Product Overview

POST-WORKOUT
MUSCLE GROWTH PROMOTER*

NEW & IMPROVED DARK MATTER

The best just got better! There are multiple aspects of post-workout nutrition that must be addressed after a high intensity training session for complete muscular and systemic recovery. With each workout, you are breaking down the muscle fibers within the muscle’s cells, leaving your body in an increased catabolic state. If you don’t provide your body with the proper nutrients and essential amino acids that it needs to recover, it will begin to feed on itself, thus negatively affecting your muscle growth. The faster you can get critical nutrients into your bloodstream and muscle, the better.

Sports nutrition experts and bodybuilders have long known that the most critical time to stimulate muscle growth is through nutritional interfusion post-workout. They refer to the 1-hour period immediately after training as the “Anabolic Window.” New and improved DARK MATTER provides you with the opportunity to improve the optimization this “window of muscle growth” by providing you with the proper nutrients to support anabolic growth and recovery.* High-performance athletes and bodybuilders alike will benefit from the anabolic/anti-catabolic support benefits of DARK MATTER.*

Don’t waste another workout if you want to start gaining serious size and strength. New and improved DARK MATTER employs new technologies and compounds that allow for super-fast nutrient uptake and helps support a synergistic anabolic reaction during which insulin levels peak with amino acid, creatine and glycogen transport at the “Anabolic Axis.”* Chug down DARK MATTER immediately after every workout and introduce your muscles to a new frontier of hyper-growth and recovery support.*

  • Fast Absorption*
  • Stimulates Protein Synthesis*
  • Significantly Spikes Insulin and Replenishes Glycogen*

NEW & IMPROVED
DARK MATTER

“DARK MATTER has always been the staple of my post-workout nutrition to help me grow and recover from every training session. The new and improved formula is better than ever. I can feel it working right after my workouts!”
VICTOR MARTINEZ

Every Workout Ends with DARK MATTER . . .

DARK MATTER is the result of the most recent research on optimizing the post-workout anabolic window to help support greater muscle gains and faster recovery.* Research suggests the importance of particular supplementation for creating the proper post-workout environment of increasing protein synthesis, spiking insulin, restoring ATP and replenishing glycogen for supporting muscle growth, performance and recovery.* Drinking DARK MATTER immediately after your workout may help promote an anabolic muscle building environment so you can get the most out of your workouts and be your best.*

Enter the ANABOLIC AXIS Timed Nutrient Infusion Allows for Micro-Nutrient Delivery of New Muscle Building Support Compounds at the Anabolic Axis to Promote Powerful Anabolic Synergistic Reaction!*

DARK MATTER provides the powerful nutritional tools you need to stimulate post-workout muscle growth during the precise time known as the Anabolic Axis.* This is the time and point at which insulin levels simultaneously peak with amino acids, creatine and glycogen transport into muscle tissue during the critical 1 hour period immediately after your workout.*

ProSYNTHAGEN Peptide: Supports Protein Synthesis and Spikes Insulin*

ProSYNTHAGEN Peptide is a research based combination of oligopeptides, insulinotropic aminos and BCAAs in a powerful leucine loaded 10:1:1 ratio, plus a concentrated source of glutamine peptides. Research suggests that this combination of amino acids has powerful effects on supporting protein synthesis, the release of insulin and replenishment of glutamine stores in the muscle.* Additionally, ProSYNTHAGEN Peptide is fine-tuned with a High Velocity Dual Portal Transport for even faster and greater intestinal uptake by combining powerful insulinotropic and anabolic free form aminos with oligopeptides.* These unique characteristics help give ProSYNTHAGEN Peptide a powerful anabolic support effect, which may help promote enhanced muscle building and recovery.*

GLYCOSACCHARIDE-FST: Amplifies Anabolic Support Actions of Insulin and Replenishes Glycogen*

GLYCOSACCHARIDE-FST is an advanced carbohydrate matrix composed of three functional saccharides to help optimize the post-workout anabolic actions of insulin and reload your muscles with glycogen.* This advanced carb matrix of homo-polysaccharide (derived from potato), polysaccharide (derived from low viscosity, high molecular weight osmotic waxy maize starch) and oligosaccharide (derived from Maltoplex-18 glucose polymers) allows for fast gastric emptying, a quick, powerful spike in insulin and enhanced glycogen replenishment support.* GLYCOSACCHARIDE-FST’s carb matrix was scientifically developed to deliver a nutrient infusion to help elicit a greater insulin response and open the anabolic window faster and keep it open longer.* To further promote its anabolic effects, DARK MATTER contains a blend of 4-hydroxyisoleucine, chromium picolinate and guanidnopropionic acid to amplify and help modulate insulin – which may help improve insulin signaling for increased anabolic action, nutrient transport, protein synthesis, creatine/nutrient uptake and glycogen replenishment.*

HydroSIZE: Multi-Phase Creatine Transport & Cell Volumizing Matrix*

To complete our optimal post-workout anabolic infusion, MHP’s research team developed HydroSIZE, which is a multi-source creatine/glycerol complex to support enhanced muscle volumizing and bioenergetic creatine loading into muscle tissue.* This complex provides the precise amount of creatine in the form of creatine monohydrate, Creatine Magnapower® (as creatine magnesium chelate) and creatine gluconate. This blend is transported in tandem with amino acids and glycogen into muscle tissue during peaks in insulin for the replenishment of ATP and increased muscle cell volumizing.*

MHP what have you done! They completely ruined the great, original Dark Matter with some strange new formulation. After customer complaints, they've tried to return to what they're calling the original but it is definitely NOT the original (the newest version has a yellow neckband around the jug). The taste and consistency are more like the original: not as good, but not terrible. The new stuff makes you poop green for at least a day though. The original didn't. No big deal. But what IS a big deal: the original had 10-12 grams of good protein per serving. The newest version has 2-4 grams of PEA CONCENTRATE with a touch of whey. So you've basically got a good post-workout carb powder now, without any protein at all. I add a scoop of vanilla whey isolate to it, but I won't be ordering this product again. It's definitely not a return to the original formula no matter how they try to spin it.

I'm writing this with the hope that another negative review will help spur MHP to bring back the old formula. I would immediately change my rating to 10/10 in both overall and taste ratings if the old formula returned. The taste was great, with a blueberry Smartie kind of taste and a unique texture. I recovered from workouts nicely, nicely enough that I didn't think twice about making a somewhat expensive product a staple supplement.

First let me address the fact that this is indeed not as good as the original formula. However, it is still an incredible product. This is not a protein supplement so those people who have given it bad ratings for that are naive. The texture is awesome too. Kind of like a liquified jello. This supplement is right up there with afterglow, aftershock, torrent and the original dark matter. I love it. Price is not ideal but I will buy again

This post workout has helped tremendously with recovery times and soreness, I couldn't imagine trying anything different anytime soon. I do have to comment on the flavor though..my first bottle was rather hard to stomach but once I got used to it I really think I like it best out of all my supplement flavors. Give it time to work and let you grow after those intense workouts and see what you think of the flavor when you see the results. It's working for me!

This product worked great for my post work out drink. The typical soreness I have the morning after an intense workout was drastically reduced. This also gave me energy after the workout to finish up my day without dragging my feet any. The drink itself is somewhat thick which seemed to be slightly filling after the workout also. I recommend trying this product, you wont be disappointed!
