantly better muscle and strength gains as compared to non-Vitargo creatine formulas. Vitargo restores muscle energy (glycogen) 70% faster than dextrose, thus superhydrating the muscles cells in record time. No other creatine product in the world makes you recover quicker from your workouts and puts you into an anabolic, muscle-building state faster, than Vitargo-CGL. Vitargo-CGL is the perfect post-workout creatine supplement. Vitargo passes through the stomach 80% faster than dextrose, thus eliminating the risk of stomach discomfort as often seen in creatine/dextrose formulas. There is no loss of creatine due to diarrhea, no stomach cramping and no bloated feeling with Vitargo-CGL. Since Vitargo-CGL is absorbed so rapidly it can easily be consumed directly before or even during workouts without upsetting your stomach! Vitargo is as potent in stimulating insulin as dextrose, yet it is completely sugar-free. No need to ever consume creatine products overloaded with simple sugars like dextrose. Look at your current creatine label and compare it's sugar content to Vitargo-CGL. Does your creatine product contain 20, 30, 50 or even 75 grams of sugar per serving? Vitargo-CGL has ZERO sugar and yet it stimulates the same massive insulin spike needed for maximum creatine transport as 75 grams of sugar do. Scientific Studies Prove Vitargo's Superior Effects! K. Piehl Aulin, E. Hultman, European Journal of Applied Physiology, 81:346-351, 2000: Muscle glycogen resynthesis rate in humans after supplementation of drinks containing carbohydrates with low and high molecular masses (Vitargo). J.B. Leiper, K. Soderlund, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology Karolinska Institute and Department of Sport and Health Sciences, Stockholm University, Sweden: Improved gastric emptying rate in humans of a unique carbohydrate polymer (Vitargo) with gel forming properties. Vitargo is a registered trademark of Carbamyl AB. Q: I'm currently taking a creatine product that also contains dextrose. I know that dextrose spikes insulin which in turn stimulates creatine transport to the muscles. I'm getting good results, so why should I switch to Vitargo-CGL? A: Creatine plus dextrose usually produces better results than just taking creatine by itself. This is due to the fact that dextrose stimulates insulin and insulin transports creatine to the muscles. Regular creatine doesn't give you this edge. Even so creatine plus dextrose is superior to regular creatine and produces good results in some individuals, this doesn't mean that its' effects can't be surpassed. Dextrose principally has three flaws. First, dextrose has a high osmolality rate once mixed with water. Such a solution passes through the stomach relatively slowly and water is retained longer in the stomach, since dextrose binds additional water from the body's reserves (small intestine, blood, muscles). This oftentimes creates an uncomfortable bloated feeling in the stomach. The second disadvantage of dextrose is, that it is absorbed faster than creatine. Dextrose and creatine do not enter the bloodstream at the same time. In scientific studies dextrose is therefore given 30 minutes after creatine. If you take a creatine product which contains both creatine and dextrose, the dextrose component causes an insulin spike in the blood when most of the creatine is still sitting in the stomach. This leaves a substantial portion of the creatine without a carrier and it goes to waste. The third major drawback of dextrose is the nature of this carbohydrate. Dextrose is pure sugar. Consuming large amounts of simple sugars like dextrose every day is from an athletic and nutritional standpoint not very desirable. Vitargo-CGL on the other hand, which uses the patented high molecular weight carbohydrate Vitargo instead of dextrose, has none of these flaws. Vitargo creates a low osmolality rate in water and passes through the stomach 80% faster than dextrose. In doing so, Vitargo acts like a pump, pulling creatine and water along with it into the bloodstream. Such a quick passage through the stomach greatly minimizes the risk of stomach discomfort. Moreover, this synchronizes creatine and insulin blood levels because Vitargo and creatine enter the bloodstream together. A greater amount of creatine can now be transported to the muscles because of insulin's timely presence. On top of that, Vitargo activates the same powerful insulin spike as seen in dextrose and yet it is completely sugar-free. Creatine product overloaded with simple sugars like dextrose have simply been rendered obsolete by the fusion of creatine with Vitargo. There can be no question that Vitargo-CGL is superior to creatine/dextrose formulas. Q: Can you give me a quick rundown of the facts why creatine plus Vitargo as seen in Vitargo-CGL is superior to creatine with dextrose? A: Here are the facts. Vitargo passes through the stomach 80% faster than dextrose, thus minimizing the risk of stomach discomfort. Vitargo accelerates creatine transport from the stomach into the bloodstream. Vitargo basically acts like a pump, pulling creatine and water along with it from the stomach through the small intestine and into the bloodstream. This synchronizes creatine and insulin levels because creatine and the insulin stimulating Vitargo enter the bloodstream together, which is not the case in creatine/dextrose formulas where dextrose is absorbed before creatine. More creatine can now be transported to the muscles. Vitargo is absorbed 70% faster by the muscles than dextrose resulting in a quicker recovery rate from training. In addition to this with less stomach discomfort and more creatine transport, creatine plus Vitargo clearly emerges as the better post-workout creatine formula. Vitargo is as potent as dextrose in stimulating insulin to initiate creatine transport, yet it is completely sugar-free. Creatine products overloaded with simple sugars like dextrose have now become a thing of the past. Vitargo is 70% more efficient in restoring muscle glycogen than dextrose. This leads to even greater cell volumization due to a super hydrated effect of the muscle cells. Q: What exactly is Vitargo? Vitargo is a unique patented high molecular weight carbohydrate made from Swedish waxy maize starch. Starch is the raw material for carbohydrates used in today's sports supplements. Dextrose and maltodextrin, which are often found in creatine products are also derived from starch. The difference between Vitargo, dextrose and maltodextrin is that dextrose and maltodextrin are starch molecules with a low molecular weight, which means they are already well broken down. That's why they are referred to as sugars or simple carbohydrates. Vitargo on the other hand has a molecular weight which is about 100 times greater than maltodextrin and about 3000 times greater than dextrose. Vitargo is therefore a long chain complex carbohydrate. The significance of this is, that mixed in water, Vitargo acts far more favorably than dextrose or maltodextrin. Vitargo forms an extremely hypotonic solution with a very low osmolality rate which passes through the stomach very quickly. In doing so it acts like a pump, pulling water and creatine along with it. Dextrose and maltodextrin on the other hand form a solution with a relatively high osmolality rate, which means they pass through the stomach 80% slower than Vitargo. They also bind water from the body's reserves (small intestine, blood, muscles) and draw it into the stomach. This explains why so many creatine/dextrose users experience stomach discomfort or a bloated feeling. Vitargo is also absorbed 70% faster by the muscles than dextrose or maltodextrin. Moreover, unlike dextrose and maltodextrin, Vitargo contains no sugar or simple carbohydrates, yet it causes the same powerful insulin spike as the sugar dextrose to initiate creatine transport. Using Vitargo over sugars like dextrose, maltodextrin, fructose or sucrose in your creatine product is clearly a winning choice. Vitargo is manufactured only in Sweden by the company Carbamyl AB which is one of the largest starch manufacturers in the world. Vitargo by itself and in combination with creatine is already being used by German, Russian, Chinese and Swedish olympic athletes. Now that Carbamyl AB has successfully developed the technology to get Vitargo into mass production, not only elite athletes but all athletes can benefit from Vitargo's unique effects. Vitargo-CGL has become the first product in the US that has been licensed by its' Swedish patent holders to contain the proper amount of Vitargo (70 grams per serving) and creatine monohydrate to produce superior creatine results. Q: What should I mix Vitargo-CGL with? Water or juice? A: To achieve the optimum low osmolality rate (osmolality defines how fast a solution passes through the stomach; the lower the osmolality rate of a solution the quicker it passes through the stomach) for Vitargo-CGL, and to further accelerate the crucial transport of creatine, water and Vitargo from the stomach to the small intestine and subsequently into the bloodstream, we suggest that you mix each serving with 20 oz. of cold water. We strongly advise not to lower this amount of water since it would increase the osmolality rate of the solution and delay it's passage through the stomach. Do not mix Vitargo-CGL with fruit juices like grape juice, apple juice, orange juice etc. The sugars found in fruit juices would increase the osmolality rate of Vitargo-CGL and hence slow down it's absorption into the bloodstream. Simply stay with 20 oz. of cold water and you will get optimum results. Q: What kind of results can I expect from taking Vitargo-CGL? A: We are totally convinced that you will experience better results from Vitargo-CGL than from any other creatine formula you have ever tried before. Using creatine plus Vitargo is a much superior way of loading creatine and glycogen into the muscles. You will get instant gratification from this combination. It is not uncommon to gain up to 12 lbs of solid mass within the first 2 weeks of taking Vitargo-CGL. Since Vitargo-CGL is so effective in transporting creatine to the muscles and in filling up muscular glycogen stores, the muscle cells will become super hydrated in a matter of days. This leads to dramatic gains in size and strength. Because the Vitargo element in Vitargo-CGL restores muscle energy 70% faster than dextrose or maltodextrin you will also recover quicker from heavy training. This is an added bonus since accelerated muscle recovery means better muscle gains. On top of that, all these benefits occur without the stomach discomfort and bloated feeling so many creatine users experience, and you don't have to ingest one single gram of sugar. Q: When is the best time to take Vitargo-CGL? A: On training days you should always consume one serving of Vitargo-CGL with 20 oz. of water immediately after your workout. Muscular creatine uptake and insulin sensitivity are then at their highest and muscle energy needs to be restored as quickly as possible. Since Vitargo-CGL is so effective at delivering creatine to the muscles, and thanks to Vitargo it is also 70% faster in restoring muscle energy than dextrose and maltodextrin, Vitargo-CGL is the ideal creatine formula for post-workout consumption. On non-training days you should take one serving of Vitargo-CGL with 20 oz. of water immediately upon rising or alternatively one hour before a meal. Vitargo-CGL can be taken any time during the day as long as it is not consumed on a full stomach or in conjunction with a meal. This would delay the crucial passage of creatine, water and Vitargo from the stomach into the bloodstream. Following a five day loading phase with two servings a day, one single serving per day is all you need to see dramatic results. Q: Should I cycle Vitargo-CGL? A: There exists no scientific evidence which supports the notion that creatine works better when taken in cycles. In order to support muscle growth over the long-term we suggest that you use Vitargo-CGL for at least eight weeks. Since Vitargo-CGL is such a superior post-workout creatine drink, it can actually be consumed year round to aid in muscle recovery. Considering the fact that Vitargo-CGL is completely sugar-free it is far more suitable for long-term consumption than creatine products overloaded with sugars like dextrose. Q: Why doesn't Vitargo-CGL contain alpha-lipoic acid (ALA)? Isn't ALA supposed to improve the effects of creatine? A: The answer to this question is a very simple one: Vitargo-CGL is a product with integrity, that doesn't just make label claims. Vitargo-CGL is not designed to draw you in with an interesting element, and then not give you enough of that same element to make the product work like you think it is working. That, however, is exactly the case with ALA found in today's creatine products. A recent scientific study1 has proven that taken in a single dose of 200-400 mg with or without dextrose, ALA does not measurably affect insulin sensitivity or creatine transport. Unfortunately, 200 mg per serving is the standard dose of ALA in most creatine/alpha-lipoic acid formulas. The amount of ALA in these products is by far not enough to produce results. The same scientific study has demonstrated that a 160 pound athlete needs at least 1000 mg of ALA and a 220 pound athlete needs a minimum of 1500 mg of ALA to see an effect. Now check the label of your creatine product and do the math. With the customary 200 mg of ALA per serving you would need to consume at least 5-7 servings to get any measurable results. The reason why you only find arbitrary amounts of ALA in creatine products is twofold. First, ALA is a relatively expensive raw material and at a dose of 1000-1500 mg per serving, the product price would go up tremendously. Second, because ALA is an acid, it would cause a strong burning sensation in the throat and also in the stomach at such a high dose. The solution would almost become impossible to drink. Here's another reason why Vitargo-CGL doesn't contain ALA. Scientific studies1 have also revealed that if you take creatine with ALA after training, the influence of ALA on creatine and glucose transport is overshadowed by the effects of exercise on insulin sensitivity. In other words, ALA offers no benefits for creatine users once it is consumed as part of a post-workout drink. Vitargo-CGL however, gives you the 70 grams of Vitargo you need in order to produce the results you are expecting from a superior creatine supplement. We at Nutrex Research do not throw the name Vitargo out just for a label claim. 1. D.G.
