A very rapidly absorbing protein source perfect for post-training! It contains almost no fat making this a very lean protein, perfect for anyone looking for a clean high percentage protein supplement.

It is a complete, high-quality protein that contains all of the essential amino acids. It is also very digestible and absorbed from your gut quickly compared with other types of protein.
It is great for anyone in a muscle-building or fat-loss phase. Increased protein consumption can help you hit your daily protein needs, prevent muscle break down and even improve satiety.

ATP Science Creatine Monohydrate:
What is Creatine Monohydrate?
Creatine Monohydrate is a supplement that is used to increase muscle strength and performance! It is one of the most commonly researched supplements and has been proven to be effective through hundreds of independent research studies.
Creatine is formed using 3 different Amino Acids. These Amino Acids are L-Arginine, L-Glycine and L-Methionine. 95% of Creatine is stored in skeletal muscle.
Benefits of Supplementing Creatine:
Creatine provides a performance benefit as it not only helps build more ATP molecules in our muscles (energy molecules) but also increases the rate at which they re-synthesis. Creatine also increases insulin-like growth factor which helps promote muscle growth. Creatine can also aid in recovery, brain function, blood sugar optimisation and fatigue!
Does Creatine make me gain weight?
No Creatine does not make you gain weight! It helps the body increase its stores of a molecule called phosphocreatine, which is used for energy during high-intensity exercise!
When you take creatine, your muscles may hold more water, which in some cases may result in a slight increase in the scale number, however, this is not body fat and is only water in the muscles. This increase in water weight is only temporary!
Thorne Magnesium Bisglycinate:
What is Magnesium?
Magnesium is a vital mineral that plays a role in many bodily functions, including the formation of bones, regulation of muscle and nerve function, maintenance of a healthy heart rhythm, and support for a healthy immune system.
Benefits of Supplementing Magnesium:
Here are some of the benefits associated with magnesium supplementation:
- Improved bone health: Magnesium is an essential mineral for bone health and may help to prevent osteoporosis in older adults.
- Improved heart health: Magnesium may help to lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease by improving blood vessel function and reducing inflammation.
- Reduced risk of migraines: Some studies have shown that magnesium supplementation may help to reduce the frequency and severity of migraines.
- Improved mood: Magnesium may help to improve mood and reduce symptoms of depression by regulating neurotransmitters and reducing inflammation.
- Improved muscle recovery: Magnesium can help muscles recover and repair more efficiently.
- Improved sleep: Magnesium can help balance cortisol levels which can lead to improved and deeper sleep.
This is the go-to supplement for muscle recovery! Thorne’s Magnesium Glycinate binds Magnesium to the amino acid Glycine to enhance the absorption of Magnesium!
When looking to buy a magnesium supplement it is important to look at what that company is binding their magnesium to (in Thorne’s case it is Glycine bound). Glycine plays a huge role in the body synthesising glutathione, synovial fluid & acting as an NMDA receptor antagonist.

Adrenal Switch is a completely natural adrenal formula perfect for almost anyone. Adrenal Switch can be used post-workout to improve recovery by stimulating muscle protein synthesis, lowering cortisol and replenishing lost magnesium while training to avoid cramps and address the hormonal aspect of recovery.
