A herb that yields the stimulant Ephedra. See
This is a sugar alcohol that is used as a sweetener.
It has half the caloric value of sucrose because it is not completely
absorbed by the body.
A long chain of glucose molecules (carbohydrates)
that provides sustained energy without sharply increasing insulin
levels. Essentially a chain of molecules of the simple sugar glucose
linked together. There are an average of seven glucose molecules
linked together to form a maltodextrin molecule.
Needed for normal tendon and bone structure.
Mineral necessary for energy metabolism, protein
and fat synthesis, neuromuscular transmission, amonia scavenging
and binding of calcium to teeth, etc. Aids in bone growth, and
is necessary for proper functioning of nerves and muscles.
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT)
MCT's are technically fats, but they have very
unique properties. The difference between them and other fats
lies in their molecular structure. MCT's are shorter than other
fats, which allow them to be burned rather quickly by the body
for energy. MCT's enter the mitochondria, the powerhouse of a
cell, without assistance, and do not require the usual transport
MCT's are an attractive supplement because of
their calorie density. They have 9 calories per gram, like fats,
but lack the disposition to be stored as fat. All fats are not
created equal. Research shows that animals maintain a lower body
fat when they use MCT's in place of traditional fats. They can
help you increase lean muscle tissue, decrease excess body fat
and fuel precompetition workouts.
Hormone produced by the pineal gland that regulates
circadian rhythms; helps induce sleep and acts as an antioxidant.
A sulfur bearing essential amino acid important
in hair, nail and muscle production, liver maintenance (lipotropic
effects), and production of creatine and other aminos.
Also called 5-methyl-7-methoxyisoflavone. A
synthetic isoflavone that is highly anabolic, yet free of any
androgenic effects. It halts the muscle wasting, and increases
lean tissue growth. It increases calcium phosphorous, potassium
and nitrogen retention to a significant degree.
Inorganic substances necessary for good health
as an ingrediant or a catalyst.
A chelated mineral is generally attached to
a protein transporter molecule with the intent of improved transport
across the gut to the blood stream. Although some of the minerals
are well absorbed in this manner it does not necessarily always
indicative of the best form for absorption.
An essential fatty acid (EFA) that seems to
reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. This is considered
a type of 'good' fat. Olive oil, and canola oil have this in them.
You need approxiamately 2% of your daily calories as EFA's.
