Days 1-5: During this five day loading phase take two servings daily. Consume one serving in the morning immediately upon waking and one serving immediately after your workout. On non-training days take your second serving in the afternoon between meals.
Day 6 on: Only one serving per day is needed. On training days consume Volu-Gro immediately after your workout. On non-training days take Volu-Gro immediately upon waking or in the afternoon between meals.
Important: For best results follow these steps: 1.) Mix Volu-Gro (two level scoops) with 20 oz. of water. 2.) Shake vigorously for 30 seconds. 3.) Drink slowly and stir or shake occasionally to prevent residue build up.
Following these steps will allow Volu-Gro to achieve the optimum low osmolality rate (osmolality defines how fast a solution passes through the stomach; the lower the osmolality rate of a solution the quicker is passes through the stomach), and to further accelerate the crucial transport of creatine, water and Waxy Maize Starch from the stomach to the small intestine and subsequently into the bloodstream. This creates an extremely hypotonic solution with a much lower osmolality rate than any creatine/dextrose mixture, which ensures Volu-Gro’s ultra fast passage through the stomach. Since Volu-Gro passes through the stomach so quickly and is sugar free you will not experience the stomach discomfort which is often associated with creatine and high glycemic sugars (dextrose, maltodextrin).
On training days always consume Volu-Gro immediately after your workout. Volu-Gro is a vastly superior post workout creatine drink because it replenishes muscle glycogen 70% faster than creatine plus dextrose or any other creatine/carbohydrate mixture for that matter. This leads to accelerated muscle recovery, greater cell volumization and better muscle gains. In order to support muscle growth and recovery over the long-term we suggest that you take Volu-Gro for at least 8 weeks. Since Volu-Gro is such a superior post workout creatine drink, it can be consumed year round to aid in muscle recovery.

Nutrex Research Inc. has developed VOLU‑GRO™, which uses 60 grams of a very unique and ultra high-molecular weight carbohydrate called Long Chain Waxy Maize Starch per serving to accelerate creatine transport. Waxy Maize Starch is equally as potent in stimulating insulin as dextrose and maltodextrin, yet unlike these two sugars, Waxy Maize Starch is completely sugar free. Waxy Maize Starch passes through the stomach faster than dextrose or maltodextrin and therefore does not cause any discomfort. In doing so Waxy Maize Starch acts like a pump, pulling creatine and water along with it into the bloodstream. This ensures that creatine and insulin are present in the bloodstream at the same time. A much greater amount of creatine can now be transported into the muscles due to synchronized levels of creatine and insulin in the blood.
Additionally, if taken immediately after training, the Waxy Maize Starch element in VOLU‑GRO restores muscular glycogen (muscle energy) faster than dextrose or maltodextrin. This makes VOLU‑GRO the ideal post workout creatine formula since it not only delivers more creatine to the muscles, but also replenishes glycogen stores much quicker causing the muscle cells to become super-hydrated while speeding up recovery more efficiently than any other glucose polymer or monomer (dextrose, maltodextrin, sucrose, fructose etc.). The overall result is much greater muscle cell volumization, protein synthesis, and nutrient transport; all major factors contributing to enhanced muscle growth. The fusion of creatine with long chain waxy maize starch as seen in VOLU‑GRO has set a new standard in creatine supplementation.
Detailed Facts About VOLU‑GRO
Waxy Maize Starch
Sugar-free ultra-high molecular weight waxy maize starch is the most efficient source to load glycogen and creatine into muscles. Waxy maize starch has an extremely low osmolarity rate and forms a very hypotonic solution when mixed with water. These two factors allow waxy maize starch to pass through the stomach quicker than any other carbohydrate. In doing so it acts like a pump pulling creatine and fluids along with it into the bloodstream.
Consisting of 99% amylopectin waxy maize starch causes a prompt and pronounced insulin spike allowing for glucose and creatine to be pressed into muscle cells for instant cell expansion and super-hydration. Creatine and glycogen loading are maximized.
Waxy maize starch is the ideal carbohydrate source for post-workout recovery as it replenishes muscular glycogen stores at a lightning fast speed hence optimizing full-body recovery.
Creatine supplementation is essential to enhancing the capacity of energy production during high-intensity workouts. Creatine has proven itself, time and time again, to improve exercise performance accounting for gains in strength, power, and repetitive speed work. Long term creatine ingestion also accounts for significant gains in muscle mass accounted for intensity of workouts increasing due to more energy availability and augmentation of myosin heavy chain expression. The harder you train, with increased myogenic regulatory factors from creatine supplementation, the more apt you are to experiencing considerable hypertrophy.
Creatine monohydrate has also claimed its remarked absorption capacity (in comparison with other forms of creatine) especially when in conjunction with the ideal carbohydrate source such as ultra-high molecular weight waxy maize starch.
Magnesium makes a significant contribution to the glycogen loading system of VOLU‑GRO. Muscle and liver glycogen formation from blood glucose is enhanced as a result of magnesium supplementation. Magnesium also serves as an electrolyte, especially when combined with potassium.PhosphorousPhosphorous is a significant component of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), cyclic adenosine monophosphate (AMP), and phosphocreatine. All three are essential to providing energy to the body for all biological processes, enhancing energy provided for exercise performance.
Potassium serves as an imperative electrolyte component for efficacious absorption of nutrients as well as clearing waste products from the body. Furthermore, potassium serves to optimize muscle action and stimulation from respective nerve impulses.
