Tangy Tangerine: Beyond Tangy Tangerine is a great supplement overall because it contains all of the 90 essential vitamins and minerals we need. Adding this to your post-recovery drink ensures you have all of the important nutrients your body needs to perform at optimal capacity throughout your day.
L-Arginine: L-Arginine is proven to stimulate fat metabolism, which aids in weight loss, burns fat, encourages HCH production, increases energy levels, and improves insulin and glucose levels.
L-Glutamine: After strength training or exercise, we developed are micro-tears that in muscles and tissue. Consuming L-Glutamine helps with protein synthesis and helps to build muscle and prevents damage.
NMN: Studies have shown that exercise combined with NMN taken daily increases endurance and rebuilt the skeletal muscle capillaries and density.
Resveratrol: 250 mg of resveratrol a day prevents insulin resistance to help muscle cells take up glucose more efficiently, acts as a fat blocker, increases metabolism, and is great for heart health.
Creatine: Creatine amplifies the effects of working out by improving the quality of excessive you performed, improves endurance, and has a positive effect on neurological function.
Collagen WITH Amino’s: (not in the picture but would be great an addition): Collagen supports overall joint health by helping to repair tissues and cartilage and restores flexibility and bone structure.
Carbon 60: Also not in the picture but when I say it would enhance your workout results, that’s an understatement. Carbon 60 is known as a free radicle sponge because it contains the highest amount of antioxidants. Because of the number of antioxidants carbon 60 contains, carbon 60 is able to improve focus, clarity, agility, mental sharpness, reduce muscle spasms, reduces inflammation, and improves recovery time. These are just the benefits carbon 60 offers post-workout. There are so many benefits you can get from carbon 60 outside of the gym.

The Gatorade is just to add flavor if needed. Beyond Tangy Tangerine does add a tangerine flavor so that might be all you need.
