Core Nutritionals: HARD Extreme Pineapple Strawberry
To be hard, you need to get HARD. It's that simple.
Core HARD is the pinnacle in recomposition supplementation. The ingredients in HARD have been specifically chosen to balance your hormonal environment and maximize your lean mass.
3 scoops per serving.
28 servings per container.
Your diet is impeccable and couldn’t be any more in check – macros, micros, you have it all down. Your workouts? Get out of here! You have slaved, grinded, and grunted your way through leg workouts so intense the gym staff cried – and those were on your worst days. And yet, something is missing.
It’s that “extra” level of shred, “that look.” You know exactly what we mean. That type of leanness and density that makes an arm look twice as big, a stomach look twice as lean, and a forearm look like a roadmap for the Italian countryside. It’s that kind of elusive hardness that’s so rare, most of us simply chalk it up to genetics, or luck, or steroids, or whatever excuse we have handy – and yet we all still want it.
The reality? It isn’t all that unattainable. Getting “that” look, “that” hardness, is about balance and recomposition. It’s a matter of adding in that final piece of the puzzle that makes the entire picture come out perfectly.
To be hard, you need to get HARD. It’s that simple.
Core HARD is another product in the Core Nutritionals’ lineup to follow the basic, but indispensable principles that Core Nutritionals is slowly making an industry standard: create products with effective ingredients, in effective doses, in a non-proprietary formula. This time around, we have applied those principles to the problem of softness that we all despise and have developed the most advanced ultra-hardening and recomposition agent on the market.
Taking advantage of both the old and the new, Core Nutritionals has employed both modern, cutting-edge compounds and traditional herbs to create a balanced approach to delivering hardness. Key ingredients in Core HARD affect some of the body’s critical physiological pathways, combining sexiness and science in a single, non-proprietary formula. We have included seven powerful ingredients into a full month's worth of stimulant free, recomposition goodness.
Withania somnifera Dunal, colloquially known as Winter Cherry or Indian Ginseng, is an herb that features prominently in the traditional Indian medicinal system of Ayurveda. Known as Ashwagandha in Ayurveda,Withania somniferais a critical ingredient in various Ayurvedic tonics and tinctures prepared as a traditional remedy for the treatment of various ailments.
Recently identified as a potent adaptogenic and target for therapeutic applications, Ashwaghanda has been the subject of numerous animal, pre-clinical, and clinical trials designed to examine its potential effects as an antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic, anxiolytic, antibacterial, antifungal, and immonumodulating compound. Ashwaghanda’s broad therapeutic potential is hypothesized to be the result of its robust phytochemical profile, including a wide swath of alkaloids, sitoindosides, and the highly biologically active withanolide group. As the principally biologically active compounds within Ashwaghanda, withanolides such as withanone, withaferine A, withanolides A, D, and G have been identified, isolated, and extensively studied in the various applications noted above.
In recognition of the potential physiological benefits of withanolides, Core Nutritionals selected KSM-66®to include in its HARD formula. KSM-66®is a full-spectrum Ashwaghanda extract, standardized for 5% withanolides – meaning that KSM-66®not only includes the full range of biologically active compounds within Ashwaghanda, but also that it contains the highest currently available concentration of the principally active withanolides (5%).
The high concentrations of withanolides within KSM-66® has resulted in encouraging results in a number of human, clinical trials – particularly considering many of these trials were conducted using the methodological gold standard of randomization, double-blind delivery, and placebo control. Amongst the most impressive results contained in these trials:
A 27.9% reduction in serum cortisol levels, measured over 60 days in a trial featuring 64 chronically stressed adults.
Statistically significant increases to endurance and stamina, as measured by VO2max, in a clinical trial featuring 50 healthy, exercise-trained adults.
Increased measures of well-being as reported by self-assessment scales, included in both the clinical trials mentioned above.
Statistically significant increases in serum testosterone levels in a clinical trial featuring 68 infertile men.
Though each of these results is impressive, perhaps the most significant is the 27.9% reduction in cortisol seen in the 60 day trial. As detailed above, cortisol possesses a multitude of potentially degradative physiological effects, including: inhibiting glucose uptake, causing a constriction of the vasculature (vasoconstriction), the breakdown of glycogen, and inarguably the result most would desire to avoid, proteolysis (the breakdown of muscle tissue).
Phosphatidylserine, colloquially known as PS, is a nearly ubiquitous phospholipid found in various membranous tissues throughout the body. PS’s ubiquity coincides with its necessity for crucial physiological functions, as the phospholipid is implicated in several components of cell communication, as well as the mediation of catecholamine synthesis and transmission in the brain (along with other neuroendocrine functions). In a fitness-related context, a nascent but growing body of methodologically-sound research suggests that PS may play a role in increasing exercise capacity.
Studies administering the compound in both acute and chronic fashion suggest that PS has a measurable effect on exercise capacity. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized trial involving 16 trained athletes, phosphatidylserine was administered for 10 days prior to an acute exercise challenge. Exercise markers such as exercise time to exhaustion, sprint performance, and ratings of perceived exertion, were measured post-exercise. The authors found that exercise time to exhaustion was significantly altered. Related studies using similar serving sizes have found that chronic PS administration increased shot accuracy in golfers, increased exercise time to exhaustion by 28% in cyclists, and reduced subjective feelings of stress and soreness in others.
Overall, phosphatidylserine appears to play a valuable role in the increase in exercise capacity. PS may therefore play a critical role in the continued exercise success of bodybuilders in a, “cutting” or recomposition stage.
Pomegranate is a fruit-bearing deciduous shrub, endemic to and cultivated in wide swaths of both Europe and Asia. Pomegranate is also the predominant member of two species comprising the Punicaceae family
Pomegranate fruit has long been consumed as a dietary staple, and recent research has uncovered that the peel, in particular, harbors a broad range of physiologically active compounds known as polyphenols – most prominently ellagitannins. When consumed, these ellagitannins are hydrolyzed to ellagic acid in the gut, and released into the blood, allowing ellagic acid to be widely distributed to many target tissues and organs.
While still preliminary, emerging animal and in vitro data on PME (pomegranate extract) suggests that both specific and whole plant extracts may exert interesting endocrine effects. In a study examining the effects of PME on cultured human cells, PME was shown to down-regulate estrogen-receptor gene expression, and inhibit binding – suggesting that PME may possess some anti-estrogenic effects, at least in vitro. In another study in rats, PME’s robust antioxidant profile was hypothesized to increase androgenic activity via reducing oxygen radicals in the testes.
Though PME lacks robust human data, the available literature suggests that this compound may possess some highly useful physiological effects.
White Button Mushroom Extract (Agaricus blazei) (fruit) (30% polysaccharides)
Agaricus blazei, known commonly by a plethora of names – including button mushroom, white button mushroom, table mushroom, and champignon mushroom – is a small, edible mushroom endemic to North America and Europe. The most commonly consumed mushroom on the planet, commercial production and consumption of white button mushroom has existed since at least the early 18thcentury, while indigenous oral records suggest the plant was consumed for centuries prior.
Recent medical research has discovered that white button mushroom is a rich source of biologically-active compounds, including ergothioneine, an antioxidant with particularly potent free radical scavenging activity. Similar research has found that white button mushrooms – along with other varieties – possess unsaturated fatty acids such as linoleic acid, linolenic acid, and conjugated linoleic acid that may exert inhibitory activity on human aromatase, a cytochrome-P450 complex responsible for the conversion of testosterone into estrogen.
In two separate studies by similar researchers, both rats and human cell lines were fed and/or incubated with various extract strengths and doses of white button mushroom extract. Both the animal experiments and “in-cell” aromatase assays demonstrated that WBME exerted powerful anti-aromatase effects, reducing total aromatase amounts and activity across all experimental conditions.
The most encouraging aspect of these studies is the servings of white button mushroom used in the experimental conditions: they are easily achievable through oral consumption, unlike many other plant-based, physiologically active compounds.
Though the literature surrounding L-theanine is still emerging, the amino acid is slowly building a reputation as one of the most interesting and exciting compounds being targeted for therapeutic use. L-theanine is an amino acid found almost exclusively in tea, constituting approximately 1-2% of the dry weight of tea – resulting in a 25–60 mg theanine load per 200 ml serving of liquid tea.
First identified in green tea and in the mushroomXerocomus badius, L-theanine readily crosses the blood-brain barrier in a dose-dependent manner, and it is thought to inﬂuence the central nervous system (CNS) through a variety of mechanisms, including:
Inhibiting glutamate reuptake and blockade of glutamate receptors in the hippocampus.
Increasing gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA – a neurotransmitter associated with the regulation of responses) concentrations.
In addition to these more well-demonstrated effects, emerging electroencephalography trials on theanine suggest that the amino acid may exert a positive effect on alpha waves – a type of brain wave implicated in restful relaxation. Alpha activity has also been associated with increased creativity, increased performance under stress, and improved learning and concentration, as well as decreased anxiety.
What we typically refer to as “Estrogen,” is in fact a group of three biologically distinct hormones – estradiol (E2), estrone (E1), and estriol (E3), each possessing different activities in different cell, tissue, and receptor types. When experts refer to either the benefits or downfalls of “estrogen," they really mean to identifya specificestrogen.
Thesespecific estrogens, in turn, metabolize into even more specific estrogen sub-compounds, such as the 2-hydroxyestrogens (2-OHE’s), 2-methoxyestrogens, 16a-hydroxyestrone (16-OHE1), and 4-hydroxyestrogens (4-OHE’s). As their parent estrogens, these estrogen metabolites exert different effects depending upon the tissue and cell one is examining. In fact, two estrogen metabolites in particular, 16-OHE1 and 2-OHE, have such contrasting cellular activities that 2-OHE is anestrogen antagonist.Yes, that is correct: there is an anti-estrogen, estrogen.
In recent years, so-called phytonutrients have become the focus of clinical research, as these natural compounds have shown the ability to modulate the body’s estrogen ratio. One of these phytonutrients, is a dietary indole known as indole-3-carbinol (I3C). Unfortunately, despite its metabolic usefulness, I3C is highly molecularly unstable, and therefore unsuitable for use as a therapeutic agent or dietary supplement.
N-Coumaroyldopamine is a natural analogue to the phytochemical N-Caffeoyldopamine, itself found prominently in various plants, including cocoa (Theobroma cacao L.). N-Coumaroyldopamine, its parent compounds, and other analogs that derive from its parent compound, have recently been the subject of phytochemical analyses due to their chemical similarity to sympathomimetic amines known to couple to the beta-2-adrenergic receptor.
Phytochemical analyses were subsequently designed to assess the potency of N-Coumaroyldopamine and N-Caffeoyldopamine as beta-2-adrenergic receptor agonists – or, in simpler terms, their ability to “turn on” the fabled beta-2-adrenergic receptor. In these trials, the phytochemicals were shown to be as potent as several well-known beta-2-adrenergic receptor agonists (salbutamol, procaterol, and fenoterol). You read that correctly: N-Coumaroyldopamine and N-Caffeoyldopamine were found to bind as tightly to the beta-2-adrenergic receptor as well known synthetic compounds!
The desirability of activating the beta-2-adrenergic receptor arises due to the critical role that beta-2-adrenertic receptors play in both skeletal muscle and adipose metabolic function. In particular, beta-2-adrenergic receptors have been shown to induce dilation in the vasculature (vasodilation – the process involved in a “pump”), increase oxygen uptake and nutrient transport to skeletal muscle, regulate thermogenesis (the production of body heat), inhibit the pro-adipogenic effects of other adrenergic receptor types, as well as directly increase lipolysis and the oxidation of fatty acids.
Beta-2-adrenergic receptors achieve these effects via one of the body’s key chemical messengers, known as cAMP (cyclic adenosine monophosphate). cAMP works as a sort of cell-type translator and foreman: it receives an input from, say, a receptor such as the beta-2-adrenergic receptor, and then communicates and directs the types of cells that the beta-2-adrenergic receptor would like to target.
Just within the context of beta-2-adrenergic agonism, this amounts to cAMP increasing resting metabolic rate and caloric expenditure (the amount of calories you burn), improving peripheral sensitivity to glucose and glucose utilization, reduction of gluconeogenesis, induction of AMPk (adenosine monophosphate kinase) release, triggering of lipolysis, the inhibition of lipogenesis, and vasodilation.
Or, in other words, cAMP is involved in nearly every beneficial physiological process that a lifter, runner, hiker, jumper, runner, tumbler, and fumbler would want. cAMP is involved in:
Increasing bloodflow (“pump”).
Reducing muscle protein usage (catabolism).
To say that cAMP is a desirable compound to increase the release of – which activating the beta-2-adrenergic receptor does – would qualify as the understatement of the year!
Luckily, however, I3C readily metabolizes into the secondary indole 3,3’ diindolylmethane, or DIM for short. When used in a supplemental fashion in clinical trials, DIM appears to possess all the positive effects of its parent compound.
DIM also exerts its own direct physiological effects, including:
Adjusting the activity of certain cytochrome enzymes, reducing the activity at the estrogen receptor site.
Limit the cell division and growth of certain estrogens.
Despite the bodybuilding community’s single-minded crusade to eliminate estrogen wherever it lie in wait, compounds such as DIM show us that estrogen is averydiverse set of compounds – and that we should actively pursue increasing certain estrogens that have beneficial, and ironically, anti-estrogenic effects.

The Core Nutritionals: HARD Extreme Pineapple Strawberry is evocative, to say the least, but that's why you're drawn to it in the first place.
17a-ANDRO is a must-have in any stack for men seeking maximum gains in strength and size. 17a-ANDRO is designed dramatically increase appetite, lower estrogen, suppress DHT conversion while repairing muscle and aiding in the mobility of joints. Extreme muscle fullness and well-lubricated joints are vital for users seeking extreme gains by moving heavy amounts of weight. 17a-ANDRO is the core product in all STEEL ANDRO cycles.
LIPOSOMAL ENCAPSULATION TECHNOLOGY All of our ANDROS incorporate LIPOSOMAL TECHNOLOGY to increase the bioavailability/potency of ingredients. Liposomal technology takes the active ingredients and encapsulates them in lipids (fats) to improve absorption and uptake into the body. This patented process enables 17a-ANDRO to bypass stomach acids and allows for maximum absorption into the cells. The big knock against most anabolic agents is that they aren’t highly bioavailable in the body, DHEA pre-cursors included.
Liposomal technology allows for maximum effects by the human body when administered orally. Liposomal technology is not cheap, nor is the equipment. This is why you’ll rarely see it coming from a company who sells anabolics. Most companies who sell these kinds of supplements are selling a product of extremely poor quality.
*Due to the sensitive and highly limited ingredients used in the STEEL products, for customer safety, we do not accept returns as returned items cannot be restocked. Please carefully consider this before your purchase.
17a-ol(1,4 OHP) 37.5mg
rhaponticum carthomoides 250mg
Q.: Suggested use - How do I take 17a
A.: Take 1 tablet when you wake up, repeat this 10 hours later. Do this everyday for the entire cycle. Wait 30 minutes before eating after taking the Andro.
Q.: Can you stack all three of the new Andros?
A.: Yes! They make a perfect stack for cutting fat and drying out while also making lean strength gains.
Q.: How do I take multiple Andros at the same time?
A.: Easy, when you wake up take one tablet of each Andro, about 10 hours later repeat this. Do this everyday for the entire cycle.
Q.: Does 17a require liver support or on cycle therapy?
A.: Neither is required. Only thing required is Alpha, after completing a cycle.
Q.: How long can I cycle 17a?
A.: 4 to 8 weeks, upon completion start the Alpha.
Q.: What do I do if I forget to take a dose?
A.: Do not double up, just take 17A Andro when you can, and gradually get back to your initial regimen.
Q.: Can I drink alcohol on 17a?
A.: We do not advise drinking alcohol on Andros, mainly because when we consume alcohol we suppress testosterone and the conversion of the Andros into testosterone.
Q.: Can 17a be combined with other Steel products like Shredded?
A.: 17A Andro can be safely taken with ALL Steel products.
Q.: How long do I have to come off of 17a before getting back on Andros?
A.: Upon completion of Alpha as post cycle therapy you can go back on for another cycle.
Q.: Can women take 17a?
Q.: How old must I be to take 17a?
A.: You must be at least 18 years old. However, we do advise people under the age of 21 to stick to effective mass builders such as Pumped and ADABOLIC.
Q.: Does it matter if I take them with food?
A.: You should wait 30 minutes before eating, you have slightly better absorption of the Andros on a empty stomach, but they still are effective even when taken with a small meal.
Q.: What is good to stack with 17a?
A.: Most important is ADABOLIC, ADABOLIC has the necessary nutrients your body requires to put on the most mass in the shortest time possible. We also strongly recommend RESTED, RESTED increases the conversion rate of testosterone in the body and greatly boosts GH levels and recovery.
Q.: What are the side effects of 17a?
A.: The side effects range from person to person. Genetics, lifestyle, eating habits and other variables all contribute to the side effects or lack of side effects users experience. For most, Alpha is perfect for restoring the hormonal balance of the body and ensuring the user keeps the majority of their new muscle gains.
Q.: In short, what is the difference between all of the Andros?
-1-Andro is for lean gains -3-Epi is for lean gains with an added boost to libido and fat burning due to better fat metabolization -7,3 is for lean gains, with an added boost to fat burning due to estrogen suppression. It's also the Andro that will least affect your natural testosterone levels -4-Andro is for more mass and strength-17A-Andro is for lean mass and strength with increased appetite, joint repair and slight estrogen conversion -19 Nor is for more bulk and power
The Steel Supplements: 17a-Andro is far and away, one of our most popular items. People can't seem to get enough of it.

Olympus Labs : TEST1FY
Your diet is perfect and you push yourself in the gym but it only takes you so far. Your progress is ultimately hindered by genetics and you begin to experience diminishing results, an occurrence often referred to as a “plateau”. In an act of desperation, you turn to the latest “innovative“ supplement that claims incredible increases in strength and size. A “game changer“ they say and they have the data to prove it too…awesome right?
You take the bait and are deceived by these unscrupulous companies. Their claims are predominantly based on mice and rat studies. But, you are not a rodent are you? How does the mice data translate to a human that wants to tear it up in the gym?
Enter TEST1FY. The DemiGods at Olympus Labs have developed a testosterone boosting supplement that sets the standard for what a test booster should be, at a value that you have come to expect from Olympus Labs!. TEST1FY was specifically designed for athletes who are looking to make the transformation from a mere mortal into a DemiGod. TEST1FY provides that opportunity and truly differentiates itself from all the “bogus“ test boosters on the market. No trickery here, Olympus Labs uses trusted ingredients that are supported with human data. Furthermore, we selected the dosage of each ingredient based on clinical studies to provide ”real world” results.
There are no supplements that are even in the same realm as TEST1FY. Eight fully dosed and potent ingredients in one test boosting formula, are you kidding me? Olympus Labs has become known for only using the highest potency extracts and patented ingredients that are backed by clinical studies and third party verification, TEST1FY is no different. As always, Olympus Labs provides the consumer with exceptional value. That means TEST1FY will be competitively priced with products which are clearly inferior.
TEST1FY hits multiple pathways to increase free and total free testosterone, luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). To counter the subsequent rise in estrogen from the potent test boosting ingredients, we have included a proven aromatase inhibitor. To top it all off, we added a matrix specifically designed to maintain a healthy balance in the body. Yes, this is all in one product.
Do not waste your time and hard earned money on the typical test boosting supplements which use a proprietary blend of 2-3 ingredients. Do not settle for mediocrity, TEST1FY combines the elements of value and quality that you will not find elsewhere. TEST1FY delivers all aspects of what a “real” test booster should provide … it is the new BOSS!
Test1fy features many potent ingredients including 3200mg of Anacyclus Pyrethrum, 675mg of KSM-66® Ashwagandha Root and 3,332IU of vitamin D3 which will boost libido as well as free and total test among its many other health benefits.

Evogen : EVP AQ - PREMIUM LIQUID MUSCLE VOLUMIZER
WHEN THE REST OF THE INDUSTRY WAS LOOKING AT POWDERED GLYCEROL, EVOGEN LOOKED AT PURE LIQUID GYLCEROL.
It’s easy to be like everyone else and quite honestly, the sports nutrition industry is guilty of this. One brand uses an ingredient, hypes it, then others come on board. Round and round we go. Not Evogen. The reason being, CEO and 19x Olympia winning coach Hany “The Pro Creator” Rambod doesn’t create products just like everyone else. Evogen is known for innovation and doing what’s best for athletes since its inception in 2008.
So what’s wrong with powdered glycerol? There is nothing wrong with glycerol itself, but to make a powder, it’s combined with an ingredient called silica. Fundamentally this is where companies go wrong because this approach severely limits the amount of glycerol you can fit into a product serving. Some silica is ok, too much causes chalkiness and potential GI issues. To get the true hyperhydration effects pure glycerol is clinically proven to create, you need over 10x the amount found in most powdered glycerol products. This is based on REAL research and pretty much all the brands using powdered glycerol ignore this except for Evogen Nutrition.
EXTREME RESULTS REQUIRE EXTREME INGREDIENTS WITH EFFECTIVE DOSES
PURE GLYCEROL (as GLYCOSPAN™)–Evogen’s Glycospan glycerol is derived from pure plant sources and is free of any excessive silica. At clinical dosages it can not only help elicit hyperhydration that causes enhanced hyperemia (blood volume), but it can also help increase endurance levels. The pumps it helps induce are unrivaled.
S7™ NITRIX OXIDE BLEND (GREEN COFFEE BEAN EXTRACT, GREEN TEA EXTRACT, TURMERIC EXTRACT, TART CHERRY, BLUEBERRY, BROCCOLI, KALE)–S7is a low dose blend of seven (7) plant-based ingredients that has been clinically shown to increase nitric oxide (NO) by 230%. Your body already produces nitric oxide which acts as a vasodilator, signaling the blood vessels to relax, thus increasing blood flow. S7 aids an athlete like you, by delivering more oxygen, fuel, and other key nutrients to exercising muscles during workouts by increasing nitric oxide.
BETAINE ANHYDROUS–When it comes to enhancing water and muscle volume, betaine is a tried and true volumizing agent. It strengthens the foundation of the EVP-AQ formula because beyond its synergistic effects with glycerol, it’s used in a clinical dose to increase power output and your ability to maintain anaerobic capacity. Quite simply it allows you to lift heavier weights for longer.
INNOVATION FOR EXTREME PHYSIQUE RESULTS BUILT BY A CHAMPION COACH
Lucky for you, Hany has yielded to the demands of the dedicated customers of Evogen Nutrition, and released his Pro Creator quality tool to get you in an EXTREME mindset to train. Team Evogen has already embraced what it takes to be extreme as far as training and supplementation, and it’s proven in the quality of our athletes and their physiques. If you want to be amongst the elite, it’s up to you to take the next step and BE EXTREME!

Blackstone Labs: CHOSEN1
The problem with conventional bulking is that in your effort to increase size and strength, you’re all but guaranteed to increase body fat too. Some of the genetically gifted out there might put on less fat than others, but the fact remains if you want to build more muscle, you’re stuck with added fat..
Not anymore. Now you have the choice to build as much lean mass as you want, without the added fat, with Chosen1. This revolutionary muscle building supplement is for the aggressive athlete looking to maximize lean gains but minimize fat gain. Chosen1 harnesses the power of 1-DHEA, a compound proven to boost size, strength, and aggression.
How to use?
As a dietary supplement, take one (1) tablet two (2) times per day. Do not exceed two (2) tablets daily.
1-DHEA Blend (65mg) Chosen1 contains THREE potent forms of 1-DHEA (1 androstene-3b-ol,17-one, which provide sustained release all day long. This ensures you have elevated levels of this powerful muscle builder throughout the day. 1-DHEA undergoes a 2-step conversion process, first converting to 1-Androstenediol then converting to 1-testosterone, a powerful derivative of testosterone. The advantages to using 1-DHEA over any other muscle building supplement is that it does NOT aromatize to estrogen and touts an anabolic:androgenic ratio of 1:2, meaning drier gains, little fat accumulation, more aggression in the gym, and better performance in the bedroom! Chosen1 employs Liposomal delivery to yield a 1-DHEA supplement that’s 99% bioavailable, ensuring this powerful anabolic survives the tortuous journey through the GI system, hitting your muscles with maximum effectiveness. Increased size, decreased body fat, and better performance make the Chosen1 an easy choice!
The Blackstone Labs: CHOSEN1 is the yin, to your yang. You've found what you're looking for.

Blackstone Labs: EpiCat 60 caps
Several factors impact your ability to grow muscle. Most of those you can control (diet, exercise, recovery), but the biggest factor governing your ability to build massive muscles (your genetics) you have no control over...until now!
EpiCat is a revolutionary all-natural muscle building supplement that flips the genetic switch, enabling you to become the physical freak that nature never intended. EpiCat isn’t a steroid, prohormone, or some other research chemical. It utilizes extracts isolated from dark chocolate and green tea to boost your anabolic potential and transform it a tower of strength and power!
How to use?
As a dietary supplement, take one (1) capsule two (2) times daily with food. Do not exceed two (2) capsules daily.
Green Tea (700mg) enhances thermogenesis, metabolism, and fat oxidation resulting in greater fat burning during exercise and at rest. Green tea is packed with powerful antioxidants that combat oxidative stress and promote overall health and recovery from exercise.
Epicatechin (300mg) significantly aids muscle growth by inhibiting myostatin, a protein present in your muscles cells that limits growth and differentiation. Research shows that epicatechin stimulates release of follistatin, another protein that blocks the actions of myostatin, leading to increased exercise capacity, strength, and muscle growth.
The Blackstone Labs: EpiCat 60 caps is the product you didn't think you need, but once you have it, something you won't want to live without.
