I have been lifting weights for fifteen years, and most of that time was spent training as a natural powerlifter. I've experimented with hundreds of supplements over the years, some good, some worthless. But the best supplement I've ever come across is Animal Pak. I've been using Animal Pak since I started as a powerlifter. It was and still is the foundation upon which I rest my nutritional regimen. Fancy supplements come and go, but the basics stay the same. The Animal Pak is king.

There's nothing like it in the world. For you, getting it is more important than getting anything else. We're talking about the pump. Just the thought of blood flooding into your muscles, fueling them with nutrients and oxygen and giving you that engorged feeling gets you fired up every time. Hey, it's time to hit the weights. It's time to get your pump on.
Since 1984, Animal Pak has been helping competitive bodybuilders get the most out of their freakish training routines by providing all the nutrition they need, plus some they didn't know they needed. For 17 straight years, people like you have made Animal Pak the #1 selling training pak in the world. In fact, more competitive bodybuilders have cut their teeth on the Animal Pak than any other bodybuilding supplement in history. Why? Simple. Animal Pak gets the job done. It works. First time. Every time. Animal Pak has stood the test of time.
See, nature, in all her ingenuity, has designed the human body as the ultimate training machine. Since the dawn of mankind, our bodies have changed very little. And when it comes to growing our muscles in a freakish way, we still need the right combination and mega-doses of essential amino acids, carbs, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids (EFA's). Only Animal Pak has everything you need.
OK, so you think your regular multi is going to cut it? Get real, Jack. You want massive size and mega-strength and only Animal Pak can deliver. Each Animal Pak starts with mega-doses of necessary vitamins and minerals. Yeah, vitamins and minerals. Vitamins (organic) and minerals (inorganic) are pharmacological agents and catalysts. They can exert significant ergogenic/anabolic benefits and function as the spark plugs for activating all the necessary chemical reactions which make training and building muscle possible.
If you're training or dieting hard for a contest, the first thing that happens when you don't take the Animal Pak is that nutritional gaps begin to form. Why should you care? Because over time, these deficiencies continue to grow. Eventually, your body will stop functioning at its optimum level. In other words, you hit the wall, your development reaches a plateau. In fact, even if only one key nutrient is missing from your diet, your body could shut down the anabolic drive needed to build muscle so that it can support more critical metabolic processes. When this happens, you stop growing.
Research has proven that strength athletes such as bodybuilders and powerlifters, due to the intensity and frequency of their training programs, have higher nutritional requirements than regular athletes. Studies have shown that these unique needs are greatly increased for bodybuilders who regularly compete and need to diet down. During calorie-restricted diets (diets which tend to be repetitive and monotonous, e.g., rice and chicken), the potential for nutritional deficiencies increase dramatically.
More alarming is the fact that championship-caliber bodybuilders, even when supplementing with a regular multivitamin, were still experiencing significant nutritional deficiencies. A basic multivitamin supplement won't be enough. Competitive bodybuilders know that a superior multivitamin is the first line of defense. This fact is confirmed by studies which have revealed that 100% of Olympic weightlifters and over 90% of competitive male and female bodybuilders use a vitamin/mineral supplement like Animal Pak.
These nutritional gaps not only affect your performance and size, but they begin to impact the way your other supplements work. For many of today's supplements to work efficiently, your body needs to be running on all cylinders. Nutritional gaps mean that your supplements may be rendered ineffective. For example, many supplements (e.g., prohormones) rely on enzymes and other substances in your body to "activate" them. Poor nutrition means poor conversion and activation of expensive supplements. Animal Pak is your insurance policy to prevent this from happening.
One other reason to take Animal Pak daily: drug-induced nutrient depletion. Pharmaceutical drug use can lead to vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Relying on "science or gear to get you huge can obviously exacerbate this problem. Even common pharmaceuticals and OTC's such as aspirin, ibuprofen, antidepressants, and cholesterol-lowering drugs can deplete your body of folic acid, iron, potassium, and important vitamins. If you use drugs of any kind, this is another reason to supplement with Animal Pak.
With Animal Pak, you get plenty of everything you need. And a few extras. Animal Pak features performance optimizers such as pyridoxine alpha-ketoglutarate (PAK), IGF colostrum, nucleotides, lipotropics, L-arginine, Protogen A, eleuthero, and the like. In every pack, you get a vast arsenal of over 55 key ingredients that are delivered in the right amounts at the right time, every time. Each of the 11 tablets included in each pak has been specifically formulated to deliver the goods.
Consider the Animal Pak as the cast iron skillet of your supplement program, your body's first line of defense. If you train with weights, then you absolutely need to train with the Animal Pak. Remember, while most supplements have come and gone, precious few have stood the test of time. When you're ready for the best, step up to the most trusted name in serious bodybuilding nutrition: Animal Pak.

Animal Pak FAQ's:
Why cant I just use a regular one-a-day type multivitamin?
You can, but do you want to? Typical one-a-day type multis are made for Joe Couchpotato. They have 100% of the RDA in many vitamins and minerals. Listen, do you take 100% of the Daily Reference Value for protein which is 50 grams? No. You take more because youre a serious lifter. Serious lifters need protein. The same applies to your multi. Only Animal Pak was designed for the serious bodybuilder and strength athlete. Harder training athletes need more vitamins and minerals and other nutrients than sedentary individuals. So if your multi is one or two pills or even three pills, then its time to consider what youre doing.
Do I have to take 2 paks a day?
No. For the majority of lifters, one pack a day will do. Elite athletes (those preparing for a bodybuilding show or a powerlifting competition, for example) should take two packs daily.
Is Animal Pak a multivitamin?
Yes and no. One of its component is a complete and comprehensive multivitamin thats true. In fact, as a multivitamin alone, nothing comes close to Animal Pak in terms of potency as explained above. Thats why Animal Pak is the #1 selling training pack in the world. But Animal Pak isnt just a multi. It contains a range of essential and non-essential amino acids, digestive enzymes, electrolytes, antioxidants, lipotropics, and other nutrients to support lifters. Animal Pak is a complete training pack.
Do I cycle the Pak?
No. Because it has an important multivitamin component, you should take it every day.
Animal Pak is one of the more expensive multis. Is it worth it?
If youre going for the cheapest, then Animal Pak isnt for you. If youre not serious about training, then Animal Pak isnt for you. If you like shopping at the dollar store, then pick any daily multi. But if you want quality, then Animal Pak is the only choice. Most guys think they can skimp on the multi. They couldnt be more wrong. A multi is probably the most important single supplement you can buy. So it makes sense to go with quality and a proven track record. Thats why more IFBB Pros and Olympia competitors use Animal Pak than any other multi. Thats why its been rated as the best by athletes everywhere. Thats why Animal Pak has been around for all these years. It flat out works. What more do you need to know?
