THE SCIENCE BEHIND SUB•Q
SUB•Q is designed to retain your hard-earned muscle while incinerating body fat, including subcutaneous fat – making your skin paper-thin. To do this, SUB•Q stimulates cellular energy production1 and norepinephrine release,2 and this increases your metabolic rate and the number of calories that you burn from fat. By increasing your metabolic rate, you incinerate existing body and subcutaneous fat, and continuing to take SUB•Q helps you keep it off for good. By maintaining a positive nitrogen balance, promoting muscle sparing3 and promoting muscle growth,4,5 SUB•Q keeps your metabolism high, accelerates your recovery time and allows you to exercise with increased frequency. This all amounts to more calorie burning and the incineration of fat. Also, to really thin your skin, SUB•Q contains strong diuretic properties that eliminates excess water from underneath your skin.6 This is a bodybuilding must and will really make your muscles “pop.”*
The diagram above illustrates the difference in subcutaneous fat levels before and after the SUB•Q cycle.*
BULLET CAPLET TECHNOLOGY®*
To ensure your results are explosive, SUB•Q’s powerful formula is transported with Bullet Caplet Technology.*
BULLET CAPLET TECHNOLOGY - 3-Stage Disintegration Process
Bullet Caplet Technology is a proprietary innovation exclusive to FUSION BODYBUILDING. What makes this technology unique is its micro-channels. During the disintegration process, these micro-channels are created in the Bullet Caplet structure, and the ingredients in SUB•Q are released from the inside of the caplet to the outside, dissolving it from the center. This allows immediate and accurate dosing, making sure the ingredients work together as designed.*

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is subcutaneous fat?
Subcutaneous fat is the layer of stubborn, milky-white
fat that sits just underneath your skin. This fat layer contains fat cells called adipose cells that sit on top of your muscles and bones, attached to them by connective tissues. As subcutaneous fat increases in quantity, the true shape and definition of your muscles and body is obscured. For men, most subcutaneous fat is stored in the abdominal areas.*
On average, subcutaneous fat accounts for about 3 to 8% of your total body mass and accounts for more than 80% of all fat mass.1*
What is Bullet Caplet Technology®?
SUB•Q utilizes Bullet Caplet Technology to rapidly deliver its advanced ingredients.*
Bullet Caplet Technology is the advanced way to immediately activate the ingredients in SUB•Q by disintegrating the caplet, layer by layer. During the disintegration process, micro-channels are created in the caplet structure, and SUB•Q ingredients are released from the inside of the caplet to the outside, dissolving the caplet from the center.*
Bullet Caplet Technology is powerful and explosive because unlike traditional “slow-dissolve from the outside” caplets that release only the ingredient on the outermost layer, thereby delivering only one ingredient at a time, SUB•Q delivers a constant, steady, even stream of all its fast-acting ingredients at the same time.*
How will I feel on SUB•Q?
SUB•Q contains scientifically proven ingredients and caplet technology that deliver powerful and explosive results – fast! You should feel the results within minutes of your first dose.*
Can I use SUB•Q with other supplements and foods that contain caffeine?
No. We do not recommend that you take this product with anything that contains caffeine. Please read the entire SUB•Q label, including the warnings, and use only as directed.*
Who can use SUB•Q?
You can. SUB•Q goes to work right away and produces powerful, explosive and safe results – fast! Any healthy adult can use SUB•Q to get beyond ripped. As with any diet, exercise or supplement program you should consult a medical professional before you begin. Always read the entire label before using any supplement product, and follow all directions.*
