Recover. Repair. Rebuild.*

Post Protocol has been scientifically formulated to maximize muscle recovery, allowing you to get back in the gym faster than ever.* With clinical dosages of highly targeted ingredients, you get everything you need and nothing you don't.

MEGA-DOSED FOR MEGA-RECOVERY WITH 10 GRAMS OF BCAAS*

Post Protocol contains a proven 3:1:1 blend of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), arguably the 3 most important aminos for muscle recovery, repair, and growth support.* Post Protocol helps decrease muscle soreness, which is vital for maximizing results.*

BCAAs provide metabolic energy while you train, and they serve an important function in muscle growth. Leucine in particular has been suggested to play the most critical role in stimulating muscle-protein synthesis through multiple mechanisms of action, including the stimulation of protein-synthesis regulators like mTor and P13K.*

The following study indicates that BCAAs administered before and after resistance training reduce muscle damage and accelerate recovery in resistance-trained individuals.* This suggests that BCAAs provide greater bioavailability of substrate to improve protein synthesis, thereby lessening the extent of secondary muscle damage associated with strenuous resistance exercise.

Exercise-induced muscle damage is reduced in resistance-trained males by branched-chain amino acids in a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study.*

Delayed onset muscle soreness before and up to 96h after the damaging bout of exercise denotes a significant group effect.* Values are means ± SD;N=12.

Maximal voluntary force before and up to 96 hr after the damaging bout of exercise denotes a significant group effect.* Values are means ± SD;N=12. J Int Soc Sports Nutr. 2012; 9: 20.

FASTER RECOVERY WITH GLUTAMINE*

Post Protocol also contains free-form glutamine, an amino acid that can reduce muscle breakdown and help support healthy immune system function.*

Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, comprising more than 60% of the free amino acid pool in skeletal muscle and greater than 20% of total circulating amino acids.

Glutamine has been suggested to:

  • Support recovery from exercise*
  • Reduce impact of overtraining*
  • Promote muscle mass and strength*
  • Reduce exercise-induced muscle damage*
  • Reduce BCAA and protein catabolism*
  • Stimulate protein synthesis*
  • Promote muscle cell volume*
  • Support muscle glycogen storage*
  • Support electrolyte levels*
  • Support immune system function*

CARNIPURE™ (L-CARNITINE L-TARTRATE) PROMOTES RECOVERY*

Studies suggest that L-carnitine tartrate supplementation supports recovery after exercise.* Supplementation with L-carnitine tartrate provokes an increase in muscle oxygen consumption, providing a potential mechanism for reduced hypoxic stress following resistance exercise.*

L-Carnitine Tartrate Supplementation Improves Muscle Recovery:

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT BY USING CARNIPURE™

(L-CARNITINE L-TARTRATE):

  • Better recovery from exercise*
  • Decrease in exercise-induced muscle damage*
  • Decrease in muscle soreness*
  • Antioxidant effects*
  • Improved flow-mediated dilation*
  • Increased androgen receptors*
  • Increase fat oxidation*

EXERCISE AND RECOVERY

Studies suggest that Carnipure supplementation supports recovery after exercise.* Researchers observed a decrease in the production of free radicals, less tissue damage, and reduced muscle soreness after exercise in recreationally-trained athletes following 3 weeks of Carnipure supplementation. These effects were found to be dose dependent, present both in young and old, male and female subjects. Supplementation with Carnipure™ induces an increase in muscle oxygen consumption, providing a potential mechanism for reduced hypoxic stress following resistance exercise.*

Three weeks of supplementation has been suggested to reduce muscle damage produced by an acute bout of high-intensity resistance exercise in two crossover, placebo-controlled trials—the "gold standard" in terms of clinical trials.*

According to the investigators, less muscle damage may have resulted in more hormonal receptors available for binding interactions with anabolic hormones, a circumstance that may explain the reduced progression of muscle damage (measured by MRI) in the recovery days following RE.* With more hormonal receptors available for binding interactions with anabolic hormones, muscle growth potential is also increased.

As a consequence, L-Carnitine L-Tartrate may enhance testosterone uptake via less muscle damage and increased availability of androgen receptors, and not via direct stimulation of testosterone secretion (in other words, LCLT is not a testosterone-enhancing supplement).*

L-Carnitine's role in exercise recovery*

CREATINE HCL

Creatine HCL - the next-generation creatine. Creatine Hydrochloride, or simply Creatine HCL, is creatine attached to hydrochloric acid. Due to its rate of absorption, Creatine HCL allows for smaller dosing. It also prevents the stomach discomfort and water retention under the skin experienced by some users of creatine monohydrate.

KSM-66® ASHWAGANDHA

Ashwagandha has been clinically suggested to:

  • Increase endurance and strength*
  • support a healthy stress response*
  • Enhance memory and cognition*

Recent scientific research suggests that ashwagandha promotes health, well being and levels of physical performance. It enhances the user's ability to cope with stressful situations by promoting faster corticosteroid release and rapid return to normal.

KSM-66 Ashwagandha is the perfect non-hormonal anabolic sport supplemental ingredient and boasts ground-breaking health benefits:

  • It helps improve the rate of recovery following strenuous exercise.*
  • It enhances energy and endurance.*
  • It assists muscle recovery.*
  • may help support mental function, alertness and memory.*
  • It may improve oxygen usage.*
  • It helps support a healthy stress response.*

Today, there are more than 50 studies specifically on tart cherries and scientists continue to uncover new and important benefits of today's hottest Super Fruit. Tart cherries could help athletes reduce muscle damage to recover faster from a tough workout, according to a growing body of research.*

Tart cherries are packed with powerful antioxidants. In fact, they have among the highest levels of antioxidants of other super foods. Tart cherries ranked 14 in the top 50 foods for highest antioxidant content per serving size - surpassing well-known leaders such as red wine, prunes, dark chocolate and orange juice, according to one recent study.

Anthocyanins are the key antioxidant compounds in cherries. Along with providing the bright red pigment to tart cherries, these phytonutrients have been specifically linked to high antioxidant capacity.*

Tart cherries are also sources of other phenolic compounds, such as gallic acid, p-coumaric acid, kaempferol, and quercetin, all of which are potent antioxidants.*

See how other fruits match up to cherries' powerful Phytonutrient Profile.

TASTE THE DIFFERENCE

All of the recovery nutrition found in Post Protocol is useless if you can't bear to drink it. With all the ingredients included in Post Protocol at clinical doses, it was not easy to flavor. We partnered with the industry's leading flavor houses to create an amazing taste, and we weren't satisfied until we got it just right. You'll love the flavor and how easily Post Protocol mixes.

100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE

Post Protocol is backed by Bodybuilding.com's 100% money-back guarantee. We know that Post Protocol is the best post-workout supplement on the market. If you don't agree with us, just return your bottle, and we will give you your money back. It's as simple as that.
