Nutrabolics doesn't generally create supplements that are similar to any other manufacturers'. Innovative, exciting products are the norm for Nutrabolics, and their supplements are some of the best out there.
Anabolic State is a stand-out in the intra-workout supplement category, featuring BCAA's, glutamine, lysine and the underused supplement HICA. With 10g of amino acids per 12.5g serve, it features one of the highest ratios of important ingredients, and with the aminos micronised, possibly the fastest-absorbing intra-workout supplement there is.
- BCAA's - These ingredients are becoming increasingly popular as a standalone supplement as more research is published to show how beneficial they can be to anyone's training and recovery. The three branched chain amino acids are leucine, isoleucine and valine, and are generally the first ingredients on the panel for any intra-workout supplement. They help to build muscle, improve workout performance, increase endurance, burn fat, protect muscle against breakdown and improve protein synthesis.
- HICA - Leucine is by far the most important branched chain amino acid for muscle growth, and HICA is a metabolite of that amino acid leucine. Research has shown that HICA supplementation of only 1500mg per day results in significant muscle gains in athletes in under a month.
- Glutamine - Glutamine is a common addition to intra-workout supplements as it can protect muscles against breakdown, can help to reduce inflammation and can speed recovery.
Flavours & Sizes
Anabolic State comes in a 375g tub (30 servings), and in Blue Raspberry, Orange and Fruit Punch flavours.
Each 12.5g serving of Anabolic State provides 10g of amino acids, which is excellent. Most people will need only one scoop of Anabolic State, which means that a tub will last for 30 workouts.
Nutrabolics Anabolic State is decent value for an intra-workout supplement. With 10g of amino acids per serve as compared to some competitor's products 6-7g per serve, Anabolic State is dosed well enough so that one serve is sufficient. Anabolic State works out at under $2 per serve.
With the addition of HICA to a solid base of amino acids, Nutrabolics Anabolic State is one of the better intra-workout supplements on the market. With 10g of aminos per serve it's one of the more potent and original BCAA formulas available.
