And just like that, Springtime is on its way out and Summer is just around the corner! Wait, did you just realize that your body is still stuck in winter mode? No worries. There’s still 4 weeks before Memorial Day weekend! You can hit the workouts hard and burn the extra calories AND get a little boost along the way with the Summer Shape-Up Package.

Amino acids are the buzz in the health and fitness industry, and many people take them for various benefits. There are so many different options available with some being “essential” and some described as “branched chain.” What part do they play in the body and what benefits do they provide?

With New Year’s resolutions in full swing and most of them centered on getting fit, we present to you some of the keys to success.

First, it’s important to set goals, but set that goal in a S.M.A.R.T. manner.

Strings of streetlights…Even stop lights…Blink a bright red and green...

With the holiday season upon us, we are surrounded by thematic decorations of red and green. Instead of Santa hats and evergreens, we are going to redefine red and green as they relate to the world of supplements.

With all the workout trends and nutrition fads, it’s easy to overlook and forget the most fundamental basics. Sometimes we can get too caught up in the macronutrient levels and the caloric values of the foods that we are eating that the most simple, and yet critical, steps are missed. Life is busy enough, so if all else fails, remember these basic rules.

Is your fitness journey stuck in a rut? Have your results plateaued? Then now is the time to Unleash the Beast.

All of us have been endowed with a sense of fight or flight. It is a part of our being that is designed to keep us safe and prevents our race from extinction. Our inner core waits for a signal from us to activate that beast that lurks inside… just itching to be unleashed. This natural fighting instinct can propel us to be in the best shape of our lives…and these supplements can support you in your quest. 

During intense workouts, tissue can be damaged at the microlevel and the usage of fuel stores goes up dramatically. Ultimately, these strong performances can push us to higher levels of leaner, meaner muscle, but in the short-term, some repair is necessary.

In addition, the body has been tasked to use its sources of essential nutrients faster than usual due to the stress taken place during the workout phase. Most often, carbohydrates are used as the primary source of energy during a workout. After being converted to glycogen stores, carbohydrates are stored by the body to be used as energy. Following a workout, these glycogen stores have been depleted and require restoration. R5 Reload was designed to replenish your body during the most important part of your training program, the post-workout phase.

Intra Edg3 is an intra-workout catalyst for maximizing training, performance and recovery. The SRX BCAA matrix found in Intra Edg3 contains more than 7 grams of essential branched chain amino acids (L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine) per serving to stimulate muscle protein synthesis, plus more than 2 grams of L-Glutamine to promote recovery, as well as more than 1 gram of Citrulline to boost nitric oxide production in the body.


Most health specialists will tell you the more greens you eat; the less likely you will be to develop any type of chronic disease. The issue is most of us consume far less nutrient-rich greens than we should. With that in mind, we can’t take advantage of the health benefits, which can include reducing inflammation, enhancing detoxification and helping maintain a proper pH balance in the body.
