In reality, there are probably very few true hard-gainers running around. In fact, if you took everyone who's having a hard time making progress and just got them to consume ample amounts of the right mix of nutrients post workout, the vast majority would make consistent, continual muscle-mass gains. Really, it's that simple — and that hard.
The hard part of effective post-workout nutrition is determining the right blend of nutrients in the ideal ratios. Biotest Surge is designed to switch on anabolism and halt catabolism when it's absolutely most important — post workout. The formula stimulates a hormonal (primarily insulin) surge that drives high concentrations of certain nutrients, supplied by the drink, deep into the muscle cell. And if you're successful at achieving this cascade effect, you'll quash catabolism and stimulate anabolism, big time! In fact, it's estimated that you can speed up your body's ability to recover and build muscle by a minimum of one full day, which can make the difference between being the typical hard-gainer and at least a good-gainer.
Biotest Surge is one of those supplements that actually works a whole bunch better than you could ever hope for. The people who've tried our formula have all had the same experiences. More specifically, they saw dramatic increases in recovery ability, which translated into newfound muscle-mass gains.
What we've done is taken 18 incredibly potent, freeze-dried super extracts of WHOLE fruits and vegetables and combined them in what we believe is the perfect superfood. We chose each for their almost drug-like properties, and put them together in one incredibly potent, incredibly concentrated, incredibly easy-to-use powdered supplement.
No fillers, no extra flavoring agents, no sweeteners, nothing extra — just pure superfood.
Take a look at the ingredients first and then I'll tell you why we chose them and what exactly we did with them:
Wild Blueberry (1.5% anthocyanin)
Raspberry (20% allagic acid, 0.7% anthocyanins)
Acai Berry (1.5% total phenolic acids, 1% anthocyanins)
Coffee Berry (50% total phenolic acids)
Pomegranate (40% ellagic acid)
Broccoli Sprout (5000 ppm sulforophane)
Spinach (700 ppm lutein)
Wasabi (20% glucosinolates)
Wild Yam (20% diosgenin)
Green Tea (95% total polyphenols, 65% total catechins, 40% EGCG)
Orange (40% vitamin C)
Watermelon (1000 ppm lycopene)
While you're no doubt familiar with many of these fruits and vegetables, some might be a mystery. We based our choices on a number of factors:
• A broad spectrum of carotenoids and phytochemicals, including the prostate protective lycopene and the vision protective lutein.
• Vegetables that contain estrogen-fighting indoles.
• Vegetables that have potent cancer-fighting ability.
• The major factor in many of our choices, however, was their incredibly powerful antioxidant capabilities as measured by something called the ORAC scale.
ORAC Scale Measures Antioxidant Potency
The ORAC scale is a standardized test used by the USDA to measure the Total Antioxidant Potency of foods and nutritional supplements. The ORAC provides a precise way of measuring the power of specific foods or supplements to neutralize free radicals in the body. The term stands for "Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, and the measurement is expressed as ORAC units per 100 grams of a given compound.
For instance, the USDA determined an "average serving of fruits AND vegetables" has an ORAC rating of between 400 and 500.
As you might guess, all fruits and vegetables aren't created equal. Some, like coffee berry, acai berry, and goji berry, while not exactly household commodities, are off the chart on the ORAC scale.
So just what is the ORAC rating of just 5 grams (about 1 teaspoon) of Biotest's Superfood? Are you sitting down?
That means that just ONE TEASPOON of Biotest's Superfood is equivalent to eating between 10 and 12 average servings of fruits and vegetables!
Freeze Drying is the Key
I know, you're skeptical. How can one teaspoon be equivalent to that many servings of fruits and vegetables?
Actually, it's not implausible at all. Each of the ingredients in Biotest's Superfood is freeze dried.
Freeze drying is a process by which nothing but the water is removed from the fruits and vegetables. Each product is individually quick frozen so all water turns to solid ice. It's then subjected to warm temperature and a vacuum so that the water turns to vapor and is essentially sucked out of the fruit or vegetable, leaving everything intact.
That means the pigments and phytochemicals have been well preserved. The product retains the identical phytochemical content, enzymatic activity, and bioactivity of fresh products. Furthermore, freeze-dried products have the longest ambient shelf life of any known drying process.
But what's equally important is what Biotest's Superfood product doesn't contain:
• No added sweetener, natural or artificial
• No food coloring
• No added flavoring
• No allergy-inducing grasses
• No Testosterone-lowering herbs (ie, licorice and bilberry)
• No seaweed, algae, or other faddish ingredients
• No added chemicals of any kind, just organically grown berries, fruits, and vegetables from 1,000 acres of privately owned land.
In fact, you'll find nothing in Superfood but sweet, fresh, nutrient-laden fruits and vegetables!
