What is Bio-Gro?
Bio-Gro is a true "game-changer" from iSatori. The first to
introduce a new breed of designer supplementation called
Bio-Active Peptides. You can think of Bio-Gro as "fertilizer for
How does Bio-Gro work?
iSatori has custom engineered and patented the first and most
technically advanced, low molecular weight, micro-concentrated
form of Bio-Active Peptides (BAP's) found only in Bio-Gro. Designed to
provide a supra-physiological effect that, once consumed, signals the
body to amplify its natural protein synthesis process, helping you develop
lean muscle 1-3,5,17,18, 20-24,26-29,33,36-39 and recover faster from
What are Bio-Active Peptides?
The engineered Bio-Active Peptides (or BAP's) found only in Bio-Gro use a
patented manufacturing method, whereby cleaved protein fragments are
extracted from the highest grade bovine colostrums, which are then
centrifugated and micro-concentrated to form a low molecular weight, highly bioavailable powder,
yielding an exact concentration of bioactive:
Proline-Rich Peptides (PRP's)
Growth Factors (IgF, TGF beta-2, EGF, PDGF)
Immunoglobulins (IgG, IgA)1,2,5,10
Tested free of banned substances, approved for athletic organizations
Why should I use Bio-Gro?
1. More concentrated. A more concentrated form of Bio-Active Peptides means less out-of-pocket expense for you, compared to regular protein powders. That is because one small scoop (1.5 grams) of Bio-Gro contains the equivalent bio-actives as 25 grams of whey protein concentrate. That makes Bio-Gro nearly half the cost, on a serving-per-serving basis, of regular whey protein powders.
2. More convenient. Unlike bulky tablets and flavored powders, Bio-Gro is an unflavored powder in its raw form that is virtually tasteless. Though it doesn't mix well in plain water, it does mix easily into almost everything else—from your protein shake to pre-workout to amino drink, and even in soft foods like yogurt, cereal, or oatmeal, and more.
3. More scientific research. There are over 32 published clinical studies that back up the suggested benefits of the primary ingredient in Bio-Gro. And more importantly, these studies were conducted mostly on well-trained athletes, participants who traditionally show less positive effects compared to untrained individuals.
4. More expert opinions. There hasn't been a supplement we can think of, to date, that has had more PhD-sports nutrition experts who independently support and validate the science and effects supporting the primary ingredient in Bio-Gro. Including such highly reputable names as Chris Lockwood, PhD; Jeffrey Stout, PhD; Jay Hoffman, PhD; and David Sandler, ABD-PhD.
5. Highest quality and banned-substance tested. Because iSatori controls the domestic source of our ingredient and has engineered the first micro-concentrated, low molecular weight Bio-Active Peptides found in Bio-Gro, you can trust and count on every batch being of the highest quality and consistency; and what's more, each batch is tested and certified free of any banned substances (via Informed Choice™), and is GRAS certified, HALAL, Kosher, and produced in a certified GMP (good manufacturing practice) facility right here in the USA.
Who should use Bio-Gro?
Bio-Gro should be used by anyone who is interested in developing or maintaining more lean body mass1-3,5,17,18, 20-24,26-29,33,36-39 and enhancing recovery from exercise or sport.*4,6,9,15,35 This would include bodybuilders, fitness, figure, or physique competitors; and athletes competing in any sport, whether collegiate, professional, or recreational. Or, anyone who finds it difficult (or too costly) to consume higher amounts of protein in a day and would rather rely on a more concentrated form of the bio-actives the body will use to amplify protein synthesis.*
Can women use Bio-Gro?
Absolutely! Many athletic women already do. Because Bio-Gro contains almost zero calories, zero fat, and zero sugars, it is perfect for dieters or women who are calorie- or carb-conscience yet want the bioactive benefits of protein to help develop and maintain lean body tissue.1-3,5,17,18, 20-24,26-29,33,36-39 And Bio-Gro requires only one tiny scoop (1.5 grams) compared to a large-sized protein shake (25 grams or more), that can leave your stomach feeling full of gas and bloated. What's more, Bio-Gro is derived from a natural source and is safe for anyone to consume.
How do I use Bio-Gro?
Bio-Gro comes in both an unflavored powder and capsules that are easy to use. For the powder, mix 2 – 3 servings twice daily in liquid such as a protein shake, pre-workout, or amino drink, and thoroughly agitate or blend; or mix with soft foods such as oatmeal, cereal, or yogurt. Or take 5 – 7 capsules with a class of water, amino, pre-workout, or protein shake. Bio-Gro can be taken anytime with or without food.
What does Bio-Gro taste like?
Bio-Gro is virtually tasteless and can be mixed in just about any drink (other than plain water) or soft food and taken with or without food.
What can I expect from using it?
Bio-Gro was designed to augment an important physiological function to a greater capacity than it can on its own (no matter how much protein or aminos you consume). It does this by assisting your body to signal and accelerate the rate at which it processes the building and re-building of muscle tissue, called protein synthesis. 1-3,5,17,18, 20-24,26-29,33,36-39*
By doing so, you can develop lean body mass at a faster rate, more efficiently.* Additionally, and equally important, you should notice a reduction in recovery time after bouts of intense exercise or weight training. 4,6,9,15,35*
Therefore, Bio-Gro should be used daily and consistently over time, just as you would food or other sources of protein. And better yet, so far as the anecdotal reports suggests, the more you use, the better and more profound its effects (Chart, Step 1 (Consume Bio-Gro), Step 2 (Train hard), Step 3 (consume adequate protein), Step 4 develop lean muscle and reduce recovery time)*
Are there any scientific studies to support Bio-Gro?
Yes. To date, there are over 32 clinical studies, conducted from 1990-2011, which suggest the positive effects of the primary ingredient inside Bio-Gro, including supporting lean body mass, 1-3,5,17,18, 20-24,26-29,33,36-39 performance,7,10,12,19,25,34 recovery, 4,6,9,15, 35 strength,8 and immune function, 13,14 and more are currently underway.*
Are there any banned substances in Bio-Gro?
No. Bio-Gro's primary ingredient is sourced locally, produced in GMP-certified facility, and every batch is tested and certified free of any banned substance. These tests are available upon request and performed by Informed Choice™ and/or HFL Sport Science. Bio-Gro complies with all collegiate and athletic organizations' nutritional requirements.
