The Science of Fiber Supplements: FIBERLYZE!!


FIBERLYZE is a unique combination fiber supplement that contains both soluble and insoluble fiber.

It's been shown that the inclusion of soluble fiber from psyllium can dramatically reduce the risk of heart disease by suppressing cholesterol synthesis in the liver and reducing blood levels of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. Less LDL cholesterol means less atherogenic plaques in the blood vessels.

What most people don't know is that soluble fiber is also instrumental in any successful weightloss program. What? Fiber burns fat? Well, the beneficial bacteria of the colon have the ability to ferment soluble fiber. When this occurs, short chain fatty acids are liberated. These short chain fats can then enter the portal blood circulation and travel to the liver where they decrease the liver's output of glucose. Less circulating glucose means that less insulin is released and lower insulin levels in the blood mean that less fat is stored.

Not to be forgotten, diets that include sources of insoluble fiber also have tremendous health and performance benefits. Insoluble fiber promotes regular bowel movements, removes toxic wastes from the colon, and prevents colon cancer by maintaining optimal pH's in the intestines. When the colon is healthy and toxins are being efficiently removed from the body, muscle can be synthesized and repaired at maximal rates.

Adults 12 years and older:
Mix 1 teaspoon or 1 scoop in 8 oz of water 2-3 times daily

Mix this product with at least 8 oz (a full glass) of liquid. Drinking without enough liquid may cause choking. Dont take if you have difficulty swallowing.

Laxatives, including bulk fibers, may affect how well other medications work. If youre taking a prescription medicine by mouth, take this product at least 2 hours before or 2 hours after ingesting the prescribed medication. As your body adjusts to increased fiber intake, you may experience changes in bowel habits or minor bloating.

New Users: Start with 1/2 dose per day then gradually increase to 1 full dose 2-3 times per day.

The Science of Creatine Monohydrate-- CREALYZE!


For years people have asked me, "Dave, when are you gonna produce a creatine supplement?" Time and time again, I've always replied with the same answer: "I'll release a creatine supplement when I can produce one that's unique, original, and more effective that whats currently available." Well, that day has finally arrived and I feel confident in saying that I have finally found the worlds most perfect creatine monohydrate! Having made a statement like that, I'm sure you're extremely excited to find out everything there is to know about this unique discovery, so read on and enter the world of CREALYZE!


Creatine monohydrate is the most studied and proven form of creatine to hit the market since it was first introduced in the early 1990S. Whether someone has added baking soda, Alka Seltzer, attached an ester/ether linkage, no one has significantly improved on the original creatine monohydrate... until now.

CREALYZE has fixed the one major flaw in creatine technology - solubility! Together with a team of scientists, SPECIES was able to create the world's first 100% soluble creatine monohydrate. Not only is CREALYZE 100% soluble - it's also 100% stable. That means that none of it degrades into the toxic waste product creatinine! Think about all the creatine that falls to the bottom of the glass in those other creatine formulas on the market. The same thing happens in your digestive tract! And what good is a creatine supplement that never gets absorbed?


CREALYZE is a liquid creatine monohydrate supplement which is soluble, stable, and bio-available. It's so unique that it is protected by certified U.S. Patent #5,973,005. When 1oz of CREALYZE is mixed with 8oz of water, the solution is rendered completely soluble providing a crystal clear solution that's ready to drink. Each serving of CREALYZE contains 3 grams of 100% solubilized creatine monohydrate. That means more strength, greater endurance, and incredible pumps!

Remember, any administered creatine should be SOLUBLE, STABLE, and BIOAVAILABLE! When creatine monohydrate is administered in powder form, it loses most of its effect because only 35% is bio-available and the rest is either (1) rapidly deactivated (turned into creatinine) by the highly acid conditions in the stomach or (2) passes through the GI tract without ever being absorbed due to its insolubility (inability to dissolve in solution).


HIGH CAPACITY PHOSPHATE BUFFERS: CREALYZE is protected from the caustic stomach acids by a high-capacity phosphate buffer using the appropriate balance of molecular amounts of monobasic, dibasic, and tribasic phosphate salts. This incorporation of a phospate buffer serves two functions:
(1) Stabilization of the preparation (protecting the creatine monohydrate and preventing it from being converted to useless creatinine a waste product) and
(2) enhancement of athletic performance due to the powerful effects of phosphate loading on exercise output.

GLYCEROL: All creatine formulas require a delivery system to ensure that the creatine monohydrate makes it into the muscle cells where it can then be utilized. In order to avoid a sugar-driven vehicle, glycerol was chosen because it (1) helps facilitate the quick absorption of creatine into the bloodstream and
(2) it spikes insulin which, in turn, drives the creatine monohydrate into the muscle cells. Glycerol has also been quite extensively studied in endurance athletes as a hydration agent. It drives the creatine, phosphates, and water INSIDE your muscles where they can go to work.

PHOSPHATES: In the labs and in the gym, it's been shown that, inside the muscle cell, creatine combines with phosphates to create creatine-phosphate. It's the creatine-phosphate that helps regenerate ADP back into the high energy compound ATP (the only energy source the cell can use). Added phosphates, then, supply an extremely valuable substrate that helps facilitate the rapid synthesis of intramuscular creatine phosphate.

CREALYZE contains 32 servings per bottle. That's over a months supply!


Pour a full 1oz cap of CREALYZE into 8oz of water, stir, and watch the water turn completely clear. Drink.

The Science of CARBOLYZE: Waxy Maize/D-Ribose High Molecular Weight Carbohydrate replacement/recovery drink!


Carbolyze has the unique ability to rapidly shuttle nutrients, as well as other performance supplements (e.g. creatine), through the stomach and into the bloodstream where they are then delivered directly to the working muscles to boost performance, increase recovery time, and stimulate protein synthesis. Welcome to the future of carbohydrate replacement drinks!

CARBOLYZE contains two key recuperative ingredients:

Waxy Maize Starch is a long-chain, high molecular weight, carbohydrate that's 100 times larger than maltodextrin and 3000 times bigger than dextrose. Waxy maize starch is sugar-free, yet moves through the stomach 80% faster than either dextrose or maltodextrin and helps facilitate rapid glycogen resynthesis and nutrient uptake into the muscles. Gone are the days of bloating and cramping!

Here's a great analogy that perfectly explains the advantages of a high molecular weight carbohydrate such as waxy maize starch. Imagine you're swimming in the ocean and a cruise ship passes by. The sheer weight of the ship displacing all that water will cause a vacuum that will, very effectively, suck you into the wake of the ship. Now imagine that you're swimming in the water and a jet ski passes by. In comparison to the cruise ship, the Jet Ski barely weighs more than you do and, consequently, won't affect your position in the water. Similar to the cruise ship, waxy maize starch (because of its sheer size) pulls water as well as any other nutrients (e.g. amino acids, creatine, or glutamine) that are consumed with it into the blood stream and then, into the muscle cells where they can be used for muscle growth and repair.


D-Ribose is a naturally occurring 5-pentose carbohydrate molecule that's found in all living cells and that helps facilitate the production of ATP (the primary energy source for all cellular processes).

Dave Talks about the science of Essential Fatty Acids and the reasons you should choose OMEGALYZE!


OMEGALYZE - Bring Balance Back to Your Diet

OMEGALYZE contains an ideal ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. These fats, also known as the essential fatty acids (EFAs), help to lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, decrease inflammation, optimize hormone levels, and maximize muscle growth and repair. Omega-3 and Omega-6 fats are considered essential fatty acids (EFAs) since they are essential to human health. Because they can't be manufactured by the body, they must be obtained from the diet.

A healthy diet should consist of roughly equal amounts of omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. The typical American diet tends to contain 14 - 25 times more omega-6 fatty acids than omega-3 fatty acids, and many researchers believe this imbalance is a significant factor in the rising rate of chronic inflammatory disorders in the United States.

Numerous reliable studies show that adding omega-3 fatty acids to the diet can reduce the risk factors for coronary heart disease, arthritis, and certain cancers. Furthermore, many studies strongly suggest omega-3 fatty acids play a vital role in proper cognitive function (memory and thinking). For example, people who are deficient in omega-3 fatty acids demonstrate poor memory, mood swings, excess fatigue and other health related problems. You can balance your essential fatty acid levels in one simple bottle with OMEGALYZE.

OMEGALYZE -The Perfect Fat Loss Supplement

Although Omega-3 fatty acids are generally thought of as a supplement for cardiovascular support, the benefits of Omega 3 fatty acids go far beyond that. OMEGALYZE contains an ideal blend of essential fatty acids to help optimize the loss of bodyfat and mood stabilization during a pre-contest diet. For example, it was reported that a daily dose of omega-3 enriched fish oil combined with regular exercise provides significantly greater benefits for fat loss than exercise or fish oil alone.

In this study, overweight to obese adults participated in a 12 week intervention trial that examined the effect of omega-3 fish oil taken daily in combination with moderate aerobic exercise three times a week. These people were compared with three groups taking fish oil, sunflower oil or a combination of sunflower oil and exercise. At the end of the study, research showed that the fish oil and exercise group lost significantly more fat mass than any other group in the study.

More excitingly, the results showed that the total proportion of fat in the body, particularly in the abdominal region, was reduced significantly in the fish oil and exercise group, but not by fish oil or exercise alone. In the International Journal of Sports Medicine, researchers reported that when male volleyball players were administered fish oils (3 grams per day) in conjunction with a high protein, low carbohydrate diet - resulted in greater fat loss than a Mediterranean diet group (predominantly olive oil).

Diets rich in omega 3 fatty acids protect against metabolic dysregulation (insulin resistance and obesity) in humans. The anti-obesity and anti-diabetic effects of Omega 3 fatty acids includes enhancement of fat mobilization, increased insulin sensitivity, and increased mitochondria function (the energy machinery of the cell).

Fish oils contain two vital omega-3 intermediates: Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Both EPA and DHA form vital components within cell membranes that allow insulin to transport nutrients into cells. A recent study showed that testosterone levels are directly related to insulin sensitivity therefore, the better your insulin sensitivity the more testosterone you produce.

OMEGALYZE - Appetite Control

If you are dieting for a show, OMEGALYZE may reduce appetite. In one study, obese subjects on a calorie-restricted diet were divided into four groups (control, low omega 3 fish, high omega 3 fish, or fish oils). The subjects who ate diets rich in omega -3 fatty acids or whom consumed fish oils felt less hunger and more satiety immediately after and 2 hours after their counterparts fed with the low Omega-3 fatty acid diet. This observation indicates that omega 3 fatty acids reduce hunger signals. The researchers speculated that omega 3 fatty acids affect the transport of appetite-regulating molecules and changes in receptor affinity in the brain. Consuming supplemental omega 3 fatty acids may be perfect for pre-contest bodybuilder and all dieting individuals alike.

Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are, by definition, polyunsaturated fats that are essential to human health and that can't be manufactured by the body. There are 2 specific families of EFAs: Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.

(1) Linoleic Acid is an Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid that can be found in sunflower, safflower, corn, sesame, and other oils. The modern diet is overloaded with omega-6 fatty acids because of the reliance on grain-based sustenance such as breads, cereals, pastas, and cakes. To make matters worse, most of the omega-6-rich oils are also either highly processed and/or damaged by handling.

One specific omega-6 intermediate, gamma linolenic acid (GLA), found in evening primrose, has some interesting health-promoting effects in the body. Unlike most of the other pro-inflammatory omega-6 fats (such as arachidonic acid), GLA converts to prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) which acts as an anti-inflammatory, blood thinner, and blood vessel dilator. This makes GLA a valuable asset to any healthy supplement program.

(2) Alpha Linolenic Acid is an Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid that can be found in fatty fishes such as salmon, swordfish, herring, and mackerel as well as in seeds and nuts such as flax seed, walnuts, and almonds. Studies have shown that the alpha linolenic acid derivatives, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), found in fish and fish oils dramatically reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. According to the American Heart Association (AMA), omega-3 fatty acids decrease the risk of arrhythmias (which can lead to sudden cardiac death), decrease serum triglyceride levels, decrease the growth rate of atherosclerotic plaques, and they slightly lower blood pressure. More important to athletes, omega-3 fatty acids help repair damaged muscle cell membranes, increase insulin sensitivity, and provide building blocks for important prostaglandins and growth factors.


When evaluating which source of omega-3 oils to consume, it's important to acknowledge one very important fact: All omega-3 fatty acids are not created equal. While flax seed oil contains the highest naturally occurring source of alpha linolenic acid (ALA) - the parent omega - 3 it's important to remember that ALA must still be converted into the omega - 3 intermediates, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). The problem is that humans don't convert ALA very readily into DHA and EPA. Likewise, diets that are rich in trans-fatty acids make this fatty acid conversion even more difficult. A much better solution is to supplement with fish oils since they already contain rich, naturally occurring, sources of both DHA and EPA. Remember, it's the DHA and EPA that provides all the valuable cardio-protective effects.

Note, before purchasing any fish oil supplement, make sure it's in local apharmaceutical grade to ensure that it's pure and free of environmental toxins.

Deficiencies in any of the essential fatty acids (EFAs) will result in decreased muscle synthesis and repair (due to lack of raw materials), decreased rates of fatty acid oxidation (due to energy conservation mechanisms in the body), and decreases nd systemic hormone production.

Dave talks about the science of Joint Repair and explains why ARTHROLYZE is your best choice for joint preservation and pain free training!


ARTHROLYZE contains key raw materials necessary for complete joint and connective tissue repair. Only the highest potency ingredients with maximum effective dosages are provided for fast, efficient, resynthesis of damaged cartilage, ligaments and tendons. No other joint repair formula on the market has the high potency dosages in ARTHROLYZE!


GLUCOSAMINE SULFATE: Glucosamine has two critical functions in joint care: It rebuilds cartilage and it lubricates the joints.

a) In joint tissue, glycosaminoglycans are a major structural component of the surface cartilage. When this tissue breaks down during exercise, the body uses glucosamine sulfate to repair the damage. Because of the increased demand for glucosamine sulfate, large supplemental amounts (4000-8000mg per day) can help facilitate the repair of joint cartilage and connective tissue.

b) Supplemental glucosamine sulfate lubricates the joints by stimulating the production of joint-cushioning synovial fluid.

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane): MSM is an organic, non-toxic, substance comprised of approximately 1/3 sulfur. It's important to remember that sulfur can be found in countless tissues of the human body including the structural proteins in joints and connective tissue. Taken in the right quantities (2-4 grams per day), MSM provides enough sulfur to repair damaged muscle and to rebuild injured joints. Let's not forget that sulfur is also a significant component of collagen, which makes it vital to the formation and repair of cartilage.

CHONDROITIN SULFATE: Chondroitin Sulfate is another key component of cartilage that helps keep it healthy by drawing fluid (particularly water) into the surrounding connective tissue. Research suggests that chondroitin sulfate may also prevent the breakdown of connective tissue and help the body rebuild new cartilage.

CALCIUM FRUCTOBORATE (FruiteX-B®): Calcium fructoborate is the only food-form source of boron available for dietary supplements. Its unique calcium-boron conglomerate supports vitamin D metabolism, calcium metabolism, collagen integrity, prostate health, as well as joint and bone health. This patented extract is water soluble and it's efficiently absorbed into the blood stream in its intact form. In clinical studies with arthritis patients, doses of just 6mg per day (the dosage in ARTHROLYZE) resulted in reduced joint pain, less stiffness, and increased flexibility.

Dave Palumbo explains the science of monounsaturated fats and and benefits of monounsaturated fats.


Macadamia nut oil has the highest concentration of monounsaturated fats (oleic acid) than any other available oil. This incredible omega-9 fat, oleic acid, has documented cancer preventative and heart protective properties. In fact, it's considered the gold standard for reducing inflammation and restoring health to our internal environment. Macadamia nut oil is so high in monounsaturated fats (84-85%) that it even surpasses extra virgin olive oil (65-74%).

How about this interesting fact? Our hunter-gatherer ancestors ate an equal balance (1:1 ratio) of linoleic acid (Omega-6) to alpha linolenic acid (Omega-3) essential fatty acids (EFAs). Junk food, rampant vegetable oil use, and the feeding of grain to food animals (even fish) have resulted in our current consumption ratios rising to a scary 20:1 ratio.

What's the best source of essential fatty acids (EFAs) that delivers an equivalent amount of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fats? Flax seed oil, you might suggest? The answer is a resounding, NO! Flax seed oil, while being a healthy source of Omega-3 fats, has a very low percentage of Omega-6 fats. Macadamia nut oil has the perfect ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids, 1:1.

With regard to cooking, macadamia nut oil has an extremely high smoke point (410 degrees), which means it's excellent for stir-fry and baking. Olive oil has a much lower smoke point (325 degrees or less) and it degrades when used in cooking.

Finally, macadamia nut oil has a sweet buttery taste, is resistant to oxidation, and is extremely high in vitamin E (four times higher than olive oil) making it the ideal heart-healthy, performance-enhancing, fat.

Dave Palumbo explains the science of chelated minerals, vitamin D, and silica extracts; and why SPECIES Mineralyze is your best fit for all 3 of these needs.


MINERALYZE is a 100% chelated multi-mineral formula thats high in both calcium, magnesium, and many other trace elements. Vitamin D, an often deficient fat-soluble vitamin, is also included to ensure optimal calcium utilization, general health, and recovery from vigorous training.Why Chelated Minerals are Absorbed More Effectively by the BodyMinerals are inorganic elements that are essential constituents of all cells. They contribute from 60% to 80% of all the inorganic material in the human body (particularly the teeth, nails, bones, soft tissues, muscles, nerve cells, enzymes, hormones and blood). Although minerals only comprise 4-5% of our body weight, we cannot exist without them.

Minerals and trace elements serve as vital catalysts for the biological reactions that take place within the body. Minerals are also necessary in maintaining a healthy acid-base balance, play an important role in regulating blood volume and maintain the delicate water balance in our bodys tissues.

The term bioavailability refers to the degree to which a particular nutrient is available for use in the body. There are many factors which influence bioavailability, including the actual compound form of the mineral or trace element. The absorption of minerals and trace elements (excluding electrolytes) is generally less efficient than that of other nutrients.

Chelating mineral supplements (linking them to amino acids) ensures the highest, most dependable, probability of absorption. Since most forms of inorganic minerals are positively charged, by combining them with negatively charged amino acids (amino acid chelate), we greatly increase the bioavailability of these minerals.

Preparing a mineral complex as an amino acid chelate has two very important advantages since it provides a bond thatsJust strong enough to hold the mineral and the chelated amino acid together within the stomach yet just weak enough to make its central mineral ion available for absorption within the intestines.


maintains total body health
normal growth and development
keeping the bones and teeth strong (they contain 99% of the body's calcium, the remaining 1% is in blood)
ensures the proper functioning of muscles and nerves
keeps the heart beating
helping blood clotting and regulating blood pressure
proper iron metabolism
maintains the action of a number of hormones (particularly those associated with the thyroid and parathyroid glands)
important to cell structure
proper absorption of vitamin B12
helps neutralize acid waste buildup from protein metabolism, lactic acid buildup and stress (this spare calcium in the long bones)

Magnesium supplements have been used to promote healthy teeth and bones, treat muscle spasms, relieve premenstrual pain, and lower high blood pressure in patients with low magnesium levels. Magnesium has also been used to prevent premature labor and low birth weight.

FACT: Over 87% of Americans are deficient in Vitamin D! Vitamin D (Vitamin D3 being the active form) is used for treating weak bones (osteoporosis), bone pain (osteomalacia), bone loss in people with a condition called hyperparathyroidism, and an inherited disease (osteogenesis imperfecta) in which the bones are especially brittle and easily broken. It is also used for preventing falls and fractures in people at risk for osteoporosis, and preventing low calcium and bone loss (renal osteodystrophy) in people with kidney failure.

Vitamin D is used for conditions of the heart and blood vessels, including high blood pressure and high cholesterol. It is also used for diabetes, obesity, muscle weakness, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, bronchitis, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and tooth and gum disease.

Some people use vitamin D3 for skin conditions including vitiligo, scleroderma, psoriasis, actinic keratosis, and lupus vulgaris.

It is also used for boosting the immune system, preventing autoimmune diseases, and preventing cancer.

Because vitamin D is involved in regulating the levels of minerals such as phosphorous and calcium, it is used for conditions caused by low levels of phosphorous (familial hypophosphatemia and Fanconi syndrome) and low levels of calcium (hypoparathyroidism and pseudohypoparathyroidism).

Zinc is a strong antioxidant, zinc protects the body against damaging free radicals and it boosts the bodys immune system. It helps heal burns and wounds (and thus muscle), offers some protection against common infections such as colds or flu, and it may be effective in the prevention and/or treatment of age-related macular degeneration (an eye disease), infertility, hair loss, anorexia nervosa (an eating disorder), prostate enlargement, and common skin problems like acne.

Iron supplements are most often prescribed to treat iron deficiency anemia. A lack of iron leads to low oxygen carrying capacity due to decreases in RBC formation. Recently, its been demonstrated that upwards of 70% of competitive athletes are iron deficient.

Copper is one of the most important blood antioxidants. A copper deficiency causes higher serum cholesterol levels along with the lesions similar to those seen in coronary artery disease.

Supplements of this trace mineral have been used to prevent cancer, to improve blood sugar control, and to treat arthritic symptoms.

This trace mineral is necessary for proper insulin sensitivity, and it may help prevent or treat low blood sugar levels and diabetes. It may also offer protection against heart disease by lowering blood cholesterol levels.

A great antioxidant, selenium may help protect the body against cancer, premature aging, and degenerative diseases such as heart disease and arthritis.

Iodine is an important component in the production of thyroxin (thyroid hormone) the hormone responsible for maintaining an individuals metabolism or basal metabolic rate (BMR)

Potassium supplements are most often prescribed to treat potassium deficiency caused by chronic diuretic use. Adequate potassium intake is necessary to maintain proper intramuscular fluid balance.

Boron is helpful in preventing osteoporosis and improving symptoms of osteoarthritis and joint repair.

Molybdenum is a mineral that is present in very small quantities in the body. Its involved in many important biological processes, possibly including development of the nervous system, waste processing in the kidneys, and energy production in cells.

The durable horsetail plant is a superb source of silica and calcium, necessary for bone and connective tissue repair and maintenance. Horsetail has traditionally been used to speed recovery from fractures and torn ligaments. Although abundant in nature, silica is poorly absorbed by the body. Silica is essential for healthy hair, skin and nails. Silica works on a cellular level and is part of the cartilage-forming cells and the fiber-building cells that form collagen.

Dave discusses the science of LIPOLYZE eVOLVED and SOMALYZE Gen2


SOMALYZE GEN2: Nighttime Fat Burner/Sleep Aid


SOMALYZE GEN2 Nighttime Fat Burner/Sleep Aid

SOMALYZE GEN2 is a non-stimulant based fat burner that, simultaneously, functions as a sleep aid. The following paragraphs describe the unique blend of ingredients in SOMALYZE and the complex mechanisms of how they function to metabolize fat while you sleep.

Oleoylethanolamide (OEA)

OEA is is an endogenous peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPAR-á) agonist synthesized in the intestines. PPAR-á is highly expressed in muscle, the liver, kidneys, and heart and is involved in the regulation of lipid metabolism, specifically the transcription of the genes involved in the beta-oxidation (burning) of fatty acids and lipogenesis (storage of fatty acids).

OEA has also been shown to have anorexic properties, meaning it decreases food intake and sends hunger-curbing messages to the brain.

If all that weren't enough, OEA can also lower lower blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels.


Inside the cell, L-carnitine transports long chain fats into the mitochondria (energy-producing chamber) where they are then oxidized into ATP. In theory, if we can increase the amount of L-carnitine within the muscle, we can theoretically increase the quantity of fatty acids that get oxidized. Until recently the problem has been that regular L-carnitine and even the more exotic acetyl-L-carnitine lacked the ability to penetrate skeletal muscle tissue (which is where most fat oxidation occurs).

On the other hand, Propionyl-L-carnitine, a relatively new version of L-carnitine, has important effects on skeletal and cardiac muscle. Back in 1990, a human study demonstrated that propionyl-L-carnitine could combat the destructive effects of low oxygen status and muscle fatigue in heart and skeletal muscle. More relevant to our discussion is the fact that propionyl-L-carnitine has a tremendous ability to penetrate skeletal muscle and thus facilitate the transport of long chain fatty acids into the mitochondria.


GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid) is an amino acid-derived neurotransmitter - a chemical that transmits messages between nerve cells - that's found predominantly in the hypothalamus of the brain. This is an important fact since the hypothalamus is located in a region of the brain (posterior lobe) that's responsible for visceral functions such as sleep cycles, body temperature and the activity of the pituitary gland.

The pituitary gland is the master endocrine gland affecting all hormonal functions of the body. Numerous studies have shown that as GABA levels increase in this posterior region of the brain, plasma growth hormone (GH) levels also increase. This is significant for the athlete since GH dramatically mobilizes fat and rebuilds damaged muscle tissue.

GABA also has a slight relaxing or sedative effect on the body which makes it ideal for use at bedtime. Many people report improved sleep patterns and a well rested feeling upon arising. Colorful and somewhat lucid dreams are also frequently reported. Remember, as your quality of sleep increases, your ability to recover from stress and strenuous exercise also increases. Recent research has also demonstrated that well-rested individuals have much higher levels of appetite-suppressing leptins in the body the more you sleep, the less you'll feel like eating.

Aside from the positive effects of burning stored body fat and getting a restful night sleep, individuals may experience some of GABAs other unique qualities. Some people report a skin surface tingling sensation for a few minutes after taking GABA. This is not uncommon and can be likened to a niacin "flush". Some also report a slight shortness of breath for a few minutes after taking GABA. This also is not uncommon and is nothing that is of serious concern.


The pineal gland (located in the brain) synthesizes and secretes the hormone, melatonin a structurally simple hormone that communicates information about environmental lighting to various parts of the body and then establishes specific circadian rhythms that inform the body whether it is day or night. This light-transducing ability of the pineal gland has led some to call the pineal gland the third eye.

Normally in the body, the timing of melatonin secretion is controlled by neural pathways that run from the retina of the eye to the hypothalamus and from the hypothalamus to the pineal gland. Interestingly, it's the suprachiasmatic nucleus of the hypothalamus that controls bodily circadian cycles such as core body temperature, cortisol secretion, sleepiness, and melatonin secretion.

Melatonin preserves mitochondrial homeostasis, reduces free radical generation and maintains ATP synthesis by stimulating electron flow through complex I and IV of the electron transport chain, even in the presence of uncoupling agents such as Usnic Acid and DNP.

When taken in supplement form, melatonin appears to be remarkably safe. Because of this fact, it's been used for years in the treatment of certain sleep and mood disorders. One rather common condition that involves the disruption of natural circadian rhythms is "jet lag". When traveling across time zones, it's been repeatedly demonstrated that ingestion of melatonin close to the target bedtime of the visited location significantly alleviates most symptoms of "jet lag".

Once again, a restful night sleep significantly increases the body's ability to repair itself and more sleep translates to less hunger. Finally, don't be surprised if you experience vivid, colorful, dreams while taking SOMALYZE.


Phosphatidylcholine and Phosphatidylethanolamine have been shown to reduce elevations of stress hormones such as ACTH and cortisol that are associated with strenuous exercise. This is an extremely important finding, since age-related increases in the cortisol/DHEA ratio are a significant biomarker of aging. This changing ratio increased cortisol and decreased DHEA reflects the toxic effects on the body to prolonged increases in cortisol levels (hypercortisolemia). These effects can ultimately manifest as the "Cushingoid" appearance (bloated face, fat stomach, and soft look) of many people over the age of 50. Consequently, many studies have demonstrated that the cortisol-blocking effects of phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine may profoundly delay these adverse effects of aging.

Remember, whenever we exercise, the trauma of the workout creates stress in the body. In response, the adrenal glands release tons of the stress hormone, cortisol. Cortisol is a catabolic hormone that breaks down muscle, suppresses the immune system and precipitates the storage of ugly abdominal fat. Phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine can blunt this cortisol releasing effect to exercise and thus greatly enhance the body's ability to repair itself and to suppress the accumulation of annoying body fat.

Lipolyze e2: Non-Stimulant Fat Burner

LIPOLYZE e2 Non-stimulant Fat Burner

LIPOLYZE e2 can be best categorized as a caloric wasting compound. Whereas most fat burning formulations on today's market depend on stimulants such as ephedra (rarely seen today), caffeine, PEA, synephrine, and other CNS agonists; at SPECIES we reject the premise that the only effective way to burn fat is to "stimulate" the body into submission. While stimulants do increase metabolic rate, they also increase the production of catabolic (muscle wasting) hormones such as cortisol. As cortisol levels rise in the body, lean muscle tissue is broken down, immune system function is suppressed and dangerous abdominal belly fat deposition is increased.

Remember, the quantity of lean muscle in the body is highly correlated with the basal metabolic rate (BMR). Less muscle means a lower BMR! If stimulant-based fat burners are used to help shed unwanted body fat, there's a very good chance that, once they're discontinued, metabolic rate will be significantly lower and the predisposition to gain unwanted body fat will be significantly higher.

If this scenario wasn't bad enough, stimulants raise blood pressure, increase heart rate, and increase anxiety levels. Therefore, individuals with a history of heart disease, high blood pressure, or brain chemistry abnormalities should certainly steer clear of these compounds.

The following paragraphs explain the various compounds found in the all-new LIPOLYZE-e2 formula.


(a) IRVINGIA GABONESIS (African Mango)

Fat cells (adipocytes) secrete a hormone called leptin that tells our brain we have eaten enough. Leptin can also facilitate the breakdown of stored triglycerides in these fat cells. Overweight individuals have startlingly high blood levels of leptin, indicating that their cells have become resistant to the eptin that is supposed to prevent them from overeating.

An extract from African mango called Irvingia gabonensis has been shown to help support leptin sensitivity in overweight people. In addition to supporting healthy leptin sensitivity, irvingia has demonstrated the following beneficial effects on key aspects of metabolism:

Glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase is an enzyme involved in the complex biochemical process that converts ingested starch and sugar calories to stored body fat. Irvingia has been shown to reduce the activity of glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase which may reduce the amount of carbs stored as fat.

Irvingia has alpha-amylase-inhibiting properties which can help support a slowing of the rate of carbohydrate absorption from the intestines and thus a decrease in rate at which the fat-storing hormone, insulin, is released.

Adiponectin is a hormone involved in helping to maintain insulin sensitivity. Better insulin sensitivity means less fat storage. Scientific data suggests that irvingia helps support healthy adiponectin levels.


OEA is is an endogenous peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPAR-A) agonist synthesized in the intestines. PPAR-A is highly expressed in muscle, the liver, kidneys, and heart and is involved in the regulation of lipid metabolism, specifically the transcription of the genes involved in the beta-oxidation (burning) of fatty acids and lipogenesis (storage of fatty acids).

OEA has also been shown to have anorexic properties, meaning it decreases food intake and sends hunger-curbing messages to the brain.

If all that weren't enough, OEA can also lower lower blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels.


NEW RESEARCH shows that the combination of ACETYL L-CARNITINE and R-LIPOIC ACID will regenerate new mitochondria, stabilize the membranes of existing mitochondria, and prevent oxidative damage from free radicals. More stable, more efficient, more prolific mitochondria will oxidize fats more efficiently which ultimately will lead to greater fat loss.

Likewise, healthier mitochondria slow the aging process of cells meaning that the 1-2 punch of Acetyl L-Carnitine and R-Lipoic Acid can have anti-aging effects on the cells of the body. Just imagine, you can burn unwanted bodyfat while, simultaneously, increasing the lifespan of your cells.



Inside the cell, L-carnitine transports long chain fats into the mitochondria (energy-producing chamber) where they are then oxidized into ATP. In theory, if we can increase the amount of L-carnitine within the muscle, we can theoretically increase the quantity of fatty acids that get oxidized. Until recently the problem has been that regular L-carnitine lacked the ability to penetrate skeletal muscle tissue (which is where most fat oxidation occurs). The fat soluble forms of L-carnitine, acetyl l-carnitine and propionyl l-carnitine greatly increase absorbability and penetration into skeletal muscle and thus facilitate the transport of long chain fatty acids into the mitochondria.

Whenever fatty acid oxidation is increased, there's a concomitant increase in dangerous free radicals. Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant and neutralizes these dangerous rogue electrons.


The thyroid gland releases a hormone known commonly as thyroxin (T4 for short). T4 is an inactive form of thyroid hormone that must ultimately be converted into triiodothyronine (T3), the active thyroid hormone. Whenever any sort of diet is initiated, the body's natural inclination is to slow down the conversion of T4 (inactive) to T3 (active). Ultimately, when this happens, metabolic rate slows and fat losses crawl to a halt.

In India, the Guggul is a tree which exudes a resinous sap out of incisions that are made in its bark. This resin has been used for centuries as part of Indias traditional medicine called Ayurveda. This resinous sap can be processed, purified, and then standardized for its active components Guggulsterones Z and Guggulsterones E. These two fractionations have the unique ability to support thyroid function by increasing the conversion of inactive T4 into active T3 and, in doing so, restore normal thyroid function to the dieting athlete.



Green Tea Extract (Camellia sinesis leaf) is a powerful antioxidant similar to vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene. However, researchers have suggested that the active ingredient called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) may, amazingly, have 200 times the antioxidant properties of vitamin E. A study from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition revealed that green tea extract caused a significant increase in energy expenditure and fatty acid oxidation. The researchers noted a 4% increase in 24-hour energy expenditure which actually translates to a 35-43% increase in daytime thermogenesis. What's even more significant to cardiac and thyroid patients is the fact that none of the research subjects reported any of the side effects rapid heart rate, elevated blood pressure, or increased anxiety that are commonly seen with the multitude of stimulant-based fat burners.

Dave Palumbo explains the science of his pre-workout ultra-concentrate NITROLYZE (stimulant free) and NITROLYZE-S (with caffeine). Nitric Oxide Boost, Acid-Buffering endurance, and supreme mental focus


NITROLYZE (stimulant-free) and NITROLYZE-S (with buffered caffeine) are the most potent ultra-concentrate pre-workout formulas on the market. NITROLYZE and NITROLYZE-S both contain effective dosages of all ingredients with exact amounts listed right on the label. No "proprietary blends" that contain nothing but "pixie dust" and loads of stimulants. SPECIES Nutrition's NITROLYZE formulas address 3 specific areas of concern to maximize performance in the gym.

Increased pumps via increased nitric oxide release
Increased endurance by buffering acid buildup in the muscle cells
Increase energy and focus

L-ARGININE: L-arginine is converted in the body into a chemical called nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to open wider for improved blood flow. L-arginine also stimulates the release of growth hormone-- a fat-metabolizing, muscle-building, hormone.

CARNOSYN B-ALANINE: Much of beta-alanine's effects are realized by boosting the synthesis of the dipeptide, carnosine, inside the muscle cell. Researchers have shown that when supplementing with beta-alanine for just 4 weeks, carnosine concentrations can increase by 42-65%. After 10-12 weeks, carnosine concentrations increased up to 80%. Carnosine has the ability to buffer acid buildup within the muscle cells thus increasing strength, power and muscular endurance.

L-TYROSINE: L-Tyrosine is utilized for the synthesis of catecholamine neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine, epinephrine and dopamine. These neurotransmitters dramatically enhance focus and concentration "in the heat of battle" in the gym.

CREATINE MONOHYDRATE: Ingested creatine monohydrate is converted to creatine phosphate inside the muscle cells. Creatine phosphate replenishes the body's reserves of ATP; the muscles' energy source for movement. More ATP means more endurance.

CHOLINE BITARTRATE: Choline bitartrate is a dietary supplement that can lead to an increase in the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, which helps with mental focus and reduction of fatigue.

RED BEET ROOT JUICE: Beetroot juice has been found to improve performance in athletes, because of its abundance of nitrites that, ultimately, lead to dramatic increases in nitric oxide release. Beet Root Juice also increases the uptake of oxygen leading to greater endurance and stamina.

AGMATINE: is naturally produced in the body by the breakdown of arginine. Supplementing with agmatine sulfate does many of the same things that arginine does, but more effectively. Agmatine sulfate boosts muscle pumps in a several ways. (1) Agmatine sulfate improves nutrient partitioning, leading to more stored muscle glycogen and, consequently, more water stored inside the muscle. (2) Agmatine sulfate increases nitric oxide production by acting as a competitive inhibitor of the enzyme nitric oxide synthase. (3) Agmatine sulfate may play a role in the hypothalamic control of luteinizing hormone (which increases testosterone production) and growth hormone (GH) release, leading to increased levels of both of these hormones.

CINNULIN PF: Cinnulin is a cinnamon extract that acts as an insulin sensitizing agent ensuring that carbohydrates are properly shuttled into muscle cells where they can be used as energy while training.

XANTINOL NICOTINATE: (or xanthinol niacinate) is a vasodilator that’s a combination of xanthinol and niacin (nicotinic acid. In fact, Xanthinol nicotinate is the most potent form of niacin. It passes easily through cell membranes and can act inside the cell. Scientific research has shown that xanthinol nicotinate: (1)increases glucose metabolism (2) improves ATP levels (3) stimulates blood circulation

Cistanche Tubulosa P.E.: Cistanche tubulosa improves renal (kidney) function, enhances memory, prevents senile dementia, has anti-fatigue capabilities, increase sexual performance via enhanced blood flow, and can regulate the immune function.

Rauwolfia Canescens: (Rauwolscine) contains the active compound, alpha-yohimbine, which blocks alpha-2 receptors (not alpha-1) on blood vessel walls. This increases blood flow to the muscles as well as the genitals making it a fantastic sexual aid as well.

CAFFEINE: Caffeine is a mild central nervous system stimulant (found only in NITROLYZE-S) which aids with mental focus, muscular endurance, and strength generation.

WARNING: Don’t take NITROLYZE-S too close to bedtime. If you work out in the evening, NITROLYZE (without caffeine) may be a better choice).
