Founded by notable bodybuilder Rich Gaspari, Gaspari Nutrition carries a wide range of supplements intended for people across the fitness spectrum. The products in the line are qualified according to eight classifications: muscle building and recovery, pre-workout amplifiers, thermogenic diet products, vitality and well being, lean lifestyle, protein, mass building and intraworkout powerhouses. Individual products typically belong to more than one classification.
One of the label’s most versatile and popular products is AminoMax 8000. This protein-powder is classified for muscle building and recovery, lean lifestyle and mass building. Enriching amino acids, l-taurine and l-leucine aid with muscle repair before or after a workout. For similar results without the mass building, try the MyoFusion line. MyoFusion Probiotic contains amino acids and a probiotic formula that aids digestive health. The amino acids in MyoFusion Hydro are an advanced blend that disperse and digest faster in the body for more immediate of results.
Another powerhouse product is BCAA 6000. The l-leucine heavy powder contains Vitamins B-6 and B-12 to help ease muscle soreness while imparting a crash-free boost of energy. This lean lifestyle and muscle building and recovery powder can be taken whenever a metabolic boost is required, such as before or after a workout. It can also be taken prior to bed, since the body’s metabolism naturally slows down during slumber. This provides a way to burn more calories while doing nothing at all.
The SuperPump products are a good bet for pre-workout supplementation. SuperPump Max, a mass builder, has a formula rich with amino acids and high doses of Vitamins B-12, B-3 and B-6. SuperPump Stick Packs offers convenient, individually packaged doses of a lighter formula pre-workout cocktail appropriate for both lean lifestyle and mass building, depending on the doses ingested and what products are paired with the sticks.
An even lighter product that’s appropriate for low carbohydrate lifestyles is Intrapro. This pure whey protein isolate is meant for a lean lifestyle and muscle building and recovery. The formula is enriched with vitamins and minerals so that it can safely be used as a meal replacement. It is a nutritional basic that offers benefits most people could use without the addition of ingredients that have to be burned off through strenuous exercise.
Sizeon Pre-context is an intraworkout powerhouse for those living a lean lifestyle. The formula blends nutrients, minerals and amino acids to create a product that aids in muscle repair so that definition becomes more apparent faster. Its brother product Sizeon Max Performance keeps all the benefits but adds mass building properties, delivered through an increase of proteins and complex carbohydrates, to help in bulking up.
Real Mass protein powder is another powerhouse mass building product. Its engineered enzyme complex marries with protein and carbohydrates to aid digestion and speed up muscle repair. This formula is quite high in carbohydrates but manages to provide a crash-free boost of energy. The similar product Qualitine is creatine monohydrate protein that is absorbed into the muscle for the promotion of muscle size and strength.
There are only two products in the vitality and well being classification, which offer a more general health approach to supplements. Viridex XT is a testosterone raising supplement that claims to raise testosterone levels up to 166% while dropping cortisol levels 19%. The presence of testosterone means that this assists in sexual health and performance as it also serves as a muscle building and recovery agent. Annavite is a complex multivitamin formulated specifically for bodies undergoing intensive training. It offers higher doses, and a broader range, than the supplements contained within a standard multivitamin. Since high exercise eats up the body’s nutritional storage faster, a heavier multivitamin is essential to general well being.
There are also only two thermogenic diet products, which are designed to work with the body’s chemistry to boost metabolism and burn off fat quicker than diet and exercise alone. Spriodex is a mood enhancing dietary supplement that stimulates the neurotransmitters responsible for mood, alertness and appetite suppression. Phenorex is a powerful fat burning bio-amine that gives a rush of energy without a crash.
Individuals should read the product descriptions carefully before purchasing a supplement. If you don’t recognize the name of an ingredient, do some research or ask a qualified nutrition expert for assistance. It’s important to find the correct balance of protein and supplement that match the metabolism, activity level and biochemistry of your particular body. It may take some experimentation with different products before you find a product that works for your needs. Test products one at a time to ensure that the results are due to that product and not due to a dosing regimen previously started.
