By Janine Rotter, Director of Fitness Nutrition for UNBOWED
Your body requires a healthy, balanced diet with sufficient nutrients to help it carry out routine tasks. The importance of supplements, such as additional protein, vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids, is to aid your body with its internal transformation. The key benefits of a supplement regimen include cellular fortification, repair, and regeneration.
Our bodies were built to move, and we were made to set goals and surpass them. UNBOWED supplements will help take your goals to the next level.
UNBOWED supplements are made for all wolves—the alpha, the beta, the lone wolf...all body types, all activities, all disciplines, all hunts. We take pride in producing the best supplements to support your training.
Our complete line of non-proprietary blend BCAA, PRE-Workout formulas, and Grass-Fed Whey Protein are options that are safe and proven, vegan-friendly, and gluten-free.
All our supplements are manufactured right here in the USA, in an FDA registered and certified facility, and are Good Manufacturing Practice Certified. This certification allows us to guarantee that we are meeting safety measures. Furthermore, we only use ingredients made in the USA. ‘Merica!
We disclose everything. With our non-proprietary blend performance supplements, you know exactly what you're getting. We don't hide what's in our formula because we believe that the best way to achieve maximum performance is to understand what you are putting in your body and how it benefits you.
Nutrient Absorption Declines with Age
As we age, our body’s ability to break down and absorb nutrients decreases. Argh! Moreover, prescription medication drains essential nutrients from your body. UNBOWED supplements can aid in the replenishing of crucial nutrients.
Exercise Increases Nutrient Needs
Athletes and wolves require energy and nutrients to perform at peak levels. Through fitness and exercise, your body burns nutrients and fuel stored in your body. Replenishing these nutrients is necessary for post-workout recovery.
Increase Metabolic Rate
Metabolism is the process your body uses and burns energy from food. More importantly, your basal metabolism accounts for a considerable amount of the total calories you burn each day during rest. Increasing your metabolic rate allows you to burn more calories during exercise and while at rest.
The UNBOWED non-proprietary pre-workout formula is a game-changing blend of L-Citrulline, Beta-Alanine, Caffeine Anhydrous, Betaine, and L-Theanine. That’s right. We shared the ingredients with exact measurements and quantities. We don't hide what's in our formula because we believe that the best way to achieve maximum performance is to know what you are putting in your body and how it benefits you.
L-citrulline converts to L-arginine, another amino acid in the body. These amino acids boost nitric oxide production, which in turn expands your blood vessels. This vessel-widening ability improves blood flow and blood pressure.
Studies have shown that Beta-alanine, as part of a training program, increases lean body mass. Beta-alanine enhances athletic performance by increasing exercise capacity and decreasing muscle fatigue. It also lessens lactic acid in the muscles.
Caffeine anhydrous—meaning “without water”—is dehydrated caffeine in the form of a highly concentrated powder. Caffeine, in the proper dosage, can aid in fat loss and increased muscular endurance and power.
Found naturally in barley, Hordenine is included in PRE-Workout to stimulate your focus and energy.
Initially discovered in beets, Betaine is a naturally occurring amino acid compound, also known as trimethylglycine or TMG. Betaine is a critical nutrient for heart health. It also aids in liver function and detoxification, as well as digestion. Additionally, betaine improves muscle mass while fat burning—without breaking down muscle tissue or losing muscle mass.
L-theanine is an amino acid that is in tea leaves. It can boost your working memory while reducing stress and improving your sleep.
WHEN TO TAKE IT
You'll get the full benefits for the UNBOWED PRE by taking it 30-60 minutes before you start your workout. We also suggest taking it with a small meal and cutting your dose in half at first to assess your tolerance. Then there's the question of how often can it be taken. Being caffeine is addictive and you don't want to become more tolerant of it, our specialists recommend saving it for those intense workouts that you are utilizing larger muscles such as leg day, chest/back day, or even during HIIT, or cardio sweat sessions like spinning.
To gain muscle, you need to ingest more protein than your body breaks down. UNBOWED Grass-Fed Whey Protein is a more natural, superior tasting product that is fat-free, gluten-free, low in sugar, sodium, and carbs, and free from any artificial coloring.
Add UNBOWED Grass-Fed Whey Protein to your daily routine to build lean muscle mass, ease hunger, and boost your energy level.
WHEN TO TAKE IT
Our Certified Specialist in Fitness Nutrition recommends consuming a protein shake within 15–60 minutes after exercise. This time frame is known as the “anabolic window” known for having the greatest benefits for getting the most of the nutrients.
But wait, there's a difference between consuming a protein shake and a meal replacement shake, and it's very important to know the difference between the two.
A protein shake contains only one macronutrient, protein, and a meal replacement shake contains all three macronutrients.
Depending on your fitness goals it may be important to add a fast-acting carbohydrate pre or post-workout to help replenish your body's glycogen stores that are used as fuel during exercise.
For any other time of the day, again depending on your goals, you will want to add either both a carbohydrate like low-sugar fruits such as berries (the carbs help to provide you sustained energy) and/or a healthy fat such as organic coconut oil (essential for health and bodily functions) to your UNBOWED protein powder. This meal replacement shake contains all three macronutrients and can be enjoyed a couple of times per day.
UNBOWED BCAA is a 3-in-1 supplement designed to take your workout to the next level. Our BCAA supplement is a BCAA/HYDRATOR/GLUTAMINE all in one.
Branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) are an essential protein in the human diet—we need them to live. UNBOWED BCAA contains Leucine, which aids in the healing of skin and bones and increases muscle growth. Isoleucine is an amino acid essential for the repair and rebuilding of muscle. Last is Valine, which increases endurance and prevents muscle soreness.
Coconut water powder is critical in UNBOWED BCAA to deliver 2-3 times more hydration than water alone. Hydration is vital to maximizing physical performance and helps with weight loss.
Supplementing with glutamine can increase your metabolic rate and help prevent infection and inflammation. Glutamine is a source of energy for intestinal and immune cells. If your body requires glutamine, it may begin to break down muscle to release the essential amino acid. Glutamine makes up to 60% of the amino acids in your skeletal muscles.
WHEN TO TAKE IT
It's best to take UNBOWED BCAA supplements up to 15 minutes before a workout, or taken during your workout to prevent further fatigue and with 1 gram of coconut water powder, it delivers 2-3 x more hydration than water alone so we suggest sipping on Piña Colada, Blueberry Sangria, or Lemon Drop BCAA throughout the day, especially during the summer months when you are more at risk of dehydration.
SHED is a thermogenic fat burner that provides you with a massive mood boost, suppresses your appetite, and in short, can help make losing weight easy.
Each ingredient plays an essential role.
Acetyl L-Carnitine aids in energy production by transporting fatty acids into your cells. This form of L-Carnitine additionally acts as a mood and brain booster.
Garcinia Cambogia Extract helps to prevent your body's ability to make fat and curbs your appetite.

Theobromine is a diuretic and muscle relaxant.

Lean GBB, Gamma Butyrobetaine, provides an increase in energy and boosts fat loss.
Yohimbine HCl affects the sympathetic nervous systems to improve blood flow and circulation.
WHEN AND HOW TO TAKE IT
Timing your dose is the most important aspect of SHED because it gives you energy and helps to suppress your appetite. We suggest taking it during the time of day that you feel you need the kickstart most. For some, this is the first thing in the morning and for others, it could be for your mid-afternoon slump, or maybe even 30-minutes before a workout to help you power through, as an alternative to UNBOWED PRE, as 2 capsules of SHED contain 200mg of Caffeine and our PRE contains 250mg.
We suggest starting with one pill at first to assess your tolerance.
SHED is designed to make you sweat. Be sure to drink at least 3-4 quarts of cold water per day to keep you hydrated.
Cycle SHED. If after taking SHED for several weeks you find you no longer feel the effects you did when starting, or you're noticing any side effects, then it's time to take a break—not more product. Take it for 2-4 weeks and then take two weeks off before starting again. Your body will reset and be more sensitive, so you'll get better results when you resume taking it.
SHED is a supplement that was designed to help assist you in reaching your weight-loss goal, it is not intended to be a regular part of your diet. It is a great supplement if you are needing help to reach your goal, prep for a fitness competition, jump start your weight-loss journey, or break a plateau.
