The long wait is over now as we’ve launched EAA Max -- the best tasting amino acid supplement on the market. EAA Max provides a full essential amino acid profile including a full 5g dose of 2:1:1 BCAAs to support muscle growth, repair, and recovery!* Primeval Labs fans have been clamoring for a comprehensive amino acid supplement for years now, but truth be told, developing the perfect profile (with exceptional flavor) is no small feat.* Sure, it’d be easy to just pump out some under-dosed BCAA-only supplement, but that doesn’t provide everything skeletal muscle tissue with what it needs to effectively synthesize more protein.  The wait is finally over now as Primeval Labs has launched EAA Max -- the best tasting amino acid supplement on the market.* EAA Max provides a complete essential amino acid profile PLUS a full serving of 2:1:1 BCAAs for maximal muscle growth, repair, and recovery!* When Can I Take EAA Max? EAA Max is your all day, every day amino acid supplement. Use it on training days for intra workout fuel, or on non-training days as a way keep a steady supply of essential amino acids pumping into your muscles. Mix a scoop or two into a half gallon water bottle and sip throughout the day.* That’s the great thing about EAA Max it can literally be used ANYTIME, ANYWHERE to support muscle growth and recovery. * Why Choose EAA Max? Typical amino acid supplements only contain the three branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) consisting of Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine. While there’s nothing wrong with BCAA supplements, they simply do not provide the full spectrum of amino acids the body requires for protein synthesis. Think of it like playing a game of football with only 6 of the 11 players -- it just won’t work!* Essential Amino Acids (EAA’s), on the other hand, contain the entire range of amino acids the body demands when it needs to build new tissue. EAAs are called "essential" because the body cannot synthesize them on its own. It MUST obtain them through food or supplements.* Furthermore, most individuals aren’t eating a diverse enough diet, and therefore may be deficient in some EAAs. Plus, some may be eating a well-balanced diet, but may not be absorbing the nutrients properly.* Either way, the end result is EAA deficiency and lack of protein synthesis!* EAAs not only stimulate protein synthesis, but they support energy production and cellular repair.* Additionally, EAAs are needed for complete and healthy digestion and nutrient absorption. EAAs also support each cell’s mitochondria -- the “power plant” of the cell that generates ATP!* EAA Max Ingredients Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) L-Leucine (2,500mg) Leucine is the best known, and well researched, of all the amino acids. It’s also the BCAA to which most of the benefits of BCAA supplementation is attributed. The reason being, is that Leucine as a powerful stimulator of the mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR).*[2] Note: mTOR used to stand for mammalian target of rapamycin until recently mTOR is a cellular signal “highway” that serves as the primary regulator in the body of cell growth, proliferation, survival, and metabolism.[3] Specifically, mTOR1 is the one responsible for muscle protein synthesis (i.e. building muscle). Additionally, leucine is also helpful for preventing muscle protein breakdown (a.k.a. catabolism) -- keeping you anabolic even during periods of fasting!* It’s easy to see why Leucine is widely regarded as the “king” of all amino acids when you put these benefits together.* Stimulates mTOR pathway* Aids muscle protein synthesis* Helps combat muscle protein breakdown* L-Isoleucine (1,250mg) Think of Isoleucine as the weaker “younger brother” of Leucine. It’s a more mild stimulator of muscle protein synthesis -- weaker than Leucine, but stronger than Valine. However, where Isoleucine does stand out is in its ability to increase glucose uptake as well as glucose use during high intensity exercise.*[4] Stimulates muscle protein synthesis* Supports glucose uptake and utilization during exercise* L-Valine (1,250mg) Last of the BCAAs is Valine. Though not studied to the extent of Leucine and Isoleucine in isolation, Valine has been shown to be essential for energy conversion in the body as well as enhance glycogen synthesis in skeletal muscle, preventing catabolism.*[4] While it may seem inconsequential compared to the previous two BCAAs, Valine is the third critical “leg” of the BCAA trifecta that contributes to increased muscle protein synthesis, repair, and growth.* Supports glycogen synthesis in muscle tissue* Supports protein synthesis* Essential Amino Acids L-Lysine HCl (300mg) First up for the Essential Amino Acid portion of EAA Max is L-Lysine. Among Lysine’s major functions, most pertinent to its inclusion here is its role in constructing muscle protein, aiding injury recovery, and supporting calcium absorption.[5]* Additionally, Lysine is also necessary for carnitine production. Carnitine is a substance in the body that supports energy production via fat conversion. It also plays a vital role in synthesis of collagen, skin, cartilage, and tendons.* Supports immune function* Required for carnitine production* Aids fat burning via its role in the synthesis of carnitine* L-Threonine (225mg) Threonine was the final amino acid to be discovered by William C. Rose.[6] It’s an alpha amino acid necessary for the synthesis of proteins in the body. Specifically, threonine is needed for the synthesis of serine and glycine to drive muscle protein synthesis. Additionally, threonine also teams with methionine and aspartic acid to assist the liver with the digestion of fats, also known as lipotropic function.* Supports fat digestion* Required for production of serine and glycine (amino acids involved in protein synthesis)* L-Phenylalanine (200mg) Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid vital to optimal Central Nervous System functioning. It easily crosses the blood-brain barrier where it’s used to create three highly important neurotransmitters that essentially govern the way you interact and view your surroundings.* Furthermore, increased levels of these three neurotransmitters translate to increased energy, mood, and focus -- all critical attributes to maintaining performance when training.* Used in the production of neurotransmitters which enhance motivation and focus* Supports synthesis of catecholamines* L-Tryptophan (50mg) As the sole precursor of serotonin, L-tryptophan is vital to optimal serotonin production on the brain, which is an important factor in cognition, behavior, and overall mood.[7] The problem is that Tryptophan is the amino acid with the lowest concentrations in the body[8], so supplementing with extra ensure you have the adequate raw materials needed for sufficient serotonin production, and don’t have to worry about any bouts of depression!* Interestingly enough, researchers have observed that only the “L” form of amino acids (other forms such as DL-Tryptophan, DL-Phenylalanine, etc. exist) can be used by the body for protein synthesis and cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB). This is why Primeval Labs includes ONLY the L-based amino acid forms in EAA Max -- quality matters!* Serotonin precursor* Supports a healthy mood due to its role in serotonin production* L-Histidine Histidine is a precursor to histamine and an essential component for cognitive functioning and wakefulness.[9] The reason for this is that histidine is needed for the development and maintenance of the myelin sheaths that cover nerve cells and support signal transmission from the brain to all the various component of the body.* Additionally, histidine also forms the crucial second half of the beta alanine + histidine “equation” for carnosine production.[10]* Precursor to histamine, an important neurotransmitter* Supports neurotransmission due to its role in the development of myelin sheath* Works with beta alanine to produce carnosine* L-Methionine Last but not least of the EAA portion of EAA Max is Methionine. Among the numerous critical functions that Methionine is involved in, first among those is its role as a lipotropic, substance that assists the liver with fat digestion. Furthermore, methionine also acts as a precursor for L-Cysteine, a powerful antioxidant in the body which helps defend against free radicals and oxidative stress brought on by intense exercise.[11]* Assists the liver with fat digestion* Precursor to cysteine -- an important antioxidant* Muscle Energy & Nutrient Delivery Cluster Dextrin®(2,000mg) Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin (HBCD) is the ideal carbohydrate you want going into an intense workout. It’s unique molecular structure facilitates rapid digestion with no GI upset or “carb coma” like other functional carbohydrates.* Cluster Dextrin gets immediately transported into muscles where it can provide a reliable source of energy and enhance nutrient delivery, thereby supporting muscle growth and repair. This is the exact carbohydrate you want packaged with your essential amino acids for maximal nutrient transport and absorption!* Fast-digesting, low-glycemic carbohydrate* Supports energy production and exercise performance* Aids glycogen resynthesis* D-Ribose (500mg) D-Ribose is a supplemental variation of ribose, a sugar produced from the digestion of glucose, that combines with adenine to form ATP, the primary energy driver of cellular metabolism. During intense training, ATP is rapidly depleted, which leads to decreased stamina and performance. D-ribose effectively regenerates ATP reserves in the cell following exercise[12,13], which keeps performance at peak levels throughout even the most grueling training sessions. due to the demands placed on the muscle.* Supplemental form of ribose that supports ATP production* Supports exercise performance* May aid intra-set recovery* Dosing Mix one scoop of EAA Max in 10-12oz of cold water and consume during exercise on training days. On non-training days, EAA Max can be consumed throughout the day for improved recovery and muscle building.  Disclaimer: *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.  This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

Athletes know the importance of protein. It provides the building blocks for their muscles, and it’s an absolute must when trying to grow bigger, faster, and stronger.* To ensure optimal daily protein intake, athletes often turn to protein powders, due to their convenience and high protein content, and more often than not these protein powders are made from whey protein.* Derived from cow’s milk, whey protein has been a staple of bodybuilders, athletes, and weekend warriors for decades for a host of reasons: Cost Effective Convenient Portable Shelf stable Delicious Packed with protein Wide array of flavors But, in recent years, protein powders have suffered in terms of quality, taste, and affordability. In an effort to cut costs, manufacturers have opted for lower quality proteins and less-satisfying flavoring technologies. This has left consumers thirsting for a protein that mixes easily, tastes great, doesn’t upset their stomach, and doesn’t break the bank.* The team at Primeval Labs has surveyed the state of protein powders in the industry and heard your cries and sought to develop a protein that was not only of superior quality, but also tasted better than anything ever tasted before.* This quest to develop the ultimate protein powder resulted in the creation of ISOLIT. What is Isolit? ISOLIT is a 100% pure whey protein isolate protein powder that mixes easily and tastes absolutely delicious. ISOLIT is derived from exceptionally high-quality milk, and by using only whey protein isolate, we’ve maximized protein content per scoop while limiting carbohydrates and fat.* Premium Quality Whey Protein Isolate ISOLIT is a delicious-tasting, easy-to-digest whey protein isolate that contains a 100% pure, Triple Cold-Filtered processed whey protein isolate (4x smaller than micro filtered!), yielding a protein with unparalleled absorption and bioavailability!* By using a cold-filtered purification process, isolates may be able to retain a higher concentration of the bioactive fractions naturally occurring in whey protein including*: ß-lactoglobulin α-lactalbumin Bovine serum albumin Immunoglobulins Glycomacropeptide Lactoferrin Lactoperoxidase Cold Pressed Cross Flow Microfiltration is a natural non-chemical manufacturing process which uses high-tech ceramic filters to remove the vast majority of carbohydrates, lactose, and fat from milk.* Unlike ion exchange, which involves the use of harsh chemicals such as hydrochloric acid that degrade the bioactive whey fractions, cold-pressed cross-flow microfiltered whey uses no harsh chemicals or high temperatures, resulting in a whey protein isolate that retains all of the beneficial bioactive fractions of whey while at the same time delivering a powder that is incredibly high in protein and essential minerals, but low in carbs, fat, and lactose.* Why Use Whey Protein Isolate? Hard training athletes know the value of a calorie, and if you’re anything like us, you hate wasting calories on unnecessary carbohydrates and fats lurking in your protein powder. For this exact reason, we’ve selected whey protein isolate.* Whey protein isolate contains a minimum 90% protein by mass, which means there’s virtually no room left for carbohydrates, lactose, or fat. Typical bargain bin protein powders you’ll find on the market use the cheaper, less refined whey protein concentrate, which is rich in various immunoglobulins and lactoferrins, but suffers from a lack of standardization in quality.* You see, whey protein concentrate can range anywhere from 35-80% protein by weight depending on what quality a particular manufacturer ends up using. Even worse, companies aren’t required to list which grade of whey protein concentrate they use in their protein, which means you could only be getting about 35% protein by weight in your powder. This also means you’re “economy” protein powder could contain as much as 65% carbohydrates and fats. That’s hardly a “protein powder” in our book.* ISOLIT utilizes whey protein isolate, considered by many to be the purest form of whey protein on the market. Whey Isolate is processed one degree further than whey concentrate to remove fat and lactose, which delivers high protein, low carbohydrate and fat, and no GI upset. *  Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, mix one scoop in 8oz of cold water.

Intracell 7 Black AMINOS - Primeval Labs
Intracell 7 Black
What is Intracell 7 Black? Intracell 7 Black is a complete training fuel for professional and recreational athletes, containing a synergistic matrix of performance-boosting carbohydrates, electrolytes, amino acids, and blood flow enhancers.* Each serving of Intracell 7 Black includes a unique quad carb blend featuring ModCarb, Carb10, Cluster Dextrin, and Palatinose to provide immediate, readily accessible energy for skeletal muscles that aids performance and helps blunt fatigue. * “Conventional” intra workout supplements typically supply a paltry 5g of BCAA alongside a dash of salt and potassium. Intracell 7 Black provides a comprehensive assembly of essential amino acids, electrolytes, carbohydrates, and cell volumizers to fuel your mind and body for maximum performance.*  Intracell 7 Black Ingredients Essential Amino Acids (Including 5g 2:1:1 BCAA) Primeval Labs helped usher in the era of the essential amino acid supplement with the release of EAA Max and its caffeine-fueled brother EAA Max Energy.* The reason for releasing an amino acid supplement that contained more than just the three BCAA (leucine, isoleucine, and valine), is that the body requires adequate amounts of ALL NINE essential amino acids to fuel muscle protein synthesis.* BCAA supplements may “flip the switch” for protein synthesis, but your body needs the other six EAAs to complete muscle building.* There is no time that amino acids are more in demand than during training when muscle tissue is slowly and constantly being broken down rep by rep.* In creating this supreme training fuel, Primeval Labs has included the full spectrum of essential amino acids, including 5g of 2:1:1 BCAA. Specifically, the essential amino acids contained in Intracell 7 Black are: Leucine Isoleucine Valine Lysine Threonine Phenylalanine Tryptophan Histidine Methionine Intracell 7 Black may support training, muscle repair, and growth. Not only does it include amino acids to build lean muscle mass,[1] but, as you’re about to see, it also supplies a synergistic matrix of performance support and fatigue reducers to help you reach new heights of performance in the gym or on the field.* Supplies all nine essential amino acids Stimulates protein synthesis* Supports muscle growth and recovery* Carb10™ Carb10 is an advanced performance carbohydrate developed by sports nutritions ingredient innovators Compound Solutions. Derived from pea starch, Carb10 is a fast-digesting, low glycemic carbohydrate that provides athletes with a source of clean, sustained energy ideally suited for the physical demands of intense training.* Unlike maltodextrin-based intra workout carbohydrates, Carb10 won’t spike insulin or play havoc with blood sugar levels. In fact, testing shows that Carb10 delivers an 82% lower insulin response and 27% lower blood-sugar response compared to maltodextrin-based options.*[2] Lastly, Carb10 won’t leave you feeling heavy or sluggish thanks to its fast gastric-emptying and low osmolality. This also helps avoid the uncomfortable bloating frequently experienced with other peri workout carb sources.* Fast-digeting carbohdyrate derived from pea starch* Low glycemic* Does not spike insulin or blood sugar* Palatinose™ Derived from beet sugar, Palatinose is a low glycemic form of sucrose this is roughly 50% as sweet as conventional sucrose, but won’t spike blood glucose levels and insulin in the way that pure sucrose does.*[3] Where Palatinose really sets itself apart from other common intra workout carbohydrates, such as maltodextrin or dextrose, is that it enhances fat oxidation during intense exercise.[4] This means that your body burns a greater percentage of fat for fuel during training, sparing its glycogen stores for later on in the workout when maximum effort is needed.* One other important thing to note is that Palatinose also helps athletes avoid post-exercise hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) that can occur post-workout when blood sugar stores are extremely low.*[5] Rapid-digesting, low GI carbohydrate* Supports enhanced fat oxidation during exercise* ModCarb® ModCarb is a revolutionary carbohydrate source for athletes derived from 6 organically-grown whole grains, including amaranth, oats, buckwheat, millet, chia, and quinoa.* This unique blend of complex-carbohydrate foods provides athletes with a type of “slow burn” fuel that helps ensure stable blood sugar and energy levels during training, extending performance, and preventing the inevitable “sugar crash” that accompanies high-glycemic carbohydrates.* ModCarb is also rich in beta-glucan, which has been shown in research to improve immune function and lipid profiles (cholesterol).*[6,7] Derived from whole food sources* Provides "slow burning" energy* Rich in beta-glucans* Cluster Dextrin® The final carbohydrate contained in Intracell 7 Black is the incredibly popular Cluster Dextrin (highly branched cyclic dextrin). SImilar to the other carbs included in the Carbohydrate Blend, Cluster Dextrin has a low osmolality and high molecular weight allowing it to be rapidly digested, yet easy on the stomach.*[8] This makes Cluster Dextrin an ideal source of energy for your muscles during training as it provides the rapid infusion of glucose they need without leaving you feeling heavy, sluggish, or bloated. Exercise research using Cluster Dextrin demonstrates it boosts performance, reduces perceived exertion, and speeds recovery.*[9,10] Thanks to its rapid uptake by skeletal muscles, it’s also useful post workout for quickly replenishing muscle glycogen and helping reduce the onset of muscle soreness.* fast-digesting carbohydrate* Supports energy production and workout performance* Aids glycogen resynthesis* L-Taurine Taurine is a versatile amino acid affecting multiple systems in the body, including the central nervous system, cardiovascular system, and skeletal muscle system. It readily crosses the blood-brain barrier where it acts on the GABA receptors of the brain.*[11] This helps keep athletes calm, cool, and collected during intense workouts when stress levels are at an all-time high.* Additionally, taurine also supports and enhances cellular hydration due to its properties as an osmolyte in skeletal muscle tissue. This helps avoid dehydration, and sustain a high level of performance.* Other research also indicates that supplementation with taurine improves performance and increases fat oxidation by as much as 16%.*[12]   Supports increased performance and fat oxidation* Enhances cellular hydration* Modulates GABA receptors in the brain* GlycerSize™ Glycerol is an ingredient synonymous with hydration, cell volumization, and endurance. IT’s been used for years and years by athletes looking to avoid the dehydrating effects of exercise all the while maintaining a high level of performance.* Unfortunately, much of the previous forms of glycerol suffered from poor shelf stability and mixability resulting in chunks of solidified powder in supplement tubs (rendering them useless) or gobs of undissolved powder stuck to the sides of shaker cups.* Recently though, a novel form of glycerol supplement entered the market in Glycersize. This high-yield form of glycerol supplies 65% glycerol by mass along with improved taste, shelf-stability, and mixability compared to yesteryear’s glycerol supplement.* GlycerSize may help enhance cellular hydration, promoting greater endurance, less fatigue, and better “water-based” pumps and muscle fullness.* high yield form of glycerol offering improved stability and mixability* Enhances cellular hydration and muscle fullness* Promotes endurance and helps resist fatigue* VasoDrive-AP™ VasoDrive-AP (AmealPeptide®) is a patented, proprietary ingredient derived from casein included for its ability to enhance blood flow. Composed of di- and tri-peptides, VasoDrive-AP increases blood flow and promotes cardiovascular health via inhibition of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE).*[15,16]ACE is a devious little enzyme in endothelial cells that causes blood vessels to constrict, reducing blood flow, nutrient delivery, and energy production. VasoDrive-AP has been shown to inhibit ACE resulting in superior blood flow, improved blood pressure, and better performance.*[17,18,19]  Derived from casein protein* Promotes cardiovascular health and performance* Supports increased blood flow via ACE inhibition* When Can I Take Intracell 7 Black? Intracell 7 is extremely versatile and can be taken anytime around training -- pre, intra, or post workout.* Pre Workout Take it pre workout alongside Prim-ATP for increased muscle creatine and glycogen storage. Thus, intra-workout carbs (plus creatine) means higher glycogen levels and sustained performance during your workout.* Intracell 7 Black also stacks with any of our stim-based or stim-free pre workouts, including Mega Pre, Mega Pre Black, and Ape Shi*t pre workout. The fast digesting carbohydrates and essential amino acids contained in Intracell 7 Black provide skeletal muscles with readily accessible nutrients that help them to perform optimally in the proceeding training session.* Intra Workout For longer training sessions, Intracell 7 Black provides a way to sustain energy and focus, helping athletes maintain a high level of performance throughout the most arduous of workouts.* Mix up one serving (two scoops) of Intracell 7 Black in your shaker cup and sip in between sets.* Post Workout Immediately after training, muscle fibers are screaming for nutrition. Intracell 7 supplies fast-digesting carbohydrates and essential amino acids to replenish depleted muscle glycogen and kickstart the muscle repair and recovery process. The addition of VasoDrive-AP in Intracell 7 Black supports enhanced blood flow, accelerating nutrient uptake and recovery from exercise.* Disclaimer: *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.  This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
Primeval Labs WHEY PROTEIN - Primeval Labs
Primeval Labs WHEY
Protein powder is one of the most popular supplements on the market. In fact, it’s one of the first supplements an individual purchases when they embark on their fitness journey.* The reason for this is that consuming sufficient dietary protein is key to achieving just about any performance or physique goal, be it muscle growth, fat loss, body recomposition, or kicking the opponent’s tail on the field of competition.[1,2,3,4] * Recognizing the demand for not only a premium-quality protein powder, but also one that was delicious and affordable, resulted in the creation of Primeval Labs WHEY.* What is WHEY? WHEY is a 100% pure whey protein concentrate (WPC) protein powder that mixes easily and tastes absolutely delicious.*  Our whey protein concentrate is derived from high-quality milk, creating a protein that is both highly bioavailable and naturally rich in branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs).* This makes WHEY an ideal protein supplement for any active individual looking to support the performance, health, and physique goals.* Key Features of WHEY 23 grams protein per serving WHEY uses ONLY 100% WPC-80 Available in three mouth-watering flavors Mixes easily* Supports muscle recovery and growth* Supports weight loss* Naturally rich in BCAAs* Added digestive enzymes* More About Whey Protein Concentrate Whey protein is one of two proteins naturally occurring in cow’s milk.* It accounts for 20% of the total protein in milk, with casein accounting for the remaining 80%.* Whey protein is considered to be one of the best forms of protein due to is high biological value (BV), rivaling that of egg protein -- nature’s “perfect” protein.[5] * In fact, whey has a biological value of 104 -- that’s higher than egg, beef, chicken, or fish protein.[5,6]* Basically, what this means is that whey protein is efficiently digested, absorbed, and used by the human body. * Other proteins that have low biological values (such as most plant proteins) are not efficiently used by the body, which means a higher amount of them needs to be consumed in order to deliver quality amounts of essential amino acids.* Since whey protein has a very high biological value it is ideally suited for individuals looking to support muscle growth, fat loss, recovery, and performance.* Furthermore, whey protein is rapidly digested, making it an enticing option for a post workout recovery shake.* Research also supports the use of whey protein supplementation when trying to build muscle, lose fat, and improve body composition.*[7,8] Additional studies also find that supplementing with whey protein may enhance anaerobic power and strength compared to supplementing with carbohydrates, due to improved recovery when supplementing with protein.[9]* WHEY Uses Only WPC-80 A little known fact about whey protein concentrate is that its protein contents can vary between 34-80%![10]* Further complicating the matter is the fact that companies are NOT required to list which grade of whey protein concentrate is included in their protein powder, which means you could be getting (paying for) as little as 34% protein by weight in your powder.*  What makes up the remaining percentage?* A mixture of carbohydrates (lactose) and fat.* Together this means that not only is your “protein” powder high in fat and lactose (which is sure to lead to GI upset), but it’s also low in protein.* We don’t know about you, but we hardly consider that a “protein powder”.* That’s why we use only the highest-quality whey protein concentrate in our WHEY protein powder -- WPC-80.* This delivers a powder that is high in protein while keeping carbs, fat, and total calories in check.* The other added benefit of using a concentrate as opposed to something like hydrolyzed whey protein is that it retains higher amounts of the bioactive fractions naturally occurring in whey, such as: ß-lactoglobulin  α-lactalbumin  Bovine serum albumin Immunoglobulins Glycomacropeptide Lactoferrin Lactoperoxidase And, whey concentrate also offers a superior texture and mouthfeel compared to other protein powders which can either taste thin and watery or gritty and grass-like.* Added Digestive Support WPC-80 is naturally low in lactose and whey in and of itself if highly bioavailable, but we sought to improve its digestion and uptake even more with the addition of DigeSEB™.* DigeSEB™ is a unique complex of digestive enzymes included to enhance digestibility, decrease bloating, and boost the overall nutrition of WHEY.*  DigeSEB™ contains a special combination of FIVE digestive enzymes to improve digestibility of a broad range of foods (including dairy) into nutrients that the body can efficiently use.*  Enzymes included in DigeSEB™ are: Amylases - naturally occurring enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates, more specifically starch, into smaller dextrins and sugars Lactase - digestive enzyme that breaks down lactose (milk sugar) Proteases - enzymes that hydrolyze (breaks down) proteins found in whey, casein, steak, chicken, fish as well as plant proteins into smaller chains of polypeptides and amino acids for uptake and utilization by the body Lipase - enzyme that catalyzes the breakdown of fats into essential fatty acids used by the body for cell membrane repair and maintenance, hormone production, and numerous other functions Cellulase - enzyme that digests cellulose, a complex carbohydrate found in all plant material including plant fiber Disclaimer:  *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.  This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
