Creating the Ultimate Physique with Animal Pak

Creating the Ultimate Physique with Animal Pak

In the world of bodybuilding, achieving the highest-level physique is not just a goal; it's a relentless pursuit. The intense physical demands, rigorous training sessions, and strict nutritional requirements often create gaps that even the most well-planned diets struggle to fill.

As a body builder and strength athlete, how do you fill the nutritional gaps required for peak physical performance? That's where a powerhouse multivitamin like Animal Pak steps in, aiming to bridge these nutritional voids and pull every last bit of progress out of your physique.


With bodybuilding we typically stick to a narrow scope of foods, and it gets even less diverse in fat loss phases when those foods are taken away or reduced. This in turn reduces the amount of each micronutrient being consumed. Consuming sub optimal amounts of micronutrients will hinder your performance and recovery all leading to less muscle retention. These vitamins and minerals all have roles to aid in metabolism, hormone production, and function of your macronutrients. Meeting the increased demand for essential vitamins and minerals becomes crucial for supporting energy metabolism, recovery, and overall well-being.

Still think that micronutrients don't matter? Check out these common low intakes found in bodybuilders and how important they are:

● Vitamin D: insulin secretion, testosterone levels, immune function, bone formation
● Magnesium: CHO and fat metabolism, DNA and protein synthesis, blood pressure reduction, sleep quality
● Vitamin E: antioxidant, acne issues, immune function
● Vitamin K: prevents anemia, soft tissue calcification, low cardiac output
● Zinc: needed for muscle and strength, testosterone, immune function
● Iron: oxygen delivery for stamina and endurance
● Calcium: muscle contraction, bone formation
● Iodine and Selenium: thyroid hormone production and T4 to T3 Conversion

Research and common sense show that the conventional "one-size-fits-all" multivitamin falls short in addressing the unique needs of bodybuilders. Despite dietary efforts, low levels of essential nutrients can persist. Personally, I've observed deficiencies in Vitamin D, Magnesium, and Zinc, even when meeting recommended daily allowances. Other athletes I've coached experienced low iron, B12, and folate levels, translating to diminished energy levels, poor sleep, and subpar workouts.

While I advocate a food-first approach, emphasizing a diet with diverse protein, carbohydrate, and fat sources, along with ample fruits and veggies, Animal Pak serves as a nutritional failsafe. When the diet falters, Animal Pak ensures you remain covered.

Animal Pak: A Tailored Solution

Animal Pak transcends the conventional multivitamin, offering a specifically designed formulation for bodybuilders and those pushing their physiques to the limit. It provides a comprehensive blend of key nutrients, essential vitamins, and minerals tailored to meet the distinct needs of bodybuilders.

The Core: Vitamins and Minerals Complex

B Vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B6, B12): Crucial for energy metabolism, B vitamins play a pivotal role in converting food into fuel, supporting the endurance needed during intense workouts.

Vitamin C: An antioxidant powerhouse, it aids in combating oxidative stress induced by heavy training, bolstering the immune system.

Vitamin D: Essential for bone health, Vitamin D helps in calcium absorption, vital for maintaining skeletal strength and integrity.

Zinc and Magnesium: These minerals support muscle function, protein synthesis, and aid in recovery.

Liver Detox Complex

The liver, central to metabolism, receives special attention in Animal Pak. Enriched with potent ingredients like Milk Thistle, known for its liver-protective properties, it aids in detoxification and shields the liver from the stresses of intense training. The combination of Hawthorne, Beet Root, and Turmeric promotes cardiovascular health, enhances blood flow, and provides anti-inflammatory support—essential for bodybuilders.

Performance Optimizers

Eleuthro root (Siberian Ginseng): increase work capacity during strenuous aerobic activity. It also has anti-stress and potential immunity-boosting effects.

Inositol: Plays a role in neurotransmitter signaling, supporting mental focus and cognitive function during workouts.

Choline: Essential for proper nerve function, it contributes to muscle control and coordination.

Antioxidant Blend

Alpha-Lipoic Acid (ALA): A powerful antioxidant, ALA helps neutralize free radicals generated during intense training, supporting overall health and glucose metabolism.

This is still only a fraction of the 85+ nutrients in pak with now 25% less pills with our new formulation.


If you get sick less, sleep better, recover faster, and perform better in the gym this all will equate to more muscle gain overtime. Animal Pak stands as a formidable ally for bodybuilders striving for excellence. By specifically addressing the nutritional needs arising from intense training, Pak has become a staple in the regimens of many elite bodybuilders like me.

Whether it's supporting energy metabolism, enhancing recovery, or fortifying the immune system, Animal Pak provides a comprehensive solution to the nutritional gaps that can hinder getting to your ultimate physique.

Animal Pak is not just a multivitamin; it's a key component in unlocking the full potential of the human body in the pursuit of greatness.
