Vanadyl Sulfate is a form of the trace mineral vanadium. It's necessity in humans has not been established yet, but it is believed to play a role in helping blood sugar (glucose) to enter muscle cells similar to the function that the hormone insulin performs. But vanadyl sulfate is thought to increase insulin sensitivity in only the muscle cells , not adipocytes (fat cells), allowing greater glycogen compensation, which may have the effect of preferentially storing glucose in muscles leaving less to be converted to triglycerides for fat storage. Many bodybuilders experience a feeling of greater muscle fullness ("pump") while taking vanadyl sulfate. Studies have shown that the effects of vanadyl sulfate supplementation last for weeks after discontinuation of the product, so it is probably best to cycle supplementation in a 3 weeks "on", followed by 3 weeks "off" of the supplement.
SportPharma Vanadyl pH
Vanadyl pH works like insulin to help drive significantly more carbohydrates and amino acids from the blood into muscle and liver tissue. Vanadyl pH may help increase muscle and liver glycogen stores, resulting in harder, denser muscles, increased strength and higher energy levels. Vanadyl pH has a pH controlled coating that may increase the body's absorption over that of regular vanadyl sulfate products. In addition, Vanadyl pH may dramatically improve the effectiveness of your other supplements such as creatine monohydrate by increasing absorption of them.
7.5 mg of vanadyl sulfate per capsule. 180 capsules per bottle.

Each Daily Dose of Vanadyl Multi-Complex POWDER Contains:
6 Grams of Taurine - Taurine is a sulfur-containing amino acid found most abundant in skeletal muscle tissue (taurine is the second highest concentrated free amino in muscle tissue). It has been linked directly to cell 'Hyper-Hydration' (allows the muscle cell to hold extra fluid leading to cell expansion - size increase). Taurine also mimics vanadium's 'insulin-like' actions.
60 mg of Vanadyl Sulfate - Everyone is well aware of vanadyl's 'insulin-mimicking' ability. Precise combination of this key mineral with scientifically proven glucose disposal compounds synergistically enhances its overall effectiveness by over 400%.
900IU of DL-alpha tocopherol - this precise dose of alpha tocopherol has been shown to 'significantly enhance whole-body glucose disposal'. Though little known outside of the scientific community, alpha-tocopherol is one of the most effective micro-nutrients for potentiating muscle tissue glucose disposal. Its potent antioxidant properties ideally combat the oxidative nature of vanadium and vanadium like compounds as well as exercise-generated oxidative stress.
720 mcg of Chromium Picolinate - unquestionably the most widely studied (scientifically) mineral with respect to insulin sensitivity. Chromium picolinate has been shown to act as a binding site for insulin in certain insulin sensitive tissues. Chromium picolinate's ability to enhance the efficiency of insulin is well documented in human trials and has a proven effect on increasing lean tissue mass (muscle) and decreasing body fat.
282 mcg of Sodium Selenate - scientific research has shown a strong similarity in action between the sodium selenate form of selenium and vanadyl. Incorporating this mineral in combination with vanadyl in Vanadyl Multi-Complex POWDER gives a synergistically potent potentiator of glucose disposal.

Ostrim is a high protein, very low fat meat snack stick made from ostrich meat.
High in Protein!
Very Low in fat and carbohydrates!
No refrigeration necessary so you can carry it anywhere!
The Ostrich meat in OSTRIM is one of nature's best sources of high-protein, low-fat meat. OSTRIM is a USDA inspected health and fitness food that tastes great. OSTRIM is moist and tender (not like jerky) to truly satisfy your hunger. OSTRIM, nature's superior food protein, surpasses the protein sources found in many nutrition products that are not regulated by the USDA.
OSTRIM packs higher protein with less fat than comparable servings of lean beef, skinless chicken breast and skinless turkey breast.
Proteins are the building blocks of the body. They are directly responsible for the health and maintenance of strong lean muscle, blood,skin, hair and internal organs. Your body feeds on protein throughout the day and especially after you exercise. When your body enters a catabolic state - a state where muscles break down and start to feed on themselves - it is crucial to have a quick, all natural source of protein on hand. OSTRIM is the answer.
When a protein-rich food like OSTRIM is eaten, the protein is broken down by the liver and made into amino acids. These amino acids provide the essential nutrients that your muscles and organs need for recovery and sustained energy. NUTRITIONAL VALUE COMPARISON

OSTRIM High Protein Snack Sticks are ready to eat, with no refrigeration or preparation necessary. OSTRIM's special vacuum packaging exceeds the ordinary packaging of other sports nutrition products. OSTRIM locks the nutrition, freshness and flavor in the package with virtually no air to deteriorate the the quality of the food. You can conveniently enjoy great-tasting OSTRIM anywhere, anytime!
OSTRIM is nearly carbohydrate and sugar free. This allows you to choose how to add carbohydrates to your diet. OSTRIM allows you to better control only what you need to your fitness program - ready access to a high protein, low-fat, near-zero carbohydrate nutritional food supplement. A diet too high in carbohydrates and sugars may cause your body to hold body fat and result in unwanted weight gain.
OSTRIM has less than half the sodium of most other dry-shelf meat sticks or jerky products. It contains only the minimum amount required for dry-shelf stability. the end result is good news for athletes and fitness enthusiasts because OSTRIM has an ideal sodium/potassium balance. A proper balance of sodium/potassium helps eliminate excess water retention. It also helps the body maintain strength and energy through-out your workouts.
USDA guidelines for meats such as Ostrich when used for non-refrigerated meat sticks require the use of at least 3% traditional meats. OSTRIM satisfies this requirement and is approved as a dry-shelf meat stick bearing the USDA seal. OSTRIM is USDA inspected - guaranteeing you a true and correct nutritional profile of quality.
ACCELERADE is the first sports drink that shifts the energy dynamic during exercise to improve performance. Like conventional sports drinks, ACCELERADE supplies the necessary carbohydrates and electrolytes for rehydrating and replenishing muscle reserves.

ACCELERADE contains the ideal combination of simple and complex carbohydrates for rapid and sustained energy. By increasing the energy efficiency of every gram of carbohydrate, ACCELERADE conserves muscle glycogen and improves endurance.
Studies show that, compared to a conventional sports drink, ACCELERADE extends endurance by 24%. And because ACCELERADE contains essential antioxidants, it reduces post-exercise muscle damage. ACCELERADE lets you train longer and harder, and you'll feel less sore afterwards.
Endurox from Pacific Health Labs is a natural dietary supplement that when taken as part of a normal workout regimen can increase fat metabolism and improve workout performance. Endurox is a pure standardized extract of the herb ciwujia (su wah ja). Ciwujia, a root grown in the northeast section of China, has been used safely in Traditional Chinese Medicine for almost 1700 years to treat fatigue and bolster the immune system. Ciwujia has also been used by mountain climbers to improve performance at high altitudes.
Endurox may change the way your body fuels your workout by shifting the energy source from carbohydrate to fat. This unique carbohydrate-sparing action increases fat metabolism and slows the lactic acid buildup which causes muscle soreness and fatigue. In 1996 a US patent was approved for the use of Endurox to improve exercise performance, to increase fat metabolism, and to delay the buildup of lactic acid during a workout.
Studies conducted at a major international research institute and a US health science center show Endurox increases fat metabolism up to 43%. With Endurox, you can build endurance and reduce body fat.
The endurance-enhancing properties of Endurox have been studied both in the laboratory and in the exercise physiology laboratory. The results showed that Endurox reduces lactic acid levels up to 33%, which delays onset of muscle fatigue and soreness during your workout. In addition Endurox raises the anaerobic threshold up to 12.4%, which improves your workout performance.
Trials conducted in the exercise physiology laboratory revealed that subjects taking Endurox had a faster recovery of heart rate following exercise. Fifteen minutes after exercise, the heart rate in the Endurox group was 113% of the pre-exercise value vs. 135% in the control group.
Recommended Dosage: Adults: Take two 400-mg dietary supplement caplets once daily.
What Is ENDUROX EXCEL?
ENDUROX EXCEL is a dietary supplement that, when taken as part of your training regimen, is proven to enhance workout performance by raising the lactate threshold and increasing cardiac efficiency, build endurance, speed recovery, and increase fat metabolism.* The recommended dose of two caplets contains 1,200 mg of ENDUROX, a standardized extract of the herb ciwujia, and 60 IUs of vitamin E (50% more ciwujia than regular ENDUROX and 200% of the Daily Value for vitamin E).
Ciwujia, a natural root grown in the northeast section of China, has been used continuously as part of traditional Chinese medicine for almost 1700 years. The usual human dose is 9 to 27 grams per day of the raw herb. Ciwujia has been shown to be remarkably safe. It has been administered to laboratory animals in multiple studies, at doses ranging from 60 to 200 times the recommended human dose. Ciwujia does not contain caffeine and does not produce any stimulant or anabolic steroid side effects. Ciwujia has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat fatigue and to bolster the immune system. This root intrigued researchers because of published reports on the use of ciwujia by mountain climbers. These reports describe the use of ciwujia to improve work performance at high altitudes and low oxygen conditions. Additional studies showed that laboratory animals administered ciwujia survived longer under low oxygen conditions and that ciwujia could increase oxygenation of heart muscle tissue. Ciwujia is marketed by PacificHealth Laboratories under the trademark of ENDUROX.
