COMPLETE MORE REPS
Power your workouts with PR-BREAKER®!
How is V2.0 different from the original MATERIA formula?
1. Higher quality Citrulline source (Kyowa Quality®) + more total Citrulline per serving (Now contains 6g L-Citruline + 3g Malic Acid, equivalent to 9g Citrulline Malate).
2. Switched choline source from Choline Bitartrate to AlphaSize® Alpha-GPC (faster acting + crosses the blood brain barrier leading to increased cognitive benefits).
3. Improved stability (no clumping) due to changes in the above ingredient sources, flow agents, packaging, and the addition of a second desiccant packet.
Note the price of MATERIA has increased from $34.99 to $39.99 due to the increased cost of the new ingredients + the increased cost of all original ingredients.
L-CITRULLINE (Kyowa Quality®)
L-Citrulline is an amino acid that converts to L-Arginine, the main precursor to Nitric Oxide (NO). L-Citrulline supplementation increases plasma L-Arginine levels greater than L-Arginine supplementation.
L-Citrulline supports Nitric Oxide (NO) metabolism and regulation, which promotes increased blood flow and oxygen circulation AKA “The Pump”.
L-Citrulline supplementation has been shown to reduce fatigue and muscle soreness, increase power output, and increase the number of repetitions performed on both lower body and upper body exercises.
Clinically studied dosage = 2400-6000mg. MATERIA contains 3000mg per 1 scoop and 6000mg per 2 scoops.
CREATINE MONOHYDRATE (Creapure®)
Creatine supplementation can increase skeletal muscle phosphocreatine (PCr) thereby increasing the capacity to resynthesize ATP (cellular energy) and sustain high-intensity exercise performance.
Creatine supplementation has been shown to increase strength, power, and lean mass in addition to a host of other benefits.
Creatine monohydrate is the most extensively studied and proven-effective form of creatine.
Clinically studied dosage = 2000-5000mg. MATERIA contains 2500mg per 1 scoop and 5000mg per 2 scoops.
Carnosine is a molecule that helps buffer acid in muscles. Supplementing with Beta-Alanine increases muscles carnosine levels.
Increasing Carnosine levels through beta-alanine supplementation will decrease the accumulation of hydrogen ions (H+) during exercise thereby delaying fatigue and improving performance.
Beta-Alanine supplementation has been shown to improve endurance, delay fatigue, and increase strength and lean mass (synergistic effect when combined with creatine monohydrate).
Clinically studied dosage = 1600-6400mg, with studies combining Beta-Alanine with Creatine using 3200mg. MATERIA contains 1600mg per 1 scoop and 3200mg per 2 scoops.
Tyrosine is a nonessential amino acid used to make the catecholamine neurotransmitters dopamine (DA), norepinephrine (NE), and epinephrine (E).
Stress, such as exercise, depletes the amount of DA and NE in the brain. Supplementing with tyrosine will ensure your body has the precursor materials it needs for DA and NE production.
Clinically studied dosage = 500-2000mg single dosages all the way up to 10,000mg+ per day. MATERIA contains 1000mg per 1 scoop and 2000mg per 2 scoops.
Choline is an essential nutrient and vital component of phospholipids in every cell throughout the body. Choline undergoes acetylation to form the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh) which activates muscle contractions. Exercise has been shown to decrease Choline levels, which could lead to suboptimal physical and cognitive performance due to decreased ACh synthesis. By supplementing with Choline, one supplies the needed precursor to ensure ACh production is sufficient for optimal performance.
Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline (aka Alpha-GPC) is a premier choline source. Alpha-GPC has the highest bioavailability and is the most rapidly absorbed form of choline (a benefit when taken pre-workout). Alpha-GPC crosses the blood-brain barrier to increase choline levels in the brain resulting in additional cognitive benefits
Clinically studied dosage = 200-600mg. MATERIA contains 250mg per 1 scoop and 500mg per 2 scoops.
Caffeine acts as an adenosine receptor antagonist. Activation of the adenosine receptor decreases the release of stimulatory neurotransmitters (i.e. NE). Blocking the adenosine receptor with caffeine allows for greater excitation to occur by increasing NE’s ability to activate the adrenergic receptors. In addition, caffeine may increase performance through enhancing lipid (fat) oxidation.
Studies have shown caffeine to boost both endurance and strength-power performance.
Clinically studied dosage = 3-6mg/kg, with a dosage of 300mg being shown to increase NO production and blood flow. MATERIA contains 150mg per 1 scoop and 300mg per 2 scoops.
Huperzine A works in the cholinergic system. Huperzine A increases the duration ACh is active for by inhibiting the enzyme (acetylcholinesterase) that breaks ACh down. By combining Alpha-GPC with Huperzine A we have enhanced cholinergic transmission in two ways; Alpha-GPC supplies the precursor to increase ACh production while Huperzine A increases the duration ACh is active for by decreasing its breakdown.
Huperzine A research supports its use for improving cognitive function and memory.
Clinically studied dosage = 100-300mcg. MATERIA contains 100mcg per 1 scoop and 200mcg per 2 scoops.
Mix 1-2 Scoops MATERIA in 4-16oz water and consume 15-30 minutes prior to exercise. We recommend 6oz of water per scoop for the ideal flavor strength. You can adjust the amount of water used based on your desired flavor strength.
Q: Should I take 1 or 2 scoops of MATERIA?
A: MATERIA was designed to allow users to take 1 or 2 scoops based on the effects they desire, specifically the amount of energy and focus. Whether you take 1 or 2 scoops, you are receiving clinical dosages of every ingredient. 1 Scoop of MATERIA provides the lower end of the clinically proven-effective ingredient dosages (i.e. 1600mg Beta-Alanine) while 2 scoops provides the full clinical dosage (i.e. 3200mg Beta-Alanine). Start with 1 scoop of MATERIA and assess how you respond. Then increase to 2 scoops if you want to feel more energy and focus.
Q: Does MATERIA cause any side effects?
A: MATERIA contains a large dosage of Beta-Alanine, so you may experience a tingling sensation after drinking it. Note this tingling sensation is not harmful in any way and may decrease the longer you take MATERIA.
