This week Scott Welch of Muscle Insider presented Nutrabolics Vice President Jayson Wyner with Canadian Supplement Award trophies for Best Post-Workout Supplement and Carb Supplement of the Year. The awards were announced at the 2012 Arnold competition and trade-show last month.
Best Post-Workout Supplement: Anabolic Window
Sport nutritionists have known for years that macronutrients like proteins and carbs are needed within 30 minutes before and after training to maximize muscle tissue repair and glycogen replenishment. Because of the positive effect proper nourishment during these time periods can have on your body’s anabolic processes, they have been termed: “anabolic windows of opportunity”. During these 30 pre and post-workout minutes, the metabolic machinery in your body is primed to absorb the nutrients needed to grow muscle tissues and to help prevent muscle-degenerating catabolic processes. Ensuring that you have a well timed, quality supply of healthy protein, carbs, and amino acids can make or break your results in the gym. Here’s where Anabolic Window™ comes in.
Anabolic Window™ is a growth and recovery matrix engineered to maximize your pre and post-workout opportunities for enhanced anabolism and nutrient receptivity. This award-winning blend contains fast-absorbing carbs, premium triple-isolate protein, and a matrix of amino acids, so you can help ensure that you have a surplus of critical muscle building pre-cursors heading in to your workout, and that you are optimizing your repair and growth coming out. Our brand new formula tastes even better and is now packing a massive 43 grams of high-quality whey protein per serving!
Carb Supplement of the Year: Waxybolic
Whether your benching five plates a side, squatting 3 plates for 20 or running down the rack curls till your arms explode, your body needs carbs to fuel your workout. Don’t take enough in or don’t take the right carbs and you’ll be hitting a wall on your sixth rep no doubt. Carbohydrates provide your muscles with the high energy needed to smash through every set of every workout and replenish your muscles from the battle you put them through. But it’s not enough to just chomp down a bunch of sugar, bread, oatmeal or pasta and hope everything’s gonna work itself out. No way!
How Glycogen Is Formed
To understand why WAXYBOLIC is the best carbohydrate supplement in existence, you must first understand what glycogen is and how it’s made. Your body stores carbohydrates in your muscle and liver cells in a form physiologists call glycogen. This sits dormant waiting to be used. But your body can’t manufacture all this glycogen at one time. It’s made slowly and steadily throughout the day as you take in more and more carbohydrates or gluconeogenic amino acids. Since the machinery that makes glycogen moves at a slow but even pace, you need to eat throughout the day in small, frequent feedings to optimize the process. You also need to eat fast absorbing carbs to kick the process into motion, followed by slow digesting carbohydrates to keep the process going. This “fast” then “steady” feeding is the key to maximizing the glycogen building process. That’s where WAXYBOLIC™comes in. This advanced carbohydrate matrix combines the sustained energy of complex carbohydrates with the rapid absorption of simple sugars, without bloating or a rapid rise and fall of insulin levels.
Post Workout Recovery
After the heavy weights are thrown down, it’s time to repair and build your glycogen stores back up. This is the crucial recovery stage. The rapid absorption of WAXYBOLIC™allows you to begin this recovery process sooner and more effectively.
WAXYBOLIC™also does not interfere with other post-workout supplements; it compliments them. Each serving helps you transport amino acids, creatine, protein, vitamins, minerals and various micronutrients to where they’re needed most – your muscles!
