3D NUTRITION SHRED THERMOGEL

It’s Frustrating, Isn’t It? Working So Hard But There Are Still Areas That Won’t Drop That Extra Fat?

Shred Thermo Gel has been scientifically formulated to shred that extra fat away, using patented ingredient formulations, and our revolutionary 3D Thermo Technology. L-Carnitine, Caffeine, and Raspberry Ketones are potent fat burning compounds, but many factors can reduce oral absorption. The combination of these trusted fat burning compounds with Tetrahydropiperine (THP) allows up to 90% absorption rate by penetrating deep into the dermis layer, where most fat is stored.

The addition of Benzyl Nicotinate will improve circulation to the area, a crucial factor in losing stubborn fat, along with Oleoresin Capsicum to heat up the local area. Area specific fat loss, increased absorption rates, and improved circulation provide a truly 3-dimensional approach to fat loss.


Take back control and burn fat in the places YOU want with Shred Thermo Gel!

 

Recommended Usage

  • Evenly apply Sculpt Gel to area of choice.
  • Advanced: 2 to 4 pumps per application 2 times a day.
  • For the best results use 45min prior to exercise. Apply to clean shaven/exfoliated shin and shake well before use.

Disclaimer

  • Do not exceed 8 pumps per day. May cause the skin to become red and flushed with a sensation of heat. These effects will dissipate. Wash hands thoroughly before and after application. Do not apply to neck or facial area.

Nutritional Facts

3D NUTRITION MONSTROUS MASS 5KG

3D Nutrition Monstrous Mass has been scientifically developed to be the ultimate weight and muscle gain blend. Monstrous Mass has been formulated using a blend of high quality protein and time-released carbs along with a muscle building matrix of creatine and L-glutamine and a testosterone amplifying matrix of magnesium and zinc to optimize gains in muscle mass.


Quality

Quality is of highest concern to 3D Nutrition which is why we publish the laboratory tests for each and every batch of Monstrous Mass we manufacture on our website. We are also one of the few brands that do not use amino acid spiking to increase the nitrogen content of our whey-based products which leads to untrue protein readings in laboratory testing. What is on the label is in the product!


Innovation

3D Nutrition Monstrous Mass is manufactured using our 3D Taste Technology in order to provide you with a unique taste experience which is guaranteed to tickle your taste buds.


Science

3D Nutrition Monstrous Mass contains a 46g blend of ultra-filtered whey and micellar casein protein. The whey protein provides an exceptionally fast digestion rate which assists in rapidly enhancing muscle protein synthesis (MPS) thereby enhancing muscle recovery and the building process. The slow release of the casein provides a constant flow of amino acids to ensure that MPS is sustained and muscle growth is maximized. Couple this mega-dose of protein with our 1:2.8 ratio of time-released carbohydrate blend and you can rest assured that insulin production and nutrient delivery will be optimized.

The Muscle Building Matrix

The Muscle Building Matrix in 3D Nutrition Monstrous Mass of creatine and L-glutamine. Creatine helps to replenish Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) levels in the muscle which in turn supplies the muscle with energy and stronger muscular contractions. The enhanced energy production leads to greater muscular endurance while the stronger muscular contractions provide the muscle with the ability to lift heavier and increase strength over time. The L-glutamine supports a healthy immune system which helps the body to repair and recover more efficiently as well as for increasing nitrogen retention in the muscle.

Testosterone Amplifying Matrix

To further help enhance the body’s ability to pack on muscle mass, 3D Nutrition Monstrous Mass contains a Testosterone Amplifying Matrix of magnesium amino acid chelate and zinc amino acid chelate. The zinc and magnesium combination work synergistically to promote the conversion of free cholesterol into testosterone. In order to further enhance the absorption and the ability of zinc to permeate the muscle cell wall, the chelated version of zinc and magnesium have been included in the blend.


RECOMMENDED USAGE

  • Take 1 serving (3 heaped scoops) with 400-500 ml of cold water or milk, depending on preference, after your workout.
  • On Non-Workout Days: Take 1 serving between meals.

TITAN NITE TIME CASEIN

The ultimate sustained release protein

Micellar Casein(Native milk protein isolate) is a biologically-unique grade of protein derived from milk, and is low in fat, lactose and sodium. Micellar casein is the purest and nutritionally most effective casein in existence which brings with it the sophistication of intact micelle structures. Micellar casein boasts an impressive nutritional profile that’s naturally rich in amino acids, protein and calcium. It has different bioactive peptides (α-, ß-, and κ-caseins) when compared with whey protein. Despite having the same high quality rating as micro filtered whey protein, caseins are more slowly utilized based on their coagulating properties. This slow digestion process allows the body to absorb more of the amino acids and peptides, while offering a steady and prolonged supply of nitrogen to muscle tissues. In doing so, satiety (fullness) can be enhanced while muscle fibers are efficiently nourished.

Workouts deplete muscles –recovery strengthens them

Titan Nite-Time has been designed to inject an ongoing stream of growth-stimulating protein into your muscles to take your muscular recovery and growth potential to the highest level. Many scientists believe that casein is the perfect protein due to the gradual release of protein combined with its high BV (Biological Value) and PER (Protein Efficiency Ratio). Casein forms a gel in the stomach leading to a more moderate rise in blood amino acids that is sustained for up to 7 hours. As it is absorbed, it is converted to amino-acids for nitrogen deposition. A number of growth and repair-positive hormones are released during sleep, yet their performance is adversely affected if there is insufficient ingested protein present. With Titan 100% Micellar Casein, you can provide for muscular recovery and growth at the time that it really counts. Among the many Advantages that Titan Nite Time 100% Micellar Casein enjoys over ordinary acid and rennet caseinates is the potent peptide cleaving and GMP forming action that results from the digestive hydrolysis of intact micellar kappa-caseins. In addition, while all caseins are digested over a long 6-7 hour period, the release of protein gradually declines over the digestion period. Modern, undenatured micellar casein provides a consistent, straight-line, uninterrupted flow of peptides into the bloodstream for the full measurement period. While whey protein has consistently shown itself to be the fastest, most bioavailable muscle building product, its speed makes it ideal for post-exercise use. Because the process of muscular repair continues, not only for many hours but for days, sustained release proteins are the athletes best protection against negative nitrogen balances and a catabolic state.

Low lactose

Casein protein is inherently low in lactose. For lactose intolerant individuals, this is important as incomplete digestion resulting from gastric intolerance causes discomfort and the protein never reaches the muscles.

Purity and potency

Each serving of Nite Time 100% Micellar Casein, mixed with 250ml of skimmed milk sends 30 grams of protein into your system, giving your body an unbeatable protein-rich climate for maximum muscle recuperation and growth.

Amazing taste

Can something that tastes as good as this really be a lean casein? The extraordinary flavour and texture you experience is because Titan takes no shortcuts with ingredient quality. Nature-sourced flavours, expertly balanced blends of soluble prebiotics and non-soluble fibre, the purest separated caseins and above all, its proprietary Cold Fold Technology all give Titan Nite Time 100% Micellar Casein its unique taste and consistency.

TITAN BCAA CRUSH

Why Titan BCAA Crush?

As the building blocks of protein, amino acids are necessary for growth and repair of muscle tissue. Without them, protein in the body breaks down, resulting in muscle loss. Titan uses the finest, tested pharmaceutical grade BCAA’s on the market.

Branched chain amino acids (BCAA’s), named according to their molecular structure include the essential amino acids, leucine, isoleucine and valine, can be taken in supplement form. They can be consumed before, during or after a workout to help improve exercise performance and endurance in addition to aiding recovery after strenuous exercise.

Titan BCAA Crush will bypass the liver and go directly to your muscles for fueling, building and repairing. Thus they can be used during and after a workout. During exercise, increased levels of serotonin, the hormone that regulates mood, can cause fatigue. Several studies have proven that BCAA’s, specifically valine, can help reduce serotonin levels, thus keeping exercise fatigue at bay.

BCAA’s can be used to help prevent post exercise soreness by impeding muscle damage and helping stimulate growth and repair. In particular, the amino acid leucine directly stimulates muscle growth in two ways. First, it triggers muscle protein synthesis, the stringing together of amino acids to build stronger protein.

Titan BCAA Crush will help you enhance muscle growth by boosting growth hormone levels and lowering cortisol levels. The more growth hormone present after a workout the more benefits will occur.

UNIVERSAL CREATINE MONOHYDRATE

There’s bad creatine and good Creatine. Then there’s great Creatine. What’s the difference?

Manufacturing quality and form. The only clinically surmised form is Creatine Monohydrate Powder. The best creatine monohydrate is manufactured in Germany. Our creatine monohydrate powder is a German creatine that’s so pure, it’s patented. It’s one of the finest in the world. ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is the energy source for all muscular contractions (bodybuilding).

Energy is created when ATP releases one of its phosphate groups (ATP then becomes ADP). Creatine donates a phosophate back to ADP, reforming ATP, and thus restoring your ATP pool. By doing so, you can work out harder, longer, and more effectively. Creatine use can increase your strength and performance. It can help build lean mass by volumizing and hydrating muscle cells, thus creating a necessary anabolic environment for growth.

SNP VITAMIN B12 CHEWS

B-group vitamins help the body to use the fuel from our food sources. Although B-group vitamins are found in many foods, they are water soluble and easily destroyed before being ingested. Supplementing with B12 ensures the body has optimal vitamin intake to convert available glycogen into energy in the bloodstream. Due to the water soluble nature of Vitamin B12, the body utilises the necessary vitamins required and then flushes the surplus vitamins through the renal system, without harming your body. A prolonged poor diet could result in a B-group vitamin deficiency. For this reason, it is important that adequate amounts of these vitamins be eaten regularly as part of a well-balanced, nutritious diet.

Product Highlights:

  • Enhance energy production and enhance focus.
  • B-Vitamins are vital to energy conversion in the body.
  • Easy and convenient SUGAR FREE chewable tablet.
