Supplement Company Of The Month: Evogen
Hany Rambod has undoubtedly contributed to many aspects of bodybuilding. He is one of, if not the best known coach or "guru" in the sport today, and his FST-7 training series has now been used by millions of people .
Now, supplement companies beware because the Pro Creator is making his mark in the supplement industry. His new Evogen line hasn't been out very long and it is already making an impact all over the bodybuilding and fitness landscape. EVP is quickly helping many people shatter plateaus and reach new heights in training and competition. That is why Evogen is the Supplement Company of the Month.
We chatted with Hany to see what has been going on with EVP and what else we can look forward to from Evogen in the near future.
[ Q ] Can you please tell our readers how your company started and what led to the decision to start Evogen?
I originally began designing custom nutritional formulas specifically for my select athlete clientele in multiple professional sports, including bodybuilding football, track and field, and MMA. The elite athletes I work with have very specific needs, and I realized that there wasn't much available supplement-wise that met those needs, nor my own high standards. So I began developing my own premium, custom formulations exclusively for my clients. As I turned out winner after winner at the top amateur and professional bodybuilding contests in the world, people began to notice that all of these champions had a common look; in addition to being bone-dry shredded, they were all big, full and round. An underground buzz began regarding some of the formulas I was using with my athletes.
Although many of the individual components I used were also accessible in other commercially available products, results were often limited with these other products for several reasons. One, athletes were forced to combine several different products, often with antagonistic ingredients, fillers, and sugar in an attempt to get all the things they needed to replicate my formulas. Two, nobody knew the exact ratios of the ingredients necessary to achieve the effects I got with my formulas. Three, the premium quality, ultra-soluble, bio-available versions of the key ingredients I used were not commercially available to the general public. Almost overnight, it seems, demand grew for the formulas I was using with my athletes. We created Evogen® Nutrition to answer this incredible demand.
[ Q ] Most of the people reading this know who you are. For those that are new to the industry, can you tell us a little more about yourself and your background in the industry?
I graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2000 with a Bachelor's Degree in Biology with an emphasis in Neurophysiology. Shortly after graduation, I began consulting with top athletes in bodybuilding, fitness, figure, pro football, and Olympic track & field. My ability to get top amateurs ready for the national level contests and those athletes then getting their pro cards earned me the moniker, "The Pro Creator."
I began competing in natural bodybuilding as a teenager and continued my amateur bodybuilding career through my time at UCSB, allowing me to put my classroom learning to practical use in the gym and on the competitive stage.
Shortly after graduation, the overwhelming demand for my unique knowledge and abilities took me off the stage and put me more behind the scenes where I eventually became the top contest-prep advisor in bodybuilding. Through my years of experience with an incredibly diverse genetic pool of athletes, I have had the opportunity to fine-tune several versions of what has now become the most comprehensive, Elite Pre-Workout Solution, EVP.
I also write regularly for many of the top bodybuilding and fitness magazines. I am known as the creator of the FST-7 Training System. FST-7 has been the most talked about training system in bodybuilding and fitness in recent years.
[ Q ] What is EVP?
EVP represents the future in physique- and performance-enhancing supplementation. Proven by science, perfected by research and tested on elite, world-class athletes, there is no other product like EVP.
EVP, short for Evopoietin One Alpha, is a carefully engineered performance nutrition supplement, designed specifically to augment the internal mechanisms that trigger and support muscle growth. EVP contains unique, potent, and pharmaceutical-grade ingredients of the highest quality and purity, meticulously combined to optimize the internal training environment. EVP is the ultimate, complete pre-workout formula that will take your training to the next level.
[ Q ] What Does EVP Do?
The specialized ingredients in EVP synergistically deliver muscle size, plateau-breaking gains in strength and skin-splitting pumps and results. EVP fuels the mechanisms of muscle growth, maximizing size, strength and pump. EVP drives enriching, blood engorging nutrients into the muscle cell, causing an increase in blood volume with a corresponding "swelling" of muscle tissue, providing cellular energy catalysts and a high-potency anabolic stimulus to trigger new muscle growth. EVP combines powerful, proven, performance-boosting ingredients to deliver dramatic muscle-cell volumizing and fascia-stretching pumps while feeding fullness and ongoing muscular contractions. Within 20 minutes of taking EVP, your muscles will be maximally engorged with vein-popping, nutrient-rich blood, and prepped for maximum performance.
[ Q ] What did you want to do when creating EVP?
When I originally formulated EVP, my intention was to create a complete pre-workout solution, a performance-enhancing, volatizing and energy support product using the most pure, most efficacious ingredients possible. But, my goal was to create such a product that could be utilized at any step of the pre-contest program, without the use of any impurities or ingredients that might diminish or counter the body's own internal anabolic and lipolytic mechanisms. I created EVP using the most pure, most potent pharmaceutical and high-grade ingredients available.
EVP is made without the use of carbohydrates, fillers or stimulants. Carbohydrates can lead to insulin spikes that can effectively shut down the body's fat burning mechanisms. For this reason, EVP is 100% Carbohydrate-Free. The overuse of stimulants can lead to adrenal fatigue, and pump-choking vaso-constriction and may actually limit performance in certain situations. I wanted to be certain that EVP is the most effective product available.
That's why EVP contains no caffeine or other stimulants. And EVP is made using only the most-pure, most-potent and highest quality ingredients available, with no fillers or fluff. From the pharmaceutical-grade, ultra-soluble and fermented L-Leucine and glutamine, to the highest quality Carnosyn® Beta Alanine, non-bloating creatines and quad-arginine blend, to the custom neuro-support formula, there is no single or combination of products that even come close to EVP for quality and efficacy.
[ Q ] How does EVP work exactly?
EVP's carefully engineered, battle-tested formulation includes key compounds and matrices, working in synergy to optimize the internal biochemical environment to provide maximum size, strength and pump during your high-intensity training sessions. EVP is designed to push muscle engorging, volumizing nutrients and ATP-enriching substrates into muscle cells, fueling ongoing muscular contractions. EVP also flips the "on-switch" for protein synthesis and stimulates cell growth, specifically utilizing FUSIL®, EVP's "Pharmaceutical Anabolic Catalyst", only available from Evogen Nutrition.
1. Pharmaceutical Anabolic Catalyst:
FUSIL® (Fermented, Ultra-Soluble L-Leucine)is the driving force behind EVP's powerhouse formula. It is high-grade, fermented L-Leucine made ultra soluble for maximum absorption. FUSIL is the single ingredient that sets EVP apart from other pre-workout formulas. FUSIL is ONLY available through EVOGEN Nutrition.
L-Leucine is often called "the anabolic trigger" because it stimulates protein and ignites anabolic reactions within the body, accelerating the process of muscle growth and repair. FUSIL is manufactured under a precise, strictly monitored fermentation process to ensure that this ingredient is of the highest quality and purity possible.
2. Nutrient Injection/Volumizing Complex:
EVP contains a precise combination of specific compounds that contribute to intra-cellular fluid shift and cytoplasmic expansion. This specific quad-arginine blend combined with creatine gluconate dramatically increases cell volume and nutrient delivery into the muscle tissue.* Additionally, these substrates facilitate ATP production pathways within the muscle cells, to support and fuel ongoing, intense muscular contractions and delay the onset of muscular fatigue for measurable physical performance enhancement.*
3. Anticatabolic/Recovery Complex:
EVP combines pharmaceutical-grade L Glutamine with Carnosyn® (Beta Alanine), and L-Glutamine AKG to create a synergistic anticatabolic and recovery complex.* L-Glutamine contributes to muscle building and muscle protective processes in several critical ways.* EVP combines a dual-Glutamine blend with the other key components of this complex to yield powerful anticatabolic and immune supporting effects for muscle growth and recovery.*
4. ATP/Cognitive Enhancing Complex:
EVP's ATP/Cognitive Enhancing Complex was specifically formulated to support mental focus, alertness and mind-muscle connection.* EVP does not contain vaso-constrictive stimulants which could inhibit blood flow to muscles and stress the adrenal glands with daily use. This sophisticated neuro-support cocktail may enhance training performance, working in synergy with, rather than antagonistic to, the high-power volumizing, nutrient-driving agents of EVP.
[ Q ] Why do you feel that EVP is the ultimate pre-workout solution?
It's not just what's inside EVP that matters, but beyond that, it's what EVP doesn't contain. As stated previously, besides containing ingredients of the absolute highest quality, potency and solubility found in any sports nutrition product, EVP also contains nothing that would inhibit, counteract or complicate the desired effect of the product - yeilding unparalleled muscle size, plateau-breaking gains in strength and skin-splitting pumps. When it's time to take your training to the next level, its time for EVP.
[ Q ] Is there any other big news about you or the supplement line that you would like to share with us?
We are, in fact, just putting the finishing touches on our post-workout, recovery enhancing formula - due out later this month! It will be called Cell K.E.M.® and it is awesome! We designed Cell K.E.M. to fit, lock-and-key, with EVP, to support the ongoing growth and recovery process initiated by high-intensity training fueled by EVP. Where EVP will allow athletes to take their training to new levels of performance, Cell K.E.M. is designed to ensure that the body is nourished following the most rigorous training programs.
Cell K.E.M. meticulously combines the requisite muscle-building agents in precise ratios designed to trigger anabolism and nourish new cell growth, providing the building blocks needed for cellular reconstruction(muscle hardness) and inducing maximum cytoplasmic expansion(muscle fullness). Cell K.E.M. harnesses the power of key adaptogenic, anti-catabolic and recovery-enhancing agents (muscle recovery) to bring you the most powerful and complete growth-enhancing, mass and recovery catalyst ever formulated. Prepare to bathe in anabolism!
[ Q ] What do you believe are the best and worst things about the supplement industry?
Sports Nutrition is a bold and powerful science, and the ongoing quest to improve human performance is a noble endeavor. There are many dedicated companies out there, leading the way with passion and integrity, pushing the envelope of natural, safe and effective supplementation to enhance athletic performance. Now, more than ever, science is proving that Sports Supplements can safely, effectively up-regulate human performance without the use of harmful or banned substances.
There are also those supplement companies out there who knowingly use ingredients of inferior or questionable quality, in an effort to keep costs down and improve their bottom line. Or, in some cases, throw in "feel good" ingredients, such as strong stimulants or high-dose caffeine, just for that "tweak effect". Less-experienced consumers mistakenly equate a strong stimulant "tweak" effect with a powerful product. This is most often just the opposite, where strong stimulants can actually counteract the desired performance-boosting benefits. And, unfortunately, the body can tell the difference. That's often why in many cases supplements just don't deliver what the ads promise they will. When you use superior quality supplements, on the other hand, you'll know it because you'll feel and see the difference.
