Everything your muscles crave – In one scoop.
Post-Factor™ is much more than a protein shake. It’s a fortified, carbohydrate and antioxidant-filled, fast-acting protein shake designed specifically to be taken after your next grueling workout.* Oh yeah, it also comes with our trademarked XD Delivery system.
Let’s face it, after your workout your blood is in your muscles, not your brain. The last thing you need to be worrying about is a food scale and a tackle box of capsules. Post-Factor™ is the only simple one-scoop solution formulated to help ensure your muscles benefit from your workout the way you intended.
Ice baths are cold – Post-Factor™ is cool.
Sure, suffering through an ice-bath for rapid recovery looks manly – but what if you could achieve better results, without freezing in a tub for 45 minutes?
Post-Factor™ accelerates your recovery with L-Carnitine-L-Tartrate (LCLT) and CherryPURE®, both backed by human research to reduce muscle soreness, damage, and inflammation.*
Studies have shown that LCLT supplementation by men, during resistance training, resulted in 59% less muscle damage.* CherryPURE® studies have shown a lower perception of soreness up to 48 hours after a workout.
Broken down for you.
The building blocks of new muscle are amino acids. Protein has them. Post-Factor™ has it. See the pattern here?
Each Post-Factor™ serving contains 27 grams of the most advanced whey protein ever developed — hydrolyzed whey protein isolate.* Hydrolyzing whey protein isolates breaks the larger proteins into smaller pieces. These ultra-pure whey isolates are absorbed by your body much faster than non-hydrolyzed isolates, allowing your muscles to begin recovery significantly sooner.*
Post-Factor’s hydrolyzed whey protein isolate is also the cleanest protein available – with no sugar, no fat, and no lactose – it’s got everything your muscles need – and nothing they don’t.*
370% better recovery.
When you workout, you deplete muscle glycogen (the storage form of carbohydrates). Glycogen is your muscle’s primary fuel for energy production. Feeding your muscles with carbohydrates post-workout is crucial. Moreover, the addition of hydrolyzed protein proves the perfect anabolic environment to maximize muscle recovery.
But what if you could increase the amount of glycogen your muscles absorbed?
ActiGin™, a patented sports nutrition ingredient with a published human clinical trial, loads your muscles with up to 370% more glycogen.* It also increases muscle energy by up to 22% and decreases oxidative inflammation by as much as 69% after high intensity exercise.* The presence of ActiGin™ in Post-Factor™ means even faster recovery and even more fuel for your muscles.*
And thanks to our unmatched quality assurance practices, you can be sure that every serving of Post-Factor™ contains a clinically validated dose of ActiGin™ and your ever-essential fast-acting carbohydrates.*
Stop the damage – Antioxidants.
It’s no secret: hard-exercise causes oxidative damage to your muscle tissue – blunting your strenuous efforts.
Fortunately, each serving of Post-Factor™ contains more than 100% of the recommended daily intake of Vitamins C & E; two powerful antioxidants that help reduce oxidative damage.*
Your after-workout dessert.
So what exactly does a groundbreaking rapid-recovery shake taste like? Well, when the flavor team has over 25 years of experience, the answer is “pretty darn good.”
Reward your post-workout taste buds with Key Lime Pie, Blueberry Pomegranate, and Chocolate Truffle. Your mouth, and your muscles will thank you for it.
The secret: The science.
The core ingredients in Post-Factor are clinically validated on human test subjects. This is extremely important because many companies mislead you by promising results reflective only of animal research. What’s worse, they rarely use the clinically required dose in their formulas. They’re testing on animals and they’re pulling the wool over your eyes.
Post-Factor does neither of the two, and human clinical studies on its core ingredients have been shown to:
- Increase muscle protein synthesis
- Decrease muscle protein breakdown
- Increase glycogen recovery by 370%
- Increase insulin sensitivity
- Reduce muscle damage by 59%
- Reduce lipid peroxidation
- Reduce post-exercise serum CK levels by 69%
- Reduce post-exercise serum myoglobin levels
- Reduce the perception of soreness for up to 48 hours post exercise
- Decrease chronic cortisol elevation
- Decrease inflammatory markers such as IL-6 and MDA
- Reduce reactive oxygen species
Real products from real people.
“The couple of hours immediately post-exercise are when muscles are the most sensitive for growth. However, exercise alone in a fasted state leaves your muscles in constant catabolism until your next meal. Your post-exercise meal is a critical component to how your muscles will respond to the exercise. Post-Factor™ takes all the guess work out and provides only the best ingredients to maximize your muscle growth and recovery.”
