Power Generation™

Energy

(Pre-Workout or Daily Energy Boost)

Do you play tennis, baseball, or a sport that requires mental focus as well as physical stamina?

Peak physical performance during workouts and competition requires maximum energy and mental focus. Fatigue and lack of focus often lead to injuries and poor exercise results. Add a pre-workout energy boost for your body and mind, so you can accomplish more!

LowOz™

Hydration (During Workout)

Ever get thirsty while working out?

Dehydration can occur long before you even become thirsty. In fact, without sufficient fluids, your body is less capable of moving nutrients through your system and distributing oxygen. The result? Fatigue and muscle cramps. Research shows that dehydrating muscle by as little as three percent can result in a 12 percent decrease in strength. Plus, as you become dehydrated, you lose essential electrolytes such as sodium and potassium, which are critical for bodily functions.

Hydrate your body during your workout or competition, and you will notice a marked difference.

QuadPlex™

Strength

(Pre- and Post-Workout Vital Replenishment)

Protein is the foundation for building lean muscle mass, so supplementing with a good protein source is extremely important. Furthermore, use a protein supplement that has fast- and slow-metabolizing proteins, so your muscles are supplied with protein all day long.

MyoCap- Post Workout Blend

Recovery

(Post-Workout Blend)

Have you ever felt muscle pain the day after an intense workout? This is your body’s natural way of telling you that your muscles were stressed and need proper time and nutrients to recover. Most people don’t know that the recovery phase (resting, sleeping) can be enhanced with the proper blend of vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids.

Designed to be taken after exercise, Unicity’s MyoCap contains an exclusive blend of nutrients that promotes recovery after training and exercise, and helps support the recuperative process, so your muscle pains are minimized.

CHROMATONE™:  CHROMIUM Extra Fat-Burning Boost

June 22, 2011 at 8:23p

Chromatone_image
  • Chromium plays a role in the metabolism of glucose, and is necessary for energy production. Since this mineral assists in the production of insulin, it helps to stabilize blood sugar levels and can be beneficial both for people with hypoglycemia and diabetes. It is also critical to the synthesis of cholesterol, fats, and proteins.
  • Chromium polynicotinate is more effective than any other type of chromium, as it binds the elemental chromium to niacin (vitamin B-3). This provides a biologically active form of chromium, which is more absorbable in the body.
  • • Chromium, a trace mineral that is often deficient in adults, may help to prevent or treat metabolic problems, including obesity, glucose intolerance, and unhealthy lipid profiles, according to Georgetown University researchers.
  • • A significant number of adults are unknowingly deficient, and no test exists to make the diagnosis. The appearance of metabolic syndrome may be the first sign of chromium deficiency. In the body, chromium improves the sensitivity of insulin receptors, helping to promote optimal metabolism of sugars.
  • • More than 90% of U.S. adults have a deficiency of the mineral chromium. Chromium is not readily absorbed from foods, and the human body even has difficulty in absorbing chromium from most nutritional supplements. To alleviate this problem, the U.S. Department of Agriculture developed and patented chromium picolinate, a readily absorbed form of the mineral.
  • • Other studies reported at the conference showed that chromium picolinate in humans improved the HDL/LDL ratio and that it increased muscle mass while decreasing the percentage of body fat. Athletes doing weight training taking chromium picolinate at Bemidji State University had a 21 percent greater drop in body fat and a 42 percent greater increase in muscle mass than athletes on the same program not taking the supplement.
  • • In an 8-week trial at Georgetown University, chromium polynicotinate helped overweight women lose fat while sparing muscle, compared to the group using a placebo.
  • • Nicholas V. Perricone, M.D., In his blog relates that chromium polynicotinate may even increase lifespan by as much as 20 percent.
  • • According to a study done by researchers at Cornell University, chromium provides major relief for depression.
  • • In this double-blind study, volunteers received 300 mcg per day of niacin-bound chromium polynicotinate or placebo for three months. At the trial’s end, the supplemented group had lower fasting glucose and triglyceride levels than the control group, and also had lower levels of glycosylated hemoglobin, or hemoglobin A1c, a measure of long-term blood sugar control. The niacin-bound chromium supplement was well tolerated, with no adverse effects reported.
  • • Niacin-bound chromium supplementation may thus reduce the risk for glucose intolerance, prevent the progression of glucose intolerance to frank diabetes, improve glucose control in diabetics, and assist in managing elevated triglyceride levels.
  • • Reference: Yasmin T, Shara M, Bagchi M, Preuss HG, Bagchi D. Toxicological assessment of a novel niacin-bound chromium, known to ameliorate the symptoms of metabolic syndromes. Journal of the American College of Nutrition, 45th Annual Meeting, abs 77, October;76(2):272-5.
  • Gymnema Sylvestre ..In healthy adults gymnema sylvestre is believed to help curb cravings for sweets. Though not a magic bullet, when taken with a high-carbohydrate meal or a meal high in sugar, it can aid the body by passing through sugars and making carbs available for burning, rather than turning these into fat stores. In this way it helps to build lean muscle mass
  • Papaya seeds and leaves are useful in treating intestinal worms found in the body.
  • • Papaya helps prevent constipation and also aid in digestion. Papaya contains the protein called papain which is a digestive enzyme that helps in natural digestion process.

Low Oz™- Hydration

Ever get thirsty while working out?

Dehydration can occur long before you even become thirsty. In fact, without sufficient fluids, your body is less capable ofhydrationmoving nutrients through your system and distributing oxygen. The result?Low-oz1

Fatigue and muscle cramps. Research shows that dehydrating muscle by as little as three percent can result in a 12 percent decrease in strength. Plus, as you become dehydrated, you lose essential electrolytes such as sodium and potassium, which are critical for bodily functions.

LowOz features exclusive Rapid Replenishment technology that not only delivers a blend of essential electrolytes, energy-efficient nutrients, and antioxidants but also delivers it in an effective manner.* Our secret? Low osmolality — hence, “LowOz.”

Osmolality is the measurement of solid particles in a liquid. For example, the average osmolality of blood is 250. It’s difficult for the body to absorb liquids with osmolality ratings higher than 250. Most of the leading sports drinks have ratings above 250, which means your body doesn’t absorb them efficiently even if your body is dehydrated. LowOz’s osmolality rating is only 150, which means that the ingredients essential to combating dehydration are quickly and efficiently absorbed by your body. LowOz feaures a fresh citrus flavor.

Essential Ingredients:

Electrolyte Blend – Electrolyte blend combines potassium, sodium and magnesium in an optimal proportion to maintain water balance during exercise. As you exercise and sweat, you lose fluid and important nutrients known as electrolytes. Loss of electrolytes and dehydration can cause multipule negative effects, such as headache, fatique, and muscle cramps. The electrolyte blend helps you maintain your water balance during exercise so you can benefit from your workout and avoid Low-oz1exhaustion.*
Pine Antioxidant Blend – This superior antioxidant blend includes vitamin C and OPC blend, a combination of grape seed extract and maritime pine bark extract. Exercise creates free radicals, damaging cells inside your body. While the body has its own defense mechanism against free radicals, it is also dependant on antioxidant intake from food and supplements. LowOz supplies powerful flavonoids, catechins, and other antioxidants to support your body’s natural antioxidant defense system.*
Energy Blend – An energy-efficient blend of slow-metabolizing carbs (fructose), fast acting-metabolizing carbs (maltodextrin), and vitamin B’s provides energy sources to sustain your workout.*

MyoCap – Post Workout

recovery

Have you ever felt muscle pain the day after an intense workout? This is your body’s natural way of telling you that your muscles were stressed and need proper time and nutrients to recover.Xxtra MyoCap

Most people don’t know that the recovery phase (resting, sleeping) can be enhanced with the proper blend of vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids. With MyoCap, you can work out as intensely as ever, but the results don’t have to be as uncomfortable.

Designed to be taken after exercise, MyoCap contains an exclusive blend of nutrients that promote recovery after training and exercise and helps support the recuperative process, so your muscle pains are minimized.Xxtra MyoCap

L-Arginine is an amino acid that helps speed muscle recovey from stress. After a vigorous workout, dietary arginine can contribute to a hormonal environment that produces increased protein synthesis and muscle growth.

OPC (Oligomeric Proanthocyanidins) and ORACTIVE are bioflavonoids (complex organic plant compounds in fruit, vegetables, and bark). Bioflavonoids have been reported to seek out and subdue free-radicals and form a protective shield.

Vitamin C reduces strength loss in muscles after exercise and promotes faster recovery. Vitamin C supplementation also reduces the intensity of soreness.

Vitamin B Complex (thiamin and B6) helps release energy for cellular regeneration and support amino acid and protein synthesis.

Overheating- Over-Exposure to Summer Heat

src=”https://unicityproducts.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/hydration.png” alt=”hydration” width=”72″ height=”72″ />Our bodies are able to maintain our body temperature fairly well. When circumstances arise where the body is no longer effectively cooling itself, a number of dangerous things begin to happen to us.

Sweating is a very effective mechanism that allows us to cool off. However, heavy sweating is a sign of heat exhaustion. Other signs are dizziness, headache, vomiting, muscle cramps, diarrhea, weakness, or an unquenchable thirst, numb and tingling hands and feet, muscle cramps, palpitations, breathlessness. As you become dehydrated, you lose essential electrolytes such as sodium and potassium, which are critical for bodily functions.

If a person gets to a point where they are no longer sweating, with hot skin, and the body temperature rises above 41°, and experiences partial or complete loss of consciousness they are suffering Heat Stroke which would require immediate medical attention!!

To prevent Overheating and Dehydration:

Avoid sun exposure. Move some tasks indoors or into the shade. When that’s not possible, erect a temporary shelter. Take frequent breaks in a cool or well-ventilated area to get out of the sun and heat.

Don’t be afraid to sweat. Sweating is the body’s most effective cooling mechanism. The cooling occurs as sweat evaporates. In some cases a fan can be used to move cool air into a room and help keep body temperatures down.

Become acclimatized. Don’t take on strenuous activities too soon if you’re not accustomed to the heat. It can take six to seven days for the body to fully adapt (or acclimatize) to a new thermal environment. Ease into your tasks gradually, taking frequent breaks from the heat as needed. It is advisable to assign about half of the normal workload to new employees or those back from vacations or illnesses on the first day of work and gradually increase day by day.

Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water – frequently (equivalent of about one litre every hour) – in hot weather conditions whether you feel thirsty or not to replace the fluid loss. Avoid consuming caffeine and alcohol, which can dehydrate you. A great product to stay hydrated is LowOz™. The average osmolality of blood is 250. LowOz™ has been tested at an osmolality of 150.* Water is driven to areas of higher osmolality. Since the drink will have a lower osmolality than the tissues, water will be absorbed into the tissue where it is needed.

Low-oz1Clothing. For protection from the sun and heat when working outside, cover up as much as possible with loose-fitting clothes made of a light fabric that “breathes”. When you work in the sun without a shirt or hat, the sun dries your sweat too quickly and prevents it from cooling the body. Clothes give sweat a chance to cool the body, and help protect the skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

Emergency Action Plan. An emergency plan should include procedures for providing affected workers with first aid and medical care. Workplaces where heat stress can occur should monitor conditions and ensure that workers get specified rest periods dependent on the measured heat levels. The Threshold Limit Values for Heat Stress and Strain, produced by the ACGIH (American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists) offers guidelines to determine when the weather should have no effect on outdoor workers, when caution should be exercised and when work should be discontinued.

LowOz™
LowOz™’s electrolyte blend combines potassium, sodium, and magnesium in an optimal proportion to maintain water balance during exercise. The electrolyte blend helps you maintain your fluid balance during exercise so you can benefit from your workout and avoid exhaustion.*

LowOz™’s energy blend combines slow metabolizing (fructose) and fast metabolizing carbohydrates (maltodextrin) and B vitamins to provide energy sources to sustain your workout.*

LowOz™’s antioxidant blend includes vitamin C and an OPC blend (grape seed extract and maritime bark extract). This blend provides powerful flavonoids, catechins, and other antioxidant properties to support your body’s natural antioxidant defense mechanism.*

Research Brief
Osmolality is the measurement of solid particles in a liquid. Principles of chemistry teach us that a liquid will flow from a low osmolality environment to a high osmolality environment. This lowers the overall concentration of the solid particles and spreads out any associated charges of ions (electrolytes).

The average osmolality of blood is 250. LowOz™ has been tested at an osmolality of 150.* Water is driven to areas of higher osmolality. Since the drink will have a lower osmolality than the tissues, water will be absorbed into the tissue where it is needed. Research has shown the importance of proper hydration to help maintain optimal performance. In fact, dehydrating a muscle by as little as 3 percent can cause a 12 percent decrease in strength. Allowing water into the muscle tissue helps to balance the electrolytes, as well as providing an environment that may allow for further muscle growth and optimal recovery from exercise.

As we sweat, we lose water and important nutrients known as electrolytes. These electrolytes are necessary to regulate the flow of water across the cell membrane. Without the proper balance of electrolytes, our cells and tissues may become dehydrated. By combining potassium, sodium, and magnesium, LowOz™ is able to restore these electrolytes and balance out the fluids lost during exercise.

Research Brief

To achieve successful weight control, you must correct the balance between the amount of fat and calories consumed in the diet and the amount of fat and calories used in your body’s metabolic processes. Fat is stored in the body as triglycerides. These units are composed of three molecules of fatty acids attached to a glycerol molecule. Triglycerides are stored in cells called adipocytes that are grouped together to form adipose tissue, more commonly known as body fat. In a process called lipolysis, triglycerides are broken down to their constituent fatty acids and glycerol so the body can use them as energy.

You can enhance your body’s weight management by increasing your metabolism to achieve greater thermogenesis, the body’s natural process of using more energy and burning more fat. You can literally burn more fat by increasing your body’s heat production through thermogenesis. This raising of your body’s core temperature occurs naturally, especially after a meal, and some herbs and nutrients can promote it.

FAQs

Q: Can Power Burn be taken with other fat-burning products?

A: It is not recommended to use Power Burn capsules with any products that contain ephedra, caffeine, or other stimulants.

Q: Can Power Burn be given to children or teens?

A: Power Burn is not recommended for anyone under the age of 18. Q: Can pregnant or lactating women consume the Power Burn capsules? A: This product is not recommended for pregnant or lactating women.

Q: Can I take Power Burn capsules with dinner?

A: Because Power Burn contains some natural stimulants, taking the capsules later in the day may affect sleep. Taking Power Burn with breakfast and lunch is recommended.

Q: Can you burn calories with this product even if you don’t exercise?

A: Power Burn contains ingredients that induce thermogenesis, the state in which the body can burn fat more easily, with or without exercise. However, we recommend that all weight-loss efforts include a healthy diet and exercise program.

Q: What is the difference between Power Burn capsules and Chocolate Diet capsules?

A: Both products are ephedra-free and contain naturally occurring caffeine. The new Power Burn capsules contain a superior formula for healthy weight management. Key ingredients include yerba mate for thermogenesis, black tea instead of green tea, and chromium.

QuadPlex™- Pre and Post Workout Replenishmentstrength

Protein is the foundation for building lean muscle mass, so choosing a good protein source is extremely important            Xxtra QuadPlex

Most of the protein powders you find in stores contain whey protein concentrate with a small amount of whey protein isolate mixed in. Isolate is more expensive than concentrate because it contains more protein per serving. Usually, isolate contains 90-98% protein while whey concentrate contains 70-85%.

QuadPlex stands up to the test because it contains more isolate and utilizes a patented enzyme system to enhance the absorption of protein. QuadPlex gives you 28 grams of truly absorbable protein to support lean muscle mass.

All athletes try to prevent the loss of muscle, so the catabolic effect of using your muscle proteins for energy is not wanted by anyone! The BCAA’s (Branched Chain Amino Acids) required to maintain muscle tissue, preserve the muscle stores of Xxtra QuadPlexglycogen, and prevent muscle tissue breakdown during training) are utilized for energy instead of the muscle proteins. All good whey protein should contain plenty of BCAA’s.

With a special anti-aging blend of vitamins and minerals that protect you from free radical damage, no wonder you are looking stronger and younger each day! QuadPlex features a vanilla flavor.

Sean Smith is one of Unicity’s amazing Transformation Coaches. Over the past 3 years, he has led 245 people through our program and helped them transform their lives. He started coaching because he himself changed his life when he began bodybuilding and he is passionate about helping others improve their own lives.
But, even before Sean had success with lifting weights, he was an accomplished concert pianist. (He once toured Europe and played for the Pope!) His first piano lesson was at age 8 and he would practice 2 to 4 hours a day. Sean attributes his work ethic and his ability to stick to a task to his dedication to hours of piano practicing.
Sean started lifting weights at age 18 as a way to deal with stress, anxiety, and depression. He has continued with the sport because he is drawn to battling the voice inside that tells him to “give up”—yet he never does and never will. His determination and mental focus have been rewarded as he was recently selected to participate in the Arnold Classic competition, training with top bodybuilder Ben Pakulski, today’s equivalent to Arnold Schwarzenegger He took second place in the competition!

What a great example Sean is of how to Live Life Better!
