Calcium Complex Powder – The Hi-Potency Calcium Complex Formula is a superior quality source of supplemental bone building Calcium and related minerals and nutrients. Calcium is without doubt the most plentiful and important mineral in the body. In addition to its well know structural function in bones, calcium is also essential for the proper function of the nervous system, muscle contraction (heart and all other muscles), blood coagulation & the critical acid / alkaline balance throughout the body. Each highly soluble and neutral tasting serving (1/2 teaspoon) provides 500 mg (50% of the USRDA) of calcium. To help insure optimal results, the calcium is supplied as a special balanced combination of high nutrient value forms of this critical mineral. Because of the importance of nutrient synergy and balance, the formula also contains Magnesium, Vitamin D, (which is critical to calcium absorption and utilization), and Zinc.

Creatine Monohydrate - assists in the production of energy and muscle building process. Most of the creatine in the body is stored in the muscles as creatine or in a form called phosphocreatine. Creatine is a quickly available energy source for muscle contraction. It also increases the synthesis of muscle protein and the formation of polyamines, which are powerful growth promoters. Most used to enhance athletic performance and post-surgery recovery.
ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) is the natural high energy fuel molecule that provides energy for muscle contraction. Unfortunately, we are able to store only limited amounts of this critical high energy compound in our muscle tissue and peak muscle contraction rapidly depletes our reserves resulting in a loss of muscle strength.
Pure microcrystalline Creatine Monohydrate Powder is a highly bioavailable precursor to the natural high energy molecule Creatine Phosphate. The human body readily transforms Creatine Monohydrate into Creatine Phosphate and then uses this high energy compound to rapidly recycle energy depleted ADP (Adenosine Diphosphate) in muscle tissue into high energy ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). The supplemental use of Creatine Monohydrate accelerates the rate of this recycling process and provides the muscle tissue with a significantly greater supply of ATP. More ATP results in greater and more sustained peak muscle strength and power.
The regular use of supplemental Creatine Monohydrate Powder helps increase ATP levels and accelerate recovery which allows for more aggressive training and greater more explosive peak muscle strength and performance (4 cal., 0 fat) (no taste)
Creatine Magnesium Complex Powder – ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) is the natural high energy fuel molecule that provides energy for muscle contraction. Unfortunately, we are able to store only limited amounts of this critical high energy compound in our muscle tissue and peak muscle contraction rapidly depletes our reserves resulting in a loss of muscle strength. Creatine Magnesium Complex Powder contains Creatine Monohydrate, a highly bioavailable precursor to the natural high energy molecule Creatine Phosphate. The human body readily transforms Creatine Monohydrate into Creatine Phosphate and then uses this high energy compound to rapidly recycle energy depleted ADP (Adenosine Diphosphate) in muscle tissue into high energy ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate). The supplemental use of Creatine Monohydrate accelerates the rate of his recycling process and provides the muscle tissue with a significantly greater supply of ATP. More ATP results in greater and more sustained peak muscle strength and power.
The Creatine Magnesium Complex also contains Magnesium, an essential mineral that functions as a cofactor in many vital energy reactions. Magnesium also helps prevent muscle cramping that is often associated with aggressive training. The regular use of supplemental Creatine Magnesium Complex with help increase ATP levels and accelerate recovery, and help prevent muscle cramps, allowing for more aggressive training and greater more explosive peak muscle strength and performance.

Ginkgo Biloba - Increases and normalizes blood flow by relaxing blood flow to the brain, thereby improving brain function. May have antioxidant properties in the brain, retina of the eye, and the cardiovascular system which may help prevent age-related declines in brain function.
The Ginkgo is the world’s oldest living tree species, and it can be traced back more than 200 million years. Almost destroyed during the last ice age, the species survived in China where it was cultivated and protected as a sacred tree. Traditional Chinese physicians have used ginkgo leaves for thousands of years to treat a wide variety of conditions and today the ginkgo is considered to be one of the most valuable of all Asian herbs. Ginkgo has recently been the focus of intense scientific research and these sophisticated studies are now beginning to reveal the secrets behind ginkgo’s amazing effects.
Ginkgo leaf contains dozens of biologically active natural substances including powerful free radical scavengers (antioxidants) called flavonoids and platlet inhibitors known as terpene ginkgolides. These important substances can help improve cerebral and peripheral blood flow and provide powerful neuroprotective effects. Ginkgo has traditionally be used as a natural treatment for cerebral insufficiency (poor blood flow to the brain), dementia's, Alzheimer's disease, peripheral circulatory disorders (frequently associated with diabetes), anxiety / stress and bronchoconstriction (asthma). Ginkgo is currently being investigated as a memory enhancer function in a wide variety of reliable scientific studies. Ginkgo biloba leaf extract is now recognized as a legitimate herbal medicinal by many European countries. (0 cal. 0 fat) (grassy taste, no taste to slight taste in beverage)

Echinacea is a perennial herb that stimulates the body's immune system. It has a long history of use among the native American Indian tribes. Early American settlers soon discovered the value of Echinacea and began using the herb for snake bites, infections and as a general blood purifier. Contemporary Scientists have now validated Echinacea’s status as a wound healing agent & immunostimulant. It is included in the European Commission E Monographs as a legitimate herbal drug.
Vitamin C serves as a powerful antioxidant and helps to prevent oxidative damage in the body. It can block many types of highly reactive chemical species called free radicals, including superoxide and hydroxyl radicals in blood and body fluids, as well as regenerating vitamin E, the free radical scavenger of cell membranes and lipids. Stimulates wound healing, proper adrenal function, helps the body to metabolize cholesterol, activates neutrophils (white blood cells) and increases the production of lymphocytes. Vitamin C may be the single most critical micronutrient with regard to the support of a healthy immune response. (4 cal., 0 fat) (no taste to slight tart grassy)
