The Muscle-Up is great for high-intensity weight training. It has 100mg of caffeine to provide an energy boost, while L-carnitine and raspberry ketones turn fat cells to energy. The Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) help to prevent muscle tearing, promote muscle growth, and speed recovery times.
The Hydrate has the same BCAA benefits of the Muscle- Up, but without the caffeine. It is also vegan because it’s made with vegetable based ingredients. Instead of focusing on weight loss, the Hydrate has electrolytes to replenish positive ions like Sodium, Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium. It has 7g of BCAA per 9.2g serving, which is one of the best BCAA ratios on the market to help you reach your fitness goals faster.
BCAAs are interesting because they are metabolized in your muscles, rather than your liver. This means that BCAAs, without requiring much digestion or “treatment”, can be relied upon as an actual energy source during exercise and could thus avoid premature muscle rupture. They help your muscular endurance, prevent muscular degeneration, increase the absorption of protein ingested after training and refuel the energy in the muscle.
Fired-Up is a pre-training formula designed specifically for high intensity training. With 200mg of caffeine, this formula gives a good dose of energy without heart palpitations. The addition of beta-alanine, which serves to increase the lactic acid threshold, combined with L-Citrulline to optimize oxygen supply to the muscle, Fired-Up is a pre-training formula perfect to surpass yourself during any type of training.
Unlike the WHEY protein, the Isolate protein goes through a filtration process, which gives it a higher percentage of purity than the WHEY. This filtration process ensures that it contains less lactose which decreases the amount of carbohydrates. In addition, the Isolate protein has fewer grams of fat per serving due to its increased purity, hence making it more absorbable. Both protein formulas have their benefits and are high quality. The Isolate remains a product of higher quality than the Whey since it is more pure.
Due to the high percentage of purity of our high quality protein, it is digested much more easily than a medium or low quality protein. Moreover, adding no unnecessary ingredients also promotes digestion. Finally, lactase, which is a digestive enzyme promoting the digestion of lactose, has been added to our formulas in order to avoid bloating and aid in digestion.
The Slimmer is a healthy supplement that promotes fat loss but is not a fat burner. A fat burner is mostly a pill of ephedrine and caffeine that speeds up the metabolism and as soon as consumption is stopped, water retention is created and the lost weight is immediately regained. The Slimmer uses 3 different ways to lose fat without causing water retention.
The Slimmer uses 3 different ways to promote fat loss without causing water retention.
First, the ingredients L-Carnitine and raspberry ketones mobilize fat cells to transform them into energy. We are really targeting the adipose cells with the Slimmer. Secondly, garcinia cambogia, which is a small Asian fruit, helps control appetite. We will feel fuller faster, and the cravings for sweet and salty late in the evening are mitigated. Finally, since the product is made from green tea extracts, green coffee seeds and caffeine, this accelerates the metabolism in order to burn fat more quickly and burn continuously, even when the system is at rest. By calculating the caffeine found in the green tea, and green coffee beans, one obtains 174mg of caffeine per portion of Slimmer. This is roughly equivalent to a large cup of coffee.
Preferably in the morning or early afternoon. It is suggested to replace one of the coffees or energy drinks in the day with a portion of Slimmer. It is an excellent natural product that gives a small energy boost due to its light caffeine content, the Slimmer is the perfect product to help lose a little extra fat.
In order to consume enough Omega-3 in a day, fish, nuts, seeds and specific oils should be eaten each day and in every meal to reach the recommended minimums. For an average active person, it is recommended to consume a minimum of 500 to 800mg of EPA / DHA to maintain good health.
Several studies show that a minimum of 2 grams per day of EPA / DHA helps the body decrease its triglyceride levels in the blood. This has the effect of reducing inflammation and promoting weight loss.
Vitamin D is a supplement that helps the absorption of calcium and helps to keep it in the bones. It also helps the immune system, the cardiovascular system and the cognitive functions. In addition to being absorbed easier in the presence of a fatty substance like Omega-3, it requires magnesium to be transformed into its active form in order to be useful. Magnesium helps with nerve transmissions, muscle contractions, relaxing the nervous system and promoting the metabolism of lipids and sugars. Lipid metabolism refers to the chemical processes through which the body is able to degrade and assimilate fat. Finally, the vitamin B6 found in the formula assists in the assimilation of magnesium as well as zinc contained in Magnesium +. In addition, Vitamin B6 combines with the Omega-3 to combat the fatty inflammation of the body.
Several magnesium supplements on the market are of poor quality, this gives a laxative effect since these types of magnesium have low absorption rates. In order to avoid this undesirable effect, 5star4mula uses magnesium bisglycinate. This type of magnesium is of very high quality and has one of the best absorption rates among the different types of magnesium that you can find on the market.
Magnesium + is a very interesting formula to increase the quality of sleep. The vitamin B6 in the formula improves the absorption of magnesium whose main purpose is to relax the nervous system. This formula allows you to get a deeper sleep and fall asleep quicker.
Health Canada recommends consuming magnesium 30 to 45 minutes before bedtime. It can also be consumed at the end of a training session to calm the nervous system. Splitting the daily dose between post-workout and before bed is another option.
North America is one of the regions of the Earth with the least exposure to the sun. Even in summer, the dose of Vitamin D received due to exposure to the sun is much lower than the average of other countries. Several studies show a lot of benefits with vitamin-D supplementation. It is recommended to consume between 5000 and 6000ui per day in winter while 3000 to 5000ui per day is recommended in summer.
CREAtion is a formula with 4 types of creatine. Using creatines that are much more soluble in water than monohydrate creatine alone allows the formula to absorb more easily and the body uses less water in order to transport the molecules to the muscles
CREAtion can be consumed according to recommended doses without cycling.
5star4mula has always offered high quality supplements that differentiate themselves from others. This is why we use 4 types of creatine with different absorption rates. In addition, the active black pepper extract maximizes the transport of molecules to the muscles. Finally, HMB calcium is added to the formula to reduce muscle fiber damage caused by resistance training.
