(World Health Organization). ProFibe, a flavorless, powdered dietary supplement has been clinically demonstrated to be an effective adjunct to diet and exercise for reducing cholesterol levels and reducing soft arterial plaque. Water soluble fibers (guar gum, citrus pectin, locust beans, etc.) are very viscous, slimy and sticky in their natural state. It would be virtually impossible to consume therapeutic doses (15 gms/day) of these fibers. What our researchers figured out was how to reduce the viscosity, slimy stickiness of WSF by complexing it to a protein (egg white, soy, etc.). Through the complexing of WSF to protein we were able to improve the actual functionality (benefit) of WSF by increasing the utilization of the WSF by the body. This is accomplished by enzymes from the pancreas digesting the protein in the small intestines, releasing the WSF. The WSF passes into the large intestine where 100% of the fiber is utilized. Bacteria in the large bowel breakdown the WSF into short chain fatty acids. It is the fatty acids we believe are responsible for lowering LDL-C and interfere with the adhesive characteristics of plaque promoting regression of artheriosclerosis (blockage). The flatulence (gas) one experiences is created by the bacterial action in the large intestine. The amount of flatulence can be effected by diet as well. Bean-O (3-5 drops) in your ProFibe may eliminate the flatulence. Lessening of flatulence should occur over time but again remember diet plays a part too. 100% Natural Lowers LDL (Bad) Cholesterol up to 25% in 30 days on average there by reducing total cholesterol.

Count the number of people you can see as you read this. Now imagine half of them gone. Statistically, nearly half the population will die of heart disease or a cardiovascular related illness nearly one in two! If you are married, the odds are that one of you will succumb to this killer. A significant factor in heart disease and related conditions such as high blood pressure and stroke is artheriosclerosis (clogging of the arteries by accumulated LDL [low-density lipoprotein the "bad"] cholesterol in the form of plaque). Several factors con-tribute to cholesterol levels smoking, exercise, diet, stress, and heredity. Studies show that every 1 percent drop in blood cholesterol results in a 2 percent drop in your risk of heart disease. This is wonderful news but without an effective, inexpensive, safe way to drop blood cholesterol levels and to repair the damage already done this news is possibly useless. The ProFibe Answer Fortunately, there is an effective, inexpensive, safe way to lower blood cholesterol. It's called ProFibe and it's been changing people's health, and their lives, for more than 5 years. ProFibe is a water-soluble fiber supplement containing guar gum and citrus pectin. These water soluble fibers are complexed to soy protein to increase palatability and functionality. ProFibe is a tasteless powder, which is mixed into prepared foods or blended into beverages. It is approved under the FDA's G.R.A.S. (Generally Recognized as Safe) ruling and accepted by the joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives. Since it is a constituent of all plants, soluble fiber has long been part of the human diet. National and international food regulations recognize that water-soluble fibers are valuable foods and can reduce the risk of heart disease. The Astounding Results of ProFibe ProFibe can reduce cholesterol levels up to 25-30 percent for most users in as little as a month in some cases, a drop of more than 50 points! That's good news for preventing future artheriosclerosis but that's not all! ProFibe has also been shown to reduce existing arteriosclerosis (soft plaque) by one third or more plaque that is clinging to the arterial walls, preventing the free flow of blood, actually reduces and begins to disappear. Moreover, ulceration of the arterial walls, caused by the damaging plaque, heals. Many people have been able, under the supervision of their physicians, to discontinue taking cholesterol reducing prescription medications because the results they've obtained with ProFibe have been so promising. Many prescription cholesterol reducers have significant side effects. ProFibe not only greatly improves these patients' cardiovascular health, but reduces their risk of developing other potentially serious health problems as well. The heart is a unique muscle that functions as a pump. The normal heart is about the size of a fist. Each year, the heart beats more than 35 million times, and pumps 730,000 gallons of blood. Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to all parts of the body through a circulatory system that, if formed into one continuous tube, would stretch for 60,000 miles - about a quarter of the distance from the earth to the moon! The blood's other function is to carry waste products away, to be disposed of through filtration by the kidneys, liver, and lungs. The activity of the heart and the circulatory system is constant, and so vital to life that if the heart stops pumping for as little as four to six minutes, brain damage or death can occur. The heart works by pumping blood through a series of four chambers: the right and left atria, and the right and left ventricles. It also has four valves which allow blood to flow in only one direction when the heart contracts. An electrical impulse generated by a cluster of highly specialized cells called the senatorial node, or the sinus node, moves across the heart and causes the muscle to contract, or beat. The electrical impulses occur at a regular rate; however, that rate can be influenced by hormones or emotional reactions. Blood is pumped out of the heart to the extremities and organs via arteries (the largest "tubes" in the circulatory system). The blood is distributed to all parts of the body via arterioles (small arteries) and capillaries (minute blood vessels). After the blood's work of oxygen exchange and waste pickup and disposal is performed in the muscles and organs, it returns to the heart via large veins, and the cycle begins anew. When Something Goes Wrong If a coronary artery becomes blocked or the flow of blood to the heart is otherwise interrupted, a heart attack results. Nearly one million people fall victim to heart attacks each year one every 33 seconds! The most common cause of arterial blockage is atherosclerosis, a formation of fatty substances, cholesterol, and other deposits in the lining of an artery. This build-up is called plaque, and several factors contribute to its formation, including elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure, and cigarette smoking, among others. These are believed to cause damage to the arterial walls, which is the start of atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis can be treated through cholesterol lowering drugs and other prescription medications, or, more effectively, through a diet rich in water-soluble fiber. Water-soluble fiber has been shown to reverse existing atherosclerosis and arterial wall damage by one-third or more, and to prevent further plaque development. Research Inhibition of Atherosclerosis by Dietary Pectin in Microswine With Sustained Hypercholesterolemia James J. Cerda, MD; Signurd J. Normann, MD, PhD; Michael P. Sullivan, MS; Charles W. Burgin; Frank L. Robbins, BS; Sohini Vathada, MD; Paisan Leelachaikul, MD Abstract "Sustained hypercholesterolemia is a known risk factor for development of atherosclerosis. In animal studies, grapefruit pectin fed concurrently with a high-lipid diet inhibits hypercholesterolemia and atherogenesis. The purpose of the present study was to determine if grapefruit pectin affects cholesterol levels and atherogenesis of animals with established hypercholesterolemia. Micro swine were fed an atherogenic diet to establish hypercholesterolemia. Plasma cholesterol levels rose rapidly and for 360 days were sustained at levels 6 to 12 fold the normal level. Then, half the micro swine, selected at random, were fed a diet in which 3% grapefruit pectin was substituted for cellulose, and the remaining animals received the original diet. Animals were killed 270 days later, and the extent of atherosclerosis was determined. In animals with established hypercholesterolemia, pectin did not lower their cholesterol levels. However, pectin reduced the extent of atherosclerosis in both the aorta and coronary arteries. The mean surface area covered by atherosclerosis in the aorta was 13.6% in the group that did not receive pectin compared with 5.3% in the group that did receive pectin. The mean coronary artery narrowing was 45% without pectin and 24% with pectin. We conclude that pectin may have a direct beneficial effect on atherosclerosis by a mechanism independent of cholesterol levels". (Circulation. 1994;89:1247-1253.) THE PECTIN-CHOLESTEROL CONNECTION - A REVIEW James J. Cerda, MD Division of Gastroenterology/Hepatology/Nutrition, University of Florida College of Medicine and the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Gainesville, FL USA "In vitro techniques have been developed to systematically study dietary grapefruit pectin. The effectiveness of grapefruit in lowering plasma cholesterol both in miniature swine and in human studies has been assessed. Recently the effects of grapefruit pectin on cholesterol levels and atherogenesis in animals with established hypercholesterolemia have been assessed. These studies strongly suggest that pectin may have a direct, beneficial effect on atherosclerosis by a mechanism independent of cholesterol levels. A protein-pectin-guar gum product has also been developed which is highly soluble in order to incorporate water soluble fibers into a variety of food products. Initial studies using the guinea pig model have been highly successful with over a 40% reduction in cholesterol over a six-week period. Therefore, it was concluded that grapefruit pectin and other food sources rich in soluble fibers are useful adjuvants in the treatment of patients with hypercholesterolemia. Enough evidence has accumulated to substantiate that one in four Americans has a cholesterol level that imparts an increased risk of premature coronary heart disease. Therefore, a broader application and a form of recommendations to include pectin-rich foods, pectin protein food supplements, and a prudent diet aimed at the primary prevention of atherosclerosis in the general public now seem justified".

Clinical Cardiology. 11. 589-594 (1988) Amino 2000 Amino 2000 is a high potency amino acid formula containing 2000 mg of pure, naturally occurring L-form amino acids per tablet scientifically proportioned to meet your nutritional needs. Athletes require greater protein intake than sedentary individuals in order to remain in positive nitrogen balance. Positive nitrogen balance is necessary to promote protein accretion and muscle growth. Amino 2000 derives its protein source from pancreatic digest of whey, a high quality protein with a high Protein Efficiency Ratio (P.E.R.) and a bioavailability rating higher than that of egg protein. Amino 2000 is prepared to ensure the highest potency, freshness and maximum nitrogen availability. Combine Amino 2000 with a complete diet and an intense training program for best results. Prolab Amino Gelcaps Amino Gelcap is the most easily utilized because its amino acids come from calcium caseinate. Its superior profile, combined with an absorption enhancing ingredient make this easy to swallow gelcap a popular choice among athletes. Each Amino Gelcap contains 1000 mg of amino acids. Prolab BCAA Plus BCAA Plus is a high potency formula containing the essential amino acids L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine, the three protein sparing amino acids known as branched chain. Many studies suggest that the BCAA's are the most important of all amino acids for muscular growth and recuperation. BCAA's are the most rapidly absorbed, in fact 70% of BCAA's immediately pass through the liver and are "pushed" into the muscle tissue where the majority of the metabolism takes place. Our BCAA formula also contains Vitamin C and B-6 for enhanced utilization. BCAA's are also a valuable tool for athletes during dieting. BCAA's lessen the catabolic (breaking down) effect in the muscle tissue, a benefit serious athletes simply cannot overlook.

Prolab CLA CLA is a naturally occurring free fatty acid that has been shown to improve nutrient usage and promote muscle tone. Prolab Creatine Monohydrate ATP resynthesis, Proven Muscular Power & Stamina Product Creatine is a natural substance found in the body that plays a very powerful role in energy metabolism. Oral supplementation of creatine monohydrate has been shown to increase the resynthesis of ATP (andenosine triphosphate) from ADP (andenosine diphosphate) during muscle contractions. ATP is the molecule the muscle cells burn during muscle contraction. When the energy is released from the ATP molecule it drops off a phosphate, thus becoming ADP. Creatine combines with a phosphate molecule forming a phosphocreatine molecule which delivers the phosphate to the ADP molecule reforming ATP. This resynthesized ATP molecule is then ready to be utilized for energy again. Because the body only stores an 8 - 12 second supply of ATP, it is very important to increase the creatine pool and maximize the ATP-ADP phosphate shuttle. The result is more explosive muscular contractions, increased stamina and endurance, greater intensity and less muscular fatigue which delivers more muscle size and strength. Prolab Nutrition's creatine monohydrate is produced in Germany in an ISO 9000 & 9001 certified factory. An ISO certification is the highest award a laboratory or factory can achieve. It surpasses the standards of OTC and even surpasses the strict standards of pharmaceutical manufacturing. Creatine Monohydrate is produced via a chemical synthesis route. The synthesis is done by reacting sarcosine sodium salt with cyanamide under heated conditions. Sarcosine sodium salt is a derivative of acetic acid. Cyanamide is an organic amide. When the process is complete, the sodium salt is rinsed away and the finished product is then redried. This critical step insures there is no residual sodium common to incomplete processing. Further information on specific processing conditions and equipment used in the manufacture of creatine monohydrate is considered proprietary and the process patent protected. The finished product then undergoes rigid testing for purity against a creatine monohydrate standard. Through a process called High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) the creatine is tested for its level of purity. Creatine monohydrate under this testing procedure will typically score as 99% pure creatine monohydrate. This purity test is the only test the majority of companies will conduct on their product. The finished product is further tested for impurities that would indicate product instability. The results of instability are product degradation and breakdown. Breakdown causes formation of impurities common to incomplete synthesis. Industrial grade raw materials to start the creatine monohydrate processing will also result in the formation and build-up of impurities with unknown, yet potentially harmful toxilogical properties. Our raw materials are pharmaceutical/food grade only. This grade is screened for impurities before processing begins. Simply stated, processing starts with the very best ingredients that yield the world's finest creatine monohydrate product. All manufacturing takes place in a state-of-the-art refinery through a patented process. Finished product is not only tested for purity, we also test for impurities. These steps insure that you are receiving the very best product on the market. This is a must have product for weight trainers and power athletes. A certificate of analysis is printed on each bottle.

Prolab Cyclo 4 Androdiol Elevating testosterone levels is the quickest route to an explosive muscle growth environment. Cyclo 4-Androdiol features the single most powerful testosterone precursor, 4-androstenediol. Its conversion to testosterone and its anabolic (muscle building) effects are extremely high. But it does not readily convert into estrogen. The result is maximum testosterone elevation. Gastrointestinal delivery (swallowing capsules) can be slow and inefficient. Absorption can take several hours and as much as 90% of the prohormone's potency may be eliminated or destroyed by the stomach acids. Cyclo 4-Androdiol features sublingual delivery (absorbing under the tongue), so the prohormone bypasses the stomach and goes directly into the bloodstream through the mucous membranes. Serum hormone levels begin to rise almost immediately. And because it's so fast, almost 100% of the prohormone's potency is absorbed every time - Like a testosterone pump on demand! Prolab EcdyVone Plasma and Extra Strength Capsules Lean Muscle Generator Build lean muscle mass Promotes strength gains Enhances protein synthesis Elevates Creatine and ATP Maximum Strength EcdyVoneTM capsules catapults over the competition by delivering the highest potency and purity Ecdysterone, plus two other synergistic anabolic accelerating compounds. This ultra potent formula features 200 milligrams of active Ecdysterones, 200 milligrams of Methoxyisoflavone and 50 milligrams of Ipriflavone. The result is a product that can help speed muscle growth, recovery and retain valuable muscle while dieting. Designed to maximize gains in lean mass and strength or achieve extreme levels of muscularity. Ecdyvone performs a trifecta: unprecedented increases in muscle mass, no banned substances combined with a non-hormonal mechanism to allow any and all serious athletes to use it without the need for cycling and dramatic decreases in body fat that are accelerated when combined with properly designed low-carb or stimulant based diets. EcdyVone Plasma... the latest breakthrough 'Pro Anabolic' product from Prolab designed to build lean muscle and strength. EcdyVone Plasma combines the protein synthesis properties of high dose Ecdysterone for building muscle and strength, with the anti-catabolic activities of Methoxy, and the lean mass building effects of Ipriflavone. With this combination the researchers at Prolab created a totally unique and powerful formula for maximizing muscle building and body changing effects. EcdyVone Plasma has a revolutionary new Soluble Liquid Assimilation Technology that suspends the active ingredients, eliminating the need to breakdown tablets or powders. Studies on the potent ingredients in EcdyVone Plasma show increases in creatine, Adenosine Tri Phospate (ATP) and increases oxygen carrying capacity promoting cellular energy and oxygen delivery for better workouts and recovery. EcdyVone Plasma is the highest dose Ecdysterone product on the market today. We all know building muscle isn't easy, with proper training, diet and EcdyVone Plasma your friends will be asking you, 'What the heck are you on?' Tell 'em you're on EcdyVonePlasma Prolab Glutamine Anti-Catabolic Muscular Support Amino Acid Powder Pure Glutamine Powder contains the "conditionally essential" amino acid L-Glutamine. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in muscle tissue and plays a key role in many bodily functions. During stressful situations (i.e. heavy resistive weight training) the body can lose a large amount of glutamine. A loss of glutamine during exercise may be a signal for protein catabolism (muscle breakdown). Glutamine supplementation has been shown to prevent the loss of body mass through the positive role glutamine plays in protein synthesis and its action as a potent anabolic agent. When muscle glutamine levels are restored and in a positive nitrogen balance muscle synthesis can return to a normal rate. Glutamine also has actions on glucose metabolism and the regulation of gluconeogenesis. Glutamine converts to glucose without changes in either insulin or glucagen, the hormones that regulate blood sugar. During dieting, and times of carbohydrate depletion, glutamine can exert positive effects on the amount of body fat loss as well as the retention of lean body mass. Each teaspoonful provides 4500 mg of L-Glutamine. Prolab GlycoGEN GlycoGEN represents a new generation in sports performance nutritional supplements. Specifically formulated for professional athletes, this product contains a synergistic matrix of macro glycogenic nutrients, micro intracellular ergogenic (energy producing) substrates, and electrolyte minerals. When used in conjunction with a training and diet program, GlycoGEN can power the elite athlete to new levels of performance by increasing energy production, power output, delaying fatigue and extending endurance. For the professional athlete this means... more speed, more power, more strength, more endurance for more productive performances! Muscle tissue has the capacity to store larger quantities of some specialized nutrients than would ordinarily be supplied by daily food sources. Upper levels of nutrient storage can typically be satisfied by an initial loading phase followed by a daily maintenance phase. For optimal results we recommend the following suggested use program. Suggested use: As a dietary supplement, mix 2 scoops (22g) with 8 oz. of water or juice. Loading phase: For the first 3 days, take 1 serving 30-45 minutes prior to exercise, 1 serving immediately following exercise, 1 serving in 4 oz. of water immediately prior to bedtime. Maintenance phase: Take 1 serving (22g) 45-60 minutes prior to workout. No need to take on off days. Repeat the loading phase every fourth week.

That's because it lacks the matrix of carbohydrate and protein required to feed your hungry muscles in a manner conducive to their rapid recovery and growth. This is being corrected with the next generation of MRPs, appropriately termed Matrix MRPs. This is a long overdue breakthrough in anabolic nutrition...but well worth the wait. You can actually feel Matrix MRPs working! Typical (last year's) MRPs are 'non-matrix': They deliver nutrients like protein and carbohydrate to your body in a relatively 'naked' form. This promotes their wastage (Reeds et al., 1992; Boirie et al., 1997) and conversion to body fat (Acheson et al., 1982). Matrix MRPs, by contrast, promote the rapid recovery and growth of your lean (e.g., muscle) tissue while effectively 'starving' your fat cells. Matrix Nutrient Delivery is Superior Human beings have been around for hundreds upon hundreds of thousands of years. For the bulk of that time, our bodies obtained nutrients from natural, whole foods. Many of these foods are no longer eaten, or available. Even if they were, most of us would choose to find something more convenient and economical to eat -such as an MRP. But your current non-matrix MRP lacks something these foods from our evolutionary past provided: Intact, biologically potent nutrients delivered in a complex matrix built of fiber and other structural elements. Non-matrix nutrients are quite new and foreign to your body; it cannot use them as effectively. Ironically, however, typical MRPs deliver nutrients in a 'naked', non-matrix form. Non-matrix carbohydrate and protein, for instance, get 'dumped' into your body more quickly than they can be turned into lean tissue (e.g., muscle glycogen, muscle protein). As noted earlier, they end up being wastefully oxidized ('burned') and converted into fat! Your body has the capacity to harness matrix-delivered nutrients to their fullest anabolic potential. For example, studies performed in the 1930s showed that sustained nutrient delivery, such as occurs with matrix-bound nutrition, is superior for enhancing lean tissue and minimizing body fat (Cuthbertson and Munro, 1939). We also know that this type of nutrient delivery is best for satisfying your appetite (i.e., curbing your desire to overeat)! You can feel Matrix MRPs working! In short, matrix MRPs promote maximum anabolism of lean tissue by mimicking the nutrient delivery systems that your body is best adapted for. Matrix MRPs, such as ProLab's Lean Matrix, are composed of low-glycemic carbohydrates, fibers, and intact, biologically potent proteins like micellar casein (Boirie et al., 1997). The Lean Matrix formula is designed to promote a more moderate, yet sustained delivery of carbohydrate, protein and other nutrients. Again, this makes for a superior -yet highly convenient and economical-way to chisel your body into a leaner, harder machine. Lean Matrix MRP Bodybuilders are the first adopters of the latest performance-enhancing supplements. Ancedotal reports from bodybuilders using experimental matrix MRPs indicate you can actually feel them working. Consider Lean Matrix, from ProLab. It's designed to gradually and specifically feed tissue growth factors to your tired, hungry muscles, effectively 'shunting' them away from fat tissue. Lean Matrix contains low-glycemic, matrix-bound carbohydrate and intact proteins (like micellar casein) that are matched to provide similar delivery profiles. It's no surprise you can literally feel Lean Matrix working just moments after consuming it. Stop using your body as a dumping zone for nutrients it can't properly harness. Make the switch to a Matrix MRP and start feeling and seeing results today!
