Build the Ultimate Anabolic Stack with LTD

LTD is here, and with its simple but powerful three-pronged approach to testosterone-boosting, it is not only just a great men’s supplement by itself, but also perfect for stacking with other NUTRISHOP products for the perfect anabolic stack.

Many NUTRISHOP customers already using pro-hormone supplements might wonder if this will replace, or live up to, the products they’re already taking. The answer: The Anabolic Trifecta Stack (Anitest, HGH-191, Arabol) will work WITH LTD for insane results. While LTD alone will likely be considered one of the premier ways to go for testosterone production, its effects can be boosted by the Anabolic Trifecta because they work in different ways.

None of the products in the Trifecta focus on the big three ingredients LTD does; instead, they work in different ways. ANITEST works to unlock free testosterone in the system by unbinding it from a protein that makes it unavailable for use; ARABOL is centered around arachidonic acid (AA) which has a US patent for increasing muscle mass; HGH-191 relies mostly on Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA) to signal the brain to release growth hormone.

Why does all that matter? Because each is unique in how it works, and every single one works in conjunction with the other. That means that those looking for accelerated gains in muscle mass and testosterone production can turn to LTD and stack it with the Anabolic Trifecta for even more insane gains! Think of each product as a delivery route for testosterone. Because each one is a different route, they can all be used at the same time, increasing your body’s ability to produce the crucial hormone testosterone.

LTD has all the promise of a stand-alone, awesome supplement. But those who are serious about fast, noticeable results should consider stacking it with the NUTRISHOP customer favorite Anabolic Trifecta Stack.

On top of that, the usual suspects show up to help make LTD even more potent, too: BCAAs, for round-the-clock or timely catabolism prevention; N’FUZE KreAlkalyn, to further help boost strength and muscle mass via cellular ATP during workouts; GLUTAMIC for enhanced recovery and, of course, no stack of any kind would be complete without a quality protein supplement like PRO7 or HYDROPRO.

Meet the NUTRISHOP Staff: Matt Sheppard

For athletes looking to make the jump into college sports or just a more competitive level, new NUTRISHOP-East Avenue owner Matt Sheppard is the guy to talk to. As a former collegiate football player, well-schooled in the business of training, nutrition, rehab and therapy, Matt knows the value of having sound advice and a solid plan when it comes to becoming a premier athlete.

But for Matt, there’s more to it than that.

“I want to make a priority of getting everyone a base of overall health. It’s my goal to make sure that anyone can go in and get free advice, the best advice, and to not be afraid of making positive changes,” he says. “It’s not just a bodybuilding place. I want NUTRISHOP to be the place to go when you need any kind of health advice, for any goal.”

Matt’s own goals have changed since he’s become a part of the Chico community. Now that he’s firmly embedded in it in a position to help others, that’s exactly what he wants to do.

“Now that I’ve gone to school here, live here and own a business, I want to make sure I’m a part of the community,” he says. “I want people to know we’re a part of everything. I’m home, and I want people to feel like we’re all in the same home, all in it together.”

To Matt, when you go into NUTRISHOP, you’re buying into a lifestyle. You start the path to living a healthy life, and he wants to promote that. And he’s not just all talk — he does it.

“I want people to go in and get motivated, any way I can. Girls and guys have come in and I’ll help them train myself, I’ll go run in the park with people to make sure that people are going to get what they came in there for,” he says. “If it’s to motivate them more on my day off, I’ll do it.”

Matt’s education includes an associate’s degree from Santa Barbara City College, studying in Spain and a communications degree from Chico State. Out of college athletics when he arrived in Chico, his quest to stay in shape was fueled by training in Brazilian jujitsu, which he is still involved with. Now more than ever, Matt understands the importance of focusing on nutrition and training discipline and specializes in sharing that mindset and knowledge with his NUTRISHOP customers.

“The best feeling doesn’t come from being in the shop, but being somewhere out around town and having people recognize you and going out of their way, saying that you helped them lose weight, or win an event, or just look good in their wedding pictures,” he says. “I helped a kid win a BMX event, and his dad came up to me and said, ‘Thanks for all your help.’ That’s what it’s all about for me.”

Whatever your goal is, Matt says, he has found that almost across the board, nutrition will be the key to achieving it — but not everybody has the same set of rules. Part of the challenge and the enjoyment for him is finding the perfect plan for the individual.

“Nutrition’s going to be 70 percent of anybody’s success. Your health is your base,” Matt says. “You want to get healthy and work up from there. If you don’t have your base, you won’t see results. Finding the right product for the right type of person is the key, and that’s our main goal: to help people figure out what’s best for them.”

MATT’S FAVORITE WORKOUT
Matt likes to mix it up, but almost always goes with something full-body to ensure that he gets a good sweat going. A good example is our former Workout of the Week, the Full-Week Circuit Training Plan.

Build the Perfect Anabolic Stack with AUGMENT

There is no one supplement alone that will transform your body into lean and muscular without you putting in the hard work with your exercise and diet. That said, the newly released AUGMENT, from pHLabs,  is pretty close to it. Still, you can maximize its efficacy and see awesome results with the right stack.

We’ve gotten many people already asking about this, in fact, wondering if it can stack with other pro-testosterone products at NUTRISHOP. The answer: Yes! The Ursolic Acid and Arachidonic Acid blend in AUGMENT that makes it such an animal of a supplement goes perfectly with a few other products, and we’ll show how.

Like ARABOL, for instance, AUGMENT contains AA, from the Omega-6 family. This increases inflammation in the muscles for further breakdown and better repair, meaning more muscle mass — this is why AA holds a U.S. patent for it! However, AUGMENT and ARABOL, both great choices, should not stack together. Because each has a precise formula with specific amounts of AA, doubling up on it would definitely be a bad thing.

You CAN pair AUGMENT, however, with the rest of NUTRISHOP’s outstanding anabolic growth line. 1-XD, which has been proven to increase testosterone in males by up to 42 percent, makes a perfect partner. Because AUGMENT not only helps increase muscle mass and the sensitivity to testosterone, it makes sense to stack it with a natural testosterone-booster like 1-XD. They complement each other perfectly.

ANITEST, which unbinds free testosterone within the body to make it more readily available, is also an ideal choice. Similar to how it works with ARABOL, ANITEST provides more of this essential muscle-building hormone and leaves it up to AUGMENT’s awesome uptake properties to put it to best use. Remember, just having extra testosterone isn’t enough. Your body has to be ready to use it. This is where stacking ANITEST and AUGMENT will really give you an advantage.

And lastly, everyone’s favorite nighttime supplement, HGH-191, also belongs in this stack. A great deal of growth hormone, luteinizing hormone and testosterone are released during deep sleep. The brain signals the sex hormones to release during this period, leading to full recovery during rest. HGH-191 helps induce that necessary deep sleep, allowing for better sleep patterns and a deeper sleep environment for the brain to signal muscle growth unimpeded.

Unlock Your Body’s Own Testosterone with ANITEST

As men grow older, testosterone output slowly declines. This is a natural process, but it also is responsible for many troubles originally associated with simply age: loss of muscle tone, impotence, lack of sex drive and body fat gain.

From a physiological standpoint, there are ways around this, even for aging men. Testosterone replacement therapy is gaining a ton of attention for its benefits in reversing the negative effects that accompany hormone production with age. But it often includes expensive prescriptions at best, or in some cases, intramuscular injections. Plus, synthetic testosterone has been shown to have undesirable side effects, including increased risk of prostate cancer, oily skin and acne, and dramatic mood swings. The pituitary falls under the impression that the body has enough testosterone, so it stops signaling the testes to produce sperm. Plus, there is a host of other drugs that need to be taken to prevent surging estrogen levels and other ill effects when cycling off of it.

ANITEST is a remarkable alternative to those options, so you’re not stuck between choosing a less-effective body or giving up an arm and a leg to afford good health. Rarely are symptoms so noticeable or dramatic, in fact, that it will come down to that decision, but even males younger than 30 can experience “Low T.”

The difference between ANITEST and a synthetic testosterone injection is that while hormone replacement treatment provides false hormones, ANITEST allows your body to use more of its own. Much of the free testosterone in the system is binded to Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG), proteins that inhibit the testosterone’s availability. The hormone itself is there, but it cannot be used. ANITEST frees it from this protein by blocking the SHBG in the first place, and the result is an increase in free testosterone, produced by your OWN BODY.

Perhaps you aren’t necessarily after the “bulked-up” muscular look that a high increase in testosterone can provide, but just want to maintain a healthy muscle mass and properly functioning male system. Anitest shouldn’t be ruled out as an option! Remember, it is not testosterone itself — but it is a way to get the most out of the amount your body is producing.

On the other hand, there are early indicators of a potential need for increased T down the road, according to the Cleveland Clinic. Testicular injury, exposure to radiation, some blood disorders or illnesses and even just stress are all potential causes of a deficiency in this important steroid hormone. Seeking a natural way to improve your body’s production and use of it could be a more than viable way to address the issue.

How Stacking 1-XD and the Anabolic Trifecta Stack Will Get You HUGE

ForzaOne’s 1-XD is an awesome supplement in its own right, just based off the research behind it alone: A 42-percent increase in testosterone in just 12 days, combined with the fact that it will suppress estrogen levels, means that this revolutionary product can provide a leaner, stronger you with harder, denser muscle mass.

Many NUTRISHOP customers already using pro-hormone supplements might wonder if this will replace, or live up to, the products they’re already taking. The answer: The Anabolic Trifecta Stack (Anitest, HGH-191, Arabol) will work WITH 1-XD for insane results. While 1-XD alone will likely be considered the premier way to go for testosterone production, its effects can be boosted by the Anabolic Trifecta because they work in different ways.

None of the products in the Trifecta focus on D-Aspartic Acid like 1-XD does; instead, they work in different ways. ANITEST works to unlock free testosterone in the system by unbinding it from a protein that makes it unavailable for use; ARABOL is centered around arachidonic acid (AA) which has a US patent for increasing muscle mass; HGH-191 relies mostly on Gamma Amino Butyric Acid (GABA) to signal the brain to release growth hormone.

Why does all that matter? Because each is unique in how it works, and every single one works in conjunction with the other. That means that those looking for accelerated gains in muscle mass and testosterone production can turn to 1-XD and stack it with the Anabolic Trifecta for even more insane gains! Think of each product as a delivery route for testosterone. Because each one is a different route, they can all be used at the same time, increasing your body’s ability to produce the crucial hormone testosterone.

1-XD has all the promise of a stand-alone, awesome supplement. But those who are serious about fast, noticeable results should consider stacking it with the NUTRISHOP customer favorite Anabolic Trifecta Stack.

Boost Testosterone By Up to 42 Percent in 12 DAYS — 1-XD is at NUTRISHOP Chico

Are you looking to increase strength, muscle mass, athletic performance and libido — and FAST? The way to do it is to provide your body with the proper environment to produce enough growth. In men, this means a boost to testosterone.

“Low-T” is a common occurrence in men as they age, and it begins as young as 18, when the body is done with puberty and is fully formed. Simply put, there’s no need for your body to grow any more. Of course, if you want more muscle mass or strength, this doesn’t apply to you — you need to consume enough calories, take in enough protein and exercise properly to make sure you can keep growing. But sometimes that’s not enough for elite athletes.

For some guys who want rapid results, the answer is a boost to testosterone levels. Of course, it’s not legal to get synthetic testosterone injections if you’re an athlete — and NUTRISHOP wouldn’t condone this type of action, since it’s banned in just about every single professional and collegiate level of sports worldwide. But that doesn’t mean you can’t encourage your body to produce more of ITS OWN TESTOSTERONE. And that’s exactly what ForzaOne’s 1-XD is designed to do.

This is where science comes in. A naturally occurring compound known as Sodium D-Aspartic Acid (DAA, for short), the primary ingredient in 1-XD, has undergone some interesting studies in the last few years. The takeaway from those studies: DAA is amazing!

In 2009, a group of Italian physicians and researchers published a peer-reviewed study in“Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology” journal examining the effects of DAA, an amino acid present in humans naturally. What they found was incredible: In males, DAA provides up to a 42-percent increase in testosterone in just 12 days, compared to a placebo group, and that it also increased luteinizing hormone (LH), also found in the body and that is responsible for triggering testosterone production:

 Here we demonstrated that D-aspartic acid, which occurs as a physiological compound in the mammalian pituitary and testis, has a role in the regulation of the release and synthesis of LH and testosterone.

If you’ve looked into testosterone production before, you might already know that high levels of testosterone in the body can “aromatize” — simply put, this means it can be converted into estrogen, a hormone males should have only minimal interest in. We need some, but too much will give us the opposite effect of what we want.

The human body responds this way in order to create balance. In many cases, the body contains aromatase, an enzyme that is more likely to convert testosterone into estrogen. This could provide a problem if you’re trying to produce testosterone output. 1-XD compensates for this, though, with a special Estrogen Suppression blend. That way, you can get the testosterone you need without the estrogen you don’t want.

Bottom line: DAA snaps your brain back into testosterone-producing mode, helping you get bigger, stronger and more muscular. “Low-T” might be an issue for some — it might even be an issue for you. 1-XD could be the answer to that problem.
