Get complete recovery with Fallout Advanced Muscle & Joint Recovery.
Fallout is an advanced recovery formula designed to provide COMPLETE recovery. Exercise causes your muscles to work hard, but your joints, tendons, and connective tissue are also being pushed. The soreness you feel is not only brought on by your muscles, but by all of your connective tissue as well. Fallout combines an advanced blend of muscle recovery, joint/connective tissue recovery, endurance, and antioxidant/anti-inflammatory ingredients to give you the most complete recovery formula available. Fallout provides complete recovery by targeting 4 separate pathways: muscle recovery, endurance, joint/connective tissue, and antioxidants/anti-inflammatory.
What kind of results can I expect from Fallout?
Reduce Soreness – Fallout contains ingredients to reduce inflammation and buffer lactic acid reducing soreness.
Recover muscles, joints, tendons, & connective tissue – Fallout is the first formula of its kind to induce muscle recovery, joint recovery, and connective tissue recovery.
Reduce inflammation – The combined forces of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Selenium inhibit inflammation to reduce soreness and improve recovery time.
Increased muscular endurance – Fallout improves your muscular endurance by buffering lactic acid, maintaining fluid balance, and providing healthy fats and MCT’s.
What is in Fallout?
Your muscles need specific ingredients in order to activate recovery and growth. Fallout uses a scientifically-proven blend of BCAA’s and glutamine to give you the best muscle recovery possible.
As you train, you physically damage your muscles, causing your body the need to repair itself. The key to proper recovery is protein synthesis – your body uses amino acids (broken down from protein) to rebuild the damaged muscle.Although your body is able to break down amino acids from protein, supplementing extra branched chain amino acids (leucine, isoleucine, and valine) helps to act as a switch, informing your body to build muscle. Not only do these extra amino acids trigger recovery, but they also minimize the damage done to the muscle during intense exercise while maintaining the same level of muscle-building signals. If that weren’t enough, they are also an excellent source of energy for working muscles, allowing your body to work longer and harder.
Fallout uses the research-proven blend of 2:1:1 leucine, isoleucine, and valine.

Similar to branched chain amino acids, glutamine is an amino acid necessary for muscle repair. Glutamine acts as a nitrogen shuttle and provides fuel to many different cells in the body. It is a semi-essential amino acid, meaning that under normal conditions, your body is able to produce its own glutamine. However, in times of oxidative stress (such as a workout), the body is unable to produce enough glutamine to maintain nitrogen balance, causing muscle loss. Supplementation of glutamine has been proven to dramatically reduce muscle damage and improve recovery times in training athletes. It also has some very positive immune system, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties making it a staple in post-workout recovery.

Performance is the name of the game. Fallout is designed to enhance your workout performance by providing energy to the muscle, delaying muscle fatigue, and maintaining electrolyte balance.
During high-intensity exercise, the breakdown of ATP results in the creation of hydrogen ions (H+). As H+ accumulates, pH drops and the muscle becomes increasingly acidic. This acidic environment slows the anaerobic energy process and eventually causes the muscle to stop contracting. It is this acidity that is responsible for the muscle soreness that you feel after intense exercise. Beta-Alanine combats this process by boosting the synthesis of carnosine. Carnosine maintains stable pH by soaking up hydrogen ions and decreasing the acidity of the muscle. By acting as an intracellular buffer, carnosine allows muscles to forcibly contract for much longer periods of time. Beta-Alanine will permit your muscles to perform at optimal strength and endurance levels for longer periods.

Electrolytes are the key to intracellular hydration. Water consumption typically provides extracellular hydration (outside the muscle) but electrolytes are necessary to draw water into the muscles. When cells absorb water and swell, the body is put into an anabolic state, promoting muscle gain and quick recovery. However, when intramuscular cells are dehydrated, the cells are in a catabolic state, causing a loss of muscle and inflammation.
All electrolytes work together to maintain fluid balance, particularly sodium, potassium, and chloride. Fallout contains an optimal balance of electrolytes to ensure proper muscular hydration and prevent cramping.

MCT’s & Coconut Powder
Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT’s) are fats that are very different from the Long Chain Triglycerides found in most fatty foods. Long-chain triglycerides must be digested with enzymes from the liver while medium chain triglycerides are passively absorbed by the intestinal tract into the bloodstream. This quick digestion makes them available to the body as a source of rapid energy similar to a carbohydrate. Consumption of MCT’s has also been shown to increase the rate of fat oxidation and diminish fat storage.

Joint & Connective Tissue Recovery
Muscle cells are surrounded and encased in a labyrinth of tissue that responds and recovers very differently than muscles. We couldn’t call Fallout a complete recovery formula unless we included ingredients to recover and repair joints and connective tissue. This is why we added a blend of ingredients scientifically proven to strengthen your tissues and joints that get beat down every time you work out.
Glucosamine & Chondroitin
Much like BCAA’s are the building blocks of muscle, glucosamine is an amino sugar that the body uses to build cartilage. Chondroitin is a complex carbohydrate that helps cartilage retain water. Both are produced naturally by the body but in times of stress, the body is unable to produce enough to meet the demand. Supplementing glucosamine and chondroitin is effective not only at healing cartilage, but also in keeping joints and tissues healthy, preventing injury in the first place.

Connective tissue is held in place primarily by sulfur bonds. MSM, or methylsulfonylmethane, strengthens tissue bonds by delivering sulfur to the body in a useable way. It has a synergistic effect along with glucosamine and chondroitin to maintain tissue and strengthen joint structure.

Studies have shown that athletes produce more free radicals than the untrained individual, especially in the endurance athlete.
Fallout can be taken pre-workout, intra-workout, or post-workout. Mix one scoop with 8oz water and consume. For post-workout glycogen replenishment, mix with 8oz fruit juice.
**Note** You may feel a tingling sensation on the skin when taking Fallout. This is caused by the beta-alanine and is not harmful. If this is uncomfortable, it may help to consume Fallout with food.
