Athletic Edge Nutrition Intrabolic
Intra-Workout Powder For Increased Performance, Increases Blood Flow To Build Muscle And Reduce Fatigue
What is the point of investing your hard earned money on supplements that claim to be the latest and greatest phenomenon when they are NOT going to help you DURING your workouts? IntrAbolic has been tested by thousands of consumers. We believe it’s the best formulated Intra-workout product on the mark.
What is Intra-Workout Supplementation?
Intra-Workout supplementation simply means, taking nutrients DURING your workout (Intra-Workout).
What makes taking nutrients in this intra-workout time frame so beneficial?
Exercise in itself causes our body’s to increase blood flow to working muscles up to 500%, increasing amino acid delivery to skeletal muscle by 650%! At the same time, cellular sensitivity is increased, enabling our muscles to increase the rate of the absorption of substrates and fuel. When high concentrations of amino-acids are present in the blood stream DURING exercise, the anabolic response (muscle building) brought about by exercise is GREATLY increased! Furthermore, by taking IntrAbolic, you fight the catabolic (muscle breakdown) effects of exercise, boost recovery, decrease muscle soreness and delay muscular fatigue.*

Intra-workout supplementation has evolved, shouldn’t YOU?
Gone are the days of simply drinking water, or one of those high sugar packed sports drinks intra-workout (DURING). If you are working out, instead of carrying around something that simply hydrates you, or fills you with a bunch of simple sugars, why not fill your water bottle or shaker with peptides, amino-acids and electrolytes, that are actually going to help, increase recovery, build muscle, in addition to supporting optimal electrolyte levels, while staying hydrated?
What makes IntrAbolic different from the current supplement that fit in the pre-workout and post-workout categories?
By now, you are probably aware of the importance of two nutrient timing windows: pre-workout and post-workout. However, one largely overlooked nutrient timing window, is intra-workout (during-workout) supplementation. IntrAbolic is a new breed of supplements which was specifically designed from the ground up, to be taken intra-workout (DURING) to maximize RESULTS from your workouts! The addition of all-natural coconut water concentrate is one of nature's superfoods, a complete balance of electrolytes and minerals—and it maximizes uptake. It is superior to manufactured sports drinks.
IntrAbolic is NOT another simple, INCOMPLETE BCAA Supplement
Our bodies need ALL of the NINE essential amino-acids (EAAs) to build muscle. So why are you settling for old school, incomplete amino-acid products that only supply you with the THREE Branch chain amino-acids (BCAAs)? While the BCAAs are very important EAAs, our bodies require the other SIX EAAs to build muscle. IntrAbolic provides ALL the NINE EAAs coming from our hydrolyzed whey protein and is boosted with extra BCAAs coming from both the hydrolyzed whey protein and free-form BCAAs.
What are the issues and needs that should be taken into account and overcome when choosing an intra-workout supplement and how does IntraBolic overcome them?
ISSUE ONE: During exercise, physiologically, it is NOT optimal to be digesting intact protein, such as whey or food during your workout, which will divert blood and energy AWAY from your working muscles to your gut, exactly what you DON’T want. This is a primary reason why a regular intact protein like whey isolate, whey concentrate, milk protein or food should NOT be used intra-workout.
INTRABOLIC SOLUTION: We address these issues by utilizing a unique CUSTOM whey protein hydrolysate (WPH) exclusively found ONLY in IntrAbolic. Our custom WPH has undergone a high degree of hydrolysis, which breakdown large proteins into smaller fragments, called peptides. Our custom WPH supplies a minimum of 65% of its peptides, in the shortest and most rapidly absorbed form, which are the low-molecular weight, di-and tripeptides, we refer to as IntrAbolic-Peptides™. Our bodies contain transporters in our guts called PEPT1 which specifically transport di-and tripeptides. Due to the fact that di-and triptides do not have to undergo the same slow digestive process as regular protein, they can bypass the disadvantages that intact proteins possess.
BUYER BEWARE: All hydrolyzed are NOT created equal. The benefits from hydrolyzed proteins come from the content of di-and tripeptides, with large variances in the percentage of hydrolysis the whey protein has undergone. It is the percentage of hydrolysis is low, the percentage of the beneficial di-and tripeptides will be low to nonexistent. A low degree of hydrolysis will leave you with a high amount of inferior polypeptides and little to NO di-and tripeptides. Check the panels of other products that contain hydrolyzed protein and look for the percentage of di-and tripeptides they contain. If they do not disclose the percentage of di-and tripeptides on the label, be warned they may be very low or even nonexistent. IntrAbolic contains an industry high of a minimum 65% di-and tripeptides, listed on our label.
ISSUE TWO: Missing the intra-workout window of opportunity. Not only do slower absorbed intact proteins need to be digested, which is NOT desirable DURING exercise as mentioned above, but by the time the amino-acids start being released into the blood and get circulated to your muscles, the entire intra-workout window of opportunity is primarily missed. Additionally, the slower release of amino-acids into the blood from intact sources of proteins causes smaller blood plasma concentrations of amino-acids limiting the anabolic response.
INTRABOLIC SOLUTION: Rapidly absorbed di-and tripeptides and free-form amino-acids found in IntrAbolic greatly spike amino-acids concentrations DURING exercise, maximally stimulating the anabolic response.
ISSUE THREE: Many products are incomplete and supply ONLY the branch chain amino-acids (BCAAs). Our bodies need ALL the nine EAAs to build muscle, not just the three BCAAs. That’s why they are called ESSENTIAL amino-acids, our bodies MUST get them from our diets and cannot make them. Don’t settle for products that are incomplete and do not contain all the EAAs needed to build muscle mass.*
INTRABOLIC SOLUTION: Our CUSTOM hydrolyzed whey contains ALL the EAAs in addition to having extra EAAs in free-form.
ISSUE FOUR: Low amounts or unlisted amounts of the most anabolic amino-acid leucine. Research has shown, taking leucine in the amounts of 3-5grams per sitting, directly stimulates protein synthesis, as well being anticatabolic.*
INTRABOLIC SOLUTION: IntrAbolic contains leucine in our custom hydrolyzed whey and in addition, an extra 2.5grams of leucine in free form, putting it right in the efficacious muscle building range.*
ISSUE FIVE: Does not contain electrolytes that are important intra-workout as they have the ability to assist in absorption of fluid uptake in the gut, allowing for optimal hydration. The Minerals calcium and magnesium are critical as they are needed in the muscular contraction process.
INTRABOLIC SOLUTION: Contains exact amounts of the needed electrolytes and minerals for optimal fluid uptake and powerful muscle contractions.
IntrAbolic is Not a Simple, incomplete BCAA Supplement
Our bodies need ALL the NINE essential amino-acids (EAAs) to build muscle, so don’t settle for old school, incomplete products that only supply you with the THREE Branch chain amino-acids(BCAAs). While the BCAAs are very important EAAs, our bodies require the other SIX EAAs to build muscle. The BCAAs can’t do it alone without the other six EAAS. IntrAbolic provides ALL the NINE EAAs coming from our hydrolyzed whey protein and is boosted with extra BCAAs coming from both the hydrolyzed whey protein and free-form BCAAs.
Custom Whey Protein Hydrolysate = IntrAbolic-Peptides™
IntrAbolic works by utilizing a unique whey protein hydrolysate (WPH) found exclusively in IntrAbolic. Our custom WPH has undergone a high degree of hydrolysis (over 30%) which supplies a minimum of 65% low-molecular weight, di-and tripeptides we refer to as IntrAbolic-Peptides™. Unlike standard intact proteins and long chain peptides, IntrAbolic-Peptides™ do not have to undergo the typical slow digestive process. Their unique properties also allow them to utilize a highly efficient transport system, specific to di-and tripeptides. Unlike regular amino acids derived from intact proteins which are slow to enter the bloodstream, IntrAbolic-Peptides are rapidly absorbed, causing a tremendous spike in extracellular amino acids. Research suggests, it is extracellular amino acid concentrations that stimulate and signal our bodies to increase protein synthesis and maximize the anabolic response. Concurrently, this large amino acid spike causes an insulin increase to fight muscle breakdown which occurs during training. Rapid and efficient absorption also makes these peptides ideal for use during your workout as they will not cause bloating or stomach discomfort like other intact proteins.
Free-form amino acids
Another highly efficient and rapid way to get amino acids into the blood (second only to di-and tripeptides) is through ingestion of free-form amino acids (ffAA’s). Intensive nutrient timing research studies show ffAA’s (due to their quick absorption) can cause a big spike in blood plasma amino acid concentrations and when timed properly with exercise, may illicit a much greater anabolic response from exercise than intact proteins can. Combining di-and tripeptides with ffAA’s creates a powerful one-two punch in boosting anabolism and fighting catabolism. The beauty of combining di-and tripeptides with ffAA’s is both use different intestinal transporters to carry them into the blood, maximizing absorption speed with very little redundancy. Current research shows that di- and tripeptides may actually enhance the ffAA’s transporters, further increasing the rate of absorption.*
This powerhouse amino acid is suggested in research to stimulate protein synthesis both directly and indirectly by increasing the hormone insulin, which is both anabolic and anti-catabolic.* Simply put, this is one of the most effective amino acids you can take intra-workout and further enhances the anabolic response when other essential amino acids.
The importance of replacing the electrolytes: sodium, potassium and chloride should not be overlooked since, during exercise, we are losing electrolytes at an accelerated rate. Just as important, is their ability to assist in the absorption of fluid and carbohydrate uptake in the gut. The minerals calcium and magnesium are included as they are needed for muscular contraction and muscular growth. When magnesium levels are low during exercise, research has shown fatigue increases.*
So can't I simply take any whey hydrolysis and receive the same benefits as IntrAbolic?
No. NOT ALL whey protein hydrolysates (WPH) are created equal as there are large variances in degrees of hydrolysis the whey protein has undergone. A low degree of hydrolysis will leave you with a high amount of inferior polypeptides and little to NO di-and tripeptides. Check the panels of other WPH products and look for the percentage of hydrolysis the whey has undergone. If they do not disclose the degree of hydrolysis on the label be warned as it may be VERY low. Do not mistake the percentage of how much of the product is WPH for the percentage of hydrolysis the whey has undergone. They are NOT related. For example, IntrAbolic protein is 100% WPH, but the degree of hydrolysis is over 30%.
