DefendR is a blend of powerful nutrients to strengthen and support the immune system and enhance athletic performance. Just mix with water for a convenient and delicious dose of nutrients your body needs. (60 servings)
Vitamin C is an essential vitamin for the human body. It supports our immune system and is a great antioxidant. It may help to lower blood pressure, alleviate the common cold and heal infections, reduce chronic pain, aid in collagen synthesis (important for skin and good healing), decrease hardening of the arteries, improve physical performance and increase muscle strength.
The effectiveness of Vitamin C can be very dose-dependent. Research shows it must be taken in high doses for optimum therapeutic response, yet the highest dose typically available is 1000mg, still on the low end of an effective dose. DefendR has 5000mg of Vitamin C per scoop to ensure the body receives the full benefits of this powerful vitamin.
Because Vitamin C is water soluble, a common misconception is that it can’t be helpful because it passes through the system in your urine. That logic is as silly as saying you don’t need water because it passes through your system, as well. Vitamin C is working as it travels through your body, and by the time it’s left your system, its work is done. Because it’s water soluble, it’s almost impossible to get too much Vitamin C, so it’s very safe to maximize dosing and enjoy the positive effects.

Arginine is an amino acid that the body needs for protein synthesis. This helps with muscle recovery after a workout and with muscle endurance. L-Arginine helps increase blood flow by keeping the vessel walls open and flexible. Arginine is most efficient and effective at stimulating the Nitric Oxide (NO) pathway. The discovery of Nitric Oxide as a single molecule was awarded “molecule of the year “ in 1992 and the Nobel Prize in 1998. Nitric Oxide increases blood flow to the muscle to increase muscle growth from exercise and increases lean muscle mass. Because of the mechanism of increased blood flow, Arginine aids in muscle recovery and improves muscle endurance during a workout. Arginine has been shown to naturally increase the release of human growth hormone. This is vastly potentiated if done prior to exercise. Arginine has been shown to improve blood glucose and insulin metabolism. It has been demonstrated to improve immune function, which is important for athletes putting their bodies under stress. Arginine is necessary for the synthesis of creatine that improves muscular development. Arginine taken before exercise has shown to increase time to exhaustion. Because of these factors, Arginine has become a popular pre-workout supplement. However it is usually bottled in too small of a dose. Talos Nutrition put in 5,000mg per serving in our pre-workout formula that is more than double the amount that many pre-workout formulas contain.
Very Important: Many people are misguided by pre-workout formulas containing large amounts of stimulants. The stimulants can help with mental focus and short-term energy. However, stimulants before extreme exercise can actually decrease athletic performance. They tend to increase heart rate, sometimes quite significantly. If you start an extreme workout at an already elevated heart rate you have less margin to maximize athletic performance. Stimulants are more helpful for someone lifting weights and taking breaks without maintaining an elevated heart rate. High endurance athletes such as those doing marathons, triathlons or crossfit, must manage their stimulants carefully or they can be very self-defeating. It is the ingredients mentioned above that do all the work and are good for you. Don’t be misguided by a pre-workout formula just because it has a lot of stimulants in it. In fact, as medical providers we have seen many instances where people seek treatment for conditions caused by taking high dose stimulants in pre-workout formulas.
The MotivatR formula has some caffeine and other natural stimulants in it so people can use it appropriately. If desired it can be mixed and matched with our non-stimulant formula GeneratR so you can get the perfect amount for you based on your training cycle and workout demands.

Other medical uses of Arginine include: lowering blood pressure, reducing heart disease, and improving recovery time after surgery as well as reducing the number of infections and improving wound healing. The drug Viagra is prescribed for erectile dysfunction. Viagra stimulates the Nitric Oxide pathway as L-Arginine. It is a very effective way of treating erectile dysfunction in men and improving overall sexual health.

MobilizR has been formulated with high dose MSM which can keep your joints lubricated, decrease pain and stiffness, and improve shock absorption. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) can ease joint pain, arthritis and inflammation. As we age our joints and cartilage membranes need the extra protection MSM provides to keep them functioning properly, and especially when participating in high intensity exercise. MSM is particularly effective at reducing inflammation and pain, as well as detoxifying the liver.
MSM and Glucosamine have shown to aid in reducing inflammation and are vital building blocks of our joints and cartilage. MobilizR provides MSM in doses that aid in the bodies production of Glutathione, which help speed muscle recovery after exercise, reduce muscle soreness and enhance cell repair.
MSM improves the energy production at the cellular level through the sulfur’s ability to aid in the cell repair process and as an antioxidant, a crucial part of Glutathione. Because we do not get enough sulfur in our diets, supplementing this is essential to help with the physical demands of exercise and in reducing inflammation.

For peak performance, athletes need properly balanced electrolytes, and minerals for your body to
maintain proper water levels, pH of the blood and muscle function. Electrolytes also help cells generate
energy, balance water and fluid inside and outside the cells, improve muscle contraction and nerve
SculptR contains a protein mix of high-grade Whey, Whey Isolate, and Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA). We’ve also included trace minerals, enzymes, probiotics, and Garcinia Cambogia for added benefits. Whey Isolate protein contains all the essential amino acids in higher concentrations than any other protein source, including plant-based proteins. SculptR protein is used to increase muscle mass. Whey Isolate has higher amounts of Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA), which have been shown to increase exercise endurance, increase muscle coordination, decrease muscle soreness, and speed muscle recovery. With 5 additional grams of BCAA in SculptR Protein, athletes don’t have to take BCAA’s separately. Whey Isolate is more hypoallergenic than purely milk based proteins, as much of the potential allergen part of the milk protein and casein have been removed. Whey Isolate also has the advantage of converting to a certain amount of glutathione, a very potent and important antioxidant for our overall health, muscular endurance and recovery. Because Whey Isolate improves glucose and insulin metabolism, it also reduces body fat. Whey protein has proven benefits of improving muscle strength and body composition, boosting activity of the immune system, weight loss (specifically fat loss), preserving muscle loss as we age, reducing blood pressure, reducing cholesterol, reducing cardiovascular disease and improving recovery time. This Whey Isolate protein combination is considered a fast protein, quickly reaching the portion of the gut that absorbs it. Then hydrolysis slows down for greater absorption over a length of time in the small intestine.
Omega-3 fatty acids are an integral part of cell membranes throughout the body. The human body needs essential fatty acids to both make and repair cell membranes and to transport essential minerals around the body. Our bodies can make most types of fats it needs with a few exceptions. Omega-3 fatty acids is one of those. This essential fat is one that the body can’t make from scratch and must get from food and supplementation. Talos Omega-3’s has been formulated with a combination of EPA/DHA omega-3 fish oil concentrate to make getting what you are missing a bit easier.
Talos Omega-3’s have 1532 mg of fish oil, 640 mg EPA/430 mg DHA, concentrated into 2 enteric-coated softgels.
