MAX MUSCLE'S NEW CORE 4
By: Jennifer Lee
Max Muscle's foundation for health and fitness starts with the vital nutrients that make up the Core 4 – now featuring NEW products!
If you’re a Max Muscle customer already using the Core 4, we’ve got good news for you. The best products – well, they just keep getting better and better. This past year we expanded our core four line by introducing Vit-Acell Energy and Essential Omega, two products quickly becoming staples in our customers’ lives. Max Pro, Max Muscle’s best selling protein supplement for more than 20 years, is now available in new flavors. And GlutaMatrix – yes, it’s still the best choice available for quick delivery and absorption of glutamine by your body.
Our passion at Max Muscle is to improve the health and fitness of each one of our customers. We are committed to providing only the best nutritional supplements, but we don’t stop there. We provide the education necessary for our customers to maximize their health with the understanding of how and why to use our nutrition supplements, hence the Core 4. Would you like to meet someone who has an unbreakable health and fitness program? A great body? A body that performs? Get to know a Max Muscle customer who understands and follows the principles of Max Muscle’s own Core 4 program.
The Core 4 is the basis for any sound nutritional program. It includes daily focus on vitamin and mineral supplementation, essential fatty acids, consuming the right type and quantity of protein, and re-fueling your muscles with glutamine, an amino acid. The Core 4 will help to balance your hormones, provide you with energy, encourage healthy eating habits, improve cardiovascular health, optimize recovery and immunity and ultimately provide a sense of well-being and happiness.
Consuming enough protein each day can be the difference between getting results and not. Max Pro is comprised of a blend of whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate and casein protein. Whey protein is an excellent source of glutamine, glycine and the branched-chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine. Whey protein transits the stomach quickly for fast absorption by the intestines, making it ideal to consume post-exercise to speed recovery. Rich amounts of glutathione, a powerful antioxidant, are contained in whey protein. Glutathione is involved heavily in metabolic detoxification and levels of glutathione have been shown to decrease with exercise. Peptides from whey protein have also shown to enhance the activity of our immune system.
Recently, whey protein has received attention for being effective in weight loss and reducing body fat. A newly published research study had this to say about whey: “Healthy, overweight and obese individuals participated in the double-blind, randomized clinical trial ingesting a whey protein shake twice daily for 23 weeks. Participants were provided no dietary advice and continued to consume their free-choice diets throughout the study period. At the end of the 23 weeks, subjects in the whey protein group lost statistically significantly more body weight, fat free mass and waist circumference compared to the other groups consuming a similar soy protein or an isoenergetic amount of carbohydrate (placebo).”
Casein protein comprises 80 percent of the protein found in milk and does not clear the stomach as fast as whey protein. It is a slower digesting protein, often referred to as a “time-released” protein, making it a good choice to add to whey protein and to consume prior to bedtime when you will be in a fasting state.
Earlier this year, Max Muscle launched Max Pro in new 1-pound trial sizes and will soon be offering new flavors in our traditional 2-pound and 4-pound containers.
Vitamins and minerals play essential roles in most metabolic processes in our body. They act as anti-oxidants, co-enzymes and catalysts playing roles in a number of chemical reactions. Vit-Acell Energy, which comes in a delicious citrus flavor, is a natural liquid nutrition supplement that provides 100 percent or more of 13 essential vitamins and essential minerals. It also contains a natural juice blend loaded with antioxidants, 100 mg of colloidal minerals and energizing herbal extracts such as green tea, ginkgo biloba, grape seed extract, ginseng, citrus bioflavonoid extract, rutin powder and herperidin extract. Vit-Acell Energy also contains a caffeine blend, making it a perfect choice for your morning multi-vitamin. It provides 100 mg of caffeine coming from green coffee bean extract, guarana extract, yerba mate extract and kola extract. Taking a liquid vitamin offers even more benefits such as:
Most of us know by now how important it is to supplement with essential fatty acids. Essential Omega is simply the best way to do it. Some of the features and health benefits include the following:
And the best part? The taste. You have to taste it to believe that you can take fish oil without the unpleasant fishy side effects we’ve all experienced. Essential Omega is available in lemon and mango peach flavors.
Glutamatrix is formulated with three different sources of glutamine, each easy to use and providing individual benefits for our body. GlutaMatrix helps to speed recovery by enhancing immunity, accelerating muscle repair and improving brain function. Here are some highlights:
Immunity, energy, performance and recovery all lead to results in achieving optimal health. If one is missing, you won’t get the results you’re looking for. Incorporating the Core 4 into your daily life is the foundation that supports each piece of your health and fitness program.
