Ever see a volcano explode–the thundering, awe-inspiring surge of raw power that erupts from the deepest bowels of the earth? Maybe you know what we’re talking about. Maybe on some rare days, you were absolutely on and you felt like you could train all night. Raw power seemed to well up from deep inside you. Well, you want that kind of feeling all the time? Now you can, because you’ve got Lava from Universal Nutrition.
Without a doubt, the single most important “meal” comes immediately after an intense workout. You need carbs immediately, as glycogen is used up to fuel your weight training. With Lava, you’re not just getting any old carbs, but GlycoCarbs (our exclusive formulation of dextrose, glucose polymers, and maltodextrin). There’s no fructose, sucrose, or other inferior sugars. But a post-training shake needs more than just carbs.
A great post-training shake also needs quality protein. With Lava, you get 32g of pure protein in the form of ultrafiltrated whey protein along with 32g of carbs. Universal Nutrition's premium protein is rich in whey peptides, alpha lactalbumin, immunoglobulins, glycomacropeptides (GMPs), bovine serum albumin (BSA), lactoperoxidase, and lactoferrin. Protein is needed after exercise to kick start protein synthesis and rebuild damaged muscles. To this basic formula, we’ve added key vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, and phosphate co-factors such as chromium picolinate, vitamins C and E, potassium, magnesium, and phosphorous, to name a few. But what lies at the heart of Lava's real power is this: 5500mg of pure Creapure™ creatine monohydrate, 2500mg of L-glutamine, and over 1000mg of L-taurine. This potent trio makes Lava the undisputed king of all post-training shakes.
While creatine monohydrate has been clinically proven to boost the ergogenic and anabolic drives, L-glutamine and L-taurine can help your body recover after a tough workout. While Lava is a great post-training shake, it’s also an ideal creatine-booster. Most creatine boosters use sugar to increase insulin and drive creatine into muscles. While this strategy works, many athletes don’t need extra sugar, especially if they’re preparing for a show. Studies now prove that a combination of carbs and protein can work just as well to boost creatine. One such study (J Appl Physiol 2000 89:1165-1171) reported that taking 5g of creatine with a 1:1 ratio of carbs to protein could produce the same results as taking 5g with 96g of carbs alone. So if you want results that can be proven in a scientific lab, turn to Lava.
