Animal Pak is one of the best sellers in sports nutrition and a product that anyone who goes to the gym or is into fitness should know.
It is an excellent supplement made from vitamins, minerals, amino acids, plant extracts and digestive enzymes. It will meet any nutrient deficiency and provide support for strict diets, periods of high physical wear or to gain muscle mass.
Animal Pak offers an essential micronutrient supply that will provide excellent results, either to increase the muscle mass or for a cutting phase to eliminate as much fat as possible. If protein shakes, whey protein or creatine are some of the most popular products among athletes, multivitamins are not that far behind since they provide positive results for our health, strength or muscle recovery.
Animal pack will be the perfect supplement for your gym routine if you want to gain muscle mass and some help to follow a fitness diet.
Animal Pak comes in comfortable individual packs that contain 11 tablets full of essential nutrients. It has been designed for those who have higher nutrient requirements than the rest of the population due to a demanding workout routine or competition periods. In these circumstances, we undergo more physical and mental wear, but Animal Pak will unleash all its potential in order to support us.
Animal Pak is possibly the number 1 in the category of supplements designed to provide vitamins, minerals and other necessary elements to increase the muscle mass. It has been this way since Universal Nutrition launched it in 1983.
When people start following a diet, one of our main priorities is to plan the calorie intake. If your goal is muscle definition, we will have to eat less calories. If you are trying to gain weight and muscle, you have to take catabolic ingredients which are involved in several physiological reactions for muscle growth.
Regardless of your goal, you can rely on Animal Pak, each pack provides a series of nutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids and plant extracts to help you achieve any objective. One of its most remarkable properties is its ability to improve the sport performance.
- Water-soluble vitamins: Vitamin B (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pyridoxine Hcl, folic acid, methylcobalamin/cyanocobalamin, pantothenic acid, biotin), and C
- Fat-soluble vitamins: A, D and E
Vitamins and minerals are essential elements for life. Lacking of any of them can have serious consequences for our health. The daily supply of all of them will become crucial for a healthy and athletic organism. These nutrients are co-enzymes and co-factors when it comes to producing cell energy. Moreover, they are involved in several metabolic processes such as obtaining nutrients from macronutrients (protein, fat and carbohydrates).
The amount of vitamins and minerals from Animal Pak is higher than the daily requirements of sedentary people. The reason why is that this is precisely the amount that active people need to avoid any type of deficiency that could compromise the recovery and performance.
Exercise (physical stress) amplifies metabolic pathways that need micronutrients. Doing physical exercise regularly will result in muscle biochemical adaptations that will increase the micronutrient requirements. Consequently, we will need more micronutrients to meet the demands of processes like muscle growth, regeneration and recovery.
Athletes have significantly higher requirements when compared to the rest of the population. Thanks to this product by Universal Nutrition, they will be able to improve their performance.
Animal Pak is made up of 3 important nutrient complexes apart from the previous vitamins and minerals.
- Essential amino acids: Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Valine
- Non-essential amino acids: Alanine, Arginine, Aspartic Acid, Cysteine, Glutamic Acid, Glutamine, Glycine, Histidine, Proline, Serine, Tyrosine
Amino acids are the units that make up a protein, that is, it is made of amino acid chains which have to be broken down in order to be absorbed. Essential amino acids are those that the body cannot synthesize on its own and that we have to take from the diet. The role of Amino acids role goes beyond the protein synthesis, since they are involved in many other reactions in the organism and they help to preserve: organs, muscles, skin, hair, nails, etc. A proper protein supply is necessary to have enough amino acids to perform such processes. However, taking them in alone will provide some extra benefits because they will go straight into the bloodstream in order to be transported to the whole body.
Amino acids are necessary to performs tasks such as the tissue regeneration and synthesis. Therefore, they will help us preserve and gain muscle mass in a fitness diet.
- Choline bitartrate
- Para-aminobenzoic acid
This complex improves the cognitive functions during highly stressful situations to help us deal with them. That is why it is made from some ingredients with adaptogenic properties. Adaptogens are a unique group of elements used to improve the health of the adrenal system, which is in charge of the hormone response to stress. They strengthen the physical response to stress and improve our ability to cope with the anxiety and fatigue.
The body can use this property to improve our daily life, as well as our sports performance, supporting fitness diets.
- Citrus flavonoids
- Coenzyme Q10
- Grape seed extract
- Pine Bark Extract
Antioxidants are elements that protect us from oxidative damage caused by the free radicals. These harmful agents can be due to external factors (sunlight or pollution) or due to biological reactions inside our organism. Thus, the passing of time also triggers and speeds up this process. This occurs at a molecular level, one atom loses an electron. Therefore, it must find or rather steal another electron from a different atom, entering an endless cycle. This process becomes a chain reaction, breaking down tissues. The effects on the body can affect the nervous and immune system, skin health, etc. Even our ability to recover can be affected.
Having a good inner health will be necessary condition if we want to support the creation and recovery of our tissues.
Digestive enzymes are elements that support the digestion process. The food from the diet is the place we take nutrients from, we need to meet the calorie requirements and obtain the essential micronutrients to perform physiological processes. Thus, its main function is to support the digestive process for an efficient nutrient supply. On the other hand, they will help us improve the intestinal flora, regulating the intestinal tract apart from having probiotic properties.
Several processes depend on an adequate nutrient supply, such as the synthesis of new muscle tissue.
Animal Pak has been specially designed for those who carry out intense workouts or who undergo a high level of physical wear due to physical exercise and other daily activities.
You can use this product in two different ways:
- Competition period
The requirements are higher in the first case, which is why it is advisable to take 2 packs a day in order to make sure we take all the vitamins and minerals, as well as amino acids.
In the second case, the calorie restriction and physical wear will not be as intense. Therefore, 1 pack a day should be enough.
Each pack from Animal Pak is made up of 11 tablets. You have to take them with plenty of water and with a meal.
Evidently, the side effects will be positive, for example:
- Improving the muscle recovery
- Keeping our mood up
- Sharpening the focus
- Improving the digestions
- Supporting our skin, strengthening our hair and nails
On the other hand, a possible 'negative' side effect is the fact that it makes the urine look bright yellow. However, this is actually quite common when using products enriched with vitamin B2 or Riboflavin, but this is not toxic whatsoever. Observing this effect is good, since it means that the body has absorbed the nutrients from the tablets.
