Q: Hey Big Frank, I read your article about NVIE products and they seem pretty good. I like the third party testing part. So at least what they say is in the product is really in the product. I guess my question is pretty strange and I don’t know if it will make sense, but here it goes… Ok Nitric? I get it. Vascularity and pumps. Ok. TX3 natural testosterone booster. NOT a replacement, but helps to stimulate your own production and prevents the conversion to estrogen and DHT. Ok… sounds ok. Naturally we only produce SO much test, SO I bet this product would be EVEN MORE beneficial for people who ARE taking testosterone as a way to prevent conversion. Kre8, ok creatine, we get the benefits of that. It’s been around a while. Can improve performance, and strength when taking due to extra intake of cellular fluid. The pre and post…. got it. Help you get through workouts. I get it all, and I am sure they are good products. BUT most are geared toward helping with performance which could be in or out of the gym. SO athlete based. What I wan’t to know is if NVIE does or plans to put out a product that is specifically geared toward helping me to get bigger. I KNOW that sounds juvenile, but it is a legitimate question. I am not an uneducated person. I have done my research. I also know that there is a TON of false advertisement and all the garbage out there with their false claims, I just laugh at since you have already pointed out that supplements are not regulated by our government. SO since YOU trust and believe in NVIE products, and since you are well known for your honesty, I am asking flat out of there is a product they plan to come out with that will help be build muscle naturally without having to resort to steroids. Let me add… if they were legal? I would already be taking them. But they aren’t and like you have written before, you have to weigh your plusses and minuses, and it just isn’t worth it for me to take that chance. I really appreciate it Big Man, and want to let you know that you have a ton of fans that you probably didn’t even know you have! No matter what you do or where you go, we will be following and taking your advice! -Paul T., Omaha, Nebraska.
A: First my friend, let me thank you for your kind words. And I can tell that you have been reading what I write by saying that people will continue to follow me since I am currently expanding both myself into other industries and helping to expand the products that NVIE makes. WHY? Because I believe in them. And you are absolutely correct! They ARE perfect for performance! And I will answer your question, but let me start by saying that it is performance that breaks down the muscle tissue that causes muscle growth. You brought up people who take steroids. People have this false assumption that people can take steroids and do less work. Um… no. Steroids WORK because they allow the body to assimilate more protein and provide a faster recovery time. The guys who take steroids because they are lazy are usually the puffy, water retentive puff balls in the back of the gym yelling and screaming.
Most of my clients are natural, so when I design programs for them, it is usually LESS that what they thought I would have them do. That is because the body can only handle so much naturally. Just like the protein that they take in may be less than what they read Mr. Olympia was taking. Uh… well yeah… he was able to take in more protein for a reason. SO… don’t read the diets in the bodybuilding magazines and assume you can eat 7,000 calories and look good.
Ok also, I just want to touch on something. The products that you mentioned. YES they do what you wrote AND so much more, BUT what you are missing is that they work synergistically together and with your training. Volumized muscle, and intake of nutrients INTO that muscle results in proper breakdown and regrowth. EVERY product that NVIE makes is specifically designed to work together. NOT ONLY for performance, BUT ALSO for growth! BUT I think I know what you are getting at. You see these advertisements for the BS prohormones and the other garbage out there making claims to be a replacement for steroids. That is what you are looking for. What will significantly increase your muscle growth. I understand and I have good news.
When I make a claim or say something, I back it up… ALWAYS! SO along with this article I will also present a report. BUT the product that you are looking for is GLUTA PRO. GLUTA PRO combines three cutting edge Glutamine based compounds to create this hardcore training trifecta that can trigger growth hormone production by as much as 400%–allowing you to make plateaus a thing of the past. GLUTA PRO induces the repair cycle inside the muscle cell and keeps catabolism at bay with a revolutionary hardcore scientific balance of Glutamine Ethyl Ester, L-Glutamine, and Glutamine AKG to help you stay anabolic all day long–increasing muscle definition, athletic performance and muscle recovery.
You may ask, How does Glutamine Ethyl Work? Glutamine Ethyl Ester works in the same way as regular L-Glutamine as far as preventing catabolism and inducing growth hormone but Glutamine Ethyl Ester is far superior to regular L-Glutamine supplements. Glutamine Ethyl Ester is more specifically Glutamine with an ester (ethyl) attached to it through a process known as esterification. By reacting Glutamine with carboxylic acid and alcohol, the Glutamine becomes esterified. This esterification makes Glutamine more lipophilic or fat soluble. The more fat soluble the Glutamine, the more readily it is absorbed by the body. This process of esterification makes Glutamine Ethyl Ester one of the most effective forms of Glutamine ever developed.
Glutamine is the most common amino acid found in your muscles – over 61% of skeletal muscle is Glutamine. Glutamine consists of 19% nitrogen, making it the primary transporter of nitrogen into your muscle cells. Researchers are suggesting that Glutamine is the most important amino acid to the bodybuilder. It provides a component in muscle metabolism and cellular support not shared by any other single amino acid. During intense training, Glutamine levels are greatly depleted in your body, which decreases strength, stamina and recovery. It could take up to 6 days for Glutamine levels to return to normal – and Glutamine plays a key role in protein synthesis. Studies have shown that L-Glutamine supplementation can minimize breakdown of muscle and improve protein metabolism.
L-Glutamine supplementation promotes a positive nitrogen balance and prevents the loss of muscle. Recent studies have shown that taking just 2 grams of L-Glutamine can increase growth hormone levels by 400%. This increase helps metabolize body fat and support new muscle growth. Glutamine’s anti-catabolism ability prevents the breakdown of your muscles. It prevents your muscle from being catabolized (eaten up) in order to provide Glutamine for other cells in the body.
Sounds great I know. But after reading your letter, I know what you want. You want me to flat out SAY that this is a replacement for steroids. I will do even better than that! I WILL PROVE it! The lab report I have included shows AND Proves that 400mg of MGG daily outperforms a 2000mcg dose of Test daily in building lean muscle mass! There is just one small detail you may be interested in knowing… NVIE puts THREE TIMES that amount in GLUTA PRO at 1250mg.
Non believers will be saying that there is no way the product can work as a drug because if it worked as a drug, it would be pulled from shelves like ephedrine was. THAT my friend is false marketing and false propaganda. There is one reason that a supplement would get pulled from shelves! IF it is deemed UNSAFE! Well… GLUTA PRO and the other NVIE supplements will not be taken off the shelves because not only do they perform more research than any other company, but they pay for third party testing to insure quality and safety, AND ALL NVIE PRODUCTS ARE PHARMACEUTICAL GRADE!
